What a week it’s been!
The Holy Cross Summer Conference: Saturday to Sunday.. I don’t know if I mentioned this in my previous entry, but if not, here it is: I met someone there that I have been talking to online for a long time. Jill. She’s very cool, as I mentioned. I also met Jen, Will, Meryl, and many other faces that I’m so bad with names that I either don’t know their name, or never learned it. Props to all of you, though, as in less than 48 hours you have shown your quality. I stayed up until 3am Saturday night talking to Jill, and she stayed up til 7 because she had to monitor the halls incase anyone needed anything.
Grand Haven: Monday. After working on ProCPR, I went to Grand Haven with Julie and Scott, and met up with Tyler, Mike, Maria, Lindsey and Addison. That was cool too. Just sat and talked and then went to Applebee’s.
Rick’s house on Tuesday, working on the business. We’re getting so close to launching this thing, I can feel it. The design is really starting to come together nicely, and I’m starting to be happy with it for the first time since I initially designed it nearly a year ago. It’s far above version 1 of the site design that I made. Paula, Jeannette, Sarah, Nick and Pat showed up while we were working on it. We watched some hilarious videos on http://www.tallyhall.com
Which brings us to today’s adventures: they haven’t yet begun.
The rest of the week is as follows:
Tonight: Millennium Park: Hilarity ensues
Thursday: Antioch GR.. St. Thomas has Theology on Tap at 7:30 with Dr. Dave DenBraber speaking, and I think it’d be cool to go to that, but we’ll see.
Friday: A Night of Worship at the Kreslin’s followed by possible campout!
Saturday: Rachel Z’s open house followed by Guy’s Night
Sunday: Antioch in Muskegon
I just got home from South Bend / Muskegon Antioch. I went to a Summer Conference at Holy Cross College. It was a very fun time. I met some awesome people, and especially one person that I had only met through Xanga, and I’m pleased to say that she is in every way as cool in person as she is online. Cooler even. We stayed up til 3am (4am GR time) talking about many things. Her name is Jill, and I must say, wow, talk about a fun person to hang around. I hope to get the opportunity and privelage to hang out with her again sometime in the near future. I could go on for a while about her, and not just her, but many of the people that I met last weekend. I am just very very tired.
Saw Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban on Friday morning at 12:01am. It was really good. I wasn’t really surprised by that, I thought it would be. I saw it with a great group of people.
Hit the beach yesterday. ROCK!
Got BangTheBucket.com Window Clings! Need a car for mine.
Lots of people showed up, and we ate lots of burgers, played some Ultimate Frisbee, and Threw around a football, a frisbee, and a volleyball, all simultaneously.
Laura Neiser showed up. Haven’t seen her since 2003. She was at my table on the fall Antioch Muskegon retreat. Such an awesome person. Hope she’s on team on a future retreat. She has a way with words that can put things in perspective, and make things work. She’s one of the most memorable candidates I’ve had at my table. So reserved, yet so kind, and a strong person, but very faithful. If she’s reading this, she’s probably got tears in her eyes..that’s cool, she’s like that, which is awesome. She sees the beauty in things.
