The first week of school is now over. Most of the classes seem to be decent. The only class that I don’t think I’ll like at all is a computer class. I don’t think she (the instructor) likes Google. It’s basically the same class I took last semester, which is lame.
Someone hit my car yesterday. I’ll have to take it to a body show. It was at the dangerous intersection of Taylor Road and the I-85-west off ramp. We were both okay. I just want to get my car fixed. I don’t like having anything wrong with it.
Prayer in the Darkness is tomorrow night at 10. I hope people come. Something I’ve had to learn is that there may not be a lot of people, but never to be discouraged. It’s easy to get discouraged, though.
This past week has been busy with the release of a new version of E-Blah. It’s been a little bit of a pain this time, as there were several problems at the start. I’ve fixed just about all of them right away, though. I just didn’t have enough people to beta test before release.
I’ve really been enjoying my Urge music subscription. I’ve found so many new CD’s and artists that I would have otherwise never listened to. Ten dollars a month may seem like a lot, but when compared with buying several CD’s every month that costs the same amount, it’s well worth it. Currently I’ve been enjoying Jessie Daniels, Decypher Down, and Fireflight, among others. One of my favorite songs right now has to be “You Decide” by Fireflight. The music video made me fall in love with it all over again.
Someone told me not so long ago that one of the reasons why it’s good to get out of Tallassee sometimes, is to see joy. I guess I wasn’t so sure what was meant by that … until this week. Maybe I wasn’t paying attention. Maybe I was overlooking it. I’m not really sure, but I’m beginning to see that what this person said was true. Maybe everyone’s just hopeless (or feels that way, I should say). I went to several places in Tallassee this week and the people were just so down. I went to Wal-Mart today, for instances, and the lady checking me out literally looked like a zombie. I’m not sure what needs to be prayed for first — things broken (such as drugs and religion) or fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, etc).
Something I have been learning recently is attitude and how I look at things. When I first walked into English class (late, I might add) and realized it was British Literature, I could have turned off and just said I’m going to hate this, or I could go in with the mind set that it’s going to be interesting. So far it has been interesting. It’s attitude though. I wonder if I just have a bad attitude about a lot of things, so that’s something I’m going to try to work on getting out of. I don’t want to make pre-judgements about anything — people, things, places, ideas, etc.
