one thing

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Well, I’ve done it. After five years, I finally graduated from seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. I feel greatly relieved to have reached this milestone. If you’ve been following me lately, you know I have kind of dropped off the face of the planet for the past month… there are lots of reasons […]

the other thing

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Right, so I guess I got a little carried away with the first thing that made me think from last Saturday’s workshop. The other thing came from a spur-of-the-moment comment made by another workshop attendee in the middle of the day. I don’t remember much of the context, except that the speaker made a remark […]

he’s back!

Friday, July 27th, 2007

That’s right, ladies and gents, Kenny Lofton is a Cleveland Indian again. They just acquired him in a trade with the Rangers, and in his first game (which is tonight) he’s already 2-4 with an RBI. Lofton used to play with the Tribe back in the glory years of the 90s… he was on the […]

home again

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

Whew … my two marathon weeks at Taylor are over! Being home again is extremely settling and satisfying. At the very least, I’m able to sleep in my own bed and not on a friend’s couch (which, if you know anything about my height, was necessarily too short for me to sleep on comfortably). Of […]


Thursday, January 11th, 2007

I’m currently in the middle of the world’s longest day of teaching. I woke up at 6:45am, drove to Marsh to buy five(!) dozen glazed donuts for my Taylor classes (mostly a bribe to get the *second* class to show up half an hour early (at 10:30am!) to watch Donald in Mathmagic Land), drove back […]

Taylor again

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

So, happy new year, and all that jazz. Another year has dawned, and that can only mean one thing: J-term. The professor for whom I substituted last year has received some sort of research grant for this month, and the TU math department needed somebody to cover his J-term class. Since I have taught that […]

ministerial association II

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

Today was the day of the second meeting of a bunch of local ministers, including Pastor Tom and me. The group was the same size as last time – just six people showed up, even though apparently more had e-mailed the host church’s pastor saying they would come. We talked about things that are going […]

back to Taylor

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

So it looks like I’ll be teaching at Taylor again, but only for a few days this time. Dr. DeLong has been given a grant to do some research this coming January, and the other day Dr. Benbow e-mailed to see if I’d be interested in covering his MAT120 (Investigations in Mathematics) course this J-term. […]

holy cow.

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Read this. Read this, too. There’s really nothing to say about this situation… literally. I can’t imagine what it must be like for anyone directly involved in this mix-up. Just a minute ago, I was talking with Shawn on the phone, and I realized that I don’t know whose parents I would rather be right […]

value of math

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

So, apparently there’s been a bit of confusion about what I meant when I said that I enjoyed studying in seminary much more than teaching ” ‘normal’ ” math classes. (If you recall, we’ve already had this conversation this year.) Nobody needs to clue me (or any other math teacher, hopefully) in to the value […]
