I’ve been so busy since I last blogged. Not only have I been studying Veterinary Medicine, I have discovered a fatal flaw in my plans…lack of qualifications in the biology and Mathematics areas….NOOOOOOOO! So guess what I’m doing…..Yeah, brushing up on my biology A-levels and my evil maths. (hate maths, numbers and everything to do with it, but needs be). Also I went on a four day course about business, how to run and set up, finance and all that jazz, was actually very helpful and eye opening. Now my mother is visiting from Essex and I’ve hardly had a moment to stop and think to this morning. with so much going on I’ve only just noticed Bonfire night slip by and now we’re in that mad phase of Christmas is coming…(42 days).
With this Christmas and new year coming I have some pretty huge choices to make, that will reflect on my life and careers in big ways. I am considering moving back down t Essex, from Lincolnshire (where I’ve lived for almost 11 years). Do I give up the little house I worked so hard to get and go live back with my mother and pay for my studies and go to university, or stay here with people I know and carry on doing it the way I am now? There are so many pros and cons on each side It actually hurts my head thinking about it. Its not easy. I have to think about the animals too, moving them could be stressful for them, AND ME! I just don’t know what to do.
At least Christmas will be good this year, I’ve already got some things, presents, I got a gingerbread house making kit, also some cake and cookie things so I can bake loads of goodies as well as Christmas dinner. My mum has upgraded my little 5 foot tree to a 7 foot tree (which I know my cats are going to LOVE -_-’ ) and have some new decorations. am a little excited, but Christmas is an expensive time of year, and I struggle to make ends meet now, but to be honest all I want to do is help the less fortunate, You know, visit the people that have no one on Christmas day, work in a soup kitchen, spread cheer to those who don’t feel any. Also help feed cold and starving animals (as well as people) but there is such a limitation on things I can do alone. as I’ve got ‘Older’ I am so much more aware of the less fortunate. I am NOT a materialistic person, what I haven’t got, I haven’t go, that’s all there is to it, I don’t throw a paddy or get mummy and daddy to buy it. I just work hard and treat myself when I feel I want to. Jut the way I’ve turned out to be.
Yesterday was remembrance day. the 11th hour came, and like everyone else I stood for two minutes, thanking the soldiers that have dies to make this country what it is today to see other people blatantly being disrespectful. The other day I helped a old gentlemen who had fallen outside a shop with his walker and was disgusted at how many people walked past him without so much as a glance! A little kindness goes a long way, showing someone kindness cost nothing. I have vowed to myself if I see a homeless person I will buy them a hot drink and meal. I will help someone struggling with shopping in the street, help a sad person feel joy. why? because someone has to. I get the joys of feeling great about assisting someone who needed it.
I just ask of my followers to do the same. think of the less fortunate. it doesn’t have to be in another county, poverty and assistance is often required on your doorstep. Take a moment to reflect on how lucky you are? you might not feel it, but to read this aren’t you on a mobile? a Laptop? a tablet?
That’s my opinion shared for the day, now I must get back to my business plan…..
All the Best,
