Fried Brains

I have fried brains.

I could blame it on the heat…

I am trying (unsuccessfully) to learn the Hebrew alphabet for my summer school class. Geesh. I really have a Western brain.

Right to left reading is just not working. Let alone keeping the jots and tittles correct. Memorizing the consonants? not happening… Learning final consonants? Vowels? Schewas? Transliterations? fuggedaboudit.

If you have any suggestions, good drills, tips and tricks, or just encouragement, please send them my way. I am really REALLY not getting this.

It’s days like this that I wonder why I am in seminary anyway… I am feeling very stupid at the moment.

C'mon. Say something! But play nice. All comments are moderated.
