I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Home, with direction!?!

Hav­ing got to the end of my 2nd year at uni I now find myself at home for the summer.  Its been an inter­est­ing last term and even more inter­est­ing being back home.  The tran­si­tion from being at uni to being at home is quite strange.  Obvi­ous­ly its nice to see par­ents and friends, but the atti­tudes of my friends here are so dif­fer­ent to uni.  At uni you can have peo­ple around you all the time, they make an effort to see peo­ple and if they say they are gonna do some­thing gen­er­al­ly they do it.  Com­plete con­trast to any­one at home, I have been back since Tues­day seen a few peo­ple arranged to meet up with some and they bail.  The atti­tudes are total­ly dif­fer­ent.
Times like these real­ly make me think.  I know it seems weird, I have known these peo­ple longer than the peo­ple at uni, yet I find myself ques­tion­ing how good a friend they are.  I find myself com­par­ing the two sets of friends, which I know I should­n’t but its very hard not too.  I sup­pose they just make me realise how blessed I have been at uni.  It makes me realise how God has equipped me in life, how he has sup­plied me with the peo­ple I need to sup­port me.  At home I have my par­ents and at uni I have friends who will be there for me.  Obvi­ous­ly my friends here would be as well, but in a dif­fer­ent way.
God has made me so com­fort­able in Chel­tenham and sup­plied me with the peo­ple to help that happen.  It is obvi­ous he put me there for a rea­son and it just leaves me won­der­ing what he else he has in store for me, what his plan for me is after uni, where he wants me to be and what he wants me to do.  All I know is that I will try and do it.  Start­ing with my final year at uni and pass­ing that to glo­ri­fy him a major part of that I feel is with my dis­ser­ta­tion on which I will be blog­ging in the next few days.
