moving day...

ok so I'm kinda getting things figured out here and I've decided that since I've really lost all umph to keep things going here I'm moving... blogger's just not doing it for me and I'm having trouble finding the time and whatnot to adequately keep this going... so I'm moving to www.himynameisjaked.wordpress.com. I hope to see you there as I give notes from the battle ground...

cue the dramatic music?

It's been a really long time since i've really wrote anything here of real meaning. i've gotten to post some pictures and what not but as far as substance... not so much. so here's my feeble efforts of being (somewhat) serious in what's been going on.

well i'm about half-way through the time i have to raise support for my year at montana state. as it stands right now i'm at 15%. not exactly where i'm supposed to be at this point but hey if God can part seas, keep the sun from setting, and providing food through birds this is seriously nothing. despite that it's been really tough to preserver with a real lack of momentum. and it's not just support stuff that's been rough. in the last two weeks i've had the privilege to destroy both my cell phone and ipod as well as came close to losing my car. in the saying that the Lord givith and taketh away, he's really been in the taketh away mood lately. so that's really been my prayer lately, that God would start to give this process some serious momentum.

recently, (last night) thanks to a man who's been a phenomenal encouragement to me gave me a link to a talk by dr. david jeremiah entitled "when you are in a hurry and God isn't." one of the things that really stood out to me is when he talked about patience being the same thing as endurance.

"no matter what kind of shape you are in if you push yourself to the limit you will come to the place where you hit 'the wall.' that means you come to the place where your mind and your body begin to argue with one another. your mind says 'i can't do this anymore!' and your body starts to agree. but because you are determined you just keep putting one foot infront of the other until you come to the point where you break through the wall. and you get a new burst of energy and you get what they call the 'second wind' and with the second wind you get a new burst of energy even greater then you had at the beginning..."

i feel like this is the part of the story where the plot is supposed to really take a turn. where things start going right for our hero... where the second wind really kicks in. because Lord knows i've hit the wall. i've hit the wall, backed up and ran into it even harder only to be knocked on my butt again. so here i am back in billings hoping and praying for God to show up in this last month and a half. i've got 85% to go and not alot of phone numbers to call. so please be in prayer. thanks and hopefully i'll be able to do this a little more often and so they won't be so long. and in everything let God's will be done.

x-men origins:wolverine

saw this opening night but i've been so busy that i haven't had any time to put it together. also saw star trek a couple nights ago, review on the way along with a few other's i've seen in the last couple weeks/months. oh and don't get me wrong, this movie was somewhat entertaining but i'm a comic book nerd, i've got expectations

the day the earth stood still

i saw the original way back in high school and the remake a couple weeks ago. had to re-watch the original to remember why someone would want to re-make it. my advice... i'll let the review speak for itself.

a day in photos

ok so i thought i would try something different that as far as i can think of nobody, at least nobody i know has done. every hour, on the hour, (or as close as i could get) i took a picture of what i was doing, or something around me. i figure that if a picture is worth a thousand words than a couple pics might show a day in my life a little better. so without further ado here’s my day.


7:00am
aww, walmart in the morning, nobody around, just me and 15 other empty registers.


8:00am
got bored so i stocked the gum’s in my isle and made sure they all lined up perfectly. a good job for someone who’s ocd.

9:00am
i thought this was kinda funny… really nothing about walmart really springs great ideas… i mean this photo entry was thought up while there so you know. ps happy cinco de mayo.

10:00am
got moved between the door and the deli, pretty much torture because i could see how nice and sunny it was outside and got to smell everyone’s lunch while i waited for my own.


11:00am
it looks like these kids are giving their mom a wet willie. creepy. also don’t forget to get mom a card. all the good ones are probably gone but hey at least you tried right?

12:00pm
don’t even think of stealing stuff or ol’ silvia will stomp on your face with her size 13 sneakers. not really sure why she wears such large shoes but the fact of the matter is, you don’t question silvia.

1:00pm
i know i’m a geek, a nerd, a dork, but also more of a star wars guy, but one things for sure, i’m really looking forward to seeing star trek this weekend.


2:00pm
so yeah this is a fan, all the isles have them, that’s about it. not much going on… so close to being done.


3:00pm
clocking out for the day, now it’s time to head to make some support calls, and by sum, i mean a couple hours wort, out of the fire, into the frying pan.


4:00pm
bathroom break in between calls. for all the ladies out there, this is called a urinal, i know it’s sad, you’ll never get to use one.


5:00pm
grabbing a drink, support raising is hard work. thank goodness for free water.


6:00pm
in honor of whatever cinco de mayo is in honor of, nothing like some genuine mexican food to celebrate, something… also starting to rain.


7:00pm
the slam, @christownley talking about king david ‘acting a fool’ by dancing around in a priestly garment (=tighty whities). there’s really more to the story but i think you should just think about that for a while.

8:00pm
the aftermath of dancing/mosh pit after playing david chrowder’s undignified. fun to see them really get into it.


9:00pm
two of the coolest 7th graders you’ll probably never meet.


well that’s it, that was pretty much my day. it was fun. the end.
