Fun with theology

Julio is testing *again*. I can't say I'm surprised, it's frustrating, but I think I have the will power to deal with it. It could be him protesting, since I'm still feeling okay, he thinks he should walksslow to give me a taste of my own medicine for making him do the same. The pain has been strong, but much much more manageable. It's not so opressive, closer to a 5 than a six I'd say. This is good. I can deal with this.

The professor who's teaching right now until our professor is well enough to come back seems nice, and she's got some interesting ways of approaching the material.
Today we were talking about women's sense of self. We talked about the ways in which women develop a sense of who we are. Basically, relationships are important and it's equally important to be okay with that, let ourselves feel and find an outlet for emotions. Interesting stuff. Then we watched Crash, well, part of it... It was extremely intense, which is why I haven't tried to go to bed yet. There is a lot to digest in that, and I don't quite know how to handle such intense anger and hatred even when it is not personally directed at me.

Next week we're talking about intimacy and how that effects spirituality. It will be interesting to see what she has to say. I'm trying to get the article she asked us to read off the internet, but because of the way the database handles Pdfs, I can't get it to save. I tried printing it to
Kurzweil
but it doesn't recognize well. So I appear to be out of luck. If anyone has access to the article "Are You There God, It's me Monica" from the Atlantic in accessible format, I'd be grateful for some help... I'd try scanning the print, but if the Pdf didn't recognize, I have even less confidence that a photocopy of the article will recognize. What fun it is to deal with this stuff.

That's pretty much it from here.

Hugs!

just out of curiousity, have you ever thought of having julio evaluated to see if he could help you with some mobility tasks? i've got a couple of friends who were sort of in the opposite position. they ended up training mobility assistance dogs to do some guide work. just an odd, off-topic early morning thought.

and if you can't find the article in an accessible format, if it would help, i'd be more than glad to type up a photocopy or pdf document so it might be more compatible. that class sounds absolutely fascinating. over seven years of college and a lot of intriguing classes, but oh how i'd love to take something like that!

I've sort of trained him to do a few things to help me with foot related issues. He does what I call "bracing" even though it's really not exactly what you'd expect. His job it to sit or stand still if I need help balancing to get out of a chair (which happens occasionally). He's usually pretty good at matching my pace, and surprisingly, he seems to be aware of balance issues, sometimes. If things get worse, I will probably talk to the guide dog school and see what they think.

I will let you know on the harticle. It's about 15 pages, so if I can get the pdf to download properly, I'll go that route since it's so long. The weird thing, is that it's text, it just won't save. I will definitely let you know if I absolutely can't get it. I definitely apreciate the offer!
