Five days until Spring Break.  ;D
What's Spring Break? ;) :(

 There's no such thing as Spring Break for the workin' man.  :D  BTW, who's the man in your current avatar?

LOL!  I didn't mean to say or imply that at all.  I meant that teachers still sometimes go in to work, still have to get their lesson plans in order, they might meet with the principle or other admins; there's a whole host of things they have to do during spring break...

Haha. I decided that this spring break I really do need relax. I will be doing minimal school work.  :)

Minimal is the right word. When I say I've taken a holiday off, I really mean I've worked for less than an hour. As I've said before, many think teaching is a 9-3 job; it's actually an August-May job, followed by our May-August job, planning for next year.

Agreed. Then add to this the fact that many teachers teach summer school and/or night classes to provide themsleves with a better wage (I do both).

I think by about 20 glasses I'd be gone.  If I did make it to 40, I'd wake up tomorrow wishing I'd been beheaded.

Depends on who made the Ţuică (Romanian plum brandy).  I had three glasses of some not-so-good stuff once and thought my lungs were going to catch on fire, plus I lost all sense of taste for a few hours.  :D

Signs you might be Russian Orthodox:

• On Wednesdays and Fridays you eat Japanese food.

• You’re used to skipping breakfast on Sundays.

• You can automatically subtract 13 days from today’s date.

• On your first encounter with long words, you pronounce them stressing the ‘next to the next to last’ syllable.

• You wonder why the Pope crosses himself backwards when you see him on TV.

• You wear comfortable shoes to church, because you know you’ll be standing a long, long time.

• To you, a ‘topless’ gal is one without a headscarf.

• You get great deals on Christmas trees and Easter candy.

• You spend time figuring out the best way to remove smoke stains from your ceiling.

• When you see a shopping-mall Santa, your first instinct is to hold out your hands to get his blessing.

None. Orthodoxy never changes, and, in addition to burning candles like the Roman Catholics, uses oil-burning lamps. ‘Electricity is for those Gregorian calendar-using, liberal ecumenist jurisdictions.’

Just got back from the oral surgeon. Blah. What an experience. I didn't even get the satisfaction of feeling good during the procedure. And now I have this stupid gauze in my mouth for the next day or so, and am stuck eating nothing but things like Jello and pudding. Ok, the pudding part isn't so bad.

I have a food culture and religion class, and we had to do a report on a food related to a religion or ethnicity different than our own. I was suprised that in the 10-12 reports I heard, there were 3 reports on Orthodoxy (one on Russian Christmas, one on Greek Easter, and one on the Eastern European Easter basket practices of some Orthodox).

In the fall I have to take a 'Science Studies' course to fulfil my breadth.  It is an attempt to analyse science from a social science / humanities view and make us more 'well-rounded'.  One of the available courses is about the relationship (and conflict) between science and religion, focusing on everything from cosmology to evolution.  The professor is not only the faculty liaison with the Freethought club, but also a biophysicist.  Science, FTW.   ;D

Not sure what you hope to gain from all that, but I doubt if you will gain Christ. I suggest your forego these studies and pray to God for wisdom. Read the book of Ecclesiastes repeatedly; it contains all the cosmology you need to know.

I guessed as much. But since he is letting us know his plans, I felt compelled to suggest a more profitable plan to him (as arrogant and condescending as it may have sounded.) I truly meant my advice in all sincerity and love.

Since I don't believe 'gaining Christ' means gaining anything in particular, forgoing these studies is a path I would not take.  I've read Ecclesiastes many times, and I wasn't particularly moved by it.
