The Eve of Sophomore Year

August 31, 2008

My stuff is unpacked (mostly) and my backpack is ready (mostly). Now I just gotta fix these bare white walls, and sharpen those shiny 2B pencils, and I’ll be ready for a brand new year on the hill.

I know this is about Israel, but I like to think that it applies to me too:

Isaiah 41:9-10

I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, “You are my servant.” I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

I guess when one joins the ranks of bloggers, an introduction of sorts is expected. Here goes.

Karen Blixen, who wrote Babette’s Feast and Out of Africa under the pseudonym, Isak Dinesen, said: “To be a person is to have a story to tell.”

I like that.

As I start my sophomore year here at Denison, this is my place for stories.
