Man, I’ve really been slacking on my LiveJournal. Well, the good news is that I haven’t died.
Actually, I have A LOT of good news. I went to the dentist for the first time in a really long time and had NO cavities! That’s a first.
Also, I reached 20% of my support goal this month!
And…well, I guess that’s it.
But the other thing bothering me right now is the fact that my body is starting to tell me that I’m overworked and stressed. My body is physically telling me that I’ve got too much going on but my time card doesn’t show it. I’ve been praying for God to show me places where I need to do more and there isn’t much more I can do.
I need to find out what my body is stressed about.
That’s right baby! I finally, FINALLY, bought a domain name. www.mikesoh.us
I’m pretty excited about it. I may actually change it to mikesoh.com but we’ll see. It was too expensive (for private registration) so I went with .us
nothing is there yet but slowly…it will get there. I’m hoping to replace twentyfifteen.tripod.com with it.
So at 2 PM today I get a phone call from a friend of a friend telling me that her friend needs to go to the hospital but won’t go.
So I go there, made a decision that she needs to go in…and I only got back from the hospital at 9:30 PM. It was the longest I’ve every stayed in an emergency room! I couldn’t believe it.
It was great, though, to catch up with a friend that I hadn’t seen in two weeks but it was just so frustrating just waiting for seven and a half hours only to get back “Chest pains with unknown cause.”
Grr…I’ve decided I’m never going to that hospital again.
Last week, I ran out of names of people that I was going to contact to raise support. Jeff, GCM, and I all knew that this was my greatest weakness. And it happened.
But a lot of other cool things happened last week too. A good friend I made through the ombudsman office became a partner with me along with another good friend as well. While I could have been discouraged that I didn’t meet my weekly goal, I felt like God really provided me with a lot of appointments this week.
This week, I have, like 12-13 appointments. I’m really excited about it!
You may be asking yourself, “How can I help?”
Well, I’m glad you asked. If you’re interested in helping me out financially, please shoot me an e-mail and let me know. I can totally hook-you-up!
But, in the mean time, get yourself over to my web site and try out my amazon.com linkage! Up to 10% of your purchase can go toward funding my ministry at Maryland!
Thanks to everyone who is supporting me!
Side note: You may be wondering why I made two different entries for the same day. Well, for one, I felt like it. Second, I really like using this tagging thing and want to make it as accurate as possible. So, yeah.
My other frog died today. I’m guessing that there was something airborne that made them sick because they became very lethargic.
I’m going to save up for a cockatiel I think…its a lot of money and a lot harder to take care of then a frog. We’ll see…
“What, me worry?”
Does it upset anyone else that politics are just getting stranger and more…stupid every day? I love how a roll of toilet paper is worth more now than the constitution now. And of course, only people over 25ish would even get the reference to Alfred E. Neuman.
BTW, has anyone notified Hillary that she just trampled on a registered trademark and could be sued for using it?
Ah…I guess you got to love being rich.
Oh poor froggie…we hardly knew yet…then again, you weren’t that vocal on things…
I’ll miss you.
Okay, these links below won’t stay on the topic. I’ve attempted to get the links to the audio files so that you can listen to the conversations:
Finding Jesus on the Streets, Part 1 (RealAudio)
Finding Jesus on the Streets, Part 2 (RealAudio)
These are two very powerful interviews with a man named Mike Yankoski. For 6 months, he and a complete stranger went out to several major cities to be homeless. Really homeless. What started as a social experiment turned into a desperate struggle for life. After listening to these stories, I had to evaluate the way I treat the poor and homeless.
They also wrote a book called Under The Overpass about their experience.
Just added it to my wishlist!
