I’m not someone who is overly confident, or confident in any sense of the word to be honest, but I have found that there is something that people say when I first talk to them that instantly makes me want to get to know them and be best friends. I have also only really recognised this lately because a few people have done this now and I instantly respect and like that person. But yeah I suppose I’ll spill the answer for all of those unconfident people who like to socialise but hate small talk with a passion.
So what is it? Well, I can guarantee you that will make a lifelong friend if you ask them something like “what do you want to be/do when you are older” or just any deep fucking question. Like one time I was working and it was quite quiet so I was just folding napkins and then one of the girls who works there was just like “isn’t it weird how in life we just wait for everything to be finished” and I just didn’t really know what to say because I thought she was reading my mind or some shit. And it was so out of pocket! Like so far out of pocket that it isn’t even visible. I mean where is the pocket? I don’t know but I am fully out of that bitch! Don’t get me wrong, I loved the energy but like it threw me off my folding rhythm because I didn’t realise anybody else had thoughts like that.
And usually people find it a bit weird to talk about existential stuff like that when you don’t really know them that well but like fuck me, I knew instantly that this was going to be a good friendship. Bare in mind I did quit shortly after and have only texted her once but like it could have been something good I guess. I don’t see why those types of topics have to be so official to talk about because I know that those conversations you have late at night at a sleepover with your friends are the best ways to become closer with them. Like you realise that people actually all thing fucked up shit like this. Obviously I don’t think it would be the best to turn to a stranger and be like “hey, isn’t it funny how I literally always think of fucking ending it lol” because that’s a bit deep and will most likely scare them off. Unless they are a therapist, in which case you better get your planner out because you are gonna be booked in to see them for the next year at least. I guess you could count that as getting a friend
But I think something more just like “what do you even think is out there, like in space and shit” is a good one to go for because you could talk about that for ages and everyone thinks about that stuff so it would be easy and you would bond with the person. That is, of course, unless they are a dumb bitch and think that it’s all a scam and we are all just in some game. To be fair I would vibe with that. It isn’t even that dumb to be fair so sorry about that but you could even get into talking about conspiracy theories and shit. I think it would also give you a good scope of their personality and who they are as a person. You could probably find all the red flags within that one conversation. You could find they are a flat earther, racist, sexist, homophobic, one of those people who think the world is only like 7000 years old. It could save you a lot of time and effort by getting all that shit cleared up in your first conversation.
I suppose it is quite the risky one as well because if the first thing you say to them is like “what are your opinions on the Epstein island stuff?” they might be like who the fuck are you and how did you get in my house?! Sorry that was a bit of dark humour, I don’t condone breaking into people’s houses. But anyways, they might be like that is so weird I don’t want to talk to you, then that is there loss and now you know they aren’t your type of person. It probably means they aren’t really down to earth or kind which is a bit ironic seeing as you would think people interested in conspiracy theories are not down-to-earth but I find that people who like to talk about that type of stuff are open-minded and generally interesting people. They don’t just believe what is said on the news and aren’t close-minded cheeky shits.
Anyways, I suppose that is all that I wanted to mention and I hope that helps you out in some sort of way. Let me know if this worked for you and if you have a best friend because of a similar conversation. I mean small talk is the stupidest shit ever and like why not skip to the fun stuff? Don’t forget to like, comment and follow because I am planning to post more and I might just do some conspiracy theory posts because I actually do find them somewhat interesting to talk about. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
I know that title makes me sound like I’m fucking ancient or some shit but like I am only 16. To be fair though this is me nearly becoming an adult and like is one of the biggest changes in life so I suppose I can talk about growing up. The difference between me now … Continue reading Growing up: Expectations vs. Reality
I’m in lower 6th and yes I have only been so for about 3 months but the thing is that I didn’t even know if I wanted to go back to that hell-hole. The only reason I did go was because I didn’t know what else to fucking do and I have FOMO so I … Continue reading Is 6th Year Really Worth It?
So I would like to preface that I am a 16 year old who had a part-time job so obviously if you are like a mum of 5 or something and you are thinking about quitting, I would think it through a lot more than what I am going to mention but like just for … Continue reading I Quit…Was It A Big Mistake?
I’m in lower 6th and yes I have only been so for about 3 months but the thing is that I didn’t even know if I wanted to go back to that hell-hole. The only reason I did go was because I didn’t know what else to fucking do and I have FOMO so I didn’t want to miss anything. But would I have missed much? Is school really worth the 7am alarm and the boring painful days? Let’s discuss it
Btw this isn’t me about to talk about smart shit like “you need to go for uni” or “it will make you successful” because firstly do I even want to go to uni? I don’t know. And secondly it won’t make you successful because how the fuck would that make any sense. I’m just talking about whether 6th year is really worth the emotional and physical burden so that I can help people in a similar situation to what I was a few months back. So let this be your guide or some shit but let’s get into it more
Honestly, the teachers become your friend in a way. Like they actually talk to you and respect you more and you can slabbed about the younger years with them. Like I had always seen the really loud annoying people chatting with teachers and I was eaither like “how the fuck” or “why the fuck” but now they actually want to talk to us and it is easy to talk to them too. I guess it depends on how nice they are but for me I’ve been lucky. I suppose there is this one teacher who makes me actually shit myself but I think she doesn’t try to and like she is funny and tells us stories about her family which is cute. We actually had such a great convo about squid games which I guess is quite random but like we were actually all vibing over it. And then they talk to you even in the bus park and it just makes you feel a wee bit special and like before people would think it was a bit weird but when you are 6th year it is absolutely great.
It is weird I guess to see your teachers as actual human beings. Like they talk about a life outside of school and actually being a living, breathing person. Obviously it isn’t like we are hanging outside of school with them but like they tell us stories about there weekend and while I try to look interested I can’t stop from getting an existential crisis. It happens though I guess. Teachers were actually one of the reasons I was questioning if I should go back to school or not because, to be fair all the teachers in my subjects are good, but like you do have preferences and I was scared I was gonna get crappy teachers who were rude to me but like not even. I love all my teachers and even the ones I don’t have you I used to not like are actually nice and respectful when you are walking down the corridor. It’s almost as if they realise we are a human with feelings as well.
School to Life Ratio
Obviously I can’t speak for everyone and every school, but for me I do 3 subjects and that means I get a few study periods each day, well apart from the odd day where I have none, and so I get all my homework and revision and shit done during those periods. And do you know what is great about that? You guessed it! I don’t have to do shit outside of school. To be fair, I maybe should but like also I don’t really need to so like deal with it. You would assume that would make me have more time to socialise and, you know, be a normal teen girl, but like it just takes the homework out of my day and I stay my normal depressed hermit self. And I’m fine with that to be fair. It’s better than be a depressed hermit doing homework. So yeah, I feel like I was really scared that I would be bombarded with work and I would always have my head in the books like a DWEEB (jokes) but no literally I haven’t done anything at home and while there is a lot of work and it is a tad more in-depth and difficult, I get to study the subjects I genuinely like and that always makes it easier. So you don’t have to study things you don’t give two fucks about and it is more of a relaxed atmosphere. But I don’t know, maybe I should be doing work outside of school. I guess I’ll figure that one out but at the moment I am getting by with just in school. I’ll keep yous updated I suppose…
I actually hate that sub-heading because I sound like the start of every ‘coming of age’ American high school movie to ever exist but I just don’t know what else to name it because, believe it or not, I am not a walking thesaurus. But just ignore that and we’ll move on. So what I mean is that, you know when you are in first year on like p1 or maybe just one of the younger years and you see the older ones walk by and you think they are the scariest, coolest people to ever exist and their presence is a blessing to you. Well, you kinda get to witness that in a new perspective. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel that way about myself and I do genuinely get scared of the small first years who literally have no filter or understanding of actual social etiquette after ‘rona, but there are a lot and when you walk into the 6th form room or just walk past them at all, you know they are looking up to you and that you will be in the right no matter what. In short, you basically run the school. Well, more so the upper 6th but like we are nearly there so deal with it. I do feel kinda bad sometimes though because in school I sometimes look like a bitch but like it kinda is their fault cause there annoying as fuck, but I feel like they might think I am judging them, but like I am not (not too much anyway) so like I don’t want to make them panic I suppose. So yeah lol, you definitely do finally have that power and knowledge that we instil some fear in their lives.
But yeah, I suppose that is the post all done. To summarise, I guess I would say that 6th form is so different from other years. It is more chill in terms of the number of classes, relationships with the people in your year and your teachers and just the overall respect and trust they give you. It feels more like a home I suppose and for anyone reading this to help them figure out whether they should or shouldn’t stay in school, I say don’t focus on the work because if you don’t go then I assume you don’t want to go to uni, which is perfectly fine as well, but I mean having bad grades is equal to having no grades at all, but you still get the experience of school. I am glad I stayed on to be honest and I would say just to think about what you genuinely want. Not what society or your parents want you to do, but what you think is best for you. Obviously all schools are different but I really enjoy school at the moment and that is a lot coming from someone who had the worst fucking years of school EVER. And I mean I was crying most nights and genuinely thought I would never make friends or go to a party or anything like that. But listen, you will get through it and if you go to 6th year and realise it isn’t what you expected/need in your life, then fucking leave. It’s voluntary and free (in public school anyways) so just test the waters because what have you got to lose? Pretty much nothing.
Also I feel like a lot of people wonder if being in voluntary school makes it easier because you aren’t forced to go by law, but like I don’t really think about it that much. Like it doesn’t affect how I think of school or studying. It doesn’t make me more or less motivated. It’s just a fact an nothing else. So yeah, I hope that helped and please do like, follow and comment if there are any other questions or problems you would like me to talk about. Let me be your older sister in a sense because it is a hard decision to make, I must admit. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

I’m not going to start slabbering about this hoe about the fact she might be listening to us, although I have a few creepy stories about that, or the fact she might be taking our personal information, because I mean why the fuck would anyone want to know that. Today I’m gonna talk … Continue reading Alexa | Let’s Discuss It
See, I don’t really like it when people are cheeky to me. I mean you can be upfront and shout at me and I’ll be fine with that. My sisters have conditioned me to that.

So I would like to preface that I am a 16 year old who had a part-time job so obviously if you are like a mum of 5 or something and you are thinking about quitting, I would think it through a lot more than what I am going to mention but like just for the lols I am going to tell you my personal opinion.
I had been working at a restaurant for ages and like it was good and stuff but like also fucking horrible because I was paid fuck all, I was treated like shit but customers and other staff and I was literally working very illegal hours. Like I worked 11 and half an hour shifts one time. And at the end of that shift I was scared that this drunk couple were about to jump me or something. I did love the drama to be honest, but like that was only every once in a while. Tips were alright like but I also don’t think that is the main reason I quit because I mean I feel bad for expecting tips. But I mean even fucking 10p to show your appreciation would be great. But no, I hated the job after a few months of working there and my manager was doing my fucking head in so I just quit. Let me explain some things more for you though to show you why I quit and then I’ll sum up my feelings and regrets.
Where the fuck do I even start. Well, I guess I’ll say that the other waiters and waitresses where all lovely and it was my bad for not speaking to them much because I am quite as fuck, but like I do kinda miss that side of it. But there was this one chef who thought he was Gordon fucking Ramsey and would shout at everything you did. He would switch it up sometimes though and would actually be nice but then I would know that in the moment because I was scared that if I laughed or smiled he would dice me up and put me in a stew. So he definitely did my head in and made work a living hell. The thing is that he wasn’t even head chef and would shout at you for nothing. My manager would be like that too. Like they were bipolar as fuck I swear to god. At the start I thought that my manager was really nice and that I just wasn’t good at my job/she was trying to hold in her judgements. But then a few days before I quit, me and the other people working were talking about how fucking annoying she is. Like the best way to explain it is if a Karen did a sneaky twist and actually became the manager. No joke. She had that “school receptionist/nurse” walk and just would stare at me with her eyes wide opening if I even breathed in her direction.
There was one time when it was really busy and I was like what the fuck is even going on and I thought I had just got everything under control and she came over and was like “why didn’t you ring these on?” and then I realised I forgot to ring on some drinks so I was like oh sorry but she was obviously pissed which I guess is understandable but also simmer down. And then later on I forgot again because I was just busy and it went out of my head, and then in front of the fucking customers (who were actually very nice) she went right up in my face and was like “why did you do that again? You can’t do that. That’s really bad. Why are you doing that? This is so bad for the business!” And here I am nearly in tears while she acts like I just bombed the place and the customers are right there and I am just smiling and apologising awkwardly. But I wish I could have said something and walked out because that would have been a bomb moment.
And the thing is, and I realise it now, is that I don’t get paid to give a fuck. I really don’t care if a fucking drink isn’t put on the bill. Maybe tell me again in another £5 pay raise and then we can talk, but like I am the one doing you a favour. I could quite easily get some police down and they would have a field day finding evidence that it is a sketchy fucking employment system, but no, I am going to try my best and if it doesn’t work out then fuck off.
So I am in 6th year, which basically means my last 2 year before I go to uni, so it’s stressful and a lot of work, but then I would have to end up doing a work shift after all that as well. Obviously that isn’t there fault because it was my choice, but that was a me problem. The weekend hours and the lack of breaks was what did it for me. So I said before that I did a 11 and a half hour shift, and that wasn’t my first one. I had done 2 other 11 hour shifts before and there was a time where I worked 6 days in a row. I mean I got the money and stuff but here is the catch. Firstly, that is illegal to even offer my age group those types of hours, and secondly, if your shift was over 5 hours, you were only given a 20 minute break. And it doesn’t mean that you get another 20 minutes after 10 hours. No. No matter how long your shift is, as long as it is over 5 hours you only get 20 minutes. It was paid to be fair but like here I am on an 11 hour shift and only 20 minutes break. I would gladly take an unpaid break because I was exhausted at the end. That basically from open to close and having to cope with all the lunch and dinner waves of people. Have to admit I was near in tears all of those times. And this was all on a minimum wage job which is like £4.62 per hour, so I wouldn’t even come home with enough to make it worth it. I would come home with some change and fucking back problem.
Do I even need to elaborate on this one? NO. But I will anyways. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many really nice customers that literally make your day and it doesn’t even take much to be in that category. Just a thank you and smiling and not ignoring them. Also, if they’ve made a mistake they have probably had a rough day so just be kind and act like it isn’t a problem. Now that we have cleared that up, lets talk about the Karen’s that you meet.
To be fair, I don’t think I have met them all because I only worked for a few months, but like I have seen more than enough. I have had people be like “this coke is flat” 10 minutes after I gave it to them. Like obviously it’s gonna go flat if you leave it for ages. I have had people swear at me, make me feel uncomfortable *cough*men*cough* and people that are just done right fucking rude. And I can’t do shit about it. There was this one time where this guy was like “can I call you honey” and here is me, 16 years old, just wanting to get his order and finish my fucking shift and just like “ha…” like what the fuck do I say. He literally could have been my granda but like… the audacity of this hoe.
There are also some guys that just wink at you, but I think that a majority of the time it is just what they do because they are literally with their girlfriend. So here I am literally “is that everything” and the guy is just here 😉 winking away and I’m like, charming tbh, but also what the fuck. It is funny though to be honest, especially when they pronounce things weird (although tbh I don’t know how to pronounce some of them) and there are times where people are like “what should I get” but as a literal question and I’m here like “I really don’t fucking know or care. Like I literally have 5 other tables and I don’t give a fuck” and here I am “umm people really like the crispy chilli chicken” and they go for something completely different like “oh right, I’ll go for the fish pie then please” and I’m just there like what the fuck. So 10/10 don’t recommend you do that to anyone.
So I think I am going to wrap it up there but also I have to tell you whether or not I regret quitting and whether or not it was a mistake. I have 2 words for you, FUCK NO. Best decision of my life. I mean I was depressed before my job but during it, that was shit. Like I now have a bit of time to myself, I don’t have to stress our about everything or whether or not table 6 got their bloody bbq sauce. Maybe it just wasn’t for me, but waitressing is not my thing and I respect those who do that as a full time job because I could not be coping. But yeah, that’s me all done and I hope you found this amusing or eye-opening in some sort of way. So if you take anything from this post, let it be this. You are the one doing your boss the favour, not the other way around, so leave that hoe. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
I haven’t posted in a while, obviously, and I ain’t gonna explain why because it’s more boring than you think.

Now, if your looking for some sort of “12% of children going into their first year of secondary school with anxiety brought on my the change of school” then you are out of luck bitch bitch there is one thing and one thing only that I will talk about in this post. And what is it you may ask? What is the biggest difference between primary and secondary school? The time.
What I mean by this is the fact that primary school felt like a shit ton of time. I mean it literally made up the first 10 years of our life. I remember it felt like P3 lasted for a million years and the rest went a wee bit faster but still seemed to be never ending. Not in the way that it was boring as hell, which it was, but I mean it felt like it was my whole life and the difference between P1 and P7 was such a jump and thousands of years apart. Yet, in secondary school, I am going into lower 6th and I feel like I was in 1st year last year. It is so weird and although I do feel like I am this old, I think that time has gone by so quickly. But then I say that and in the moment it actually feels like a fucking long time. Getting through each year didn’t feel fast but when you look back and actually process the information, it really has just flashed past you. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad it’s all over. I would definitely never do that shit again but like it’s weird.
And I can’t even say “time flies when your having fun” because there was not one ounce of it. And that isn’t an exaggeration. Like, if anything, I should be saying “time flies when you wake up disappointed that you actually woke up”. Like that is true. And in primary school we had the best of time eating glue, scrapping our knees, learning how to not pick our nose in front of people, but yet it felt like an eternity. Literally make it make sense.
Maybe it is because so much changes between P1 and P7. I mean you literally do go from a literal foetus child who only is just potty trained, to a preteen whose only personality trait is being the oldest in the school. I mean I am right aren’t I. And then from 1st year to upper 6th, you are actually fully aware that you are alive and have responsibilities and the only thing that really changes is you mature, you have a wee bit more knowledge, you get increasingly more terrified of the future, and, last but not least, your mental health is close to the point of no return. All fun right?!
Honestly though, I don’t mean to scare anyone that is going into high school or secondary school or whatever the hell you call it because we all go through different experiences and that’s fine. So your experience may be great, others may find it shit and that is fine because it’s normal. This is just a stage of your life that you need to get through and on the other end you can completely forget it and move on or use it as a show of your strength. And I’m not gonna tell you some bullshit motivational speech where I say “these years are the best years of your life” because that shit hurts, but also because you are the one who decides what the best years of your life are. I mean if these years are utter shite and you think “that’s the best years of my life wasted”, just think that it can only go up from here and that those years don’t define you. You had to hit rock bottom so you could push off stronger than ever and reach the heights you deserve. They don’t define you unless you want them to, so just hang in there ok. It goes by quickly, yes, but in the moments where it feels so slow, you gotta remember that it’s only a small part of the big plot of your life. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
The answer is no, but it is also a bit more complicated than that. Do I like the first day of school where everything is new, you get the new time tables, new classes, new teachers? Yes, you could say that. But in general, I really could not be arsed to go back. Lately when … Continue reading Back To School. Could I be bothered?

You’ve heard of NLP?
It’s almost cultish.
It stands for neuro-linguistic programming and it’s like someone had taken the best out of all forms of psychotherapy, threw them in a blender and created NLP.
If you don’t get what I’m saying, NLP is two things.
First, it is a way of thinking. It’s a framework for how to approach your life to be more effective. It’s like a philosophy of life based on understanding how your brain functions.
Second, it is a psycho-therapy tool. It’s used to treat phobias and to change beliefs in patients. Some consider it as effective as CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy) and most say it’s a lot faster than the Freudian school of thought.
Because at the core of NLP lies hypno-therapy. To be more specific, the “behavioral changing” part of NLP is built on the teachings of Milton Erickson, one if not the most famous hypnotherapists of all times. And you know what hypno-therapy does?
It’s an access, a hack, to your subconscious mind
Let me give you this analogy. Imagine your mind being like a computer. Your conscious mind is accessing programs, turning it on and off and so on. Normal user access. Your subconscious mind is like going into the settings, installing applications, deleting them, adding new users and so on.
It’s the “engine” or the “back room” that controls everything.
Well, NLP is like a hacker that can break the password of your subconscious mind and change there. It allows you to change beliefs and to change who you are, as a person, to your core. It goes to those deep thoughts and ideas you don’t even know you have and makes you act differently by tweaking your basic concepts of self.
It hijacks your subconscious mind, and it does it very well.
And with the use of NLP you can eliminate phobias, you can change basic preferences (as not liking chocolate anymore) or you can even cure wounds from the past, as those from childhood. It’s effective. It works well, and it’s endorsed by some of the best-known authors in the world. Tony Robbins built his career and success on NLP and if you run a survey amongst successful people, you’ll see that many of them are NLP practitioners or masters.
So why am I telling you this?
If NLP is like a hacker that tweaks your subconscious mind so you can become the person you want to be, if NLP is like a design tool that allows you to redesign who you are, then brainwave entrainment is a tool that makes it faster and easier.
If NLP is the thief that breaks the lock-pick, then the use of brainwave entrainment with it is like having the best lock-pick in the world, making the process effortlessly.
And what does this mean for you?
Use them both. Use the amazing power of NLP to change beliefs and self-identity concepts and use the power of brainwave entrainment to help your subconscious mind be receptive and open. Open the door with brainwave syncing and change the furniture with NLP.
A simple way to understand this is music.
Think about it and how easy it has the power to change you. You listen to a song and you’re not even paying attention to the lyrics. And yet, if it’s a sad song, you become sad. If it’s a lively song, it boosts your energy. If you listen it many times, you end up thinking like in the song.
Music is a great example of a tool that accesses your subconscious mind without even realizing. You turn on YouTube and through repetition and emotion, you end up being one with the music.
Have you tried reading a book you had no interest in reading? Maybe for college or work?
You read the words; they are verbalized in your mind but you end up forgetting everything. They “enter one year and exit another”. This is because your subconscious mind is as closed as it gets and learning can not happen in your conscious dimension.
Brainwave entrainment is amazing for helping your mind operate at that higher frequency. They’re like Vitamin C for your life, making everything better. And if you use brainwave entrainment, this is enough to attract, to manifest good things in your life because you’ll be operating at a higher level.
True, lasting change comes not by attracting things in our lives but by changing who we are so those things become a natural order. It’s when we change our beliefs and ideas so we transform into people for whom success and happiness are two natural things.
And this is where NLP works so well. It works for everything from curing phobias of spiders to getting past PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) to program you to be more confident in front of a crowd or to be more assertive with your coworkers.
This is because while short-term wins are great – if you want a successful life, you must become the person who is naturally successful. And the only difference between you and a successful person is that the other one developed the beliefs and identity of such a person. If you develop them too, there’s nothing stopping you from doing just.
I build my program “Manifestation Magic” around NLP.
Each audio contains hidden embedded commands that reprogram your subconscious mind. Like a good hacker, brainwave syncing is opening the path to your subconscious mind while NLP commands are transforming who you are into the best version you could ever be.
These are called “NLP patterns” and they’re designed to be as easy to receive by the subconscious mind as possible. I do this through a combination of pacing, intonation and wording so your mind can accept them as commands, as truth, without getting defensive. It’s like music, just so much more powerful.
Basically, an NLP pattern is what a hypno-therapist would tell you to put you into a trance. It is highly suggestive language that bypasses your rational filters to reach where it matters most, your subconscious mind.
NLP plus brainwave entrainment is like having a hacker change your mind. NLP alone can access your subconscious thoughts but when paired with brainwave entrainment, the results are mind blowing. You can see a real change in days when all other methods you’ve tried for a long time like therapy failed.
This is the secret behind “Manifestation Magic”.
This is why it works. It works because instead of just using brainwave entrainment to help you operate at a higher frequency, at a higher vibration, it also changes who you are at your core. The result is a total personal transformation into the person you’ve always wanted to be but never known how.

Have you always wanted to become a singer? Many people dream of singing, but few take the steps required to learn. Here are some quick tips that will teach you how to learn singing, on your own or with assistance:
<a href="allylav” rel="nofollow"><img src="https://singorama.com/wp-content/uploads/Banner-duo.gif" width="336" height="280" border="0" /></a>
Before you begin, listen to a lot of different songs in many genres. This will help you settle on a style that best suits your voice and personality. Do you want to sing rock music? Opera? Maybe country and western or rhythm and blues suits your style best.
Next, start practicing to find your natural vocal range. Sing a note that you can comfortably hit. Then sing progressively higher notes until your sound quality decreases. Go back to the first note and then sing down the scale to find the bottom of your range.
This is an informal exercise, but it will help you get an idea of which notes you can comfortably sing, and which ones you need to work on.
Many vocalists teach themselves to sing. Learning to sing by listening to other singers, without formal training, is called ‘singing by ear’. While some classically trained vocalists frown on this approach, it can lay the foundation for strong pitch recognition.
The problem with learning to sing by ear is that you can develop bad habits that are difficult to break later in life. Professional lessons can be expensive, though. Many singers find middle ground by using self-study courses.
Self-study singing courses typically contain videos or audio files that guide you through warm-ups and vocal exercises. They can help you expand your lung capacity, control your breathing, increase your vocal range, and sing smoothly across your vocal breaks.
If you decide to go this route, read reviews before you purchase a product. Some systems are better than others, so user reviews can be very helpful. You can find self-study singing courses online, or at your local library or book store.
If you would prefer to do your learning face-to-face, consider signing up for singing lessons. Look for voice coaches in your area, or get a referral from friends who have had a good experience with a particular instructor.
If the cost of voice lessons is a little steep for your budget, try joining a choir at your school, church, or community center. This will give you access to an instructor and other singers that you can trade tips and techniques with.
After you’ve spent some time practicing, you might decide that you really enjoy singing and want to do more of it. It can be a little daunting to sing solo when you’re accustomed to singing with a group, but a little practice will decrease nervousness.
You can use your self-study course or your instructor to learn advanced techniques like perfecting your head voice, reaching into your falsetto range, and developing a vibrato. You will also learn to read music and transpose your favorite songs into a different key so that you can sing them easily.
Now you know how to learn singing without putting a huge dent in your bank account. Have fun experimenting with different musical styles and gaining confidence in your voice!

Hey guys, so if you have read my blog before, you will know that I have a twin sister. We have pretty much the same friend group but there are a few people that she would be more friendly with than me because… well, I’m a socially awkward kinda bitch. But the reason the title of this post is “the audacity” is because she went out with one of her friends and I realised, she has a life away from me. That cheeky bitch.
Was that time we spent together in the womb not enough for her?! I mean how can she function and survive away from me. It just isn’t allowed. I mean if they asked me if I wanted to go out, would I say yes? Probably not because I am starting this thing called “slowly growing apart from others until I have no friends and eventually be in the elite level of depression”. It isn’t funny. I highly don’t recommend but I can’t go back now lol. I really can but that is besides the point. I then realised that my older sister and my mum and my dad have a life. They are not just characters that only live for my life. They have friends, a personality, they must be nice if people actually want to be around them. People see them as a friend or a co-worker and not as a parent or a sister. And sometimes you just gotta take a moment to realise all that and kind of understand the… what’s the word… the audacity. Even you, the person reading this, has a life. You are somewhere in the world doing something, maybe you are on a train, you are on a plane, you just woke up from a nap, maybe you are having lunch. I don’t even know! But you have a whole freaking life and by some miracle you are reading my own freaking post and I don’t know how low your day has got to get to reading this shit of a post, but hey, thanks I suppose.
Do you know what else makes me go “the audacity of that bitch” is whenever you are walking and a person that clearly sees you doesn’t move out of the way even a bit when the are taking up the whole path. Let me tell you a few stories about a couple of those times. So it was last Christmas. I was walking my dog as you do, and this kid, an obvious prick, was on his bike around his street. I was on the footpath and he was on the road and I was walking, minding my own business. There were no cars around or nothing. Just me on the footpath and him on the road. And guess what this idiot decides to do. He looks me straight in the eye, goes onto the foot path and cycles right into me. He nearly fucking hit my dog and I wouldn’t give as much of a shit if he hit me, but if he hit my dog, lets just say I would be on Santa’s naughty list and he would be on the ground. He is defo gonna be a chav when he grows up. I just glared and was just thinking that he is gonna be a prick to some poor person in the future. He is gonna be so mean to whoever he is around and I hope to fuck it ain’t me. Next time I plan to just stop and let him move out of the way first because ladies first bitch!
Another time something like this happened was literally last week and again I was walking my dog and it was in a forest park so the paths are a fine size, but there isn’t much space to go off the path if you needed to. So I was walking and this man and his wife we walking towards me. They dead-ass looked me in the eyes, they fucking saw me, and I moved to the side a bit to be polite because I know there is still the whole “respect your elders” bullshit, but I couldn’t move much further so I expected them to at least move to the side a bit, especially with the pandemilevato. But guess what, they don’t move an inch. Not a fucking millimetre and here I was looking like an actual ass because I had to turn into a fucking leaf just to not bump into them. And you may say they didn’t have enough room or they didn’t see me. But they looked right at me, they could have gone one behind the other or moved over a bit, and they did the same thing again. I am going to make a pact with you guys though, and you have to try and do the same. Next time you see that someone is going to do something similar to you, don’t move. Stand your ground and then if the people turn around and be like “your rude” or “why did you hit into me” just say “because I haven’t got no more fucks to give”. I mean quite obviously, don’t do this to a car or if you yourself are in a car because I don’t want to be charged for being the cause of a murder.
Reading through this post, the vibes changed quite quickly didn’t they, but I think that was a pretty relatable one if I say so myself. But anyways, don’t forget to like, follow and comment if you enjoyed that content. Make sure you check out some of my other posts as well because, not to toot my own horn, but some are pretty good. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
Now, if your looking for some sort of “12% of children going into their first year of secondary school with anxiety brought on my the change of school” then you are out of luck bitch bitch there is one thing and one thing only that I will talk about in this post. And what is … Continue reading The Biggest Difference Between Primary and Secondary School
I’m just gonna get right into this hoe because I don’t really know what to say as an introduction. Sorry to all my English teachers but guess what? I don’t give a fuck, so I’m gonna get into it and tell you some things that I really want to see some day and I don’t … Continue reading Things I Would Like To See One Day But I Haven’t Yet
Bare with me on this one guys because I know the title makes it sound dumb as fuck, but we need to address this shit. I will literally make everything make sense to you because I know you know this but you don’t know that you know it yet, if that makes sense. Basically, you … Continue reading Social Media If They Were People pt.1
In the many years of my school life, there are a lot of things I have realised, such as the quiet kids are forgotten and the loud, rude ones are adored. And there are many more, so I want to address some as if I had to tell a teacher what I think. If you are a teacher and you learn from this then you are as good as a teacher who already does these things already. Just because you hadn’t done these before, doesn’t mean you are a bad teacher because if you changed some things then it shows that you actually do care and I respect that so much.
I wish that teachers started to talk more to their quiet students because I am one of them and, although it sounds a bit attention seeking, we have things that we are worried about and need help with, but we are too afraid to ask because that comes with so many repercussions, like drawing attention to ourselves and getting judged or shouted at by the other loud ones. I do understand that a lot of you do try but then because we are a bit awkward and quiet, you don’t really talk to them anymore. And I understand how that must be so awkward for you, but if you talked to us more than just the one time, you would see that we are actually nice people with a lot of things to say, we just don’t have the voice or confidence to say it. I know that for me, it means so much for a teacher to just say hello or just appreciate that we are there because a majority of the time, we get drowned out by the other people who act like complete idiots and are being so disrespectful to you. I just wish that teachers got to know all of their students and understand how they are feeling and what they are getting stuck on because it can be really tiring sometimes when you feel like you aren’t getting heard because despite the fact we stay quiet, we actually have an opinion. And to add to that, make sure that you don’t let the quiet people get bullied especially in your class because it is so obvious sometimes but teachers usually just laugh at them like “boys will be boys”. Showing that you care makes a big difference in our life.
This is such a big one and since somebody mentioned this to me, I have always thought about this whenever meeting a new teacher. Are you a human before a teacher, or a teacher before a human. Now I am not accusing teacher’s of being literal lizards or something, but what I mean by this is, do you empathize with your students and understand that we make mistakes or forget things at times. And maybe you remember that nobody is good at everything so if we are struggling, actually understand and help instead of rolling your eyes like we are a burden. Here is a quick test to see whether you are a human or a teacher first.
- When someone forgets their books do you a) shout at them and give some form of punishment or b) say that is ok and to try and remember next time
- When someone forgets their homework do you a) shout at them and give a detention or b) tell them that is ok and to try and hand it in as soon as they can
- When someone stops doing well in class do you a) embarrass them and make them seem lazy and a failure or b) after class ask them about what is going on in their life they need help with or just anything in class they need help with
- When someone is late to your class do you a) tell them to stay after class and interrogate them for why they are late and tell them to never do it again or b) welcome them in warmly and if it happens multiple times ask them how everything is.
- When someone doesn’t participate in class do you a) put them on the spot or point out their quietness or b) ask them if they are ok or just don’t understand anything
I could go on all day asking you questions like these, but I think we have enough. If you answered mostly a) then you are a teacher before a human. If you answered mostly b) then you are a human before the teacher and I applaud you. When you are a human before a teacher, you are caring and understand students abilities and emotions and you actually care about their wellness and future. But if you are a teacher before a human, you are teaching them that mistakes are wrong and they are going to be useless. You teach them how to live in a military society and make them feel unwelcome and as though they are stupid. So please just know that we are just kids and teens who literally have no fucking clue what is going on or who we are. We have so many things to think about outside of school and just because we don’t do everything perfectly, doesn’t mean we are rude or disrespectful, we just need a bit of time to collect ourselves.
This happened to me just the other day where I was walking down the corridor and this teacher, who had clearly seen me, was walking past. This was an empty corridor, just me and her, and I went as close to the side as I could to be polite because, respect your elders and all that. But she literally barged into me and didn’t move as though I was the problem. Just because you have been on this earth for longer than me, doesn’t mean you can disrespect us. Respect goes both ways, so if you are getting talked over by students or generally not listened to, you probably just need to show us the respect we deserve. Don’t get me wrong, the younger years are bloody annoying so it is ok to put them in their place, but for the older years, we are nearly adults and at this point we are sick of your shit. We aren’t all bloody chavs and literal idiots and we do respect you, but only if you give us the same back. I just find it rude that they think everything they do is right and we are just invisible because we don’t want to be here any more than you do. You chose to be here. You get paid to be here. And all we get is a busy schedule and mental health problems.
The last point that I wanted to mention today was that we actually appreciate some motivational talks, but it just depends on what type of one it is. Now, if you give us the same bullshit as everyone else, like on the first day back when you give us a talk about how we are gonna do so well and that we are going to make this year so great… save your breathe because we have heard that 10 times in one day already. There are some teachers that genuinely are so nice with what they say and you can tell in their voice and the way they look that they do actually mean what they are saying and actually care. These talks are the best, and when said at the right times, can make our day. My English teacher did one today and it did make my day a bit better. It was still a shit day, but not as bad as it could have been. But listen close to this. If you are ever going to make a motivational speech, no matter when you say it, don’t ever diminish what we are going through. This isn’t even just because of corona. This is every time of the year, in any decade, in any month, never make our situation look easier than it seems. I don’t mean that you should just say “your life is shit, school is shit and it will never get better” because we need to know that someone actually has hope. What I mean is that you shouldn’t be like “but if you think about it, you are actually really lucky and your better off than other years because blah blah blah blah blah”. Turn that shit off because I don’t wanna hear it. This happened not long ago from another teacher and I was just looking at her as if she just was mental because who the fuck is she to tell us how we should feel. She literally could have said something like “keep your head up because I am going to get you guys through this and you will do great” but instead you really had to assume what we think and feel. I do not feel luckier than any other years and I most certainly don’t think I got it easier because this has fucking sucked so much and having you put words into our mouths is making this situation feel so much worse. You make us feel isolated or dramatic because we think nobody else feels this way. Try not to be too uplifting with things and think before you speak I guess.
If you are a teacher and you have made it this far, you are a real one. I know that you care and aren’t offended by what I said because it is the truth and you want to help improve your students lives. I really appreciate it if you are one of those teachers because you are going to change someone life. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
You have to admit, there are a lot of weird things that we have made as a society and this is kinda just funny to me. I don’t know why though, but like the concept of a bucket list is so weird. We literally plan out a step-by-step guide to what we are going do before we die, but we rarely even finish it. And the name too! I just realised not that long ago that it is called a bucket list because it is a list of things you want to do before you kick the bucket. That is funny to me for some reason. We just normalise it, like “hey, what do you plan to do before your heart starts beating and you fall into the unknown?” Hmm, let me think Jessica. And then we literally have the audacity to put the most meaningless things in it like ‘eat a boojum burrito’ bitch people do that every day, I mean it isn’t that hard. Or they would say ‘get rid of all of my toxic friends’. You should be doing that anyways Britney! Like you aren’t that special.
It also seems quite creepy whenever people tick things off the list and then you are just thinking “ah, one step closer to being able to die happily” like the fuck! What are you gonna do when you finish the list? It isn’t a bloody scavenger hunt. It isn’t like a game where you win after completing all your tasks. And besides, if you have it all done by the time you are 30, 40 or 50, you still have at least half of your life left so what are you going to do? Just sit on the sofa with a deranged smile on your face thinking “I am completely depressed with fuck all going on in my life, but hey, I finished my bucket list lol”. I think I would prefer to be spontaneous and live life as it comes and do things when I get the chance. Why would you see a sign for something and be like “yes, let me add that to my bucket list even though there is a 100% chance I will never actually do it because it is just a fucking piece of paper”. Go and do it! You have the option to do it now! And I know that is a bit hypocritical from what I had just said about doing everything quickly, but it means that you don’t have to stick to a plan, you can just go and look back later and think “damn I really did that much”.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I want to be able to have a life that people would want to have on their bucket list… if that even makes any sense. But you get what I mean. We all make our lives so structured and so laid out that we miss out on all the opportunities we could of had, just to achieve goals that we don’t always meet. What if, instead of a bucket list, we had a bucket diary where we write down everything exciting that we have done because then you can look back at your relaxed, eventful life and see the things that you hadn’t even planned to do but loved. We can’t live our lives like levels of a game, we gotta make it into a book. The most exciting thing that anyone has ever read. That way you can live your life as though it will be a best selling book instead of waste of paper.
We need to stop misusing our privilege, but we need to start using it effectively
I saw a tiktok yesterday. It was a black girl who was talking about the time she was at a peaceful protest for BLM. She said that all the white people there would be throwing rocks and water bottles at the police, but the thing is, they were all at the back. And thanks to racist police, they would attack those at the front, the people of colour. She talked about how she had to shout for the white people to get to the front because they were the ones angering the police, but it wasn’t them who were getting tackled down and arrested. And it really made me open my eyes. I mean, it was great that they had people of all races at the protest but what they do is what makes it all go to shit. So instead of just hiding behind the people who will get much worse consequences for something they didn’t actually do, we need to up at the front, using our white privilege as a shield. This is really important.
Also, can I ask you guys something. I have heard kind of mixed answers from this before, however all of them have actually come from white people. Is it offensive to say black woman, or black man etc. because I know that saying white people is fine, but then again our situations are so much different. So could someone please tell me if it is ok to say that or if there is something else I should say instead. That would be greatly appreciated guys!
We need to stop ignoring others, but we need to start accepting and growing
This also came from a tiktok video. It was this guy who had a stutter. I actually talked about this yesterday, but he was saying how it is offensive for people to say “did I stutter?” because it makes it seem that stutters make you less smart or valid than others. And I am going to admit, when I first watched it, I was thinking “but that isn’t what I mean, maybe he just misunderstand it. I am not ablest”. Then I caught myself. I realised that by saying that, I was being so ignorant. If someone with a certain disability or difference says that something is offensive or insulting, they are right. Every. Single. Time. Me, a person with no speech impediment has no fucking right say that someones opinion is invalid because I have no fucking clue what they go through or how they feel. We need to stop defending ourselves and saying “but I’m not ablest” or “I’m not racist so that’s not racist”, or anything like that. Just because we may see ourselves in a certain way, doesn’t mean we necessarily are. The people we talk to have just lived a lifestyle where they will get into trouble if they speak out against it. So if you really “aren’t racist” or “aren’t ablest”, then admit your were wrong, apologize, learn, and grow from this.
We need to stop saying, but we need to start doing
I find that I do this a lot. I always support BLM and equality and other stuff like that, but I say that. I don’t necessarily show it. And showing it is so much more important. Now I could sit here and write you a list of excuse, like the pandemic, or my mum can’t drive me to a protest, but that won’t get me, or anyone else, anywhere. A lot of privileged people, including me, make sure that everyone around them knows they are such an accepting person. They will have all over their Instagram BLM shout outs and pride flags, but you will never see them in the thick of it. It has become their personality trait. And I could imagine that when you guys, who need privileged people to help, hear this stuff, you just stare at them like “and?”. That does fuck all. So save your time creating hundreds of posts that everyone skips past, go out and do it. Stop saying and stop doing. I know this is something I need to work on too.
We need to stop assuming, but we need to start asking
In my school year, we aren’t really that diverse. Now, it isn’t a school that purposely does that, but I live in Northern Ireland which unfortunately isn’t really diverse over all. So that means that I don’t have any friends that are colored, or disabled, or other discriminated groups. The only groups I would ever be around are the LGBTQ+ community and people with mental health problems (if that even counts) or learning problems. This isn’t me trying to prove myself so lets move on. A lot of the things are here about what others go through are from online, from people who only have 60 seconds to explain, or people who are also just assuming and don’t actually know what others are going through. This is partly why I made that post yesterday asking you guys to leave a comment about what you go through and how you want us to help or what you want us to understand. Getting information from people who aren’t even affected by it can be so harmful because then we make the wrong assumption, put it into action, and mess everything up. As a socially awkward person, I am not good at talking to new people, especially if they aren’t in my school classes, but I have 200+ followers who, for some reason, like my content, and I want to ask you guys because I want to flush out all the fake information from my brain and fill it in with the truth.
I also want to ask something to you, if you go through discrimination in your life. Would it be ok for someone to go up to you and ask you questions about what you go through and how they can help. I mean, you probably wouldn’t be ok with a stranger, but even someone you are familiar with. Just so that my followers know and feel more confident asking others so hopefully this will allow us to become more informed about the situations in our home towns. And also, if you are comfortable, could you comment down below anything you want us to know. Whether that is stories, things you want us to know, or things you want us to do. Just so that people can read them and learn.
Anyways, thank you so much for reading this. Please feel free to tell me if there is something I left out or said that was offensive to you in any way. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
Here is the thing with people. Most of them can’t take a fucking hint. Say I wanted to even just go to a park, I could say ‘going to the park now would be fun’ and they would be as clueless as I am during an English test. And now I know that you are going to say that “girls are so confusing, when they say one thing, they mean the other” and you know, maybe at some times, but sometimes it is so fucking clear that a bird would fly into it. That was a pretty bad metaphor, but you get the idea.
This has happened for every single man I have talked to, although to be fair that isn’t that many lol. But the thing is that they never get what I mean. Now I don’t know why this is. Maybe it is because men are used to people just being straight up, or they literally don’t get it, but it is so aggravating. You guys out there will be telling us to just say what we mean, but that isn’t always easy. We try to not be so direct because, maybe, we want someone to do something for us because they understand us and what we want. Or maybe it is a difficult topic to talk about. I know that sometimes, for me, I am not straight up because I want to trick myself into thinking that they came up with the idea themselves and they actually care about me. I guess that kind of sums up my old relationship, but it is true. I mean, you guys should relate to this, right? You have been taught to hide your emotions and “be a man” and, although I am not comparing your problems to ours, we still feel anxious to open up fully. I think it is kind of common for everyone.
The thing that aggravates me though is that it never processes in their brain. You can see in their eyes that what your just said has slipped past them. There was this one time that I was so obvious, it nearly wasn’t hinting, and it was an important topic, but he still wouldn’t understand. The situation was that I was the only one really in the relationship and that he never cared about me or listened to what I had to say. It was pretty toxic and bad for my mental health but I stayed with him for so long because I felt that is what I deserved. But what I tried to do is get him to ask me out on dates and text me first and stuff like that, basic relationship shit. Did he change? Nope. Well, he texted me once. It was the driest conversation I had ever had but at least he did the bare minimum. And no, he never messaged me again. Well until he broke up with me over text after 2 and a half years. So he either didn’t get the hint, or he got the hint and felt it was too much for him to be a basic, considerate human being. Damn that was kind of a rant, sorry about it. But it just annoys me that they can never read between the lines and empathize with us. Even if you aren’t sure, just ask them a few questions to figure it out. Say they hint that they are bored, ask them if they want to go somewhere. If they say yes, take them to their favourite place. Even a trip to Tescos is one of the best things to do.
And I will say it again, it is not all men, but the men I know have all been like this and I still have yet to meet a guy who understands a girl. Here is a tip for you people in a relationship, better safe than sorry. So basically, ask them more about what you think they want or just go for what they are talking about, instead of “playing it safe” and not doing anything at all. But I do empathize with the fact that it might be due to how you were raised to fit the standards of “a man” and I also want to say that being emotional or kind doesn’t make you any less of a man. In fact, it makes you more of one, OK? Anyways, I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
This is the phrase that I get told every single time that I talk about not wanting to get back to school. I complain and to try and comfort me they say, it is only 5 weeks and then you can have summer off. Yeah, that is easy to say when you aren’t in it. But it isn’t JUST 5 weeks because what is in those weeks that is so fucking scary and I don’t know how they will go.
So as most of you will know, I am in my GCSE years, meaning that all order and security has just jumped out the window, and soon I will be following if they don’t figure this shit out. Let me tell you what are in the next 5 weeks. The first week. This one will be fine I guess. I only have 1 test but the thing I am not looking forward to is the multiple teachers shouting at me for not doing my homework because I literally have given up, or in other words, I don’t give a fuck. So that week will be riveting I guess you could say. Now we go to week 2. Where should I fucking start? Maybe with the fact that on Monday I have 3 tests. I swear they said that wasn’t allowed, but we move. Except they are literally all one after the other. I also have three more that week which is not ideal. I mean I guess it would be fine if I was prepared but… well… I am not. Do you know what else? I don’t even care. Wow I sound like such a rebellious teen, but in a less fun way, I have desensitized myself from caring because I feel like it is still going to be cancelled or, by some miracle, I will pass the exams. Please tell me I am not the only one that feels like no matter what, I will fail, so why try and put effort into it because it will only hurt more. So yeah that is the plan currently
Right, I am not going to go and list all the weeks now because you kinda get the gist don’t ya. Over all, saying that it is only 5 weeks angers me to the max because there is so much more to it. I already know that my mental health will get even worse, somehow. And then, just like everyday, we won’t be recognized for it and we will have to go through our day like normal, with the judgement of teachers as they see you don’t know shit. I have to say, I am lucky enough to have some genuinely nice teachers, but they still don’t understand us fully. They only understand the hardship of zoom classes, to an extent, but they are over now. They seem to have literally forgotten that our life isn’t all about school. I know that it is my fault for not starting revision, but I swear to god, if they ask “who has been revising” and everyone puts their hand up, I will be crying, so get ready.
And then, when all the tests are done and over with, I still have to spend the next weeks panicking about how I am gonna fail and end up on the streets and being shunned from society. Those 5 weeks are just the start of it and those 5 weeks determine my whole future, how I turn out, what I become, my mental health, everything. So excuse me if I complain about this a bit because I have tried my best to stay calm through this whole global panini, but now I am getting stressed, I don’t know what to do, how to start, what to learn, anything. And I am getting no answers no matter how much I ask and look for the solution. Trust me, if it was as easy as sitting down for an hour and reading, I would do it… maybe. But the point is that whenever I say something is bothering me, it mostly likely means it is eating me inside because I don’t always like to complain. Our whole generation has been too quiet for too long so don’t ignore us if we are scared for something because it can mean so much for us that you will never understand. I am shitting myself for these 5 weeks and there is so much more to it that I can’t explain it, but just try to be nice to the teens in your life because I know for A FACT that they aren’t having a good time at the moment. Whether there is a lot to do, or we blow things out of proportion, it is equally as stressful and just saying to “relax” and “it is only 5 weeks” will not help. Please try to be more sympathetic to all of us and give us time to deal with this. Our future rides on this and yet we don’t have the strength to try. It is frustrating, I will tell you that for free, but we aren’t robots and we need to do things our own way.
So yeah, that was a tad bit of a rant to be honest, but over all, I am terrified and I have no words to describe it. I have played so many outcomes in my mind and none of them are good. Although I am trying my best, my best isn’t very good at the moment. We don’t want to let you down either. But yeah, if you are an adult out there, just be a bit kinder and sympathetic. And if you are a teen, you aren’t alone, take as much time as you need to get through this and try to take one day at a time. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
This post sounds like it is going to be really sentimental and I mean, I suppose it it, but just let me tell you what the sentence says. So, one day I was walking around town with my friends and we went into this shop just for the lols and then when I saw this I thought that I just needed it. It was actually on a card but I thought that it would be a nice decoration for my room. Now, I look at it every day and just think that I have never seen anything more powerful in my life
A wise woman one said “fuck this shit” and she lived happily ever after
I mean periodt. I now live my life like that woman because it is s true. Maybe it has gone a bit too far though because I use this whenever I have a slight inconvenience in my life. I can’t finish one of the Math questions? Fuck this shit. I am not instantly perfect at something? Fuck this shit. You know what I mean. But I guess it is a good thing to live off because you really can’t be taking life too seriously. I mean think about it. We are living on a rock flying around a ball of gas in a massive empty space that is constantly growing into some unknown thing which has been around for billions of years, yet we are made to sit in school for the first 20+ years of our life to learn about shit that doesn’t mean anything to us and we also have the audacity to care about what others think. Basically everything we know is a theory too. The structure of the earth is a theory, evolution is a theory, the atomic structure is a theory. Pretty much everything is a theory that we choose to believe as the truth. We have made giant pieces of metal fly in the sky with people in it and we have made massive skyscrapers. The world is so fucked up yet so amazing. There are so many things we know and yet we know nothing at all. It is the biggest joke and yet we take it seriously. We actually give a fuck what people think. People that will, one day, never be in our life again and will one day die and forget that time you did something embarrassing.
We gotta all stop taking life so seriously because no matter how many homework’s you miss, no matter how many times you get turned down or dumped, no matter how many times you fail, it means fuck all because it will have no massive income on any of this. Now, you can take this in the wrong way and think “then what is the point in doing any off this”, or you can take this in the better way that we just need to live our life the way we want to and get remembered as the baddest bitch who gave no fucks. It is just like the saying “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” so go and fucking do what you want because you never know, that could make an impact of others. They might be inspired by you, look up to you for years, be in history books. The thing about life is that you either get remembered for something massively impactful or nothing at all. That’s great! You won’t get remembered for the time you told someone you liked them but got rejected. You wont be remembered for the time you tripped up, or the time you failed a test, or the time you forgot the lines in a play. It may seem so big in the moment, but we all just gotta remember that this shit means nothing and that doesn’t even count for a fraction of the time of the universe. The universe will go on for billions of years so that one moment will be so insignificant that it won’t matter, so why should you dwell on it?
So if you are gonna do anything, be that wise women and say “FUCK THIS SHIT”. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
Hey guys, so I just wanted to say well done for getting through this week. I am sure there has been a pile of new challenges for all of you guys but the fact you are here to read this is amazing. I also kind of just wanted to make a point of saying thank you to all of you because we have made it to 167 followers! I feel so blessed to have all of you supporting me and I feel like I have 167 friends now. It kind of shows me that we are all going through something tough and need someone to be there when we go through it and I am so happy to be that person for you guys.
But I want you to realise something from this achievement too. My followers come from all over the world, yet they have similar emotions and thoughts and problems. We always feel alone in this world and although this group is only a very small fraction of it, it just proves that you aren’t doing any of this by yourself. I hope you realise that no matter what, all of us have your back and no matter what happens we will support you. I feel like all you guys are good people. You aren’t racist, you aren’t trump supporters, your not homophobic, and you are accepting of everyone, so please feel free to use this as an outlet for your feels. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to create a post to put on my sight. I would love to see the perspective of other people going through different journeys because I know that I can’t relate to all of you guys but I want to spread the word that you aren’t alone. And of course, if you want me to I will make it an anonymous post. I will not take all the credit for your work but if you want I will just say it is from an anonymous creator.
But yeah, just for this weeks weekly reminder, try to keep it in mind that although this earth may feel lonely as hell, I promise you there are other’s out there who are ready to listen to what you have to say, to be there for you, that want you to be there. But please do comment and subscribe so we can be lonely together. Because I don’t know what you are going through, you don’t know what I am going through, but we can still stick together and get through this together. I am going to say the cliche ‘there is a light at the end of the tunnel’ because, although it is bloody frustrating, it is also true, and the people who care about you are willing to wait at the end of the tunnel for as long as you need.
Can I also recommend a book to you guys. It is written by a famous tiktoker from New Zealand who has went through so much shit in her life. She wrote a book about her experiences with depression and the things she had to go through. Her tiktok is Jazzthornton_ and please go check her out and her book she is such an inspiration and it brings hope into the lives of many. Click on the picture and you can get one now
Thank you so much for reading. I hope this helps and please like, follow and comment if there are things you would like to share. Quick disclaimer that this is an affiliate link however I truly do recommend that you guys read this book. It is so inspiring. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
No I am not about to do a proper “face reveal”. I am talking about the fact that as a teenager we are expected to understand who we are and what we want to do for the rest of our lives, yet, the fact is, nobody has any fucking clue. And that’s ok
I always thought that I understood what I wanted to do. There was a guy I liked since primary school, I wanted to be a police woman and probably move to America or something. But, to describe it in 2 words, shit happens. The guys I liked emotionally destroyed me, I don’t know if I want to be restricted to working in one place, and, well, do I really need to say anything about America? No. The other thing is, that isn’t who I am. The job I get, the person I have a relationship, the place I live, isn’t who I am. I don’t think I ever have and I don’t know if I ever fully will.
I am in my last year of GCSEs, so I am nearly 16. Not even 2 decades have I lived on this earth, yet I have made so many life changing decisions that I can’t go back and change. There are so many things that are shut off now because of what I had to choose, yet it could have been something that was perfect for me. And it is crazy because you let us make life changing decisions, but you don’t let us watch a scary movie in the cinema. My life is a horror movie in itself so I don’t think a movie will scar me. You let us make life changing decisions, but you don’t let us go to the toilet when we need to, we gotta ask the teacher. You let us make life changing decisions, but speak down to us like we are dirt. It really doesn’t make sense. How do I know that in 20 years I will still want to do the thing that 16 year old me wanted to do. So many things change and if I shut the door to things now then what if I need it in the future.
It is bloody scary because I do not want to end up in a job that I took just to pay the bills. I want to get a job that makes me excited to start the day, because I don’t know how I would survive anything else. I want a job that fits in my pocket. That I can take to the beach with me, on trips, on a boat, on my sofa in my dream home. I don’t want to wake up each morning thinking that I NEED to do work. I want to wake up and think I WANT to do work. So what can get me that? A degree? A but load of debt from Uni? All A*s on my report card? Well, that is what the school system has taught me, and sure, they teach us everything, right? Hell no. They want me to be a part of the system so why would they teach me to get out of it? Now, not all teacher’s are like this, but I know so many that suck the life out of you and pretty much desensitize you to life and convert you into a factory lifestyle. And yes, we do have the world at our finger tips. I can search up how to start a business, how to make money and get out of the ‘rat race’ but let me tell you something. It is fucking tiring and yes I know I have a blog on how to make money but that is just my way to try and make it easier for those my age. We get so much homework that we have no bloody time to think for ourselves, none at all. I am lucky enough to have learnt a bit but only because of lock down. I would have to say that it was a blessing because it was my time to actually crawl my way out of the system, and that has brought me to many difficulties along the way.
I still don’t know who I am and I know that you don’t to. I guess I just wanted to tell everyone that if you are feeling the same way, it is totally ok. I know you are always told to just take the subjects you like and the choices you feel comfortable with and I do believe that to an extent, especially with subject choices. But since when did success come easy? Weren’t we told to take risks if we wanted to be successful. We are told so many things every day, every week, every year. And now we don’t know what or who to listen to. Don’t beat yourself up for feeling confused on how to move forward with your life. You may not know for a while, but you need to know that when you find that thing that you want to do, it will be so much easier to fight through the tough moments. Getting to the place you want to be will be so much easier, so don’t try to force your way into something that will make you feel horrible. I am sorry you haven’t got the support you need to discover who you are but it is ok and you aren’t alone. I could guess that a majority of adults don’t know who they truly are. We are still young though. Although we are expected to do a lot, we still have the time to travel and change. Don’t worry if you make a bad decision because if it is meant to be, you will get there eventually.
Our whole life is dedicated to discovering who we are and some people find out to late. My advice? Sacrifice the things people think you need to succeed, and do the things YOU know you need. They probably won’t believe in you but use it to drive you. Think of there face when you tell them ‘I now get payed for something I love, something I believe in, and all that worry and pain of getting there is so worth it”. I believe in you guys, OK? And I believe that everything is going to be ok, no matter who you are. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
When we grow up, we are told that doctors, teachers, lawyers and politicians are important. That, if we want to get an impactful job, these are the ones to go for. But I have been thinking lately, because a couple of years back I had been talking to someone working in my house and something clicked with me.
So, a cheeky wee story time guys. We had a man over who was covering up a huge hole in our wall and doing the plastering and stuff, whatever you call it. My mum made him a cuppa tea and told me to bring it up to him and, being the EXTREMELY extroverted character I was happy to help but no, he was actually nice LOL. Anyways, so here I was, going up the stairs and I was like “tea question mark”:o and he was like “yup” :/. But then as I was going down the stairs we were just having a wee chit chat and he was like “what age are you?” so I slapped him on the face and ran away because stranger danger. No, sorry I will stop with the jokes. But I was like “15” and he was like “do you know what you want to do when you grow up” and I was like “have a life”. Ok sorry that was my last one I swear. I said a police woman maybe and he was like “that’s good. Just stay in school so you don’t end up doing plastering like me”. And that is when it clicked in my head. I wish I had said this to him but then again I was like 30 years younger and half his height so I didn’t want to look stuck up giving a pep talk to an adult. But what I realised is that he thinks his job is unimportant and that it should be avoided, but the thing is, if there were no plasterers, then everybody’s house would go to utter shit. If we didn’t have him to help us, my dad would have ended up doing a crap job at it and our house would be ugly as fuck (sorry dad). So who’s to say his job isn’t important but I know that I am greatful for his work because now our house looks nice again. Yes, maybe the whole world can’t tell that but sometimes helping one person can make a big difference in their life.
And another thing similar to this is like when someone has to work at McDonalds or a store for the rest of their lives. Yes, maybe they may not have wanted to this, but we can’t judge them for it because they make that business work. We couldn’t have a shop without a cashier or someone to restock the shelves because nothing would go the way it is supposed to. They may not seem like glamorous jobs but they are so important. We kind of just gotta look at the big picture of things because a lot of times people don’t realise how much someone means to them until they are gone. So if all the Tesco’s workers disappeared, we would be freaking out because now we don’t know where things are. We can’t return anything, all the shelves are empty, people are stealing things, causing fights, there are messes everywhere. So whether you are a worker out there who feels like there job doesn’t make an impact, just think of what would happen if you all disappeared. Let’s even say you cut the grass for a living. If all of you disappeared, there would be gardens that would grow so disgustingly long that the street isn’t pretty anymore. So many things are growing and crawling in there and they feel disappointed in their garden. But the fact that you guys are here means that people can look outside and feel proud of the place they live in. People driving by will see the street and think, damn, that is beautiful, right? And to those who judge people who don’t have a typical ‘important’ job, just know that the job they do is obviously important and if we didn’t have them we would really struggle, so have some compassion and thank them for their work because they are so important for how the community functions.
So I hope that meant something to someone. It really is true. Every job has importance and although it may be not be obvious at first thought, just think what would happen if your job didn’t exist. What would happen? What would that change for people? How would the world look? No matter the job, people will appreciate you. I mean I still appreciate the plasterer even after a couple of years because no my house, my home, is comfortable and complete. Keep your heads up and don’t let anyone put you done. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
I’m not sure if I have mentioned this before but I have been trying to find ways to make money during lock-down so I can get out of hell, I mean school. I have found lots of ways actually and I have even made another blog about it. But I wanted to share one of the things I have made that is actually really cool and you guys should defo check it out. It is completely free and this isn’t an affiliate link, I just really think you guys should check it out.
So the website is called Teemill and what you can do is make your own online fashion store. Not even joking, and it is completely free. I will send you guys a link for what I have made and to be fair it is really fun. It doesn’t take long to set up and you get around 10% of the profits which is pretty good because you don’t put any money in before. Here is the link to my one – https://affiliateen.teemill.com/
I wanted to share this because, as a teen, it is really fucking hard to find normal looking clothes that I actually like, especially as a girl. I am self-conscious and have the body shape of a piece of paper, so a lot of things don’t suit me. Although I am not necessarily making these clothes for me, I like to think I am helping out others that feel this way. I have some funny stuff and some motivational stuff. Like for example, I made one based of the post ‘for who‘ which actually seemed to blow up which is pretty cool if you ask me, and I also made one for women empowerment and I kind of really like it if you ask me. Here, I’ll show you some wee photos.
Yeah so that is just a few of them and the designs come in different hoodies, t-shirts and tote bags. I don’t know why but I found this really cool and random to do. As a teenager there are many things that people assume we like, but sometimes we just gotta go for the classics, so defo go check those out and go make some yourself. There are really cool things you can do with this and you can pay for the whole thing, but I use the free version which is pretty much all I need for starting up.
My favourite thing though is that it is an eco-friendly business. They print all the tops and everything and they are made of recycled cotton I am pretty sure. But yeah, if you have some spare time you should get started on this. If you want a step by step guide on how to do this then go to may blog Affiliateen. Please don’t get the idea that this is just basically an ad. I just wanted to put it up to inspire people to just do what you want. I mean now you can go out and say you have your own clothing designs and that is pretty fucking awesome. The sky is the limit and I am so excited to see what you guys are gonna create because people will really benefit the fact that you have made clothes that they actually like. Don’t try to impress anyone with it. Just make what you want and you will find people just like you who want the same type of clothes.
So yeah, I hope this helped some of you and I would love to see what you guys make. Leave any comments of other types of clothes you would like me to make and I would be happy to make them. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
Hey guys, so listen, I know that for a lot of us out there, this week has been so fucking tough and I know that you don’t have the words or the energy to explain how you feel but I have an important message that I really want you to hear and I promise I will keep it short.
Whenever you tell someone ‘I am really tired and struggling this week’ and they say ‘yeah everyone is at the moment’, I just want you to know that, although it is true, that doesn’t take away the fact that you deserve to get help with your thoughts. Just because a lot of people are struggling, doesn’t mean that that makes your situation any less because it still affects your life just as much as before. You need to focus on yourself and realise that it is ok to not be ok as long as you get help. Don’t think that it is ok to struggle like you do now because ‘everyone must feel the same way’. That is there problem and the only person you need to take care of right now is yourself because you can’t give all of your love to someone else because then what are you left with.
It is like when you are on a plane and they say ‘in case of emergency, oxygen masks will fall from the ceiling. Put your mask on before you help others’. So in life that means that you need to help yourself and make yourself safe before you should start helping others because, if you don’t, then who know what will happen to you. You matter most ok and I never want you to forget that. So yes, others do struggle but you deserve just as much help and support, your thoughts matter and you deserve to live better than this.
Thank you guys for reading this and I hope it helped some of you to remember this because it is so important to know at this point. Please take care of yourself and know that you mean so much to the world. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
Key word here is survive. You wont enjoy it but you will at least make it through the day, I hope. So here it goes, and to all the people in school, good fucking luck, you are gonna need it
I really like this one and it is really easy. So while your teacher is talking about how much they hate online school, all you are gonna do is stare at the wall. Now, make sure it is at a place where nobody would think you are staring at them. Maybe look out the window, and then just zone out. It is quite relaxing if I say so myself. You can kind of hear the teacher but you are just listening to the random thoughts in your head and you just forget that you are sitting on a chair made for someone with no backbone.
So while your teacher makes the joke about ‘it is great to see your faces again, or at least half of them’, just scream. Not outwardly of course, but like in your mind just have a rant with yourself. I find this really therapeutic but just don’t let it get to the point where you want to cry with anger because that would be a bit embarrassing to be honest. It also means you wont actually accidentally say it out loud and it can get quite intense in there. I just think about how much I bloody hate school with all my heart and how none of this even matters and life is a joke. But you can decide what you want to say.
Meaning Of Life
This may get a bit dangerous for some people, but as a way to look interested in the subject they are teaching, it is really useful. So while your teacher asks the class a question, nobody answers and they say ‘are your mics muted’ all you need to do is just think about the fact we are in the middle of nothing that is growing into something constantly and we are made out of particles that have been alive for all time and the fact that matter can’t be created or destroyed except it had to be created at some point because how could it of just appeared from nothing. I do scare myself sometimes but it helps me to not give a shit.
My skills have actually become immaculate, well for modern art anyways because this shit be looking like a 5 year old did it, but who cares. So while your teacher is secretly drinking wine in their coffee cup, all you need is paper, pen and boredom. These 3 things really go well together. You don’t even have to know what you want to draw, just draw fancy scribbles until you see something you could make out of it. Kind of like trying to make sense of the mess that is our life.
This is an interesting one. While your teacher is talking about how much they care about your mental health while they hand out a massive tests, what you want to do is really focus and see if someone can hear your thoughts. This is quite a difficult one though because you need to do it in a secret way because if you say ‘I want to see if anyone can hear my thoughts’ in your head, then they will hear it. So just scream at random moments to see if anyone jumps. So far, nobody, but is there hope, no.
Anyways, this is basically all I can do to keep me awake during school. Kind of just controlling my fall to the deepest pits of hell, I am nearly there though lol. So yeah, if you liked this content please do follow and like. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
So as, per usual, I was having a wee depress sesh. This time was because I realized that I would never get the chance to meet my idol in real life. That may sound dumb but… shut up.
Anyways. After I composed myself and did a peace sign in front of the mirror, I was thinking about what I would say if I actually could meet them. Like, what would I want to make sure they knew. I’m not saying this really made it better lol because after I was sad again because I was like ‘but they will never hear that’. So yeah, let’s carry on
You may be wondering ‘who is your idol’, and I’ll tell you in a really hard riddle. Now you really need to think about this ok. She’s a bad guy. Who do you think it is? If you said Billie Eillish, well done that is right. It was in the past month that something just clicked in my head and I just became obsessed with her and her story. I’m not sure if that was because of the chip in my vaccine or what, but I just watched some of her interviews and she inspired me so much.
If I told you that I have gone through the exact same thing as her, I would be lying. (Also why do be say that, ‘i would be lying’ because I mean duh lol). But her songs are just so universally relatable no matter what. They mean so much and they are so comforting to me as though she is here telling me everything is gonna be ok. And I know if she was to read this she would instantly get a restraining order, but I look up to how she has got to the point she is at despite the way life has treated her.
But back to the point, ‘what would I say to my idol?’. Well, it is simple. I would tell her that her music and her story have saved my life. I would tell her that I am so lucky to be alive at the same time she is because I don’t know what would happen to me without her as proof there are better days. I watched her apple TV documentary and, most of the stuff I had already heard of, but actually seeing her in the moment with all of those things happening around her, it reminded you that she is a real person. I know that might sound a bit rude lol ‘she is a real person’, but what I mean by that is she has struggles, emotions, a back story. And all of that stuff that we feel so isolated for, she has gone through to. If I were to meet her I would give her a big hug and just tell her sorry for all the things she as been through. All the shit that the industry has put her through. The problem with me meeting her is that I don’t think I could ever walk away from that room because this influential teen has actually seen me. She made it this far, yet she gave her time to see me, a nobody. She has so much to give and I don’t know what words could be used to say the things I think. She makes me feel like the things I feel aren’t crazy and that it doesn’t stop you from success. She is so confident and she can be herself which is so admirable.
So over all, I would tell her how much she, and her music means to me and everyone in the world. But it will never happen. So talking about it here kind of lays it all out and it helps me to make it make sense. I hope that it can help you to. Maybe this is someone that has hurt you and there are things you want to get off your chest. What would you say to them? Picture them in your mind and talk to them with all the emotion you need and all the words you want to say. Let them know how they have changed you. For good or for bad.
Thank you all for reading this. It may have sounded absolutely ridiculous but thank you so much for actually being there to hear it I guess. I hope it helped in some way. Please like, comment and follow if you want similar content like this. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
I am going to tell you something that everyone knows but doesn’t realise. This fact is that we all live on this floating rock that we call earth. And I know that you have all probably been told that nothing even matters anyway, but that is not always a great way to look at it. So here is my perspective.
Despite the fact that we live in a rock and missing a homework probably doesn’t matter, I still get worried about that stuff and I think I always will. But what I like to think is that these worries will someday go away and never be remembered again. Like, some day in the future it will be a memory and it most likely will not have impacted my life at all. To be fair, this is easier said than done, and I am still trying to understand this statement, but it is true. You can still get worried about the little things because it is hard to get rid of them, but at least we have the knowledge that this will pass and nobody will even remember that moment in class that your voice broke or when you leaked on your period.
Have you heard the story about that man from a couple hundred years ago who accidentally tripped someone up? No, neither have I. It probably did happen but nobody talks about it because it is so insignificant. To be honest, a majority of the time only we remember the embarrassing things that we did. Saying that the things we do wont be remembered is a really depressing thing to think about, but if we flip it to our advantage then it becomes an opportunity. If someone thinks ‘nobody will even remember the fact that I am in this play, why should I bother with any of this?’, then you need to tell them ‘exactly, eventually nobody will remember it so you might as well give it your all because in the end nobody will talk about it and you never know, maybe you will give everyone a reason to remember it because of your great performance’.
I always find that, for me, I only really remember the good stuff and whenever I see someone embarrass themselves, I forget it. And I think most other people think the same way. Because I mean anytime we do something embarrassing we think ‘I am so weird nobody has ever done anything as embarrassing as this’, but the truth is that we just haven’t heard of it because it is so unimportant. They only broadcast the successes which can be down-heartening for us as we feel like less than others, but we need to know that they might have had a million failures in between those achievements. We always feel isolated when we get embarrassed and that isn’t our fault, we have just been shielded from the embarrassment of others because it really does not matter.
So to conclude, I guess I just want you all to remember that it is ok to still get these thoughts and worries, just always have it in the back of your mind that you are the only person rethinking all of your failures and that in the future it will never even be mentioned.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope this meant something to you guys and helped you in some sort of way. I would also like to share that I have made another website called Affiliateen which is about different ways you can make money online, so you can go check that out if you are interested. Please like, comment and follow if you enjoyed this post. Hope you have a great day, stay safe, and stay yourself PERIODT.
OK so don’t even be judging me for wanting to make a wee bit of money. I mean I just want to get out of school and not literally freeze to death. What I also want to do is help you guys do the same. Now look, you aren’t gonna literally make millions from one of these, at least I don’t think you can but if you keep at it you could probably make a good wee bit. I know that I am gonna keep using them so, yeah. Also I would like to add that I am an affiliate for some of the links in here and I will get a wee bit of a commission, just so it doesn’t look like I’m coming for your money LOL
You guys might have heard of this, but it’s a wee app where you can literally sell any service you can provide. For me, I sell my voice. LOL this ain’t no little mermaid shit, it is just that I will do audio books and stuff like that. But no, it is good and it feels very professional although it is still really easy to get everything filled in. But there are so many services you can sell on there. If you know a different language, computer software, website building, designing, logos, or anything like that then you can already start selling, and that is only a small part of it. There are so many other things that you can sell. I will leave a wee pic for you to click on and you can get onto it
The first question is, what the hell is affiliate marketing? And what I can tell you about that is it is kind of exactly what I just did. It is where you join an affiliate position for a brand and you just promote their product and website. And like I said on the first paragraph, I do get commission if someone were to click on it. I just like to get that across so that you guys can trust me and know that I don’t want to steal your money, I would rather direct you to someplace and get a few benefits off it. It is basically just suggesting things to people but you actually get payed. On most websites all you need to do is scroll down to the bottom and there will be the word ‘affiliate’ and then all you need to do is sign up and post these things where others can find them.
One of the programs I am in is in Amazon and that makes me sound all fancy but anyone can do it. It is really simple and you may have seen some on my other posts where I leave a link, sometimes those things are affiliate links but other times there aren’t. So yeah definitely go check out the Amazon one because it is one of the most well know and trusted websites. Just click here
This is a really great website where all you need to do is record your voice while you review a website. So literally you just say what you think, just anything and they pay you for it. There are ones which can go to $30 to $120 but those ones you have to do on a proper face time, so I just do the ones that are $10 dollars, and that is like £6.50 which is pretty good for only 10-15 mins of work if you ask me. Click here to get to it. You can get it on your phone as well so you can do tests whenever and wherever. Definitely a good one for those on their phones all day anyways.
Look, I know you are all probably crying at the screen saying “I thought you loved us!”. All I have to say is that at the start I was like, lets make some money, but then I was like, ya know what, this is quite fun. Totally not because I already put in money for this and can’t back out. LOL please trust me when I say I was joking about that. I actually learned that I really enjoyed this stuff because I can write about anything on my mind and whenever anyone like my posts I just get so motivated because somebody actually was interested in what I said. We all feel like we are too weird for this world and, maybe I am, but there are others out there who actually do want to hear what you have to say and it really is rewarding. I use WordPress for mine and you can use whatever you want really. You might not actually make any money off it, I know I haven’t, but it inspires me to find other ways of making money so that I can keep doing this instead of some boring desk job, although technically I am at a desk right now, but that’s beside the point.
Ok, you guys definitely think I am some type of English freak. I am not I swear. I haven’t read a book in ages, but then I heard of this book that helped people to be financially stable and I was like, well what have I got to loose. £13 to be exact. But so far it has been worth it and although yuo may be like, how will a book make you money? Well, Karen, this book will teach you the skills to use and make money, so if I didn’t have it then I wouldn’t have that knowledge or ability to make money, so there is your answer. I would consider it an asset for my future, which you would understand if you read the book. But I am gonna be nice and give you a link to that book. Just click this pic and you can get one ok!
I have just started this and it is one where you just submit surveys that you don’t have to record anything, just answer some questions. It is a simple points system and depending on what you do you can get a certain amount of points which can give you money on paypal or for different gift cards, it is quite good I have to say. Again I haven’t used it for too long but it is professional and I am gonna keep using it for sure. Just click on the pic and you can go try it for yourself.
I have actually talked about this before. It is literally the easiest way I have made money. You definitely are gonna think this is a scam, but all you need to do is sign up and wait for the money to come rolling in. It is a source of passive income and I don’t know how to explain it without it making it sound sketchy but it is so great and yes that literally is all you do. Click below and you can get started, you’ll thank me later
I haven’t actually made money off this yet because it takes more time, but what you do is you go to a site like godaddy.com, you buy a domain for around £10 and then you sell it for more. This can be a bit risky but I have heard of some money who make piles of money from it so I am willing to take the risk if I am honest with you. It does take longer but you don’t actually have to do anything which is great. You know what to do by now, click on the pic
Do you ever go on a walk and think to yourself, “I need payed for this”. Well, it’s all sorted for you. Just get walking and your steps with actually be worth it. I suppose it could save the environment. I mean just walk and get money while you go to the store or wherever you need, without using your car, so, your welcome world. Click the pic below and you can start
Ok I think I just found one of the best survey to money apps. This isn’t an ad by the way but with the other apps you may not even get to take the survey or you may have to do hundreds just to get a fiver, but with this one it is made so much more simple and I love it. Just on the picture
Thank you all so much for reading this and I hope it will come into good use for you all. I use these all and trust them all if that is any consolidation ahaha. But yeah, just one more reminder that, as an affiliate, I get a commission for any purchases, so thank you if you bought something LOL but yeah, hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
I know that some people might get a bit… enraged by this but it is true. I just hate it when people tell me to just ‘be positive’. I mean they act as though I am just gonna stand up tall and be like ‘ya know what, you are so right’. Do you seriously think that it would be that simple. Let me just have a wee bit of a slump OK.
Of course there are some exceptions, like when someone is reading out your blood type… wow I really do hate myself for that. Now all of my followers are just gonna be middle aged dads. Well… OK let me just be serious now. The times you can say it are when a small event happens. Like you get one bad grade, or you only have one more coin left for the claw machine…
but that is just because they are literally the most meaningless things in life. I mean you don’t go up to someone who is like clinically depressed and be like ‘it’s OK, be positive’. It doesn’t work like that grandpa, life has changed since the bloody wheel was invented. It just annoys me that people blurt out the most ridiculous things like that, and the thing is, you know that a majority of the time they are actually trying to be nice, but I mean, just don’t say that.
To be honest, I am not 100% sure why this angers me like it does, but it just makes it sound as if you think that what they are going through is literally meaningless. I mean you wouldn’t go up to someone in the army who literally is in the middle of no-mans land and just be like ‘just relax’. Like what the hell do you think is going to happen when you say that? World piece will just suddenly be restored? No, you try to bloody help them. Although, in terms of mental health, the best thing to do is just be there for them and not try to fix everything.
Sometimes teachers say it as well. They will literally stand at the front of the class with a massive pile of homework and be like ‘I know I am only giving you one day to complete this all, but just be positive and you will get through it’. You know what Karen, you just changed the world. I mean I don’t think I can fear sadness ever again. As a matter of fact, let me just do everyone’s homework. Literally words can have no magical affect to make us all better. Even if you have good intentions by saying it, just still don’t do it.
There are some times in life where you can be having the worst day. One of those days where you just suddenly realise that this is how your life is gonna be forever. You look out the school bus window, at the exact same time everyday, at the exact same street where all the workers are walking home. You see that man you see every day, wearing the exact same clothing, walking around at the exact same time, exact same place, doing the exact same thing. And you see that in everyone. You can see they have all just, accepted it. And you really don’t want to become like that but everywhere you look there are lifeless people whose bodies run on a schedule, powered by the money they get to buy the bare necessities. That is what I was feeling one day when I got off the bus to walk home. Nothing had changed. I got their at the exact same time. There was the exact same person walking their dog, the sun was just setting, and this man was mowing his lawn. He looked up and spoke to me. He said ‘hey, these are the best years of your life so just be positive’. I looked back at him and I could tell he felt as though he had just made someones day. I don’t blame him or anything, I mean how could he read a teenagers mind. But I just smiled and walked on. The sadness that made me feel was so overwhelming that my heart was nearly on the floor. I just couldn’t bare that this life would only get worse. I mean it feels so impossible but I guess it’s true. I guess it is time that I just accept this life and work that office job where I work for someone else everyday. Not thinking for myself until I need to figure out what I should take out of my grocery list so that I can afford the shopping this month. My family is so great and we have been so lucky financially, but for me I just feel like I won’t get that. And it was the fact that he just said to ‘be positive’. It sounds so simple, like I should just pick myself up and enjoy every second. But how can I do that when I know it is all gonna be worthless and nothing is gonna come from it.
I suppose that is why I don’t like the phrase. I think it should be banned. Replaced with just your presence. Obviously not from a stranger, but someone you know and trust. They should just look at you with all the compassion they have because that communicates better than any word in the dictionary.
Sometimes downplaying someones emotions can be really damaging to them. Obviously, we know you don’t mean any harm, but when your head is filled with awful things, it morphs any good intentions into bad ones. I know from experience that it is like that for a lot of people. They don’t hate you for what they say, they just feel misunderstood or as though they are literally insane. You don’t need to use your words all the time. Sometimes just being there means the most.
Thank you so much for reading. I really hope this either opened your eyes on how to communicate with others, or reminded you that you aren’t crazy if your mind switches the good into bad. That isn’t your fault. Please like and follow if you enjoyed this and even leave a donation if you like. Anything is appreciated. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
I wrote those two words on a post-it note yesterday. It’s simple, but out of context it probably seems a bit strange. But what does it mean for me?
Let’s bring this back a wee bit. So I am trying affiliate marketing and I am learning how through ‘Legendary Marketer’. I won’t go into too much detail about them but that is just a wee bit of information. I purchased their 15-day challenge and I am on day 5 now. I still have the motivation to do it, despite the fact I had to let down their blueprint offer due to financial issues. I asked my mum for a bit of financial support and of course she was skeptical and was unsure if I should purchase it. I am completely fine with that too because it was a large sum of money despite the discount. My confidence took a little bit of a dip though. She looked up some other peoples opinions and they said that it takes a lot of time and hard work. I knew that though. But I don’t know if I was tired, or what, but I just kind of thought ‘maybe I am overreacting about this opportunity? I should just quit now and pursue a normal career like everyone else’.
So what did I do? I went upstairs and sat for a bit. A bit depressed at the thought that I might just have to work a 9 to 5 job. I literally thought to myself, ‘I will not be able to carry on this life if I need to go to University and then work a boring job with financial stress and all that shit’. After I thought about that for I while I finally said ‘if I don’t want to live life as expected, then I won’t. I am going to keep going and if I fail, then we will go from their’ and I was later thinking about what could help me to sustain this motivation. The answer may be different for everyone else, but, for me, as you probably could tell from the title, I came to the conclusion that I am not just doing this for me. No, because that would be too risky, I would only disappoint myself if I quit. So I have the question ‘for who?’ written in my room to remind me of the main reason I want to become financially successful because I can’t fail for them. I need to be successful for them, my family. This probably looks as though I am seeking attention, but I am just showing you what I find motivates me to keep going so that you guys can be inspired to change.
For teenagers especially, I feel as though we are underestimated because ‘we aren’t smart enough’ or ‘not as well informed’ but yet we are the generation that grew up with technology. Of course I don’t know everything, it is impossible, and yes I could get scammed but I don’t look at the ad that says ‘get 10 iPhone 12s just by putting in your email’. I mean I know a scam when I see one. It can be harder for teenagers to focus on one goal as well because we fell as though, no matter what happens, we have a plan B, a safety net. This can be great and I am glad to have one, but it means that I won’t try as hard to make everything work because, if it doesn’t, I will just move on. I still have school, a social life, a family, a roof over my head. If you do, however, only focus on that one thing and don’t have any Plan B, I am impressed and you are on the right track but we all get scared of being judged. I don’t know how to describe Affiliate Marketing to anyone because I am still quite new but that means that they feel as though I just want to get rich quick. That isn’t it though, I want to learn the skills that will make me financially stable in the future. I feel as though, if I told someone that I am really committed to this and I feel as though this will be what makes me financially free, they won’t believe me or trust me. What I have to remember though is that they didn’t grow up with the access to all this and so of course they won’t trust it. I just have to trust my gut feeling and work harder to prove my point that teenage girls can still accomplish this. To show the world that I am not settling for anything less than my dream. That I will make it.
Thank you so much for reading. Please like, follow and donate some money if you can so I can keep all of my content free for everyone. I really hope this inspires you to look for your reason. Why are you doing what you are doing? What do you want out of it? I hope you have a great day, stay safe, and stay yourself PERIODT.
But I will share some tips of what I do to prolong my survival.
For me, I like to zone out whenever I am on a useless topic. And because I am zoned out for the majority of the day, I like to create a world in my head that is even slightly better than the one I am in now. For example, I go to the deepest darkest pits of hell, that’s my favourite one. Really takes your mind of how horrible your day is. Or you could imagine that you have gone into space and your helmet falls off, the good thing about that is that I am not stuck in my house and my continuous headache actually makes sense. So yeah, 10 out of 10 do recommend
Oh don’t get me wrong. I am not researching the work we are doing ahaha definitely not. Actually, I am researching ways to make money to get out of school. My teacher is literally talking about fibre and water right as I am typing this so… I am also trying affiliate marketing so hopefully blogging and marketing will get me THE HELL OUT OF HERE. Sorry for shouting. But yeah I just have the class as ‘background music’ while I look up actual useful stuff. Multi-tasking?
LOL I am not out here literally just juggling in class, well… not all the time anyways. I just have the juggling balls for some reason and just throw it at my wall and catch it or just throw it up and down. To be fair this one is a good one to do. Definitely does help to be honest. And then you could put juggling on your resume… if you want to be a clown. But anyways it is quite the fun one.
Clean My Room
If you have got to this point during class, that is when you know you have just given up completely. Me? Yeah I have got to that point in pretty much all my classes, so yeah. But somehow my room never actually gets any cleaner. Kind of just an organised mess but I mean what else am I supposed to do? Listen?
LOL I swear I don’t talk like that in real life, but like why is this kind of a bargain. Like I literally have you hooked. I got the promo codes for you. I mean I can’t just fuel your online shopping addiction with at least helping you a bit. I am currently wearing my desert sky boutique jumper and I mean comfort is one of the most important things for online school. So yeah, I won’t snitch on you. And besides, you are just supporting small businesses.
Talk To Yourself
Firstly, don’t judge. Second, I am not crazy. Lastly, It is quite fun. You don’t have to start a bloody conversation, just talk your thoughts aloud and make whatever weird noises or songs you want because I mean who is gonna hear you? Nobody you care about anyways so. Just a warning though, MAKE SURE YOUR MIC IS OFF. Please, spare the embarrassment. It can me fun to do this because you distract yourself, you don’t just hear nothing and you can say the weirdest things that you want to. You may also find that you are quite funny, ya never know.
Anyways, you will still get bored as FUCK in the end but this will slow down the process of literal diagnosed boredom. Hope you all enjoyed this and please like, follow and donate some money so that I never have to go to school EVER again. Thank you. Have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
So I am gonna leave some links for the products which I love to use so you don’t have to keep looking them up yourselves because I mean why tell you about it if I can’t help you out at the same time.
You know what, I am going to guess you guys already have this in your room, but, if you don’t, click here and you can get one now. Anyways, you may be like ‘how the hell are lights gonna make you relax’ and I would be like ‘bro… shut up’. To be honest, I don’t know why. I mean it isn’t the light, it is the colour of the light helps me. I mean it is like school. The building doesn’t make me hate life, the actual school part does. You know what I mean? But yeah, I usually like to turn off my main light and switch on the orange-yellow light which makes my room feel really nice and cosy. For me also, it just calms me because it makes you feel safe and at home. Then there are other colours, of course, like blue which help me to calm down. Actually, I am pretty sure that blue is supposed to make you feel more relaxed. Hmm? Maybe I will have to make everything in my life blue and all will be sorted. Well, at least I can do that with my lights. And you don’t have to be a sad bum like me to have these lights. I mean it just transform your room to whatever vibe you want it in. It is also great for at night when you are so comfy and you can’t be arsed to move, because BOOM, remote control. Yeah, your welcome.
These are an investment and a half. So I got one of these for Christmas and I was a bit skeptical. I was like, is this just a placebo affect or what? And for me I move a lot in my sleep so I was like is this gonna work for me. Let me tell you right now, I slept so well. And then I was talking to someone about it and they were like, therapists literally use these because they help to release certain chemicals or something like that and I was like damn. Truly is a life saver. Also, for a quick wee tip, you should buy a weight which is 1/10th of your body weight or something like that. It was weird though because I knew it was gonna be heavy obviously but like it blows your mind because you are looking at a comfy blanket, yet, it could take your head off it someone threw it at you. But yeah, click here anyways if you wanna get one and I definitely do recommend them for someone who gets really anxious, or if you just don’t sleep well, or if you just want one. I mean you do you.
I don’t want nobody on here to be embarrassed about doing this step. If you grew up being told that you should toughen up, I am sorry, but please try to realise that your feelings are valid and that writing them down is such a great way to lay them all out. You can do this in so many ways as well. I mean you can just have your basic, lined diary, which you can get by clicking here. What is also a great idea that is becoming more popular are bullet journals. I only started this at the beginning of the year and I didn’t really understand how it could help. But what I realised is that it help to have all of your negative thoughts out at the end of the day. You can link up some emotions with sleep or exercise patterns and you can just track or write whatever you want that will make your life easier. It do be fun to look through Pinterest at all the artsy work people do, try to recreate it, and fail horribly. But click here so you can get a bullet journal too. I also posted about how to write your bullet journal so go check that out too if you are stuck because it can be confusing.
I do have to admit, I only do this in desperate situations because I can get bored easily but when I do it really helps because it helps you to escape if you know what I mean. Especially during lock down, it transports you away from the walls you stay in everyday and takes you to wherever you want. It is truly special. I will link some of my favourite books but also a link to a kindle because I have found that they are better for me. You don’t have a clunky book in your hand, it is light, doesn’t take up a lot of room, and you can buy other books on it as well. The first book I recommend is Noughts and Crosses, this is actually a series of books but I will just link the first one for you so you can find out if you like it. I won’t spoil anything, and you can read about it on the description in the link, but it has everything you could want in a book. This one is actually a book that I couldn’t put down, and that is saying something. Another book I recommend is Opposite of Always. Now this one is a feel good book. I mean the plot is really sad but what I mean is that it shows true love. It shows what you want others to do for you. It shows so much emotion and I could read it over and over again. I 10 out of 10 do recommend. The last book I am gonna mention is The Freedom Writers. OK I am not gonna lie to you, I have not read the actual book yet BUT I have watched the movie (which I also highly recommend) which is about the story behind this book and I can’t wait for my mum to finish it so I can read it. This book contains real life stories of a classroom of kids who live really different and difficult lives. They each have an entry about their story and from the movie, I know that their stories will really open your eyes to the world of others which I think we all need so that we can be more knowledgeable about others lives and not just our own. Maybe you might even find someones story you relate to, but either way you are going to gain something from that book. Knowledge or reassurance that you aren’t alone. Right, and last but not least, here is the link for a kindle. I am not gonna lie to you guys. This is expensive, well depends on who you are obviously, but the good thing is that you can get books for cheaper on this instantly because you don’t need more paper, you don’t need it shipped. stuff like that that bring the cost down. You could also say it is better for the environment, but either way, kindle or not, you should try to read more. Escape more.
You may be thinking, ‘how the hell do earphones make you relaxed, this is ridiculous’, and to that I say, ‘sorry I can’t hear you, I have my earphones in’. The great thing about earphones is that they help to immerse you in the song or the show or whatever by blocking out more sounds from the real world. Sometimes if others are really loud or you just can’t take anymore of the world, putting in earphones can help to block that out more. I am not saying it is the cure but for me it helps me to focus on the words in the song or the different sounds in a show. It helps me to concentrate and focus on that moment. I will leave a link for wireless earphones and also non-wireless earphones just in case you prefer one to the other or have different price ranges. I mean this may not work for everyone but it sure is worth a try.
Thank you so much for reading this and I hope this helps you to relax a bit more. I do have other methods too but I will mention them at a later date. But for now, lay back, relax and try to transport yourself into a new world. Please like and follow if you want more content like this. I also have a few codes for money off on different brands of clothes which you should check out. Other than that, I hope you stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody elsesomeone
You know, I am not gonna lie to you. I never full understood what this meant. I mean I got the gist but it wasn’t until last night, when I have my daily random thoughts while trying to sleep, that I actually figured it out.
Of course, it means that you need to love yourself before anyone else because you should be the most important thing in your life, but I was always like, how does that stop you from loving someone else. I mean surely people can not like themselves but love somebody else. Then I realised that it is much more complicated than that, well, from how I perceive it. Damn, I am not sure if English class is rubbing off on me or what but we gonna get real deep into this text.
First of all, what is love, baby don’t hurt don’t hurt me, no more. Sorry I had to do that. But seriously. To love somebody means that you adore everything about them. You want to be around them all the time. You can talk about things so easily. You may not have the exact same likes and dislikes but those differences don’t get between you. This is all that I can tell from movies anyways. I have never loved someone truly before. But my point is, how can you do all that, if you don’t even know what you like. What you want to do. What you expect others to respect about you. How you want to be treated. Who you really are. True love isn’t changing yourself to fit the person they want you to be. And it isn’t until you find out who you are and you realise your worth, that you can find that special someone.
Loving yourself means that you learn to know your worth and you don’t want to change anything for anyone else. Loving yourself means that you don’t need anyone to ‘complete you’. Loving yourself means that you wont take shit from nobody if they are disrespecting you. When you love yourself, you accept yourself. When you love yourself, you know what you are looking for in a relationship. When you love yourself, relationships will be easier because they will know the true you and love you for that. You wont have to change nothing for no one.
Lets say you don’t love yourself and you get into a relationship. They could treat you like crap and you are gonna think you deserve it. You wont see that they can’t treat you like that because you don’t know your worth. Even if they don’t take advantage of you, you might have to be someone else so that you can connect with them and even if you do love them in that situation, that isn’t you. The person you are trying to be love them, but you don’t because that isn’t who you are. I think that the best time to have a relationship is when you don’t need one because it is at that point you area happy with yourself and a relationship is just a bonus. And at that point you will be in a relationship with a person who knows the real you. You wont have to work to keep the relationship going. It just happens. And I am sure that is a beautiful thing.
The key word in this phrase is YOU. And if you don’t know who you are yet, then how the hell you gonna love somebody else. Be you. Love YOU. Not the person you think you are meant to be, but you. It may take a long time, trust me I know, and I am still not at the point of being able to love somebody else. But what I also know is that I will get their eventually. My prize wont be the relationship on other side. My prize will be me, and I can’t wait.

LOL, do you know what is a coincidence. The fact that ‘he who shall not be named’ from Harry Potter and ‘the holiday who shall not be named’ from… this post, both start with the letter ‘v’. Can you guess what it is yet? Damn, seriously, OK well today is the 7th of February, and the holiday is one week from now. Oh my, you still don’t get it. It is valentines day. And just for a bit of background, this is my first valentines alone after 2 or 3 years with being with someone and to be fair I am actually happy about it, so you can probably tell what that relationship was like. Anyways, I kind of just wanted to talk about why it is good to be alone again this year in the perspective of a first time single on Valentines.
Right, so during February you have only just recovered from the financial burden of Christmas, until BOOM, here comes valentines. I suppose it is different depending one what you do, but usually people get gifts for the other person and then you go out for dinner, which is always more expensive. I mean if you are by yourself on valentines, you can save that money, or better yet, spend it on you. You can buy all of the valentines chocolate without anyone suspecting a thing. I mean the plan is full proof. And you won’t have drown in more debt for a while. You can just look out at all the couples and laugh at how their pockets hurt. I mean why waste it on someone else when you can spend it on the most important person in your life, YOU. Who could be arsed to spend £20 on a starter and £50 on a dress or new clothes that you are only going to wear once. I mean this valentines when I went to Tescos I panicked for a second and then was like ‘fuck yeah! That ain’t my problem any more’. Although somehow I am still broke.
LOL I remember I would spend so much time trying to pick out gifts for this person and where we would go, what we would do. I mean it took me so long to pick out what to wear and putting my makeup on. Up until the 14th I would be thinking non stop about it, not in a good way though, I mean like in a worrying way. I always worried about how it would turn out, how I would look, if he liked the gift, what I would say. Mostly bad things. But now I can focus on myself more which is good because you know the saying ‘if you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else’ and I mean I suppose it is true. I think that I am just happy that I don’t have to act different. I know that if you are in a healthy relationship, you wouldn’t have to do that, but for me I did which as so exhausting and I am happy to just be by myself and not have to put so much of my attention to another person.
Nah look, this isn’t about the money side of the gift, this is about actually getting a gift. I mean if you go out with a guy, what the fuck are you supposed to buy for them?! Why are they so bloody hard to buy for?! I mean for a girl they will like anything, a bracelet, flowers, a necklace, anything. But in shops they never having anything for the guys and you can’t really think of anything sentimental. My friend has gotten into a relationship (I know, Lord save her sole) and she was like ‘I’m not sure what to get him? What did you used to buy’. I looked at her like bitch I ain’t gotta clue. I was laughing and that is when I realised that I am so fucking happy not to have that problem anymore. I mean I was close to having to end up buying the person a lip-balm or something because I mean damn, there really is nothing to buy a guy.
OK, everyone needs to get this into their head. Valentines day is about spending time with the ones you love. I mean I know it is recognized for the day for couples, but lets change this. I mean couples should have that same energy everyday anyways, but lets bring friends into this. Making it a time for just celebrating relationships in general. Friendships, relationship with yourself, anything I suppose. It is so easy to bully yourself about being single again but what does that matter. I mean you weren’t put on this earth to fall in love with someone, someone who may break your heart one day. Just go out with the ones you know will stay with you forever, no matter what comes along. I mean you need to focus on what means more to you. A life long friendship or an Instagram photo to make others jealous.
Over all, I just want to get across that being single on valentines day isn’t a bad thing and you definitely should not find someone just to have a date on valentines, because trust me, a bad relationship is not worth it. Save this time for you and when you find the one, it wont be such a struggle. When you find the one it will be so easy to talk to them, to hang out with them, to love them. There is no point of losing your dignity just for a picture that you will most likely delete in the future. Nobody should come before yourself and you need to realize that before you start dating. Nobody is judging you for being single. I know I don’t. This year is gonna be a bit different for me but I am excited to at least be happier on this holiday. Not all relationships are easy so be happy you aren’t in one. Take this time for you and just remember, this is only one day with a name on it. It doesn’t really mean anything except there are hearts everywhere. Get some chocolates, put on a face mask, watch whatever movie you want because you ain’t got nobody to please. You do you boo.

It has been a week since I posted the part 1 so go check that out now and come back to this one after, I mean if you want, I guess it doesn’t really matter. Here is the link anyways – Part one. Anyways, let’s get into it. Last time I talked mostly about the teachers and the other people in the school, this time I am going to talk more about the work and tests.
Right, so when going from primary school to secondary school, you are gonna see a bit of a change. There won’t be any cut ‘n’ sticks, or any colouring in. It’ll be more like essays, tears and bullshit. I remember when I was in first year and I was guiding some parents around for the new year coming in soon and they were like ‘so what would you say the homework is like in first year, is there a lot? Is it hard?’ and I just looked at them like what the fuck am I supposed to say to that :/. This was the quickest I have thought in my lifetime, and I was like ‘it’s alright. I mean of course there is more than in primary school but the teachers are understanding if you have an excuse to hand it in later’. Bitch my acting was on point. That whole line was as fake as the girls in my year. I mean I was impressed by myself. Although don’t stress guys, it is literally the first year and they only put stress on you to see how good you really are. To be honest, a majority of them were drawing posters. Like no joke, the amazon rain forest was quaking with the amount of paper I had to use. So I guess it is a transition period in terms of homework. Personally I would recommend to not get too stressed about homework because as long as it hand it in on the day, they will think you are great. And besides, if you don’t do so well, it won’t go towards anything. Just use this year as a way to find out who you are and how you work best. For me, and this is gonna sound nerdy, I do my homework the day I get them. I have done that since the day I started and it helps me not get too stressed and I definitely recommend but I guess it depends on your lifestyle. As you can probably tell, I was not too social but we move.
I am gonna have to be honest, the first year exams are not as laid back as the 2nd year ones. This is only because in the first year you kinda want to make an impression but in 2nd year you don’t need any of the grades and nobody really cares how you do. And you need to know that the first year stuff may seem really hard now, but trust me, in the future you will know it like the back of your hand. By third year, I didn’t even have to look at the first-year stuff because we did it so much. You will get sick of it, to be honest, but you gotta do what you gotta do. For me, I was stressing for all of the exams and literally was too worried about them. If I could tell my younger self something I would definitely tell them that your social life and mental health and 100 times more important than schoolwork. I mean you can’t be good at everything. A few bad grades don’t mean anything, especially when you are having a fun time. Anyways, on exam week, I do have to tell you, the school feels like a completely different place. I mean I would come into school as though it was my first day again and I was proper sweating as though this determined my life. By the way, it does fuck all for your future. Oh and also, I don’t know why but no matter how much you eat on the day of the exams, your stomach will be rumbling or making weird digestion noises. Yes they are very embarrassing and in third year I would literally be shaking the whole room. Don’t ask me why that happens but just know that it happens to the best of us.
OK, so for the last comment in today’s ‘what to expect’, let’s talk about the actual work in class. Here is just a pre-warning. Your back will become deceased. Maybe not at the start of the year, but at the end you will have back problems so make use of a locker if you can. It may seem inconvenient but use it because all the older years who may not get one are very jealous and, to be respectful, I would use it. You will miss it when it is gone. Chances are you will also get folders for all of your classes, and yes this will make you feel very grown-up, but don’t let it get to your head. Holding them in your arms, even though you have room in your bag, does not make you look cool. When you are older you will get massive ones called lever arch files that actually way a tone and you physically can’t put them in your bag. Trust me, we don’t want to be holding them, and we won’t judge you for not holding a file, I mean, if anything, we envy you. But to the actual work now. The things you are learning now are gonna be retaught for at least the next three years of your life. You can take that as a reassurance that it doesn’t really matter if you don’t understand it now, or you can just take it as a warning for boredom. You will be learning stuff on top of that obvious but they will be talked about a lot. A majority of the work is OK but I think the hardest thing is that you have so many more subjects than just Maths, English and PE. For some, you will find awesome subjects that you love, and for others, you will find subjects that you detest and sleep in. That’s OK because you are just trying to find the ones you are interested in. In my first year of school we had to do Latin, don’t ask me why, but I would nearly cry every time from the sheer boredom. I mean I find a lot of subjects useless already, but learning a dead language was next-level pain. So overall, I just want to get you to know that, this year is going to be scary and hard for a lot of you but please don’t get too scared because when you look back on it you are gonna laugh at all the things you thought or did. Let yourself make those mistakes, or memories as I like to call them, and just remember that it will all get better. And take that from me, a person who had a really really tough time in my first year. If you wanna read more about it you can read it here. This year will pass and it will be different for many, but no matter what you know or don’t know yet, you will eventually catch up with everyone. I remember we would do wee quizzes that everyone did well in, everyone except me, but the first year, I would say, is mostly about getting everyone to the same level. Try not to get too stressed and know that you can comment any struggle you are having, or have had, on this post, or dm me on Instagram @periodtblogs

I am about to expose a lot of people right now because there do be some ignorant Karen’s out there. Also don’t worry if you have said some of these because they aren’t harmful and obviously you wouldn’t have thought about it in that way LOLs
These Are The Best Years Of Your Life
Right I don’t know if you had a great childhood or a really bad adulthood but if it is only going to get worse from here, I don’t want it. The first time someone said this to me was when I had got out of the school bus and was walking home. I had just got a really bad grade in school and my mental health was kind of ~nonexistent~, but then this guy was like you OK and I was yeah I’m fine and he was like ‘well these are the best days of your life so enjoy them’. To conclude, I nearly cried. Like why the hell do I have to have a boring job just to survive. I mean I don’t want to survive, I want to live, you know, and by saying to just enjoy them makes me sad because I can’t as I am in school with boundaries. Like why do I have to grow up to get a meaningless job. Every time someone says that I kind of just get less motivated to do something with my future because it seems so much more impossible. And trust me, I don’t like our lives could get much worse so yeah.
You Are Just Having A Bad Day
Wow, why did I get angry just writing this. You know when your child goes down to you and says how they feel. Do not tell them it is just a bad day because it might not be. Especially if they came and talked to you. You may just be very close, or they are really struggling and don’t know how to cope with it anymore. And even if it is just a bad day, don’t tell them that because they are going to say that everyday and probably downplay a very serious mental illness. They aren’t gonna want to reach out anymore because they know they will just be judged. They probably haven’t accepted their mental health as it is which can be really problematic but by just stating that ‘it’s only a bad day’ makes them seem like it is all in their head. You guys have no clue what we go through. You think you know us but you don’t. If you could see the amount of people who are crying in their rooms without anyone knowing, you would be shocked. People are so good at hiding emotions nowadays so you can’t say it was a bad day because you don’t know how long this has been going on for. Just be their for them and say you will help them through all the tough times. Just try to sympathies will them, no belittle them.
I Am The One Who Feeds You, Keeps A Roof Over Your Head And Pays The Bills
This one needs no explanation. What the hell did you expect when you got pregnant? That money grows on trees? I think you know the answer to that one. We didn’t ask to be put on this earth. Hell, if I was given the choice I would refuse to go onto this earth. So why are you trying to guilt trip us. If we are going to be living on this world you may as well let us live. We are not your little slaves. You can’t ask us to do everything for you because you are on your ass watching sports. Especially when they are so close to the thing they need done yet feel the need to call you down from all the way upstairs when it would be so much easier for them. And then they hit you with ‘I’ve been working all day, all I ask is that you close this door.’ Excuse me? I just got back from 6 hours of nonstop education with little to no break while you were at work looking at Facebook memes most of the time. And you chose that job so you should enjoy it. You also get payed. I appreciate that you work for us to live and I want to thank you for that, but don’t think that we have been lazing around all day. Chances are we have homework too and don’t have time to be dealing with this childishness. Your parents payed for your bills and now you have to pay for yours and that is not our fault at all. Don’t make us guilty for what you did.
You Are So Lazy
Oh my, this is always said when you have sat down for one second after doing so much. I mean you always seem to catch us on our phones. We could have just cleaned the whole house or done all the homework for the entire year and you wouldn’t recognize that. Funny enough we don’t all do nothing the whole day. It can also be quite hurtful too because we don’t feel seen. I mean no matter what day it is, we will have done something. Whether that is being at school, or if it is the weekend, we are exhausted from school. The two day weekend is not enough but just let us relax while we can. I mean you guys are always looking forward to your weekends. And it makes us feel guilty and angry too because we feel like less of a person, even though we do the normal amount of things. You just catch us at the wrong time. Everyone needs a break and if we need something done we will get it done eventually.
You Should Be More Like…
Nah, here comes the preparing. To be fair, I don’t remember my parents ever saying this to me but I know that some do and that needs addressed. What is the point of comparing your children to someone you barely know. I mean you could say ‘you should be more like George, he always gets good grades’. OK then, let me just buy some weed and rob a store and I will be just like him. Or maybe they will say ‘you should be more like Julie, she always respects her parents’. OK, well just let me become traumatized and depressed and I will be just like her. Just because they do one thing, doesn’t mean they are a perfect person. Everyone has a story and you are hurting your child too. You should make them be proud for who they are and not feel like a burden.
Well When I Was Younger…
Lets establish something guys, telling stories to your kids is all good as long as it is in the right context. Like if I am complaining about going to school, don’t have the audacity to say ‘well when I was younger I had to travel through the swirly twirly gumdrops’. Like bitch stop, that was from ‘Elf’ the movie. You all just be exaggerating things. I just said I don’t like taking the bus. I mean just because we don’t have the same problems doesn’t mean that ours are any less. If you keeping saying that then we aren’t gonna be coming to you to ask stuff. Although, saying this, I will be saying about how I lived through a pandemic to my kids.
You Are Too Obsessed With Technology
Excuse me but who was the one who bought me this? Who were the ones that created technology because I don’t think it was us. I mean this is how we grew up. You can blame us for not knowing what to do with our time. And besides, this is our future so why try to stop us using it. Also, how much better are your lives with technology. I mean you love the alexa, the TV, your phone, Facebook, all of it. To be honest, you do be using it as much me. So yeah. This is just how we grew up and it is really helpful actually. I can use it for music, for learning a language, communicating with friends, writing this blog, anything. It is so amazing that we have the world at our fingertips. It should be celebrated. And maybe if you stop telling us to get off it, we will because nobody likes to do what they are told ya know. Maybe asking you children what they are doing next time. Maybe it is something beneficial. Technology is also a great way to escape from the real world which can be far worse than technology. Just let us rest if we want to.
You Should Go On A Diet/Exercise More
You know where this about to go. I think your teenage years are the most vulnerable years of your life. We judge ourselves about every little thing we do or how we look. We grew up looking at fake people yet aspiring to be them. But when I hear people say to others they need to exercise more, it really triggers me. I mean of course I am not against exercise but you should let people do it in their own way and in their own time because we don’t want anyone to do it in excess. As well as diets. Teens are in the last vital years of growth and development. Unless they have an allergy, they should not go on a diet. It is only teaching them that there are good and bad foods which is not a good way to view this
Wait Until You Go Into The Real World
Bitch I have been living in the real world. If you see the world we live in, trust me, we would be in the real world. To be fair I can’t say much because I am in school but like I am not unaware of the struggles in life. I am not ignorant to the injustice and war in the world. It is kind of scary as well when you say that because I feel like what I am experiencing isn’t the bad thing and it just makes me think, what is the bad part. Every day on tiktok we see the mental health issues, the abuse, the fear in peoples eyes. So you can’t tell us that we don’t know what the real world is because we may not see the same point of view but I sure know that my side is bloody scary and I am already knee deep in it. You can’t say we are immature because we don’t know how to pay taxes, we don’t have a job or we don’t do the dishes because that is belittling what we go through and we should not be ignored. You don’t know us or the world we live in. I know I am not part of the working world yet but I know damn well the terrifying world. We aren’t immature, we are just knowledgeable of different things.
Thank you all for reading this. I mean I hope nobody gets offended by this. Of course I emphasized my emotions but I hope it helped you to understand me and maybe you can try to empathize with teens more.

Why does this make me sound like a viral blogger. Part 1 lol. There are many things that you learn when you go into high school. Some expected things and some… unexpected things. And now you are gonna learn about some of them in the form of a story. Although I wont tell you everything because there are some things you need to learn for yourself.
The Hard Truth
So when you I went into high school, I think it would be accurate to say that I became very self-conscious. I mean, at some points I felt completely ignored, and at others I felt like I couldn’t get the eyes of me (p.s. I know they weren’t looking at me because of my looks, trust me). Everyone looked like an absolute giant and it was weird because you came from being the ‘old, mature’ ones in primary school to being the ‘weird, tiny’ ones in high school. My sister had been in 3rd year by this point, so therefore she was in the last of her annoying years. (yes there are the annoying years 1,2 and 3). But I would be like why are you always so mean to me in school. Like I would literally walk to my class alone or breathe near her and she would shove me and laugh at me. Now, don’t expect this from everyone, don’t worry, it was only that she is my sister so don’t worried about being pushed… on purpose anyways. Me and my friends always would play out in the ‘playground’ as though it was still primary school. I mean we never ran, we knew that much, but we had different phases of just being loud and obnoxious. At one point we also played with bouncy balls, yes I know, don’t judge me. But that was what everyone, in my year, would be loving. And there is a 1st year garden that is literally the worst thing. We thought we were all so special because we had our own private area. No. Just no. It was technically like a zoo exhibit. Everyone looking in at you. And no, they are not jealous. I am now in 5th year, nearly in lower 6th, and I know now that everyone in any of the years above will not like you. Now I am sorry to say that and it is nothing personal, it is just, stereotypically, 1st years are bloody annoying. Like, it is just something about them. No matter what they do, breathe, walk, look at you, you just find it aggravating. But the good thing about that is that you can use it to your advantage. No matter what you do, they will find you annoying, so, just use this year to do what you want and learn what is ‘acceptable’ in your school. It is different for every school but there are certain things you will get bullied about. But don’t worry that people will remember what stuff you did because they wont remember. They all have better things to think about, well, unless what you did is really embarrassing, but eventually nobody will really care. As long as you start to mature and know your place in the school, the others wont bother you and will start to judge the new ones. And trust me, you will look back on yourself and be like, I cannot believe I did that. How was I not beat up? But then you laugh and move on. So does everyone else. I can’t really remember a single embarrassing thing anyone else has done even though everyone has done something. So use this year to your advantage I suppose and try not to take anyone too seriously. They don’t know you so it isn’t personal.
Have I Mentioned The Teachers?
Damn, this one is tough. You know what, I could probably just cut and past the last paragraph. I am sorry but… the teachers hate 1st years too. But it is so funny because some hide it better than others. One of my math teachers would shout at us so much. No matter what we did, she would hate it. But then one day this 5th year came into our class and was having a conversation and asking what she would like for lunch as though they were best mates. I swear to god that woman changed in a flash. I watched him leave in awe. How the hell did he like her? How did he not get shouted at? And this was one of the teachers who puts their had on their desks, looks up slowly while taking their glasses of and screams. Yup. I was so shocked. But now, I don’t have her as my teacher, but some of my friends do and they literally say she is so nice. Like it is so weird. It is as though 1st years give off a bad smell, which you don’t, that just makes everyone mad. It is funny. My geography teacher is the nicest man on the earth and he gets on so well with all of the older students. But you should see him when he talks about the 1st years he just had. Like he just looks so frustrated and for no reason. And then for the teachers who seem like they like you. Maybe some of them do. I am sure there are teachers out their who like 1st years. But look, when you get older and become friendlier with the teachers, they tell you stuff. They just show another side of themselves that you never saw a few years ago. I remember my class was talking to a teacher once and they were saying how they can’t handle the 1st years and we were like ‘awk, well you loved us didn’t you?’ and she just made a face and moved on. Yeah, it really hits you how annoying you used to be. But I guess it is probably because you are still wired to the primary school way of living, and trust me, they didn’t teach primary school for a reason. It may take some longer to get wired to the high school life, but you’ll get their eventually and you wont be so scared of some of the teachers. Did you know they actually are humans too and actually are funny and kind :0 ? Wow, who would have thought.
So that is all I am going to warn you about today, but make sure to like and follow so you don’t miss the next parts coming out soon. Trust me, you will need to hear this.

I know this is gonna sound really over dramatic for everyone and all adults are gonna be like ‘well your just saying that because you are too lazy to revise’. Well guess what Karen, it isn’t just for that reason. Let me educate you with 5 Ws
These tests are being given to young people who are supposed to be ‘our future’, yet we bash them so hard that they have no confidence in themselves to do great things. I am not sure if anyone else has heard of this statistic, but the average teen has the same level of anxiety as a psych ward patient in the 1960’s. I don’t know about you but that doesn’t sound right to me. As a teen, I don’t see the point of making us prepare for the future if you make us all feel as though we wont have one if we don’t know how to work out the area of a triangle. Not only have we been affected by work but also the media which means we have so much more to worry about. I mean how much of an impact can we make if we are all depressed. Because that is how tests make us feel. Some of us don’t seem very phased my a bad grade and, although I can’t speak for all of you, we do care about it and it does affect us. Just sometimes we are scared to be smart and I know how that sounds but I think it is more of a peer pressure thing. And for the people who always do well in exams, the person who gets upset if they don’t get 90% or above. They too are struggling. They feel so stressed by revising all the time and never feeling good enough. Why do we waste our lives and our minds in order to get a big A on a piece of paper. How can we rule our whole life of of our school life. A teen, not fully understanding what they are doing in life, yet have so much pressure to make the right decisions. And for what, to get into uni, to get into debt, to get a 9 to 5 job and work for someone else until we retire and die. Is that what you call success? They say that when you are born you are only scared of 2 things, the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. So at what point did the fear of failure, the fear of embarrassment, the fear of the future, come into play? Maybe it was from home life? But people with a good family life still have these fears, right? So what do we all share in common? School. Tests. Essays. Have all adults been brainwashed since they left school because even though we are ‘the future’, you guys are the present and you need to fix this now.
School is defined as ‘an institution for educating children’. That sounds all nice and appropriate. An exam is defined as ‘an official test that shows your knowledge or ability in a particular subject’. Lovely, right. Well from the looks of it yes, but I think they left something out at the end of the school definition, ‘an institution for education children in one way despite the range of learning abilities‘, and in the exam definition, ‘an official test that shows your knowledge or ability in a particular subject that will depend on their future even though it doesn’t suit everyone’s strengths and abilities and causes mental illnesses‘. Yeah that definitely sounds more accurate to me. If you look at how cars or phones have evolved, you can see such a difference. But when you look at school, the only thing different are the pupils.
The point I am trying to make here is that school were made to teach us how to work in factories. How to live in the old world. But now the world has modernized. There are so many other job opportunities other than being a house wife or a coal miner. Why is is that. We have become so much more knowledgeable about the world and how people work, yet you can’t put into play the facts that you discovered about the way everyone learns differently. The thing that is most annoying is that you put so much money towards pointless things and then give scraps to the schools. It doesn’t make any sense at all. Schools need to catch up with the rest of the world
To be honest I don’t really have anything to complain about, well for me anyways. I mean I get to see my friends. I guess all I would have to say is that the schools aren’t well funded enough to get great heating and furnishing. It usually is freezing although that isn’t the same for all of us.
I know that school times are different in many places. In the UK it starts at 9.20 am and ends at 3.45 pm. I think that in the US they go to school at like 7 am, although I am not that sure, and I have no clue what time you get back home at. Did you know that teenagers have evolved to have different body clocks. We are wired to go to bed later and wake up later because back in the days we were not old enough to hunt but not young enough to just lie around all day so they were made to stay up late to make sure nothing was about to eat them when they were asleep. Now, I am not saying that we should move school to really late and then get out really late because that is not any better. What I think is that school in general shouldn’t be so long. 6 hours everyday just to go home, do more homework, go to bed and repeat. It is almost impossible to do well in school and have a good social life. We are either exhausted from school or we have been bombarded with homework. It always hits harder during winter as well. We go to school just as the sun is going up and then we get home when it is nearly dark. We send more of our time under florescent light rather than the sun. We spend most of the time staring out the window rather than being outside. We hardly get any fresh air because school takes up so much of our life. My spine is never happy with me because I sit on uncomfortable chairs 24/7 with a heavy schoolbag that can’t even fit all my books. How am I supposed to learn anything about the ‘real world’ if I am not even allowed into it. We go to school for the majority of months each year and although we do have breaks, 5 days a week is so exhausting. The fact that dreading Mondays is normal is not OK because we should all be excited for everyday. We should spend our short life on this earth doing what we want everyday. And the fact it happens in the younger years of our lives is so sad. From day one of school you are getting stressed for work, for grades, for classes. No 10 year old should feel that way, they should be running around outside writing stories, songs, positions.
So an over all reason for why we should change the way school works and how exams play a role in our lives is because they are just so ridiculous. I really can’t put into the words the fear I have for the future generations because if it keeps going the way it is, they are all going to be mentally ill by the age of 8 or younger. How can we let this happen. These were things that we made ourselves so we didn’t always need them. Why can’t we just encourage kids to go to schools. Tell them what classes they can go to and they can make their own decision without the pressure of ‘chose wisely because this is your future’. Of course there will have to be some sort of structure but we need to adapt it to the modern world. Not everyone sits at a desk all day. Not everyone should be expected to learn hundreds of new things every day. I mean it doesn’t make sense. Why should everything ride of of an exam we did 10 years ago. We could of had a bad day and not done well in the subject that we love. We all get so scared that we wont be able to do something we are passionate about because we can’t do tests very well. You expect so much from us yet you wouldn’t be able to do it yourself. Why do we stuff our faces with utter wastes of time to just forget it all in the future. I am going to ask you some questions that I am doing in school now and, for any adults, I would like you to answer them and see if you remember anything about it. Obviously, if you are specialized in one of these areas you will know the answer but anyways. What is a surd? Label the structure of a leaf. Tell me why the poem ‘Belfast confetti’ has a full stop. What types of clouds are there, how high up are they and what do they produce or show about the weather? And finally, name all of the causes of the great depression? Well? Could you do it? Not even a bit? If you could? Would you be able to do it under pressure and in around 10-15 minutes? If you can’t, don’t worry. You aren’t dumb. Obviously you just don’t need to use these in your daily life. But I just want to show you how ridiculous some of the things we learn are. And just like us, you may have felt a bit pressured and made to feel stupid. Yes, that is how most of us feel, but on a larger scale and everyday. And the thing is that now you can go off and live your life. Nobody is going to go to you and say you are so stupid, because you don’t need to know that. They would say ‘what are you worrying about? You don’t need to know this’. Yeah, that is exactly what I am trying to get across. Why waste my time on unimportant facts instead of figuring out how to pay taxes, do an interview, buy a house? It just sounds so ridiculous and then we get told that ‘these are the best years of your life’. :0 Excuse me, I hope the fuck it’s not. If my life only gets worse from here then I haven’t got any reason to live. And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is the mindset of a teen. What do you think?
Just remember guys, hang in there because it is gonna be a bumpy ride but we got this PERIODT.

Hopefully most people understand this but if you don’t, I am referring to, and may they rest in piece, vine. But that is completely off topic. However, I am referring to this queen as it is completely correct. As a teen girl who never gets listened to, anger can rise very quickly, but, as she says, sometimes all you gotta do is walk away. Wow, how impactful. Anyways, back on track. People can get on your nerves and to be polite you can’t do nothin’ about it. So I got a few tips and hopefully this will help others who feel unheard or who have a lot to say.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid
Yup, a diary. Or if you want to seem like a macho man, a journal. I don’t see why it can’t just be called a diary but I mean you do you boo. So yeah you could set it out all properly and at the end of each day just turn all your thoughts and emotions into words, or you could bring a small notebook around with you and just write down whatever you need to at any point of the day. This could help you to organize your thoughts or just to let out the anger.
Control, Alt, Delete
I have gotta give a quick shout out to the mum who told me this idea and bitch I could make a trilogy out of the things I delete. So what you do is, if it is an email or online thing you are responding to, type out the thing you actually want to say to them. Go all out, all the words, and the shit you need said. Read it as many times as you need, scream it out. Then delete it. And I know that it sounds quite childish when I say this but then you kind of feel smug and you are like, you don’t even know a thing bitch. And then write a professional, kind response which will sound nice to them but you know that it is sarcastic as fuck
Save It For Later
So this is simple. Just let the person say what they need and you just stay respectful but when you go home or see someone next just have a full on slabber about what happened. Say this on snap chat, face time, say it to your dog, your cat, your teddy bear. Anyone or anything just say ‘I am going to talk for five minutes and I need you to be quiet and listen while I say this’. And just get it all off your chest. You will feel so much better and you can just say what you want and that person will never know.
So this one is an OG but I thought I would add it in for anyone who is unfamiliar. All you gotta do is get a pillow and scream into it. Of course let yourself breathe every so often. It is so good because you can let it all out and the pillow muffles the noise so your family or neighbors wont think you have just been murdered
Ha OK so you may be able to understand some of my posts now. Not all of them are for this reason as most are just to help people feel included in life. But trust me it helps. It’s also good because then you will find other people who will hype you up and agree with you. You can get a whole platform with your thoughts and use them for something useful and not for ignorant people who don’t want to know what anyone else thinks.
Cha Cha Real Smooth
This one is mandatory and will save you in the long run. It is going to be hard to do but it is essential. To be honest if it gets to the point where the person is being disrespectful or you can say your point calmly then by all means say what you need. But if you aren’t given that option or you need to be formal, just leave. Walk away from the situation because if you need help from them someday then they will help you unlike if you were to shout at them because they are annoying. But you need to wait it out and do some of the other tips so that your future isn’t affected because you never know when you may need that persons help with anything. Don’t let them get to you, it isn’t worth it. They don’t deserve to know what you think and you can use your beliefs for something great.
Thank you so much for reading this and I hope this helps you in the future. Sometimes when you hold things in it makes everything so much worse so please do give this a try. I hope you follow to read more helpful and relatable posts but in the mean time please enjoy my other posts.
Hello, I am the write of the blog ‘periodt’ and I am really thankful for this platform because I can talk about things that I struggle with and that a lot of people can relate to. But today I didn’t want to talk about more of what I go through, although there will be more in the future. Today I wanted to do an appreciation post for everyone. My followers, new arrivals, everyone. So enjoy.
I just want to say that if you are here right now, I am proud of you. I know that everyone reading this has gone through at least one hard time in their life. You may be going through it right now. But no matter how big or small that event was, you are here and you have done so well to still be here today. You can make it. I am not going to say it is all up hill from here because I really don’t know, but hey, you are so strong and so appreciated. If you have made it this far you can make it the rest of the way. And I know you may feel like giving up, you may feel like you have no energy left to keep going but please, if not for yourself, do it for me. I need you here, we all need you here and if you leave then the whole world is going to be missing a you. You may not see it now but in the future you are going to impact the world in some way. Please just hold on for a little longer. One day you are going to realize you aren’t alone and your story will help so many other people who may be going through something similar.
I also wanted to speak directly to people who identify as a man at any point in their life. Your feelings are valid. You having emotions is OK. You showing emotions is OK. You wanting to wear something more ‘feminine’ is OK. You being vulnerable is OK. Everything you do is OK. I am not a man but I know that you can feel as though you can’t cry, or be yourself, or do something you want to do but can’t because you are a man. If you identify as a man and you do something that is stereo-typically ‘feminine’ you are no less of a man. There are so many men who take their own lives because of what society has told them and I am so sorry about that. So many men are sexualized and abused and we just don’t hear about that because society says that men would want that anyways or they can’t be abused. That is so incorrect. You may have been taught that ‘men don’t cry’ or so many other things and I am so sorry about that. The things that you go through are not any less valid because you are a man. I can’t put into words all of the things that I want to say but just be you. Do whatever it is you want to do and be confident doing it because you are who you are and if anyone doesn’t like that then they don’t deserve to have you in their lives. Speak up about how you feel, don’t be afraid to report abuse, and take up as much space as you want because this is your life and we are just living in it.
So now I am going to talk generally about everyone else. Also I would like to add that if I have upset anyone in terms of gender, I am so sorry and please comment down below what you would like me to say or not say in the future because I want to make everyone feel included. Don’t be scared to say I did something wrong because I really want to learn about all of this and I am sorry for my ignorance. But anyways, lets move on. I want everyone to know that the world really is a cruel place but we need to stick together. As a generation we have gone through so much that nobody else can understand. There are so many ignorant people out there who still believe in the old views. They may still think there are only 2 genders and that being gay is wrong. I can’t speak about this personally because I am a straight girl who has caring parents but there are so many stories and videos of all the hardships you have to face and I am so sorry. You have no reason to apologize for being who you are because you didn’t have a choice. This is who you are and everyone needs to respect that. It isn’t like this is a whole new thing either. People didn’t evolve into being gay or something. Homosexuals and transgender people etc. have been around for ages it is just that bad people out there have shamed them into someone they aren’t and this generation are just the ones to start retaliating against this. You are being yourself for you, your ancestors and for the future. By standing up to idiots who think they know what is right or wrong, you are making a step into better future and I thank you for that. I am sure it is really scary what are doing because there are so many idiots but please don’t give up because you are doing great things. Never apologize for who you are. You are absolutely perfect and they are just jealous PERIODT.
Mental health wise also, no matter who you are out there, your thoughts are valid. They may not be good thoughts but it is OK to feel how you feel. You may not be fortunate enough to get free help but there are people out there you can talk to. And nobody here can say they don’t because I am here. Yes, please talk to me. I am not a professional but I am here to show you that you aren’t alone until you can get some professional help. If you are going through abuse, crime, anything, please know that you are OK and that I am here for you. You aren’t alone, this isn’t your fault, don’t feel guilty for anything you feel and I am proud of you.
Thank you all for reading this and I am looking forward to answering any comments or emails you guys send me. I appreciate you all and stay strong because the world needs a you PERIODT.
Help a broke bitch out
I really want to keep all of my content free for anyone but click down below to donate some money to support my blog
Sometimes we need a break. From friends. From our phone. From our lives. For anything. And that is ok. So never feel guilty about cancelling a day out or not being present in the situation. It is like any battery. If you use it all the time it will eventually need to be recharged. People recharge in different ways so take the time you need to gather yourself and then do what you need to do.
Right so that title literally gave me a headache to make; mental note, there are no synonyms for break that start with T. Anyways, I thought I would write this post because so much crap happens everyday and we all need a break. But what should you do? Look no further bitches cause I got the answer right here.
- Face Mask, But Make It Relaxing
The fact we all think of medical face masks when we see that word instead of the skin care ones. Also, if you are a man and think this is going to affect your masculinity, wise up and put on the god damn mask. Who the hell said men can’t look after themselves. Put the face mask on and be confident. Anyways, that was intense but yeah literally get a face mask if you have one or look up how to make one. I will leave a few links to good ones that don’t require a literal lab to make
Right, that link has multiple different masks you can make. Some with a few weird ingredients but I mean you can make whatever you like. So once you have a mask on, put on you favorite show, or light some candles and put on some relaxing music. Just do what makes you happy and then in 20 to 30 minutes wash your face and just relax for a wee bit more until you are ready to start whatever you need to do. Extra bonus for maximum relaxation – put on your PAJAMAS. You may be in them already and to that I say, as you should, but if you don’t, get them on right now. Enjoy yourself
2. A guided meditation to look boojy as hell
Look, who needs to pay £100 just for some to whisper ‘shravnaga’ in your ear. I mean yoga classes can be creepy. Instead just search up on google some meditations. The good thing is that you can how long you want it to be. And just if you wanted to know, my therapist recommended it so, your welcome, you just therapy for free. Although I live in the UK do I already got that. Cha anyways… but yeah this would be a great way to distract yourself for a while and relax. Escape from the burning hell, which is the earth, and create a magical land in your mind. Fall asleep if you want, I don’t care.
3. Read A Book
Right so don’t skip this one because you are too ‘cool’ to read. I mean of course of you can’t read very well then you don’t need to. You could watch your favorite show instead. But if you can read, give it a try. Especially during times like these it is so nice to escape from it almost. You can read a book and go to a completely other world. So give it a try. Read a book you have never read, or one that you love, get a cuppa tea or coffee and snuggle up in your bed. Just relax and enjoy the escape from reality.
4. Sloooooooooow waaaaaaaalk
This may be quite frustrating for some at the beginning because you normally walk fast but try it. Go for a slow 15 or 30 minute walk. Life is moving so quickly and the moment. Every second something new comes up. So go for a slow walk to give yourself time to come back to the moment. Listen to music or listen to the things around you. Look around and appreciate all that you see. It is good to get out of your house, if you don’t have ‘rona of course, and escape from the four walls you see everyday. Walking slowly is actually quite relaxing as well, so I mean try it out even for just 10 minutes and then see what happens next. Take it one minute at a time.
5. Bored game … I mean board game
Right so I know board games aren’t really for everyone. My twin in literally obsessed and I couldn’t give a shit. I hate monopoly with a passion, but that’s besides the point. If you could find someone to play with, maybe your family or a friend, or you dog I guess but it may take I while, just dig deep into a closet and try to find a game or a puzzle that you could do. Just a wee bit fun and you can take your mind off the pile of work you have 🙂
6. Bake Bitch
Right OK look, I am talking about MAKING stuff like cupcakes. Not doing your makeup or drugs. Don’t get baked, bake something else. OK. Good. Now we have that all cleared up, you could make some cookies or cupcakes or you could go all out and make a cake and then try to decorate it like really fancy or cool looking I suppose. But my recommendation is to make cookies, cause they don’t take too long, then get all cozy in a blanket, maybe get the fire on, a cuppa tea or milk, and watch a movie with the lights dimmed a wee bit. Wow that sounds so beautiful I could cry :,)
OK, shut up. I know this is basically like the other one but hear me out, This would be so much fun. You could drive to the store get the ingredients you need, go all out or try to make something… unique with some of the cheaper items or stuff you already have at home. Let your culinary skills shine guys. Go off a complicated recipe or make your own. It may turn out horrible but hey, there is a McDonald down the road anyways. You could make a really fancy dinner for yourself. Get all dressed up or stay in your pj’s, whatever you want, but just have a really special meal for yourself because you matter most and you need to learn to love yourself. I mean you never know, cooking could be your new passion and boom, your welcome, you are famous.
8. I do my little dancy dance
You already know where I am going with this one. Learn a tiktok dance. I mean hey, obviously if you have got this fair you ain’t got much to lose. Give it a try, I mean you don’t have to post it anywhere. You could make your own if you like and then become TIKTOK FAMOUS :0 lets make a deal though. If you become tiktok famous and start a trend you have to at least give me a shout out. That sounds fair enough right. Some of the dances are pretty cool though and that could be your next party trick. Well, for when we are allowed one again
You just gotta tap into your primary school self ya know. Just become a little childish. I am not talking about going outside the lines or colouring a giraffe purple but just do some colouring. You can print some out from google, get a colouring book at the shops or draw something yourself and colour that in. It is supposed to be really relaxing actually so might as well give it a try. The good thing is you could watch something in the background or listen to music.
10. Read more of my blogs
Oooooooooh, sorry for the cheeky wee plug but I mean I just had to. Look, in my blog I usually post relatable things about being a teen just to show that you aren’t alone and that nobody really has a clue of what to do. I have a few wee random, fun posts like good Netflix shows but others are stories about what I have gone through and just other stuff other people wouldn’t understand, especially during a time like this. So please do look at my other posts and I’ll see you there. Jeez, that sounded way creepy than I intended.
Anyways, thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope this has helped to cure your boredom and rest your mind for a bit. Just remember that you gotta put yourself before anyone else because they don’t deserve you PERIODT.
