Just listening to Radio 4 while I work on my thesis (this research is turning me elderly!) and there's a fascinating debate on faith schools and whether Jewish schools only allowing children of Jewish mothers and Catholic schools who only accept students who were baptised in the first weeks of their life are discrinimitory practices and should be removed.

Brings uop interesting questions about who we are and whether we should be who our roots and family define us as or stand in our own right, and if the latter should be as respected as some pre-determined right to faith or race...the added legal factor just adds to it!

I have Jewish, Catholic and strong athiest beliefs within my family and I have been very lucky to have been allowed to decide for myself which route I will follow...I'd count myself as athiest like my parents but having the choice has made me more open minded to other peoples choices, even if I can't empathise their passion and dedication to their faith.

So are you defined by your religious roots or have you gone against them? I don't personally agree with faith schools either - I think religion is such a definitive part of who you are and how you live it shouldnt be dictated to you from an age where you'd believe mice ran Parliament if someone told you it earnestly enough....anyway thought I'd see what anyone else thought?

I have an interview! For a real, post-graduation job! *terror*

On the up side I did manage to get a pencil dress, shirt, belt and necklace to wear all for £20 at Primark! Gotta love that shop! I'm incredibly nervous...had to pass a maths and verbal reasoning test before even getting selected for interview! Tough cookie of a job for one of the big financial companies in Bristol! Anyone have any interview tips?!?!

Sorting through christmas cards and decorations at work to store away until November...has got me all festive!!

Just sat on lunch break debating on whether to invest in a whole bottle of coffee syrup from Nero...then I really will replace food with COFFEE yum :D

Muse tomorrow! Get into Teignmouth for 11.20am and ibet there's still a massive queue when I get there argh! Earliest train I could find...I left the travel buying til the last minute oops :s

At work...and very bored...so far my time has been spent positioning the magnetic angel xmas decorations in provocative places on the metal santas...oh and making the novice mistake of applying lip gloss then eating a biscuit ending up in apple-crumble lips.


:)

Oh and this is. From my rather strictly-business-chic new blackberry.


Over n out.

This journal is for life stuffs more than writing, although the latter may feature somewhere along the way.
