The Summer


The summer holidays. The time when you relax in the sun while drinking an exotic drink on the beach... (I didn't actually do that).


My Summer mainly just consisted of me not doing much. I really wanted to just chill out and take a break from all of the work I've been doing at school. It kinda sucks because I know after this holiday I'll just be back at school again, doing the same old work I was doing a few weeks ago but instead having to do more of the work and having to do do extra revision. It just sucks. It really does.

To be honest, I don't want this Summer to end. I could happily let it go on for another few weeks. I mean... I love the fact I can go to bed at 1 in the morning and wake up at 11. I'm not the sort of person that likes getting up at 6 in the morning and I think it's crazy that people actually like that and wake up at 6 in the morning because they WANT to, not because they HAVE to. On a school morning, I set my alarm for half 6 but I end up getting up at 7 or later. I don't know how. I just do. It's like I automatically press the alarm stop button then go back to sleep or something.

The Summer Holidays is nearly over. There's just a week left. I am sitting here now wondering where all the days went. Where did they go? Did they just vanish into some sort of dimension in a time warp? I doubt it. The thing is with holidays they go too fast. You don't have enough time to know what you've done with all the days. It all just seems to be a blur of loads of different things to me.

The Summer holidays is really just a time to relax and that is what I'm doing. I am relaxing and just making the most of the break. Soon I will have my head stuck in some lousy text book, making notes as if my life depends on it. That's why I am making the most of this rather free, 'not a care in the world' time of year.


I hope you are also making the most of the Summer Holidays... You don't want to look back on the Summer and think 'what a waste of time'.


I will be blogging again soon.

Liebster Award



I was recently nominated for a Liebster award. When I saw the comment on my blog I thought 'I've been nominated for an award?! ME!?!?! AN AWARD!?!?!'. I looked it up because I didn't have a clue what this Liebster Award thing was. Then I realized it wasn't really an award at all but something like a 'chain letter' passed on from blogger to blogger in order to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them into the blogospheare. I have accepted this award as I guess it seems like a nice gesture.

How this Liebster Award thing works: 
1.You receive a comment on your blog saying 'you have been nominated for a liebster award' (or something along those lines) from the blogger that nominated you.
2. You then thank the blogger that nominated you on you on a blog post and link back to their blog. You add a Liebster award badge picture on your post.
3. The person that nominated you may have prepared 11 questions for you to answer on their blog post (like a Q&A). You can either answer these 11 questions on the blog post or not.
4. Nominate 5- 11 blogs that haven't got a lot of followers to receive the award.
5. Inform them of their nomination by leaving a comment on one of their blog posts.

So... (I think I'm doing this right). I would like to thank LucyLikesPineapple for nominating me. She's got a pretty cool blog and you can find her blog here: www.lucylikespineapple.blogspot.co.uk 

I decided not to answer the questions because I doubt anyone will want to know my answer to the questions or find them very interesting... (sorry!).

So... Who in the world do I even nominate?!!!?!?!?
(I am now going to check out some blogs...)

I have gone and checked out some blogs and have decided to nominate bloggers who I think deserve more recognition...
I nominate:
www.cluelessden.blogspot.co.uk
www.aheroineintraining.blogspot.co.uk
www.ellaelizabeth.co.uk
www.perksofbeingreaders.blogspot.co.uk
www.cittaancorata.blogspot.co.uk
www.changingperspectivesblog.blogspot.co.uk

If you want, you can answer the questions below but I am not going to make you answer them!

1. What made you want to start blogging?
2. What do you like about blogging?
3. Do you think your personality and style is reflected through the way you blog?
4. How can you see yourself and your blog doing in 5 years?
5. What is one good thing about you?
6. What is one bad thing about you?
7. How would you describe yourself in one word?
8. If you could change one thing in the world, what would you change?
9. Where is your favorite place on earth?
10. If you could meet anyone in the world (from the past or present), who would you meet?
11. If you could go back in time, where and what time would you go to?

First actual post!- Change.


EJ's back... back again...EJ's back... tell a friend...

Yes! I am back! I left the blog before I even got started didn't I? Well, I apologize for that rubbish start... I am now willing to get blogging again. SO! LETS GET BLOOGGGIIING!!


First actual post!


The other day I bumped into an old friend in the high street. It was pretty awkward actually because we hadn't seen each other for THREE WHOLE YEARS. I was in a group of four in middle school- we were all best buds and this girl I bumped into was one of the group of four. Another member of the old group I still see (we meet up quite frequently actually) and the other girl...well... lets just say she's changed.


So, me and my old buddy, (who I hadn't seen in 3 years), started to speak about how we were doing at school and stuff and if we had seen any of the others in the old group and we spoke about how much the group member has changed... She has changed A LOT. It's scary how much someone can change. One minute she was the sweet, kind girl working hard in class... The next she's all about boys and boobs and has a modelling job with some agency.


It seems the old friend I bumped into hasn't changed much. They haven't actually changed at all. They are still the funny, kind, cheerful person I sat next to in registration. So it seems like three of us out of the old group haven't changed in 3 years. The other group member who I still see and meet up with is still the same lovely person and they haven't really grown in 3 years either.


I don't think I have changed. Well... I definitely think I am less childish now... I've stopped running around the school corridors shouting 'BOGIES!'. That's for sure. But I still have the odd childish moment...


But yeah, it is scary how someone can change SO MUCH and it's quite funny to think that I haven't really changed and that the other two haven't really changed... Old group member 4 has gone out ahead of me and the other two old members. Were still stuck in the same old place while she's crossed the finish line and turned into someone different. She's actually way out of our league now. Me and the other two are happy with a nice group of friends while Group member 4 has gone and got herself tonnes of friends... and most probably had tonnes of boyfriends. I wouldn't like that though. It just seems too fake. I doubt most of her friends are actually 'real' friends.


I'm happy with how I am. I'm actually glad I haven't changed much. I liked the same person I was 3 years ago and I'm glad I haven't gone off into a different person like group member 4 has.


Anyway. See you soon peeps, I'm getting the hang of this blogging thing!
