Public Transport


As a British citizen, we have all come across some strange public transport situations. I definitely have within the past month on my bus rides to and from college.

There is one smell that I cannot stand, no matter what. Liquorice. I used to have an allotment with my Dad and whenever fennel started growing, which smells like liquorice, I would refuse to touch it or go near it, in fear of being sick. So when a woman who stank of liquorice sat down next to me at the beginning of my 20 minute bus journey, I was not impressed. I don’t know whether it was just her perfume or that she is addicted to it, but I was internally gagging. I tried breathing through my mouth but nothing could get rid of this smell, that was a horrific journey.


A few days ago, I was waiting at the bus stop and a woman said something to me and I laughed but I didn’t think much of it. When I got on the bus, however, she came and sat next to me, which was okay until she started talking to me. She was asking me about where I go to college and if I party a lot. This woman had crazy white hair and rotting teeth which she clearly doesn’t brush. I must admit, I was feeling very anxious for the entirety of the journey.

When it came to our stop, I rushed off the bus, happy to finally be free. Of course she followed me to where I meet my friends. She asked for the time and then started hysterically laughing about how she always has trouble with the time…BUT THEN the weirdest part…she asked me if I would like some breakfast!! I was really starting to panic then and I politely declined, luckily at that moment my friend came and she left.


Not My Day


This morning was erm, interesting!

I got myself up and dressed and my hair washed and my makeup done (not in that order XD) and I left the house. It was all downhill from there.

My bus was running late, great! So, I waited and waited for it and eventually it arrived. I got on and got comfy when….OH CRAP I LEFT MY NOTEBOOK AT HOME, AND MY MATHS HOMEWORK THAT IS DUE FIRST LESSON IS IN THERE!

The bus had already pulled away when the realisation sunk in, I was screwed. So I had to re-do my maths homework throughout my bus journey, that’s always fun.

Then when I got off my bus where I usually meet my friends, they’d already left me cause I was late so that was brilliant!

I walked off on my own to start the 30 minute walk that I had left to get to college…I got half way there when…


I managed to get to college with 1 minute to spare before my Maths class started.

My morning was very eventful and unlucky, I’m glad that’s over!


Yesterday I had my school leavers prom! It was one of the best nights of my life and I never want to forget it!

I had my hair done (which I’ve never done before):


I did my own makeup:


And my “date” as such, was my best friend:


and he got me a corsage:


After having a lot of pictures taken, we left in our cars for the venue! Only to be greeted upon arrival by a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory themed Prom, with our very own umpalumpa!

Everyone looked so amazing and the night was filled with dancing and photo taking. Plus I ate some candy floss and pizza at some point and I stood in some candy floss that I had to wash off (ew).




There was even a photo booth where we could take crazy pictures with props and things:



It was such a surreal night and it was so lovely to spend our last night all together with my weirdo friends all dressed up!


Time Flies

So apparently I grew up?


From my first day of Primary School, to my last day of Secondary School.

Yesterday I left high school…how am I old enough to leave high school? I still feel like the same, little, 11 year old girl who was terrified of moving to “big school”. Five years down the line and I’m here, leaving the amazing friends that I made as we all go off to different colleges. Everything is changing.


These people are the most wonderful people you could ever imagine and the thought of not seeing them everyday makes me really sad. I’ve spent a whole five years of my life with them and suddenly I’ve got to meet new people and make new first impressions. I won’t lie to you, I’m scared. The concept of college scares me half to death!

My best friends all finished their exams before me and so last friday we all celebrated the end of the exams together. Knowing that we’re going to different college breaks my heart. I love them more than anything! They also know how weird I am, and I dont want to scare people off at college with my weirdness that they’re not used to!

I guess I’m just nervous for the future and the responsibility that lies ahead. But, I have a whole three months off for summer and I’m going to make the most of it! Wish me luck!

Old Pop Music

Recently, it has dawned on me that I’m growing up. My exams start in three weeks and then once they’re over, I will have left school and off to college I go. Am I scared? Yes. Am I excited? Yes. Am I sad to leave my childhood behind? YES!

I have been blissfully reminicising more often than not by listening to theme tunes of old tv shows I used to watch, such as Hannah Montana, That’s So Raven, Zoey 101, Drake and Josh etc. And I have been listening to old songs from my childhood.

I even made a playlist on YouTube of all my favourite songs over the years and I’m surprised at how well I still know the lyrics to all the songs. I was so proud when I put on “Slim Shady” by Eminem and I still know every single word by heart!

“Since You’ve Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson has been a winner for me recently, and I’ve decided that it’s one of the best songs to sing at the top of your voice when you’re home alone, along side “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” by Fall Out Boy and “Mr Brightside” by The Killers.

I feel like I’ve fallen in a worm hole back to 2008 throughout the past month or so, but I love it and I truely am sad to depart from my childhood. Also, responsibilities are at the end of the tunnel and they’re are scary!
