This is my 1,000th post to this blog.

1,000 posts ago, it was May of 2002 and I was intrigued by this blogging thing, and was finishing up my college and Chicago experience, getting ready to graduate from DePaul and go off to seminary.

900 posts ago I was writing about words I overuse, including "hilarious." (all of the words listed I still overuse.)

800 posts ago, I was sick and couldn't go dancing. It was apparently awful, for many reasons. I, of course, don't remember this at all.

700 posts ago, it was only the end of my first semester at Columbia and I was stressing about finals. I apparently wrote a lot those first six months.

600 posts ago I was happy about the end of the school year and planning to read a not-for-school book. (I'm seeing a theme...)

500 posts ago I was not blogging very much and was apologetic about it and made a resolution I didn't keep. then, for my next post, I posted my post-alternative-context-in-Jamaica sermon.

400 posts ago I was lamenting the fact that I had to figure out, in a mere six months, what on earth I wanted to do with my life, get a job, and move. Who did God think he/she was, calling me to ministry without a clear sense of what kind of ministry? silly God.

300 posts ago I had just returned to Egypt from being home for mom stuff, and was getting ready for Thanksgiving with the other american and canadian missionaries in Egypt. As you can see from 298 posts ago, it was awesome.

200 posts ago, I was writing to my mom on the first mother's day without her.

100 posts ago, I discuss whether or not I am postmodern.

It's been a busy 5 years, 1 month, and 7 days. well, busier sometimes than others, but a pretty busy 1,000 posts nonetheless.

here's to 1,000 more....
