This has been a busy week for me...

I am glad though that I have made it so far.


Like all college students, we like to wait till the last minute to work on projects. But I think now that it is not because we want to, it is more that we have other things to work on. Well, I am heading to a conference / competition in LA for the week. And well, I did not have time the week before to work on my project for this so I decided to work on it after work (6pm). Well I forgot that I had a designer run-through for my other show that is opening the first week of March. I did not get out of there till 11pm. WOW, this is a great time to work on / start on my project. 6 a.m. rows around and it is almost time for me to catch my train. I was able to get everything completed.


I though that I would be able to head to LA and get back to Fullerton in 3 hrs. But the train gods did not think so. My train heading back to the OC was not there so I had to wait 2 hrs for the next one. I did not get back to the OC till 12noon and I was supposed to be in Balboa at 12. I got there at 1:30p. I also got a parking ticket for not parking head in. Silly parking cops. I finished work at 12a, and as I was on my way home, I got pulled over because I guess I looked like a person that robbed someone earlier that morning. First, it is 12am. I’M BLACK! How can you see me???? Oh…. Wait… I’m black and driving in the OC.


I check my messages from yesterday and found out that they moved my time for my interview, so I had to jet to LA STAT!!!! I get down there, and find out, that they didn’t after (no phone letting me know this) and actually they were an hr behind. So I got to LA at 11:30a and did not go till 7pm. But the interview went well.


I get a morning wake up call that I was one of the finalists for the design competition. YEAH!!! So, now I have to go through a final round Sat night. So I am going to be busy all day Saturday. Well, my department chair does not really care that we are busy this week, our light plots are still due, so I worked on it all day today. I finished around 5pm. I have to find her tomorrow and get her to approve it so that I can get my crew to load it in on Tuesday night. You have to love the theatre though, always one show to the next.

New Bike

So I decided to yesterday that I was spending too much money on riding the bus to and from school and that I would be doing myself and my wallet a favor and just buy a new bike. So after church I went to Wal-Mart and met "Chuck." Chuck got no clue on what he was talking about involving bikes. This was kind of scary because the things he was saying would or should have turned me away from buying anything that was assembled by Wal-Mart. But since, I have a tough next 3 weeks ahead, I knew that I had to get the bike. IT TOOK FOREVER. I thought that Chuck was building me a new bike. Well an hour and $100 later, I got home with my new bike and actually rode it to rehearsal. It was nice being back on a bike after 4 months but MAN I am not in the same shape I was in before. I guess it is time to hit the gym again. But that will have to wait till March 10th.

So why did I give up Facebook and MySpace? Well, I was at a young adult bible study group and we had a speaker join us. Tim started talking about how Jesus has given up so much for us and then started talking about "Lent." He challenged us to give up something for 40 days. I sat in my seat debating if it was something that I even wanted to be apart of. I think that I have been fooling myself in trying that just because it was something that was practiced only by a couple of faiths that I should not take part. But I prayed on the issue and I saw a vision of all of the things that Jesus has given up for me. This was a small task compared to the things he has done for me. I looked at the things that I gave more time to than my faith and I decided on giving up Facebook.

What is Lent?

Lent is a 40-day liturgical season that begins on Ash Wednesday and concludes at the Great Vigil of Easter. Sundays are not included in the 40-day count because every Sunday is a joyful celebration of Jesus' resurrection. Though not biblical, Lent has long been a tradition in the Christian Church, and it is thought that the tradition of the 40 days recalls the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness, fasting and being tempted by Satan (Matthew 4:1-11). Lent is considered a time of penance and discipline.


Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog. Since I have given up Facebook and MySpace for the next 6 weeks, I have decided to take up a new hobby. It has been great seeing so many people that I cared about from my past on here and seeing how your lives have been over the years. This year, I want to work on being more open with my friends and keeping in touch with those that I have lost contact with.
