Bjørn's Graduation

On Friday, I finished classes and drove on up to Lynden. This weekend my brother, Bjørn, graduated from Trinity Western University. After the ceremony on saturday we had dinner at Homestead in Lynden and then went back to the Eide's where I hung out with Zac. Sunday was a nice relaxing weekend seeing the entire family and hanging out with Zac and Mikal. All three of us are getting pretty excited for our upcoming trip to Norway. However, Mikal's still got to make his final descision on his academic plans for next year.

The Rocky Votolato Show

After a long day with two midterms, I got to treat myself to an evening at a new concert venue called Neumo's on Capital Hill. I took the bus over there and met Missy, Micah, and Amanda. The venue was pretty nice, but the 21 and over section was really weird because it was on a balcony above the rest of the people overlooking the stage. The opening bands were some no names that weren't all that spectacular. However, everyone came for Rocky. His show was great but his long tour gave him a raspy voice that came out on a few songs.

Reservations on a Blog

People who know me are well aquainted with my quality of reservation. I don't like to rush into engagements or commitments until I am fully sure that I am not just racing after some impulsive whim. It is for this reason that I have not created a blog. I have been fascinated with the blog for a couple of years now, and have enjoyed casually veiwing the lives of my older brother and more recently my family through their respective weblogs. However, as much as I wanted to jump on the bandwagon as soon as I moved away from home, I felt that a blog was some sort of commitment that would require time and effort. I felt I might not have these commodities. Lately, I have realized that my blog can be whatever I want it to be, and it does not have to live up to the day by day chronicles of the Bjorn Identity in its former glory. So I send this out as the introduction to the Life of Markus (a reference to Orson Scott Card's Ender series that I'm afraid will be missed by all who read this). Naturally, I won't even be informing my friends or family about this blog until there is sufficient content, so I present this, for now, to the colossal Jane, known by most as the internet.
