The List

Today I decided to find the pre-reading list for grad school. The list is a little formidable, but also exciting. Some are titles I've wanted to own for awhile, and others are by authors I love. I wrote out most of the titles, then priced the book and shipping on Not too bad, considering there are 24 books, coming in at $250. About ten dollars a book (for those of you who love to have the obvious stated).

Twenty-four theology books is a bit overwhelming. What the heck am I thinking?!? I'm thinking that at this rate I may not start my degree till NEXT August. But with titles like Postmodern Times, by Gene Veith, who can complain? And Building a Christian Worldview. The Sacred Romance. Wonderful!

I think I'll have to set up a separate bookshelf for my degree. Yay! Maybe I'll take over Libby's corner of the living room, since she prefers to chase the cat when she's here. And my new laptop should arrive this week, but that will take the place of this one. Well, I'll be putting it away in its case when it's not in use, not leaving it out to be abused. I rather like it when the screen and base stay together at all times. Not having to prop the screen is another plus.

What all of this leads to, who knows? There's a strong probability that I won't blog much come September (when I hope to start - I don't know how long it takes to get started). But what fun for me!

Until I write again ...

So what are you studying in Grad School? I don't think you ever mentioned it... or did you and I just forgot?

I am finally getting to the point where relearning Calculus isn't scary anymore. Books help. A LOT. :)

Good luck!

Ooo! I'll be a masters of arts of religion major! It's the only virtual degree RTS offers, and I like the diversity of coursework. Very broad. Like my hips.

That's so cool!

Brandon and I are taking a class on church history at our church. As a prank for our teacher, we're all trying to come up with off the wall questions for him when he returns next week. :D
