14. Non-fictional book.
Again, fail “month of tumbling” prompt… unclear unclear unclear. A non-fictional book. I am currently in Perkins 1st floor in the reference section. I will walk to a nearby and interesting book and read a random sentence from it. It happens this time to be a non-fiction book too! “The Best Places to Launch a Career” by Lindsey Gerdes. On page 138, profiling Walt...
13. Fictional Book
Thank you Liana L for asking the question: “to be honest, i don’t know what this question is asking. favorite fictional book? a random fictional book? a book that doesn’t actually exist but i think should be written? what?” http://elusivexo.tumblr.com/post/542651081/13-a-fictional-book Same goes for 14. Non-fictional book. Like a book mentioned in a fiction work that doesn’t...
"How to Choose a College & Keep Your Faith" (IV... →
May I point out… “Christian colleges and universities may not necessarily be the most faith-building choice. This is not to denigrate the quality of education provided by the members of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, or similar Christian schools.” And attending college as a member of an evangelical minority group tends to strengthen the faith of a...

Tres interesante. The fact that I’m not surprised or as unsurprised as the author is probably a good sign that I’m aware of what I’m getting myself into.

Justin Bieber & Tina Fey. It’s so uncomfortable/awkward that I couldn’t really laugh the first time haha… “That’s not aight”
My Last Worship Leading
I just finished putting together a massive folder full of materials related to worship leading. I’m having a big briefing with new IV worship leaders at 3:30pm today and I had to get everything ready. This big folder contains… All the past documents that I’ve made — every retreat/LG worship set plan, every WTeam meeting handout & prep sheet, all the past...
Interview with Adam Young (Owl City) about his... →
I’ve always heard these off-handed comments or speculation that Adam Young was a Christian. So here’s the interview evidence that it’s true and provides some legitimately interesting and substantive insight into what his faith is about.
Just got back from Charlottesville. I made the trip (there and back) in 2hr 45min each (Google Maps told me it’d take 3hr 47min each way) but pushing speed has left me pretty tired. Will reflect more on the time there once (1) I’m rested and lucid, (2) I no longer have a Russian paper hanging over my head.

12. Ideal Girlfriend/Wife
This ithe guiding principle and then I’ll give the specifics for me. It basically comes down to this: I HAVE TO BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER. SHE HAS TO BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME. The principle of EZER-WARRIORS (co-warriors) is crucial. Most people make a list that is entirely egocentric. God’s pushed me to realize that just because someone is good, does not make them good enough for ME. That...
me: let's go here
greg: it has no sunlight
me: what are you, a plant?
greg: what are you, a vampire?
11. A recent photo of you
*NOTE* - I don’t have any digital childhood/baby pics of me sorry! 11. A recent photo of you: At the top of the Duke Chapel! I’ve never done the full Chapel climb before so the Senior Chapel Climb was my first! Of course it’s a Randolph-Giles Small Group (06-07) reunion.
9. A photo you took
I took this during Fall Break 08 — I went to visit my long-time friend BeQa Johnson at UVA. She gave me a tour of the place. This is the famous Rotunda. I picked this one because it represents hope to me. It is the most current way of God fulfilling His promise to me that He is good to me, and that I have something to hope for and enjoy, which is not always easy for me to believe....

This is a difficult one. There are two/three-dozen or so photos that instantly/regrettably come to mind. They could fit in either category. Posting as “makes you happy” would be a sure sign of how little I’ve progressed. Posting as “makes you sad” would also be a sure sign of how little I’ve progressed, but it would still be better sort of since it’d mean...

5. Favorite Quote & 6. Favorite Color
Favorite Quote: Philippians 2:5-11 I guess… 5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and...
3. Favorite Television Program & 4. Favorite Movie
I messed up apparently — #2 is movie & #4 is book so since I already posted #2 as the book, I’m switching #4 to be the movie. Here goes! 3. Favorite TV program: Smallville — Yes I know it’s trashy and emotionally-predictable but when it first came out, I was a sucker for it. Also, Kristin Kreuk is pretty stunning. I actually like the peculiar co-habitation of good...
1. Favorite Song & 2. Favorite Book
Favorite song… Lifehouse’s “Everything” from their first (and best) album, No Name Face. The YouTube of it is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjDojEOiMcE It’s very powerful musically and lyrically and has spoken to me throughout my time as not-a-child-in-Sunday-school-anymore Christian. The meaning of the song as someone seeking God fully — “I want...

How Ace found this I don’t know — maybe it was on TV and she found it on the website. In any case, all now stand corrected (since people think it’s 50:50). I actually usually go 66% tea and 33% lemonade when I make them myself but that’s more because I measure out badly haha.

Dilemma: When to rest, when to go.
Seems like I wasn’t thinking very well when I started to schedule things aggressively this week. I have a habit of remembering that other stuff I need to do needs to be done. I have a habit of forgetting that just because I have the time-schedule slot open for a ministry thing or meeting or something, doesn’t mean I have the mental space or opportunity-cost-space/time/energy to spend...
