Mä tulin Suomeen 7v sitten Englannista. Se oli vaikea ja hidasti, löysin Rakas ja tuli 2 vauvaa. Älkoin koulu ensimmäinen kertaa noin v2013, se oli Suomen kieli kurssi, ja mä Opiskelin hidasti ja se oli vaikea, kun se kurssi oli valmis mä tarvitsin olla kotona vauvan kans koska mun puoliso haluaisin mennä töihin, niin teen tämä paljon, mutta koska olin kotona, mä Opiskelin Suomenkieli todella hidasti. Sitten toinen vauva tuli, mä menin toinen kielikurssin ja sitten olin kotona tääs, sama aikana mulla oli paljon terveys ongelmia niin olin keskussairaalassa paljon, mulla ei aikaa opiskella…
2018, me eroi, yksi lapsi meni äidin kans ja yksi asuu minua kans, nyt he ovat päiväkodissa niin minulla oli aikaa, menin takaisin kouluun ja annoin 100%.
Tänään, minulla oli ohjaus opettajan kans, ja viimi viikona meillä oli paljon kielikoe, niin hän sanoi mun kielitaso, se mene noin:
A1. 1 (huono kieli) A1. 2 A1.3 A2.1 A2.2 B1.1 B1.2 (Sujuva)
Puhuminen B1. 1 Lukeminen B1. 1 Kirjoitaminen B1. 1 Kunteleminen B1. 2
Olen oikeasti iloinen, tottakai minulla on vielä lisää että tarvitsen oppia, mutta nyt minulla on tämä kielitaso, mä voin mennä Ammattikorkeakouluun tai töihin. Se otti 4v koulussa ja 7v Suomessa.
Mä vain haluaisin jakaa tässä koska olen ylpeä!
Back in April, The Good Wife star Julianna Marguiles stirred up some drama after she came forward about CBS not wanting to pay her for what she’s worth in order to guest star on The Good Fight, which is a spinoff of Margulies’ show.
I wasn’t asking for a million dollars. I wasn’t asking for $500,000 an episode. I was asking for what I got paid on ‘The Good Wife.’ So a spinoff of my show, to play a character that created that show, was asking for what she should get paid. And it wasn’t asking for the moon. I could have asked for the moon. I didn’t.
I’m not a guest star. You don’t pay me a guest-star salary. I would get a guest-star salary if I went and did ‘SVU’ — it’s not my show. I wouldn’t ask for what I got paid as Alicia Florrick. I also know for a fact that any male star that was asked to come on a spinoff of their show would have been offered at least $500,000.
It was a bit of a slight about the network, and considering they gave Margulies The Good Wife in the first place, some wondered why she’d be so harsh towards them. However, Margulies didn’t see it that way. In fact, she says it’s about knowing her own value. She says the decision to speak out wasn’t difficult.
“Why am I protecting CBS? I said yes, they said no,” she told SiriusXM in a new interview. “I started talking about it and said I wanted to do it. They were twisting it that I didn’t want to be on the show and that I didn’t think I was good enough. I watch the show; I love the show! But I’m not a guest star.”
“We live now in a world where equal pay is a very important platform for all of us women who do everything in high heels and backwards to what men do,” she said. “I love men, but it’s gotta stop. I am in an enviable position in that I can walk away from a job. I know how lucky I am.”
Margulies acknowledged that she didn’t come to this decision on her own, and that she took direction from another Hollywood star.
“It’s like the letter Jennifer Lawrence wrote when she found out about ‘American Hustle.’ She said, ‘I did a disservice to my fellow actresses and I shouldn’t have done that.’ And I thought she was so brave for writing that letter,” Margulies said. “So I thought, I’ve gotta speak up, because it’s crazy to me that CBS wouldn’t honor that.”
Even though she knows that speaking out was the right thing to do, Margulies did speak about hearing the negative comments towards what she did.
“You have to value your worth,” she explained. “For the people who get angry when they hear me say, They weren’t paying me what I’m worth, think a little harder because this really isn’t about me at all. This is about every other actress who doesn’t have the voice or power to be able to say that. A spinoff of my show, to play a character that created that show, was asking what she should get paid.”
Margulies made it clear that now, the ball is in CBS’ court.
“If they were to ask me to go back on The Good Fight paying me what my salary is, in a heart beat.,” she said. “Of course. I always would have.”
I have a feeling that all of this drama is going to but a wrench of those plans of returning, but who knows? Maybe they can work things out.
Do you think Margulies did the right thing?
Fans of The Voice got some sad news this week when Adam Levine, who has been a coach on the show for 16 seasons since the show started, announced that he would be leaving the singing competition.
Levine has coached three contestants to winning the show: Javier Colon in season one, Tessanne Chin in season five, and Jordan Smith in season 9. The Maroon 5 frontman posted about his decision on Instagram in a lengthy post.
About 8 years ago, Mark Burnett convinced us to sign up for this show where you sit in a big red chair with your back turned away from the singers on the stage. First thank you must go to Mark. ❤️ We had no idea what we were doing or where it was going. After the first day of shooting, I sat there, stunned. I said to myself “theres some magic here. Something is definitely happening.” It went on to be a life shaping experience that will be close to my heart forever.
Thank you NBC for signing me up. I am truly honored to have been a part of something I’ll always cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you to every single coach I ever sat in those chairs with. That is shared experience that is singularly ours. We have that for life.
Thank you to everyone who supported this long strange and amazing left turn into a place I never thought I’d go. Thank you Carson Daly for babysitting the musicians and making sure our shoes were tied and we had our lunch boxes. You are the backbone of this thing and we appreciate you more than you know.
Audrey, thank you for being perhaps the most patient person in all the free world. 4 musicians all at once is a lot. Sainthood is imminent. Thank you to Paul Mirkovich and the band for their ridiculously hard work and learning more songs than maybe any band ever. 😂
Thank you to the people behind the scenes who do the real work and make this machine hum. To the amazingly talented vocalists who competed on the show and blew my mind on a daily basis.
And, BLAKE F[***]IN’ SHELTON. I couldn’t hide my love for you if I tried. Seriously. I tried. Can’t do it. Our friendship is and always will be one for the books. Whatever this whole surreal experience was, Im just happy I got to experience it with you. You’re my brother for life.
Kelly and John, take care of the cowboy and I’m sure I’ll be back to say hi very very soon. So much love to you both. And lastly, to all of the loyal voice fans, there’s literally no show without you guys. For me, it was time to move on.
Your support has meant EVERYTHING. And Lastly, I’d like to thank my manager Jordan for convincing me to take that meeting. 😊 What an amazing ride. Thank you all so much. ❤️Adam
Some of Levine’s fellow coaches posted words of encouragement for the father of two/
“Found out last night about @adamlevine leaving The Voice & while I get that he’s been doing the show 4 a while & wants to step away, it will be weird showing up 4 work & he’s not there,” Kelly Clarkson wrote. “To start an amazing show from the ground up is a big deal!”
“Having a hard time wrapping my head around @adamlevine not being at @NBCTheVoice anymore,” Blake Shelton, another original coach, wrote. “After 16 seasons that changed both of ours lives. I only found out about this yesterday and it hasn’t set in on me yet. Gonna miss working with that idiot.”
“There will never,” Jennifer Hudson wrote. “Be another you that’s for sure ! You are madly loved and truly missed ! Love u Adam!”
“He’ll always be a cherished member of The Voice family,” host Carson Daly said. Daly praised Levine for “inspiring many of the artists who he worked so closely with over the years. Of course, we wish him nothing but the best.”
Now the big question, of course, is who will end up replacing Levine on the judging panel. The official Twitter account of The Voice posted about the departure of Levine, and also announced who will be replacing him.
“Our friend and coach Adam Levine made the decision not to return next season. We’re going to miss Adam, but The Voice is family and with family it’s ‘see you soon,’ never ‘goodbye.’ Gwen Stefani returns with Kelly, John, and Blake on The Voice stage this fall. Join us in welcoming back Gwen, and sharing our heartfelt gratitude to Adam!”
Gwen Stefani coming back is a little controversial, especially with her boyfriend Blake Shelton being on the show. In the past, people have complained about the two of them taking over the show with their relationship. I guess only time will tell whether this decision will be a good one for next season. The panel will be John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, and Gwen Stefani.
How do you feel about Levine leaving, and Stefani stepping in?
Toivoisin, että tänään – kävi miten kävi – vältyttäisiin turhalta vittuilulta kanadalaisia kohtaan ja mieluummin käytäisiin kiittämässä hyvästä pelistä. Kävi miten kävi. Voittoa on myös kivempi juhlia hymyssä suin ja hyvin mielin. Jos voitto siis tulee, niin toivoisin tosiaan, että käyttäydyttäisiin kunnolla. 🙂
