CBI Dropout

It's been 16 years since I sat in a classroom...with teachers who give tests.

A few weeks ago Bruce signed us up to take Old Testament Survey on Tuesday Nights at Central Bible Institute. We are now on week two and the familiar tune..."Beauty School Dropout" has been changed in my head to "CBI Dropout".

Oh. My. Goodness. It's a great course. It's interesting. It's amazing...largely because we spent a whole hour talking about Darwinism and evolution and Hitler, Marx and Freud. Amazing stuff I'm telling ya. But it is an hour of complete, hardcore concentration....and frankly I don't know if I can do it! I know you are probably thinking "sure you can, Bruce is the one with ADD". Thank you, but unfortunatly by 7pm most of my brain cells are spent.

However, I am not giving up yet. I figure if I audit the class, I can sit there a whole lot less stressed out because I don't have to pass a test. Poor Bruce...he won't be able to cheat off of me :)

Wow, sounds like you've got choices, Gina. OT Survey sounds like a great course. In college that course made me fall in love with the OT in a way I'd never seen it before. Maybe...now just isn't the time. How's Bruce doing on it?

I liked this course in college too. I was taking it as sort of a refresher. I don't think I will drop out...probably just going to audit it so that I can be a little less stressed!

Bruce is loving it. It's a refresher for him too and he retains information so much better than me...so he's not nearly as stressed!

Ronny (my dad-in-law) is an excellent teacher. I've enjoyed reading your blog. Very exciting and interesting :) I remember praying for Savannah years ago.... we had just had our first miscarriage 2 mo. before and I didn't want to hear about anymore heart breaks. So glad to see a post on her :)

Krista- He is AMAZING!!! I don't think I have ever heard someone with such an overall knowledge of science and Bible.
