Life Has a Pattern

I've noticed events in my life tend to take on a pattern. Luckily it's an easy one. Everything seems to happen at once, and then nothing happens at all for a day, or three, and then everything happens at once again. As exhausting as it sounds, I like it.

The play is finished now. The cast party was a mixture of sad and happy. Saying goodbye to some people I knew I wouldn't see for a while, but enjoying getting together to just hang out for once, instead of having to worry about rehearsals. Epic water fights ensued. Future plays were discussed. Awesomeness abounded.

The next day I executed a plan I had been working on for exactly one week. A surprise birthday party for my dear Fin. She turned 18. Aside from showing up ten minutes late, the plan worked flawlessly. You can read about it HERE.

I've finally reached my few days of rest, which means I had time to read Owl City's latest blog post. Strange, I hadn't realized just how much of an introvert I really am. If you ever have trouble understanding me and my ways, please use this post as a guide line. It fits me perfectly.

For those wondering how my writing is going, the amazing, wonderful, unbelievable Sky finished editing The Way We Think the other day. I have not sent it in for my free proof copy from CreateSpace. Just didn't have the time. As for other writings I haven't been doing anything serious. I keep telling myself as soon as things settle down I need to work on the outline for Ash Valley, but maybe I just need to get myself to do it now.

Even now I can see more of life's events piling up in my future. Some are new, some are exciting, I'm praying all of them will be approached with my heart in Christ Jesus.

I leave you with this video. It has absolutely nothing to do with this post, but it does have Dick Van Dyke.


  1. Because Dick van Dyke is just that awesome. :)

  2. This post makes me sad. I miss the play. I miss J.J. But on the other hand, I'm in love with being 18, I adore the fact that The Way We Think is finished and I love Dick Van Dyke.

  3. Like Ebee said...because Dick Van Dyke is just that awesome. I love that song. :)
    Happy 18th, Fin!
    Ah, I should get into the play business. You make it sound so fun.

  4. After reading the 10 Myths about Introverts, I realized how much I really am one, especially when given those words as described in that post. I laughed while reading the entire list...

  5. It sounds like you've been up to a lot, and a lot of good stuff, too! Happy birthday to Fin, by the way. :) And I love that I know what movie that song is from! :D
