so many things...
why do i always update at the most inconvenient times?
things that have happened since my last update: christmas, hangin with Paul and Stein, World Mission Summit, New Years and hangin out with people from Auburn for the last 2 whole days plus night. i'd say that's a pretty good christmas break.
Christmas was nice, but i really never got in the "christmas spirit." i wanted to be, but it just didn't happen. which made the whole thing sadder in itself. my favorite gift would be the ipod. i'm putting every movie i own on it. well, eventually...
the ipod did come in handy for the drive to the World Mission Summit in Louisville since it's like a 10 hour drive. the drive wasn't bad at all either. the hours flew and we never got into any traffic jams. it's always good to do card magic tricks to make the drive faster. even when a certain someone says your tricks suck b/c you separated all but 2 of the black and red cards... (Jena) the conference itself was pretty good, but not really awesome if that makes sense. I guess i was hoping for a direction in missions, and since that never came it was somewhat of a bummer in that sense. but i know there are reasons for everything. the worship was awesome and so were the speakers. we even got to see the WORLD premiere of End of the Spear. and when i say WOLRD, i mean WORLD. to emphasize this, let me repeat: the first people in the WOLRD to see this movie. i think it's comin to theaters everywhere (maybe). i thought the movie was ok. i cried a few times in it, if that says anything. i don't want to say it's bad though, b/c i know alot of the money it makes is gonna go to their missions projects, so go see it if it comes out! i don't think it's a bad thing, but my favorite part of the whole conference wasn't the missionaries or the worship, it was getting to know people in the group i went with. i don't think i've ever laughed so hard or long. i even got to know some on a whole different level... like the many nights with allison. it was difficult to sleep, but somehow i survived. (that was a joke if you actually decide to start reading this)
i got a whole Hope's cheesecake today. and that made my day. i also won just about everything that Erin, Daniel, Allison and me played. that made my day too. 2 under par and 3 hole in ones at Pirate's Island in Gulf Shores. yeah baby! plus, darts, pool and even tennis. to top it off, Texas beat USC in the last seconds of the game! it was so awesome. and a coupla nights ago, West Virginia beat Georgia. guess who West Virginia's QB is??? the one and only Patrick White who graduated from my high school and led Daphne to State Champs. i loooove football. i'm not going to talk about Auburn's performance however.
ok, it's late and i could type so much more but i'm lazy and sleepy. so with that, goodnight.

it's really simple. first you need a program to copy (rip) the dvd to your computer. if you don't have a dvd ripper, i'd suggest PQ. you can download it online for free and get 5 to 9 mins. of free copying to make sure it works. if you want to copy the whole movie at once, you gotta buy it. the web site is http://www.pqdvd.com/dvd-to-ipod-video-converter.html. once you rip the dvd, you save it to a file. then on itunes, click file on the upper right corner. then click add file to library. now it's in your library! from the library, drag it to your ipod folder or however you do it. hope that helps.
