Pluto, WHAT!

so i found out this morning that pluto is no longer considered a planet! all my life, learning the acronyms and think that it was a planet and now one day all the scientists just decide that it isnt! so now does that mean that we have 8 planets in our solar system? and whats with naming a planet oprah? i personally think it's just all messed up. i guess its just another thing we have to live with

tomorrow is our big game against wilson central. i have heard that they are really bad this year so i'm sure we'll beat them. we get a dress down day, too. just because we are playing central and it isnt even a home game, but i'm not complaining. whatever mel brown feels he has to do. he's the coolest principal ever and he's like 75 years old. or at least he looks it. peace

a lot to do

tomorrow morning i get to get up at 530 and go do a service project for school. we will be handing water to the people in the wilson county bike race. if we do three service projects we get to go on the class trip at the end of the year. i think it also goes for our service hours for tennessee scholars.

the second week of school is over and i have had a bunch of homework. i'm taking world history this semester and the teacher is new this year. he gives a lot of work and requires us to take so many notes. i have a feeling that i will learn a lot though. i like the people in most of my classes and volleyball season has been kickin up so i've been going to the games. well, the home games anyway. i should probably go work on my homework now. peace

what a beautiful wedding

tonight i went to my godbrother's wedding. it was amazing! his brother played guitar and sang for part of it and he was so good. weddings always make me so happy and i cant stop smiling the whole time. everything about it was great. they aren't going on a honeymoon right away. i think they are waiting until september but tonight when they go back to their apartment, they will walk into a room with champaign and rose pedals on the floor. my family had to sneek in after they left and set it all up. we also had music playing. it was so beautiful.

so many people!!

tonight at youth, we had like 50 people show up and i think more than half of the people there were 6th and 7th graders. i could not believe the amount of kids runnin around. im not complaining because it was amazing!! we played underground church.. sort of. that's what jonathon called it anyway. after that we had a mini contemplative service. it was so great tonight.

on wednesday my godbrother is getting married!! its pretty exiting considering the women he's marrying and him have been together for like 3 years. i heard its not true that throwing rice kills birds. if you have no idea what i'm talking about, people said that the birds eat the rice, the rice swells up in their throats and they die. well its not true.

summer sizzler

this past weekend i went to summer sizzler!!! it was a blast and since it was a confrence event, hendersonville was there. we all got to see gavin and a few of the h'ville youth. jonathon n. was hanging out with his old youth from blakemore and west nashville. one thing i thought was really neat was that our speaker, jacob armstrong, graduated from mt. juliet in '98. i know a lot of people that graduated around that time and he did too. it was so random but i thought it was really cool. i had so much fun just hangin out with everyone and this year i was a small group leader with adam burgett. it was my first time being a small group leader and it was fun. the only bad thing is that it was sooo hot and humid. i strongly suggest to everyone to go next year. next up-jr., sr. high retreat! then the oh so famous warmth in winter. see every one there.

today is cara's birthday!!!! i didnt see her today to tell her but if you get the chance, tell her happy b-day!

dang, son!

ok, so yesterday was our first day of school! today was our first full day and yesterday was just a 2 hour day. no school tomorrow though. but we go back friday until we get out for fall break.

my classes are all good. i have a media concepts class and if you have comcast digital cable on your tv then watch channel 9 and see what we're putting up. channel 9 is MJHS's educational channel and we put up slides of stores in mj and school announcements and things like that. if you watch between like 11:15 and 1:20 you will see our news. that class is my only fun class though.

my next classes are just spanish dos, world history, which i'm taking because it talks about world religions, and honors geometry. maybe i'll have better classes next semester.
