I applied for a graduate program at the University of Arizona in Middle East and North Africa Studies. I really want to do a Ph.D. program in Middle Eastern history one day and this allows me to do a Thesis and to learn two languages required for any program like that one day. It won’t begin until fall 2013 at the earliest but the deadline is New Years Day. I’m looking forward to getting into the program, so i need to do well on my GRE that I’ll take next week. 

Wayland is teaching a Ancient Near Eatern Seminar on the Background to the Old Testament next term, so I’ll be taking that and I’m so excited.
