Hey,

   What’s up everyone? It’s been a long time since I’ve written. Quite a bit has actually changed…

   We’ll start with the best news. Brent got a “real” job!!! YEAH! I actually start in about nine hours. I’m gonna be working customer support for the local telephone/cable/internet company. I’m specifically working on the internet help desk, so it goes right along with my major. The good news is I’m going to be making pretty good money, so I’ll be able to start buying all the things I’ve been saying I’ve wanted to buy for like the last 3 years. *cough*HDTV*cough* The bad news (maybe) is that I’m moving back into the basement of my parents house for the time being. I may get an apartment or something in a couple months, but I figure I might as well save some coin and move into the basement. I actually liked living in the basement the past two summers, so I don’t think it’ll be too bad. It’s just the whole image of I’m “that guy” who moves into his parents basement after college. Yeech!!! Oh well, I’ll deal.

   What else is new? Oh yeah, I went to Korean camp last week. That was pretty fun. My sister is adopted from South Korea so every year we go to a family camp in Brainerd, MN. I don’t actually go to the camp anymore – haven’t since high school. I have a really good group of about 5 or 6 friends that still are mentors at the camp so it’s awesome seeing them. It’s really weird because I haven’t really seen any of them since camp last year, but still like the minute we see each other, it’s not akward or anything. It’s just like everyone’s glad to see each other. It’s really cool to have friends like that, ya know. I hate it when some people kinda run the guilt trip on you if you haven’t seen them or talked to them in a while. People get busy… doesn’t mean I don’t like someone or don’t care or anything. I like people that are able to appreciate that, ya know.

   Umm… what else? Movies – saw Pirates of the Caribbean and Italian Job. That’s about it so far, but both of them were some of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. Both were just fun movies to watch… DVD’s – haven’t bought any in a while (ain’t it sad!) Hmm… picked up There’s Something About Mary finally. Haven’t seen that movie since it was in the theater… quality flick though. Music – picked up a new group called Die Trying. They sing a couple good songs. I really like Oxygen’s gone. Got the new Rancid and Yellowcard cd’s off the internet (shh!!!) Don’t worry, I’m buying ’em both the minute they come out. Rancid is really good, but who doesn’t know that? I’ve been hearing about Yellowcard for a while, but I finally downloaded some stuff and I have to say they are my new favorite band of the minute. October Night’s might be the best song I’ve gotten all summer. Oh yeah, downloaded MxPx’s new album too. I love the song from the Pepsi Super Bowl commercial.

   Well, I gotta get to bed! Crazy… I’ll be back. Until then… peace & love!

Brent
