Passionate about Science


For a few months now I have had my head stuck in the science books as you may have read (if you are paying attention to the fine details) I am embarking on a huge journey to become a fully qualified Neuroscientist.

It has been something that I have wanted to do for a long time, something that I love – there is nothing more cool than discovering something cool about the human brain and the way we make connections in life. How the brain works – how life works for that matter. It’s not just that, I have my own theory’s about the human brain – But of course we all know that you must have a qualification for people to listen to your crazy theory’s about the human brain (well all brains really). Its something that I would like to have behind me aswell – The fact that I love science means I know I can do this. Just because someone is ‘smart’ doesnt mean they can do something great aswell. I feel that you need to be passionate about what you are doing, such as, you reading might want to be a great writer but you are passionate about art – why not paint more and write less, or find some way you can join art into you’re writing? You could draw pictures for youre blog like this wonderful blogger Doodlemum.

I personally wouldn’t mind what science field I got into – Last night I was watching a BBC documentary ‘Wonders of the solar system’, I remember how much I love learning about astronomy, and biology, and physics and all the crazy theory’s and awesome science stuff. I have had to go back to basics and start learning chemistry though – I was never given the opportunity to attend any chem classes in school because I moved schools 3 times (weird crazy Adelaide school rules that you have to start chem in a particular grade to attend the classes in all the other years). I guess it doesn’t matter about that anymore because I am to start from the basics again and I love to learn.

One of my strengths I think would be being able to admit defeat when it comes to factual information, I would love to personally thank the inventor of google and the internet for giving people the ability to settle arguments with a simple google search. When I am wrong and I am proven wrong, I can happily admit it and be thankful for learning something new (some people don’t take being wrong as a good like I do) I am always open to learning something new – It is why I read self-help books, because there is nothing more satisfying to myself as learning something new, especially something to better myself and make my life great (learning something new about people in general that is NOT gossip is great). I want to be able to learn more, I want to be able to help others by sharing the information I learn – it is also another reason I write my blog (regardless who reads it), it gives me the opportunity to share what I know and whether people like a know it all or not, I enjoy being able to share the information I learn and I love being able to talk about science.

You really only have to look at this to realise how amazing life is, and how important science is.

And this

And eventually create a human being or an animal. How amazing is that?

At the end of the day, these things show exactly why I want to be a scientist, the small and the big things in life that are still waiting to be discovered – and I would like to start with the human brain, I would like to learn how it works, how to reach my own full potential, how I can help make other people’s brains function better.

I don’t know the meaning of life – But what I do know is the meaning of ‘What do you want to do with your life.’

I want to be a Scientist, and who knows – Maybe one day I will discover something great.

 

Rubys Notes – Chapter 1 part 1 edited


For those of you who are wondering, I posted my first draft copy, of my first chapter, of my first novel and for the first time. That is a lot of firsts. http://allworldissues.com/2012/12/05/rubys-notes-chapter-1-draft-thoughts/

I asked people for constructive criticism (yes good and bad) one thing you need to realize if you want to publish your work – you need to seek the criticism, and face the music – otherwise how are you going to improve and make it better?

Last night I spent a bit of time editing it (old school paper and pen style)

book edit pic

here is some of the edited copy – And for those who are wondering ALL my work IS in fact Copyrighted. So don’t be thieving ;)

Being a school teacher wasn’t all it had cracked up to be. Sure there were a few perks, seeing the smiles on those children’s faces every time I entered the room, just as easily they smiled when it was time to pack their bags and go home, teaching them all about how the world works… How much they actually listen to is a different story. My name is Ruby, Ruby Kensington but you can call me Miss K.

I’m not married, I don’t even have a boyfriend, I don’t have children of my own and I don’t have any friends. No I am not a weirdo or maybe I am. You can decide that for yourself. I’m going to tell you a story about how I ended up in the position I am in.

June 28th 8:40pm. 1993

It was the 90’s and I was fresh out of law school, already I had already received my first job offer. I was desperate, so I went for it not knowing quite what I was getting myself into. We had arranged to meet at 9am the next day to discuss what the job involves, the only problem was that I did not know who I was meeting or why. I had received the phone call out of the blue, and the person I had spoken to did not go into any detail about the job, they just gave me a time and the address of where I would be meeting my ‘potential employer.’ When you are a lawyer, you don’t think too much about those types of phone calls – although I would have preferred to pick the location myself.

That night I had a group date with my best friends Chloe and Sandra.

They had been my friends since we were in law school. Chloe had long blond hair with colors running through it, pinks, purples, blues and oranges. She was short, maybe 5’2 and she was very socially awkward. When Chloe was younger she really wanted to be a hairdresser, but her mum forced her into attending law school. Chloe didn’t want to upset her mother, so, she used her talents with hair as a side business as a way to make some extra cash. Now Sandra on the other hand was the complete opposite. Sandra was a girl of status in the law industry – as her dad was a lawyer. She was tall with luscious tanned legs that go for miles. Sandra had dark hair and dark eyes, with a European look to her plus she was really skinny and everything about her screamed sexy. Sandra always had all the guys pining over her like little puppies, even though she turned them all down.

As the night progressed I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was being watched. You know the type of feeling you get when you think there is someone who just won’t stop staring at you? The hairs on the back of your neck stand up and cold shivers run down your spine, as if someone had ‘just walked over your grave’ as they say. That’s the feeling I had now, so I decided to call it a night with my friends and walk home.

As I was walking I started to feel dizzy, queasy even… did I really drink that much? A few minutes passed by and I couldn’t bring myself to walk any further. I hailed the first cab I saw and jumped in. My house was about a 10 minute walk away from our favorite hangout but I just couldn’t bear to walk any longer. The taxi drive made me feel worse. I wasn’t even sure if I was even in a taxi anymore and I just passed out.

A post a day and getting featured


So I am currently a part of ‘a post a day 2012.’ It’s been 1 day’s since and I can tell you it is actually hard to think of something to write every single day…

Sometimes I think we all forget to enjoy the smaller simpler things in life. Like this weird tasting spiced late I have. My point is writing can be simple sometimes and sometimes is can be hard.

But sometimes I forget to just enjoy writing, to just let all the words flow out and just get lost in my writing.  

I started advertising my site last night. I am looking for some writers to write a piece for the website. It can be anything at all, you can write about anything and everything. You can even send in more than 1 post that you would like featured.  There is no word limit and all you need to do is provide your name, place you live and a paragraph about yourself. 

There is no reason at all that I won’t accept a post. Just try to keep it at least MA (mature audience.)

You can also send in things written by your friends (with their permission of course)

Just comment on here with your email (I won’t make your email public) and I will send you more details. Or if you would like something re-blogged then just comment with the link to the specific post you would like re-blogged.

And tell your friends!

Yes, I have never watched batman


Image

Of Course my Fiance is outraged. I have never in my life watched batman. ‘OH MY GOD, where did you even grow up” he says while i am writing this “That’s just weird, I’m sorry I love you, but that’s just weird. I was a sheltered christian kid and even I have seen batman” he proceeded (now hes listening to bass hunter not talking about batman at all)

But yes, Seriously i have never watched the batman movies and only watched maybe 2 episodes of the batman cartoon. (that i remember)

Should i catch up on my un-knowledge about classic movies? Maybe i should.

I don’t know why but for some reason as a child i didnt grow up watching many movies… Maybe it was because my sisters loved watching pokemon and the only movies i had watched in the first 10 years of my life were – The pokemon movies, Digimon, Dragon ball Z and The Mummy. Or maybe i just spent too much time in my bedroom, sitting on my bed and thinking about the naughty things i had done to end up there.

As ive grown up i still havent seen many movies.

I get teased about it abit, My fiances Brothers and sister are.. I guess you could say… obssesed with latest movies and the actors that are in them. Most the conversations i have witness while being around them, are about movies ive never seen and actors ive never herd of.

They dont like me… They actually think im a crazy whore (sorry for my language.) I could delve into why they think that but its basically a case of they live in the past and stew on other peoples past mistakes, even if that person isnt the same person today as they were back then. They also have this habbit of constantly, indirectly and through conversations about other people’s mistakes, reminding me of my own. Making me feel bad.

Me and my Fiance were going through a rough time a few months ago and he ended up staying at his sisters for a month or so. They took it upon themselves to decided how i was feeling. They would tell him that I didnt love my Fiance and that i was pretty much a psyco. It caused alot of trouble between us too and he made some mistakes of his own.

But you know what? I dont hate them over it.

Because little do they know the whole time, I knew everything they were saying, I knew what they were encouraging my partner to do and I know what their intentions were. But it didnt work, because you can’t bully and harrass someone into throwing away their family (being their fiance/wife and kids). It does not work.

I thought harrassment would stop if i quit schol in grade 11. But it didn’t sadly I am still putting up with it. But from ADULTS who claim I’m just a moody teenager who needs to grow up. Yet i don’t spend my days talking about other peoples flaws, bad grammar, how so and so cheated on so and so and so on.

If they decided to read this (which i doubt they will because my appaling grammar will cause them to close off the page because i am obviously not worth their time) then I don’t care. They might realise that there are so many more things i can say but wont.

I am not a saint. But I am also not a bully. I dont agree with bulling at all.

 

Simple little sparkly things.

So I am at home now, I couldnt find what I was looking for today. So I found the perfect substitute… A $2.50 glass bead braclect and some fishing wire. Although it looks like nothing special it has the desired effect in the room.
