2009 is over? well, 2010 it is!

So today is the last day of 2009. Wow. This year was..... well, as of right now i'm not sure what this year was. I guess it was pretty excellent. It was a year of learning, thats for sure. Learning how to relate to middle schoolers, learning how to be a role model for kids, learning how to share Jesus with students, learning how to lead worship for students, learning how to be flexible with students, learning how to change plans. I guess overall this was a year of change.

At the start of 2009, i had my future almost planned out. I was going to finish high school and go to Barclay college in Haviland, Kansas. That was the plan, but halfway through this year, plans changed. This year i was a leader for middle school ministry, and it became my life. I love kids, and i love hanging out with them. As of right now, i think that i want to go into Youth Ministry. Scratch that, i KNOW that i want to go into Youth Ministry. I have no clue what that looks like, but i guess i'll figure that out later!

New Years Resolution?
So i haven't ever done new years resolutions, but i guess since it's a year of change......

  • Get a good camera
  • Get a job
  • Think about college.
Yeah, i know, it's not much of a list, but that's really all i can think of for resolutions.
Here's to 2010!!

thoughts on life, high school, and whatever else i think of

Its been a while since i've posted. Sorry about that, life's gotten pretty hectic in the past few weeks. Lots of stuff going on, lots of things happened, but its been fun. Extremely tiring, but fun nonetheless.

First of all, School started to beat me down pretty hard. My grades started to slip, and for the first time in my entire High School career, I had the drive to actually do something about it. I put in effort in school the last few weeks. This hasn't happened since probably 7th grade. weird.

Christmas Spectacular. Enough Said.
Just kidding. Yes, the annual 4C's Christmas Spectacular is This Sunday, and i've been preparing for it pretty much nonstop this month and the better part of November. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and Christmas Spectacular is definitely a highlight of the year. This year i'm in three major acts, and I'm super stoked about it. It's going to be super funny. You may laugh, you may cry, you may even wanna give me money :) i doubt it though.
This Sunday, December 13th. 7:00 PM. @4C's, Be there!

Here are my last thoughts of this blog:
A few of my friends have shown me their essays on how to keep guys away and how to stay single. These essays were written for school, and have made me think quite a bit. The main point of them was that girls don't need guys, and they especially don't want guys that treat them badly. Time and time again i find myself talking with my friends of the opposite gender, telling them that guys are awful. And we are. Most guys aren't worth anything, but there are a few good guys left out there. I want to be one of them, i try again and again to be the kind of guy that a girl would want to be with. Not one of the "popular" guys, not one of the "playa's" or anything like that. I just want to be the kind of guy that a girl can see herself with. maybe even for a long time. I have yet to find this girl, and who knows, i may never find her, but for now, i strive to be a guy that girls can look at as the type of guy that they want to be with. don't call me a role model, because i'm only human and i fail, hard sometimes, but i try, and thats the best i can give.
