😁Hey everyone! Hope you are all doing well ❤. This week’s been hectic. Work started up again and I am busy everywhere. I work as an Educational Assistant and will start a reading programme as well this month. My contract is until March when the first term ends but they might extend some of our contracts♡.
If you have been around on my blog for a long time now,you’ll know I want to study to teach. I get accepted into universities easily but struggle with the finances. 😊However I was able to apply for a good bursary that I couldn’t previously,this year. Hopefully by the end of the month I will get good news of acceptance for the bursary. 😁Still got a backup plan though if I don’t. I can save up enough money this year with the job I have now to pay on my own next year.
😇I am also excited about something else. I stepped out of my comfort zone and auditioned for a favourite Afrikaans music game show of mine. 👀Between us,it’s actually the only thing I really watch on TV. I will know by the end of the month if I made it. 😊If I am accepted to play the game show,I will tell you more about that.
🌻Two things to smile about this week🌻
- Sometimes you help others more than you realise by doing small things.
- It’s really appreciated if you’re nice. A simple greeting goes a long way.
School started up again this week,right? So Tuesday I was helping at our school clothes shop and I talked a bit with everyone in line as we helped them. New parents at the school liked asking about the school and I loved talking with the Grade 8’s to ease them into the new school. They calmed down a lot by simply hearing a few things of how the school works.
I was also asking the matrics if they’re excited for the year or nervous and just talked to them a bit about the year. There was a matric though that told me she liked me very much and I asked her why. The answer really made my day. She said last year with their last exams of the year, in November,she was writing bussiness studies the one day and I helped calm her down. So in the class I was helping with invigilation for the day,while they were still studying the morning I saw she was stressed. I talked to her quietly because I saw she learned hard and knew her work and I told her to take a deep breath and relax. She said that it actually did calm her down and it’s thanks to that,that she got a distinction for businesses studies. She asked if she could hug me as well. 😊So sometimes by doing something as small as calming someone down you actually help them more than you realise.
You know what I have noticed working at a school? Everyone appreciates a greeting even if they seem like they don’t. The entire day everyone is busy and all over the place and hearing a friendly greeting from somebody passing them actually makes their day just a little bit better. Why? Because people appreciate friendliness especially when they’re stressed and tired.
🌟So let’s all try to be a bit nicer from now on. Every week think of one small thing you did that could’ve made a big impact and write that down on a piece of paper along with something good that happened in the week. Put the papers in a jar and at the year look at how much of a difference you have made through small acts by looking at those papers then.🌟
