co-op II

Start: co-op term II
Location: Princeton, IN
Time: 10:19 pm

I've moved in today. Back to the small town. Not quite home. Smaller than Louisville. Tomorrow I start my co-op with the best automotive comany in the world: Toyota. I really like my job, working in the environmental department. Everyone knows I'm in over my head, over my head...

I will be here until the end of the year. Making money. Lots of reading. Lots of writing. Lots of stuff. I really don't know why I have a blog. Maybe cause it's the cool thing to do. Maybe cause I really like writing. Maybe I like experimenting. Maybe, maybe she says somethin' I'm so, I'm so tired...

Cause, you see, Brick is to high school as Gotham City is to New York. 'Twas a good movie. About drugs being ran in high school and people getting caught. Strange. I think maybe I have fleas. Or maybe there's only eight seconds left in overtime, she's on your mind, on your mind...

I gotta go. Long days. Pleasant nights.

Lucky! Lick the Downtrodden!

God has been good to me. Merciful. Gracious. Forgiving.
He has been good to the ones I love. Kind. Comforting. Strong.
Yet it seems, no matter what, people are conflicted. I've said before that drama does not really happen to me, but to the ones I love. Many of my friends and relatives have been beset by problems that lead to a deep sadness, and though no great tragedy has happened to me, I feel like I am to be a help. And so I try. I remind that God is always there and that He knows what is going on. He is in charge, after all.
But the downtrodden are given a choice: stay down or rise. Bravo to those who rise, and prayers to those who do not. Perserverance is vital for this life. As is God. He is a loving God and an omnipresent God. He does not forsake. He will never forsake. Prayer and a Bible are essential tools to press on.
And, of course, being around friends and just people in general usually makes bad feelings (loneliness, for example) go away. We are somewhat like leeches, feeding off the khef of others. And if people don't work, dogs usually always do. Go up to a dog (make it a friendly one) and cry around it; I would almost bet a limb that it will lick you and make you feel better. My fiance felt down the other day, and I wanted her to feel better, so I summoned the dog to lick the downtrodden. I think it worked. At least it got her sticky.
