AUSTRALIA (part 1) - long awaited post about my time down under

Yesterday i got to a point where i was thinking that, oh, haven't really posted about my trip much. And it's been way too long. Some people have asked me about it, but mostly they ask about "how did he propose" :D
But besides the proposal to have my hand in marriage, which i'll also write about, i'd love to share what did happen there in the two weeks i spent there.

To start off, i had to ask time off from school. For two weeks. I prayed a lot, but got the permission. We had then purchased tickets for me and this was my first time traveling all on my own this long. Kind of scary, anxiety...

Moving, hospitals and anxiety

In the background playing this

But what i wanted to write (when i am not singing along to the songs :D ), is that i am praising God!!! For several reasons.
1. I AM BACK IN MY ROOM! I lived in the guesthouse for a week and a half and during that time my room got renovated. I have more or less all new furniture, carpet on the floor now, new sink with cupboard under it and above it, new shelves, bed, nightstand, table, even trash can! I am very happy! And i think i did a personal moving record. I have moved a lot in my life. But this time moved from guesthouse back to my room all of my...

Where are your eyes?

Something that is really close to my heart is being noticed, to be seen, to be someone. The feeling that you are appreciated, noticed, cherished, important, valued, that you matter.

Bible says to us:

"And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows." - Matthew 10:30-31 (NLT)

I've seen people on streets, homeless, street kids and other less fortunate. I don't know why, but God has given me compassion for them. I know how hard it is to live with little money, yet i have never been homeless. So i can't say how...

Moving and all that

Well been a while again since i've written. Today i sit in public area in the college because i moved. I had to move out of my room since they are renovating. I know people say that "oh wow, how wonderful", but what i see is that i need to get out of my routine. I am very stuck with my routine and it's rather challenging to be pushed out of that. I moved to another building. But the thing is that there's no wifi there. It makes me feel isolated. I mean i am so used to being connected with Peter and with my friends, so living without it, is rather..ermm, on edge. Yes, i feel being on edge....


A while ago i shared how i don't have jobs anymore. I used to have two, for those who didn't hear that news. But for two different reasons, i don't have them anymore. Which means, i only rely on support. I do try to not spend, well almost anything, because i don't have my own income anymore. But i am still surviving! Yes, that is a word i'd use, because well it is very "challenging" to live like this. I use the word challenging, because using a word problematic or hard, isn't usually shared in christian circles. But it is very hard. I don't say this because you'd feel pity on me. I share...
