Who I Am
I am A 19 year old girl from the UK, who just loves, writing and blogging about my life -everything & anything! That is why I thought i'd give blogging A go because it seems perfect for me! I know it will be a lot of work to get noticed but i'm not just starting this to 'get noticed'... it's for my own benefit too because it makes me so happy to write and I love sharing my views on things or just A simple picture of something -it makes me feel good about myself and it makes me feel calm! Even if no one reads it, it doesn't matter that much to me!
I suffer from Bipolar Disorder which is even more of a reason to start this blog because I think it will be good for me and it's a sort of therapy. I struggle to do daily activities because I am mostly always tired, so when I make a post on here it's like a big achievement for me. I really want to do more posts, but please understand if i take breaks.
I'm so excited for you to get to know a little bit more about me through this blog (my style, my hobbies, my likes&dislikes) and follow me on my journey through life! I am always going to stay true to myself and state true opinions.
I love photography, makeup, fashion, travelling, PENGUINS, anything arty like scrapbooking/colouring/making things and writing and reading (hence why i started a blog).
Ever since i was a little girl i've always been into gaming and computers and one point i used to be into cars, was addicted to the console and wore baggy jeans and tshirts, done nothing with my hair and hated makeup... believe it or not lol. But now i love makeup and don't like cars, but everything else has always stayed the same!
To be honest, i'm still a BIG kid in a way, because i LOVE disney and i love going to sleep with a teddy bear and I collect them... I don't know why i just feel safe and happy and i'll always be like that because it is just me (and they're just too cute!!)... There's no point hiding/faking who you are because if people don't like it, then they don't like the real you, and not being your true self is the worst thing to do. Just BE YOU (TIFUL).
I also love penguins, i don't know why... i just have an addiction over them -the noise they make, the way they walk & they just look so cute!
I love spending time with my friends -the minority of them i have got lol. I used to have a lot of friends and lost all of them because I realised they just weren't true friends and you drift apart when you get older as you all go your separate ways. But i've always been friends with Rebecca and Katelyn since we were little, and i've shared the most memories with them (which i love going into adult-hood and taking all them with us). They make me smile and laugh which is what a friend should do, I enjoy both their company and they makes me feel good about myself and feel confident. I look forward to spending more time with them this year even though when you grow up it's harder to get a day where you're both/all free (Rebecca's always so busy but i love watching her chase her dreams of being a dancer)!
A recent friend I've made has been Taylor. We met through my cousin Luke -they're friends. We got talking about 2 years ago now and decided to meet up to do a photo shoot straight away and ever since then we kept the meet-ups/photoshoots up because we enjoyed the first one so much and we just clicked as friends and naturally got talking. Over the time in knowing her I've found out we have a lot in common. We don't really talk much outside of the photoshoots but we catch up with everything that's happened when we meet. Every time we meet we get closer/get to know each-other more, and I know I haven't got to know the full her yet and she hasn't got to know the full me yet -there's more to show, and I can't wait to get to know her more and I feel like this year -there's so many more opportunities that we'll have to do that! I hope.
For the upcoming year (2017) my goal is to travel places, even if it's not far... Like even seeing a new market, or a building or a new place, but I do want to travel abroad and that and just see the world, I also want to get a job and hold it down to save for a house and for holidays. I just want to work hard and be successful and make people proud of me and go up in the adult world. I also want to regularly blog because i'm really enjoying it. I'd love the opportunity to go to events, so I can meet lots of new people at them and make new friends and just have a really good time! I just want to make this year full of memories, adventures and cool experiences and to just have fun!
Ever since i was 12-13 i've had an interest in photography. I didn't just take 'normal' photos when i went on holiday's... I took my camera EVERYWHERE with me (holidays, shopping, up the park and to school sometimes even) and i always played around with the angle of the photos and i took more care about laying out photos and thinking about them more in depth. I also always wanted to see a different perspective of the world. That's why i love macro and wildlife/animal photography the most out of all the categories, because you can take pictures and see a whole different world you normally just walk by or don't notice is there. I find it really interesting and it calms me down and makes me happy. I've only recently just got into portrait photography and i'm getting better at it but my true passion has always been with macro/wildlife photography. I've always liked editing too and i did want to do it as a job one time but i changed my mind.
That brings me on to what i studied in school/took for GCSE's... I took; ICT, Photography and Double Business, as i've always been into anything technical. I really enjoyed these lessons but i also loved Science (How the world works and other galaxies out there and life on other planets, and how we evolved and all that has always interested me. I'm kindof like my dad in that way... As he loves history).
I didn't learn much from my photography lessons we just got taught to push a button and researched 90% of the time. Which was annoying but good at the same time because it made me push myself to teach myself everything, and showed me how much i wanted to learn more. I did go to college to do it after my exams but i hated it there. I did really well in my exams and i am so proud of myself for putting all my effort into that and going to after school classes and revising at lunchtimes instead of being with my friends at the time, who were outside having fun. I gave up all of that to get good grades and i'm so glad i did.
On this blog you may be seeing posts of my nephew and niece, my friends Taylor, Rebecca & Katelyn and different adventures and experiences.
