About Me

I was born, I'm currently living, and will eventually die. After that I face my judgment, and we'll talk then.

Done did it

Well, I am finished (i hope) with Apologetics. I took the midterm on Tuesday (50%) and today I delivered my presentation (the other 50%). It seemed that it went over well, and the questions were not that harsh. See the earlier post on the Project. The Theologian was most supportive of my defense after i gave it. I hope we manage to not have the final, because that will probably break my heart.

Well, only 35 papers left to write.

Holy. . .

I leave this title unfinished for whoever to fill in with their desired conclusion. I found out something interesting today. But first, some backstory. . .

My little brother tried out for the JV baseball team at his school (he didn't make it, but that's not important right now). but in order for him to try out he had to sell a certain amount of tickets for this raffle. Ok, its a raffle of sorts. Your number isn't drawn from a hat. Its based on the "Pick Three" Maryland Lottery each night. Whatever number they draw, thats the number for the night. For weekdays the winnings are $50, but on Saturday the winnings are $200. Well, for those who haven't guessed where I'm going, I won last Saturday (St. Patrick's day, of all days), thus winning $200. Well, my mom told me that earlier today, when I called her. Well, she just called me like an hour ago, and said I won for tonight. I looked myself, and lo and behold, the winning number is mine. But not only that, the number is the same one that won me the $200.

I think my prayers at the beginning of the year for God to help me with my money needs has been answered.

And I've got all the things I need to write up my Apologetics presentation. The Play's this weekend. I'm excited. Are you excited?

Things are coming together.

Well, now I'm back at school. Break was a lovely break, with sevearal movies seen (You, READER! Go, leave your computer now, and go rent The Prestige and The Illusionist. They are excellent.), some reading finished (no more Von Balthasar) and some more of that fun reading for the Apologetics presentation, which hopefully will go well. I hope I don't get ripped apart by my fellows.

Speaking of hellish weeks (not hell week, for I'm not in the play. Poor kids, that all starts next week), The last week in March is very, um, oh, I'll just say it. Its gonna be Hell. But enough about that.

I'm working on an article right now showing that Gladiator is a Senecan Drama. Don't worry if you don't know what I'm talking about. It will all make sense in time.

Break (and a minor rant)

Well, here I am. On Spring Break. At home.


My sister Clare has just been confirmed. She took the name Philomena, which means she has completely taken over my birthday with her feast days. Stinks. But anyway, this is a joyous occasion, because she now is filled with graces that many people in this country do not have and will not get for several years. I am refering to the horrible trend throughout the country of dioceses pushing confirmation ages later and later, some waiting until the confimande are 16, others refusing to allow the sacrament on those under 18. Yet what does that lead to, but hundreds of youth unready for the world, shoved into it without the graces of the great sacrament of Confirmation.

Enough of that rant though; that is for another time.

So I have more stuff to read, namely to catch up on my Von Balthasar reading for Historiography, read some Agrarian stuff (knda not the most excited about that, but at least it doesn't look to hard to read), go over some of my books for the Apologetics presentation (ahh), and still keep sane.

Break. Right.
