I’ve known that I’ve had dyslexia for years, but I have learn how to cope and used my “tools” to make me speak English proper =P
I was lucky. I went through the whole of high school feeling extremely stupid and dumb, I could never understand how I had the same ideas as my A+ friends and I was getting by on C’s. I was largely ignored by teachers and my projects/assignments would all say the same things (great ideas, sentence structure wrong). I believe this was because my year had a large amount of students who were incredibly smart.
It wasn’t until I entered my final year of High School that I finally had a teacher who recognised that there was something about the way I structured my sentences, that were just “off”. So he sat with myself and my project and it was the first class and the only high school class I was to have where I would get an “A”.
There was an article recently on Facebook about grammar and how well could you score at this test. There was this woman who thought it was alright to put down people who have ESL (English as a Second Language) who didn’t get full marks….And she’s a teacher…supposedly…Oh the flashbacks! I was SO angry with this woman. Who is she to judge people? She doesn’t know and to call them an “idiot” just because she teaches English as a Second Language. She is the kind of teacher that would have just ignored me and let me struggle through high school.
Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?
School was easy for me for years and then Year 6 happened and that was the first year I was ever bullied. This was luckily before cyber bullying was a “thing”, but it was still horrible. I had never had anything horrible to me before and it was a shock to my system.
What is your favorite animal?
Oh my goodness, I have a few favourites. I would have to say that overall my favourite would have to be Lions/Lionesses (you should see my room, I have more Lion things that comic/nerdy things. I have a whole “Pride” all brought from this company Schleich).
After watching the safari drive for months now, I have a few other “favourites”:
- Kudu (they are so pretty!)
If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?
Honestly it depends, there are some pretty cool looking glasses and contacts out there. It would depend on my mood,lol. Ultimately if I HAD to choose I would go with the contacts, mainly because everyone I know who has glasses seem to lose them a lot! They can become very expensive after awhile,lol
