I have already blogged about this elsewhere but not over here on this blog. I find it interesting how the subjects in which I am interested in have changed since I started at rabbinical school. I would say that when I started my favourite subjects (and those to which I was most looking forward) were.

1. Chassidute and mysticism (I know that they are not necessary interconnected but I somehow have linked them in my mind).

2. Talmud

3. Mussar

I was not at all interested in either Homiletics or liturgy. I would now say that although I still really enjoy Talmud and am getting much better at it. My two favourite subjects are Homiletics and liturgy. This maybe because I have a bent towards the practical. When I started out as an undergraduate in Chemistry and Biochemistry I had thought I would enjoy the more theoretical elements the most. However I found I loved 'spectrographic methods' and natural product synthesis the most. So maybe this is merely the continuation of old patterns.

Anyway not much is new I study, work, sleep and fit the mundane obligations of necessity in as best I can. The boiler in the flat broke over the weekend which was fun but its mended now. I shall endeavour to be punctilious about keeping this blog updated. But no promises :)
