I'm afraid my journal has been really boring recently, especially when I got bogged down in panicking about my thesis, and then I felt I had to update to let people know I'd got it sorted, and blah blah blah.
Now that my life is my own again, I'm hoping to rectify this. So, any suggestions of topics you'd like me to write about? Any of the content-generating memes are up for grabs: ask me questions, suggest rant topics, just tell me what I should write... I don't recommend asking for fiction or fanfic, I'll do it but I'm bad at fiction writing so I don't suppose the results would be much fun to read.
I find it interesting when you write about Judaism as I used to be a Christian.
I'd be really interested in knowing if you are aware of the 'personal experiences' that Evangelical/Charismatic Christians say occur to them occur in Judaism (to the best of your knowledge). These range from a warm fuzzy feeling inside that God is there, to a strong feeling God answered a prayer, to the actual voice of God, to actually seeing demons / angels etc... I have had some such experiences myself if that helps to explain what I mean.
I quite enjoyed the thesis-angst and the thesis-celebration, I didn't find it boring at all, more encouraging for those of us following in your footsteps. If anything I'd request more - you must have some nuggets of wisdom on surviving the writing up process you can pass down to your less exulted friends? You could lock it to interested parties if you're afraid it'll make your journal boring.
This is possibly not what you want to hear having just completed your thesis, but I'd really like to see you wax lyrical about something biological. Explain some really cool thing that attracted you to the subject in the first place, or something like that. Or don't, if you don't want to.
