Ever just feal like posting? or Where I go to vent!

I desided to post because I am getting tired of looking at that silly little list! Yes, yes I know that it is very late for me to be posting especially with the first day of school coming up in 4 hours! I can't sleep very well, a lot has been on my mind.

One of my friends has just had a baby and so I spent the past few hours visiting with her in the hospital. It was amazing for me. It was the first time that I have ever held a baby! (I know, I need to get out more) but it was truly an experience to remember. Such a small and precious thing. To be there for some of the first few hours of a posible 120 year life was truly an honor.

I'm sorry to all of my fans out there but this is NOT going to be a funny post.

It was amazing to me how perfect God has created us all. It is moments like holding a newborn child that show me what life is all about, how the world is ment to turn. In moments like that it let me see what is important in life and why we do the things we do.

The whole thing makes a guy just want to settle down and have kids!

But, not yet.

I start school today! In about 3 hours I am going be starting the drive to school to kick off the fall quarter. I am excited and a little worried about fitting in all of my other activities aka Job, Chruch, Frisbee, Scouts etc. But I know that this is going to be a year to remember.

I have a song that is really affecting me. That Green Day song: When September Ends. Well not really the song but the music vidio, it kinda' hit home for me. I have only seen it twice, but it kinda bothers me that they only show the horrors of war and the selfishness that is evident in bothe of the kids' lives. I wish that they could have shown some character development in the two. Or maybe show that it is not just the Girl the boy is living for, but it is now his brother in arms as well.

For all of you that have seen it, give me your feedback on it!

Jesus is better than Frisbee,

Will

Hey everyone!

You all probably know by now about the awfull huricain that has just struck New Orleans. If you havn't heard about the looting and the traped people and the rizing death toll, then you had better watch the news.

I just got a phone call tonight telling me that my unit is on "Alert Status". They told me to have all of my gear ready to go. I could be called up tonight and be gone by tomorrow! So if you are reading this pray for me and all of our fellow americans in the South.

When I first heard heard it on the phone, I was very excited, thinking "now I will have something to tell my Grand Kids about!" The whole situation is preaty low risk and is mostly clean up and search and rescue. But as I have read the National Guard is stretched thin protecting businesses from looters and there have even been soot outs with armed gangs in the streats.

This is all very exciting and kinda' scary at the same time.

As I said, pray for me. I will probably see you all at frisbee on thursday but you never know.

Frisbee player God Worshiper and Soldier of the United Sates,
