As I write this, I have 8 days left of freedom, which at that time, my activity on here and on any other sites will drop greatly, possibly more than it has in the past.
“But why, le? Why will your activity drop like so? And what do you mean by ‘8 days left of freedom’?”
Well, in 8 days, school starts back. And once school starts back, I won’t be on as much. This is why my activity has skyrocketed the past few days. When the 8 days are up, I’ll be going away, and my appearances won’t be as often.
“You’re not making any sense. Many times on here you’ve talked about school, and yes, your activity did drop, you never really talked about it like this. Why should this be any different? And what do you mean by ‘going away'”?
We’ll, I’m not going to jail on 3 counts of theft, 4 counts of hit-and-run, 1 count of evading an officer, and 5 counts of illegal gambling, and under-age drinking, that’s for sure. 😛
There comes a time in a person’s life where they have to be open with their friends, and the people they associate with. That time is different for everybody. Some may feel it should happen early on, some way later, and still others when they think the time is right.
“LE717! You’re not making any sense! What are you rambling about?! How does this relate to school starting back and you going away?”
Please, let me finish.
As I said, that time is different for everybody, myself included. But when it should happen, it needs to be done.
In 8 days, I will be starting school, school like I’ve never had to experience before. A school known as technical college. And for me to start that, I have to be a certain age:
Many times I’ve been asked by age, and I always said “Not telling”, because, as you know, I am a very private guy. The only time I tell someone my age is because I really, really trust them, and know they trust me as well. But now, my age is hidden no more. Because now, I have revealed my age to everyone in this post. I, le717, am 18 years old, have been so since March 13, 2013 (some of you may have known I had a birthday, but of course didn’t know how old I was), and will be entering technical college on August 19, 2013, beginning my two year enrollment to during which I will get my Degree in Web Site Design/Internet Specialist.
There you have it. What used to be secret is secret no more.
Now you may be thinking “College, what’s the big deal with that? It’s only two years after all.” Well, that is true, but college big deal for me. Coming from a background of home school, with Mom as my teacher, sitting in my room or at the kitchen table or in the car doing my school, it makes a public school much harder for me. Only once in my school have I set foot in a class room with other people and do the work assigned. The class was 3 months, and I was the youngest one there (17). I handled it pretty well, but that was a small class, only about 15 people. This is larger, and much different then that. There is also another factor that makes college a bigger deal for me, one I haven’t told anybody, not even those who I told my age.
I don’t keep it a secret I am a Christian. I am proud and not ashamed to proclaim I am one. The verse on the site index, and my about page makes that clear.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. – Romans 1:16 (NKJV)
The Bible even says in Luke 9:26 (NKJV):
For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels.
I know many of my readers are Christian too. And to you, I ask if you will take but a few seconds in your prays to pray for me, pray that God’s peace be upon me as I embark on this journey, this new stage of life, and that His hand of protection would be around me in this endeavor, and that as I obey His commands and live my life in a pleasing manner to Him, that others would see this in my life, and would come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know me in real life; God is everywhere, and we are all brothers and sisters in Christ. 🙂
So there you have it. What was secret, is secret no longer.
