I feel like I haven’t written here for ages! And I guess it has been a while! I’ve been super busy starting to teach 5 days a week, and of course taking the last week off relaxing with family and friends for Christmas time. Oh and I’ve had a job interview, and got the job! So from July (when I’m qualified) I will have an actual real life, teaching job! Whaaaaaatttt!
I want to get better at doing blogs though, as I do enjoy doing them, and its a nice way to document my time studying and learning the ropes. But while I’m on holiday (and seeing as though I am yet to do ANY work while I’ve been off), I’m going to do the ‘First Time Tag’ I’ve seen many YouTubers do. I used to be obsessed with doing those weird note thingies with all the questions you used to get on facebook, so I guess this is like that! Here we go!
What was your first car?
The car I have now! Which I have had for a whole 4 months now! 3 years after passing my test, I finally had the money (JUST) to afford to buy and run one! It’s a red/burgundy Fiat Punto, and I love it!
Who was the first person who you cared more about their well being than your own?
Probably when my little sister was born, so her! I have 2 little sisters, but the first one I was to young to feel that properly, and we are too close in age. But the 10 year age gap between me and my other sister means that I 100% care about her well being more than mine. And same for my little bro, but Lilly was the first.
When was your first public speaking success?
Can’t say I have done much public speaking! In fact I don’t think I have ever done! So I guess the first lesson I took, seeing as that was kind of public speaking I guess?
When was the first time you got stitches?
Never! And hopefully not for a long time!
When was the first time you stayed up all night and watched the sunrise?
Probably when I was about 16, and me and my friends had our first “house party” at a friends, and just never ended up sleeping!
What was the first thing you learned to cook?
Pasta or stew probably!
What was your first paying job?
WHSmith was the first proper job I had. Before that I had a few jobs working as a cleaner and at random days with a friends dad’s company working at school fete’s and things on the bouncy castles.
When was the first time you flew on an airplane?
When I was 17 or 18, I can’t remember. Me and some of the girls went to Costa del Sol on our first (and only to be fair) girly holiday.
What was the first concert you went to see?
I must have been 14 or 15 when a band called Elliot Minor came to play a gig in Clacton. Then weren’t exactly huge, but I had actually heard a few of their songs on Radio 1 and stuff, so it was an amazingly exciting buzz for all 14 year old’s of Clacton at the time. And I got to go see them, and it was the first live music thing I went too!
What was your first bike like?
Pink with mermaids on. Lush.
When was the first time you shot a gun?
When was the first time you moved houses?
Well my parents moved (with me) when I was about 1. I don’t remember it, but it was the first time I moved. Then I moved out properly (not including uni) this summer!
When was the first time you through a punch?
Again. Don’t think I have. And if I did, I know it would be laughable.
When was the first time you quit a job?
I guess I quit WHSmith when I went to uni.
What was the first professional sporting event you went to?
The London Paralympics 2012. Best. Day. Ever.
When was the first time you realized you are good at your job?
I guess when I got the job I have starting in July. The interview went beautifully, and the person who observed my interview lesson said it was outstanding, which is amazing!
When was your first regrettable hair style?
When my mum tried cutting me a fringe in when I was about 15. But it was a thin fringe, which didn’t look great if we’re honest.
What was your first business venture?
Errmmm…I don’t have one?
How old were you when you first left home?
I first left home for uni when I was 18. Moved out good and proper when I was 21.
When you the first time you cut class?
I didn’t (except when I was ill, but that doesn’t count, and was very rare anyway), until uni!
How old where you when you had your first kiss?
16. I think I was the oldest person ever to get their first kiss.
When was the first time you went fishing?
Again. Never. I feel like I need to do some more things with my life!
How old where you when you got your first computer?
My own laptop. I think I was 17, and it was more of a netbook if we’re being technical.
When was the first time you stood up for your self?
Probably not too long ago. I was always really shy, and wouldn’t say boo to a goose. But in the last 2, 2 and a half years, that has changed, and I am no longer scared to say what I think, or to say boo to a goose.
I didn’t like these questions much, and I’m sure there are better ‘First Time’ tags to do, but this was the one I found, so this was the one I did! I enjoyed it though, so maybe I will do more like this again in the future!
