A series of unfortunate events (well not quite)

The past couple weeks I have been debating about what I should write my blog about this week, I have decided to share the unfortunate events that have happened over the last couple of weeks with you guys… Sounds worse than it is to be honest LOL.
Right where to begin.. As you all know I am a very proud Social Work student, I recently started my placement (well November) and I enjoyed it for the first couple of weeks, then it started going downhill… FAST!
They teach you what to do during your placement, how to do it, what to do if you have a problem, who to speak to… that would be your practice educator.. But what they don’t teach you is what to do when it all goes wrong.. This is what happened with me… things Snowballed swiftly…
I started to have issues to put it lightly, it started off with my placement learning agreement meeting.. you know in books like Of Mice and Men, all that foreshadowing you don’t even need to read the end or in films when something happens and your sat there thinking run away now don’t go towards the noise! That’s basically what happened, alarm bells started going off in my head, but I enjoyed it so I stayed and then came the day when I had enough, it wasn't working out so we mutually agreed it was better to not carry on the placement…
The university and my tutor was amazing! She sat through everything with me and was by my side to support me every step of the way! One thing I would recommend is that you should take full advantage of your tutors and make sure you keep them sweet! They will always be there to support and help you when you need them! So honestly make sure you go to them when you need help…
And then to top it all off, with the stress of my life and placement and uni, smarty pants here accidentally submitted my Law essay onto the originality part and didn't realise that I hadn't actually submitted it properly until a month later… so I am waiting to hear back in regards to that!
But I haven’t let it put me down and I will continue to work the hardest I possibly can and to the best of my capabilities regardless of what is happening and going on!
Anyway to continue on with my series of unfortunate events or fortunate, depends if you’re a glass half full or empty kind of person… we will be moving houses soon, as if my life wasn't stressful enough already! And to top it all off I just painted and wallpapered my room just to sell our house and move to a new one ¬_¬
All of these early mornings are killing me, I feel like there aren't enough hours in the morning to sleep! I recently started watching Scandal season 4, if you don’t know about it then it’s about this lawyer who is in love with the President of the United States but she is also this awesome Lawyer who wins all of her cases and stuff…
Anyhoooo, I started watching season 4 (The latest one) and I thought can’t do this, I need to watch it from the beginning or I’ve missed the whole plot! So I’ve started watching it from season 1, I am currently 2 days in and on Season 2 already! I really need to get some sleep and stop watching Scandal when I should be sleeping!
And the WORST in my 4 part series of unfortunate events has to be 50 Shades of Grey, it was quite possibly the worst movie I have ever watched in my life, I mean I knew it was going to be bad but not as bad as it was, we were literally sitting in the back laughing at how bad it was! On the plus side there were some good movies this month, American Sniper was really good! I think anyone and everyone should watch the film to understand how war can impact family lives and relationships.
Kingsman was really good, it was funny and really did live up to the hype! It was different, just when you thought one thing was going to happen another thing did, not your usual movie!
Anyway for now my series of unfortunate events has ended.. well probably not to be fair but it’s getting there…
And I am too tired to write anymore, so until the next blog…
Zàijiàn (Goodbye)

(Oh by the way I am also going to learn how to speak Chinese/Mandarin)
