The young people of St Hugh's got a chance to share their experience and skills on Friday night, when they launched the fundraising for their trip to Uganda.

I'll put some pictures up soon...

The week has been a very busy one. Starting last Saturday, I had four visitors from Essex. We all sat and had dinner, discussing the finer points of a few things.
Sunday 'Life in all it's fullness' started... Good stuff.
So finally I'm back in to some sort of routine. Easter isn't that far off, and with Pancake day only a week and a half away the routine will be disrupted already.

Unleashing the Philosopher

Everybody has the ability to ask questions... and (according to the lecturers) there is no definitive answer to those questions.

Even the most simple of questions can be subject to extremist realitivism (or not extreme, depending on which realitivist you talk to).

I've been on the MA at Leicester for 3 months and we are already digging deep to find the philosopher within, finding answers that only bring up more questions.

Hard and scary stuff.

Thinking out loud is a must... no internalising here.

Possible dissertation question too, very exciting!

No longer

I think I suffer from 'Monday morning blues' at about 2pm on Sunday afternoon, this is not good.

The first Monday of the year is about to be over and it's been a productive one. I had quite a strange and drawn out weekend which could contribute to the fact that I just didin't want to go in to the office this morning.

Andy turned 21 on Saturday, so I was back in Essex for lunch and catching up with Andy's extended family. Was good to sit around a big table and chat for hours. Had an interesting discussion, involving everyone around the table, about where 'home' is. One of the less fun things about growing up, 'home' has changed for me. 'Home' is no longer Billericay. Andy and his friends are spending a few days in Kent to celebrate (strange boy).

Things are pretty much back to normal now, there have been a few hiccups, but nothing too big.

All I can say is roll on next tuesday, the FA Cup replay between Luton and Liverpool should be an exciting match to see.

Back to work

Happy new year! And back to work for nearly everyone. If you are still off, lucky you!

The new year brings change beyond recognition... Christine is leaving Luton to go and do a YWAM DTS. Very sad, but she'll only be in Harpenden and it's her birthday in 3 weeks, so she's not getting away that easily.

Working on a really hard essay atm, but it's only hard because it's the first one and it's not really academic, more reflective. Argh. I guess I should get started.

God bless as 2008 begins...
