Yes I have arrived in blog-world, I can feel the geekness start to seep in.... just kidding! Hopefully I can find some interesting things to say in the coming days, weeks or months, mostly this blog will just be an outlet for my thoughts however profound or mundane.
This is an amazing feat for someone as anti-technically minded as myself, I have trouble even working the DVD, what was so bad about video's anyway? So bear with me, here's a bit about myself:
I was born in Essex, England and moved to NZ when I was 2. So I call myself a "kiwi", a "Pakeha" a "NZ-European" or whatever the politically correct term may be. Since then I have lived in Howick, and can still remember the days when "Meadowlands" was actually that. But let's not be nostalgic, where would I be without Botany Town Centre catering to my every need and want, offering caramel lattee's just $4 away.......
I am six weeks away from finishing a 3 year Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English and Sociology. Not completely out of student mode however, as next year I will doing a post-grad in teaching. Can't wait to finish and finally be out doing what I've waited this long for, although I must admit being a student has it's upside - Munchie Mart, listening to music on the bus, surviving on coffee and V, and meeting so many different people.
As most of you know, Rhett and I are getting married in January, making these next four months the slowest ever! Wedding plans are fun/hectic/exciting/hard. What I'm most looking forward to is living in our own little house with our whole lives ahead of us together. And someone to make me breakfast in the mornings :)
We have been going to a church called "Cession" for about 3months now, and I can honestly say I feel completely at home there. What I like the most about it, is the emphasis on 'community', so you feel accepted from the minute you walk in, it's grounded, and "real-ness" permeates every facet - from the people to the worship to the cup of tea afterwards.
So that's a bit about me, but I'd better save some stuff for my next posts.....
