My Life on Sunday

This week has been pretty good. I didn’t do much yesterday but I made up for it today. I updated the server today. Nearly all of the software titles running on the server has went through a very extensive upgrade. It’s been about a year since I’ve spent that amount of time on the server. This comes along with a little fix (I hope it fixed it) I did on Friday with the servers keep alives.

This morning I got up at 9:20. That’s not good. I had just enough time to eat me leftover pancakes (made them yesterday) and take a quick shower. We were late to church by about 3 minutes, so I guess it was pretty good. I should get up at that time every Sunday morning, actually … well … maybe not.

Tomorrow work resumes. I love my job. I thank God for it, it’s what I like doing and everything. I’m starting to get a little more talkative I believe. I’ll be in infrastructure for another day (Monday), and then I’ll be back at the circle (ACSC). I like working at the circle. Infrastructure is nice, but I really like ACSC the best. I just enjoy working there.

Today I called Jonathan, whom I haven’t talked to in probably about two to three weeks. He’s been working and busy, so I can see why he’s not been online much. He’ll be a senior this year, school starts an early August 8th for him.

One of the best CD’s of this year will be out soon! Thousand Foot Krutchs’ new CD comes out Tuesday. I’ve already preordered it … and I’m so ready for it to come out. I’ve been listening to the seven songs they’ve released over and over for the past few days. It’ll be nice to know all the lyrics and listen to the rest of the CD. I hope to get it by the end of the week … it’d be nice if it came soon.

I need to get in the bed.

Just Smile and Wave

Just smile and wave boys, just smile and wave. Of course, that’s yet another quote from something I heard today. I went with the family to watch Madagascar. Overall it was a pretty good movie. It was obviously geared towards a younger audience, but I enjoyed it.

Today I went out to help troubleshoot a building on base. This time the DHCP server had run out of IP addresses for this particular area, so we had to call around and try to get some of them free so we could use some of those IP addresses. It was something to do. I used a Link Runner today. Those things are so nice, just hook ’em up and then find where the cable is your trying to find by listening for the signal in the closet. Quick and easy, quick and easy.

I believe, though, I’m going to go ahead and camp out for the night. I’m tired and been busy nearly from the time I got home from the movie. So, here I go: to bed.

Breathe You In

Wow, I’ve not posted since Sunday. So this might be a long post, might not. A lot of things have happened this week.

First, the title of this entry is from a new song off of the new Thousand Foot Krutch albulm, The Art of Breaking.

I’ve always been strong
But I can’t make this happen,
’cause I need to breath,
I wanna breath You in,
a fear of becoming,
so tired of running,
’cause I need to breath,
I wanna breath You in

That’s some lyrics. I love the lyrics, so awesome. One of the great more worship oriented songs out there. That’s the song of my heart right now. I just want to breath Him in. Anyway, the CD comes out Tuesday, and I hope to get it by Friday (I pre-ordered it).

Today was diffrent at work …. I did a few things (not that that’s diffrent), but it took about the same ammount of time I had nothing to do. I went and watched a DSL router/modem be installed. I got to see inside the phone area (where all the phone cables on base go) … that was pretty cool. So, so many wires. And these aren’t cables — these are thin wires all over the place. Then you have cat 5 and fiber all over the place. It looked very complicated, but it seemed the lady working there knew what she was doing.

Later today I went to another building and got to see a switch that had lost it’s OS (fun stuff right there), and we had to go upstairs and copy the OS from it’s memory to a PCMCIA, then copy it to the other switch. I got to enter a few commands (wow, hands on), and then we left and it was about time for me to leave.

It was raining pretty bad this morning when I got in to work, it poured right before I got to work, so I was soaked when I got inside. Tomorrow is “lax” day, which is where I can wear jeans basically, so I’ll wear me some jeans. Yeah, it looked pretty bad with soaked khakis walking in to work. They dry quick, though, so it’s all good.

It’s just a little less than two weeks until Colorado. Wait … I mean, there is LESS than TWO weeks until COLORADO!!!! Okay, a little excited: yeah. Three years is too long, far too long. I’ll be in a big city with two Best Buys and a (gasp) CompUSA once again. It’s been too long, too long.

I’ve been reading a lot of news at work, as I always do, and I have found several really cool things, one of which is a cool keyboard that let’s you change what each key is. Why it took this long for someone to think of this: I don’t know. I just wonder how much it’ll cost and when I can get me one (if it’s good as I hope it is).

Well, I believe I’m going to try to go ahead and get in the bed. I’ve been going to bed a little late, and getting up far, far too early. So I’m going to go ahead and fall out I guess.


Life is but a whisper, but does that mean we have to whisper? Live life loud. I want to be real. As with every post, I’m just going to post whatever comes to my mind and my heart.

Life is but an instance, but yet it can seem so long sometimes. We’re not promised today, nor are we tomorrow. Tomorrow may never come. In as quick an instance as we come from our mothers womb is as quickly as life can be taken away. It’s so sad when I meet people who aren’t really worried about life. Life cound end today — where would we be? Sometimes we “sugar-coat” the place of suffering by saying it’s “the bad place”. There are many bad places here, and compared to hell it’s nothing like the areas we encounter here. I want so desprately to see the people of America turn their hearts towards God. I see so, oh so, many people who go to church that live just like everyone else. So many people claim Christianity (almost 80% do, to be exact), but yet so many act so worldly. I’m not judging them, but aren’t we caled to live to an higher standard? Justifying things we know are wrong just because they “feel” fun … is that really right living? It breaks my heart to see people stray away from the arms of a God who loves them beyond compare.

Investigate my life,
and make me clean

Awesome lyrics by Delirious.

So where do we go from here? After we fall in love with someone, don’t we pursue them? Why don’t we pursue Christ like that? I definatly don’t pursue God like I want, should, or need to. I say I’m bored all the time, yet I never seem to be able to just find that time for Christ. It’s something I need to work on.

Moving right along …

I’ll be going to Colorado Springs, CO at the end of the month. I’ll be leaving on July 27th and I’ll get back on August 2nd. We’re leaving to go to Desperation ’05, it should be awesome. It’s at my old church, New Life, and will last 2 full days, 3 nights. I hope to really just fall in deeper love with Christ while I’m there. The entire time I’m there, I should be at the church, pretty much, so that’ll be just as awesome.

Tomorrow is another work week. I believe I’ll be going into the ghosting area next week, but I’m really not sure where I’ll be at. So far I liked what I did last week the best, I had something to do and all. Last Friday I got my first paycheck I’ve ever got in my life. So that’ll be the start of my college fund, I guess, lol.

I went to bed at 3:00 last night, for some reason. It’s the latest I’ve stayed up … since I don’t know when. I’ve been getting a MySpace account up. I’ve had the account for a while, just never done anything with it (I really hate MySpace, lol). So anyone who wants to can go check it out. 😛

It’s that time again … the time of the entry where … I leave.

14 Hours

Somewhere between 12 and 14 hours came chatting.

Life. When you go to the store, do you think about life? Do you see a husband yelling at his wife? Do you just look away, or is your heart filled with compassion? When you’re standing in line ready to pay for your “stuff” do you look at the others standing with you and see them like Christ, and filled with compassion for them? I know when I’m anywhere, I just look at people like there’s nothing wrong … but what if who you’re looking at is so broken, they just want to die? I see people daily, but what if they’re the ones I should be witnessing to. Am I witnessing to them? Am I loving them like I should? Hell is such a real place, yet when I see people, I never think of the torment they might encounter when they die because they may not know Jesus. Sometimes I don’t do the things that I want to do. Anyway, just food for thought.

6:30 AM — it came, it rang, I was awoke.

Tonight I’ve not done much, heck, I’ve not done much the entire day. I woke up around 1PM, and then I got something to eat at around 1:30/2ish … then I did nothing the rest of the day but bummed in front of the ‘puter. I thought about gaming a little, but traded it for listening to the latest church service from New Life Church. It was on Hell. Pretty good teaching, the last 10 minutes defined the entire message. That was the best 1-hour time span I allotted to my 12 hours of being continuously awake.

So, whatever happed at 6:30, now yesterday, morning? Well, Emma woke me up with MSN. See, I went to bed at around 10ish last night, as I was just so tired, therefore I didn’t turn my away message on or set MSN to “Busy”, so I could still get sounds. When I got to my computer Emma was on. She had her webcam, so we had a nice little webcam chat, lol.

It’s time for me to end the blog for tonight. I’m gone!

God is Good!

History. I love History. I love studying History, one of my favorite channels is the History Channel. I watched about two hours worth today at work. One show was about balistics. Very cool how it all works. 🙂 The other was about tanks and Jeeps. Then I had to do a little work, and then it was time to clock out.

He’s (God’s) so freakin’ awesome!!!!!!!! How do you express feelings for someone who’s blessed you beyond what is even imaginable? Can you? Not in all the words of the dictionary is there a word that can describe his awesome, awesome, greatness. There are times I’m just feeling so down and “hopeless”, but those are the times I ultimatly need to put my eyes on the One who can help me. God is Love. The creator of the universe loves me. He’s just so freakin’ awesome!!!!!

There comes a time when we just need to look at his awesome greatness. I do more asking than thanking Him for all he has done for me sometimes. I mean, Christ gave his whole life up for us just because he loved us, what kind of love is that? I mean, I might give my life up for someone I love greatly and someone who loves me back (such selfish love), but would I give my life up for someone that hated me and wanted nothing to do with me? That’s what Christ did for us. That’s what he died, was beaten for. There’s times when I feel like I can do everything, but then there’s other days where I don’t even want to get out of the bed (well, that’s every morning, but you get my drift). There’s a time when life throws this nasty curve and we’ve got to put our complete faith and trust in the ONLY one who can bring us out. *screams* He’s so freakin’ awesome!!!!!

Short Post

Todays will be short, I think.

Today was a new day (it was?), with new things (eh?), but … fine I stop with the same stuff I say every day.

At work I had to help profile computers. Profiling them is putting them on the domain (chaning the computer name, for instance), and then setting up the users with e-mail (finding their account basically) and getting their calendar in Outlook all setup. It’s easy, takes about 10 to 15 minutes per computer. It may take 30 minutes when you’re into a good part of the movie. Yes, we were watching movies. We watched Scary Movie 3, Wrong Turn, and Bruce Almighty. Were they good? They were decent. Wrong Turn was probably the best, but I hated how much blood and gore was in it. We started watching Any Given Sunday, but after a while I asked the other intern, Cody, what the story really was and he didn’t know … and so I was like, “yeah, every other word is a cuss word”. So we changed to Bruce Almighty. Stupid movie, I’d say. It gave me something to do though.

After I got home I bummed it out. I saw Emma got on and left me a few IM’s at like 12:00 PM today. Too bad I was at work. I looked at hundreds of profiles on MySpace and found … maybe 3 that were interesting to actually read. I think I only found one that didn’t say “Christian – other”, but the bad part about it is … they didn’t act like it in stuff they were saying. *shrug* That’s just how it is I guess. There were a few that I was like woah … awesome people here. I added myself as a friend to a lot of those Christian groups space. Oh, know the sad thing about the “Christian – other” thing is … most probably go to “Protestant” churches. 😛

Anywho, it’s time for me to hit the hay. More profiling ahead for tomorrow. 😀
