Lately I have been so tired I never was able to Blog at night.. All I wanted to do was get to sleep. But Now I have a few extra moments I can finally write one.

The last few days have been pretty good. I am getting aclimated into my new job quite well I think. I've been learning all the ropes and seeing how things need to be done in a Fortune 500 company. I've been enjoying the people I work with and they all want to help me out so that is good. I'm not sure why I've been going home so tired though. They haven't been workign me that hard or anything. I think my body is just trying to get used to the new schedule now. I am used to going to work at 10:00 not 8:00. Today was a lot better though, I wasn't tired at all today. I made it through my first week, and man, it seemed to go really quick. I'm actually kind of looking forward to next week already.

Tonight though I'm excited because I have the awsome opportunity to go see a movie with my darling and beautiful girlfriend of mine. Looking forward to that! TTFN

Today was a better day at work. I was actually able to accomplish some work today. I also found out that They will want me over at the other location most of the time Instead of the downtown location. I will be setting up my own cube and computer tomorrow there. I will probalby like it a little better at the other location anyway because it is quite a bit closer, and the parking is better. Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty good day.

After work I ended up going over to my church and I ended up re-keying the locks there. They wanted to setup a room/master key setup and I ended up getting them all to work like that. It was kind of fun. It was cool to figure all that stuff out. Anyway, it got late on me and I should head to bed. I was actually going to go to bed about an hour ago but Obie wanted to talk some. He just wanted to find somebody to debate with tonight or something. I ended up just having to tell him I needed to go so I could sleep. So yeah, I'm going to do that. Night!

Well, today was my first day of work at my new job. It was a fairly interesting day. I had to first take care of a bunch of paperwork stuff to begin with. After that a guy was supposed to come in and train me in my job. Turns out he called in sick today. So the manager ended up calling another guy from the other site that does the same job function over there, but he ended up getting in a car accident on the way over. It was a minor accident, but the doctor told him to take the day off and just return tomorrow. So turns out I never was able to go through my actual job training today. I ended up just going around and meeting a bunch of people and standing around doing nothing for a lot of the day. I didn't like being idle like that. I hope tomorrow I can actually get some work done.

After work today was really cool though. My extremly Hott girlfriend ended up taking me out to dinner tonight at Olive Garden. She wanted to celebrate my new job. She is too great! We had fun at dinner and then hung out for a little afterwards too. She still had some homework tonight though so she headed back to the school around 9:30. I already miss her. I hope I can sneak in a chance to see her tomorrow. Anyway.. I have to get to bed. I have class in the morning, then straight back to work. Night!

I am now offically Jobless at the moment. It was my last day at work today. New things start on monday morning 8:00am. I am excited about that. Also today I learned about how to re-key a lock. I am going to be going through the whole church and setting up new key systems with a master key as well. It should be pretty fun. Anyway, I can't write much because I need to head to bed. I want to get some good sleep because I'll be flying tomorrow at 2:00. Night!

Today things at work were pretty slow. It was nice as my last days there come to an end to make them be somewhat relaxing. It was still busy enough so we weren't bored though. After work Sam and I hung out for awhile at his house. Then we ended up going to see a movie. It turned out to be a pretty good friday night. Allie is down in NC with Erin this weekend so Sam and I are stuck here without our women. I hope we manage ok without them. =) Anyway.. I should get to sleep for my last day of work tomororw.

Today was my last day at work with Andy there. I ended up buying the guys lunch and cookies and gave Andy a Thankyou card for letting me work there for the past four years. Turns out it was Jason's birthday yesterday too so the cookies worked out well for a bday dessert. I also turned in my work key yesterday when Andy left. I hope Jason will be on time the next two days because he is the only one that can open up now.

After work I headed home and spend a few hours with my neighbor. I tried to encourage him to try again keeping alchohol free. Wednesday he ended up having a drink again so he has to start all over. We had a pretty good dissussion I think though and I hope God spoke to him through me in some way. After spending some time with him Allie and I went out to the Sunday Grill and had cheese fries and icecream. We then went over the book we are reading together and spent some time in prayer, and just talking with each other. It was pretty good. That will be the last time I see her until Sunday evening though because she is going to her dads this weekend. That is sad for me. What will I do without her? Ok I'm off to bed. Night!

Dear loyal fans, stalker freshman, and dearest family:
Greetings from the long lost city of Lynchburg, home of the T-Room and . . . yeah that's pretty much it. Standing in Jeremy's stead tonight, I, Allie Murray, have decided to update you on the many excitements of his life.

(Pretend the following is from Jeremy, and it'll make a lot more sense.)

I looked hott today. That's right, hott with a double-t. You just can't do any better than my dashing good looks, amazing clothes, and sexy hair. My girlfriend pretty much fell over backwards, but I caught her, because I am her knight in stripey-orange. (I also liked her semi-hippy/thrift-store/multicultural ensemble that she wore.)

After meeting my lady, I whisked her away to the land of chickens, wherest we used our fancy coupons and had a breakfast of burritos, buscuits, and milkshakes. And I enjoyed a cupcake that she brought me the night before (made from scratch, including the frosting.)

After our brief but beautiful encounter, I retreated to the cave of smelly computer nerds, and my girlfriend didn't need to worry about competition over her hott man from them. All day I slayed dragon-viruses, fixed server-demons, and lived my last Tuesday working at the Computer Exchange to the fullest.

After my day of battle, I went to church and talked with my pastor for a while. I could tell he thought I looked nice, but he didn't say anything except for "Arrr, arrr, arrr" like Tim the Toolman Taylor, because he is a man. And that is what men do. Arrr arrr arrr.

Finally, I returned to my castle, riding upon my vallient steed of a whale, Moby Dick. Shortly hereafter I will be going to bed, no doubt dreaming about the dragons I will slay tomorrow, the freshman I will tackle, the computers I'll spit on, the chicken nuggets I'll eat, the church I will go to, the people I'll confuse, the alarm I'll turn off at 8:20, and the floor I WILL VACCUUM BECAUSE IT'S GROSS!

Thanks for tuning in! Farewell.

Today was just another typical day. I went to work (My last monday there) and everything was pretty routine there. After work I came home and fixed someone's computer and then made some dinner. I talked to Obie for a little bit this evening too. Other then that I just caught up on some things piling up. It was fairly productive. Ok well anyway.. I'm off to bed. Night!

Today was a nice day. Obie came with me to church today and that was nice to have him there. God is changing him right in front of my eyes. Its pretty cool to see it! For those of you that are already, continue to pray for him. He is making great progress. After church I ended up going over to the Donnebergs for lunch. It was just a nice leasurly afternoon. I was able to get some of my aviation homework done while Allie was doing some of her homeowork. I also tried to sleep a little bit. Britt also has been moving into her apartment over the past few days. This evening we went over there to see her new place and help her setup a few things. All in all it was a great day. I am soooo tired right now though and I don't know why. It may have had something to do with the turkey and mashed potatoes I had for lunch. Anyway.. I am going ot head to bed. Night!

I am on my way to bed so I won't write much, but I did want to say that tonight was pretty cool. Allie and I went to go see "Cars" the animated movie. If you haven't seen it yet I would really recommend it. It was one of the better movies I've seen in awhile. It was great to just spend some time with Allie tonight. We had fun. Ok good night!

Over the last few days a few things happend that are worth noting. I'll start with things at work. This week has been pretty hard on Andy. On Monday I put in my two weeks notice there as you already know. But yesterday our main fileserver crashed on us and we aren't sure yet if our data went with it. The last two days have been spent trying to recover from it. Then today at work our credit card machine quit on us. We weren't able to make credit card transactions other then by calling and verifying over the phone today. That was just one more thing to add to the stress there.

On another note yesterday after work Allie and I went out for dinner and ice cream. It was really nice to spend some time with her doing that. We went out to eat at a restaruant that we hadn't been to before. It was really good and I think we'll have to go back again sometime. After dinner we talked for awhile and went over a book we've been reading together. After that we stopped by her house and spent some time with her parents as they just returned from vacation yesterday. It was good to see them again and disuss some of thier trip. Its good to have them back. Brittay also came back late last night and I had a chance to see her toinght at church. It was nice to see her too. Anyway that was a quick sum up of the last few days. I should probalby head to bed now. I have class in the morning. Night!

Today was a pretty tough day. This whole weekend has been pretty crazy and I never mentioned some stuff because I wasn't ready for it to get out just yet. But now everything is for sure so I can talk about it now. Over the weekend I was offered a job at Genworth Financial to work in thier IT Department. Everything happend pretty suddenly and they needed an answer as soon as possible so I spend most of the weekend considering and praying about it, and talking to friends and family about it. On Sunday I pretty much decided I was going to do it. Oddly enough I think what really helped me decide was a random conversation with a guy I met at Barnes and Noble Sunday afternoon. I was already leaning in that direction because of some other events that took place in my thinking process. But It is funny sometimes how God can speak in odd ways. By Sunday evening I decided all I needed to do was call Genworth this morning and ask a few last minute questions I had. I called and asked and the answers were what I wanted to hear, so I told him it was a go and he said my first day will be on the 25th. That is exactly two weeks from today. So most of my thoughts this morning were trying to figure out the best way I could inform the guys at work. It was a sad desision in a way because I enjoyed the personalities and the friendships with the guys at my work, but I couldn't stay forever and I needed to go out and strech my wings a little bit. I am truly greatful for the privledge I had of working there over the past four years and it will still be hard to let go of it somewhat. I am excited for the new adventrue I have ahead of me though. I think after telling the guys of my plans it went the best it could have. It was still a pretty unexpected hit to them I think. They knew it was coming eventually, but perhaps not this soon. I know God will provide another employee for them, that will have a lot to offer them. I pray that God continues to Grow and bless Computer Exchange long after I am gone. One other thing I am regetful of is that I won't be able to watch Evan grow up each week. I will probalby still see him here and there but it just won't be as often. I'll sure miss that kid. So today was a day of mixed emotions trying to deal with these desions of life. But I feel that God is leading me in a new direction and I'm ready for what he has to offer. Thanks everyone for all your prayers.

Today was an awesome day! I went to Washington D.C. with Allie and we had a great time! I had to wake up at 5:30 this morning though so I am really really tired now. I'm not even sure how coherent this blog will end up being. We went all over the place as much as we could today though. We arrived at around 12:00 and we had until 8pm to do whatever we wanted when the bus would be coming back to get us again. The first thing we went though was the holocaust museum. It was pretty sad to see all that went on during that time. We had to rush though the latter end of the museum though because we had so much we wanted to do today. After leaving that museum we headed over the the air and space museum. I really enjoyed that museum and Allie let me go around all over the place and look at a bunch of stuff. But even then we still had to rush at the end so we could get everythign else done. After that we headed over to see the Capitol. On the way over we stopped for lunch at one of the little hotdog stands. They were pretty decent hotdogs too. They do a good just. So we headed to the capitol and when we got there we saw a cop with a machine gun. That was pretty weird. You don't normally see that every day. There was also a group of people that was from a wedding and they were hanging out on the capitol lawn taking pictures and things. After leaving that site we went around to the Library of Congress. I was excited to see it as it has a copy of every book ever published.. unfortunatly it was closed by the time we got there. That was really sad. So we then had to hurry across to the complete other side of the Mall area so we had a good sized walk ahead of us from that. On During the trip across we stopped and Allie fed some birds that we eating out of her hand. She loved that part and she was cute doing it too. The next thing on the list was to see the white house so we made the long walk over to that. I thought it was cool to see it in real life. It is so much different that way. It was cool, we also saw the national christmas tree there also. By this time we only had an hour left before our busses were going to pick us up so we had one more thing we could do. I wanted to go see the Lincoln memorial so we started heading in that direction. We stopped for some dinner on the way over. We didn't have time for a sit down restaruant the whole day. I know Allie wanted to do that, but it just didn't work out. We can do sit down restaraunts anytime, anywhere. SO we just grabbed some eggrolls and a large pretzel for dinner and made the journey to the memorial. We made good time but it was a lot longer walk then I expected distance wise. We had to speed walk most of the time, and by this time both of our legs were killing us. But we made it and I think it was worth it. It was pretty cool to see that statue up close. We had to hurry back to the meeting point by this time though becuase time was running short. We made it back with about 8 minutes to spare. So we ended up having fairly good timing. It felt really good to just sit down and relax finally after getting on the bus. Both Allie and I tried sleeping on the way back but it was really cold and Allie fidgets a lot so it made it hard for both of us. But I think I got a little decent sleep in. I was extremely tired when I got back home, but I needed to return a call to someone when I got here and that ended up taking an hour and a half. I was really looking forward to going to bed too. But now that I'm two hours later I can finally head to bed. I won't want to wake up tomorrow for practice at church. *whaaah* I am going to need a nap tomorrow. Ok that it for now.. I need to sleep. Night!

Today was a really nice break from work. Allie and I were going to go hiking today but it ended up raining so we couldn't do that. It was kind of sad. After she got out of class I picked her up and we watched a movie at my house together. Allie met my roomate for the first time today too. We were then going to go to the theater and watch another movie but I think that was everybody else's idea as well. I have never seen the theater so packed like that before. We ended up not being able to see what we wanted, so instead we got some coffee and then sat down and talked together. Later this evening we went to the Vines center to find a seat for the service they were having there tonight. It is spiritual emphasis week here at LU and Clayton King is here to speak. He has been great the past two nights so far. After the service was over Allie and I went together to get a few things from her house and then dropped me off at my apartment and she headed back to campus. Over all it has been a good day and I was glad for the day off. It was still kind of sad that it had to rain though. Oh well! Night!

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I had to wake up early for an 8:00 appointment at the school. I think the appointment went pretty well too, I just have to think about some stuff now. After that I had to work the rest of the day and there wasn't too much exciting about that. After work though I ended up picking up some dinner for Allie and taking it to her at work because she had to work until 10:00 last night. It was fun to just sit and chill with my girl at the airport. After leaving there I headed back home and talked to my roomate and his girlfriend for awhile who were there watching Robin Hood the cartoon version. He had made some mexican chicken that night and it smelled pretty good. Anyway after about an hour or so I took care of a few things I needed to do and headed to bed.

Today I had to work again until 3:00. But tonight Allie and I are going to be heading to a missions conference thing that Liberty is putting on. I think that will be fun. Anyway.. thats all for now. I'll write more later!

I thought I would go ahead and write a quick entry before bed. I don't have much this time though. I had my aviation class this morning and it was pretty decent. So far everything has mostly been review though, but its been fun anyway. After class I headed over to work a little early to catch up on a job we needed to get done today in a hurry. I was able to get that back on track and ready to go on time. I did have a service call today too, but it was a really quick one. Other then that the rest of the day was pretty straight forward. After work I headed over to the Donnebergs to hang out for evening and we had dinner together then Allie did some homework while I read an aviation magazine. Overall we had a good time tonight. I need to get to bed though. I have an 8:00 appointment thing tomorrow. Night!
