Coming up Short

So, The HFUMC MethAddicts (our basketball team) Faced off against the Long Hollow Peace today in the season opener. We came a little unprepared. First off we didnt even bring a ball to warm up with. And second we underestimated how big they would be. They were all about 5'9. Our shortest guy is 5'2.
The game started and it quickly went downhill from there. We got as close as 5 points but that was for only about a minute. We did play really hard though but shots, passes, and the refs just wern't on our side today. The final score was a very close 70 something to 38. I kind of stopped counting after they hit 50. How come all the Baptists can play basketball?

Im Legal!

About two months ago some guys at the church thought it would be a good idea to try out a church basketball team. We would face mostly other churches and a few teams that assembled. About 10 of us took the offer and decided to get a team together. Our first game is Saturday. We go up against the Long Hollow Baptist Peace. We are gonna show those Baptist who is the best, LOL! Everyone had to get a permission slip form signed by your parents and the pastor. Apparently, having your form signed by Ben Alexander is like having it signed by God, according to Coach Pavlik. Basketball has kind of been a way to let go and have some fun. Everything else in my life is so hectic between school, music, and other stuff.
-Our final phase of the Reimange the Youth Lounge is coming along nicely at church. We have a rough budget and plan to present the final one in about 2 weeks. I am incharge of the electrical equiptment and have a decent budget, I made everything fit in. The theme is industrial gothic cathedral. There will be a "media bar" complete with 40" flat screen. The media bar is the main focus as of right now. It's going to be great when it is finished.

Wow... What a Week

-So this week has been the most awkward week to say the least. A car caught on fire, Elections, gun threats at school and an amazing retreat at chruch.
-On Monday at school as I pulled into the parking lot I saw a big cloud of black smoke which I didn't think much about until I pulled around the corner. A white Mercury was sitting in the back parking lot ablaze. I caught the whole thing on video. I will post it soon.
-On Tuesday we were out of school and I helped some friends with a video project. This was also when the Harold Ford Jr. and the Bob Corker hate adds stopped. To not see them every 5 min is fine by me.
-On Thursday I arrived to school to see police cars everywhere! When I walked into school everyone was talking about guns and threats and what not. Everyone was like "We're all gonna die!" Turns out there were no guns,threats, or anything of that nature. It made so much news though.
-On Friday Hendersonville made there way over to Hunters Lane for a second time only to fall short again. Losing again 14-7. Which kicked us out of the playoffs. I Left for Paris Landing for a church retreat.
-Saturday and Sunday I spent enjoying the great scenery of Paris Landing which was much needed. I came back stress free and closer in my faith journey.

The Rumors are True...

What you have been hearing around the halls at HHS is true. Brittney and I are together! We have been for about 2 weeks now. Yes this is the same Brittney from middle school. Glad I cleared that up.
-Anyway, in other news Hendersonville beat Franklin in our first playoff game tonight. 17-14. We go on to play Hunter's Lane away next week. In a way I am riding the fence on this because I am happy for the football team but being in the marching band we still have to preform so its a hi/low type of thing.
-Brittney had surgery today on her knee because she tore her ACL in cheerleading practice about two weeks ago. So please pray for her to have a speedy recovery.
-I don't really have any other news I don't think. Blogging will become regular again.
