I took my tax stuff to my aunt to get done. She knows how to do all of that. I am pretty sure I will get a refund. I haven't worked enough or made enough money to warrant paying. I am sure hoping that I don't have to pay anyways.
Next year I will definently be less on my taxes due to the fact that I will in school. So I am will only have May, June, July, and possibly August to account for on my taxes.
But this year taxes are due on May 1st at midnight due to April 30th falling on a Sunday. So don't be like me and wait till the middle of the last week to get them done. Get them done sooner so you don't have to worry about it.

I believe that Covenant Bible College (CBC) will be a good change for me. My dad, two sisters, my two grandmas and my grandpa support me. My grandma on my dad's side of the family has been telling everybody that I got accepted. She is so happy for me. It makes me want to do this even more. But there is one dark cloud trying to stop me from going. My mother doesn't want me to go. She thinks I am only going there for the social aspect of it. But that is so not true.
Okay I know that meeting new people will be apart of the experience. But going to CBC will be a growth experience for me. I hope that I will get to know God in away I never have before. I will prove to my mother that I am not going just for the fun stuff. I will prove that CBC is a growth experience in away that I have never known. I have been wanting to go to CBC for many years and I am finally doing it.
At least I am not going to be totally by myself. My friend Mark Jensen is going. He is the third Jensen that is going. At least in that respect I will have someone to study with and whatnot. It's probably most likely that I will not end up with him as a roommate. If nothing else, I hope that we are on the same side of the dorm.
Before I go for this blog post think about this:
If people tell you to be positive then are negative against something you want to do then that will undo all the preaching of being they have done.
Just a reminder that the Gateway Covenant Youth Group's Rock 'N Drop In is on today at the church. So be there and bring your instruments because we are going to rock out.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two men suspected of helping smuggle cocaine to New York from Mexico inside statues of the Virgin Mary were arrested Thursday, U.S. authorities said.

Five 3-foot-tall statues of the Virgin Mary, filled with 242 pounds of cocaine, were seized in a Brooklyn warehouse as part of the police operation.The drug ring used the statues to smuggle cocaine worth millions of dollars, FBI agent John Gilbride said in a statement.
The DEA said the investigation was continuing in Mexico.
Lawyers for the defendants could not be immediately reached for comment.
