Was spent first at a family friend’s upstate mansion for lunch. And then back to Queens for a good’ol time at the Weng’s Household. Wii and good company, equal good times.

Turkey was had, and in bountiful amounts. Said my thanksgiving hellos and text messages Andi, Farrah, Anni, jude… etc etc the whole lot.

For the weekend, I went over to Pennsylvania with Mike to a Christian retreat center. I’ve never been to one before and so I really didn’t know what to expect. What i got though, was a very fulfilling experience. Mike had to do a lecture for a small youth group of kids from Brooklyn. I was more or less there for moral support and to experience the Christian retreat. According to Mike, this particular youth group was fairly small compared to what his church does annually. Apparently, his event is a pretty big deal. I’d love to attend his parent’s retreat, but its like 99% spoken in Spanish. And I’m like 1% fluent in Spanish. So it probably wouldn’t work out.

I could probably find a church nearby that uses the same facilities and kinda of get into it that way, but I really don’t know where to begin.

I recently started this exploration of my faith, so I’m pretty much a newbie to who to contact and what websites to go to or even what church to attend. I’m sure I’ll find what I’m looking for in a church and faith eventually. I’m just glad that I’m finally doing something about it.

I told a friend today, that its interesting how I’ve noticed more and more things dealing with Christ every day. I don’t know if they are just little subtle reminders to keep Him in my mind or if its just my interpreting events a certain way due to my recent experiences. Sorta like them Ancient Oracles. Either way its interesting, and I’m willing to keep perusing this further. … Today’s event was while waiting for a job interview, I sat in a waiting room thinking about stuff. God came into my mind and I thought about the past weekend. At that moment, a woman working in the office came out humming a song to herself. When she came to where I was sitting she started to sing (with a gospel ring) “Santa Clause is coming to town, but Christ is already here”. Maybe not to subtle, but interesting how it happened at that moment.

Anyways, back to the weekend, it was cool. The counselors? (I think thats what you would call them) who managed and ran the youth group, were all really awesome people. Felt very welcomed even though I was a bit standoffish at first. Though that is normally how i am… well shy that is. It was easy to open up and just let things flow. I also sorta met a potential new friend at the end of my stay. A worker at the retreat who, as i understand it, was there with her church as well as for the job? (another employee told me that thats what she was there for, so figure it is the same for everyone that worked there) Not sure how that works out. Whenever she (Rachael) gets back from her church retreat, I’ll probably talk to her through email or something. (she’s very cute, but probably too young for anything more than a friendship)

In trying to find more ways of exploring these interests I have, I think its important that I find more and more friends that share the same interests. Christianity, Animation, Marketing, and … heh tailoring… The first three seem to be the easiest though. My current set of friends, of who I love and am thankful for, aren’t the best candidates for going to conventions and related events with. Christianity especially, although I do have Mike, I think I want to have a bigger base of friends that share the same interest. The majority of my best friends are agnostic and atheist. Not exactly the perfect crowd that would help flourish an interest in religion.


Job Interviews…. hmmm I don’t want to talk about them again. I’ve talked about them way too much today. And I feel anymore and I’m just jinx’ing myself. Let’s just say, I’m very hopeful.

Anyways… Keep on Truckin.
