So here I am

And here I stay. I am trying desperately to write lesson plans for my final three weeks of teaching practice, but after 2 weeks holidays and 7 weeks of constant Teaching placement before that, I feel I have lost my flow.

What do you do when you know you’re procrastinating?

How do you get back into the swing of things?

Let me know. I need assistance!


Why is this site still getting views?

So I have a different blog now that I am actually far more active on. I left this blog behind because I thought that I needed a new start.

Yet this blog is still getting views…

Why is that?

Is it that the tags really do work?

Did I write something that registered well with people out there?

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I get even 20 views a day. But the fact that I still get views and my last post was over two years ago, that astounds me.

Can anyone explain to me why this is?


Someone, PLEASE explain to me…

Would someone out there please please PLEASE be kind enough to tell me WHY this particular Blog post I wrote over 8 months ago gets hits every day?
I’m pretty sure it is just a rambly post.
People don’t really search showers that much…. Do they?

Feelin’ Good After the Summer

Sooooo something I did not post about last time was how much everything has changed for me since I last posted regularly on this Blog. I feel it’s better to tell you all through one post instead of any of you who remember me being confused when I mention things I would never have mentioned before.

I have also managed to reach a few goals of mine in the process of the summer (not many, so don’t get your hopes up that this will be super inspirational!) which I may as well list here too.

1) I got a job and have kept it! That’s right I am officially moving up in the world of experience and work. Not much as I only get 4-9 hours a week, but it’s still something! My name is Charlotte, I have been working in a hotel as a waitress since May, and I have only broken one glass so far!

2) I have moved out. This one is pretty huge. I have been needing a place of my own for a very long time now (almost two years) and now I finally have one! Now, I will miss my Grandparents, whom I had been living with these past two years while I attended college, but they are only a short walk and a bus ride away so I’ll be seeing plenty of them!

3) I made it into my third year of college. I don’t know how, as one of the nights before the test I distinctly remember honestly never having heard the names of any of the authors I was to write an essay on the next day, but I managed!

4) I managed to hold onto Mr. Cooke. Some of you may remember my boyfriend from his constant reference in my Blog, and we have managed to stay together for a whole other summer despite living in two completely different counties (whoop!). I know it’s sappy, but this is the most important thing I’ve managed to do all summer!

5) I did not get fat off all my baking.

6) I’ve only gotten obsessed with one thing over the summer… and that being Farmville I am proud to say I have kicked the addiction.

7) …. Wow… I am an awful person… That’s all I’ve done this summer!

Well there ya have it, any updates which have taken place, they are all mentioned above!

Goals and Achievements Here I Come!

So after deciding to start back into my Blog today, it is literally all I have been able to think about since. I know, that is incredibly sad and at 20 years old I should really have more on my mind, but in fairness work today was dragged out hugely so all I had time to do was think.

I was also meant to start writing today, but got side tracked because when I got home my Step Dad asked me to help him do up a flyer for his counselling service. Obviously, I was gonna help him out. However, I still want to do something, so I’m going to draw out a Writing Map, and map out my progress for this month, what I hope to achieve in this one month and what I actually achieve.

Of course what you want to achieve and will actually achieve are two completely different things. I always under estimate myself to make sure that I hit an actual goal, though this isn’t always the best method because I get lazy and stick to the smaller goal when I can be reaching much higher.

Though, now that I am seriously trying to apply myself, and as there is an actual deadline for the applications for the masters I’m interested in I really have to be serious about my writing and stop slacking off and just forgetting about what I’m meant to be doing. I’ll have my map done out before the end of the day, and then I’ll know exactly where I’ll be starting with my writing over the next week.

I have a few side projects at the moment, some I can talk about and some I can’t, but they will also be keeping me busy both in the lead up to and during my next year of college. Between all of this I am just after moving out with my friend, Samantha.

It is going to be one amazing, hectic year!

Hello There, Old Friend!

I don’t know if any of you remember me, but I have a few posts on this site and a few people who used to read my stuff and comment on my Blog! I know I have’t posted all summer, but I swear there’s a good reason!

Well.. If you count having no real internet at all as a reason. Also, I was trying a new Blog out which didn’t work out because I missed talking to the people I had already met here! So, I am coming back to this Blog, with my tail between my legs knowing I was terribly wrong to leave you. I’m sorry, and I promise I will never do anything like that again!

I’m going to start a few newer posts of a different nature than they were before the summer on this Blog, however I do still want to update about writing and all that jazz. I am starting back at writing tomorrow as I only have 7 months to get my portfolio together for the Creative Writing Masters I want to get into! So some serious writing needs to be done!

Though, as I said, I have a few ideas to spice this Blog up and to get back into writing in it daily! Let’s hope this goes well people!



Ramblings of a Pirate

So I met the family, managing not to kill anyone, spill anything or walk into anyone. That right there is success people. I just ate a pizza and burnt my mouth to a crisp, but it’s all ok people!

You know why? I have popcorn. Not just any popcorn, but CHEESY popcorn. And Puzzle Pirates. Yes, I am still going on about this. I have been addicted to this little game ever since I wrote this little post here. I know this is quite a random post, but hey, that’s what happens when I don’t have much to tell you about.

You should all start playing Puzzle Pirates then we WordPressians shall pillage and win all the battles we face, gaining treasure and even owning penguins! This is my pirate:



I don’t look like this in real life, and I don’t have a penguin either. But just think of the fun you could have as a pirate like this!

I swear I’ll write something interesting soon!
