April music playlist 2015

Hey guys,

Yes, I am still alive, but I did say I'd be popping in every once in a while to say hello and of course to give you a short update on my life. There is only one bad thing occurring in my life right now. As i'm sure every other sixteen year old is experiencing, exam induced stressed. I actually had to miss my first two lessons of school last Wednesday because I was stressing out soo much I actually began to feel soo sick. Anywhoo moving on from that, one key component in both keeping me sane and helping me to revise is my revision playlist. Most of the time I listen to classical music because it helps me get to a point of focus faster, but because I am also an art student and about 100% of it coursework, I also need some uplifting songs to get me pumped up whilst I'm working. There are soo many songs in my playlist, the other day I listened to 8 hours worth of music from my playlist, but to save you the hassle of endless scrolling, I decided to pick out my favourite songs from the playlist to share with you. Listed below:


  • Midnight kiss 


  • Flaws

Fall out boy

  • Uma Therma
  • The kids aren't alright
  • Centuries

Arctic monkeys
  • Do i wanna know
Foster the people
  • Pumped up kicks
The Kooks
  • Bad habit
Ed Sheeran
  • Bloodstream
Sir Sly
  • Inferno
Zella day
  • Hypnotic
Twenty one Pilots
  • Car radio
  • Fire Meet Gasoline
The Black Keys
  • Tighten Up
The Wombats
  • Let's dance to joy division
P.s.if you cant to listen to a calm playlist (in my opinion) you can check out this playlist I listen to on 8 tracks there is also a link to my YouTube playlist if you like some of these songs and want to check it out

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

10 things I love

Hey guys,

On a much MUCH happier not to my last post, one thing that never fails to cheer me up is reading other peoples blogs (so if you are reading this and just happen to be a proud owner of a blog, feel free to drop your link in the comment box below). One blog I happened to browse upon was +Another Teen . She too -made evident in her blog title- is a teen blogger and what I love the most about her posts are how relatable she is. I find myself sitting there going "yeah, I know what you mean".

Moving on, so I was browsing her blog and was inspired to make a '10 things I love' post, so without further ado (I think that's the phrase, correct me if I used it wrong), here is my list:

Holidays and weekends- yessssssssssss! my ultimate. My life. My love. There is nothing better than enjoying a well deserved break after months or days of school

Music- Some songs just speak to your soul

Youtube- There is no better way to waste time than on Youtube. I really do find it crazy how all these things -twitter, YouTube, vine, instagram- were not around a couple of years ago and now you can have a career out of it and nearly everyone is so involved in it

Blogging- I know, I know. How can you love something you keep forgetting to do? Well, I didn't say I was good at it, but blogging is another form of escapism -not that my life sucks or anything ahah- but sometimes it's good to just get lost in your words and thoughts. As corny or cheesy as this may sound (I hope if any of my friends are reading this they don't hold it against me later on) whilst I am typing a new post, I actually feel like I am talking to someone. When I first started blogging I thought the idea of it was mental, because you can't see the person reading your post and they don't even comment back, but now it's a little different. I know that people at least get to see what I think and know how I feel. Even if they don't care, it's still a relief.

Family- Now as crazy and perhaps even annoying as my family is, I love them to bits and wouldn't trade them for anything ahaha. I'm pretty sure an outsider looking in would find us all to be complete nutjobs

Vacations- As similar as this is to a 'holiday' to me, a vacation is more than just time off work or school, it's when you get the chance to travel during those breaks and explore new areas in the world

SPORTS- now, you may or may not notice that this is the only point I have written in bold. SPORTS. whether it's table tennis or Netball I love pretty much every sport (apart from long distance running *cringe* I have bad memories about that) I this is because I happen to be a very competitive person, so any chance I get to win or beat someone in something, I'll be there.

Like anotherteenontheweb mentioned No homework- There is nothing better than going home after a stressful day of school knowing that you have nothing due the next day

MUJI-  the stationary this shop provides is UNREAL. I mean, yes. The products are very minimalistic, but that's what I love the most about it -although I think after having my friend buy me The Art Of War and considering the fact that I own a chinese designed mirror- my friends are starting to think that I want to be asaian (did anyone else watch the Bring It On movie where they were using the book 'The Art Of War' to defeat the rival squad?? no? was it just me? Was I the only human inspired by that?)

Skateboarding- Despite the fact that I only do this approximately once every three months (not by choice, I'm still an amateur so I don't feel comfortable going out and practising by myself and the only friends of mine that own a skateboard are currently too into revising to take a break and skate with me, so hopefully I'll get more board action in summer)

P.s. Releasing two posts in the same day? Who kidnapped me and forced me to write this? ahaha I'm not making any promises, but I am trying to make up for my recent silence

P.p.s. Yes! the Someecards are back! I'm not sure whether you missed them or not, but it just cheers me up sifting through them on google and sharing the ones that make me laugh

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.
-Hans Selye

Strained. Stressed. Sad

Hey guys,

As most of you should know, that is if you live in London, I have been on Easter break for just over a week now. 
According to our teachers and parents, this is the time for us to "really make a difference with our education and revise as hard as we can" -but "it is also very important that we rest". 
This is  a lie. 
I don't mean to rant on and on about how annoyed and stressed out I am because the truth is -I'm not the only one feeling like this. Half of you currently reading this are most likely sharing my frustration. 
I've been at home a week. 
A whole week. 
In this 'week' I have achieved nothing in my life. 
Now this isn't just me being "lazy" or "procrastinating" I think I have a problem. 
At first I thought I was just being the same old me -forgetting to do things or feeling too tired to leave my house and do something productive, even too lazy to pick up my laptop and post for you guys- but it's dawned on me that what I have is something more. 
I'm not sure if there is even some sort of scientific explanation for it, but my  brain is going into full out panic explosion mode and I don't know how to handle it. I have major school related stress; I can't sleep at night (literally. Almost every night this week I have been laying awake in bed, feeling sleepy but not able to fall asleep. Does that mean I have insomnia??); I don't eat as much as I used to -all i ate yesterday were two slices of toast and a bowl of oats; I also can't focus long enough to get any revision work done.
I was actually considering abandoning my blog until the end of exams -when hopefully I'll feel free and happy again- but today I was speaking to my mum and it dawned on me that the best way to deal with what I am feeling is just to share and get over it with you guys.

Sorry for going off like that, but if you are anyone experiencing the same things, one thing that is helping me is just talking to my mum -or if you don't want to do that (talk to your mum ahah not mine) then you could just look at inspirational quotes. As sad as it sounds, they always gets me fired up.

Now that I think about it...
This post went from 1 to 100 in like two sentences -sorry about that.
Does anyone else get that feeling that they have like a million things to do, but end up thinking too much they end up doing nothing?

Anyway, I've got another quote and picture for you all,

There's a lot of stress out there, and to handle it, you just need to believe in yourself; always go back to the person that you know you are, and don't let anybody tell you any different, because everyone's special and everyone's awesome.
