Gay Guy in Seminary: Day 7 (Luke Winchester)

My parents and I went to Winchester Mansion today. That place is as crazy as the lady who built it. Please see the "door to nowhere" in the above picture. All the posts in the house are installed upside down, there is a staircase that leads to the ceiling and a chimney that stops 4 inches short. One room has a window in the floor. The lady thought she had to keep building lest she be haunted by all of the people killed by Winchester firearms. I know for sure that one couple I saw was gay, my gaydar totally pinged when I heard one of them talk, and there were to other pairs of men that could have been.

We went for Korean food after, which was actually really disappointing considering we were in the Bay Area.

I already have an assignment for school, even though classes don't start until September 8. I have to read the Book of Luke twice. We were waiting at my aunt's house for her to get back from shopping, so I was able to get one read through done in "The Message" version. I plan to do the second reading in the "Good News" version. I know, I know, I need to get a "grown-up" version of the Bible, but I really don't understand what the big deal is. One of my professors for the Lay Leader Training Program even said the "Good News" version is a very good translation. Oh well, I plan on getting a "New International Version" in the very near future.

I was surprised at how emotional I got reading certain parts, especially the part where Peter denies that he knows Jesus three times. I just felt so bad for him!

I move in tomorrow! Woo hooooooo!!!!!! My friend Amber just texted me and said she wasn't coming to help. BOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Now: Eating Chinese food and watching my dad and my aunt watch Chinese TV
