Crazy to think how fast it has gone by! I've really enjoyed my first semester of seminary. I'm still getting into the swing of things. I don't feel like I totally "get it" yet, but I'm enjoying the ride...for the most part. ;-)
I already picked my classes for the winter and spring semesters. The winter term is known as a "J-term" around here. It's a two week course during winter break. We have a really long winter break here, so I thought it would be wise to knock out a class since I'll probably have so much free time. I'll be taking Counseling Theory, Monday - Friday from 8am-12:30pm for two weeks straight. I haven't had an 8am class since I was a freshman in college. There's a reason I quit taking 8 am classes. That is just TOO early in the morning! However, since it's only for two weeks I think I'll be able to survive...pray for me. ;-)
For the spring term I'm taking Christian Ethics, New Testament 2, Christian Theology 2, and my fourth class is the one I'm most excited about. It's a mission trip to Mexico in April. I'm excited because it'll be my first mission trip, I'm getting seminary credit for it, and my husband gets to come too! We'll be there for a week during our spring break. We are basically running a baseball camp for kids and also presenting them with the Gospel. I volunteered to be the "media director," which really just means I get to run around and take pictures of everyone and everything.
I'm really eager for the spring semester to begin...but of course I have to get through the rest of this semester first. I still have a few papers to write and exams to pass. So I have to buckle down and get things done.
