I went into this specific blog post extremely nervous about letting everyone down.
I mean, come on, let’s face it…
All my posts are starting to blend together. I’m not getting lost anymore (for the most part), I haven’t really been on any grand adventures lately, I’m in class five hours a day and it’s not even a class I WANT to be in… It’s getting dull for me, so I know it’s got to be getting dull for you.
I guess this is the inevitable step back when I realize that it isn’t realistic to expect to write about something interesting every night. (If you listen closely, you can hear a dozen or so of my friends actually asleep at their keyboards.)
So here’s the dreaded (or lauded) announcement (depending on how you look at it). For those of you who knew to expect a blog every night…expect a blog maybe every other night? For those of you who check it occasionally and are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of babblage that you’ve missed out on since you last visit…Hakuna Matatah. And for those of you *cough*Blanca*cough* who simply skim it….shame on you! I’m calling you out! My life is interesting sometimes, damnit! xD
Today I talked with my advisor. I finally gave up all hope of getting into the Archaeology of Jerusalem class that I desperately wanted to take. Instead I am taking:
Israeli Literature: Myth, National Ethos, and the Individual:
Israeli reality as reflected and shaped by post-War of Independence Hebrew writers; “sabras” and immigrants on local Israeli and universal existential issues, such as the Arab-Israeli conflict; Holocaust and return; Diaspora and Zionism; tradition and crisis; individual and society; Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews; male-female dialogue. An examination of the changing role of myth, Zionist ethos, and the individual in contemporary Israeli literature.
Issues in Israeli Society:
This course examines historical, social, and political aspects of contemporary Israeli society. After analyzing the ideologies and groups that played a major role in the formation of Israeli society, class discussion will focus on social and political issues which are at the center of current debate in the country.
With these two classes on my schedule…my semesterly schedule will look like this.
Monday 12:30 – 2:15 & 6:30 – 8:15
Wednesday 12:30 – 2:15 & 6:30 – 8:15
Then, if I make the play, rehearsals will happen like this:
Sunday 7:00 – 10:30
Wednesday 7:00 – 10:30 (Possible conflict…but I’ve already sent out an email to the director asking if it’s a problem…)
Thursday 5:00 – 8:00
Some Fridays 9:30am – 12:00
Still have plans to meet up with Meitar on Thursday. I’m kinda getting excited. Took money out and everything. Let’s DO this. Just have to remember to ask for a haloch-chazor (round trip ticket) when I get on the second bus. I’d hate to be stranded in Tel Aviv over Shabbat.
OHHH! IMPORTANT! *Red Flags this entire area*
I finally got my ADDRESS!!! =D
If you would like to send me mail while I’m in Jerusalem (it’ll take 1-3 weeks to deliver and it’s recommended that you don’t send “packages”), the address is:
Once again, we reach the dregs of the pile…the very end of the line. Two people have suggested things that I write about in future blog posts. (So that I remember…Jeff Seidel and a walking tour of campus in pictures.)
If you have any suggestions of things you want to see or hear about, feel free to find me in some way/shape/form and let me know. I’d be delighted to accommodate you if it’s within my power to do so. 🙂
