Almost Done…

I just now got done with packing all the equipment and files and stuff for the office to move out to Cali. Now all I have to do is get all my personal stuff ready and to be honest I haven’t started at all. Its ok though I mean if I have a clean pair of underwear and my toothbrush, cell phone (and charger), computer, guitar I am alright I think. I don’t need much more than that. I am still looking for a place to stay. I have emailed a few people and hopefully they will turn out to be good places to where I can stay.

My family is coming to town tonight, cause it is my mom and Dad’s anniversary, so i get to take my little sis out which will be a lot of fun. I am excited! I do wish my brother was here. I miss him a lot but he is being a ambassador for Christ up in N. Cali.

I need to put some pictures up on here I guess I will try to do that next time I get on until then, Be Blessed…

Got the OK…

Well this coming week is going to be a very busy one for me. You see I just got the ok to move all my stuff from my old Apt into my new house that I am renting with two other AWESOME people so I don’t have to do it when I get back from CA, which is actually a huge blessing considering I will be extremely tiered. Also this week I am having to prepare all of our Editing equipment and supplies to be shipped to CA at the end of the week, so I have to work late on that at the office. So I have both of those things then I really would like to see my friends before I leave as well. So needless to say I am trying to figure out my sched for the next few days. 

But it is going to be amazing living in CA for 7 weeks, even though I am not entirely sure where I am going to live yet. I know God will provide.

Going to Cali…

So yesterday I got word from my boss saying that I can go out to California with them and finish up the summer working at the Disney Studio. So I am pretty excited! There are just a lot of things i have to work out before I leave in 2 weeks. I have to find a place to stay in Burbank or close to it. I want to be able to find a gym I can work out in. I need to find a stunt partner in Cali that i can work with to get better and learn new stunts. I have to plan my route to get to Cali. And finish up stuff here in Nashville before I go. Tons of stuff but it is def going to be an adventure. If any of you know someone who lives near Burbank CA, or of female that knows how to coed stunt please let me know. i will be in California for 6 weeks. I come back home to TN on the 20th of August. 

I know this is going to be a blessed trip and awesome experience just continue to pray that God will guide my path and I will have a continuing Faith for Him.

Barely Making it Off the Interstate…

Wow, ok so I haven’t had a really stressful day in a long time, actually I don’t get stressed a lot at all I usually get more focused. But today is in the running of kind of a stressful day. So I get up this morning like I always do and take my shower get ready for work get in my car start driving right?…. Well about half way to work (about a 25 min drive to work) I realize my car (actually my brothers car) is acting kind of funny. I look at the gages and the battery gage is all the way down and the next thing I know BOOM, all of the electronics shut off. But the car is still running praise God. I get over into the right lane just in case the rest of the car decides to shut down but it ran ok cause I kept it reved up! Well I get off my exit just waiting for my car to die but it doesn’t it allows me to get a mile away from work when bla buh bluh bluh eeewwwwwwwwwww (that is a car dying soung) so I coast into a parking lot and do the whole calling AAA thing and to get it toed and calling my boss telling them I would be late. Needless to say I finally got it toed and actually got it worked on today. It did cost my whole pay check for the week but at least i have a car now. If I would have gone to a main dealership I probably would have had to sell my right arm or something to pay for it.

 

A nice thing that did happen today was my boss was nice enough to come pick me up. I was already behind on work and had more work given to me when I arrived so needless to say I am still working and it is 7 tonight. I am waiting on some drives to finish up and then I need to make some DVD’s but I might have to wait till tomorrow cause my eyes are getting really tiered of looking at the computer screens.

Not sure what I will do tonight… I might just go eat at Fridays where my friend works, well I might not really eat but I will go socialize with him, then go home and eat some cereal and go to bed. that would be nice Bed YES I think I might try to do that but who is to say I will actually do it, probably will find somethig else to distract me. I just pray that tomorrow will not be as crazy for me as today…

Oh Yes I Am Going…

Indiana JonesOk so today is the day of the new Opening movie “Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and I am excited. The past few days I have been watching all of the old Indiana Jones movies and I actually forgot how much I really enjoyed them. I think my favorites would have to be “Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and “The Last Crusade” I am not that big of a fan of the “Temple of Doom” but it is still a Indiana Jones Movie which puts it up on the top of my list. I got a few friends going with me tonight, it is going to be a lot of fun just hanging out and going to the movies, bt the worst part is the anticipation. I am sitting at work right now, on a break of course, just ready for the evening to come to watch the movie, but I know it will come soon enough.

 

Have you ever wanted to be a Super Hero or just someone in a movie. Of course most of us have. i mean my most recent is wanting the suite off of Iron Man so I can get the girl and save lives and be extra awesome like that. But with my luck no one quite carried them yet to have. I am sure after seeing Indiana Jones tonight I will want to have a whip, fight off bad guys, hate snakes, get the girl, and find a unique treasure all within 2 hours. Yeah I think it could happen, well if not there is always Halloween where I can dress like him. 

 

All in all I am just excited about this movie cause I remember watching these movies with my family especially brother and dad growing up. It will bring back a lot of great memories with them. Everyone is welcome to come out tonight if you want at 7:15 at the 100 Oaks Theatre (Regal 27) to see it with us if you would like. If not until next…

Another Day of Work…

So this week has been a full week of work. Basically since Monday morning till now I have worked everyday. But I have gotten to do a few fun things this week. Like on Tues night I got a chance to go to Belmont’s last Baseball home game, I did have to leave (sorry Brian) early but I did get to go to the Hannah Montana Movie set and watch a few scenes being filmed. It was a lot of fun. Wed I heard my incredible friend Parker sing at the Indigo Hotel. She did so great and she sang one of my favorite songs she wrote which was written about a Bathtub! Incredible if you have a chance to go see her do it!

 

Lets see last night I didn’t do much I just went home a cleaned, I know something everyone wants to do, but I did rent the Alvin and the Chipmunks , and Bourne Ultimatium. YEAH TWO GREAT MOVIES!!!!! I watched both of them last night. So now I am still at work on a break waiting to take a DVD to set then maybe I can get home to see Cronicles of Narnia with my Dad and Bro tonight before my brother Jordan leaves for the summer. He is going to CA to lead worship and be the media arts supervisor for JH Ranch all summer. I am kind of jealous but really excited for him.

 

But that is really it for the week. Nothing really exciting but this weekend will be nice and relaxing I hope. We will see…

Movie Wedding…

Ok so I just got back yesterday morning from one of those incredible crazy full weekends that we all sometimes go through, yeah well that was one of those for me. You see something that a lot of people don’t know is I just recently got hired as the Assistant to the editing producers of the new Hannah Montana Movie. Yeah well it is pretty cool if I don’t say so myself. But I started last week on this movie and I found out that I was not going to be able to sing in my cousins wedding. Well something you all need to know about my cousin CINDY is, she is so awesome I love her to death and so does everyone else.  She has the sweetest heart and I promise you I will marry someone just like her one day. So needless too say I was pretty upset about not being able to go. Well Thursday before the wedding, which was going to be on Saturday, I was able to talk to my boss to see if I was going to have to work the weekend. He said no, and when I told him I was in a wedding he instead on me leaving when I needed to on Fri to get to it. My boss is AWESOME! So this is where the cool stuff starts.

 

So right from work I go strait to the airport to fly down to WEST PALM BEACH already just excited to go there. I arrive and even though I missed most of the reh. Dinner I still got to see where they had it and it was so awesome. Well my family and I go back to our hotel, THE BREAKERS, one of the nicest hotels in West Palm to sleep the night away before the big wedding day. Well we wake up the next morning to the sound of my little cousins banging on the door telling us we need to go to the pool and beach with them. So of course we get up, 2 hours later, to meet them down at the pool. It was so nice to be with part of the family there for the day but time rolled around and we had to start getting ready for the wedding. The funny thing was for me, was that my dad had to buy a shirt for me to wear with my suite and I just let him pick it out. So I see it and it doesn’t look too bad, but when I put it on it was a parachute and I looked like ALADIN. So of course my brother, is is the best brother in the world, started to make fun of me.

 

Well the wedding was a concervative wedding, and I got to sing with my brother, but the reception, well lets just say ASTRONOMICAL!!! It was like you would see it in a movie. Everything was perfect. We had a pre reception outside next to the ocean on like golf grass where everyone could socialize, then we all went into this nice big room to have a reception dinner. Well it was incredible and then there was dancing till midnight. Yes I had so much fun and I know the rest of the family did as well. So that concluded Sat night. Almost done I promise: Then we wake up early and my family get to go to Disney World!!!!! The Happiest Place on earth! So we make a full day of going to MGM and Magic Kingdom and try to go on all the rides and YES it was so much fun.

 

At the end of the night I looked back on the weekend and I was so glad I was able to go to FL for the weekend even though I had to wake up at 4 to get to my flight to go home, I almost missed it by the way, Orlando airport not a place for fast check ins if you ask me. My family is still there having a grand ole happy fun time without me, but at least I was able to e with them for a little while. So that concludes my weekend of craziness….
