In Which I Resolve

Been a while, hasn’t it? Sorry about that, you know how things go. I trust everyone had a good end to their two double aught six and allowed aught seven to begin with style! I am back up in Bellingham after spending two weeks down with the family in Longview and/or Woodland. After my hiatus, I have noticed that I have a LOT of blogging to catch up on (and yes, they are daily life posts, sorry if those are boring to you!). Posts to look forward to soon:

  • Christmas celebrations with dad’s side of the family, with step-dad’s side of the family, and mom’s side of the family.
  • The Lonely Forest show at Seattle’s Historic University Theater
  • The Late Tuesday show at the Q Cafe
  • Christmas Mud Bowl in Montesano
  • A quick reunion with some great friends from high school.
  • My (sort of) best of CD for 2006.
  • Still need to do a review of The Lonely Forest’s EP Regicide.
  • I think that is all I have to do, although I am sure there are many other things I need/should touch on. We will see I guess. I also need to update my Flickr photostream with the latest snapshots.

    I could make some sort of New Year’s resolution that would be boring. This year I am going to try something different. This year I resolve to get a date! Yes, that’s right. Kinda lame, I know, but really, I think it is a goal I would like to set. (More lame stuff to follow, please feel free to skip on to other posts…) I know I really should resolve to pray more or to get in better shape (both of which I should do), but I thought maybe this is something I should be more proactive about. Now this is kinda embarrassing/awkward and I am wearing my heart on my sleeve here, so be kind. Heh. I am not much of a dater. I have only had three relationships in my life and all of those have just organically started (if that makes sense). I really don’t even know what dating looks like and definitely don’t really know how to just ask someone out. Call it fear of rejection or fear of harming an existing relationship or whatever, dating is just foreign to me. I am ok with that, I don’t need to have a relationship or a date to feel good about myself. But I would like a family eventually and, well, dating would be a good place to start. I am not saying that I need to start something serious, I am just looking to break out a little bit and ask someone to coffee or something. Think it will work? Is this just too silly a resolution? Okay, enough of this nonsense!

      Actually, the praying more will definetly work in this situation. God already has a plan for you Matt, let Him know you’re interested in hearing about it and getting on with it. :)

      I just want to tell you good luck. We’re all counting on you.

      Heh, thanks for that vote of confidence Julia! :)

      I definitely agree Sal. Prayer is something I have always struggled with. It is something I am hoping Letters of Faith will help me be more consistent with.

      Ummm, yeah, thanks for that added pressure Kristin. ;)

      wow, this is something I have troubles expressing to God that I want… It’s something I want, but I have a hard time asking God for things I want. Good for you Matt for being forward and open about it. :)

      It was great to see you too Kim! I hope your trip back went smoothly.

      I guess we will see what happens, eh?

      God is always there to ask, right? Even if things don’t go as we want or think they should go, doesn’t mean he isn’t working along side us and encouraging us!
