Just spent half an hour sitting in my room talking to my fiancée on the phone before we both realized we could be on skype.
I’m getting on a plane to see her in 8 hours :)

If you ever get ruffled feathers from interactions with people on this website try to remember that they cannot see you and therefore cannot see how you really are reacting. There is a major problem with perception when reading only written words. The reader can and will interpret what they read through their own filter, not necessarily coming away with what you meant.
It is also very important to note that it is not necessary to attempt and correct everyone who misconstrues your words. I’ll say that again, you do not need to correct everyone. Sure it is annoying when people misunderstand you but if they are going to do so in a way that denigrates your words or you the possibility they will listen to what you have to say after that is very slim.
This site is full of people from a plethora of back grounds and eventually you might get your feathers ruffled or do some ruffling your self. Try to take a deep breath and realize people are different and it is alright to disagree on things. Do your best to not be a person offending others and certainly don’t do so on purpose. By not being so easily offended by other people on this site you should find it easier to let disagreements pass you by when they do arise.
God put man and woman together in marriage so we could work together and fill in each others gaps. Where one spouse needs help the other can share that load and even teach or show them how to be better in that area.

Went in today from 11:30-2:30 and I have the closing shift from 6:00-10:00. Not sure if my new friend will be there tonight to ask me another question or not.
Next week is Spring break and as I said earlier I will be in OH with Mary-Cait. I do not expect to be on this blog much(there are a few things in my queue) but my wedding blog will probably get some attention. We will be tasting for the food and the cake as well as doing a few other weddingy things. Probably post a few pics of the grounds where we are getting married too. Should be a productive and much need week with my future wife.
I’ll be with my fiancée for an entire week in 52 hours!!!!
If you’d like to pray for my safe travel I’d appreciate it. This will be only my second trip on an airplane.
Tonight’s question was about abstinence and masturbation.
I like that he doesn’t feel the need to beat around any bushes, just ask out right.
My new friend tells me he is going to have a question for me everyday. Should be fun
Don’t settle for someone that is not treating you right. Do not let somebody put you down and then blow it off like its not a big deal. You are an awesome person and if a person that is not treating you well does not see that let it be their problem and move on.
Since finding out that I am planning on going to seminary the 16 year old delivery guy at the pizza place I work at has started a few conversations with me.
The first time we talked it was about what makes Christianity different than other religions, which I think was a great place to start. Eventually the conversation turned into “why God hates gay people” to which I told him that was not actually the case.
Last night he wanted to talk about the morality of various activities including smoking pot and drinking.
He is a pretty interesting kid and it is cool that he is interested and willing to hear from a Christian on various issues. He always begins the conversation by walking up to me and saying “So, I have a question”
I’m looking forward to conversations with him in the future.
Just an interesting thing about the little debates that pop up late at night on tumblr is that through the likes and comments we can see who among the bloggers we know are still up just sitting on here.
A lot of us seem to still be here late at night but very few of us are posting. Why do we sit on this site so long? Even when we aren’t really doing anything. There isn’t much new content because so few of us post.
I am 100% sure that I spend too much time here. I’ll have to think about what that means and what i’m going to do about it.
