Yesterday we got together with my favorite family from our church and had a cookout/pool party. I didn’t swim though; I just shot my sisters and their friends with a water-gun from the side of the pool. We all had a great time, especially after my older sister (who also wasn’t going to swim) fell into the pool with her clothes on. Go figure…

Unfortunately, the rest of the week will not be a swimming success: I’m scheduled to have my wisdom teeth extracted on Friday. While I’ve always liked the taste of blood (like after biting through my tongue), the thought of tasting it for two days strait is already making me nauseous. But Que Sera Sera. The surgery will only have to be done once, and after that comes ice cream.
I lived! Apart from a violent, blood-filled coughing fit that happened just after all my attendants left the room, the situation has been good: ice cream, sherbet, pudding…. the works.

While I break my workfest for a few days following the surgery, I’ll be doing some more work on Nitegames. The rules need a major overhaul; I updated them last month with a few pending tweaks, but they could use a slight rewrite. The entire site has failed somewhat due to my lack of a proper server; perhaps I can persuade the bigwigs down at Bob Jones to lend me some campus server space. Hopefully, hopefully, hopefully, hopefully….. maybe they’ll accept a bribe.

Until next time – don’t take any wooden nickels.

Never! I would never forget to post on May 5! Not in a million summers!
Well, maybe… but that’s 25 days behind us, so just forgive and forget, eh? No!? Alright then… I’ll post twice!

As the title states, I am now a high-school graduate. Usually, this means that I’m done with school, but not so. I have one more test to take in Literature, and then I’m done with the second longest section of my life. It’s bittersweet. I’ll be off to college (college! how distant that used to sound) in eleven weeks.

I’m still trying to cope with missing everything. Surprisingly, I don’t believe I’ll miss my family as much as I’ll miss our church, just because I’ll stay in contact with the family weekly. But all of the church: the choir (I’ll never play for them again), the special music (I’ll never accompany them again), the Awana Sparkies (I’ll never listen to their sections again)… all of the church I must leave behind.

So, for eleven weeks, I’ll be spending as much time as I can at church. Pastor and I are starting a mentoring program that will go each Thursday from 7 AM to 8 PM. If I’m not sick of being there for thirteen hours then, my sisters and I will be heading up a puppet ministry. Hopefully these will tide me over until next summer when I can come home and (hopefully) jump right back in again.

Until tomorrow – work hard, play hard, and get lots of roughage in your diet.
