    Lazy day

    Tuesday, December 22, 2009, 10:44 AM [General]

    We haven't been having our regular basic Judaism class at the temple because of board meetings, so I'm just reading as muchas I can of the book the Rabbi told me to get and studying some work by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.

    I guess this will be my last Christmas.  We wrapped presents yesterday and thankfully we are done with our shopping.  Putting up the tree today.

    Thankful thaat I don't have to go back to work until Jan. 4!

    Beginning my conversion

    Saturday, December 5, 2009, 2:19 PM [General]

    This week I met with our local Reform Jewish Rabbi about conversion and it was a wonderful conversation!  I also started taking basic Judaism classes once a week at the temple.  I'm on my way to conversion!

    Nothing to Do

    Friday, November 13, 2009, 8:51 PM [General]

    It feels so good to have nothing to do.  I just bought a book on yoga I'm going to look over, then do some meditation and read.  I love not being in school!

    Big Decision

    Thursday, November 12, 2009, 2:33 PM [General]

    I made a big decision yesterday.  I dropped my class that was one of my prerequisites for the PhD program I was applying to.  I immersed myself so deeply in the school work that I was neglegcting my job, so I'm going to direct that energy into work.  We do good things that help people, so it's worth it.  It's also more important to me to convert to Reform Judaism than to get a PhD, so I'm going to direct my energy into that as well.  I need to take care of myself and I wasn't when I was balancing work and school.  It's disappointing because I was making an A and had just finished what I thought was a really good 35 page paper.
