Unusually Tired!

I've felt unusually tired all day today, I think I have a cold lurking away somewhere, so I guess I'll have to blame it on that. It's rather frustrating though, because I certainly need all the energy I can get now, and only walking to the bus makes me breathless and feeling more dead than alive - not good!
I know I have had an intense time now, since I didn't get the usual weekend! Even if I study a lot, I rest more being at home 2-3 days over the weekend, than going to my families (1000 kilometres there and back) and having some play-time there - so I guess that's contributing as well. Still, I need the time to study effectively and not sleeping ...

I had Old Testament/Hebrew this morning, which turned out to be really exciting. At first there was information and talks about a paper that is a part of the course. Since I'm not taking the course in the usual way, I will not do it (I have enough on my plate as it is), but it was still good and interesting to hear how you're supposed to go about it, what books and commentaries are good to use etc. I can always use that kind of information! :)
During the second half of the lecture, our teacher gave us some insight into the work of the Swedish Bible Comission who worked on a completely new Bible translation which was released in November 1999 (it's called Bible2000 *lol*). Our teacher was assigned to it for eight years, and I have always been fascinated about how that kind of work is done. He couldn't go into specifics of course, but it was still really really exciting to hear how the work had progressed and how they went about it!! Fantastic!!

Afterwards, I got about 1½ hours of studying done in the library before meeting three friends for lunch! We wen to a Greek restaurant that I'd never been to before - lots and lots of food, and quite cheap, heaven for students! *lol*
We also went for coffee after lunch, before it was time for Biblical Interpration lecture, with another professor at the Department (in Systematic Theology). It was a bit hard to grasp at times, rather abstract, but once you got used to it, it was really interesting - a lot about how Biblical Interpretation was done in the early Christian Church and during the Middle Ages.

We were done right after three, but due to some problems with the train, I wasn't home until five! I've been really tired this afternoon, so I haven't gotten quite as much studying done as I had hoped. Still, now I have three whole days without lectures, so hopefully I'll catch up a bit then!
