Just wanted to say I've heard A LOT about this new craze called PINTEREST on the internet and thought I'd finally give it a shot. Apparently it's a digital bulletin board where you "pin" up the things you like. You need an invite, though, to get on so if anyone else wants to try it comment on this post or message me with your email and I'll invite you. To check out my pinterest boards, click the button below:
Classes have resumed. My denomination blog is not up. Of this, I am aware. However, there is good reason. I am working on it, but because of the year or so of study, this is getting quite in-depth and lengthy. Therefore, in all honesty, this is looking more the length of a book/short story than a blog post. It remains to be seen what the final version will look like but once I have it fully completed I will decide how best to distribute it. So for a while news on that will be muted.
Did I mention my classes have resumed? So far they seem alright. I have a history of Christianity class that I can tell will be a lot of work -- what else am I going to think bringing home 8 textbooks for the one class? But it's a study I'm passionate about and therefore think will go well!
I'm also taking some media studies classes, print journalism classes and my seminar. All of them seem like they'll make for a good semester of learning. Hopefully not as stressful as the last...that was crazy, just ask my girlfriend! But all in all it is kind of nice to be back, though if I was still off I'd have more time for my blog and my own essay as mentioned above...oh wait...forgot that's muted now, I digress.
But hope everyone that had to start their classes back up again is doing well. May God bless all your efforts as you strive toward your goals -- college, high school, grade school or personal. It's a new year people, and therefore new chances to let your light shine (and by that I mean both your faith and your talents God has given you).
I plan to post some blogs on devotions I've been working on in the coming weeks as well as maybe a few other topics so keep an eye on my blog. One thing you should know about me is I'm unpredictable at times, and since this is my personal blog, all bets are off...at times.
Just wanted to put up a quick post as to what I've been up to lately and an apology to my readers that I haven't posted in a while. I recently returned from my first ever trip to Michigan to see my beautiful girlfriend, Bekah. The trip went great! I took the Amtrak train which was a new experience but it was fun, got a little boring after reading a few chapters, listening to music, reading a book and eating with still two hours to go, but I managed -- seeing her was totally worth it all.
But, that's what I've been up to. Now I'm finally getting back into this. I'm working on a blog post that has been on my mind for months and I'm now getting everything set to write it. It's going to be the longest yet and the most researched. So much so I plan to also have a PDF of it available for those that want to read it in a more normal format. It's going to cover the concept of denominationalism and Christian unity. It's something I'm very passionate about (ask anyone that knows me) and I think it's getting near the time that this issue should be addressed. However, I didn't just want to throw something out there without getting everything straight first.
I've been researching this for probably about a year now or even a little over so I am prepared. Look out for that in the near future. My goal is to get it up before my classes start on January 23, but that remains to be seen.
I also just did a site revamp with a more streamlined page, updated resume and header picture as well as a few other things. I'm probably also going to make a blog post about typewriters (speaking of my new header photo) because I also love them! Keep a look out for my normal posts about devotions as well as writing tips as I plan to get those rolling again too after my denominationalism/ecumenism post is completed.
The REaD Writer
Due to the 5-10 (on average) articles I write per week as a reporter, I no longer keep up with my blog regularily. I will keep it online, however, so my previous posts can still be viewed. Enjoy!
