Everything I’m Saying Goodbye To At The End Of 2017

Hey everyone

I hope you’re all having an amazing day

So today’s post is about being happy and how you can make 2018 a happier year for you. These are a few things that I’m saying bye to because I want to be a happier person, and I think that hearing this and thinking about how it relates to you might help you aswell.

-Forget expectations

I’ve spent the past two years listening. Listening to people go on and on about how I’m too ‘unladylike’; listening to people say untrue things about me and judging me.Nobody has ever been afraid to share their opinions about me, please don’t pity me because I really don’t care about what they think😂The hardest thing about growing up is that you’re supposed to figure out who you are. It’s hard enough with social media but even harder when everyone wants to share their own peanut gallery of thoughts about your life.Tbh I’ve never cared about expectations so why would I start now?

-Friends

Recently I said bye to one of my best friends.And no he isn’t dead.We’ve been friends for roughly two years now.We told each other everything, he was the first person to message me after a panic attack and make sure I was okay and the only person I wanted to rant about Shooter with.He was the first guy I genuinely cared about.When we decided it was better if weren’t friend a anymore it kinda broke me.Our friendship had been and always will be one of the best thing that ever happened to me and even though I wasn’t ready to say goodbye.It was time. I still miss him. I mean if you were trying not to have a panic attack while listening to Marvin’s Room you’d understand that better.What I’m trying to remember through all of this is that even though I’ve had to say goodbye to friends I love, true friendships will always withstand time and distance.

As for the fake ones? I handled them a loooong time ago.

-Stop Holding On To The Past

It’s never easy to let go of the past because it’s what makes you you.You need to understand that whatever happened, whatever memory you’re trying to hold on to, is always gonna be there. Holding on to the past is only stopping you from living in the moment, from creating more amazing memories that you’re gonna look back on and smile about.
Goodbye past, I’ll be sure to visit soon.

-Comparison

You will always live in someone’s shadow if you constantly compare yourself to others. You are your own person. What good will pointing out how Sarah has longer, better looking eyelashes and higher cheekbones do?The first step to getting rid of comparison in your life is self-acceptance.Once you’re more than comfortable in your own skin you can truly start living the girl boss life you want for yourself.
Goodbye comparison you sure weren’t fun and you sure as hell won’t be missed.

-Fearing judgement

Fear can prevent you doing a lot of amazing things. In You Are A Badass, Jen refers to fear as the Big Snooze or BS for short.She’s completely right, fear is pressing the snooze button on all your dreams, It’s stopping you from achieving everything you have ever wanted to achieve.So I’m gonna challenge you to challenge one of your fears in 2018, do something you’ve never done before because you were scared.

2017 IN PICTURES//BLOGMAS

This is it. It’s been a hell of year, no doubt.But as I say goodbye to some of the best memories of my short existence, life carries on. It’s the start of something new, something big is stirring but that doesn’t mean I can’t reminisce about the most unforgettable and wild year so far. So instead of me trying to put my thoughts into words: I’ll show you.

2017 MOODBOARD

Dont ask about the peach😂😂I know that some of you will get some of the things on here, and others won’t but I don’t wanna explain anything in this post.Every single one of those images represents something so much bigger than the tiny images you see,it’s memories with friends, and feelings, and mood swings, and tears, it’s quotes and goals…but it’s all me.86a0bde67f0696abcf6e7bc0261871b7.jpg

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😄

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.

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😂
