Beginning again.

Around last Rosh haShana, I set myself a project to write remarks on the book of Genesis chapter-by-chapter; I had planned to have it finished by the end of the year.

Well, I think it's safe to say the past year hasn't gone exactly as planned.

Nevertheless, I'm going to pick it up again. This coming Sabbath is the beginning of the annual Torah reading cycle in the synagogues - Parashath Bereshith - so it seems like a good time. I want to pick up the pace a bit, so I'm going to go by the weekly readings (there are twelve in Genesis) and see if I can finish by the end of the current Hebrew year 5781.

In other news, I've got a new prospective roommate slated to move in at the beginning of November. (The outgoing one only lasted 3 months.)

Work is going well - I've been at this job 8 months now - but the pay is much less than I was looking for and I think I can do better. So we'll see if the new year brings new opportunities.
