Because the boy is too shy…

… to let the interweb know the crazy amount of work he has left to do, I will. Marc typed out all of the assignments he has left between now and December 17th, just 3.5 weeks away, printed it, and brought me the paper that lists the madness:

  1. Nov 24 – Sermon Evaluations
  2. Nov 26 – Ruth 3:11-18 translation/Chisholm 142-147 summary
  3. Nov 29/Dec 6 – OT text paper #3 (1500-2000 words)
  4. Nov 30 – African Apostles discussion paper (750-1000 words)
  5. Dec 3 – Ruth 4:1-9 translation/Chisholm 169-76 summary
  6. Dec 7 – Receiving Care summary (5 pages)
  7. Dec 8 – Theology of Preaching (6-8) pages
  8. !! Dec 10 – Scandal of the Evangelical Mind book review (2000-2500 words)
  9. !! Dec 10 – Hebrew final exam/Hebrew research paper due
  10. Dec 13 – OT Text paper #4 (1500-2000 words)
  11. Dec 14- Final verbatim reports and logs
  12. Dec 15 – Hebrews sermon
  13. Dec 17 – Next Christianity discussion paper (750-1000 words)

He bolded the major papers, and you’ll notice the exclamation marks on December 10 which has two big papers and a final exam (in Hebrew, no less).

Luckily, I only have three short papers after I hand in tomorrow’s paper and feel like I’m on a bit of a vacation for the rest of the semester, so he can be at the library from 8am to 10pm for the next 25 days if he likes if he likes.

We’ll survive, really. I’m just glad it’s his stress and not mine.

    School was always so stressful… I can NOT imagine how it would be with three kids. Seriously. I don’t know how you two are doing it. I get nauseated just thinking about it.

    (Really. My pulse is actually racing. I wish we lived closer so I could be the place you drop your kids when you just need your house to be quiet for a couple hours.)

    This is pure abuse, that’s insane I cann’t believe how the school can expect you to learn something with so many assignments at once, no time for personal reflection. I have no words for it, good to give you a heart attack, do the professors compare notes about assignments they give?
    Maybe you can have your bed in the Library stay there 24 hrs and snooze in between your study a bit.
    Thinking about you marc.
    Maybe I should write to the school and have a report in the paper what a super hero’s you are.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
