kate5kiwis: global announcement


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Big, big congratulations (from someone in their final year of a part time degree). Being a "mature student" (aside from a contextual inaccuracy) is fun.

Funny, I thought I had already left a comment here but I get confused - that was on Facebook, wasn't it?

You know your last line kept coming back to me after I read it - all day. I'm so happy for you. I love my life too at the moment. Amazing really!

Oh - and we had snow today!!! How fab is that.

Wow Kate... that is so cool. I love it when little steps of faith come together in one moment, like a good school interview or an envelope in the post, and everything CLICKS!

I still dont know what I am doing next year, but seeing you take yours with both hands sure is an inspiration, and makes me thing BIG! xx

hello beautiful people!
thanks so much for all the love, i am so relieved that this "limbo" feeling is All Over, Rover and we can now enjoy the summer and last few months of our homeschooling buzz and transition to Student Lifestyle (the whole kate5kiwis gang will be students in 2009!)

although i suspect - all mummies are homeschoolers at heart.
well, i am. let's see how that translates to the classroom.
BOO YAH!!!!!

Hey that is THE BEST news and yes, you definitely need some student-type sandals. Are you really sure you want to do this? I've just spent my whole weekend writing reports and yelling at people to bring me more coffee, bring me more food and now my eyes are whirling like in a cartoon...

2009 is going to be such fun for you guys. Quite jealous really - I love university.
