i won’t even go there. there are posts and comments to read elsewhere on the matter. tonight after work i plan on listening to both sides for myself… but something tells me my mind’s already made up as to who is distorting what.

i personally like the sound of this. so many people who claim Christianity seem afraid to me. But the irony is, the people who want you to live separate from culture are the same ones who protest when you start to care for the earth, when you decide to adopt a baby that has a different ethnicity than yourself. when you are okay with sharing your money with other people. when you speak of peace and love instead of war and torture. when you opt out of sunday morning activities in favor of friday nights over drinks with friends who know your journey in ways no “community group” could… when you actually do try to live differently from the world by trying your hardest to love the world because you believe that’s what God had in mind.
this is what being anchored to the world looks like to me. this is a version of Christianity that makes sense to me.
sorry for the lack of updates.
not that there isn’t much to update on. [there is] there just has not been much time i’ve felt like devoting to such a thing. [that sounds bad] tonight i find myself alone at my apartment. [for the first time in many days] too tired to cook [there are no groceries] so i ordered a vegan pizza from mellow mushroom that i am about to go pick up. too tired to clean [all my clothes are on the floor] so i will save that for the weekend.
too tired. but i wouldn’t change any of it.
i have 5 bug bites on my right arm that are swollen and a little painful/itchy and absolutely annoying. i have no idea what bit me or why i have had such a reaction but its driving me nuts. i also am having a rare experience of feeling the effects of caffeine. being jittery and anxious coupled with wanting to rip my arm off is making it quite difficult to sit at my desk today.
and, to top it off, somehow i sliced my toe open last night and i am supposed to run a 5k on saturday. today its wrapped in lots of guaze and i am crossing my fingers it will heal.
thats all. i hope. 🙂

coldplay’s viva la vida is a-mazing. honest. its streaming for free at the moment. can’t wait to buy it.
i’ve started my new job. i don’t want to get into it, but let’s say that i’ve begun with mixed emotions. however, i think its all going to be okay.
highlights of the first official day:
friday’s are extremely lax. i am okay with this.
i was 15 minutes late and no one cared.
i don’t really have to dress up.
i can actually enjoy a cup of coffee.
today’s objective: a baby shower we are hosting for a program
i am sure soon i will have lots to do, but its nice to begin slowly. i think this type of job structure is perfect for me and i am excited to prove to them i was worth hiring. okay. more to come.
