BLOGMAS DAY 9 | A CARD TO 2017 ME

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Welcome to Day 9 of Blogmas!

**********************************************

2 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

**********************************************

I’m actually quite impressed with how I’ve blogged for almost ten days straight, especially with how absent I’ve been over the last two months! 😀

For today’s Blogmas post, we’re going a little deep. How, you might ask? Well, we’re getting a submarine and th- metaphorial deep. I thought it would be a fun idea to write a Christmas card to myself in 2017. As I’ve learned, a lot can happen, and people can change a lot in the space of a year, so it might feel like a completely different person is writing this time next year!

So today, I’ll be sharing with you, exactly what I wrote, excluding names that are un-coded.

Hi, 2017 Jatm.

As I write this, it’s Friday 23rd December 2016. Since you’re pretty much done with 2017, I just wanted to ask some questions.

How is it being Year 11? Do you miss Pan and *codename of a guy Penny used to like*? Did you just have mocks? How were they? Are you still friends with all my friends?

How was Shawn Mendes? Did you cry?

How was Italy? Was Flynn there? Do you still even like him? Have you spoken to him? ARE YOU DATING?

Is the WhatsApp chat still going strong? Texting everyday?

How many new inside jokes do we have?

Did Donald Trump ruin the world?

Are Fifth Harmony still going strong without Camila?

*insert a bunch of squad ship names*

How’s ze blog?

So… I guess I’ll be done here.

SEE YOU IN 2017!

-2016 Jatm ❤

P.S. Good luck with GCSEs… You got this.

And that’s some of the things I wanted to know about 2017. I really suggest doing this for yourself, since it seems like it’ll be a good way to look back on the year when the time comes! Let me know if you join in, and give us a little snippet of what you wrote! 😀

BLOGMAS DAY 8 | HOLIDAYS TO-DO LIST

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Welcome to Blogmas Day 8!

**********************************************

3 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

**********************************************

My school has officially closed for Christmas, as of 12:20 (Exactly one hour ago as I write this sentence). That means I have round about two weeks without having to see any teachers, unless I happen to run into the biggest inside joke we have like last October. To make those next two weeks a little more productive, I thought I’d make a to-do list, for things I just need to get done.

Tidy My Desk

Unlike the majority of teenagers, my room doesn’t get too messy, but my desk is a whole other story. I did a post, probably about a year ago, where I went through everything I found on it after not having tidied it in a good while. I won’t be doing another of those, but I really do need to tidy up a bit since it’s definitely getting a little too cluttered!

Revise 

Typically, I have an R.E. exam on the Tuesday I go back to school, which does mean that I have to revise over the holidays. It shouldn’t take too much time, like geography, although there are quite a lot of points to memorise.

Eat a Lot of Chocolate

With it being the last day of school, I’ve eaten a truckload of sweets and chocolate already, from prizes, presents and just general friend feasts (on the sweets, not my friends). HOWEVER, I still have a bunch of chocolates left, including a huge Mint Aero bar, a Twix, a big Winter Edition Dairy Milk bar, several candy canes and a Kinder Bueno (LOVE). And that’s not counting what I’ll get at Christmas!

Chat With Friends

Frankly, I’m not the biggest socialite, but I do believe that maintaining contact with friends is super important when you’re on school breaks. There’s no doubt I’ll be messaging Penny, Brit and Hayley via WhatsApp every single day, but I’m hoping to meet up in person too!

Watch the New Sherlock

Any Sherlock fan will know that season 4 starts on New Year’s Day. I’d be lying if I said I was more excited for Christmas. It’s quite literally been about 3 years since the last episode, excluding last year’s special: The Abominable Bride (which was pretty scary if you ask me) and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED for the new season to begin! Praying for Sherlolly! 😀

And those are some of the things I’ll be up to during the holidays! What do you plan on doing?

BLGOMAS DAY 7 | COOKIES GALORE

Hi,

I’m Just Average Teen Me. Welcome to day 7 of Blogmas!

**********************************************

4 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

**********************************************

We’re less than 5 days to go, and I’m still in school! Holidays start after half a day in tomorrow, though!

What’s Christmas without cookies? Unless you’re some sort of cookie-phobe or a little bit of a Scrooge (there’s literally one in my year), then you’ll understand how central cookies are to the entire Christmas season. Hence why I’ve done this post.

Today, dear readers, I will share with you some of the best cookie recipes (I looked at the reviews, I’m sorry) on the internet. Hopefully, there’ll be a variety of difficulties and styles, if you can have styles of cookies?

  1. Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies (Sounds heavenly, I know)
  2. Chocolate-Mint Cookies 
  3. Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies
  4. Spiced Shortbread
  5. White Chocolate and Peppermint Blondies
  6. Red Velvet Snowballs
  7. Melting Snowman Biscuits
  8. Sparkling Vanilla Cookies
  9. Rudolph Shortbread
  10. Pistachio and Cranberry Cookies

And that’s a few cookie recipes to get you through this Christmas! What are some of your favourties? Let me know if you use any of these! 😀
