What have I been doing?
x. Finishing year two of uni!
x. Comedy Crew stuff, so fun!
x. Working, and actually having money. Weird!
x. Buying my HAPPY CAMPER southbound ticket. Yes!
x. Planning for Thailand, I'm afraid.
x. Seeing MUSE and almost dying from the happies.
x. Having my interview for Amnesty, and realising I'm going to be overloaded.
x. Planning my future, that's cool... I guess.
x. Missing Siana and Keah. They arrive the afternoon we fly out! :((((((
x. Designing my next tattoo... yeah!

So that's all really, I'm glad to be on holidays. But I'm still busy. Which is always the way with me. I'm going to have a cool next year. I've decided. Currently I have no nights to myself, which is lame, cos it means I have no nights to hang out with people and just do whatever. But I enjoy the things I do, so it's okay.

Um, yeah. :)

two of a kind

Hey kids! I don't know if anyone's interested but next friday (October 12) we have John and Helen Burns, never heard of em either, coming to Riverview to speak to the youth and young adults about singledom, dating, marriage and sex! It starts at 7 and it'll be run like our hot potato nights I think, where you can SMS questions and stuff. It's being way hyped, so I reckon it'll be good. Plus they have their own show, so they must be good right? Um, no. But Riverview doesn't get duds over to speak and people have been complaining about the gap in relationship teaching at church for young people so I reckon they would've got some winners! So all, please come! It sounds like it's gonna be super!

I've wanted to study in the US ever since I was in primary school. It's really lame, but it's something I've always wanted to do. The other day, when the sun was shining and I felt like I had the world at my fingertips, I began thinking about what it would be like. I thought, if it's offered, I could do my dip ed. or equivalent in the US. Well today I took the plunge and began to search. Curtin offers courses overseas for partnership Unis so you're still enrolled at Curtin but you're studying somewhere else. The University of South Illinois offers exactly what I was looking for. A 15 month course for post grads, prac included. The campus is stunning, it's surrounded by a lake and it was founded last century! It's right near all the states I've always wanted to visit; Michigan, Chicago and New York isn't far either. So here's the thing, in 2009 do I enrol?

Thoughts?

just realised i have a deep seeded fear of being forgotten. i used to have nightmares as a child that mum and dad would leave me in a foreign country and just forget me. having realised this, thanks to a certain lecturer aka dean "shit head" durber, i have had many things revealed to me. things such as why i relate to owen, God and friends the way i do. having this enlightened to me is AWESOME! and i can't wait to think and pray this all out.

man i hate theatre kids. go get a life!

GetUp! winner

Incase you hadn't seen/heard about the competition that GetUp! was running, the winner was just announced. It was a competition to get an ad on TV that represented what the Australian people wanted to get out of this year's election campaign. The winner is really good and so you should all go see it at:

and if you've got some spare cash, donate to getting it on air, cos it's a really great cause. imagine if we actually lived in a democracy! wouldn't that be novel? a place where public opinion was valued and heard. one day maybe.

"We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed." 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Jesus doesn't promise an easy passage, but He does guarantee a safe landing. BE ENCOURAGED and remember God doesn't just comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. So encourage and comfort someone else this week.

J. John

Brilliant! I realised, as I read that verse, that things are only overwhelming if I let them be. I have a brilliant life, what is there to complain about? More importantly, what's the use in complaining? It doesn't make me feel better, I mean in the long run. It doesn't change what's happened or happening. And it doesn't do anything to fix the problem. Complaining just says: this problem is someone elses fault and someone else needs to clean this up for me. Where the truth is we need to take responsibility for our own messes and then take them to God. He's the guy with the mop.

the hidden treasure

i love my church. this weekend with sy and the battle of the bands was cool. being mc was hard but fun. karlee STILL has an amazing voice. i don't think she'll ever stop amazing me. i love how she's passionate about women believing in themselves and in their special God-designed beauty. listening to her talk about that confirmed this theory i've been working on in my head. i believe that God gives every person a special responsibility, if you will, like something that presses on their heart, a spiritual discontent. and everyone has it, whether they believe in God or not, it's like a hidden treasure. and i think that if you get God on your side, He makes it easier to bring it out. it could still happen anyway, but He acts as a big source of strength and guidance. and i think it's really cool that everyone's is completely unique and different. and if we give our lives to it, we can truly see miracles. the only difference between a christian in the scheme of things is that we have an advantage in life, that we've got someone on the outside who sees the future. He also ordained the future, and i think we have a better chance of reaching our full potential if we put our life in His hands as opposed to our own. but that's up to each of us. it's a big cyclical, like God put this treasure in us from birth, we live out our lives and we choose God, and then He goes about to buff us up so the treasure can shine brightest. it's cool i reckon. and what's most cool is that we did nothing to earn it or deserve it, it was all there before we were born. hm, cool thought huh?
