Ramblings and Reinterations.........

Hello all,

Okay, well I guess it's finally time that I update this thing. Not that I'm going to make any of the proverbial promises to maintain it this time or anything like that. Well, let's see. I'm still at Starbucks. I'm coming up on a year and a half. Eek, I honestly can't believe I've been there that long. It's has it's ups and downs, but I love my customers and my fellow baristas. That's work. School is coming along nicely. I've been able, by the complete Grace of God, to raise my overall G.P.A. to somewhere around 2.21. Which at least got me off of academic probation. My Major G.P.A. is a 3.01 which is incredible considering my last major GPA was 0.0000...something. And again, by the complete Grace of God has this happened! Speaking of school, I have been talking with my pastor into possibly getting an internship for the next fall and I've already started the application process for seminary.

As far as my love life goes, it sucks as usual. Just kidding. God has given me the most incredible blessing in one Ms. Jennifer. There's a lot of days that I wonder why she's still here. But, it's honestly I've learned to stop asking dumb questions like that. On June 1st, the most wonderful love of my life is taking off for Tucson. I'm really quite at an impass because I know that she is going for God's glory to go on a mission's trip, but I don't know what I'm going to do when she leaves. She was gone for one week this past semester to DC, which was really unfair, but even in that one week...it felt like a lifetime. I guess the most important thing to remember was that distance is just something of the mind. It's really odd that I keep joking around about having the freedom that she'd be gone, but I know that my cell phone bill is going to sky rocket through the roof. She might be right...I might be masacistic.

Good night, good afternoon, good morning.

Cheers.

Hello all,

Oh the journey that I have been on. The Jennifer McCann soujourn seems to be at an end. She's found her new Buzz Lightyear and I'm stuck up on the shelf. Sorry, to be so melodramatic, but then again it's par for the course. Good news, though. I am now an official student of UWF. After all the hurdles and hoopla of forms and phone calls, they finally approved my financial aid. All glory be to God for this one. Honestly, it was His intervention that got this done. Even after all the hoops I jumped through for them last semester, they decided to make jump through all the sames ones, plus some new ones. Anywho, the fiasco is over and now I can concentrate on my studies. This semester will definitely be a mind opening experience. I've always prided myself on being an open minded person, but some of my professors are, well, ludicrous. Actually, it's just one. I am beginning to hypothesize that he's doing it to force us out of our comfortable theology and really make it ours. But to get back to the love life. I am tired of doing the chasing....but then again......


Good night, good morning, good afternoon,

Cheers,
Docwabbit

P.S.- Nat, we're of the same cloth what else would it have been?.....

Weathering the Storm....

Hello all,

I know this seems like probably the oddest time to update my journal, but then again when i have i ever done anything normal? I am safe from Hurricaine Ivan. My two friends Cassie and Jennifer drove to Shreiveport, LA and have been here for the pass three days. It's still all very surreal to me that all of this has actually happened. I keep seeing the pictures of a town I complained about constantly and find myself missing it almost. Maybe i have finally become institutionalized, or maybe it's just that Pensacola is the only place of "home" I've had. We still haven't officially decided if we are going back tomorrow. I'm sure we will, but the traffic is going to be quite difficult. None of us really want to go back to no power and no running water, but then again we're running out of money, and more importantly, their families are there. Speaking of my two travel companions... I am very blessed to have my two companions with me. It's a blessing to have the emotional stability. As far as Jen goes though, I find myself playing the delicate dance of flirt and retract. My feelings for her seem to be at a stand still. Not that i've stoppped falling for her, it's just that I have to keep them at bay because of the trip. I find myself daydreaming about sweeping her into my arms and just holding her. Other times she just looks right through me and all my thoughts just drip away. I can't explain it. I mean yes, there are things that remind me of Tracie in her. BUT, there's more to her something so wildly and incredibly beautiful that I try to find any and every excuse I can to just be in her presence. But none of this can I make her privy to. My feelings and emotions I must sacrifice so that she can find herself in God. So here we are again, same song, just a different verse........I feel it build up inside of me. All these, not these, just one, the one emotion that i can't let out and i begin to weep on the inside. It yells, it screams, it longs from the very depth of every longing and desire man has ever uttered. It burns to be let out. An all consuming fire that burns through and chafes anyother emotion. I stare at the keys of the keyboard. The emotion churning and the words not expressive enough.

Good night, good morning, good afternoon,

Cheers,
Docwabbit

You are humble, gracious, kind and extremely Christ-like. You believe in the bible as your law, but read it in its original language. Perhaps you're not a scholar, but you're not an armature either. You normally don't feel church is acceptable for your form of worship, and if anyone believes different from you, you might try to learn something from them.

Longings and dreams of unfilled...........

Hello all,

As what happens every time I watch this movie, I tap into the vast resources of my hopeless romanticism.  I have again watched Before Sunrise.  This film has this uncanny ability to profess everything I believe and strive for in love.  In the way that Austen's book Pride and Prejudice looked at marriage, Linklater's movie capitalizes on the emotions that both propel and mystify love.  I highly sugest to anyone, be it, if they can find a copy, to rent it.  I found this movie two years ago and have loved it ever since.  Come to think of it, I believe this is the second time that I have written about this movie.  Much to my chagrin, after nine years they have finally produced a sequel.  Which, is kind of unheard of, considering that this was an independent film.  Although it stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy,  I don't think it fared well in the box offices.  But with it's release to DVD in 1998 or 1997(I don't remember which), fans have been falling in love with the story and has quite a following now.  To make a long story short, I have been wating to see this sequel since I heard of its production a year ago.  Then I come to find out that it won't be a widespread release, and me being stuck in the wonderful Pensacola,Fl yeah, not much of an artsy film area.  Shame really.  I go to imdb.com and look up where the closet theater is playing it.  and for two weeks the closet was about 6 hours from here.  And yes, as pathetic as it is to drive roundtrip 12 hours just to see one movie, i had seriously considered it.  Fortunately, God smiled upon me and the movie was released in New Orleans, which is a little over three hours from here.  And tomorrow. I embark on my journey.  Plus, my roomies are coming.  Saturday, which is actually today now, is the first day off that we have had collectively in quite some time.  So we figured we should go on a road trip somewhere.  Now I get the best of both worlds.  Not only do I great to see the sequel to one of my favorite movies, but I get to go on a road trip with my two best friends.  And now, I think it's time for sleep.  I bid you all a fond farewell, and hope that your search for love is never endless.....

Good night, Good morning, Good afternoon

Cheers,
Docwabbit

Fumations and frustrations

Hello all,

All right, so maybe fumations is not a word, but then again I have never did refute that i suffer from malapropisms.  Sorry, I'm steaming, hehe an unintentional pun i love it when that happens, a bit from my recent visit to the local Barnes and Noble.  I decided to throw caution to the wind and get a doppio esspresso from their version of Starbucks.  Now before I continue, do remember that even inspite of me working for Starbucks I do have my discrepncies with the company.  It's the cafe itself that I love working for.  With that in mind, honestly, I don't think i'll go into it.  It's better for my Christian witness that i just let it go.  But i am beginning to question the term of Southern Hospitality and more specifically the definition of the word "tact" and wheter or not the general southern population understands the denotation of the word.  And know I think I have effectively used up my "big" word usage for the day.  UGH.  Ok I'm done now.  To update on all the other news.  Elizabeth and I are for what seems to be now are officially over.  Remaing friends yes, but then again doesn't everybody say that after a breakup?  I was fortunate this time around for I could see it coming.  Don't get me wrong, I wish things were different.  I loved that she had some kind of genuine sweetness about her.  Honestly, she hadn't really had the life experiences like I've had to tarnish her.  She was this wonderful new freshness, that not to sound trite, was quite refreshing.  No one had ruined her heart.  I don't know...............Life is life and love is love, but where will the ever intersect? 


Good night, good morning, good afternoon,

Cheers,
Docwabbit

confused and unbeknowingly lonely

Hello all,

I'm writing this because honestly, i'm hoping that this is somehow theraputically soothing. And of course please excuse any and all split infinitives. I'm in some kind of a rut. I feel like i'm doing the same thing over and over again. And yes, I know the perverbial answer that i'm the one in control of it. But, the problem is, I don't know what i want to do. I hate it when i get exestential like this. Alright, so i guess i'm officially dating Elizabeth now. Which in turn i have mixed emotions about. She still lives at home, which means curfew, yada yada yada. She's a great girl, beautiful and everything. I just don't know how long i can deal with it. I know it's sounds terribly harsh of me. But i mean, crimeny, she's been grounded for the last two weeks. There's just a lot of times that I notice the difference in age between us. And it's not really the age, it's the difference in life experience. Not maturity, just the whole "we're in two different places in our lives." thing. Yeah, yeah, i know this sounds awfully familiar. How did i let myself get into this again? Now, there are times when it's really cool to be with Elizabeth and she definitely is the diamond in the rough. I just don't know. To be completely honest, something just seems to be missing. And I can't put my finger on it. And that is what's bugging the heck out of me. In the midst of all of this debaucle, I find myself chasing after someone else. Well, i don't know if it's actually chasing. It'll probably turn out to be nothing. But i got the phone number of another customer from work. And she's actually the president of the local Young Republicans chapter. Yeah, i know someone our age politically active? There's some big activity for next saturday that i'm going to show up at. So i guess i'll find out then. In the mean time what the heck do i do about Elizabeth. I have to find out if i'm falling for her, or am I falling for the idea of having someone to fall for. And this is the perpetual dilemma that I always find myself in. I think i should have the "doogie howser" theme music playing right now. Yeah, ok, that made me feel better. Well, thanks for listening or actually thanks for reading?
Until next time.......

Good afternoon, good night, good morning


Cheers,
Docwabbit

confused and unabated

Hello all,

Alright I too would like to get some feedback on this. And as much as I'd hope you all would be nice about it please be honest. Well, tonight was my second date with Elizabeth. We went and saw "The Day After Tomorrow". Wonderful effects, decent plot line. But that's not what i'm here to talk about. What I'm here to talk about is that now with the second date finished. I still haven't kissed her. It's not that she's not beautiful or great to be around. It's just that when a moment for it comes along the thirteen year old boy in me comes out and i get nervous. There we are sitting in the car and i'm about to walk her to her car and yeah. I don't know why i put up such a big deal about it. But it's the first kiss, i'm mean is the one you remember. All the others save a marriage kiss, get blended away. But you always remember the first kiss. No matter how bad the relationship went you always remember that one. So I don't necessarily want to just do it and get it over with, because then you're just breezing by something important. I know I realize then i'm ranting about this like well, a 13 year old girl. Which in turn does not help me any. Any thoughts would be great.

Good morning, good night, good afternoon

Cheers,
Docwabbit
