I checked my mailbox today, and all the mail was for someone named Julio. I asked the people in the mailroom about it, and they said that everyone got a new mailbox this year.
Well, that's just fine and dandy, but which mailbox is my new one, and what's the combination to open it?
They wrote down my new mailbox number and combination on a form. Apparently, I was supposed to pick up my form on Monday. I didn't do that, so they put the form...in my mailbox.
So basically, I have to open my mailbox to get my mailbox combination. Perfect.
The person in the mailroom was able to open my mailbox for me, but it was still kind of ridiculous.
In other school news, I've finished my first week of classes. The elective I'm taking is Spanish 2, which is what you'd expect it to be. Espanol esta bien, mas or menos. Mi vocabulario es mas grande que los otros estudiantes porque de mi trabajo en lenguas antiquas. Mi problema es no pienso en espanol. Cuando quiero decir algo, yo pienso sobre que quiero decir en ingles y lo tranduco en espanol. Necesito pensar en espanol.
Another class I'm taking is epistemology, which is totally epistemological. Epistemology is the study of knowledge. How do people know things? What can people know? How long will it be before I can spell "epistemology" correctly? These are the sorts of questions that the class will hopefully answer.
It'll be another week or so before school really gets started, because there are three or so programs that don't start until two weeks in, just to make things simpler for the new people. My assignments will be sacristy duty, playing piano (provided I pass the audition), and tour guide. Yep, tour guide. I've got four groups ready for tours of the seminary already. It'll be an interesting ministry, to be sure.
