I haven’t done much blogging lately. I’ve been busier than usual and I don’t expect that to get much better until finals are out of the way.
Everything except school is going well, and even law school isn’t going badly, I just hate the experience very much. I’m sick of going to classes, reading cases, the whole nine yards. It is tedious and boring to study so much of one subject, and frankly I think L-school is drumming out of me the last vestiges of loving the law. — But overall I guess it’s not too bad. I just have to be ready for finals, take those stupid tests and be done with it. It won’t be long before it is all over I guess.
But really other than school things are going exceptionally well. I’ve been doing quite a bit of work on the commentary project which is a joyful thing to me and I’ve also started working again on taking a couple of online graduate Bible classes at Nations University. (See my earlier post about Nations U from Dec. 1, 2002) I’m working on finishing two introductory classes (The Hebrew Scripture and The Greek Scriptures) that you have to take to be fully admitted into the program. Both classes are not difficult but I am having to do some review to be able to do well on the tests.
Talking about taking those classes brings me to another subject… my future after L-school. I think I now have a good bit of clarity now and I am pretty certain that I do not want to practice law for my entire life. I do think I’ll practice it for a few years for financial reasons but I really see my career as being in some area of ministry more than I do the law. — Actually this probably sounds nuts but I would love to teach in a Seminary. I know it sounds insane and would take entirely too much education to do but I can’t think of anything that would be more satisfying in many ways. It seems crazy that all of my time in L-school I spend wishing I was studying theological and Biblical subjects instead of the law that I am supposed to be studying. Maybe it would be good to do something with that instead. — I gotta say too though that Luther movie really made me think about everything (especially since Luther QUIT LAW SCHOOL to pursue the ministry… hahaha, of course I don’t think I will quit L-school. I’ve gone this far I might as well finish it, but then again maybe I just chicken.)
