It was Mini-Week at my elementary school yesterday, where all the students take short classes on fun things that they don't get to teach you as an eight year old Catholic. (It's pretty benign stuff, so there aren't any classes on family planning or multifaith theology, but maybe someday!) They had a feature on it in the Forum today, including a picture of a bunch of kids getting their homemade rosaries blessed in one of the classrooms. I got a little nostalgic.
I totally made rosaries (twice), and learned how to do karate, and make stained glass, and plant trees, and conduct electricity, and play a variety of unconventional instruments. Today, I've been sitting up and reading legal theory, and just came to the depressing realization that Mini-Week might be more practical than graduate school.
