Summer Time Ball 

Hey, guys I’m back and will be updating more regularly! I’ve got a few pre-written blog posts that I’m going to post so keep your eyes peeled! Here’s the first one from the 10th of June where I attended Summer Time Ball at Wembley Stadium. 
So this Saturday was Capitals Summer Time Ball with Vodafone, which was the perfect break between my first and second set of exams. I’ve been to Summer Time Ball 3 years in a row, this being my 3rd year and Capital never disappoints! 

This year it was just two of us who managed to make our way up to London on coach to see all the amazing acts that Vodafone and Capital were able to get lined up to perform this year. The headliner being Bruno Mars, who was incredible and performed songs from his new album 24k Magic and a few old songs like ‘When Was Your Man’! He was insane and definitely got the crowd hyped with his jazzy shoulder pops and his energy. There were so many amazing performers like Shawn Mendes, Stormzy, Zara Larsson, Little Mix, Rag ‘n Bone Man and Liam Payne just to name a few. I have to say my favourite act had to be Dua Lipa, she has a way of holding people and her songs are fun to dance too. 

Concerts for me have always been a safe haven, a place where you go to have fun and see your favourite acts perform and be surrounded by people who are there for the exact same reason. Anyone who knows me, knows that I live for concerts just the environment of concerts and the excitement of going to see someone you’ve supported live it just brings so much light and happiness to my life. And enlight of recent events in both London and Manchester, the people at Capital dedicated it to both those attacks and the people affected by them. I have to say that this year the security really stepped up, with the scanners and pat downs and checking people’s bags as well as the police patrolling as people left the stadium to ensure everyone was safe.

Overall the Saturday was amazing and you can watch all of the acts on the Capital Website or on their SUMMERTIME BALL 2017 Playlist. To anyone who wants to go to a festival or something with different acts I recommend Summer Time Ball next year!

Last Day of High School 

Friday, 17th of June 2017. I’ve finished, that’s it high school is over! Those 5 years flow by so quickly, from first starting school being so scared to move up to a big school and only having a few friends to being in my final year stressing about GCSEs and prom.It was definitely a difficult day for everyone, whether they realised it or not. I think for me it was more difficult leaving the teachers that supported me and stuck by me for 5 years and being able to see my friends everyday and being surrounded by people I know everyday. I’m excited for future prospects, to go to college and meet new people who want to study the course and are interested in it. 

(K + L – February 2016)(The OG’s- March 2016)(Post 5SOS w/ Tal- May 2016) (ICT before Summer- July 2016) (Freedom Festival- September 2017) (Blood Brothers in York- November 2016)(New Years Party- 2017) (Minion Party- March 2017) (East Park on the Last Day- June 2017) 

The past 5 years been a rollercoaster of mixed emotions. I mean when you look back at the petty arguments and how upset you got over the smallest things it seems so stupid, like I remember being in Year 7 and falling out with someone I thought was my best friend over a red pen,like how stupid is that? I’ve grown so much as person while being at that school, I’ve gone from being the shy kid who sat at the back of the class to someone who’s secure with themselves and knows what they want and don’t want from life. I have experienced being surrounded by people who just put you down and just aren’t about what you’re about and I’ve got rid of the toxic people in my life and gained people that love and support me.

I also have to give a major shout out to the teachers who made sure I got through my GCSES without a complete meltdown and reassuring me that I would be able to make it. Though there were a few subjects that I definitely wish I could avoid, there were also subjects that I loved and that was because of the teachers. So I want to thank them putting in an effort to make the lessons enjoyable and looking out for me, making sure I understood what I needed to do and was confident going into my exams. I cannot express how thankful I am for everything they’ve done for me, and I hope they know I appreciate them. 

(RE – around March 2016) 

For everyone still in high school, my only advice is don’t stress out to much or be afraid to be yourself! Take a break and just enjoy the moments because before you know it, it’ll all be over and you’ll be moving on to the next stage of your life. 

Also I know your teachers make out as if your exams are the be all or end all but they’re not, you’ll get into college and you’ll have a life just do your best! That’s all you can do, that’s all they can ask for and whatever happens at the end of it know that you’ve done all you can do and that you should be proud of yourself because those grades do not define who you are! 

And if you are stressing out of feel like you need someone to talk to, please find someone, your teachers are there to help you and so are your friends don’t let it all build up and get to much for you! Please be aware that there are many forms of help like  anti- bullying and Mind which helps with mental health support. Your heads of year, your form tutors, in my school there was a school nurse and teachers specifically there to talk to if you felt you needed too. Please just make sure your mental health is a priority and if you see someone who’s been looking sad and is not being themselves, check in on them especially during exam time.

Finally, thank you to all the people who have come in and out of my life all I want  for you is love, happiness and success. We all made it through 5 years of what we all at some point considered the worst years of our lives and stripping as our only option, I’m kidding…..Only slightly. We’ve done it! 2012- 2017!

New Years Resolutions.

Hey,first blogpost of 2017! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

I feel like having New Years resolution is so overrated but I do it every year without avail. The thing about New Years resolutions is that you forget half the list of things you eanted to accomplish half way through the year, or at least I do and then you haven’t exactly done what you set out to do. This year I’m planning on sticking to them and working hard to keep up with everything ( definitely don’t say that every year) and I feel like writing a blog post about what I want to do will help with mainting it.

1. Spend less money 

Okay, first on my New Years resolutions list is to spend less money on useless things. I basically spent the whole of last year forking out cash on things I didn’t really need or use which was a waste, most of my money actually went on food when I could’ve ate at home and saved a £5 to put to something work while.

2. Do more stuff with the girls

Last year, I went through a difficult time and had to switch up friendship groups because my old friends just weren’t what I needed in my life anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I loved them and we still talk they just weren’t the right people for me. The people I’m friends with now are so supportive of each other, we all look out for one another and respect each other which I think is important. So my goal this year is to do more things with them like cute little movie nights every so often or going out for a cheeky Nandos just to keep all together.

3. Eat Healtheir and go to the gym

I know, I know this is everyone’s resolution but I’m giving it a whirl. This isn’t like “I’m never going to eat McDonald’s again” because that would be a crime, I basically fund the franchise. This is just eating healthier meals more often then I did last year and still having the occasional unhealthy meals. Going to gym is also something I want to give a try,but I’m going to work at my own pace and do my own thing otherwise I know I’m going to hate it and that’s not what I want. Who knows I might take a liking to gym time?  

4.Be more organised 

Anyone who knows me knows I’m the biggest procrastinator, I lave things till the very last minute and then get a stress on because everything piles on. This is my GCSE year, I need to get my head on straight and knuckle down because if I don’t exam results day isn’t going to be fun. 4 months isn’t long when you think about it, time flies when you’re walking towards the pits of tons of exam papers, no sleep and tears of despair. At least if I’m organised, my life won’t seem as messy and I’ll be able to do get things I need done and have fun.

5. Go on more trips

2016 was boring for me, I had this idea that I was going to do so much more and it never happens so this year I actually want to do stuff like go to concerts or spend days out in different areas of the UK. I absolutely hate staying in one place, it bores me. The four main things I want to do is to go to see more people in concert because I love concerts and live music so much . To go to festivals, something I’ve been dying to do for ages and just haven’t been able to but I’m hoping this year I will- Also have you seen the line up for Coachella it looks sick. Why wasn’t I born rich and in LA?I want to spend a week in London or Newquay with a few friends after my exams are done and during the summer before college starts. And the last is jsut little trips to like Blackpool Pleasre Beach, Doncaster Dome, shopping in Leeds and stuff like that. I think Hull is stepping up its game a little bit here with the City Of Culture thing.

5. Love yourself 

I think I need to focus more on myself this year and do things that will make me happy rather than doing what everyone else is doing. Like make time for your friends and family but have a little me time too. Sleep in,don’t change out of your pyjamas for three days.Me times, good time. The whole “new year, new me” thing has never really appealed to me. I’ve seen a lot of “this is Year of self love” on my Twitter and I 100% agree. All I’m going to say is be you and love you. I’m going to do more for myself to make this year better. Who cares what other people think? In the words of Labrinth “Express yourself” and in the words of me “Take no shit, do you boo”. New Year, new me? More like New Year, same but more self improved me. 

6. Skin care

I’m so bad at taking care of myself and my body yet I complain all the time about how I terrible my skin is. My goal this year is to keep up with my skin care routine, like doing a face mask once a week and actually drinking more water. I also want to try Nip + Fab because they’re supposed to be amazing for teenage skin and these black heads need to go. 

7. Be more dedicated to this blog

I feel like I’ve been so lazy on here and haven’t updated much but I want to do more and write more. Obviously I have got my exams and they are important so updates are going to be scarce but after that I’ve got a long break to do more stuff and so I’ll have more to update you on.
Okay so those are my resolutions. 2016 was a pants year so I hope you’ve all had a wonderful few days into the new year and continue to enjoy 2017! If you want to keep in the loop follow my socials. Lots of love -K
