If you still have this blog listed as my primary address, I regret to inform you that I have moved again.
... and I graduated from Judson University recently, that was cool. :)

Well dear reader,
It has been a while. This blog of mine has seen seasons of more usage. I apologized for this in the past. This time, I will simply let it be.
This semester has been at once a strange, wonderful, painful, amazing collection of weeks. There were weeks of great joy, and weeks of great sorrow. Academically, it went well. I received straight A's once more. Considering I had five classes that were mostly upper level for my degree concentration and minor concentration, I am very pleased with the outcome. The picture seen here I took and used for a project in one of my classes, I created a web page for the project. Check it out here.
I'm in Arizona for a few days, enjoying the heat. BTW, you can follow me on twitter @chrismwarren.
So many thoughts are swirling, and yet not one can surface enough to make meaning or significance at this point. Sigh.
Since I am reading Friedman at the moment, I will simply comment on the first few pages of his recently updated tome: The World Is Flat. Friedman contends early on that the Internet and various pieces of it have flattened the globe in a way that makes globalization kick into hyper drive and allow opportunity to be seized by anyone with a computer and access to the world wide web. He is more eloquent then I am, but by creating this post and discussing his book, I am proving his point entirely.
Anyone read the rest? What was the most impactful portion of the book for you?
What are you thinking about? What thoughts are swirling friends?

Right, so I was getting excited about Battlestar tonight, and I logged onto Scifi.com to be an uber nerd about it just a few minutes ago.
This is what met me at Battlestar's homepage. I was shocked and slightly dismayed.
I couldn't believe it, they were skipping a week? Why, was it for the Superbowl? (You should come to my party tomorrow!)
Then I realized that BSG was on LAST NIGHT... because last night was Friday... today is Saturday. I am an idiot. In my own defense, I was catching up on some Office episode's last night. I finished Season 3. The ending scene where Ryan gets the corporate job and tells Kelly, "We're finished." Priceless.
Thank God, and thank God for Bittorrent, so I can get a nice copy of it.

The semester is starting off good, even if I did miss my first quiz along with three classes today. This semester is going to be pretty heavy on the reading. Especially until I figure out which classes I can skim for and which I need to really read and take some notes for.
I have not settled into a church yet, since I have been here. This is very difficult for me - both finding a church where I will be stretched and will grow and finding a church that is sensitive to the wanderings of a post-modern generation. I am hoping to check a couple out in the coming weeks, and I'd like to post my thoughts here.

School starts back for the spring semester tomorrow. I think that title is a bit decieving. The weather right now reads 28 F, Haze. It snowed about 4 inches earlier, and blizzard conditions are expected between 2am and 10am. The high is expected to be around 6 F, with windchills down in the 15 to 20 below range. Spring semester my ass. Frozen Winter semester, here we come.
2008 saw some great times in my life. I spent 3 months living at a bed and breakfast in Salzburg, and had the opportunity to travel a great deal during that time. There are photos up in my Picasa Web Albums. I had a ton of good times, and met some incredible people.
2008 also saw some hard times in my life, and I'm not sure if I am ready to be posting about all that here on my blog, those of you who are close know about it anyway.
I don't really make New Year's resolutions... But, I would like to see myself more active here on my blog. I feel like I was in a writer's wasteland for a while, and churning out academic papers hasn't helped that one bit. However, grades for Fall 2008 were straight A's. This should put me on the Dean's List again, but I am waiting for them to actually post. For 2009 I would like to keep that trend up as well, 3 semesters left. I'm ready to knock it out.
Here's to 2009.
