To boldly go…

August 31, 2010 2 comments

Hello blog.

I have not blogged in a LONG time. I have been on holiday from university and took that as an opportunity to take an actual holiday from most things, including social media- well some of it.

Anyway, I appear to be back.

This Friday I am going to the National Youth Assembly 2010- To Boldly Go…
This shall be my 6th (!) Youth Assembly. I am old.

I think I write about it most years, so I shall keep it short.

You can follow all the goings on in the blog world via…this link
Also people will be twittering under the hashtag #nya2010 or the user @cosy_nya

I’m hoping for good debates. I’m hoping that people will speak and share their stories, their views. I’m hoping people will feel included. I’m hoping for fun. I’m hoping people will meet God.

This song speaks these hopes I think…
People have names, people have voices.

“All roads lead to Rome”

As I mentioned previously, I was in Rome on the 12th-15th March with the Church of Scotland. Rome is an amazing city and has so much history. A weekend really wasn’t long enough-I definitely want to go back for a longer period of time and learn more. I took a lot of photos. A lot of them were not very good but I shall put a small number of them here. I have had to make them quite a bit smaller so they fit better on here. The thing with taking pictures in Rome is I am not sure any picture can really do it justice. Everything is so big, which is perhaps an odd thing to say, and beautiful. I was going to talk more about the weekend but I have an essay to write about insurance policies which is definitely less exciting but sadly must be done. Ah well.

St Peter’s Square…

Looking up into the dome…

The colosseum (HUGE)…

Squeezing my camera lens through the fencing whilst on our way to the top of the dome…

Reaching the top of the dome 500+ steps later for an amazing view of Roma…

We went on a tour bus. There were people hanging about in togas, presumably with a purpose but it was not clear…

This is what dreams are made of.

I am going to Rome on Friday with COSY (Church of Scotland Youth) for the weekend. I am so very excited! I am using this as an excuse to watch the Lizzie McGuire Movie whilst attempting to write the essay that is due in the day I come back from Rome. Going to be my earliest hand-in on record! The film is ridiculous but it IS set in Rome and it looks pretty. Excitement level= eeeeeeeeeeyyaaaaah. Yep.

Anyway, I shall write all about it when I come back.

“Hey now, hey now, this is what dreams are made of…”

On another COSY note. The cosyblog is back and there is youth assembly 2010 chat so you should go and have a look! 🙂
