Well, the hiatus is over. I said that I was going to take time off from blogging until I figured out what I'm going to do school-wise and a solution has arrived. I've been accepted to transfer down to East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. This is one of the 16 UNC campuses, thus it's a state school which makes it exceptionally more affordable than my two previous schools (both private schools). I'm transferring in as a Junior (which makes this my 3rd Junior year - I really just love not ever being a senior). A semester off from school has assured me I'm meant for academia - I've been miserable. I've wanted papers and tests and such. I've gotten a lot of good reading in on my own (re-reading N.T. Wright's New Testament and the People of God, E.P. Sanders Jesus and Judaism, Bultmann's Theology of the New Testament, and a variety of other books). So, this is very good news and I'm really looking forward to moving ahead with my education.
