I’ve been in the city for almost 3 months and I haven’t written one single word on here. I thought I’d have more time to write but the challenge of going back to school has certainly been keeping me busy. I’m adjusting fairly well to the city life except for the whole not going out between 3pm and 7pm due to CRAZY traffic jams….it’s no lie….Toronto traffic is nuts!
A little while ago I was considering adding a Philosophy minor to my degree so I went to speak with one of the Philosophy professors who somehow convinced me to major in Philosophy! I added a religious studies minor onto that so I now have the best of both worlds. It’s been really neat how I feel like God has just orchestrated things at Tyndale. I never would have applied to major in Philosophy in a million years but not that I’m here in this environment I’m learning that Philosophy is such a great fit with my personality and the inner workings of my mind. It fascinates me how God moves us into the places where He knows will be best for us and it’s not something we could ever figure out on our own.
So that said….I’m now a Philosophy Major and with the addition of the minor plus all of my transfer credits I’ll be at Tyndale for the next two years hopefully!
I never would have been so engaged in my studies if I decided to go to University earlier. College was a whole different ball game, much more practical….my mind is being stretched beyond belief now and I feel as though a lot of my world view is in pieces on the floor and I’m entering into the intentional and somewhat uncomfortable process of trying to figure out which piece fits where. It will be a lifelong journey but I think it makes for a more meaningful and rich life. It’s slowly changing me.
There are so many things I could write here….things that I’m grappling with and oh so many new “city lessons” I’m learning….and I’m sure I would put more effort into pouring them out here if I didn’t have so much reading and paper writing to do! It’s the life of a student I guess!
Words can’t express how thankful I feel for this time in my life. Time to learn and think and be in a different place. It’s such a gift.
Along with my lack of writing I have also not been taking as many pictures as I would like to….my hobby of photography has also been put on the back burner a little bit but I have managed to capture a few shots of the first few months….here are just a few favourites…
I hope fall is finding you well….and I hope to be able to write a bit more when things slow down.
Grace & Peace,
