The following year (1991-1992)

I took systematic theology. Since I never took philosophy in high school, it was difficult for me. The text book was written in German and translated by someone who kept too close to the text. Whereas paragraph long sentences might be acceptable in German, they are not in English. However, this... Sign in to see full entry.

I have forgotten the names

of the books. I could look them up, but won't now. It occurs to me that I could find my class notes and read them while I'm writing this. It would make this exercise more useful. What I remember most about this class, other than about C.S. Lewis was that my professor had some serious character... Sign in to see full entry.

My first class was American Church HIstory

I had only one class, no job and my daughters and son were in school. So I had a lot of time. I read all of the material, typed my notes on the computer. I wrote a paper on the Society of Friends, and went to two libraries to get material. One library was in Newburg Oregon. I drove there and back in... Sign in to see full entry.

From Grad School to Seminary

I decided that while I was off work, I would go to Graduate School in Counseling. I heard about one school from a fellow Pierce College Student. So I applied.

One week in October after watching movies, and thinking about my reactions in group, I decided that I must be an alcoholic. The timing was wierd.

An almost rock star

Clark was a singer and guitarist for a popular band during the sixties. His band went West instead of East. If they had gone East, they might have made big. They didn't quite make it in L.A. He wrote one popular song, which I forget the name of. He made videos and was friends with a lot of Hollywood... Sign in to see full entry.

Going back to college

Returning back to college wasn't hard. I took 100 and 200 level classes. Since I already had a bachelor's degree it wasn't hard. In addition, for the last ten years I had almost always been writing. I kept a journal and wrote on the computer. More recently, I took several creative writing classes... Sign in to see full entry.

Alcoholic

In September of 1999, I began my studies at Pierce College to become a Drug and Alcohol counselor. My daughters were in second grade and my attempt to become a full time rider failed. I thought that since it had been four years since I had worked as a crisis worker, that I needed to have additional... Sign in to see full entry.
