Now, I ain’t tryna rub this in anyone’s face or nothing but like, I have a small group of really close friends and despite the fact it took me a while to get over myself and make friends, it was totally worth it because we are so close. We have never had fights like everyone else seems to have in school, and we are unproblematic. There is 5 of us, including me, so I suppose you can say we are a smaller group, but I don’t think I could imagine there being anymore. There have been people who have tried to go into our group which leads to awkward situations but it has always just stayed the same for us. Pretty much we just live our life like the people who walk away from an explosion without looking back to see it. We are those bitches and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. So that does sound like a bit of a flex, but I added that because there is one thing that happens that I absolutely love and that I know other people go through with best friends. So lets talk about it.
So, this thing is when you are with your friends, it is usually getting dark and you are not surrounded by other people, so you’d be in a tent or like outside or in your bedroom in an empty house, and then the conversation changes so quickly. Not as in “I love dogs, except when mine bit of my Nan’s arm”. But like when you are talking about something hilarious and then the next minute you find yourself talking about how we just live on a floating rock in empty space and we don’t even know what is out there. And I have no fucking clue how it gets there but like it isn’t awkward at all. We are all just like calm and talking back and forth and then you say something like “I just can’t even comprehend blah blah blah” and then someone else is like “that’s the same with me” and then you realise you aren’t crazy. Then all of a sudden you have just spilled all of the tea and fully exposed yourself but like you don’t even care. The thing that is extra funny about it is the fact that it is pretty much never mentioned again until the next time that situation happens and even then you usually switch up the topic. Maybe one week it was an existential crisis and the next it would be sharing traumas and then maybe next week we’ll mix it up with a talk about how scary the future is. It kind of is just pot luck at that point.
Do you guys get that with your friends though? I always find it so fun because it is so spontanious and you find that other people understand and it shocks you and nobody is proper going to make a massive deal out of it and treat you differently. It doesn’t really happen with everyone that I am friends with, which is literally not that many lol, but with the closest friends this would be a regular moment. It happened yesterday when me and my friends were like just going to Tesco and then a field and it just hits out of nowhere. And then you usually just catapult back into the most random shit. It really is a mountain of emotions. Like we go from fuck all, to everything, to even less than before.
This kind of a random post, a bit out of the blue you know, but like I have changed into a working woman because I have a job and that has made me exhausted and with little time to spare, but don’t fret guys because I will be trying my best to post I just don’t have a mind full of thoughts at the moment. It’s a good job though but I still literally freak out when I have another shift. We move though. So yeah, I’m keeping this short but I also want to add that if you are reading this and are like “oh shit I don’t have this with my friends” just know that it took me a while to find the right people and get comfortable enough to talk with them like that. I mean if you read one of my past posts abut my first year of high school you would know I never thought I would get to this point. So just be yourself and wait because you will find those friends someday and you can’t rush that shit, but it will be so worth it, trust me on that. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
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 … Continue reading The Method Guaranteed To Make a Lifelong Friend
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?
You know, this title may seem harsh but like if you haven’t watched these I really do have to question your mental well-being and ask how long you have been living under a rock. Like, these shows are so elite that I had that empty feeling when it finished. You know when you get so attached to the characters that you feel like friends but then it ends and you have to face reality again. Well, that is how I felt with these shows. I also have to ask if anyone else feels literally comforted by some shows because of the people in it and your life could be shit but they are a constant in all the change and when the show ends you feel scared and sad they have left you? Just me? Ok.
Dead To Me
I am pretty sure this one is a bit newer, as in released last year, but I only started watching it a month or two ago when my friend made me and then I forced my sister to watch it because it is literally the perfect mix of intense and fucking hilarious. The humor is 100% me and I die for it. It’s good as well because they don’t make stupid mistakes or unbelievable plots, like all of it makes sense and is well done and even though they have killed people, you feel bad for them. That’s kind of like another show I am gonna talk to you about in a second. What I also love about it is the length of it. Now you do get through it quickly which means it ends quickly so that’s sad, but like each episode is 30 minutes max which is perfect for me because I can’t be coping with any more no matter the show. For me, I couldn’t watch a 40 minute show, but I could watch two 20 minute shows perfectly fine you know. It just makes it feel like you are getting through it faster and every time a new one starts you feel refreshed. But no, if you want to watch a show that is
– sarcastic funny
– not long episodes
– murder mystery
then you better fucking watch this. It literally shocked me because I thought it was gonna be boring as fuck but it’s actually funny as fuck! How the turns table.
I have to flex on you all real quick. I watched this in Spanish without subtitles because, you know, I’m all bilingual and shit. I am actually just learning Spanish but I understood most of it or at least enough to enjoy the show. At the beginning, I have to admit I was kinda sleeping on money heist cause I found it kinda boring and also wasn’t fully getting all the dialogue, but when I improved and paid more attention, I was loving it. I also have to address the fact they are taking their fucking time to release the new season. Like there really is no need because I’m getting sick of it to be quite frank with you. I am forgetting what it left of at. This is the one I was talking about in the paragraph above where you also are on the robbers team and you hate the police that are supposed to be saving lives and shit. A wee bit of role reversal. In the 4th season I think it was, and that bloody body guard tried to save everyone I was fuming. I grew an attachment to them all and I won’t give anything away but like they really didn’t need to off that one person. But if you like
– longer episodes but not like boring long
– good robbery story line
– role reversal
then this is the one for you. I wouldn’t say there is much humour and it is defo more tense, but it is defo top tear entertainment if you ask me.
How I Met Your Mother
The next couple of shows are gonna be basic as fuck but we have to address them because it would be disrespectful not to. This show is great. It has the whole “Friends” vibes and you feel like a family with them and you get familiar and comfortable with the show. It is great you know, but like, can I just say one thing. What the fuck? Like seriously, if the actors and the writing weren’t good for this then I would be wiping this show off because it’s utter shit. Like they stretched it out to the max because the dad really could have just said “i met her at so and so’s event” (I don’t want to spoiling anything) and then the ending when you find out what happened to the mother and you are like ok what the fuck. Like we really were not given a chance to know her. What I think they also should have left out or just cleared up was the fact that they always mentioned “your mother was there that day” but it literally doesn’t help out with the plot at all except for the room mates apartment. But, to be fair, despite all the shit I just said about it, it is a freaking awesome show and the actual episodes are amazing. Over all it is a banging classic and if you like
– “friends” vibes
– short videos
– older TV shows from the friends sort of time
– feel good
– not a solid plot line but stays on track of a plot if you get me
then defo watch this. I would say I don’t have a way with words but I don’t know how to say it, just know that I mean it is a great show and if you haven’t watched it, you are uncultured.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
This one is also the same vibe as friends and how I met your mother as in it is a feel good, kinda older and just fucking hilarious. This one is perfect for all the people with a sarcastic sense of humor, me, because they really take it to the next level. I near piss myself it is so funny. I do kinda admit though that at the start I wasn’t really feeling it but then when I knew the characters more, I couldn’t get enough of it. They are all so weird but like so normal but like kinda like me but not at all. They are just perfect and relatable but I have also never done anything like them. Charlie and Deandra literally crack me up. The fact they always just hate Deandra no matter what she does literally kills me and it never gets old. It’s so funny even just thinking about it. Defo a must watch but you gotta get through the first bit because it is a little slower to get into. Defo watch this if you like
– friends and how I met your mother vibes
– sarcastic comedy
– relatable but also not relatable shows
– short episodes
– feel good
– not a big plot line but still a plot
– binge-worthy shows
So yeah, you better have heard of it and you better start watching it because you will regret not watching it. Like it is so funny and I got through it so quickly. I would gladly watching again.
I feel so dumb for saying this, but it took me way too long to get the joke of the Roland guy. The characters name is Roland Schitt and I am so dumb for taking so long to figure that out. Also, quick trivia question. Why the fuck has the mum not been in more shows and movies since Home Alone because she is funny as fuck. Like I hadn’t seen her in anything for ages and it blew my mind to see her act this role. Her accent and everything about her is so funny. The way she says “behbeh” for “baby” makes me actually die of laughter. They are all absolutely awesome actors and are so perfect for every little part of the show. The episode where the shop got robbed was so funny. Like he really just gave him a gourmet meal to go. I haven’t watched it in a while so I don’t remember everything but I do know that you have to watch it if you like
– a new era of “friends” vibes
– shorter episodes
– sarcastic comedy
– over all comedy
– feel good show
It is a classic we have to admit, even though it isn’t old. We also need to start a petition to get more shows featuring the Mum because she is a legend and the best actor. She was perfect for the role.
I can’t really be arsed to type much more so here is a quick list of other great shows
- Friends because obviously!
- Atypical because duh
- The Office because it’s an absolute classic
- Grey’s Anatomy because I am THAT basic bitch and it is absolutely amazing
- Derry Girls because you gotta represent the home country and also it is fucking hilarious
- Friday Night Dinner because Shalom this thing is hilarious
- Modern Family because it is relatable, short episodes, great acting and fucking comedy gold
I am sure there are lot of other shows I haven’t mentioned but this is what you are getting so get over it. I hope you agree with this because if you don’t then you might be unwell. Don’t forget to like, comment, follow and share with your friends to see who you can really trust. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
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?
You know. 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. But if you are being passive aggressive or cheeky in front of me or behind my back, I won’t hesitate … Continue reading I’m not above a fight
The first year of high school. This was in 2016 I think, but it was the worst year of my life. I want to post on here to see if anyone else can relate or to show them that it will get better.
I remember the first day of school, I was nervous because everything was so new and I had no clue what to expect. The only person I knew was my twin and I was so lucky to have her there because I don’t know where I would be today if she had not been there with me. To be honest, I don’t think I spoke to anybody else for the first couple of days. Everyone was so loud and outgoing. They seemed to know everyone so well, yet I couldn’t gather up the courage to say hello to the person beside me. I remember going home that day exhausted, holding back tears and wondering how I could spend the next 7 years of my life in this hell whole.
It wasn’t until a couple days in until me and my twin finally mustered up the courage to ask a group of girls whether or not we could sit next to them. They were all nice and said yes so we sat with them and I ended up sitting next to them for the rest of the year. Not for one second did I think they actually liked me though. I thought that they were too nice to say anything, they found me annoying and ugly. I thought that they just liked my twin and I was the annoying sister that tagged along. They all seemed so beautiful, confident and smart and then there was just me. Even at one point, my twin was in the same class as one of them and they said ‘at least I have one of my friends in my class’ and I still didn’t believe they like me. Even though they literally said it out loud that they saw me as a friend. My brain just could not accept it.
Every night, for what seemed like half the school year, I would cry in my room at night. And I know that sounds so ridiculous but I did because I was so scared for the next day. I was scared I would fail school. I was scared I would never make a friend. I literally couldn’t help it. My mum would come into my room most nights, seeing me crying and I felt like such a nuisance. I mean who cries in high school right. I can’t describe to you the fear and hurt I had. I had no clue how I could move on from that. I truly believed my life would be like that forever and I hated myself so much for that. One time in biology class, on of my friends saw that I was nearly in tears and she asked me how I was. Like genuinely asked as though she cared about me. How weird is that right? I swear to god though, 2016 me was worse at taking hints than a man. I mean they just flew right past me.
I am going to leave the rest of the depressing stuff because, well, you can get the jist of how terrible it was. Traumatizing some may say. But lets go onto the present. Yes, it has gotten better, and you better believe it.
You know that group of girls I was talking about, the ones I sat next to during lunch. Well, yeah, 5 years on and they have been my best friends throughout high school. No drama, just great, caring, reliable friends. There is only 5 of us in our group, including me and my twin, so it is quite small to be honest, but I know them so well. We get on like we have known each other forever and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. One of my favorite quotes is ‘what would you rather? 2 pound coins or 200 pennies? The 2 pound coins obviously. Each one is so much more valuable. It doesn’t take up so much room and they are more useful to me. Where as, if you got 200 pennies you would always be losing them or giving them away. They take up so much room and each one is worth nothing. They don’t matter much. Replace the money with friends. Would you rather 2 great friends that you adore and get along with so well, or 200 acquaintances? Yes you could say they are all your friends, but you don’t know them all that well. You lose some, throw them away. The don’t mean a lot to you. So eventually you are left with 1 or 2 who you don’t really like and maybe someday you will have 0. Always appreciate your close friends.’. I love that quote so much because it is so true. I was always so fixated on becoming popular, having the most followers on Instagram, knowing everybody. I was so sad that I never had that. For years I had to accept that I wasn’t one of the ‘popular kids’. But now I know that that doesn’t matter. I am never going to lose these friends and they are such an important part of my life now.
As for the other parts of school life, I don’t cry at night… not for those reasons anyways. I get decent grades. I have friends. Sure I still get the same thoughts at points but they are less frequent now. So many things change and if you are in the same position that I was in now, just know that it is OK to feel that way. I have felt similarly and it is so much better now, trust me. It may take a while but it is part of the process. It is just going to make you appreciate what you have in the future more. I am so sorry if you are going through this and if you are please dm me on Instagram (@period_t1) and you can talk to me about it.
Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you found it beneficial for yourself or gave you a better understanding of how others may feel. Make sure to be kind to everyone. Start a conversation because you never know, they could be your best friend. Just be yourself and don’t let anyone take you for granted PERIODT.
