oh well. so today in the bible study class we had a speaker from a church from the more fortunate part of the city. he spoke of hardship and how we can overcome them, how we should all be kind to one another. he preached of tolerance, and acceptance. i honestly wish there were more preachers like him. i've offically been introduced into the The General Epistle of James, it's very relevant as of now.
i've just looked through some of the vacation photos and video documents. i just really love the the desert areas, rolling plains, the vast expanses of forest that i saw. many photos, many video documents. if only i could do it all over again, with the exception of the "First day" failure. if only, if only.
i realize that oasis is getting more attention these days, it's really great. now i see there are alot more users on here, and just like in the "Oasis celebrates it's 15th year!" article the part about this place becoming a "full-blown social network" i think it's going to happen. little by little, new user by new user. i love this place and those who keep it going.
ok go to youtube and go to whatever video link, or your favorite, does not matter. pause the video at 0:00 and hold down the left arrow key then while holding the left arrow key down hit the up arrow key and you will have a pleasent surprise. please send comments if this works.
i want to go on a pilgramige to Jerusalem. i've been feeling inclined to see The Holy Lands. and it might make a good vaction spot... if there wasn't a situation going on there.
i can't stop listening to the "I know a girl" single by: All About Chad. it's so cute, the whole single just has three songs; 1. I know a girl, 2. You're too popular, 3. You are the woman. the one little record from 1995 has stood the test of time and ended up in my collection of music.
i had a relaxing day. i just decided to hang out at the house all day, doing some research (theology mainly), i can just go on about how i did nothing and relaxed all day, but i'd really rather not.
it's funny the amount of time i could waste on my Android phone. it's really ridculous but it has to be one of the best invetions ever (for me, in my honest opinion). a phone that's a music player, video viewer, camera, video camera, internet capable device, and fun device. it's so neat.
dream in the dream, sleep in the sleep,
wake in the bed you once dreamt the dream.
truly the troubador, ever the evador,
only in song, could salvation be long,
in the midst of night, there is no fight,
where is the moon? the morn is to be soon,
whereas the sunshine is bright, the day is right,
the pleasent day, shine the sun's rays,
clouds give way to rain, there is no strain,
no lament leaked from the firmament,
grace from the heavens, rains upon,
washing the earth, making it perk,
soon after to the delight, the moon resumes it's twilight.
obtain fantasy, tis not blasphemy.
after my temporary insanity, i've come to the conclusion that i acted very out of character and even i am surprised that i wrote and did the things i did. now that this is out of the way...
i'm reading a little bit of The Book of Mormon alongside the Holy Bible, seems very interesting. the book is to well put together it seems, the pages before the preface say that there were eight witnesses to The Plates of Nephi. this book is very, very interesting so far.
now i'm actually considering leaving here to escape this popularity contest. i feel like shit, fuck this. maybe i'll revive my old livejournal account. i'm junking my server project as "the thing that should have never been" (it was an abomination under The Lord [lol]). i can't save myself from the Folk Music of Beck. I'm remembering who I am, I AM A FOLK SINGER, I AM SELF RELIANT, I AM INFINITY, I DON'T NEED THIS, I DON'T NEED ANYTHING BUT MY FOLK GUITAR AND HARMONICAS.
i've recently aquired a very interesting book. this book is the base for a movement. it is The Book of Mormon. you may wonder "why does he own that?", well i went to the thrift store looking for a copy of The Torah but instead found this little "gem".
i got lazy. website is going to be up by sunday, sorry everyone. it's just the book reviews page, too much homework and other things are infringing upon my work. i'm so introverted lol. i have done so much over the past month with my servernotebook, seriously modded, i love it!
a funny thought popped in my head just now. what if i played Spanish Vihuela? lol! too many complex chord positions, plus no gears to tune, just wooden pegs like a lute. i want to play Baroque Lute. then again i need to commit myself to tuning 24 strings.
back to school. it's not so bad, finally going to graduate in just a few months and leave all my enemies behind (enemies aren't so bad though, however they are rather bitchy, LOL!). i miss my Junior Year though, had a lot of fun, not a whole lot of bad things happened. i was reflecting yesterday and saw that i made that year the best of my high school career thus far, but this new year i made a resolution... to make Senior Year top Junior Year. i think i can do it, i'm feeling very sure of this.
so i'm making my own webpage and it's going to be hosted on my old notebook (converted it into a server). it's my first webpage and unfortunately i can only put up an MHTML webpage, and to make a long story short it will be plain and simple webpage similar to the webpages in the early days of the World Wide Web. the server will be hosted privately under password protection, since i'm not ready to have it go public it's a test run so to say. so no one be surprised when i ask you to test run my webpage, and do whatever you can to see if you can find dead links, errors, Et Cetera.
today i was think to myself, "i don't fit in anywhere". and so i then thought "fuck it, i'm just a hybrid in that way". now even though i don't fit in anywhere especially here, i'm actually not having any apathy, or any negative outlook. i've decided to stop trying to fit in, it's too hard and complex. i have no idea how others manage to do it, probably my slight "ld" disposition.
i know skill is important to have, especially in this life. for example, i if wanted to be a musician i would have to lead a meager life under constant debt because i can't read musical notation to save my life. how does it apply? well, to be held in high regard you must absolutely prove that you have mastered and dominated a necessary part of being a musician.
