Refreshing

This topic suggestion, Weekly Photo Challenge: Refreshing, is from The Daily Post as part of the Post-a-day writing challenge. In our lives, there are certain areas that sometimes need refreshing. However, far too often, we will find ourselves caught up in the business – or busy-ness – of living, and won’t give time to refresh…

Three significant events in my life

A couple of days ago, it was my birthday. I turned 25. So I think it’s an appropriate time for me to reflect and give my thoughts on what I thought were the three most significant events that have occurred during my lifetime.

Don’t try so hard!

I played a round of golf on Monday, as I had a morning off from work. The first couple of holes weren’t great, until I started telling myself not to try so hard. See, when I tried hard, the extra power would put my technique all off, and my shots would either be really short,…

Most important thing I did in 2010

I did a lot of important things this year. From becoming a Senior Soldier in the Salvation Army, and starting the application process towards becoming a Salvation Army Officer, getting a job and starting working essentially full time (across three jobs), moving out of home, and probably most importantly of all – getting married. It…

Good things come to those who wait…

… And I’ve waited a long time, so great things are happening to me. I’m sitting in Soto espresso, a coffee shop in Perth, drinking a coffee that tastes fantastic. Actually, it would probably taste fantastic if they served me international roast, I’m feeling that good at the moment. Well, maybe not. International Roast is…

Success

I went to see Fame tonight, with a few friends. Despite having heard of some bad reviews, I really enjoyed it. Perhaps having not seen the original meant that I could enjoy this on its merits. There were a couple of parts of the movie that really stuck with me that I wanted to share….

I saved three lives today

I saved three lives today. What did you do? That’s right. 3 lives, saved, because of me. I don’t know who I saved. I don’t know what was wrong with them. I don’t even know when they will be saved. But I do know that because of me, three people will be able to live…

The Puzzle of our lives

This title is directly ripped off a post by Jason Heath, who in turn directly ripped it off an article by Doug Yeo. They are both well worth a read.

New Directions

Well, today marks the day that applications for the World Council of Churches Youth Internships close. I actually got mine in Friday night (if I remember correctly), but all the same, now starts the waiting game. I’m not actually sure when I’ll find out about it, and I’m in the odd situation of wanting to…

Einstein’s Violin (Pt. 2)

January 6, 2008 Well, today I climbed, after a descent to the “beach” of large rocks at the wind farm. 507 steps, and quite steep as well. A nice bit of exercise for me. Continued reading Eger’s book. Brought up some more interesting points – one of which I am a fan – the need…
