Over the last two drives home from seminary, I’ve found myself neglecting my usual radio or podcast distractions. Instead, I’ve found myself thinking about the last three years in numbers (something that doesn’t happen often for me). Here’s what I’ve put together for my seminary journey in numbers:
- I’ve lived in 3 different cities.
- I’ve lived in 4 different houses.
- I’ve had over 8 different jobs.
- I’ve had 2 different cars.
- I’ve spent 422 hours in said cars commuting.
- I’ve spent 1,170 hours in class.
To say that being in seminary has been a major part of my life for the last three years is certainly an understatement. In some ways, I can’t imagine what my life will be like without these numbers ticking off each week. In a much more real way, I am so excited that I can now take what I have learned and create a lifestyle of ministry with my community at Emmanuel Baptist Fellowship and share good time with them.
Not to mention, I’m just glad that I’m actually going to be able to be a wife that’s around more for my incredibly loving, patient, and supportive husband. Every hour I’ve spent away has required so much of him. There’s no way to put into words my gratitude to him for supporting me through this process.
