2013 so far
At the beginning of the month Ly started her MDiv program. The first part of the classes she is lucky enough to get to take online, so Alan was a bit nervous that her old procrastination habits would resurface and he'd be in for a lot of long nights. Luckily, Ly has learned from her old ways and has thus far managed to stay on top of things...she even submitted 2 assignments a whopping 10 hours before they were due! Maybe after all of these years, some of Alan's more admirable qualities are starting to rub off on her.
Ly was a bit worried starting this program that she might "forget" how to be a student. It has been over five years since she graduated college, after all. Luckily being a student is much like riding a bike (or so she's been told) and she jumped right in. So far she has managed to study at home, at the bookstore, a coffee shop and of course the local greek restaurant where the bartenders give her free diet coke with lime. There is something nice about reading books about the Old Testament while munching on humus and fresh made pita. Anyway, so far Ly has really enjoyed her program and especially likes sharing her new found knowledge with Alan at the end of the day. Her tales of Moses and the authorship of the Old Testament are certain to provide for better dinner conversation than Alan's tale of differential diagnoses.
So if the blog is quiet for a little bit, just imagine Ly reading those books pictured above and Alan administering patient exams or studying for his boards. You will most likely be spot on.
