Man, I am so worn out. Emotionally. Mentally. What-have-you. I'm even having a hard time going to sleep, though that might just be because I'm going too early.
And I'm getting head-aches. I never, EVER get headaches. Not even if I'm really sick, which I'm not often anyway.
Right behind both ears, but especially to the left ear. -.-
The whole stage fright thing is wearing off, which is good. I don't want to feel like it's a big deal, because it really wasn't. Besides, I'm really starting to hate big deals.
Sean's leaving on a "Manly Man Trip" with a few guys from Youth Group. Just for the weekend. In all seriousness, I'm glad he's spending that much time with someone he *actually* respects. If I tell him off, he just figures I'm siding with Mom for brownie points or something, even though that makes no sense, and I call her out too. Charlie can definitely sort him out, given enough time. He sorted me out. Not that I needed that much sorting. Seriously. I guess Dad just made a bigger impression on me than on Sean, not that I can blame him.
This post is turning a little morbid. JUST a little.
AJ thought I'd broken into his house earlier today, because the myspace homepage on his computer greeted him with my user name. Same thing with facebook. I bet it's because I always use Mozilla at his house, and he switches to IE without even realizing the difference. Which would mean that today is the first time he's used Mozilla in...three days, and he doesn't even know it. Wow.
We called him Sloth on the Appalachia trip. Funny story behind that.
I think I know where my headache came from. I was playing with that mosquito ringtone on the internet, and I turned it up real loud to see if Sean could hear it downstairs. *Don't try this at home.*
I once tested my hearing range with a pop-up add by playing ring tones of ever-increasing frequency. I got up to 18 or 19, and I can't remember if it was in megahertz or kilohertz or what. That's pretty high, even for my age. If someone hits the breaks and I'm not IN the car, then I have to cover my ears. Really, it's that painful.
Remember when I posted about a subject, really getting into the nitty-gritty of it, (or so I thought,) exploiting every possible angle? Nowadays it's more like my brain vomits on the keyboard. A slew of half digested thoughts,
Man, if I could finish that sentence, I'm sure it'd be almost poetic.

So, the Appalachia Mission trip. It was amazing. I don't feel like going into detail, unless someone specifically asks. It's not like I'll have trouble remembering it. I took over 300 pictures/videos in a week. Not bad.
The title is my new nick-name. Why, you ask. (Or should that end with a question mark?)
You'll find out when I get back from this short party. Later.
OK. So. I got the nick-name because there was this open mike thing at evening session on the last day of the trip. There are about 8 youth groups, some very large, and the staff are asking for volunteers to go to the front of the large room and share about how God blessed their trip. Normally, I think these are fun to listen to, but not so much fun to actually do.
I felt very moved by this week. So I went up there. And talked.
And it was great. Apparently I'm super funny when I'm nervous. It might have helped that my opening line (I sound like I was a comedian at some show) was, "Hello, stage fright."
Once I got started, it was hard to stop. I had so much praise to tell. The guy in charge actually told me to hurry up. Meh.
The week was amazing.
I have a facebook.
Katie got back from China, but I haven't gotten a hold of her yet.
I made a few friends in Pathfork. I just can't wait to go next year.
So much better

Things are better. Pretty much.
I'd like to preserve a few great jokes from the trip.
"What's good for the goose, is always, good for the gander." Charlie
"NOBODY LIKES A CHARLIE IN THE BOX!" Clint
"So, how do you guys feel about masturbation?" Not a joke, but definitely a conversation starter/ender by Charlie.
"Did you poooooop?" Amber
"AH! Somebody took a dump in my nose!" Charlie, again.
"I HATE you ALL! No. Really, I love you guys. Just shut up." Charlie
"Riles, you have curves in ALL the right places." Me, talking about scoliosis.
"Have you met Dominique?" Me, talking about...never mind.
I can't remember anything else that transpired. Ah, well.

I just got back from the Horizon Conference. It was pretty awesome.
I figure I'm going to need a lot of God's help soon.
I feel like she blew me off. It's probably not all in my head, either.
All of a sudden, I don't want my story on the net. It seems cheesy to me.
OK. Don't worry, my friends. I'll be fine. Probably wiser, too.
