I’ve got to admit, I really enjoyed it! Even though it may be a bit far fetched, judging from my own high school experience. But then, aren’t all the high school movies far fetched? I wish more of them told students that it may not always be easy in high school, you may not always be able to get the boyfriend of your dreams, and clique lines don’t always fade because you sung a song together. Instead, you can define yourself however you want, and be with the people that actually care about you, even if they aren’t the most popular or attractive or whatever. Basically, high school life often isn’t like the movies, but that is okay, and it doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you or your school or your friends.
Wow, this was meant to be simply me telling you all that I enjoyed that movie. But I hope this helps someone.
On a side note, did I miss something? Because I am still not sure why they called themselves the breakfast club.
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
This passage is significant to me (in fact, Romans chapters 6-8 all are), because I know what it is like to be someone who knows the law well, and yet in my knowledge, gives in to sin, over and over again. But I know that Christ is at work in me. I do things I know are wrong, things I don’t even want to do, because it is hard to break the sinful nature in my life. But Christ has come to fulfill the law in my life, so that I can live the way I want to, that is, broken free from the slavery to sin. So that I can live comfortably in the law of God that I so desire to follow.
It is huge for someone like me to know that even though I’ve sinned (and knowingly, after I knew what God desires of me), I can still find my forgiveness in Christ, and I need not be condemned.

Thats a fricking rockmelon in Australia so this was the most confusing crap ever. “i said i was going to run away and get married but my mom said i rockmelon”
that’s what you australians get for naming stuff weird.
Eugh I read it as rockmelon too before I read these comments. It’s a melon that looks a little like a rock, what other name does it need?
April is almost over and I have not had any fast food ALL YEAR! I’m happy with my efforts, seeing as I work across the road from both KFC and Maccas. I feel like I don’t need to rely on them at all to get food, when I can get something fresh and delicious and much more filling and much less unhealthy and much much less big corporation. Yes, I’m happy with this decision :)
So this month I happened to pick up two new skills, they’re both reasonably small I guess, but they are both pretty exciting to me.
Skill 1: I learned (off my boyfriend (Gabe, from this point on), my father, and the internet) how to collect seeds from various different plants. Gabe has constructed us a herb garden, and we have some annual herbs that we can collect seeds from, and I have various annual flowers that also provide seeds for us to collect. So that is the first new skill I learned, and I feel like it will be very, very useful.
Skill 2: I learned, just today, how to make chai tea. I looked at a recipe, but I’m terrible when it comes to recipes with things like this, because I always experiment with amounts and I never measure (when it is simply flavour to achieve. If I was baking a cake, I’d measure). But what came out was delicious, so I’m happy with it, even if it is not what the recipe dictated.
I’m really enjoying doing this, still, I’m noticing that I learn a lot more than I realised, but I love learning things that are significant to me. No idea what task I’ll tackle next month, but I will definitely keep you updated :)
Hey guys, it was my birthday this month! Also, I owe you all a huge apology for the lack of posts I’ve been making recently, I do love you all and this blog (and my other that is also lacking posts), I’ve just been busy.
Back to my birthday. I turned 22! That was a lot of fun, and I had some amazing people come and help me celebrate which was awesome. Didn’t get too many presents, I didn’t really need anything, but my favourites were a gorgeous apron and earrings with honey bees on them from my lovely boyfriend, and from my parents, tickets for Billy Joel live in concert! With Icehouse, Guy Sebastian, Diesel, Mark Seymour, Shannon Noll, and Illumination Road (who was the only group I’d never heard of). Ohhhhhh my goodness everyone was AMAZING! I have to say, one of my favourite moments of the night was when Icehouse had everyone in the stadium on their feet singing along to ‘Great Southern Land’. It was beautiful, and I have always loved that song. And then Billy Joel, I was on the edge of my seat (quite literally) in the lead up to and the start of his performance, I was just so excited. He was incredible, I am so glad he decided to come down here when I could (just) afford it! There are a few artists I want to see before they get too old and stop touring, or die, and he was one of them. Ringo was another one that I was lucky enough to see earlier this year too.
So I feel pretty caught up, other than that I’ve just been alternating between getting a reasonable number of shifts at work, and getting none for a fortnight. Which is pretty sucky, money wise. I’m going to try and get on here a bit more to ramble on like this and post some more valuable things that aren’t rambling, besides updating you on my monthly skills and my junk food challenges (updates for both ARE coming up after this).
Much love, and many thanks for putting up with me!
So I’ve been at this conference the past two days, but (sadly) won’t get to go today. However, I’m not entirely missing out, because they’re streaming live online! If you have a spare moment, I thoroughly encourage you to check it out, there have been amazing speakers all week, and I imagine today (the final day) will be just as good, if not better :) I feel like I personally have learnt a lot.
So I’ve been thinking about something a lot and it’s the phrase “Oh my God” or even “omg”. See, I was raised to think this was a bad thing. Then I had a rebellious phase where I used the phrase for like six months because my best friend did when I was…
I must stop
I think this is an important reminder
there is only one room in my entire house that doesn’t contain any books. We have A LOT of books.
