A Future Still in the Waiting

Yes, it's here. Finally. This is the future. See it. Love it. Live it. It releases sometime after I leave for Taiwan, and I will not be able to enjoy the companionship of this piece of art as my own. But I assure you that upon my return, it will be part of my life. In Taiwan, the Factories of Fate and Destiny stand strong. Their product will ship numbering in the hundreds of millions. I will be able to see them and watch as people enjoy their wonder and brilliance. But I will wait patiently for edition 2 or 3 when I get back. I can't wait. I just know it's going to be fantastic. Apple does it again. Way to be, Jobs. Keep it up. I hope you become immortal and never die, because without you at the head of Apple, I don't know how it'll keep it's status of Celestial Glory. God uses Apple merchandise. The better Apple gets, the better our lives get, not necessarily because the new product makes our lives more efficient, but because God has it easier running the planet with his iPad. Can't wait to hold my own. Sigh...

Moving Forward

Well, I have a job at Walmart, but it doesn't start until mid-February. So I'll have 4 weeks there. Tomorrow I have a 4-hour interview for a call-center, that I hope I get. Last week, I interviewed for a job at a private insurance company, and got it. But they forgot that we had discussed the fact that I would be gone mid-March on an LDS mission. They told me I got the job, only for me to remind them of my departure. I keep looking for work, and it's slowing down. I am starting to really re-kindle my mower tune-up business, while I wait for something else to happen. I have just about 50 or so days before I leave, and I can't wait. It's not enough, but it's too much. It's gonna take forever for that day to come, and yet it'll come way too fast. But I'm ready. I'm not worried about anything after that day other than doing my best and bringing as many souls unto Christ as I possibly can. Videogames I love playing are being released in sequels all around me and I can't do anything about it. I have a short supply of novels I can read to keep me busy, and the television shows my Dad and I keep up on week after week. I have little projects I am trying to finish before I head out, and, of course, I won't be able to finish them. When I go to the theater, I see previews for fantastic movies that come out after I leave. Apple decides to launch new devices right before I go. I've decided that I am going to be excited for what is available when I get back. I can't wait to go, I'm hunting for things to do, and yet I have too much to do. There's not enough time, but there's plenty. As I am attacked on every front by the adversary, I find solice in the Atonement and in my family. One of my favorite quotes comes from the movie "Meet the Robinsons". "Keep Moving Forward." Like Adam of old, that's just what I'm going to do.

I got a job. :D It is overnight at Walmart, so not the most glamorous of careers, but definitely worth all the stress, pain, and overwhelming effort (I know, it wasn't a ton, but it felt like way more than that ;P). So, here I go, turning Nocturnal, and making a bunch of money. Full-time. 5 days a week. Yay. :D
