sometimes boring is good

This week has been a really good week. (besides all the working, but working DOES mean paychecks- my favorite!)

i got to spend some time with a couple of my favorite people- one of which just graduated from UGA and is interning at the Wesley Foundation next year (yay!) i think that i should mention that i told him that he would intern when he was a senior in high school and i was in my first year in the internship program. it seems strange to me that so much time has gone by between now and then. but, i am pumped that he is doing it because working at Wesley was probably the best experience of my life so far.

anyways, we went to dinner and he catered to two of my great loves; good conversation and Mexican food! So that was a fun night, and then the following night i hung out with my friend Andrew, which usually means dinner at Publix and a documentary. However, since we were hanging out on the night of The Office, we did not watch a documentary, but we stayed true to our normal routine and ate a Publix dinner.

Yesterday my family and i attended a senior brunch (or "unch" in my mom's case) for my baby sister who is graduating from high school. Strangely enough, it was not a buffet. i don't know why, but i always assume that a brunch is going to be a buffet. is that an abnormal assumption? but they did have the brunch standard quiche, with potatoes, a cheese biscuit, and a yummy croissant with some kind of chicken mixture inside.

i am getting used to working again, which basically means growing accustomed to being tired all the time. i only work four days this week, which will be nice because we have a busy weekend next weekend with my sister's graduation, family coming into town, parties, and i am planning on going to a fundraiser concert at my church featuring Mac Powell. That's right, how many of y'all have Mac Powell doing a fundraiser at your church?

sorry for this boringly detailed post of my life. i didn't realize i would be making a list of boring things when i sat down to write it. i am not feeling very deep these days, so this is what comes out of my head. any suggestions for writing topics? i think i need more direction.


  1. What does Timshel mean?

  2. i got the idea of Timshel from John Steinbeck's book East of Eden. In short, it is a translation of Genesis 4:7 when God tells Cain that sin is crouching at his door and "Thou mayest" (or timshel in the Hebrew) rule over it.

    The idea is that we have the ability to choose our paths, be they good or evil, right or wrong. That is why i say "the possibilities are endless" because of the endless outcomes to the myriad choices we have to make each and everyday.

    Timshel. Thou mayest.
