I'm very nearly done all of the paperwork for my Duke of Edinburgh award.
Seriously, I'm accomplished. I'll have certificates and awards saying that I've actually done stuff.
...how did this happen?

So, I met with The Professor and we discussed if I could and what I should be studying in a special topics class. Last year we were thinking of doing an historical and etymological examination of the concept of "home," but now after doing Old English and The History of the English Language, he thinks I'll be challenged by Middle English.
So for the first few weeks I'll be writing up a guide to different ME dialects, and then I'll be working with one text, a poem from "The Infancy of Christ" and I'll be examining it phonologically, morphologically, syntactically, lexically...at this point he looked up and said "am I forgetting anything?" and I piped up "Graphologically?" and he got this gleam in his eyes and went "Oh! Paleography!" and wrote that down too.
I'm 85% "OMGYAYE!" and 15% "What the hell have I gotten myself into?"
I wasn't able to get my course switched over today. And I'm supposed to meet with Richling about doing the double honours. And I still don't know what the requirements for the English double honours is yet. And what if I can't switch my courses? I'm fucked. Arrgh.
The weather has decided to be summer today. I'm not displeased, but not entirely pleased with this, either. I fear this has turned into a misery journal. Happy thoughts! Fuffy kittens! Nikolaj!

This bloodthirsty Son-killing or self-killing Father, who was one but also three; who professed to want good, but created evil; who pretended to love his mortal children while preparing for them a hell sadistic beyond belief; who ordained all things in advance, yet held humans entirely responsible for the errors he knew they would makel who talked of love and ruled by fear- this deity was hardly a product of rational minds.
Nonetheless, the women's spirituality movement has much to learn from close study of this God, created in the image of man, for he tells more about men than men can tell about themselves. This God and other violent gods created by men demonstrate the power of love cannot control men's lust to destroy their own species. It seems the only emotion that controls men effectively is fear.
