Inspiration from a Communications class
As I write this, the clock says 4:30 AM. For reasons unknown to me, I can’t sleep. Go figure. In any case, I decided “What better time to write a Bethel Blog?” We’ll see if my rambling has any coherence to it when I’m more awake.
So Spring Break starts today. I’m extremely excited for the chance to get a little break from classes. This marks the halfway-point in this semester, and I feel as though I’ve done really well so far. I’m glad because I really believe I have given (and will continue to give) my all in my classes this semester.
In one class in particular, Mass Media, I was assigned a project that entails a creative undertaking of some kind. We are to create some sort of artistic project that will reflect who we are in Christ and lead others more toward Christ. The rules for this project are pretty minimal, and I like that. Unlike some others, I prefer when the rules are few and the freedom to do as we choose is wide open. Especially with a creative project, I think it’s important to give some freedom and not micromanage. Well, my professor is doing just that!
So I am turning in a small paper regarding what my project will be once it is completed. As a writer, I’ve decided that I will write a story. I’ve already started it and I’m really pumped about the beginning I’ve gotten. So far, it includes all manner of things, including quite a bit of light-verse poetry. I’ve come to realize that I really enjoy non-linear, playful writing as my own unique style. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
Not much else to say for this week. I’m heading home today, along with two other Bethel students and friends of mine. One is coming home with me to spend the weekend while the other is just hitching a ride. I’m looking forward to the long break ahead, and praise God for rest and encouragement!
