So, a bit like a person who is late for a lecture I am sneaking back into the blog scene with this post…
I owe apologies to all those dedicated people to me who visit this website weekly, expecting an update just to find reference to my summer…which was by anyone’s standards AGES ago.
However, I return with this post!
Right, well second year is just over a 1/3 through. It was advised that we should continue our learning over the summer, and being a student I did nothing….well nearly nothing (I worked a lot at Blacks). So the second year started and surprise surprise, first year maths was a “needed” requirement in order to do any courses this year.
Now for those who don’t know me, here is a bit about me:
-I study Electronics at York
-I got 42% in my maths module last year…
This means that I effectively know 42% of the first year maths….hmmm
|This appeared on the first years timetable....|
But putting that aside I plodded on with the term and managed to get through without too many battle scars (such as burning my nose on a soldering iron…who remembers that?)
After Christmas I had to do exams and these ones actually counted towards my
life dignity motivation pokemon…Degree. So I decided to revise, which was a weird alternative dimension where suddenly tidying my room became extremely interesting and motivational…..
I am currently awaiting my results.
Second term is about the same as first term just with even more maths so I am actually screwed, however the topics are interesting so with a lot of late nights and a pornographic magazine on processors I should be able to get by.
God is good, and he is always there even when we kid ourselves into thinking he is not.
That above line probably sums up what I have learnt over the last term and a third. I can’t go into much detail because I could write pages and pages of how God has moved in my life and those around me over the last couple of months, however just be encouraged that he keeps his promises!
I am still going to Hes Church, although I have started looking at others just to get a variety.
Oh yes, I am now no longer the leader of Explore (Alpha Course style thing) for Vanbrugh CU or the PA co-ordinator for the main CU, all roles change over at Christmas. I am now Publicity Co-Ordinator for the main CU which is exciting as I get to boss people like Emily M (see previous blogs) around….oh which note, “EMILY I WANT A CUP OF COFFEE!!!”
I will at this point bring in my house a bit:
-I currently live in a house
-It is a bigish for four people
-I live with men
-Our house is called The House Of Man
The people in my house:
-Bulgaria (yes the entire country)
-Kallum Taylor (Who is now the chair of Vanbrugh)
-Jono Hodson (Who is now the head of the Vanbrugh CU)
|The Crew (K-Dog, Bulgaria, Jono, Me!)|
If you bothered to read the above lists (and I wouldn’t blame you if you had actually stopped reading this blog by now) then your eyes will see that I live with both the head of the student body for the college and the head of the Christian Union for the college. This can only be a good thing….praise God!
Yes we did continue with our failing radio show….and we hit our 1 year landmark.
We decided to do a best of show, which was hard considering the lack of actually good content, however we managed to scrape the jar (is that even a phrase?) and put together a passable show.
It was actually great fun to produce and we had a lot of listeners so yayyy!
If you want to tune in, then you can on ury.org.uk we broadcast from 8-9pm on Mondays!
Also we made a new video
Unfortunately, being in a house, a level of respect has to be kept.
Having said that last week Bulgaria, Jono and I did post-it Kallums Room:
I think Door Wars may have died =[
-For Vanbrugh CU as it continues to listen and learn from God
-For The Christian Union Weekend away this weekend
-Thanking God for amazing friends
-Thanking God for being so faithful and good
So there you have it, a very brief, probably too brief insight into the last 3 months. I worry that I cant remember most of what has happened, but those bits I can have on the whole been good..
