I Will Either be Enlightened or Insane . . . Here's to Enlightenment

So I have begun the arduous task of researching my finals questions. One thing that was really reassuring to me is that when I took a really good look at my bookshelves today I found quite a bit of information on the three topics right in my very own library!

I suppose that means that I must have learned some of this stuff during my four years of gradual school because the lion's share of books in my library are textbooks for classes I have taken. Although I do love the Red Cross Book Fair every year and usually come home with a big box of books on theology and religion.

I have begun to read through the books and put post-it tabs on pages that will be useful in my essays. Now I just have to figure out how to start the essays.
I suppose it would make more sense to do them one at a time in sequential order, but I know myself too well to think that is how I will do them. I will most likely work on one until I am stuck and then move onto another topic for a bit and probably end up working on all three simultaneously. So long as I get them done by November 18th (they are due November 20th so I want to give myself a few days advance to get them in).

I have decided to set up a small table in my bedroom (my computer is in the bedroom.) so that I can keep all the books and articles organized by topic. Mrangelmeg shouldn't mind it will be on my side of the room.

If anyone needs prayers please let me know, I will offer up all of my "suffering" as I write these essays for the needs of other people. That way my suffering becomes salvific and not a useless endeavor.

I may not be able to write on my blog as often. On the other hand I may post snippets of my work to get reaction from my loyal readers (all three of you).
