1 Month

Today marks a month of my travels. Just though you all would like to know. This means that I have around 3 and 1/2 months left abroad. I am complete unsure whether to feel happy, sad, upset, or excited about this. I just know it is.

As for adventures I really have nothing much to report. If you are interested in a boring recap of my weekend, here you go. I wouldn't read it.

I spent the weekend hanging around and reading. I am currently reading Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (in english of course), and I am finding it very profound and entertaining. It is an excellent story that poses several hard questions like "What is justice?", "What does it mean to love my neighbor?", and "What is right?" It's really good. I haven't seen the movie or the musical, so don't ruin the plot for me.

I also went to Bondi Beach again to see some of the Boost Mobile Surfsho. It was cool, but a surf competition isn't as exciting as I thought it would be. Its repetitive. However, I still find surfing engrossing.

After the surf competition, I took a four mile hike along the coast from Bondi to Coogee. It was beautiful. The coast here is mainly cliffs with scattered beaches, so it feels a world apart from SC beach country. The beaches are also packed with people. Here's some pictures from the hike:

Right now I am just kind of busy. I have a good bit of school work (lots of reading, at least for a Math major) and lots of trip planning that I need to get done before everything gets full or way more expensive. Hopefully everything works out and I get to go to New Zealand over Easter Break.

Here's a passage of scripture I have been thinking of a lot lately.

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
-John 4: 13-14

Jesus seems to promise that our thirst will be filled through him, yet I can't say that I see this promise truly coming to completion in the here and now. This is something that I am trying to unpack.
