10 Years ago: I was 11 and in the sixth grade. I loved Star Wars, especially Star Wars micromachines. Coolest. Things. Ever. My friends and I wrought havoc at Zeman Elementary, being removed from assemblies for laughing uncontrollably, bending silverware in the cafeteria, and generally running amok. One time we carried a donut around for a week that was left over from a teacher's meeting one morning. We named him "Doney" and he would sit quietly on our desk while work was done. Our teacher threw him in the trash several times, but we always found some way of rescuing him.
5 Years ago: I was 16 and a junior in high school. This was my most difficult, but also most productive, year of high school. AP US History was the most useful class of my high school experience, since it taught me how to write historical arguments based on primary texts. I was very involved in Berean's high school youth group, and had been playing electric guitar on the worship team there for about a year. I think I was introduced to Radiohead in the spring of this schoolyear.
1 Year ago: I was a junior in college. My semester was a full one, with Medieval Literature and Theology being my most time consuming, but probably most interesting, class. I think I was still writing on my first blog, and Jacob and I would soon form this one. I had recently met all these great people from Zion, and was starting to do some RUF stuff.
Yesterday: Slept late since I did some recording
the night before. Nearly missed my bus on the way to school. Discussed Thomistic philosophy in my Great Ideas in Religion class. Had a great practice for worship team, and played my electric guitar for the first time in a couple weeks. Watched the second half of Scorsese's Bob Dylan documentary and went to bed too late for the second night in a row.

5 Things I'd do with a million dollars: buy 100 million Chicklets, mountaineering expeditions, finance revolutions, build a cake or something, give to worthy non-profit organizations (like the Precious Moments Chapel)
5 places I'd run away to: Colorado; Glastonbury, England; the Swiss Alps; Iceland; Nepal
5 Things I'd never wear: glitter, Abercrombie (it'd take a lot of convincing), pantyhose (or, for that matter, anything with the word "panty" or "hose" in it), stirrup pants, precision time pieces (not really)
5 favorite tv shows: Simpsons, I Love the 80s, Behind the Music, David the Gnome, X-Files
5 Greatest joys: salvation, good music, clean sheets just out of the dryer on a cold evening with the windows open, thought-provoking discussion, precision time pieces (not really)
5 people to pass this on to: Jacob (since he hasn't done it yet), Ben (if he were, hypothetically, to post on his blog)...anyone else who reads this and feels inspired
