Life and Beyond

So as is the same with many other year 12 students at the moment, we just got our enter scores. For some it has been joy and excitement and for others disappointment and pain.
For me it was closer to the second response. But the thing in all this that I have decided to blog about is the potential that it has to change my life and what I thought was my direction.
As much as the result is ‘just a number’ for us year 12’s until about February next year it is actually more than that and I guess more than we care to admit. This little number has the possibility of increasing our dreams as some realise the potential they have, crushing someone else’s dreams as the realise they may after all not be capable or satisfying someone as they are able to continue on the path they originally wants without a care in the world.
I am not going to disclose my exact enter score but I am going to say that due to my result there is a real possibility that I could be moving next year.
For those of you that know me you will be aware of the fact that I struggle with the possibility of change. So for me this is a big deal. Whilst I can see the positives I can also see the negativities. I like where I am and I like what I know and where I feel comfortable.
All in all I guess that up until I get a uni offer for next year I will have an uncomfortable wait to see if I can remain in life as normal as possible or whether or not it will hold great change for me.
I really don’t know if this has made any sense at all and knowing me it probably hasn’t.

Congratulations to all those that have achieved there desired result and those that are satisfied with there result.

I would also like to say a big thanks to all those that helped the now annual AfriAid formal be a big success we reached the target of donating over a $1000 to the charity of Ben Chong and Co. So THANKS!!!
My trip to Phillip Island with everyone was also awesome and so I thank everyone for that also. So again, THANKS!!!

I will blog again soon as more interesting things happen in my life.

So, i felt like writing a new blog considering i haven't written one in ages although i had no idea what to write. just as i was trying to think of something to write, i found out that a lady that my dad used to work with had just died.
Only about two months and a half months ago she went to the doctors becuase she had been having alot of headaches. The next day she was going in to the hospital for massive surgery to remove a brain tumor. She went through she treatment but it grew back faster and more aggressive then the first time. She had to then make the decision of wither she would leave it and try to enjoy the time she had left or go through more treatment that might not do anything except make her feel more sick. She ended up not choosing the treatment as it was not going to give her very long anyway. She tried to live out the time she had left as best as she could with her kids and her close friends.

The reason i am writing about this is because i find it all so hard to understand. I don't understand why a women that was a nice as she was that had 3 kids and an awesome future ahead of her had die to in this way or even at all. I struggle to find out hpw i can fit my faith in and around these circumstances.

If i am able to get anything at all out of what has happened it would be the whole "make the most of all oppertunities". I often hear this but don't really take notice of it. The recent events surronding my dads good friend have once again made me think about it. It was because of this that i wandered if died, what would i be remebered for? Have i done anything that is worth remebering? Have i made an impact anywhere or on anyone? This may all sound a little full on or weird but i honestly really wander.

I am now convienvced that i do need to make the most of every oppertunity that i am presented with and try to live every day as my last so that if it did happen to be my last i oculd look back and say that i gave it my best shot.
I want to make every second of every day of every week of every year mean something and be able to not regret anything.

I hope that this blog is not to weird but i just needed to write or talk or something. Who knows? Maybe it will impact someone? Or even just myself.

First ever!

Well, being a new blogger and all this is obvisouly my first ever blog! for me i think that this is a little exciting. I don't as yet know what you put in a blog or any of that kind of stuff.
Form what i have herd it is where people discuss there inner thoughts talk through things and other stuff.
At the moment in my life there is not really a whole lot going on. There is what seems to be the endless study for the exams that i'm told have the possibility of deciding the direction of my future. a scary thing when you think about it.
I am however looking forward to the new adventure that awaits me at the conculsion of school. At this point in time anyway, ask my in a week or even two days and it could be very different.
Anyway, i don't quite know what else to discuss, write about here but i guess/hope that i will learn over time. Hope this is all good for a first blog. I promise that i will get better at them!
