It's in the past

I've been sifting around my old xanga site for inspiration. The finds are fascinating. Not only was I a more dedicated blogger back then, I was more introspective, believing that one day I could truly find what it means to be "real," and quoted more Breakfast at Tiffany's. I had more online friends, filled out more online surveys, knew more little-known bands (who eventually left me cold, COPELAND!), had more interesting interests, wore a bigger nose ring, wanted to find a Pentecostal-Anabaptist-Orthodox church, wrote more poetry, loved sociology more, prayed everyday for God to take my apathy, and I was way more into the "tea-music-philosophy" crowd. There was more pain and emo suffering, some of which seems a bit silly now, and I was making mistakes right and left and didn't even know it. Oh, it was wonderful :-)
I think I've gotten kind of boring, but seriously when did I have time to be that interesting??? I'm gonna try to get back into some it. The things I wrote back then are absolutely fascinating to me. It's like a museum of... me :-)

So,

here's a list from Saturday, September 17, 2005

Reasons why my dad is pretty much the coolest person ever:

1. He read a book on the history of coffee
2. His music- everything from the who & jim croce to yo yo ma & vanessa mae
3. He learned Chinese (and now Russian) to be better at his job
4. He's got a pretty cool job
5. He grew a beard look more Chinese in a play
6. He's pretty much a genius and knows something about everything
7. Two words... New York
8. He's really good at getting upgrades in hotels, airplanes, and boats... for freeeeee
9. Let's face it, he's a pretty financially secure guy and that's something I can't help admiring in a man
10. The whole dragging me overseas thing... I really liked it.
11. Starbucks is his currency of repentance

And another thing... This would have been interesting to take before taking Historic Christian Belief and the semester in Russia
