I didn't fall COMPLETELY off the face of the Earth...

Okay, so I haven't posted in over a month. I know, I know. Not good. There were a few times throughout this past winter break from classes that I thought about abolishing this site altogether since it's just taking up space and I hadn't had the dedication to keep up with it, but I have instead decided to persist. This blog plays a very important role in my life, especially while I'm taking new classes. I use this blog as a means of expressing my more life-altering findings and challenges with the hope that people will respond to my queries. It's a sounding board for my academic and emotional struggles that I encounter because of the subject matter I have submitted myself to. In that respect, this blog still has a very important role to play in my life, and although I took a brief hiatus, I intend to keep it alive until. In a way, I need this blog to keep my sanity throughout the semester, so thank you to everyone who has read any of it, and especially thank you to those who decided to comment from time to time. You have no idea how much it means to me.

That being said, I'm back at Drury with a full load, and I expect to have lots and lots to write about in the coming months. I'm taking Intro to the Bible, which has already proved to be very, very interesting (who knew that the Bible we have today really isn't inerrant? ;) ). I'm also enrolled in Middle Eastern Religion (very relevant for this day and age), Confucian Virtue Ethics, Global Awareness (gen. ed. coarse on cultural differences), and Philosophy of Religion. On top of that I'm still an RA, I have to maintain my music scholarships by playing in Drury's ensembles, and I recently received a full scholarship to the Springfield Ballet Company, which is a VERY exciting opportunity for me. A busy semester indeed!

This is just a small post to let everyone know I'm back and I'm ready for whatever Drury will throw at me this semester. It's also to let whoever reads this blog know that I appreciate you. I need you. I need your advice, your input, your encouragement, your critiques, your anything. We're all in this life together, and this online community that we all participate in has a delightful way of reminding me that. So here's to a new semester. May it bring us all one step closer to finding truth and happiness.
