My Worst Nightmare

So after a fun and exciting last week at Tallowood BC (missing them already), I went to Mississippi to help the fiance move into what will be our apartment! It was really exciting to see the space we will be living in. (He'll be living there until we're married, while I'm in Fort Worth) We realized we had too much furniture, but at least we have furniture! SO, after all of that...

My Worst Nightmare.

I couldn't seem to figure out what day classes for seminary started, so my dad called a friend to ask. The verdict was....drum roll....last Thursday. Gracious! I always had dreams or nightmares, especially in college, that I would some how miss the memo and forget the first day of school. Low and behold, I've done it. Today was my personal first day of class. (Today is Tuesday for those of you who are having trouble with the start of the week) The good news is that Thursday was mainly a syllabus day and I hadn't missed very much. I am taking a class from my youth minister from high school, Johnny Derouen. His passion is incredible, and class flies by! (He's also the officiant to my wedding, so I'd say he's in pretty good standing in my book.) I also was blessed to see a friend, Dr. Allen Lott, and sign up for a piano class. So tomorrow consists of getting textbooks, lunch with Kindel T., and my first piano lesson in several months. Get excited! Let's hope that I succeed at playing something decent.

Masters Student

So I, Claire Thompson, am officially a masters student. It made me feel incredibly awkward and growing older to be sitting in a room of people, most of whom had children, starting their masters degree. I still look like I'm 15 years old, how can I take Biblical Hermeneutics?!
I have orientation tomorrow morning at 8am (does getting old mean you get up sooner?) and then they will "orient" me on all the things I need to know. I am already registered for two classes: Biblical Hermeneutics with Jason Lee and Student Ministry Culture and Relations (something like that) with Johnny Derouen. Exciting!

I am also beginning to finish up my final week at Tallowood Baptist Church and say goodbye to all the wonderful friends I have made. Many of these friends I'll still see at some point, the wedding, maybe a girly party in College Station, but it'll be weird not to see several of them daily. I wish I could just take them all with me back to Fort Worth. We have decided that this week we will celebrate every "last" that I have.

Happy Last Monday Everyone!

We have succumb to the blogosphere

This is our first entry! We have a blog!

Title explained: Claire loves to tell things in long narrative form (long) and Cal usually explains things concisely and to the point. That's why we have chosen this title. (Don't worry, no one is limited on how much they can post) 

Love and future blogging,
Cal & Claire
