  • 10/2/11: faithway or west coast? (answered sometime in late november or early december. west coast it'll be)

  • individual soul liberty - not having the same convictions as others in certain aspects of life - and being O.K. with that
  • my dad - sure he goes clubbing every weekend and only sees me once or twice a month, and doesn't even tell me once he gets a new girlfriend or breaks up with the latest one, but he always makes sure i'm not wanting for anything (food, clothing). always helps out financially when i'm in a crunch even though he works as a lowly janitor, consistently sends money back to his mom in the philippines as well as paying for all the expensive costs that comes with sponsoring her to come to canada, and sacrifices $175 a month for my educational fund, etc. and i can talk freely with him about things that i can't with anybody else, really. even on listography. i used to envy others - especially at church - who were close with their dads, but the more i think about it, i'd have no other dad than the one God's given to me.
