I guess I've been relatively uninspired to write lately, even though there's been stuff to write about (including many-a-funny quotes, which have all escaped me now of course).
In the music arena, I got the shiny toy guns (STG) cd in the mail last week. It's quite fabulous and pretty much all I've been listening to. I finished an interview with STG's Jeremy Dawson a couple weeks ago, and finally got it online yesterday. I'm pretty pleased with it, for being the first interview I've done.
In the life arena, things are going. Barring some divine intervention, I should be graduating in December. I could graduate sooner since I only need 3 more classes, but they don't offer the classes I need during the summer. This chapter is overdue for completion in my life. August 1999 - December 2005. Hooray for the 5.5 year program! (Though in my defense, I should point out that I took two semesters off.) I'll be very glad to be done.
I'll also be glad when the questions - “so what are you doing after graduation?” - stop. Heh. I guess overall it's understandable, and not that annoying. It becomes annoying to me, I guess, because I don't think many people share my mindset. It's not about having a “career” for me, and I feel that's what's being asked about. Several people know, and several more don't, but my post-graduation plans include walking across America. “What??” See, exactly. That's how I thought you'd respond. I've wanted to do a cross-walk across America for years. It's not the type of thing most people want to hear in response to their questions, so typically I avoid it and give the general (and correct) answer that “it's on my tentative five year plan to be out west in California.” Other than that it's pretty much up in the air. I have a lot of dreams and interests particularly in the realms of youth ministry and music, but no, I don't have specific direction for them yet.
And I'm ok with that.
