More about My Graduation

May 15, 2006

My little brother commented that I should post more about my college graduation, so here we go.

I guess I should begin by clarifying (just in case you haven’t read my Parents posting) that the degree I received was Bachelor of Science of Civil Engineering from Washington State University. Oh, and the job that I have is a civil engineering job and the task at hand in my place of employment is the preparation of drainage reports for approval by Kitsap County.

People came to visit me on my graduation day. Pictured here with me are my good friend Brandon and his good friend Virgiliana who has agreed to marry him. Both of my parents and both of my brothers and both of my sisters also came along with my great grandmother and my great uncle Kerby who is a Civil Engineer in Lewiston Idaho.

My parents and my brothers and Brandon and Virgie and myself ate at Taco del Mar and Brandon and Vergie put up with my family and all of the moving and such that I had to do to move out of the Embassy where I lived for two years in Pullman. That was all quite gracious of them. My parents drove a great big van over to put my stuff in. My mother and my brothers and I left for Monroe on the day after graduation, but everyone else left on the day of graduation because of things that they needed to get done. Brandon and Virgie decided to stay with me until about nine that evening talking and listening to music and watching a TV show from the third season of Hogan’s Heroes. Posted by Picasa


My First Week of Work

May 13, 2006

I made it through working on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. I have been staying with my grandparents twenty-six or so miles away from Poulsbo because it seems that there is no housing in Poulsbo. If anyone knows of any cheap housing in Poulsbo, please let me know.

Work on Wednesday morning was quite rough because of me not knowing what was going on because of my supervisors being absent and the disorganization of the computers. The computers seemed to be disorganized because of the incompetence of the engineer before me. Everyone seems to be pleased that he is gone. I have been doing some praying that I will not turn out like him.

My last night

May 9, 2006

This may very well be my last night at home. I am supposed to show up at work in Poulsbo on Wednesday which is the day after tomorrow. I don’t have my own place to live yet. I called four apartment places today and have been unable to talk to anyone connected with them. I am allowed to sleep at my mother’s parent’s house. My mother’s parents live only 26 miles away from the location of my work. I guess that I will type about how all of this goes after some of it has already happened.

I had to take my computer apart and resoldier the power jack because I busted it in my car on the ferry boat last Tuesday. I remembered to connect my on board mouse this time, so the computer is easier to use in unconventional locations.

I graduated today

My little brother took this picture for me. It is an image of me as well as an image of an image of me.

I should also mention that I got a job in Poulsbo Washington which I accepted on Friday after visiting the company on Monday.

I had only applied for the job a week before Monday through a portable document file in an electronic message. I received a call before 8 am on the following day. I was asked some questions and all but offered the job. I received a written job offer on the following friday.

This is unusual because I seem to have spent about the first month of each of the last two summers trying to find a summer job. This time I was all but handed a job. I remember that last summer I noted that I had given God every opportunity to give me an engineering job, but he had not. There were a number of jobs that I should have had, but I just didn’t get them. Jesus must have given me this job just so that I will know that He can give me whatever He wants to whenever He wants to do so. We should all take note that God can do whatever He wants to do because He is the King! Posted by Picasa
