So I’m going to start off by saying that last week was not my most enthusiastic of weeks! I was still super sick most of the week and as a result my motivation to film things was severely depleted!!
I was going to skip this weeks Vlog entry because I thought it was just too lazy — BUT I’m not about giving up so I pulled myself together, got my edit on and Ta-Da The Student Teacher Diaries Episode 6 came to life!!
I forgot to mention in the Vlog… our plans for Cambodia are coming along really well – time is flying by!! I just need to buy my travel VISA and then I am good to go 😀 I’m flying home on my own (because I have a wedding to get to) so Im a bit nervous about being at the Singapore airport on m y own for 10 HOURS!!! If you have any advice on things to do during a ten hour stopover in Singapore PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT THEM!!!! (not going to lie… I am a little bit scared ).
I also included a little entomology stuff this week ❤ (to make up for the fact that I forgot to film a concluding segment! – sorry guys … I did warn you that I wasn’t on the ball this week!). If you have any questions about my butterfly collection please let me know ❤ Entomology is one of my favourite things so I am always happy to talk about it :p
Until next week !
Wowsers… so I had another hectic week last week and unfortunately my body could not keep up with my brain!!
I got what I think must have been the worst flu of my life… it was so bad I couldn’t even move from my couch for 2 days 😦
Something I didn’t go into very much in this video (but I think I’l talk about this week) is how hard it is, not only working full time AND being a full time university student, but being the partner of a FIFO worker. Normally I can handle Scott being away and it only affects me slightly but this week I really noticed his absence. It isn’t easy (if you watched last week’s blog you’ll know all about the pressure it puts on us) but we work really hard at our relationship and I’m so so soooo lucky that I found a man that loves me even when I’m crazy ❤ ❤ ❤ If you have any questions about how Scott and I keep balance in our relationship, please don’t hesitate to ask!
So without further a-do… here is this week’s Vlog ❤
That’s all from me this week guys,
I’m still recovering from my flu and, given my bed-ridden weekend, I’m also behind with my studies so most of this week will be spent playing catch up 🙂
Until next week
So my life has been full on for the last couple of weeks – I’ve barely had time for anything which I why I didn’t ‘t upload a blog last week 😦
But I’m making up for it this week !!! With two weeks worth of footage all lovingly combined into one episode 🙂
It is a little long , so it’s probably a good idea to make yourself a cup of tea before watching ❤
Have a beautiful week everybody ! ❤ ❤ ❤
Good Morning Everyone!!!
So it has been a massive week (and an even bigger weekend but I’ll talk about all that drama in next weeks blog). We have a new foster dog, Bear (who is literally a giant AND the cutest thing you have ever seen!). This is him ❤
I also had an EDSS (Education Student Society) trivia event that I attended this week and (spoiler alert) my team came 3rd (mostly because I was calling out the wrong answers to throw the other teams off (classic trivia mind games)).
So without any farther introduction here is this weeks video diary ❤ ❤ ❤
Have a beautiful week everyone!
I’m going to try and get some more resources up before the end of the week!
Namaste ❤ ❤ ❤
Hello lovely people !!
So.. my resolution to begin making video diaries has turned out to be a lot harder than I thought. I’ve been crazy busy this week !! With uni and work and organising a new foster puppy ❤ and having family come to stay I have not stopped – which is why this video is going up on Monday not Sunday as promised. But I got it done!!
Have a beautiful week everyone!!
So during my professional experience over the last month I was writing daily reflections and also reflecting after each lesson I taught and it was getting to the point that I couldn’t even remember what I was reflecting on anymore (#sleepdeprivedstudentteacherlife). So to save time I decided that instead of writing my reflections I would use my phone and record a quick clip of myself.
This is the best idea I’ve ever had because (a) I saved a butt load of time and (b) I was able to record myself straight away in the moment so my reflections were a lot more genuine than their original written counterparts.
I really enjoyed looking back over my past video diaries so I have decided to continue to create video reflections throughout my last year as a student teacher so that in years to come when I am an experienced teacher I can look back and see how far I’ve come.
I created a youtube channel (because I can’t afford to pay for the fancy WordPress account where you can embed your own videos #brokestudentlife) to upload my videos and will create a blog post to accompany each video every week.
As always any advice or feedback you wish to give would be massively appreciated (especially considering my camera skills are far from great).
I hope you enjoy watching my reflections as much as I enjoyed making them ❤
Have a beautiful day!!
