Trying to cram all of the fun things into a two month period called ‘Summer Holidays’ is much harder than it initially sounds. Sitting in class during a June heat wave you get the idea that this holiday time is never-ending and you will be able to live a whole life in that time; write a book, go on holiday, lose a stone, and possibly even build a house.
But that’s hardly the reality, is it?
For twelve years I have done this. I would start the summer with a list of brilliant things to do. And yes, I WAS going to do them. However, after two weeks of sitting on the sofa watching Titanic and Mamma Mia over and over again, I realise that this is never going to happen. That I am going to once again waste my whole holiday doing absolutely nothing.
So tonight, whilst sitting through Mamma Mia for the fourth time this holiday, I decided that it was going to actually do something. My plan (note: plan, not promise) is to write this blog. I am going to try and post something interesting – or as interesting as possible – every single day until I return to college in September. There will
probably definitely be tears, lots of fun, some photos of what I would call my fashion, and a whole load of rambling. But at least I am going to have fun.
And you wonderful people reading this blog are going to become some of my closest friends. I will literally be sharing my life story with you, and in return all I ask is that you try to enjoy yourselves too; stay out too late, drink too much alcohol, eat that whole chocolate cake, book an extravagantly expensive holiday. And please, if you’d like to, share these experiences with me in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you all.
Best summery and sunny wishes,
