#SoCS Spoken — April 21, 2018

#SoCS Spoken

This week Linda has given us, spoke for our Stream of Consciousness posts, which can be used as part of a word or as a word itself, whichever we choose, and there are bonus points available if we don’t use it in the first sentence! I am using it as part of the word spoken.

I always seem to find myself talking about how far behind I am with my blogging on Saturdays in these posts but as it is becoming pretty frequent I will have to stop doing that. I am also going to mention today that which should not be spoken about! You know what I mean, something else I am harping on about a lot lately, and it has to do with the .profession that I have chosen.

I have to tell you though, that I passed the assignment that I had to resubmit and although we have been back at Uni since the start of the week, I can now fully relax in the knowledge that I am a fully fledged 2nd year now! We go out on placement  at the end of May, something else which I am pretty excited about too!

I think I have spoken enough for now!

Episode 336: #BeWoW Post. How I Connect. — May 20, 2015

Episode 336: #BeWoW Post. How I Connect.

This Post is inspired by Ronovan’s Writes Be Wonderful on Wednesday.

As I was thinking about what to write here, I came to the conclusion that actually, I am not really great at connecting, at least not in most situations.

The fact that I have a blog and belong to an online community means that I do connect with others on a daily basis, sending comments back and forth, and getting into interesting conversations, and finding the funny side of things. This seems to be where I am most comfortable!

I am very shy and can sometimes come across as aloof in person, despite that being far from the truth. It just seems that I am so much better at expressing myself with the written word rather than the spoken one! This does not bode well in social situations though. Funnily enough, although I hate job interviews, I have always been quite lucky in that I have overcome the fear and secured the job, on many occasions. That was probably due to the fact that I knew I had to do it, or I would be jobless and penniless!

As far as my family and close friends are concerned, I am much better at making connections. It has always taken me a little while to get to know people to the point where I can just be myself with them. Last year for example, we had a family friend come over to visit us from Sweden where he now lives. He has known me since I was 9 years old, and we were in my mum’s back garden with other members of my family. He couldn’t get over how much I was joining in, laughing and making jokes.┬áThat is the real me, but not that many people get to see it because of my inability to connect well with others I do not know.

One of the other ways I connect with people is again through the written word but this time, a poem which is nearly always a funny little ditty. Whenever there is a family wedding, special celebration or even sad event I have always written a poem for that person. It is just my way of letting them know that I care for them, even though I am not good at saying it face to face.

We are not a ‘lovey-dovey’ type of family, Well, at least we were not brought up like that, My parents did not ever tell any of us that they loved us, as that is just the way it was then. However. all of us constantly tell our kids that we love them as it is important to have that security and knowledge to know you are loved. Love is certainly the strongest of connections, and I do have that bond with my daughter.

Mainly,in one way or another, whether written or spoken, I connect with people through humour. I think it is so much easier to make a connection with people if you are all laughing together!
