Life is strange.
Tracey has become a rude and hurtful individual, especially to Jeni and myself. The people who occupy this summer theater residence hall are talented, but my heart goes out to them. They simply don’t know truth, and it doesn’t seem they want to.
As an example there is Mariesa from Florida, near Miami, and her brother Mason, soon to be a student at LMC, plus their mother Dana. To them, church is a place to catch up on sleep. I spent some time with Mariesa in the computer lab. She’s funny and pretty on the outside, but totally lost.
They have a condo up on Sugar Mountain and I went up there with Jeni and Tracey and a few others. I found joy by playing with their camcorder and walking alone on the ski slope. But as we were leaving, Jeni backed her car off the road. It took all of us, plus an hours worth of time, to push it back on.
I am not appreciated by many people here. I am looked over. And that is good.
Allen, Vince, Dan, Curtis, Jeni, Jessica, and Sharon and her family are the ones I share my life with.
I called Regent University in Virginia Beach. They are sending me an application and information on their film school.
I do not know what the summer of ’98 will bring, but by the beginning of September I will be creating a new home. God is preparing me to leave Lees-McRae College, Banner Elk, and Avery County. My time here will always be treasured, but I must move on. These friends here will last forever, but I must move ahead.
I give this life to my Holy Father. I don’t want to live it on my own. There is so much I don’t understand, but I know he does.
Here I am. That’s all I know how to say. Here I am.
