Another year older

After your adult years truly begin, each birthday feels no different from the next. Not 100% confirming I'm some sort of adult that has their shit together, but 22 is a pretty solid age for an adult (I think). How the hell did that happen? I'm pretty convinced I'm still the 14-year-old emo child that used to spend all her school money on gig tickets and shortbread biscuits. With my only worries being what colour skinny jeans I'd be wearing that day, everything did seem a lot simpler back then. I'm talking as if I'm an old age pensioner looking back on my younger years, although I do feel pretty old sometimes. Is it nap time yet? I could literally sleep my life away if that was an option.

I think everyone tries to walk into a new year with their head held up high, hoping for better things to happen. I see nothing wrong with a bit of positivity, the more the bloody merrier! Too many people complain about others trying to set goals they probably won't follow through, but the thought's there isn't it? Having a motivated and optimistic outlook on how you plan to do things is amazing, and if you're able to keep those thoughts around, perfect. I don't know where I'm going with this post at all, but sometimes it's good to let your mind run free through writing, and these are my simple thoughts coming into 2017.

I'm feeling quite good coming into this brand new year. I do see it as some sort of fresh start, being such a naturally pessimistic human I truly am trying to lift the negativity from myself. My creativity completely escaped me last year and it really did bring me down. Being such a lover of photography and art in general, it really did suck, felt a bit lost really. But hey ho, can only pick myself back up from these moments and come back even better, right?

Have any of you set goals for this year? Realistic or not, it's still great to have them.
I hope everyone is well, Happy New Year!

Life Update

Well, it's been quite a while, hasn't it? I deserve a medal for most useless blogger ever. I'm really good at randomly taking off whenever I feel like it. I guess I have good reason to else I would never leave this wonderful world of blogging. It sucks missing out on everything like I have done recently, you only need to look away from blogging for a quick second and several things have happened. It's incredibly hard to keep up lately and I hate it. I can't say I'll ever have my focus truly on blogging, but i certainly do miss writing and i definitely miss the wonderful people i talk to on Twitter.

So? Life has been weird these past three months. For one, I ended my (nearly) 5-year relationship, that was a lot for my brain to handle. But it was something I needed to do, and if anyone's wondering... I'm a lot happier now, it just takes a while to adjust to being on your own, which of course has its positives and negatives, but I'll leave that for another time...

I also went to Spain with my parents, which was quite an experience but all good to get away from recent events. I managed to play a lot of Pokemon GO while I was there... Their variety of Pokemon was incredible, biggest nerd ever, I know. Apart from the lack of sleep it was incredibly refreshing to get away for a week, and i fucking LOVE flying. Just makes me want to start planning my next trip.

OH, and not to mention I finally got to witness Busted live... No big deal. Only waited probably half my life to see those three beautiful men and oh boy it was perfect... I screamed my heart out and got super drunk, it was a good fucking time.

Life hasn't been too crazy, it never is, but I kind of like that. I'm finally giving myself some time to be happy and it's nice. I have missed talking to everyone though, and I truly regret distancing myself like I have done, but shit happens eh? <3

Pokemon GO

Pokemon is changing the world. My younger self is screaming with excitement for this new revelation. I grew up with an older brother which I am SO thankful for, I pretty much loved everything he did, which included Pokemon. I would steal his Pokemon cards and pretend I was as cool as he was with his collection. So when this idea of an APP that could bring Pokemon to the real world, it sounded amazing. The hype was real and we were all ready for it...

So July 6 appeared and so did Pokemon GO. Only released in certain countries that didn't include the UK, my heart was breaking. Not being able to play the game the same time as everyone was PAINFUL, it didn't take long for people to find out how to play it in the UK, so I raced to make my account and start playing. Working indoors 8 hours a day, I certainly got off to a slow start... I couldn't exactly tell my boss I was off out to walk around my local park for the rest of the day, I bloody wish I could.

Pokemon GO is actually life changing. It's getting people out and active in our real world, venturing through places they probably never would have thought to go to. I can tell you now I haven't walked home from work in the past year and I haven't stopped walking since this game was released. Along with actually living your childhood dream, you're fucking walking all over the place. I'm actually exercising you guys. With hatching eggs, you kind of need to walk distances and it's definitely helping to make me a lot more active. 

So... I'd love to see who else is playing it! I'm seeing a few cheeky tweets of Pokemon GO findings on twitter, and it's so great to see. I'm even texting my brother daily talking about it now, it's madness! It's only the beginning too, I'm so excited to see where the company that's behind this genius app goes next. There's so much to look forward to, I can't wait :).
