I read the entire Hunger Games series in a week. I can’t believe it’s already over. It was pretty incredible. I am not quite done processing it to write a review, but I will. I want to get back to blogging but haven’t yet figured out how to make it a habit. More to come [...]
I’m reviving this blog in the near future. It’s been a crazy year. Trying to figure out what to write and how. More coming soon…
So yesterday I talked about decompressing and what it looks like for me as well as how it’s an integral part of rest. If decompressing is largely focused on giving your brain a break on the amount of information it receives, recharging is filling up your emotional gas tank. It’s doing something that gives you energy again.
So this quarter has been tough. Not because Greek is exceptionally hard. Doing it as an intensive is just a bit demanding. Having one’s brain so thoroughly focused on one thing all the time drains you. As a result, you need to do to things to keep yourself happy and avoid insanity: decompress and recharge. I’m realizing these two are very different things.
Catalyst West was awesome. This week was actually pretty awesome as a whole minus last night’s getting rear ended on the 5 Freeway. I’ve been collecting ideas for blog posts for about a week now. Had a moment of inspiration that spurred the whole thing. So, starting Monday morning, you should see regular posts from me.
Two weeks into the New Testament Greek Intensive and things are pretty crazy. Like really crazy. It’s a back and forth pattern of getting up really early and sleeping in really late. I’ve accidentally figured out that I remember more Greek for the quizzes if I study it all that morning before. What makes that even better is that I can get the homework done faster if I do it that morning as well. So this week, I’ve gotten up around 4 am after going to bed at 9 pm. It gives me plenty of time to do all my work for class and be fairly well rested. By the time I get home, I’m ready for a nap. And I’m not just talking a nap, but a naaaaap.
