Unlike most High School teens, I did not go to the first football game. I went to Youth Quake. Look it up. But instead of going with my new youth group, I went with my old one. Mr. Kelly was in Mississippi and Nick had to work, so my new youth group had no way to get there. But anyways....as I was sitting in the car, I was deliberately being ignored and left out of the conversation. Even my best friend didn't talk to me. It hurt. It felt as if....as if....like I was being betrayed. Like a… Continue

I don't know what it means either. It's just something my brother said.
So, today I helped at a friend's church. They had a free dinner for anyone in the neighborhood. They did this last year and I helped with it then, too. Now, I didn't actually cook any of the food there. I just helped wash dishes. I'm sure that you're wondering why I'm telling you this. Mostly, that's just to let you know why I…
I find church government very interesting, especially in comparison to America's modern, two party political system. There are no parties. There are not a set amount of elected positions and candidates do not run against each other. The leadership acts as stewards and servants of the congregation. There are no taxes, so the system works entirely on donations. Church membership is required for participation in business meetings and voting, but membership does not require donations either.… Continue
Normally, I am not terribly interested in hearing a message when I go to church. It’s a horrible confession to make, but often true. I prefer interacting during the service, whether participating in worship or greeting friends. However, this Saturday the speaker’s subject caught my attention.
“Which religion,” asked the speaker, “honors women more, Islam or Christianity?” According to him, many people today believe that Islam treats women with respect and dignity, whereas Christian… Continue

Jane Irwin gets extra points right off the bat for setting her finely-rendered and masterfully written graphic novel in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The setting is never named outright, but the presence (on page 15) of the First Methodist Church, the presence of the famous… Continue

Tomorrow I am going with a group to a church mission. We are staying for 4 days. During the trip, we are going to take the little kids that live at this shelter and go to the zoo and other attractions with them. Its going to be awesome. Even though we have to sleep on the floor and have no electronic access to anything, it'll be worth it because we are helping to decrease world suck. And that's what nerdfighters do best. ;-)
I'm sorry. I have really slacked on my blog lately. I promise to get back into it.
I've befriended a pretty cool vlogger who goes by the name of I, Jethrobot. You should all check out his channel here.
This past Saturday, I saw my first wizard rock show. I drove 211 miles to see Justin Finch-Fletchley, the Whomping Willows, and the Moaning Myrtles perform, and it was totally worth the trip Unfortunately, I missed JFF… Continue

So I've been thinking about this lately, actually ever since I started talking about my nerdy past (and my room). So, I used to do all sorts of stuff in the car, on the way to church. I was never much one for staring out the window, unless we happened to be going someplace novel. If you think about it, I've probably gone to church pretty much the same way hundreds of times. We used to go through San Marcos, along the 76 into Oceanside and then to church. Then, for some… Continue

I recently had one of the most amazing ten day periods my short life has ever produced. I went on my church's mission trip to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Not that I ever did get all the way to Coeur d'Alene...but that was the closest large town. Anyway, due to the fact that we don't have money to waste on our transportation out there, all fifteen of us shoved ourselves into two vans for the three day drive out. We had no room to spare. As a matter of fact, I spent most of my time sitting on my… Continue
