I'm Allergic to My Socks

It's true. Monday my feet started itching something awful. They had red bumps all over them.


At first I couldn't figure out what it was. Then I realized the red bumps stopped exactly at the point my socks did.


I had just bought a pack of Hanes socks. They said something like: "double strong heel and toe". When I looked at the materials, they had rubber latex listed. So now I know that I'm allergic to rubber latex, and I'll have to be careful when buying socks.


This week has been insane. Times like this makes me thankful that I know God.

I'm Going Bald

Ok, Now that you are all staring at the screen. Its true. But its not from old age. After I get back from snowboarding, I'm going to shave my hair plumb off. Some people dont' believe me. My brother said he'd fire me (then he said he was kidding), but I'm going to do it.

In order to better understand how this would make me look, I did a little digital photo editing:


I Started with this photo. Its not an original, but almost:



Then I got rid of most of my hair in paint, cut and pasted it into another program, edited it some more, and finally pasted it onto a new background. Check out the steps:


What do you think? should I shave it? (I will anyways, but your free to give your opinion.)

Virginia Trip

I just got back from vacation in Virginia yesterday.
It was a blast, and we had some really great services. The good news is I took TONS of photos and videos. The bad news is it will take hours for me to sort through photos and edit videos. I am working on a DVD with a cool menu and all that. If you want one I can probably make you one. Just don't plan on it being within the next week!

Youth Camp Discussion "Video"

This is a discussion during Miracle Deliverance Tabernacle youth camp 2007.

Note
The video was removed as it offended a visitor. After reviewing the video I agreed that it was rather foolish in some parts.

Great Message from Brother Jerry Merrell

Jerry Murrel from Virginia came to preach for a 3 day revival. This is Sunday night's message. One of the shortest messages ever, yet very powerful. Everyone should watch this one.
Does the way we act make Jesus feel like an unwanted guest?

Fireworks

Ok, so this is a very late post, considering the 4th was 2 days ago, but oh well.

We went to the Regional Park in Athens this year. It was great. We saw a lot of people there we know, including neighbors and folks from church.

The grand finalle was over, then they had a much better 2nd finalle. It was awesome. Afterwards some of us talked a while, then played Ultimate Frisbee

Talk about a great game.



After an hour or so, they started shooting off more fireworks. It was insane! The fireworks were supposed to be done. The only thing I can figure is that they found some fireworks they had previously lost. Either way it was sweet.

An Enormous Change aka Dr. Pepper vs. Coke













Ask anyone. I hated Coke.

With a vengence. I put it down, insulted it, and teased those who drank it. It was my enemy. I would far rather drink (sewer) water than drink it.

And I loved Dr. Pepper.

My favorite drink, a delicious break from life.
My friend. For a while it was all I drank.

Then, one day i was at work. The water was gone, and the machine was out of my friend Dr. Pepper. In fact, the only thing left was Coke. I felt terrible. My friend had abandoned me, and left me sitting in front of my enemy. I was thirsting to death. There was but one choice:
I got a Coke.
I took a sip.
Then I realized this enemy I'd had for so long wasn't so bad at all. In fact, it was great!
So I made a new friend. Dr. Pepper I still like, but Coke isn't bad at all.


Explanation for those of you who didn't get it:
1. I have hated Coke all my life
2. Now I like Coke
(my that was easier to say)

10 Reasons I love Blogger

Here are the top 10 reasons I love Blogger.

1. It's FREE!!!!!!

2. I can easily check out all new posts from all my friends using Google Reader.

3. There are less shady and possibly dangerous characters hanging around blogs as there are on MySpace.

4. MySpace is so over-rated.

5. You can customize almost every aspect of it easily & switch between templates.

6. I'm using Blogger!!!!!!! (enough reason for anyone to switch)


7. All cool people use Blogger. (are you cool?)


8. You know you want one.


9. Because it's a Google product, you can know they will treat your information confidentially.


10. You can be as anonymous as you like. (just give out fake information, or none at all)

OK, so most of those were rediculous reasons to use Blogger. But I did convince you. Right??

Pictures of my Newest Nephew

Here are a couple pictures of my newest nephew Samuel Ezekiel.
I've actually had them for a few days, but keep forgetting to post them. (typical me)

Soon I plan to start working on my brother's website. Right now it's been partially done (by someone else), and has some major design issues. I took a class in website design last semester, and so it shouldn't be too hard for me to do.

I recently found a Google product called Reader. It has become a valuable tool for me. With it, you can read all the newest posts on all your favorite blogs (and other websites) without having to go to each blog. It does a great job of organizing them, and even archives them if you want to look at them later.

I have been using it in a combination with iGoogle, another great site which allows you to have your email, news, blog posts, and my favorite: Daily Garfield Cartoons all in one window.

Also I found a cool website with free daily software giveaways: Giveaway of the Day.
There you can find computer programs that usually cost money, but are free for one day.

Done With School!


This is how I felt the last week of this semester.
Rather green, cross eyed, and tired. But I endured it.

Right now I'm working full time for my brother Isaac at Best Buy Metals in Cleveland, selling metal roofing and such. I'm enjoying it, and it will help pay for college come fall. Dad of course is not so happy about it. He feels I have abandoned him forever. Oh well, such is life.

We just moved all the instruments to the left side of the church, so I had to crawl under the stage to move some wires. Talk about dusty! You wonder if anyone ever thought of cleaning under there. I guess they weren't thinking of me. Ah, the joys of being a drummer!

Modesty

Modesty.

You might ask "What does this have to do with you, you're a guy?".
The fact is, it has everything to do with me. I am the one who has to keep my mind pure, and away from bad thoughts.
Recently I found this awesome survey at The Rebelution. They polled hundreds of guys, and asked them what they thought about modesty. You can look at it HERE. I highly recommend every girl to take a look at it. And that's my bit of advice for the day.

On another note, college is going well. I had some difficulty in statistics today, but I think it will be okay. I'm loving my website design class.

New Year, Still Lazy Blogger

Happy (slightly late) New Year! I know anyone who used to try keeping up with this blog has now officially given up (after 2 months of not posting), but here I am anyways.

I managed to finish my first semester of college with good grades, and I'm now on my break working to pay for next semester.

I somehow ignored the money conserving side of my brain and went snowboarding from December 26-30. It was Toby, John Mark, Tristan, Elijah, Josh, & I. We went to Snowshoe, North Carolina and carved some snow. Josh managed to take a lot of pictures and video, so I hope to get a YouTube video up here in a few days showing all the fun.

Next semester is looking very promising. I have finished many of my "boring" classes, and I'm getting to the good stuff. I think my favorite class I'm taking is Web-site design. It's something I've always wanted to learn, yet never had the time or resources.

At church, I've taken on a new challenge. We are now streaming live video on Sundays at 11:00 am and 6:00 pm, and Tuesdays at 7:00 pm. I'm mostly the one who sets it up each service. You can watch live by clicking Here. Or, if you want to watch a previous service, check out Holy Ghost Online.
