QotD: Can’t Sleep.

What do you tend to worry about in the middle of the night?

Usually whatever I'm worrying about in the middle of the day.  Seriously, I don't tend to have trouble sleeping unless I'm already very preoccupied during the day.

QotD: Birth Order

What is the birth order in your family? Do you think it has an affect on your personality?
Submitted by aynge.

Me, Renata, Rowan.

I have no idea, the only way to test it out would be for me to be born a second time (And I've already done the Christian thing) in a different order than that.

QotD: Sometimes the biggest act of courage is a small one…

What was the bravest thing you did in 2008?
Submitted by TheFiercestCalm.

Mine would have to be making the move to a place where I didn't know anyone at all.  I'm not doing too badly, and soon I'm sure I'll have a great network up here too.  In the meantime, I have Brooke & Matt who are fantastic, but unfortunately don't know anyone up here either, so I don't get to meet new people through them. 

Second in line for first place would be Honours.  I could just as easily have started a job at the end of 2007, but I didn't.  I continued on, and I'm glad I did, I really enjoyed it, even though at times I hated it.

I learnt that taking a chance and making a change is worthwhile, and that knowledge for the sake of knowledge is a fantastic thing.
have a great remainder of 2008, and a happy 2009 everybody!

QotD: Lending a Helping Hand

Have you ever volunteered for something? If so, what?

I've volunteered for heaps of stuff.  Most recent was organising the SoCIS dinner, but if you count my pre-18 involvements I've volunteered as:

  • Online Access Center assistance
  • High School Site Committee member
  • Singer for a number of things
  • Sunday School Teacher
  • Youth Leader
  • Worship Leader
  • Leader of Campus Christian group "ID"
  • I don't know whether I can claim my student enterprise stuff as volunteering.
  • Computer teacher for some Ulysses Motorcycle Club members.

So that was the pre-18 stuff, post-18 I've been a volunteer:

  • on the Working It Out Steering Committee
  • in Fruity Bits
  • organising QSOC functions
  • Christmas Bowl Appeal fundraiser
  • Sheet-music sorter
  • Singer for this and that
  • Counsellor for Working It Out
  • Proofreader
  • Marker
  • Tutor

It looks like my pre-18 stuff was far more religious than my post-18 stuff. 
I think I've made a bigger difference in my post-18 stuff than in my pre-18 stuff.
