What’s Up Wednesday- 8/23/17

What We’re Eating This Week:

I’m still eating the cafeteria food at my job. I think we can call agree that hospital cafeteria food is light years ahead of the concoctions served in school cafeterias. Then again, I do miss strawberry milk and smiley fries. You miss em’ too. Don’t lie

What I’m Reminiscing About:

I’m still thinking about the solar eclipse I got to see this Monday. As I mentioned in my last blog post, the glowing outline of the sun behind the moon made the phenomena look like a human eye- the moon a pupil and the sunlight a sclera.

What I’m Dreading:

The next news topic I hear about another person in their 20s and below losing their life. 

What I’m Working On:

This blog post and of course bettering myself day by day.

What I’m Loving:
I love meditating every morning like I started doing since this Monday. I love lettting all those negative thoughts and emotions flee from my mind, even if it’s just for ten minutes. I love imagining I’m sitting in the greenest fields on Earth, with the sunset sky looking a ripe peach. 
What We’ve Been Up To:

Recently I watched and completed the Netflix ministeries The Defenders. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give the show an 8. Some good things I liked about the show were the interaction between the four heroes(particularly Danny Rand and Luke Cage) and the action. Even Finn Jones’s fight moves had improved a little, which was needed.

What I didn’t like about the show was:

  • There was no Punisher cameo.
  • Matt Murdock was the only one who suited up. Just give Danny a suit already! 
  • Just like season 1 of Iron Fist, we still don’t get a look into the city of K’un Lun. How are we supposed to sympathize with Danny failing the city he was adopted into if we never get to see it?
  • Alexandria was made out to be this force to be reckoned with in the trailers, then just like Cottonmouth in Luke Cage season, she gets killed and replaced. 
  • I’m not bashing hip hop, but that song that played during the climactic fight in the final episode just seemed out of place and unnecessary.

    What I’m Excited About:

    I’m about excited about the next time we have the Adventist Youth Program at my church. 

    What I’m Watching/Reading:

    Last Saturday, I dove into Ellen G. White’s “The Adventist Home”. The back cover of the book reads,

    “The Christian Family: Adventist Home can be a little bit of heaven on earth, if certain basic principles are followed. Like a chart to a sailor, this volume offers a reliable guide to those sailing on the challenging sea of matrimony. Counsel is offered on many facets of home life: choosing a mate, child discipline, grandparents, holidays, hospitality, moral standards, divorce, and living with an unbelieving spouse. The author points out pitfalls to be avoided and shows how to have a happy marriage by injecting the grace of God and the principles of Christian courtesy into every aspect of family life”.

    So far I am enjoying this book as much as I enjoyed reading White’s “Messages to Young People” five years ago during my depression period. Her wisdom and encouragement were one of the good things I experienced during those sad times.

    What I’m Listening To:

    As I’m writing this blog post, I’m listening to a strings cover of Pachelbel Canon In D. 

    What I’m Wearing:

    At the moment I am wearing my work uniform since I just got off work. Let me peel that off, and why am I still wearing my shoes…in my room!? I wear these clothes so much during the week that I might as well sell all my other wardrobe. On second day thought, NOT GONNA HAPPEN! I love my suits and ties.

    What I’m Doing This Weekend:

    • Ironing clothes
    • Cleaning the church with my parents before the Sabbath.
    • See my girlfriend if she is available. 
    • Continue reading The Adventist Home
    • Job searching online
    • Vacuuming 
    • Dusting
    • Going to church
    • Hitting the gym
    • Blogging and do some creative writing

    What I’m Looking Forward To Next Goals

    New Goals and Conquering Them!πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎ

    What Else Is New?
    As requested by one of my awesome supervisors, I’m now researching and writing five facts about unique days, such as National Eat a Peach Day and National Sweet Tea Days. I do those because she needs five facts for the cafeteria signs she creates each day.  I’m happy lend a hand wherever and whenever I can.

    How was your Wednesday going? Let me know and I’ll be sure to respond. 

    Be well. Be groovy, and God Bless.

    By David Harris

    I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
    My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
    I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
    Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
