My Plan is to…

… gain 2-3 degrees by the time I’m 30! =) No one is allowed to put me down and tell me I can’t do it – NO ONE!

Oh & yes it’s a little ambitious but totally doable. I worked it out. I wanna do Multimedia/Interactive Media, Youth Work (ministry) and Theater. At some point I will blend them all together for the greater good – Outreach to the youth of today!

So, as of Sat. 20th I will enrol for a foundation degree to get me started. It can take 1-2years to complete and then up to an additional 15mths for a full degree. I’ll be seeking a placement while studying to gain experience and work my behind off to make it permanent or enough for a great reference. THEN… I’ll be going straight into the next one while working in the field of the completed degree part-time and then when it’s time for a placement again, I seek one relating to what I’m currently studying. So hmmmm….. that’s another 2years give or take and by then I will be 27-28yrs old. If I decided to do the 2nd one part-time I’ll be realistic and add on a year meaning I’ll be 28/29. I COULD seriously be in the middle of my 3rd course by the time I’m 30!

Whew! This is going to be A LOT yet so what, right? A goal is better than one and to I’m not dumb, Just one degree will be great – there will be no disappoint if time or circumstances fail me. When I get started at something, I kinda become a workaholic, I’m dedicated especially when I’m passionate. This is just an outline plan of achievements, not so much a must-do. It is all possible… just sayin’. 🙂

I have been a “quitter” before at college when I took on my first ever course after school days. It was Media Studies and it turned out to be all types of media except of the one I was hoping to go into. I was bummed and unhappy there so I dropped out after completing the first year – still got a qualification with merits though. 🙂 I would call it quitting, just a misdirection? :-s

Then I went into full-time work and made my way up to Trainee Assistant Manager of a well-known sports fashion company but them some dodgy employees killed it for me by selling stock on the side and as management, we’ve got to take the fall too…

Went back to studying doing Technical Theatre but then got knocked up. THE END. That’s the light-hearted version – my life is full of drama surrounding these events but the past is past – YOU ARE ALL FORGIVEN NOW!

Oh, there was more I wanted to blog about but I’ve got mothering duties to attend to and then a heavy dose of reading.

I was creeped out last night and the night before by memories of old time horror shows and movies! Why I watched these particular ones in the first place is beyond me – but it happened …. and I am scarred!

The one that came up: “The Blob”

The thing is, it is so unreal in every way and can be seen as hilarious from an angle – there is an element within it that really eats you up at night or alone. Or is that just me?

All I know is as much as it made no sense, the thought of a huge, big ol’ goo ball rolling up (ever so sloooooowly I might add) and consuming me with no remains, petrified me!

Yeah, the dramatised full volumed music and the high-pitched didn’t make it any better for me either… sigh.

Personally, I knew that in the same situation I could easily outrun that thing – which I successful achieve in my dreams too – so I’m good 🙂

But you know what was worse, that sticks in my head even more? Twilight Zone! Ugh! I can’t remember how I ended up watch some of them, but I wish I just went to bed early….. instead I think I wanted to be grown and be all up in the mix – Nuh uh! I wish I went to bed.

It was just sick and twisted! I remember kids onscreen suddenly turning round to reveal they had no mouths, the creepy episode with a girl hating patterns because people came through wall, Talky Tina, that ventriloquist puppet, that voice at the other end of the phone line, and that episode where this guy was the only person alive on earth…. Wow – Only those that watched it would find some of these familiar.

I was going to fish out the theme tune but I can’t bring myself to do it! Argh!

I decided at the beginning of the year to stop watching these kind of movies altogether – Many have made the same decisions in life. My reasons, hmmm… because they make you think ways you shouldn’t think, they create unnecessary fears (as if the ones we have already aren’t enough!) and they steal my joy – there you have it!

Horror films just don’t cut it now days, anyway. The reason must lie in the twisted story-lines, the abrupt “there’s-just-no-need” music, and the over-acting…. Now, I could watch a horror movie and still sleep at night. I think we now mainly create them to scare and make people flinch, whereas back then it was all about get into our minds and provoking our thoughts in ways that made our skin crawl.

You elders are sick – SICK I TELLS YA! ((shake fist))
