    Got my 5th uni rejection today. I felt kind of depressed, then my lovely friend sent me some scriptures to cheer me up.

    -Psalm 29:11
    -Philippians 4:13

    Hope they cheer anyone else up too

    This is still the first page for me, but I am odd in having it set up 50 posts/page
    Well you be awkward like that then.


    Oh and I thought I'd share this gem I found out...

    You know the fish symbol, right? This one:


    Weeellll... In Koine Greek (which the NT is written in), fish is "ἰχθυς" (ichthus - with a throaty ch) means "fish". But that's not where it ends...

    ...it's thought that each letter from ἰχθυς stands for a letter:
    ἰ for Ἰησους (Iesous - Jesus)
    χ for Χριστος (Christos - "The Anointed")
    θ for Θεοῦ (Theou - genitive of Θεος - "God")
    υ for Ὑιον (Hyion - "Son")
    ς for Σωτηρ (Soter - "Saviour")

    So the ἰχθυς means "Jesus the Anointed, Son of God, Saviour" because the way Greek word order works, Θεοῦ comes before Ὑιον.



    (On a technical note, if the Greek letters come up as a series of empty boxes, then read this.)

    Except without the annoying first pages which always flip closed again :^_^:
    ooh I hate that
    But even worse is when you miss up the first page :facepalm: or even ruin the front cover when you write your name haha!

    Oh yuck, how long is this season going to last for you?
    No idea. I'm hoping it's just the anniversary effect of this week and then after Holy Week things might calm down. Honestly no idea why I can't sleep. I even went to the GP today for something and completely forgot to mention the insomnia :facepalm:

    Bambie: sorry to hear about the rejection :console:
