Alright so heres the deal.....I may forget something but get ready for a biggie....
I'll start with school....we just got done with out intensives so this Monday I will officially be starting school and I can't wait. I will be finding out what band I am with and what group I will be put into. The intensives were alright, they were crazy long so we just tried to make it through together. It was a lot of basic welcome to college type stuff. For school I have to service jobs...one is being in Choir on Sundays...and the other is in the Library which I still have no idea what I will be doing there. The profs seem very very cool and one I have really grown a liking to his teaching ability.
I got to experience a vision Sunday at Hillsong and it was awesome! They are opening a church in NYC and building some crazy schools in South Africa. Two days later we went to the Hills campus for Vision night which is when Brian gives a much deeper explanation on how everything is going to work. Before that we had school at the Hills campus and got to have a question answer session with Joel which was really cool. It was funny to see how much he is just like us. That night I got to meet Jad Gillies and Ben Fielding which was really cool. A bunch of us were hanging out in front of the stage while Joel was practicing and they walked out so I just decided to go introduce myself. They were both very cool guys and were completely cool with me introducing myself. It's cool to think that I could be playing with these guys at sometime this year and it won't even be a big deal.
I am actually heading to North Beach church (a branch of Hillsong) with a friend to go see Marty Sampson. I'm really excited about this becuase the church isn't very large and we heard you can actually hang out with Marty after services. I really am excited about this because he wrote songs that have had huge influence on my life.
I did get to see the Superbowl!!! they had a huge party for us and we got to see Drew Brees win the MVP......safe to say I was very pleased with the superbowl this year....sorry to all the Colts fans...at least you got there. I have been hanging out with my group of friends almost everyday and I have been meeting new people everyday. Our group is now starting to really feel like a tight knit group and its been great. One of them will be leaving in a couple months so we will definitely miss them.
My favorite beach has now become Bronte beach with Moroubra in a close second.....no worries has slowly come into my vocab since you hear it every second of everyday.....My roommate and I have become very close and seem to go everywhere together which is great...we still have a little UK vs. U.S. every once in a while tho for good measure ;).
Everything is going great I am loving it here even tho I do miss people very much....but I knew that would happen so o well :)......I am starting busking next week so I can't wait to start making some money! I'm sure I will think of something to write later..but for now...LOVE YOU!
