The better part of the weekend at Grans

I have learnt to appreciate a LOT with my weekend at my Grans.

Anyway, apart from that and after the horrible first day. The next few days were alright. Mainly because, and I don’t know why we didn’t think of it before. We wrote notes to my Gran, letting her know where I was sleeping, the dates that I’m here too and the days and dates that my Aunt and my Mum were going to be here too.

I felt HORRIBLE that first day, and I think that I upset the routine, and I never truly recovered from that day, for the rest of the week. My stomach hurt the whole time, which is a tad annoying when your family lives near a beach town. I had all these plans, and they went “poof”.

However, I LEARNT a lot.

My Gran was probably the most influential person in my life, I learnt my Reiki and Tarot cards from her. She was a library manager, and surrounded all her grand children with books and plays and musicals. On my Mums side in particular, we have a pretty amazing family. We’re all different, but we get on really well. Like I would say my Mum’s family are probably my best friends.

So seeing my Gran just make up story after story. Which I don’t even know if you can say that, because to her, it’s the truth. She’s not “lying”, because in her mind, that all actually happened. Which is what makes going out in public, really awkward sometimes. Because she’s a local, living in a small town, and if you knew her, but not as well as her family does, you’d think nothing was wrong, she is still very articulate. She was introducing me as her grand daughter (correct), but saying to people that I had flown over. Which I have lived in this state my whole life, but also in Australia, most of the borders are closed to other states, because of COVID.

What I learnt over the past few days is just how important family is. Especially when one member is really ill. My Gran gave so much too her community, and between my Aunt, mother and I, we’re the only ones who really communicate with her. We all have a story of a “life long friend or family friend” ring her up, only to discover when we are there, they hang up. Not to be heard from again. Which has made me angry, because a LOT, if not all of her friends are now friends with each other BECAUSE OF HER.

I just hope they’re not treated the same way.

So, sorry about the story, haha. What I learnt is probably the best lesson my Gran has actually been trying to teach me my whole life “Don’t waste time. Live Your Life, and as long as it doesn’t harm you or others, life threateningly … Just Do It!”

A bit of a tizzle

I am in a bit of a tizzle today and I am not really sure what to do.

My partner cat had a seizure last night and while we rushed him to the Vets and he recovered really well. This is the second this has happened and I feel helpless because there’s really not much that we can do.

The first time it happened we actually thought he was choking on something, but now we’re wondering if he was having a fit, and if he was, that means it was his first one ever, in his life.     ….    Do NOT go and watch videos of animals having seizures, it is extremely upsetting!

We’re going to to the Vets this week to get some blood tests done. It should both exclude and include what may be wrong…We are pretty sure that it is epilepsy. Rather know for certain though. Apparently the medication for it, once he’s on it he has to stay on it…So we need to cross out everything else.

I hate how we can’t communicate with animals, and them with us…I HATE it.

He’s been sleeping all day, but every time I get up he goes running to the door and he wants milk and he can’t have either. Does anyone else have experience with this?

A good Education

25. Education 

I do feel very fortunate that I was able to get a good education through the Public School system. I was very lucky with one teacher in particular, VERY lucky. If it hadn’t have been for him I would have never have realised that I suffered from Dyslexia.

I should start from the beginning…

Although I was lucky with the schools that I got into, the teachers weren’t exactly the best kind. They had their favourite smart students and pretty much the rest of us, were sort of ignored. I would get the same remarks over and over and over again, great ideas, your sentence structure is all mixed, even my English teacher made these remarks and she still did nothing. Why worry, when you’ve got the first group of really smart students in the same group. These students were the first group of “special students” who were ‘smarter than your average bear’.

It was SUCH a frustrating experience, I’d have the exact same ideas as my A+ friends, but something was always wrong with my “sentence structure”. My teachers just had their favourites, even my Drama teacher. He said for the big play he was going to let us audition and get in a real life experience. Then when we came back from holidays, he just gave the parts out…To the people we all know he was going too, and I got a walk on part.

Who knows…Maybe if I had an actual positive experience, where I would have gone? Even know I still think…Maybe I should do something…

UNTIL!

I started studying Classical Studies (Ancient Histories) and I was getting the same comments. However, my teacher actually pulled me aside and said that every major project he wanted to see me one-on-one. I had great ideas, but my sentence structure was all wrong. So I started to see him one-on-one before handing in my projects…Guess What…I got all A’s and B’s for that class…Amazing! It made me love Ancient History, it made me love learning and I felt less stupid…Which was probably the most rewarding things of the whole experience.

 

Happy Anniversary WordPress!

I got a nice little notification today…

anniversary-2x

It’s been two years today since I made my very first post on WordPress…I cannot believe it! I have never stuck to anything like this for a month, let alone TWO YEARS!

So what was my very first Blog?

https://lolsyslibrary.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/dropbox-app-android/

 Yep…All about dropbox’s app on Android. I don’t know how many of my readers are aware, but I actually started to use WordPress/Blogging as a school subject for social media studies.

So here’s to you WordPress and all of my readers! Thank you for the good times and for helping me get through some really rough days. I don’t think that I’ve really had a horrible experience on here. You have introduced me to new experiences and new people…I love you for it! Here’s to more Blogging!

New Years!

Another end of the year and I am sure that there will be thousands of posts today about today and all the resolutions.

I know people are waiting for some emo post (especially on my Facebook page) but I just want to say I don’t really have anything to complain about this year. Sure it’s not all been amazing and I was disappointed a lot, but most of it has been…“The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant” That’s my theme for this year. I got rid of a lot of toxic things, people and the way I think. I have had so much fun and when the good things have happened, they have been uh-mazing! I have great family, amazing friends and I am particularly proud of myself too, I have accomplished a lot personally =D

What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before?

I swam with dolphins, I still can’t get over surreal that whole experience was! Amazing! I walked Mt Lofty and lived to tell the tale! (I did do it when I was younger, but I barely remember it). I changed my hair a different colour and it now it’s turned into this fabulous colour that I have actually always wanted my hair to be. I have done more little personal things that I’ve not done before. Going on an online dating site and actually meeting someone decent,lol

Online Dating Update

Thought that I would give a little update to my online dating experiences (and hopefully give you something fun to read on this Sunday night).

Guy Number one:

I shall call him number one because it seems to be going really well with him. The first date we couldn’t stop talking to each other and I knew that I liked him when we got home late and I needed to get up early the next day and so I kind of ran out of the car, but then, in true girl like fashion, I realised he hadn’t kissed me…and I wanted him to and woke up the next morning with regrets =/

Guy Number two:

This one is going nowhere. Guys there are only a certain type of girl that will like the needy “tell me everything and who you are talking to” guy…I am not one of those. I had to finally reject him and let him know that I was not interested. There was nothing “bad” about him, he is just not the type for me.

Advice:

My biggest advice is to meet anyone you meet online in public, do NOT meet in them in private. Do not let them pick you up or drop you off on the first date (possibly the second too if you’re unsure). Do pay attention to what they are saying, guy number two (for example) starting asking me pretty nearly straight away who else I was talking to. Although I am not very experienced in online dating, I felt uncomfortable about him asking me. DO listen to your gut instincts. Once I had turned him down I have now spent the past three days (I am not kidding) trying to explain to him I am just not interested. It really feels like I’ve broken up with him, rather than just letting him down.

Blogging is Magic!

I have been trying so hard to think of some sort of character to talk about for another edition of “Magic Monday” but who better than who talk about bringing Magic into my life than the wonderful world of Blogging! (Also I apologise for the lateness of my Blog).

I initially started this Blog as a school project and no it’s had turned into something that I actually love coming and doing every week (when I get the chance, or feel I have something to write about). I feel this has become a personal space that I can feel safe in and pretty much anyone who follows this Blog are the people who know about it. None of my family or friends know about this Blog. That isn’t because I’ve been writing nasty things about them (I never would). I don’t know…I just feel like this is my space…Just for me.

Through Blogging I have met some extremely wonderfully awesomely nice people. Who have given me amazing advice and I am shocked to know that people are reading and are reading what I am saying. Which is so not what my personal life is like at all! Sometimes I feel as though I am writing status after status on Facebook and no one actually gives a hoot. Sometimes I wonder if there is even a point to have a Facebook anymore.
