Hey, so you ever heard of that fable ‘The Hare and The Tortoise’? Yeah well everyone hedged their bets on the Hare winning the race against that awfully slow tortoise, and yet the outcome was a surprising one I give you that. I mean its logical that the Hare would win that race, we all know that. But no there’s a valid point to be made here. That careful and easy going Tortoise just strolled along not worried about a thing, he ignored the Hare and his jibes and minded his own business. However, the Hare was more focused on getting ahead of the Tortoise and took a nap because of his cockiness, and well that ended up being the reason why he lost the race. He underestimated the Tortoise’s abilities.
Boy did you have me turning left right and centre this year. I feel like I’ve been spun around and pushed in a whole new direction.
This time last year I thought I was at my happiest, but wow didn’t that turn sour. Being shown the light of how manipulative some people can be, and how wrong I was about so many things. I’ve learnt though. I’ve learnt that some things are not okay, and I won’t allow myself to be used like that again.
You’ve taken me on my travels, to Prague and the South of France. Miles away from everything I know, and giving me some of the best memories that I will hold dear forever.
A new academic year has started and I’m sure there are lots of you who have started applying to university, or perhaps you’re stumped on what to do next. Well hopefully this post can help you out in some way…
Okay so when I was 17/18 I was pretty adamant that I would go to university, and it was very much expected at my school that the majority of us would go. However, when A Level results day arrived 3 years ago it suddenly hit me that I was going to Swansea university. I couldn’t quite believe I got in to start with, but there was a part of me that just knew I wasn’t quite ready for this huge change in my life. Well if you’ve followed me for a while now, you’re aware that I’m now studying with the Open University. I took a year out to work, and the following year I signed up to the OU because I felt ready to earn myself a degree.
What I aim to provide in this post is an alternative to going to university. It isn’t for everyone, or sometimes you need to “live” a bit before committing yourself to three years or more of further studying.
We all wake up sometimes and immediately know we’re not feeling quite ourselves, and we’re unlikely to feel better as the day goes on.
Sometimes we know the reason why we’re feeling this way and other times we don’t, which makes it all the more frustrating.
I had an “off” day last week and I didn’t really understand why. I didn’t have anything to worry about (other than work but that’s normal for me), nothing vital that had to be done, and the day was chilled. I could only conclude that I got too much sun the day before and the heat made me tired and a bit irritable. That evening I watched the film One Day because I felt like I needed to cry, not from unhappiness but I just felt that I needed to let something out and crying was the only way to do it. Safe to say watching One Day for the millionth time helped me a lot, and I went to bed afterwards and got a good nights sleep which always helps…
I think all of us can safely say we can lack confidence at times. It can be from silly things like asking for another pen in the middle of an exam because yours has run out, or from more serious things such as waiting on blood tests results.
We have a lot going on in each of our lives and at times we don’t want to plunge in at the deep end in case everything goes tits up, am I right?
Hey everyone! It feels like a long long time since I have spoken to you all directly, and so today I just wanted to thank you all for sticking with me and this blog.
For the past few weeks I have been working on quite a few changes to suit me better. I have switched over to WordPress because my Blogger kept deleting posts and removing my comments for no reason. Despite asking for help on the matter it didn’t solve the problem, therefore switching to WordPress has made editing a lot easier and I now have the comments system Disqus installed- yay!
You may or may not have noticed but I have also purchased my very own domain and as silly as this sounds I just feel like this blog is completely my own now.
