That thing called school...

School, everyone knows it and I am pretty sure most people shudder at the thought of back to school time. Well unless your my organised and odd sister, who has got everything out and ready for tomorrows endeavour to school. Near the end of every summer break you go through the same ritual.

  1. Get new school bag
  2. Buy lots of pens and pencils (even though the ones from last year are fine, you have to make the point)
  3. If you are unlucky enough to have uniform (like me) then buy new uniform and school shoes.
  4. Complete any homework or essay's you may have purposely left to the last few days 
  5. And anything else that is going to distract you from the actual reality of back to school.
After completing this list you then think up scenarios of your first day back. You think to yourself this year is going to be different. I am not going to fall over at every possible moment there is and completely embarrass yourself in front of your crush and scrape by in most of your exams. No! This year is going to be different.

You are going to strut in pulling off the lousy, uncomfortable and itchy uniform, be friends with everybody, somehow complete all homework the night you get it and  ace every single test they throw your way.
But if you are anything like me I think that the first scenario is a lot more realistic. I mean why would this year be any different to the others. I could say that I am a year older now, so I am more mature and I have grown out of my clumsiness. However I think that is highly unlikely.

So I will let you know how tomorrow goes, If I know my self then something embarrassing is going to happen making for a great blog post. So we will see. What is it going to be fresh new and amazing year or the same as all the previous ones?

What was your first day back at school like? Did your ace it? or was it just another yearly disappointment?
Let me know in the comments below, I would love to hear you stories, they may make mine more bearable.

Thanks for reading :)

Summer Holidays


The summer holidays. They happen every year, and every year we seem to get them wrong. We wait so long for them and then when they finally get here they fly by so fast. Why is this?  I have no idea.

So at the beginning of this summer I thought up a list. This was a list of many things that I wanted to do by the end of the summer.  It was my way of planning what I thought was going to be the best summer ever. I had experienced the boring summers spent trapped inside while the rain fell constantly outside, as if it was trying to contain me in my house with my little sisters who wanted to spend everyday playing games and building dens. But this summer was going to be different. It would feel as if it was never ending and I would meet my friends everyday and go to parties and be at the beach constantly. The list was something like this:

  • See friends everyday
  • Have a crazy summer romance
  • Have loads of BBQ's
  • Go to parties
  • Get an amazing tan
  • Go abroad to some tropical country
  • etc...

However it was no surprise that my summer was nothing like this. I have a very family oriented family (if that makes sense). They want to do everything together. So my parents had already booked up about 4 out of the 6 weeks with activities or family visits. Then as usual, living in England, it was not the best summer. There was quite a lot of rain and wind and not much sun. So that put great tan off the list. Seeing friends was also quite difficult with my families tight schedule so that was pretty much ruled off the list as well. BBQ's are also quite hard to pull off in the rain however we did manage to pop a few in every now and then between the rainy spells. If you are not meeting up with friends then it is also difficult to get invited to parties so that was a no no. And I wouldn't even get me started about a summer romance, I mean what was I thinking. The only thing left on my list was to go abroad to a tropical country and that one was kind of successful. My nan happens to be turning 80 soon. So that gave my family an excuse for a holiday. So we packed up and went to Spain. Not that tropical I know, but still good enough for me.

So now it is 2 days before we go back to school and I cant believe the summer is pretty much over. Having completed only one thing on my 'Summer 2015' list I am disappointed with it. As always.
But you never know there is still another year.

Let me know if you ever experienced the same 'summer goals' ideas and then the same realistic summer that we have all come to know in the comments below. What was your summer like? and was it any better than mine?

Why should you read this?

Why should you read this Blog? This is a simple question and to be honest I don't know the answer.

 I would like to say I am an ordinary teenager who goes to an ordinary school, has ordinary friends and an ordinary life however I don't think I can. Because I don't really know what ordinary is.
Everybody is so different how can you categorise people to being normal and different, ordinary and unordinary.
Like most people I have things I want to say but I don't feel I can or I don't know how to say. I am one of those people who is awkward, awkward in talking and in life. So I want to use this Blog to truly be myself. Not who others surrounding me want me to be, but just to be me. So I hope you enjoy my Blogs about my awkward and clumsy slip ups. Or just my thoughts on random subjects. But if anyone is actually reading. Thank you for listening and if you wish to hear more about my life, just let me know.
So for anyone who was reading, what are your thoughts on why you should read this and if you wish to say what you want to say without any judgement, go ahead. Write it in the comments or just say it out loud.

Thank you for reading :)
