I sent this out to some of you earlier, but I thought I would go ahead and put it up here as well for those of you who I don’t have the email addresses for. This is my major update about what is going on in my life at this time.
Hey all, it has been awhile since I sent one of these out, but I
thought it was about time. I haven’t given an update in a long while
about what is going on with me and how my life has changed since the
last time you heard from me.
Quite a bit has changed in the last year or so. As of the
last time I sent out my update email, I was single, working at Personal
Computer Systems, and still driving the Exploder. Well, all of those
things have changed.
I have been dating a really sweet girl for the last 6 months
and things are going along great. We have a good time together and she
seems to get along with those of you who have met her. Her name is
Sarah and I went to High School with her, even though she is a few
years younger than me. She is in the AR department out at Denso so she
definitely has her hands full playing referee to the company’s many
I am no longer at Personal Computer Systems. I had been there
for almost 3 years and some things were changing that I didn’t care for
and the job just wasn’t going where I wanted it to go, so I had to
leave. I just started a new job at Information International Associates
as IT Support out there. I am doing System Administrator tasks, as well
as working on research and development projects for government
contracts. So don’t mess with me or I’ll have to go CIA on you. It
is a bit overwhelming, but I really feel that I am going to love it.
finally got rid of the Ford Explorer that I have been driving for the
last 7 years. It had to be retired in favor of a younger, newer model.
I got a new White Mitsubishi Galant that I am loving. But I have
noticed that it seems like everything gravitates toward the car. In the
Explorer I never had a problem with anything ever hitting it or ever
doing anything out of the ordinary that could damage the car. But with
this one, I have had multiple instances in the past month that have
made my heart stop because of the closeness of something messing up my
car. I don’t know, it may be that I just didn’t care if something hit
the old car and that is why I am noticing that stuff is closer to
hitting the new car.
I am leading worship on Thursday nights at First Baptist
Church of Maryville. We have been doing this since last August and it
is going pretty well. Although we haven’t really reached the audience
that we planned on marketing toward. The service is a
Post-Modern/Contemporary service that meets in the family life center
and is in some ways a departure from the standard service, while
keeping the familarity of church for those who are used to the standard
service. But like I said, we haven’t hit the audience we are going for
as of yet. We are trying to reach the Maryville College kids and have
had a few nibbles, but no one has really dove into the service yet in
the way that we wanted. We are still growing and learning as a group on
how to plan a service that doesn’t follow the conventions of a regular
service. If you are interested in coming, you can head over on Thursday
nights at 7:30 to the service and check us out. We have a good time and
there are some familiar faces there that you will know besides me. If
you want to check out the site for the service, just head over to myspace.com/maryvilleh2o .
also am doing a podcast with one of my buddies that is about movies and
entertainment. So if you want to check that out, you can head over to Featureconversations.com
and download an episode. A podcast is just an audio program, kind of
like talk radio that is about a certain subject or group of subjects.
So if you want to burn it to CD or put it on your MP3 player, go right
ahead. And I would love to hear your feedback on the subjects we talk
