LIFE IN AUSTRALIA

Life in Australia is not the same as I expected when I was still in Africa. I thought that after I have arrived in Australia, I will live a happy life.As I arrived , I faced cultural diversity problems such as new  language,dressing style, education system, food, public transport and all other life components. Every thing is done by following time. For example in Africa someone can decide to meet the doctor at any time and day he wishes. But this is not possible in Australia. First of all before you meet the doctor, you need to call and ask for an appointment. This results to someone being a slave of time.
Employment is one of the big challenges which I am encountering. Education and working experience I used to have in Africa is not relevant in Australian societies.Therefore, I am unemployed which makes me to live a poor and miserable life I  have never lived before.The government is pushing me find job. This a good idea but the employment policies in Australia are favoring those people with working experience in  Australia. I am not happy with such discriminatory policies. If  people are not employed and work for a certain period of time: Where will they obtain working experience? Are they going to wait until all experienced workers have retired? This question contribute a lot of anger in my mind. But I believe that, this problem will end since everything has got it`s end.

If I gave you a large sum of money and told you,"This is a gift for you ", You would probably say, "Thank you very much. "
But if ,after that,I added, "To receive this gift, you will have to work for me fifty hours " What would you think then? Perhaps you would say to yourself, "He is not offering me a gift, but wages. " And you would be right.We do not earn gifts, we can only accept them.
The gift s we receive are in reality expressions of the love that other persons have have for us.If we have to work to receive the gift,we tend to doubt the sincerity of their love. A gift ,by definition,is free.That `s why the Bible says, "The free gift of God is internal life ." [Romans 6:23]

MY IMAGINARY DREAM

It is not easy to believe on this imaginary dream I used to dream before I come on earth:"When I was young I dreamed of changing the World.But I discovered the World would not change.So I decided to change only my

country.But my country would not change.
When I was older I decided to change only my family and those closest to me.But also ,they too resisted change.In my old age I suddenly realized:if only I had changed myself first! By example I would have changed my family,friends and colleagues.With their support I may have been able able to change my country,and who knows,I may have even changed the world"
Welcome for your lovely comments.

The weakness of education system in Tanzania

The education system in Tanzania is  characterized by a number of weaknesses.One of the big weaknesses is a lack of computer technology from  primary school up to high school. Students start to use computers when they join university studies. I am one of the students who experienced such educational weakness in this world of science and technology. As I joined Australian Catholic University at Strathfield campus, I started blaming myself: why did I finish my high school in such a poor education system?
