Thirty by 30

Seeing as I am 24 in about 2 months time, I didn't think that 14 months was long enough to do all the things on my list with everything thats going on, and theres some that I have already completed so I'll be including some but not others! So I'm changing my list all together because I don't really like some of the ones that were on the old list haha.

So here goes nothing...

1. Graduate with a Distinction
2. Complete FLEC certificate

11. Read all the books on my shelf!
12. Own all the F.R.I.E.N.D.S dvds (almost there, only need seasons 3 and 4 to complete my collection!)
13. Travel to the UK

16. Make a Quilt!
17. Buy a sewing machine for said Quilt

27. Improve cooking skills, incorporate some vegetarian dishes (need recipes for that one!)

Four Months

Easter Camp happened over the Easter break, S and I directed this camp, which is a camp to focus solely on what Jesus Christ went through to reconcile you to God, how He took on all our sin and paid the consequences for our failures. Was a fantastic weekend of fun activities and amazing worship.    

I love to cross-stitch, these are some of my creations both finished and unfinished, since uni has started back I've had to spend a bit more time on that then my hobbies, which is sad but good thing I like my uni work!

The next few photos are from a family holiday I went on with my in-laws, up to Port Douglas in Northern Queensland. I had never been that far North of Australia before and I must say it was amazing. We went  from the 21st of June to the 28th of June. Beautiful 25 degrees or more every day in the middle of winter is something I could get used to!
My favourite photo is at the end and I didn't even need to put any filter on it! Just beautiful.

Snorkelling on the great barrier reef!

Cape Tribulation

Where the Daintree rainforest meets the ocean.

 It's been almost 4 months since I posted last, and as you can see I've been doing quite a bite. If you've been following my sister Kylie's blog you will have also heard about the accident with my mum, this year has outdone itself! And we are only halfway!

So I am in week 3 of semester two in the second year of my three year degree, the finish line is almost tangible! I have placement coming up in the month of September and will be at Hawkesbury and Westmead hospital in Sydney. Really looking forward to it as I have not yet been to a big city hospital.

But between now and then I've got multiple assignments and mini tests to complete, a Hanson concert to attend in Sydney, and many other things that'll become hectic and make me feel like I have no time. I know I'm only young and don't even have kids yet but I feel like I'm so busy with so many different things that I can not wait till november when I am finished my uni for the year and hopefully life will calm down a little bit!!!!

It's been a while since I've linked up but I still read tuesday blogs over at Essentially Jess each week.
