Philip and i have left a couple of lovely little messages on the mirrors for my parents return... i'm sure they'll love us... tee hee... That would be Suzi's fault of course... she gave me special pens for my birthday which you can use for writing on glass etc... dont' worry though - it comes off... not that my mum will know that *wink*

feeling quite indifferent today... have a feeling of exhaustion waving over me every so often, but life must go on... quite tired i guess, but also feel odd. It's like i feel sick, but i'm not. very very weird... but anyway - had an ok weekend... went to the theatre with the Strong's on Friday night which was a hoot! Haven't laughed so much in ages! Then on Saturday Heather and I were at the impact dedication day, which was really good. Gave me a chance to catch up with people while also introducing Heather to some folk and get her used to the madness of mission - and she told me yesterday that she's actually looking forward to mission now - so it's all very exciting!
anyway - i've got to go to a meeting...

had the last inspired for the holidays last night... was good - we were going over songs that we hope to do at the workshops in Troon over the next few weeks... also got permission to go home for a couple of days next week - woohoo! which if all works out ok, will be nice... also, i'm going to a comedy show tonight with one of my young people and her family as it's her birthday tomorrow... unfortunately though, she has to be at the impact dedication day with me tomorrow, so the celebration is apparently tonight... although i know which bus i have to get i have no idea where to get off... oh what fun! doh!

Well I had my supervisors meeting last night and was reflecting on my year here working in Kenmure, and it's quite scary to think that i've been here for so long now! I also got a book voucher from my supervisor - was very nice of him... it was a belated birthday present - teehee, very sweet though. AFter that I had inspired which was fine... but then had a debate with one of my young people (well, older young people) about BB... left me quite annoyed as i felt she crossed a few lines that she shouldn't have, but oh well...
Unfortunately, nothing else interesting happened, except Zoe and i were singing in my room while i was playing the guitar, other than that it was a pretty average night, and then of course the problem of being unable to sleep - argh! ach well...
Dunno what i'm really up to today to be honest, although i have to go into town at some point, and i might go to the cinema later, we'll see... feeling a bit more relaxed now that i'm finished college - which is nice *big grin*

It's been an averagely stressful day... managed to get some sort of song structure done for Dedication - but have pretty much done it blind, which is most annoying! Ah well, i suppose i'm just gonna have to life with it like everyone else... Also had a lnie-managers meeting - whoo hoo... but very tired, so i might end up in my bed early later again, although don't really feel like it at all... but we'll see.
The guys were watching Shrek earlier, most funny - tee hee... ah well, suppose i should go, it's not like i don't have 101 things i could be doing *rolls eyes*

ok now very angry... just hit the realisation, that with the end of term comes a crappy reduced time for using the computers in the library... as of today the library will only be open from 9-5pm - like life ends at 5pm... ARGH! it's sooooooooooooooooooo annoying! This is going to drive me nuts in the summer if i can't do any of my emails etc at night. oh man! this is so unfair!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo - i have officially JUST finished 1st year!!! WHOO HOO! nice feeling, although i still have a pretty hefty summer ahead of me, but still it'll be nice to not have to do assignments on top of youthwork for a while!

Been in class this morning... well sorta... got our placement papers back (they one i handed in LAST tuesday) and i got a B, so i'm pretty happy with that. ]
Then we had to sit through 2 presentations by 3rd years. One was based on training volunteers to interact with yp while the other was based on using prayer as a basis for our work... they were pretty good. Just hope i can give presentations as good as that another 2 years down the line - eeeeeeeeeeek!
Anyway, more or less recovered from my weekend at crossover now. Gradually getting some rest to make up for such a manic weekend! Being very reflective at the moment... is that a good thing I wonder?

ONly got up about an hour ago... Had an AMAZING weekend at Crossover! It just was absolutely fabby! very tiring though, hence a very long sleep for me last night... but all well worth it! I'll never forget.

Other than that, I also went with my young people (plus a couple of hangers-on) to Catalyst last night and it was very challenging... good worship too :-)

It was amazing - and one of the kids mum's also made me a cake with my name on it and everything... it was soooooooooooo cool! I love my kids! we played games and we played musical statues and we danced - it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo fab! i never want this day to end now! turns out, being away from home and turning 20 isn't so bad afterall... still wish i was at home though...

Washed my hair this morning when i eventually woke up, so i'm now sitting at the computer with intensely curly hair - tee hee - such a contrast from last time... Think i might invest in ghd straightener's some day, they made my hair enjoyable (does that make sense?!)
I have no idea what esle i'm up to today, other than I have a graduation band rehearsal in 20mins and then I'll have to sort out songs for dedication - i know, i know, i should have it by now, but i've just had other stuff more important going on and i forgot...
oooooooooooh i have to do my SAAS form too - argh!
ah well... what an enjoyable day i'm going to have *sarcasm*

borrowed my friends GHD straightners so currently have VERY straight hair... 'tis very cool! Also handed in my last assignment for this term this morning... year 1 is almost over! it's really weird! I've been here for like 9months! eeeeeeeeek! NOt doing much esle today to be honest. Just classes and then i'll probably chill after that. Although i should probably do some light dance practice to break my knee in coz i really don't want to do any damage to it on Saturday - what joy.

what a mad weekend! I spent most of Saturday indoors doing SSS craft and resting my knee, which resulted in my practically going nuts... then Kat wouldn't sleep in her own room due to some unwelcome guests - tee hee... and yesterday, other than being a church, i spent the day with my parents, which was cool :-)
Today however, i've been very thoughtful... although which i wasn't being because I've still got to finish my essay for tomorrow... so unlike me to be so last minute, although having said that, i pretty much know what i want to write, just haven't sat down to write it yet!
Anyway - the internet is being a pain at the moment. One minute it works, the next it doesn't... the college should really get a decent ISP!

i was meant to be going on a ramble this morning with my church. But after getting up and changed i decided that i didn't want to risk my knee. I've decided that it's probably best just to keep it up today - that way it'll hopefully be 101% for next weekend. Quite tired too to be honest... but i'm sure i'll keep myself amused, what with my SSS craft prep and my essay which i still have to finish... ooooooh AND my 2 new 'Friends' box sets - heheeh...

busted my knee last night, although it's a lot better this morning... it's all this dancin about - my knees just can't take it anymore - i'm too old - tee hee...
*then has a worried thought when she thinks about the 2 hour long dance seminar she has to lead next weekend*
ah well... it's all in the service of God *big grin* Had a good sleep again last night, and after inspired, i managed to come back and write 1000 words for my next essay - woo hoo! so only another 1000 to go... plus when i got to church last night, i was searching their crafts cupboard and found loads of stuff, which means i don't need to buy half as much as i thought today... but i'll be heading out soon, coz i've got to get tickets for HP3 - going with a friend from college and one of the girls from church - whoo hoo!

should go i guess

*whooooooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooooooooooooooo* 1 assignment down 1 to go! That's me just handed in a 2000 word report... had a moment of panic in when reading the question thought that i had perhaps not stuck to the main emphasis of the question, but then in reading the breakdown from the lecturer, i think i have, but he's got himself confused - again. The question says that we are to look at the strengths and weaknesses of the prgramme, where as the lecturer told us to look at the stengths and weaknesses of the METHODS that we used for evaluation... do you see my dilemma? Oh the lovely life at ICC...
but anyway - about to go and start the next one before i go off to placement tonight... should really go crafts shopping, but thinking i'll probably leave that until tomorrow coz it's absolutely pouring outside today, and i do not fancy getting wet! Especially not for the SSS!!!!!!!! *grins*

oh... Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!
happy birthday to you!

spent the afternoon teaching the girls the dance... seemed to go down well, which i'm glad about... then went out with dad - saw HP3 - again, but it is really such a good movie that i don't mine seeing it more than once... meant to be going again on Friday - tee hee... then we went for pizza and had a chat - only NOW am i going to get the chance to have a look at my essay and work on it - this is probably the closest to a deadline that i've ever been without having my essay done and dusted and it's quite scary... at least i have until 4pm tomorrow with no classes or other engagments to get in my way!
pray people, pray!

more or less managed to learn dance, didn't get anywhere near my essay, and now i'm just waiting for Kirsten and Jan to make an appearance so that i can teach them 'Free' for crossover... then it looks like dads coming round... which will be cool. so i might end up working on the essay into the night, so that i can go and get art materials for SSS tomorrow and then start the next essay on Friday so i can go on the ramble on Saturday... its all very complicated!

so much for not going out anywhere... some of the guys finished college today, so i ended up going out with them for a celebratory (sp?) pizza... was good though, especially since it was an 'all you can eat' deal and i hadn't had lunch today - tee hee... all good i guess...

anyway - i've still got to learn my dance for tomorrow and also do some more of my essay, so i should really go...

but before i do... just thought i'd say...

not been a very eventful morning, although my eye feeling a little bit better today... and no it's not infected dad!
Went to see Harry Potter 3 last night and it was AMAZING! i totally recommend it! Also tried phoning my parents last night, AND texted my brother, but no response... beginning to feel disowned *snob* (joking...)
anyway - not planning on doing much after college finishes today - got to finish my essay, so not planning on going out anywhere... what fun!
