I’ve become impressed by the note taking abilities by people at the church that I go to. I see people who take the neatest notes using multiple colored pens in the fanciest journals. The notes I saw yesterday were so meticulously tidy, I had to lean in and squint just to make sure her journal notes weren’t typed. And I sat by someone who was using an iPad too (and realized one good thing about the glass keyboard was silent typing). In comparison my sermon notes are pretty lackluster. I just use the sheet of paper they give us. I don’t take a lot of notes when I’m studying for exams (although I do type up a cheat sheet for myself to review, which I think is more than most do). I guess the bulk of the studying is the practice problems and sample exams. Hmm, maybe they should pass out some of those at church, although I’m thinking a multiple choice question like, “Which of the following are signs of hypocrisy?” would be too easy. I guess like the Society of Actuaries’ exams, the real tests are more tricky.

Note: This is not the first time you looked at other people’s notes at church!

[…] sure I have no reason to be embarrassed. I mean who really watches other people take notes in class […]
