French exchange pt2

bonjour Mon amis!! 

hope you are all doing good! 
since I last wrote up a post I have really enjoyed my exchange! I have today and 2 more days until I leave to go home on Saturday, and I will definitley miss it here! 
I think that many people do find exchanges really really difficult since it’s a new situation with strangers, but you do get accepted into the family and get used to everything! 
im very lucky that my family im staying with are very accepting and have been kind to me. except my Exchange parter and her Mรจre, the rest of the family speak no English at all, so of course there have been some awkward moments, but eventually everyone gets used go each other and it’s all good!! 
wanted to make this post really fast as I actually have some battery on my phone for once๐Ÿ˜‚hope you enjoyedenjoyedreding this, bye!!!

French exchange pt1

hey guys, I’m in France!! 
today I wanted to just write about my experience so far
The coach journey was very long, around 22 hours, and im glad I did manage to get some sleep on there 
we also went a bit by ferry, which was very luxurious I thought, and that took up  7 hours of the 22 we travelled 
after that we had one more hour of coach, and I was very exited by then, but my Friend was a little bit worried so we all comforted her. 
that brings me to today,  I’ve slept over at my partners house, who is very nice! 

if I’m completely honest I feel quite homesick and miss my Family, and as we are staying for so long (8 days,  more like 6 though now) im a bit sad i guess.  today I spend the whole day with her again, then tomorrow I get dropped off somewhere at her school and im with all my friends for the day until after her school day is done
I would really appreciate some tips about feeling less sad, if anyone’s experienced this before
thankyou for reading,  bye!

AUTUMN!!!

THANK GOD!

Finally it’s my favourite time of the year! So much to look forward do, Halloween, Bonfire night!

Understatement to say I’m exited…….

Autumn may be rainy and colder (that’s what exites me, but carrying on!) it’s a new year, a new everything!

I’m in a weird mood if I’m honest, and you haven’t guessed.. I actually have a head ache and probably need a nap but I’m here for a chat apparently!!

Recently I’ve been getting so much more homework, and it’ll destroy me eventually๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I don’t have many tips for
homework, except just try do it asap so you have the time to do something you actually want to be doing, unless you want to be doing that.. everyone’s different?

The weathers started to be more misty and raining! I’m so happy to be wearing jumpers and not getting weird looks coz it’s April and I’m wearing knitted things, stop judging !๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I think I’m going to stop writing nonsense, I’m a little hysterical it seems…I hope you enjoyed this? Have a good day!

New books I haven’t read yet!!

Afternoon guys, how’s your day going?

For my birthday I got a load of new books, and thought I’d do a post on them, since I haven’t tried them out, and they sound great!

Here we go!

Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray

This book sounds amazing, and from the blurb it tells about two women who are pretty much opposites coming together. The book is also fairly big but I have a feeling it’ll be worth it!

The girl of ink and stars by kiran Millwood Hargrave

This book I’m debating wether or not if it’s my sort of book, but it sounds very adventury (is that a word?) and isn’t too big of a read from what it looks like!

Demon road by Derek Landy

I have actually started reading this book series, and it is absolutely amazing so far! It’s about a girl with very odd parents, and saying much more will probably ruin it, so I’ll leave it at that, but it’s great!!

Persuasion by Jane Austen

This book is actually fairly small, and the print isn’t extremely small, so possibly a fast read, but the book is about a woman deciding against marrying a sailor. This is Austen last completed book, and I’m very exitied to start it!!

I decided to keep this fairly short, and I might do a post on these after I have finished reading them!!

Hope you have an amazing day, bye!

First week back!

Hey guys!

Today I thought I’d just chat about my first week back at school, and just have a casual talk!

(Totally not putting off homework already..๐Ÿ˜‚)

My first week wasn’t horrific, but I think as everyone does, I got first day nerves๐Ÿ˜ฌ

The most unnerving for me is new seating plans, coz you can be really really unlucky or super lucky in where you end up. Majority of my lessons ive had really decent seating! It’s really all about making friends with people and being open to it, and usually I deal with that, but you do have to make a good effort to be at least semi confident and talk to the people around you as much as you can

So far my favourite lessons have probably been History, French, English and art (clearly not very academic ๐Ÿ˜‚)

In a lot of my lessons I don’t have many friends in them, but as I said you have to just make the effort to be friendly and go from there!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I think this will have to be a short post, as unfortunatly I have to do homework๐Ÿ˜•

Let me know how your first week went, and what your fave subject is!!

Bye!

Why did you start a blog in the first place?

I started blogging because I have a diary, and of course that is a lot more personal, but I absolutely loved the idea of sharing stories and experiences with others! I was also quite inspired by zoellas books ‘girl online’ and that gave me the final boost to set up this site!โค๏ธ

What do you dislike the most?

I don’t dislike anything massively, because it’s not a good thing to dislike or… oh wait, I have something ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I really don’t like ( ok fans of this are gonna hate me๐Ÿ˜‚..) TWILIGHT. I’m not gonna go on a rant about it because we could be here all day, but yea, that’s it! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

100 followers!?

Omg!?! Hey guys, how are you?

I want to start this post off by expressing how happy I am! This Blog means so much to me and to say I’ve hit a big milestone (for me personally) is actually crazy!

I started this blog around about the 28th of December, 2016, and recently, around a few weeks ago I decided to pick up this blog again as I hadn’t posted for a month and was determined to not give up because of procrastination! I’m not one to give up and I really didn’t want to at this point! School and life had started to get a bit busy, and I know it will get busier, but the idea of blogging is it’s a hobby and you make time for it, as it’s your little safe space for you and others around you!!

Since I started, I’ve definitely changed greatly, and have secured my own sense of a style of blogging and made so many amazing friends, in what has been a very important time in my life so farโค๏ธ

I recently had my birthday, and this is by far the best present I have received! Not just because I’ve ‘done well’ or ‘come far’, but because I have made some amazing friends who’s blogs I love, and found a lovely new outlet to express myself and how I feel about things

Thank you so so much for this guys, and I do hope you stick around ๐Ÿ˜‚ love you guys!โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Getting glasses ๐Ÿ‘“

Ok, I tried to write this earlier this afternoon, and it wouldn’t load, so here we go again! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi guys, how was your day?

Today I did pretty much nothing, if I’m honest, I sat around watching YouTube all day.. I need to get outside more๐Ÿ˜‚

For this topic id like to share opinions and advice with one and other

Let’s get into it then!

When I was younger, I didn’t want nor need glasses. My eyes have always been pretty decent, and I’ve never had blurred vision or an issue with them. When I was younger, the glasses that seemed most popular were the small rectangle ones, or at lest that’s what I saw most people wearing, and 7 year old me opted out of that one pretty fast ๐Ÿ˜‚

Recently my opinion on glasses changed, however.

Glasses are much more wide range nowadays I think, but then again maybe it’s just different trends coming in and out of fashion. Recently my eyes started to water and hurt sometimes, and I tried of a pair of glasses from one of my family members and could see through them much more clearer than I should of been able to..

so I decided maybe I should get my eyes checked up on๐Ÿ˜‚

I had never been to the opticians before, so I was a bit nervous, but I had absolutely no reason to, as everything went fine! I messed up when talking to other human being of course, because I’m an antisocial awkward bean, but I got through it ๐Ÿ˜‚

First I was taken to an open room where I had to look through into a lens and look at this image of a hot air balloon, but all they did was take the receipt that came from it and nothing else was said about it, so not certain what happened there๐Ÿ˜‚

Then i was called into one of the rooms and the optician examined my eyes, which was extremely uncomfortable, if I’m honest๐Ÿ˜‚
After that I looked into the lens and had to answer questions she asked related to the images on the machine, such as which lens looked clearer, which colour is brighter, and reading letters from further away.

After all of that I found out that i am *drumroll please*…..

Shortsighted! I actually didn’t expect I’d need them, but here we are! After we found out, another lady took us out and I tried on different glasses, and ended up choosing some black framed ones, which I’ll have in a week! My prescription isn’t that big I don’t think, but my eyes can be a bit awry sometimes so I’ll need them for further away things.

Let me know your opinions on glasses, any advice you can give me about starting to wear glasses and if you wear fake glasses? I think it’s really cool than some people do that, but personally I don’t think I could do that, as if someone with real glasses came up to me and asked me what my prescription was, I’d feel really awkward๐Ÿ˜‚

In some ways I’m glad I have glasses, as the pay suit my sarcastic geeky personality and they can look cool with different outfits, but I’m hoping my vision is better mainly!

Thank you for reading, have a great day, bye! X

Back again !๐Ÿ˜‚

Hey guys, been a month since I last wrote up a post and it’s been a mixture of not being able to write (not much time) and not knowing what to write

I’m pretty sure I’ve written something like this before, as well as everyone, since it’s fairly common to have a writers break!

Something to know about me is that I can be absolutely obsessed with something for a while, yet a bit of time later I become, not not interested, but the way to describe it is a sort of procrastination that makes me put it off, but also not knowing what to write.

I get this a lot with things, such as I cut my hair, then for a while kinda regretted it (I love my hair now though ๐Ÿ˜‚) and I go in between reading and drawing quite a bit too.

I get random obsessions with things, and can’t get it out of my head! A good example was getting my ears pierced, and I got extremely exited for it, and not that I was underwhelmed by it, but obviously it wasn’t the biggest change ever ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

As I’ve been gone for a while, I think I might just give little updates on what I’ve been doing since I’ve been gone right now, and on some certain old topics I’m thinking of doing their own blog posts for them!

I’ve been on holiday recently to the seaside, which was beautiful as always! We stayed for about a week and the weather was pretty decent, to say our British summer has been awful!
People in Britain have to agree with me, the weather hasn’t been great (I can’t account for the south of Britain) which is a shame, but my favourite season is Autumn so I’m looking forward for that!

There’s something about wrapping up and the jumpers and candles are amazing! I’m slightly obsessed with Autumn if I’m honest..it’s a less extreme winter but can still be kind of warm!

My summer has been pretty uneventful apart from that! I’ve always liked just having a relaxing holiday and not having to do too much. I like seeing friends and keeping in touch of course, but chilling out and having some time to do nothing is extremely nice!

Though it is 01:24 right now (yikes..๐Ÿ˜‚) I really enjoyed writing this post! I hope you enjoyed this! Have a good day or night,

Friend zoning someone

Hey guys,

This topic is actually quite an interesting one, as I feel most people I talk to tell me how they have been friend zoned, and not vice versa

Friend zoning someone, I think, is one of the most awkward and embarrassing things ever. I’ll put you in a scenario:

One of your good mates and you are chatting (like always) and things start to get a bit..flirty. You find it kinda weird, but presume it’s a joke and go along with it. Then, they ask you if you would ever go out with them, but they don’t ask u straight on.

As this point, it can go two ways.

You could like this person back and answer “yes”, and if they ask you properly after that, then you’re all set

… but that’s not what this post is about.

If you answer no, and they admit to liking you that way, things can go downhill, extremely fast.
I can’t give you an answer for everything to go swimmingly well again, coz let’s be honest, I’m not a genius

The thing most people expect is sheer awkwardness,which yeah, that’s gonna happen, but to get away from that, just try to be nice, and don’t let them expect anything if you know you don’t want to be with them like that

I think that you have to try to not lose a friendship, because you don’t want to have that!
The aim avoid awkwardness, so some ideas I have are:

Don’t chat for agesssssssssss… because you’ll run out of things to talk about… ha ha..

Be kind, because that’s what you’d want if you had been in that situation!

Acknowledge things are different, and don’t force anything

I wanted to bring this topic up because this is what I’m going through at the moment, and if I’m honest, I’d probably prefer to be friend zoned than have to friend zone someone, as it gives you a horrid gut feeling (depending on who it is, it’s one of my closer mates) because you don’t think of that person in that way!

Good luck it you’re in this situation !!
