Dreams? February 23, 2007Posted by Emily in : Uncategorized , comments closed
“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. ”
-Thomas Edward Lawrence
I’ve been thinking a lot about dreams lately as well. For example, what happens when two dreams clash and can’t be fulfilled? Anyway…it’s kinda late and I want to go to bed on time tonight….maybe I’ll explain more tomorrow…

“What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness,
Anger, discontent and drooping hopes?
Degenerate sons and daughters,
Life is too strong for you —
It takes life to love Life.”
Edgar Lee Masters
Spoon River Anthology – “Lucinda Matlock”
We talked about Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology today in American Lit class (I finally get something out of that class that made me think!). Usually American Lit becomes a lecture on American history or a discussion between a certain student and Prof. Dengler, but I really enjoyed class today. Unfortunately I still have a paper to write for that class for tomorrow… 🙁
My friends and I also had a discussion on women in church offices at lunch today. We’re all kinda set in our ways and it really didn’t look like that discussion was going to get anywhere…Personally, I don’t think it’s such a big issue and I just wish that Synod would vote on it.
Theology class was “enlightening” as always (I don’t know if that’s the best word for it…). Everything always seems to make complete sense in that class…I don’t know why. It’s nice that Mr. Lief and my dad agree on so many things though… 🙂
I’m conducting an interview with a guy from the Equality Ride that’s coming to Dordt to go in the next Diamond. I’m really interested in what he’ll have to say about why they chose to come to Dordt and how they feel about the whole thing…
Anyway, I told myself this paper was going to get written before I go to the Grille and Praise and Worship (hopefully) tonight, so I better get on that one! 🙂
Have a great Ash Wednesday!
Random Thoughts About Random Subjects February 19, 2007Posted by Emily in : Random Thoughts , comments closed
I’m still in my “busy week”…I wish it would be “lazy week” already, but that won’t happen until after I get my American Lit paper written, unfortunately. I think I did pretty well on the test though.I’ve also realized that having your own dorm room isn’t quite all it is cracked up to be…you miss out on a lot of interesting late-night conversations and random odd things that happen in the middle of the night. However, in my current situation, it’s not so bad. I quite enjoy it on occasion. It lets me get homework accomplished…sometimes.
Anyway, speaking of homework, my Historiography paper and Astronomy notes are calling for me….better go see what they want! 😉
Procrastination February 17, 2007Posted by Emily in : Random Thoughts , comments closed
So, I’m trying the blog thing out again while I procrastinate on writing my Historiography paper (yes Dad, I know I promised I’d start writing, but there’s too many other things to do on a computer!) Not a lot is going on, like usual, just the loads of homework and classes to go to and sleep deprivation that go along with college. Last night I went out for chinese and then went to the hockey game (Dordt lost, unfortunately) and it was great to get out of the dorm and off campus for awhile. Anyway, I should procrastinate too much longer on that paper….
