the future

I've thought about going to Bible college, but most of them are so straight laced where they'd make me cut my hair and take out my earrings and all that. And that's really not an important thing. I want to teach that open-mindedness is a good thing. And it would be kind of hypocritical for me to go to a place that made me go cut my hair off and change everything and be judgmental like that towards me and then come preach about open-mindedness, so I don't want to do that.

I may go for broadcasting because I really like radio, but I'm still not gonna give up on preaching. I've thought about studying on my own -- maybe even taking a few Internet courses for it -- and starting my own church up in about 3, 4 or 5 years. No more than that. I don't wanna wait 'til I'm in my 30s or 40s. If I start my own church, who's gonna tell me I need a degree? But I basically go about it same way I'm goin' about my music. Just kinda keep goin' at it until I do something.

Cody and Pastor Bill Stukenburg discuss preparing a sermon

Now that I'm graduating, I guess I got a few ideas what I wanna do ... I mean, I'm going to Mayo [Technical College] next fall semester for graphic arts, but I guess I'll have a little more time on my hands than I used to. I'll probably use that with my music, try to take my music to the next level, whatever that may be. All I really have is music, so I'll just try to accomplish that a little bit more, and that's really all I got planned between that and going to college. I might work.

I was gonna move out this summer, but as of right now I'm not going to. I'm not saying I won't later. Most of my money's gonna get ate up by car insurance. You can't make enough money to really buy your own car insurance when you're 18 and still live on your own when all you can get is minimum wage jobs. I'm worried about payin' my car insurance more than anything else right now.

I don't know, I'm just kinda takin' everything one day at a time right now, not really worryin' about what's happening in the future.
