Relaxing in the life of me.

My life can seem pretty hectic at times, college 3 days a week and placement 2 days a week. And revision on top nd that. Its no different compared to other teenagers lives. In fact, compared to some its pretty easy. However, no matter how easy or hard life is, I believe everyone needs time to just relax and chill for a while. I also know some people find relaxing quite hard- my mum being one of those people.

Here are a few of my favourite ways:

Reading- I love a really good read, and once I get addicted to a book, I can't put it down. My current book is Water For Elephants, its amazing! I've not yet seen the film though.

Watching a film- A good film will always help relax. I watched Sweeny Todd recently with my fiance and I loved it, needless to say some eye candy will always help too.

Writing- Writing is one of my passions. I can write about very meaningful, hard times in my life and feel a lot better for it.

Music- Listening to my favourite music too, it does help that I love a lot of pop, cheesy music too.

Having some silent time- This is my favourite way to relax, and as silly as it sounds, Im at my most relaxed after it. Sitting on my bed, reading a magazine with no tv, or music. Its just bliss!

I hope yous have learnt a little more about me and the ways I find easy to do to help me relax.

Cya next time,

What's new?

Thought I would update you lot with what's going on in my life right now.

College nabs and exams seem to be taken over tbh, but not long til my last day of this college course- roll on 17th June! I seriously have met some amazing people on the course this year, and ones I hope to stay in touch with.
Im not entirely sure what my next steps are- I've taken such a weird turn in my career recently, I've been looking forward to my next course NC in Media Production. That was until I emailed a company about a seeing if I could work with them etc, they've been back in touch with me asking for details about me etc, and saying they may be able to take me on. However, this job would be working with children, and I seriously want it so bad!
Why is life so blaming confusing when you least want it to be? I know no one never wants a confusing life, but at times you can appreciate more than others surely?!

Another thing happening right now is Summer! It don't feel like it tho, trust me! We've had hurricane like winds recently, and April showers yet its about blaming June!? Im starting to wonder if I can count on the weather being decent for my first wedding ever, and if my outfit will be appropriate in any weather- oh yeah wait, I've not picked it yet!?

Options and mistakes

This post is about why I picked the childcare course Im on the now, it is one of my biggest regrets in life, as I've never wanted to work with children, but it was my only option which would allow me to leave school.

I was sat in maths one afternoon, our teacher was off yet again, and the supply we had was the old grandad type. Nice, but far too soft.

I wanted to leave school at the end of 4th year, but my mum didn't agree. I eventually decided I would do my last year, but as soon as that year started I knew it wasn't for me. I had no interest in school, knowing I wanted to leave.

That afternoon, my friend had said she had been accepted on her course that she'd applied for but there were still places on it. I knew this would be my only way out, so that lesson I printed of an application form and filled it in. Not long after I got a letter saying I had been accepted on an unconditional offer. I knew I didn't want to do childcare but can honestly say as much of a mistake I made, its been one heck of an experience.

I no longer feel stupid with only average grades, now I work harder and get above average, I am not miss brainy but I work hard for it, and the results are showing it. However, I've applied for a completely different course next year, with something I want to do.

My advice though, is don't apply for a course, just because a friends on it. It will do you know benefits. Just because you won't know anyone on the course doesn't mean you won't fit in. :)
