This is my first post and I am going to learn as I go about blogging. I come from humble beginnings so the say, my education has been paid for as far back as matric up to now when I hold Phd in statistical Sciences. It all started when I was standard 10 or 11, I got a letter from the post that although I have passed, i failed to bring my parents after I was accused of stoning a bus at dusk with other boys. The only thing I remember, Sister said to me; "you, I still want to see your parents over the stoning of the bus". I recalled that all boys who allegedly stoned the bus had been called to the office and I was not one of them and my name was never mentioned! So I took it that one day the principal will officially call me to office and ask me about the bus or ask me to go home and bring the parents etc.
Having been expelled from school, the first day of school I went to look for work. Home was c.100km away from school. As i was walking, my German teacher came out of nowhere and said' "David, why are you not at school"? I told him I am expelled. He was furious, and he said to me, pack you clothes and go to school tomorrow. I expected that the principal would still want to see me first. So i took my cousin (my parents were both absent). We headed straight to the principal office. The principal couldn't look us in the eys, she simply said, "i had asked this boy to bring his parents because they stoned a bus and he didn't bring them" That's it! And next I was allocated a class. Since then every German family looked after my needs including school fees. I will leave this part unfinished or for another day...
I got to univeristy after my matric,At varsity, I was miraculously rescued by other expatriates when our family financial resources were falling short. Then I got to honours and my fees was also paid for this time by different people who encouraged me to enrol. Later, at different univisrsty, my British co-supervisor said to me, "the money for this this van and your susbsitence was donated by a British woman who upon her passing suggested that the money be given to conservation in Africa and not her family. It was a huge funding! My PhD was paid for five years after my Msc too. This time i didn't want to do Phd but there were people paying!
The question is, could I have been unconciously applying the law of attraction?
