How bout a break from story-telling?

April 16, 2009 — 1 Comment

I figure after 10 parts maybe we could take a break of sorts.

Not an extended break, just you know, to try and stretch things out until the wedding?

Also, I have a vague feeling (most of them are) that people might be interested in my various thought vomits about life in Dallas.

And I would like to capitalize on the heightened traffic to the blog.

Where were you all when it was just me talking about me?

Actually, come to think of it, maybe a break is a bad idea, since nobody really read my blog until I piqued your curosity by getting engaged without even mentioning dating anyone.

Then you were like, “What the heck?”

Well I guess you should been reading my blog.

Probably, I know you’ve got better things to do.

Heck, I’ve got better things to do.

But here we are.

So anyway, this will get more interesting as I take more breaks from the flow of the story.

In the meantime, here’s something to ponder.

After forced class attendance at Word of Life, and then virtual class attendance for the rest of my degree, it has been hard to adjust to real classes.

You know, the kind that meet twice a week or so, and don’t come compliments with a seating RA to take attendance and know whether you’re there or not.

It’s hard getting the right balance of class attendance, class participation, and class abscences.

I think I’m getting the hang of it.

They give us up to 4 skips per class before it affects your grade (assuming you’re honest enough to report your own attendance)

I feel as if we have those 4 skips for a reason, so I am generally faithful in making use of them.

Not becuase I’m busy doing other things, or need the extra time to get homework done.

Goodness no, what do you think is?

No, I skip class to sleep late, take naps, go to the gym, sit around and pleasure read (like the real kind that doesn’t involve theoretical concepts in either the scientific or philosophical realm), watch Hulu, blog, clean the apartment, or even sit around the pool and stare vacantly off in the general direction of the downtown skyline.

I lied about that last one, although once I did intentionally just sit and make myself do nothing but watch the sunset.

Point being, so far, I’ve got one skip left to use in each of my classes.

The question to you dear reader then, is what should I use them for?

Bear in mind that, “catch up on homework is a silly answer,” since we all know that can be done while actually in class (which is where the class participation balance comes in, I never claimed to always “be there” when I’m in class)

I generally find that there is certain sense of satisfaction in playing hooky for no real good reason.

So that in mind, what should I do instead of a 745 Hebrew class, a 910 Greek class, and a 100 Church History class?

I’m counting on you, don’t let me down on this one.

  1. I’d say looking at Derek Webb’s twitter, finding out his location and hanging out with him. But you already knew that. So I’d recommend going to your local apple store and just enjoy the atmosphere.
