MY GOALS FOR 2018|Blogging|School

Heyyyy guys💛

As you know I suck at intros 😂😂 so let’s get right into it, yeah?

Blogging:300 followers

Right now, I have 123 but 300 is totally achievable. If I went from a clueless blogger to a semi-clueless blogger:I can do anything 😂

  • 5 collabs throughout the year

As you know, 2017 was my first year of blogging and I had the opportunity to collab with so many amazing bloggers and just utterly amazing people. It was honestly so much fun, so I cannot wait to do it all again!

  • Share some of the poems I’ve written+artwork

I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time now, but some of my poems are very…real to say the least. Like I honestly don’t know how to describe it, but I only ever write poems when I’m sad, so my poems aren’t exactly the most…lighthearted.I started getting into drawing this time, last year and I love drawing. I don’t have many “drawings” because I prefer to doodle but like my poems I only doodle when I’m sad.

  • Resume Girlboss//Guyboss

I had so much fun getting to know more about all the amazing bloggers in the blogging community, there are so many more people I’d like to get to know better and I’m sure that you would too (winky face)

School:80% average

I’ve wanted an 80% average since grade 5 and don’t get me wrong I’ve come pretty close, but I still haven’t achieved it. Like I can get a 91% in History but not an 80%average??

  • Athletics//Cross-Country team

If you guys have been part of the fam for a while now, you know I work hard to like, be fit and like I tried out for the athletics team for the first time this year and even though I didn’t make it, I did cross country which was a blast! I am honestly so glad I didn’t make the athletics team but 2018’s a new year, so who knows what’ll happen! It’s honestly the funniest thing because when people see this app on my phone they assume I’m tryna lose weight😂like nahh the app is free😂😂

  • Participate! I’m being completely honest and maybe this is just completely abnormal to say but:I don’t like people. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a people person and I can talk for days about the most random things with strangers and even best friends but I don’t like people. Even reading it sounds weird😂 but like I’d much rather be at home alone having like a productive day with nobody in a 6km radius of me.Let me know if that makes sense to you in the comments and this has nothing to do with me being an ambivert btw😂😂

Socials:Twitter-250 followers

Recently, I’ve been getting like a flood of followers completely random btw which is super nice!! And I’ve been making more of an effort to be more ‘active’ on Twitter, so it’s really cool to see my ‘hard work’ paying off.

  • Instagram

I really wanna follow more bloggers on Insta so if you could follow me it makes it so much easier to find you than asking you to leave a link/name down below😂Lol do you think we can get it to 450 before March 1st??❤️

  • Snapchat-Not that I really care or anything because I just use Snapchat to be random with my friends but it would be really nice to get to know you guys better and also its a great way for me to embarrass myself more😄

A Week In Exams❤❤

Heyy!!

So I thought it would be fun(a good way to procrastinate) by writing an a week in exams post because I haven’t posted anything in a while. (I wrote this like a week ago)

Monday:

So today I wrote English Paper 1 and History. And then I realised I was writing Afrikaans and EMS the next day neither of which I had studied for yet. So I spent the rest of my day doing an EMS past paper even,though I write Afrikaans first and watching Youtube videos.

Tuesday:

I wrote EMS and Afrikaans today both were 2 hours papers!!! Like I said before, we wrote Afr first and it was surprisingly easy but like I honestly was so surprised, because so far with the exams I’ve written: they’ve all been really easy and I’ve whizzed through them and written in-depth answers and I think I might actually get a good mark! Then later, we wrote EMS. There were a few questions that should’ve been easy but I had to think about because I hadn’t really studied but I calculated the mark I think I’ll get and it was like an 88% so if that actually happens, I’ll be really chuffed with myself.

Wednesday:

Today I suffered through Math and Creative Arts. I feel like suffering is the wrong word to use but to be honest I’m slightly freaking out. Failing math, means you fail the year. It means all the work I put in was for nada and I ain’t about that life. Math was okayy I’m not overly confident about it but I’m not hysterical either, CA was pretty much the same, my drawings weren’t tooo bad, I just got stumped on a few questions that I probably should’ve known but apart from that it was pretty decent. I honestly feel like the teachers were so extra about how hard our exams were gonna be, but,like I don’t wanna jinx anything so I’ll shut up now.😂😂

Thursday:

Legit can’t be bothered to study. Also I kinda died inside today-way too much laughter😂😂

Friday:

Lol today was so hilarious

I could not.stop.laughing.

Honestly one of the best days of my life but I’ll say no more I like this mysterious vibe😏😂

Also I’ll be doing an update once I get all my grades back so you can find out how good or bad I did with my lack of studying😋

Hope you enjoyed this completely random post about absolutely nothing😂😂

And I hope you’re all having the most amazing day?Day’s?Days?

Hehehe

bloggerrecognitionaward.jpg

THIS IS MY SECOND NOMINATION FOR SOMETHING!!! And I was nominated by a friend best friend of mine Lena and I love her so much and she’s super funny and she gets my weirdness and I love her!And I’ve said that twice, so I’ll say this now: Her blog is PHENOMENAL and you NEED to follow her!

HOW SEVENTEEN WISHES STARTED:

MY ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS

1.You’re weird. Keep doing that.

Be yourself. Just be youself.

The people will learn to deal with the weirdness after a while.*winky face+laughing emoji)

2.Keep learning

I had absolutely no clue what I was doing when I started blogging, I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO ADD PICTURES TO THE POSTS! But I learnt, and I learnt about Canva, and blogging graphics, and how it’s important to add tags to your posts so they’re easy for people to find. And I still learn everyday, whether it’s on Youtube or on TV or when my friends tell me the drama I’ve missed:I learn.

MY  FABULOUS NOMINEES:

-Jenny In Neverland

END OF YEAR GOALS+MOTIVATION

The year is ending.

It’s sorta bittersweet coz I start high school next year. And you know what that means:leaving friends, friendships ending, saying good riddance to teachers I didn’t like, making new friends, one year of boarding school, change. And all the other stuff that comes with starting high school.

But I figure, it ain’t over yet. There’s still a bunch of crazy stuff I wanna do with my friends and I’m still setting goals so, today I’m sharing my goals with you!

Okay, so first I want to share my long term goal with you:

LONG TERM GOAL:

DREAM JOB: MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALIST

Okay, so I’m the typical teen who has no idea what they want to do with their life 99.9% of the time. Recently tho, I randomly decided that this was something I wanted to do when I grow up (also is weird that I used past and future tense in that sentence).

Anyway, I was researching the subjects you need to do well in, if that’s what you wanna do and pretty much every single subject I hate and suck at(btw)  was on the list so I gotta up my game!

Legit, that is my only motivation for math.

This is a speech I did a while back in Afrikaans, about my best friend Victoria. I love her to bits and she means the world to me, so I wanted to share this speech with you because 1) it’s probably the best speech I’ve ever written and 2) I got a really great mark on this and I really wanted this speech to be perfect so that made me super happy!!!

Untitled design (3).png

“SO this was supposed to be a speech about Conor McGregor, but there’s someone really special to me who deserves it more! Victoria Rosilan West-Russel is the most inspirational person I know. She has always been with me no matter how horrible I’ve felt.She’s the person I can call at 2am when I’m crying and the goofball who takes Snapchats of me when I’m eating candy. We talk about everything:church, food, boys, books,boys. She always sees the best in people and she’s every bit as crazy as me.She’s gonna be a world famous author,and she doesn’t even know it yet.She honestly is the most incredible person I know and I love her to bits. She’s funny and she’s kind and she’s worth so much more than she thinks she is. She deserves the world, and all the stars and all the galaxies, she deserves infinite love and friends who truly, truly know her worth.

She is my best friend and I love her.”❤

Please don’t ever forget this, I know you’ve heard this speech and so has my entire class and my Afrikaans teacher but the internet deserves to see it too 😂❤ AND I LOVE YOU!!!!!
