A New Season

ohwow. Well for those of you that have been eagerly awaiting an update... it's been a while! sorry! I think it's probably been a whole semester since I've checked in... *checks* Umm pretty much... 5 months. Wow. I'm glad my fish are still alive! Well. I guess I better get started.

Whoops. It's been over a month.
I'd say it's been really busy, but honestly that would be a lie. I was crazy busy for about 3 weeks after that last blog entry, what with conference intensives and then conference (and that will all be recounted if you read on), but after that... well, it feels like I was super busy for a lot of it, but honestly, if I really think about it, I don't have a clue what I was doing for my two weeks of break. I really do have to rack my brain. Anyways. This week we're now back into the full swing of school, in another, completely different (and AWESOME) set of intensives. Read on for more, vaguely chronologically...

Some light-heartedness

So this is just a quick post, mostly so I can point you all towards a new page unshamedly: my new English-Australian-American Dictionary Extraordinaire!

Being Stretched

So I feel like I should do a blog. It's been, what, 10 days? Surely something's happened in the last ten days in this fantastic life of mine that I travelled to the other side of the world to live that's worth sharing?

Supernatural Joy

Isaiah 12v3 - "With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation."

What's Church all about? Why are you going to the other side of the world to learn about God? Why on earth is God such a big deal to you? Some of you don't really get what all of this is about. Well, it's about THAT verse. And I'm only just getting that. But it's about the crazy depths of grace offered and the God of Heaven and Earth offering me the unfailing love that no-one else in this universe can.

How to Ace a Job Interview

P.S. Don't follow these tips.

So I am now an employed person. Somehow. And the job could give me a decent income... or it could not... That would depend on my ability to sell Woolworth's credit cards. And no, British people, that is not the same as the Woolworths that went bankrupt when the banks crashed or whatever happened, Australia has a different Woolworths that's a giant supermarket that owns like everything, a bit like Tesco's. Soo here are my foolproof(!) tips that I learned from getting my job...

The Journey

I love reading stories about people on journeys, epic quests of great importance. You just know they’re going to learn so much along the way that it barely even becomes about the object of the quest anymore. I’ve just started re-reading Lord of the Rings, and think how boring the book (or the films, if you like) would be if the journey wasn’t important.  It would just skip to the end.

A Geek Moment + Covenants & More!

Ok soo this was written last week, but I didn't get to upload it as my laptop ran out of battery at precisely the wrong time. But I will now be able to blog pretty much whenever as WE FINALLY HAVE INTERNET!! I have seriously never been so excited in my life :P Aaanyway...

They need to ship these to Sydney. For a decent price. And I don't care if my flatmates hate me for it, they're just hilarious. And I don't even like Star Wars that much.

Before I get into all that I’ve done in the past week I’ve been neglecting my blog (sorry to those of you who care :P), I found the clearest prophecy of Jesus I think I know today. If you know of more it’d be awesome to have a list just for my own reference – I love prophecies. And the most awesome thing about this is that last night I was thinking about prophecies, and I realised that if someone just said to me, “OK, find me a prophecy fulfilled in Jesus,” the only place I’d really know to go, straight off is Isaiah 53. And then today I just decided to read Zechariah (which is a prophetic book in the Old Testament [the first half] of the Bible).

Chish and Fips

So, college life over the past few days. Well, I'm just starting to get to the point where the days mesh into each other a little. Like, I really have to think to work out what I was doing on Monday. Monday? Monday? What happened on Monday?

Some Busking Observations

So, on Wednesday I made $11.40 (and 20 Malaysian Sen) busking for an hour and a half. Well, we actually made $22.85 (and 20 Sen and a medal from the Australian bicentennial medal collection with Captain Cook on it), but we shared it between ourselves. Considering we paid $12 each for our busking passes, and we've only done it once, there's some prospect there. But whilst busking, I made some observations:

College and Busking and Powerhouse!

Now, anyone with any knowledge of the Family Trust from back home, especially their summer camp, Chequer Tree, will be immediately confused by the reference to 'Powerhouse'. Powerhouse is the young adult's group here at Hillsong; I went to their summer retreat last week... and it was pretty much an adult's Chequer Tree.

Well, I landed in Sydney yesterday morning at 7:30am (late) spend about an hour and a half in various queues and having a few minor freak outs about Australian customs, which all turned out fine, aand eventually arrived at City Campus accommodation at about half 9! It is SO hot here - BBC says between 23 and 27 degrees, I'd say it's closer to the latter today!

Sunday, 9 January 2011


Ok sooo I hadn't intented to do another post again so soon. Though you might well hear that a lot, I have a definite propensity to ramble. But as I said yesterday I went to see my friend last night, Beth, who's just finished her first year at Hillsong and now I'M SO EXCITED!

And the countdown begins...

So, on Thursday it was two weeks until I fly out to Sydney to start my college course! I think it's beginning to sink in now, every now and then I catch myself getting quite excited. Then again, every now and then I'm absolutely terrified.
