Well hello there,
Wow it’s been over a month since I wrote my last blog post. What a loser. I know I am the queen of making excuses but this has honestly been a very hectic month, I’ve had lot’s going, lot’s of socialising (I know I’m shocked too) and this paired with lots of work means that when I am not doing anything I just want to sleep. Doesn’t leave much time for blog writing I’m telling you. But things have calmed down a bit now so I’m thinking it’s a good time to get the ball rolling with this again. Because I have missed the blog. Today I do not have any exciting makeup themed content for you (soz) but I just thought I’d have a little chat with you guys about what’s been going on.
Without sounding like a loser there has been a lot of personal growth this past month. Because I’ve made some amazing memories, as well as going through some stuff that is not so fun. But I’ve come out at the end of it all feeling pretty damn happy about my life, and an overall feeling that things are going well. Which is an exciting development when I think about my personal journey over the last year. So yeah. I feel like I am waffling about this a lot, sorry clearly I am out of practice. Let’s talk about happy events.
So first things first, I had my birthday! My birthday last year wasn’t the best (which sucked because it was my 18th), so I wanted to make the most of it this year. And thanks to my wonderful friends, I did just that. A few nights before my birthday I went out for dinner with a load of the losers that I call my friends, and it was so nice. A bit embarrassing when they’re basically screaming happy birthday in the middle of Ask Italian but it’s the thought that counts. I find it strange when we all go out because we’re all adults. We have been for a while, but it doesn’t really feel like we are. I think because a lot of us have grown up together through high school it feels like they’re still the 11 year old weirdos that I met them as. Not a group of adults going out to dinner together! An observation a make a lot around my friends. Moving on, on the day of my birthday, I spent the day at the arcade with my best friend, dinner with my family in the evening and then a night out in Brighton to finish it all off (the theme for my birthday night out was glitter. You’re damn right I’ve got glitter on my face. And I’m wearing a fully sequin dress). I had the nicest time, and they’re memories I’m going to hold close to me for a long time. If you’re one of my friends and you’re reading this, thanks for being relatively fun to hang out with and making my birthday a good one.
After that Easter came along, which has meant lots of busy shifts at work followed by various activities with my friends. A day in London with my bestest friend, exploring Hyde Park and seeing Disney on Ice. A fair few evenings in the pub having a laugh (again with the adult thing, how are we all old enough to be having drinks in a pub late into the night??) a couple of unplanned nights out with my friend Holly and a bit of reconnecting with friends I haven’t spoken to in a while. And making some new friends. It’s all been quite busy and it’s made me very happy, because it’s made me realise how lucky I am to have this life and that I should do everything I can to make the most of it. Pretty inspiring stuff when you really think about it (I’m going to try and make that the most philosophical this blog post gets)
In other news I got another tattoo, which probably isn’t very exciting for you but it is pretty exciting for me. Tattoos are strangely addictive, and even though they do hurt quite a lot I always leave the tattoo shop buzzing because I want to get another one. I won’t give you much more info on that because I think I might do a lil’ tattoo care blog post soon, just to keep things fresh around here. Because I do have knowledge about other things that aren’t makeup.
Last but not least, I have a very exciting bit of news; I got into uni!!! One of the things that has made this past month a bit stressful is auditions, I had my last two and so I’ve been doing a lot of prep to make sure I went in there feeling as confident as possible. And I found out on Wednesday that I got onto a Musical Theatre course with a school called BRICTT in Brighton! I’m so excited, the course looks perfect for what I want to do and living in Brighton is going to be amazing. So from here onwards I’m going to be preparing to move out in September, which means working out things like finance and a flat, and buying all the things I’m going to need (furniture, kitchen ware, new clothes…honestly it all gets me very excited) so I’ll try keep you all updated with that. Maybe a new little series or something, we’ll see… 😉
And so I think that’s all we need for this update! If you’ve made it to the end thanks for sticking around and reading it all, I appreciate it. I have lots of plans in my head for blog posts I want to do soon, so hopefully we’ll have some more variety in my blog posts. Also more frequency! I’ve been a bit lazy with it but I’m back! So hopefully it will all be good and much like everything else in my life, I’ll be able to get into the swing of it.
It’s good to be back guys, I’ll see you all very soon.
