I’m in my Bio 44X advisor’s room, using his Power Macintosh 7100/66.
This advisor, by the way, Mike Lin, is a really swell guy. And single. Come visit him. He lives at the end of the hall on the first floor in Serra, which by the way, is a cool dorm.
Last Friday FiCS was really good. We saw a video; Tony Campolo at Urbana ’87 re: commitment to God. Seriously, it was one of the most powerful things I have ever seen in my life. I strongly recommend you see it- it will (or should) change the way you see what being a Christian means.
The only thing wrong with Friday was the praise. OK, so I get the right equipment this week. But I chose really difficult songs. And they were really high. And we had tuned our instruments ever so slightly so high. So we’re singing stuff like Sweet Mercies or Take My Life and geez, we’re struggling to hold those Eb and Fs. Hard night. I lost my voice.
A song I’m digging right now is Brent Bourgeous’ Blessed Be The Name of the Lord, which was based on Job. Where he says, the Lord gives, the Lord takes away; Blessed be the name of the Lord. I guess just because sometimes, I feel like Job, and nothing in my life seems to make sense, but my prayer is that through it all, no matter what happens, though He take my very life, Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord.
I came to the realization again that I’m just plain annoying. That’s all it really comes down to. Kind of depressing to realize. Like the other night, a “friend” of mine says how her first impression of me was that I was really really annoying. And then she still finds me repulsive sometimes. So I’m perturbed, and my roommate goes, geez, you have a really abrasive personality. You have to expect stuff like that. Ouch. Abrasive is so abrasive. Ouch. Frankly, I’m repulsive.
So I went to the arcade the other day. They’re doing much better; have a variety of games, and they’re fairly cheap. $0.25 for Street Fighter Alpha. Now all I have to do is learn it.
