The End

>> Thursday, April 8, 2010

Well here we are... a whole year and 213 blogs later, and I can't really believe it to be honest.  I had these grand plans to have this beautiful reflective piece for my final blog on 22adventures, something that looked over everything and talked about how far I had come and what happens next.  But the truth is, I don't really know if I can write that at the moment, because I am sitting on the floor at a Big Band rehearsal, feeling very tired and sick.  My nose is running and my head is stuffy and I am just not sure what will come out as I continue to type.  However, the fact is, today is the 8th of April 2010, which means tomorrow I turn 23 and the adventures of me as a 22 year old come to an end.  So whether I feel like it or not, I need to write something to tie it all together.

I find it really hard to believe that exactly a year ago I had an interview in Castlemaine, and getting a job, moving out of home, moving to the country was just a little idea that I wasn't really considering because I didn't want to jinks the job.  Yet here I am writing this blog, a year later and everything, and nothing at all has changed (if that makes any sense).  

There are lots of things that are still the same.  I am still Emma, I still love Disney, blogging, eating and Dave, but now I live in Castlemaine and visit Melbourne.  Now I have a 'real' full time job, not a part time fun thing.  Now I can cook and clean and do general adult things, because I have to and no one else will do it for me (unless they are feeling particularly generous).  Now I have lots of new friends, people who I hadn't even met a year ago today.   

I feel like I have grown a lot since I moved to Castlemaine, and I am not really sure how much of this is just me getting older and how much of this has been because of the fact that I had too.  There have been some really low times, like homesickness, being lonely and getting used to being away from all my friends and family, but there has also been a lot of fun stuff to, and some really really great stuff... my new friends, the things I have seen and the places I have been...oh that rhymed, nice.  I have no idea how to actually sum up this last year other than the fact that I am different and I like it.  I know that I haven't done this by myself and that I my life really has been in God's hands through it all. But I guess when it comes down to it... I am really glad I went to the interview, I am really glad I was offered the job and I had enough courage (and support) to move and give it a crack.  I am also really glad that I have been able to share this with all of you (even if its just Mum, Dad and Dave at times).  Thanks a bunch for reading... my blog would be no fun if no one read it, so thanks for dropping by!  

So what happens next... well I am glad that you asked.  For now, I stay in Castlemaine, and because I can't give up I will continue to blog.  But as I am no longer 22 my blogs will have a new home:, so please keep dropping by and checking it out.  But after that I am not really sure and that's ok.  I still have plenty of adventures left in me and I am kind of excited about what is still to come... I guess I will just have to keep to posted, because I guess that's just all part of the adventure!

The Tale of Eggface

>> Monday, April 5, 2010

So this year I got one of the coolest eggs was a do it yourself egg face! And while it didn't quite go according to plan the tale went a little like this...

Once there was a girl named Emma, who was given a very special Easter egg...

The egg required her to decorate her it with its very own eggy face.  So she got all the pieces out... and began to make a plan!

She started with the legs to make some stability.  It appeared she used too much glue so her eggface had a little accident.  Next was the hair.  As she stopped to admire her work so far she thought to herself "so far, so good."

However, having not held onto it quite enough to let it set the hair began to slide...and came to rest in another, appropriate, but not quite what she had in mind place...

Having corrected the hair and becoming more and more aware that the glue was not all that sticky, she quickly attempted to do the lot and then take a picture before anymore unwanted shifts. 

Once the portrait was complete she let go, and eggface had an accident.

Eggface was beyond the point of no return, and unfortunately soon after his fall, he deteriorated and passed away. 

The End.

So there you have it, the tale of Eggface, the best Easter egg ever... now if you will excuse me I have an egg to eat.

I guess that's just all part of the adventure!

So I guess its that time again...Easter time that is... We made it through Friday and today we can celebrate because He is Risen.  And because I don't have any awesome words of wisdom to share with you about what Easter means, once again I am going to steal my words (lucky he did die, for my sins!) from songs are two songs, that I love that I think sum up why I love easter...maybe even more than I love Christmas!
Jesus, can You show me just how far the east is from the west
'cause I can't bear to see the man I've been come rising up in me again. 
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other

My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

Oh and I was also very thankful for my extra hour of sleep last night, thank you and so long daylight savings...

I guess that's just all part of the adventure!


April Fool

>> Thursday, April 1, 2010

April Fools Days is something that I have long enjoyed but never really participated in.  The truth is, I am just not clever enough to pull off an April Fool, well a good April Fool.  Anyway, I am not sure if this even counts as an April Fool, but yesterday I enjoyed some silliness from my friends at Google.  I don't know if anyone else saw this or not, but Google Maps went a little ocker.  When putting some directions into the Google Maps app in my iPhone (after some encouragement from Davo) I was very shocked to find that Google Maps had started to talk like me.  I am a little disappointed that it was only for a limited time, because I definitely there is a strong market for a GPS with some spunk!  I would buy one anyway.  But enough chat... it will make more sense if I just show you, here is some pictures of the instructions from Castlemaine to Melbourne...
 I guess that's just all part of the adventure!
