Seriously, I am having the worst time motivating myself to do my homework... as in currently I have a paper to write, and instead I am blogging. Awesome.
I recognize that a large part of my aversion to school is that I have 1 week left of this class and 2 classes left until I have completed my double masters! (woohoo!!) -- Which, I keep explaining to people sounds way more impressive than it actually is.
I also realize that part of my struggle with motivation is that I have been putting in a crazy number of hours at work the last few weeks, so homework just feels like added stress and like it is taking time that I would rather be putting into work... Which I guess is a good thing that despite the number of hours, I still would rather put my time into work.
On a slightly different note.. I when I took this job I was told that my work would cover me getting a Masters of Divinity.. I sorta freaked out when I was presented with this.. I mean SERIOUSLY... Who needs THREE masters degrees?!... No. One. I informed them I would not really think about it until I had completed these two degrees in May. However, I have been letting the idea ruminate in my head, and turning over all of the possible outcomes of getting an M. Div. or not.
I have narrowed it down to two basic ideas:
- If I am going to pursue a life of ministry (which I obviously love) then an M. Div. makes complete and perfect sense.
- However, if I am not planning on or even thinking I am going to pursue a career in ministry, it would make little to no sense to pursue another masters degree, let alone one in divinity.
Basically, I have not come to any final conclusion. I have no doubt that God will make it pretty clear one way or another how it will all work out and what He wants me to do.. Thankfully I am not feeling stressed about it, just mulling the possibilities over in my head...
I have begun to plan out how my dad could get the same degree with me!.. I think that might be the only way I survive and make it through haha... But no, seriously.
