Right now I have a chance at achieving a dream of mine. You know when just before you go to sleep you think about all the things you’d completely love in life but yet feel they are literally ‘just a dream’ thoughts and non achievable - well I have a chance of achieving mine, for once on my life. I entered a competition not giving it a second thought that anything will happen with it - overall the years I’ve learnt to just expect the worse. But this time, the worst is to be beaten out of sight as my application has been uploaded. I am also the only applicant by the looks of it so far. This giving me more hope of a chance of winning but also glumness in the thought that perhaps the competition that has been giving me hope every day for the part two months may be withdrawn due to not enough applicants. If your reading this then please please help give me a chance of achieving a dream I thought never achievable and potentially turning my life around forever. Please please if you have a minute could you click on the uk Le cordon Bleu 2013 scholarship award page click on my video and click the vote button. You certainly don’t have to watch the whole video (it’s a little cringey) but it would be great if you could vote for it. THANK YOU. (:
Does the world expect you to just be born knowing what you want to do in life? I’m one of the minority who has absolutely no idea, well, that’s not strictly true; I have plenty of ideas; things I think I could do, however when I come round to trying to explore those options then they are usually unexplorable. Homelessness is something I feel strongly about getting involved in. Living in Cornwall we disgustingly only have one 24 hour shelter and one night shelter. Two shelters to cover Cornwalls entire homeless population. With winter round the corner this really makes me sad. What about the chap who can’t afford to take a bus to get help at a shelter. What does he do? I could be that person one day - I doubt anyone ever expected to get into such a sad situation. I wanted to volunteer and help out at the closest shelter [Shelter in Plymouth] but it seems nowadays it’s all paper applications and endless amounts of waiting. Why can’t I just jump in and lend some time, like people used to; help in anyway physically possible. My choices given on the website are either in the charity shop or office. Why can’t I give a friendly smile on the frontline? A cup of tea some warm clothes anything. I was greatly disappointed in this tonight. But then, I am left mostly disappointed in general when it comes to volunteering. It would simply take too much time for me to explore all my career interests by volunteering in the modern world dominated by rules, regulations and pen pushing.
