The 18th October was Dyspraxia Awareness Day. Here are 5 posts/blogs helping raise awareness.
Dear 15 Year Old Me
Two quick heads up over the next few months:
- You will play cricket match against Ampleforth College a few weeks before the school holidays. When you bat it will get very dark. A ball will come at you like a missile from the big fast bowler, DO NOT try and hook it ….. just get out of the way of the ball. It will hurt…..
- You will go to a Youth Club party. DO NOT drink the smuggled in Thunderbird Cider. It’s not big and it’s not clever. A bit like the above cricket, your head will hurt for days.
That new science teacher you have just met, he was a happy sole. Just ignore him when he laughed at you for wanting to become an Astronomer, just like Carl Sagan. Tell the teacher to stick his Bunsen Burner up his backside. Save up the money and buy that telescope.
If you can find two Bunsen burners, save one for the Career Advisor. When you say you want to go to University ignore the rubbish he comes out with about no one from around here goes there. Stick to your guns and go to college. If the so called advisor got his way everybody would have been sent to work at either the Chemical Works or British Steel. Just because you live in a poor area and go to a poor school does not stop you from dreaming. *** By the way, the whole British Steel plant gets closed down in a few years.
When you meet that special person. Seize every minute of every day. Enjoy it. You just never know what fate has in store.
