And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. Luke 18:1
it's always a tough spot when we are seeking our own will and not God's

Success! In procrastination

I have succeeded in procrastinating, yet again, for the past hour+ this morning.  Congratulations to me!  Will I ever get off my butt and get anything accomplished?

On a side note, part of my procrastination is due to me rationalizing it by the fact that I have to work this afternoon.  Don't know what the logic is there... but it's there somewhere.

I would rather write blog posts than my philosophy midterm

Well it is quite true: I would rather write blog posts than my philosophy midterm.  I have a 7 page paper that I should be writing for philosophy class, but I'm procrastinating.  My mind is consumed with trying to overcome the formidable obstacles between no-name blogger and famous professional blogger.  It is going to be a long, long journey my friends.  Why I can't get it out of my head, I don't know.  Maybe that's just the way I am. 

Writing about yourself and what you think, what you feel, what experiences you've had, and what your opinions are is SO much easier than trying to draft a 7 page research-oriented quotation-laden paper about a myriad of philisophical topics that aren't much more than abstract thoughts pinballing around inside my head. 

That and I'm good at procrastinating.

But procrastination is the last thing I need to be doing, because with this new job and all, I have so little time to work with that it's not even funny.  The least I could be doing is reading some of my philosophy book in order to get a better grip on everything that's going on, and to catch up on all the reading that I missed. 

Dang midterm paper.

Why couldn't we just have a test?  Although I suppose having a take-home paper should be easier, the simple magnitude required from us is staggering. 

Oh well, I should get back down on it.  Later.

Thanks so much!

NEW BLOG: "Greg Rides Trails (....and talks about life)."

Creative Expression

Creative expression: it has always been crucial to who I am as a person. Much of it began to take shape in the form of a newspaper that I published all by myself (with a little help from my Mom) back when I was in elementary school. I wrote all the articles, designed the pages, printed it off, and distributed to all of my friends and friends of the family.

In early and late high school, it manifested itself in awesome hair, adamant musical tastes (which I still hold), and pursuing sports just because I thought they were sweet.

Since then, much of my personal self expression has taken place through the sports that I have poured my time and energy into. Skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing… I love them all! But as a purely creative outlet, my blog was my primary method of expressing and creating. Beginning as an independent website named “Randomer” in 10th grade, spreading out to a straight-up blog by the same name later on, it was an important part of me continuing the trend of being me, and saying what I want to say in a way that I thought was cool.

Hopefully this sort of self expression will make the jump to this new blog of mine, and transform itself on the way over. I want to take it to an HNL. To a semi-professional level of quality, while still maintaining the “me-ness” of it all, and not caring too much about where I put all of my commas.
