Isn't Kindergarten Just Nuts?

Sometimes I wonder how things get this way. And then I remember what Forest Gump said about how life is like a box of chocolates and you never know what you're going to get.

Well it's summer break from school! And actually I have close friend folk (such as Monica, Dustin, Zach, etc.) that are not only out for summer but out for life.

I feel done with school kind of, I'm ready though certain I will miss it and I am also unsure for what exactly happens after, but I like that, there definitely is that sense of adventure.
But I love it right now for the most part (meaning I'll be ready for the next thing when it comes). I'm working nights pretty much full time in the hospital, and taking frequent adventure vacations to selective places.

I was just in California! I'm going to Florida! I'm going the Idaho! I'm in Tenessee! I'm up for much more! The future holds much more places I'm sure! Ha! Exclamation! Outrageous Outburst!

Well I'm at work now... I need to change some dressings on some knees! Take Care and be safe Please!

Question that I want your opinion about: What makes time relative?

Stay Close to Jesus, Seriously. :)

West Coast Gangstas.

We are the coolest people I've ever known.

is this pompous? I miss us all together.

Zach, whenever something happens without him with the roomies (meaning Phil, Dust, and I) He makes these negative West Coast comments. So I sing this West Coast Gangstas tune.

Zach I love you and the East Coast.

Forces that Rule the World.

Gravity. Electricity, Magnetism. Nuclear Force. Mind. Heart. Soul. Body.

Gravity. Warps and curves in the fabric of space and time. gravity is a feeble force.

Electricity, Magnetism, and Nuclear Forces are much stronger. unpredictable and wild.

Tame the electricity, magnetism, and nuclear forces inside your mind, heart, body, soul to live life at it's fullest. Don't let the
weak forces of gravity bring you down, work with this to guide you to meaning.

An hour ago
I felt so low
I almost drowned

Driving around this
messed up town

It's pretty, it's only
I felt so lonely
And I knew all night

I'd never find a face
That could understand
How much I miss you now

don't let the panic bring you down.

(whistle) ooh...ooh..ohoo.

Here's a little song i wrote,
you might want to sing it note for note,

don't worry, be happy
in every life we have some trouble,
when you worry you make it double
don't worry, be happy

look at me im happy,
don't worry, be happy

i give you my phone number,
when your worried, call me,
i make you happy

Hey my peeps! Life has been crazy great! School, work, and play, all serving the Lord I pray.

question: would you rather forget who you were or who everyone else was?

Goodies to Share.

A time when Tyler Morgan (from camp Mivoden) came to visit and I made a bunch of people go out to eat at the Olive Garden, they didn't know him at all. p.s. he took the picture, that's why he's not in it.

Cell Culture?

Zach will be putting on a stage performance and gallery showing on thursday night March 13! We shot a movie downtown in an alley way as an intro. We were supposed to look like people that were drawn, we did look like Tim Burton creations, edward scissorhands people/homeless/zombies/mimes, etc. The idea was to have us moving around in an alley and at the end of the shot the camera would enter into somebody's mouth and into the body, where Zach will present his art inspired by cellular structures in the body. Here's the cast of the film and the stagehands.

In the Mind of Matt Thiessen

I heard the reverberating footsteps
Synching up to the beating of my heart,
And I was positive that unless I got myself together,
I would watch me fall apart.
When I got tired of running from you
I stopped right there to catch my breath
There your words they caught my ears
You said, “I miss you son. Come home”
And my sins, they watched me leave
And in my heart I so believed
The love you felt for me was mine
The love I’d wished for all this time
And when the doors were closed
I heard no I told so’s
I said the words I knew you knew
Oh God, Oh God I needed you
God all this time I needed you, I needed you
And I so hate consequences
And running from you is what my best defense is
I hate these consequences
Because I know that I let you down
Now I don't wanna deal with that

I look under the tree
But there’s nothing to see
Cause it’s a broken heart that you’re giving me
I can’t figure you out
Is this what Christmas is all about
Cause it’s a broken heart that you’re giving me
Jesus, I plead
Please purify me
Make my heart clean
Drench me with your mercy
Jesus, I pray
I love you, I need you
For the rest of my days
I swear I will seek you
To the best of my ability
I'm practicing humility
And I lay myself before
'Cause less is more.
You cried wolf
The tears they soaked your fur
The blood dripped from your fangs
You said, "What have I done?"
You loved that lamb
With every sinful bone
And there you wept alone
Your heart was so contrite
You said, "Jesus, please forgive me of my crimes
Sanctify this withered heart of mine
Stay with me until my life is through
And on that day please take me home with you"

Way down on 3 South.

I'm at work right now at Memorial Hospital floor 300 south! It's 12:46 a.m.. And I sitting in the nursing station with all my homies or co-workers, Nurses and CNAs alike. Right now is the down time, we get to sit and wait for a uncomfortable patient to call and then treat them accordingly. I have some good patients. One was hurting real bad, I gave some pain medicine and then started to talk about dancing to distract her, we both got really excited. She was talking to me about the dances she does and used to do, I talked about mine, we discussed the "chicken", "swing", "electric slide", ballroom "waltz" "two step" I started dancing around the room, she had to stay in bed. bummer.:) Also one of the CNA's working right now is super funny, she always tells me I have "soap opera" hair. I don't know what that means. but I don't do anything to it actually. We have matching color scrubs, she said, "Ryan's my friend, he's the only one who can dress like me." she just told someone they "smelled like a freshly cooked biscuit." I hold my gut and laugh. Tonight is good, but I have 2 tests on Friday and I should be studying. I also had a confused patient that kept ripping off her gown and throwing it on the floor confusedly and angrily. But alas, I am happy and wanted to tell you about some of the good and bad briefly, back to caring for patients and charting!

Losing it.

I have so much random junk in my mind.

we all wanna be unique but we all wear the same styles of clothes and brand names. I'm deciding to have a uniform for myself, same clothes all the time. is that a good conclusion to make?

From the book Mr. God this is Anna - "Being dead was nothing to get fussed about. Dying could be a bit of a problem, but not if you had really lived. Dying needed a certain amount of preparation and the only preparation for dying was real living, the kind of preparation old Granny Harding had made during her lifetime."

My mom has applied for a Science teacher job at Gem State Academy, around Boise Idaho.

I had chest pains last night when I was playing floor hockey... like a harsh side ache in my chest. I got too excited with an adrenaline rush I guess. I knew i wasn't having a Pulmonary embolism or MI, but what if i was? okay i wasn't obviously.

My sister got a tattoo in thailand on her shoulder.

I work nights in the hospital, i don't sleep that much i guess, but I feel good, maybe even better than before. am I wierd? I like work.

We have Nerf gun wars in the apartments tournament style... we stay up late, it's intense, we can get really into it.

Zach is going to have a art performance show and gallery viewing soon, we're going to wear outfits like some acrobats in cirque de soleil do and run around on stage.

Tomatoes are the fastest food we go through in our house. we buy them by the 20's and they run out fast.

Also I love you! what do you have to say pal?

how do you think an atheist answers the question Where do you think the impression that everyone has that there is a Right or Wrong comes from?

I need prayer, will you pray for me?

I'm going to grow a handle bar mustache.

check out Jon Foreman's new music, really good, check him out on myspace i guess.

Monica and I are on the cover of an Insight Magazine. find it and laugh, it's funny.

try toast with pesto spread across it, feta cheese, tomato slice, spinach, really fast and easy snack. I eat that all the time.

Friday is a good day.

Give me a Home.

Love dies, when Growth Stops.

Build me a home inside Your scars.
Build me a home inside Your song.
Build me a home inside Your open arms.
The only place I ever will belong.

Super Important Info.

today marks the start of Facial hair February which will lead to Mustache March

today is Tie-Day Friday, i'm currently wearing a necktie.

just thought I'd let you know, Zachs and my room is themed birds, don't have much birdstuff at this time... feel free to contribute cool bird art and pictures to our room.

Head somewhere Else.

I'm not sure why it always goes downhill
Why broken cisterns never could stay filled
I've spent ten years singing gravity away
But the water keeps on falling from the sky

And here tonight while the stars are blacking out
With every hope and dream I've ever had in doubt
I've spent ten years trying to sing these doubts away
But the water keeps on falling from my eyes

And heaven knows, heaven knows
I tried to find a cure for the pain
Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do
It would be a lie to run away

Hey Everyone! Keep falling in love with Jesus!

Musical Favoritism.

From Watashi Wa to Eager Seas and now the band is called LAKES. A free show in Arroyo Grande tomorrow 1/18. Find it!

The great musician Aaron Roche is touring the west coast. Jan 16 at PUC, JAN 19 AT WALLA WALLA, JAN 21 SPOKANE, FEB 4 LOMA LINDA, FEB 6 AND 7 AT LA SIERRA. Go and see him, he's creative.

These are some of my favorite musicians to listen to. Inspirational in lyrical and musical creativity.
