Right…

So, I literally haven’t been on this for over 6 months and I really need to start doing more posts…

But anyways, I did the Police work experience and it was brilliant!! We started off just really having a day of asking questions then started watching these videos of a crime and what they put in place to find out possible suspects for this burglary and on the last day we got to do an interrogation! It was so much fun and would realllllyyyyy want to do it again. I met a bunch of really nice people (we sat outside each day and due to the heat wave I think I was literally boiled.

Year 11! I’ve barely been back three weeks but am definitely NOT looking forward to the rest of it. For some reason the teachers have to keep mentioning to us that ‘your GCSE’s are in 9 months’. Do we really need to be reminded? I think it’s permanently on people’s minds, whether at the back or front, anyways. To make this even better I now have early break and lunch, so have 2 lessons after lunch rather than 1- it just makes the day seem so much longer. I honestly can’t do any of my option lessons, I enjoy them but talent-wise, I have absolutely no idea why I chose them aha. I tried downloading Duolingo over the summer which may have helped for French a tiny bit but I’m honestly still hopeless! This time in 10 months though, it will all be over… I guess then to start again with whatever I choose to do afterwards. I’m probably gonna have a look at each of the options I have (sixth form, apprenticeships, college) as I’m not sure between like 3 completely different things of what I want to do in the future;

Police (obviously you probably guessed that considering the work experience but yeahhh). I have literally always wanted to do something along these lines. It would be so enlightening and every day would be different.

Journalist. I love English language (like the story writing bit (may post one soon) and reading and hopefully that would allow me to travel? I hope so.

Caterer. I really enjoy cooking especially like pasta, bread, cakes etc so maybe I could get a job in that?

DREAM JOB: like, this is my ultimate dream. I would retire at age like 30 having saved like loaddddsssaaaa money from one of the first 2 jobs and buy a campsite in France and work there- I would love this so much!!!

In the summer holidays, I went to Woolacombe (camping) which was sooo good- for the first few days there were amazing waves but then after the storm they seemed to die down a lot, which was kinda annoying. As we were staying in a tent, storms aren’t seen to be our best friend at that point. My dad got up and had to peg down the tent about 5 times during it and our tent was shit. It decided to leak everywhere, breaking my phone which just happened to be in the place where one leak was, and now I have to charge it on this special charger where you take the battery out and charge via that. We went on a 18 mile bike ride along the Tarka Trail, which (I’m not sure if I really have to say this), was just a titch too long (and tiring). Have you ever tried Coasteering? (or Canyoning for that matter) It’s so much fun- we did it in Ilfracombe and jumped off rocks, slowly getting higher and higher until half the group backed out. At some points it just didn’t look that high from the top, but when you are jumping, I can assure you that it feels like you are for agggeeesss. Also a bit of climbing and rock scrambling is involved.

Hope everyone had an amazing summer (although it’s over now)!!

Hi againn

Hi, haven’t posted in a while, so here’s an update…

I’ve managed to get to go to the police for work experience, as long as I do a vetting procedural check (I don’t know what that is ahaha) at some point, and I have always been really interested about the police force, and perhaps even as a future job. However, it isn’t the same week my school do work experience, so I managed to get that week off of school, and I still needed to find work experience for the other week that everyone else was doing it, sooooo I decided to email my old primary school and ask if I could go there for that week and they said yes, so I am going to be working in a reception class for the week. That means I won’t be with a teacher that I know well from when I went there, but I am still really looking forward to going back!!!

On February 2nd, it was the 5th year that we had my dog, Stanley (his instagram account is _Stanley.x –go follow him!!!), and on the 5th December it was his 5th birthday!

For Christmas me and my sister get to go to the snow dome, really looking forward to it!!, and may be going dry slope skiing sometime in the holidays, I love skiing so much!!

3 simple things to go if you are bored

OK, so you are bored? Well, here are 3 things you should do-

1.BAKE

I had a phase of just making something as simple as bread or cakes once or twice a week, which actually helped with my boredness…

  • I actually managed to get myself off of a screen for a few more hours than normal, giving me something else to do AND something else to eat.
  • I got a bread recipe from school, but to that recipe (just a normal bread recipe) I added some ingredients-

– Some spoonfuls of pesto

– Some parmesan cheese (inside and on the outside)

– Sun dried tomatoes

-… and if you are extra like me, separate the dough when it is done (but before you cook it) into 3 pieces, and roll them into a line. Attach them at the top, and plait it.

2.READ

So maybe a lot less people read than in the past, but these are some amazing books I recommend you should read-

Divergent- here is the blurb- Beatrice Prior is on the brink of a decision that will change her life. In a society divided into factions all are forced to choose where they belong. And the choice Tris makes shocks everyone, including herself.

Once decisions are made, the new members and forced to undergo extreme initiation tests with devastating consequences. As their experience transforms them, Tris must determine who her friends are- and if the man who both threatens and protects her is really on her side.

Because Tris has a deadly secret. And as growing conflict threatens to unravel their seemingly perfect society, this secret might save those who Tris loves… or it might destroy her.

Harry Potter- I have a feeling I may not have to describe this as it has travelled over many different countries in different languages, but it is a great series I really recommend.

… and many others, like Maze Runner, The Hunger Games…

3.EXERCISE

OK, so everyone goes on about how good exercise is for you, but it honestly gives you something to do, whilst making you so much happier, however cliche that sounds!

Leibster award

Thank you to Sylvia Mar, who just nominated me for the Leibster award. You can find her website here- smilesandhugs.com – it is an amazing site with brilliant advice, go follow her!! 

My favourite blog is probably lostgirl17site.wordpress.com because of her amazing posts, with brilliant advice!! She writes some super poems, which are deep, and well thought through, and fantastically written!!! My favourite of her posts is ‘beautiful’, which indeed is a beautiful poem about how beauty isn’t just makeup, and it is how the people around you feel about, and love you, that matters. This is my favourite post because it is true in the modern world, that we only care about someone’s look on the outside, and judge them by that. Why do we do this? We spend too much time trying to make ourselves look ‘pretty’, but what is the point if they aren’t on the inside? What is the point if they are actually a horrible person. What is the point if they actually don’t care about anyone else, have no compassion, put people down? There is none. 

Here are Silvias questions, and my answers 😁:

How long can you spend without your mobile phone?

Probably like a week, but I’d want to go on it to check up to see if anyone had tried to contact me, and I would want to talk to my friends. Plus, it is easier to arrange to meet up.

If you could change one thing from your past, what would it be?

I don’t know, I’ve done a lotta stupid things I’d want to go back on, but I still don’t know if i would want to change it, because all of those stupid things make up who I am today, and changing one of them could change my whole life around. So I probably wouldn’t change anything, though at the time I probably would. 

What are the three thing you love about yourself?

I don’t know, probably the fact I love harry potter 😂, maybe that I see things as they are, not try and make them into positive (the fact that I’m kinda a realist), and that I’m proud that I am who I am (kinda clichè, but I guess 😁).

Are you a cat or a dog person?

I am DEFINITELY a dog person. I LOVE DOGS, they are the cutest, I have a dog called Stanley 😁.

What gift you wish to receive for your birthday?

Christmas is closer, but i would actually love a peely face mask, but in a tube, it is just so satisfying peeling it off 😂.

When you feel sad and depressed what do you do to boost your positive energy and be happy again?

I probably just go on my phone and watch YouTube, or watch tv. Normally does the trick 😀.

Which book you are reading at the moment?

Harry potter (of course) and the deathly Hallows. I love it (read it loadsa times before, but it’s still amazing, I recommend it if you haven’t read it (but I hope you have because it is the BEST ever series!!).

What is the goal that you have achieved and you are most proud of?

Ok, this may sound strange, but I got over my fear of feet (Yes, I used to be afraid of feet, haha, it’s so funny, she had a fear of feet). That is probably one of my proudest goal I have achieved, although I had to achieve it a couple of times since I kept on having the phobia of feet, and it went away, but now I’m pretty much fine with them (they are still disgusting though, ew).

Do you believe in miracles?

Nope, I think everything we do, our choices, leads up to things we do in the future.

 What does a perfect day look like to you?

Probably one with no arguments, I’m not at school, and I’m with my friends 😀.

My questions are:

Why did you start blogging?

What is your deepest regret?

What is your happiest memory?

What are you most against (e.g. animal cruelty, sexism, racism…)?

What is your favourite animal?

Why?

Where would you love to live?

Where would you most like to go on holiday, and at what time of the year would that be?

What is your favourite time of the year?

I just gotta say this…

What classifies things? What classifies something as stupid, clever, cool, uncool, beautiful, anything? Because beautiful isn’t just having plastic surgery, hair dye, makeup. 

This is gonna sound cheesy, but it’s what is in the inside. Nature is beautiful. You are beautiful. You may be classified as ugly, or fat, but who honestly cares about that? Yes, you may feel good about having ‘the perfect body’. Yes, you may feel good at making someone else feel terrible because it makes you seem cooler, or more popular within your group of friends, but seriously, is that what life is really like? Is life really just a competition to see who can win at it? No, because, honestly, what people actually value the most, even if it is deep, extremely deep, down, is someone being nice, or kind, even if it is just in a small way, because that is what people want to hear, or have someone be to them. 

Ok, so there is always going to be someone who judges you; it may be because of your personality, seeming wierd, but come on, isn’t that just pathetic? Judging someone because they may be a little different, are people not allowed to be unique? That also links in to the classified idea. Who would classify being different as wierd, or uncool, because everyone is different? Isn’t that a bit hypocritical? Anyways, this is what I think about this subject area. Anyone ever felt like this, I’m happy to listen to their stories in the comments. ☺

‘Dog is a man’s best friend’

So this post is about my dog, Stanley, and general dogs. First of all, I love dogs. They are soooooo cute and just really peaceful and loyal. (I especially love Welsh terriers- Stanley’s a Welsh terrier- and Siberian huskies. The other day I saw a Siberian husky puppy and it was adorable!! The picture below is Stanley, and although he doesn’t trust me (!!! 😢) because I pull him around way too much, he is just so soft and gentle.

I think that dogs simply understand humans, or their feelings, more than any animal, and that is what makes them so close to us; when I have cried, or laughed so hard I cried, he just runs over to see what is happening- unless there is food around (duh!! 😂). He always seems to know when we are going out without him because he runs towards the front door, his tiny feet pattering along as he goes, and waits there. He also loves the car; whenever he runs off, most of the time, all we have to do is open the car door and he’ll come running back! After he’s had a shower, or a hose down, and then hair dried, he runs round, up, down the stairs, on, off the sofa, inside, outside…

Here is his little face and paws trying to scavenge some more food for his never full mouth to eat 😂:

Have you ever…

Walked into a room and forgotten what you were going to get/do?

Tried to catch the fridge light between on and off?

Not got a joke and then realised later what it meant and laughed out loud, or try and keep it in silently,  and people around you look at you wierd?

Accidentally thought about an embarrassing moment from years ago and went ‘oh nonononoNO’?

Done the lion king with your pets?

Tried to sleep but just decided that that’s the time you are going to think about wierd, embarrassing, and so on moments in detail?

Remembered something you were supposed to do when you are just about to sleep?

No? I don’t believe you. I think I’ve pretty much done every single one of these; why do I do this?!? There are plenty of other times I could think about my life (if I actually wanted to), not just as I’m going to sleep, because I LOVE SLEEP. I always forget what I was supposed to get when I walk into a room, go downstairs, remember, go up, start doing something else, then start to go back down, then remember that wasn’t what I wanted, and finally get what I wanted to get in the first place (oops, aha).

These new trends are ones you should take a look at…

So apparently these new makeup ideas are becoming trends and I’m not quite sure what to think about them. 

Of course there is the new wiggly eyebrow trend which is slightly strange in some circumstances, but actually looks ok in others. In the photo above, they are more of a light, gentle squiggle (is that the right word?!?), whereas they are more defined in shape and colour in the picture below, which makes it look kinda wierd; they still look ok but I prefer the picture above much more. (The mascara and eyeshadow are gorgeous in both though!!) 

So I’m not quite sure if this is a trend, because I haven’t actually seen it anywhere, but the ‘ponytail brow’ trend seems to be, literally, some of the end of your brow hair, in a PONYTAIL!! Wierd right? To be honest, it actually looks ok though, but might take a lot longer than usual time taken to do your eyebrows!!! I think it looks really pretty because of the different colours in the brow. If it had been the same colour, perhaps maybe it would have looked quite strange, and probably wouldn’t be shown up as well what it is, or is supposed to be. 

Another brow trend which I actually have heard of is the ‘feather brow’ trend. I think it looks OK, but kinda makes you look a bit bald?That might be the makeup surrounding the eye’s effect though (those colours are stunning, I love them- especially the bluish fade effect). The brows look delicate, like a feather (oh really, they do?!?), and look pretty in the picture below, especially with the eye makeup.

Ok, so this might have helped with any questions you had about recent trends but it also may not have helped at all and confused you even more than before because of my rambling (which I am kinda doing now). I am terrible at makeup, I once went into school with almost black eyebrows, which doesn’t exactly go with my hair colour (blondish), and was trying to take it off throughout the day without having to go to student reception, so if anyone looked at me I was just randomly scratching at my eyebrows to get off the little bits I had on it (oops!!).

Is it really worth it to be caught in revenge or a dreamworld?

‘If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.’ This is so true. Whatever happens or what has happened to you; some embarrassing or hurtful things that you have gone through, forget it. Forget it or move on. Because nothing else will wait for you when you are in your own world caught up in revenge or anything like that, and in the long run, the only person you are hurting is yourself. When life hits you hard, get up. Either hit it back or forget it. Don’t wait for ‘the perfect time’ to hit it back, because you’re going to waste your life waiting for that time. 

‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.’ If you isolate yourself from others, maybe because you think that they don’t particularly like you, or maybe it’s that you just don’t have your light turned on. Turn it on. Be who you can be and anyone who doesn’t seem to like that, don’t worry about them. There is no point in being depressed because you are you, and that makes you unique. Being like everyone else, just to be ‘normal’, it just makes you a robot. A robot, the same as half the people in the world because you can’t make your own decisions without being judged or anyone disagreeing with you. There will always be at least one person who is like that. Don’t worry about them. It’s about you. Its about what you think and don’t let people make your decisions and life up for you.

‘It is our choices that show who we truly are far more than our abilities.’ Your choices in life are what makes who you are. Your abilities are nothing on that. If you are good at something you don’t like, why take the chances for maybe even getting a job in the future that, yes, you are good at it, but you don’t enjoy it. Follow your dreams. If it is too hard for you to follow, then maybe that is the point. Challenge yourself or you will get bored. Based on your choices, you can study, practise, whatever you need to do to be better at something. Your choices define who you are.
