Gentle Persuation

1/3/07 05:13 pm - Journal Closed

As of today, this journal is closed.
Someone still reads it with whom i want no further contact. Ever.
I dont want to hear from them, I dont want to think about them, and i dont want to censor what i say to my friends for fear that they may read it.
As far as i'm concerned they can drop dead.

Thank you very much.

If you're going to have rules, then everybody needs to stick to them, or they don't work!

I have spent the last 5 weeks teaching a module to Year 8, which nobody else has taught becasue they've been doing a different module. They've been simply working through the textbook, while i have been following the scheme of work for the Autumn Term. And now i am causing problems in the department by needing a different test to everyone else, and our results wont be immediately comparable as they'll have done different topics. And if we make anyone move groups, they'll repeat some parts, and completely miss others.

Why have a scheme of work if the whole department igores it? Or at least, tell new teachers that that's what you do, so i can do it too, and be the same as the rest of you!


12/1/06 12:36 pm - two things

#1. I am going back to church on Sunday. I finally feel like i've found somewhere good - i shall wait and see what it's really like during a service on Sunday. I have been wanting to return for a few months now, but this week has really kicked me hard into understanding, and it is now no lnger optional.

#2. In light of #1, it has been made extremely clear to me that i should not let the people who matter to me be in any way uncertain of how much they matter to me, and how much i love them.
As such, i have asked Pippa, Sarah and Alice to be bridesmaids at my wedding. I could not do such an improtant thing withouth my best friends there beside me to share it with me.

And to all of those who know who you are, adn i shall not list you but trust you know, I love you indescribably, and will endeavour to tell you all personally over the next few weeks. Please dont ever feel that just becasue i ont see you very often, that i dont love you. I do.

11/30/06 06:19 pm - For Michael

Michael was one of my best friends from University. He was one of the few people who understood when i walked away from Christianity and became a pagan. He was on the search himself, alhtough his took him the other way.
Michael was working as a volunteer for the Tong-Len project, supporting children in the slums in India. And now he has gone. All i can do is pray that he has gone to a better place, where he is safe and happy.
Although knowing Mike, he'd probably rather be here, so he could continue to make a difference. He wore this world lightly,m and used everything he had to try to make it better for others. He will be terribly missed.


As I cannot bear to let his life go without it having made a difference to me, and to all the people he had yet to help, I am applying to be avolunteer for the same project. I have sent in a request to be a maths/english teacher for the Tong Len project over the summer holiday.


If you can help, either by aiding the charity, or simply by adding your prayers to the those already ascending, please do.

Others have said it far better than i could. Please visit Alice , Wood , Malcolm for more info and pictures.

I will post more later, when i feel i can.

11/27/06 04:46 pm - i love it!

"Bother," said Pooh, "Eeyore, ready two photon torpedoes and lock phasers on the Heffalump. Piglet, meet me in transporter room three. Christopher Robin, you have the bridge."

also, have found the church i want to start going to, and have also joined the gloucester pagans moot for friday's meeting!

You Are Apple Green

You are almost super-humanly upbeat. You have a very positive energy that surrounds you.
And while you are happy go lucky, you're also charmingly assertive.
You get what you want, even if you have to persuade those against you to see things your way.
Reflective and thoughtful, you know yourself well - and you know that you want out of life.

i was expecting something darker, like hunter green, or forest green, but hey. appples are nice.
