Hey guys, just to let you know it has been tough getting used to living in the dorm again. do you know they have things called quiet hours, which start at 10pm, that means no playing guitar late at night like i used to at the BCM. there is one secret though after 10 i use the vox amplug (thanks claude for buying it for me for christmas). it is a headphone amp that sounds almost just like the real thing. so i just plug in at the end of my pedalboard and if i want to add my ipod and play as loud as i want!

Hey guys for the past few weeks i have been helping out element church setting up their new warehouse, building the stage, and installing the sound equipment all to get ready for the first service. yesterday was practice service, we are going to do two, and i have to say it went quite well. the service flowed really well, Bobby did a great job speaking and the band sounded great. it looked like over a hundred people there. one other cool thing was most of the people are our age and a lot of the married too. so we fit right in. somehow i managed to get the privilege of playing keyboard too. sorry the photo didn't turn out very well.

nobody likes it, but you can't live without or at least they won't let you drive without it. since janelle and just got married we had to combine car insurance. she already had her own plan so we figured that we would just call and add me no problem. so after about and hour of talking we have a whopping $1700 premium for 6 months (eventually got it down to $1339, thanks jason for haggling tactics).
this morning usaa calls and offer their services, now i have bargaining power. to make a long story short we are down to about $900. this is still what we would pay for the whole year in NC, but to protect us from crazy FL drivers (like Sheila) this will do.
I save $800 a year by switching from Geico.

hey guys i am here in the marshall center at usf, which is equivalent to mendon hall at ecu. i have been living for the little things this week. if you don't know what i mean, i have so little to do during the day if there is one thing planned for that day i am really excited. i have been spending a lot of time with the guitar and youtube, you can really learn a lot there. and i ride my bike for hobby too.
on monday i had a job interview with guitar center. it went good, but not as good as i would have liked it, but i wouldn't be surprised if i get the job. he said he would call later this week if i was hired. the position that i applied for was accessory sales, which means i sell pedals and guitar strings and i definitely know a lot about those so i should be fine. talk to you later.
