First of all, thanks to everyone for the prayers about my oral exam. I did get the tough examiner, and I don’t think I did really well… but oh well.
As some of you may already know, I am a sophomore and have been looking at colleges for about a year now. And for over six months, I’ve had my heart set on attending Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia.
Now, it’s rather expensive, but quite a bit cheaper than my #2 option, University of Dallas. I think that I can get some scholarships that will help, though. At any rate, on Monday (I think) I applied for information about the college. On Saturday I received an information packet in the mail. The letter inside was marked Tuesday. Fast, anyone?
I’m planning to get my degree in English Language and Literature. In fact, one of the things that attracts me to Christendom is the opportunity they offer to learn Old English. It’s been a dream of mine for several years to learn Old English, and it’s a wonderful thought that I may not only attend an orthodox Catholic college and receive a great liberal arts education, but learn O. E. as well! I also plan to study ancient Greek while I’m there (a foreign language is required, and Old English isn’t one of the options).
