Be Good Not Bad by Brian Warren

Sickness vanquished

I was sick earlier this week, which makes twice in the past month. I always expect to get reading done when I’m sick, laid up in bed, but it never seems to happen. I find it hard to concentrate on the written word when I’m trying not to throw up, trying to sleep, and drink fluids. It’s a complex and distracting thing.

We’ve been going to a class that’s all about the Greek Orthodox Church. What I’ve been learning has been blowing my mind. It’s really challenging to me. I’m not sure what all to believe anymore from what I grew up with and what I’ve been taught. I’m really having to think and study about my faith, what I believe about God, and what it means to be “saved”. Maybe more about that in the future.

I got shot down from Apple on being an iTunes Affiliate – presumably because the content of my website:

  • The content is unrelated to iTunes
  • Your site promotes tobacco, alcoholic beverages or excessive drinking/drug use
  • Your site contains extreme religious content

There were other possibilities it mentioned, but those are my top guesses. Oh well, too bad. So much for that secondary income.
