wednesday catch-up.

If you can't make a Monday Rundown, at least make it in time for a Wednesday Catch-up.

Looking back, it is fairly evident that certain periods of life can be defined as a season: of joy, of waiting, of change. Well, the past 6 months or so have been all of those. The seasons of joy and change are continuing, which is great -- I would not want it any other way. But now, the season of waiting is over. As of Sunday morning, I have a new job at a great church with people I really respect, and I am excited to be working with them.

The rubber has been hitting the road this week here at Gayton, and I'm excited about what lies ahead. My office is "blah" right now with a lot of bare space on the walls. I'm sure it will be full pretty soon.

And most importantly, I am now (again) legitimately rvaYM



do you know.

Driver's ed is one of those rights of passage -- you're glad to be done, but you'd never in your life wish to repeat it. Well, give it another go. Five quizzes to test your knowledge of road and highway signs. How did you do?

I missed 1 question in Quiz 2 and 1 question in Quiz 5. Must have been a slow Friday...


monday, monday, monday.

Well, it's Tuesday. But Monday was a holiday, so Tuesday is the Monday.

the weekend that was: A long drive to Charlotte, obnoxious phone calls, a tough Hokie loss, a night in Wilmington and a tour of EUE/Screen Gem Studio on Sunday.

where i am at the moment: rVA, but just until Friday. Again.

on my to-do list this week: Will I find a job this week? I can only hope so. Hopefully I'll be reading and writing some this week. This would be the fun reading and writing, since classes start next week.

procrastinating about: And I still can't get motivated too much to read or write.

books i’m in the midst of: Eat This Book (Eugene Peterson), Thunderstruck (Erik Larson) and A Comedian's Guide to Theology (Thor Ramsey).

music that seemed to catch my attention this past week: Kind of the opposite. We made nearly the entire drive from Wilmington back to RIC without the radio or iPods. It was kind of nice.

next trip: After last weekend's abysmal ending to the Hokies/ECU game, I can only hope they step it up for Furman this weekend. We'll be spending the weekend in Roanoke, which will be our first visit since the wedding. Hard to believe. And the Spiders, coming off a solid win at Elon last week, moved up to #3 in the nation heading into Saturday's matchup at UVA.

how i’m feeling about this week: Eh. Starting the week with two flat tires is never good. The anticipation of school, albeit something to add to my calendar, is kind of depressing. And the lack of job is wearing thin.
