It's been a while...

Ok, so I deleted all my posts a while ago- bit of an error, but ah well! A friend of mine has just started up a blog, and it reminded my that I quite enjoyed blogging, until it became a means of major procrastination which was affecting my work, somewhat. Now I'm almost a final year under-grad, I feel I have matured sufficiently to keep a blog and juggle my university work... I like to think so, anyway, although I'm sure all my friends and family will entirely disagree!
This is merely a kind of introductory post, so I wasn't planning to write about anything specific. However, I feel compelled to share three things that are running through my head at the moment...
1) 'Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.' What an amazing truth found in the Bible -- so far this week I've really felt a renewed joy in my relationship with God, and I thank God for that!
2) I love tumblr! (feel free to follow me here) Wikipedia describes tumblr as:
'a microblogging platform that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private. The service emphasizes ease of use.'
So basically, it's blogging without the hard work or pressure of writing something insightful or witty. It's pretty awesome, and so easy to use (Wikipedia does not lie).
3) Persuasion never gets old! I mean, it's a relief I feel that way, as I'm planning to write my dissertation on Austen. But even so, it's just so refreshing to have an older heroine, a bit of sea air (apparently, I said some of my first words 'dig, dig' at Lime Regis) and as ever, Austen's brilliant, satirical narrative. Classic.
