Natural hair rediscovered

Image
Natural hair journey. Rediscovering my natural beauty. Last year i did a big chop! Yes... Since then i have been going natural, as you can see in the photo (my hair looking so loco!) Well this is the length of my hair unbraided but when i washmy hair it tends to shrinks even further like drastically. Am not the type of person to spend hours in my hair, fixing and putting together unless of course its for an occasion or special outing (you know a lady got to look the part ). Wash and go...are quick and simple! (No blow drying). You probably would like to know what i used in my wash and go..right? I thought so. Wash and go list:
Shampoo
Conditioner
Coconut oil (100%)
Shea butter leave-in conditioner (smell so good)
Styling gel/products  (if needed) As simple as that you don't need tonnes of product for your hair. For styling i have tried Eco styler but to a very limited use it makes my hair dry and crunchy (can't deal with that sorry!) I don't know if that's because …

Job hunting

Job hunting can be one of the most daunting things you will ever have to do as an young person or adult, unless that is you live off welfare/government funding.So i have been in and out of many jobs mainly because after a while i am not interested , i have problems getting my pay or the correct amount of pay or i dont feel happy around the people i am working with/for or i have moved to another location.I for one hate the whole process of finding a new job but desperate measures calls for desperate action.Although with modern technology applying for jobs is so much easier nowadays. Simply upload CV and cover letter , however some companies do prefer application forms which is a little time consuming but it shows that you really want the job because you took the time to fill it out properly.These websites tend to be popular for job hunting indeed.co.uk and reed.co.uk also prospects.co.uk and graduatejobs.co.ukI do think my perfect job will arrive in good time, one which i will love doi…

PGCE interview

Hi guysWelcome back to another chapter in my life.
Yesterday i had my PGCE PCE interview. That was quiet nerve racking for me but who doesn't get nerveous for any form of interrogation  (unless your overly confident). It was a nice lovely sunny weather throughtout day, as my interview was in the evening i had all day to prepare myself. The interview consisted of 10mins presentation, 20mins questioning and 20mins free writing.Heading for my interview their was traffic, a motorcycle crash and then all of a sudden haystones or ice falling from the sky. I mean this can't be good, the place was cold and to top it off i have the cold. So i was breathing and talking all through my mouth as my nose was blocked! Surely i must have sounded like a frog!😂😂 but i did my best and i pray it is good enough to get me a place. Above all i never gave in and i never cancelled.Never let a bad day put you off from reaching your targets, keep focus and stay bless 👍
Guess all i can do now is wait …

Don't discriminate against the gifted.

Hi again
They say experiences open your eyes! This i have experienced working with disabled person.
A gifted person is one who has a uniqueness about them. These persons am talking may have one or more disability or it might just be a special talent. 
It is just surprising how people who aren't disabled cringe at people with disability. It is not good when you are being discriminated against just because you are different from the 'norm'. That i have experienced by other people working with gifted children. You can see people staring, whispering and the bad looks, its not nice at all. Just imagine yourself in that persons shoe how would you feel if you were in their situation? I love working with different people regardless of their culture, background or whether they have a disability.
Sometimes people should mine their own business, give people the equal opportunity to enjoy their life just like you can in a fair way.
They don't need the discrimination and criticism…

From disappointment to appointed

Hi allWhat a beautiful day it is in the Uk. The sun is out, school is out (Easter break) and the flowers are cheerful. That can only mean one thing, yes its spring time. Today i have been given a new least of  life to start over again. Continuing from last blog my feedback was rather disappointing about the lesson i had taught (i didnt think it was as bad as i thought). So yes i was made to to feel discouraged but as it is my passion i will see it as constuctive criticism and build on it. That is the way forward. Is there a personality that is fit for a teacher? How would you discribe such personality?But all did not went bad that day i received a phone call for a new job opportunity and today i had the interview and looking to start immediately. So all did not go wrong sometimes things are just a learning curve ....learn from your disappointments, your wrong doing and the good thing in life. Be reflective and take one step further.Be postive and have a nice day!.

A BIG welcome!!!!

Hi Everyone.
