So I officially start college classes tomorrow. It's a little weird. I'm looking forward to it! However, I'm not looking forward to my very first class, which is statistics... I hate math, it's from the devil. Overall I'm ready for classes though.
Impact has been fun, slightly annoying at parts, especially when they moved devo from the air conditioning to the 87 degree weather.
My roommate fits right in with me and my idiot suite mates. They spent the majority of the day threatening to take away my "Pot O' Gold"
Like I said, he fits right in.

Well I should be heading to bed right about now, but I don't get to, because we have a mandatory dorm meeting in an hour... Who scheduled that???

Camp Barnabas

I recently returned from Camp Barnabas, and it's safe to say that it is the greatest place on earth.
For those of you that don't know, it's a camp for kids with special needs. My church takes a group of volunteers to help out. The week we go is specifically for kids with autism or downs syndrome.
If you're over 16 you're paired individually with a camper. So I spent the week watching and keeping up with my camper, who's name was Keith. He had autism, and could function at a 13-14 year olds mental age. However he chose to act like a 4 year old all week. It was an interesting week, but it was full of lessons I needed to learn. I also got to meet some amazing people who I now consider to be my good friends. It was such an amazing week, and I can't wait to go back and work next summer.

There's A Storm In The Distance

That's right, there's a storm coming.
So grab your gear, and prepare yourself.
Make sure you gather your family.
Because there's a F.O.G. coming.
That's right, a F.O.G.
By this time tomorrow it will be upon us.
That's right folks.
It's time for the thunder of the bats.
The roaring winds of the fans.
And the lighting fast base runners.
The Family Of God softball team is back to defend their title as champions.
Our goal is another perfect season.
So come out and cheer us on.
But don't forget bring your umbrella.

Graduation Day

It's graduation day. Needless to say, I'm VERY excited. It's been a long four years of high school, and this last year has been especially interesting. It's been a good experience overall, and I know the exposure to what the world is really like was a very good thing for me.

I noticed something interesting today. I was driving to church in a car that will probably break down before to much longer, wearing aviator sunglasses, TOMS shoes, holey jeans, a bleached out work camp shirt, with a brand new laptop next to me, and a completely recycled laptop bag to go with it. I think I'm ready for college.

Wise Words From Sports Announcers

It's the NBA playoffs, and I enjoy watching basketball quite a bit. However there is one thing that just ruins a lot of the great moments. The Announcers. First, they don't help anything, and all they do is hop on and off the bandwagon. It doesn't matter who's winning or who's losing, they will root for the team that is winning. They will be talking about how great the team that is winning is, and how terrible the other team is playing, but the second they change places they start talking about how the now losing team has been playing terrible the whole game. They constantly contradict themselves. However, the things they say during the game make the announcers tolerable. For example, this past saturday was the first day of the playoffs (so naturally I disregarded my chores and watched basketball all day) and it was just full of memorable quotes such as:
"If you want to win a game, you're going to have to score more points than the other team."
"When you're playing a best of seven series, the only way to win the series is to win four games."
"You're not going to score any points if you don't get the ball in the basket."
"You're going to get beat if you let the other team score more points than you."
Umm... DUH!!!
I'm not even close to a sports expert, but come on, two year olds can tell you that you're going to lose if the other team makes more points.
It makes me think more about what I'm thinking of saying before I just say it. Because I don't want to sound stupid, or mean. I'm very guilty of the later however. A lot of the times I forget to think about what I'm saying, and I just let it slip out. So I'm trying to correct this significant defect, and focus more on encouragement and love. Instead of sarcasm and hate.
