Today in church, a youth pastor spoke about his mission team back from a trip to jamaica. In about three weeks they basically built houses for the homeless and spent time at an orphanage schools and infirmaries caring for people, sharing love and the gospel. What have I done for the past three weeks? Bitch. Moan. Groan. And Complain. Bullshit. Afterwards, the pastor said that the church is...

I know I’ve been lacking in some original posts lately, to the special few people who care to read, I apologize. In the past few weeks, I’ve sat down a few times at the computer in attempt to blog my thoughts, but its been difficult. My mind has been in all sorts of places lately in more ways than one and I’ve had trouble sheltering them coherency. I know I’ve only been...

I pulled out an entire root while gardening this morning. I was a bit curious to see how the roots had branched off in the soil so I shook all the soil off of it and this is what remained. Then I looked at it for a minute and thought, isn’t this exactly what our brain looks like? This looks just like a series of neuron branches. Looks pretty similar to me, or am I just tripping...
“Something is fundamentally wrong with the female body and it’s natural to be unhappy with it. It’s not just natural teenage insecurity either. In our society, adult female bodies are treated like mistakes that continually need correcting. It’s too smelly, it’s too hairy, it’s the wrong shape, it’s the wrong colour. We’re seen to be badly designed somehow, needing extra stuff to make them...

Take it from me, the quickest way to sabotage your new years resolution of losing weight and building a six pack is attempting to crowd into a gym with tons of other people who probably won’t keep to their resolutions. Even I wouldn’t last very long working out in gyms during January because I’d probably get too pissed off seeing so many people at the gym crowding into my work...

We went to a park that was familiar to me from another dream this summer while I was in Taiwan; but this time instead of a dark gloomy day, it was a very sunny day at the park. We talked a bit more, and then I just started running, almost at a parkour...
