A Long Day

Today I am getting ready to start my journey back home we around the Dallas area and should return around 10 tonight. I have had a blast and it is really nice to be able to get away from everything and take a break. I got a ton of great pictures and a few souvenirs. San Antonio is a really cool and interesting city, I would like to go back sometime. I even met some new people while there. Today will be a long bus ride and therefore a slow day. Well I hope everyone had a fun time while I was away and hope I get back safe, see you guys soon.

A Ways From Home

Right now I am sitting in a Hampton Inn in Mesquite Tx. I am with a group of kids from school and we are on our way to San Antonio. We left Hendersonville around 7:30am and got here around 9:30pm. The bus ride got a little old and ive got 4 more hours. The Blogger server has been down and I have not been able to write in a while I will try to write when im in San Antonio.

Shouts From the Band Room

Funny Title I know! But a few weeks ago I found out that the band director was goning to split the band im going to be in next year into two groups. a wind ensemble and symphonic band. the Wind ensemble is the better band. So I auditioned and was kind of nervous that i might make second band. well i didnt I made first band and on top of that i was the only one of that intrument that he took. Its wierd cause i have only been playing this one for under a year and now Im the best at Hendersonville High. I can't wait until next year.

Your Not Always Right!

Everyone knows someone that thinks that there way is the best way and that they are always right. When you try to tell them other wise they block you out and it is so frustrating. That hold you back and seems like things will never change. There is this guy in my class and he holds the whole class back, I just wish that he would give other ideas a chance.

Rough Day at Concert Festival

Well I went to Concert Festival with the HHS Concert Band today and we did alright. we got a 2 in our prepared peace and a 1 in sightreading. I was really hoping for 1's across the board because last year hawkins got all ones (my middle school) and its just a dissapointment. I havent really had anything to blog about besides that.

We are finally starting a praise band something that has been talked about for a while now and im really excited. Our first time we meet will be on sunday and I cant wait to start this great thing. It is gonna be so much fun for us all.

Might not be much blogging till then.

A Wednesday Night Service

So tonight I went to the Wednesday Night service at church. I had never been before and tonight I started to go for not all the right reasons. One of my friends was playing tonight and I was going to see her. When the service began I was asked to read a scripture at the end of the service, even though no one thinks this, reading infront of people is almnost a fear for me. So we sang a few songs and then Mrs. Thomas gave us her testomony, her lifestory. I learned a few things about her. The end of the service came and i read my 2 verse scripture which was actually 3 cause i wasnt paying attenion. Then we had communion and Lynn asked someone if they would serve communion, she looked over at us youth so Matthew E. and I stood up and walked up. I was so surprised at myself, I had never thought that I would serve communion to a congragation at my church. I think that was Gods way of telling me something, I dont really know what, but i know it was something. In a way, I almost felt unworthy. God has mysterious ways!

The undependable myspace

These past few months have been a little funky on myspace. Today, when i tryed to log in i get this stupid "we are working on the system" message and this has happened more than once, it seems that Myspace is going through some server issues.

When something that you are used to having goes away for a while you realize how much you use it or depend on it, in this case Myspace. We all have things that we value. For teenagers these days its myspace. alls i have to say is Tom better get this whole server thing straight, even though I dont think tom owns it anymore.

Empty Week

This week has been pretty empty and pointless for blogging. I have tried to think of something but nothing really comes to mind. This morining I worked at the Child Care Ministeries Workshop at church to raise money for choir tour. I spent some time talking to a friend about some things and the Lay Witnees Mission came up. We were talking and this sounds like something that will be great for our church and community. We also talked about the soon to be creation of a priase band. Most peoples concern is that people might not take it seriously enough to keep on. I hope that it will all turn out great and everyone will enjoy it. I am hoping that more youth are starting to read gavin and my blogs. Maybe some of you will start your own.
I guess that is all for me today. I hope next week is more eventful.

If we never went over the speed limit

I was surfing the web the other day and I ran over this video that asked what happened if no one ever speed. Some college students answered it by taking five cars and going on the highway. They each got in a lane and went the same speed, 55 miles an hour. pretty soon everyone was following behind like ducks in a pond except for a few that went off the road to pass. so if no one ever sped then would we be safer? what if everyone was christian and followed all the rules, would the world be a better place?
