Give a brief story on how your blog started:
I used to own an Instagram account dedicated to the TV show Charmed because I loved the show so much. I decided to create a blog about Charmed but then one day I decided I wanted to do more with my blog. I decided I was going to start writing about my personal life, music and films. I wrote my first post on school and came up with the idea of music Monday.

1. Don’t pressure yourself to blog all the time and a lot in a short space of time. Blogging should be something you enjoy and it’s OK to take a break now and then

Finally, I have a bit of a break from school! Although, I have lots of homework to do, a presentation to complete and I need to start preparation for the real exam. I’ve completed my biology homework which took some time and I’ve still got to complete my presentation on Scottish identity for media studies. I don’t really know why I picked Scottish identity because for one of our case studies in media studies we have to explore the identity of a group of people or a place. I’m the only one in my class doing a place but I’ve always found Scotland quite interesting. I’ve got mocks coming up in Easter for all my subjects which is fun🙄 but these exams are really good practice for the real exams in June so their not pointless or unbeneficial.
I finished Harry and Potter and the Deathly Hallows on Saturday and it feels so strange not having anything to read. The books were soo good, if you haven’t read the book, I really advice that you do even if you’ve seen the films. I’m think of rereading all the books or maybe the 3rd, 4th and 6th book because those are my favourites. I probably wont reread then anytime soon because I’m concentrating on studying.
This week has gone pretty slowly in my opinion, but like I said, I’m glad it’s half term and I can have a bit of a rest. Even my head of sixth form said we should have a break because when we come back, there’s going to be a lot of work and revision to do. We have about 13 weeks (excluding holidays) of school before our exams!
I hope you guys have been having a good week and please tell me what you’ve been up to☺️
If you guys remember, I had my first theatre audition on the 21st January. It was in London, I live just outside London, which led to me getting three trains to the location. I was very nervous at first but when I met the producer, writer and other auditioners, I felt really relaxed! The audition was made up of a mix of activities and towards the end of the audition we discussed what ideas we had for the theme of the upcoming show about education. Overall, the audition was really relaxed and they were really looking for people who can contribute to the production and bring new ideas.
Last Tuesday I got an e-mail that I have a place to join the company!🎭 They sent me the session dates and I am sooo excited! I went to the first session on Tuesday and I had a great time. The majority of the session was about getting to know each other and doing some activities to get us more comfortable in the environment. What was really great was that we came up with a set of values that we should all follow such as respecting one another, being kind, respecting another’s opinions and ideas etc. It was crazy to realise that people in my audition didn’t make it and the producer said that we must have really impressed them in our auditions if we got a place in the company! This also means that I’m in the company for a year and I can get involved in the next three shows without auditioning😊
I received my mock results today and I am pretty pleased with my results. I got:
Media Studies: C
I’m not really bothered about my media studies results because the questions that came up where ones that we haven’t done in class. My Media teacher said that we should ignore the grade because we hadn’t studied the topics😂 I’m really happy with my Biology grade, I honestly thought I was going to get an E or D. I am ecstatic about getting a A in psychology because that was the grade I was most nervous about because I thought the mock was way too hard!
I’ve had quite a busy and good week overall, but I have a lot of homework to do this weekend.
I hope you guys have had a great week and please comment below what you’ve been up to!
As you guys know, I’ve been reading the Harry Potter Books and there are some magical transportation that I would love to take on a joy ride. If, in real life, you’d like to hire a car, why don’t you check out the car rental company Turo!
5) Hogwarts Express
All Harry Potter fans wished they had received their acceptance letter from Hogwarts. The Hogwarts Express transported Harry to one of the only places he called home, Hogwarts, and even though there might not be there much magical about a train, I would really like to experience the ride to Hogwarts.
Even though I know I won’t be able to see Thestrals, they strike me as very interesting creatures. Being only seen by people who’ve seen death, I’d love to fly up to places on these invisible but amazing creature.
Everyone knows that Harry Potter’s favourite mode of transport is riding a broomstick. Flying came quite natural to Harry however, I believe that broomsticks might not be might my favourite magical transport due to my fear of heights and I’d imagine it can be quite uncomfortable on your backside. However, the thought of riding on a broomstick and playing Quidditch excites me!
2) The Knight Bus
The Knight Bus sounds like the most fun magical transportation in this list, the ride may not be as smooth, however I love the fact that you can ride the Knight bus in muggle streets without muggles having an clue that a triple-decker bus is travelling over 100mph!
1) Flying Ford Anglia
Literally being just a flying car, I can visualise myself using the flying Ford Anglia to travel to any destination, school, work etc. Not only can you avoid traffic but with the invisibility button (working), no one would be able to see you. I think I would experience the smoothest ride on the flying Ford Anglia and I can say goodbye to waiting for trains and Bus’s!
I hope you guys like my list, please tell me what other modes of transport from pop culture you’d like to ride and don’t forget to check out the car rental page by Turo.
Today was the last day I had to finish and render my opening sequence of my documentary for media. I’ve told you guys before that for media studies I’m making an opening sequence to a documentary about how the representation of ethnic minorities in the media affect young people. I’ve finished editing it and I have finally handed it to my teacher and I’m quite glad to say that I’m quite proud of it. I know I said I would show you guys but it’s on one of the school network folders and hopefully I’ll upload it to my blog next week. I’d really like to have you guys opinion on it so, expect an opening sequence to a document on my blog next week!
I’ve had such a good week, I’m nearly haflway through reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and I’m enjoying it very much so far. I was quite a bit annoyed at Harry at the beginning of the book because of the way he treated his friends but I still love Harry☺️ if you were wondering, my favourite character is Hermione because she is hardworking, sometimes insensitive but she has everyone’s best interest at heart. Also, she is very loyal to Harry, who’s your favourite character is the books? I’ve been talking about Harry Potter a lot lately but I love the movies and this is the first time I’m reading the books and I knew I was going to love it!
I’ve got my audition tomorrow!… and I feel pretty relaxed. I haven’t been to this theatre before in London and I hardly know my way around London however, I know the route and in all honesty I’m quite excited. I haven’t been to a proper audition before and this will be a great experience. I know I sound confident now but I know when I get there I will be so nervous but I know that I will be fine haha😂 If you have any advice for me PLEASE TELL ME because it would be great!😂
I hope you guys have been having a great week and please tell me what you’ve been up to!
I’m so glad that my mock exams are over, overall I found them OK and we have to wait until February to get our results back. It’s going to be like how we’d open our results in the real results day such as our grades are going to be in an envelope. I think that people who do Biology are going to our marks back in class however, we are going to get our actual grades in February. The mocks especially Psychology was harder than I thought it would be and AQA (the exam board) are making the exam seven harder than ever before. I’m happy that I don’t have to revise for a bit until my Easter mock exams!
I have finished reading the first 3 Harry Potter books and I’ve enjoyed reading all of them but Pisoner of Azkaban is my favourite, it’s soooo good and I think JK Rowling is a genius!☺️ one thing I’ve noticed is that Prisoner of Azkaban is the most dissimilar to the movies so far but, Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite film as well. I’ve read the first 3 chapters of Godblet of Fire and I like so far. I love the Harry Potter universe and a couple of weeks ago I did the quiz that puts in you in one of the four houses in Hogwarts and I was put in Gryffindor which I’m quite proud of!
It’s hard to imagine that I’ve got only got 5 months left of sixth form until I leave school and go off to uni. I’ve had so many memories at this school…
Welcome, lovely people, to 2017! 2016 has been a crazy year and I hope you have had a good year too. I spent the holidays with my mum and brother and other family members in Manchester. I had a great time, my mum made so much food on Christmas and It was so nice to see them again after 3 months. I spent New Years at church, where we waited like an hour to get the bus and to be honest we were on the verge of going home. I really enjoyed the church service but I was really upset that I had to leave in 2 days. I had a marvelouse time and I can’t wait to see them soon again.
I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been so busy! I’ve had to revise for my mock exams through the holidays and they start next Tuesday. I’ve been doing LOTS of revision each day and most of it was spent doing biology revision because I have a lot of topics to get through for my exam. I’ve also read 2 Harry Potter books while I was with my family which was great. One of my friends in my tutor group today said that she found the exam hard (she did in yesterday) and she is a very smart girl, so I really do hope I do well in the exam on Tuesday.
My audition for a drama theatre in London is in 2 weeks and think I am prepared. By prepared I mean that I’m hoping for the best! I haven’t had much time to practice but I’m still going to go for the experience and just to have fun as well. I hope you guys have had a great start to 2017 and I’ll see you guys next week.
