First Time In A Long Time

Posted on October 27th, 2005

Today was a bit of a momentous day for me; there were three things that I did for, as the subject suggests, the first time in a long time:

1. Eat Fruit Loops! I normally stick to healthier varieties of cereal but Sobey’s had this amazing sale for Fruit Loops and I got suckered into buying them. I think I might have eaten some when I was back at St. Paul’s but I’m not certain. And hey, what’s wrong with a little sugar and food colouring from time to time?

2. Draw for my site! The last graphical change occurred well over a year ago, and my style-o-meter is starting to show some pretty rough numbers. While the site is still fairly clean and functional, I think an overhaul is in order. I’m not sure how this is going to turn out, but I’m expecting higher contrast and easier navigation. If all goes to plan, I can enable some of the features of the journal that I haven’t done (e.g. search, comment preview).

3. Pray! And more importantly, pray well! I was having a chat with my good friend Rob today and, during our conversation, I realized that my prayers had become fairly mundane and drab; I said things without really thinking about them or really meaning them. Furthermore, I noticed that the reasons for which I prayed were selfish: help with this, help with that, and so on.

He offered some insight on his mental disposition when he prays and gave some guidance on how I could go about praying. Already feeling a disconnect from God, I really wanted to put in the effort to have meaningful time with Him. So shortly after my chat with Rob, I sat on the floor of my room and waited.

I tried to calm my body and clear my thoughts; I wanted to let God work through me. One thing that I found peculiar (and cool) was that I didn’t want to ask God for anything… I just felt like trusting Him. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve heard say “Whatever happens, happens for a reason.” I catch myself saying that from time to time, too. Maybe I’m starting to trust the Reason more.

And so there you have it. Job rankings come out tomorrow so I’ll see what options (if any) I have regarding my employment next term. The Waterloo jobs to which I have applied got cancelled, so, if I do get a job this round, it will be in the States. Hm.
