    Some, Hard Earned, Good News!!

    Hey all,

    It's been just over one month since I have been on LEF, been real busy studying for exams, and thank God, there over!

    Anyway, about 1 week ago I received some fantastic news!

    I went out to the letterbox and there was a letter, I was thinking to myself, hmm, a letter for me? Then I saw the logo on the back, Criminal Justice Department!!

    I ran inside, my heart was rushing, and I knew this is where the penny drops, is it a course offer or a thank-you for applying letter?

    I ripped it open, and to my delight, there is a Congratz on the top line!!

    I kept reading to discover, I was offered an Early Round Offer for the Criminal Justice course I applied for!!

    YES, it beats waiting for a first round offer, when you are already in!

    I gave my mum & dad a call, and they were both thrilled. I let everyone I know, know!

    I went through a one hour interview for this course, as well as a two hour test, which involved breaking down a murder case, (which incurred me writing 8 pages of information)English skills, Maths, and Vocab.

    I turned up to the campus to enroll.
    I had a talk with the Course Head, he congratz me and was very friendly; I was told that out of 700 applications, I was one of the 40 people chosen for the course, and I should feel proud.

    So I have paid all the fees!! The course is $3,500 for the first year, but thanks to the Australian Government and my Health care card, it brought the fees down to $311 So a two year course at the value of $7,000 I will receive for $622, including the second year, after I pass the first year.

    So now I am all set!!

    I start my full-time Criminal Justice course on the 11th of Feb, 2008, and I can't wait!!

    Over the past 3 - 4 months, I have really changed my thoughts on where I want to go within the Victoria Police, and compared to my old thought patterns and why I wanted to do do's, within the Victoria Police, has changed.

    I now think about what I want out of this and what would make me happy, and not what my mates think, and who have always edged me on to this one subject (At the time I 100% Agreed) ...Yes some may say it was a fake certain, doing what other wanted, or what sounded good, but at the time, it really did make sense in my head.

    I have come to relise, I want to help people, just as I always have, and save lives, not harm people, SOG, it's not my thing.

    I have already started studying the Victoria legal system, and have put applying for the Victoria Police off for another year.

    I am now going to do what I have always wanted to do; it was always in my head. thinking about it, but I kept putting it off with a Really? You Sure?

    3 - 4 months Thought.
    It will take me many years to accomplish this.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion
