1 down. 7 to go.

Well hey there.
My exams started today. 2 weeks of pure hell for me.
Starting with biology. Ugh! Well actually I felt that it went better than I was expecting, although the chance of me actually getting a grade are slim. But hey ho, thinking positive.
Tomorrow is my Russia History exam, now that is scary, 2 essays in an hour and 20 minutes. Scary stuff.
So I've taken a break from writing revision notes (last minute I know) but to inform you about this.
Interesting I'm sure.
Anyways everybody with exams, keep your head up, Think Positive.

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Well hey there.
I know I've been going on, and on, and on about exams and now the most important ones are just around the corner.
Many people from all different years, year 10s, 11s,12s and 13s are all preparing for the most important times in their lives.
Everybody tackles exams differently, some are able to breeze through them, revising the night and hour before. Others revise months in advance to make sure they're prepared. Whatever your strategy, remember one thing, it isn't the end of the world. If you fail, there is always the chance of resitting and there are still ample opportunities for those who didn't do fantastically. Yet you should think positively.
 Imagine yourself receiving  your grades and the happiness that fills you upon getting the greatest grades possible. Don't stress yourself too much over exams though, only do the best you can do.
 At the end of the day, you are going to feel better if you know you went into the exam and tried your best. If you don't do fantastically, sometimes life sucks and you shouldn't feel bad one bit. If you succeed, great! You can improve on that next time.
   So everyone sitting exams, good luck! I hope you all get the grades you were looking for.
Good Luck! I know you will be fabulous.

Well hey there.
Yesterday as you may or may not be aware was bank holiday Monday. Now this allows for a day off school, however unluckily for me, I had revision. Not only this but I got called into work. Sad times.
Anyway throughout the day on the radio, there was an official chart of the top 150 highest selling records of the Millennium. Which was somewhat of a trip down memory lane for me.
 150 songs basically from my childhood. Some good, some bad. Some I have on CD, some I haven't heard for about 8 years. Which got me thinking, will we ever forget our generation of music?
Just as the 40's brought about the Jazz kind of music and the 60's/70's brought about rock and roll etc etc, will the noughties which gave us pop and RnB be cast into the shadow of newer,current music.?
I can answer my own question here: yes. But will we forget about the music which shaped our childhoods?
My Nan and Grandad still listen to the music that they danced to when they were courting, my Mum still listens to the music that she went clubbing to when she was my age. But in 10/15 years time will I still occasionally pop on a bit of Shaggy or S club 7, as a bit of a guilty pleasure?
 I loved listening to those songs yesterday for they brought back so many memories and it's scary to think that the new generation of children haven't even heard of S club 7 or Las Ketchup. I don't want to forget the music which I danced to with my late dog in the kitchen of my house at the age of 7, nor do I want to forget the numerous school discos where I slid to the left and criss crossed. Only a 90's child will know this references and unlike the music of the Beatles, Blondie or Terrovision with it's one hit wonder, I don't think our modern music has the lasting and staying power of which it used to.Music in general is dying. In 10 years, how many people will know who Queen were and be able to name 5 songs? In 5 years how many people could sing me a song that Frank Sinatra sang? The answer, not many. They could probably name all of One Direction and Nicki Minaj's songs and maybe the odd Leona Lewis too.
While our modern music, is great and I love it. I don't want to forget the old music which shaped the music of today. It's the music I grew up with and to lose it altogether would be such a great loss. I feel that a new generation of people need to be introduced to the likes of Doris Day, Nat King Cole, Queen and Duran Duran.
Most of you reading this will probably have to use a search engine to find out who I'm on about but for those of you who don't. Thank you for not letting music die.

My twitter friends

Well hey there.
Just thought I'd say, even though I'm meant to be revising I'm typing this blog and skyping my friends Gary, Jess and Kira.
I've never met them but they make me laugh. They are crude yet hilarious and get me.
I feel sorry for Gary, he is just so, how to put it nicely, weird. Anyway I'm hyper so this probably looks like a random load of babble.
I love Jess.... but I could grow to love Kira. I'm not lesbian, but they are just so great.
So yeah, I'm hyper. Must sleep.

It's sad when people who gave you the best memories, become a memory.

Hey there.
As you well know,I've been rather busy with exams and work so as a consequence I've lost my social life.
Now I'm not particularly complaining because it was pretty dismal anyway but what I miss is the friendships that I had before my busy schedule started.
Whilst acting I gained so many friends, people who were like family to me. Yet 9 months after stopping, I've lost contact with virtually all of them, occasionally the odd text here or there but that's about it.
Similarly, my school friends who I spent the "best years of my life" with have become distant. We do different things now and I'd love to spend time catching up, if I had that time in the first place.
My holiday friend is another example, even though we haven't seen each other since my holiday and there is the usual consensus that holiday friendships are fleeting, I thought we could make it last. Yet this similarly has grown to become stilted and awkward. :(
All of the above gave me some great memories and many promised me that those memories wouldn't be the last however as is usually the case when people split and return to their normal lives as such, you grow apart and have less in common that what you thought so friendships become strained.
 It's so refreshing when people make the effort to sustain a friendship, I mean, it's possible. It's got to be.
If not, then I would love to be able to have a friendship where you don't talk for ages, then when you do see each other, it's completely natural and like you'd never been apart.
I love the memories I've gained from these people and I will cherish them forever. They make me smile and after all, smiling is healthy.

Still confused...

Well hey there.
Even though I've been on here for a little while, I'm still so confused as to how to use this... sad times.
On other notes, Exams are coming soon.Wooo! Or not. Dreading them.
I'm imagining results day and I get 2 Bs, an A and a thinking positive. Alot of positivity. Otherwise I will not survive the next week, let alone the exams.
Anyway if you've got exams coming up, Good Luck!
