I used to sit and watch the world…

Last year on AS results day I cried because my grades were so terrible and it was all there in writing. I felt so bad because I’d gotten caught up in things that were (in truth) insignificant and I didn’t try nearly as hard as I should have.

This year I have a feeling I’ll cry again not because my results were good/bad. I’ll cry because today is like totally the end of college, the past 2 years summed up with a few letters.

The past 2 years have probably been the best of my life. I’ve grown up so much from the 16 year old that walked in to the 18 year old that strolled out. I’ve learnt so much inside and outside of lessons, made new friends that I hope to keep and met new people that truly changed me and taught me things. Some of these people were so unlike anyone I’ve ever met. I’m so much more confident in myself and a lot more expressive.

I’ll miss college so much it was stressful yet lots of  fun. Although, that time I guess has now passed and I’m now an adult ready to start making my mark on the world, I will always have the memories and all the pages that I wrote at the point in time when I became myself.

Hello 🙂

First on the agenda is an apology as it has been 12 days since I last posted and I didn’t even let you now I’d be taking a hiatus, during exam time. I didn’t plan to take a break from blogging but I had decided it was probably best for me to just focus on my studies, since these are my final exams at college.

12 days really isn’t that long but it felt like much longer to me, I’ve really missed blogging. My short time away was spent studying and my breaks consisted of watching home and away, OITNB, Reign, Made in Chelsea and big brother. I’ve also been babysitting and also looking for a job. Also I have developed a minor obsession with Seth Godin.

Moving on, today was the day of my last exam and I feel so amazing. The past 2 years (highs and lows) were totally worth it for the way I feel right now. Also what made the day even better was spending time with one of my favourite friends.

So now that I’m done with college I have nothing but free time. I’m planning to be productive though and keep myself busy. I’ll be dedicating lots of time to blogging as I want my blog to be as good as I can possible make it.

That’s it for now,  but I’ll be back again tomorrow.

p.s. I just want to say a big ‘THANK YOU’ to all those who still visited my blog whilst I took a short break!

The last day



So this is what I wore for my last day of college, its pretty simple but it did get me some compliments 😀

Also even though I’ve had my last official day at college, I still have to go in for exams. I have 6 left!

I hadn’t really made any plans in advance, as I didn’t really know who I wanted to spend my last day with or what I wanted to do.

As college was over and we were all heading out, I began to feel kind of sad, the end of college means the start of change. I’m not very good at embracing change, despite my best efforts, I often find myself looking back on the way things used to be.

In a few weeks I’ll be 18, in a few months many of my friends will be off to University in different cities all over England and I currently have no solid life plan.

Anyway, as I walked out  I was actually going to go home but then I went to say goodbye to a couple of friends who I’ve known for over 10 years. It’s so weird to think that I’ve known them for more than half my life.

Then I ended up going for lunch with a group of friends then to see ‘X-men: Days of Future Past’, in the evening. The movie was amazing by the way, so if you’ve been thinking about seeing it, go for it as you wont be disappointed.

I’m the kind of person that puts a lot of stress/significance on little things like ‘my last day at college’, so it was imperative to me that the day turned out amazingly.

The day didn’t turn out anything like how I thought it would though, it was so much better. Definitely a memorable day!

Aok May: Week 3

Welcome to week 3!

Yesterday was my last official day at college, although I do still have to go in for exams. Over the past week I’ve been thinking a lot about college, all the people I’ve met and the friends I’ve made over the past 2 years.

I got thinking about all of the nice things these people have done for me. Even just over the past week, (or maybe even just 24 hours?) I’ve been dealt more acts of kindness than I can count on both hands.

I guess I’d say the message for this week is to be grateful for things that others do for us whether its a stranger, a relative or someone in between.

I think its important to appreciate the kindness that we receive from others because its easy to take the little things for granted that are just part of daily life.

Life Snippets: The end is near

How do I say goodbye,

When I don’t want to let go?

How do I say goodbye,

When there’s something I need you to know?

So my last official week of college is approaching. I’m in year 13/A2 (the equivalent of a high school senior), so this really is the end.

I find it all pretty scary but a little exciting too. Over the next few months so many things are going to change.

Life Snippets: Not just a pretty face


This post relates to Writers March: Week 2 so if you missed that one click here.

So there’s this guy at my college, in one of my classes and when I first met him I thought he was just ‘a really HOT guy!’

But as I’ve gotten to know him I’ve realised he’s ‘not just a pretty face’. There is so much more to him than that and today, for the second time, he’s made me feel inspired.

He works really hard, has goals, is really confident and helps other people.

Anyway I wrote a line about him and I wanted to share it:

‘…his words inside my head,

etched for eternity.

I know that I can do anything.’

Pink and floral

wpid-IMG_20140213_184831-1.jpgThis is the outfit that I wore to college yesterday for Valentines day. The top I’m wearing is a camisole from  new look and I really love it. I got it towards the end of last year on sale and its such a versatile piece, easy to dress up or down.

I really like the outfit because its a little dressed up but still casual because of the oversized cardigan, and it got me some compliments too!

I had a free period yesterday and it was so much fun, I spent it with 2 of my good friends talking about boys, careers and how our lives will be in the future.

By the time I got back home yesterday I felt pretty under the weather so I spent the evening in bed with my headphones in.
