When it is worthwhile.

The IM guys came in this weekend for another event at First Baptist, which is always fortunate for me, because that means I get to hang out with some of the coolest bunch of guys I know. Thursday evening, Ben and I hung out at my local haunt, Live Wire, and had some good conversation about life, love, and relationships. It is one of the two most recent conversations I've had that have made me feel a little bit better about things. If Erin W. is reading this, I'm sorry if I've acted like a douche, and thanks for your caring and patience.

I had an eye doctor appointment in Lexington in the afternoon. I finally am wearing contacts again after running out of them over two months ago! It feels good to wake up in the morning and be able to see. I'm pretty excited because my prescription didn't change hardly at all. (whoo hoo) Hung out with Ben and Topher a while that afternoon. That evening hung out at Live Wire some more and caught part of the Jazz Crawl that took place in downtown Richmond. I've never in my life seen so many people crammed into that small coffee shop! Back at the ranch, some friends were in town, and we played a card game called, "Oh Hell". Good times, good friends.

Slept in. Went to St. Awesome's at 3:00 to volunteer as Video Switcher. For those of you not "in-the-know" the video switcher is the guy that sits in front of a lot of buttons and a wall of TV monitors and "switches" from Camera 1 - to Camera 2 - to a DVD playback - to Camera 3 - back to Camera 1... etc. Of course this is all done via input from the Video Director. It was fun. It was also my last weekend volunteering before my summer gig at Jenny Wiley. Another thing that made it fun was that it was something different, and it was challenging. I love working outside my normal comfort box and learning new things. That evening, my friend William had a housewarming party at his BRAND SPANKIN' NEW HOUSE! Not only is his house awesome, but we all had a lot of fun, and I met some really cool new people, too.

The morning came way too early, as it usually does when I volunteer on the weekends. At St. Awesome's at 8:15am to continue my Video Switcher role. After the last service, Matt, Casey, Patch, Tim, and I grabbed some quick lunch from Backyard Burger, and headed back to the church. Back at the church I helped lead a Lighting Seminar with Matt for the rest of the guys. It was fun, but I'm so horrible at that kind of thing. I teach much like I learn, by doing rather than being told how. After the seminar, I went back home and crashed hard. Slept for a few hours, then did homework, and went to bed.
