I have two important exams this week, one tomorrow and one on Saturday. Unfortunately, my revision for both exams has been minimal. I haven’t been feeling too great over the last couple of weeks and over the last few days I have found it hard to focus on my studies. There are so many odd jobs that come to one’s attention when one has to prepare for an exam.
I can’t wait until these exams are over and I can enjoy three weeks off. I hope to spend much of those weeks working on my languages: Hebrew, Greek, French and Chinese. I might even start working on some German. I also look forward to doing some more focused reading and prayer, to learning some Chinese cooking and preparing a few special meals, starting to learn how to ride the unicycle, having a few bicycle rides, finishing the jumper that I am presently knitting (I have found lots of time to knit during my revision period; I record my revision notes into the computer and play them back to myself while I knit), making a video or two, getting back into a couple of games of Civilization IV that I started last term with some friends and playing the Seafarers of Catan expansion pack for the first time.
I also hope that the posting on this blog will improve both in quantity and quality during the break. Finishing my N.T. Wright talks is near the top of my to-do list at the moment.
However, all of this must be put to the back of my mind until Saturday afternoon…
