420???

Awkward....
Today I had a meeting with Steve Brown the worship leader of my church because we were talking about me playing for the 11 o'clock contemporary service, which I am doing this week. So I decided to rewire and re-vamp my pedal-board because it has been sounding like crap lately. So I went to the 99 cent store because I can get 2 9V batteries for 99 cents, as opposed to 2 for 6.49 at K*mart. So on the way out I decided that would like some coffee. So I had Starbucks today for the first time in months. Ironic how my former addiction (iced mocha with an extra shot of espresso) cost me exactly 4.20. Ha.

Ironically also the picture number with my addiction of choice was DSC0420.... 420..... again....

Hididilley-ho-neighborino...

Two words....
Spider-Pig.
It was hilarious....
One of the funniest movie I have seen in a long time. Very political though which was slightly disappointing, but I guess that is The Simpsons in nature... I also love hanging out with old friends that I haven't seen in a long time. Dylan is awesome, it was awesome to see him and play Resident Evil 4. Killing zombies is awesome sauce.

ah yes...

Roller coaster of emotion.....
Saying good-bye to friends leaving...
Arguing so much that I just would like to sleep and not wake up...
Making up and realizing that I am a butt head who needs to get over himself...
Seeing old friends to talk about life and watch a ridiculous movie about a yellow family saving a town....
Hearing about seeing Bob Dylan....
Wishing that this prescription of little red pills would run out when I realize that I have only been on it for 41/2 days, with 25 1/2 to go....
Getting a new car....
Getting frustrated with new car because I cannot for life of me drive a stick shift....
Realizing that I'll need to do is practice with said stick shift for a while before I have it down just like driving an automatic....
Realizing that last night I missed August Burns Red at the Showcase....
Again realizing that The Warriors played last night and I wouldn't have wanted to deal with the Krews anyways....
Realizing how stupid scene kids can be....
Realizing how stereotypes can really ruin peoples view of others...
Realizing that I am hypocrite for labeling people when I hate when people label me...
Realizing that I haven't cracked my Bible for over a week....

Life lately

Life lately has been insane. God has been teaching me so much through people and on my own. For those of you who know me I have been the intern for Magnolia Ave. middle school department for almost a year. It's been really great. I love it, and last week I took them to camp all on my own (besides the other two counselors) for the first time. Lucas is out of town on missions so I was the head-honcho for this little excursion into the San Bernardino Mountains. On the first day everything was peachy, but second day in things got a little rocky. I was totally shocked and surprised at the fact that two girls who came with us and seemed to be having a good time decided that they wanted to go home over a major misunderstanding. A very seriously huge misunderstanding. I was really bummed because one of them was of the Muslim faith and was totally enjoying her stay at our camp. So I totally am bummed that she went home early, but God has his hand in it somewhere. I know that God has a plan, but I was hoping that she would be moved toward the saving grace of the Gospel but instead it seems that only some seeds were planted, although she did say some things that were encouraging, such as "I have really opened my eyes towards things, and I am interested in studying the Christian faith." so that was great, but still discouraging that she went home.
But over all camp was good, and I walked away with some great experiences that I learned from and will be able to really apply in my life and future ministry.
