I looked at the cross, then I looked away...handed you the gun, blow me away

I really should go to sleep, but I can't. I really don't like that...Dude, my work called me 3 times today asking if I could come in. Even though I told them in the beginning of the week that I couldn't work this Saturday; and I refuse to work on Sundays for religious reasons. Though dude, I guess they were really busy, but I felt bad that I couldn't be there to help them out.

My parents went over there for dinner and they talked to my manager and told her that I was at a church activity. I guess my manager remember, cause she told my parents that I have been doing an excellent job working there...heh that's really nice to know :-) I still feel bad that I didn't come home in time tonight to at least go in and help for a few hours before they closed, heh. I really enjoy working there...just hope I don't turn into a work alcoholic, heh...

Ah, this week has been crazy. Especially yesterday and today. Yesterday I had school (of course) and once I got off I had to go to the doctors, and that took forever...then I had to go straight to work, and didn't get off tell 11pm and I didn't go to sleep tell around 1am cause I had to get stuff together for today. Then I had to wake up early today to go meet up with my youth group at 9am to go down to the city to hand out lunches to the homeless. Then right when we came back I had to go to singing practice until church started. Now I have to be a church at 8:30am tomorrow...oh goodness. It's cool though; it's all good...

Anyways, dude, the trip to San Francisco today was pretty cool. It went by super fast though. Us youth kids made lunches for the homeless and handed them out. This one lady even let us pray for her...that was the highlight of the day for me. That's just down right awesome dude. Though it was cool handing out lunches and all...but I don't really feel that I made a difference. I mean, yea a lunch will put some food in their stomachs for a couple hours, but after that...that's it. That doesn't bless them with a place to come home to and feel safe at...that doesn't give them a job and clean clothes. I remember seeing this one guy crawling on the sidewalk with his bags and stuff, and laying against the wall to fall asleep. I wanted to hug him, be there for him, talk to him, something! It's hard to just walk past someone like that and feel so utterly useless...but I understand... I mean, I can't save every homeless person...but if I could, I would...

Hmm, today's message at church really hit home for me. When I watched the video they showed, it reminded me of the things I went through when I was young. Heh, it definitely brought me to tears. Through the whole message, I just had tears streaming down my face...blah, it also made it worse the fact that I was extremely worn out. I don't think I'm going to stick around for the message tomorrow...heh, don't feel like crying anymore. I'll just go down to bay street or somethin'...heh.

Heh, I just remember that tonight is my junior prom, heh…oh well

Well, I really should try to go to sleep.

Have a great night...

why are you running away? does it make you admit you're afraid?

Heh, I usually don't use question marks in my titles for stuff...but it just fits. Welp, I got a job today, yay. Heh, that’s cool. I start tomorrow too; super fast. My mind is pretty much racing through all the things I am gonna have to take care of. I'm gonna have to do a lot of praying to get through it. I have work this week from Tuesday to Thursday, which isn't bad. Though there are a few activities that I'm going to have to stop attending...blah. We'll see. I'm really just going to have to hand this over to God and let Him do His thing. He knows what to do better then anyone else :-)

I had singing practice tonight and it was pretty cool. My director, Daniel, had his computer hooked up to the sound system at church and we were all able to sing to the songs individually into a microphone. It felt like being in a sound system, or somethin' like that. Though after we were done singing individually, he played back what we sung...esh. That was the worst part, heh. It really helped us out though, and we were able to hear ourselves and figure out where we were messin' up. Good stuff...

Oh dude! Good news... my rad friend Christina, might come work with me! Dude, that would be so cool. Though she seems like a busy gurl, but we were talkin' about it tonight and were both psyched about the idea so we'll see what happens! All right, I have some stuff to take care of and then I have to hit the sac...

Later dude...

It's goin' down for all the world to see

Dude, spring vacation went by super fast. Though that's usually how it goes. I went to Colorado for the week and had a pretty good time. I've never been out to eat so many times in my life! Though dude, Colorado has the best restaurants, heh. The people are really friendly out there too. And the Denver airport RULES! It's like a super mall, way cool.

Hmm... I really don't want to go back to school tomorrow, but in reality, who does? I'm looking forward to next Saturday though. The youth group is heading out to San Francisco for the day, way cool. Were going to make bag lunches for the homeless and head down there and hand them out. I've been told that the handing-out process goes by real fast, but the fact that your spreading God's love to these people and reaching out to them has a major impact. Heh, man I'm lookin' forward to that. Though next Saturday would also be my junior prom, heh. Oh well...though I think I'm the only junior out of my youth group that's not going to prom. Heh, aren't I the odd ball...or whatever.

All right, I should go do my homework. Have a great rest of the day!
