A Week of Happiness (Tag?)

Hi Guys,

All of last week I was running an experiment in my life to see if people felt the effects. I am a big believer in positive energy (call me a hippy) so I though that I would spread some of mine by being positive. For the whole of the week I attempted to add a bit of brightness into every body's day's; here's a run down of the highs and lows of the week.

Monday and Thursday

Today was complement day! I woke up with an added spring in my step because I knew how great I'd feel after the day. I know it sounds ridiculous; getting ready to spread joy makes you feel more joyful. The best way to explain is that it's like lending someone a book. You get excited before hand to hear there opinions and afterwards it feels even better because you've got someone to talk to about it!

The moment I got into the building I was complimenting left, right and centre! I could tell that a lot of people felt awkward about accepting it though. I think that the acknowledgement from the receiver is the worst part: people feel like they need to tell you something back. I wish that my friends (and all of the random people I complimented today) would just accept that I'm telling the truth!

Tuesday

Smile back day! Today was the day of my first musical theatre exam. Obviously I was nervous, but today I was hiding under an alter ego: my smile! As the first sentence suggests, whenever someone would smile at me I would reciprocate. At first, this was pretty difficult. Nobody was smiling at me to start off with. I soon turned this around by walking around with a huge beam. After an hour my face started to hurt!


Wednesday

Probably my favourite day of the week: positive Wednesday! All this meant was that when somebody said something to me, I would say something really positive back. This was pretty hard for me because when you are speaking to a pessimistic their isn't a lot you can do to change the tone but in the end it worked out pretty well! Some of the best things were telling people how great they would do. When somebody else had confidence in you it makes you feel so much brighter too! 

That's the end of my week. I know I missed off the weekend but it was a lot harder to find people to compliment when I was at home editing! Before you go, I would like to encourage you to do the same thing this week. Please document whatever happens to you. I want to get the week of happiness trending! Don't forget to email me if you do make a post about it because I would love to see what you found!

Don't forget to add me to your circles and I hope you have a great week!


Thanks 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…
