On April, 12 2010 I attended Lakewood United Methodist Church. There was a cool spring breeze in the air, and the flowers in front of the church were just starting to bloom. Spring is a time for rebirth and that was exactly what was planned that day in my church. This was the day of my baptism a day of rebirth, fitting that it was spring and the flowers were just blooming. Inside the church the pastor opened by saying good morning, Then laying out the plan for that service. I was then called up and the appropriate passages were read after blessing a bowl of water and reciting lines of text in a Q&A format the holy water was dropped on my head and I was symbolically reborn.

While I never shared interest in tai chi I took to chess as a very relaxing hobby, but to this day have only beaten my father once in a chess game.
