Looking for God in humanity.
Good luck with the move!!When a close friend moved out of the Bar-Ilan dorm after 4 years, he had to transport two car-fulls of stuff. It simply accumulates... much like paperwork which multiplies.http://www.lab-initio.com/250dpi/nz345.jpg
DONE AND MOVED and I am now officially homeless. ;-)God, I love Yechiel (he's one of my awesome Scarsdale cousins.)
No, that's not that much stuff.When The Cousin's sister graduated from school, she had so much stuff. (Contrary to me who is more of a minimalist). Her move out of her dorm well--that's a different story for another day and time.So whereabout are you currently residing?
thanks for taking care of the tziyus problem at the top of the page ;-)
>thanks for taking care of the tziyus problem at the top of the page ;-)I think the new one is worse. What would Freud say - sometimes a lollipop is just a lollipop?
Cousin,Haha, I can imagine- she was also THE sorority sister/ popular lady of the hour, so I am not surprised.As for where I'm going to live, it's a long and convoluted story I shall explain to you in the near future.Other Folks,I think you should worry over something other than my headers. If a lady with bare arms is actually that titillating, I don't understand how you walk in the street.
And you- Freudian- your mind could use an airing if that is how you think. That's honestly disgusting, and not at all what I was thinking.
Chana,Frankly, I was just having a little fun with the guys who were implying that the girl on your previous heading was immodestly clad, although I am guessing they were not serious about it either.There is no need to get so upset. I didn't realize you're a Jungian :)Enjoy your summer...
I think the changing of the header deserves a complete commission of inquiry!Any disappearance of Calvin and Hobbes should be investigated!(Granted, I usually read the blog via RSS, so I may be a bit behind on header changes)
Chana, I was just joking about the picture (I haven't read any of the Twilights either).Though living in Meah Sh'arim for a year at age 16 wasn't the healthiest thing I ever did....
Walter & Yossele,Hurrah for the fact that you were joking; this makes me happy. Yossele,You seriously lived in Meah Shearim at age 16? Why? Where are you at now/ was it an interesting experience?Cousin,*Insert smile*
I guess "tongue-in-cheek" does not translate well to blog comments...
I graduated high school (in US) and went to an American Yeshiva in the heart of Meah Shearim at age 16 with my kippah srugah. I got along well enough with everyone in the neighborhood (and none refused my money when I bought groceries or anything else), but it would have helped if people would teach their kids not to stare.I left after a year to attend a hesder yeshiva, then to a catholic university in the US, got semicha & BA....It was very interesting being in Meah Shearim. I picked up some things in their culture like how to walk & look down. I didn't attack their way of life at all (besides always going out with my kippa srugah) but did see some things I wish I hadn't. They should use their unique place as tourist attraction to be mekareiv people, but instead they berate visitors. One Friday night still stands out in my mind - a guy yelling at foreign tourists to get out. They did nothing wrong. I'll stop here to prevent a wildfire.I was able to frequently daven with R' Elyashiv's minyan, which was cool.
Walter & Yossele,Hurrah for the fact that you were joking; this makes me happy. Eye did wink, didn't eye?
Gavi,No, it definitely does not...Yossele,So interesting! What do you do now? And how was the hesder yeshiva/ how were your experiences different at both places?Seriously, so, so interesting.
Well, the Torah was about the same at both places. I made friends for life at both places. I personally grew intellectually in both places. The hesder Yeshiva actually was much bigger (& had a decent library) so it was not unifocused: there were more opportunities to learn from a broader range of rabanim; Additional shiurim in halacha, hashkafa and machshava; and no less important, more peers with whom to mingle, and more chances to see more of Israel (i.e., go home for a shabbos with someone), as well as more touring. The broader range of students, with their different personalities, goals, backgrounds and nationalities was no less important than the broader range of shiurim offered. (I liked the hesder yeshiva a lot more.)Now? Finishing Grad school (math), learning (Even-ha'ezer) & blogging.
Yossele,Super-interesting, thanks for sharing. Can you reveal the whereabouts of your grad school (or is it a secret)- do you plan on teaching/ being a professor with your math degree? Also, if you did Hesder, does that mean you served in the army? (So are you an Aliyah person who lives in Israel now?)(I'm a very curious person; I always like to know about people.)
Chana,My grad school is in Chicago. I plan on working in financial markets or industrial engineering and not teaching math.I was in the American program of a hesder yeshiva; I did not serve in the army myself. I have friends who have been/still are paratroopers, tankers artillerymen, infantrymen and medics (the medical students usually are transferred from their original units and become medics). I was on Shabbatonim visiting soliders for Shabbat. I've attended induction ceremonies for Givati (infantry), visited an air force base and have been on a Merkava tank (it proably didn't have an engine, it was just for show).You ARE the Curious Jew!
Wait, so you go to a school in Chicago?! So cool! I should meet you sometime over the summer; I'll be back in Chicago and that will be awesome/ you can tell me all about your completely fascinating life. Does your whole family live in Chicago or do you just dorm?
Sure.I'm from Chicago, no dorming.
