I'm having the kind of day where my thoughts are running a thousand directions at once.

I'm pondering some teaching on Islam that I've received over the last several Sunday evenings, and the ways that that teaching is completely contradictory to other things that I've heard and read.

I'm thinking about an appointment I had on the weekend, and balancing relationships and health and boundaries and all that good stuff.

I'm sitting in a classroom, waiting for the last of a series of Monday morning tutorials to begin.  A series of tutorials that I will absolutely NOT miss an hour from now when they've concluded.  The sort of tutorials where the Teaching Assistant one spent 20 minutes working to impart the point that "pop culture tries to influence us."  Not exactly a stunning revelation.

It's the last week of classes.  I have one more term paper to write.  And then five final exams.  Throw in a part-time job, various and sundry health appointments, a few yoga classes, a teaching commitment at house church, my brother's graduation from Bible school, a friend's wedding, Easter, and I can't even remember what else, and it definitely promises to be a busy next three weeks.

That, of course, means that I have no idea what blogging will look like during that time, other than, of course, the Daily 5. 

Wish me luck!  A lot rides on these exams...
