Book Update.

So anyway I have been reading a few books lately I thought I might tell you about them.

The Miracles of Prato.
It was an interesting book but probably not one I would have chosen myself. You can find out what I thought about it here.

The Book Thief.
This is a book about a young girl named Liesel Meminger living in Germany in the late 30s and early 40s. She starts to take books and learns to read, from these books. It also portrays her relationships with those who live around her and how her foster family hides a Jewish fist-fighter from the Nazis. As well as her growing up.
I found this book really interesting as it gives a different perspective on that era not least because the narrator of the book is Death.

The Secret Life of Bees.
Lily Owens runs away from home with her black housekeeper in the summer of '64 when  race riots where breaking out cause of the new Civil Rights Act. She stays with the Boatwright sisters who teach her about bee keeping and she learns about her mother whom Lily believed she had killed when she was 4.
It was an interesting book because of the racial aspects but I thought there was too much wierd religion. The sisters were Catholic but with there own rituals added in and it seemed to me that it was completely devoid of God and the whole focus was on Mary, like she had God's power. I googled the author and found out she had journeyed into feminine spirituality and I found it kind of wierd.

So the next book I will read is The Time Traveler's Wife.

I found this on you tube and thought I would share it with my blog readers.

30 days of blogging - Day 29 - In this past month, what have you learned

In the past month I learnt thaqt I am still a private person there are some things that I don't like to share, and that I feel uncomfortable sharing. I also learnt that I still have trouble keeping up with things I have committed to sometimes, especially if they are not essential.

I also realised again that I love my family and that they are really important to me.

30 days of blogging - Day 28 - A picture of you last year and now, how have you changed since then?


So how have I changed well I've had my ears pierced. I think I've lost some weight. I have finished my TAFE course. My mother told me that I have matured a whole heap in the last 12 months. I guess I also feel a lot better about myself ( most of the time ).

30 Days of Blogging - Day 27 - Why are you doing this 30 day challenge

30 days of blogging - Day 24 - A letter to your parents

Dear Mum and Dad,
I just wanted to say thank you for being my parents I love you guys so much. I also wanted to thank you for introducing me to God who is perfect and understand's everything that is happening.
I know that you love me and that you want what's best for me but sometimes I feel that you are expecting me to do things your way and that you are not letting me work out the way that is right for me to do things. Yes, you are older that me and therefore have more experience in this world that I do but we all need to learn our own way even if that does include making mistakes.
I'm sorry that I don't always show you that I love you but I want you to know that I really do, and I just have to work out how to do things myself.
God bless
Elizabeth

30 Days of Blogging - Day 22 - What makes you different from everyone else

Well everyone is unique so I'm different from everyone else in that way.
Also I have a harmless pattern on my rettinas but it is different from the other ones that people have but it is most similar to bear track pattern.
I had a benign cancer removed from my chin a while ago and it was very unusual, the doctor had never seen it before and had to look it up in his book.
I read an interesting range of books, fantasy, historical fantasy, (Christian) Chick Lit, biographies, Christian Self help and anything else that takes my fancy.

Fliz/Flizabeth - my sister had to do a biography on someone she knew for school and she chose to do me when she was writing it in her book she accidentally put an F at the beginning instead of and E and since then she sometimes calls me that ... and she is the only one who is allowed to.

30 Days of blogging - Day 04 - A habit that you wish you didn't have.

One habit that I wish I didn't have was that I say sorry way too much, everyone is always telling me off for always saying sorry. I try to stop but it is quite difficult.

Something else is that I think that people are picking on me when they are not and then I react to this the wrong way. I really need to work on this and would appreciate some prayer.

30 days of blooging Day 02 - The meaning behind your blog name.

It's a kinda random name and a complicated story. Well I found the blog of I friend I hadn't seen/spoken to in ages and I wanted to get back in contact with her. I decided to leave a comment on her blog to get in touch, but I couldn't comment anonymously so I decided to make my own blog. I couldn't think what to call it at first but then I thought the blog would be about my life and random things I thought of. Kind of a bit like nonsensical Gibberish. I also thought of a song by my favourite band, Relient K, which is called Gibberish. The verses are random sounds and the chorus is saying that you shouldn't speak in Gibberish. That also explains the blurb under the heading, which is the first verse and chorus.

3 I like to read fantasy books but especially Historical fantasy.
4 I mostly listen to Christian music/bands/artists.

12 I finished High School ten years ago.
13 The majority of non fiction books that I read are biographies because they are like narratives
14 I like to have a pile of books that I plan to read, and a book cannot go on the book shelf until I have read it.

Hospital.

No it wasn't me in Hospital. I've just been lazy. But I was at the hospital a couple of weeks ago.
So my sister had something happen again that had previously happened and she went and saw the doctor. The doctor referred her on to someone else which ended up meaning that my sister had to have day surgery the next day.
My mother and I went in with her so that there would be someone to take her home when it was finished. My mother had prior commitments for the afternoon which is why I went too, in case sis was ready while mum had to be elsewhere.
My sister was told to be at the hospital at 10 am so we got there before 10 and she was called to go in to pre op just after 10. Mum told her to leave her bag when she went in.
Just before one my mother checked what was happening with my sister and she hadn't even gone in yet. You see she had been a late adition to the theatre lists so she was gonna be the last on of the day. So my mother decided she should go home and get ready for the afternoon.
I stayed at the hospital for the rest of the afternoon until around 5 and then my mum rang and told me that she found out my sister wouldn't be ready till 7. So I went home and my mum came back in to take her home.
It was a kinda boring day but at least I had my book with me, unlike my poor sister who's book was in her bag which mum had got her to leave with us.

Sherlock.

Wow! we watched this new program/miniseries and thought that it was amazing.
So basically it is a modern day version of good old Sherlock Holmes. The basics are the same as the originally the detective (consulting detective) works with his new friend and room mate, Dr. John Watson, who has come back from Afghanistan. However in this show they use the modern conveniences to help solve the crimes, like mobile phones and modern science. Watson still writes up the stories of Holmes but instead of writing for the papers he writes in his blog.
I just love how they have taken these stories and made them modern but the characters are still them same. It is a much better way in my opinion of making them more palatable for modern audiences than the movie Sherlock Holmes which came out earlier this year.

Qualified!

So you may have picked up that I had finished my Diploma in Library/Information Services. Well yes I did finish it in June. However there was an issue with one subject and I had to resubmit an assessment. This meant that when I recieved my transcript for the last semester I had one deferred result, and therefore the course was not finished.

After the break the teacher marked the resubmitted assessment and told me that I had passed, he told me that he would send it through to the records and get it fixed up. A few weeks later I checked and it had not been fixed. So I sent him an email asking him what had happened and he said he must have stuffed up and he would have to get the head teacher to fix it up. Nothing had happened after a couple of weeks, so I contacted the head teacher about it myself. She said she would get it fixed up and have them send a new transcript. Well it did get fixed up and I waited a couple of weeks and not new transcript came. So I decided to go in and get a copy of my transcript, which I did.

The result of all this is that I am eligible to recieve a Diploma in Library/Information Services with Distinction.

Ben and Radz Wedding.

Well last weekend on Saturday (2 October) my brother Ben got married to the beautiful Radhika (Radz). It was a really great day and I enjoyed it. The brides dress was beautiful. And it was really good to catch up with family members that we don't see that often. 
My sister got to be part of the band and she did a pretty good job. I held up the banner with my older brother, for the couple to run through (I believe that Ben was the only one who ran through it though). The banner said No draws just two winners.

I'm Back.

So once again it has been a while since I have blogged but I'm back now.
So what's been happening you may ask.
Well I have finished my Library Course now. I really enjoyed it learnt lots of interesting things. I also did an industry placement as part of my course at the NSW Teachers Federation Library, Which was really interesting.
So now that I have finished I am now looking for work in a library. There's a bit around but not necessarily that much. But it's interesting seeing what is out there.
