It could happen to you ......

Hello friends, hope you are fine, as I believe that anyone should have confident in himself I never doubt about I could be wrong!!!!
today a funny thing happened to me, I was talking with Luke skinner we kept talking & talking ,for about 30 minutes & I thought he is another Luke , then he said that he will be right back to me , to help his mom with her shopping , I said WOW you came back to USA I didn't know that , congratulations ,after one second he said Sunshine , I am in Australia , I got surprised & said "really ? , you went to Australia , wow ", I didn't doubt that he might be someone else , I thought he was only making fun of me !!!( that is the confident I was talking about)!!!...
Then I realized that it was Luke skinner & not the other Luke (too late, too smart)…
At that time I felt sooooooooooooooooo much embarrassed, he said that he will tell gee-oh &that he might write a post about that, I said , oh noooooooooo please don't !
After that I had to go because the electricity was out of work (as usual), he thought that I was angry from him! He kept saying "no don't go, I am joking, I won't tell gee-oh ", hehehhe Luke I am not angry from you, that was very funny ….
As you know that we have exams almost everyday, but what you don't know is I feel terrified from the exams ,that I don't take my breakfast , or sleep well at night ,& I suffer from nausea !!( I know I know like my mom always say "chicken , chicken"), but I feel so because we don't have enough time to answer & the teacher keep saying "HURRY UP , TIME IS OVER " one day I was out of my mind that I wrote my sister's name instead of mine on the exam's paper !!.
Once I kept searching for the TV remote control , I didn't find it ,& it was the time of my favorite serial , I kept saying" WHERE IS THE REMOTE ? WHO TOOK IT ? IT IS MY TURN TO WATCH TV" My mom kept laughing ,she said "it is in your hand!" It happens to me all the time … I have more & more examples about self confident but for my prestige I won't talk about them in public….
See I have a humor sense.. (Grandpa I forgot to worn you to put away your cup of coffee, I hope nothing tragic happened to your keyboard)
Ok , that is the end of my post today …….
Stay safe, & always make sure that you are talking with the right person..
Sunshine …………..

LOL, Sunshine! I have chatted with people for quite awhile thinking they were someone else! I just forget which nickname is which person sometimes :D

This was a very funny post! Thank you for sharing it!

As a plaque in my parents' kitchen says, "Those who can laugh at themselves will never cease to be amused."

That made me laugh out loud!

Hello from Houston again Sunshine. I am a retired teacher so I know how much students can agonize over a test. Would you believe that at my age (old enough to be your Grandfather) that I still have bad dreams (actually nightmares) where I am taking a test for which I am completely unprepared.
So welcome to the group (very large) of those who suffer occasional test anxiety.
Just prepare for the test, relax and don't worry!!! (Much easier said then done.) And also remember that this test will NOT be the most important event in your life even if it seems that way.
Continued best wishes to you and your family for better living conditions and much happiness.

Sunshine, your post about the tests reminded me of a joke I heard about a student taking a test at an American college. In our colleges, the classes for some subjects are often quite large (200-300 students in some cases). The professors often only know their students in these classes only by their name on the attendance list.

Once in one of these classes, they were taking a test. The professor warned them that their time was almost up. With one minute left he told them "Hurry and finish and write your name on your paper, you have one minute left!". All the students frantically tried to finish except one young man who kept writing casually. A minute later, the professor said "ok, pencils down, time is up! Turn in your papers at the front. I won't accept any papers turned in late."

All the students except the one young man got up and began stacking their test papers on the professor's desk, while the young man continued writing on his test. The professor walked over to him and said "young man I said to stop writing. Put your pencil down and turn in your test now or I won't accept your test paper!"

The young man nodded and continued writing for nearly another minute, before writing his name at the top of the paper and walking over to the stack of papers on the professor's desk. By then, the professor was furious and said "NO, you didnot stop when I told you to, I won't accept your test paper!"

The young man turned and asked "Do you have any idea who I am professor?" The professor said "No I don't know who you are, and I don't care who you are."

"Good" the young man said, and then he stuck his test paper deep into the middle of the stack of tests on the professor's desk and walked away...

Too bad your classes are so small or maybe you could try it some day...:D

Merry Christmas Sunshine!

Oh Yes,

I lost my hat once.
Looked all over for it.
Could not find it anywhere.
My wife started laughing.
She said look in the mirror.
So I did.
Gee, how did my hat get in the mirror.

I love your Blog,

Best Wishes,
Don From Dallas

That's not a joke...I've known people like that and envied them.

You should not be so afraid of taking tests. Study, get a good night's rest and eat a good breakfast the day of the test and you will do well. I hear that chewing gum during a test helps you to concentrate.

ahahahahaha =) yes it was funny :D

By the way, it Santa Claus - not Clues- :)

Claus is pronounced like Claws (on a cats paw for example)

your sence of humour is great =) and I am pleased to see you notice your faults and your pride.

Your pride is a good thing, do not loose it but do be wary of it :)

Also, when it comes to exams I have a trick for you! I will tell you in YAHOO.

Hi Sunshine, I've seen your blog for the last few weeks. I think this was very funny. All of us at one time or another loses items. You are a brave girl, Sunshine. I admire your tenacity. Happy New Year!!!!!!

Sunshine, you are delightful. You make me smile and remind me that young people are the same the world over. As an adult, it is our duty to protect your youthful innocence. I wish only the best for you. My granddaughter has a pair of socks just like yours.

Sunshine, I love reading your posts! I have a son, who is 20. I wish he could meet you when you are 18 (I guess he would be 24 by then! He likes girls and has many friends who are girls, but has no special "girl-friend" yet. He is an athlete. He runs far distances on a team of a US university. He is a very good young man, and cares for the world. He is charitable, sponsoring an orphan, sending money every month to a foreign country to help an orphan. He reminds me of my own father, who did not marry until he was 27. My father was the kindest man in our town. I think my son has much to learn at his U.S. university before he thinks about a wife and family. I hope when he does, he finds someone like you: passionate, intelligent, fun, ambitious, and most of all, a good person who loves good people. Happy new year to you and the ones you love! I wish you all well!

Love, an American Mom

give the girl a break on Santa Claus Lukey. English is very difficult to learn and Sunshine's english is great!
If I had a red pen I'd circle the three spelling mistakes in Lukey's comment ;)
love the other mum
