Whoops... Monday flew by - must have been the hectic weekend. So instead of a memory Monday you get a thoughtful Tuesday.
How did you feel about school? Did you enjoy it more at some ages?
I liked school most of the time. Loved my grade 3 teachers Mr Drinkwater and Mrs Aide and my grade 6 teachers Mr Poole and Mrs (forgot the name). In grade 4 I had a mean teacher and I used to cry and tell my mum I didn't want to go to school. Now that I have kids who sometimes try to pull that one - it must have been hard for my mum to put up with that all year. I enjoyed highschool, though I probably could have finished it all up in two years if I had homeschooled, high school is a big time waster, but hey it's fun.
Did you go to college or have vocational training after high school?
I went to University and studied Public Health - Family and Consumer Studies. Pretty much I came out with no speciality - Whoops - Have found it hard to find a job ever since, and they have since ended the course - it doesn't even exist anymore - but I don't regret doing it. It set me up for my current job as Stay at home Mum and I am able to put a lot into practice here. In a few years when I need to look for a job - most places say that I need a nursing background or counselling background as well as the health degree if I want to work in community health which is my goal. I am sure something will pop up that will fit my 'credentials'! University was interesting but I am glad it is over and I hope to NEVER go back - I didn't enjoy it that much - plus I still owe the government for my current degree.
