Life's stressful, I get it. There are tons of things in today's society that puts a weight on our shoulders, and sometimes it feels like something has come and sucked all the energy out of us (dirty minded people, keep it in please), but it's true. Even as a teenager and a college student, I'm under pressure (if you started singing under pressure, we can be friends), but that's a whole 'nother blog post (coming soon, plug, plug). So if we're being real (honest & loyal lol) motivation is probably one of the biggest setbacks in our lives, because if our motivation scale is down to a 1, possibly lower, we're never going to get the things done that we should, and this could create a whole other problem, which could set us back even further. Picture this, you're so unmotivated that you've ended up in your bed, eating crap, binging Kardashians and not getting up for anything unless you're desperate for the toilet. Sounds like the dream, r...
Let's be honest, by the time we were nearing the end of year 11, and them doors to the 10 week summer holiday started to open, we all thought that we would be entering a new type of education where we would love the subjects that we're doing (because we got to bloody choose them) and that we'd be more relaxed and not have to get up 'till after 10 every day. Oh how wrong we were. A note to all current year 11s who have this mindset...change it, and quick. Yes I'm in college only 4 days a week, and yes there is one day where I don't start until 11:30, but overshadowing all of that is the amount of work given and the pace at which the teachers (lecturers if you wanna be fancy) teach. So for everyone nearing their GCSEs, and applying for college, here are 4 things that I've learnt since starting and what I think you should know. It's Harder Than Expected Like I explained earlier, we all get that feeling that we're going to be a lot more...
3 and a half months and counting (not to scare you or anything) until GCSE exam season begins. Don't worry, I know the feeling, this time last year I was absolutely crapping myself at the thought of exams and how there was no hope in hell that I'd get the grades I needed. I'm not the brightest bulb in the box to say the least, but I gave it my best shot, and you know what, I did way better than what I thought I was going to do, and got the grades I needed to carry on into college.  So if I can do it, basically anyone can. Anyway, as it's only been about half a year since I went through this hell myself, I've decided to gather 5 simple ways to prepare yourself for the period of time where your trying so hard not to curl up into a ball and have some sort of meltdown (we've all been there). 5. Talk To Your Teachers About What Is Most Likely To Come Up Teachers don't know the ins and outs of EVERY exam paper but they will have a clear idea of...
Music is such a big part of our everyday lives. Whether your one for shakin' your ass or ballin' your eyes out, it can have such a huge impact on people and really shape themselves and their lives. I LOVE music, I'm obsessed, I listen to it everyday without a doubt, and is that person that will stay up 'till midnight if one of my fave artists is about to release a new record. I'm also that person that will check the 'New Music Friday' playlist (every Friday, never forgetting) on Spotify and see what new tunes I can find.  So that's why I'm going to start a new monthly series where I pick my fave singles and/or albums of the previous month, and well, share them with you alllll. Firstly, who remembers Fleur East and her ABSOLUTE TUNE 'Sax'?! Course you do! (if not, where have you been) Even though it was released just over 3 years ago, it is still popular today. Such a classic. Anyway, she's back! 4th Jan was the day of Fle...
