The "mini sabbatical" is over...
My 1 month (ish) sabbatical is over. My dissertaion is submitted. Now I just have to see if it was any good...will probably post more on my thinking/conclusions another time.
It was nice having some clear time to put into it.
Meanwhile back to work!

On Saturday we had a "forum" day related to "Bite the Bullet", to make space to listen to young people and try and get a "top 5" issues they face, especially with violent crime as the background noise. We ended up with a top 6 issues : Consumerism & money, peer pressure, identity, fear, respect & power, the double standards of the wider (adult) world. The standard "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" along with gang stuff seemed to the group to be symptoms of these underlying issues. Was an interesting day!
