Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
I’m so glad that I decided to go back to school part-time, scheduling only one course a day for myself. Although it does feel sort of odd leaving school an hour and a half after I get there, it allows me to spend more time with both of my kids while easing myself back into the routine of approaching everything full-throttle. In hindsight, this will help me settle into the idea that I don’t have to throw as much of myself into everything as I possibly can — I’ve always been painfully self-reliant, opting into putting as much on my plate as is humanly possible at any one time. If anything, my relationship with Matt has taught me that it’s okay to rely on others. But I’ve written about this before.
At any rate, today brought about my first History of Religions I class meeting! This class is supposed to focus on the Old Testament of the Bible, approaching everything contained within it from a more historical standpoint rather than religious perspective. Although I’ll be the first to admit that I have a rather limited working knowledge of all things religious, I chose to take the class that focused on the Old Testament rather than the New Testament because I was slightly more familiar with it. I know how God created the world, as am I familiar with Adam and Eve’s story getting banished from the Garden of Eden.
See? I’m open minded. I haven’t thrown my student bible across the room yet!
More about my first day can be found over in my parenting blog once I’ve gone over there to write about it, which with any luck will be in a little while. So far as homework goes, I lucked out in that the majority of my religions class will be reading — that, and Matt can explain anything to me that confuses me.
A Song From Your Favorite Album
Right now, Late Night Alumni would have to be my favorite band… so it should come as no surprise to any of you that I love all of their albums right now. I can’t believe that I didn’t like techno and trance while I was in high school.
The article written by Victor Flowers
The best television show that I know of is True Blood. The fact that this is a drama is a great reason to watch it on my cheap satellite tv. I remember when this television show was just a collection of novels titled The Southern Vampire Mysteries, written by Charlaine Harris. The fact that this was made into a great television show just shows how awesome the books were. This is a show that can only be found on HBO. It has been around since the beginning of September of 2008.
The main character played by Anna Paquin, is by far the best addition to the show. No wonder she is the main character! A telepathic waitress is something that many shows do not even begin to touch on, but this shows touches on it all the way. Another wonderful character in the television that I absolutely love is Bill Compton, played by Stephen Moyer. The risk that this lady takes to save Bill shows not only that she has a deep love for helping people, but that she doesn’t care who or what he is. He was going to be killed by a couple who wished to sell his blood, which is a narcotic.
This show takes strong moral value and blends the modern and mythical into a spellbinding tale of wonder and awe. This is a show for anybody who loves vampires and the interactions with humans.
A Song That You Hear Often On The Radio
The 30 Day Music Challenge prompts can be found here if you’re interested.
Truth be told, I don’t actually listen to the radio that much in the car. From time to time, I listen to various radio stations on the Internet whenever the urges strike me… but that hasn’t been often because I haven’t exactly remembered to do so. In light of that, I’ll take this opportunity to post a song that I actually wish would be played on the radio. I don’t know why, but I liked Mandy Moore’s older music a lot more than what she’s putting out now. The same can also be said for singers like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, though.
