Thoughts Writing An Essay

Essays – Aren’t they just the best! (Please note that sarcasm and realise my true hatred for writing essays…) 

Unfortunately, I have several left to write so, to make it slightly more bearable, I thought I’d write my thoughts down as I go! Well, I better get started….

Right, essay – hello, hi *reads what essay is about* nope, okay, see you never and bye

Nope. Nope nope nope NOPE

Why. Are. Essays. A. Thing.

I mean, I could write this but at the same time, now this is just a suggestion, but at the same time, you know,  I could be sleeping? No! Concentrate!

*Mindlessly sings* [EDIT- I was probably singing one of these songs]

Wait, what was I doing? Oh, essay, right

I mean, I could maybe read a few blog posts first? No! Seriously, if I do this now, I actually can enjoy the holidays

Just kidding, I have like 10 essays to write, plus a literal age of revision

*Sigh* I really need to get started….
*Starts Essay*

How long before I scream and give up?

Seriously though, I’ve been set way too much work to do…

I have such a bad headache and homework is not helping! I haven’t even had breakfast yet!
Okay, seeing as I’m on holiday, after I do some work I’m going to go down to my favourite little cafe and get breakfast
Okay, one essay (and a half) done! Revision time…

Nope nope nope I give up, I’m not doing it okay bye

*Skip to after breakfast*

Wow…when I said I wasn’t going to do it, well, I didn’t mean it? But apparently, I did, the revision is still incomplete…

To be fair, I have been productive, I’ve just sent a bunch of important emails!

Ughhhhh, okay I’m gonna be productive now and revise.

Guess who worked out time differences? That’s right, me! For once I actually know what time it is!

Wait do I? We took off at 00:00 (Greece time), it’s a four hour flight but the U.K is two hours behind so we should land at 02:00 (U.K time)? Right?

No, air hostess, I don’t have any rubbish….we just got on the plane?

Yes, I’m in a bad mood, it’s midnight and I’m tired…what do you expect!?

Of course I have to have a child kicking my chair…typical

Okay I’m gonna close the window shutter, I do not want a repeat of the lightning storm incident!

Okay, scrap me knowing time zones, I don’t know what country I’m in- sorry, above – so how am I even meant to know the time!?

Why are the lights on? I want to sleep…its the middle of the night

Why is it so cold?

? At almost one in the morning? Think I’m gonna have to pass

“We appreciate you are tired” – Air Hostess, 2016.

Yes, I am tired so can you not wake me to ask if I want food?

Okay ignore all of the above, I’m hungry now.

Oh so now I’m hungry there’s no food? Thanks for that

I need sleep oh my god

If I eat these sweets will I become hyper?

I’m practically asleep and I have my headphones in yet you still try to talk to me?(Go read this to get that reference!)

Yay for me being confident and not wearing makeup

So happy I didn’t wear makeup (Another related post here)

So many thoughts, so little time – I can’t write them all down

I’m literally picking my phone up every few seconds to write down these thoughts….it’s one AM. The things I do for you guys haha

*proceeds to fall asleep with phone in hand*

Well hello! This is future me editing a post I wrote like a week ago…oops? [Lol okay just thought I’d mention here that this post was actually written like last year] I actually didn’t write any more thoughts down because…well, because I was asleep! 

Woah, how cool would it be if you could write things whilst you were asleep!? I mean- actually, it doesn’t matter…that’s beside the point – Moving On!

Beach Fails

Ahh, beach fails – my favourite thing. After all, what’s better than embarrassing yourself in front of hundreds of people? Water, rocks, seaweed – well, it’s a recipe for disaster! 

Right, so, walking out of the sea. In movies you see a flawless exit, a graceful stroll out the water. Real life? No. Just no. 

I, for one, am way more focused on not falling to think about elegantly flicking my hair. But what if you loose concentration for a second? And don’t notice the seaweed on the rocks in front of you? And then not so gracefully slip and fall. Well, same lol

Of course, you’re only going to make it worse if you try and make it look intentional or something. I mean, it was obviously an accident, so just laugh!
It happened to me in Summer 2016 it hurt not just my pride (pfft, what’s that) but physically injured me. The rock cut through my foot so now I have a lovely scar. Luckily, I wasn’t the only one to slip on that rock, I later watched many others do the exact same thing lol

What about sun beds? And don’t even get me started on the umbrellas by them! (Read  this to know why!)

Then there’s the not-so-fabulous walk in flip flops through the sand. You know the one: waffling around, attempting not to flick sand up and hence looking like a penguin. Flip flops and sand? Nope

What embarrassing things have happened to you at the beach? Let me know in the comments!
As this is posted, I’m either walking my DofE route or dying because I’ve walked too far, so make sure to leave as many comments as possible to cheer me up when I get home! That’s if I survive the walk and the camping and the next walk and ew.

Dear Morning People

Dear Morning People,

How do you do it? Seriously, I need tips. How do you manage to motivate yourself into getting up? How do you manage to trick yourself into thinking getting up is a good idea?

Anyone else feel the same? I’m so not a morning person – the joys of waking up are practically nonexistent. You wanna wake me up early? Just don’t. Well, unless it’s something amazing…say you were gonna take me to another country? On a nice holiday?  Feel free to wake me up. If not? Don’t. You. Dare.

Okay, I lie, I am fully prepared to get up in the morning to be productive so I’ll wake up at 08:00 on weekends. If I’m doing something I enjoy, I’ll wake up. Waking at 06:00 for school? No, just no.
Are you a morning person? Or are you more like me? Leave it in the comments below!

When Not To Talk To Someone

I can’t be the only one who sometimes just doesn’t want to talk. So, in case you hadn’t got the message about any of these or just want to read something (probably) relatable, here are a few times you just shouldn’t talk to someone.

Headphones – please tell me somebody relates to this! Firstly, my headphones block out all other noise – I’m not going to hear you if I’ve got them in, especially if I’m listening to music. If I am listening to music (which lets face it, I probably am…why else would I have my headphones in?) then I’m probably relaxed, enjoying the quiet…or not so quiet? Let’s say enjoying the quiet from other people, enjoying the noise from my music. Also, don’t then get angry at me if I don’t reply…I probably didn’t hear you. That or I just don’t want to talk at that precise moment!

When I’m asleep– This ones obvious but some people just don’t seem to have got the memo *cough* air hostess’ *cough*. (Yes, I know it’s their job and they can’t help it) Like seriously? Do you really want to deal with me just after I’ve woken up, correction – just after you’ve woke me up! I’m bad enough in the morning, let alone when you wake me because you wanted a chat! I’m sorry but I’m not gong to cooperate. I get it, you have to wake me in an emergency but an aimless chat is not an emergency.

Reading or watching TV, any sort of thing that requires concentration– Especially if I’m doing some form of work, if I haven’t asked for help, don’t go questioning me unless you have an actually, helpful correction. Same for writing blog posts, I want to concentrate! Just let me get on with it, then feel free to ramble to me.

Honestly, I could rant for days about when you shouldn’t talk to someone, but I don’t have the time to write it all down! Make sure to leave a comment telling me if you can relate to these or any other times you don’t want people to annoy you!

Embarrassing Stories

So, embarrassing stories. We all have them, let’s be real. In an attempt to be the Relatable Blogger™, I thought I would share some with you!

Well, here goes. Story number one is a throw back to summer 2016 when I walked directly into one of those umbrellas you see on the beach. As if I wasn’t already mentally cursing myself, there were people under said umbrella. I swear I heard one of them laugh, though that may of been me laughing at myself lol

Can we take a moment to talk about clumsyness in public, crowded enviroments?  Imagine walking near some roadworks and walking directly into a bright orange traffic cone. Yeah, I guess you don’t particulary want to imagine that huh? Well, that’s happened to me when I was too engrossed in my phone (don’t walk and text, kids)

It’s the everyday things that go from normal to cringe worthy in a few seconds. Say your walking through a cafe? Oh look, a chair! You can try and avoid it but it goes without saying that at least one of you, if you’re with a group, are going to trip.

PLEASE COMMENT STORIES BELOW! lol okay if I’m gonna share something, I need you guys to share as well aha

A dangerous flight…

As we were flying through a lightning storm, I decided to write down my thoughts…you know, like any sane person would! Well, here they are:

Okay, I swear there is a lightning storm happening outside right now, the sky keeps flashing. 

Earlier, as I wrote this post, I thought I saw a flash of lightning, but later passed it off as my imagination. Now that it’s dark? The sky is flashing up every few seconds and I’m pretty sure it’s lightning. Not gonna lie, I’m kind of terrified.

Why isn’t the pilot mentioning the lightening storm that’s blatantly happening?

I’m not going mad, my family just confirmed that they too can see the sky lighting up

Okay it seems to have stopped now, I’m slightly happier.

Just found out from an air hostess that there was in fact a lightening storm and that we are currently being diverted around it.

Hopefully that’s the end of it.

I’ve jinxed it, I can see lightning again…I’m actually freaking out inside.

Its getting closer, the clouds right by us just lit up

Oh my god that strike was right by the wing

I say the clouds light up…well, we are flying directly over a lightening storm…not through it thank god

What exactly happens if the strike is below us? I mean, it doesn’t exactly hit us but it’s so close it could? Honestly? I’ve no idea.

It’s actually strangely beautiful, even if it’s terrifying

What exactly am I meant to feel right now? We’re flying above lightening.

What is going on!? Why hasn’t the pilot mentioned it yet?

I’m usually okay with flying. Now? I never want to fly again

Haha according to the air hostess earlier we were being ‘diverted around the storm’. Umm no, I can still see it.

How oblivious is everyone? The sky outside is being brightly lit every few seconds in a way that is blatantly caused by lightning yet I can hear no one else freaking out?

Everytime there’s a small pause with no lightning I’m like ‘oh! It’s stopped!’. It hasn’t…it really hasn’t. It’s getting worse.

Oh my god, stop lightning!

Writing is hard when every few seconds you check outside the window to see another lighting strike. I’m not paranoid, I swear

Most the flashes are coming from behind the wing now… Does that mean we are finally getting away from it?

I guess the flashes are getting further away…the pilot still hasn’t mentioned it though

Lightning? You there? Ooh! I think it’s gone

No, still there…what fun…

Now are you gone?

I think we’re starting to go down. We couldn’t do that if there was anymore lightning, right? Right?
