So, it’s 2013.
And last year I went to India. Last year. LAST YEAR.
Sounds weird doesn’t it?
And yet soon, the holidays will end, we’ll all get back to our normal everyday lives and forget the amazing things that can happen.
But I want you to remember, that even though we’re “normal” *cough*, you and I are capable of doing amazing things for amazing people.
I hope you all had a good Christmas and a happy new year!
So, it’s Sunday night…. we go to India Tuesday afternoon….. i’m not panicking..(much)…
Soon to be Daddy, Robert Short, asked me to write you guys a blog to say how I am feeling concerning going to India in about a days time. I’m going to be honest, I haven’t been that excited about it recently. I think because it’s such a daunting task and I haven’t had much time to actually sit and think about what I have signed up to do. However today and yesterday whilst packing I have felt pretty amazing about going, and the support given by people from church and the Chennai group has been great.
So my concerns now (of course I still have concerns-this is me we’re talking about) :
The flight- considering I’ve never flown before, i’m pretty scared. To anyone who is sitting by me,stranger or not, I shall be holding your hand for the take-off, i promise you that!
The boys- I hope the boys like me, because I can’t wait to go to Yelagiri with them and play lots of games!
Overall, i’m feeling pretty good about the experience, and I defiantly have no regrets for signing up!
I hope we have a great time together and make a difference out there!
This may be the last time I blog from my home, but you haven’t heard the last of me!
Thought it was time for another blog.. so here, have one
Honestly lately I have hardly thought about going to India with such things as exam in the way. But now they’re over (WOOP!), it’s time to start thinking seriously. I’m still worried about money, as it’s not all there, but i’m still thinking of how to get some. Earlier this month Mary, Emma and I raised plenty just by selling jacket potatoes, it was a great day
Me and Suzanne have been doing cake sales at church which is helping steadily raise money, while spending my Saturdays making yummy treats! Also, a couple of months ago I held a concert at school, many bands played for us and overall was a great evening!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed me informing you on what I’ve been doing recently to try and raise money!
Thank you. (2nd blog was a success me thinks)
I’m Megan and this is my blog about Chennai Challenge (hopefully if it has worked)!
My first thought is that I’m so excited, and I cannot wait. However, when I think about it properly I become quite scared and freaked out. Having to raise £1400 and travelling thousands of miles to help orphaned boys in slum conditions. It feels unrealistic, like it’s a dream. But it’s true and I can’t wait!
The team meetings are awesome and I’m loving the team for this year. Going to London was great, the weekend made me think more realistically towards the commitment I have made for August. But it also gave me great confidence because I was reassured and stopped me worrying (a little).
Over the weekend we learned a little bit of Tamil which was really fun, although I only remember a little. We also learned how to dressing in a sari, but I wasn’t very good at that unfortunately. We also did some important things to, such as malteser games… ;D
Overall I loved the weekend and I’m so glad I’ve signed up to go.
Thank you for reading my first blog!
