Pack Rat

This Saturday I am moving.  I have lived in my current house for six and half years, so I have acquired a lot of stuff.  It has been quite the process sorting through all my stuff.  I am sort of a pack rat.  And by sort of I really mean I am.  I am not as bad as the people you see on the TV show Hoarders, but I do hold on to a bunch of random stuff I have no use for.

Breaking Bones Not Hearts

I’ll make this post a little like a choose your own adventure book.  I have some good news and some bad news I am going to share.  If you would like the good news before the bad, jump to the “Good” section and read it.  Then go back and read the “Bad” section and then finish with “End”.  If you would like the bad news before the good, just read this blog straight through as your normally would.  If you really want to make it really interesting, start with “End” and then read the other two sections in any order.  The choices are yours and yours alone, who’s going first?

Coffee Cake = Delicious, Coffee = Not So Much

I can’t stand the taste of coffee.  If you ever say that to a coffee drinker they always reply with, “It’s an acquired taste.”  My usual response is, “Well it’s one I don’t care to acquire.”  People have often tried to get me to taste stuff by telling me that I would barely be able to taste the coffee in it.  I would always be able to taste it, and it was usually the aftertaste I was left with.  So I just would avoid coffee.  If I needed a caffeine fix, I would just drink soda.

Metamorphosis of a Cowardly Lion

Today at church Pastor Sean said something really awesome. He said that courage is not a feeling. If you are waiting to feel courageous it will never happen. When he said that it made me think. It made perfect sense. I think back on my life and there has never been a time where I went into something feeling very courageous.

My Mom’s Keys

We’ve been talking about vision, purpose, and destiny lately in church, and it’s made me think about why a lot of people, even Christians, don’t do what God wants them to do. We know we’ll be happier, more fulfilled, and more successful when we follow the plans that God has for our lives, so why don’t we do it? I think a big reason is that we don’t know what God has for us.

Principles

This semester is going to be interesting.

I’m taking 3D-Design, Film History Since 1940, Logic, and Screenwriting.

I also have been given the amazing opportunity to intern at Trailblazer Studios which does a ton of post-production (editing and the likes).

Why do I tell you this?

Because it’s all about stories! Continue reading

Peter Furler = Newsboys?

This past weekend I went to the WinterJam tour.  The band line up seemed pretty good so we got a group together from Charisma Church and went.  The event way exceeded my expectations.   I don’t own any of Skillet’s CDs but they put on an amazing live show so I may have to pick up a couple of them.  Peter Furler was there and played mostly old Newsboys songs.  One of the songs Furler played was I Am Free.  Continue reading

Couch Potato

I have a secret to tell you guys.  You would be amazed how much cleaner your room looks if you just put up your laundry.  I know it seems simple, but it’s so true.  There is a random tidbit for you to take with you and use however you want.  It has nothing to do with this blog, it is like a bonus thrown in at the beginning.
