Hey friends- The past couple of days have been frustrating, a little overwhelming, and very tiring. It’s hard to put into words– so click this link for comics that illustrate the struggle some experience day to day. 21 Comics That
I was blessed with 108 (give or take) fantastic, terrific, fantasterrific days of summer. For about 75% of the summer, I did a decent job of giving regular status updates what I was doing, who I was seeing, where
I want to be with people, but I wouldn’t want to be with me. I want to be around people, but I still want my own space and privacy. I want to be close with people, but I push people
This past Saturday morning, I woke up to the news that my friend Daniel Jones had died. I typically sit in bed and check Facebook and email for a little while on a Saturday morning, but when I read my
Here’s my latest update for Winter 2012-2013! Just a little peak into my life! (Although if you frequent my site, you probably already know all this!)
What are dreams? No, I don’t mean what happens when you sleep– but dreams of what we hope to do, who we hope to be, how we hope to change the world. Hopes. Desires. Ideas. Dreams. It’s interesting how we

In the next couple of weeks, Andrew Peterson and Jason Gray, David Crwoder, and Audio Adrenaline (with Kevin Max) will be blazing through my neck of the woods and I am looking forward to seeing all of them! As I’m
It’s that time of year. The sorority girls are losing sleep, the frat guys are sore, and everyone’s wondering who will win All University Sing. One of my favorite events at Baylor University, my alma mater, is the grand tradition
I don’t know about you, but I usually have trouble falling asleep. No problem staying asleep of course… but going to bed can be tough at times. I’ve tried all the good habits, and sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t.
So, one of the hardest challenges that you face when you have moved to a new place is the search for a new church. It seems like it should be pretty easy. Just find a good group of people that

As the minutes are ticking by, I thought it would be nice to look back on the year and see some of the big moments that defined the year. 1. Finishing my Thesis- Receiving the email from my professor that
I hope you are all celebrating Christmas wherever you are. Tuesday is the day where I usually go over News– and what better news is there than the birth of hope in Christ? It is good news itself, the gospel.
On Friday morning, I logged onto Facebook to see what was going on in the lives of my Facebook friends. I saw that someone got engaged, a few friends were celebrating their birthdays. Another friend was commenting on music, another
I struggle with depression. I don’t know how long, but it’s flared up over the past few years. In my senior year at Baylor, it was the major factor in delaying my graduation for a year. Even as I went
I don’t know about you, but I hate change. I think I’ve dealt with this since I was a baby– loud noises and changes in environment caused me to start crying and freak out. Now I don’t cry as much,
Hey, here are some things I’ve gotten to do over the past semester! 1. Finally attend Wheaton 2. See Les Mis in Downtown Chicago 3. Move into my own apartment 4. Visit a Taize Service- for more info go here- http://chicagotemple.org/worship/taize-worship-services/
So back in the day (Freshman/Sophomore/Junior Year of College) I used to write these Random Updates on Life, and I stopped once I got the website up and running. But now I want to get back into these reviews, because: A.
My thesis is done. My thesis is submitted! My thesis is JUST NOW APPROVED! So now what? I have a few months before camp starts, and then I’m off to seminary after that. So what are the next few months
Music soothes the soul. I have found quite a number of albums that have been encouraging, refreshing, and enjoyable for the past few months. See what you think and let me know. 1. Give Us Rest- David Crowder*Band- This last
So throughout college (at least the first part) I prepared updates on my life and sent them out randomly (usually once every few months). It’s always interesting to look back on what you were up to in the past.
As I have been working with my thesis (and have been for years it feels like), I have found a few fun places to study, write and read. I am not a big fan of Starbucks. Partially because it is
