It's been a while...

I feel like I should be getting back into this.  I miss it.



But since I haven't done it lately I don't know where to begin.


I've got my laptop back now.  It's been on the fritz since May.  My dad got it working again.  Except that when you put the battery in, it goes to sleep.

Which is bizarre.

But other than that, it works, and I am glad.  Especially since school is starting in a few days.


Which is another topic.

By the time I finish buying books for this semester, I'll have spent about $400.
Not sweet.

But I am pretty excited about my classes.  Elementary New Testament Greek, Philosophy of Ministry, Introduction to Missions, and Biology.  Well, I'm excited about everything but Biology.  Especially since the two books I need are $100 apiece.

My job this year is going to be a little harder too.  Last year I worked for the Help Desk, but I didn't actually work at the Help Desk, I just worked in the labs.  Which was cool, cause I didn't think I could handle trying to help people over the phone.  But this year I'm working at the Help Desk, and I am terrified.  I don't really know that much about fixing computers, and I feel like it'll be harder over the phone.  Plus, my boss is going to listen in to one of our calls every month and evaluate us.

I'm scared.  I think I will have the people skills to be able to handle it.  I don't think I have the technology skills to be able to handle it.  I'm not really sure which is more important.  Hopefully the former.


I should probably get to bed soon.  Freshmen move in  tomorrow, and I have to work NSO.  Which I think stands for New Student Organization, but in Technology Services, it means No Student Offline.

Oh how clever.

Um, if they still use the same book for greek that they used to (I think), I have a copy of it that you could use . . . and i think it's a newer edition. Just putting that out there.

The ones I'm needing are:

The Greek New Testament With Greek-english Dictionary

Basics of Biblical Greek
Author: William D. Mounce

Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar
Author: William D. Mounce

If you have one that would be AWESOME.
