School is nearing its end

I’m in year twelve and the school chapter of my life is rapidly nearing its close. I think I have like four and a half weeks of schooling left and final examinations will hit like a ton of bricks. It’s a strange feeling going around school when I’m doing things that I know are ‘lasts’.

 My last orchestra rehearsal today.

 Last chamber music dinner concert a week ago.

 Last prefect duty.

Although I’m mostly excited to be moving on towards university and the challenges this new chapter of my life will bring me, I’m also filled with trepidation mainly for two reasons.

I’m kind of nervous because finishing school life means VCE exams are coming up and boy do those exams matter for me – they are like springboards into the course that I want to do which is Medicine in an ideal world. I’m going to need to be doing really well in my final exams especially since UMAT was difficult (More on that later)…

I also have no idea of what to expect when school is over. What will I do with all my time? Study literally fills my every waking moment at this stage. When that’s gone will I be lost as to what I should do? 

I hope not.

I also have a Biology SAC tomorrow. That’ll be fun.


First Post!

Finally bit the bullet and made my wordpress account. I’ve wanted to start writing on the net for so long it’s ridiculous – so here goes with a blog! Inspired by a dear cousin – thank you.

I’m nearing the end of my school life! It’s August and VCE final exams are around the corner, music camp is this week and I haven’t started organising it yet. It’s a busy time. Busyness. That’s going to have to be a whole post for another time. But I’ll be posting intermittently until school is over. I’m looking forward to that day like no other.

But introductions first: I’m a Christian guy in a world of secular influence and activities. My struggle is real and it’s difficult – there’s no doubt about that. Jesus said that we must live in the world but not be of it and that can be harder than I first imagined. Especially in a society that is more and more hostile to the idea of faith except for a select few. And that’s not to mention the temptations of going against what I believe and doing things that I later regret. But that’s the Christian life and it’s a journey – a progression. My life goal is to find out what God has in store for me and to follow His path.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to be a person who truly is in line with God’s heart to the point that our desires match His? Bam. Bye temptations.
