I’m going to have a break

As you can see from the title, I am going to have a break for an indefinite period of time. This is due to the fact that I haven’t had the time nor inspiration to post anything creative recently. I also want to relax without any pressures of posting as well as that my phone is currently not with me as it has gone for repairs as the phone screen went black last Sunday.  

I hope you understand and I hope to see you again soon when I post next (after my break)

STORYTIME: THE TIME I ALMOST THREW A CHAIR AT A BOY IN MY FRENCH CLASS AND GOT EXCLUDED FROM SCHOOL (ALBEIT INTERNALLY)

*Disclaimer: This is 100% true. I wouldn’t want to lie even if I wanted to*

So…

This started in my Tuesday ICT class where this kid was being too noisy so I couldn’t concentrate at all. I got really annoyed so obviously I chased him arhound the classroom much to the displeasure of my ICT teacher who didn’t like me in the first place (within good reason as I did get told off for playing games in his class a lot)

After that ICT class finished I thought that it was a good idea to chase the boy all the way to my French class and surprisingly I didn’t get caught running or anything.

When I got near the French class, he slammed the door and that tipped me over the edge so I simply just went into my French class and lifted up a chair to throw it at him.

Before I threw the chair, the teacher told me to put it down and told me to leave so I could calm down so I didn’t and up going back to class until after lunch where it was all ok until the end of class.

I got held up by my teacher due to the fact that she was worried that I would try to fight the boy, which I fully appreciate. I also found out that I was going to also get a behaviour referral form for something like threatening behaviour to a student (the boy also did for provoking me). This was honestly when I thought that I was going to get an external exclusion. This was really bad for me as I wasn’t the worst student until the end of term 4, where I got numerous behaviour comments and only two detentions for my misbehaviour in school.

Two days later on the Thursday afternoon I found out that both me and the boy were to get a day in internal exclusion. As we had made up on that day, I told him that I got an internal exclusion and said that he also had got one before any teachers told him.

So… the Friday after I want into internal exclusion for aggressive confrontation and it went well (That’s what the behaviour contract said at least). I was supposed to be in behaviour contract for a week after but as it was near to the end of the year and we had an activity week during the last week and a day so I only had to be on behaviour contract for one day.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to see you again soon when I post next.

P.S: I was an immature person in the end of Y10 and the beginning of Y11 but I matured after that time and haven’t got into trouble since apart from once because I didn’t do PE.

The Misconceptions of the ‘Perfect’ Life and Perfection.

img-thing

What does perfect even mean???

To fuel my curiousness of finding out the definition of ‘perfect’, I decided to search for it on the good ol’ trusty Google. I discovered that the term ‘perfect’ was in fact definable.

Here is the dictionary definition of perfect.

Screen-shot-2013-11-27-at-5.41.13-AM

The definitions of perfect vary by context but they all refer to the same idealism, the same unrealistic idealism.

Personally, I feel that perfection is completely and utterly subjective and is subject to one’s opinion. I feel that the term perfect is undefinable as everything and everyone is perfect in some way that is unique to that person or thing.

There is this massive pressure to be perfect, to have a perfect life and all that. It is completely and utter bullshit and completely unrealistic.

The media especially has placed a significant amount of pressure on people through both traditional media and modern media, notably due to the dramatic rise of online and social media.

There is something about Photoshopping the shit out of someone to make them look like what seems to be perfect that annoys the hell out of me. I’m not going into it too much as I don’t really feel like it but I do have really strong opinions about the matter.

This pressure to be perfect and to have a perfect life is something that can really have detrimental effects on peoples health, development, feelings, confidence and self esteem. This is really clearly the case when it comes to the young and impressionable people. They see these people looking perfect and having perfect lives and either feel like they are not perfect because they are not like them or feel like their life isn’t perfect because it isn’t the lifestyle that these well-known high profile people have.

As in the words of Hannah Montana, “Nobodys Perfect”

Let’s Talk: #CountdownTo18 

I turn 18 on May 19th (Which is in under a week when this is being posted, I am actually writing this on May 4th for convenience). I thought that I will share with you some of the things that I am most looking forward to when I turn 18. Lets Go.

Turning 18 is a massive deal in the UK and even though there are some things that we are allowed to do at 16 and 17, there are a lot of things that you can do at 18 that you couldn’t do before

Things I’m Looking Forward to When I Turn 18

  1. Something that is at the top of literally everyone’s list (Or almost everyone’s list) is that it is legal to buy and consume alcohol (You could have some alcohol with a meal at 16 and you could have some at home at an earlier age but at 18, it is officially legal to purchase and consume alcohol)
  2. The Vote (My 18th birthday lies before the snap general election on June 8th, which is absolutely amazing). I have been looking into everything in regards to the election and I have visited Polling Stations on a number of occasions with my dad. This is my first chance to actually be allowed to make my own democratic decision on such a huge scale. I am so happy that I will have a say on such a huge matter like the general election as I can be involved in changing the shape of the country instead of everyone making the decisions and all I could do was spectate.
  3. Parental consent no longer necessary as I will be a legal adult
  4. I can buy fireworks
  5. I am allowed to watch 18-Rated Movies at the cinema.
  6. I am allowed to go in the 18+ section of arcades
  7. I can get a tattoo if I want to
  8. I can open a proper bank account

A Note To 2016

​2016… You were so many things to be honest. You were good, bad, happy, saw, exiting, boring, eventful, suprising, weird, cringy and embarassing but I loved you anyway. 2016, the year of suprises, a lot of deaths and some of the weirdest pop culture trends that I have seen.

On a final note… you come and gone so quickly. Well… 2017 is around the corner and I have no idea what it will be like or what will happen but if 2016 is anything to go by I should expect the unexpected and unpredictable. That is the lesson that 2016 has told me as the weirdest things do happen.

Even though I am saying goodbye to you 2016, I will hold onto the memories for the rest of my life as you were a good year and will embrace the new chapters that 2017 will bring me.

I hope you enjoyed this weird note and I hope to see you again soon when I post next.

2015

Wow… We are officially in 2016 and 2015 went too quickly for my liking. I thought what better way to start 2016 by reminiscing on the past year and just a few of the highlights of the year.

I need to start with school as I passed all my GCSE exams in the summer and I was even in the local newspaper because of my good results. Also, I started 6th form in September and I am studying Maths, Law, IT and French now which I am really enjoying at the moment. Finally, to top it all off I got the award for KS4 progress at my secondary schools awards evening in December.

Finally, the highlights outside of school was that I went to Dubai with my mum and it was absolutely amazing and it was the best holiday in my life, I done NCS In the summer which was one of the greatest experiences as I done things that I had never done before, went out of my comfort zone, stayed away from home, ate foods that I didn’t know who cooked them for most of the time, cooked myself, camped, be more independent, live without life’s little luxuries (WIFI and signal were hard to find and some other things were weird not to have), made a difference in the local community and made some amazing friends to top it all off. Finally, I turned 16.

Hope you enjoyed this post and I will hopefully see you again when I post next.
