Wow, two blogposts in a month. Who'da thunk it?

4/Apr - Some words have lost their meaning. Other words have just plain been invented, sans meaning. Unaustralian, for instance. I'm sorry, precisely what is Australian behaviour?
5/Apr - Became a godfather for a young man who converted to Orthodoxy last year. Many years to our latest neophytes!
6/Apr - Feeling very frustrated... (see below)
7/Apr - I've done 600w for a 4000w essay. On paper, I've got plenty of time. But, once you factor in Holy Week and time that I'm spending away from home and eating after the Resurrection service, the time before the start of May (i.e. due date) becomes really...really short. Plus there's another essay a week after that (~2000w)...and another one due in prac (~1600w) I'm very much feeling swamped at the moment.

I'm feeling very sick of things at the moment. There's a lot of things that I can do, quite a number of things that I'd like to do...but only a few things that I have a personal stake in. And I'm not doing them. Not really.

So, I'm setting myself a not-unreasonable deadline. If something doesn't happen in the next nine months (i.e. by the end of the year) that will allow me to run with one of those personal-stake things, then I'll take that as a message that I'm not in the right place. And fix that.

I have no idea about "unAustralian"; though I wish the word would go away.

Prayers for the feelings [I can identify with them; feeling much the same], and prayers for a blessed Holy Week and Pascha.
