Sorry!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. So, this post is just a quick update sort of thing…

Basically, sorry I haven’t blogged in quite a few days. Homework has been really crazy and family has been quite chaotic too… I hope you can understand and not hate me for not posting…. SORRY! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Do expect 4 new posts in the near future…. I didn’t realise it was this close to the end of September, so I haven’t done my monthly look ahead or September favourites! I have a new Theo Thursday coming too tomorrow (that’ll be my priority for the day because it has to be the Thursday!) and a TTTS post about friends coming (probably last out of them all… Sorry!

Thank you SO SO much for understanding (if you do!)! And I’ll see you with a Theo Thursday tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜€

BYE! ๐Ÿ˜€

Excitement

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. I felt like chatting today… Yeah I know, that’s pretty much all I do lately but never mind… I hope you like posts like this…. Please let me know if you don’t, and I can do less of them!

But anyways, I was wondering, how excited do you guys get? Like I have a few stages of excitement…. And I’m gonna use what I’m excited for now, as an example.

So basically, since sometime in April ish I think??? The very last episode of Once Upon A Time Season 4 went on TV. And that meant I needed to wait about 5 months, waiting for season 5 episode 1. 5 MONTHS IS A VERY LONG TIME PEOPLE! ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S A TV SHOW AS AMAZING AS ONCE UPON A TIME! And now, there are 3 days left. This time in 4 days, I will have seen the new Once Upon A Time.

This is probably as excited as I get! Well, not quite. My stages of excitement are:

  • Sarcasm. Basically, not excited but pretending
  • No reaction
  • Slight “I’m excited”
  • Butterflies in my stomach and waving hands with high pitched excited noise
  • FALLING ON THE FLOOR AND DYING AND EXPLODING AND EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE AND I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN I JUST FEEL LIKE SCREAMING AND UGH PLEASE HELP

So, I am either not very excited, or full out dying. And yes, I did actually fall on the floor when I realised that the new episode of Glee season 5 was the next day… And yes, I got a few strange looks off my family while I was collapsed on the kitchen floor…

At the moment, I would say I am at the butterflies and waving hands part. But I promise you, in a few days, I will definitely be at the FALLING ON THE FLOOR AND DYING AND EXPLODING ND EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE AND I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN I JUST FEEL LIKE SCREAMING AND UGH PLEASE HELP stage… For sure. And anyone in my company will hate me for that day or two… Literally… I will probably be one of the most annoying people to be around… Unless you are that excited too. Maybe we could be annoying together and fangirl and just die basically…

So, how excited do you get? And what do you get excited for? Let me know in the comments! ๐Ÿ˜€

Theo Thursdays #2

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. As some of you may already know, today is Theo Thursday! ๐Ÿ˜€ But if you don’t know, every Thursday, I post an update on the ‘Theo Situation’… Quite a few of you wanted updates so I thought why not make it a feature! If you haven’t seen my previous Theo Thursday, you can either click here or go up to my menu bar, where there should be a Theo Thursdays tab. It would probably make more sense if you saw that before you read this one.

So, getting into the post. No, this week wasn’t just awkward catching him starring at me and stuff, but there was talking. Not much, just like 2 or 3 times, but still, it was super awkward, and super uncomfortable and the whole time I was like OH GOD WHAT IF HE IS LIKE JUST TOTALLY CRUSHING ON ME RIGHT NOW!?! And yeah…

Basically, the first one was on Monday, in French, we were writing as many sentences as we could for who could win a sticker – yes a sticker, and no I’m not in year 1. ๐Ÿ˜€ But turns out it was me *proud face*. I’m actually quite good at French but meh. Anyways, when Theo saw my whiteboard with all the sentences he said “That’s impossible!” in this really awkward little high pitched voice. It sounded so rehearsed, even though it probably wasn’t, and it made me cringe so much I could have curled into a ball and shrunk into the floor if I was on my own… But I wasn’t on my own… So I just had to smile awkwardly like ‘haha yeah’…

The next thing, was at break time. I was with the Squad (my friendship group) and him and Tyler (check the Codenames tab if you’re really that bothered) came up to us and started talking. It was fairly normal because Tyler is sort of friends with us all and friends with Theo, but Theo had never spoken to any of us properly. Well, he didn’t really say much, but he seemed to be laughing all the time, and looking at me every so often, which was super awkward (sorry I use the word awkward too much… I’m just an awkward person) so I just pretended that he wasn’t and carried on talking to everyone…

Now, this one is by FAR the most cringey and messing up my brain because I still don’t really understand. Get ready! Drumroll please! At this point I realise that what I’m about to say isn’t short enough to have the effect that a drumroll should have but never mind. DRUMROLL! He came up to me outside History and was like “Jatm? (obviously he didn’t say that… He said my name, but I can’t give my name on here so my blogging initials will have to do) You know the geography homework from last week? What was it?” I have no idea why in the world he wanted to know last week’s geography homework, but for some reason he did. Me being socially awkward and thinking about my blog, and all of you guys, and his codename and all that, couldn’t get out my words properly and couldn’t think how to word last weeks homework. Thankfully my friend (part of the squad) – get ready for another codename! – Alice, came and rescued the situation just in time, realised that I was struggling to remember and told him for me… AWKWARD! But after then, I was like (in my head) ‘Why did he need to know that? Was it just an excuse for talking to me? And even if he did need to know – why did he ask me?!?! Does he like me? Oh god maybe he does… ‘

Anyways, I still haven’t got my head around that encounter but I guess it’ll just be another mystery! That isn’t all though, today in English, we had a new seating plan. And BAM. Guess where I was sat? RIGHT FREAKING NEXT TO THEO! GEEZ MR ENGLISH TEACHER WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DO THAT? DON’T YOU REALISE THE MESS MY HEAD IS IN BECAUSE OF THIS GUY? Like why couldn’t it have been a certain someone that I may or may not like but I’m just gonna ignore that…. If you really want to hear about that then maybe I could tell you in another blog post but that is getting quite deep into my brain (not that this already is or anything but you know…. ) Thank God, he wasn’t in school today! So I had the desk to myself. But on Monday, (I’m not in school tomorrow! YAY!) English is gonna get awkward…

But it’ll make these posts way more interesting!

That’s all for this week! I do have another post coming up! I started to write it, and then realised that it was Theo Thursday, so I started this one instead… Expect a post for tomorrow! It will probably be more of a talkative, chatty one but I hope you like them! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you SO much for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you enjoy my blog and please leave your thoughts on the whole Theo thing in the comments, along with any suggestions you may have.

How are You? – Really

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. I wanted to have a conversation sort of post today, but I need you to help it be a conversation, so make sure to comment when you’ve read it! Onto the topic. I remembered, that part of why I started blogging, was to make a place for people to chat, without having to hide anything, feel under pressure or embarrassed. I know that it still might be, but I hope that through this post, we can talk about our feelings and stuff.

So, today’s post is me asking you How Are You? Really. So not just fine. Fine is one of the world’s most common lies. And I’m banning it from the comments! Don’t just comment fine. Comment how you really are. Has anything been bothering you? Anything that you’d like to talk about? Or are you having a great time at the moment? If so, what are you doing? I’ll respond to all of the comments, and hopefully help anyone if they need it.

Just in case you were wondering, I guess I’m actually mostly good! ๐Ÿ™‚ Obviously there are things that aren’t amazing, but you can’t have everything perfect, right? Last night, I went to see Darcy Oake (he’s an illusionist/magician who was on Britain’s Got Talent a few years ago) and it was incredible! Some of the stuff he can do is just mind-boggling. It left me spellbound (da dum tssss) ย And makes me wonder, if maybe there is magic! But there have been some bad ish things. First of all, my sister has gone back to university… So it’ll be weird not having her in the house… And that means I’m the oldest. So, I have to do the most help around the house… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Yesterday, I was feeling quite claustrophobic… I don’t think I really have claustrophobia. But there was quite a lot of noise yesterday, and clutter, and it made me feel really sort of squished into a small space…. I felt like everyone was giving me too much to do as well… Like, my mum would ask me to clean the dishes, and look after my little brother, and help with the dog…. Obviously not all at the same time, but it made me feel quite overwhelmed… Usually, I wouldn’t be that bothered, but my mood yesterday was a bit weird, like I said claustrophobic. So basically, I felt really crushed, and squished, and ended up just going upstairs to my bedroom and watching X-Factor snuggled up to my blanket, with my fairy lights on instead of having to strain my ears to tell what was going on behind all of the noise… So far, I’m feeling much better today!

Well, that’s me! What about you? How are you –Really? I’d love to hear in the comments, and I’ll try to help or give advice if anyone needs it! Comment on eachothers comments too! Seeing you all interacting would be amazing! And help to build the supportive little community that I hoped for! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thank you SO much for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you enjoy my blog, and please, please, please leave a comment! Get your thoughts out!

As Requested :D

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. I realised, that one of my most popular and requested posts is my one about The New Kid (I suggest checking it out if you haven’t already, otherwise this post will make no sense to you… ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Anyways, since you seemed to like that one quite a bit, and wanted updates (which I am very happy about! I love that you all want to hear about what’s going on) I have made a decision.

It will probably only be temporary

But should maybe last a while

Are you ready?

TODAY IS THE FIRST THEO THURSDAY!

Yes I have changed his codename… There isn’t anything days of the week starting with an R and I wanted it to sound cool and yeah… OCD! ๐Ÿ˜€ So I ditched the Raphael name… It’s Theo now! Basically every Thursday, I will give an update on what’s going on in the whole situation. Please don’t think that I want this to end up with me and him ‘together’ because I really don’t… I just want to figure out if he even like likes me in the first place… I’ve never been in a situation like this if you haven’t already noticed…

So this week, not much has happened… There have been a few accidental meย catching him starringย into my soul in which case I walk along swiftly and pretend it never happened…. And smile a bit… I can’t exactly just ignore it and give him an evil glare can I? I was beating myself up a bit (not literally) after that though… like, what if that made him think that I like him too? I don’t!

It was in maths the other day, and I walked to the front of the class to put some paper in the bin, and it just so happens, that he sits on the middle front desk… As I was walking past (these people are meant to be doing their work by the way) I realised that he was watching me putting the rubbish in the bin…. Who does that? I smiled and walked past…. I felt quite confident at that point in time, which is weird for me, because I’m usually the more quiet one… But then, the thought that someone might like me made me feel prettier, and instantly more confident! ๐Ÿ˜€ย Just for a second though, because by the time I got back to my seat, I was dying inside like “OH MY GOD WHAT DID I JUST DO??!?!?”

And he walked down the corridor that me and my friends eat at and I’m quite sure he was looking at me… The whole time… So I smiled again, because I had no idea what to do…. It was quite awkward….

That’s pretty much all that’s happened this week! Let me know what you thought in the comments and make sure to like and follow if you like my blog!

Thank you SO much for reading, and let me know if you like the idea of one of these every Thursday!

50 Followers!

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today wasn’t one of the best days. It was one of them ‘Little sister annoy you to no ends and get you in trouble when it really should be her’ days… But when I got home, I checked WordPress, and I realised something quite big!

I HAVE 50 FOLLOWERS!

50followers

What? How and when did that happen? Well, around 5 hours ago, a blogger called Katy Maryย (Shoutout because why not?) became my 50th follower! Thank you so much by the way! And to everyone else who followed before her! I started my blog back on July 27th, and now, it already has 50 followers? I didn’t in no way imagine that I would even get 10! Remember my post at the start of blogging 101 when I said – OH POO! I FORGOT! I JOINED BLOGGING 201, AND COMPLETELY FORGOT WHEN IT STARTED! SORRY, I’LL TRY AND DO THEM POSTS SOON!…

Back to what I was on about before…. I said in my Who I am and Why I’m Here post that I wanted to reach 30 followers within a year. Well, you guys helped me get WAY past that! Thanks again!

It’s really hard to get my head around the fact that there are 50 real – yes real – people that want to receive updates when I post a blog post! Why is anyone that bothered about my little blog? I’m just a teenage girl with actually quite a boring life…. Yet 50 people want to share it with me? I can’t imagine that you are all real, and not just computer generated! It’s hard to think like that over the internet… Especially since none of you actually know who I am – this blog is anonymous after all!

It’s been quite hard to get to this point actually. After a little while, I wasn’t getting many views, maybe about 10 – 15 a week? And I was struggling to come up with blog posts… It got quite tempting to just give up on the whole thing. But I carried on. And it was SOOOOO worth it!

Your comments mean the whole world to me! Even if it’s just simple! But every time I get a nice comment (they’re all nice really) it actually makes me smile! So thank you for that!

Some of you might be thinking, ‘Why is she making such a big deal out of just 50 followers?’ but to me, it feels like so many! I know that there are blogs with hundreds, but my 50, feels like so much more! You’re all so nice! ๐Ÿ™‚

Gushiness over now…. Thank you for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you like my blog and leave any comments or suggestions in the comments below!

World News (TTTS)

Hi,

Their Logo
Their Logo

I’m Just Average Teen Me. This week’s Teens Tell Their Story task was to write about World News. I didn’t really want to do anything sad, or depressing because I want to keep my blog a happy place (I think it is at the moment)! So I went on BuzzFeed, and found an article about how a writer (who also likes to troll the internet) tweeted a tweet with a fact, that wasn’t exactly true.

fake tweer

If you don’t already know, they have children called Jaden And Willow, which makes it seem like they were named after their parents according to this tweet. JadeN and WillO. Now, loads of people responded, with stuff like “How could we be so blind” and “I have known for years” but little did they know, that it was all made up!

There was another twitter account, that tweeted the same tweet, without giving credit to the original tweeter. This is actually called plagiarism. And they really should give the original tweeter credit. But it’s really obvious that it’s been copied if the actual fact isn’t even true.

Basically, this can teach us two things.

  1. Don’t copy other people’s tweets or stuff like that…
  2. Don’t trust everything you see on the internet

That last one is really important. Anyone in the world can make a fake account, post fake tweets/images and make someone think that they are someone that they aren’t. Just quite recently here on wordpress, there were people posting inappropriate pictures onto their blog on the teen tag. And people even today on twitter and other social medias, post as someone that they aren’t. Particularly famous people. Just make sure that you are following the right people, if they are famous, then they should be verified, and have lots of followers…

And if you feel like someone has copied your tweet, there is an account called @PlagiarismBad (Click it for the link) for you to message, and they can try and do something about it.

Thank you so much for reading. I didn’t expect this post to turn into an online-safety one! But I hope you liked it anyways! Make sure to like and follow (Really nearly at 50 now!) if you enjoy my blog and leave any thoughts and suggestions in the comments.

We all have that teacher

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. And no, this isn’t an update on the Raphael situation. If you’ve no idea what I mean, then go check out my last blog post here. I can’t be bothered explaining it all, it gets too long ๐Ÿ™‚ . But thank you so much to the people that commented! Your support means the world to me! I can’t believe that there are some of you out there, that actually want to read my little blog! ๐Ÿ™‚ And give me advice when I need it! It seriously makes me so happy! I’ve decided, I’m going to leave the whole situation alone, and see if it carries on.. If it does, I might ask one of my friends what they think, and maybe one of his if it carries on for even longer! I might as well give you a teeny tiny update… Not much has gone on differently, I still catch him looking at me, like today, I was waiting for my friend outside her Science classroom and it just so happened to be his too… I saw him looking at me as he came out, but otherwise, nothing has really happened.

I did have an idea for this post…. But I’ve forgotten… Argh it’s so annoying when that happens! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Well, I just had another idea! Since we’ve had a while back at school now, you’ll probably be remembering all the different types of teachers. That’s why this post is called: We all have that teacher that…

  • The teacher that can’t control the class whatsoever.

I’m guessing you’ve had one of these before. Usually, it tends to be the younger ones that has just started teaching, and for some reason, the whole class decides that means they don’t have to behave at all. And I mean at all. My English teacher last year was like that. Every single lesson we had, people were ignoring her. Personally, I didn’t like her very much, but I did feel a bit sorry for her. Although it was quite funny sometimes… These teachers hardly ever get you to your target grade. And if you do actually end up with it, I salute you! That must have been hard! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • The teacher that ALWAYS has tests

Normally, people would see all the tests asย a bad thing, but teachers like this end up doing well. It really works. I had a French teacher who always made us revise new vocab and learn it for a spelling test. There was one time though, when I didn’t revise at all. It was one of the most terrifying things in the world… I had to sit there, and guess all the answers… I think I ended up with 60%…. But my teacher let me off, because I had been out of a lot of the earlier lessons! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yay for nice teachers!

  • The teacher that just doesn’t do what they’re meant to, how they’re meant to

So, you usually have a few teachers that really seem like they aren’t doing what they’re meant to be doing. The lessons are all muddled up and unorganised, nobody has to do any work – everything comes on sheets that you can stick into your book without writing a single word. This doesn’t usually work though, because they rarely give out glue sticks which leads to a book filled with random pieces of paper that you have no idea what to do with…

  • The teacher that tries to be friends with the students

These are one of my least favourites…. I cannot stand it when a teacher thinks they can make the class like them by acting like the stereotypical teenagers…. It really bugs me… Teachers are NOT – I repeat NOT supposed to be your friend. They’re supposed to be your teacher. And nothing else. My English teacher this year, told us at the start of the year “I’m a local lad. I was here at one point too“. But surely after having to put up with my school for a whole 5 years, you wouldn’t want to come back again? Seriously who wants to be back where they were when they were a teenager? I know I won’t be coming back… ๐Ÿ˜€

  • The teacher that is ancient and has been there for longer than anyone can imagine

These teachers just seem to be ancient and don’t get older from there…. Like, they were ancient when your parents were there, and they’re still there, and ancient now! I don’t understand if these know that retirement is a thing… Or if they have some anti-aging potion that they took a little too late.. Either way, why not just retire? They’ve obviously been there forever! Through several headmasters! Plus, nobody likes them that much, and they’re rubbish at teaching… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • The teacher that is ALWAYS grumpy

Ugh. My History teacher from last year and this year is ALWAYS grumpy. She always seems really aggressive and shouts constantly. And never let’s you work in groups with your friends… And they make you copy out stuff, and just do loads of work… Plus I hate history…

  • The nice teacher that can actually teach

Yay! It’s that day of the week where you don’t feel like falling over and dying at the bus stop! Because you have a lesson, where everything goes well, everyone behaves, it’s fun (bonus), the teacher is amazing and your grades actually go up! It’s actually amazing when you end up with a teacher like this! Even if it’s a subject that you really don’t like, it will be better than your favourite subject with a teacher that you hate… Last year’s maths teacher was like that… But I didn’t get her this year… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was so disappointed!

  • The substitute teacher that breaks ALL (I need double bold for the all…)ย the rules

These are usually the teachers that when you arrive at the classroom everyone is making fists saying ‘Yessssssssss we’ve got so and so‘ and the whole class celebrates because what they’re about to go into, is no lesson at all. It’s a lesson of sitting with your friends, eating sweets, drinking fizzy drinks, playing on your phone and watching movies on your amazing substitute teacher’s Netflix. These are literally the best lessons in the world. Enough said. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s all of them! I hope you can relate to some of these! If I missed any (I will have done…. I only did about 8) please let me know in the comments!

Make sure to like and follow (Thankyou so much to everyone that has followed my blog! I’m nearly nearly at 50 followers! Please help me reach it!) if you enjoy my blog, and I’ll see you in the next one!

The New Kid

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. And no, I haven’t moved schools. But someone has. To my school. Andย I need some advice…

I think he might like me… Not just aย friendly way. I have no idea if he does, and personally I’d rather he didn’t… I’ll tell you what’ happened so far

First of all, he came to school on Thursday (Not last, the one before) and I didn’t know who he was at that point. But turns out he’s in my year half. And a lot of my lessons. So, he was put with Tyler (voila! Another codename! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) who I’m not entirely sure if I would call him a friend… But I’m fine talking to him, he’s a nice person etc. Through Tyler, we saw each other around at lunch times while I was with The Squad (My friendship group) and I’ve realised, he is really shy and quiet. I know that there are people like that but usually with friends you’d think they’d open up and talk a bit? He doesn’t seem to even talk much with Tyler when he’s around us… But could that be because my squad are that intimidating? There are 5 of us! ๐Ÿ˜€

Sometimes, he seems to say things, related to stuff that I like… Like Once Upon A Time, which I have been overheard talking about several times ๐Ÿ™‚ . And when I asked if he watched it, he said no….ย  And sometimes, I see him walking around where me and my friends eat at lunch – on his own… Could that be because he wants to see us? Or not? Because that’s not anywhere near where his friends stay at lunch…

Plus, sometimes I catch him looking at me during lessons, but he looks down nervously when see him… It’s really awkward. I don’t know how to deal with these things! I can’t exactly just ask him, because what if he said yes?!? And it’s only been a week, I could just be jumping to conclusions very quickly… Hopefully!

If I am being totally honest on this blog (which I am), I will admit, that even thinking that someone might like like me is making me feel prettier. I’ve never felt like a pretty person, that anyone would want to date… But the thought that someone might, is terrifying – especially because I’d rather not date him! – and I feel more like a pretty girl… In a way, it gives me hope that someone,ย somewhere might like me, and I like them!ย I’m not sure… I’ve never had to deal with stuff like this! Except one time whereย there were rumours that a really annoying kid liked me, but he got expelled so I’m safe from the awkwardness of that situation! Phew! But seriously, have any of you guys ever been in a situation like this? What happened? And do you think he actually likes me? I’ll post updates if you really want… But for now I think I’ll leave everything as it is and not interfere with it all… Just came up with a codename for him: Raphael… I know its crazy… But I’ll be using it! Plus it’s easy to remember!

Thank you SO much for reading! Make sure to like and follow if you enjoy my blog and leave any thoughts and suggestions in the comments below! Oh and have you got any ideas that I could use for weekly features here on my blog? Like something I will do every Thursday? Or Monday? Or any day of the week??? Please let me know what you think! I’m stuck for ideas! ๐Ÿ˜€

Scrunching Faces and Intense Homework

Yeah… I know that’s an odd title, but you’ll understand later… ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today’s post is gonna be more of a chatty post than usual, about being back at school…. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got my first actual homework of the year yesterday, and I’ve justย done it today. And I can really only explain it as INTENSE! All’s we had to do, was back our books. If you don’t really know what that is, I’ll clear it up for you. Basically, you wrap your book in something so it doesn’t get wrecked… I use sticky back plastic, from a roll I got from Staples as I mentioned in my Back to School Tips. Or I think I did? If I didn’t, I meant to! ๐Ÿ™‚ And usually, I stick on some printed pictures of stuff to do with that subject and then wrap it in sticky back plastic. When I say that, I mean, my Mum (or mom, wherever you’re from ๐Ÿ™‚ ) wraps it in sticky back plastic. Today, I felt like trying to do it on my own.

Little did I know, how hard it actually was. Once I had got the sticky back plastic and the book ready, I had no idea where to start. I will admit, it took me 20 minutes to do the first one, but 10 to do the next…. I’m quite proud of the results though! They’re a bit bumpy, with air bubbles but never mind – that happens when my mum does it too! But let me tell you, the whole flip the book over onto the sticky part without making air bubbles everywhere was one of the most intense things I’ve ever had to do in a homework, except having to move an exploded tea bag off my homework (I was meant to be using tea bags by the way) without making it look like I had smeared who knows what all over it…. But that’s a whole other story that I won’t bore you with ๐Ÿ™‚ .

You might be wondering, where does scrunching faces come in this blog post? Well, it comes now. Well not right now but very soon. What I’m going on about is Performing Arts. It was our first dramaย lesson of the year today, and it was one of the most embarrassing/awkward lessons I’ve had in my entire life! Our teacher, wanted us to feel confident, and not embarrassed? Is there a word I can use there? Anyways, he made us do the strangest things in the world, without being allowed to laugh at what anyone else was doing. I actually found that part quite hard; I seem to laugh at anything and everything, even if it’s not even remotely funny, or at the most completely inappropriate time… But seriously.ย Never did I everย imagine myself, kicking my legs like a leprechaun on drugs, making the weirdest noises, and scrunching up my face, in ways I didn’t even know was possible, in front of people I’d never had a conversation with.

Drama is not, I repeat NOT, going to be one of my strong points, or lessons that I look forward to each week… I’m quite sure the teacher is crazy…

Anyways, how has back to school been for you? I’d love to hear in the comments! As usual, make sure to like and follow if you like my blog, and please comment! ๐Ÿ™‚
