I have my first test in both classes tomorrow. It’s a little mind blowing how quickly summer classes are going by; after tomorrow, they will be 20% over! Which means the trend of extreme studying has continued. Today: class + library time = 11 hours.
I don’t feel particularly prepared, either. But, I reached that point where the more I studied, the less prepared I felt, which is generally a good indication that it’s time to stop. Fingers crossed.
My scheduled Bible reading today is only one chapter; I suspect that means it’s a long one.
Chapter 7- The leaders of Israel bring an offering of 6 carts and 12 oxen to the tabernacle, which get given to the Levites. One leader brought additional gifts/offerings each day during the dedication of the tabernacle.
Well, I just figured out why this chapter is so long. Each of the 12 leaders brings the exact same items as their offering, but they got listed in excruciating detail every time. I know I’ve said it before, but I think it bears repeating: The bible has a major redundancy problem. (See what I did there?) Verses 12-83 could’ve been about 6 verses long instead of 72 if only it had said “One leader each day brought an offering of blah, blah, blah, 2 blahs, 5 blahs, and blah every day during the 12 days of dedication.”
I think I’ll try to go to sleep early tonight; these 6:30 awakenings have not gotten easier yet.
