Moving Out (My 17th Birthday)

Moving Out (My 17th Birthday)

Woo!🎉 Today I turn 17 years old although, I had to wake up at 2 am so my family could catch a coach to the Victoria coach station to go to Manchester. The whole journey took about 7 hours. We’ll be currently living at my Uncles until we find another place to live in and I could potentially be missing quite a few days of school because Manchester is about 4hr away from where my school is. Me missing school isn’t necessarily too bad because we only have 2 weeks of school left however, we’re starting a big project in Biology and starting to write our UCAS application for university which I don’t want to miss out on.  

To be honest, I really can’t believe I’m 17. I can get my drivers license like one of my closest friends has and then I can get a car. My Uncle in America last year said that he’d pay for my first car when I turn 18, so I really hope he keeps his promise! Ultimately he became one of my favourite Uncles because he bought me my iPhone 6 and my brother’s iPad mini. 

Another thing that is speacial about today is that it is Swoozies birthday!! He’s one of my favourite, if not favourite, YouTubers and it’s awesome to share the same birthday as him. If you don’t know who he is, check out his YouTube channel here: He does videos and animations in funny stories (which is mostly about girls) and life experiences. I wished him a happy birthday on Twitter so I hope he sees my tweet! 

I hope you guys have been having a wonderful day and please comment what you’ve been up to😊🎉🎈

I am so excited right now because it’s my birthday of Sunday and I’ll be turning 17!☺️🎉🎈 Although it might not be a great time to celebrate my 17th birthday because my family are currently preparing to move out of our current flat. It was quite a surprise when I found out we were moving out 3 weeks ago even though I knew my mum didn’t like how small our home was and the way things always broke e.g.the taps. Last year we were moving from our old house to the place we’re still currently in and we’ve only been in our current home for around 10 months, so not even year. I’ve moved houses several times throughout secondary school but this this the first time I’ve lived at a place for under a year. The main reason why my mum decides to move is due to the cost of houses especially when you live in an affluent area like the town I live in.

It’s hard when you’re a single mother, who has to provide for 2 kids especially when you live in a pretty posh town. We would have moved to Manchester last year if it wasn’t for my A-Levels but right now my mum is seriously considering moving to Manchester which is 4 hours away. I’m glad we’re not going to Manchester because I would miss my friends way too much. The main reason why we aren’t moving to Manchester now is because I’ll be going to university next year and I’ve already started the university application in school and she doesn’t want to do anything that could stop that process.

I’ve not really told my friends about the reasons why my family move houses a lot, I usually say it’s because “We want to move to a bigger house” or “My mum didn’t really like our last house, things just kept breaking”, these reasons were somewhat true but I didn’t want to tell them that it was because we couldn’t afford the rent or eviction. I’m not a person who really shares personal information about myself or share information about my home life because sometimes I’m unsure of how I feel about it myself. Most of my friends have lived the same home all their lives and even though I know that moving houses is common, when you do it too many times it starts to have negative effects on you.  I don’t really talk to my friends about things that are happening at home for several reasons but I just getting away from it by spending time with them.

I hope you guys have been having an awesome week so please comment below on what you’ve been up to. Also, I’ve been thinking of maybe doing a Q&A blog post so please tell me what you think about that!

Have an awesome weekend guys,

Omone 🙂
