As much as I want to be living in the present and not have to think about what is going to happen in the next few months, there is no way that I can avoid thinking about it. Without even making plans, there is already a lot for me to do even before I leave South Africa! So to think that I have to decide what I am doing after that makes my brain hurt.
In 3 1/3 months, I am going to have to get on two planes by myself to head back to the UK, one from East London to Johannesburg and the next from Johannesburg to London, Heathrow. For those of you that have been reading my blogs for a while now, you will know that the thought of getting on a plane terrifies me, so that thought of getting on two by myself freaks me out even more. But in all reality, I am feeling much more settled than I ever thought I would, however, I think that is because people have been praying for me.
When I get back to the UK, I will be heading straight to Newday, a big youth camp, with the intention of serving. You have no idea how excited I am for that, also as it means that I will be able to see friends that I haven’t seen for a long time! Without even thinking about the amazing God encounters that will happen there, I am already pumped for a week of pure excitement.
So here I am talking about the little things that are going to happen when I get back to the UK, but I am also going to be doing something that nobody (not even me) expected me to be doing, just because of my attitude towards it last year.
If you know me well enough, then you should have guessed what it is by now. Yes, I am applying to go to university to do a Certificate in Education. Thankfully, it is only a year long course so I won’t be stuck studying for years, but the hope is, it will give me a little bit of an extra edge and something that I could potentially fall back on.
Anyway, I feel that’s enough for today. Some of you will already have fallen off your chairs when you found out that I am voluntarily going to university, so I won’t give you anymore surprises today!
