I have finished all my grading and responsibilities for the Fall 2014 semester, my first term of full-time teaching. It’s a great feeling.
Next on the list: class prep for the Spring (apocalyptic literature, OT narrative books, Greek), music for Christmas service, and research for our trip to Poland and southeastern Lithuania this weekend. We are planning to visit the villages where Corrie’s great-great-grandparents lived–pics and full report next week.
For North Americans who have never lived through a currency change: I will let you know how it goes next week. Perhaps my studies in apocalypse will prove more relevant than I thought. I kid, but there are some who are very concerned about Lithuania’s entrance into the Eurozone. Inflation is always a concern, and I plan to write more very soon about the struggles faced by our Russian and Ukrainian students, who have seen the value of their tuition money plummet.
