Church Shopping

I have been church shopping since last October...Someone asked me why I hadn't found a church yet and I decided to blog it just to get others input etc. This list jsut reflects sentimental reasons and doesn't even begin to touch the issue of proper theology.

1)Pretty much every church I've walked into, waited around in the lobby for a bit(greater than 10 minutes), sat down, and walked out without one person other than the occasional door greater talking to me. The church is suppose to be a fellowship of believers and I have not sensed said fellowship in quite some time.

2)Looking around I see almost NO ONE my age. I want to be able to fellowship with people my age in a meaningful way. Its quite disappointing to see no one my age there.

3)The feeling of wasting my sunday morning. Honestly when i go to a church i hope it to be a good one. I've done research, visited the website, and deemed it a possibility(almost like trying to date ^.^) When that church doesn't live up to my expectations I frankly get even more depressed. No bueno

I am soo soo so excited. Tomorrow is the release of Young Man Follow by Future of Forestry. But that's not all. Also, being released is Cold Hard Want by House of Heroes. These bands are pure awesomesauce and have their own styles.

The End is not the End by House of Heroes is possible the greatest CD ever and the Travel EP's from Future of Forestry are a rich an elegant parade of awesomeness for your ears. Your ears will love you for listening to these two bands.

Planning to ask a girl out? Slip her a note that says the following:

Want to go on a date? Yes = Smile. No = back flip.

it works every time...unless you ask a gymnast...never ask a gymnast.

Things you Learn

Things you learn randomly: Duck brand duct tape is, in fact, not used for air ducts, but rather a very competitive sport in the Netherlands wherein the goal is to capture and subdue, with the tape, a wild duck. This is accomplished by running with tape and a long pole towards a duck. When the duck starts to fly, one simply pole-vaults into the air and must capture and tape the duck's legs and beak before landing.

  • I went blackberry picking recently and made some delicious jam. 
  • I recently got a chance to play walmart tag. You don't know what walmart tag is? Only one of the greatest games ever. Two people start off with an item(say a candy bar) and have to place it in a different section of walmart whilst picking up another item from that section(so place candy bar in toy section and pick up GI Joe figurine). You continue this until you have switched ten items. Once you retrieve the last item you return back to the starting point and give your last item to your opponent. First person to place all items back in their correct position and get back to the candy bar stand wins! Obstacles include hurdling small children, pesky employees who place items back in their original position, and security guards who think you look really suspicious. Needless to say, I won.
