Not Long

It doesn't take long for acquaintances to become friends. It just takes some sort of shared experience to seal the deal.

Take this afternoon for example. Maranatha gave Elia a new DJ'ing machine, so the three of us plus two other friends spent the afternoon banging on things, laughing, and having a great time 'making music'. I know have two new friends.

And... I learned that Norway is the land where dreams come true. Who knew?

My Self Righteous Rant

Allow me, for a moment, to rant about something that isn't new or original.

Adventists, by and large, are the most hypocritical group of people that I know. Myself included. True, many of the people I know and most that I know well are Adventist, and we are nauseatingly hypocritical. We are causing people to have a grossly distorted view of God because of how we act, what we are comfortable with, and who we exclude because we are too damn lazy to put the effort into getting to know them for who they are rather than what they aren't.

We should be ashamed of ourselves.

Life is not about surrounding yourself with what is comfortable and protecting yourself from what isn't. Life is for living. So stop protecting yourself and live! You know that people's perception of God is dependent on how we live our lives, so it's bigger than just you.

Get over yourself, and live life. Fully and abundantly.

Life life. Purposefully and with variety.

Live. Life.

New Post?!

Well I've nearly made it a year since writing on this blog, and to tell you the truth I'm not sure I have anything urgent to say right now. Maybe an overview will suffice for the mean time.

Since last writing, a lot has happened in my life. I have gone through four jobs, a long relationship, started a company, eaten hundreds of donuts, and moved to Hollywood. My days are spent talking to wedding planners, help in the production of a feature length film, learning about documentaries, and figuring out what exactly is up with life.

I mean really. What is up... life?

You're crazy.

I'm not sure I can keep up.

It is interesting though, and filled with great people and a loving God. I always hoped that life would be an adventure, but I could not have planned a trip like this if I would have wanted to.
