Nature and the Holidays

Thought I'd update my journal to show that I haven't vanished into the unknown. Though I have to say, it is good to update my journal again. I must remember to try and update this more often. Doesn't feel right leaving it for weeks on end.

Well the first week after we broke up I was away on brownie Pack holiday, staying in the village hall of Aldington, near Ashford. Brownies to those who aren't sure what they are is a younger version of Girl Guides (I think in other countries they're called Girl Scouts). The Brownie were all so sweet, although they all had their bad moments. The theme for the entire week was 'Around the World' so each adult was given the name of a country. I ended up with Japan (somehow, didn't really get a choice). The first few days was spent doing crafts indoors, such as decorating folders and making pen tops, as the weather was wet and windy. However towards the end of the week we went out for a short walk to the church. I had to leave the following Saturday early to get to work on time but before I left, the girls gave me a card they'd designed themselves, plus I got a ton of hugs before I left. I guess the only downside to this week was that my sister and her friends, as guides came to help and weren't on their best behaviour.

Didn't do a lot during the second week other than cleaning the house and working extra hours. I also had the second to last Japanese lesson. I'll put my Japanese homework up on the blog at some point as well. I was also thinking of creating a separate blog to upload my Japanese work because I think it may help me study harder on the subject. Plus it might get my butt into gear and get me doing my Japanese homework.

Last week I spent a few days round Tom's house. Ended up watching 'The Omen' (yes Phil you guessed correct, it was me who watched it with Tom). Was a rather good film and not nearly as scary as I thought it would be. (Lev is not a horror person). Though it was played upon, the scary factor that is by the person who suggested watching it. The plot line is very well put together. Plus I really like the 'Devil and god' theme. We also went out into town and for a walk through the woods with Tom's dogs. Just a warning, Lev + woodland/fields and nature= millions of photos and a hyper CG Art student.

Thoughts? Feelings?

There are more but I've tried to cut it down to some of the slightly more interesting photos.

This week I plan on sketching out some ideas for the summer project. I do have some ideas (after listening to the soundtrack on repeat for a couple of hours) but they're all over the place. Need to sketch them down to try and make sense of them.
