Plans: Physiology Final
A.M. Prayer: Tuesday, we pray to Ziu/Tyr and lighting a purple candle (for honor):
Ziu/Tyr, you chained the Fenris Wolf that threatened the worlds. We can’t do that, but we can do other things, some ordinary, others heroic. Remind us of your bravery and your sacrifice. Give us the courage and strength we need to fetter out own Fenris. Keep us mindful of our duties, and help us keep our fears bound as tightly as you bound old Slaver Mouth. Thus doing, we may we share in your glory by imitating you. ZIU/TYR 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: Actually got in some good study time
Worked on the Rheinwood site a bit: http://rheinwood.weebly.com
I got an 89% on the Anatomy final; which brought a 73% up to a 78% for the course. It’s not the best but it was a good gift nonetheless. The 89% was the best I had done all semester. So it’s two down one to go. Tomorrow is the Physiology final: fingers crossed for luck on that one, too.
Needless to say, Audie and I have had it pretty rocky for some time. So many times I have been ready to pack it all in. I have spent a goodly amount of time and energy trying to get her the help she needs; the help she has needed for some time but has been ignored. In doing so, many things have come to light that I had never guessed possible: mostly not for the good. The other day when I shed some tears I thought for sure that Audie and I had come to the end of our relationship because things had happened that…just...well…were outside the “normal” bounds of a public display of propriety. I was just appalled. Today, after most of the pressure of the semester was off, we talked out on the porch and I laid it all out on the table and told her what I expected. At the same time, I laid out what she could expect from me. I am hoping our agreement will hold. I am not ready to give up yet, but that is typically me: seeing things out to the bitter end no matter how bitter they may be. Rather than bitter, I am hoping for things to be better. I think this relationship is worth that sacrifice. So far Audie has been in a good mood this evening: she was even laughing…several times. I cherish moments like these. They are the Audie that I know and love.
Today marks 10 months we’ve been together.
This is our Gebo. This is our relationship. This is our sacrifice.
P.M. Prayer: The Norns The Norns all three are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned
You glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now
That which “was” we clearly see
That which “is” formed now in our deeds
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity
P.M. Rune: none
