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!


Just Go with the Flow!

My boyfriend hates it when I say this, especially as it has become one of my most-used phrases! However it is something I seem to go by, whether its waiting around for something good to happen or whether its my writing, going with the flow just seems to work!

I have always been extremely lazy and I am a professional procrastinator. I just don’t do things.

School work: please, I could get by without homework

Reading for College: only need a few for the exam which are usually easy to flick through the day before the exam, so why bother?

Pay me Fees: sure, I’m always online, but I’m always doing such important things… y’know?

Exercise: ha! I wouldn’t even walk down the stairs. I usually slide down the bannister.

Hey Charlotte, there’s a shop you really need to go to right there and we’re doing nothing, wanna go in and do what you need to do?: Nah, I’ll do it tomorrow. Not bothered today.

These are a few of the major examples of me being an ultimate procrastinator and all-in-all an extremely lazy little girl.

Thank God I have a fast metabolism.

Soooo as you can guess (and possibly know) my writing suffers hugely due to this personality flaw. HOWEVER I have never really tried to fix this, and you know why?

Because everything always works out in the end, and even if it doesn’t, everything happens for a reason. I am no philosopher or anything, but I truly believe that.

On one of the award posts I had to answer the question ‘Would you go back and change any events in your life?‘ and I know that I honestly wouldn’t change anything about my life before this moment. Everything that I have done has brought me here and has brought different things and people into my life. I am the happiest I have ever been, literally, and had you asked me 2 years ago whether or not I would change things, I would have gone back to the day of my birth and changed so much that I would be unrecognisable.

So, my little piece of advice to day is not to think about how thing could have been, would have been, will be, JUST GO WITH THE FLOW!

I Really Should Start Studying…

So after yesterday’s post where I spoke about my newly found Competitive Streak I somehow managed to get a new follower (hello new follower!) and surpassed my old ‘most views per day’ number. You guys are making it hard for me to get rid of the new competitive Charlotte!

I don’t mind though, really- I love seeing the notifications icon glow orange, it genuinely makes me excited and heats my body with happiness. That could be because I associate the colour orange with fire, but I’m going to say that it’s because I feel warm inside by the amount of people who actually read my Blog!

Now, I have openly admitted in the past how my Blog is not the most exciting thing in the world- but I am actually planning on making it better!

I have no idea how yet… Well, I have a few small ideas, like writing about things other than writing, which is a slightly obvious option, but it’s a start at least!

One other thing I meant to mention earlier than this is that I am aiming to read thirty books this year. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but with college, writing and hopefully soon a job it will keep me on my toes! I have read 6 books so far this year, so I’m planning on writing a post about that too and keeping you all up to date with the various books I’ve been reading- I started Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet, so at least I have a super great book to tell you about when I finish it!

I would hugely appreciate if anyone has any ideas on what you would want to see in a Blog, my Blog to be exact, that you comment below! I know that seems like a lazy way out just to ask people what they want, but as I’m sure you all know, you never know till you ask!

NOW I really do have to start studying. Otherwise I’ll never get into third year! I’ll update later about my writing hopefully, 2,500 aim again today, will make sure I get it before my week in college begins tomorrow morning!


You know what’s frustrating? When I am only 200 words- yes, 200 WORDS away from my goal for the day and yet I’m unable to get myself to just start writing again. I was in college today, alone for most of the day because I had earlier classes than my friends, so I got a good bit done- around 2,300.

I was quite happy, but my boyfriend has given me the challenge of being finished my novel by Friday as I more than likely won’t be able to write this weekend. So I have turned to my Blog to get some inspiration to go back to my Word Document and to make my eyes stop falling asleep.

I think I’ll let myself watch an episode of Geoirdie Shore after I write, but not allow myself to watch anything until then.


Just closed the tab that held Youtube, so my room is totally silent bar my extremely loud typing.

Ok, enough procrastinating I am going to get a few hundred more words!! I can totally do this. No TV till I do! And a possibly finished novel by the end of the week!
