And it Wained… (3x)

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Boy it’s wet. It’s so wet, that it’s early afternoon here at camp, and I have nothing to do. We got all the inside stuff done, and all that’s left to do is… out there. We didn’t quit raking until hypothermia became a real possibility. I think we just want to be done with leaves, […]

Life comes at you fast

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Right now, my life is going along splendidly! I have a Fiance who loves me, whom I will marry in 94 days, my car and tooth are fixed for a fraction of what I thought it would cost, I have a good credit score, I actually worked again yesterday to put some more money in […]

Seasons of Change

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

If one were to follow my posts back to the beginning of this blog, they would obviously find a lot that has changed over the (nearly) 2 years of its existence. There are changes in my life (school, work, love…), changes in my attitude… even my writing style has changed. The frequency of my posts […]

The Day After…

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

Ok, so very few of you are going to care, but I just wrote a counter script from scratch, and I’m pretty proud of it. In my sidebar, from now until probably the end of my honeymoon (or later), there is some text that says “I’m getting married the day after the day after the….. […]

June 2 and the Wedding Blog

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

I just hopped on to let you all know that we are planning the wedding for June 2, 2007. Then I got to thinking… I don’t want this to turn into a wedding blog, where all I talk about is what I’m doing to get ready for the wedding. So as hard as it may […]

And Then She Said…

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

So yesterday I went on a date with Rachel. We had an adventure, just going wherever our little hearts desired. That’s when I hit her with the suprise… I took her to a waterfowl observation tower that we found on our first date. We had both forgotten where it was, and she wanted to go […]


Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

I arrived here at Camp Ao-Wa-Kiya at about 8:30 Sunday morning. It was quite a horrendous drive, but I made it. Among my lessons were “How to take a shower at a truck stop,” “Why we don’t bother looking for hotel rooms at 3am on Memorial Day weekend,” and “what happens at toll booths when […]


Sunday, May 7th, 2006

I talked to her on the phone tonight. If you want to call it that. We didn’t say much. I was preoccupied. It’s not that I would rather be playing a game than talking to her… it’s that I would have two annoyed people to deal with if I just stopped playing in the middle. […]

Counting Down

Saturday, March 11th, 2006

Yes, I have a countdown timer set for the time that Rachel’s plane lands in Denver. Yes, I look at it… often. Yes, it’s because I’m in love. Yes, I know you think it’s pathetic. No, I really don’t care. 20 days, 16 hours, 53 minutes and 12 seconds…


Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

So I’m sitting at my computer waiting for my mom to be done on the phone so I can call Rachel back. I really miss her. I haven’t talked to her in like 10 minutes and I’m starting to get anxious. Dad asked me today if I thought she was the one. “So far, so […]
