икони богородицаПравославни икониKatelyn and I went to the mall to shop for Halloween costumes. I felt silly looking for a costume at this age, but she insists that I’m going to love Halloween. After stopping in several stores and looking at a million costumes, we finally found a matching set. It looks like this Halloween I am going to be a robber. Even though my outfit isn’t that amazing, it is not my costume that I am supposed to be excited about.

Over the past few days, I have been really upset. The idea of my aunt dying is really taking a toll on my daily life. Not that I want anything to happen to someone else, but my aunt happens to be my favorite relative. What upsets me even more is what my father said the other day. The man cannot come to grips with reality. Everything just somehow always relates to God. His sister is dying and he can still manage to say it is the will of God. Just writing this down almost brings me to tears. I am really confused.

I am so furious. I cannot believe the things dad said. His comments are the exact reason why I despise religion. I have no respect for their extreme beliefs and faith. It is all so much bullshit.

Aunt Lizzie has lung cancer. Grampa said the prognosis is not good. I am still in shock just as much as I was last night. Who would have thought a 38 year old could get lung cancer? She doesn’t even smoke. How is that even possible? I feel so bad for her and my cousins.

Last night, Katlyn and I went to the city to get some Italian food. I cannot even remember the last time I went to an upscale restaurant. Usually I would prefer Japanese food, especially sushi, but Katlyn seems to be a big fan of Italian. I could tell how much she loved Italian food by the way she could pronounce everything on the menu.

Updates (or lack thereof)

Hey everyone, John here. Life has been very hectic for me these past few months, and honestly, school comes first. I started putting off schoolwork to type of some of the entries and I realized the negative affect it was having on my grades. Unfortunately, the courses I am currently taking involve a lot of research and writing of really really long papers. After doing all that on almost a daily basis, I have no motivation to type up the entries from Matts journal. However, the semester ends pretty soon. This should give me more time to type up his entries. I apologize for the lack of updates and I appreciate your readership. I hope that you continue to check in for updates. They will be coming again soon.

Thanks
John

I can’t believe John is transferring to my school. Probably the best news I’ve gotten all week. I miss him and my other friends from home, but now it won’t be as bad. I’ll be able to spend time with him more often.

Today after class, I tried to figure out why people believe in their religions so much. If someone came forward today and said, “God has been speaking to me every night for the past two years. I have written down all He has told me. The book is called the Modern Testament,” he would probably be labeled as a nut case. However, that basically is what a prophet is.

Friday night was crazy. My friends and I all met up at Mike’s house, but plans changed. Mike was supposed to throw a party, but instead we heard about some other one at one of Aaron’s friends’ frat. We decided to head over there instead. There was no parking anywhere because it was so packed, so we ended up having to walk two blocks.

I just woke up a little while ago and it is mid-afternoon already. Having Fridays off is the best. My friends are all going to Mike’s house tonight, so I will probably be heading there later.
