  • Another Summer Term Comes to a Close

    I find it interesting how there really is a relative aspect to time. I left Winnipeg this year on June 11th to come to Halifax for my 4th summer. It seemed like such a long time to be away. I know, this year was only to be 5 weeks, as opposed to the usual 6 […]

  • Course Number 2

    Okay so I know that I have not been in contact for a while, but I must admit I never, in my wildest dreams, expected that much or kind of work out of a Hebrew course. On the good side the course is completed and it was fascinating. The instructor has such passion for the […]

  • Hebrew, Hebrew, and Hebrew

    I will begin by sending my apologies for not posting sooner, but to be honest it has been one of those weeks. We began Monday morning with a bit of anticipation with learning Hebrew. Okay, well it might not have actually been anticipation, it might have been more like terror. So we went to class, […]

  • Year Number 4 Begins

    I arrived in Halifax yesterday around 5, just a bit late, as the flight out of Toronto was delayed. I was met at the airport by a friend, who is also in the program, who had timed it so that he, who was driving from Ontario, could swing by the airport so that I could […]

  • Almost Done

    I know that I have been remiss in posting and for that I apologize. It has been a very hectic few weeks here in Halifax. The music course that I was involved with over the last couple of weeks was more intense than I expected and so took up a lot of my time and […]

  • Almost 1/3 Of The Way Through

    I must first begin by saying that I have been a bit remiss this week. I have every intention of writing this post on Sunday evening as we prepared to begin our second week of study, but it seemed that life really got in the way. There were assignments to complete, reading to do, and […]
