Happy Birthday, Sister!

May 13, 2010

Well, since all of my siblings have birthdays in this week, I’ve decided to be lazy and just post for Katie’s. But happy birthday to the rest of y’all, too!

Katie, here’s a video of the card I bought you and what life has been like at the farm for the past several weeks!

Happy Birthday!!!

The Great Anthony Ingram

For my theater lecture class, our final was writing and producing a play. I was the playwright for my group and I video taped the final performance. Here it is, I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Mother’s Day

May 9, 2010

Just yesterday my mom posted on her blog that it was my birthday.  Now it’s my turn, since my birthday doesn’t fall on Sunday (i.e. Mother’s Day) this year.  I’ve been reading a book of Bulgarian fairy-tales over the last two months, and I ran across one that reminded me of my mother, since it talks about what it’s like for a mom and a son to be far away from each.  So I decided to translate this fairytale for you as a Mother’s Day present.  It probably takes 20-30 minutes to read, since it’s 16 pages, but it’s a fun story.  I have to add a disclaimer, though, for anyone who reads this translation: I don’t intend for the mother and son to be exact representations of my mother and me, so don’t get offended if something seems a little off.  I’ve really enjoyed reading these fairy-tales, and I hope that you can enjoy this one in translation.

The Kingdom of the Nymphs

P. S. For anyone who reads this text, if you find typos or wording issues, feel free to comment and let me know.  Since I put in the time to translate this story, I want it to be good quality, and I’m always open to comments and critiques.

Wait…Stop…is that not a UFO?

May 5, 2010

Did you see it? I didn’t until viewing my poorly-shot video. Really, I must have swam right past whatever that thing was without noticing. This last weekend Elizabeth and I drove down to Missouri for a large caver gathering. I took the opportunity to do some diving with another caver friend of mine.

I see that consanguineous chaos has certainly broken out while the elder brother was away. It took more than 2 weeks to even catch up on reading the old posts, much less actually post something. Now that the eldest brother is back, you can expect James and I to pick back up on our discussion of evolution and Christianity. Hopefully this will provide a little more brotherly balance for those of you who prefer the heavier reading…if you’re still out there and have survived all of the cute animal videos and girly books.

Moving Out

May 4, 2010

Ok, so I know that my last post was about the end of the year, but it’s pretty much all I think about these days, so here goes:

My bed after I'd taken the bedding off.

Creative packing!

I’ve been taking my stuff out of the dorm in stages, and this was the result of one trip of stuff I took to my car. By Thursday, everything has to be out of my room, and I’m moving straight from the dorm into Lightbearer’s apartments for the internship this summer. Also, I’ve been spending most of my time studying, since I have two tests on Wednesday.
