What’s haunting me,
Throughout this month I keep getting thrown new curve balls from death to great opportunities that will change the way my life is going right now with school will literally change my future. Now I know that doesn't sound rough it doesn’t seem like getting a great opportunity should be considered a “curve ball” but to me it is, and I will explain why a little later on.
I have really bad anxiety and I have always had it, it comes and goes but It’s definitely something that I am starting to get over and I am getting better at not being so anxious all the time, but it’s a huge curve ball in my life that seems to never go away.
The first day of school one of my friends from Quesnel passed away from a drug overdose, I was in shock for the first week then it started hitting me around the second week of school his memorial is in 2 days and I won’t be there, it's been hitting me again recently because he should be in college getting his nursing degree right now just like I am heading towards and I think of him everyday. Although I know now he’s in a better place I can’t seem to get him out of my mind, and can’t stop reliving all of our memories that we shared.
Since I was a little girl I have always dreamed of succeeding in life and owning my own property to start my own ranch or farm whichever is preferred. I’ve always loved horses and always planned on owning them and training them, having a log house and a lot of acres in of course Quesnel, my hometown. Now I have moved from Quesnel to Seabird island to Merritt where I am now attending N.V.I.T College and it is only a month in and I need to go home. This is where that “great opportunity” comes in, I got offered to be able to move back to Quesnel rent free and in return all I have to do is take care of the horses and 1 cat, which I have done for her before and I have always loved watching their horses and riding them and doing all of that stuff, now the curve ball part of this is that I have to finish this semester and transfer schools and I'm not quite sure when the next program is in Quesnel for my nursing, which is going to put a pause on my schooling.
Now, I grew up with people doubting me, my mom her boyfriend my family, they never thought I would go to college so there was no college fund but I believe that everything I went through as a child with my parents and my family have made me a better person it made me strive for getting a good education and not dropping out like everybody else did. I have a good relationship with my parents and my moms boyfriend now and everything's okay with them. Of course I still think about it and it bums me out but I tell myself that it all happens for a reason and we all became better people. I Am one of those people who believe everything happens for a reason. If I never moved to Seabird I wouldn’t be here right now. If I didn’t move back to Quesnel this past summer I would never have gotten to work with the horses and train them, and end up with opportunity I have now. I am taking the opportunity I am being given because it’s more then just getting to do something I love, it's being back in Quesnel with my friends my family and my animals, and being able to help out my mom with my little sister again when she needs a babysitter while shes working, and being able to help out family friends again with their firewood and watching there house and dogs when they have to go to kamloops for the doctors. It's about being there for my other grandma because she just got diagnosed with cancer, It's just about being there for those who need me as much as I can be, Instead of living five hours away and not being able to support them and help them through everything kills me, because people need me up there and I need them.
I can't really say that anything is necessarily holding me back because I tend to not let things hold me back I will push through it and fight it, and I won’t give up even if it takes twice as long to do whatever it is that I am trying to do. I wasn’t the happiest most smart kid growing up, and it took way too many years for me to really start realizing there's so much more to life than caring about what others think and if you wanna be happy you have to work for it and to stop thinking that everything’s trying to take you down because it’s not it's preparing you for the next chapter in life, and you just gotta be positive stay brave and conquer the world and grab it by its ankles, and live the life you wanna live!
One of my struggles is Learning to get into, this Moodle section . when i first heard the word Moodle i thought to myself, what the hell is that?
I need to do step by step notes having someone show me and for me to do my own notes.
All computer programs are updated so much, and I didn't use much in the past years, I get frustrated when i cant grasp it, I get pissed off.
When i have to look for search for thing even on the websites, and i cant find it. Because If I spelling it wrong or it bring me to another and another search site bothers me.
I get very ANGRY. and just want to say the hell with it. All said and Done I am here to learn what i can.
So that is all i got to say about that.
Oh yes I have figuring out the (Word) Moodle section to get to open ext . OMG
I'll start off saying I'm open to any and all feedback.
The thing that is on my mind the most is the loss of native rights and culture. I keep seeing all these things on the news and all over social media; myself I do my best to live a traditional life not just for my sake but for my children and my grandchildren yet to come. As is I feel bad for them because those people who are not here yet will not have the elders I have in this moment of my life. The fear I have about this makes me think I'm not good enough or doing enough to preserve my peoples way of life. Its very hard and I know not all of that is depending on me but I am extremely grateful I surround myself with people who share the same goal to preserve our culture even down to the name of an off flower. The other fear is that after the hard work there maybe nothing left to save and that my grandchildren wont know the taste of wild salmon ect. Anyways this is just me opening up letting you all have a glimpse into the life and mind of Colton.
The other day I came across this intersection and this man was strutin along also minding his own business when he decided to turn around and shout "ASK ME ABOUT ME WEINER" with a subtle English accent, little did he know I completely understood the reference "STFU Schrader" I don't think he heard me but I defiantly got a grrrreeeeaaaat kick out of it so look who the wiener was you potato!! Aaaaand scene. Moral of the story, if you read this you a buttcheek. :0 :) :3

Hello my name is dylan lulua and this is my second year at NVIT. I was born in Kamloops BC 9.5 pounds. I've Been on my own all my life meaning that i never had the family figure but, it made me strong in person. Why am very quite but once you get to know me am open and LOUD.
My name is Daniel and I was born into a Christian home. When I was a child I was taught to pray before
meals and before bedtime. Early on I trusted on the Lord Jesus and growing up I knew that in a loving
Christian home it was Christ centered. When I was about eighteen or nineteen I thought about doing
criminology and possibly law school. At the time I was not as smart instead I went into music. I have
a Bachelor's Degree in Music playing the trumpet from the University of Victoria and many times I
apply to professional orchestras. It is quite difficult to get in because they want small numbers depending on
the size of the orchestra. Most times they want one or two trumpet players. As of this moment I'm happy being
here in the Law Enforcement Program and I enjoy it a lot by working hard and going through the struggles of
getting through school.
Hi Students: i sent everyone an email but just in case you didnt get it. Brenda has the course package for this course which contains all the readings. This week is dedicated to give you time to complete the readings before the class starts next Monday April 13.
At Ashley apartments there are large clusters of residents’ mailboxes that appear in front of each building. Each cluster has a couple of dozen individual mailboxes each opened by a resident’s key. The system works well but the mailboxes have one problem. These mailboxes need to be repaired immediately because they create a bad image for the apartments. They have crumbling plaster and rotten wood. Few people looking for an apartment and seeing the mailboxes would decide not to rent at Ashley apartments. The current renters are also affected by the sagging, chipped boxes and lose respect for the apartment complex. This disrespect can be seen in the increase of litter because garbage bags are casually tossed beside the dumpster, not inside them. The most significant reason to repair the plaster and metal is a safety issue. The boxes are made of wood, plaster, and metal. Children play in the parking lots which are next to the mailboxes. One day soon a child may run right into one of the wooden boxes or sharp edges. Clearly it’s time to fix the situation.
