Listen, I don’t mean to go on about it so much, but last year sucked, okay? And part of this was the people that I used to call friends finding my blog and YouTube channel (did a bit of sad writing on it here). Basically, they found it, and certain videos and lines from posts became hilarious jokes between them all. Weirdly enough, I wasn’t exactly a fan? Crazy, right? Anyway, I tend to take criticism like that to heart way too much, and so since then, I haven’t uploaded a single video. It took me a damn long time to even get back into blogging, and I love this thing. YouTube, though, I just don’t know if I can bring myself to start doing again. I know, I know, who cares about what other people think? Do what you love, for you! I know all of this, but I just can’t decide if it’s worth getting back into it.

If you’ve been around here a while, you’ll know the struggle I’ve had with trying to find a flat. First trying to find a group to flat with (shout out to the two groups of people that kicked me out !!), then finding an actual place that didn’t need me to work 100 hours a week to afford it. Then, finally, finally, we found a place just before Christmas. It’s four rooms, but currently only has two of us living in it, while the other two are home for summer break. This is Proper Adulting now, and weirdly, I love it! Continue reading “I moved out! // Jan 2018”
It’s 2018, friends!!! Man oh man, I’ve never been so excited to watch a clock tick over to midnight. Next year is going to be a bit of a rollercoaster for me; I’ve just moved into a flat with a friend, and we’re waiting on two more friends to join us, plus I’ll be at a new university…. There’s a lot in store, and I have no idea how to predict it all, but here’s some stuff I’m pretty set on doing in 2018. Continue reading “Goals and Resolutions for 2018”
Let me tell you, August has been a MONTH. So much has been going on in my personal life, that internet me/free time me has just… disappeared. She’s coming back in September though (I hope, no promises). But, despite all of that, I thought I’d catch you up on what I have been doing, and also give myself some goals for next month!
Out of everything, reading has been suffering the most. We’re not even going to go through all the challenges I said I was going to try and do, because just, nope. In August, I read (and reviewed) the Rest of Us Just Live Here. That’s it. I’ve nearly finished The Brothers, and hopefully I’ll finish Fangirl pretty soon, but reading just hasn’t been the priority for me. Reading slumps, man, they are a STRUGGLE. Continue reading “August 2017 Wrap-Up, and September Goals”
The other night, I went to a party at a friends, which was the last gathering of their group of 25ish friends, plus some others (like me and my friends). I really had such a good night, I got about 3 hours sleep because we stayed over, we danced to old songs and those songs that everyone knows the moves to, played games like Mafia, and it was just SO MUCH FUN. At the end of it, though, people walked out that door and I had a sudden realisation that I’m never going to see most of those people again.
The people I care about, I’ll stay in touch with. Even if we drift apart, we’ll still try to start off with. I know some friendships will last a while, and some will fall apart almost straight away. They aren’t the ones I’m worried about, though. It’s the people that I barely ever talk to, but they’re still a big part of my life, generally just in little ways. Continue reading “Everyone is LEAVING”
As of February, I won’t be living in my house anymore. And because I have the biggest room, I’m properly moving out, into a smaller, sort of spare room. You’d think that since I have a month and a half, this wouldn’t be a stressful prospect. It is, though. It’s very stressful.
I’m writing this post from my bed, and if I look off the end I can only see boxes, that are waiting for wardrobe space. See, my brother is moving into the spare room temporarily while my friend stays here, but before his wardrobe stuff can go in there, that stuff needs to be cleared out, but that stuff doesn’t have anywhere to go because I don’t have any space in my wardrobe, because my stuff has to go in my brother’s room. Do you see the issue?? It’s like this endless circle, and there always seems to be a problem that’s stopping the next step. So, my tactic at the moment is putting everything into boxes, so that those boxes can be easily moved as soon as they can be. Continue reading “Packing Up”
We are oh so close you guys, and I am HYPED. Now that I’m old and stuff, and not really a child, I’ve been doing a lot more shopping for myself, instead of my mum doing it all. This means that I can get excited for my presents IN ADVANCE, because I know what’s coming. There are still going to be some surprises, of course, but not as many as there have been in other years. Usually, I’m not a big shopping fan, but I get really into the Christmas spirit and want to buy ALL OF THE THINGS. Continue reading “CHRISTMAS”
