My first semester at St. Joseph College Seminary is done. I can honestly say I am pretty happy about that. Often times people ask me "How are you liking the Seminary?" and I politely respond something to the effect of "I like it a lot."|
And I do like it. There are some really great people and I have had some good times. I do like it at St. Joe's. Just not all the time. At the start of the semester I spent a lot of time with my friends outsides of the seminary and I was also helping plan Kairos XII. Both those really helped me stayed grounded, happy, and normal. Towards the end of this semester I felt as if I was losing my sense of self. I do not really have one event or person or feeling that I can point to as a result of this. My batteries had been drained and I was becoming a cynical person towards others, the world, the Church, and the entire seminary system as a whole.
I am so happy to be home. All I have been doing in the last few days has been sleeping and reading. It has been wonderful. I am done with the semester and do not have to deal with any of the things back at the seminary for a month.
I am really looking forward to all my brother and all my friends coming home. Hopefully I can return to school in a month with a fresh approach and attitude.
