twenty one and one quarter!
that's right. a whole three months has passed since the day i have entered the world of grown-ups. (missy toto, i am sure you will recollect the anniversary of a certain event that this date also signifies... back in '98..)
not many things have changed, i don't think. i still cannot drive. at all.
i still have a silly mole under my nose. i am still cheeky. my cat tessa is still the most gorgeous little lady in the whole entire world. i still watch scrubs and full house far more than is good for me. and i am still at university. yup. still there.
but a lot can happen to a girl in three months. i no longer have my tooth pimple. i have new slippers. they are teal and sparkly. i organised a camp and took my first exam in three years. (it was freaky. i swallowed a piece of chewing gum by mistake i was so nervous.) i have experienced snakes, on a plane. i have read several grown-up novels (ie not baby sitters club). i am on a committee. i have met new people, such as gareth and julia and eileen and rachel and kirsten (the junior officer ;). i had the pleasure of spending a weekend with 9 crazy 15&16 year olds, some crazier 20 somethings, a couple of 30 year olds and the cutest baby in the world. i had the very different pleasure of spending a weekend with no concept of time or preparedness. jo lowe came back, to wellington, forver - whoopee!! i branched out from the safety of music into the strange realm that is english literature, and got a real job...kind of :) (does it count as a job when your boss is your best buddy?)
so in three more months i will be halfway to 22.. scary. exciting things will happen before then: skiing (!!!) and bonding in ohakune, confirmationing, retreat/advance/sleepovers, spring wines and children's holiday clubs and people's birthdays (ie rich dave jo kate michael sarah laura joe sarah jakob - of whom two will be 21, one will be 25 and one will be 1), and lots of other stuff. (passing papers would be handy..)
i have this feeling something big is about to happen. i could not tell you what or when, but it is going to be big, and good. (not unlike my tooth pimple..) things are coming together for a reason.
