a personal post: photo challenge - 9

Day 09 - a picture of something you want to do before you die

church divinity of the pacific - berkeley, CA

 attend seminary
i know this is probably an unexpected answer, considering i work in fashion and all that, but my real passion is feminist theology.  i want to attend divinity school and earn an advanced degree, ideally a doctorate so i can hopefully one day teach at the collegiate level.  i have been through a long journey in my spiritual life but really found my niche in studying spirituality.  i realized that i feel closest to God when i am learning about the Divine.  i have what some "traditional" Christians may call a liberal theology, but really i feel that i am about as traditional as they come - I believe in one God, even though we each may call Him/Her something different.  
working in fashion has been really fun and i know i will continue to do it for a few years, but ultimately i need to fuel my real passion and hopefully pass on what i have learned to others.  i want to change lives the same way that my college chaplain and main religion professor changed mine.  they opened my eyes to a whole myriad of theories and writings i never knew existed, and encouraged me to question and explore and above all - read.  i love to read about different theologies!  due to the store i am unable to read very much but when i was nannying i was averaging one book a week, at the very least one every other week.  man oh man do i miss it. . .
so one day i will attend seminary.  it's just not the right time yet.

sorry for being overly personal, but i suppose that is the goal of these posts.  right?

i promise, i'll go back to just writing about pretty dresses and design and such soon enough :)
