It's 2am... First things first. This blog is more confusing because of the way the layout inserts my entries. I actually type in paragraphs but the layout is apparently against the whole idea of that... So on... My life has taken a turn for the better. I am actually in Norwood right now, watching my parents house. I watched the movie "Letters to God" tonight. I was blown away! I heard a ton of girls talking about how they saw it and sobbed for hours after... Well I am another sob story. I'm not much of a fan of "Gospel Promoting" main screen movies... You're probably thinking "what is wrong with you?" Well to answer you... I find that the majority of these movies are filled with bad acting and it becomes hard for me to focus through that... just my opinion though! However, I loved "Letters to God" it was the most powerful movie I have ever seen. Just watching how one kid with Cancer can touch THOUSANDS of people across the world is insane. He never gave up, EVER. He truly believe that He was sent by God to live and no matter what His life looked like (cancer or not) he was going to live according to God's will. The concept that hit me so hard was that this kid wasn't writing letters to God for personal healing. He was writing/praying for OTHERS. In the midst of his pain he put others first. That is an example of Christ! I am blown away.... I don't have much else to say but I do have MUSIC...

I'm not even going to lie. Today was difficult. I haven't had a day off from work in 3 weeks. I wouldn't say it's a bad thing, but being manager pays me NO OVERTIME. There is a price to pay when you first get promoted. I am willing but was not expecting all of this. Needless to say I am EXHAUSTED... The past few days will be described in probably the most confusing context ever because that is how I roll... I purchased an iPad as you probably saw from the entry below. It is by far the most useful apple device I have. It's extremely compact and easy to use. It's helping me be more organized. Also... "Mobile Me" is a great tool if you are a Mac/iPhone/iPad user. Mainly because it keeps everything in sync by you just updating one device. Last night I worked until 8pm. Work started out great until my brand new blackberry was stolen. I wouldn't say it was that big of a deal. It's just upsetting knowing that I have to pay for it now. So besides being out $600 I learned from the situation. I was extremely frustrated when I figured out that it was stolen. Mainly because I know exactly who did it. I helped the two people with so much and they took something from me. I think it is a prime example of my relationship with God recently. He has given me a lot. Yet I still don't acknowledge him all the time. I still sin constantly and from some periods of time live deep within that sin... So the outcome is that the stolen phone made me realize how I don't love God enough... if that makes sense... I got to hangout with Brad TODAY! (yay! out of order stories!). Him and I grabbed lunch and I saw some of his new cars/new dealership. He's doing extremely well for himself. God has blessed him and Brad gives him all the glory. MUSIC TIME: I was told about this artist by two people: Jenna and my new friend Bonnie so all the "street cred" goes to them... Enjoy it! It's a great song!

Too start I owe you all a video so here it is! Something Corporate - "Konstantine" Live @ The House of Blues Boston, MA I have been on a "concert hangover" since thursday. I want to see soco live again. It was definitely the best concert I have gone too. Since thursday I have been extremely busy. Friday was tiring to say the least. I went to dover with Dan & Josh. We met up with Kerriann, Lauren, & Clara at a house that Clara was watching. It was a great time! We were children haha. Ate a bunch of food, played games. Hide & Seek in the dark was probably the best. The ride home was hilarious because apparently Dover center has a speed limit of 20MPH (though it's a posed 30)... I got pulled over on the smallest road ever and couldn't find my registration. I eventually found it and all the cop asked was how much I drank. Clearly I was drinking a lot in between dinner and Hide & Seek! Josh prayed before we got pulled over and I am convinced that I didn't get a ticket for that reason... It was hard enough explaining what someone from BEVERLY was doing in "the middle of nowhere - Dover" Saturday I headed down to Millville for a "Man-Night" at Jasons. I killed everyone in Poker then lost to everyone the second game! I didn't get home until 1am... being able to sleep in was the best part! I just got out of church. Playing drums was awesome... Jenna picked some AWESOME SONGS and Neil's sermon hit me hard. I am so blessed to live in such an amazing community! God is so good! ... busy week ahead!

As you can see I saw "Something Corporate" recently... recently being about 4 hours ago. It was amazing! Hands down the best concert I have ever been to. I am posting a few of my favorite pictures from the concert now but video will follow later... I went in with my sister and we got to meet up with her friend Amy (I guess you can say my friend now too?). Funny story... last concert I went to that was this good was with both Amy and my Sister... weird. I guess we all just love awesome music! I am probably obsessed with SoCo more now then I was before... deal with it.
As for the weekend... I am working a whole bunch. Which is a good thing! For those of you who don't know this Saturday is Tax Free Day! Go out and buy ridiculously expensive things that the government won't make money on... Oh... I am playing drums at church on Sunday... that's fun too... I like drums... the end.

It's official... I have entered the world of blogging. Some of you might be asking "what the crap do you have to talk about that is so important." To give you a completely honest answer... EVERYTHING... (that's a joke). I honestly have nothing important to say on here. This blog is intended to be nothing more than random things that happened throughout my day(s) and probably a whole bunch of music that I am addicted to at that very moment. I am excited to share with you the music portion of the blog more so then the actual "day-to-day" part.I must say I am already searching for words to type out and I am going to continue thinking while typing in a long sentence...My Past week... I have definitely realized how important community is this week. Friends are amazing and the community I live in challenges me more than anything else in my life. I desire so much to be a man chasing after God and I am surrounded by people who desire the not just the same thing for their lives but mine too. It's an amazing experience when shares in your desire.I got promoted to Retail Sales Manager (ya!) it's a pretty big move. I'm a little nervous because I am the head of the busiest store in the District but other than that I know I can do it. Only thing I am nervous about is being the go to guy when things go wrong... usually when you're the manager and things go wrong, YOU'RE the one who has to take all the blame. I will just have to keep mistakes at a minimum and manage by example.Now to the fun part... MUSIC!!!!Recently I have been listening to a variety of music and by recently I mean since I was born... I came out of the womb listening to drum corp so you will see some of that on this site.The first video/artist I want to share with you is going to be Ben Rector and his cover of "Free Falling". This song is AWESOME. Enjoy it and let me know what you think!
