I started…

I cannot believe that I forgot to mention this to pretty much everyone, except for my partner.

I started an online course to do health administration. Which are the receptionist/front desk people at General Practices, Dentist, etc. I am honestly, excited to be doing it. I am already learning the differences between viruses, bacteria, pathogens etc. I started at the beginning of this week (online, so I can keep working) I’ve already passed one test and I handed up my first assignment today.

It has been really nice learning something again. I think that learning is just something I’ll be doing for the rest of my life. Learning and Studying. I’ve been trying to get into courses on how to start your own business, but they are just all so expensive! I’ve been finding with this online course, I can keep working, learn and hopefully get myself something more permanent.

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.

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

  • Wake up feeling refreshed AND not waking up not too early and not to late, maybe snuggling in for a little bit.
  • Playing with the pets, even if I have to pick up their toilet business in the process.
  • At some point I’ll be reading and writing something
  • I’ll get to chat with the best people from all over the world while watching safarilive at the same time.
  • There’ll be a long shower in there somewhere.
  • I’ll clean out a lot of things! Not clean up, but clean out some of my “stuff” and get rid of it.
  • Although I might also clean something that’s been bugging me.
  • If it’s around Christmas, I might actually go out Christmas shopping…for a few hours,lol
  • Catch up on favourite shows, I usually do this when I’m eating my lunch.

Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world…..

Where ever the people and animals I love the most are…Lame, but true!

Who was your best friend in elementary school (prior to age 12)?

I had a couple, I’m not “friends” persay with them anymore. However, one of the brilliant things about Facebook is I’ve been able to find each of them on there. It’s been great! The funny thing is, it’s interesting to see how much we get along with still. I haven’t seen some of these people for over 20 years and yet I could still hang out with them quiet happily and I’m sure that we’d still have a lot of fun. Sure, on Facebook we usually represent ourselves in a positive light and they might be terrible people, but I just don’t think so,lol

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.

Share Your World … Week 44

What was your favorite subject in school?

I actually had two I really enjoyed, but one was was made better than the other just by how one subject was treated. I LOVED my classical studies class because my teacher was the teacher who discovered my dyslexia, rather than just ignoring it. So he’d go through my projects and papers with me. It was the only class I got A’s and B’s in. I also really loved Drama, but my teacher would always pick the same people for the best parts. I felt such satisfaction though at the end of year play. In the main play, I was more eye candy than acting. However, I was the lead in the short play before the main play. My group got praised and the actors in the main play got slammed. It feels evil of me now, but I was a little happy, because I had so many of the others actors come up to me during rehearsal and say “What are you even doing here, you’ve only got one line”?

If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do?

Can they do the Garden? It’s really the only thing I don’t get any fulfilment from. I’m just lucky in terms that my partner and my Mum, may not necessarily be overjoyed doing the gardening, but they don’t hate it like I do. I’m sure they’d appreciate getting some help for it though.

Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

I lived in a different place to where I lived when I was in third grade. Some of my family live near the area and we tend to go past it on the way back, just to see if anything has changed.

In your opinion, list some places that are great for shopping?

I love places like Kmart, Big W and Target…and Neds!

Zing Pop…It’s probably my favourite place, but it’s full of nerdy type things. Like figurines, superhero clothing, nerdy/geeky accessories. It’s not full of “practical” things,lol.

Lovisa is my favourite jewellery accessory store. They always have some kind of sale or special on. EVERY time I go in there I buy something else.

What is the most fun thing you did in school?

It would have to be a toss up between my Media Studies class and my Classical Studies class. I actually did Drama and I loved it, but there were such fights about who got what parts on the major performance, it became less fun. Media Studies I got to learn how to make films, shows, film editing. My Classical studies have stayed with me.

What is your favorite type of dog?  (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

I actually really love Rottweilers, I think that they are just gorgeous! I would choose Wolf, but for some reason I read this question as a Dog I could actually have, as my own. My dad’s friends had one (I think he might have been crossed with a Great Dane as well or something, he was huge!) and he was lovely. Unfortunately my Dad’s friend did not control him very well, and he got to rough with a police officer and they had to put him down…I was quiet angry about that, she never should have bought him. It was why I would never own one, I know better.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met.  Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?

I think that I would be intrigued so much by it that I would just go to the party, even though I would probably be uncomfortable and nervous. You know that if you didn’t go, you’d regret it.

Who was your best friend in elementary school?

I had a couple and they changed over the years, my school wasn’t very big and people would move in and out all the time. I probably overall had about 3/4 best friends. The amazing thing is we’ve found each other on Facebook and they are all doing really well.

What things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

Make me lasagne, it doesn’t matter what the weather is like, whether it’s Summer or Winter. It’s pretty much the only thing I can stand to eat. Most of the time when I’m feeling down, it’s better just to leave me alone and let me eat my lasagne. I actually panic when I think about having children, cause they require a lot of attention and they might eat all my lasagne!

If you could make a 15 second speech to the entire world, what would you say?

You have to do you in this world, but don’t hurt anyone.

Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?

I love to dance, I would love to be an amazing dancer…BUT…I have a feeling that being an amazing singer might pay more of the bills. So I would have to go with being an amazing singer. I’ll just keep dancing the way that I want too.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?  Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

I don’t really have anything wrong with my vision at the moment, but I think that I’d prefer contacts. I’ve seen lots of people with glasses and they lose them all the time!

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

Red…Definitely Red, I got offered a job I don’t want but I’m not sure how to say “No” without appearing ungrateful or giving myself a bad reputation. I took the job because I was desperate, but I’ve got other opportunities coming up.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

School was difficult for me as I was suffering from Dyslexia and pretty much through the whole of high school I’d get the same comments. It wasn’t until after high school that we discovered what my issues were, which is kind of sad really. I always wonder if I would have done better.

Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

I’d rather take a cruise of my choice, but does it have to be cruise? I get sea sickness =P hehe

What are you a “natural” at doing? 

Apparently I am a natural at reading people. With all my job uncertainty at the moment , I am looking into how to do some of the hobbies I do as a job. I like to do things like Reiki, Tarot reading etc. I’m looking into how I can make money off of that now.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

After what happened to my leg, I never ever want to live in a multiple level house ever again. If you get hurt it is pretty much hell trying to get up all the stairs. Unfortunately living with my Mum at the moment means if my leg plays up again I’m stuck with stairs. Unless I can convince my partner to move in with him.

What was your favorite subject in school?

I LOVED Classical studies. My Classical studies class was made up of Ancient studies, so ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt. All those awesome places.

Complete this sentence: If only the rain.. 

Would fall down on me right now…I’m uncertain at the moment if I’ll even have a job by the end of next week and I really need a good cry. Without worrying all of my family, friends and partners.

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”:

  • Elephants
  • Leopards
  • Hyena
  • Buffalo
  • 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

List:  Name at least five television shows (past or present) you enjoyed?

  • Buffy/Angel (except for Angels last season)
  • The Bill
  • Doctor Who (Matt Smith is my “favourite” Doctor, I love them all though!)
  • Just the whole of the crime channel pretty much,lol
  • Key and Peele … Classic!lol
