I’m Just Average Teen Me. August is about to come to a close, which means it’s nearly September! I really don’t feel like it should be, though. This year is going so insanely fast! Anyway, as you’ll probably know, I do a Monthly Look-Ahead at the end of every month. This month, it’ll be quite school-themed, with back to school and all that jazz. But let’s get into it anyway!
Back to School
For people in the UK, we’re just about to go back to school. Sure, it means there’ll be piles of school books against that wall of my room that’s been pleasantly empty for the last seven weeks, but I’ve missed my friends. I’ve missed having the goals to strive towards. I’ll do a whole post on school tomorrow, but for now, just know I’m pretty excited!
Once Upon A Time Season 6
If you’ve read quite a few of my blog posts, you’ve probably come across “Once Upon A Time” or as I may have referred to it: “OUAT”. After the several month hiatus, season 6 will return on September 25th, although I’ll be watching it on the 26th; UK friends where you at? If you haven’t seen OUAT, I’ll briefly explain it (it’s actually really difficult so I’ll just go to Season 1). All of the fairytale characters (Cinderella, Snow White, Prince Charming and the rest) are all living happily in the Enchanted Forest, when The Evil Queen casts a curse and they’re all living in our world, without a clue of their ‘fictional’ identities. It’s probably easier if you just Google it or something! 😀
With the start of every school year, we get a new timetable. I’m trying not to describe too much in just this post, so that I’m not completely repeating myself in tomorrow’s post. There’s something so refreshing about having a new schedule to follow; like a fresh start – a clean slate. Plus, we get to leave behind our teachers from last year and get some new ones! 🙂
Looking after Year 7s
If you didn’t already know, I’m just going into Year 10 now (bombshell dropping here, I know. But other anonymous bloggers do it, don’t they? Please don’t hunt me down.). As one of the older years, we help with the Year 7s (newcomers, for those of you that aren’t in a UK high school). It normally includes going to some of their classes, and helping them… I’m really not that sure. Anyways, I remember seeing the older years as so much bigger when I was in Year 7. And to think that this year’s Y7s will see me like that, is insaaaane. I do plan to take advantage (in a good way, of course) of that, because it isn’t very often that I feel older than the people around me. XD
Seeing My Friends Again
Aside from going into the town centre with my ‘Squad that I don’t actually hang out with at lunches anymore but I’m still in it and we’re still all great friends’ yesterday, I haven’t seen any of my other friends (trust me, there aren’t that many others) in over a month. Thanks to WhatsApp, I’ve been keeping in touch literally every minute with Penny and Britt, so we weren’t utterly separated.
Surprising Said Friends With My Brace-less Teeth
So, about two weeks ago, I parted with my braces. Parts of my teeth hadn’t seen the light of day for three whole years, so as you can imagine, they felt (and looked) very odd. At first, I was convinced I looked like a horse, but I’m pretty much used to it now, thank goodness. Penny, Rachel, Ashley and Regina have already seen them, but Britt hasn’t. She doesn’t even know I’ve had them off. I’m not sure if she’ll notice straight away, but I think she’ll be quite shocked when she does 😀
Trying Out My New Concealer
While I was out yesterday, I bought a new concealer; my Collection Lasting Perfection one ran out. Don’t get me wrong, I loved that concealer, and it works wonders when you need it to. But the one downside was that it seemed to be a little drying on the skin. I’m not sure if anyone else that’s used it has dealt with that, or if it’s just me. Anyway, I was looking for something that might be a little better in that department, when I found the Bourjois Radiance Reveal concealer – and in my shade! It claims to correct, illuminate and hydrate for 24 hours. If that doesn’t sound like the whole package, I don’t know what does! I haven’t tried it out yet, but I will be doing as soon as I’m back to school!
That’s most of what I’m looking forward to in September! What are you doing next month?

P.S. I had a lot of fun writing this post, for no apparent reason, but hey, thought I’d let you know! 🙂
