A lover of the liberal arts, especially antiquity in its diverse forms, I am nonetheless wholly devoted to, utterly transformed by divine revelation. I seek to know the thought of the past, articulate my deepest longings aroused by the wise, and understand the uneasy relationship between reason and revelation; all for the sake of proper action and contemplation, both now and in the future.


Seminar, Greek, Math, Lab.

I cannot believe how amazing my classes are. I have never had this much fun. I am exploring universal issues with people who are just as intense about it as myself. What is virtue? Can virtue be taught? What does it mean to be human?

For seminar I am reading Homer's Iliad, and as my Anima Volumenis blog will demonstrate, it is very provocative. I am also reading Ludwig von Mises' Socialism, in which work the Austrian economist tears socialism apart in every possible degree. It is a masterpiece worthy of St. John's.

I also finished The Bible for the first time. For the first time I read the Protestant Bible all the way through. I have not read the deuterocanical books yet, but it will come. I am trying to get a deep understanding of the New Testement, so I am rereading it. I hope to finish it by Christmas, and then I can read the Old Testement between Christmas and summer vacation, during which I hope to be back at HoneyRock Camp.

My other classes are fun. Math class in particular will be a blast once we actually get down to the propositions and I can work them out for myself. Euclid is a wonderfully talented writer.

In short, my classes are wonderful and I am having the time of my life. Everything is so much fun!
