Hello everybody! I hope that you have all been enjoying the amazing weather we have been recieving (if you are a fellow Brit). For anyone who might have noticed, yes, this is my first post in five weeks… I will just blame my A levels for that- my A levels which are now finally over!
I am so pleased with how they went- my history papers were complete dreams although, the Russia paper was so simple that I may have over complicated it. However, my English papers were brilliant and I wrote so much for every question. The Dracula and Twelfth Night (worst Shakespeare play ever- do not argue) question was DANGER… I mean come on, Danger? In Dracula? He’s a flipping vampire? They may as well have just handed me a piece of paper with a big red A right then and there.
Only joking, I hope that I have not jinxed myself there but I am very happy with how all of the papers went. Now the waiting game until the 16th August begins…
So, despite all of that this is just a filler post to cover what I have been up to since my exams finished because trust me, I have not stopped.
Firstly, I have become a much more confident driver. On Friday 22nd, I got onto the motorway for the first time on the way to Cardiff to see the wonderful Ed Sheeran himself in concert.
He was incredible. He was his own band, using pedals at his feet to record parts of the song and then loop them, and it got so loud in that room! The bass was too much at some points because it vibrated my whole chest and ruined any videos that I took but it was still incredible.
Ed was really down to earth and even though there were 60,000 of us in that room, he made it feel very personal. It was the biggest arena that I have ever been to and I have never seen the standing area as full as it was; it was completely packed, like no room at all to move!
From there, on the Saturday night I went to my very first hen night. My cousin is getting married this month and we went to TGIFriday’s- thankfully this hen night was much tamer than her other ‘naked butler’-esque hen nights.
It was still really fun and I had a few cocktails called a ‘woo woo’ which I would strongly recommend if you don’t really like the taste of alcohol because it was very fruity.
Next on the list of my “busy life” was getting my hair dyed! I used to be extremely blonde when I was much younger and whenever I look at photo’s I wish that I still had it. So my aunty- who is a hair dresser- offered to do it for me and I drove down to Chester (two and a half hours away) to get it done.
The top is still in need of a bit more colour, so depending on my money situation at the end of summer I might have some more highlights before going to Uni.
Anyway the picture on the right is the river in Chester which my best friend and I sat in the scorching sunshine with ice creams before heading back home. All in all that day, I did six and a half hours driving which was crazy and so stressful at times but I am glad that I proved to myself I could do it.
Finally, between all of these events, I have been working as many shifts as I could- all until finish so I am very tired at the moment. Oh well, as long as I can afford food next year I will be happy…
The only perk of working at a fancy hotel on the night shift ^ because earlier on this garden is just filled with snooty people demanding drinks and food.
I hope that you are all enjoying the beginning of your summers! And congratulations to everyone who has finished their exams.
