The sound of silence

I was asked today why I haven't updated my blog in such a long time. There are several reasons for this.

  1. The World Cup is over and the new season of the English Premier League hasn't started yet
  2. I have been busy studying Biblical Hebrew in an intensive eight week course through the summer. As such I have had very little going on in my life worth blogging about.
  3. There has very little time to do much reading this summer since most of my time has been taken up with trying to memorise vocabulary, verbal stems, and other grammatical idiosyncrasies of a strange and wonderful language. (the upside of this is that I can actually read portions of Judges 3 and actually understand some of what it says in my Hebrew Bible!)
  4. ...and ultimately, the truth is... I'm just too lazy to keep up with it!
Don't worry folks... I have only 4 more classes to go and a final. So I should be back in a couple of weeks. (Is this ok with you, Janelle?)
