Troll and Bilbo

Here is an unpainted sculpture I made of a Troll holding Bilbo by his leg. It comes out of the book The Hobbit. I will have more pictures of the finished version later.

My Photography

Here are some of my favorite photos I have taken over the years. I don't consider myself as a photographer but it's fun to take pictures.

The World of DQ 1973

Here is an article I scanned out of a Dairy Queen magazine from 1973 featuring my families store. There are some really great photos of my family in there. Reminds me of working at Sonic with my own Dad. In fact, it's exactly the same thing lol. I also added photos of the Next Generation. Sorry I don't have more photos. Maybe I'll add more later when I get them from Alana, Krystal, Bobby or Billy

Feeling Sorry For Myself, So Come On Get happy!!!

I can remember when I was younger how much more positive I was. I remember not worrying too much about my own feelings and trying to help others feel better about themselves (with the exception of my brothers and sisters but that's just natural). I think I've become so much more selfish now. It's not the fact that I am not doing service (it would help) but I really don't have much free time with school and work. On my day off I really need my day off because of information overload from the week.

Sometimes I think it's because of boredom. I feel kind of like that grumpy old man that sits on his porch and yells at the kids because there is nothing more exciting to do. I do feel very stressed out because of classes I have to take. I feel I will never understand Math or Biology and I know others will share their dreadful experiences. I have become more of an honest person than I ever have and that seams to have gone in the wrong direction. It felt good to get the truth out about my feelings but at the same time I feel distanced from every group and world given to me.

I'm not smart enough, I'm not dumb enough, I'm not religious enough and I don't care to fight against it, I'm not mature enough but I don't get along with the youngsters. I don't fit in with any political crowd so it makes it hard to talk politics with my family or my friends who are at both extremes of the political spectrum.

But don't worry. I love them all very much and I know that they love me. My Mom is always right when she says it is easier to find the negative than the positive. Does this mean that there is more bad in the world? Sometimes I think that this is the case but it's little bad things. The Bigger things are always great. They are always that much more epic that they help to balance the scales.

Getting married will always out do the little arguments Mandi and I have. Having 9 siblings to grow up with will always be remembered more than the times they hit me. Getting an education will outlast all of the money I could have made working in a job that I don't like. My love of English and Humanities out weigh how much I hate taking Biology and Math. My love for writing outweigh how terrible I am at grammar and spelling. People told me I had a nice smile even with my buck teeth. I love Fridays more than I hate Mondays. And Pizza is always good in my book!

Great. Now that I am though feeling sorry for myself I almost feel like I shouldn't post it. But I will because I don't want this to be a waste of time. That would be a negative. So on a positive note. I'm excited to go to my astronomy class in 15 min Woo hoo! and I have my Tolkien class today :)
