10 Things I Like About Myself:

6. My smile
7. My family
8. My friends
9. My work ethic
10. My positivity - usually!
I am a teenager. Phone constantly clutched in one hand. Smiling sweetly while making up crazy scenarios in my head. I have dreams where my friends become besties with Snookie. I drive my car with the windows down and the music up! I listen to secrets but I don’t repeat them. I use Facebook as a way to share news, I use tumblr as a diary. I don’t wear make-up every day. And most days I spend ten minutes doing my hair - fact! I work as much as I can because in the world I live in, money is everything. But I value my family and friends more then words can explain. But I show them this with my actions. I start a new healthy lifestyle every few weeks, then I slip back into chocolate and ice cream. My life’s mantra and goals change regularly. But every time they change, it is still me. I am changing. I may not be the skinniest or the shortest but I’ve got a smile that can light up the room. And what’s wrong with knowing it?! I have self confidence. I love my body, my personality and my thoughts. I am me. I am a teenager.
Totally freaking out right now!!!!
The internet is a strange and beautiful thing…
I just bought my ticket to see Les Mis in London at the end of August!!
Dear God my life will be one step closer to completion…
I loveeeeee lifeeeeee!! Haha :)
The “new tattoo” itch has begun.
FML!!! Its insanity!!!
A midweek break in London really takes it out of you! Looking forward to getting back to my own bed (where I’m not one of 12-15 people sleeping in the same room!) and a shower (honestly I rolled on the deodorant rather then face the queue and/or poor shower conditions - including but not limited to wet floors, no hot water or poor water pressure!) Having said all that I did enjoy staying in a youth hostel in a major capital city. There were people there from all over the world, including France, Italy, Switzerland and the US, as well as my Aussie companion and I.
It was a fantastically busy 3 days/2 nights in London. I met my friend Nicole from back home, who had just been in Malta for the past two weeks and who is continuing around Europe and the US solo for the next two and a half months! She met me in Euston train station as I got off my train from Manchester, and proceeded to introduce me to the delights of the underground tube. My first and lasting impression was how hot it is down there! And this was on a windy and drizzly July day of about 20.
Anyways, the next three days consisted heavily of sightseeing, whilst the evenings involved pubs and the theatre. We saw sights such as Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St James’ Park, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Gardens and the Peter Pan statue (after much searching!!), the London Eye, the Royal Albert Hall, Covent Garden and Paddington Station and the Paddington Bear statue.
Our first night we attempted a pub crawl, but only managed two stops before getting distracted by M&M World in Leicester Square! We had a true pub tea at The Three Stags, accompanied by a jug of Pimm’s (^_^) and stopped for an Irish cider at The Imperial. The second night we greatly enjoyed an Aussie Parma (a delicacy the British are missing out on entirely!!) at the Walkabout Bar, an Aussie themed pub that had us grinning with delighted and homely feelings. We then went off to the Lyceum Theatre, because what London trip is complete without a trip to the West End? We were blown away by The Lion King, laughing and crying in turns. Afterwards we returned for post drinks to the Walkabout.
All in all it was a fab getaway. I fell in love with London and can’t wait to return to see and do the things we didn’t manage to squeeze in this time. I have some great memories though, such as hiring and riding bikes in Kensington Gardens and enjoying a real cooked English Breakfast and a lovely British Afternoon Tea.
But as I said, I’m looking forward to a shower and my own bed! Thanks Nicola, you were a great travelling buddy. All the best for the next few months! And the countdown to my return home stands at 69 days :) yay!
