Things I'm going to start doing.

So it's April 1st! I can't believe how quickly this year is going!
We're four months into the year and sadly, I haven't stuck to most of my new years resolutions.
I decided that I'm going to have some resolutions for April and then on the 1st of May I'll write another blog to see if I've stuck to them.
And, if I haven't failed any, I'll let myself buy a dress that I really want!
I think this is a good idea because it's much easier to stick to something for a month than a whole year, and hopefully by the time the month is over I'll have got used to doing these things and will continue for the rest of the year.
Anyway, let's actually get to the point!
1) Drink more water.
I have an app called iDrate which really helped me to drink the right amount of water throughout january, but for some reason I just stopped. This month I'm going to try again!
2) Stop biting my nails!
Yes, I'm a nail biter and it sucks. It's the worst habit ever, most of the time I don't even realise I'm doing it, and I can't control myself! It's absolutely disgusting and I want to have nice nails, so hopefully I can quit this for a month (and more!!).
3) Eat an apple a day.
I should eat my five a day, but I rarely do. I don't eat much at all throughout the day, some days I just eat toast and that's it, but this is really unhealthy. It's unrealistic that I'm going to start eating my 5 a day, but if I can stick to an apple every day then that should definitely help!
And, i hear it keeps the doctors away ;)
wow I need to get a life.
4) Take an omega 3 pill every day!
I'm a vegetarian and have been for 7 years. This makes me tired as I rarely get any iron/protein in my diet. Recently I bought some fish oil pills, but I always forget to take them! I'm going to try and have one every single day to improve my health.
5) Stop wearing so much makeup.
I suffer from eczema, which if anyone didn't know is a skin condition that makes your skin very dry, sensitive and itchy. I also have dry and sensitive patches of skin on my face which have gotten worse in the cold weather recently. When I wear makeup it dry's out my skin even more and it doesn't look good at all. I'm still going to wear eyemakeup and occasionally blusher or concealer when I need it, but wearing less will hopefully improve my skin and confidence :)

I may add more throughout the month, but for now I only have five :)
if anybody else has any I should consider then I would love to know! And let me know what yours would be!

Thanks for reading!

Busy! (where i've been)

I don't think anybody is reading this but in case anybody is or if anyone actually cares, here's a quick update on where I've been/what I've been doing for the past few months.
February has been an extremely busy month for me, and not in a good way either. A lot of personal things happened towards the beginning of the month which have affected everyday since then.
I did have a hard few weeks but now I'm fine and happier than ever.

I was also trying to do film studies coursework. I don't know if any other schools do this, but my year are forced into doing film studies and it's the worst thing ever. I can't explain how boring it is watching the same scene from the same movie over and over again to analyse the colours. But, I've been doing a lot of work for it so lets just hope it pays off!

I don't think anyone following my instagram/twitter/blog actually know how old I am because I never reveal my age for some reason (it's good to be safe on the internet.. ha ;] ).
But anyway, I'm in year 9 at the moment and have been in the process of choosing my gcse options! I don't know about other schools but at ours, we choose four options in year 9 which we start doing gcse work on in year 10 and 11.
I chose Geography, Spanish, Fine Art and Business Studies. The next two years are going to be so boring for me, and I can't help but be jealous of people who took stuff like drama, music, dance etc. Although I hope that my choice to be sensible with my options pays off at some point, even if it means being bored to death for two years. I'm still waiting to see if I get to do all these gcse's though, fingers crossed ;).

Another thing that's been keeping me busy is the huge end of year 9 science exam we have to do. This is to put is in sets for year 10 and determines whether the people who chose to take triple science are able to do it. We have to have a huuuuugggeee exam on everything we've studied since year 7! wish me luck :(.

I'm so excited for these holidays! (Tomorrow is my last day and then its SPRING BREAAAAKK!!!!) I'll most likely be spending my days sleeping, eating and watching movies.
