Mom and I decided that a good goal for me to strive towards before I officially graduate is to make a handwritten copy of the New Testament.
Anyone who heard Jonathan Lindvall speak a few weeks ago will not wonder where this idea came from. His children will do the entire Bible though (wow!).
I thought about trying to do the whole Bible, but discarded the thought after 5 seconds of meditation. I can hardly read through the Bible in a year, much less write it all out.
With that said, I hope that I will one day write the Old Testament as well.
We decided that I should do this for numerous reasons, a few of which I will list here:
1) It would be a wonderful and educational discipline
2) I would like to be able to pass it down in my family (how cool would that be?!)
3) I like having a goal to strive towards. When people say, "When do you graduate?" I can say "As soon as I finish the rest of my work" and state how much time it will take to finish from where I am at that point.
Well, I miss James and Christian in blog-world. I will forgive James though because I understand that he is very busy and has much on his plate.
Christian, however...well...I'll assume that he is using his time more efficiently than posting on a blog and forgive him as well :)
