First day of school.

No pencil case. No Sesame Street lunchbox. No school bus. But today I went to school. Greek. Nothing but Greek. What have I accomplished in my first day of learning the Greek language? First, I learned that I'm not just going to learn Greek, but Koine Greek (a dead form of the language). Second, I learned how to read the stuff. I just don't know what it is that I'm saying. Aside from words like Christos, logos, and agapao, I have no idea what I'm babbling when I'm reading Greek. Oh, and because I'm just starting to read the language, I'm reading slow... what does that mean? According to Alinna, it means that I sound like Dory speaking whale. "Annnnnthrooooooooopooossss." That's Greek or whale for "man".
