My 1 year Blogiversary is here!

I can’t believe that it has been a whole year since I set up my blog and made my first post, this is insane! Not gonna lie, I sprinted for my laptop when I realised what day it was, but never the less here is my anniversary celebration post.

In the past year I have made 55 blog posts, this being my 56th. I know it isn’t as impressive as other people who have – by some sorcery ish – managed to blog everyday (I know my blog frequency is a mess, I swear I’ll try and blog more often), but this is huge to me. I cannot believe I’ve written that many on my page.

I went back and looked at my blog posts and it seems the most popular posts were…

By views – “GCSE Results”

By Likes – “Product Review” and “How to Keep a Clear Completion” with 12 likes

(BTW i will be doing a skincare blog again as my skincare routine is different now)

By Comments – “Leavers Assembly” with 13 comments, just beating “My Social Medias”

I am so thankful to everyone who has commented, liked, or even just read my posts. I honestly can’t praise enough how grateful I am to you guys. You could be spending your time doing anything else, you could be reading someone else’s blog who is way better at this than I am, but you decided to click on my posts and I can’t put int words how great that makes me feel.

I have learned so much from WordPress. I have learned not to judge people by first impressions as they aren’t always true and you have no idea what those people are going through. I’ve met some amazing people and made friends from doing this. I have become part of an amazing community.

Blogging makes me happy and I don’t know what I’d do without it.

Well, I guess that’s all I have to say for this post. I hope you’re having a great day, and I will see you next time.

It’s Christmas!

Well guys, my Christmas holiday has officially started, my last day of college was today, and there was a Christmas fair going on. I went to a Rollaskating disco where I was the only one who didn’t fall on my ass, attempted to stay on a rodeo bull and made a batch of chocolate orange scones. I had a free bacon sandwich from the restaurant and everyone was dressed up in wacky costumes, from a traffic cone to a sumo wrestler to a pink lady. I dressed in a day of the dead onsie.

I think over the Christmas I’ll do some Christmasy blogs that are jolly and fun.

Merry Christmas!

Bored

Sup guys! I am bored AF right now, got into college about half an hour ago, and my first lesson isn’t till 11:15 which is about an hour or so away.
Literally been sitting in the bathroom doing my makeup for ages and I still have loads of time left.
Way too cold to go outside. Frost everywhere!
I guess I just thought blogging would help pass the time, idk.
I am planning to possibly do another makeup blog this weekend as I haven’t done one in a while, maybe Christmasy themed? So keep an eye out for that.
I guess that’s all for now guys!

College Life so Far

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and this post is pretty simple as I am up to my eyeballs in college work, but anyways enjoy.

College has been really fun so far. I have a locker now which is really handy and last week our order of uniforms finally came in. I have; 

  • 2 dark red buttoned up chef jackets
  • 2 butcher aprons (which are basically dark blue apron with vertical white stripes)
  • 1 white apron which wear when we serve the food in our bistro to the customers every Tuesday
  • Some black elasticated trousers
  • 1 pair of steel capped shoes look like dark blue trainers

So far only 4 people out of 12 in the class have annoyed me which is actually good for me because usually everyone annoys me. 1 guy though really pissed me off today. He’s so loud and obnoxious and he’s always talking about all the parties he goes to every night. Today he was bragging about how he pulled 4 girls last night. One day I’m going to snap at him and it ain’t gonna be pretty. He doesn’t even wanna be on the course and he’s hardly ever there. And 1 of his stupid friends kept asking for my number and didn’t know the meaning of personal space. Other than that the course is great.

That’s all for now guys!

Twitter

I have to admit, this is my first time using Twitter, I did set up an account before but I literally never used it. However, I have now set up a new account so I can now tweet to my heart’s content. My username is…

PLEASE NOTE that there is no letter e in the word blue in my username, I had to get rid of one letter as the username was too long.

Instagram

This is my first time using Instagram as well, I’ve only ever used Facebook and Snapchat before, but I will not be sharing them accounts with you as I am anonymous, so I would like to keep them private. Anyhoo, my account name is…

First Day of College!

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and I’ve just had my first day of College! So yeah, I’m officially a college student now.

When I got up in the morning I knew it was my first day but it didn’t feel like my first day, if you get what I mean. I thought I would get butterflies or feel super excited. Don’t get me wrong, I was excited, but it just felt like another ordinary day.

I finally got to meet my entire class and to be honest I couldn’t ask for better classmates, they are all so nice and friendly to each other and for once no one is picking fights or slagging each other off. Everyone gets along so we’ll be able to work as a strong team together. The only way my class could be better is if all of my friends that i like from school were in there with me, but they’re not fussed on catering which is okay.

When I got there we spent the first couple hours discussing what we’ll do over the course of the year and my teacher Kevin showed us how to use all the appliances in the kitchen and what to do in the event of an emergency.

We won’t start on our timetable until next Monday because on our first week it’s more easy going and fun. 

Over the course of the week there will be stalls in different places as this week is the beginners fair. The stalls give you a bunch of free stuff which is cool, and me and my classmates are having a little contest to see who can get the most free stuff. There are 5 different places to eat in the college and that is where they set them up. Today there were three stalls in the restaurant, on Thursday it’ll be the coffee shop and tomorrow it’s “the zone”. Today one stall had free pasty’s and sausage rolls, pasty pens, pasty shaped bottle openers and these squishy rubber pasties that you can play with if your bored or stressed. Basically a stress ball, but a pasty in this case. The second stall was just them mini chocolate and sugar ring doughnuts that you can get in Sainsbury’s supermarket, and the third stall was full of strange fruit and veg like dragon fruit, black garlic that looks like leeches and these lychi fruits that you get in Chinese restaurants. Let’s just say that free stuff, especially food, is my favourite moto.

As I’m the only one in my class who got a C in Maths and English and everyone else has to redo it, before lunch while the others were upstairs doing an assessment I had some time to do what I wanted. I used this time to wonder the corridors and have a look around. I didn’t go and look at any of the small buildings, I just stuck to the main block, but it’s quite big so I had plenty to explore.

At lunch I had a free pasty but I was still hungry so I bought a cheeseburger from the diner with my new classmate Louise and then me and the others had a wonder around. I have actually discovered that one of them has their birthday on the same day as me. We were both born on the 3rd August 2000 which is insane! We’re only a few hours apart. Me and him really hit it off. After we were walking back to class after a whole year assembly in the theatre we just talked and talked. I mentioned that I was a little anxious about being in a class with no one I know and he said jokily, and I quote “well we seem to be getting on really well. Us and our bro-mance”. That made me laugh. 

I can’t wait for tomorrow! We’re making checkered cakes, bread, biscuits and each person is doing a different flavoured scone. I’m doing cinnamon and apple.

That’s all for now guys! Viola over and out xxx

My GCSE Results

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and this post was delayed purely so I could talk about my results.

I wasn’t too stressed in the morning as I’d already accepted that I’d failed and I was going to spend the rest of my life living in a box, but when we were outside waiting for the teachers to open the doors the anticipation was slowly killing me.

My 3 friends Charlie, James and Becca went up first and got theirs and I followed. It was pretty hard to register that I was holding in my hands what would be the grades that  will carry to my name for the rest of my days. Anyways, here they are.

English Language = C (I’ve known about this grade since Christmas)

ECDL (GCSE in computing) = B (I’ve known this since Easter)

English Literature = C

Maths = C

Biology = C

Chemistry = C

Physics = C

Dance = D (2 marks off a C, getting remarked to see if I can get that C)

Geography = D

AS Creative Writing = E (1 mark off a D so is also getting remarked)

Averall I’m happy with my results. I was gobsmacked that I managed to get a C in every Science subject. As you may know I hated Biology and i was not good at it at all. I kept getting E’s and F’s in the mock papers so it must of been a fluke that I pasted. Physics was OK but I could never learn anything as the boys kept messing around so the teacher had to stop every 5 minutes to get them to shut up. I had to teach myself the entire subject again so I could get up to scratch and thankfully that paid off. I was better at Chemistry than the other 2 but on the last mock before the exam I got an F so I have no idea how I got that C.

I am super relieved that I got a C in Maths. Now I never have to do that subject again. 

The mock for creative writing was super easy and I got a B in it so I didn’t worry about that subject too much but when I went in the real exam it was much more difficult than I was expecting which is why I screwed up and got an E. But I’m not sad. I chose to do that subject as an extra little GCSE so I haven’t lost anything, I just haven’t gained anything so it’s not too bad. I’m not disappointed.

I know my results aren’t as impressive compared to other people who got A*’s but I’m happy. Though I was a bit sad when one of my relatives pointed out that my sister got A’s , B’s and C’s and all I got was C’s, D’s and an E, but im okay. I’m happy.

Summer FunFun

Hey guys! It’s your girl Viola, and yesterday I went to Weston-Super-Mare!

As the weather was so nice me and Sophie decided to go on a lovely day out with our Granddad and enjoy the Summer sun while it lasts. It was a bit busy but it was amazing. We had a look at the shops, we had a drink and a cake in a cafe for lunch then we walked along the front.

The best part was the Grand Pier, I love it in there. The fair was also in town so we went on a few rides there as well, including a roller coaster called Mouse Trap.

I want to live in Weston when I’m older, it’s 3 times better than the town I live in.
