News So Far

  /   Sunday July 17, 2005  

Well, I guess I should write just to let you know I’m still alive. Here’s what I have going:

I have eleven days of “youth” remaining. I turn 30 on July 28th. I am not looking forward to this. I guess I’m bothered by the fact that I am the age that I am but still single and still not sure if what I am doing is what I should be. I seem to find myself wanting to try everything multimedia and computer-related that I can get my hands on, and I also like to learn more theology. Yet, my job is actually in health care. Then again, my job as a pharmacist pays enough that I can afford all this nice equipment and software, which I can then make a gift out of for people who need it. Then again, I can’t seem to find all the right opportunities to use what I have.

I have not heard from the Bishop yet regarding my letter. I guess I am not going to anytime soon. I will move on with this if I ever get the time, and I really need to make time for it.

I found out that one can buy the audio CD set of the Bible Timeline Seminar for only $150. So, I did this. I hope it will be here next week. I just wish I could get it on MP3, WMA, or some other electronic format. It’s very convenient these days to be able to put stuff on my iPod. Before I know it, though, I’ll need a bigger player and hard drive. I never thought I’d get into this the way that I have. In fact, I want to do some talks myself and convert them to these formats. Then I could have them to give or even sell to others. I could have my own podcast on Liberated Syndication, but where would I find the time to keep it up? You can see how I’ve done keeping up this blog lately.

I was going through small group charism discernment program by the Catherine of Siena Institute, but I’ve had to drop it because I’ve had way too much going on. I am going to have to spend some time soon doing some real work on stuff that I have enjoyed doing.

For a long time, my computer’s 40 GB hard drive seemed like more than I could ever use in one lifetime. However, I have now managed to use 28 GB of it with multimedia stuff and software. I must find another solution. Besides, my video software runs way too slow on this machine. Does anyone have any ideas? Maybe I need another external hard drive for my multimedia. Any suggestions? Then again, I have so many things hooked up into this machine I’m afraid it has all it can take.

My place is an absolute mess. I have all my stuff all over this office space. My other areas aren’t so bad, but I’m running out of room. I was going to clean it up this weekend, but I decided to finish my audio work instead. Now, the audio is almost done. I adopted a policy some time ago that I would not do this work on Sunday so that I could dedicate it to the Lord, so it will be this week or next weekend that I do all this.

Does this sound like a random mess? Well, that’s my life. However, some things are looking up. This Thursday is Burrito night with some friends. At some point, we are going to play Poker, and we have named it our “Poker and Papacy” night. All of us in this group are Catholic converts. We aren’t doing much gambling ($5 towards food and “the pot” for the winner), but we will have fun. Just this morning, another friend e-mailed me saying that several from the Frassati Society want to take me out for my birthday. I was so glad to get that e-mail, and I jumped at the chance.
