Investigating Me

Rhiannon Nicholls

School Subjects.

English: Unlike most people, English has been one of my favorite subjects for as long as I can remember. I've had a passion for stating my opinion and using correct spelling and grammar for a lot longer than everyone else I know. So I find English classes to be quite enjoyable.

Performance: I really enjoy dancing for a lot of reasons. I'm the type of person who finds it very hard to stay still, I enjoy moving around and dancing is a good way to manage those urges. Although I'm not a very good dancer, I still enjoy having a go and learning new things.

Shoot & Score: One of my biggest passions is making videos, so this class is great for me and I really enjoy it. It helps me to learn to new things about videos and editing as well as obviously adapting my skills with things I already knew.

Metals: I did this class for one semester and in the beginning I was very nervous because it involves the kind of thing that I've never experienced. I didn't think I'd be able to do anything in this class and I didn't think I'd know anything, but I surprised myself and picked up some brand new skills and had a lot of fun.

Drama: I did a drama class for a semester in year seven and in year nine and although I didn't actually choose these classes, I ended up enjoying them. It was a great experience and it gave me useful tips for my videos.


YouTube: I really enjoy making videos and uploading them to my YouTube account "TheRhiannonNicholls". I record, edit and upload all of my videos myself and I really enjoy doing this. Although my laziness often gets in the way of doing this to the best of my ability.

Dancing: I have only ever had dancing lessons twice, when I was very young and they were both for completely different types of dancing styles. Ballet and hip-hop. I enjoyed both, but I don't really fancy professional dancing despite choosing it for an elective two years in a row. I enjoy just mucking around with dancing, having fun and not having to focus on a set out routine.

Singing: Ever since I was young I've always had a love for singing. I'm not the best at it, but that doesn't stop me from blasting out some tunes at any chance I get. It's just such a fun thing to do and it's a great way to enhance or change my mood entirely.

Gaming: Following in my twenty year old brother's footsteps, gaming has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up around him and all of his computer games and xbox games and I began to love them. And to this day I really enjoy most types of gaming, mostly killing games though.

Eating: I really enjoy eating, but when  say that I don't really mean all food. Because I'm the pickiest person when it comes to meals, but when I find something I do enjoy the taste of I quite enjoy eating when  I can.

Sleeping: Like most teenagers I really do love my sleep. But as ironic as it is, I don't really sleep as much as I should. It's sort of a love/hate relationship we have going on. It's like this, I don't want to go to bed, but I want to sleep. And I want to sleep, but I don't want to get up. If that makes any sense.

Camping: My family and I have been going camping every single year since I was literally born and because of this it's become a huge part of my life. I always look forward to my annual camping trip. Getting away from everything and everyone for a little bit and enjoying nature.

Adventuring: As corny as this sounds, it's very true. There will always be this childish part of me that simply loves exploring new places. Even if it's just finding some old woods and exploring it with a couple of friends.

Reading: I really enjoy reading books as it's a good was to escape reality and explore an entire new world. I love the detail that goes into writing a book and I really admire authors for that.

Swimming: In my earlier years I think I finished swimming lessons at least five times, if not more. We had to do them over and over in Primary School regardless of if we'd already done it or not. And after a while it really annoyed me and I got sick of it, but I do still enjoy the basics of swimming. Just going out to a beach or a pool and relaxing with some friends. So not professional racing swimming, but chilled out, relaxed swimming.

Personal Skills.

Computers: I have grown up around computers and all sorts of technology all of my life and now have a broad understanding of the many ways in which to use these machines.

Humor: I have been told by many people that I am quite a funny person. From what I can assume that is fairly true. I think I just have a way of making the people around me laugh and smile, which is something I'm really proud of.

Advice: Something I really enjoy doing is helping people when they're having a difficult time, I like giving them advice and supporting them. I've also been told by a lot of people that I'm fairly good at giving people advice as I have a good way with my words.

People: I very much enjoy meeting new people. It's odd but I'm very good at talking to people whom I don't even know compared to people I slightly know.

Teamwork: I am usually pretty good at working in a team. I often enjoy it a lot more than working on my own, unless of course the rest of the team is unhelpful and I have to take charge, that really aggravates me.

Communication: I have fairly good communication skills in most situations, I can control and maintain a conversation for long periods of time without the subject going off track.

Employability Skills.

Leadership: I am the type of person who prefers to be in charge and taking control of a situation instead of standing back and being told what to do. This can be a good thing and a bad thing, depending on what the situation is. Although I am quite capable of adapting myself to whatever is necessary.

Confidence: I am a very confident person in the strangest of situations, I am very comfortable with speaking to new people, but at times can find it very hard to speak to people who I actually know.

Hardworking: I'm the kind of person who will put 100%  into any task that I'm given, or none at all. I will always do my best to make sure things are at a good standing and I will always put in a good effort to make that happen.

Perfectionist: I myself am a bit of a perfectionist with most things. In some cases this can be awful and frustrating. But when it comes to school work and important things like that, it can come in handy. I will always try my best to make sure things are done to absolute perfection. I can't even handle something not being entirely perfect.

Organised: I am a very organised person with most things, especially with online things such as work. This is very useful considering that day by day the schooling and work industries begin to revolve more around computers and less around book work and things like that. Online learning keeps things easier for me to access and maintain.

Understanding:  I like to think that I have a very wide and broad understanding of most things and especially people. I'm very open to both sides of every situation and taking all perspectives into consideration.
