ok, ok. you got me

So I have a confession to make. As some of you may have suspected, it was not I who wrote those super happy 13 year old girly blogs. Now Im going to go out on a limb and be honest with you; I was going through a hard time, blogging just wasn’t the same any more. I had no desire to “write down” my thoughts or “share” my emotions. No. so what did I do? I got a YWAM-er named Amy (the same Amy referenced by as “fat Amy” in previous posts) to relieve me of my blog-bound duty to write an entry. I figured that an odd entry by an unknown person was better then no entry at all. But now you have brent, in the flesh fully at his fingertips typing a rare but delightful entry. Good on you.

The occasion for such a post? The end of my time at Northstar is at hand. But in 5 short hours I will be embarking on a 12 hour train ride to Sendai, a place in the north of Japan where I will join a family reunion on the beach. Just like old times. This place in Sendai is literally the only thing in my life that hasn’t changed since I was a kid so its nice to go there and feel at home…or feel something. However, owing to the convenient lack of internet at this place up north I will not be able to post until…September some time, most likely. So until then my friends I bid you love, peace, and hippies rain down upon you like salmon falling lightly in the heavens, like frogs croaking in a pond by moonlight, like a joyous ocean wave rebounding against the beach-the mortal enemy.

And Northstar? Great. I should tell you about it sometime. www.ridenorthstar.com

yay. i missed you. i serioulsy hope you can find time to hang out in the fall. allison and shreck are coming up to van. i think it's about time for another 3.99 breakfast or whatever that was with janice. . . honest i thought you'd gone of the deep end or that someone totally not you was writting...which turned out to be true. for this i am glad. anyways i think i should stop writting you a novel, seeing as you won't get this for a couple weeks and it's not making much sense. but i do hope you have a rad time with the fam. and that i will get to talk to you soon.

Oh, it's so glad to have you back. I no longer want to shoot myself half way through reading one of your posts. Have a ton of fun up North and I will pray for your travells back. You have already come up more than once since I've been here at Wheaton with Jimmy and Justin, we always say how much we love you and how much we wish you were here. Love you Brenty,
sister Pam

have fun, brent. i wish i had crazy people around to write blogs for me when i dont feel like it. you must have a much more deep-seeded sense of obligation towards it than i do. im heading north sometime this year, i've decided..."this year" meaning sometime within the next 12 months...not meaning sometime before the end of 2006. i havent been in a plane for almost a year and a half. i MAY not be able to quote a whole Air Safety Regulations speech anymore, complete with hand motions. that is a part of my identity.

Oh! I miss you! Oh sadness in my heart. So, Story: I went to a friend's party (from church) the other day in Hollywood Hills, her name is Kate Hodges and her husband is David...happend to find out way later that he was like in Evanescence as like the lead guy and songwriter or something...strange things I find out...my friends are famous, lol! You must visit me when you come back to this side of the world, yes? : )I wish I was at Takayama right now...I haven't been there for waaaaayyy too long~! We should all take that night trip to the lighthouse and hide from police cars again or take your fantastic HMS Bob out on the shining waters once more...someday, someday my friend! ; )

Jimmy said...

heidi said...
