Sadly I was supposed to be arriving in London today, but alas it is not to be. Which I guess is a good thing then that I am not on my way. Zac, Heather, and I were not able to raise enough money in time and so have decided to put what we already raised towards the next DTS (which isn’t till April). I am thinking that maybe I can go to Perth or something instead but I am undecided. It is kinda disheartening to be so excited about something and then no be able to go. Oh well though, that just means that there is something else I shall be doing for the next few months that I need to no be over there for :D.
Am trying to decided if I should get back into school or not since I am here now… Oh decisions decisions. Hehe 4 years ago
Yesterday I sent off the rest of the applications, all the forms references and everything. It was an outrageous price to send ($52.00), but it should be there by Friday and we will all be one step closer to going on this DTS :)
Today, I must admit that my optimism toward actually being able to go on this trip is very low… My family all thinks it is not going to happen (except for Zac of course) and all the negativity starts to get to a person on a bad day, even when you try to stay focused. Blah! Why can’t people ever just let a person dream and go for things that are slightly out of reach. If it is where God is guiding, he will provide :D. If not, well then I shall know and will head in another direction. There is no point in not doing it just because everyone else has no faith.
We still have a lot of money to raise, that is true and we are supposed to be leaving in just over 3 weeks. The outlook is somewhat bleak. But at the same time there is still a couple of weeks to gather money :). It is a glass half full/half empty kinda situation. You just have to choose which way you are going to look at it and I choose half full.
One cool thing is that we have alway had just enough money for each step that we have come across. Unexpected doctors visits, application fee, postage, .... Never more, never less. To me that is at least a good sign, because it means that the door is not closed and until it closes on me I shall continue through to see where it leads. 4 years ago
So yesterday I took a jump (though it actually was not as big as I thought it would be) and filled out the online application for the DTS I am hoping to go to. And my goal is to have the rest of the application mailed off within a few days. How exciting! 4 years ago
