Sorry guys… I haven’t been posting lately and as you’ve probably guessed it’s because I have been really busy. I performed in my first theatre show 2 weeks ago and it went very well! I had a monologue to do and everything and we got great feedback from the audience. My close friend came on the second night when we were performing the show and he said that he was vey impressed. He said it was like seeing another side of me because I’m usually quite shy in real life. The show really pushed me to my limits and actually made me realise that there was more to me than meets the eye. Yesterday, I was also invited by one of the producers to join a drama workshop they are holding in 2 weeks. I’ve really enjoyed doing these projects and they take my mind away from all the schoolwork I have to do and they’re fun!
I hope you had a great Easter because I was having a great time!☺️I stayed with my mum and brother in Manchester during the Easter holiday, it was great seeing them again. We went all out for Easter, my mum made so much food and we had some of our family members over as well. Even though it was Easter holiday, I was doing a lot of revision because I have my first exam in 6 weeks. I have to start revising especially soon because for 2/3 of my subjects, I’m going to be tested on ALL of last years and this years topics😢I have 3 mock exams next week as well, so I have to be prepared for those. Hopefully after my exams, I will get the chance to post more regularly and start doing more music/TV/Film posts!
I hope you guys have a great weekend!☺️
This weeks songs are:
1) Twenty One Pilots – Fake You Out
Twenty One Pilots are an alternative hip hop band from Ohio, America. Fake You Out was the first song that I heard from this great band and I instantly fell in love with it. The band was formed in 2009 and consists of drummer, Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph. I love the deep meaning in this song and how teenagers of this generation can relate to the lyrics. The singer believes that he can’t live up to the expectations of society and even the people who think they’re closest to him, can’t help him out. Alternatively, this song could be about God and how he can’t see what God sees in him. Check out this great song below:

2) Clean Bandit – Extraordinary ft. Sharna Bass
Clean Bandit are an Electronic group from Cambridge, England who are commonly known for their song Rather Be featuring Jess Glynne. Sharna Bass provides the vocals for this song and this is the fifth single in their debut studio album, New Eyes (2014). I really like Sharna’s vocals in this song mostly beacuse she uses her original North-West London accent rather than putting on an American accent like some singers. The music video was filmed in Cuba and this song reached no.5 on the UK’s singles chart in 2014. Check out this good song below:

3) Robbie Williams – Bodies
Bodies was realised in October 2009 by the British recording artist, Robbie Williams. This song also appears on his eighth studio album, Reality Killed the Video Star (2014) and it reached no.2 in the UK’s singles chart in 2009. This song describes the journey through Williams’ career and his change in his views on religion. He starts the song off by saying “God gave me the sunshine” which shows that he believes in God however by the end of the song his view changes. Check out this song below:

Meeting my best friends Sarah and Zara was one of the best things that have happened this year. I hadn’t seen Sarah since our leaver’s ceremony in year 11 and Zara since the beginning of this year, so it was great catching up and talking about sixth form and college with each other whilst eating at our favourite restaurant: Nandos. We went to this great desert restaurant afterwards and the ice cream I had tasted like HEAVEN! I also ate some of Sarah’s pancakes as well as Zara’s cocktail which were both delicious! I spent the last 15 minutes, in that restaurant, munching on the ice in Zara’s cocktail because if there’s one thing I love…it’s ICE. We spent the last few minutes together taking selfies and walking around town and we definitely agreed on meeting up before summer ends. Overall, it just felt like old times, lord knows how much I had missed them.
Sunday was the last time I was going to see Moyo before leaving to go to back to Manchester, so we said our last goodbyes, promising each other that we’d still stay in touch. I’m going to really miss that guy. When I arrived at the coach station on Monday, I was so worried that I had missed my coach but thankfully the coach I was supposed to get on was only 20 minutes late. The whole 6 hr journey to Manchester wasn’t too bad however, I pissed off one of the passengers on the second coach because I accidentally sat on her seat! I honestly didn’t know that the seat was taken but when she came back from the toilet she just looked at me and said “EXCUSE ME, THAT IS MY SEAT!”. LOL. I’m thinking “Why you so loud for??”. What’s even worse is that I had to sit next to her for the rest of the journey beacuse all the other seats were taken. When I reached the Manchester coach station I could see my mum’s head trying to find me in the coach since we got to Manchester 30 minutes late. My mum got a mad beacuse I forgot to give her a hug but it was only beacuse my suitcase was so heavy and I was practically dragging it across the floor. We got a taxi back to my uncles house and I have to say that it was so awkward, not beacuse of the taxi driver (he was really sweet), but beacuse my mum kept telling him that we were going to move to Manchester, find a house here and how she was so excited to move up north beacuse the houses are cheaper. I was just sitting because we didn’t discuss this decision properly, I really don’t want to move to Manchester and I’m going to be in year 13 next year so I don’t want to move school. I was surprised by the statements she had said in the taxi because I didn’t know that everything had been finalised. I asked my mum whether we were definitely moving to Manchester and she said that she still wasn’t sure. I’ve enjoyed staying at my Uncles, this week, but I keep getting confronted by the fact that I’m not girly enough *sigh*. Anyway, the Rio Olympics opening is tonight, well technically tomorrow for people who live in the UK because it starts at midnight, but I’m looking forward to it and I hope you are excited as much as I am for the Olympics. Have a great weekend everyone!
