school is ok

Papers, papers, papers.
When will they ever stop?
I hope that they stop fairly soon,
because I think my brain might pop.

School is overwhelming. I feel like I have too much work, not enough time and definitely not enough space in my brain to store all this new information.
My planner pages are never empty.
There's always some scribbled nothingness placed on the page due for the week after.
It's repetitive and monotonous, but it's something new.

Will it get less busy? Probably not.
But, am I enjoying it? Sure, I guess so.

Bathtime - a poem.

" A tower of bubbles grows tall,
higher and higher,
above my head.

My body sinks underwater,
lower and lower,
'till I relax.

Explosions of colourful spheres,
fizzing and fizzing,
race round the tub.

The minutes run away from me,
faster and faster,
wasted time goes. "

My Doc Marten dolly's are slowly making their way out of my wardrobe, along with their thuggishly educational gang of polo shirts, cardigans and skirts.
That's right everybody...the time has come to go back to School.

Over the past six weeks of summer-y bliss, I've witnessed hundreds of 'Back to School' posts fill my blogger feed and even more school supplies videos fill my YouTube subscription box.

I read so many explanations of products what I have been told are 'essential' for my voyage back to school. According to my research, I need notebooks, pens, pencils and ringbinders galore!

The things I've purchased so far include a rather jazzy backpack and about five bathbombs.
So, who's the winner here?
Probably not me, but I'd still rather walk around in a Lush induced haze for a couple more weeks, than go shopping for school shoes.

Do you like or loathe 'Back to School' season?
Let me know in the comments!

Peace out girl scouts,
Wishing you all the best for going back to school,

Fran ♥

Negativity on the internet.

People on the internet have lots of opinions. People outside of the internet have lots of opinions too.
Opinions are often shared a lot on the internet. These opinions can be positive and uplifting, but unfortunately sometimes they can be mean and upset others.

Don't get me wrong, I have a lot of opinions and I think discussions are great! However, I think it's wrong when people use social media to target others because of their opinions. Just like everybody says "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."

I recently watched Gabby's (VelvetGh0st) video about honesty and I'd like to talk about it today.
This video really put into perspective how negativity and hate on the internet can emotionally impact somebody and their life.
She talked about how she has been affected by people sending her hate on social media.   She explained in the video how she felt upset and how the hate had stopped her from being herself.

I think it was incredibly brave of Gabby to upload her video onto YouTube. Although the video is rather long, I really do encourage you to watch it - if you're familiar with her or not.
Her video is a reminder that although she has thousands of subscribers, she's a real person. Also just because you're commenting via a URL, it doesn't mean that it doesn't affect somebody IRL.

If you're going to take anything from this blog post, please let it be this.
Use your social media to spread positivity, not negativity.

Peace out girl scouts,

In my last post, I talked about fun things to do in the Summer holidays to stay happy.
I'm going to continue with this post now with a part two.


#4 - Re-decorate your room

There are some good videos lurking around YouTube about DIY room decor; I'll link some below!
