The Title of My Post is Called...

This week is spring break. I have worked three of the five days, which is what I need to do. I have a paper I should be working on, as well as Greek. But, I really just need to clean and straighten my room up. I like breaks, I really do.

Blue Like Mamma Cass

Today I heard Mr. Donald Miller speak. It was great. My buddy Matt and I drove the ninety miles west to Baton Rouge to hear Don and it was a very cool experience. I got to meet him afterward and talk for a few. He even signed my book. Yay. Donald Miller talked a lot about stories and how everyone ought to live within one. It can either be boring or adventurous but it's yours, and you should do something great with it.

i love to hate myself sometimes

pretensious, self-indulgent attitudes should be outlawed.

or, if it would make you feel better, insert a comment and guess what i was thinking.

If you're around me for long enough, I'll probably mention The Beatles. Most of the time I relegate myself to simple banter or trivia about the group, and I desperately try to avoid using the title 'The Greatest Band of All Time' in general conversation. (Although it is an accurate statement and if you want to debate me, bring it on; I will kill you with my knowledge!) So, previous rhetoric aside, I am interested in learning more about the individuals that comprise the Fab Four. An interesting article popped up on Christianity Today’s website a couple months back that I was impressed with. The article, entitled "John Lennon's Born-Again Phase," is an interesting read for those who are curious about studying in the area of said person(s), spirituality, or even Christianity. A Lennon quote for you to salivate on (then click the quote to read the entire article):

"The point is this, I want happiness. I don't want to keep on with drugs. Paul told me once, 'You made fun of me for taking drugs, but you will regret it in the end.' Explain to me what Christianity can do for me. Is it phony? Can He love me? I want out of hell."

Would You Listen To Yourself

Please don't keep apologizing
For the things you've done wrong
Ask for forgiveness once
Then just move on

It's not because I was mad
Or the fact that I got hurt
It's just that I want to get my life together
And not keep having my face rubbed in the dirt

Who was wrong that night
Pointing fingers to figure out
The right position to have
Replacing security with doubt

Expectations are hard to please
When you only live for yourself
Quit blaming your problems on me
I no longer have concerns for your health

You Shall Not Make For Yourself An Idol

Is anyone tired of American Idol already? This year is not interesting at all. Last year, and the season prior (four), I hardly missed an episode. Now, I don't really care. I've already missed so many episodes I'm not really sure who's still around and who's gone. Somebody should sing that Gym Class Heroes' song "Cupid's Chokehold. (I concede Sarah, it's addictive.) Their version sort of rips off the melody and chorus of Supertramp's "Breakfast In America" but without completely covering the song. GCH changes the lyrics, but the chorus and melody are pretty much the same. Oh well. That's my idol post for this season. Next year I'm watching a different show.
