A Fabulous Return!

Wow! Hello! It’s been so long since our last post…I think it was Halloween.

I would just like to take a moment to apologise for our inability to keep our promise of daily/weekly posts…that’s so out of the window. However, after contemplating my life over the course of this weekend, I am determined to be a better person. I am going to change, to be better, to strive further. I shall study, I shall work hard and I shall blog. And I shall keep it up. Aha, deep and emotional much.

So a quick update. What’s been going on?

I started college…and that’s pretty much it. Social life has gone out the window…not that I even had one to start with.

No I joke, I think I’ve been more sociable over this last year than I have in my whole life. That’s a joke too. I think the fact that I have to travel to Nottingham every day meaning that I leave my home town every day somehow convinces my mind that I have a social life.

But no, I’ve started college at ncn…the High Pavement campus. I am doing my A-Levels. I’m doing four, was previously doing five. My insanity levels were at extraordinary heights during that time. I am doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths (don’t ask me why, I don’t know) and History. In true Ilkeston words, they’re SOLID.

When people said that the jump from GCSE to A-Level was a huge one, I massively underestimated that. It’s EXTREMELY LARGE for all your Year 11s. Forget friends, forget social networking sites, forget life.

That’s the problem with what went wrong for me. I was so worried about making friends when I started at college as I only knew one person there, that I spent my first term getting to know people and forming friendships. I went out after college to spend time getting to know others, and I spent all of my breaks chatting too. So I am now so behind. And failing. I think I would have been better off friendless. However, saying that, I wouldn’t have changed meeting the people and making the friends I have for the world.

In terms of anything else, I shall just say I have been a social butterfly at some times, and at others, a bit of a lonely hamster. I have used a hamster metaphor here as they literally do nothing. They sleep and run around in their little wheels. I think I’m justified.

But safe to say, apart from the occasional bad time, this college year has been a good one. I am happy and enjoying life. So hipster. YOLO.

So until next time, or until Scarlett notices I’m blogging again and does an update on herself,

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and STAY FABULOUS! Wow, I’ve missed saying that πŸ˜€

Welcome back, Scarlett!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! As of 22:53, yesterday evening, I had confirmation that Scarlett had returned from her boating trip around the country. This has personally made me very happy, and I’m sure that it has also made our circle of friends very happy too πŸ˜€Β 

So I have some welcome back messages from myself, Isaac and Lyndon, as we are the only ones insane enough to still be awake.

Isaac:Β Hey Scarlett, I missed you lots, it really hasn’t been the same without you here, I have missed all of our Xbox shenanigans loads! Welcome home!

Lyndon:Β When you left so did a part of me and now you have returned I feel complete again. Welcome home!Β 

Laura: Hey sweet pea! Funny thing is once you were on your return journey and now that you have returned home, I am suddenly much better. I hope you appreciate that I found you a banner that has American stars on them to welcome you home. I have missed you, very much, and I am very glad that you’re home safe and sound, and that you are now enjoying some peaceful catch up sleep. I will definitely see you later, I may even come and drag you out of your house before you do me. I hope you’ve had a lovely time. Our little family is all back together now! Welcome home honey! πŸ™‚Β 

So, until the next time a friend leaves us all and then returns:

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!

Scarlett: I’ve just seen this and realised how much i love my friends – you’re all fabulous. I’m extremely happy to be home and in the presence of such amazing people again. And Laura, i doΒ appreciate all of your time and effort to get me an American Welcome Home Banner – you know me so well.Β Β 

The Return of a Fabulous Friend!

JACK’S BACK!Β 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome back Mr Jack Bradshaw to the country. He’s been away for practically a month in Thailand and he has been missed very much. Especially by me and Scarlett. We’ve been having serious withdrawal symptoms. Our group just doesn’t function as well without him. He completes our little family.

So I’m super duper happy that he’s back safe and sound. However, Scarlett has gone away on a boat trip for 10 days, so missed him coming back. Great timing (that was sarcasm). So she has to wait another ten days to see him. I want to laugh, but that’s unfair, so love and hugs Scarlett. I did send her some Snapchats of me and Jack together though to make her jealous. I’m really such an evil friend.

So welcome back Jack (from Laura as Scarlett hasn’t seen you yet). Hang on in there Scarlett! Have a lovely and safe trip πŸ˜€

So, I dedicate and address this to Scarlett:

Stay Safe, Stay Warm, Stay Hydrated and Stay Fabulous!
