Despite a raging migraine that started right before I left work yesterday and grew to unbelievable proportions (I could barely hold open my right eye it hurt so much! and still does!), I have completed my homework. This morning when I got to work, I printed out all my written documentation to go with it. Now I just have to get them boxed up and shipped out. I am very excited about this.
I began this class in February of 2006. It took me over a year to finish reading the course materials and then the longest time to even begin working on the homework. At one point, I really thought that I would stop doing the course and just give up. Hoodoo has a lot of what I consider catholic overtones, lots of saints and bible verses used. This has been a sticking point for me as I'm not very fond of Christianity.
I decided to stick this out and to do what I do with all religions. I take from it what makes sense or works for me and leave the rest behind. I guess you could say I'm a very eclectic witch. :-)
So, now that I'm done and hopefully will pass and get my nifty certificate, I'll be able to incorporate what I've learned into my vast melange of my practice.
If I pass...I'll also be able to say that I'm a certified root worker or conjure. :-)
