Reflection of my 'life'.

So as it is now 2014 I keep saying to myself "jesus, I'm 18 this year" and that's pretty scary to think. I thought i'd reflect on this scary feeling and reminisce on all of the positive things I have achieved in my life so far. When I say so far I probably will only mention from my high school years because anything before that (apart from the fact I got picked to be on the tag rugby team in year 6 and we won a tournament and being the least active person ever this is a huge achievement) didn't really count. 

Meeting Ellis and falling in love
At the end of 2012 I was blessed to have the opportunity to meet Ellis who has become the biggest part of my life. We have experienced so much together within just over a year. He's let me experience 3 holidays with him and his family last year, we've been to Leeds Fest together. I've met somebody who is literally like the person of my dreams, he plays the drums, wants tattoos, grows a good beard, has nice arms and a good back, he doesn't mind my feet or when I have no make up on. He's like my best friend and my boyfriend mixed into one. I never thought I'd meet someone that I'd be able to be so open with. He has let me experience every aspect of being in love and a feeling that I have never felt in my life before and I think that's what's so special about us. I'm just excited for what the future holds now.

Surving high school
This is something that you're probably thinking "what??that's pretty easy", but it wasn't for me. I kicked up a stir in year 7 and somehow got the entire population of the upper years to hate me - bad move. This resulted in me getting teased a lot but I actually managed to survive it -woo hoo. I'm also went to an all girls school which added to the bitchyness. It was a hard time for me and not many people knew but it gradually got better and I made it. 

13 years old days...


Passing my GCSEs
Relating to high school I also managed to not fail my GCSEs which I think is a miracle as I rarely did my homework and always seemed to 'lose my work'. Plus I didn't start revising until like two weeks before the exams unlike everybody else so I thought I was doomed. 

Leaving high school :(


New family
I'm lucky to have a great family and my mum, sisters and I are extremely close so when my sister Kimmy became pregnant in 2010 and gave birth to my first nephew, Harry,  I was absolutely over the moon. He is the most abusive and cheekiest little boy in the world but I wouldn't change him for the world. He knows how to cheer me up and I'm so happy that my sister managed to reproduce someone so amazing. Last June she also had another baby and I got my first niece, Grace, who is adorable and always has a cheeky grin on her face. In November, my other sister Sami had a baby girl, Ella, and it was a very stressful time because she was early but to see how happy we all are now was worth the amount of stress it took. I'm so happy to have such cute additions to my family and I love them all so much.

Prom
Although it wasn't as planned as I dreamed it would be it was still amazing. I got my dress and shoes last minute and they definitely weren't as fancy and expensive as everybody elses but they were just right for me. I loved getting all dressed up, going to a fancy hotel, dancing and going to the after party and even if you think Prom isn't for you, it probably is because it's a great way to say goodbye to everybody from school who you're not going to see again.

Festivals
Thanks to my mother hen (shout out to Maddie), I've been to Leeds Festival 4 times since I was 13 - that's cool (to me anyway). I actually LOVE them. I love getting drunk and dancing around to bands with my mum, Ellis, my friends... The festival has introduced me into bands that I would never have heard of before and I've experienced something that really does make me happy (then sad when its over). If you've never experienced one then just go. The price is worth it. £200 to see 100 of bands? £10 per band? £10 for a band like Foo Fighters? Erm, you're never going to be able to see Foo Fighters for £10 anywhere else so on that note - it's worth it.

Photography
All my life I've loved taking photos. I don't really know why but it's just something fun and interesting. I love colour and I love things. I'm studying it at college now and its so exciting to do and it's developed into something that I'd love to have a career in, especially working with bands or fashion magazines.

These are the main things that have been positive aspects in my life and although I'm going to be old soon I'm happy that I've had a lot of positiveness in it and I'm excited to see what the future holds now. 

Lots of Love
