Required Laughter

I have been experiencing a strange situation where the man who is head of the IT department says something not so funny and everyone, as if on cue, bursts out in laughter. He stomps through the office every morning with his little sweater vests of bright colors and complains for about five minutes straight, all the while the other workers laugh with him at his misfortune and complaints. It just feeds the fire I believe. He is not a funny fact he is a little immature for having a doctorate. I guess it is a required thing to laugh when your boss laughs, or is making a joke. I refuse to laugh though. It's not funny. I just pretend to not be listening as I continue to work on audio files and then he eventually moves on to other places and more work. I wonder if the other workers ever wonder why they laugh with him.

I don't know.

uh...come again??

I had my first days of class, and they all went well.
I have Foundations of Discipleship for 2 hours and 45 minutes on Tuesdays,
Foundations of Leadership on Wednesday and Fridays for a little over an hour (with Joe!!!)
Vocation of Ministry on Wednesdays for 2 hours and 45 minutes.

My discipleship class is going to be interesting, and I feel will have a lot of busy work. The professor is a very nice woman though. And I met a girl from Enterprise who knew about me and Joe from a friend of hers at Troy.

Leadership will be awesome. Mostly because Joe is in there :0) but the man who teaches that is interesting and I think will keep things exciting.

Oh man- and the VoM class just may be difficult. It was one of those things where I had to sit there with open so I knew what in the world the man was talking about! there were also quiet a few argumentative folks in there as well.

Over all I think I will be learning a lot of great things about ministry, myself, and other goodies, as well as growing with Christ. And for that I am super excited!

I'm sitting in my first grad class. I haven't been so nervous walking to a class since the wallace days...which was...a long time ago.

I found the place ok though.

It smells weird in here. A mixture of old chinese food and B.O. YUM!

looking forward

For the fifth of sixth time I have written out mine and Joe's weekly schedule of work and classes. It is going to be a full semester, that is for sure. At first I was slightly disappointed at how our schedules didn't perfectly line up, but then I realized that if we weren't going to school right now we would both have to work full time and would be seeing each other everyday at 5. so we are in a better position than that because we will be able to spend more of a day together than not seeing each other from 8-5 (although some days it is the case that we miss each other and don't see each other until 4:30 or 5). Anyway, Classes begin tomorrow and I am nervous about it all. I have been reading to get a head start on some classes and I don't get what the books are supposed to be about. that is not such a good way to start out I guess. Joe and I are taking a class together and that really excites me. I can't wait.

I work tomorrow from 8-12, then have class from 1-3:45.

I have stomach pains right now, and want to go to sleep.

the end.

Hello Sunshine!

It was 52 degrees this morning when I woke up. and it is only September!
I look forward to cold mornings of bundling up and going to classes or work.

The sun is shining so brightly outside, and the fall breeze is beginning to come in.
It feels great to lay in the sun!

Still nervous about classes starting next Tuesday. Don't know what to expect. Can I do it?
