Quick update

School has begun, hurray! Aside from that there isn't much to say. Yesterday and today have been filled with orientation stuff mostly. I already have a bunch of work to do though. They have given us so much paperwork to read, and forms to fill out, it's exhausting.

There will be orientation throughout the August term, but the two classes being taught are: Oral Interpretation of Scripture, and a language class (Greek or Hebrew). I have a bunch of reading to do before Monday and some Greek homework.

They went over registering for Fall courses with us today. 1st year students don't have many choices because there are several classes that you have to get out of the way before doing anything else.

I am getting used to the place. Everyone is very nice, but I haven't connected with anyone in particular yet. I'm getting used to sitting down with a bunch of strangers at meal time and having a little small talk, but nothing more. At least I am resisting the urge to sit alone at an empty table, so that is something.

I am excited about diving into the work. Hopefully my year of Greek at UCLA will start coming back to me, that will make it so much easier.

I'll let you know if anything exciting happens.

  1. Shireen so great that classes have started!!! Like reading your blog.
    Miss you at St. T's... Mind you Sunday attendance has been up; perhaps Fr. Ian should take more Mo. G preached a great sermon and celebrated a superb High Mass, and Fr. Cox's sermons have been on the ball. Enjoy school... Reece
