Most eventful year of my life

2012 for me, has been the most scariest, busiest and eventful year of my life so far. I cant even comprehend everything what has happened. And I don't mean little things, serious life changes have happened. 

I left school. Which to me always seemed a very long far away. But no, it actually happened. The thought that I am never going back to do them lessons over again, I mean wow. Its scary. I wouldn't really say I miss it. I certainly don't miss the people. But I have started a new chapter in my life now.

Ive started college. Well A-Levels. The thought of going to college honestly used to render me petrified. And I cant believe how quick of a change its been for me! Ive settled in so quickly its surprising. I have never knew what I wanted to do with my life, so making this decision didn't come naturally to me, I ended up picking A Levels in history, sociology and literature. It was so scary when I first started, the endless interviews and open days, but I've gone through it now. And got my place. Although I seriously didn't think A Levels would be this hard. I mean it, they are super duper hard work.

I got a job. Starting my job was the scariest thing Ive done ever. It was absolutely petrifying. The application process and then the interview. I was so nervous for my interview honestly. But I had prepared pretty well, it wasn't as bad as I thought. But I still haven't settled in fully. And its the worse. Starting a job is probably the scariest thing anyone ever does in their entire life. Okay I know it isn't some kind of mega boosting career job, but still. My first day I was so frightened, got really bad stomach ache, and still did 2 months after. But all in all I am so proud of myself for going with it, and just trying to be confident with it. 

I completed my GSCES and got my results. From the day I started year 11 I was always bricking it for results day, and it came closer and closer. Waiting outside rendered me speechless, but I got them. After months and months of revising everything ended. I wouldn't say I did as good as I wanted to, but I didn't do worse.

Well Prom happened too. I never knew if I was going to go or not. I didn't get my dress until like May and it was on the 4th of July, so we had an independence day theme (cheesy or what) But honestly so far in my life it has been the best day/night I have ever had. So fun! 

Okay maybe all these things sound quite little. But they all happened in 1 year. 365 days. So much change has happened. 2012, the most eventful year of my life it shall be know as.
Happy New Year everyone, 
love me.

Sometimes (sometimes) having a job has its positives

Since I did LOADS of overtime at christmas. I thought I would go to Meadowhall and just treat myself. Ive always been pretty tight with money. Only buying stuff I really really liked it. But I am learning to simply buy something if I want it or like it. It wasnt too busy, although I seriously didnt think I would spend over 5 hours there. Deary me...

So, I bought some stuff from loads of shops. Topshop, River Island, LUSH, Primark, MAC, Urban Outfitters, H&M etc. I spent £24.00 in MAC, and I seriously didnt think it would come to that much! I needed some brush cleanser for my make up brushes and some concealer (pro long wear) Then in h&m I bought the 3 tops, and the lovely necklace (I seen this necklace and literally fell in love I simply had to buy it) Nail varnish from Topshop in Zodiac 101 (and also some strawberry flavoured poppets) The jewellery sale in River Island seriously was HEAVEN! Ive always preferred to buy jewellery rather than clothes and its so bad. Have like a million rings and stuff and I end up wearing the same clothes :( But anyway, Ive loved the finger top rings for ages and seen this one for £1 so I couldnt not really. I would have preferred silver though, and I also picked up a necklace with a sun on the end for £1. For £2, you really cant go wrong! 

Urban Outfitters, my baby. I lost my thumb ring ages ago, and I found it here again for half price, and the last one! It was fate. And also the other rings I ordered on Christmas Day arrived (little finger ring and another thumb rings) I have an obsession with rings if you haven't gathered. From Lush I bought a big bottle of the Eau Roma Water, because I dont go very often and I love the spray. And also the Twilight bath bomb. Its such a shame they are so expensive :(

Happy New Year! Love, me.
