Day Out in Brighton


I went on a uni visit to Brighton recently and at lunch time me and my mum drove to the beach which, although wasn't sandy, was comfortable to sit on and we admired the pier and it was really cool to be there.

This beautiful Cathedral we saw when we were driving through Brighton and it looked so fancy and grand.



I loved the town and we walked past so many little cute shops but we didn't have a lot of time so we mostly just sat on the beach and ate our sandwiches!  Therefore I need to go again because it is so picturesque.


Thanks for reading!

Thought For the Day: Aspirations


Yesterday I travelled to London for a University fair.  On the way there me and my friend were discussing how we don't really feel ready for uni and how so much has changed within a year.  This time last year I was doing my GCSE's and now I have done my AS levels which to me is a massive leap and this year has gone by super quick.  I think it is very difficult to know what you want to do when you are older and that for many people is the case.  I have always had a general idea of what I wanted to do and it has always been on a similar path; when I was about 10 I really wanted to be an author and I would write short stories and massive chapters but I would never finish them.  At the age of about 12 I really wanted to work in a magazine because I had seen the glamorous lifestyles in films and really wanted to go to New York.  To this day that is still a dream and something I will do but for now I have to be realistic with goals and take things step by step.

There are a few things which I would like to achieve by this time next year and on this exact day I will write an updated one to see how far I have come.  So here are my ambitions for the future.


Blog more
I find blogging therapeutic, however I am not able to always find time or I have bloggers block.  I find blogging an enjoyable experience and something I want to be proud of when published, so I would rather have a few posts that I feel amazing about than loads that I feel are okay but I'm doing it for the sake of it.  It is not something that can be forced or should be for that matter but I feel as though due to exams and things I haven't found time to do so but I will try to upload more posts.

Sleep more
This is a big factor for me and I find that if I go to bed late (which is every night oops...) I wake up with the darkest under eye bags you have ever seen so I will attempt to sleep more especially around school/exam time when stress levels are high.

Stress less
I stress A LOT.  It is something that is unnecessary most of the time like doing the most simplest of things and I get nervous and work myself up when really, it is not that bigger of a deal.  So future me, STOP STRESSING.

   Be more confident
I worry a lot about a ton of different things and normally I feel like I can't ask questions or speak to a large group of people because I get really nervous but I'm going to try and be brave.

Push myself
I am going to try and push myself at least once a month to do something I wouldn't ordinarily do and go a little bit outside my comfort zone whether that be in terms of wearing something I wouldn't normally, or go somewhere I wouldn't go if I wasn't trying to push myself because I think it will open me up to new experiences.

What are your goals for next year?
