It hasn’t been the 26th for that long. Tonight was supposed to have been the last VIP gathering, but there wasn’t a home game, so it was cancelled. I didn’t find that out until I got there with Jenna, Tenielle, and Sunny. Sunny is staying with them while her parents are at the beach. Scott was there with Tim, so we stayed and watched the Olympics.
Then an employee comes out and says “Is there a Jacob here?”
I said “yes.”
He said, “you have a phone call.”
I thought it would be my mom, but it wasn’t it was Brandon. Can you believe it? He called my mom and she said we were at Mr. Gatti’s and since he still has a Sanford phone book, all the way there in Arizona, he looked it up and called there. He said he did it just to scare the heck out of me.
We left a little after 10:00 p.m. and went to the park. I didn’t tell Jonathan I was going down to Jenna and Tenielle’s and Marcus wasn’t with me. So, for once I spent a lot of time with Jenna and Tenielle without another guy there. Every time a guy is with me, they always ask me what is wrong because I’m not acting like myself. I just can’t be myself around Marcus, Jonathan, or Kevin when I’m around Jenna or Tenielle, because they pick on me later. It’s weird. But tonight, I was myself. We had a lot of fun. Thank you Jesus!
Things are going to get busy in the future. Tomorrow we are going to Fayetteville and ride with Kevin and two guys from his Bible Study to Charlotte where we will see DC Talk in concert. We will spend the night at a house, go to church down there the next morning and then come back home. We will miss church Sunday morning in Sanford.
Wednesday, March 2nd, I have to have my essay on Macbeth turned in. We also have cap and gown pictures then and a huge Pre-calculus test. I have read to then read Hamlet and turn in an essay on it the following week. We also have to act out and perform a scene from either play on March 7th.
There are 13 weeks of school left. Sixty-five days of my senior year. Only sixty-five days of high school remain.
After all this Shakespeare stuff, we will start a 20-page long research paper. I’m doing mine on either evolution or dinosaur extinction.
On March 4th, the Imperials will be at our church.
Hopefully, I find the time to finish everything. I never have time to do anything on the weekend, because I’m always in Sanford. But hey, the heart has a hunger too. Just like the mind hungers for knowledge and insight, just like the flesh hungers for food, the spirit longs for God and those who know him.
