Merry Chrysler!

Merry Chrysler!

Merry Christmas guys! I want to keep this post short and sweet because honestly who the fuck wants to read this on Christmas but if you are then I respect you and you a real one. But anyway lol I know this year has been kinda very shite but it’s nearly over and we made it through so well done! I also hope you all still have a great Christmas even though I know a lot of us haven’t really felt very Christmasy lately which I don’t really know why and is kind of a shame but like oh well. Hopefully, we’ll fit the vibe check on the day.

I’m not gonna say all the “it’s about giving not receiving” but like enjoying getting the gifts you deserve and earned. Don’t feel bad because you should be treated like royalty. Obviously, we all need to stay humble and be so grateful for what we get in life but know that as long as you react in the right way and focus on what is important, you can have nice things.

Advertisements

I also predict that a lot of you will be reading this at the end of the night when you have your annual Christmas cry and I want you to know that it’s ok and you aren’t a weirdo. Christmas most likely went perfectly and for whatever reason, you are crying for at the moment, it will pass and everyone is ok. Usually, for me, it’s kinda like your emotions catch up with you because you are just non-stop all day, or you have hyped it up so much in your head that you are sad that it’s gone and you have to go back to normal life. There is also the fact that you feel as though you may not have been perky all night and you kind of overthink about what you did or said. I have found we all get this crying surge at the end of Christmas and you are just standing there like “ok what the actual fuck is wrong with me? Why am I crying on Christmas?” But honestly, it’s normal and you’ll get through it eventually.

Advertisements

So I suppose I won’t keep you for much longer, but I hope you have an amazing day doing whatever it is you do on Christmas. Hopefully, it is all pretty much back to normal for you all and you get to enjoy something semi-normal this year. Let yourself enjoy this day and go out and have fun. Also here is a quick reminder for people who get really stressed out about presents and feeling bad because you don’t think you spent as much on them or gave as much as them, just know that they appreciate you so much and anything that shows you thought of them for even 1 second is probably so thrilled no matter what you give them. Don’t be so hard on yourself and I’m expecting to hear how your day went. I hope you have a great Christmas, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

For those who may not watch TikTok, there has been a sort of trend going around lately of a man that keeps dancing to George Ezra’s song “green, green grass”.

10 Top Tips To Stay Warm In Winter That Actually Work

If your dad is like mine in any way at all, they refuse to put the heating on, or at least not high enough to actually feel the effects. So I am nowhere to give you some tips for staying warm in your house and don’t forget to share this with the rest of your family just as a wee tip because they will really appreciate it. But let’s just get right into it. Oh and that reminds me, make sure to read the text underneath each tip for more explanation and how to do it for optimum warmth.

Advertisements

1. Turn On The Heating

Now I know that sounds like a bit of a stretch, but the easiest way for you to stay warm inside in every room of your house is to turn on the heating. Surprisingly enough it isn’t that hard to do so and can work quickly. I know some people may complain about the money but the truth is you would rather be warm and spend a bit more money or be literally dead with more cash that you can’t even use. So definitely this is a great one to think about

Advertisements

2. Put On a Jumper

Make sure to read this explanation because it is important. What you want to do is look in your wardrobe and pick out a nice thick jumper. This will really help to keep you warm when you go downstairs to turn on the heating. So while that is 2 steps, it is very effective and one of my favourites

Advertisements

3. Put On Slippers

I highly recommend this for those who have wooden or tiled floors because it is scientifically proven that cold feet will make the rest of you cold. Surprising isn’t it! So it’s important you have something on your feet for going downstairs to turn on the heating to your house

Advertisements

4. Go Into A Smaller Room

The science behind this is that smaller rooms stay warmer because the heat is less dispersed. That is why I go to my utility room which is the smallest in my house and conveniently also where my heating controls are. So I go into the small room until the heating is on for long enough and then go back to my nice toasty bedroom.

Advertisements

5. Stay Close To People

So I suppose this isn’t the best during ‘rona and also isn’t great for people who don’t really like… people. But this is great because of body heat and shit. Like penguins do it. So how to start with that is just whenever you have to go do something no, do it with someone else. This could be going to the toilet, going to watch tv, or in this circumstance, going to switch on the heating. So yeah that is a great way to stay warm

Advertisements

6. Stay Active

I know that a lot of you will see this and be like “umm the fuck? I’m not doing that” and then swipe but it doesn’t actually last that long and you can do it in your house, so depending on how big your house is, this could take somewhere from 1 minute to 3 minutes. So here it is and listens closely because it is quite tricky, go down the stairs (making sure to take deep breathes) which is great for cardio. Then go and click the button to turn on the heating (don’t pull a muscle pls) which is great for muscle strength and then go back up the stairs but slowly so that you can cool down a bit and then by the time you have cooled down from the exercise the heating will keep you at a comfortable temperature

Advertisements

7. Speak To Others

Communication is key and we need to recognize how it can also help us achieve some stuff that we need. You might be wondering how speaking can help you to warm up, and it is really simple actually. All you have to do is take a deep breath, and at the top of your lungs you shout “can some turn on the heating?!” The only fault is that sometimes parents won’t want to do that so it could mean that you have to resort to some of the options that are above, but if you get the right tone and volume, then this is definitely a good option to go for.

Advertisements

8. Shower/Bath

This one is actually no joke a good one but the thing is you will be warm during it and then when you get out it will be even worse than before so I guess you just gotta weigh up the pros and cons at that point. And for me, baths are boring as fuck but I like the sound of them so when I have one I basically have to just bring my whole bedroom in with me so I have something to do. It’s also hard to get the right balance between boiling hot and sweating your ass off and being absolutely freezing. So I usually go for the classic shower, not that you give a fuck.

Advertisements

9. Use Single-Use Plastic

This may be confusing for some but if we keep using plastic the way we have done for a while, our whole entire earth will warm up. I’m pretty sure it’s called global warming or some shit but yeah although it may take a year or so, we could soon have natural heating. It could kill us all but then again at least we would die warm. Every cloud has a silver lining. *pls understand this is a joke because I don’t want David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg running after me*

Advertisements

10. Listen To Anti-Vaxxers

This may seem hard to be able to achieve but it actually isn’t. There are surprisingly a lot of idio- I mean people who don’t want the vaccine. You can find them in the streets, but other hotspots include the Managers office of your closest restaurant or supermarket. There is also many reported to be near your local town hall and can be recognized by their chants “we want freedom” or something along the lines of that. If they by chance don’t have a sign then just look out for the usual Karen haircut. The reason this will keep you warm is because it will make your blood boil. You will try not to punch them so bad and try to speak with them reasonably but that takes a lot of energy to do. So it will both distract from the pain of the cold, and redirect it to the pain that is society. I would even say that you can speak your mind to them because it can help to create heat by movement. So I guess just take your pic!

Anyways, that is me all done for today and I hope this did really help you guys. Also please don’t destroy the planet that would be greatly appreciated actually. But yeah no stay warm and I hope you have an amazing winter and that Santa treats you well. It’s already bloody stormy where I live so really getting in that winter mood :/ I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT

Selfishness is Comforting

I know, I know, this sounds so bloody stupid but I swear that by the end of this post you will completely agree. Selfishness is comforting when you look at it in a particular way. And I’m almost certain that if you are someone who has hit rock bottom and ended up looking at motivational shit then you will have read that people don’t really concentrate on you all that much because we as humans are wired to only care about ourselves or some shit like that.

Advertisements

So why is that comforting? Why should you like the fact that nobody gives a shit about stuff that doesn’t affect them? Because they don’t give a shit! It is literally in the question. You can do whatever the hell you feel like and people will forget it in a second because they are back to focusing on themselves. Even if they aren’t outwardly selfish, we are wired to think and worry about ourselves and that is what we will do. We always overthink everything we do and wonder how people perceive us but they don’t. They don’t perceive us. They may have things to say and shit like that which I know sucks but overall it isn’t important. The most important thing in everyone’s life is themselves so while they might dwell on stupid, irrelevant shit, they are gonna move on and completely forget.

Advertisements

I have to admit that sometimes when people say that it can be quite depressing. I mean here is me literally telling you that nobody cares about what you wear or what you do and nobody gives a shit, but like you just gotta train yourself to see that in a good light. You can go out and wear what you want, do what you want, and be yourself because while people may have opinions and maybe they will say some shit behind your back or to your face but you just gotta realise that we as a species are selfish. Eventually, they are gonna forget but if they don’t they will eventually die and it’s hardly gonna be a family story that will be passed down from generation to generation. There isn’t gonna be a whole history topic about how you fell off a chair that one time, or how you had a bad hair day.

Advertisements

Let’s test something out. What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever seen someone else do? Did you answer it? OK, then what was the most embarrassing thing that you have ever done? If you are like me, you couldn’t think of anything embarrassing someone else did. Maybe it was something random like I think I saw this person trip up the stairs that one time in school, but do you remember who it was? Do you remember what they did after it happened? What do you really remember from that situation? Probably nothing and that is because it doesn’t matter. If we stick with the selfish shit, I can only really remember how I reacted and that’s if I could remember a situation at all. And while I don’t know all the science shit about brains and memories, but I know it’s a fucking smart organ, so I’d guess it wouldn’t store all that pointless crap. It just wants to survive and I don’t think that memory is something you need.

Advertisements

So next time that you go out, you go out with confidence and purpose because no matter what happens, nobody will make fun of you for it when you are 80. I would say that if they have as bad a memory as me that they wouldn’t even remember it in the morning. I dare you to just be yourself. Wear whatever the hell it is you want to wear. Maybe a funky pair of jeans, a top that makes you feel sexy, fucking socks and sandals! You do you bitch! Everyone is too selfish to care and that is one of the best things in the world. And if anyone seems like they are bothered by it for more than one second then they are jealous. They just want to be you because as I said, we don’t remember things that don’t affect us, so they obviously just want to become you!

Advertisements

Do you understand what I mean now? Selfishness is probably one of the greatest things we can remember when we feel scared to do something or embarrassed to dress a certain way. You can do what you want and people won’t even care or remember. If they didn’t remember you it’s probably because you inspired them to try out new fashion items or to be loud and proud. So you start the movement bitch! Go do whatever the hell you feel like and never apologize. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

Disney’s Deep Message Behind ‘The Little Mermaid’

I think we all gotta learn from Arial’s mistakes. No, not ‘don’t brush your hair with a fork’ but something else a lot deeper (pun not intended) that all the ladies out there gotta hear about. Btw this is in no way me tryna be a Karen and ‘cancel’ Disney, it’s just a good example lol.

So for all you people who haven’t watched the little mermaid (aka those who live in darkness) or those who haven’t watched it in a while, let me give you a quick wee rundown of what happens. So basically, this ‘main character’ talking fish human loves old shit, but then her dad explodes it, so being the dramatic bitch she is she swims away and finds a dying man in the sea. She fancies said man and literally brings him to shore and stares at him for a while and then is like ‘shit I’m a fish’ scuttles back into the sea. Oh, and meanwhile a Jamaican crab is following her, obviously. But then Arial gets all lovey-dovey for this guy she only looked at and begins to hate life in the sea despite the fact that is cool as fuck. But anyways, these eels are like ‘we got you bitch’ and sweep her away to this octopus bitch. She literally lives in a cave with all these crusty dead people’s soles and octo-bitch basically is like ‘I’ll give you feet’ and Arial is all biz and can’t wait but then octo-bitch is like ‘and I’ll take your voice’ so then Arial is like ‘oh shit but ok’. So she grows her feet and literally dies in the sea but then her fish friend swims her up onto the beach and she has to get a kiss from her manz to get her voice back. That is basically all that is important for this post. So hopefully that caught you up and we can get started.

So what was Arial’s big mess up? Let’s shout it for the people in the back! SHE SILENCED HERSELF FOR A MAN! Never will I ever condone such behaviour from a living person. I mean there is true love and there is idiocracy, and it’s a fine line but this bitch is so far from the line that she is in the dictionary under the word dumb. Like, obviously in terms of the movie I made it way too deep and it really does just add a twist, but what I am trying to say is that no queen should have to lose her voice for any prince no matter what. And I’ll say that ’til the day I die.

Advertisements

It is literally the 21st-century bitch. We educated, we grown, we got rights. So don’t let nobody take that from you. Like you really can’t give that up for a second because imagine one of the suffragettes was watching and saw you literally lose your voice just so you could get a man. Like that is pretty much the opposite of what they wanted and bitch they got what they want, so it’s about time we showed our gratitude and spoke our truth. I’m not gonna lie, I had stayed quiet for a guy before and I realise that isn’t good, but when you are in that situation you are willing to do anything to stay with them, even if that means taking away your opinion and thoughts. Like it is so shite to hear that people have to make themselves quiet and weak just for a man to like her even remotely.

Arial literally could have lost everything just so she got find this man who she knew nothing about and that is similar, in some ways, to how girls act nowadays trying to get a guy. We should never have to lose our voice or sell our soul to the devil for nobody. I don’t care if it is fucking Brad Pitt or Tom Holland or whoever the fuck you like, you better speak up because if they don’t like that then that’s their problem and you shouldn’t change yourself. Let them come and go because someday some person will come and stay to hear what you have to say. They may even stand up with you to help amplify your opinions so now you are twice as loud. Even if they leave you and you lose everything, you still have your morals and your voice and that will get you further than anything else in this world

Advertisements

Thankfully large octopus people can’t really come chasing after you with a shell demanding your voice, but something similar is men and society in general. So you run girl. You run as fast as those legs can handle and you shout from the top of your lungs because you are just as entitled to an opinion as anyone else. You preach what you think and you show them was a boss bitch you are. Never change for anyone but yourself. Show younger girls from across the world that their voice is a superpower that we all have but we may not fully realise.

So get up on a stage, put your hand up in class, continue speaking when you’re interrupted in class and do whatever it is you need to do to get heard. But whatever you do, you must never ever apologize. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

The “Magical” Transformation That Happens When You Combine Two Of The Best Brain Reprogramming Technologies

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.

Why?

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.

You can’t mess with what works.

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?

It’s simple.

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.

This is why I use NLP in all my tools.

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.

However…

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.

Weekly Reminder

My last ever GCSE exam (hopefully) is on tomorrow. Pretty freaky. Didn’t really think I would make it this far. I was wanting to do one of the things where it is like after 2 years, 107 hours of study, 20 mental break downs etc. but I can’t add up all of the mental breakdowns I had because it is a fuck tone, while on the other hand, I could count all my study hours on one hand. Why is that literally not even a joke though lol? But anyway, this is serious. I have my biology exam tomorrow and let’s just say it isn’t my strong point, but I am excited to get it done and over with after 5 years of being forced to do it. I am kinda scared, kind of excited, very much exhausted, but I just wanted to make a reminder to all of the people out there who are in a similar situation or are doing something difficult at the moment. You never know, somebody could be reading this in 2050 on mars and they are reading this in their mind thinking it is so retro that I have to use my fingers to type and they are just vibing in some space hope. Either that or WW3 wiped all of humanity out lol. But even if you are that person, I hope this will help you in some way, although isn’t the only problem is the shortage of mums? Mars needs mums :/ sorry that was a bad one I have to admit. This is supposed to be serious actually, but I also wanted to talk about it in another way, through a story. So enjoy.

Advertisements

I am on the first step. You know, the steps you are told to take if you want to succeed. There are only 4 of them which seems easy, but it’s kinda hard. But maybe I am just overthinking these things. The first step, the one I am on, is getting straight A’s in school. That was a hard one to. I had to ignore friends and write lots of notes. I got very little sleep, but I got there eventually. Sure, I lost a lot, but it’s worth it, right? My next step is getting a degree. This one seems fun with the parties and friends, but I can’t quite see why people pay so much for it. I guess I will find out when I’m there. The thing is, step 2 is quite dangerous in terms of survival. A lot of people usually don’t make it past here because of mental problems, some completely lose the degree and go tumbling down the stairs. I have never seen anyone get back up after falling down. But that won’t happen to me. Obviously, it won’t, because I am different. My parents told me so. After you get your degree you can move on to step 3. Or as it better know, the point of no return. Once you get there they don’t let you back down, or at least they very rarely do. What is up there? Oh, a secure job. Or, well, they call it secure, but I have seen lots of people fall down from there. But that won’t happen to me when I get up there. I am going to be so smart and ready, and just like my parents said, I am different. So I am not worried about it. You have to stay there for a while though. Pretty much for the majority of your life. But it’s cool. You can get a family and a house. But that is pretty much it, I suppose.

Then comes the last step. Step 4. That can only happen if you have gathered a good enough pension in step 3. If not, then you are booted down the steps again. I don’t think they do much up there though. It is a lot of waiting to go through the pearly gates at the end. Why? Because the pension they got usually doesn’t leave much room for adventure and by that point, they are exhausted. Who can blame them though, it is an awfully long journey. I am not sure what is past the gates though. People come up with all types of stuff and it is pretty cool. I am looking forward to it I guess. I mean if I went all that way to get there, it better be worth it. But no matter what, I am still on the first step. Just waiting on the cold rock steps. People seem to like it here, but I don’t. I can’t stop getting the feeling that there is something more. I have asked others about it, but they say that is all fake and never actually happens. Especially to people like us. But I swear that at times when I look around, I see other steps in the distance. It just flickers and maybe it is a hallucination, but it seems so real. So fascinating. There are never many people on it though, despite the fact that it looks so much nicer than over here. Every time I see it, it stays for longer and it gets closer. I am fed up with trying to show the others because they make me feel crazy and it makes me move farther away. So I keep this to myself in hopes that someday I get close enough to reach them.
It’s been a week. I am on the 3rd step now. I mean it is fun but it gets me distracted from the other steps. I feel as though I am always looking at what else there is, and not at the next step to success like everyone else. I think I am just dreaming and I haven’t come to terms that this is the best way for me to get to the gates. The way that I can make my parents proud of me and get the right job for a comfortable retirement. It still bugs me though. I mean why, after all these years of being so set on what to do and how I will do it, I suddenly don’t want it anymore. I mean I am fixating on the impossible.

Another week. I have decided that I am going to jump. I can’t bear being on these steps anymore when I know that there is something else out there. At this point, I don’t even care if I don’t find anything because it will always be better than there. I have lost too many people to step 3 and I don’t want to become one of them. I have no skills for this, no knowledge. All of my schooling years have taught me nothing about how to make it to the other steps, so I have to find it on my own. There is no turning back now, but I am going to try everything I can to get to a better place.
I’ve made it! After all the long, lonely weeks, I have found the steps. I made sure to not let it out of my sight. I put everything I had left into getting there and I made it. When I got there, I looked up and my breath was taken away. I finally found where I was meant to be. The steps were nicely laid out, there weren’t as many people, it looked like a steep trek, but each seemed so much better than the one before. The people who fall down a step don’t get stuck at the bottom. They seem to have the support of some kind. I am pretty sure they call it knowledge, or determination, or something along those lines. There are so many more steps, but they get easier and shorter every time you get to the next one. The people look so much happier here than on my other step. Why did nobody tell me about this? Why was I told that the steps to success were over there when the ones right in front of me seem so much better? Well, I guess it is time to find out. It is time to get started.
I am on the first step. You know, the steps that were only in the movies and never talked about. There are many to go which seems hard, but it’s kinda awesome. Maybe I am different after all.
———————————————————— The end ————————————————————

Anyways, that’s the story. What this kind of means is just that, despite what other’s tell you and what you think is right, there are different steps out there. Despite the fact you might be told it is ridiculous or fake, it is possible. So no matter what happens with your exams, or later on in life, you aren’t useless, these just aren’t the steps for you. But when you find them, you will be so happy and it will be so worth the wait. So take the risk, go against what they say, and it will be so worth it.

Bucket Lists… What The Fuck

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.


“It’s Only 5 Weeks”

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.

Advertisements

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.

Advertisements

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.

A Wise Woman Once Said… and She Lived Happily Ever After

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

Advertisements

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.

Advertisements

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

Weekly Reminder

Hey guys, another week has gone by and for a lot of us, we may be going back to school next week. Well, I am anyways. I have a total of 18 exams in the next 5 weeks, all which goes towards my GCSEs (aka decides my future) so to say I am scared would be an understatement. Have I revised? No. Will I revise? I have no clue bitch. But I guess I just want to make this weekly reminder about the fact that, just because you are finding revision and school hard to get done, doesn’t mean you are lazy or dumb. Here’s what I mean

Advertisements

For the past year we have been chucked left and right, up and down, with no support or recognition. Yes, the government say they “understand” us, but they fucking don’t. Yes I can hear that they seem sympathetic, but answer me this, what have they done about it? What teenager have they seriously talked to about how they have been affected? What have they solved? Well, for the UK, the answers are, they have brought all the exams forward with little understanding of what we are being tested on or help with the topics. They have asked no teenager about their feelings and have just went off of stereotypes like “the reason they are struggling is because they are on their phone all day” or “they just don’t like school and that is why they are failing, they need to grow up”. And to answer, what have they solved… I have no fucking clue. I guess they are trying to give us a fair shot on predicted grades. Oh wait, but they gave us no warning of tests, with little preparation while a lot of us are in an unhealthy mental state. Hmm, I guess they eventually got us all back into school. Oh, but we have been bombarded with work and stress and little time to breather or settle in. You see, the thing with our generation is that we don’t openly show our emotions, or at least not in a way other generations would understand. I don’t know about everyone else, but for me there is a bad stigma around struggling mentally and when we speak up about an issue, it is seen as “disrespectful”. Then when everything gets to much and a tragedy happens, they wonder why we didn’t speak up and so they have an assembly. Then the cycle starts again. We miss a homework, the teacher gets mad, we tell them it is because we are struggling, they ignore us, something bad happens, they never learn from their mistakes.

Advertisements

You see, when you miss a homework, or when you don’t have the energy to revise, it is OK. And I don’t care what your mum, dad, carers, teachers, anyone, says because they have no fucking clue what is going on. Not the faintest fucking idea. And I have no clue what your situation is right now, but I know that there is something going on in your life. Whether it is just Corona or something else, you have something going on and I hear you. Don’t let anybody make you feel weak for the way you feel, or downplay the severity of your problems because it is not your fault and you need to know that. Shit happens, but for you, too much shit has happened. I am sure missing homework or failing exams is the least of your worries and that is just how these feelings are being expressed. Yet nearly every teacher is blind to that fact. They don’t see you thoughts, they don’t know your story, they don’t see the real you. So no matter how much they harass you, just understand this isn’t your fault and I am not gonna promise you it will get better soon because I don’t fucking know. I sure hope it does, but I can’t promise that. All I can say is that you aren’t alone. You have your whole class behind you, you have me behind you and no teacher can fully understand what you are feeling at the moment. Maybe you don’t even understand, that’s ok though. Life has been changing every single day since the beginning of 2020. News changes, families change, school changes, our routine changes. And just when we feel a bit settled in to one way of life, it is shifted. I know that for me, one of the many reasons I struggle with doing things such as homework or studying is because I feel as though it is going to change, as though I will start to revise and it will all be cancelled. As though I will have to go through all the mental pain of school and then all the mental pain of realizing it was all a waste. These past years have been filled with so much pain and we just don’t want that to continue any longer.

So, if you were to take one thing from this post, let it be the power to not let people make you believe that you are just lazy and that you are overreacting, but that you are confused and tired or the changes and pain. You are so strong and not doing homework doesn’t diminish that. Don’t let ANYBODY tear you down or make you feel less of yourself. Do you realise how much you have gone through to get to this moment? It is amazing how you have made it this far. Nobody knows your journey apart from you, so don’t let them write your future. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

What Would You Say To That Person If You Got The Chance?

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

Advertisements

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.

Advertisements

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

What ‘It’s OK Not To Be OK’ Really Means

This is kind of a wee daily reminder post. And it is motivational, hopefully, and not in away aimed at offending people.

We see this phrase everywhere. On buses, at school, on the school bullies Instagram post, everywhere. And it is 100% true. What I want to talk about though is what is left out from it. I sometimes worry that when people tell others ‘it’s OK to not be OK’ people just accept that that is who they are which is OK but then they don’t try to change it. What I mean is that it is totally OK to struggle with your thoughts, but you can’t ignore them. You need to go and get help, admit your struggle and open up. The phrase, ‘it’s OK not to be OK’ is a reassurance that you aren’t weird or crazy. And it doesn’t mean that you just need to leave it now. It doesn’t mean that you can just leave it be because mental health problems are OK, as long as you try to help them.

I really hope you all understand what I mean because sometimes I can find it really hard to communicate what I mean with my words. It may sound rude what I just said but I just want everyone to understand that everyone who struggles with their thoughts deserves to be helped. No matter how bad you think your thought are or aren’t, you all deserve help. And just because someone says that it is OK that you think those thoughts, it doesn’t mean they are OK to live with everyday. They mean that you aren’t crazy and that you can get over it. No matter what others say, you struggle with your thoughts. You can’t let anyone tell you it’s just a bad day, because only you know that. They can’t see behind the mask you hide behind. I am going to say this to you again in a more informed way, ‘You are thinking is not crazy, your thoughts are all valid, thank you for admitting that to me. Now I can help you get help and everything will be OK’.

Obviously it is quicker to say ‘it’s OK not to be OK’ but I just hope that you don’t think that people are degrading what you are going through. Please don’t take it as people being like ‘yeah I mean your feelings are valid but that’s a normal thing that you need to live with’ because that is completely wrong. So please get help. You may think you aren’t ‘bad’ enough to get help, but if you are struggling, it doesn’t matter what anyone else is going through because this is your life and you deserve to be happy, no matter what.

Over all, just know that you are loved and that it is OK not to be OK if you can get help. Thank you for reading. Like and follow so you read more of my content like this, also check out these great deals I got for you guys, just get a wee treat for yourself hun, you deserve it. This is your world, we just livin’ in it PERIODT.

What To Expect When Starting High School – Story Time Part 2

Advertisements

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.

Homework

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.

Exams

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.

Class Work

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
