But in the meantime, I like to write and philosophize about truth and participate in all things speculative. I like to travel, and I like having long hair, and on occasion, I enjoy algebra. Some of my favorite pass-times include literary analysis, editing other people’s papers, and often, using a thesaurus. At any given moment, you might find me being nomadic, gushing about kitties, or not sleeping.
Nowhere really feels like home anymore, but the Lord is inescapably faithful, and I am regularly humbled by the recurring realization that I'm a dumb-dumb without Him.
Which, of course, is just the way I like it.
"Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, whom God made our wisdom and our righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Therefore, as it is written, 'Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.'" - 1 Corinthians 1:20-31
PS, I go to Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, and I work at Target. It rules.
Now for my LiveJournal persona. My name "the__tenth" comes from an inside joke I once shared with my 9th grade French II class. You see, I once drew and labeled a Hobbit Hole in French for a project, and the rest of my class (which pretty much consisted of the apparently cool as junk 11th and 12th grade male population in its entirety) started calling me Gandalf because of it. But when they realized that I was not in fact old, a dude, or bearded, they came to the conclusion that it would much better suit me to label my condition something like the tenth member of the Fellowship. And from then on out, it stuck. Voila: "the__tenth". As for my entries, they generally include ramblings about the especially ridiculous aspects of my life, punctuated by frequent Lord of the Rings nostalgia. One thing you can be sure of, though, is that I've always got something going on, and I've always got some outrageous story to tell as a result. You know, it's a lot of work leading such an interesting life, but I guess I'm as good a candidate as any for the job. :]?
