About a few years ago I had this deep desire in me, one was to be a contestant on the program Noot vir Noot and the other was to go in an aeroplane.
One day I just decided that I'm gonna stop dreaming and just take a chance. I then sent Noot vir Noot an email in order to go for an audition. I was told that I should be at The City Lodge in Grand West and also have some music knowledge, which I have. The day finally came and I went for the audition, but when I saw the crowd I thought "my oh my, I don't stand a chance".
Nevertheless being the person that I am I thought I have nothing to lose. I was so excited to meet Johan Stemmet and his crew as this was my dream for years. We then did the audition and I could'nt wait to get done as I thought I just made a fool of myself. Before we left we were told if they didn't contact us in a month's time we didn't qualify, but if they did we would be a contestant on the program.
Exactly a month later as I was about to leave work I received a call, to my surprise the lady on the other side says that she's calling from Noot vir Noot. Immediately my legs went numb and I'm thinking "what on earth did I get myself into". Anyway it took some time for me to absorb all this as I knew that I would appear on National Television. In the same time I would also be flying in an aeroplane for the very first time......I killed two birds with one stone....Just goes to show that whatever we ask God, He will make what we think is impossible, possible....So just believe!!!!!

Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge.
The man with a clear conscience probably has a poor memory.
Fight any instinct to be humourless. for humourlessness is the worst of all absurdities.
Look up to the sky- you'l never never find rainbows if you're looking down.
We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.

I have always heard about this "Twitter" that everybody has been ranting and raving about and wondered what on on earth is this.......well, I felt like a twitter nerd whenever my friends boasted about all of them doing this "tweeting" thing. Not want to feel like a nerd anymore, I decided to best start doing some research on Twitter....yes at least I know how to do online research so I am not that dense.

Mmmmm....upon researching, I saw this cute little birdie and I thought yayyyy!!!!, no wonder people talk about tweeting, because it is your way of COMMUNICATING little birdie and mind you, your little chirping is what wakes me up most mornings. Now the origin of Twitter I read, was through the "brainstorming of a group of board members from a company by the name of Odeo. On wandering further into my research, I discovered that the this form of communication via Social Media, became so popular that its usage increases on a daily basis and people are just tweeting back and forth...my word!!! However, you are restricted to only 140 characters, no problem I thought to myself, I can do that. The service is free... Mmmm, I like freebies so this I am definitely giving a try. There is quite some interesting people I would like to start following on Twitter, so you guys better watch out, this so-called nerd is going to get there!!!!
