How Blogging Has Changed My Life...

Hi Guys,

Welcome to my blog! There are now officially 100 of you which I am ecstatic about! This post has been made to commemorate this amazing achievement. I know that my last sentence  could sound really big headed but it was a group effort. All of you were the people who made this happen so, first and foremost, I want to say thank you! With all of your help I am one step closer to becoming a journalist.

That is the first point I want to make. One of the ways that blogging has affected me is that I have built up an immense portfolio. Before this, I used to much prefer fiction writing but now I am equally as passionate about both! Also, having this much of my writing in one place makes it really easy for the future. All of this will help me to one day become a journalist because it means that; I get experience every week; my writing is already seen by a lot of people; I have gained a lot of skills.

That fluid transition is leading me on to my skills! Blogging has made me a lot more employable. I know that it is pretty early for me to be thinking about things like that but it is something that I can bring forward with me. People with a good grasp on technology are automatically more wanted. Before I started blogging I struggled to figure out itunes! Now I can understand everything on my laptop!

Finally, the people! I have made so many connections with people through my blog. I love it when you guys comment because it makes me feel like I've gained a friend. Following and supporting someone's journey is such a wonderful thing and being able to contact people from the push of a button is amazing! I have made some great contacts with other bloggers and I am excited to say that next year I am going to try and collaborate more!

That is everything for today. I would just like to say another big thank you to everyone who has added me to their circles. I want to be 125 by the end of this month though so tell all of your friends about me! I hope you are all having a great day!

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…
