Ok, so it's been forever since I've updated with an actual blog about life.

I am more or less fully moved into my new apartment (room)! My roommate has moved in and our room looks more homey each day, but out apartment is missing half of it's members so the living room and kitchen area look very sad and lonely. BUT we have another roommate coming today and she should be bringing some homey things. Apparently, like everything you could ever dream of needing for a kitchen. I broke down and bought some silverware at Target yesterday, so I could eat Raisin Bran this morning. Danielle, my roommate, called me an old man because I LOVE Raisin Bran.

The past couple days I've been working on the website for Interdistrict Youth Cabinet, a group that I'm in. We plan Roundtable every year, a SR. High Regional Youth Conference for the Church of the Brethren. Our current website is just...boring. I'm trying to use my internet/ web skills to create something new and exciting. I mean I've been making websites since I was 12. I grew up on the internet. Anyway, I ran into some trouble this morning and Dad is coming over to give me a hand before I head to my District Board meeting.

Today, I have a District Board meeting that will last the rest of the day. After out regular meeting we'll be going to another church to participate in a mock Bible Study. My denomination is having a discussion over the next year about homosexuality. So, we're doing a demonstration for all the leaders of the Bible Study.

Ok. Dad's here to help!

Summer is almost, I thought I'd reflect on Summer 2010. It's funny to read my post from February and think about how nervous I was about the summer. I had no idea what I was going to do and that post was all about rejections and confusion. God definitely pointed me in the right direction this summer.

I was blessed to work as a camp counselor at Brethren Woods! It was the most amazing experience ever! I journaled everyday and filled it with pictures and special things from the summer. It's been a summer of laughs, hugs, Jesus, fishing, canoeing, horse-back riding, FUN!, devotions, and an true agape community. Some weeks have been harder than others, but such is life. I've definitely decided that I'kidd like to work with kids in some capacity. It was honestly the most rewarding to work with the "difficult" campers and I can see myself working with troubled kids when I get older.

Right now, I'm taking a break. I'm spending the next few days at Marian and Jesse's house in PA! Tomorrow we're going to Hershey Park. There's a huge lightning storm going on right now! So much fun to watch!
