And the SMART award of the day goes to:


For not eating enough dinner… or potato and pea curry just didn’t have quite enough substance or something.

Then feeling blahish crap and the good old rare hypoglacemia made a return – all through Youth (we went bowling) and I only picked up fractionally after a cheeseburger, and then I was stupid and got another one, and I’ve still got the shakes.

How completely unpleasant.

To use another post to point out a ‘good read’,

this post over on Carolyn McCulley’s blog, Priorities and Decisions: Human Beings or Doings is worth some thought. I know my life has been feeling pretty insane due to ‘not enough time’ lately.

Some of my struggle with time is knowing what I want to be doing and what I have to do (like uni) and opting for doing what I’d rather be doing (because in a sense I can argue that it’s more important to who I am) and still not ever fully getting the worth out of the half hearted effort I put there – probably due to the fact that I’ve got all these other ‘tasks’ weighing over my head.

Or I start doing stupid things like pushing sleep further and further back, just so I can finish everything.

Unfortuantely although Beth and I have discussed the possibility of a 28hr day – it’s not going to work.

It’s easy to talk to God and get caught up in blah’ing out our busy lives to him or to others and not really make the effort to listen properly.

Someone on Wednesday night – I think Evie might’ve said that, perhaps we are really a lazy society. We work 5 days, we rest 2 days – regardless of religion (I am generalising of course). We were discussing the Sabbath principle – there doesn’t feel like a whole lot of time for any of that really. I fill my ‘days off’ with far, far too much.

Little things are starting to get to me, like the fact I haven’t sat down and really read/finished anything for almost a month.

On that fine note – I have another assignment due Wednesday. A big one. I’m trying to work out when I’m going to have the time. I skipped my one lecture again today so I could get some ebaying done, in hope to clear some more time for homework, but other things have come up and I’m still where I should’ve been at 11:00 this morning.

It’s funny the news stories that get to you – they should perhaps be the world affecting ones, not so this time. There is something about knowing someone’s utter stupidity and recognition of one life worth more than another that is so intensely wrong. This time an act of kindness was repayed with death.

The chain of events, and the death of the taxi driver consequently sparked a protest and from there, people go on about hoping that, “A life was not lost in vain”.

How much do we as individuals really stand for the whole community? I don’t know if our death should ever be worth more than what we will be remembered for in life. Why when a tragic circumstance like this happens do we immediately try and gratify the situation by sucking as much out of it as we can? The same goes for solidiers really. Except their ‘choice for others’ is far more intentional.

Can death be exploited? Can life be exploited?
Should we ever capitalise on either?
