Some of you know that after quitting my job I am now in a ‘hobby/business’ partnership with my Mum selling (mainly) kids books on ebay. Anyway for about 20 listings last week I got about $100 – which is as much as I was getting with my previous job excluding travel costs and time specific settings. So I’m pretty happy.
I’m even more happy to see that some Grug books I have up at the moment have passed the $70 mark – this is for three small, a little worse for wear paperback picture books. HipHooray! People are stupid when they want something that bad.
A very sore throat has also returned. It seems that 2006 is the year for getting sick. This would be me reaching the 5 times or so and it’s only just turned June. Disappointing.
I wound up at Tabor today. Quite intentionally. I have to get a refree for an ESA junior camp I’m leading on soon. Rowan was busy but I managed to locate Tilla. Oh was it good to see her! So she wrote nice stuff on my form and I had a true Caf style ‘chicken burrito’ lunch. Ran into Marko and Clare (unfortunately didn’t get to see Matt). Had lunch with Clare and April and some other girl. I stayed and used the library to study – which was a supremely good idea. And if anyone fires an acronym at me I think I’ll blow it – multimedia is so choked with them.
I took half an hour or so out of study and went to Gathering (or Chapel or whatever you like to call it). It was a nice feeling to be back – but very different. More study and as I was leaving ran in to catch Rowan. He looked really tired. Last day of the semester for the ’06 YITS Crew. Said hi to Chrissy, Gabby and Dylan. A good time to pray for them (if you happen to know any – or even if you don’t) the mid-year break was a difficult one for almost everyone and the tradition I’m sure keeps up.
Very productive, enjoyable day. Young Adults tonight. Three cheers for everything being vaguely social. Perhaps I am an extrovert afterall!
