Mollie's Adventures

Learning something new everyday

I imagined, and it happened

Many months ago when I found out Katy Perry was coming to a town near me I was so excited. Ecstatic actually. I think Katy Perry is amazing. Anyways, when the tickets went on sale I was on the site right away and I think I had row 5 or something… but then I have no idea what came over me…. and I decided that I shouldn’t keep spending money on concerts, and I left the page. Every since I did that I regretted it. I when back to the site a while later and all of the good seats were gone. And then the concert was sold out a while later. I was so angry with myself. This is something I really wanted and I was reason I couldn’t go. This blame could not be passed on.

For months I imagined myself going. Then I thought, radio stations often have concert tickets to give away all the time. I had won some before, maybe I could do it again. So I listen constantly, I also made my boyfriend listen as well, even though he is not to fond of the music I listen to, but he knew how bad I wanted these tickets.

Anyways after months of trying, I got nothing. I was still imagining though, imagining myself at the concert. Imagining what it would be like. Then the weekend before the concert one radio station was giving away tickets every hour. Well guess who had headphones in most of the weekend. Yep, I was listening every chance I got. Unfortunately my boyfriend had a friend getting married on the Saturday, so I had to put my headphones down most of the day. Which was extremely hard for me. I was not to impressed. Haha 😛

On the Sunday I was determined. I had to get these tickets, I had dreamed about it the night before. My boyfriend and I listened all day. Then it happened.

Early afternoon on Sunday we were sitting there calling and my boyfriend turned to me.

“It’s ringing”
“It always rings and then it has the busy signal”
“No, it is ringing”

I think my heart started racing, but I can’t really remember. He gave me the phone and I heard the ringing… I was shaking. Then I heard the DJ come on and say hello. I could barely contain my excitement. We chatted about the weather, then he told me I was the right caller. I had won. I could not believe it. It was two days before the concert I had a lot to do, but right then I didn’t even care. I was jumping around my apartment. Then after a while it hit me, I had to call work and get everything worked out. Luckily everything worked out great, and we got to the concert. And it was amazing, even my boyfriend had a good time. He said he was not a big fan of the music. But she had a good stage presence.

I loved it. It was amazing.

So a big thank you to my boyfriend for winning me the tickets, but also I think the positive thinking and the imagining myself there played a big part as well.

Overall, she was great, and I suggest to never pass up the tickets if you really want to go 🙂

Positive thinking, its the way to go.

Over the weekend I had to do something that I was not really looking forward to. But it was important to other people so I sucked it up. In the days and weeks coming up to it, I was so nervous, stressed, and easily angered. Everyone kept telling me that it will be fine. I did not really ever believe them. Until I started to tell myself that it will be okay. Yes I was still not wanting to do this, but I just told myself over and over that it would be fine.

And as much as I hate to admit this… It was. I would love to say that I was right and it sucked and for a certain part it did. But the majority of the time I had a lot of fun. And all the stress and fights were not really for much. I kinda feel a little silly actually.

Anyways I had a good time, and I believe that positive thinking had a lot to do with it.

OH AND, I have been trying to win tickets for this concert for weeks and weeks, I imagined myself winning, I imagined myself even going to the concert. So after weeks and weeks of trying and positive thinking. GUESS WHO WON TICKETS!?!?!??!??!??!

 

 

 

well not me…..

 

 

 

BUT MY BOYFRIEND DID!!!! which means…… I GET THEM!!

Anyways, thanks for reading, love you guys. And remember even if something will really probably suck, stay positive. It really honestly helps.

Okay really?!

Okay, I do believe that there is no wrong decision, just different ones. But when I keep telling myself this, I seem to pick a choice that puts me in a horrible situation. I mean come on, what is with that? Well I guess you have to look on the brighter side, well at least try too…. Like maybe it would have been worse with the other choice. But that is one thing that you will never know…

I just feel so down lately with everything. I miss my old job, I just missed my sisters birthday, my new job is not turning out how I imagined, I am stressed, I miss my cat, people are not being nice. I just want to laugh, and smile. Like really smile. I feel that I haven’t really smiled in a while. Well my boyfriend really tries to cheer me up makes jokes and yeah I smile but then it’s like I am back to all the frustrating things in my life.

Bah!

I am so frustrated.

You know what I want so badly right now!?

I want to walk into the daycare where I worked, and just be welcomed by all the smiling faces, hugs, and cuddles. I would love that.

I know my posts are kinda sadder lately… I’m sorry.

MAKE YOUR OWN CHALK!?!

http://www.ohmyhandmade.com/2010/contributors/homemade-sidewalk-chalk/

I definitely have not tried this recipe yet, but I am keeping it in my back pocket, well not literally. Hah!

But yes I know kids love chalk, I saw kids at many ages just playing with it.

I think it would also be a good idea to make it with the kids, so they can see the process, obviously I would want to make it before taking it in to them just to understand everything. I have definitely made that mistake before…. taken something into teach and not tried it first…. not a good idea…… hah

Anyways if you do try this out let me in on some tips 🙂

Is it worth the respect?

Having worked in a daycare before the job I have now has helped me a lot. I have learned so much about how to deal with kids, how to react to kids and it has really helped. But one thing I have learned is you can’t just be a kid’s friend, if you are going to be a good teacher/instructor, the kids need to respect you. This means you have to be tough sometimes, and you will have to deal with the kids not liking you sometimes. I get that and I am okay with it, yeah it kinda sucks sometimes, when you have to get mad at the kids but then you earn respect right? They know that they cannot mess around and they get their act together with you. They listen when you talk because they know that is the rules.

It is just tough when you are the only person who feels that way. Right now I kinda feel like the only one who really deals with a lot of the kids at my work. I know the people I work with are good and when they see something they deal with it. But I seem to deal with a lot.  I know I am the one to often just stand to the sides when they are playing games so I can keep a count of the kids and watch for kids not getting along while everyone else is playing. So it means that I have had to deal with many kids, because I am the one who sees it all. But they don’t mess around when I say something. And I think that is good. I think having the respect is important right? It is like the parents who just want to be their kids best friend… well that does not work because when you do not discipline a child then they think they can get away with whatever and it makes it so much more difficult when you have to deal with that child later on. And then they just take over, and think they can do anything.

I don’t know maybe I am over reacting. I just miss my old job. There we were all on the same page about respect. And that you dealt with disrespect right away, and we were all the ones to discipline. We all took that on, so one person was not always the “mean teacher”. It was good it helped a lot. I think a lot of my problems are having to go from that job to the new one.

But honestly, I just miss my old job every single day. I just want to be back there, where I am respected, and cared about. I really don’t get the feeling like that at my new job, and that is hard. I honestly feel that if I didn’t go to work no one would notice or care too much. That it would be no different if I was there or if I wasn’t. But at my old job the kids loved me, and would miss me if I wasn’t there often, they would ask when I am going to be with them next, they would just want to be with me. Play games, colour, anything, they just like being with me. Also the ladies I worked with would say they liked having me around as well. So I really felt needed there. I guess that is my biggest problem. I just want to feel needed, and I don’t feel that at this job.

So what do I do?

Hello new job….

After many hours spend dreading my new job, today was the day. It was my first day. You see I use to work at a daycare, and that was my dream job. I loved everything about it, well almost everything…. AHA! But it was amazing I would walk into work and have little girls running up to me and saying good morning and that they missed me. Also all of the kids there knew me, listened to me (for the most part :P) and they respected me, again mostly. Also this age group that I use to work with was 2-12 and there were ver few older kids they were mostly kindergartens. Anyways, I have had to work hard there to get the kids to know me and like me. Well going into a new job where you work with kids and they dont know you and they do not respect you is SO FRICKEN DIFFICULT!!!!!!

Especially because with this job there is so much for me to learn still and I am having a hard time learning everything, the boys that I work with know a lot more about it all than me. So today I was told by one of the kids that he wanted one of the other leaders to help him… great I am already the dumb one. Also these kids are ages 11-15… a very tough age to work with… So I will say now that it was hard today, with the first hour I wanted to go home, and the few hours after that as well. But then I was pair up with this one boy that just needed some extra encouragement. He asked me about my life, and just wanted to get to know me. After I nice long chat he told me that he is very gald I started working at byte camp… and things started to go up from there. I kinda got use to having to ask for help all the time. See I am very stubborn, and do not often ask for help… But you kinda gotta sometimes. But then it really made me see that I can make an impact still, that was really important to me.

I know this job will be tough. And it will be frustrating at times, but well, who knows what will happen we will see.
