You can scream between the walls all you want, but silent screams canít be heard. Thereís a great schism between thoughts, thoughts only nanoseconds apart. Each flood brings a torrent of new emotional details, which circumvent any logical reasoning, but manifest themselves into an aggregate of perplexity. The strength to transcend the throes of my own complex has eschewed me. I become conscientious after the fact far too frequently.

Happy late birthday to me! Sunday I turned 21. I thought it was ironic that Dr. Vines did a sermon against alcohol on my 21st birthday. If I had any doubts about getting wasted Sunday night, I didnít after that, lol. Itís been a while since I posted last. All last week I was at camp. Monday I slept in until eight (oh boy that felt good) and then packed, went to class, then drove to camp at Lake Yale. It took me an hour and 58 minutes to get there from UNF. It was really nice having a car to drive at camp. Pretty much every night I gave Tiffany and Genny and some other girls rides from the girlís camp to the main service, which was good, because it was raining pretty bad a couple days. I had a good group of kids in my cabin. We had a lot of fun. We took road trips to Wal-Mart a couple of times. On an awesome note, there was this one guy in my cabin, Hunter, who doesnít go to our church, but on Tuesday morning he prayed to receive Christ. How awesome is that?! Then he got baptized at camp too. After camp was over, we came home, and this time my brother rode with me. Saturday I spent working on remodeling the bathroom, putting up tile on the ceiling and the walls. Fun stuff, NOT. I told my parents that I wanted to get a new CD player for my car, since my old one is old and worn out (It skips a lot and wonít play half of my CDs) so my parents instead decided to play a game with me. They wrote out five different monetary amounts ($100, $150, $200, $250, and $300) and I had to randomly guess a letter. Then they would give me that much towards the stereo. Well, I guessed the one that was $250. I went up to Best Buy and found the one I wanted (it was $270) and bought it. Long story short, they spent 3 hours installing it on Sunday and it still doesnít work right. Plus, I had to buy $100 in stupid attachments. Morons. Iím taking it back up there today and making them fix it, or give me back every penny that I spent. This morning I got up, and I found two checks for me on the counter. One was for $250. I thought that was the one for the radio, but it wasnít. At the bottom on the check it said it was for my Mexico trip. Sweet. I picked it up, and there was the radio check underneath that. My parents gave me $300 for that. Wow. So basically they just gave me $550. Thatís going to really help out, since I owe about $1,500. I love my parents. I guess once a year they do something crazy like that. Wednesday I have my last summer final exam. Thursday I am getting the wisdom teeth out. Saturday Iím going to Mexico. Yeah, Iím keeping busy. Thank you guys who remembered my birthday! I got jumbo school supplies and some SWEET Lego sets from Laura, cookies (yum yum) and a home-made pop-up card from Tiffany, A full tank of gas from my brother, the $300 from my parents, Wild at Heart from Danny, and a card from Aimee. You guys rock!

Peeling back the fingernail
So I peeled back my fingernail by ramming it into a door jam yesterday. I also jammed my thumb. It's not fun. It's all Danny's fault because I was running from the shower to answer my phone when he called, and when i stepped in the hall, my feet slid forward and the rest of me went to the ground and the doorjam. Today Danny came over after church, so him and I and my brother took three computers and then took a pick axe, a mallet, a sledgehammer, a shovel, and a metal sign pole, and we attacked the computers. It was wicked awesome. I had the smart idea of taking a mortar and shoving it in the power supply of one of the computers. Needless to say, we had fun with it. Our next goal is to build a cannon. Sometime this week I'm going to build my own fireworks too. I just need to find a place that sells fuses...

It's 10:30PM, Sautrday night. Thursday I got up at 5:30AM, went to bed at 1:00AM Friday morning, got up at 5:30AM Friday morning, and I haven't been to sleep since. I broke my old record of 40 hours tonight, as of right now I've been up for 41 hours. Yee haw, I'll write more about my adventures later, after I get some much needed sleep!

I'm sittng at work, "backing up files on my work computer", and to keep my hands busy, I'm ripping the padding out of my shoes. Now my left shoe is just stupid-looking. I think it's time to go buy some more since I just ruined these. I got two new CD's. Switchfoot's "New Way To Be Human" and a CD I found called "Within a Mile of Home" by a group I've never heard of, Flogging Molly. It's interesting music though. Maybe I should rip up my other shoe, just for uniformity...
