Lacking profundity

You know, when I was away from home, and in class and able to focus away from my ADD life, I had all sorts of profound insights, and my IQ went up about 50 points. Now, I feel like I can barely keep up with my class reading, let alone say anything profound, or even think it. My blog feels like a black hole of meh.

I read some of the things the people in my NT class are posting, and I think, "Wow, I'm way out of my league here. I can't even THINK of such questions, let alone begin to answer them." I have no idea how I'll write an exegetical paper later this year.

I did write an assigned sermon that I'm quite pleased with, but I have another one to write, and am waiting for inspiration.

Gah. I don't know why my brain chose now to go on vacation but it can come home any time now.

I hear you, Kelly! I'm back a week and a half now and still haven't been able to unpack my books and notes or even my suitcase. January was so intense, I feel like my brain turned to mush. I can't focus on all the work yet to do for those three intensive classes while trying to keep up with CSS and NT.

I just have to trust that it'll all settle in and gel and the "brain trauma" will heal itself. :)

Take care of yourself, Kelly.

I'm with you too. I'm much more dense now that I'm back home - and much more easily distracted too!
