Attainable

I wore this outfit a couple weeks ago but didn’t get round to posting it- oops!

The day I wore this outfit I remember I was in high spirits, I was in a ‘I can take on the world’ frame of mind and I felt like my goals and ideals were attainable.

This outfit began with these grey trousers, then the grey sweater and then I thought I may as well go all the way and added this grey patterned jacket over the top.

Anyway I’ll end this post with some advice: ‘The key to attainability is persistence’.

Expressive February: Week 3

Hey there, yep I’m still back with my weekly ‘Expressive February’ post.

I’ll be honest and say ‘this theme has been unsuccessful’.

But I’m ok with that, nothing wrong with trial and error.

What was the point???

Basically I’m promoting self-expression as its something I know that many people struggle with (including me). I decided to be a pioneer and promote it on my blog not that I’m claiming to be the crème de la crème of expressive-ness, but its something I wanted to share.

This week I’m trying to make this post a good one so I’m sharing some great quotes, ENJOY!!!

“Unexpressed emotions will never die. They are buried alive and will come forth later in uglier ways.”
― Sigmund Freud

“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.”
― Ansel Adams

“None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“We are not supposed to all be the same, feel the same, think the same, and believe the same. The key to continued expansion of our Universe lies in diversity, not in conformity and coercion. Conventionality is the death of creation.”
― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

“The crowning fortune of a man is to be born to some pursuit which finds him employment and happiness, whether it be to make baskets, or broadswords, or canals, or statues, or songs.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

More of the good stuff

Over the next week or so I will be making some changes to my blog.

These changes are due to the fact that I want to make my blog better and after reading a tonne of blogging advice online I’ve realised that their is much to be improved.

The main thing I want to change is the content. I want to post more about fashion, include more photo’s, improve my writing and plan things out more.

I’m really looking forward to transitioning my blog from ok —> AMAZING!!! (hopefully)

That’s it for now, until next time…

Wise words by Beryl Pfizer

If I spent as much time

doing the things I worry

about getting done

as I do worrying about them,

I wouldn’t have anything

to worry about.

BERYL PFIZER

This is an example of why I love quotes. I feel like this quote was made for me, I worry about everything all the time. I’m going to attempt to try out being a do-er rather then a worrier which will be difficult but it would make my life a tonne easier.

Getting through 2nd year

So I haven’t posted in a while and I feel so terrible about it. I started this post a few days ago  and finally got round to completing it today. Basically its just advice I’m giving myself for my 2nd year of A-levels but I think it’s quite useful for anyone in still in education.

Begin as you mean to go on

Get into a routine early on in the year so that you don’t get stressed round exam season. For me that means going over my notes from the lesson at least every week.

Set realistic goals

I’m guilty of setting unrealistic goals, for example sometimes I think I will never be happy with my grades unless they are all As and A*s. I’m not saying you  shouldn’t aim high because you should but aiming too high often means your just setting yourself up for disappointment. So for my A-levels I’m aiming for BCC at least, which is attainable as long as I work hard and stay focused.

Positive mantras

For me they are just a way of staying motivated. When I’m feeling not so great or even just a little lazy I think of some wise words by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

‘Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm’

Avoid making comparisons

In my 1st year maths class I used to compare myself to all the other guys in the class (there was only one other girl). I would make comparisons daily thinking that I must be so stupid because I wasn’t as smart as they were. So I think it’s important to focus on yourself and how you can do better for you.

Spend your frees wisely

So I have 4 frees every week and I spend them all hanging out with friends and having fun. What I should do is dedicate at least 1 of the frees to getting work done, that way I wont have as much to do at home.

 

I hope you found this post useful or at least a little interesting!
