We just had a floor talk in the lobby about who we are in Christ. What our identity in Christ is. I’m really glad I skipped doing my design homework, it was rather enlightening. I realized something about myself that I’m now looking to change, because I can see it needs changing. I came in late because I had never seen the “ToMacco” Simpson’s episode, so I watched that. But when I came in, they were discussing the individualistic attitudes in our country and I was thinking about how I like community and friends and such, but then Ryan made a comment about how he doesn’t like to be a burden to other people. I think the same way, but had never thought of that as a bad thing. I really enjoy doing things for other people, helping people out and such, but I’m really hesitant to take things from people or ask things of people, because I don’t want to be a burden to other people. Whether that be from pride or be from wanting to be self-sufficient I’m not sure, but it isn’t good either way. I don’t really even like getting compliments on stuff I do. I think some of it has to do with the correct assumption that some people don’t want to help other people out, but I think the majority is me being stubborn, or maybe even embarrased.
I thought about dating too. I think that its possible people date so much and so often is because it is so difficult to to be individual and we desire to have someone so close. My parents and others talk about group dating and stuff, I think they are kind of on to somethinig. I don’t like dating at all, but I really enjoy hanging out. I think the more I hang out with friends, the less I want to a ‘significant other’. I still want one sometime in the future, and would possibly like to know now so I at least don’t have to worry about it. But I’ve got great friends, so ya’ll better stick around so I don’t start dating.
I got to hang out with Jen Buck and Phil and Faith and Dan and Pheobe and Steve and James after the excellent symphonic concert tonight. I saw more pictures of Jen Buck with long hair. That’s always a good time.
My roomate is playing XBOX live(Internet like for those who don’t know) and he was racing a guy from Vancouver, and my roomate didn’t know where that was, and I don’t know where it is off-hand either. But the guy didn’t know where Chicago was. That is really strange to think about how usual something is for us, and they don’t know. Why should I think that someone in Canada should know where Chicago is if I don’t even know where Vancouver is?
