Pirate name

Red Anne Flint

Passion is a big part of your life, which makes sense for a pirate. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

This game thingo

One of my siblings did this and I thought that I would give it a go but don't know if I've got it right....

Here are the rules:Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I love white chocolate. I will happily eat milk chocolate but am not really a fan of the dark stuff. Funny though, every Easter, not matter how many hints I drop, I get very little white to sometimes none.

2. I am highly allergic to dairy. Quite sad when you read the above fact. Tragic when I'm a caffeine addict (that fact doesn't count as number three, you already know that one). Luckily, I hve worked out that two coffees a day is ok, but cheese has become my enemy : (

3. I am a teacher who has no qualifications whatsoever in that field. I have been teaching for almost ten years and have finally decided to get those qualifications.

This is hard......

4. I have a thing for roguish heroes in the movies. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is the current favourite. I never thought I was going to get over Vigo Mortenson as Arragon in Lord of the Rings though.

5. I twirl my hair when I am stressed or thinking.

6. I don't get scared when I get out on to a dance floor in front of people, in fact I relish the oppotunity to show off. I actually GO OFF!!

7. I can't look at underwater photography. It scares the pants off me!! I did, however, recently venture into an underwater observatory and wasn't phased at all.

7a. I am scared of the ocean and won't swim in it anymore.

8. I can do a "double under" with a skipping rope (two rotations of the rope with one jump). Or atleast I used to be able to.

But Wait! There's More!!

So dear readers, you may have already deduced that I am a very busy person. For those of you who hadn't worked that one out, I am a musician, music teacher, ballroom dancer and dance instructor. So what more could I possibly add to my busy schedule?? Well, how about a Diploma of Education! I think that I can actually hear my siblings from here!!! I have just applied for a place at a uni here to do my dip. ed. I am almost assured a place so I will be starting next semester. Yes, in a couple of months! Why on earth would someone want to do this? For years I have been teaching music and because I don't have the little piece of paper saying that I have any education qualifications, I am not recognised as a teacher, financially or otherwise. Its time to get that recognition and open up some pathways for myself. I have been stuck in a rut for some time now and here is my opportunity to do something about it. It's a one year full time and two year part time course. I am going to do it in eighteen months. There are some members of my family that I will not be telling until I have to as this may cause them some stress (hint hint siblings!). But I am determined to this and I have support in the important places and some very high places too. Wish me luck as I venture into this storm and I will emerge the other end a qualified teacher.
