The boys of 309--308--210.

An anonymous author once said, "Friends are those who laugh with you, cry with you, but mostly just laugh at you."

Who have you laughed at today?

The boys of 309. I learned a lot from those guys for the almost 2 years we lived together. It's interesting how much you can learn from people when you look for something to learn from them.

TJ: From him I learned how to take time for the one. He always thought about someone else (which was usually a girl--name withheld), and I knew I could trust him to bring me up when I was down.

Dustin: He taught me how to genuinely care about people. He was one of the most stressed out people when it came to school but when the time presented itself to help someone feel uplifted, he did it. He showed you he loved you and didn't just say it.

Nate-dawg: One of the first things he taught me when I first met him was "not to take life so seriously." If anyone ever watches Nate cross the street you'll know what I'm talking about. He understands he is not perfect but he knows that through service he can get a little closer to achieving that. He taught me the importance of doing your duty, and always striving to do that with an attitude of Christ.

Watch the people around you with an attitude of learning.

You'll be amazed what you can learn.


  1. Yep, you 4 guys ARE amazing. I've learned so much from you all as well! Thanks for being so awesome :]

  2. Oh...I miss you all so much! Tender!

  3. What I learned from Ryan: work hard, try to bring a smile to each face you see, learn from everything in life whether it's easy or hard, take time to laugh with a great friend, and serve the Lord with everything you have.
