Hard work

Well, I'm back in rainy old Luton again. I'm glad to be here really. I've done most of my work and I just need to hand it in and do a presentation.

I can't really believe I've only a week and a half til Easter, it seemed so far off but now I'm making arrangements to move back to Essex for 3 weeks and see every one. Something, as you can tell, I'm not looking forward to. I'm really gonna miss Luton and all the people, although a couple of the most important are following me when I go on a Youth work Holiday, and my bestest mate is coming to see me, but don't tell my parents as I haven't asked them yet!! So Luton, much like Essex really is evert where!

Argh!!! So I traveled all the way home to Essex, being the good daughter, to babysit my little brothers and there is no way I can be a mother. They just completely ignored me and expected me to do something close to being their slave. I dunno how my mother copes. The second I got in after a hour and a half drive, the littlest one wanted a lift to his girlfriends and picking up. I know that everyone says this, but I will never let my kids run over me like that. It is totally possible to balance discipline and Love, God does it everyday. Ok, so he is God, and we're all only human, but if you love someone surly that's what you'd do.

Well, I'm back in Essex for the weekend and already madly missing Luton and the things in it, especially the people. It's so hard to realise that there is actually a life outside your own, and it moves on regardless of you most of the time. I miss the Luton people so much right now because I'm so close to them. I can't ever have imagined staying in the same place for the whole of my life, I'd be missing so many opportunities. I'm so happy that I'm missing everyone, as weird as it sounds. God put me in Luton with out a shadow of a doubt and I can be happy I'm missing it because of that. I know I'll be right back in the thick of it in a couple of days time, I just have to see the Essex people first.

I have to tell you the last week has been absolutely amazing, I've really grown close to a couple of people, but it feels so strange to have those people interested in me because of me, and not the other way round, or with ulterior motives. I love it so much. Praise God for all he has done in my life and all the lives surrounding me.

Ha ha!! I'm on, can you believe it? Well, I think that I'll won't mind if this gets seen, but hey you never know. There will always be some one who is reading over your shoulder, especially if your only Internet access is from the uni you moved to just 18 months ago. Which really explains the title of this. I moved from Essex to bedfordshire and I now know the similarities and differences of the world at large. Most people would suggest that both places are rubbish and they don't out weigh each other on the rubbish scale, but I, of course would have to disagree. I love both places with all my heart. The Essex in me cries out that my current place, (oh, I'll give it away, seeing as you'll guess anyway) Luton, isn't all that bad and in many cases it can be better than Essex. My job means that I promote my Uni, and I find myself being openly honest about what I really think. Luton and Essex are really excellent. I know loads of people in both places and I wouldn't exchange the time I've had for the world. Well thats the start... where will it finish?
