You Can!

Hi Guys,

Today I'm going to be making a more personal post about my own life. I'm going to be sharing with you my goals and aspirations for the near-and not so near!- future. 

There are a lot of pressure on this generation because we will be 'inheriting the world'. That inheritance reflects us so I want to make an impact; one of my biggest fears is being forgotten. I hate to think that when I'm no longer here I won't have made an impression. Most people believe that to have a legacy you need to have your name in lights: be the Prime Minister, invent something phenomenal, star in an award wining film. I do not believe this is true. One of my goals is to help people- no matter who they are. I don't care if I never become famous: if I make a difference to one person ( even you, by writing this blog!) I will have achieved it.

Later in the future, I would like to go to university. Who knows what course I will study!I really enjoy drama and I take singing and dance lessons. This would lead to a career in musical theatre, but is that a viable option? There is so much negative stigma surrounding different paths that sometimes I feel there is too much pressure to do the right thing. People think that a career in the performing arts is just a dream... it will never be more than a dream if you don't follow it! You could chase it all the way to Broadway but would finding an am dram theatre really be that bad? 

I don't think that pursuing a career in the arts is really for me, though. My ultimate dream is to be a journalist. I would preferably be a fashion editor for a big magazine like Cosmopolitan or Vogue. That is a huge ambition. I know that it will take a lot of determination and I am willing to give that. Although, people in the fashion world are hugely criticised. I currently run this blog which never receives any hate comments (and I hope never will). 

To anyone who is out there too afraid to do what you love you, can do it! In this world everyone is busy watching themselves so you have to make them look at you! You are the only person who can achieve your dreams and you should truly believe you can.

I hope this has influenced you to go for it! Have a wonderful day!

Thank you for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
