It’s been almost 6 years since I actually touched this blog. Times sure flies, and that kinda messes with my head. Looking back at all the spelling mistakes and improper grammar, I find it pretty hilarious.
That makes me feel super old now, and that’s a little disturbing… check that, very disturbing. Fortunately that same boy is still alive within. The same kid who likes armor, has always wanted a sword, and wished for the ability to wield energy and messed around with projects and life.
Growing up sure feels weird. A lot more schoolwork, that’s for sure, but getting added to that is the fun stuff, like Scouting events of the next generation. Our Troop has gotten much stronger and we have a ton of New Scouts who have joined our 3 improved patrols: Infinity (mine), Ghosts, and Falcons. I’m suddenly able to actually do a lot more homeschooling activities and it’s kinda overwhelming.
DTS (Dead Theologians Society) is always something to look forward to every month, learning about the Saints whose examples we can try and follow which in turn will lead us to imitate Jesus. Everything good that the Saints have done ties back to the Scouting principles that I strive to live by.
I’ve got a bunch of great friends who enjoy RPG campaigns (Role-Playing Games, for those who don’t know or are thinking Rocket Propelled Grenades) such as Warhammer 40k and GURPS. Personally, I prefer Warhammer, much more fighting, and some cool dice. Deathwatch is probably the best of the rulebooks.
But yeah, times have seriously changed, and soon, hopefully before Easter, there will be a new Pope sitting upon the Throne of St. Peter. Now some people might think this has absolutely no relation to what I previously said but my mind is kinda like that, it moves through thoughts like a burning flame. There will be those who will fight to get a weak-willed Pope, but I believe that the successor of Benedict XVI will be great and strong. There will always be one who rises up to the challenge when the world needs strength and a moral compass to continue to follow.
Why do I speak like this? Because I am who I am. And I’ll always be this way.
