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 to fight.
No this isn’t coming out of the blue guys, but something I did yesterday kinda got my blood boiling if you get me. Anyways, here I was at my friend’s house for moral support because I was about to call my work and be like “hey girl so for medical and educational reasons I’m not gonna be able to work more than 8 hours a week but obviously I can work more on holidays thanks”, and here my manager does the longest sigh ever, literally I could almost smell her stinking breathe it was that loud, and I was like shit what is about to happen. Then this bitch really stops the sigh and goes “that’s not really helpful for us”
😮 Did I ask?! No I think the fuck I didn’t so why the hell did you have to say that. Would you prefer I didn’t work any hours? Do you want me to quit because I’ll be more than happy to get out of this bitch. Like I actually don’t even like work. When I tell you I was shocked, I mean I was back-from-war-tazer-in-the-back shocked. I still am at the moment tbh.
But anyways, after that, I paused because I was in denial at that stage or something and then I was just like “Ummm well… It’s for medical reasons as well” because my doctor told me to say that so she legally couldn’t fire me for it (I also wouldn’t care if she did because then id use and never have to work again, I’m not too proud to miss that opportunity bitch) and here she was acting all nice again, miss cheeky bitch tryna get on my good side again. Like I actually have to go to work with her today and if she comes up to me and starts talking shit, I will happily throw hands. I mean I’m terrified of her too, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but she barely knows me and doesn’t know how hard I can hit. BTW this is a joke don’t be calling the police
Anyways yeah that happened and it really made me realise how much I HATE, despise, loath, work. Do I get paid minimum wages to only get a 20 min break during illegal hours?! I think the fuck not. Like I have enough money saved to get my ass out of that hoe and I only stay cause I want my parents to be proud of me lol. But you have to admit what she said was petty uncalled for. Like it was not necessary. I actually despise the working world and it sucks the little bit of life and dignity inside of me.
So what do you guys reckon I should do? Quit or just realise that this is life. Also if anyone is like a law person, is there any way I could use for doing illegal hours with only a 20 minute break. I mean that would be ideal lol. 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?
To any foetus child out there who is like what the fuck are genes, basically they are the characteristics that we get from our parents and they make up who we are and what we look like. For example, I inherited my dad’s white ass Irish skin which burns like a bitch whenever a bloody tea light goes within 1 mile of it. So it’s not ideal. I also inherited his lack of eyebrows which shocked me, but you couldn’t tell because you couldn’t see my eyebrows expressions. I slightly blame my twin for that because, although it is probably scientifically impossible, I believe she robbed them from me in the womb. Unfortunately that doesn’t stand well in court so I never got back what is rightfully mine smh
I do have blonde hair which really is the only thing going for me but it is going darker and I resent that but it is what it is. Oh and I forgot to mention, I swear my twin stole my teeth because I have two missing and she’s a bit sus if you ask me. She isn’t little miss perfect after all. When she dies I swear I’ll find a long note releasing the truth. I don’t know why she would do it but like it meant that for 13 years of my life I looked like your crazy young cousin whose only personality trate is losing their teeth. And now I have fake teeth that I sometimes think will fall out. IM FUCKING 16 YEARS OLD YET I’LL LITERALLY HAVE FAKE TEETH DRILLED IN MY MOUTH AT 18. I remember one time when I had to put my fake teeth in my retainers and one day I forgot them for some dumb fucking reason and I was like dad we need to turn back and he was like no. The trauma this man caused right then was astronomical but he didn’t give a shit. I kid you not, I had to spend that whole day trying not to smile with my teeth or talk to anyone but then in one of my classes I forgot and smiled at someone and they looked at me like what the fuck and then was like “where have your teeth gone”. Keep in mind I was 13-14 so all my teeth should have fallen out and grown back so it was weird. I also regret this moment because I could have pranked them so easily by acting scared and going “oh my god where the hell did they go” but no I had to really say “I forgot them at home”. I FORGOT THEM AT HOME! What the actual fuck. No teen should have to say that they left their teeth at home. I am still recovering from that chat.
But back to what I wanted to talk about today. My pale ass skin. I kid you not, I only have two different options. White as fuck or red as fuck. Yesterday I thought I would switch it up a bit so I got burnt to a crisp. I regret it. Why do I never learn. I literally thought I could wish my way into going tan but instead I look like a fucking stop sign. It was dumb how it happened though because I must have forgotten to put suncream on like half of my legs and I didn’t realize. Like I knew my attention span was shit but I thought I could at least pay attention to this. So I had work after and I was basically cooking the meals on my legs cause they were burning so much and then when I took them off later I thought I was turning into Elmo because those bitches were RED. I basically bathed them in aloe Vera and cried because I am now currently on the way to a beach where the general public are and they can see my bright ass legs. Everyone also seems to have to point them out. Like just when I stop thinking about it someone needs to pop out from the sky and go “OH MY GOD” literally like Janice from friends “YOU ARE GLOWING” and I look at them like no shit Sherlock. I didn’t realize that my legs could double as a flare to attract planes and a heater to toast our sandwiches. Leave me and my burns alone. And of course my twin fans. That cheeky bitch. How did I get the pale skin, invisible eyebrows, missing teeth AND the mental illness 😮
Anyways that is the post and I’m glad to get that off my chest. Please feel free to comment some things you inherited from your parents or whether you relate to some of the things I have. Have fun in the sun and don’t forget suncream bitches. 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

Let’s play a quick game of never have I ever. Never. Have I ever needed to hear that. Never have I ever wanted to hear that. Never have I ever felt good after hearing that. Never have I ever gone to someone’s house and they didn’t say this. Never have I ever been more offended. But literally why do people think that it would be a good thing to say to a teenage girl that they look just like an old, balding, wrinkly, angry, sore backed man. Like seriously what the fuck made you say that. There was actually one time I went to my sisters boyfriends house for some reason and I had never seen his parents before but I kid you not, the first thing they said to me was “you look just like your dad”… what dumb fuckery is that because I didn’t even know he had seen them. Like what the hell. Needless to say, I never saw them again. Highly unappreciated to be honest with you.
The saddest thing is though is that I can see it. Like they aren’t wrong. Did they need to point that out though? No. But they aren’t wrong. One time at New Years there was this thing where you had to guess who was who from their childhood photos. Don’t ask why. But we just did. And I was looking around when my sister called me over and was like “look at this” and so I did. She covered the hair of my dads picture and was like “look”. This bitch really called me out because it literally looked exactly like me. Great start to the new year am I right. Like why the actual fuck did I have to inherit his non-existent eyebrows and his literal 5 head. Not appreciated father.
But yeah, I never get compared to as my Mum but like I guess looking like my dad, while embarrassing, let’s me know I am not adopted because as a child I would be like “Oh mY GoD iM aDoPteD” just because I the only one in my whole family that has blonde hair. What do you guys get compared to. Is there anything other than your parents you get compared to or maybe even a celebrity! The only celebrity I’ve been compared to is the bloody monster from the goonies. He is such a babe though I guess.
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to like and comment below if you have anything else to add. I’ll see you tomorrow for more hopefully and I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
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.

Right, can someone please tell me why the FUCK is everyone getting married. Now, I don’t mean people in their 20’s or their 30’s or anything normal like that. But I mean people my fucking age, a teenager, getting married! I mean, I get it. True love and all at shit and meeting the love of your life but for fuck sake mate. You are still learning the reproduction system in biology class so give it a break luv. Every time I open my bloody snapchat there is another person I know that is getting married and here I am lying in my bed, looking like chewbacca, with no eyebrows, in my PJ’s. I swear to god that is literally the reason I am slowly backing away from society. Either that or my mental health 🙂
There are also so many people my age getting pregnant, and I am not judging like, I think teen parents are totally fine and I am not judging you, but like, I don’t even talk to any guys. The only guy I have talked to pretty much ruined men for me but you are here literally starting a family! Let me catch up mate, I’m still recovering from the last one. It is so creepy though. Every time I hear someone my age got married, the boyfriend (or husband I supposed 😐 ) literally is 20+ and I am sitting here like, luv you are a victim, the fuck. That literal pedo man could be your father babes and it’s not ok. And you can comment all you want “age is just a number” and “they are in love” but then one week later they will be popping up on their story saying “nrs only real ones know” and in reality, everyone fucking knows because they video their life as though they are the kardashians. We literally don’t care OK! So if you are getting married, good luck to you, but I don’t really want some chav from down the road having my kids
Seriously though, where is this coming from. Is it in the vaccine or something, because it has just all happened at once. Babies and wedding rings bloody flying everywhere. I swear that I am the only girl alive that isn’t talking to another guy, or anyone to be honest lol. I think if someone where to go up to me and propose while I literally am not even at the legal age to drive, I would be sprinting away. You’ll see me on the news, fucking Forrest Gump up in this bitch.
Is it becoming a trend or something? That would make so much more sense to be honest, and would make me feel less lonely. It is literally one of those things that makes you feel sad not to be a part of, but then when it happens to you, you feel like throwing up. Kind of like in cheesy movies when the guy looks over at the girl in class and they are proper in love, but then if that happened to me I’d be getting my pepper spray out. Would defo give me the ick like. Wait! Oh my god, what if you literally loved someone with all your heart but then when they went down on one knee you got the ick! What would you even do! That would defo be me though, no lie. That’s scary. But hopefully I won’t have to figure that our for a while. I’m gonna take it slow you know. I still need to learn how to talk to guys without jumbling up my words like bloody scrabble. So yeah, I have quite a ways to go. Could I ask though, to any of you out there who are like teenagers and are married? What did your parents say, because I would be on the streets. And like, do you actually love them or do you just feel bad for them lol 😮 But I mean, if you actually have found the love of your life, I respect that and wish you all the happiness in the world. Damn I am lonely.
Thank you so much for reading this. Was kinda just a wee bit of food for thought you know because I have been seeing so many people doing massive things. If you enjoyed this, please like, follow and comment down below. I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
I am gonna just make this clear that I am not talking about every single teenager. I know people who feel the way I do and people who don’t, but yeah, not everyone feels this way.
So I am starting school next week. Yep, back to the dark side. So this means that this is my last week of online school. My granny asked me the other, ‘you excited to be going to school?’. I looked at her and was like ‘no’. LOL obviously I wasn’t rude but I was basically saying that I can not be arsed to put my foot in my school uniform, never mind in the school. Every adult is always shocked or ashamed when I say that but it is the truth, so, just so I don’t have to explain this to every single person, imma write it here.
Number 1 : Socialising
This is gonna make me sound like the cheekiest bitch but it is true. I can’t wait to see my friends, don’t get me wrong, but I will have to have those bloody awkward classes where you kind of talk to the people beside you, but it is just the things like ‘I am so tired’ or ‘you excited for the test LOL’. They literally give me chills and I am not wanting that. Please save me. And then when you have to act nice to the teachers despite the fact they just screamed at you for being close to them in the hall even though they were the ones going the wrong way anyways. Literally brings tears to my eyes
Number 2 : Focus
I’m gonna have to search up that word soon because it is no longer in my vocabulary. I can’t even sit through a 60 second TikTok video, so how the hell am I meant to focus for a 60 MINUTE lesson about something I could not care less about. Their voice is no longer background noise, it will be the whole thing :,(
Number 3 : Glasses
To my fellow four eyes, I am sorry. You may be lucky like me and can actually find the sweet point where it doesn’t actually fog up you glasses, but this is a pro-move to be honest. But whoever sits beside me on the day they do fog up, get to safety because I will be punching the next thing that breathes. For me it is basically like when your hair annoys you. Yeah, it is that bad.
Number 4 : Technical difficulties
Imma be in this bitch telling the teacher that my mic doesn’t work and they will be there like ‘what the fuck, you are literally in school’. And it scares me. I don’t know crap. We are all going to have to laugh at there jokes that don’t make any bloody sense.
Number 5 : Waking up in the morning, thinking about so many things
Do you realise that I am gonna have to get up at 7am. I am not allowed to lie in bed for a while or nap during class, yet I have to use my brain more, walk around all day, and actually focus and talk to people. This really can not be happening to me. I like my bed and I don’t want my eyes to feel so heavy. I will not be in a good mood.
Number 6 : My Back
To be fair, my back has literally been destroyed since we started online school, but the thing is, my school bag weighs as much as me. No joke. And you expect me to carry that around all day? Just be glad I am in the UK and have free healthcare because I’m gonna need it.
Number 7 : Cold
I’m not sure what it is like in your school, but for us we have to keep all our windows open to let the rooms ventilate or whatever. So that means the cold NI winds will be blowing through all day. And we haven’t been in school since winter, so it is going to be absolutely freezing. These little cheap skates also don’t like to use heating anyways despite the fact it is literally illegal for us to be in school at this temperature. The thing is, my dad is kind of like that too, he never puts the heating on :C but at least I have a blanket I can use.
Number 8 : Sitting
During online school I have acquired, what I like to call, the foetus form. This means that when I sit down, my body instantly goes into a ball. I mean literally right now my knees are up. Yes my knees ache, my back aches and I look like a literal foetus, but hey, it is comfy. I even saw my teacher do it once in a call and it kind of changed me to be honest. I don’t even know how to sit normally now so I gotta learn before I go back to school.
Oh I just wanted to add one thing, I made a new revision playlist on Spotify so click here to listen to it
Anyways, yeah that is kind of my main points, to be honest. I really do want to stay at home, where I can be warm and comfy. Another point is that life is gonna be so boring because at least at home we are like ‘pandemic, how original’. But then afterwards, this will never happen in our lifetimes again and we have to go back to normal. LOL, way to leave on a depressed not but… Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
There are a lot of common things people get annoyed at, whether that is just having to sit around all day or the WiFi not working, just stuff like that. I am not talking about these things today, I am talking about the little tiny things that others may not notice, just like one of those tiny flies that fly around your face while you are talking and you just can’t stop getting distracted by it.
Silent But Deadly
I know what this title makes you think of, but that isn’t it. What I mean by it is that I hate it when there are certain teachers who ask a question and go quiet for way too long. Nobody is answering and nobody know who is about to start talking first. Maybe nobody will, but that is even worse. There are three ways this can end. 1, you speak first. Nobody else talks and you get it right. Well done you, you stopped the bomb. 2, you start to talk, but so does somebody else. You both stop starting and stopping to talk at the same time, just that little sidestep you do when trying to get past someone. You never speak on zoom again in fear of this happening. 3, nobody talks, the teacher waits longer, still nobody talks. Suddenly, you find yourself in deep shit. The teacher is shouting, complaining about everything going on in their life. Their marriage, quarantine, drinking problem. They stop. Everyone leaves. So yeah, a majority of the time, it is not ideal. I hate the silence with a passion.
Sweet Or Sour
Right, this is literally the most annoying ever. This is when the teacher’s are trying to act nice but everyone can tell they couldn’t give a shit. To be fair I don’t blame them, but passive aggressiveness annoys me in general. Like they just be staring at the camera and you can see it in their eyes that they are ready to slap us all, but they have ask a question like ‘hope you guys are all ok’. Oh my god, or they like ‘just text if you want me to help you with anything’ but you can tell they will give you fuck all if you ask them. The last example of this is also when we have had quite a quiet class, so everyone is a bit on edge, and then at the end of the class they say ‘has anyone got anything to ask’ and then time just stops. We all have our mouse on the end call button, even the teacher, but she just stares as if we have literally failed her as a class. She is as close to giving up as she is to the camera. Just their face staring. It do be giving me nightmares. Yeah, that kind of passive aggressiveness just gets to me :O
*crickets* THANK YOUUUUUU
Ok, so I guess this is nice for the teachers, but this is when the class is so quiet the whole time and then the teachers say ‘bye’ and then there is a long silence when everyone stays on the call waiting for one person to say ‘thank you’. Then everyone erupts and says THANK YOU at the exact same time. I do feel kind of bad if we don’t do that I guess, but the thing is, nobody wants to be the first person so you are just waiting there awkwardly and then all of a sudden your ears are blown off. I just can’t deal.
The most important thing is _/\/\/\_ is that all OK guys?
Just ignore my attempt of trying to portray a glitch through a keyboard. And to be fair, this kind of a big thing that happens to probably everyone, but… get over it, this is my blog. LOL anyways. You could have been sitting through a whole bloody lesson just for this one piece of info that you need and then that is the moment that they glitch. You just waiting for it and all of a sudden, BOOM, WiFi is non-existent. Yes, I probably could just ask for her to repeat that. Will I know? No. Why? Because then the exact same thing I explained in the first example will happen, and I am still recovering from last time. I mean maybe the thing she said wasn’t that important, right?
Time is Ticking Bitches
In our school, our classes are only supposed to be 45 minutes each to give us time for any technical difficulties and stuff like that. Now lets play a bit of ‘never have I ever’. Never have I ever finished class in 45 minutes. Never have I ever not been rushing to go onto my next class. Never have I ever had my class run into break and lunch time. Oh wait! I have actually. The only thing getting them away from it is the fact they are my favourite teacher. And every single time they keep saying ‘I am conscious of the time guys, don’t worry’. Umm, I don’t think you fucking are because the time is ticking. And then they keep going on with other questions and it is so dragged out because nobody answers and then they do a massive conclusion and then there is the whole bloody awkward THANK YOU thing at the end even though we have nothing to be thankful for!!!!
What Is Time Anyways
On the topic of time, I don’t think that the teachers really realise that the timetable is still a thing. They be starting and finishing these lessons as though they themselves are literally time. They also forget that, just because we at home, doesn’t mean we have more time for work. They be like ‘here is a big pile of homework’, we all panic but she says ‘don’t worry, I know it is a lot’, relaxing, then ‘I am setting it for tomorrow instead of the end of the day’, PANIC. They really woke up and chose evil.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed and this actually makes sense for some. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT
Last week I spoke to teens about mental health, like I’ve done dozens of times before. But this time it felt different. This was my first set of presentations since early 2020, before COVID-19 lockdowns. I’m a speaker for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. I present NAMI’s Ending the Silence program to middle grade […]What I Noticed While Talking to Teens About Mental Illness — Peace from Panic
You guys need to read this post. It is absolutely amazing to me because it kind of shows us all that there are actually adults out there who genuinely care and try to understand how we feel and why we do what we do. There are two really important questions in there that two brave people asked about which I think you guys could really benefit on, not just from the answers, but just to know that there are other people who feel that way and you aren’t alone or crazy for thinking those thoughts. But yeah, please give that a look guys and really soak it in. It isn’t long but it packs so much force.
Thank you so much for reading. Please like, follow and comment below other topics you would like me to mention, what this post meant to you, or just whatever you want. Hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
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.

This list could go on forever and have millions of different outcomes but I am going to talk generally and focus more on how I think so don’t worry if you don’t think the same things. There are countless numbers of things I could say, but just know that what you think is valid and I am not mentioning every little thing.
If I woke up one day and my parents and every other adult could hear what I thought, I would be terrified. And no, not for the thing you are thinking right now, get your head out of the gutter. But I would be scared because I think a lot of dark, scary things. Overall, I think my parents would be worried and scared because I am not the ‘little girl’ they think I am. My parents say I will always be their baby, because I am the youngest in the family, by one minute may I add but that’s beside the point. But no, they would definitely be so confused.
In my opinion, parents think that teenagers only think about how to piss them off or when we can run away and do drugs or something, but really, we think about so many mature things that they would think we don’t care about or understand. I remember one day I was volunteering at this run and then this adult was like ‘oh I think it’s going to be a warm summer’ and being the socially awkward person I am I said ‘I hope so’ because I mean who doesn’t like a warm summer. And then the man said ‘that isn’t good. Global warming is getting worse. But then I suppose your generation don’t really care about that stuff’. When I tell you I wanted to shout, I mean I was ready to have a full Greta Thunberg moment. I didn’t say anything because, well, I am socially awkward. It is so annoying how ignorant some people are. If my parents heard me think they would see how much I think about that stuff because, believe it or not, we are the ones that will have to live in this world long after you are gone. Sorry that was really morbid but it’s true. And you can’t blame us for global warming. You guys are the ones who created these greenhouse-producing products, and you are the ones who raised us to use them. And now we are left to clean up your mess. So don’t tell us that we know nothing because we know that we are going to be the ones to fix your mess.
Adults would also be surprised by how much I actually think about the future. These can be good things and bad things. I think about what jobs I’ll do and how to save, start a business, invest in stocks, get a house, a family. But I also think about depressing stuff because my mental health is not top-notch. I don’t know if this is just me but I actually do think about ‘grown-up’ things. I do worry about not being able to get a good job because I failed my test. I do worry about being homeless because the prices of houses are only increasing. I do worry about how I will handle living on my own and paying off everything. They truly do underestimate us because they only remember the bad things we did. They never remember the mature things we do.
One of the useful things for them being able to hear our thoughts is that they would finally understand why we are being ‘grumpy’. Whether it is because we fell out with our friends, our parents came home angry which in turn made us angry, or we are having a bad mental health day. They always assume that it is us just being a ‘teenager’ and then completely dismiss us. Yes, sometimes we can just be having a bad day, but everyone does. We never say to you ‘why are you always so angry? It’s all of that phone time’. No because for one that is disrespectful for us to say what you say but also because we have sympathy and understand that it must be something that happened today. We aren’t all selfish animals you know, if anything I am overly sympathetic and that is why I am never truly happy. I always think about others and never myself. My goal in life is not to make your day worse. It’s not even close to that. If you could hear what I was saying to myself you would finally understand why I don’t want to talk or why I want to lie in my bed all day.
Thank you for reading this. Obviously I didn’t add all the things they would realise but I didn’t want to make this to long. I might make a part two in the future, so please comment if you would like that and feel free to comment any other things you would like me to mention. Stay safe and know you are loved.

OK, so this one is gonna confuse all the Karen’s out there so let me break it down for you. Not all teenagers are disrespectful and/or criminals. Now I hope you understood that but I’ll give you more information now.
Teenagers are not only split into 2 groups like they are in the movies. There are more than just brats and nerds. Don’t get me wrong there are some annoying mofos in this world but sometimes if you get to know them they aren’t so bad. So if a kid walks close to you and doesn’t fall to their knees and bow down to you, that doesn’t mean they are disrespectful. They just have a bit of self respect.
A lot of the time people have to act like they are tough to be able to stay with their friend group and not get beaten up so before you start shouting at them, just know that they probably aren’t a bad person. Like I don’t know what they taught you in school but we are taught that people have to put on a ‘mask’ to hide who they are so we need to appreciate that. So take your Donald trump-loving-ass back to school bitch.
I don’t know if anybody else feels this way sometimes but when I go on a walk or do anything with my friends, I get scared that people are going to think that I am a disrespectful teen. I try to not look intimidating and me and my friends are nice people but when it gets a bit dark or if we are quite loud I worry that we are gonna be thought of as ‘regular teens’. WTF is a regular teenager anyways because there isn’t one group and everyone is different. I mean I understand they think regular teens are rude and create a lot of mess but they literally judge that from the split second they see us from their car. Just because it is dark outside doesn’t mean we are literally smoking weed or about to rob a bank. For me it just means that I lost track of time with my friends because I was having fun. I mean I don’t know about you but I am TERRIFIED of being out at night. Mainly cause I am a teenage girl and there are sketchy people around.
I think that movies affect adults too much. I would say a majority of the people my age are nice people and completely different to what is shown in movies. Like shockingly different. I mean movies just want the drama so obviously they are fake. Yes, there are some annoying people my age that I am quite scared of but they are probably like that for a reason. Like a bad home life or just in the wrong crowd.
I just hate the fact adults immediately assume that I am going out to get drunk or rob a bank or something. I
mean maybe I’ll have a wee drink but really I just want to enjoy the years of semi-freedom before I have to work a 9 to 5 job. Why can’t we do anything without being watched by security guards or Karen’s. Just let us have fun. And then they hit us with ‘I was a kid once, don’t try to fool me’. First of all, where the hell were you going with that because you basically just admitted that you were as ‘rebellious’ as us, so who are you to tell us off. And secondly, when you were a kid, smoking wasn’t seen as giving you cancer and probably you were hit with a ruler in school, so bitch times have changed in the past 50 years. Don’t compare us to you.
So yeah, to end, let us have freedom and not be scared of being judged. Maybe we wear short skirts because we feel good, maybe we don’t smile at you because aren’t having a good day, or maybe you need to reevaluate your perception of teens. But what do I know, I am only a teen myself.
I really want to keep all my posts free for everyone but if you could donate even a little change to keep this going i would appreciate you so much. No pressure of course but if you have the money to spare.
