i subbed today and it went a lot better than last time. my friend charlie was there subbing for another (boring) class. i walked past his class and i peeked in, everyone there was reading silently in thier textbooks and working on thier assignments. BORING! in fact thats exactly what i said. i walked in, cupped my hands around my mouth and yelled "BORING!". all of the kids stopped and gave me the dirtiest looks. i was laughing so hard. it was so funny. any way, so i went over to this box of molecules and started piecing them together and making toys with them. i was hitting these balls together and it made a really loud clacking sound. i was so annoying, i told them it was becasue of my ADD! i eventually left the room and went to the office to talk to the attendance lady. on my way back down, i peeked into that same class that i was just in and all of the kids were running around being obnoxious! i'm so glad that i had a positive influence on someone today!
we went to two shows tonite. flocked cows at gotta lotta amd PPO at smithfield main. it was a lot of fun. flocked cows dedicated a song to me. it was called cellulite. i wonder if they were trying to hint something to me..........
and after that show we made our way to smithfield to catch ppo's set. it was really good. there were a lot more people at this show than at the other one. after the show a lot of people came up to me and said thier goodbyes. i heard a lot of "hey man, good luck. it was great getting to know you" and a couple of "i probably won't ever see you again"s. it really hit me. i am going on a mission on wednesday. for two years! i am sick at the thought that i will never see my friends again. i love my friends they have saped me into who i am. it just made me think a lot about what is going on. i really questioned the whole missiion thing tonite. and i'm still as excited as i've ever been.
i think that when someone gains a knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel it is thier responsibility to go out and proclaim it to the world. i know that this gospel is true. i know that there is a supreme being and that i can communicate with Him through prayer. i know that for a fact. and now it is my duty to bring this knowledge to my brothers and sisters in south carolina. i take comfort in that. it took me seven months of painful, intense pleading and praying before i finally recieved the answer to my prayers. and i will never forget it. it was truly one of the most sacred experiences i have ever had. and becasue of these things i have grown.
i'm too excited for tomorrow! but i have to get up at six. i'm out!
