The Earth is not a Dead Cold Place [17 Nov 2004|01:29pm]
[ mood | calm ]

Most of my friends are younger than me. I am fine with that. But sometimes I wonder if the things I am going through are natural for where I am at in life. I have been so hung up on my future lately. I am ready to give 100% to my dreams. I am sick of just living for a paycheck. All I am doing is putting off the great things God has in store for me. I want to be happy, I do not want to stress about finances. Yet at the same time, now is when I need to start chasing after the call on my life. It doesn’t have to happen when I am older.

 

I am pretty sure I am losing my job again at the end of the year. This is kind of what spawned all of this thought. I am not concerned with it however. It is just confirmation that I need to start submerging myself into my future. Start working for something, rather than just “getting by”. Your prayers are appreciated.

Pivotal. [01 Nov 2004|05:08pm]
[ mood | hopeful ]

It should be said that though I rarely update this thing, I read my friends entries every day…haha

 

What’s new with Josh? Well, I am no longer moving to Africa. I have been offered an internship through my church. I will also be attending Bible school through correspondence. These things, along with working two jobs means no time for the band, my last show was on Thursday. It was very emotional and sad, but awesome at the same time, it was such a fun show, even though it was a small crowd. Everyone should check out my friend’s band from Wisconsin, they were great to play with and are very talented. www.papercollarjoe.com

 

 

I miss you all.

Okay, me new layout is done thanks to Jordy. Thank you so much! It looks great.

 

So what’s new in Josh’s life?

 

The band has been playing shows, and writing, so a lot of my free time has gone to that. We have 2 shows this weekend, and I would love to see some friends there. Go to www.myspace.com/allthingslostco for all the details!

 

 

Also, preparing for Africa. I am about to send out support raising letters, pray for me if you think of it. It is sooo incredibly hard to stay focused on this. I just naturally want to slip into the norm. I definitely need some divine intervention.

 

That’s mainly my life right now.

 

I have felt so pushed, yet so held back lately. Out of my failures and inconsistencies, I feel stronger. I have been so let down this week by my friends. People I thought I could depend on, and maybe even mold myself after have failed me. Yet through all of this, I can honestly feel forgiveness. It pushes me to take on my identity in Christ that much more. I can see how much it hurts the people you love to lead a selfish life.

 

That’s it, I still love all of you.

 

-Josh

I wish I had a bunch of new news, but I don’t.

 

I saw my sister a couple days ago. It was awesome to see her, my brother in law, and my nephews. The sucky part was that it was only for an hour and a half and they had to get going! I hadn’t seen them in 3 years. Oh well, it happens. I will be living with them by next year, so I suppose it’s all good. My nephews have grown so effing much!

 

It is suppose to be 55 degrees on Saturday, so it will be a great day for sitting around and watching movies. YAY.

 

 

I got my free iPod, I know you are all jealous of me. I already have close to 5000 songs on it. Boo ya.

 

 

PS: The new Jimmy Eat World is FABULOUS! It is so addicting, you all are going to love it when it comes out!

 

PSS: So is the new Further Seems Forever!!

} Went to a strikethurman show to support my brothas.

 

 

} Went to church. I broke a string, so I had to play the whole service without my low E. Oh well.

} Played “Topless” ultimate Frisbee with Nate from HTC, Nick, Zack, Colin, and Nate 2.

His only crime was that he loved her... [27 Jul 2004|03:57pm]

I got my first ticket ever yesterday. It sucks, but I am not concerned about it. It was only 2 points and 72 bucks. I was going 12 over. If you ask me, the whole police system is screwed up. I have a friend that gets pulled over like once a week, but she has big boobs, and is hot, so she never gets tickets. I, on the other hand, have never gotten a ticket at the age of 21, and I don’t even get a warning. Oh well, I will keep a good attitude.

 

 

I am going to be going on a date with a girl. I am so excited, haha. We are going to go to a Jazz/Blues club downtown. I need some female input: Does this sound like a fun date? Feel free to throw in some friendly advice as well…haha I really like this girl and I don’t want to screw it up.

 

Anyway, back to work.

 

 

<3 you guys.

I am a show maniac lately. I guess I am just making up for all of the ones I have missed so far. Copeland was amazing, and so was the Evan Anthem. I was inspired from that show honestly. I am probably going to “…And a Hint of Red” tonight at Solid Grounds, just because it will probably be the last time I ever go to that venue since they are going under. I broke down and bought tickets to the Warped Tour. There are going to be soooo many annoying scene whores, but I don’t care. All will have good times.

 

I met with my pastor Ross yesterday. We ate at Samurai Sams. I seriously think he is probably the best pastor I have ever had. He is so down to earth, and doesn’t exude this “Better than you” attitude. I think the church is going to be seeing some massive growth soon.  Why? Because church is actually fun! And a place where I don’t feel judged, or contained. Okay, enough of my rant.

 

I am still working on this whole Africa thing. I am in the process of writing a letter of support to send out. Hopefully I get a good response from that. My sister wants to me to go back with her in September; I don’t really see that happening. That seems so freaking soon. However, if I can get everything together by then, I would be willing to go. It would definitely take an act of God though.

 

Anyway, I have the female version of Milton from the movie Office Space breathing down my neck. So I better get back to the grind. She is so weird.

you were not the same after that [12 Jul 2004|04:00pm]

Copeland should be great fun tonight…plus I don’t have to drive to Ft. Collins! The drive from Parker to Ft. Collins at 5:45 is not fun.

 

Anthony and Megan got married on Friday. I am excited for them. Anthony’s mom gave a toast, and ended it with “This couple will have the best sex life ever!”. I thought that was humorous. It was fun being a groomsman. Nick and I were both in the wedding, and we had each other laughing to tears in the beginning of the ceremony. We were laughing at how horrible the 4 piece orchestra was. They were so insanely out of tune! Good times.

 

Nothing is really going on this week, which is so weird. Zack’s sister will be in town, and it will be great to see her. I can’t think of anything else.

 

I love pooping.

 

PS: Check out this BMW 760li i sqw on the road today! they are so nice. Freaking V12!

...misery and mystery can often be a source of action... [18 Jun 2004|10:00am]
[ mood | crazy ]

So I guess the cat is out of the bag.

Let me digress:

I have been doing a ton of praying lately, and I have tried to keep my relationship with God as active as I possibly can. Some things that have been tugging at my heart for the past year and a half have finally surfaced. I have had this pull back towards the mission’s field ever since I left Russia. It is one of those things I could never escape. I knew that I would be going back over seas. Basically to sum it all up, In the next 6-9 months ( I am thinking January 2005) I will be moving to Africa. My sister lives there with her family. They have a huge need right now, and I feel like I can help. I will be attending a bible school while I am there, and possibly be doing an internship. Above and beyond that I will be serving as much as I can. All of the details are not set yet, but I will keep you guys updated as they are.

Last night I told the band about all of this. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. It was so incredibly emotional. They, however, support me, and are happy for me. I thank God that I have people like that in my life.

To sum it all up, give me a prayer as you think of it, I could really use it. I realize there are people on my Live Journal that are not Christian, think of me I guess. Beyond the spiritual war that is going on over there, 51% of the town I will be living in has AIDS. So there is definitely need.

Thanks.

This day is crawling by. I have gotten a lot done though, so whatever.

 

 

I have not updated this in a while. I am still living with the Tullas family. They are such great people. I love them. I can’t wait to open up my home to people when I am able.

 

We have a show tonight at the Rock House. Go to www.allthingslost.com for details.

 

There are some massive things going on in my mind right now. The time isn’t really right for me to explain. But if any of them become a reality, my life will be completely different. It is exciting and scary all at once. I just want to make sure I am in God’s will. So give me a prayer if you think of it.

 

 

Love you guys.

This weekend has been so incredibly stressful. We moved our whole house in 3 days. It sucked. Now, we are living with friends until we find a new place. So in 2 weeks, we will have to move all of this stuff again. Arghhh. I am still grateful however. I have people that I care for, and they care back. We had so much support this weekend from various friends and family.

 

I went to the “Memorial Day Sale” at Guitar Center and found some smoking deals! I got a Gibson Melody-Maker guitar for $99! It usually sells for $429. I also purchased a Korg digital 4 track recorder. The price tag on it said $300, and I got the demo unit for $79. Lastly, I bought a Wasabi Overdrive pedal. $130 dollar pedal for $25. I am so stoked! Too bad I haven’t been able to mess with this stuff yet!

 

Jeremy got married. I am glad for him he is a great guy. I think we will be better friends now that he doesn’t live with us. He is an annoying roommate, but a good friend.

 

I did other stuff this weekend, I am just too lazy to write about it.
