November 2, 1995 – Thursday – 4:35 p.m.

Last night when I went to church, Eric, the director of the children’s Christmas show, came up to me and asked me if I wanted to take over and be the director of the show since his work schedule was getting too hectic.

I accepted.  So, now all of that joy and responsibility is mine.

I am excited.  I know the Lord will help me.

After the concert was over on Tuesday, Lisa jokingly said that I could buy her a Brian White and Justice tape for Christmas.  I jokingly said that I wouldn’t, but after she left I did and gave it to her today.  She hugged me and said I was the greatest.

I also talked to Laura last night.  I’m afraid I’m beginning to notice her again.

You know what, since I’m doing the show, and I’ll have to direct it, I probably won’t be able to go home for Thanksgiving.  But I want this bad enough.

My lighting design for the dance concert is coming along nicely.  I’ve also been cast for some more scenes.  I’m getting deeply involved with my church.  And Jesus is behind it all.

September 23, 1995 – Saturday – 4:57 p.m.

After our Antigone rehearsal, I went to watch the dancers and cloggers perform.  Then I went to lunch.  I sat with Dan, Vince, and Kris, but then I moved to sit with Stacey and Lisa sat down to join us.  Lisa asked me when I had rehearsal and I told her that we had already had it.  So, then she asked me what I was doing this afternoon.  I told her nothing.  She asked me if I wanted to go to Boone with her.  I said, “Sure!”

So we went.

Lisa has just recently broken up with her boyfriend.  They were together most of last year.  She admitted to feeling depressed.  While in Boone we felt the desire to be spontaneous, so we decided to visit Mystery Hill.  It’s a little museum/tourist trap thing on the way to Blowing Rock.  Lisa was excited and starting bouncing up and down at the idea.

It was actually really interesting.  I took some pictures of us standing up straight, but appearing as though we were leaning sideways in this house.

Afterwards, we went to K-Mart and the mall.  We had fun.  We sang together while driving around.  She is so adorable.  She is only 4’11” and I’m 6’2″.  She has invited me to her house for fall break.  I might go.  I’m not sure.

She thanked me for coming with her and said she really enjoyed herself.

Thank you Lord.
