My random ramblings...
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37v4.

I'm now back having been for my walk down to the centre... and not only did i pick up a postcard as requested (i must remember and send it - doh!), but I also picked up a copy of hp 5 - *YAY*... having said that thought i'm only about a quarter the way through number 4. It's good so far though. :-)
I'm off for a relaxing day... Although I have my exegesis due, we're encouraged to spend a lot of time just reading different versions of the bible and praying over the passage in question. So hopefully God will give me sufficient inspiration on this...

Well i'm up 'early' for a Saturday, and have plenty to do today again as usual. I've got an exegesis due a week tuesday so I have to try and get a handle on that this weekend, as well as doing my reading for next weeks class. Might go a strole down to the city centre to see if I can find a postcard for a friend. SHe asked me to do that AGES ago (woops) and i've just not had time - doh!
A friend of mine bought Finding Nemo yesterday on DVD *YAY*... so we watched that last night! I looooooooooooooove that movie! mine mine mine mine... ;-)

BUt today as every other, i have 101 things to do... including going out to Bishopbriggs JUST to pick up my questionnaires... oh well. I've been sitting doing paperwork and forms for my course since I got up - what fun... at least it's done now though!

Today hasn't been so good. Worked really hard on an essay only to get back today and scrape a pass. Soooooooooooooo annoying when that happens. BUt the kids really came through again for me tonight and sorta cheered me up again without even realising it which was good.
plus I just got a random email from my sister who is havin sledgin cravings... hehehehe... sorry Fi, but your secret is out! ;-)
also had random thoughts today wondering if my cousin Paula has had her baby yet - i'm assuming not since i haven't heard anything... dum de dum...

back from Castlemilk... was a good visit, and it looks as though my time at Castlemilk is going to be very exciting and challenging - *YAY*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
Thankfully also managed to complete my essay, so it's now printed off and ready to be handed in, and i've finished my reading for class tomorrow too - YES! So as a treat, i'm about to head off to bed early and read the end of HP... so very tired......................

Up early this morning... although was very successful in getting my essay looking a little bit better, although have to have another look at it today, and then I was doing my Grenz reading for tomorrow's class... so i'm getting there - slowly. But heading off to Castlemilk today to sort out my external placement for next term. *YAY*. Should be different, and a huge learning experience... i hope.
Was most annoyed this morning... when into the washing room to iron some trousars to find MY box of washing powder, and it was more-or-less EMPTY!!!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! A friend had borrowed it last week, and he obviously didn't give it back, and so have of the flat has probably been using it - GRRRRRRRRR. It wasn't full when i gave it to him but it CERTAINLY wasn't empty... it's soooooooooo annoying when stuff like that happens :-(

wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll - I managed to get the provisional essay done last night. But i've still got to get stuff off the net to add and some other bits and pieces, but at least the worst is over. Was working hard when I got back last night - so hopefully it makes sense.
Was reading HP again and it's getting very exciting - can hardly put it down!!!

Off to class....

thats me not long back from the music group at church. Had a pretty manic day as I expected. Think i'm just about to head upstairs to try and do some more of my essay.
Heard some sad news today though. A friend from my course had to go home to australia a few weeks ago coz her granda and step-dad were ill. Her grandad died a week or so ago, and we got news today that her step-dad died. All prayers going her way at the moment!

Well the first 400 words of the essay are done... i've sorted all my library books, and got a copy of Grenz out of the library (Christian Beliefs reading for thursday), and i've managed to finish my NT reading for tomorrow - *YAY* - but i still have a MOUNTAIN of work to do today - d'oh!

Suppose i'd better go and get on with it...

Well... i didn't really get anymore reading done, excpet to read the next 2 chapters of HP2.... Harry and Ron have just escaped the big spiders... talking of spiders, i'm really not liking them much these days!! Was hiding behind Em at the cinema last night at the sight of a sign which said 'Jumping spiders' yyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! Oh yes,... we went to see Big Fish, i wasn't kean to go and see it, but generally it was quite good - very weird though, so be warned!
After the water fights and rambles of the night before, i was convinced the same sort of carry on was going to happen last night, but everyone was quite chilled after we got back from the cinema... Gordon, as usual tried to persuade us all to play Monopoly (the lastest craze upstairs) but no one took him up on his offer!! ehhehehhe... SO the two of us sat and read instead...

As for today.... I HAD hoped to be up and awake by 10am so i could start my essay, but that didn't happen. I was too tired. BUt i'm up now :-) And i've got quite a few things to get done before I can head off to Catalyst Unplugged tonight. *YAY*

Having some of mum's home made lasange tonight - been in the freezer - heheheh... goooood fooood! Might be going to the cinema tonight, but it all depends on how much work i get done before that.
Went online to find that my 'Friends' series 6 box set is FINALLY being processed - YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANyway -more reading to do...

Was nice to be in bed relatively early last night... And here's me up relatively early again to see if I can get the majority of my work done today. Reading and starting another essay today, and i have to have a last minute read through my other one before I hand it in... so i guess it's all good.

Well i had another busy day yesterday, but thoroughly enjoyed meeting up with Nicola and spending sometime with her, and also the Crossover meeting at night was fabby. Especially getting to see other folk again *yay*. Was absolutely shattered by the time i got back to the flat though.

Well i dont' think today is going to be very interesting. Just study i think, and then MAYBE later on tonight i MIGHT go to the cinema. BUt not likely i don't think... too much to do.

Last night was 'interesting'.... I spent most of yesterday working on Essays and reading for classes, and i haven't even made an impression on the pile i have to do - d'oh! Get a little bit of time out today though. Meeting Nicola for lunch and then got a Crossover planning meeting tonight. Which means i get to see some old friends from mission again which will be nice.
isn't life fun.......

Well... tried to get online to post on Saturday, but surprise surprise the net was down - AGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAIN - doh! Never mind... anyway, i was up early on Saturday to go to the Heart&Soul 2004 launch - it was ok i guess... not hugely inspiring though - but i'm sure God will do wonderful things with it and through it. I then proceeded to spend the rest of the day until after 10pm doing my NT essay which is due this Friday... more or less done - i think. and of course yesterday I was at church... was quite amusing, the kids had to do a drama for the good samaritan, having hardly practiced it... (not my fault i must point out!) but it was a success *YAY*...

Anyway, as for today... it's gonna be another study day... i've got a fair amount of reading to do for Thursday's Christian Beliefs class, as well as getting that essay into it's 2nd draft. So *YAY* to me...

soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo tired.... but regardless... i've been shopping (for food) and i've been to the bank and i've posted all my letters and i've done a load of washing... so that's all the bits and pieces that i had to achieve today that aren't related to placement or college... that's for tonight though! Think i'm going to have to make a decent start on my NT essay which is due on Friday.
Long weekend this weekend though... no college on Monday Tuesday or wednesday... and i don't have placement either, except on Sunday of course...... But i have a Crossover meeting on Tuesday instead... cooooooooooooooooooooooooool... but lots of work to do over my time off... no rest for the wicked so they say!

Well that's me not long back from the drama group...
I met my temp tutor for the first time tonight... she's very nice it has to be said...
although there was potential for it all to go wrong when i realised that someone had removed the lead for the music... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek - so we had the group with no music... and you may ask why that is such a big deal... wellllllllllllll the majority of the stuff we do in the group had a soundtrack of some shape or description... but all was well... we danced and did drama regardless and the kids and I had a fabby time!
i'm now off to chillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll..............

out of class early today, coz this is a 'study week' so strictly speaking i should now be in the library studying... but i will... just not at the moment. tomorrow be my study day!!!!!!!!!!! This is just a welcome break before I head off to placement tonight... my tutor is coming to 'assess' me at the drama group... should be fun *cough*...

Had a meeting with my line manager, supervisor and pastoral carer last night, didn't get home till after 10:30pm.. was well shattered... and then cheered myself up with some ben & jerry's... was goooooooooooooooooooood... ended up collasping into bed though - very tired....

Sorry i didn't write anything last night... wasn't in the mood for computers yesterday. Took time out from placement, and my dad took me out for dinner and then came with me and a couple of friends to the cinema to see 'school of rock' which was quite good and a good relaxant...
but got looooooooooooooads to do today before i go for a meeting with my line manager, supervisor and pastoral carer tonight... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek so i should really go.

a bit frustrated tonight... for various reasons.. some regarding college, some involving placement...
oh well... it'll all have calmed down after a nice long sleep...

Well not much happened yesterday to be honest... just the usual at church and then out to a member of the congregations for lunch. Although i had nice ice cream after church at night which was exciting - hehehhe... Got lots to do today though. Got and essay to print out in it's final draft and hand into the office and then various other bits and pieces... it just never stops. At least i managed to drag myself out of bed at a decent time this morning... but then that wasn't hard considering I had workmen roking on the road outside my bedroom drilling - d'oh!

Party last night was good fun... met some new faces, met some present faces and met one or two faces from the past which was nice coz i got to catch up with them a bit......... Was nice to get home to my bed too though!
bit late on getting up this morning, which wasn't deliberate coz i have loads to do... but oh well.
NOt got many plan for the rest of the day except just to chill out and do some reading for class and some prep for the music group at church. great fun.
although there was a glimpse of snow faling there for a second... or maybe i was seeing things *shock*

Had yet another busy day today... woke up to someone knocking on my door at 9:15am followed by more knocking and then my door opening *shock*, but then swiftly closing again when the culprit realised i was still sound asleep in my bed - it was just the college janitor wanting to show the joiner my door coz it's squeaking lots and doesn't swing as freely as it should........
Anyway, since then i've been working hard on finishing my essay for next Monday and doing some other bits and pieces for church, so it's been yet another stupidly busy day... and it doesn't stop there... I'm going to a friend's birthday/flatwarming party tonight over on the Edinburgh side, and probably won't be back till late - d'oh! but it should be good fun!! will be good to see a few of my iMPACT friends again!

Well jsut out of Christian beliefs... very heavy class today - WHY did God send Christ to die for our sins... did he HAVE to... Is God in time or out of time... well the answers to these questions might not be as staright forward as you think.......

Anyway - regardless i was very tired this morning so trying to get up was fun, but i made to class in time. Got a very busy day ahead... college till 5 and then i have to leave for placement at 5:45 and won't be back till probably about 9:30pm *YAY*...

Anyway... c'est la vie

I've been working hard all day to finish the first draft of my essay, and i'v managed at last!!!!!!! It was a really hard one though, and the lecturer is a tough marker so i don't have high hopes for this essay! But not really much interesting has happened since i was working on my essay, although i did manage to give my friend Emily a scare, which has to have been the highlight of my day so far *HEHEHE* although later tonight we're going to the cinema to see 'Touching the Void' as a reward for working so hard all day!
Anyway... before i do that i have more work to do for other classes, so i have to go do that before i can go to the cinema!
oh and btw - finished HP last night - veeeeeeeeeeeeeery good... will start the next one once i get my hands on it *wink*

Having an ok day today... although had some sad news... a guy that used to come to the college and who was involved in CORE and played in the Christian band 'Poor Old Ben' was, sadly found dead on Saturday morning after taking his own life... so despite the fact that life in the college continues on, there is a sad and chillin atosphere. A lot of people are understandably upset... but look forward to seeing him eventually.
on a happier note, i managed to drop a plate today - and it's smashed - OOPS! just as well it wasn't full ;-)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!! so much to do and so little time!
Doing an essay on Humanness and the concept of our relation to the Imago Dei and also sin and how human beings relate to it - interesting, but very hard to get your head around when trying to write a flowing and coherent essay!!!!!! eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!
