First I better say sorry for writing so late but I just got busy. It’s probably because I have been working at a golf course this whole week and it’s been really fun. I honestly thought it wouldn’t be that good for me but it was even though I did a couple of mistakes like blowing leaves into the bunkers and driving over the greens. Heck, I don’t even know how golf works. Anyway apart from some mistakes, it seems like a really enjoyable job. Just a shame that I wasn’t able to hand in a resume to them. The only concern I have about golf courses is that you can be hit unconscious anywhere with a golf ball. Like I wasn’t in front of the tee (I was on the side of it) and someone just hits a golf ball towards me that I felt the wind go past my right ear. Like there seems like there’s a lot people who think they can play golf but they can’t. There was a time earlier in the week where we were off the fairway and a women was whistling at us to move. I have no idea why as the golf hole wasn’t even in that direction.
People even suck at driving things like golf buggies. There was this person who was driving one and drove it straight into another vehicle. It took him a couple of times to actually figure out how to drive the thing lol. This makes me think do people suck at aiming? Like seriously how can they miss? Oh well I guess people are just getting worse at aiming lol. At least I didn’t end up in hospital or anything. Ok, that sounds a be dramatic, but then I’ve never been hit in the head with a golf ball. However I have been hit in the nose with a basketball that made my nose bleed. During my primary school years my nose just seemed to be very sensitive. Every time something hit it, it started bleeding. Like I always ended up going to the sick bay to get tissues. Thankfully my nose seems a lot stronger than what it was already.
If it wasn’t strong, It probably would’ve been punched in this week. Like besides working at a golf course, I went crazy on Facebook. I was saying things that I probably shouldn’t even mention. I sort of need to learn that people just don’t get my sense of humor the same way I don’t get there’s. I have this condition called aspergers syndrome. And no, I don’t tear down walls, swear like a trooper, ect. I only just have a mild version of it but it affects me a lot at times than can get me into trouble.
The problem is that most people just don’t understand what it’s like to have it. Just this week in the news I hear of this teenager with aspergers who was handed a homemade golf ball bomb that exploded in his hands. He ended up losing a lot of his fingers as the result of the blast. As he was doing was trading cigarettes with his so called friends. Like what get’s me the most is that he was trading cigarettes. Like I’m just clueless to why he was trading them. Though that still doesn’t give his friends the right to throw him a homemade bomb. Hopefully something happens to make these kids regret what they have done. I’m just sick of hearing about all these bad stories of kids tortured from other kids. It just needs to stop. Sadly I can’t change anything but just talk about it.
I just wish everyone was friendly to each other but unfortunately it doesn’t seem like it will happen that way. Everyone just get’s angry at each other instead of trying to resolve their issues together.
Wow it’s been a long week (well not exactly). It all started on Saturday last week when my right ear suddenly got blocked. I could hear anything out of it and it was really annoying me. So I went to the chemist and got ear drops for it. The person at the chemist seemed to give me a weird look as if I purposely pushed the earwax into my ear canal (as If I would do that lol). Anyway I tried out the ear drops and they basically did nothing but put a liquid into my ear which just came out when I tilt my head.
The next day I got so annoyed that I went to a doctor. But it wasn’t my doctor, it was a random. My family has been trying to look for a doctor in our area for ages and haven’t been able to really find one. Originally our family doctor was working in our area but decided to move like 15 – 30 minutes away from us. The other problem is that you sit in a waiting room for like 1 hour now catching everyone else’s viruses. We never used to have to wait an hour for a doctor. So yeah we’ve been looking for doctors recently and came across this place which was booked out until the next day. Like I never heard of a medical centre as a restaurant before. Like seriously how can it be booked out? Does anyone actually make regular bookings with their doctors? They couldn’t even give us a reference to another medical clinic so we had to go and ask the chemist next door. After getting details of this other place, we went to it and it ended up that they didn’t bulk bill. Bulk bill is basically where the government pays for your visit than you having to pay for it. It ended up that they were going to charge us $97 to see a doctor. Like that’s a rip off! Seriously who would pay that much to just see someone? At least the receptionist was nice enough to give us a reference to a clinic that does bulk billing.
So I eventually ended up getting to see a doctor. He noticed what the problem was with my right ear and started using an ear syringe to get rid of the wax. The worrying bit was that the tool that he usually uses wasn’t working so he had to use a different one on me. It actually didn’t feel that well. I felt warm water going up through my ear and then suddenly it seemed unblocked. I told the doctor but he just kept going and then my ear went back to being blocked. He still wasn’t pleased with how much wax was in there that he just kept insisting to flush it out. All that ended up coming out was dirty water, not really wax. He was going like this for 15 minutes and then suddenly my vision went blurry and I blacked out. Like I think he was doing it way too much that it was getting to my brain! So I simply laid on the bed and said it felt better even though it was still blocked. But I must admit he did seem like he didn’t know what he was doing. I was getting worried that my ear was stuffed and wouldn’t work ever again.
Then Monday came and I still had a blocked right ear. It got extremely annoying because I had TAFE and had to tell everyone about my ear, that I couldn’t hear them. So that night I ended up trying the ear drops again and that still didn’t work. Though Tuesday it was a bit better, but not 100%. I ended up deciding that I should just go and see the family doctor. Well I’m glad that I did that because within 2 goes, he got blocks of the ear wax out and I was able to hear out of the ear again! So I guess the moral of this story is to just see your family doctor and not a random because they simply won’t know how to fix your problem lol. But it’s also harder to get a doctor these days just from my experience of searching and searching.
At least my ear was fixed before the excursion I had with my TAFE on Thursday. I went to the Mansfield Propagation Nursery which is located in Skye. We basically had a tour of the whole place and it was interesting of how they propagate the plants just from leaf cuttings. It was only a half day excursion, so we had a different teacher at the end of the day. Basically with this teacher all we’ve been doing is looking and maintaining a chainsaw. We haven’t actually been able to use the chain saws until this day. At first it was a bit scary but in the end it wasn’t that bad. Though we couldn’t chop anything up as there wasn’t any wood.
At least this week wasn’t that bad. My right ear got better and I was able to hear the word “job”. I’ve just been sick of not having one. So last night I went crazy and applied anywhere like Red Rooster, Muffin Break and Woolworths. I just want a job lol. I’ve been looking for over a year and still can’t get one. Hopefully one day I get one. During next week I’m actually doing work experience. I’m looking forward to it but at the same time, I’m a bit nervous. At least I was able to meet the employer today and he seemed really friendly.
I guess that’s it of what I have to say, though I may start adding the pages back of the old bengollow.com over the weekend.
