Had an interesting conversation with two of my housemates tonight, it’s not what I thought we would be talking about but not unwelcome I might write more about it tomorrow but it has opened my eyes to a few different things and points of view, it is amazing that when you are doubting your need to be somewhere and the impact that you are having God pulls you aside and shows you that all of...
Puking my guts out 7 times in a row is not what I call fun particularly when I have had very little sleep since finishing night duty and have to go back again tonight at least I feel a little bit better and hopefully I can still work tonight
ohioisonfiire: Update from Australia: A school boy has been suspended for 15 days due to throwing a vegemite sandwich at prime minister Julia Gillard. As much as I believe that you should respect people of authority even if you dont like them, this is actually pretty funny
worldaccordingtofangirls: i am so jealous of europeans three hours of travel and they’re in a whole different country, a whole different culture like seriously three hours of travel and i’m in another town that’s just like mine except three hours away
I got my passport photos done today they look as horrible as passport photos do but they will work.
Been looking at the IELTS a bit more now that its not 3am and im on my computer and not my phone lol and although I havnt had a full look at the writting component I think it wont be as bad as I first thought. the listening part will probably be the easiest and i hope the speaking wont be to bad as long as i answer in full sentences and blab on a bit (which my introverted self finds hard to do)...
I thought I was pretty good at English and then I tried the practice test for IELTS :/ don’t think I’m that good now lol, I really hope I pass this thing. More importantly tho I hope I can get my passport in and approved so I can actually sit this dumb thing :/

Advice From Older Women
Woman 1: Do you think he's "the one," Lauren?
Me: How am I to know that?
Woman 2: Do you want him to be "the one?"
Me: Of course I do. I'd be wasting our time if I didn't.
Woman 1: Just remember that if he's going to be the one, you have to consider more than how you currently feel.
Woman 2: Exactly. You have to consider what it will be like when marriage is less exciting after the initial newly-wed high.
Me: Okay, like what?
Woman 1: Even when you find yourself less attracted to him, at the end of the day, do you still think he is overall a good man--because that matters.
Woman 2: Yep. It's the simple things that you think are obvious. But they're not. They're important. For instance, is he a man of integrity? What do his friends think about him? Does he take care of you? Is he going to be faithful? You don't know everything--you can't, but what do you see him making patterns of in his behavior.
Woman 1: It's the basics that carry you through hard times, lonely weeks, and stale months. It's trusting each other to be steadfast. It's the basics that make you able to choose marriage on the days you wish you could walk away quietly.
Me: What made you stay when you wanted to leave the most--whenever that was?
Woman 2: Marriage is not the pursuit of happiness. It is a covenant that daily chooses to love through self-denial. And sometimes that's easier than other days. But you have to make that choice. That is one decision that will always pay off and not be regretted.
Woman 1: You must live covenant minded--not emotion driven, but God enabled.
