Why was Jesus baptized? Genesis 1:1-5 Psalm 29 Acts 19:1-7 Mark 1:4-11 While I was a student at Greenville College, my favorite classes were the ones I took taught by Dr. Scott Neumann of the History department. Neumann’s teaching style is right up my alley because it combines both the auditory and visual learning methods […]

So I started at Starbucks on Monday. It’s part-time, on top of the full-time job at True. Yeah, it’s about 60 hrs a week. I worked Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night, although I’m mostly just reading/learning the processes for things. Yesterday I made some Fraps and today I swept and mopped. Other than that, just […]

I’ve been watching a lot of Spanish language movies lately (amores perros, next up volver, then y tu mama tambien, then pan’s labyrinth.) It makes me want to pick the language up again. Well, I guess learn it, as I only remember the questions words, and numbers and stuff. I think I want to learn […]

Remember when we were all in school, pursing studies, reading books, discussing ideas and all that? I do, I miss it so much. I feel so dumb sometimes. Especially reading things I felt like I understood a year ago that I now scratch my head over. And when I write. I try to write in […]

Okay, number one I believe in absolute truth. I believe it exists and is represented in nature. While I am still in doubt (or faith, depending on your perspective) of whether or not we can actually know this truth or not, whether we can know “the thing itself” of Nietzsche would say, I believe it […]
reality is only something that can be pointed to. our words are only a representation of the reality we perceive which itself isn’t objective, but subjective. our understanding of that subjective perception is limited by our finite knowledge of the world, creation, God… how then can we even attempt to reach the otherwordly? how truly […]
I’m still learning so much about love and how complete is my inability to put into practice what I learn.

(time isn’t sure yet): Attend WWII class 5pm-8pm: Chill 8pm-2am: Studio Then sleep till work […]
1st semester senior year is over. Which means that after interterm, I have one semester left in college. That is crazy.
Final paper I wrote for Music History. Arnold Schoenberg: Pierrot Lunaire Opus 21 With the turn of the twentieth century, modern musical composition began to stretch the boundaries of tonality as Wagner, Brahms and Strauss had defined it in the late 1800’s.
