Well I've been keeping busy so far this summer, but having fun while doing it. This past weekend I drove to Knoxville, TN to visit my former roommate Alan as well as a friend of his, Joyful. He's going to Johnson Bible College and is spending the summer there since he doesn't have a car this year. Unfortunately I was only able to be there about 24 hours due to working Sunday morning, but we had fun. One of the highlights was that they still have Shoney's down there. I thought they had gone out of business entirely, but I guess they just closed down in certain areas - like Indiana. All-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, aw yeah. They also have this rockin' used bookstore (McKays) that puts Half Price Bookstores to shame. It was huge. I got two Dilbert books for $1.50 each.
The weekend before that I drove out to Urbana, IL to visit my friends Tim & Fia. I haven't seen them in nearly a year, since they moved out there. It was good to just relax with them and catch up. Urbana is a nice town. It's a college town, but fairly suburban, with lots and lots of trees in the neighborhoods. It seemed pretty laid back. Wherever I live will hopefully have that kind of atmosphere - and trees.
And next weekend I leave for Cornerstone. I'm looking forward to that, it will be fun as always. Plus this will be a trip where I stay longer than just a day, like my last two weekend trips.
More boring crap for you to read later..
