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!


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!


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,

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
