Bikes Are Fun!

So last night I came to a funny conclusion... Bike riding is fun. Especially with a group of friends. Last night after work, my good friend Jason left me a text saying, "We are coming to pick you up". First off, I didn't know who we was and secondly, I thought I was getting picked up in a car. To my suprise, "we" were a bunch of friends and I wasn't getting picked up in a car, instead I ended up joining a caravan of bikes.

We went to this new yogurt place called Blizberry. It was pretty bomb, I must say. It was also the most fun I have ever had riding a bike in a while. It was also nice doing something fun with people my own age for a change. We gotta do it again.

If anybody out there wants to go for a random bike ride, hit me up. - 562-413-8638.

Mission Trips!

Tonight a bunch of my friends are leaving for a mission trip to Ecuador. They'll be gone for a couple of weeks. One of my friends, let's just call her, oh I don't know... AMY is going to be there for six months. Also, soon a couple of other friends are going to Morroco. I'm just going to ask you to keep them in your thoughts and / or prayers.

Keep on keepin' on! - Luntangclan!

Go See Get Smart

Usually when ever I go see a movie based on a tv show or a comic book, or even a sequel for that matter, I usually end up being upset. I care about accuracy in those kind of things. You know did the movie do the original justice. That sort of thing.
This was not the case for Get Smart.

I grew up on that show. I would watch it with my grandparents on Nick at Nite. I even remeber it being on in the afternoons on channel 13 when I was little. It also comes on around 9:00 on KDOC, Channel 56.

I went into the movie thinking it was going to be a suckfest. Then watching the movie, my world was rocked, because it was true to the tv show. I'm only gonna spoil one thing for you. Bill Murray!!!

Mylo! - I Got What I Paid for.

So yesterday, I recieved my Sony Mylo in the mail. I got it for $50.00 on ebay. That's kind of cool, right? I said I got what I paid for because I thought I was going to get the software for it. I didn't get it. It also didn't come with instructions or a USB cord. I'm not sad. I like it. I just really need the software. I've started looking for it. So, if anybody knows of a place where I can get it. I will love you forever.

The Blog I Never Wrote!

I've been wanting to say this for quite some time. So here it goes...

IIIIIIIIIIIIII'm back ya'll. I'm back ya'll. I'm backer than back and I'm back ya'll. You see a few months ago I lost my job as a customer service clerk and I was downgraded to stocker. Not like I was following customers around the store. That is a different spelling. More like I was stalking shelves. A couple of months ago, My good friend, Pat quit and I got my job back again. So, IIIIIIIIIIIIII'm back ya'll. I'm back ya'll. I'm backer than back and I'm back ya'll.
That's all she wrote.

My Final "Moving On" Post.

For the past few posts, I've been blogging about how I'm upset with some things that have happened in my life lately and how I hve just been hurting inside. Thanks to some encouragement, prayers, and just talking it out, I don't feel as frustrated anymore.

Since I've been talking about moving on, I have had to make two difficult decisions. One of them being that I am going to be leaving on a spiritual journey to find the right church. The other was one that was very hard and I even lost some sleep just thinking about it. It's one of those decisions that nobody would expect from me.

You see, ten years ago, Jeff Barrick invited me to a super bowl party at his church. I thought it was cool because I had never been to a super bowl party before. He told me that the name of the church service was called the Burn. This service was interesting because it was a church service was for young people. Jeff took me around to meet everybody and everybody welcomed me in. I met Jason Yost for the first time that day, so that was pretty cool.

Years later, I started volunteering more with the youth group. Then in 2003, I became a youth leader and I've been doing it ever since. Then lately I've came to thinking that I don't really click that well with the students like I used to. Some of the students just badmouth me and don't respect me anymore.

I have decided since I am leaving the church, I am also going to be leaving the Burn. It's been an awesome ten years and I sure am going to miss it. I am gonna be leaving "big church" pretty soon. I'm gonna pop in every once in a while just to see how things are going. I'm gonna stick around the Burn until the end of the summer.

Thanks everybody who has taken the time to read my past few blogs and for being there for me. And that's all she wrote!

What Does it Mean to Move On?

Lately in my posts, I've been talking about moving on. People have been wondering what that means. It means this. Since I am unhappy with not getting anything out of church, I am going to go "church shopping". I want a place where I can get something out of church and also a place where I can develop new friendships.

Unfortunately, it has become very painful, because there are a lot of people that I look up to and I have a lot of friends over there as well. I've been talking to people about it and praying and just making sure I'm doing the right thing. It's time.

A Word Of Encouragement

I would like to know who you are. You can emeil me at Again, thank you.

What Happened To Me?

I need your prayers again. I just feel like my life is just falling apart. The other day I was just thinking how there just seems nothing left for me in Downey anymore. I mean I really want to get out of here. A good chunk of my friends have married and moved on, moved away, and I don't get to see them anymore. I have a couple of friends who are talking about moving to the land of the Ferrullis. I'm even thinking about doing that. I also keep wanting to get a job that I know I'm not gonna get. I don't even feel excited about church or youth ministry anymore. And, to be perfectly honest, I feel like I screwed my life up and I don't even know where to pick up the pieces to sew it up and move on.

What happened to me? I didn't write this blog because I want attention. I wrote this blog because, hell, I'm hurting and I feel lonely, really lonely and I need friends and I just need to get this out of me!

Just pray for me. That's all I'm asking for.

All Right Comic Book Nerds, Help Me Out!

I have a signed comic book autographed by comedian, Brian Posehn and his friend who helped him write the comic. I really want to sell it. The problem is I don't know how much I can get for it. I went to ebay and craigslist and I couldn't find it to compare prices. I also went to a couple of comic book price guides online and couldn't find anything. Does anybody out there know of a website where I can get it priced.

It's called, "The Last Christmas" by Brian Posehn and it is personally autographed to me. Also, if you have no idea who Brian Posehn is, he is probably most famous for being on Just Shoot Me. He is also one of the comedians of comedy. Here's a picture of the guy.

90s Nostalgia

A while back, I was randomly thinking of pogs or Hawaiian milik caps and whatever happened to that trend. From the ages of 12 - 14, I played pogs all the time. Then, one day out of the blue, they just seemed to disappear from the face of the Earth.

I had a bunch of pogs and slammers. I even had a sweet board to play them on. I kept them all hoping for a comeback. Then, about two or three years ago, I realized that it was never gonna come back and I threw them all away.

A few days ago, I went to the 99 cent only store with my good friend, Tommy Burkhardt. We were looking for something to connect his synthesizer with my computer to record some stuff, when all of a sudden, lo and behold, the 99 cent store had pogs for sale. So we bought a few and it looks like we're bringing pogs back.

Now I know what you're thinking, and I'm not gonna spend all of my money on pogs. I'm not that stupid. I just really liked playing them. That's all.

In a way, it's kind of like when you played Super Mario Bros. when you were a kid and your Nintendo kept breaking down. You had to stop playing with it. Then all of a sudden, when you can buy it on the Wii virtual consoule, or download it from your computer, you get to do something you really liked when you a kid all over again and you just don't care what anybody thinks.
