Check! Check! is this thing on?
September was the last time I posted. Recently I’ve been inspired to blog again by my friend Audrey. She is a consistant blogger about all things Audrey. I laugh a lot at times when I read her entries. Anyway, i don’t know what to start with, so let’s start with what I’m into these days…
I am doing a triathlon. BOOM! In your face with the bomb! Yes, I’ve in my fourth week of training. I started before the new year, because I figured I would keep putting it off. Now that that’s out of the way, let me explain. I am NOT doing an Ironman. That’s crazy. I am training for an Olympic and two sprints this summer. “Why?”, you may ask? Because I am ridiculous.
I am growing my hair out. I am not into this. In fact, I wish I could cut it. My aunt was diagnosed with Cancer and has been going through Chemo this past year with the more intensive stuff these last three months, so in support I have been growing my hair out for Locks of Love. It’s pretty gnarly. She finds out on Valentines Day if it worked. Please pray for Auntie T if you can.
I love the Kindle! I got a Kindle from my Father in Law for Christmas. I didn’t know what to think or expect, but I love it. Honestly, I haven’t really cracked a book besides The Bible and The Power and The Glory by Graham Greene since I graduated. Right now I am reading a book on Triathlons (Duh!), Ethics by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Bible in a Year (NLT), and a book of letters and speeches from King Kamehameha V. Lots of stuff for blogging in all of these books.
STORAGE WARS!!! If you aren’t watching this, you should check it out. It is about people who buy Storage Units and sell the treasures inside. Sometimes you are a winner, and sometimes you are not. The show is on A&E, I believe. I love it.
There is a band that I love called Three Houses Down. Not Three Doors Down. I made the same mistake. These guys are a Tongan/Australian band who do reggae music, but it has more of an old school feel. What I mean is that they sing about ideas such as religion/politics/social justice and order. Here is a song that they do called, “Oh, It’s Good”. Check em out, and buy the album. the whole thing is good:
Also, I dig David Crowder’s “Church Music” CD. I don’t buy a lot of worship music, but David Crowder is a no brainer. All of his CD’s are good.
Something that I don’t dig: the Trenta.
Other than these things, really, I’ve been caught up in life – parenting, working, hanging out. Also, even with my big thing against facebook, I do still peruse facebook to see what’s up in people’s life. I’ll admit it!!! But, my updates come from my Twitter account on my phone. Also, when I get a bunch of replies to my post on facebook, I feel like I have to reply or I am just a jerk. I guess those are my blogging colors coming out.
