Disappointments can be quite painful, regardless of their magnitude.

We all experience disappointment: poor job interviews or test scores,  health challenges, social snubs, and athletic losses

Dealing with the aftermath of these problems often requires more mental or physical ability then the original performance.

Here is what I have been experiencing in recent times and sharing with you( my readers) in hope that the future will be a little brighter.

 Disappointment and failure builds character and patience so becoming more realistic.

Romans 5:3-4 says it like this: “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us—they help us learn to endure. And endurance develops strength of character”

Focusing on ultimate task ahead

This is from a fellow blooger. As a young student I really admire his prespective of the world.










I would firstly like to apologize for the lack of posts over last month. 

Starting back into the swing of the things . I recently had the pleasure of participating in a EU youth exchange program (click link to our blog).On the Youth In Action program I learnt about so many other cultures especially about Eastern Europe that I never understood before the event. I was lucky to be with people from Ukraine, Latvia ,Belarus etc, language did present a little difficulty but was quickly overcome with an open mind. The Aims of the exchange in our case was to. 

  •  explore our identity and diversity
  • understand other cultures
  • Learn more about the EU

Highlights for me were

  • Games & Activites
  • Meal times
  • And  late night fun

I had a great experience and I truly recommend to other young people  between the ages 13-21 to apply ,join or participate in Youth /School exchange or take a gap year abroad and  get out…

This informative comic was posted on Blah Blah Blog. It put me in a thoughtful mood.

If I had more spare time, I’d read a novel. OR I would add a blog post that is more than just a picture with a short description.

My Evening with Harry June 23, 2012

Earlier this week my sister suggested that we buy tickets to see Henry V.  I eagerly agreed. The posters in the underground stations of the bespattered soldier had piqued my interest. Yesterday evening we set off for Shakespeare’s Globe. Unfortunately, we encountered a series of delays and arrived thirty minutes late.

I had no pervious knowledge of this play and used all my powers of deduction to understand what was happening. England threatened to war with France – Good. Then I sank my 21st century bones into the Medieval landscape and language.  Henry V or King Harry (Jamie Parker) was outstanding and carried us into heat of battle. In his scenes I felt like a soldier, council member, a frighten civilian or a silent servant in a dark corner. He was a man with a cause and though was grieved, angry or in good humor this never changed. The St Crispin’s Day speech thrilled and I almost shouted, “Bring me my sword.”

My favourite scene was before the final battle: King Harry knelt to pray with his hand on the hilt of his sword. The words he uttered I cannot remember but intense emotion unsettled me. I have no right to be here. I shouldn’t be watching a king cry.  This is too personal.

There were many lighter scenes, and I laughed so much one time people turned to stare (This often happens). There was singing, music and beautiful harmony throughout the play.  I’m sure you can tell I thoroughly enjoyed it. I intend to go again and drag some friends with me.
