I was very interested to find out that today, in my state, is the date of June Solstice (the 21st) early in the morning.
What is the June Solstice, I hear you ask? Well I shall tell you.
The June or Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is the shortest day of the year, while in the Northern hemisphere it is considered to be the longest day of the year. Now by “longest” and “shortest” I mean the amount of daylight during that one day. The June solstice is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Usually it happens anywhere between the 20th and the 22nd, depending on your time zone.
You can look up your local time for the Winter or Summer Solstice via this link.
If you were on a debate team, what general subject would you relish debating?
Something to do with popular culture I think, I am one of those people who doesn’t believe in myself enough to know what I know…If that makes sense,lol
What’s your strongest sense?
Listening, definitely listening. Even when it’s not a topic that I’m interested in. Everyone is always going on about how I’m a great listener. Hey, I try my best. I don’t think that we listen enough these days. I don’t mean either, actually listening with our ears, but listening to what people are NOT saying as well.
What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Oh this is a good one! I actually really had to think about this one…Oh I know! It’s a quote my Gran wrote about me “A rare as the Unicorn, is the Maiden of fair spirit”.

So today would have been the first week of a new school/TAFE year for me, but for the whole month of February I am working full-time, so I can’t join my class mates right now.
I LOVE to study, I think even if I was to work all the time, there would still be something that I would want to learn about. I sometimes wonder if that’s part of the reason I like being a Librarian because Libraries have so many different items, book – fiction and non-fiction, audio books…Every-time I go into my volunteer work there is always a new author or topic I learn about.
Those who are heading back to school this week, I wish you a year of learning, studying and having your mind grow and expand.
