Plans: Newman U orientation
A.M. Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women admire you for your own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL UUALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Lemme tell ya what’s sad: it’s sad I have to go to a Catholic University to get what I want, but it’s the only University that offers anything like this Rad Tech program. For that I have to endure their Catholic BS, have a crucifix in every room and classroom, use Catholic terminology on occasion, placate them in order to get ahead in life a bit. That’s all fine well and good as long as they don’t EVER require I go to their Mass or participate in their prayer.
Actually, orientation went pretty well; all things considered. It went from 8AM to just after noon with lunch included. When I tried to go get my books I found out there still were a couple of steps in financial aid I have passed up; hence, I had to put my book expense (to the tune of $500+)($500+ for 6 credit hours: SCHEESE!) on a credit card I haven’t used in years. Once financial aid comes in I will pay myself back. At home I went right to the required pages on the Internet and got done what I needed to get done. I AM SO ABSOLUTELY READY NOW!
Ran some errands for and with Audie: she was still pretty much out of it today.
An advancement on her divorce settlement came today. It’s going to take a few days for it to clear both banks. At least it IS there and we can get ready for it.
We went to a Chinese restaurant I had been to several months ago: not so much lately due to a lack of funds. Something has changed because both the food and service was nothing like I remembered it. We put it on our list of places never again to patronize. That’s pretty sad because it really was so good previously.
It really does sadden me that Audie is so sick and so tired so often. It hurts me to know she is living with all this. It’s something with which I have never experienced.
Audie to bed early
The 13th Warrior for the 92nd time: some people would find that to be pretty sad: LOL…
