(noun) any of a series of 7-day cycles used in various calendars
Sunday was a pretty good day except it was really hot. 41 celsius or 106 farenheit. It only goes above 40 a few times each year if we are unlucky and it doesn’t usually happen as early as December. My grandparents live about 5 minutes from us and they have this drain out the front and because it is drying up the fish are all concentrated in one part that’s only about 40 centimetres deep at the most. So my sister and I went around there with buckets and tried to catch the carp, which is basically a pest fish. Some of them were pretty big. There were also some goldfish. It was quite fun. The heat and the water and the fish and my sister. I need to have fun more often. Then I went down to my new home townish and that was okay. I tried out another church, which is the church one of my housemates goes to, it was better then last weeks one. It was really short like a 45 minute service.
I don’t really get Christians who get drunk and swear and smoke. Two of those things are debated in some quarters as to whether they’re wrong or not. But I don’t get it basically cause my ‘cultural background’ if you like all those things were frowned upon. And these are Christians who teach Sunday school, lead worship and even get to preach. And then I think of myself who has done all those things (teach, lead, preach – not the other three) and my masturbating and looking at porn, I know these things are wrong and I think maybe what I’m doing will appear as silly to someone else.
I still want to move. The people I’m staying with probably want me to move too. I overheard them a few times saying non-positive things about me. It wasn’t really anything personal or unexpected, so while it disappointed me to hear it, it wasn’t really that bad. Going there was a risk, which I knew could possibly turn out bad, so I’m not too fussed about it in that sense. But I still need to find another place to go to and there isn’t any other better offers on the table at the moment. I’ll advertise again in mid-January after the Christmas break when perhaps there is some action happening.
I didn’t really think about my struggle against same-sex attraction much this week. It hasn’t really been on the fore front of my mind. I went Christmas shopping today and damn there were lots of hot guys. So it basically sucked, but one thing I did notice is that there aren’t really that many hot guys to distract from the cause in town, which I guess presents me with an opportunity to strengthen myself when there is less temptation around.
