Rocking your world Friday!!!

Hi everybody!!!!

So it is Friday again! They certainly do fly by, don't they?! Well I haven't done too much this week, but it has been a good one! I had my theory exam on Monday, 50 short questions. I am pretty positive I did well.... or at least passed!!!

I am grateful that I also got another week on my Course work, they told us we had to have it completely finished by last week, then when we got there, they told us we had till next week!! A little bit annoying but got to redo my Scrapbook again! yayyyy!!!

Also, my brother passed on his old Pokemon games, so that is keeping me occupied!! I have always loved those games, so addictive! PIKAAAAA-CHU!!

I also have been really enjoying cooking, I made a really nice tomato chicken casserole and garlic and cheese potato bake! The family seemed to love it! I love cooking with some good music on, it is a real mood lifter! There is nothing like baking cupcakes, and decorating them all pretty!!

I know I am always waffling on about my doggies, but they brighten up my weeks so much!! I don't know what I'd do without them, will really miss them when I leave!

I am really grateful for the fact I have such wonderful people in my life!! Also, the fact that John's family have made me feel so welcome!! They have been so sweet to me, I can't wait to spend some more time with them!! I am so grateful for how happy John makes me too! He is just amazing!!

Now I better go, before I get too soppy!!! hehehe!! I hope everyone has the most wonderful weekend/week!! Bye for now!! x x x x x x x x x x x

Make-up scrap book!

So I thought I would put up a few pictures of my Make-up scrapbook so far! It isn't fully finished yet, but getting there!! It is just a mixture of pictures I have collected over time. I used wrapping paper for the backgrounds, also some engraving card (the black pages) and scratched in the writing, I used jewels and glitter (where would a girl be without them!?) Hope you like!!

I feel so alive....

I have had such a great few days after a few rough ones, you know when you have a few bumps along the road, it makes the smooth that much sweeter?

"I wish that I could have this moment for life, cause in this moment I just feel so alive..."

I have realised that life is what you make it, if you want to be close with people, you have to be willing to put the effort in. If you want to be the best version of yourself, you have to work at it. To be honest, I don't think there is any feeling like knowing you are being the best you can be. I haven't ever felt like that until lately, I have never pushed myself to be better, I just used to sit there and be unsatisfied with who I was. Always finding excuses for myself.

It feels so good to also actually believe that I can be more.... not just say it. I feel this life pulsing through me now, whereas before, I used live, not be alive. I usually give up when I am not good at something, but once you get past that mind frame, a new world opens up. One where you can achieve anything you want if you put your mind to it, one where excuses are pointless. I know bad things happen to people, things that seem like huge obstacles... but if you can get past that, you can be great. I have had my fair share of issues in the past and I would blame them for my mistakes, but I realised what does this achieve? It just reminds me of my misfortune and also lets them win. If you just say no, I made this mistake because I messed up, you will grow and learn. The mind is such a powerful thing, I think we sometimes forget what it is capable of.

It is a really strange feeling I have right now! I feel almost empowered... in control of myself.

I am grateful for everyday I get and I am not going to waste any more failing myself and others around me, simply because I have "Excuses". Man is nothing but his own self portrait.....

If you want to be better, don't say it, do it.... I started to realise this and I have never felt so good. This is the first time I have actually applied myself to being better, because this time, I really have something I want to be better at... something I want for life....

Rocking your world friday!

So I missed last week! I was over in England and didn’t get back till late Sunday and was far too tired to catch up, naughty Fi!!

So this is going to cover the last 2 weeks! I am really enjoyed my trip to England, I saw Anathema, they blew my mind!! Had such a good night on Friday with my peeps! Next time I go over, I won’t be coming home!!

I am so grateful for the presents John got me!! I received a beautiful dress and lots of other goodies!! Also, would like to thank Red for her lovely pressies and the cake she made me! CAKE OF DEATH! I got home on Sunday and Dad had made me another cake!! Spoilt to say the least! Hehe 

I am so happy my mock exam went well on Monday, mum was a great model and behaved herself! The examiner seemed pleased with me. I have my real college theory exam on Monday, little bit nervous because I am terrible at studying! Fingers crossed all goes well!

I am grateful for Fish and chips, yes…. Here in Ireland, our fish and chips are terrible. Melanie and John made it their mission to get me fish and chips the first night I arrived and it was amazing!!Then red made it her mission to get me more!! I have a feeling I may put on a couple of stone when I live there.. hehe!

I am really grateful for people’s ability to give things second chances. Sometimes things can get quite difficult and it seems like the easiest thing to do is give up on it, but some things are just worth the effort, worth the time.

I have been going to sleep at 4 or 5 and waking up at 1 or 2 in the afternoon, trying to pass the days. Today, I got up at 9:30 and had a healthy breakfast and went for a walk! I am feeling much better! (Thanks John for kicking me up the ass!) I am waiting for a new start, but that doesn’t mean in the time being I should waste away!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and week ahead!!

Anathema- Dreaming Light

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard...

Suddenly... life has new meaning
Suddenly... feeling is being

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise
Dreaming light and ...

I feel you but I don't really know you
I dreamed of you from the moment I saw you
And I've seen the sunrise in your eyes
The sky... the sea... the light

So live your dream beneath the northern horizon
Be at peace, set your heart in flight again
For the light is truth...
The light is you...

Rocking your world friday!

Hi everyone!! This post is a little bit later than last weeks 4 am post!! Feeling a little bit more reasonable this week!

I had a tough week last week, but everything is looking up!! Now for my gratefuls :)

I am grateful for food, I love cooking a really nice meal, sitting down in front of the telly and enjoying! This week I cooked pasta in a white sauce with salmon seasoned with Cajun, it was yummy! Oh, and my favourite, it is like Carbonara... actually, it is more like Macoroni and cheese, let's not kid ourselves.. hehe!

(Yes, you guessed it, I am a pasta lover!)

I am grateful for my internet, I had a panic attack because it stopped working last night!! Thank god it was Ok this morning!! Me and my friends were laughing, thinking of when we were younger and the only thing we used to go on the computer for was Paint!! or sometimes Wordart if we were feeling adventurous!

I am glad Katie (My teacher) said that my portfolio was really good! It put my mind at rest, I was stressing out so much thinking it wasn't good enough!! Now it is just to get it finished!

I am so looking forward to my little holiday to England next week! I am flying over on Wednesday, and on friday... wait for it... I get to see Anathema!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK!!!! and it is my Birthday on sunday (though, I am leaving on sunday..  boooo) Looking forward to the big cake Red is going to make for me!! ;) I can't wait to see everyone, missed them all so much!! In fact, I am going to put up a link to an Anathema song, have a listen if you get the chance!!

Actually, whilst we are on the subject of music, here is another track, absolutely stunning!!

I am grateful for new beginnings, for the chance to start over. Life is continuous learning and we should never close our eyes to it. If we do, well, that is just plain stubborn!!

Now- One of my negatives for the week.... Stubbing your toes. It has to be one of the most stupidly painful things possible!! The only thing you can do is hop around like an idiot, screaming swear words as loud as you can. Why, god, why?!?!

Anyway, I better go and do some study!! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and a fantasic week ahead!! I still don't know how to do links on here... Lol!!!
