California Dreamin’

January 9, 2008

“What’s up Don?” That’s what I shouted as my favorite author, Donald Miller, crossed my path in the lobby. Out of all the phrases to say, I chose to say that one.  He seemed a little startled, flashed a half smile my way, and continued to walk. I had my chance…and I blew it.  Ah well.  The rest of my trip to Cali was pretty eventful.  Positives: #1 Saw my family for the first time in 2 months. #2 Hung out with amazing friends and professors from college. #3 Got to eat Carl’s Jr. for the first time in 2 months. #4 Shane Claiborne, Erwin McManus, and Donald Miller brought it like none other. #5 Leeland and Switchfoot rocked it like none other. #6 Found my phone after being apart for 36 hours.  #7 Went to Disneyland on New Year’s Day and it wasn’t too busy. Negatives: #1 Didn’t get to eat In-N-Out. #2 Lost my phone for 36 hours. #3 Got sick.  I guess that’s it. I would definitely say that the positives outweighed the negative.  I am a little bummed right now, because I was planning on watching American Idol tonight, but found out that it starts next week….story of my life.
