This is pretty journal-y, so if you don't care, I don't really care either. haha I'd say skip it if you're looking for some meaning. This is just me recapping a really happy fun day.
Yesterday was very unepic.
I started with a great day, checking out some art (plus one of my prints) in an art show, then chilled and flipped with Ryan Smith. I finished the entire rest of the day with horrible stomach pains that felt like an alien was growing inside of me. The leaders meeting for the Middle School Lifegroup was awesome so that helped a little. I hung out with my friend I've known since Kindergarten and then got to hear the prettiest voice on the planet for a while. :D All in all, wasn't horrible, but that stomach pain got to me real bad.
Today was, in fact, much better. Some may even say epic! :D
I listened to some not so good presentations (and a couple good ones) in English, that my teacher was pretty receptive of. That encouraged me because mine is on Thursday. Then I had a great time in Print Making 2 pulling mono prints for the first time. I think I like those the best of anything I've done so far! Mono prints are like any other prints, in that you start with a predetermined matrix to print from, but then you hand paint it so each one is slightly or completely different. Fun stuff! I then had some amazing quiet time in prayer and in 2 Samuel. Work was good. I enjoyed moving big heavy stuff. After work the epicmeter started to really fill! I got the chance to pick up Alicia and take her for a super-short coffee date to Dunkin' Donuts with the 2 free small coffee coupons I received from Lifepoint Midtown (what what)! On the way back to my truck (with 2 cinnamon coffees in hand (and an iced coffee Alicia bought for Arielle)), so I could take her to the library, we experienced a 10 minute hurricane in the sun and got a nice kiss in the rain. :D Then, after I dropped her off, I pulled onto College Road heading towards Monkey Junction to hit up some awesome Lifegroup time and noticed that Jesse and Ed were tailing me! Short phone call to them, jamming out to sweet tunes, and a little driving later, we were at Dobey's house, where Ed and I had a good wrestling match. haha Then we had a really great discussion with the boys about Genesis 1 in the bible. At the end of the night, Ed and I threw some of the boys to do back flips and just had a lot of fun. I gave Kai a ride home and we had a cool conversation. "But John, when in all that did you have time for dinner?" you might ask. I got home and had honey drizzled chicken, I would respond. Life is good. God has blessed me and I just hope I'm accurately displaying Jesus through my life to my family, friends, Alicia, and those boys.
