Here are some things that I’m thankful for this week:
I’ve been looking for some black boots for a very long time and I’m very particular about what I like. Basically I just wanted something like my old ones, but they’ve proven very difficult to find! On Saturday we went shopping and I found a pair that was half price and real leather (a bonus that I do preferred but expected to be too expensive). Here’s hoping that they last longer than my old pair. I’m very thankful to have finally replaced these shoes in my wardrobe.
Before I got to college I didn’t know what a revue was. Here it is basically a bit of a talent night mixed with a comedy night. It is expected that all acts will be funny. I enjoyed the fun and laughs of last year’s revue but this year’s was even better. There was much less of the (admittedly very Australian) humour of paying each other out which made the night feel much friendlier. I was in two acts; one a medley of songs re-written on the theme of Jesus’ ascension (a comedy of our recent second year hymn-writing Doctrine 2 assignment), and a dance with some boys attempting ballet in the background (they were the funny ones, not the ‘real’ dancers). One of my favourite acts was about the strange things that some people donate to our college op-shop. It was such a fun night and I am truly thankful for the community that I am a part of at college.
What are you thankful for this week?
