Danica’s ramblings

by Danica

I looked at my blog calendar last night and noticed that I hadn’t blogged in 2 weeks! That’s horrible! So I promised myself I’d make an attempt – even if it’s lousy – at writing a blog today.

I looked at the clock and realised that it was 11:59pm, so I hurriedly logged on to WordPress with (approximately) 30 seconds till midnight, and *drum roll* the permalink remains dated for the 17th! Phew!

Normally, I’d blog about something profound that I had just learnt or some amazing revelation that caused me to reflect on my current situation and make changes to my life. Since the beginning of May, God has taught me a lot of things, many worthy to share with anyone (willing to read my blog). But when I sit down and try to comprehend what I’ve just learnt, or when I try to make some sense out of the million thoughts running through my mind about what I had just learnt, I can’t seem to make it make sense.

It’s like having to do research for an essay, and then finding that there’s a whole lot of books, web pages, articles and other materials that you can get information from, and then realising that you can’t just disregard any of those materials, but you have to somehow find a way to condense (CONDENSE!1) all of that information into a thousand word (or whatever) essay.

Well, I have about a month and a half’s worth of lessons to blog about. It really won’t seem like a month and a half to you, it’s just that I learnt quite a bit during that period of time. God has been constantly knocking at my door, whispering in my ear, conspicuously showing me obscure signs, and speaking to me through the words and actions of the amazing people that I do life with.

I will be back with more bloggings and ramblings and rantings tomorrow, but if not, well it’s not like it’ll matter to anyone ’cause no one reads this thing often enough to care whether I still post or not. In other words, there’s always Friday or the weekend or next week or next month or… yeah.

And now, before I hit the publish button for this thing, let me share something with you that I want to (eventually) learn (and perfect (v.)):

– “Keep moving forward.” – Walt Disney

1 For DAYS I had been trying to think of a particular word that means whatever “condense” means. I looked up combine in the thesaurus, but that just wasn’t the word I was looking for, and neither were the synonyms it suggested. Suddenly, my brain is being flooded with synonyms for “condense”!
