Heir to the President?

I love this pic.

On a separate note, here’s an interesting article in the Economist, about heightened creativity in those who have lived or are living abroad.

White Man


“White Man,” by The Michael Gungor Band.

U2 – Magnificent

In my opinion, easily one of U2’s greatest songs.

Magnificent
Oh, magnificent



I was born,
I was born to be with you 

In this space and time

After that and ever after
I haven’t had a clue


Only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart
Black and blue



Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


I was born
I was born to sing for you 

I didn’t have a choice
But to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice
From the womb my first cry
It was a joyful noise
Oh, oh

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love can heal such a scar


Justified till we die
You and I will magnify

Oh, the magnificent

Magnificent

Only love
Only love can leave such a mark

But only love
Only love unites our hearts



Justified till we die
You and I will magnify
Oh, the magnificent

Magnificent

Magnificent

The breath before the plunge

In case you haven’t already heard, my plans for the next few months are:

  • Graduate June 13.
  • Intern in LA with Oasis USA over the summer.
  • Move to Washington, DC in the fall to be the Policy and Outreach Intern with Sojourners.

I’m totally excited about all of those things. But very, very, very deep down.

Because before I get to those things, i.e. in the next four weeks, my to-do list is as follows:

  • Write four one-page journals, two critical responses, and a final project.
  • Read three heavy (in terms of subject matter) and thick (in terms of size) books, write a 25-page research paper.
  • Write an 8-10 page paper, write up my part of a group project, and write an in-class essay.
  • Think up, write up and present my part of a group project (about which we’re still not totally sure …).
  • Organize and coordinate the Fuller All-Seminary Council elections, and various other ASC responsibilities.

Let me tell you this: if I’m alive at the end of this quarter, it’ll only be by the grace of God.

Seriously.
