I Got the Summer Job!

i just received the big news from the Calvin Center for Social Research (CSR) today.  i’ll be working for them when i return from colorado in mid-july.  it’s such a great position, and i can’t wait to begin.  i’ll be handling a lot of the aesthetics and layout for various projects.  the projects can be booklets all the way to web design.  it’ll be a great way for me to touch up my design skills and expand into new territory.  i have never designed a booklet before, so i’m psyched to make one.  the closest thing i’ve made is a camp pamphlet, and that was a simple black and white job.  now i’ll get to design statistical booklets, which will go straight into the hands of the CSR’s clients.  and there may be some web projects i can work on, which would be great practice if i ever work with web developers.  they can develop all the code, and i can pretty it up in a nice layout.  ah, this is so exciting, i can’t wait to start!

VROOoooOOOooom

i did my first bit of driving in america today.  since i got my permit a few months ago for identification purposes (i needed it to get a cell phone), i havent really thought about driving too much.  i studied to take the written test to get my permit, and since i’m over 18, i just needed to pass the test.  with my permit, i could drive as long as there was a licensed adult in the car with me.

Summer Hides Around the Corner

A Poem for Summer
oh glorious summer, i cannot wait for thee. 
thou art the essence of my existence (besides Jesus) and the fuel that drives my heart.
what beauty, how captivating!
your breath draws me towards you
as if i were enraptured by a golden thread
which guides me towards your heart.
oh glorious summer, i cannot wait for thee.

Praise Break


What a beautiful evening to worship God on!

there is something refreshing about music worship outdoors on a warm evening under the full moon.  every week on wednesday, the Barnabas team organizes a music worship evening with some people on our dorm.  they plan out the songs, gather up the instrumentalists, and then practice for the weekly event.
