Hello Stranger

Wow, it's been a while, sorry. Soooo many things have happened since I last updated here, and to be honest I don't know where to start? I guess the main thing is that I've finished my AS levels, and am currently doing A2. My biggest relief is that I no longer have to do Maths Mechanics, I'm so grateful that you (typically) only have to continue with three. My overall results were AABD, no prizes for guessing which one was maths. Also, my biggest achievement to date is definitely getting 98/100 in Ethics at AS?! How did I manage that? Craaaaazy.

Sticking to the topic of education, I've attended quite a few university open days and have even stayed over night at a couple. My current goal is to do a BSc in Psychology, and I think I've finalised my top five. I'm not going to say too much now, as there's soooo much I could say, and I don't want to bombard you with too much rambling, but yeah, I think I've decided.

This summer my family and I went to Orlando, and I had the best time ever. It's fair to say it was rather hot, I ate a tonne of burgers and took about 7931871687 photos of Disney. Surprisingly, I didn't do too much shopping this year? I did buy a bag from Nine West, which I'm still so in love with, and is probably my favourite purchase in a while. I was so close to delving into the car savings to buy a Michael Kors watch, but decided that the prospect of never having to get the school bus ever again was far more tempting than a watch could ever be. 

Speaking of which, I passed my theory test, hooray! It's fair to say that driving isn't a natural talent of mine, but I'm very pleased that I passed first time. My practical test is booked and I have my fingers crossed all goes well, to be honest I can't wait to just get it all over and done with. 

I recently finished watching Gossip Girl, and I'm so sad. I definitely need a healthy dose of Chuck Bass in my daily life. If you haven't watched it, do. It takes an episode or two to get into it, but after that, there are another 120 episodes for your viewing pleasure. It's such good 'background noise', eg when getting dressed or doing your makeup. 

Back in July my family and I saw Ed Sheeran perform at Wembley. It was incredible. That man is a musical genius, and I'd love to see him live again. Next week I'm going to see James Bay, and I can't wait. Chaos and the Calm is such a good album, and I have a feeling it will be even better live.

What have you been up to recently?
