New Music, New Thoughts, New work?

So, it’s been a while since I last blogged.  Several things have happened.  So, here’s my list.

  1. I’ve been searching for more jobs.  Got an interview tomorrow with a fundraising organisation.  I’m a little nervous, but that’s normal right?  Guess all I can do is be prepared and then leave the rest in God’s hands.
  2. Simple Plan have performed a brand new song…which initially I thought was ordinary.  Nothing wrong with that, right?  Well, you’d think I’d murdered somebody when I stated my opinion on what I felt about the song and title.  Granted, I can’t stop listening to the song, now.  But, some people just don’t get that people are allowed to change their mind.  I still think the title is corny.  And, it’s not the best song they’ve ever written.  I guess part of me is just jaded because I’ve been waiting so long for new music from them.  
  3. The Gathering is coming up, but unfortunately I can only go on Wednesday night [the women’s night Awake My Soul] because I have to go East for work on Friday.  Our Senior Pastor will be getting up on Friday night and talking about the past year.  He’s been recovering from being sick.  
  4. I’ll be going to Muresk to help out at the annual STAWA Conference.  Should be good.  Driving up with a work colleague.  You know who you are 😉
  5. My friend had her birthday party early [her b’day is actually in July], because she’s trekking overseas not really trekking…].  We had a fun night.

So, that’s what’s been going on with me lately.  And now I leave you with a thought.

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10  (New International Version)

Long Weekend!

It’s the long weekend, Foundation Day here in WA [Queen’s Birthday in the eastern states].  This is the weekend where if we’d still been in Townsville, we would have gone up north [yes, north] to get our little slice of winter.  We used to go to the Lake Eacham Hotel in Yungaburra, had an open fire and fun trivia and family night.  But, here…we don’t have to go anywhere for winter.  I’d rather fly back to Townsville and have winter there…

Anyway, before I go on about the weekend, I’ve managed to accomplish several things in the past few days.  Here’s the list.

  1. Been to CentreLink to register for some form of benefit [we’ll see how that pans out.]
  2. Been to CFI to register on Job Services Australia.  
  3. Worked.  
  4. Almost completed my MYOB course, two weeks left.
  5. Procrastinated a bit…

So, that’s it for now.  Back to the long weekend.

At Church the new them for June is Faith: Expectant.  I’m expecting good things to come.  The previous theme, Going Public.  Not Ashamed, is my new life theme.  I even have the [long-sleeved] T-Shirt to prove it!

Next blog I’ll probably post a photo.  Anyway, I have to go home now.

Life Kicking In

So, I’m back on the job hunt again.  Going to CentreLink either tomorrow or Thursday, [calling them tomorrow] and hoping to see if they can help me out with looking for suitable work.  To be honest, though, I don’t want teaching work.  I know, it seems a waste the fact I’ve done a science and a teaching degree, but I think I just did the teaching thing because I thought it was a good idea at the time.

I’ve noticed on Seek that there are some teaching positions available for next trm and fourth term, but I’m just not passionate about it anymore.  Speaking of which I have to get in conact with my CSP, because I’m slack, and I need to talk to him, fill him in with where I’m at right now.

Part of me, really doesn’t like talking on the phone though…silly, eh?  Oh well. 

Anyways, I’m off to sleep now.  [Is anyways a grammatically correct way of spelling that?  Well it’s not wning anything…is it?  or something.]

Right.  Leaving it here.  Bye.  Night.  Or Day wherever you people reading this [if you’re reading this] are.

Morning Rant

There are some things that I know I’m right about.  There are some things I think I know I’m right about.  But, maybe I’m not so right?  But some things just burn my tyres.  So here’s a list.

Scientific Theories, Laws and Hypotheses 
This particular set of definitions, is something I need to set out, because of a heated discussion I had with somebody online some months ago.  Yes, I know I should just let it go…but, I can’t.  So…here it is:

    1. Laws: This is a statement of fact meant to describe, in concise terms, an action or set of actions. It is generally accepted to be true and universal, and can sometimes be expressed in terms of a single mathematical equation.
    2. Hypothesis: This is an educated guess based upon observation. It is a rational explanation of a single event or phenomenon based upon what is observed, but which has not been proved. Most hypotheses can be supported or refuted by experimentation or continued observation. 
    3. Theory: A theory is more like a scientific law than a hypothesis. A theory is an explanation of a set of related observations or events based upon proven hypotheses and verified multiple times by detached groups of researchers. One scientist cannot create a theory; he can only create a hypothesis.      In general, both a scientific theory and a scientific law are accepted to be true by the scientific community as a whole.

Religion vs Science

These things can go hand in hand.  Science doesn’t necessarily negate the probability of there being a God, or supernatural forces.  There are many things that Science cannot explain.  And may not ever be able to explain.  And, you know what?  That’s okay.   


People who are too stubborn.

I might be one of those, so maybe it’s a case of dealing with my own stubbornness.  But, it still annoys me no end.  Which kind of leads me to the fact that I’m just putting this out there, I’m not going to be ashamed of what I know.  Nor am I going to be ashamed of what I believe.


I’m a Christian, and I’m proud of it.  Make of that, what you will.
