Oh man, what wouldn’t I give up to have the opportunity to attend the 2012 RNC Convention.
I remember the 2008 Convention like it was yesterday. One of the most memorable moments of the entire convention was Mike Huckabee’s speech. The man is a fantastic speaker, and his speech was just phenomenal—he captivated every part of my being. A man definitely worthy of presidency.
But most likely I’ll be watching the convention this year via live streaming, wishing I was there.
This prose essay has got to be one of, if not the hardest essays I was ever assigned. The class—Introduction to Prose Genres overall in general is a very difficult class. I don’t know what I was thinking when enrolling. I ignored all the negative reviews on rate my prof, instead taking my brother’s advice who successfully completed this course. On top of that, my TA doesn’t give mercy when marking my essays.
I have a paper due tomorrow on Dreams From My Father. I don’t know how or even know where to begin writing this essay.
I just erased a lengthy rant that took over 30 minutes to write. I was confident and felt good about it. But I concluded that it’s best I rather not post it in the fear of offending some people and perhaps lose my precious followers. lol.
I’m currently working on the outline to the major essay assignment for Religious Studies. Topic? Christianity vs. Mormonism: Why Mormonism doesn’t cohere with Orthodox Christianity.
I’m actually really excited to write this paper. On the first day of class with the prof going over the syllabus, I knew from the moment he introduced this assignment, this was what I wanted to write about. I can’t help but cringe every time I witness a Christianity flowchart listing all the different sects and denominations with the inclusion of Mormonism. I guess this essay will be my attempt to defend the faith—also known as apologetics. I’ve studied Mormonism for almost 4 years now. Don’t get me wrong, I find it absolutely fascinating but also to be in grave error with contradictory doctrines and questionable early church history. Overall built on a very shaky foundation.
A few of weeks ago, my TA wanted our class to bring in a thesis statement for the major essay so we could go over/revise them in tutorial. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a tad bit afraid of offending the TA, but constantly reassured myself that I most likely won’t because he was a gung ho flaming athiest. He read it and laughed.
