Blah – really can’t cook. To quote mum, ‘the burning smell is your trademark’. What happened to my good meat pies, nice properly cooked cookies, cakes etc…? How annoying.

A Tuesday, never my favourite day. Practical Evangelism. annoying – debates, basically stuck with a horribl etopic, not enough research time and very few of our group willing to participate (or know where to start). I did not have much insentive, getting up in front of others even less so. At least I talked – probably crap, but yeah, I talked.

Rowan took our OT class as Glen T was away sick. Most insightful OT class so far, all about prophesy/the prophets.
I put a little though into that conversation I had with ___ a while back about prophesy. I am as yet unclear. I need to read more about it, talk more about it with someone.

Accountability group day. It’s fantastic hanging out with Katie and Jo. The question that seemed to get each of our hermit crabbed selves talking was, ‘what’s been most on your mind’ (or the Jo rephrase, ‘your headspace’).
I bought up the converstations thing. Really it’s been a fairly low key week – no major drama’s that my mind could think of then (or now), maybe if I read back I’ll find some. What more of a reality to check (to have forgotten) to live each day for the now, not to worry about tomorrow – it never comes afterall.

God please filter – no, flood my every day with your realities. Teach me so much more. Help me to stop and think and tell you of your greatness… and yet you intricately care for every aspect in my life. Thank you for friends. For conversations, the opportunity to learn and grow even when it seems kind of boring and dry.
Thank you Amazing holy God. You gave so much to save me, you chose to cover my guilt, my mistakes, my sinfulness. How can I thank you?
Too good Abba – I don’t deserve you.
Help me to learn how to listen to you.


A continuation of my ‘who is bec’ through 5 senses.
Sitting here with absolutely no thought into this one as yet, but I have time so why not.

Seeing things

… trying to work out things that I ‘see’ that I like, or hate etc… that aren’t just obvious, also what other angles you can come in on things.

big factor: design, I really like things to be aesthetically nice. From words, to art, to photographs, to scenery, to the way I have my room, to what kind of journal I use… and sadly the influence it has upon books I look at buying – although that can be sometimes overlooked.

I get annoyed when I see stores or books using crummy fonts (well known, or ‘grade 6 style’)… this could be partial ‘geek/nerd’ factor. see: ban comic sans
I frustrate people with having to ‘get it right’

General taste. it comes down to being selective, relatively minimalistic, and um… coordinated when called for 😛

Random things take my fancy 🙂 the terrace house with the orange door.
Particular trees.
Satistfying layouts… colour used effectively.

Specifics – (to like)

A clear, dark sky with stars

Bare green hills (‘rolling hills’ too cliched to use but yeah, them)

Flat of the outback, where you can do a 360 and see nothing but horizion, the small feeling you get.




Interesting people on trains – ‘the characters’

‘Borders’ – rows and rows and rows of books

The view over melbourne from Sky High or Burkes lookout

The fireplace at my grandparents and their horrible carpet

The plaque in my grandpa’s garden, ever overgrown, the words mostly worn.


Specifics (to not like)

Pinkness, the overuse. Frills and bows, flowers.

The KFC in Bayswater – minimalistic is only good to a certain point.

Clothing with the brandname plastered across the front.

A sink full of dishes

…hmm thats about all I can think of.

Qu’s & A’s

– yes I don’t mind Fed Square, it looks good.
– yes I would re-do some of my room, had I the money or time
– no my taste doesn’t unfortunately make it into fashion – in that I am a practical/immitator. I take siblings for shopping advice. I don’t really have my own unique style
– yes I get unusual fascinations with things like, chairs, doors, fonts and colours… so. maybe its a little strange – let people think that.
