Wow! How long has it been since I've done an honest post on here? Over a year by my last look. Longer if you consider when the last time I updated on what's going on in my life. It seems like everyone and everything's moved to facebook. For those that haven't found me over there, feel free to shoot me a message and if you're someone I deem respectable, I'll send you a link to add me over there.
So here's an update on everything. I'm still working as a substitute teacher, but I'm looking at potentially changing careers. The teaching industry isn't exactly pretty right now. So I'm looking into moving into mobile software development. I was recently awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for stuff I've done with Windows Phone 7. So mobile software is something I've been working with quite a bit lately.
I have switched churches. I'm now at Toledo Baptist Temple. We're actually looking at moving and recently bought land a few miles up the road from our current location. And that's just one project we're working on. Here are a few others:
-Website and internet presence. We're working on putting together a website, a series of videos (here's our first one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7VjeZ3l0WA), and a podcast. I'm involved in a lot of this and the production of the podcast falls on me. We cut a pilot, but the audio was so poor, we're not publishing it. Once Brett (who I do the show with) is back from Hungary, we'll cut another episode. I'll post a link to the website when it's done as well as a link to subscribe to the podcast once we get that rolling.
-Home school co-op. We're having a couple exploratory meetings regarding homeschooling. We've got a few people interested in this option and we're looking at the feasibility of doing a home schooling co-op. At first, I wasn't sure of the idea. But the more I think about it, the more I think we're positioned to pull it off. We've got a lot of teachers in our church and we could make it happen. I'll be interested in seeing how it works out and I look forward to possibly being a part of it. It will be nice because it'll allow me to keep teaching, even if I do switch careers.
-The reason Brett's in Hungary. Long story short, we're going to be possibly running a Bible Camp over there for orphans. I'm still learning all the details, but it's a great possibility.
On a personal bit, I was recently diagnosed with cancer. This was back in January. It was a bit unnerving. But I was lucky and we caught it quite early. After a surgery to remove the tumor and a couple rounds of chemo, the cancer is now in remission. I'm sure God had a play in all of that.
Anyways, I wanted to keep this short because it's late and I could really ramble on FOREVER if I let myself. Let me know if anyone out there in xanga-world is still alive.
