Life after exams…

Right now I am sitting in the lounge room of my folks house, with my 2 nephews (10 & 6) watching Sponge-Bob Square Pants. Well really they are watching and I am typing this.

After being locked up in a room for 3 weeks studying up to 11 hours a day, I am starting to feel like a normal person again. I have nothing much planned for the next few weeks other than a bunch of socialising.

Something I do like to do in my holidays is to read. Of course I have a couple of hundred pages of Calvin to read before college goes back next year, plus some summer Greek translation. But it is nice to have time to read something just because I want to. Here is a pile of books I’m hoping to get through before Christmas.

I have also added When I don’t desire God: How to fight for Joy by John Piper to the pile. I’m also looking for a cheap copy of Did I kiss marriage Goodbye? by Carolyn McCulley, but they may have to wait until after Christmas.

I’m trying to decide which book to start with. I have read half of Death by Love, which is good but not great so I think it can wait until the end (sorry Pastor Mark!). I’ve also started Shades of Sheol, which I am really enjoying even though I’m only in chapter 2. Having said that I promised someone I would read The Blue Parakeet so I will probably try an knock that over before reading any more of the others.

In fact I may go and start that now.

I heart holidays *big smiley face*

 

A good day

Well I’ve had a short hiatus from blogging over the last few weeks.

I have been sick for a few weeks over the holidays which means that I have returned to college feeling like I didn’t get much of a break. So I’m still feeling very tired and not quite 100 percent but hopefully that will improve over the next few weeks.

Some exciting stuff has also been happening. Yesterday was a particularly good day.

It started off with an email with mid-year transcripts informing me I passed all my exams… woot!

After class yesterday I went with some good friends to an amazing Japanese Spa in the mountains. We spent 3 hours relaxing in the hot baths, steam room and tea room. One word. AMAZING!

And then my friend asked if I would be her bridesmaid! One word. EXCITEMENT!

Holidays on the South Coast

101_1989Last week I went to the south coast for 5 days with som friends from college.

It was kind if a random holiday since I went with 5 people who I didn’t know very well. I was worried it would be quite awkward but it turned out to be a lot of fun.

Praise God for new friendships, the beautiful south coast and holidays!

Here are a few pics from Mollymook.

Lecture free weeks….. and family

I’m 3 days in ‘lecture free weeks’. I’m recovering well from mission (kinda wishing I was still there) and have spent the last 3 days relaxing and catching up with people I haven’t seen in a while.

Some of these people are my family. It feels like forever since I have spent any quality time with them, especially my nephews. Its always when I’m on holidays from college and back at home that I realise how much I miss them when I am at college.

They are a lot of fun! Mathew told me yesterday I’m his best mate – how adorable is that!!!

I’m going to continue to spend a lot of time with them over the next few weeks which will be awesome – but it does make it hard to want to go back to college.
