I just had my last English class this morning. I got a good grade on my research paper, so I will be posting it soon. I’m not done with everything; I still have Macroeconomics to finish. However, I don’t care about that class, so I’m done for the most part.

Now that this semester is over, I’m sure it’s possible that the speed of time flow will accelerate,only to slow down at the beggining of the sping. Since I’m aware of this, I must be prepared to make the most of my time. I will also pray for length of days, which always helps.

Anyway, now that the semester is over I have quite a few things to do:

  • I need to continue maintaining the Quantico Young Marines website I need to get in contact with somebody in order to integrate some database with the website. However, I lost his card and still haven’t been able to get a hold of him.
  • I’m also planning on redesigning the website of my co-worker’s band. You see, the design and usability isn’t appealing–at all.
  • I’ve been wanting to fix up my site for quite awhile now. I want to embed Gallery and Zina into WordPress seamlessly, so the site can have a uniform feel. I also want to set up Horde in order to have my RSS feeds, email, and calendar in one place. I currently use Gmail and the personalized Google home page, which is okay, but not spectacular.

    I did some changes during the semester. I switch to WordPress and started transfer my files to a better host. However, I want to finish the changes by the time spring starts. I especially want to finish the hosting transfer, as my term with MySiteSpace ends soon.

  • I also need to do some things outside the internet, of course. My ’96 Toyota Corolla is due for a timing belt replacement. Also, if I ever want to visit friends at Liberty or Appalachian State over a weekend, I need to replace my clutch.

    I’ve been procrastinating these two important tasks long enough. I really want to take care of them before it gets any colder outside.

There are other things, of course, but I won’t bother listing them. Anyway, enough of my writing, it’s time for doing.

Lots of Crap

Lately I’ve had quite a few (bad) things happen in my life. From death (more on that later), to bad grades (read the previous post), having my place of employment shut down, and a few other things. However, even with all of this crap around, I’m still looking to God.

I may sound crazy to some people for standing fast in such times, but I don’t care. Do soldiers run away during an invasion or ambush? Does a farmer sleep in on a cold morning? Of course not. If I want to get through this, I’m going to have to follow God.

What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who didn’t spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how would he not also with him freely give us all things? Who could bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Even as it is written, “For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In order to get my Associates in IT at Germanna, I need at least one economics course. So I’ve been taking Principles of Macroecomics (ECO 201). I’ve taken Austrian-based economics (The kind libertarians uphold) while being homeschooled, so I wanted to see what was “macroeconomics.” Most of the matierial is a bunch of garbage. I’ve been experiencing horrible grades because of it.

I know I have to try harder; I’ve already been doing so. Even though I try so hard, I’ve been doing so horrible because I feel so guilty knowing the truth behind issues like inflation. It’s like an FSF member pretending that Linux was an entire operating system created by Linus Torvalds on whim one day, making him the the founder of “free” software. It’s like an NRA member talking about the benefits of gun control. The person just can’t keep their conscience from screaming bloody murder. How can I honestly talk about the complications of inflation when I know a simple answer? How can I think in concepts of complicated formulas when I know everyday examples are more effective? How can I honestly write a two-to-three page paper for extra credit (which I need) on the successor of Alan Greenspan when I disagree with the existence of the Federal Reserve in the first place?

It’s not an issue of studying more or concentrating harder; it’s a matter of honesty. Hopefully I be able to pull through this. If not, I’ll do it again, but with a different mindset. I won’t be learning to believe, but learning to argue against. By understanding the reasoning behind this crap, I’ll be able to pass tests and argue against it.
