I need some advice me thinks

Does anyone have that friend who you used to be really close to but now it’s all suddenly gone a bit… well, cold?

She has always been my best friend from about year 8 (now I’m in year 11) and now we rarely talk, or can find anything to talk about. If you remember waaayyyy back when, her name is Cobalt, and she is the one I wasn’t sure I could trust anymore. It kinda stresses me out, because I don’t want to loose her altogether, but it doesn’t feel like we really ‘click’ anymore like we used to.

I have spoken to Apricot about this- he doesn’t like her since she started spilling my secrets. I just kinda… I don’t know how I feel. It is so so confusing because she is still classed as my best friend, and it would be shocking to the rest of my friends if they thought that we weren’t getting along. I think that the main problem is that it’s not like we’ve physically fallen out. It’s more like we’ve moved apart.

I don’t know what to do about it. I think maybe that if I just leave it, it will just get worse. I don’t want to loose her, but then again maybe growing apart is for the best? I am just so confused and don’t quite understand what the hell is going on in my life of mine. French controlled assessment on Friday, NCS form in on Friday, Sixth form application in on Friday, History revision in on Friday, History essay in on Friday. Christ almighty I hate Fridays.

I am  confused. Now you are probably confused too. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Moving on up

So I’m trying to write my sixth form application right now and I’m struggling. I’ve just realised that the decisions are going to stop me or help me do what I want to do in the future. Before this point, everyone- from teachers to grandparents- have said ‘oh, you don’t have to know what you want to do yet’ and ‘you can do anything you want’. But now, I am making decisions that will mean that I can’t be an astronomer, or nuclear physicist, or a mathematician. This is scary. I don’t want to grow up yet 😦

All of my year had a day off timetable today to test out all the subjects we couldn’t do at A-level. They all sounded so interesting that I am now like what do I do?!??!?!???

I guess Boy has helped. I was talking to him yesterday about it and he reminded me that really, we don’t have to decide yet. We can change our options up until a week or so after our results.

I guess what I’m most worried about is loosing my friends. I would hate not to be in any lessons with Boy or Apricot or the rest of my close friends. I know that it’s not the end of the world, and we’d still meet up outside of school, but our catchment is so wide that they both live in a different county. It’s pretty ridiculous, but I’m definitely glad that they come here 🙂

So I think the moral of the story here is, if you’re in my position or similar, just take charge of the situation. I will most definitely appreciate my friends more in these coming months, and hopefully get into habits of meeting up more.

Lots of love

Mocking Mondays

Mondays are always a bit soul-sapping, lets be honest. But today was more soul sapping than others. I got my mock results back, and I had biology and maths in the same day.

I got pretty okay results, like mostly As, a few Bs and like 3 A*s. So that was okay.

Over the weekend I bought some new ‘school shoes’ as my other ones broke. I thought that I would bend the rules slightly and go for some metallic blue Dr Martens. I absolutely adore them, they are incredibly snazzy 🙂 – they’re like the colour of bluebottles I’m not usually that outgoing with my fashion choices, so I was kinda nervous going into school.

Some people were really lovely to me about them, commenting on how awesome/ cool/ shiny they were, which made me very happy.

And then my friends Cobalt and Alien Armpit (yes that is a certified colour) commented on them. Saying how they made my feet look huge (in a negative way) and how I would have to wear blue tights all the time, which they hated. I was pretty upset about what they said. I usually have pretty thick skin (a biproduct of being ginger I guess) but the fact that they are meant to be my best friends made it hurt that little bit more.

Biology makes me mad. We have this horrific teacher who fails to prepare for our lessons or to teach us anything. It makes me really mad because she is head of Biology and  I want to take A-Level Biology next year. If I get her, I will complain, and leave the school if I have to. She is that bad. 

Maths is just bad. End of 😀

Lots of things seem to make me mad at the moment. By the way, the boy situation hasn’t got any clearer, if anything it is more confusing than ever. (If you have no idea what I am on about, feel free to read my post ‘A Boy Issue’)

Lots of love

PS. Can we just take a moment for the legend that was David Bowie, and his incredible fashion statements  and basically pioneering pop music. Rest in peace.



New Wanderings Page!

Okay, so a few days ago I mentioned a new thing that I wanted to try out.

Sooooooo, I’ve started my ‘Wanderings’ section!

Whoop whooop (go me for working out how to do it 😉 )

I am so excited by this new page 😀 😀
