lakers game!

Samuel and i went to a Lakers game, we had awesome seats. Samuel bought them on EBay the night before, i don't know how he found them at 3 in the morning. but they were awesome. the Lakers did alright. Kobe had a season low for points and Far mar had a season high. when the game was about 5 Min's from being over and the Lakers pretty much won for sure. (they won by 27 points) we moved down to get like almost court side seats. it was crazy being so close to the ball game.

it was a great wednesday!

       I miss the days when Wednesday night was the night i went to church and got to learn about God and see all my friends. wow i have so many good memories. i learn a lot of things from Steve Scott, Jason Kelly, Jeremy William's (Jeremy you weren't the youth pastor but you were the guys leader and i learned a lot of good lessons) Ben Verdoes, and Eric barns. i would not be the person i am today if it wasn't for you guys teaching me life lessions. i miss having a awesome church family. i hope i can find a good church down here. 
         wahoo the Lakers won tonight. it was a close game. Samuel and i headed over to the gym after the NBA game and we played a couple (8) games of basketball. i lost every single game... :( but it was still a workout.

friends, Warm Beach, Camp,

       I have pretty much lost all contact with my my friends from Washington besides Obeyah and Kristian Enge. i guess everyone else is to busy or don't even care. thanks Obeyah and Kristian for taking the time to call me! well i guess it is hard and maybe pointless to talk to a friend in another state. but its always nice to hear what's going on up in Warm Beach/Stanwood area.
     What's new up in Washington? i hear pastor josh came out with a new book? has anyone read it yet? my wonderful mom is send it down here in the mail right now! can't wait to read what that man of God has to say! if i lived 2 hours away the church that josh brooks is the pastor at i would drive there to hear him speak. 
      This is gonna be the first time in a long time that i will not be attending the Lights of Christmas! thank you Jesus. and the first time in about 6 years i will not be at the middle school or high school retreat. i hope everyone has fun this year! 
       I have finally got settled in down here. for a couples months i thought about moving back up. Because i missed everyone and i had a super sweet job offer! but there was a couple reasons i moved here. number 1. i do not like the rain. (oh by the way it does rain down here. but the amazing thing about California is that when it rains it rains in the middle of the night and by the time you wake up it has stopped and by the time 12:30 rolls around the sun is shinning and the puddles are gone. number 2. i love chilling with my brother Samuel. and 2 weeks out of the year that he came up and visited was not enough. number 3. I was sick of getting treated like a camp kid. (for example). if i did something wrong at the camp, like ran a stop sign, or as a joke gave a friend of mine that worked at camp a little gift that was pretty dirty. well instead of calling me and talking to me about it since i am 19 years old. they had my dad come into a little meeting to tell him about it. not saying anything to me.  well the right thing to do would of been to talk to me about it since i am a adult kinda living at home  (i was 4 days from moving to california) why is my dad responsible for the actions that i do? he's not. number 4. my best friend jonathan was going to college down here! 
      You guys are proably so bored now so i will stop writing. i miss everyone! i would love a phone call from any of you! or just a text.

my weekend

sorry for all of you that check my blog. (glory, Mom and Dad, Samuel, Obeyah,Jon phelps)  i haven't posted anything for about a month. hope all is well. i had a good weekend. got to stay the night at Biola and chill with my friend Jonathan! on saturday night. my plan was to get out of work at 8:30 and go play some basketball and go se oo7 but stuff happened at work so i was unable to get out of work until 10:30 and then oo7 isnt coming out until this coming weekend.  well i ended up just taking it easy with jonathan. and then waking up at 7 on sunday to go to saddle back church, with Jonathan and Darren. wow that church is huge. its like a city. and everyone is over there fifty's. i wanted to meet some people my age. then i got to chill at Noah's 1st birthday. that was a lot of fun. Sunday night had a meeting at work which was a big waste of time. drove up to Biola after the meeting and met up with Jonathan and went to midnight madness! (its not a club or rave. it was at Biola)
