I love thee very much. How amazing is it that my 2 years on 4th Hill, we win decade skate twice, someone on our floor is elected as president twice, and how everyone came back to the floor. Such a huge blessing to share with these awesome gentlemen, these heroes. <3
Something I thought I had. Little did I notice the corruption that was slowly seeping through my soul. I became complacent with my faith the past couple months during lent. I didn’t really manage my time well, spent too much money, and I was most definitely prideful.
You see, I’m used to being in a community that encourages me to be good, and to tell me what is right or wrong. I’m not a child anymore and I need to gauge where I am every second I can now. My faith is mine alone to own, and I’m going to own my faith for sure.
It’s really a scary thought to see how far I’ve fallen, but I’m glad I realized how prideful I became before it got worse. God hit me in the head and put me back in my place. Yeah, I haven’t done anything terrible like murder, rape, or stealing; But, sin is all the same. No sin is more sinful than the other, and just being prideful in myself and my selfish behavior was very sinful in itself.
Now, I’ve got to climb back out of this hole. A mentor would be nice as well, someone older than me preferably, maybe someone I knew in the past. I honestly wish I could go back to the “good ole days” when my old church was in its “Golden Age” but unfortunately I need to move on from that. Time to pack my bags, get my chin up and pursue God like no other.
Thank you God, it’s been awhile since I’ve asked for you to humble me. Make me a better servant, a better human, a better friend. God you are so good to me, and I am so thankful for my family, because they are still providing for me and freely paying for my school. You’ve blessed me with an amazing and loving father and mother, and I am EXTREMELY thankful for them. God, you make all things good. And I believe you can work through my life, erm, I mean, the life YOU’VE given me. Thank you father, bless me, my family, my friends, my church, and my school. Thank you for everything father. Amen.
A new addiction has arisen on 4th Hill, it’s not “Laugh out Loud”, oh no no no. It’s League of Legends. It’s a game a few people on the floor have been playing since the beginning of the year, and now about 10 more people on our floor have picked it up. It’s a free game and anyone familiar with DOTA(Defense of the Ancients) will instantly know what it is. It’s basically the same thing but a little friendlier to the noobies.
Overall, it’s a very fun game! Lots and lots of strategy so it makes for a fun time with friends, especially when you go to gang up on unsuspecting players. I wouldn’t say I’m addicted, because although it’s fun, it’s EXTREMELY time consuming. Most games last about 45 mins on average, and don’t get me started on really competitive games!
The game is fun, but for me I think Starcraft II is MUCH more fun, only because it’s so much more rewarding to win, and also because the games don’t last as long. If only I could play the many games that are to come out this year! Curse you midterms for making me stay up this late, blogging about a game that I don’t really care too much about, yet find somewhat amusing.
The games I want to play right now: Portal 2, Skyrim, Diablo III, and Battlefield 3
<3 Video Games
P.S. Don’t worry, God, You’re still number 1 in my heart, video games are like my toys, and you’re my papa who provides me with the goods :)
After hours of practices, hours of working on the soundtrack, hours of choreography, hours of prop making, and hours of planning, our hard work has payed off. Everything really went better than expected! Decade Skate 2011 is 4th Hill men’s once more!
But this year, I must say, we had some seriously awesome skits, 1st Hill had the SICKEST water/light drums show, OUR 4th Hill women put on such a great show, it’s really a shame they didn’t get anything, but I think this year everyone just stepped it up in general. We even stepped it up from last year.
Overall, I’m glad I was on 4th Hill when we won Decade Skate 2010 and 2011. Such an amazing feeling. This was such an amazing accomplishment!!!
Everyone on 4th Hill worked so hard, and it showed. We win!!!
“Sometimes a breakthrough comes on its own. Most times,
though, you experience a breakthrough when you have no other
When your back is up against the wall, you’re going to find
a way to get through that wall. Even if it once seemed solid
and impermeable, when you must get through you’ll find a way
It’s good to get out in front of your challenges, and to
plan in advance for what you think will happen. Yet even
when the unexpected happens, and even when it feels
completely overwhelming, you have what it takes to
successfully make it through.
When you must, you will. Keeping that in mind will give you
the confidence to step positively forward every day, in
matters both large and small.
Though it’s smart to carefully plan, it is truly a waste of
time to worry. For even if the worst does come to pass, you
have what it takes to make the very best of it.
Take a rich, deep breath of fresh air, and feel your
confidence grow. Jump joyfully and enthusiastically into
life, knowing you can handle whatever may come.”
here goes nothing! All the hard work we’ve put into decade skate is finally going to show tomorrow. I must say, something that usually takes 1-2 months was finish in the span of about 2-3 weeks. I’m more impressed by the how quickly everyone learned the choreographed dances. Splendid. I am now less stressed, but still a bit worried because our main character (Bieber) was not there. Hopefully everything will go better than expected.
I’m proud of my boys, we worked so hard on this and I’m sure we will do well! Through out this whole week I’ve felt like a drill sergeant, but I was reminded by a friend that this is for FUN, and that we should have fun! It’s a great bonding experience. I’m sure we’ll do fine :)
As for the stress, I can finally stop stressing about decade skate and just perform tomorrow and then start stressing about homework!!!! >.<
You know… even if we don’t get first place, the time spent on decade skate… okay this is bullshit, WE BETTER GET FIRST PLACE! WE PUT OUR HEARTS AND SOULS INTO THIS! Now, all that is left is to re-master the sound and practice the dance parts as well as the cues. Hopefully everything will fall into play and everything will work out. God is good. Amirite?
to finally have massive amounts of homework… I never knew Business Statistics would be so $%#@ing ridiculous. My professor (Killingsworth) has got to be the worst professor EVER. EVER. I haven’t learned a THING, and we are already assigned like 5 hours of homework assignments PLUS a project?! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! ON TOP OF THAT I’ve been working my ASS off for decade skate, and it’s basically three people working on the whole thing… Man, I shouldn’t even really be complaining, the math/engineers/biochem majors have it MUCH worse. I’m such a little baby.
I guess I’m just frustrated because not as many people are enthused about decade skate as I am. It’s really one of the biggest highlights of the year, and I would expect people to be more excited. Oh wells… I need a morale booster, a hype of sorts, because I am slowly running out of juice! I’ve fallen asleep multiple times just working on it just from sheer exhaustion… ugh. Nevermind, WHINE WHINE WHINE. I’m gonna man up. I swear. This is just to vent a bit. Need to get my mind off things and start choreography for a fun time next next Saturday! STAY POSITIVE. OPTIMISM IS KEY. GOD IS MY HERO.
