Free Prayer?
Monday. 4.29.13 8:39 pm
I had my first exam today. It went well enough. I have another on Wednesday, and then on Friday. In increasing order of difficulty and importance. Relatively easy semester.

On my way back home, I walked past a girl at a table with a sign "Free Prayer!"

Interesting way to meet people.

So I sat down, talked a bit, prayed a bit. It was really encouraging! I was a little surprised that she wasn't part of any campus group or ministry, from what she said. She just decided to set up a prayer table for final's week. Fun. And she was friendly! Yay people

I need to start gearing up for next semester. Fifteen hours. (PHYSICS hours, mind you.) Payed research. Extended Marshal responsibilities. More ministry responsibility too. It's going to be the fastest semester ever, which is much to my disadvantage.

What this means is that this summer will be devoted to getting my act together. I'm gonna get disciplined. Gonna try to fix some junk with my relationship with God, too. Kill all the birds!

First thing first; crack this astronomy textbook. :|

I've been experimenting a little with alcohol since turning 21 in December. Decided that I don't like beer. Not that I could never like it, but I don't care enough to put in the energy to develop a taste for it. Vodka's OK. I'm looking to try rum next, in keeping with my Puerto Rican heritage. I haven't yet drunk enough to alter my state of mind, as far as I can tell. Not even a buzz. I'm definitely avoiding getting drunk but I do want to see what it takes to get me tipsy or whatever. Otherwise I'm just drinking expensive soda, haha.

That's all for now, folks.

green

My eyes used to have a slight green tinge (they're mostly brown) that seemed to be getting more pronounced. Now I think they're reverting to their normal brown. Sort of disappointing.

-checks mirror-

No, I'm wrong, they're...maybe even more green? I am pleased.

I finally have an almost fully functional Ubuntu installation on my machine. Stupid headphone jack still doesn't work. UGH

I'm honestly worried about getting a job this summer. I wanted to be a lifeguard again but the jokers over-filled their staff and now I'm having trouble getting the certification worked out, since apparently they stopped giving out cards last time I took the class.

The class costs 135 dollars, by the way. Obnoxious.

I was thinking about looking into a more serious job instead of life guarding (yeah, I know,) but I don't want to get into anything too meaningful when I'll just be coming back for research here at Tech in the Fall.

Feeling sort of randomly-emotional right now, fighting the urge to strike up conversation with any of the girls I've been hanging out with recently. Also fighting the urge to compulsively pull up Facebook

mmmmm

I have an idea or two.

HEY that long post is finally pushed off my first page. Huzzah.

Busy Steve.

I wish I'd put in more time to update as things were happening. Now I will be forced to be brief.

Spring break was supposed to be boring. Instead of going home or visiting another university, I stuck around in the apartment. I didn't think anyone would be around. But I ended up visiting some more local friends, spending a day in Cornelia, and eventually I went down to Auburn for the weekend. About a dozen of us in Atlanta wanted to encourage the Auburn/Tuskegee church and hang around and stuff. It was great fun! We shared our faith with random people on the street Friday night, which was pretty interesting (you meet the neatest people!).

On Saturday, a smaller contingency of us drove over to Tuskegee to meet with some of the disciples there. I wasn't aware that it was a historically black school. The whole time I was there, I was one of three white guys...and the other two were guys who came with us. At one point, we decided we'd hop into a "Chat n' Chew," which is basically a party where the various women running for Miss Tuskegee politic and give you food and stuff. I've never been so thoroughly the minority before. There are plenty of times when I'll realize that I'm in a group with no other white peeps, or even a whole room, but this was like high-school prom. It was very jarring for about five minutes before I got used to it.

There was dancing. I danced. I'm not a particularly great dancer, mind you, but at one point my friend Ajax and I were doing the electric slide by ourselves. Like a boss?

I've taken so long to write this that I'm exhausted now. More later.

Sorry, guys

Every time I think about what happened and how things are now, I feel terrible. I wish that I could apologize, and when I remember that I already have, I just feel crummier.

And then it hit me. I'd never seen any sort of forgiveness. Maybe it was supposed to be implied, but I'd never been released from my guilt. I felt a little better after that realization, because now I consciously understand that there's nothing more for me to worry about; all I need to do is wait and see if she forgives me. In the meantime, I need not prostrate myself and make an awkward situation even worse for everyone. Honestly, it probably wasn't even worth the trouble I've already raised for it.

vague post is vague

Tomorrow I'm driving over to Auburn for the weekend. Gonna encourage the church! Hang out, get into some bible studies and help where I can. Then it's back home for school.

Waiting on this guy to upload a fixed build for my phone. The last one broke bluetooth and I'm too stubborn to roll back to the previous build...he said he'd push it out a week or two ago but he's been having trouble at home and I think he broke his computer today so...yeah. It's OK since I only ever use bluetooth in my car, and rarely.

Looked for some good free sci-fi books today. Couldn't find any that aren't already on my list.

I feel like I have this poetic matter rising up in me but I don't know how to work with it. I don't have a specific subject or image, just a feeling. And flashes of light.

Tell me what you think. Not about what I just said, but just in general.
