I’ve come to realize…

10 June, 2008 (10:07am) | I've come to realize... | 4 comments

I’ve come to realize that over the summer, a lot of things are going to change in my life.

This is just a fact of life. And probably a good thing. I have been making some new friends, and doing new things. Some old relationships are dying and new ones (I hope) are going to take their place. Starting this Friday, I am going to be running a friends online business for two weeks while he and his family go on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Eventually, they are going to be moving there for good, and I am going to be taking over their business for good. He owns two websites, a golf gift site (actually he sells more than just golf stuff, but that is the emphasis), and a cremation urns site. Check them out! Hopefully you don’t have an immediate need for urns, but if you do, he’s the best resource. So anyway, that’s another thing that is going to change. It may not happen over the summer, because they still need to sell their house, and the market is terrible.. but who knows?

Also, I am going to be making some pretty big decisions over the next couple weeks. I don’t want to say what they are, because it might all amount to nothing.. but let’s just say that if I decide to do this thing that I am not telling you about, my life will be utterly upside down. I know you’re just dying to know what it is, right? (Actually, you probably don’t care, but humor me for a bit.) Don’t worry, I’ll reference this post once I decide. In the meantime, I’ll leave you all utterly confused. *Big Grin*!!! Pray for me!

So, apparently Rachskirts seems to think I have some sort of writing talent, because she’s letting me do a guest post series on her blog. Check it out, she just posted the first one today! And be sure to subscribe to her blog. She is totally more interesting than I am, for sure. Plus, she has good make out skills, apparently… go figure.

Just you wait, I’ll be famous for real one day!

Lord, thank you for… sparing me?

8 June, 2008 (2:12pm) | Blog | 3 comments

Today, my pastor spoke on 2 Kings 22. He focused mostly on this verse:

“When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his robes.”
2 Kings 22:11

It was a pretty good sermon, but there was one part where he was talking about the passage in Luke 18 where the priest says “God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector.”

Of course we all look at that and say, “that guy was being so vain! How dare he!” When I realized, I do the same thing. Looking at my life, I have never had any major problems, I’ve never done anything that had irrevocable consequences. So I thank God for that. And rightly so. But shouldn’t I be focusing more on repenting for the ways that I have messed up in addition to thanking God for sparing me certain things? Or should I even be thinking about what I have been spared at all? Who am I to say that I have been spared? My life is just as messed up as any other persons, and I have only myself to blame. What do you guys think?

EDIT: Be sure to check out the comments. inWorship posted a comment that is probably better than my entire post!

I’ve come to realize…

3 June, 2008 (10:03am) | I've come to realize... | 1 comment

I’ve come to realize that I lost some really good friends over the past couple months.

Sadly enough, many of my friends that I used to hang out with all the time are gone. Some are gone in the physical sense, having moved away and all, and some are gone in a deeper way. We are drifting apart; different things are important to us. At am at the point right now where I feel like I don’t have any actual friends. It’s sad because I know I do. But the one friend that I have grown up with and shared so many memories and feelings with… is no longer the person that I want to hang out with when I have free time. I still hang out with him and all, but it isn’t the same. It’s more of a chore than an escape.

However, just last week, God brought me together with an old friend that I never really hung out with and honestly, never even liked that much. We’ve discovered that we are both in the same place in life, have the same goals, the same ideals. We’re both over the old prejudices of “That guy’s a douche bag. Screw him, I don’t like him.” Why? Why do we feel like we have to randomly not like people for no apparent reason? Whatever our reasons were for not liking each other back in the day, we are past that. It’s like a miracle, right when I’m about to give up hope, when I am feeling like my life has no purpose, God comes through.

Isn’t He awesome?

Javier vs Depp

2 June, 2008 (10:24am) | Blog | 5 comments

I watched the MTV Movie Awards yesterday. It wasn’t by choice.. I was at a friends house and there was nothing else to do. Needless to say, I was able to guess who got almost every award. For instance, of course Johnny Depp would win best villian.. he’s Johnny Depp! He won everything he was nominated for, and the entire acceptance speech the crowd wouldn’t shut up and let the poor man talk. Anyway, he won best villian. Over Javier Bardem!!! Come on! No Country For Old Men! He was so creepy in that movie! But of course, it isn’t about who really was the best villian, but who America thinks is hottest.

Not that I’m against Johnny Depp. Just that Javier Bardem was a better villian.

I’ve come to realize that when I talk I spew.

I have trouble just shutting up and letting things be. Part of that is that I am always explaining myself so that people understand me, but sometimes that just gets me into more trouble than I am already in. The problem is that I’m oblivious, and I know it. Too many times, I’ve found out a month after I say something that someone took it to mean I hated them, or I was mocking them when I totally wasn’t. By now, I’ve learned to at least attempt to clarify anything I say before someone misunderstands it, but therein lies the problem.

Can someone teach me how to shut up?

Multiple Choice Friday

30 May, 2008 (1:31am) | Multiple Choice Friday | 5 comments

Hey, guys! How’s it going? I want to get to know you peeps a little more. So, from now on, every Friday I will post a multiple choice question. There are no wrong answers, because it will always be opinion based questions. Unless you diss on coffee. Don’t do it. Punk.

What is your perfect Day-Off Breakfast?

A) Classic. (Eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, hash browns, etc.)

B) Healthy. (Fruit, healthy shakes, etc.)

C) Random. (Cold pizza, quesadilla, sandwich, soup, etc.)

D) Just Coffee.

E) None.

EDIT: F) Other. (Feel free to add your own opinion.)

Mine is A. The Classic. Nothing beats a good hearty home-cooked, fat-filled meal. For the record, I like to fry things in olive oil. Eggs fried in olive oil, topped with lots of pepper… Mmmm, boy…

On most days though, my breakfast is D. Just Coffee. ;)

Praise God for misunderstandings

29 May, 2008 (12:25pm) | Blog | 7 comments

This morning, I went to get coffee from the Starbucks across the street from my work. I ordered a Triple Tall Breve Latte.

Now before I continue with my story, let me just say how annoying Starbucks can be.

The word “Latte” is Italian for milk, right? So, a Cafe Latte is espresso and milk. Make sense? And a Cafe Breve has half and half instead of milk. So what is a Breve Latte supposed to be? Milk with half and half? Well, that’s what Starbucks seems to think a Breve is supposed to be called. I always go there and say “I’ll get a tall breve.” To which the response is usually, “Latte”. I learned pretty quick to just humor them and say yes. But for a while I would be like, “No, I don’t want 2% in it, I want half and half. Cafe Breve”. Punks.

Anyway, that’s my rant. Oh blah dee, oh blah da, life goes on.

So, I ordered a “Triple Tall Breve Latte”, but they made me a “Triple Tall Vanilla Latte”. Oops. Needless to say I scored a free drink. I’m lovin’ that.

I’ve come to realize…

28 May, 2008 (10:38am) | I've come to realize... | 1 comment

I’ve come to realize that my cell phone is the axis around which my life spins.

Now, in my defense, it isn’t all about people being able to get a hold of me. I get maybe 1-2 calls per day. The big thing is the internet. I have a Blackberry Pearl, so I can do a lot more than just text in my spare time. I can answer emails, surf the web, check out comments on my blog (not that I get that many, but all the more reason to know right away when I do!), read other blogs, IM people, update Twitter… the list goes on. And I am officially addicted to it.

It’s pretty sad. If I accidentally leave my phone in my car, I break into a cold sweat. One time, I left my phone at home when I went to work, and when from nine to five without having the darn thing!

I’m pitiful aren’t I?

How about you? Are you addicted to your phone? Maybe I should start up a Cellphones Anonymous Group.. (“Hello, my name is Bob and it has been two hours since I last saw my phone.”)

This post is part of a series I am doing called “I’ve come to realize…“.
