So, like Amber's blogs and old school Vlogbrothers videos, this post comes to you in multiple parts.
Same old, same old, I guess. I'm working part time at Beijing Tokyo and not hating it. I'll be working at Target soon, though, as a seasonal cashier or sales floor person or something. I like Target. I want all their scarves, and soon I'll have access to employee discounts!
Also, I'm still rehearsing for The Giver, which is lots of fun. I love theater, you guys. Just being a part of how it all comes together is thrilling, and I love to watch people act. Our cast is good. It's gonna be a good show. My children are adorable!
On another note, Amy has been confirmed alive. I asked her mom today, and apparently she's very busy with school but she's having a good time. I have a number where you can call her in China, too. If anyone's interested in calling mega-long-distance, message me on facebook for the number.
So I'm reading a couple of books that have been suggested to me, and they're both amazing. The first is Love Does by Bob Goff. Shelby tried to get me to read this book over a year ago, and I've just now gotten around to it. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?! IT'S AMAZING! It's nonfiction, Christian inspirational awesomeness! Bob Goff basically just tells some of the really crazy, unconventional things he's done in life and how his experiences have pointed him to Christ. And it's the most upbeat, motivating, and freeing Christian book I've ever read. There are important implications without guilt. It really drives home the point that God gives us passions and wants us to live whimsical, unconventional, bold lives. It's wonderful and just pure fun.
The second book I'm reading is We Were Liars by E. Lockheart, recommended by Amber. I just started it last night, and I really couldn't put it down. It's a fast-paced, compelling read. I'm not terribly far along yet, because I had to sleep and work and things, but I'll finish it soon, Amber. Then we can talk about how great it is.
So I'm sure all of you have heard by now, but Jill and I are trying to move to Ireland in the beginning of 2015, Lord willing. London is also on the table if we can find internships, but I'm not sure about that one. Ireland, though. We could live in Ireland next year. Come visit! We'll travel the world together.
Yep. That's what I said. You have homework. I kind of refuse to let this blog die, so I've come up with a list of questions for you to answer in your next blog posts. I mean, half the effort of blogging is coming up with something to say, right? So I've really done the work for you. Just answer these random questions and viola! Instant blog post!
1. What is your earliest memory?
2. Tell me about your most embarrassing haircut (bonus points if you have pictures!).
3. If you could only eat one fruit for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
4. What books have impacted your life and why?
5. If you had to be famous for something, what would it be?
6. Name three places you want to go before you die.
7. What's your favorite song at the moment?
8. If you got a tattoo, what would it be and where?
9. Tangled or Frozen?
Remember how that was going to be a thing? Woops.
Anyway, this week's Theatre Thursday video is...wait for it...from Les Mis. Okay, I'll stop. But really, you just need to experience this clip from a London 2008 production. If you want the short version, skip to Drink With Me at 5:55 and watch to the end. Just...enjoy. You'll understand when you see/hear Marius and his lonely soul. It cracks me up every time.
Anyway...there's that. So, have a good week. Actually blog this time. Answer my questions! I'm looking forward to reading your posts! :)
