I'm Jacob Bird and I approve this post

In my reading of blogs, I ran across Noel Heikkinen's Blog. He even wrote about my overall feelings of the "Biggest Election of our Lifetimes". And after discovering Noel's Blog, my wanderings brought me to the blog of the Paul Johnson!

Why I Read This

Would anyone be interested if I wrote blurbs about"Why I read This"? Kinda a quick review of a feed or website I read.

A new life

I ran across a article that is slightly related the iHome. Someone decided to take a Mac SE/30 and upgrade it to a media server. Interesting read.

more on Thoughts

Maybe a better way to explain my position is that I feel like Route 4 is under construction. I see the signs saying their working on things. I see the roads torn up as though they have been doing work. But I've been in the traffic jam for a while and I'm not seeing any construction workers do anything. Being stuck in traffic doesn't seem as bad when you actually see why traffic is so slow and that they're getting things fixed so that the slowdowns don't have to keep happening.

(Thanks to Dave for Route 4)

Actually I had promised myself that I wouldn't blog about Kapps and Diana's Wedding, but it isn't about the wedding.

I don't know of anyone who doesn't ever want to get married. This weekend I got thinking to "Am I ever going to get married?" I'm pretty sure I will some day. She's just waiting at the other end of the construction. Who is she? God has put someone on my heart, but told me now is not the time to act on it. More construction (waiting). I want to complain, but then I'm reminded of Jacob in Genesis who had to work for 14 years to marry his wife. God sure likes to teach patience.

School's at the point where it could occupy every waking moment just to keep up. But in the Big Scheme of things (as in following God) it doesn't really even matter. A couple days ago I talked to a EE Grad student who says he usually spends about 2 minutes reading each lab report he has to grade. Most students put an hour or more into these reports. Depressing, huh? Often I want to get caught up in school, but then I'm reminded that I'm not here on Earth just for school. It may be part of what I do, but it shouldn't consume every waking moment. This is all rolling into the heaviness that has been on me lately. When I graduate I don't really want a typical 40-a-week job, yet I don't think that my dream job would be a reality. The general job direction I'd love to go has crappy pay and hours and may not provide a ton of job security. It's frustrating how the future can be so set in stone yet so unknown.

It all is coming down to doing either what I have a passion for or doing what is safe.

Who is left?

With everyone getting a blog, it made me wonder who doesn't have one yet. As far as I can tell, Aeron and Ryan have yet to blog. I know we have goofy pictures of both of them, but we also need to be graced by their witty writings.
