Intro Entry

   I have been keeping a blog since I was 16. My cousin LeAnna talked me into it. I used to mock her for having a blog. I shortly followed suit. Though at the time we called them online journals or diaries. Blog. Fancy new fangled word. Either way, when it comes to blogging I will go for brief periods of frequent updates and longer periods of infrequent updates. I have avoided the blogger world, having once attempted years ago in a fairly unspectacular way. 

   My blogging heart has belonged to LiveJournal since March 5th, 2002. That is quite the relationship. 8 years next month. Though when I switched the LiveJournal from OpenDiary (having been with them since I was 16; which was only 3 years) that transition felt like a huge infidelity. This switch is less difficult since most of the blogs I follow are now with Blogger. 

   I am hoping that for a least a somewhat lengthy period of time I will maintain semi-regular updates. We will see if that actually happens. Here's hoping. 

   For the moment here are some thoughts that have gone through my head in the past days:

  • Should I take up knitting? It is a good, productive way to pass time during meetings/movies/etc when my ADD would normally get the better of me. People think knitting is cool, I agree. I like toques and washcloths; both would be fun to make. 
  • I want to learn Mandarin. Paul & I want to teach ESL overseas once we have our teaching degrees. Our hearts lean towards China. 
  • I want to go Camping this summer with regular frequency. I have never done this before (camp often that is, not just camp). I love the idea of going away with Paul (either just us or us with friends) to some random place, putting down our tent and enjoy time). Hicks lake here we come!
  • I recently saw this question: "If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?" My gut instinct was YES. In this there would be no need to live in Faith. I would see up close, in person, the power of God. It would be easy to be godly if I had seen the certainty of Christ. At least I like to think it would be. But where is the faith in certainty? Where is the mystery in seeing? Is there something to be said for believing without seeing? Would there be something lost in the complete knowledge of truth? Would earth ever be good enough after Heaven? Could I actually come back and be content in my life here? Or would it merely seem like a dull shadow of what is to come?
This weekend Paul & I bought our bed. It is a King size. So exciting! We also created our registry at Home Outfitters. Fun times! I am so excited! Also today I went to my first tupperware party! I am officially an adult. I own a bed that costs more than my car, I have a wedding registry, and I am drooling over stackable tupperware. It is official.

I like your definition of being an adult.

LOL! Drooling over stackable tupperware!

I think that experiencing the truth could hardly detract from life. I mean, die, live in the afterlife a bit, come back: good times. ;-) Right? How could seeing/experiencing all that be negative? I wonder.

Have you read Through The Gates? That is basically what it is about. You should read it and tell me what you think.

mm, maybe that isn't the name of the book. I'll get back to you on that!

-Yay for knitting! I just started to crochet. Loving it!
-Hicks Lake is awesome! By far my fav campground
-I'm jealous of your kingsize.

Looking forward to your next post!
