Monthly Memories: March


As part of my pre-birthday celebrations, 2 of my close friends from school decided that we should all go out for pancakes and milkshakes. One of the waitress' put a candle on my pancake and then they all sang happy birthday to me, which I thought was incredibly sweet, as well as slightly embarrassing! I honestly had the nicest time and I felt so grateful at the fact that the girls cared enough to want to take me out and celebrate with me. Although the pancake and milkshake combination can be extremely filling, it was delicious and I also think it looks very aesthetically pleasing, right?

 On the day of my actual birthday itself, I had a half day at school. I actually don't mind Wednesdays at all, because they are actually one of my favourite days in terms of the lessons that I have, but it was an extra treat to be able to get off school early too. My mum and grandma came to pick me up and then we went back to my house. I had a little snack, laid all of my presents out in the living room ready to open that evening and then I got ready for my birthday meal out to the carvery. It was just the 4 of us, as unfortunately my sister had to work, but then we went back home and she was able to come round to see me open my presents and have tea and cake, which made my day even more special. I did actually put up a blog post on the day, so you can go and read that here if you would like to do so. It's all about some of the life lessons I've learnt and my biggest achievements!

 If you have been reading my blog for a while now, or you know me personally, then you will be aware of the fact that I'm literally obsessed with sunsets. I absolutely adore them. I thought that I just had to include this one, because it was particularly beautiful! It's good to remember that no matter what you're going through, or how much of a tough time you might be having right now, the sun will always rise and the sun will always set. I just think that's something worth remembering. Be like the sun. Make sure that you always wake up with a smile on your face and make sure that you always make it through to the end of the day as well. It may sound silly, or cheesy, or whatever, but I think it's quite cute if I'm honest!

Sometimes, certain people come into your life and once they are actually present, you have no idea how you could have ever been happy before they came in. This is my best friend, Sam. I became friends with her when I was in Year 7 and I'm now in Year 10. This girl is my absolute world. We may have had loads of silly, little arguments in the past, but we haven't had one in a long time. I have supported her through many things that she's gone through and I am honestly so proud of how far she has come. I'm not going to take all of the recognition, because I'm not the reason she is the amazing person that she is, but I do believe that I've helped her as much as I can and I've never stopped being there for her. We've both had relationship problems. We've both had difficulties with our lives that we don't always want other people to know. We have both had drama and heartbreak. But, we have stood by each other through the good and the bad. which is the most important thing that proves that our friendship is true. We have endless memories, which I'm not going to share with you, as she already knows what they are, same with our inside jokes, but trust me, there are many! She is such a beautiful, bubbly, hilarious, strong girl and she's my girl, no matter what anyone thinks or says. I shall always have her back and I honestly do believe that our friendship will last a lifetime. If you're reading this, I love you unconditionally Sam. You really are my long-lost sister. Thank you for everything.


As part of my controlled assessment for the GCSE Geography course I'm on, I went on a day trip to Windsor. The main aim was that we had to interview members of the public, complete surveys and maps and all of that fun stuff that's compulsory. My group in particular were in control of taking photographs, which meant that we were focusing on the buildings, the scenery, the different types of tourist places that were around - that kind of thing! I'm really into photography, as I'm sure you can tell by this style of post and my blog in general, which is exactly what my friend Nadia is like too, who was also in my group, so that was really nice. We were getting very snap-happy and then we were just relaxing, walking around, doing the work that we needed to do and enjoying ourselves as much as we could. I enjoyed the fact that on our lunch break, we were allowed to do whatever we wanted! 

Whilst I'm on the topic of the Geography trip, I thought I'd also talk about another gorgeous girlie, who was also in my group. Lisa is one of my close friends that I stuck with throughout the day and she helped me to feel less nervous than I initially was as well! She made sure that I wasn't left out and then when it came to the lunch break, we had our lunch on one of the benches along the high street that we had been working on first of all and then we wandered off and looked in Boots, swatching all of the makeup! I liked it more, because we were able to just go off by ourselves and do whatever we wanted for an hour and a bit. It allowed us to feel much more relaxed and we had more freedom, which was great. Overall, I really did enjoy the trip and it made it even better knowing I was with some of my favourite people.
What have you been up to this month? Have you done anything exciting?
Lots of love,
