I have a feeling I'm being brainwashed. I now have a AFL team that I'm barracking for. grr at Nathan. Well to my followers and readers I have become a fan of the Gold Coast Suns and am going to watch a game in July. They may not be the best team but they did start this year...and so have I...I mean I became interested in AFL this year. So I see that as good a reason as any to barrack for them.

What's happening?????

This world once had a beautiful era of manners, etiquette and beautiful fashion. Children were brought up in a community where everyone knew everyone and teenagers respected their parents. Where teenagers went out to dances not clubs and they had book clubs and study groups. And they baked! Well this is at least what the movies say about the 1950s, I wish and hope it was so because I love everything about that time and wish I could time travel to back then. But now the real question...what's happening in today's world? WHY ARE THE TEENS SO...I DON'T KNOW! Just terrible? I have come across few teens who will speak the English language without the use of a few hundred 'like's. Like this happened and like I totes like think that like we should like I don't know like maybe like go to the like shops? ARGH! And then don't even get me started on computer games! What is the entertainment of sitting by yourself playing a game??? I would much rather play a board game or a card game with a few other people where we can laugh and talk and generally have a genuine great time! And then there is the fashion...who in the world is creating the clothes for these teenagers? I saw a girl yesterday who had a see-through top on and just a bra underneath...I mean come on! It's winter!!!! Put a few more layers on! No one wants to see your bra in public. They only place that I will see bra's (other than my own) is in the lady's department of a store and even then I creep through there embarrassed! Bra's are not meant to be seen by the public eye! 
*Sigh* I just hope I can bring my future children up to be well mannered and respectable and modest.

I'm back!

And so after several months of absence I return to my blog...I'm SORRY! I had apparently lost enthusiasm and  focus on it but I'm back and I'm going to keep going. However, I'm not going to continue with the challenges per week. I instead will just write about whatever I feel like.
so what's happening in my life lately?, you may ask. hmmm quite a few things. I'm almost finished with my first semester of my second year at university. It has been hectic and stressful but good. I'm keeping up my grades and perhaps even improving. yay! I'm still with Nathan and we have been working through things together. I love that when we have a problem that we don't scream and rant and rave. Instead we are mature and actually talk through our difficulties...like good adults should :P One thing though that I'm finding difficult is that I remember when I was still single that I read a passage somewhere in the bible about how when you are single it is good cause you are able to devote more time to God. And that when you are married (or in a relationship) you will find that your focus shift changes. Instead of just God you have to share you time with Him and your partner. I'm finding just how hard that can be. I don't want to lose my passion for God but I don't want to leave Nathan behind either. It's all about balance...something I don't handle very well. So I'm working on balancing time with God and Nathan and my friends and my family and myself and uni and work and...ahhhhhhhh! so much in my life...I hate it sometimes...I honestly do...but then this is what it's all about...learning to trust in God that everything is going to be alright and He has it sorted!
