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

Life is short.

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!!!!!

EXAM MOTIVATION!+A SPECIAL MESSAGE

 AMAZING PHOTO-Sebastian Mantel

So I’ve been really busy studying but I wanted to make this post because I know, I am not the only one and exams are stressful and I believe that if you find the motivation and work hard then there is absolutely nothing stopping you from achieving an A+

THIS PART HERE IS RANDOM:

So, this is kinda related, kinda not, but, anyways, when I’m on Pinterest and I see all these “perfect” study notes it discourages me because my notes don’t ever look like this

pinterest: bellaxlovee ✧☾                                                                                                                                                                                 More

They look like this:

(PS: soz for the camera quality)

So on Pinterest I have this board Studyblr and it’s a lot more sorta realistic in terms of me and how I study, Hmm did that make sense?? But yeah, because this post is pretty short, if you want more then,I would definitely recommend that.

9de5d2015c3070353cc9d41cc47484a3

This is extremely weird because I’m putting my ending up here, lol, but anyways. I just want you guys to remember that exams are hard. That’s a fact. But now, isn’t the time to give up. If you give up now, all those hours making study notes, getting your friends to test you, late night homework: that’s all for nothing. You guys cannot give up no matter what happens. I know you can’t wait for the year/term/semester to be over so you can relax but I promise you guys that if you work hard now and you study and you try your best that is the only thing that matters. And there is no better feeling in the world than knowing you tried hard and seeing amazing results, or proving everyone who doubted you wrong. And I really, really, really want you guys to do well and even if you don’t you have come so bloody far and I am soo proud of you even if you aren’t.

Things can change

Okay so that’s enough of that, now for what you’re really here for:

 MOTIVATION

DORM ROOM INSPIRATION. The small mess on the bed itself is what I am looking for, but everywhere. It feels crammed, and I want it that way.

No one studies quite like Rory Gilmore.

HOW TO SLAYY THE NEW YEAR//2018 Girlboss Guide

Heyy fam❤️❤️

 Let’s face it. 2017 could best be described as the struggle between blogging, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and socializing.There really wasn’t much time to get all that done and fit in time to study for exams and make study notes.

Obviously you’re gonna let school work be a priority but we all get de-motivated and procrastinate or make notes and don’t study from them.

ORGANISATION

1.PLAN

This is the first step because this stage can make it break you. I find that writing a to-do list is always the best way to start off a productive day. Knowing that you have a set plan of what you want to achieve is only gonna make you want to get it all done.

2.HAVE A GOAL

What’s the point of doing anything if you don’t have a goal? A goal is gonna push you towards working harder for your dreams,no matter how far away it may seem.My whole thing is that I wanna inspire people. And I wanna pass math because I wanna get away from school and watch Netflix and travel and blog without any distractions.

3.HAVE A GOOD VIBES 

If I go to school, unhappy about learning or listening in class, it’s gonna be really hard for me to actually get stuff done when the time comes. I love school don’t get me wrong, but I don’t love it because of work or anything, I love it because I get to see my friends. Knowing that in 10 minutes the bell is gonna ring and I can hang with my friends, is one of the only reasons I bother in NS😂

4.SIT NEAR THE FRONT

Knowing that at any second a teacher is gonna catch you talking is a great way to get you to focus, lol. But it’s been scientifically proven that if you sit in the front, your teacher just assumes that you are one of “those” students.

giphy.gif

5.ASK QUESTIONS

Not only will it make it seem like you care about learning the stuff, but it’ll help you understand and remember the topic better. Never be too afraid to ask questions, because trust me, when you know the answer to that question in the exam and everyone’s sitting there clueless, you won’t regret asking.

6.TAKE NOTES

I’m one of those people who always seems to have their life together but like, in reality is such a mess. And like, the only reason that happens is because I spent a year watching organisation YouTube videos for fun. Honestly still obsessed with them but, the one major thing I learnt from them is that it’s important to make notes as you learn about the stuff and not wait till two days before the exam to do them. I obviously, being me, didn’t make notes throughout the year for all of my subjects. But for the really content-heavy stuff like EMS, History and NS I did, and that saved me so much time. Because when everyone got their study notes they had to do everything and I was having such a joll because I’d done over half of it.

Also these aren’t my study notes because I’m on holiday in Australia and I don’t need them so I left them at hometumblr_nmirfudga81u9hg3jo1_1280-1.jpg

HACKS

THE TEDDY BEAR METHOD4857d2f92eca6c6a28ea51783fcd74dc7b0ed4ed_hq.jpg How it works: You place gummy bears or any other sweet of your choice at the end of every paragraph.When you’re studying the information, as soon as you’ve studied a section and reached a gummy bear you get to eat it.

THE TEXTBOOK METHOD

How it works: You read through a page in your textbook once or twice, close it and quickly write down everything you remember.You then, re-open the textbook and add the bits of info you forgot in a different colour.

THE 3 DIFFERENT TYPES OF LEARNERS

Finding out which type of learner you are can help you find the study methods that work best for you.I’m a visual and auditory learner, mostly visual.So I’m gonna break it down so it looks aesthetically pleasing and isn’t just a bland paragraph looking thing. What am I even saying 😂😂

Visual learner

  • Learns best by seeing things
  • Flashcards, colour, diagrams, charts

Kinesthetic learner

  • Learns best by movement
  • Walk around while revising, use games or activities to help you remember,toss a tennis ball around while studying

Auditory Learner

  • Learns best by hearing
  • Study groups, reading aloud, videos,recording yourself and playing it back

NOTE TAKING There are so many different ways to go when it comes to making study notes: flashcards, mind maps, bullet pointing

So this is the Cornell Note Taking technique, the thing I love the most about this, is how visually appealing it is.I tried it for a bit and I loved it so much and then I lost my ruler so😂

Never stop dreaming

PERIOD HORROR STORY!!?CRINGEY!!!

AWWWWKKKKKS!!!

WOW, let’s just say this is an interesting topic…

Funny Pictures Of The Day – 36 Pics

So what happened was:

It was a normal school day, and I was being savage (as expected) with my friend who we’re going to call Peanut Butter.And we legit just walk up and down this sort of path thingy, anyway I was doing that when these girls (who are pretty much, like… okay, let’s say we’re frenemies) called me over and I was like “Hold on” to Peanut Butter and I walked to them and they’re like “Are you on your period?” and I’m like “That’s a weird question to ask, but lol, no why?” and THEN THEY WAS LIKE “There’s blood on your dress” and because I’m me I did the whole turn around and try to see thii

 dog the simpsons episode 12 season 19 19x12 GIF

And I finally understood, why it was called a heavy flow because the blood had decided to flow on the bottom “half” of my dress. Now this wouldn’t be such a huge issue

IF

I didn’t pass my crush everyday while walking on this path and we fairly long breaks so since I pass him like over 10 times in one break I’m like freaking out because WHAT IF HE SAW but like I need to change before anyone else sees, so what happened was I ran to the office with Peanut Butter and I explained to the lady at the office what had happened and she’s like okay and she told Peanut Butter to run to the thrift shop to get me a dress and she’s like “You guys are practically the same size, so just get a dress that looks like it’ll fit you” and then she lead me into the sick room, where there were two other guys who were actually sick and stuff, so I stood against the wall and waited.

And waited,and waited.

And then Penguin comes into the office with a bunch of his friends, I legit died a little inside like, because bruhh and like thank goodness he didn’t see me in there coz that would’ve lead to questions… )so finally Peanut Butter arrives and I grab  the dress say thank you and dash to the bathroom, like Usain Bolt ain’t got nothing on me.

So I changed into this dress and I was thinking “OMG WHAT IF HE SAW!HOW MANY PEOPLE SAW!” and also I was pretty livid  bloody mad at those girls because they laughed and gossiped about it between themselves. And then later (I was still wearing the oversized dress Peanut Butter brought me) like I was sitting and they were walking past and I got up to  throw something away and they’re like laughing and giggling at me and then one of them is like “How did you mess up your dress again, isn’t that another dress.”

 stupid brain idiot dumb the wiz GIF

And I am not an OMG that was mean I wanna cry type of girl, I’m a, now you mad me made move before I punch something (most likely you) type of girl.

..is it sad that I said this to someone one day..? "I find that when I look at you I want to hit you with a brick... Dude, run away before I find a brick."-Arizona

This is why Arizona will forever be my spirit animal.

Anyway, then this happened:

 

 fighting mean girls lindsay lohan mean girls movie cady heron GIF

(In my mind)

Lol, we have a really scary principal, I ain’t about to have a one on one with her because I was educating a girl on the proper way to talk to someone.

So I was just like

 beyonce beyonce walk hella sassy GIF beyonce beyonce walk hella sassy GIF

Lol, I didn’t do that either but I walked away.

And then, even though I was in agony, and in a stupid dress that was like quadruple the size of me and school finished at 2 I had to wait till 5ish before getting fetched from school.

Stupid. Irregular.Cycle.

Anywayy, if you’re a guy and you read this,

Confusion

Heyy guys,

Wow. This is actually kinda hard to type. It’s just…

So yesterday I was up watching Shooter till like around 11 and then I went to bed and I woke up at like 8ish(which is actually really late for me). I don’t wanna say I woke up in a bad mood but I wasn’t exactly in a good one either, so let’s just call this mood GYST mode coz I was feeling really productive and I wrote my to-do list and I studied made study notes for math and NS(science)and I was just having a great day! I honestly don’t even know why I’m in such a bad mood because I just bought another book, ‘Milk and Honey’ and I’ve been dying to read it ever since I first heard about it! I like, just got home and I watched a few Youtube videos and I was just like ‘Okay, time to do schoolwork’. And I like couldn’t if you get what I mean. The school term is pretty much over which means we’re pretty much done with the third term’s work but we’ve started term 4’s work because it’s a short and busy term coz of exams (we write 13 btw). I just feel so stressed, and I don’t even know why.And I honestly just want to cry, but I’m soo tired of crying and feeling sad . And uhhm… I’m kinda worried my term mark because I know I didn’t do well, and it’s so frustrating!!!Like I was soo angry at myself when I got my report back at the end of term 2 and I promised myself I would work harder, and I did and I tried hard, but it’s all just too much.Like tests and projects and homework and blogging and me wanting to start a Youtube channel, and I really don’t want to start moaning and crying about what’s going on but I just feel so stressed. And it’s like I can’t even think straight anymore. I just want it to stop. Like, where is the big pause button I need??? Like at what point… at what point does it all just stop!So what I said I would do, and this is going back to the schoolwork side of things is like catch up because I feel like I’m falling behind and I like was in 3  4subjects:

Math

Tech

NS

and Afr(Afrikaans)

So I borrowed my friends’ books and I got some textbooks from my teachers(they generally keep them coz our parents complain about the weight of our bags). But yeah I caught up and honestly, I know it’ll be worth it, not just like with exams coming up but like…I was awake till one and I don’t see the results. And now I’m crying again even though I said I wouldn’t but it really, it really and truly does suck.To sit at a desk till one working hard and catching up, failing a test and then sitting in class feeling so dumb for not understanding the work and begging myself not to cry in front of my class. And with Afrikaans, I work hard, and we get given tests and I don’t understand a single thing anymore.

I just feel so dumb.

And I’m sorry if this wasn’t the post you were expecting but I really needed to get this off my chest. And I didn’t know I felt all this stuff till I wrote it down so I’m kinda glad I did but I just want you to know that it’s okay to have flaws, it’s okay to be real with people. You don’t have to act around people, and if you have stuff going on talk to someone coz internalizing your feelings isn’t going to get you anywhere. It’s not going to help you.It’s going to tear you apart mentally and you won’t even understand why.

Uhm. I just want to say that whatever you’re going through, it’s going to be okay.

The spring dance is on Friday, so is civvies day and cake and candy (basically an opportunity for us to dress up and eat sweets), I have a project due for tomorrow. And guess what! I’m not done! And there’s an essay! YAY! she said wishing she could be homeschooled. We have another project coming up that makes up our entire term mark for business (we call it EMS). And guess who decided to show up!!! When was the last time I read something that wasn’t a textbook??? Like honestly!!! YOU. HAVE. GOT.TO.BE.KIDDING. (I have math homework.)

THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL:

  1. SPRING DANCE
  2. CIVVIES DAY
  3. I BOUGHT A BOOK!!!
  4. I HAD NANDOS TODAY!
  5. I MIGHT BE WATCHING A MOVIE WITH MY FRIENDS ON SATURDAY
  6. I’VE DONE SO MUCH WORK AND AM LIKE A GAZILLION STEPS CLOSER TO WHERE I WANNA BE WHICH IS………

I hope you guys are having a great week, hopefully not as stressful as mine! I would love to stay and chat but I’m tired and I have a presentation that I need to do.zzzz

Exams-update

The most gruelling two weeks of my life are over and I have never been so happy and exhausted at the same time. NS (Natural Science) was awful and I left out like 90% of the questions, CA (Creative Arts) sucked as well but apart from that I did well. I GOT 91% IN HISTORY and I am so proud of myself because I haven’t done as well in history this year as I wanted to. We got our English paper 2 today after it had been marked and many people did badly, I was one of them 67%. EMS was a lot better though 83% and Afrikaans 74%, I was ecstatic because Afrikaans is a subject I struggle in, LO (Life Orientation) was amazing 87.5% and English paper 1 was 73%. I think those are all the exams we’ve gotten back so far but yay!!!

I have to pass because I like expensive things
