Life changes, amazing holidays, great new friends and plenty of obsessions (c'mon, this is me we're talking about) -- a look back on my 2018

*Jumps into view amid a shower of confetti* Greetings, fellow Earthlings!!

I know I'm pretty late, but I just wanted to say I hope you all had an amazing Christmas!! And if you don't celebrate Christmas, then I hope you're having an awesome holiday season!! *throws more confetti*

So because the year is coming to a close (2019 is two days away HELP HELP ABORT MISSION ABORT ABORT I'M SORRY BUT WHO AUTHORISED THIS THIS ISN'T FAIR) I'm going to be looking back on the highlights of the year! 2018 was pretty crazy for me, with a LOT of change going on in my life, but it was actually a pretty good year for me now I look back on it, and I want to share the most significant moments of it with you guys!

Some of these are huge, important things that happened in my life; others may seem pretty insignificant to anyone who's not me, but that still impacted my life in meaningful ways. So anyway, let's get going!




In chronological order: 

- I turned sixteen! My birthday.…

SNIPPETS!! i.e. a post where I throw a load of snippets from my current WIP at you and then run before anyone can come after me

So I am in fact not dead and actually alive!! Wow! Who'd have thought it!! I guess miracles really do happen

Let's just ignore the fact that I haven't posted anything on here in like a month and that I don't have enough time to plan out and write a proper blog post anymore so I'm just going to lump together a bunch of snippets from my current WIP, throw them at you, and run like hell before you all come chasing after me demanding to know why I haven't posted in so long, enjoy kids

First things first, I created a Pinterest mood board for my WIP! I'm pretty proud of it if I do say so myself, check it out here (also maybe follow me on Pinterest if you haven't already? I mainly save memes and shit on there but I do occasionally create something vaguely aesthetic, so idk).

Also, just wanna say that I'm wayy more active on Instagram these days than I am on my blog (well, duh, I haven't posted anything here in aeons), so you should check it out! It'…

"Dreamers" // A thing that is meant to be a persuasive speech but is more like the ramblings of a lunatic (or a dreamer)

So I wrote this Thing for my English language class at school - it's meant to be a persuasive speech. I was going to do a different topic to this, I'd made a plan for it in school with the different techniques I'd use and everything, but when I sat down to actually write it I realised that I didn't actually have much to say about my first topic (I'm not really as passionate about it as I first thought), and I was really inspired to write something on this other topic. So me being the maverick I am, I scrapped my first topic and all the planning I'd made for it, and jumped straight into this new one. 
I... can't even say how much I loved writing this. I loved it so much. It's an idea that's been going round my head for a while now, and actually putting into words, actually turning it into something that I can share with the rest of the world, meant so much to me. I just sat down and let the words flow and it was the best feeling.
I'm going to hav…

The Bibliophile Sweater Tag!! ft. a lot of rambling and shrieking and unleashing my inner fangirl (I mean this is the quality content you guys follow me for, right)

Hey peoples!!

I is back, and I is back with a tag!! Exciting, right?? Everyone, let's cheer!!

Me: *cheers*

Everyone else: *doesn't cheer* *stares silently* *thinks "what is wrong with this child"*

Okay, okay, FINE. Be like that. So anyway, I decided to very sneakily and schemingly (that's a real word, hush child) steal the Bibliophile Sweater Tag from Gray Marie @ Writing Is Life! I mean, she did say that she tagged anyone who liked sweaters or autumn, and I like both things, so... I didn't steal it, per se... look I want to feel sneaky okay LEAVE ME ALONE

Anyway, without further ado, let's jump right in!

*jumps right in*

Fuzzy Sweater (A book that is the epitome of comfort):



So this is the bit where any normal person would pick a fluffy, sweet, lighthearted novel that makes them feel warm and fuzzy inside, and I pick... a pretty damn dark book about a g…

Chaotic Good, Chaotic Bad, and, um... Just Plain Chaotic tbh: that awkward moment when a homeschooled kid starts school again and freaks out (i.e. a life update)

Image
Hey guys! *waves*

So as you probably know, I started sixth form at the start of this month!! It's been... an experience, certainly. I mean, it's been good! Really good! I'm really enjoying it so far. But it's such a huge change from what I'm used to, that I'm just a tiny bit Shooketh™, or at least I was during the first few weeks. Anyway, I thought it was high time I posted a life update on here, so I'm here to talk all about it!

Make yourselves comfortable, buckle your seatbelts, make yourself a warm drink, sit back, relax and enjoy the journey - it's time to listen to Andrea rambling endlessly about something no-one was ever interested in anyway!! Yay!!

*throws confetti*




Soooo let's start at the very beginning, when I dragged myself out of bed on the sixth of September of 20gayteen (listen, ever since I heard that term you can't possibly expect me to just say 2018 anymore okay) at seven a.m. for the first time since June. Which was... not fun.…
