Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?
It was honestly kind of 50/50, primary school I was bullied n Year 6, but the other years everything were pretty smooth. I never really had any problems except for that one year, it didn’t really help not having any friends in my class either. I did try to swap but for some reason they just wouldn’t let me. I did have one guy in the class who was a year older than me who didn’t necessarily speak up for me, but he me made laugh in front of the whole class…I think so it’d help me to stop crying.
High School, I didn’t experience any bullying. I think the bullying in Primary School helped me to become the soft spoken person I am today. So mainly I don’t think a lot of people noticed me and my best friend was always the life of the party. I did the listening, she did the talking and it worked for us. However I did suffer from Dyslexia, but NONE of the teachers even cared or recognised it. Until I was in year 12…the final year of High School in Australia…and then my Classical Studies teacher noticed something. I did some brain exercises and I became MUCH better. It still does to this day freaking annoy me that all the others teachers would write the same comments over and over and over again, but it just never cared enough to click. I would have the same ideas as the A+ students, but I would get C’s because of my grammar or my sentence structure.
So I wouldn’t say School was the most horrible thing that ever happened to me and just thank goodness social media wasn’t around when I was a kid and a teenager.
List some of your favorite types of animals.
This may or may not be longest list you’ll ever see! =P lol … It’s probably easier to just list the ones I really don’t like:
I don’t like mosquito or maggots or flies or any “pest” like that. They are just plain gross!
I also do not like Crocodiles or Alligators. This is mainly because all other “big” predators, tend to make the death as painless as possible. This is mainly an evolutionary thing though, if the animal is fussing or fighting, the predator can get hurt just as badly. Crocs and Alli’s tend to almost torture their meals. Watching the cams after safarilive, I have witnessed (kind of…I thought it was so sadistic I stopped watching). Two days a bigger alligator attacked a smaller one…Two days this went on for. We thought the little one was dead after a day, but it wasn’t. It was still alive! It’s tail was gone and half of it’s top snout and I think a foot or two were missing too. During the day it lay on the bank, while the bigger one stayed in the water. I was literally crying for it. I’ll never forget that.
I also dislike Octopuses, they are waaaaaaay to smart and they can get through the smallest of tubes and pipes.
What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?
My brother lives in Melbourne and about once a year I go up and visit him. I really like Melbourne, it’s busy, but not over horribly busy like Sydney can be. The shopping in Melbourne is also fantastic! There is such variety there as well and although Melbourne apparently has the worse public transport in Australia, I do not believe this at all! It seems fantastic to me. All those complaining about Melbourne’s transport systems really needs to live in Adelaide for a week.
