2006: The Year That Was

A few reflections on this past year.

Favorite class:
Statics, although Differential Equations was interesting.

Class that was far more enjoyable than I expected:
Spanish Composition.

Longest time spent studying for a single test:
Eight hours, for my Differential Equations final.

Number of nightmares about final exams:
Three, that I remember. The weird thing is that they all came after finals were over.

Best memories from an event:
Being able to serve as a team leader at Youth Camp last June.

Best memories from life in general:
Random, hilarious moments with my family that, frankly, can't be described--not that anyone outside the family would necessarily understand anyway.

Book that impacted me the most (after the Bible):
From a new book, I'd have to pick either When I Don't Desire God: How To Fight For Joy or Questioning Evangelism: Engaging People's Hearts the Way Jesus Did. If you count re-reading a book, then maybe Don't Waste Your Life.

Song that impacted me the most:
Jesus, Thank You. The first time we sang it in church, I thought it was a decent song. But the Gospel is proclaimed so powerfully in it! Every time I've heard or sang it since, I've come to appreciate it more. This song was also an influence in the. . .

Doctrine that impacted me the most:
I'll quote from the song: "Once Your enemy, now seated at Your table." So many times I'd open my Bible and be impacted afresh by this truth. I can't get over it. (Not that I want to.) It precludes our salvaging any pride; we cannot think that we were sinners desiring salvation. Thinking about God's love in sacrificing His Son to reconcile His enemies to Himself is utterly humbling.

Strangest thing I learned about blogging:
I'd worried about not having enough to blog about. It turns out that I have far more that I want to blog than I can get around to.

Realization that needs to bring change:
I don't pray enough.

Realization that doesn't need to bring change:
I've had the same haircut since I was around twelve.

Weirdest current fact about me:
I'm a sophomore/senior.

"Tagged?" Does this mean I have to add it to my ever-growing list of posts that I still have labeled as "drafts?" Oh no!

Good idea, Jason! I love those "family moments," too...something that no one else thinks is funny or appropriate, but even a slight reference to it will send the whole family into giggles :-)

Great post.

I meant to do the same thing.
Found a great list from Doug Phillips, too, but like your list a lot.

Am experiencing your "I'd worried about not having enough to blog about. It turns out that I have far more that I want to blog than I can get around to."

I remember when your haircut was different, we all looked like a field of mushrooms back then.
