Thoughts and Happenings…

May Finally Roles Around

OK OK OK OK I have said this many times but I believe this is the longest I have gone without posting anything. It has been months I believe. Yikes I have gotten bad at this.  Oh well I am now ready to start back. A lot has gone on in my life lately. I have been working at a gymnastics gym called Let It Shine gymnastics. I also have been working for CMT on a few different productions. 

One thing I have been thinking of doing is going to Grad school at either Alabama or University of Oregon. I loved both schools. I really wish I could go to Oregon though but then again I would really like to go to U of A as well cause my brother is there. But now God has different plans for me. He has told me to be ready for His plans and not be tied down to anything for a long period of time. So I have decided to wait for His timing.

I also during this small little break got to date an amazing girl her name was Sarah Lenore. She is a artist here in Nashville and is going to be doing some pretty amazing things soon. We are just friends now which is probably better for us at this point in our lives. My family is still doing great. We are planning on going to Ukraine in June to do some missions in the Orphanages there. I am so excited. Well i will have to let you know some other stuff later. Thanks again for reading again. Be Blessed

Yeah it’s been rough…

Ok Ok yeah I know I keep saying in all the recent, well the last blogs I wrote not really recent, that I just haven’t had time to write well I won’t say that again. It would not be true ha ha. This semester has not turned out the way that I thought it would for me. You see it is my last semester and I thought i would have all this time and it would be great and I would make tons of new friends. Well it kind of has been just the opposite of that.

You see I hate to say it but I have kind of gone backwards a little. I mean that, I have not had time for a lot of my friends, I haven’t even seen my roommates and I live with them. School is ruling my life along with Cheering. Now I have a new job which I love but I have to work evenings so it has just been a little rough. But looking over the hill I only have right around 3 weeks left of school. That is including my Final Exams. You have no idea how excited I am!

I have made a promise to myself and to God that I am going to get back on track. I miss a lot of my friends so i am going to start hanging out with them more especially once school ends. I also have to make a few hard decisions but that is all to come. Be looking for some pictures. I have a lot that I haven’t posted. Be Blessed.

I am Bad at this…

I have really been dropping the ball lately on this whole blogging thing. I guess I just keep forgetting and now I am finding myself sitting here right before my lab trying to figure out what to write that might interest whoever might be reading and to be honest I have nothing. I mean I have done a few really cool things lately. Like this past weekend i went down to Atlanta GA to help with a youth conference. I was one of the small group leaders for the guys. I had a lot of fun chillin with those guys and making awesome new friends. Haven’t heard anything new about the TV show yet for my squad but i think we should be hearing back this week, so we will see. maybe I will try to post some new pictures or something since I haven’t done that in a while….. PEACE

Albert from Chicago….

So yes I know I said I would post soon so here it is….. The past week was kind of busy but I got through it. I am pretty sure i have a few things to take care of this week that are a grade, so I probably will have to study and even more busy. But this past weekend my friend Allison came into town to visit myself and a few other people here in nashville. We had a great time.

 

Allison and I went on tour together like 4 or 5 times. I was her director on those YC tours. I probably could not tlel you where all of them went but I know they were all great. Well it has been like almost 2 years since we have seen each other and she decided to come hang out. We got to do a lot of things with my friends whom she loved getting to know. We even went to Hollywood Disco which I am sure I will post some pictures from that soon.

 

Nothing really other to report from this weekend. I can tell you that y shoulder is finally feeling better so maybe I will be able to start doing stuff soon. Oh and there is a small chance that our cheer squad will be on MTV for some TV show but we will see about that.

I am still Alive I promise…

Yeah it has been way to long since I have posted anything. I have been a slacker the past few weeks. I think because I have just had a lot to take care of. School started back which means all the extra stuff that comes with school started back as well. I thought I would have a lot of time to myself but it turns out that it is not going happen because everything is starting to take a lot of time. I am really excited about what this semester holds but it might be a little challenging as well.

The classes I am taking this semester are Audio II, Record Label Operations, Strategic Management, Tour Production, and Senior Capstone. Most of them will be interesting but very time consuming outside of class. Then there is Cheerleading… YES I am a cheerleader. Actually I really enjoy, but as of right now I am not allowed to do anything cause of my shoulder. It is all messed up and I am ready for it to stop hurting so I can work out and stunt and tumble again. We just started working our competition squad. We have a long way to go but it will be a lot of fun.

I am sitting in my house right now about to take a nap and finish some HW before practice tonight. I am going to try to write some more blogs soon getting a little deeper about what is going on in my life. Be Blessed

Back to TN…

YES Finally I am back to Nashville. I know I should have told you all of what has gone on the past like week with my Birthday and getting everything ready to be back here and all that but to be honest I really don’t feel like writing about all that right now cause I am a little tiered.

I will tell you this.. My brother and I started on Monday a challenge to see who could get in shape faster (NO JORDAN YOU ARE GOING DOWN). He has a slight advantage cause I am not allowed to work out my upper body cause of my stupid shoulder. It is still separated from last Dec from Snowboarding. But hey it is ok I am in Physical therapy right now so hopefully it wont be to long.

My next post I will let you in on all what has happened. I am going to be playing tomorrow at Belmont after the Freshman Synodia Sermon and stuff. It will be quite interesting cause I have a few songs ready but not a lot so we will see how I do. Oh real quick I am really excited cause I am sitting in front of my new Plasma TV writing this watching the Olympics, just wanted you to know…

How to Fix Grand Cherokee Brake Lights…

I forgot to post how you fix your Brake Lights and Tail lights on a Grand Cherokee. At least this is what fixed mine when the brake lights where dim during the day and when I turned on my lights at night I would loose Taillights and Brake Lights. Hopefully it will work for you too. Be Blessed

 

1. Remove the tail light assembly. Most of you know how to remove the light assembly if you’ve changed bulbs, so I won’t cover that. 

2. disconnect the wiring harness by sliding the red locking clip to the side in order to press the side of the male connector and pull apart. 

3. Once you’ve got the tail assembly away from the vehicle and on a bench, remove the light socket for the tail/brake light. You will see 3 silver contact points inside the black plastic ring. 2 are grouped together and there is one that is opposite of the 2. The one by itself is the ground; the other two are the contacts for the tail light and brake light. The problem lies with the ground connector. (BTW, I tested continuity with all lights and contacts including the turn signal and the reverse light to verify that the circuit board itself was good, and it was). 

4. clean all contacts with a Q-Tip and some sort of contact cleaner – rubbing alcohol will work. 

5. You should notice that the ground contact is depressed into the plastic and the plastic itelf is slightly warped down. I was able to use a small pair of needle nose pliers that have a 45 degree angle to press up on the contact from underneath using the opposite lip of the hole as leverage (very carefully). Once it had moved up a bit, I was able to wedge a mini-flathead screwdriver in between the metal contact and the plastic to force the contact up even further (again, very carefully). Once it looked even with the rest, gently reinsert the connector and test. 

 

Good Luck! Let me know if it works for you as well.

Men Fix Their Own Cars…

Ok so my last post was telling you what was going wrong with my car and what I did through out the weekend. This one is going to tell you how God just blessed me today by helping me fix my car by myself. So at the beginning of this week I still have no taillights or brake lights at night. It is getting really frustrating cause people keep yelling at me and honking at me and I can’t drive at night right. Well Yesterday which was Wed. the 6th I decided too look online to see if any other Jeeps where having the same problem. Well to my surprise there were a lot. Jeep probably should recall a lot of jeeps to fix cause they are all having the same problem. But back to my story. I was just about to give up when I saw one more page that I could read and it was a question and answer page. So decided to read it. Well the guy had the same kind of JGC I had with the same problems and under was some random guy that answered him. He said he had the same issues and fixed it buy doing this and that. I looked at it for a sec and was wondering if it would actually work on my car. So I decided to be a mechanic and try ha ha. It worked! It took me about 2 hours to do with all the wiring and Grounding and stuff but I fixed my car with God’s help cause i am no mechanic. Now my Taillights and Brake lights work better than before.  So yes I was feeling like a manly man at that moment.

That part of my day made everything else go great. But to top it all off I met up with a friend I just found out that was out here and she took me to a apt building and we went to the roof to grill out with her friends. you could see all of Downtown LA it was so much fun! I met a lot of cool people there too. there was this one guy that he and I came up with this incredible idea for a shop, but I can’t tell you cause you wil want to steal it cause it is BRILLIANT!!!!
