Stop Moving!

October 21 2005

It seems like for the last two weeks I have been really preoccupied with progression. Right now I kind of feel stagnant as far as responsibilites and relationships are concerned. It's like God has been giving me a big stop/wait sign with a few of my big personal concerns now, and being obedient in this way is not as easy as it sounds. Having a fairly time consuming class load keeps me distracted enough most of the time, but I've had quite a bit of introspection time lately. Allowing God to just scour and reveal all the dirty feelings I've harbored toward people I really like. Though they're not pretty, I really feel much better now that I know what they are and have given them to God. In addition to this, I just got back from the Belle Aire Men's Conference w/ Vance Pittman, and I've had a similar smack in the face/relief type of experience. In reference to John 15:16 he said that God's purpose is being accomplished in my life as I'm living it now, and he later asked "When was the last time we thanked God for putting us were we are?" At this time I honestly thought that the only way that the message could be more personal was for Vance to insert my name somewhere in it. I guess I'm just really thankful right now that I serve a God who is able to be so intimate with me.

On a lighter note, I sadly won't be participating in the costume contest at the post-homecoming party tomorrow (unless someone can magically supply me with a trip to Party City . . . J/K). I wasn't able to find what I needed at the Wal-Mart to become the Phantom.

But no worries! We're playing Lousiana-Lafayette tomorrow, who apparently is significantly worse (rankings wise) at football than we are. So GO RAIDERS!!!!!!


New Pics and Thoughts

October 19 2005

Okay everyone, enjoy the pictures!

At their world premire performance these guys were known as Apprehensive Identity because they didn't have a name yet. I'm now referring to them as Damascus Road, b/c thats what I've been told is the name that's sticking right now. If all else fails I'll just call them the artists formerly known as Apprehensive Identity. J/k, but in all seriousness they did great for a first performance. We'll just have to see what the future holds for them.


Fall Brek Report

October 17 2005

Hey Guys,

  I don't know about you guys, but fall break has been rolling by pretty quick for me. I've passed almost all of my time by sleeping and tagging along (my life story) with my sister wherever she goes. We went to the mall on Saturday where I browsed for clothes I have no cash for, and I saw the girl who lied to me about having a date for the Fall dance freshman year in High School. But I'm not bitter :) My family did have some bad news though. My uncle's (mother's sister's husband) mother died. She'd been in and out of the hospital for a couple of months with lung cancer, and a few other problems. The family seems to be dealing okay with it so far. We spent a few hours with them on Sunday. I guess that's it for now. I have to go pick up my pictures anyway, which will promptly be up on Phusebox as soon as I get back to my scanner. 


Avoiding Accounting

October 10 2005
While I avoid my accounting homework, I thought that I'd blog a bit. I can breathe easy for a while now in most of my classes. No papers, tests, or major assignments for at least a week or so. And I'm enjoying this break from the stress. I'm getting used to life w/o my car again. My dad took it away on Saturday. After he attached it to his truck I just wanted to end our conversation as soon as possible so I wouldn't have to look at it anymore. He told me that I might not have this car the next time I come home. So I've prepared myself never to drive my 960 again. I'm asking for rides again So if I know you have a car you are fair game! J/k, but seriously I think I'm just learning to be dependent again. My nature I'm very independnet and a little recluse so asking for help, or rides in this case, presents a challenge for me. I can be this way with God as well sometimes too, and it's never good. I really do pray everyday to surrender my will to God's, even if it isn't fun. Since I'm a "glass 1/2 full" kind of guy I'm going to look at my immobility as a learning experience.

Dear 960,
We've been together for over 2 years now, but tomorrow we have to go our separate ways. It's okay. It's for the best. And it's only for a little while. You're not feeling well now, literally falling apart. We need some space for a while. I know a great place back home were they can make you all better. Please forgive me, but I have to do this. I hope to see you soon, when you're feeling better.


Thanks John!

This is really weird and probably no coincidence, but I just finished taking another "blog-test." This one courtesy of Mr. John Shults, and it's supposed to tell you what book of the bible you are. Here are my results, and then I'll get to the cool part.
You are Ephesians
You are Ephesians.

Which book of the Bible are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Okay, now can anyone guess the book of the Bible I've been pouring through for the past 25 days? Yeah, Ephesians! And in all honesty, the message inside rings pretty true in my life too. This is my cool moment for the day.

I seriously had to ban myself from all blog sites and message boards today so I could actually be productive. I had an Accounting test today (I think I did pretty well :), a Mass Media Test to study for (tomorrow), work on my monologue, character analysis, character reaction, read a play, my history chapter, my Mass Media chapter, AND do my scholarship work assignment! A bit of caffine, and 3 naps later I think I got a good amount of stuff done. I refuse to worry about tomorrow just yet. I'm still reeling from the day's blur of events.


The Photos are Coming!

October 03 2005
Now that I have my computer back the photos will be coming in by the dozen for the next few days probably. This will most likely steal time away from me studying for my 2 tests and graded monologue this week, but I think I have my priorities straight. Enjoy!

The ugly red "x" that shows up when your computer is in the shop and you can't post a decent picture. So to get rid of the ugly "x" I've stolen one of my MySpace pictures to use for now.


Thanks Mr. Graham for this time wasting test.
