A Step Back

I had a big, long post. HAD a big long post. Spare me the lecture Tom, but I lost it when the tenuous internet connection broke. Let’s see if I can summarize.

I’m Byran Smucker, 22, Senior in Industrial Engineering at Oregon State University. I’ll graduate in March. I like Math.

I’m working 3 jobs right now. One for my dad, two at the University. Dad pays better, OSU is more intellectually stimulating.

School is exciting, but graduation will birth more exciting things.

Will I win a Marshall Scholarship? Will I go to grad school in Massachusetts? Can I spell Massachussetts correctly?

Or how about this: I applied for Rescue’s vacant tenor vocalist position. Rescue is a full-time contemporary Christian a cappella group from Portland. It’s not a no-brainer, that I’d take the job if offered, but it’s an intriguing possibility. You just don’t get the opportunity to sing full-time for Jesus very often. I mean, you gotta be kidding me. But I haven’t been offered the job. They need someone very soon. I couldn’t go until March, even if they wanted me.

If I don’t become a singer, I have five months to fill before next fall. I’m kicking around several ideas: SMBI 5th term, mission/vs (can anybody say Waynesboro, VA?), travelling.

That’s it, my life.

  9. What would happen is that you would come visit By, and then y’all would come visit us in SoBo. And Merry would come too. Sweet fellowship.

  11. Don’t get hasty, it’s not much more than an idea at this point. Who knows if it’ll happen, but really it seems a decent possibility at this point.
