I honestly dont know how I feel about online gathering places of "friends", people sum you up by a profile, they get to know you without seeing your face. We dont have to form relationships using people skills, we just find someone with like interests and comment them with no threat of rejection. People can be whoever they want to be on the computer. Do you honestly think they look like that in person? Do you really know any of these people? This is where life and fantasy cohabitate. Reality sometimes hurts. But it's called life, you can't live it behind a screen. Be human, be vulnerable, be real, be hurt, be rational, be flexible, learn, grow, move on. Be human once again.
Well that was just something I was thinking about. People love to blog their entire life over the internet, but sometimes they get stuck in a fantasy world. That's why I think those words are important.

I thought of this songs that goes along with this day perfectly..it really encouraged me when I listented to it. It's by Relient K. Here's the chorus.
"More Than Useless" by Relient K
"But then, you assure me,
I'm a little more than useless,
When I think that I can't do this,
You promise me that i'll get through this,
and do something right, do something right for once."

"How Can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
~ Psalm 119:9-11

So me, Meredith, Abi, and John went to see the new harry potter. Keep in mind that Abi and John are Harry Potter fans...Meredith and I are not. Mere and I kept telling each other that we should go see walk the line, and we almost left a couple of times. But we decided to stick it out and suffer through...for what reason I really don't know lol. We had fun anyway though. But anyway, I hear walk the line is an incredible movie. So i'm gonna go see it this week over the break probably. Hope u guy had a great weekend! Only 2 days left untill Thanksgiving break.

Today was awesome to say the least. Ami Driver's surprise party was a BUTTLOAD of fun. I really love my friends...because they are the greatest gift God has given me other than my salvation.
So everyone seems to be getting sick lately? I just hope i'm able to avoid catching anything. It would suck to get sick over Thanksgiving Break.
Well since i'm not really writing about much of anything...i'll end it right there.

Well I know when people see entries this long they freak out and tell themselves "yeah right I wouldn't read that if I had all the time in the world." But this is what's been on my mind and i'd like to share it with you, if the 2 people that read this actually care.
As I sat in bible study with the guys tonight, I began to reflect on the week. I thought about a typical day in the life of Garrett Daniel Haynes, and what that's like. Then I thought about how dry i've been lately. Dry in school, dry in a few of my relationships, but most importantly, dry in the relationship the matters the most. My relationship with my Savior. Then I got to thinking....how is it that I got like this? How are christians that are so hydrated get so dry in the mouth? Then a word popped into my head. Motives. What are motives? For me, a motive is what makes me tick. I evolve myself around it. It keeps me going, fighting the good fight of faith, and gives me something to look forward to. Motive is the extra step that helps to push me over the line.
I then realized that it wasn't that my motives were wrong, it's that I had no motives at all. Thanks to awesome spriritual leadership by those whos eyes have been cleared by God the father, Clint was able to help me see that God was actually testing me. He seems to be saying "what will you do, when there seems to be nothing but your salvation to keep you going." Let me ask you this question.
What will you do when you're in the trenches, when it all seems so hopeless....and there is nothing within the sight of a thousand miles to bring you hope? Will you keep fighting, or will you give in to the battle that seems so hopeless. Whether you would admit it or not, its a battle that we often do not want to fight. As a good friend of mine said...it is very, very difficult to fight a battle that we do not want care about and do not want to win. If we are apathetic (meaning that we just don't care), then we have already been defeated.
Well that's what God's been laying on my heart. I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week. God bless.

edit: went and saw jarhead the other night. It had more cussing than an eminem cd and it had some "stuff" in it that the movie could have done without. The story, however, was pretty interesting. It showed the reality of being in a foreign country in the US Marines. Overall, i'd give it a 6 out of 10.
