The Cube Rev's Going To School?


It's a possibility. I just applied to Rutgers University in the hopes of finishing my degree finally and transitioning from being a cubicle reverend to an actual reverend. Four times a charm and I will actually finish my degree this time. Though I admit the idea of going back to school scares me a little bit. It was a bit of a high to be able to flaunt my bohemian cred. whenever I was out, how I'm the starving poet living in the middle of a New Jersey suburb that no one has ever heard of, living a hermetic existence in prayer and Bible Study. So instead of flaunting how I am keeping it real, it is time to move on to doing God's will and moving on to the next chapter of my life where ever that may be.

Hey Dave, I wish you all the best and hope that whatever happens will be the RIGHT thing. :) I'm a little scared about going back to school as well (it's been almost 7 yrs now for me)

I'll be keeping you in my prayers :)

Frankie,
My original plan was to do one of those on line jobbers, but I'm glad I'm going to a regular school after all. I'm debating on studying either Religion or English, haven't decided for certain yet.

Carmel,
Thanks, we'll have to make sure you and I and the husb. get together when you come to the USA.

Jess,
I know the fear you are talking about. I'm wondering what I'm getting myself into.

Gerald,
Aye, I know! Man, what am I thinking. I won't finish with school til I'm in my 40's!

school is not that bad! I think that once you get back into the studious mindset, you will find it a welcoming place! Good luck with that! (beware of statistics! )

Fortunately I got statistics out of the way a long time ago. That was school attempt #1.

Logan,
Thanks man, I'm excited. It's been a long time coming.

Astrid, thanks for the pencil. as soon as I figure out how to use it I'll keep it with me always.

Cate,
It's been a long strange trip, and I'm only 32! Makes me wonder what I'm going to be like in another 10 years.
