Another job?!

And just like that I been offered another role in a different field! This is insane! Two jobs in two weeks! So what is this new one? Well it’s me helping out as a volunteer so will be really cool doing it! Apart from that I just went for my exam which was where I was filmed and have to act out the role of a Peer Supporter. I dunno how I did on it because I felt nervous and the truth is I didn’t get the right feel for it if you understand that? Like the chemistry between me and the person there who was doing the filming didn’t feel right. I guess because she was there from early this morning and no one turned up it was maybe a little shock for me. Still it’s true though, ten minutes can just fly by without you noticing it! The minimum you have to do is ten minutes and maximum is 20 minutes. Either way I’m going to request to re do it and work with someone else. I’m hoping El can also pass the exam because she is someone who had this amazing way of speaking. It was like she born to teach people so hopeful she will be able to run a class herself maybe. Anyway I need to get ready for my second meeting and arrange things for both myself and mum. It’s definitely looking like the year of Rebuild!

Cancelled TV shows we miss

Evening world how you doing? Today’s rant is about a major problem we all face and that’s shows been cancelled. How many shows you watched hoping that the next season would of got the green light but never did? For me I got quite a handful of what I wished would of stayed. For example : V, Lie to me, Invader Zim, The Wire and even Murder One to name but a few. When V first got announced as been remade it had me on the edge of my seat especially after season two cliffhanger ending. And what happened? Cancelled. Same can be said for some people with Firefly with it ending so fast. Never sat down to watch it yet but I plan to someday with the movie that came out.

Sometimes I wonder if ratings are really to blame at times though because if the cry for more of the series from the fans is there, give it to them I say. Good example is The Wire. The first season didn’t do too well in the ratings however the DVD sales was really strong and allowed it to run for five seasons in total. Murder One is a show that a lot of people like myself can say was ahead of it’s time. I’m re-watching it now and cannot believe how good a show it is! Show like this is something I really hope gets bring back to life at some point.

Recently Amazon, Netflix and even Microsoft are making shows that are going to be making original new programs but what if they can bring back some of these classics? We can only hope it ever happens but who’s to say it can’t?

Zombieland: The Series only got to a Pilot episode before it was dropped by Amazon Studios. A lot of people said how bad it was but I can’t pass judgement on it myself since I never saw it. Another show that only had a Pilot episode is Birds of Prey from the DC Comics. Unfortunately this was just bad and yeah deserved the axe if you ask me. But hey that’s just my view on the matter and maybe you guys see it differently!

For now I can only hope shows like Suits, True Detective and Black Sails have another season to keep the story going. Till next time!

Good news

Well I got some good news world … I got the job! When do I start? Well I gotta wait for my CRB and references to come back and I’ll be ready to start! I just gotta wait a week or so for it to come in though which is annoying but hey what can be done? The only real downfall is that it is temporary but either way, using the experience I can add it to my C.V and work in other hospitals or different parts of it at a later date maybe. Either way I’m buzzing from it still and feel completely happy that I got it!

Stress and more stress

So this week I have a job interview on Thursday for the hospital. I’m okay with interviews nowadays and not so nervous but sometimes it a case of me not finding the right job for me. See right now I have to balance out been a carer for mum and also trying to find a way to keep money coming in at the same time. Since mum illness isn’t long term I can’t claim carer’s allowance nor can I find someone who mum will be happy to look after her. Catch 22 I guess but then that’s life all the same. So what do I plan to do? Sit back and have a long think about all of this and try find a answer to all of this. Today wasn’t really a great day for me either with the fact that once again no one turned up for the course training facility. I’m getting more and more annoyed by it and next week is the performing arts assignment so I need to get this out the way. Truth is I can I may have to ask one of the tutors or someone who is free to work on it with me. Having said that I did get a text from one of the tutors if they want to practice tomorrow on it so will take her up on it. Sigh as well as that I’m now taking a few things to the back seat such as a few personal projects I wanted to start. Doesn’t effect me writing the book in any way and so far I just clocked in 100 pages at long last. I can’t believe how long it’s taken me but I gotta say I’m glad I’m not rushing it and making mistakes though. Saying that I still need to find someone who will proof read it which is taking longer than I wanted. Sigh it’s annoying how the two people who said they would have now just not bothered do it any more but still the hunt continues.

Single Parents

Hey world how are you doing? Today I wanna talk about single parents. Sometimes it’s hard to get the correct support to become one or even find someone to accept you as one. A lot of the times we think that things will work out in the end but how far until we need the help we really need? Who can say but then some people are strong and can cope better than others. I’m not going to say the person’s name but they really pissed me off with how she behavioured. Drinking around minors to me is something that shouldn’t be done especially first thing in the morning either. Let’s be real now, if you as a parent are drunk and you have to look after your child, is this the way to go? No not at all. But in fact both of them as a couple who were both single parents did this and I never felt so angry in my life hearing them say it’s fine. No it’s not. You need to get yourself cleaned up and look after your child. Seriously do you want your child taken away from you because if you do carry on.

It’s people like this that gives parents a bad name. Over here in the UK, some girls take advantaged of this by becoming pregnant which would allow them their own place. It’s not the correct way things should be done but the amount of benefits you can gain for been one is pretty high. Before the rule changed though, people from aboard who came over here and was pregnant wouldn’t have to pay. Now the rules have changed and you have to pay the full bill which in a way angers a lot of people. Reason is because again as a single parent you was offered so much benefits. Being a parent is no easy job at all and should be taken for granted either since it can mean sleepless nights and a lot of stress. But the great thing about being a parent is been able to share those first moments like when they giggle or smile at you. Even taking their first step or further more been able to stand up by themselves. The first ten years are meant to be the hardest times due to you helping your child out in every way.

I remember reading about a parent who was a young teenager who killed her own baby due to him crying while she was playing Farmville. Stupid huh? Here’s that report of it : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1324599/Mother-pleads-guilty-shaking-baby-death-interrupting-playing-Farmville.html

Now look at her face and tell me what do you see? To me I see a mum who couldn’t care less about anything but then you may see something different. As it says she killed the baby because it interrupted her playing a simple game like Farmville. This is just insane and to be honest very sick to hear. Still she is serving time and hopefully she will learn her lesson for doing such a horrible act of violence. Sometimes when I walk down the street though, I always do wonder why is it that you always see a woman looking after the baby? But then I think to myself maybe the Dad is the one who is working hard while she looks after the new born. To be honest we don’t and can only think what can be the case in these things. Another point I want to raise is how hard it can be single Dad’s. Back in the day it was a case of them not having much luck on their side which is unfortunate. Things may not be that much better but we now have more of a system to support them. For myself I wish I could become a dad again but will the chance happen again? I dunno because to be honest with you, the scars of losing Maria still haunts me to this day. My hat goes off to anyone who is a single parent and been able to keep going through the trials and tribulations you face in your every day life. It’s in no way a easy task but no matter how hard it is, give yourself a pat on the back and say… I did it.

Till next time enjoy the rest of your week!

The problems we face

As of this week it’s been pretty difficult with what’s been going on in my personal life. As much as I like to talk about it I’m confide to do it due to the after effects. Its true what they say though, you can choose your friends but not your family which is the problem right now. Having said that I still waiting for a couple of people to get back to me about my written piece for my assignments. I’m hoping all in all they warrant enough to make me pass and leave me to worry about the performing arts one so I can pass that as well. With in mind I do have a job interview to go to next week as well for a role in the hospital. I’m pretty much ready for it but my mind is a little elsewhere with how things are. Sometimes I wish things were simple and that I don’t have to worry about lasting effect but right now it seems to hang around like a bad smell. Tomorrow is Good Friday already so I’m hoping I can get a few new tops on sale and maybe even get a few more chapters done in the book. I been silent on it for a while but I’m still working on it now and then. Either way hope you all have a good Easter holiday and enjoy it!
