A few thoughts about Greek:
My dad apparently talked to the religion department chair about me helping out with the Biblical Greek program. Now, I am quite happy to do this, but...
1. I'd already touched base with Dr. L and didn't want to seem to be pushing things.
2. I never know what my father will say. I love that he wants to help me. But, his versions of events and actual reality sometimes only have a nodding acquaintance with each other. And he will talk until you wish you brain would ooze out of your nose just so that you can excuse yourself. (Ask ybunny if you don't believe me. He got 45 minutes on Halliburton politiics without even asking for it. Poor guy.)

So, I went over today after playing phone tag with Dr. C, the chairman. Basically he left it up to Dr. L...who likes me, but who also is unfailingly fair and won't give the job just because he likes me. And, there really /isn't/ a job as such. There is just the chance of possibly helping out in a random, you're-kindof-a-TA sort of thing.

So, that's in limbo. And...blech.

A few thoughts about distance:
Those people who say that long distance relationships won't work can bite my natural white ass. You know who you are...you know how bitchy you are. I'm not saying I want to do this forever...I'm working on remedying it. But...it's do-able for now. The only times that I become unbearable to others is just before and just after we're together. The only times I'm unbearable to myself is when there is no chance of /any/ communication. Right now there is spotty communication. So, I'm only periodically unbearable to myself. ;)

So, that's as it is. And...blech.

I've got terms for my loan repayment. It will be quite workable. I'm pleased that my Gram is helping me out.

Now, Mom...you know what? I can get you a livejournal if you want...then you can read all the entries and not just the public ones. ;) The username drjoan isn't taken yet. I love ya...and I don't mind you reading along.

Well, I guess I should sleep since I've now been up waaaaayyyyy past my bedtime.

Long distance relationships can work if all parties involved want it to, just like any other relationship. Obviously long distance bring about other problems, but just like any other problem in a relationship, if people want to work through it and remain together then they will. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise :)

Those people who say that long distance relationships won't work, as if sweeping generalisations about relationships based on what's true of them and not considering that it might not be true for others... well, yeah, can bite my ass, too.

I hope you feel less crappy.

Yay for mom getting a Lj. She must, she must... just as long as my mother doesn't. ;)

My brother went to college in Minnesota and his high school girlfriend went to college here in Kansas and they've been married (after college graduation for him) for twelve years, so it can work. :)

As one who's been in two *very* long distance relationships (LDR), having met both online, it is workable. As already stated, sweeping generalizations based on personal experience don't help matters and the relationships can work if both parties are willing and able to make it so.

LDR breed their own special problems, but the whole communication thing, is important no matter how close you are physically. They can work, I know many people who've met their current spouses/partners online and have been happily together for several years.

Yeah, I'm an anomaly, I'm divorced from my hubby who I met online, but we're still friends and not bitter or whatever, I guess that says something, I don't know. As for the current love, it's a blessing it's long-distance - even though I wasn't looking for any romance or whatever and especially not one that's long distance! - it gives us both the opportunity to take things slowly and as common-sense as one possibly can take love! The cool thing is we both need the distance right now and are content with it.

Kudos to you and yours for the effort :)
