Hi Wanderers,
I thought this song was appropriate because as many of you may be aware the creator of this amazing song died this week. I also love singing it so here you go-
I am sorry about the post shortage of last week, it was hectic and I had a lot of family stuff going on so things have been tense!

Hi Wanderers,
So I have been a participant of the working world for over a year now, assisting swimming teachers and such so it would be fair to say I have experience in the world of work. There is quite a complexity to the relationships I have and different levels of trust that accompany them. I've kept secret 'office romances' from my boss- not my own romance but a colleagues. Also I now have a very set objective as to how I want my 'career' in this business will progress. I know obviously I don't want this to be my full time day in day out job but I have goals.
1. To complete my levels 1 and 2 teaching certificates.
2. Be fully able to lead my classes with good results.
3. Be able to use my experience to find work once at university.
I work hard but the Saturday shift I have is so long. From 12 till 5.30 and it's a drag, however worth the money, I will have enough money to get good presents for my family and friends, be able to treat myself and just be able to have some money for myself.
However, a job shouldn't be just about the money, you should enjoy it and be able to make friends through it. I have made some good friends through my job and has also made things like my references to school more acclaiming. So I'm not saying go get a job, I'm saying that having a job has really made me grow up a bit and it may do the same to you.

Hi Wanderers,
So as you know from Friday's post, I have been into Wales this half term. We had hired a beautiful cottage that I had my own rom in- with a huge double bed included I may add. Even though it was the end of October, the sunset looked like it was in Greece or somewhere.
The day after we arrived we visited a small town named Barmouth, a picturesque seaside town with fish and chips and fudge shops on every corner. We also visited a quaint little town that looked like it came out of a fairy tale. This place was called Port Meirion. We met up with friends and visited this place that was showered with coloured houses and shopsWe also visited Swallow falls, a collection of waterfalls that were very impressive, the roaring sound was just unbelievable. I totally recommend it, the cottages were name the Rola cottages and had a train line running outside the house and a great path down to the beach. I would love to go back and I hope we will!

Hi Wanderers,
Saying goodbye is something I have had to do many times in my life but sometimes it can really mean goodbye. A friend of mine is leaving school and I would be wrong to say I won't miss her because I will. We have been through so much in the past five years that I really can't believe that I won't see her bubbly face around school everyday. It's true we have had our problems and differences but in the end, we never really stopped being friends. I know that we won't break contact but it will never be the same.

But there are more other ways that saying goodbye can effect people. When I lost my grandmother three years ago I didn't realise that the last time I would say goodbye to her would be on her birthday earlier in the year. I often think about what she would have to say about the world in this era. Also all the things she has missed. My brother going to secondary school, the birth of her great niece, my prom and exam results day. I would like to know how she felt about me and my accomplishments and if I would heave been different if she hadn't have died when she did. It's a strange thing to think about I suppose, but a though nonetheless.

Hi Wanderers,
I am writing to you from my snug little cottage in Wales, it's warm and a real home away from home. Also it's right on the coast so it's just a short coastal walk down to the sea, very steep as well I may add and very close to the edge...

So onto the topic of looking in the bright side of life. This is something I always drive to do but it's not always the easiest. Whilst growing up there are many factors that could effect your overall outlook on your life. It's a strange concept but a realistic one. When I feel down I always try to think about the good things in life, then watch an avengers crack video on you tube and all is dandy. However, for many it isn't always that easy.

I have a friend who went through quite severe depression, she found it hard to cope and I believe that by coming to school and having her loved ones with her may have helped a bit, but I can't be sure. I am no expert but things like depression are quite commonly sourced in the home, many may think they are just feeling down but that person would be feeling a lot more than that- I will say this again I am no expert just taking this from personal experience of helping friends!

As I have said before I am always here to talk, I can set up an email helpline if you think that would be helpful, just let me know if that's what you want!

Hi Wanderers,
On Friday night I went and saw Dawn French (a famous English comedian) up in London. Her show was called 30 million minutes equaling to 59 years, equalling her age. She was so honest and hilarious at the same time. However the main point of the show wasn't to be funny, but enlightening. To get the message out that you only have one life, live it without caring who you are or what you look like, were you came from or what you have done.
It really captures the essence of honesty. She touched on some very personal subject, like her father's suicide and had w that effected her. She asked herself ' do I still love him after what he did?' And her answer was, of course. Of course I still love him he was my dad. It was an amazing and thought provoking experience, one that I will always remember and one that I will share with my Dad, it was something we don't really do. Go out as Dad and Daughter but we did. And it was great.

Hi Wanderers,
So this weeks little bit of advice has both a literal and metaphorical meaning so I am going to start with the literal. I had my third driving lesson today and if I'm honest I was scared this time. I finally drove an a main road and I was so worried that I was going to make a mistake or something. Yes I did make mistakes, but I didn't just give up and say I'm done- this is were the literal part comes in- because technically if I had actually stopped I was probably going to end up cause even more harm than good. I had a really good time and ended driving home at the end of it, much to my mums excitement. I was so worried but I had no reason to be, I was fine so long as I took my time and thought about what I was doing. The instructor even told me that I was a really good driver by what he had seen so far so that's something right?

Now onto the metaphorical part. Thinking about doing something is just that. Thinking. A brain action that allows you to process and create thought. You need the motivation to do something otherwise what's the point of doing it at all. Changing your mind or agendas yeah fine but not using your mind is completely different. Not using your mind to motivate yourself is like Disney without Mikey Mouse or Emma Swan without Hook. There is just nothing there worth doing so if you aren't motivated to begging with, when you get to the tough part what happens? Do you give up? Or do you get of your arse and deal with the problem? I know what I would do, what about you?
