Finally…?!

If you’ve read any of my blog posts in the last 3 weeks then you may have known that me and my friends were planing on starting a podcast and guess what…. we FINALLY did it….. Yaaaasssss.

This has been in the works for about a month and a half, and we just haven’t been able to get the whole group together to do the first episode but we were able to do exactly that yesterday.

In our first episode we basically talk about alot of shit to be honest, and we basically had a normal conversation between us but just in front of a mic. The podcast was about 40-45mins long but by the time my friend edits some parts, it’ll probably be around 30 mins, which is great considering we tried to record it about 90 times.

But I had fun and yes it’ll probably be all over the place but with everything in life, practice makes perfect, and exactly what we need…. practice.

The first episode should be up about Friday, so yeah, we finally got round to doing it.

I hope you guys like it when it’s up and I’ll put a normal post up on Saturday when I do my personal podcast .

Party Time !!!

Tonight my friend Jody and I were invited to a birthday party for my other friend Emily’s Dad, who is turning 50 in a couple days.

Even though I’m in 5th year (10th or 11th Grade in the US) of high school this was the first proper party I had been invited to.

Yeah not that depressing to be completely honest with you, I’ve never really been the drinking and partying type of teenager, I’m more of a stay at home and face time you type of guy, but it was nice actually be going to a party for once instead of seeing other people having a good time on Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

It was a really fun night and I didn’t get to drunk haha, that was a joke, anyways I only had one alcoholic drink and then had Coca-Cola & Irn Bru the rest of the night, even then it was before we even left for the party so by the time we got there it was worn off anyways hahaha.

My friends and I basically just sat at our table most of the night, sang along to the songs that we knew and just made the most of it, at some point in the night tho we did go out for a walk around the block to get some fresh air, and about half 11 at night went and got a take away.

I do remember falling up the stairs at one point in the night, not because I was drunk, it was actually because I’m just a clumsy cunt, to put it nicely.

Overall it was a good night and I’ll probably do it again if I get invited to another party like that.

Slight Change of Plan

If you read my last post the you would know that my friends and I have decided to start making a podcast, and we were going to do start it on Friday (which was yesterday in the UK) but as you may be able to tell it didn’t happen, no it wasn’t because we chickened out on doing it but, it was actually because one of my friends and the girl in charge of sound and editing was actually ill, so we’ve decided to push it back to next week so hopefully youse don’t mind but we didn’t want to start without our gurl Emily so bare with well be back up and running next week.

Self-reflection 

There comes a time in every ones life where you have to sit yourself down and reflect on things that have happened in your lives.

Last night I went into a bad mental state which put me in a very, very dark place and thankfully I had friends who help me through it, but I did have alot of time to reflect on things that have happend to me throughout the first half of the year.

In away I guess it was a good thing that it happend because I reflected on all the bad things that has happened over the first half of this year, and it made me realise that what’s happend over the course of 5 months may have made me feel shitty ( and sometimes still does ) but it’s made me make a whole new group of friends, it’s made me realise who’s there and who I can count on.

It’s made me reflect on things that have happend further back I the past and has made me realise, that even thought I played apart in the things that have happend it wasn’t all me and I shouldn’t blame myself and hurt myself emotionally over it, it’s also made me realise that people are cruel and mean.

I think it was good for me to reflect on things as it was all jammed in my head and even though the impact of the situations haven’t complete left, it’s a start right?? (I think it is)

Killer Moths 

Ever been lying in your bed minding you own business when… BAM!!! a moth or a fly dive bombs you and you go straight into pure assassin mode, scoping your room to find out where it is and grabbing the first thing next to you to protect your self against the fierce beast ( even tho it’s about the size of a pea)??

Yeah me too in fact it happend today hahah… I was just lying in my bed watch The Big Bang Theory when all of a sudden BAM!!! Hello, Helloooo, when I say I’ve never jumped out my bed that fast in my life… I mean it, You know what I did grabbed my deodorant and a shoe and became an assassin…. it took about 2 hours to get rid of the bitch… and I’m still on assassin mode hahahaha

Almost My First Exam

On the 2nd May 2017 I will be sitting my one and only high school exam, if I were to say I wasn’t shitting it would be me lying but I can’t say I’m not excited to sit it. Even tho there’s a lot of pressure for me to pass this exam as it’s my only exam, I still feel excited I think it’s plainly to do with it being something new and something I haven’t done before. Yes I’ve sat prelims and tests in class but I’ve never been excited to do them.

I think this also comes with the new me, tbh moving away from my old group of friends and finding a totally new group was the best choice for me. I finally feel like myself ( I’ll up a more detailed post about that later) and I also feel like I’m not pressured into acting a certain way around them.

So my exam is one week away today and I am excited, nervous, scared and all that shit but hopefully it all goes well eh??
