Where did all the space go?

So I’m working on Midwestskier a little bit again and I was looking at the space usage and couldn’t figure it out. It said I was using 670 megs of my gig. I have taken most of the old site down and am playing with some cms stuff and the numebr didn’t shift… weird is…

Broken Day

It?s a constant awe to me how the Lord teaches us and stretches us. In those times when we feel as though we?re walking with God and then in a day everything changes and we?re thrown on our head. As though we finally looked to our left and saw how far God was from us…

Being a Christian RA

It?s taken me a while to think and process through all of this to discover what it means to be a Christian resident advisor. I knew that being a Christian in this environment I was called to be different and it been a challenge. There have been a number of challenges, and I by no…

Another Update!

So I’ve been slacking major on the updating of this journal but it will get better, because I’m starting to realize how much I’m suppressing my processing of whats going on in my life. This blog helps me do that. Random stuff; I won a free whole pie at baker square today in my SRVM…

It’s finally Done!

As much fun as RA training was, I’m so glad it is finally over. The first three days were a lot of fun because they were smaller settings. There are only 17 new RA?s for this semester and so it was fairly personal. I really enjoyed being able to joke around and make the time…

How I Became an RA!

I absolutely hate this feeling, being so confused and spun around. Having satan standing in the shadows of my soul pulling and teasing the light to stray. Father give me strength and allow me to accept that you don?t allow me to stray far from you, from true life. RA? Could it be so? Could…

Direction of My Life…

This is something that, in all honesty, I have been avoiding for some time (see previous post). I have this weird gift where I am able to see where God needs me to be and I know how to get there, most of the time I can figure out why and make sense of the…

end of midwestskier?

A mumbling rant shall ensue. I’m sick of feeling like I’m distant, so tired of trying hard to no avail. This is no cry for help rather a cry for someone to understand, a cry that has yet to be heard. I could keep going, and I’m sure I will, but the reasoning seems distant…

Is it really today?

So the event is past, I’m glad it’s over and not sure if I’m doing another. I know I would say that with more confidence but last year I said the exact same thing. As of right now, just trying to get all the follow up work done and out the door as well as…

Sitting in Duluth

Well I got up here alright, everything is going really well. I only forgot three things that I know of so far, the trophies (which have been made and paid for already, just forgot to pick them up!), extension cords, and the digital camera battery charger. So I really can’t complain. I have everything else…

I’ve Made it This Far

Well I’m sitting here in my Honors English Seminar realizing that in only nine hours I will be leaving Stout for home. Every year it gets even easier to hold this event and it’s interesting how that has coincided with the growing of my faith. If it weren’t for the presence of God in my…

Interesting Phone Call

Well needless to say when I made this phone call yesterday I was not expecting the conversation to lean and end this way. I called up a ski shop I had been working on building a good relationship with and they had asked me to call them back. That they had something I would be…

My Day

Well I called highline back today, let them know that I’m planning on doing a summer project and won’t be able to go out there for an internship. I will admit I was slightly nervous doing so, since this is a great opportunity for me. After talking for a minute Dave told me that if…

Feeling Empowered

I know that right now I’m stepping on toes. I’m making them uncomfortable in this old industry and there really isn’t anything they can do about it. For the past several years I learned from their lead and from their teachings. Despite how it may sound, I truly am grateful for all the lessons each…

Welcome 2004

So it’s been a few days now but 2004 is still just getting started. This was the best New Years I have ever been to. It was the campus crusade Christmas conference for the upper Midwest region, also known as TCX (Twine Cities Experience). Just imaging a couple thousand college kids in a room rocking…

It's Crunch Week

And welcome to crunch week. I really wish this could have taken place next year but with the event moved up two weeks because someone at red bull can’t check a hockey schedule properly, I am forced to be a bastard this week to my sponsors. The fortunate thing is that all budgets should be…

Mind Games

Here is what has been going on in my mind for the last couple days. I don’t expect anyone to read this and/or understand it. This is just to help me write it out and maybe come to some sort of conclusion. Have you ever felt as though you were at a point in your…

Taken this Long

I’m sitting here in the Marriott Park City and realizing that finally today something struck me. I know I realized it for some time but today the actuality of it became quite clear. There were actually two big things that happened this weekend. I’ll start with the lesser of the two, as it requires some…

Finally Done!!

Semester one is complete and I’m just waiting until I head for home (in about four hours). Finals we’re as hard as everyone seemed to make them out to be, maybe after getting further into the program they will become harder for me. I did only have one test, two portfolio reviews, a semester project…
