November 30, 2018Now It's Friday
Today I had Bible study again in the morning, but Mom gave me a ride in because Dad had one of the cars and the other one is in the shop right now. After Bible study, I went to class and everything was fun until I got to math, and found out that I have a test on Monday, and we're not allowed to use calculators because I accidentally showed Bellefeuille how to get the answer for any problem from the calculator we use. Needless to say, I'm not the favorite person in the class any more. Afterwards, I rode the bus home which was a horribly bumpy ride, and then worked on some homework with Mom before laying in bed for awhile. When Dad got home, we went over to the Roisum's for awhile and hung out, then came home and I showered, did a little homework, and went to bed.


November 29, 2018 It's Thursday!
I went in for Bible Study this morning, and then made it through all my classes, and then after school, I went straight into town. I met Johnna at Caribou coffee and we hung out for awhile, and then we went and picked up Kylie from a job interview for awhile before going to Taco Johns and getting food. We all hung out for a little longer, and then I went inside and changed into my uniform for work. It was super busy, and everything was going horribly and everyone was stressed and a few customers were like cussing everyone out, but I was in drive-thru which is like it's own little world so I got to ignore everything and it was great. After work, I got a taco, and then went home, and realized that I was supposed to pick up Dad after work, so turned around and picked him up from work, and then went home again and went to bed. 


November 28, 2018 Surprises aren't fun
This morning I checked my phone on the way to school, and found out that Karen had canceled for leading at youth group tonight, so I called Caleb and we decided I would lead, despite it being my week off. School went well, and we had nachos for lunch which were really good except they didn't have any chocolate milk. After school, I went home and grabbed some stuff, and then I went to drop Jana off at work, ran in to Sue Krause at the YakShak in Frazee while getting a trim, and then I finally made my way over to the church where I got everything setup, then went and picked up Tevia, and then we practiced, with it being only myself, Tevia, and Allison. Youth went well, and then afterwards we went home and I went to bed.


November 27, 2018Back on Minecraft
This morning I went to school and had Bible study like most mornings, and then I had school. The wifi wasn't working for awhile during 4th hour, so I went and talked to Mr. Jacobson about the possibilities of Microchip implants in the future for awhile, and then I went to lunch. After lunch I finished all my school stuff, and then I went home. Dawson was at our house when I got home, so I said hi to him, did some Biology studying with Mom so that I don't fail my exams, and then I went to work. Work went well, and then afterwards I went and said hi to Matti over at Burger King, and then went home and played Minecraft with one of my friend's 10 year old brothers, and then I went to bed after studying some music theory. 


November 26, 2018Back in the Grind
Thanksgiving weekend is sadly over and that means going back to school... and even worse, doing all the homework I was supposed to do over the weekend that I didn't. I had breakfast at the Palace Cafe this morning with Caleb, Matti, Zenia, and Codie, and then went up to school and was about 10 seconds late to first hour. After school, I went home and had a snack, and then went in to work to do homework. There had been some sort of emergancy at work with someone being rushed to the ER apparetally, so they asked me to start almost an hour early. I worked until 8, having to do dishes for the first time, while also having to deal with a lot of hangry people. After work, I got a free dinner (up to $10) for coming in early, and then I worked on some homework before going home and finishing my homework. Then I went to bed.


November 25, 2018Back on the Team
This morning I had to get up early because I was playing with the worship team at church this morning, so I had to get all my stuff ready for that. We got to church and I got all setup, and then we did Sunday School and stuff. Everything went well, except at one point my laptop and keyboard tipped over which was slightly embarrassing. After church, we hung out for a bit, and then we went home. I changed right away and went over to Grandpa and Nana's for lunch, and then came home after eating some of their tacos. I just hung out at home and tried not to fall asleep for the rest of the day. Then, I went to bed and wow did I sleep good.


November 24, 2018 Lots of Oles 
This morning I slept in a bit, and then we went over to Grandpa and Nana's for brunch. We hung out there for awhile, then went back to our house for music practice and stayed at our house for awhile. Eventually, we went back to Grandpa and Nana's where we hung out for awhile longer, and then I had to go to work. I left early and worked on more of my math homework, and then after my shift I bought a bunch of Potato Oles as Dad had stopped by and told me to buy $10 of Oles to bring to Grandpa and Nana's. I went home and watched Death Valley Days with them, then said goodbye to everyone and went home and went to sleep.


November 23, 2018Late Night Movies
Dad woke me up this morning, pretty early like around 9:30. We drove over to Grandpa and Nana's where I cooked some spam and had breakfast, and then we hung out there for awhile. Jen took all of us into Frazee to go to the Thrift Store because there was a bag sale. Jevin and I went out and explored by the river, and then they dropped off me at our house so that I could pick up some stuff and a car. I went back to Grandpa and Nana's for lunch, and then Jevin and I did some script writing for a short film we're working on. Afterwards, Jen and I went out and took some pictures for me, and then I went back home to change, and then took Jana took work. After dropping her off, I went to Taco Johns and worked on homework until my shift started. After work, I ran home, and then I went over to Grandpa and Nana's for dinner, and then I went with Jevin and Tevia into Detroit Lakes and we took cool night pictures in town. Afterwards, we went over …


November 22, 2018HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
Mom only let us sleep in till about 8:15 this morning before she made us get up and start cleaning before everyone got here. Around 11am, we finished the cleaning, so Jana, Tevia and I drove over to Grandpa and Nana's in the Subaru and said hi to Davin and Jen & Co. and then Chris and Sarah and Veronica showed up too. After awhile, all the kids piled in my car and we all went back to our house, where Sherri and Dawson and Steven had come over and so we then played with them and then Hazel came over and we had lunch and there was a lot of good food. After eating, we went back over to Grandpa and Nana's for awhile before all the kids went ice skating in Frazee at the rink, and then we came home and had dinner before watching Doctor Strange, and then going back to our house for bed. 


November 21, 2018 My Bestie Came to Visit
This morning I had to be at school around 8:15, cause it was STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) and I was supposed to go down to the Elementary school with a bunch of other kids to teach cool stuff for a while. I got put with 3rd and 4th graders teaching them how to create a short animation joke video in the Scratch programming interface, which turned out to actually be kinda fun. Afterwards, I went up to the high school again and got back in time for 4th hour. After school, I went home to relax, and then got a call from Janessa saying she was about an hour away, and did I want to hang out. I obviously said yes and so we hung out for about an hour before going and singing to the old people at the Nursing Home and then we went home and practiced music for church on Sunday before I went to bed.


November 20, 2018Almost the Weekend
This morning I went into school and had Bible study, and then afterwards, I went to all my classes like normal. Ta didn't want to give us a bunch of homework right before Thanksgiving, so for the next two days we're just watching Hasan Minhaj on Netflix. After school, I ran home, and then I went to work where I worked on math homework until my shift started. At 8 when I got off, Morganne and I had dinner together, and then I went home and played on my computer a little before bed.


November 19, 2018Veterans Day Assembly
This morning I had breakfast with Caleb and Zenia at the Palace Cafe, and then went up to school. We had a veterans day assembly today, so for the second hour, the choir went and sang the songs of the army for assembly, and then afterwards, we went to different classes where we heard stories from the veterans. For the 3rd hour, we were hearing stories from Ike Fisher and one of his friends, and then during 4th hour, a guy who was very anti-war after surviving the Vietnam war. The rest of school went well, and then after school, I went home and had Mom help me with some biology homework before going to work. I worked till 8:20ish, then came home, did some more homework, and then went to bed.


November 18, 2018Sitting at Home Sunday
This morning I slept in a bit, and then got ready for church, but then Mom and Dad said I couldn't wear jeans to church, so I had to go change. Church went by pretty quickly, and then afterwards we had a fellowship dinner where there was a lot of good food. After church, we went home and watched "Black Panther" on the TV and then we went to bed.


November 17, 2018Super Skating Saturday
This morning I woke up around 11 in the morning, and then slowly made my way upstairs. Dad had us clean our bedrooms, then we had to clean the attic, and then we had to go put wood in the barn. After we finished, I went into Detroit Lakes and went ice skating with Leonie until about 7:30, and then I came home and went to bed.


November 16, 2018 Sleepy Friday 
This morning I was able to sleep in a little longer than usual, and then I got up and after family devotions, I drove over to Grandpa and Nana's house where I had breakfast and hung out with Nana before heading to school. I made it to school just in time, and then in the middle of first-hour we had a lockdown drill, and an ambulance even showed up for some reason (apparently someone overdosed in the bathroom). The rest of school went pretty slowly. After school, I went home and cleaned and hung out around until Thad and Ginny and Grandpa and Nana all came over for dinner. We had food, and then afterwards, Mom and Ginny watched a movie and then I went to bed.


November 15, 2018 Another Day
This morning I got up and took a nice fast shower, then after family devotions I took off to school for Bible Study. We talked about 1 Corinthians 16:14 and then I challenged them to try and show love to one person they normally wouldn't today. After that, I had all my classes, and then I went home quick, got cleaned up and changed, and then drove in to work where I worked on some homework until it was time for my shift to start. Everything at work went smoothly, and then after work I had a taco before driving home and going to bed.


November 14, 2018 Big Give Night
This morning I got up a showered, and then I got ran out by Mom cause she didn't want me to use all the hot water, so then I went back to bed. I eventually got back up, and went to school. School was pretty boring, except for during advisory, instead of just sitting and being bored, I was learning how to do stuff with Robots and Scratch for STEAM day as I'll be teaching in the elementary school. After school, I ran up to our church to borrow a cord, and then went over to Harvest where we started preparing for our Big Give night, aka the last night we were raising money for missions. We got everything set up and then we somehow pulled it off, despite everything that was just waiting to go wrong. Just in Frazee alone, we raised $5,235.69 and in the state of Minnesota, partnered with all the youth groups, we raised $430,228.05 in one night. Afterwards we had pizza and ice cream, and then I brought Jana and Tevia home and went to bed.


November 13, 2018 More School
This morning I got up and drove to school for Bible Study and then had all my classes as normal. I was a little bored, so I went and visited with Ta Fett during my 4th hour for a while and talked with her about what classes I need to take next semester, and then I decided to leave school a little early and go home. I studied biology at home and then went to work where I finished my math homework before clocking in. I was working with Morganne tonight, and so after work, we got food and then chilled for a little bit before I drove home and hung out with Jana for awhile before going to bed.


November 12, 2018 Back to School...
This morning I almost died, having to get up at like 6AM again. I took a quick shower, and then drove into Frazee and had breakfast with Caleb, Codie, and Zenia. After breakfast, I went to school, and then after school, I quickly drove home so that I could do some homework with Mom. After that, I went to Taco Johns and worked on more homework until my shift started, and then I worked until 8pm. After work, I grabbed some food, and then went over to Harvest Church so that we could practice the music for Wednesday. The practice could have gone better, to say the least. After practice, I went home and went to bed. 


November 11, 2018 Going Home Already... :,(
This morning we had waffles and french toast and sausage for breakfast, and then we went downstairs for a bittersweet final worship service and message for Jason. Afterwards, everyone went upstairs where we took a group picture, and then after lots of hugs and exchanging contact information, we said goodbye. We made it about 5 minutes down the road when we had to turn around and go get Karri's suitcase. Then, about 20 minutes later down the road, we had to turn around again and go get Tristan's suitcase. We eventually made it to Watertown where we stopped for lunch around 1pm, and then they dropped me off at A&W where Mom picked me up and brought me home. I told everyone about my travels, and then went to my basement to get caught up on some work before shaving, showering, and going to bed. 


November 10, 2018Searching the Mall
This morning we slept till about 8, and then we got up and had breakfast like normal. After breakfast, we went downstairs for worship and the first session, and then we had lunch. Lunch was pretty good, and then it was into town for our free time. For our free time, we were going to do a scavenger hunt in the mall with JD, Bobby, and Emilio. We got to the mall in Sioux Falls, and our group won, and then we went and visited a few other stores before heading back to camp. We had some funky food for dinner, and then we had another worship time and session, during which the speaker talked about faith. Afterwards, we played the Underground Church game, which was really fun, and then we sat around and talked until bed.


November 09, 2018Being the Hands and Feet
This morning we got up around 8 and went upstairs for breakfast. Afterwards, we had a little time, and then we had worship and our first session, with our speaker, Jason Maupin. Afterwards, we grabbed a bag lunch from upstairs, and then drove into Sioux Falls for our service projects. First we went to a place that was kinda like a homeless shelter, called St. Francis House where we moved a bunch of boxes from inside into a van outside, and then we met up with our other group, and then girls stayed there while us guys left to go work at the Faith Temple Food Giveaway, where we sorted a bunch of food, and then at 4pm, anyone could come in and get food, and we would help them bring it out to their cars. About 300 people showed up, so we were pretty busy, and then we left around 5 to go back to camp for dinner. After dinner, we had our next session and worship time, which was all about taking off our masks and being real. Then, some guys from Faith…


November 08, 2018CDYC 2018
This morning I got up, and packed as quickly as I could. I put all my stuff next to the door, and then went to school for 1st hour and about 5 minutes of 2nd hour. Then, I went outside, and met Ben, Mya, and Chloe and we went into DL where we met the rest of our group. We loaded up into the van, and then we stopped in Moorhead to have lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. We kept driving after lunch, and then made it to Inwood Iowa eventually, after driving 25 on the interstate because of a blizzard. We had pizza for dinner, and then after a bunch of ice breaker games and hanging out with all of our friends from last year, we went to bed around 11.


November 07, 2018Youth Group Night
This morning I slept in as late as I could, and then quick got up and Dad gave me a ride to school. After school, Dad picked me up and brought me home, where I grabbed my stuff, and then went right back into town to go to the church. We had practice, except there weren't a ton of us, and then after youth group, I met with Caleb and Codie to try and get a plan laid down for next week, as it is our big outreach night and Speed the Light fundraiser final night. After our meeting, I went home and went to bed.


November 06, 2018 Back To School
It was hard getting up again at 6:30 this morning to go back to school after a 3-day weekend, but I somehow did it. I had Bible study before school, and then all my classes went well. After school, Dad and Grandpa picked me up, and then I went home and had some pizza before doing a photoshoot for a client, who wanted pictures of her kids, for which the profits went to support Speed the Light. After I finished the photos, I hopped in the car and accidentally drove into the ditch, and then drove back out and went to work at Taco John's, where I was covering a shift for Morganne. Work went pretty quickly, and then afterwards, I got a free Nachos and Cheese as it was National Nacho Day, and then almost drove into the Burger King sign as I'm not used to driving in snow. I decided to go visit Matti who works at BK since I was already basically there, and so I pestered her for a little while before going home, eating some more pizza, and then getting t…


November 05, 2018 Raking More Lawns
This morning I went in to have breakfast with Codie, Caleb, Zenia, and Olivia at the palace cafe around 9, and then we ran over to the church, picked up some more people, and then went and raked more lawns until about 12, when I had to go home. At home, Dad needed help with some chores, so I moved wood into the barn, took the battery out of the scooter and stored it in the barn, and then tried to get my motor bike running one last time before storing it in the barn as well. After I finished all my chores, I went inside and got ready for work, and then I went into town and did some homework at Taco John's before clocking in and working until 8. I drove home afterwards, and went to bed.


November 04, 2018 Ice Skating and Dairy Queen
This morning I woke up to Dad calling me on my phone wanting to know what my plan was, and so I talked to him before falling asleep, and being woken up a second time by Grandpa telling me I should probably think about getting up. I rolled out of bed, had some breakfast, got all packed up, and then went to church. After church, I had the girls ride home with me, and then after eating, I went and met Codie at the Ice Arena where we skated for a few hours, and then went over to Dairy Queen and ate food and talked about life for another hour or so, before I figured I should probably get home, so I went back to Grandpa and Nana's to pick up Jana and Tevia, and then we went home. Dad got a deer, and so he cut that up while we hung out inside, and then we went to bed.


November 03, 2018 Raking Leaves for Missions
I slept in until my alarm woke me up at 9 this morning, and then went and had some breakfast with Grandpa. I got all ready for the day, and then took off for Frazee at a quarter to 10, where I put some gas in the car, and then went over to the church. Caleb was there with the van, and a few of us were going over by DL to rake leaves. We finally made it over there and the yard was huge. After about two hours, we were finally done, and he paid us $200 to do it. Afterwards, we went to the Pit 611 and got two pizzas, and then went back to Frazee. I went back into Detroit Lakes to the ice arena, where I skated for about 2 hours before coming back to Grandpa and Nana's. Nana and I watched a movie, and then I took a shower and went to bed. 


November 02, 2018 Homeschool Ice Skating
I made it to school today about 10 minutes before class, and then had a history unit exam first hour, which I think I did pretty well on. Then, half way through 4th hour (which is one of my open hours), I left and went home and picked up Jana. We drove into DL and had lunch at Taco John's, and then we went over to the ice arena and took advantage of the free ice skating for homeschoolers. I eventually had to leave, and I made it back to school in time for my College Algebra test, which didn't seem to go as well. After school, I swung by home, then went into town and worked on my Pre-Solo exam for flight school, and then I worked until about 8:20 at Taco Johns before going over to Grandpa and Nana's where I stayed the night.


November 01, 2018 A New Month
This morning I got up and went into school where we had Bible study like always. Then, all my classes went well and we had pizza for breakfast in History because Keenan was able to stay off his phone for two weeks in a row during class. After school, I went home and then Dad and I went and pulled out Nana's dock, where I also went for a swim. We came home and then Mom and Dad went to Tevia's basketball game while I stayed home and Skyped with Janessa, before having dinner, and then went to bed.
