Miss britza - art teacher Favourite food? ICECREAM!!!!!!!! – ultimately a ‘Macca’s Mcflurry’ with m&m’s and extra chunky oreo’s mixed in! ..HEAVENLY! #1 song on iPod? hmmm.. I know that if I mentioned anything from ‘One Direction’ I’d make my Yr 9 Health girls proud ;) but truthfully, right at this moment, it’s ‘With Shivering Hearts We Wait’ by BLINDSiDE.

WALL•E...So my best friend would be an indestructible cockroach and I’d get to collect little ‘treasures’ from people’s thrown out JUNK.. while I lived on a planet all to myself making mini trash-squashed-squares for building and sitting on. What’s your favourite genre of movie? I love a brilliantly filmed action flick. With HOT choreography and a clever script. I love seeing a girl who can tough it out with the best of them. (Should you so desire to see my attempt of being a SUPERHERO in a Short Stop-motion Uni Film I edited and added some lame effects to – we only had ONE day to film and edit this!! ..then you may check it out at the link below) https://vimeo.com/26508361 ‘THE EXTREMAS’ What’s the best quote you’ve ever heard? “Everyone seems normal.. until you get to know them”. What do you think your students are thinking when you’re talking? Umm ..I would like to think that they are thinking about how smart I am ! ..? But the likelihood is probably more closer to.. “Please Miss B, keep talking. I always yawn when I am interested” If you had 3 wishes what would you wish for? World peace, saving the whales and being able to dance in High-heels (Ok that was my ‘Beauty Contestant’ answer) But in reality I’d firstly…Wish for an infinity of wishes, then spread the love from there.. coz who really needs that many wishes all to themselves and world peace of course If you could travel to space where would you go? As in does space now offer holidaying destinations?? I thought when you went to Space.. that was it.. you went to.. Space!? Umm I guess I could hang out in the Milky Way for a bit and get full. My favourite are the strawberry-fluffy-centred Milkyways! What’s your best joke? Q: Why did the beetroot blush? (ANSWER is at the bottom of the page) Silliest prank you have ever pulled on someone? Umm I don’t wanna give away any brilliant ideas to my students.. being the respectable role model that I am ;) But.. as a prank to get even with my sister one time for eating MY whole packet of Oreo biscuits. I bought another packet and scraped out the cream of the first few biscuits and filled them with toothpaste instead. Then left the open packet in my bedroom to wait to see if I could catch her out. Let’s just say she didn’t need to brush her teeth later that night. What would be your best advice to give the graduating Year 12’s? You have the capacity to learn from your mistakes. So be happy to know you will be learning EVERY DAY! ! Have fun! If you only had 24 hours to live what would you do? Watch one whole season of ‘24’ – so it totally felt like I was watching it in real time.. ? That’s pretty lame though.. I don’t even like that show! … maybe someone could kindly offer me a better suggestion? (Just in case my last 24 hours are revealed to me soon – I’m going to be sooo bored!)

Anonymous Blog As I sat there on my big comfy chair in my cosy lounge room on a typical Saturday night, I began to think about what I might write for this edition of ‘The Journey of Radical Minds’. After a few hours I still hadn’t written anything, and the battery on my laptop was starting to die. It was in that moment that an intense debate fueled by laziness quickly erupted in my mind. Was it really worth getting out of my chair, losing my comfy spot and having to walk all the way to my room to get my laptop charger? And in that moment I knew exactly what to write about – ‘First World Problems.’ I’m assuming most of you hip young teens would know of the ‘First world Problems’ hash tag which has recently taken over many social networking sites such as Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Take for example a ‘tweet’ I saw yesterday morning from a friend of mine “I’m so hungry and there’s no food in this house – but I don’t want to trek it to the shops in this heat!” accompanied by the hash tag #firstworldproblems. As I read this, I came to a sudden realisation that so many people of the first world take so much for granted. There he was ‘tweeting’ from his computer in his big air conditioned house, complaining about what he doesn’t have – when really he only has to walk five minutes down the road to the store to get what he wants! I guess I shouldn’t point fingers – we’ve all done it at some point or another. But this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t appreciate what we have. Instead of always complaining about what we don’t have, maybe it is time that we were thankful for what we do have. In a rich and prosperous country like Australia where so many people have everything they need, don’t you think we should be the last ones to complain? There are millions of men, women and children starving in third world countries within Africa and other parts of the world every day – many of them go to sleep wondering if they’ll eat or drink at all the next day in order to live. The harsh reality is that many of them don’t ever live to see the next day – and still we sit here complaining about petty ‘problems’ that aren’t really problems at all! So next time you find yourself complaining about what you don’t have, take a step back and think about everything you do have.
