Lessons from my past?

So I've gotten through all my notes from high school, and I'm up to seminary. In fact, I have been up to them for the past two weeks or so...but I'm afraid to review them. I'm not where I was, and I don't like it, but apparantly it's not affecting me enough to change myself...

It's a yucky day.

(Although...I got a job today in the Rare Books Library!! ;) There's always something good...and yes, I know y'all are soooooo jealous...)

I once (or more) tried looking through my notes from Yeshiva. I am sorry to say that half the stuff I couldent even follow, - a different wavelength? Either way, if you know you need to change, you are half way there already.

Mazel Tov on the job.
(and yes, I am jealous.)

I can really relate to that. I also get really discouraged from doing certain things that I know I am 'rusty' at-namely sitting down and playing the piano when I know how much better I used to be at it. But I'm impressed that you are making the effort and I hope you get through the notes.

P.S. the job actually DOES sound pretty cool!

It's inerestin..going through the notes WAS a good thing, 'cause it got me thinking, which is (almost always good), and got me DOING.

As for my job, I love it!! I'm actually working in TWO rare book libraries; one volunteer and one paid, and I LOVE it! I actually was asked to translate something that'll be in a book, which means my name will be there too...;) The only caveat? It's in Yiddish. Which I...sorta....understand...
