Summer solstice - longest day of the yEaR...









Oh... and P.S. I'm not on my laptop, so I dont have access to my pictures at the moment. But I'm sure you'll enjoy these shots anyway. These are pictures from last week when my oldest brother Drew was being ordained as a Reverend. One pic is my cousin Isaac and my brother Tim cookin' some hamburgers for our picnic afterwards. And the other picture is the congregation taking part in the blessing of my brother - who you actually can't see, but he's in there.

Yeah... it's kinda been a while since I last posted. Sry I haven't gotten around to it. Oh well... I'll try to be better in the future.

Wow, so it has been a long time since I last posted. What happened in the past two weeks for me? Well, I got a job for starters. I'm working with Duquesne in the Office of International Programs. I'm doing database work for them. It's pretty much creating / designing some new Access databases. I think I'm at the point where I know what I'm doing now, so it should be alright. It's a small project that will take maybe 100-150 hours, so I still have a lot of free time doing other things. Plus, I can work from home, so I don't have to commute work everyday. SCORE

I'm also working with my dad this summer again... so between the two jobs, I'll be busy, but not busy enough to do anything. I can work my schedule around to anyway I please, so I'm up for a fun summer. Tomorrow I just might head up to Pymatuning for a little camping with my bud if it all works out.

Also, next week I'm doing a little housesitting. I'm actually dogsitting my friends dog for a week while she's away on vacation. But I'll be spending a week in my friends house coming up.

PNC finally contacted me and resolved the problem I had with them. I wrote about it a while ago - basically a ATM in Japan didn't dispense me my 10,000 Yen. Well they finally realized there was a problem and put the money back into my account. w00t

That's all for now... but hey... at least I got something up!

'Tis finally summer...

















I'm glad I'm finally back on American soil after an exciting and amazing month overseas. China is an amazing country, and I'm glad I was able to be a part of it for a while. But, I'm also glad to finally be home and to start my summer in Pittsburgh.

So I owe the blog a lot of photos - so here are 3 right now. One is of course Mt. Everest, one is the scenery in Tibet, and one is a picture of Mao. I have an online photo album so everyone can see a selection of pictures online, so if you would like to see them, click on this link.

So now I'm home, and chillaxin. However, I'm looking for a job/internship, because I don't want to be a waste of life this summer. I applied for a couple of jobs online, but I wasn't getting any responses. So, this morning I was getting really despirate, and about to go out and look for any ol' job. But as I was getting ready this morning, one of the companies I applied to finally gave me a call, and scheduled an interview. Whew... I was getting worried that I wouldn't be able to find something. I'll let you know how that goes.

So I hope everyone is enjoying summer now - I sure am.
