Whew. It feels like it's been a month since I updated this thing, but I guess it's only been a couple of weeks. Needless to say, lots has happened in that period of time!
But first, the good news, which I can officially announce via the internet...Rick and I are getting married!!!!!!!! : ) He asked me after we went out to dinner on the 13th, and of course I said yes. So now planning has commenced, and we're both really excited (favorite thing of the moment: Rick will smile, lean over, and whisper in my ear "We're gonna be married!"- it's nice to have a fiance who is just as excited as I am.). So yeah, the wedding will be next summer on July 25th. Woot woot!
Other than that, school started yesterday. I had a wonderful Shakespeare seminar downtown. The prof is hilarious! Then prayer book yesterday afternoon which was also good. Today I've got Dante, tomorrow senior colloquium (Affectionately called mass class) and Tuesday I'll have my other seminar downtown- Law religion and literature in post revolutionary England (I'm excited about that class). So not too bad. And now that part of my loan has come in I can schedule the GRE and get started on the PhD applications. The new Reformation professor here at YDS said he'd help out as much as he can as I start applying, so that's good.
Yep. Things are going well. And my sister is coming to visit in a little over a month! I hope the weather is good, but if not there are still some great things I'm hoping we can do. The apples are already ripe for picking, but I think there will still be some then. So we'll see.
For those who were wondering, I preached yesterday morning and everyone seemed to like the sermon. So yay! And the service last night, which I spent days planning, went really well also! I slept in this morning to recuperate (I was exhausted yesterday, to say the least). So now it's time to get ready for another day of school.
