I just got back from the hospital again. Luke is doing so much better! It's incredible!!! We couldn't have hoped for a better recovery! He can move his arms and legs now with no pain (on day two!!!) which is so awesome. That means he can get stuff off the table for himself, and operate the tv and his ipod, and things like that. He can't move his body, but they did roll him on his side a couple of times today to get him moving. He still can't get out of bed and had to have a sponge bath today. Haha! He's still really positive, but getting bored coz his day goes so slowly. He's having trouble sleeping because of all the drugs and because his body has suffered severe trauma. I'm taking him things to cheer him up each day, and he's loving that. He loves when people come to see him coz he gets so bored, so please feel free to visit him. He can keep his eyes open now and talk better, although his speech is still a little slow, but he's thinking clearly.

Here's another photo I took tonight. He's pulling a silly face as you can see!

Luke Update

Well Luke had his operation this afternoon. I went and saw him tonight and he's doing really really well! As well as can be expected anyway. The operation went perfectly! Thank God! He's in pain obviously, but he says it's bearable which is awesome. Mentally he's doing really well. He's positive and was bagging me out tonight, so he's still Luke! He can't move yet, but he should be out of bed in 3 or 4 days. Apparently the quicker they get him moving the faster he'll heal, and it prevents further complications. He has lots of tubes and things connected to him at the moment because he can't move. It doesn't look fun.

If you want to visit him I'm sure he'd absolutely love it! Visiting hours are between 2pm - 8pm daily. If you want to know where he is, just email me or call me or sms me or something and I'll let you know.

When I walked in there tonight I had tears well up in my eyes and I had to stop myself from crying. He looked so helpless and so broken. That's my little brother there. I love him and it was hard to see him suffering like that. But once I got talking to him I felt so much better, knowing that he's got such a positive outlook on this whole thing. It's hard to see him like this and know that there is nothing I can do. Well I can be there for him and I know he appreciates that.

Keep praying for him guys. It's a long journey that's only just begun! Here are some photos that I took at the hospital tonight. If you're wondering what that strange green thing he's holding is, it's a spikey, squishy, green, glow in the dark ball thing I bought when I went shopping with Naomi yesterday. Thought it'd be fun. He is always fiddling with stuff, and he loved it!!!

Big News!

Just wanted to let you know some huge news that's happening in our family. As some of you know, my brother Luke has severe scholiosis (for those of you who don't know what that is, it's curviture of the spine). He is going into hospital tomorrow for some very serious surgery. It's a really huge operation. He has the first stage of the surgery tomorrow and the second stage in 2 weeks time. He will be out of action for a few months.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) they are operating at about 1pm, and they are removing a couple of discs and cutting away muscles and tendons from his spine to prepare him for the second stage of surgery. In 2 weeks, they then attach 2 metal rods to his spine and basically tie them to it to try to straighten it out as much as possible.

If you could pray for him, that would be wonderful! This means lots of things for our family, having to care for him and rearrange our lifestyles for a while. Thanks so much!

I love you Luke! You're a wonderful brother and a wonderful man. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, but I'm always here for you!


Naomi & I had a fun shopping expedition today (which invlovled lots of cd's, dvd's, jewelery & random strange things) and then had lunch at Nandos. Mmm.... Nandos. I didn't realise how yummy Nando's was. I would like to highly recommend them to everyone. For less than $10 I got a great chicken wrap, chips and a drink. I couldn't eat it all it was just so much food! I'll be going back there! Here is a photo of me & a penguin in "Australian Geographic". One of Naomi & I's favourite shops!

Last night I was in a friend's car and he had 'faithless' playing, and I was really intrigued by some of the lyrics to one of the songs. It's called 'Mass Destruction'

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether you're soar away Sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruct
You could a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction
We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction

My psych & counselling class yesterday once again provked me to think about my life. I was wondering how much I contaminate the relationships I'm in. There is so much of my behaviour that is unconscious. I do things that just come naturally so often without stopping to think first. This is obviously a necessary part of life in many ways. If we had to stop and think about everything before we did it we'd go insane. I'm glad I can drive a car and do up my shoe laces without having to think about it. But what of my unconscious behaviour is not a helpful thing? I am very quick to speak up, and I am learning to leave more space for others. I know that I also have a 'need' to be the best at everything I do, so when I don't feel secure in my preceived identity that I am the best, I can get very defensive, and my behaviour becomes a projection of my insecurity.

Everyone has a sense of self that they instinctly protect, mostly this is unconscious. We spend most of our energy protecting this unsconscious identity. I want to be aware of how I see myself so that I can assess it and try to figure out what parts of me are real, and what parts are wrong. I know that I actually do not have to be the best at everything. Because I am aware of that, I can make choices around it, and try to change my internal dialogue. I can tell myself that these messages inside my head are not true, and hopefully my behaviour will change as a result of this shift in perceived identity.

It's one thing to be aware of many of these things that I am trying to work on, but how much do I do that I am still unaware of? Quite a lot I'd imagine. I don't want to be doing things that are harmful to building intimacy in my relationships. It goes against human nature to think before acting. We are not wired to instinctively refelct, so it is a difficult discipline to actually do it. I want to get better at thinking about the consequences of my actions before I act. I want to build positive relationships and encourage other people in any way I can.

A smile for your day!

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river."

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.

Sermon complete, he sat down. The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, "Shall We Gather at the River."

Need Sleeeeeeeeeep...

I am so ridiculously tired. I haven't had much sleep since Monday. Mostly because I'm disorganised and I don't get to bed easly because I'm either studying, or on the internet and I lose track of time. But last night I tried to get to sleep and I was just drifting off when I swear something ran up my leg and brushed my stomach! I freaked right out and jumped out of bed! I ripped the doona off and tried to find out what it was. I took my doona and sheets off the bed but I couldn't find anything. I was half asleep so I'm not entirely convinced that it wasn't all in my head. Although I'm pretty sure it wasn't. I couldn't figure out what it could have been though. Spiders don't move that quickly. It could have been a mouse I guess, but I've never had a mouse in my room and couldn't find one last night. I ran out of ideas and just got back in bed. But then I couldn't sleep coz I was sure it'd come back. So I hardly slept at all coz my mind was mostly focused on the fact that I might need to jump out of bed again any second. It was very unsettling and just made me feel ill and paranoid. I actually was feeling sick from lack of sleep and fear. I hope I get some more sleep tonight.

Chickenhead is supposed to be at my house. We were going to watch 'taken'. He just hasn't shown up. He was supposed to be here at 10pm, and it's now 10:50pm. I'm assuming he's not going to show. I sent him an sms to find out where he is and he hasn't replied. Are you anywhere out there chicken? I'm just going to go to bed. Sooooo tired...

EDIT: Chickenhead rang me this morning and he fell asleep watching stargate last night waiting for 10pm to come around so he could come over to my place. He didn't wake up til 2am, so that's why he didn't just show up. Silly boy!

Dream On!

I have weird dreams. I have so many of them, but I just thought I'd share one.

Brent was a cod fish! And he could talk to this seahorse that was in the same tank as him. Then he changed back into human Brent, but he could change back into a fish whenever he wanted to. Brent and I were all excited coz he was the first person to ever communicate with a seahorse and we thought we'd get rich or famous or something because of it.

It's official! Thanks for all your feedback guys, and based on it, Ingi & I have decided that our new band name is "SYNERGY". It's official. That's what we are going to be know by from now on. Ratty (Hugh) is in the process of designing a logo for us which we are highly excited about! Yay for Ratty! Wish he had a blog for me to link to. He's a wonderful guy who lives in Perth, WA. I haven't actually met him, but we've been chatting on a forum for about 5 or 6 years now. Great guy!

Guess what we (my family) got today? A wireless network system!! WHOO!!! I've just finished setting it up, so now I can use the internet from my room on the lap top. I'm so excited! There will be much less fighting over the computer now between Luke & I.

And a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the wonderful Paul (Master Peebody)! I hope you have a super exciting day dude! Everyone get excited for Paul's birthday!

I'd also like to share with you that I'm having a great hair day today.

Power To The People!

Ok, so Ingi & I are in the final stages of name development for our acoustic duo! Wow, didn't I make that sounds fancy? Ok, so we're just stuck on a name for our band. We have two options that we both like, and we thought we'd put it to you guys to see which name works best. We like:
1. No Image
2. Synergy

Now having a definition for synergy makes it sound extra awesome! So here is the definition if that influences your choice:
The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

So let us know. I'd create a poll for it, but I don't know how to, so just tell me and I'll tally the results.

OH YEAH!!!!!! Thanks to the amazing bigassposer (who I might add is my new best friend) I have managed to upload 2 of our songs to the net for all to hear! So if you're interested in hearing two of the songs on our brand new demo cd go HERE! The first song is 'this is how it goes' which is a cover of a Missy Higgins song, and the second song is 'any which way' which is by Ingi & I! YAY!!!!! I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!!

EDIT: Apparently some people aren't sure who is who. I'm singing and Ingi is on guitar.

Ingi & I have finally finished our demo cd! WHOO!!!!!!
*insert lots of excited girly screams*
We went over to Blaine's place on Wednesday night and finished mastering it. We now have a 5 track demo cd now that we can send out to venues to try and get a regular gig! I hope you'll all come and see us when that finally happens! We're really looking forward to that day! This is our track listing:

Feeler - Pete Murray
Any which way - Written by us!
This is how it goes - Missy Higgins
Better off alone - Grinspoon
Better be home soon - Crowded House

Anyway, part of what we'd like to do is make it available to our friends to listen to on the net. I'm trying to figure out how to upload them for free so people can go to a site and listen to them. Does anyone know how to do that? If you do, it'd be awesome if you could either email me or post in the comments how to do that. Thanks! We're planning on doing that next Friday and then going out to celebrate on Friday night and calling it our 'album launch party'! WHOO! How fun!


Tonight I had a psychology & counselling class, and afterwards one of the girls in my class said to me "You're really brainy". HAHA! How funny is that?! Not sure anyone has ever actually called me brainy. Do people ever actually called people brainy? Apart from that bad tv show 'Australia's Brainiest Kid". What a funny word!

Speaking of brains...

Indigo Girls

Do you know who they are? I absolutely love them, especially their album 'rites of passage' and the song 'power of two'. You know how you have these favourtie artists that you stop listening to for ages then you get all excited when you rediscvoer them? That's what it's like for me at the moment with the indigo girls. I love the songs 'ghost' 'jonas & ezekiel' 'galileo' and 'power of two'. I love heaps of their other stuff too, but they spring to mind as favourites. I love music! I'd go insane with out it think.

Visions of Tink...

I got a new photo! Yay for me! Here is a bigger version of it (it's in my profile a bit smaller). This is what I look like today. I'm wearing those clothes and hat right now. I'm even in the same room! Oooooo..... It's like... something... yeah! WHOO YEAH WHOO!

Also, now Matt (king Kohl) has a link on the side of my blog! Yay for Matt and his awesome gallery!


Just wanted to say that I'm feeling much better today, even though I'm more tired than I was yesterday. I'm sitting here listening to the "Ministry Of Sound Chillout Sessions 5" before I go to college coz I'm ready early for once. I must say that I just adore this cd. Who wants to get me "Ministry Of Sound Chillout Sessions 6"? Any takers?

What is up with human emotions? They are wonderful, but at times higly annoying. I hate when they don't reflect anything of reality. I feel like hiding myself away and just having a break from people for no apparent reason. I was sitting in class this afternoon thinking "all I want to do is go home". It's partially because I just haven't had enough sleep, but I have no idea why I get like this some times. Urrrgh! Annoyingness! I just need to chill out I think. I have no idea why I'm feeling stressed out.

Something's Missing...

Well I just thought I'd write a bit about church tonight. It was a really great service. I sang those 2 songs I posted earlier in the week, and Dboy gave a talk. He did a wonderful job. Yay for Danny! Oh, and king kohl said he wouldn't tell me what he thought of my musical stuff unless it was in blog form!

Anyway, the topic tonight was about loneliness and how to deal with it. It's incredible the kind of mechanisms we come up with for coping with loneliness. Some of the more prominent ones are things like substance abuse and escapism. I have even used people as a means to escape loneliness. I know that sounds weird, but I am a very people orientated person, and I used to use company to not have to deal with my own problems. If I'm surrounded by others all the time, then I don't have time to think about myself and get lost in my internal world. I've sorted through that issue, but it used to be a big one for me in high school.

There is a really helpful diagram I learnt when I was studying in Tassie. Here it is:

The outer layer is the phoney but positive self that we show others, the second layer is the negative self view that we have. It's the part of ourselves that we think is the actual real self that we just don't show people. It's all the bad stuff we believe about ourselves. I used to get stuck in that, as a lot of people do. But there is another layer!!! The inner circle that is the actual real us. The person we are, with all our potential, all our wonderful parts, but with the flaws also. It's important to remember that the negative stuff isn't all there is to us! This means we are amazing people worthy of being loved by others. We are worth something! This was a great realisation for me, as I got stuck in the negative self view! I just thought it might be helpful for others to read as it helped me so much!

Ok, so there seems to be a demand for my wonderful brother, therefore I have decided to start hiring him out to people. At this stage the going rate is $200 a day. He will be performing all the usual brother type things. Giving and receiving psychological torment, acting as a scapegoat, performing menial tasks such as changing the channel on the tv, getting drinks and retreiving miscellaneous items. He is a wonderful brother indeed, and other people seemed to have recognised this, so I saw an opportunity for exploitation! Hey, I said he was wonderful, not me. Do I have any takers? Oh, and his name is Luke and he is 20 in case this makes a difference.

EDIT: Here is the man on offer!

Makes You Think...

Well it's late, I'm tired, and I had a psychology/counselling class tonight, so I'm feeling rather introspective...

I was thinking about what my world view is, how I define who I am, what I believe, and what is true. I have had a lot of influences over the years, some good some bad, all shaping. I have picked up so much along the way, but I don't always stop to let some of it go. Is it right just to pile it all up and never sort through it again? I don't think it is.

After spending 2 years with a training organisation that is very all consuming while you're in it, I have had to do some assessing of what I really think this year. I have been trying to figure out what's me and what's them. What is it that I honestly want to take on board as truth and use in my life? What what propegated that I don't necessarily want to take with me? I'm trying to draw some personal boundaries and 'own' things for myself. I want to have integrated ideas and feelings. I don't want to just regurgitate things that have been fed to me. I want to know who I am and what I think, and be confident in that.

We were looking tonight at different views of psychology and theology, and different ways they can be viewed as they relate to each other. It made me think of how I relate to external influences. What do I just take from others? What is authentically mine? What is valid to take on board, and what ought I to leave behind? I'm thinking a lot about self identification and my self concept. Who am I, and what is it that I am owning as being authentically me? What have I mistaken for being what I really think? Some things I can work through and then accept as things that I do want to take on board, but others I can consider and then realise that I want to explore it further, or develop it, or leave it behind.

It's an interesting journey of figuring out who I am and what is valid in my life.

Music For Sunday

So I volunteered a while ago to do an item at church one Sunday night if they ever needed anything, and it seems this week is it. I sent a bunch of songs to Kate to see which one she thought would fit the theme best, and she decided that she liked two of them, so it seems I'm singing two songs! The theme this week is 'loneliness and how to deal with it', which I think is a fantstic idea because everyone struggles with this at one time or another. Especially as a teenager/young adult. I'm doing 'something's missing' by John Mayer, and 'untitled' by Simple Plan. Great songs. I'm doing the simple plan one by myself, I'll just accompany myself on keyboard, but I think I'll need a bit more of a band to pull off the John Mayer song. I don't think it would work just as a piano piece. Wish I could play the guitar better. Here are the lyrics if you're interested in reading them:


I'm not alone, I wish I was
'Cause then I'd know I was down because
I couldn't find a friend around
To love me like they do right now
They do right now

I'm dizzy from the shopping mall
I searched for joy but I bought it all
It doesn't help the hunger pains
And a thirst I'd have to drown first to ever satiate

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is
At all

When Autumn comes, it doesn't ask
It just walks in where it left you last
You never know when it starts
Until there's fog inside the glass around your summer heart

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is, no I don't know what it is
At all

I can't be sure that this state of mind
Is not of my own design
I wish there was an over-the-counter test for
For loneliness like this

Something's missing
And I don't know how to fix it
Something's missing
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is

Something's different
And I don't know what it is
No I don't know what it is

Friends - check
Money - check
Well-slept - check
Opposite sex - check
Guitar - check
Microphone - check
Messages waiting on me when I come home - check

How come everything I think I need
Always comes with batteries?
What do you think it means?
How come everything I think I need...


I open my eyes
I try to see but I'm blinded by the white light
I can't remember how
I can't remember why
I'm lying here tonight
And I can't stand the pain
And I can't make it go away
No I can't stand the pain

How could this happen to me
I've made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

Everybody's screaming
I try to make a sound but no one hears me
I'm slipping off the edge
I'm hanging by a thread
I wanna start this over again

So I try to hold onto a time when nothing mattered
And I can't explain what happened
And I can't erase the things that I've done
No I can't

How could this happen to me
I've made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

I've made my mistakes
Got no where to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just wanna scream
How could this happen to me

Who Would Have Thought?

Well who would have thought that I'd ever enjoy history?! I always hated history, but I am loving all the history I'm studying at the moment. it's facinating stuff! I wonder why I find it interesting now and I didn't then...
*goes away to ponder*

More Organisation!

So I'm getting even more organised now. GO ME! It's such a good feeling being organised, and I don't experience that too often. I got a memory stick today, courtesy of my dad. THANKS DAD! So helpful! It's a 256MB one. And I got a big yearly planner for my wall so I can plan things out better and try to be better organised. I'm very excited about this whole getting organised thing. I'm borrowing dad's laptop for the night coz I need to get some work done. I really need to get my own lap top, coz dad needs his at work, and Luke (my brother) works from home and needs our home computer a lot. The problem with this is that I can't afford to get a lap top. I kinda need $1400 to get one, and yeah, I have no money. I'm paying off bible college fees and trying to have money to live. I'm not sure what I can do about this. *sigh* Just having a whinge...

What's Going On?

I was having such a good day. I was very productive! I did lots of organising (which is a HUGE weak point of mine by the way) and lots of study, and I got out and did some exercise. I was feeling very good about myself. Then something happened, that was almost entirely outside of my control, and now I'm left feeling stressed and unhappy and helpless. How do things turn around so quickly? I'm just going to go upstiars and crawl under the covers and go to sleep now.

Oh Baby!

Just thought I'd post a really attractive photo of Grant and I.

Busking Comp Losers...

Well today was the day that Ingi & I played in a busking comp for the opening of the 'Winter in Banyule: Celebrating the Arts' festival. It was fun! There were 5 buskers chosen from the ones who sent in applications and we were one of those lucky groups. We played two half hour sets in Were St. Montmerency and had a selection of people hanging around to watch us which was nice! We like having an audience! There were prizes given out at the end of the day. Unfortunately we didn't win any :( That's it, everyone do a collective groan....
The judge's prize was $500 and that went to these two amazing acrobat guys who had a full on show! They deserved to win! Here's them posing for a photo after they won:

You should have seen what they could do! Then the people's choice award of $100 went to these two girls who did this African drumming routine. We were disappointed at not winning, but the other people really deserved to win, so it's all good. We're cool. We got a thankyou gift bag thing that had all sorts of goodies, the most exciting one being a small box of chocolates, so we could console ourselves after having lost.

But a huge thanks to those of you who came to support us, we really appreciate it. Here we are before we got underway:

Looky What I Found!

I checked out a site of someone who posted here and look what I found! It's hilarious is a really bad kind of way! You've been warned!

By the way, just thought I'd clear this up for some people. I am mostly known on the net as Tink, and to some people in real life, so that's why people call me Tink from time to time. But the name Tink was taken on blogs, so I had to go with this other crazy name I made up. LONG LIVE TINK! And Ludicrousity...

Sock Excitement!!!

I have just been to the wonderful site of Biz and she has inspired me to talk about socks! Check out her blog for more exciting tales of her new and wonderfully exciting socks!

Socks are one of the most exciting things in the known universe. Indeed in the unknown universe as well I suspect. I don't know of too many more exciting things than buying a new pair of socks and wearing them for the first time. If anyone is ever in any doubt as to what they should buy me for any sort of present, then get me a pair of knee high fun coloured socks! OH YEAH!!!!! SSSSSOOOOOOOCCCCCCCKKKKKKKSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!

Here is the promsied blog of answers to everyone's questions! So much blogging I can hardly keep up with my own site and I'm online EVERY DAY!!! You're all crazier than me! Now THAT'S a statement! (see my photo for proof).

The Christian Living Seminar subject is basically reading the bible and studying society. Seeing how the bible relates to our culture, and how best to live it and represent it to others, so that is real, accurate and relevant. It's also about personal growth and seeing what God is asking of us personally.

No, we don't do human sacrifices, but I may be willing to start this up if someone annoys me enough... :)

No cheese I'm not ignoring you. Why do you think that? Sorry if I did.

Bible College is soooooo different to Certificate IV in youth and community work (christian) and diploma! It's much more comprehensive. I think there is a much wider view of everything, it's much broader in it's perspectives on things. There is a lot more research done and discussed on theories and topics we study. There is so much more homework invovled! There is a lot of reading to do and papers to write. C4 was very activty based, this is more academic (being a uni course and all). It's better all around I think. Not to diss c4, they do some great things, but it's not as good as this.

BAP, yes, the church have done some questionable and down right wrong things in the name of religion and God, but it's important to study all aspects of history I think to get a realistic perspective on what has happened so we don't repeat mistakes of the past. There are some incredible things that have been done through the ages by the church, and also some attrocities. It's important for me to learn about how to really hear God and be in close fellowship with others who are doing the same, so that we can be his voice and his body in the world to make change for positive. Our world is in such a mess that I want to be be more equipped to make a positive impact on my world.

Wednesday, August 03, 2005


I have a new lot of links down the side of my blog by the way. They are just sites I like, and thought people might wanna check out.

College is going well so far. I'm loving it! But it's a LOT of hard work! I've only done 3 out of 5 subjects so far and I have a heap of reading to do and 2 assignments due in next week. Grwk! I can invent words right? Excellent...

I'm highly excited about the student lounge having 2 piano's in it! I hope I don't spend all my time playing and no time studying...

Joke For You!

It's Official!

Today was my first official day at Kingsley College. I am now doing a Bachelor of Arts (Christian Ministry). I'm thinking about doing a grad dip in councilling afterwards, but that's a while away, so it's not something I need to think too much about just yet.

I did 'biblical survey B' this morning, then I did 'intro to hermeneutics' this afternoon. I really enjoyed both of them! I have a heap of reading to do already, and that's only 2 subjects! I do one more tomorrow (church history survey), then another two (christian living seminar II & intro to psych and councilling) on Thursday. I'm really enjoying it so far. The material is great, the lecturers are wonderful, and I have a great bunch of fellow students. And it only takes me 25 mins to get there. Yay!

Poo Happens...

Well guess what happened tonight? I rang Daniel to book in a time for us to play at the open mic night and he told me it had been shut down! We were so sad! Our regular 'gig' has been shut down. I'm sure there'd have to be something else out there for us, but we're very sad. We like the Wesley Anne, and we were getting to know all the regulars. Oh well. Poo happens. We managed to contact everyone who said they were coming to tell them we weren't performing. But we thought we should go anyway just in case others showed up who didn't tell us they were coming. So Ingi & I sat there for an hour having a good old chat. We had a good time, so it wasn't a complete waste of a night. But we're sad now... No more open mic night...


Well today was orientation day for college. It was just a half day to get to know some of the staff and find your way around campus. It was definately very helpful to go through some of the stuff. I now know where i'm going (mostly) and some of my lecturers. It was cool to meet the other mid-year intake students. I guess I'll meet the rest of them tomorrow. I can't wait to start real classes tomorrow! I have "biblical survey b" and "intro to herneneutics" tomorrow. Fun fun!

Hope to see some of you at the open mic night tonight!
