It’s been a while since Youth Assembly and as usual things seem to move along much quicker in life after it. I’m now back at uni and into week 2 studying courses I think I am going to properly love. Whilst it’s a lot of work I am totally loving it so far despite the occasional moan.

I meant to blog properly about Youth Assembly but I’ll see what happens. It was very much a mini journey this year. I was very nervous about a new location, nervous it was going to be different whilst really excited at the same time about the change. I explored different debate topics throughout the weekend. I was challenged. I dealt with some challenges and have left some unsolved for the moment. I moved on whilst leaving some rubbish behind me. I looked forward. I dreamed. I am still dreaming. Throughout the summer I have had this mini train of thought all based around “hope”. The weekend has definitely filled me with that on so many levels. My dreams are bigger that they have ever been, they are forever changing and are being forever driven by this thing we call hope. Some of these dreams just seem too big at the moment. I always seem to have more questions than answers and am forever searching for something bigger whilst not really knowing what that “something” is.

Here is a beautiful song:

“Teach me how to hum it, cause’ I don’t know the words yet…”

field of dreams.

I have now returned from the National Youth Assembly 2009, held in Striling University Campus. I’m exhausted. We’ve been debating, dreaming, reflecting, chatting and rarely sleeping. It was my 5th Youth Assembly and it was very, very different to any other one I had attended in the past. I shall return later after further resting but if you want to see what went on over the weekend, the Youth Assembly blog will be able to fill you in: cosyblog
