What I’ve Been Up to – Birthday, Stress, Change and Learning German!

Hi everyone, sorry my posts have been a little sparadic recently, I can explain!

These last few weeks have not been the greatest, I was extremely stressed a few weeks ago resulting in me not eating, not sleeping and therefore doing worse in my assesments than I probably could’ve, causing even more stress. I’m on the path back to where I was but unexplained sadness still takes away from my mood (sad songs playlist on repeat, haha!)

My semester properly finished on Friday (although we still have one more week), this means I will have new teachers and classes for next semester. If you know me well, you’d know I hate change. I’d prefer to do the same classes with the same teachers and same people every day for the rest of my life then ever have to change. 
I only want to post things I’m proud of, and I didn’t feel I was in the state to do that for the past few weeks. 

“Good things are happening, even if they hurt.” 

Anyway, on Tuesday, it was my birthday, didn’t do anything too special but had a good day, filled with chocolate, school and phone calls from family. 
Now, it’s the weekend. Lately I’ve been so bored on the weekends, I have nothing to do, I occasionally go out with friends but more often then not, I’m at home. I have a three week school break starting next week, if I can barely survive 2 days how will I get through 3 weeks?

About 10 weeks ago I decided to pick up German on the app ‘DuoLingo’ (HIGHLY recommended!) I believe I’m currently 15% fluent, and it heals my boredom problem sometimes haha! It made me realise how much I love learning. I only really know basic sentences which will probably never come up in a conversation but we’re getting there! Haha. Ich bin eine frau und du bist ein mann, ich habe kein ahnung…!

Well that’s about it, I hope you guy’s enjoyed this chatty post and I’ll hopefully see all your beautiful faces next week!
Comment below what you’ve been up to! When’s your birthday? Do you know any other languages?
Thankyou so so much for reading! ♡

My first blog.

Ah, yes, another “teen blogger” with no particular writing talent, or really, with any talent in general, attempting to start a blog.

In some ways this title is actually quite misleading, this definitely isn’t my first blog, In fact I’ve tried to have a blog on and off for a few years now, but I never stick with it. It may be my lack of commitment issues, extreme levels of perfectionistism and stubbornness, my extremely uninteresting life or most likely, a mixture of all three. But, this time I’m going to try to keep it up.  

I will focus on topics like fashion, beauty, tips, lifestyle, what I’ve been up to’s, and basically anything that crosses my mind that I want to talk to you guys about. Bare with me as I try to get the hang of this thing.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this pretty boring blog post and hopefully come back for more and join me on my journey. A simple follow, like or comment would absolutely make my day, so be sure to click my follow button, like and write a comment below telling me a bit about you :)!
