Random thoughts from this week:
- I got a text message from one of my youth group kids last night who heard the news through the grapevine that I am leaving to take another call after graduation. I’m really sad that she didn’t hear it from me first. But I am so thankful and blessed by the encouragement she offered. I love working with high school youth. They’re honest. They’re authentic. And they give me hope for the future.
- So, there was a royal wedding today, apparently. I’m not really up on all the hype over William & Kate’s big day, and I’m kind of sad that the royal wedding hype trumped the tragic deadly tornados in Alabama on the morning news.
- Since the touch screen on my phone went on the fritz, I ordered an iPhone 4 to replace it. It should get here today, and I’m really pumped to finally have a smart phone. Does that make me materialistic? Or just a nerd?
- I have officially survived the last midterms week of my seminary career. Five weeks to go! I picked up my cap and gown this week. It’s really happening.
- I actually watched some TV this week (as in, I had control of the remote for a couple hours). Got to catch a couple episodes of Extreme Couponing, and Michael Scott’s final episode of The Office. It’s not very often that I intentionally watch TV (I spend way more time in front of the computer than I do watching TV). In a nutshell (and in the words of my friend Ryan): Extreme Couponers should work for food banks. Michael Scott’s farewell was perfect.
