I’m getting pretty bad at keeping up with these weekly re-caps, aren’t I? Either I’m a day early or a day late or I just don’t know what to say.
Honestly it’s been a pretty quiet week in real life as well as on this blog. That’s not to say I haven’t been doing anything, just that even while living in a foreign country you get into a routine. Routines aren’t bad. In fact, I’m looking forward to getting into more of a routine myself. It helps me get things done.
Life will have more routine for me starting next month when I’m a full-time Japanese student and when I take on more ministry stuff through the church. In the meantime, I’m trying to enjoy the flexibility and freedom I’ve got now. I’m also trying to use my free time more constructively and creatively. It’s good to exercise the other half of my brain at least once a week; it’s refreshing. It’s also, I believe, good preparation for potential future ministry (see previous post).
I’ve got some new ideas I’m toying with, now that SkitZo MaN is going into retirement. I haven’t given myself any deadlines or anything, though — that would make it too much like work, and I don’t need more stressors. I just need something relaxing to do when I’m not nose deep in Japanese textbooks.
The next couple of weeks I’ll be busy with preparations for my final exam, the annual conference and the full-time course. That may or may not mean fewer web updates. In the meanwhile, if you’re a pray-er, please keep me in your prayers. And have a great weekend, wherever you are.
