Still Alive

Well a friend has just updated their blog to say they are still alive so I thought I better do the same in case you were wondering. Actually I am sat here waiting for a call about my future overseas assignment so desperately need a distraction!

Time is passing quickly, can’t quite believe I am almost at the end of week 4 of my course. It is all going very well. The course is spot on in terms of relevance and I am thoroughly enjoying college life. I’ve even got out of doing early morning chores (RESULT!!!). However for those worried about the effect of this on my personal development I did have to do some toilet cleaning today and I do have to sit by an AV desk quite regularly and pretend I know what I am doing!

So for me the day starts at 7.50pm for breakfast followed by a tutor group or whole college session. These are usually some form of praise/prayer sessions and are a fab way to start the day. Lectures start at 9.25 and go on till 1pm. The way our course works is to work through one topic at a time for 1-2 weeks. The first week was all about who we are (I’m a completely confused learner but definately an INFP if that means anything to anyone!) and the second week was looking at a Biblical perspective of cross cultural working. The last two weeks have been looking at different worldviews/ world religions. All been really fascinating and we’ve had some good discussions but there is loads I want to read up more on and it is a challenge to decide what bits to concentrate on.

The afternoons are varied. Wednesday is the most important as that is when I get to run around a field after a ball which is an essential part of keeping my sanity! (My Myers Briggs assessment very kindly told me I needed to ensure I did plenty of physical activity to be more effective and I am working on the theory that that includes football, table tennis, pool and any other activity on offer here!). I’m also doing a car maintainance course (I can now detach the hoses on your car engine if anyone is interested!!) and learnt how to do dental injections on Monday although the person I was injecting and I both ended up with numb noses which wasn’t very good for confidence building! Look photos…
