Wow, what a year it has been thus far thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic making a mess of everything. But I'm not gonna use this blog to talk about that since we're all very familiar with it Rather, I'm gonna write down some small details about things I've learned in my highschool field placement experiences thus far! School 1 - Public Co-Educational School Very low socio-economic school Large percentage of students are indigenous or Polynesian School is overcrowd

Wow. It's been a long time since I last posted in my online journal thing. That's not really surprising. I've got a poor history in keeping blogs updated. Anyways. It's getting closer to 2020. This would normally fill people with excitement, but I'm not feeling it. Has 2019 been a bad year per say? Not really. My uncle did get cancer (in the bile duct actually, but he was extremely lucky to have the best surgeon in the state to cure it - literally had to lose 80% of his liver though, b

Sometimes I wonder what my purpose for living is. I often find myself looking at my family members and thinking 'damn, what the hell did I do in my past life to be the failure' I think about my former colleagues and see the lives they are living now and I think to myself, 'I guess this is what I deserve for being an asshole'. So I think that perhaps some people are just born to be lucky and others are just destined to fail no matter what. I've never been a believer in destiny and such, but

I learned today that my older cousin could be pregnant. Most relatives and friends would be happy with that news, but I'm not. I guess I'm just envious because I'll never have what she could have. Society is always so in your face about 'loneliness leads to an early death' and 'being single and childless means you'll be more miserable' and 'an active sex life makes you happier than someone who doesn't have one'.  With that shit constantly in your face, it's pretty hard to feel like you

Damn. It's certainly been a long time since I wrote anything in this, but I feel now is a great time to do so. I'm in creative writing mood so better ride the high while it lasts. Although it's not the end of the year yet, there's only four weeks left so I'm making one of those reflection posts. This year has been a mixed one. It started off poorly, improved a bit then dropped dramatically to an all new low before lifting to incredible heights. At the start of the year, I was stil

Words simply can't describe how I feel today.  I woke up and immediately checked the forum and noticed @MasKaiHilFantic's status update about Chester Bennington found dead. I told myself that this had to be some hoax and it was just some lousy media outlet trying to hype themselves up a little. I checked Linkin Park reddit and noticed Mike Shinoda had confirmed it on his Twitter page. My heart broke. I don't normally get too upset over celebrity deaths, but Chester's death hits me so h

Well yesterday I started my first day as a pre-service teacher! *someone who is studying to be a teacher* Lots of fun things planned over the next couple of years which I hope will be a rewarding career. Lots of placement stuff and I also applied for my first ever Blue Card (which basically proves I'm not a child molester). I'm choosing English/History as my core areas since I love history and english (since I suck at maths and science). New job hasn't started it, but I went past

God, it's been awhile since I've done one of these! Not much to say here. I'm enjoying my last two weeks of freedom before university starts up again. That's right. I'm going back to university because finding a full time job in Australia is pretty damn hard for university graduates and non graduates. What am I studying? I'm gonna do an Arts/Education degree since that's one of the rare fields you can actually get a job. Aside from that, I'm also due to start my new job in ab

Today I'd like to write about how much music means to me. I do believe that without music, it would be a lot harder to make it through the day, especially when you're facing tough times. There's a song for every mood - there's a genre for everyone. It's so diverse and it brings people of different backgrounds together. The thrill of listening to a new CD after waiting months. The joy of going to a live show and watching your favourite band perform on stage. Music connects people in the

The year is almost over. Time certainly flies by, and I for one, can't wait for 2017. Hopefully, it's a less shitty version than 2016. I'd consider 2016 to be an epic fail of a year for my own life. I'm still stuck in a shit dead end job that I can't get out of because no one is interested in giving me a chance. I spend four years of my life getting a degree that I can't do shit with. I keep applying for jobs and continue to get turned down. Sometimes I wonder if I'm just meant to be o

"I could totally add this scene to the story even though it's not necessary, but I think it would be cool!" Does that sound like you? Because that's exactly what I'm thinking about right now. I'm sitting here looking at my story and thinking, 'Damn, I could do so much more with this! The possibilities are endless!' But then you have to ask yourself, 'Does this scene actually add anything to the story or am I just putting it there for the hell of it?' Ah, that evil inner critic that nev

Well, it's December, and usually this month is better than November. I still haven't decided what I want for Christmas - every year, my cousin and I tell each other in advance what we want (give three choices and choose one) so everyone is happy. However, I already have what I want. I'm considering just saying 'don't get me anything'. But this blog entry isn't about Christmas. It's about writing. Recently, I was feeling pretty depressed over my own writing ability, and I don't know if it's becau

This week has been a pretty shitty month. Actually, as per yearly tradition, November has been a shitty month. Usually in November I get sick and come down with a horrible cold that lasts for several weeks. In the first week of November, I was feeling pretty sick. Terrible stomach pains, killer headache so bad I could barely stand without wanting to drop dead, and lots of vomiting. Hurrah for me. The week after that was kinda boring, but I finished studies that week so no excuses not t

My life is kinda boring so I haven't been doing many blog posts relating to life. However... this week is a noteworthy one. Why? It's the end of studies woo hoo. I'm not going to to the graduation services because I can't be bothered. In other news I've discovered how important tweezers are to daily lives. The other day my SD card got stuck in the 3ds  But never fear, the tweezers saved the day! The 3ds and SD card were unharmed. Speaking of 3ds, I've been playing Moon and I'm 3/4

Today got me thinking - why are some people just jerks? So for those of you who don't know, I currently work in a crappy casual job at a cafe. If you've never worked in hospitality before let me share a secret with you - you learn to really hate people. Sure, sometimes you'll meet the nicest people in the world,  but most of the time, you cross paths with self-entitled fucks who think they can walk all over you because you're just a piece of shit. I had this lady complaining about her

I've always had a terrible habit of starting things and never finishing them. Fanfictions, projects, games... and blogs are no different. I do hope to try and keep this one up and running, and if it survives for more than a week, consider that a real life achievement. Anyways, not much happened today. In fact, today was a pretty average day like most other days of my not-so-fascinating life. What did I do today? I stayed at home and looked at a computer screen for the majority of the daylight ho
