Sometimes I crack myself up

 

Hey everyone,

Sometimes I crack myself up.  Really.

I can sit here and start working on something and cannot help myself, but start laughing my ass off.  Doesn’t matter what it is either.  When I am in a flow, it doesn’t matter what I am working on exactly, but sometimes I can’t stop laughing. Whether it’s at myself or at what I’m doing or both. And I just realised it doesn’t matter.

People think I’m weird, for all I know you could be thinking at. But do I care? No. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. And if people want to think I’m crazy they can.

I’m so tired of being socially acceptable, restraining myself form being truly me. They do say we only live once. But by not being yourself you’re not living your life.

Anyway….I haven’t written here in a while.  So sorry for that…actually to be honest, I’m not sorry.  My life has been busy as always full of ups and downs. But it’s actually been okay. Better than normal and I don’t see why I automatically feel like saying sorry for simple things, I guess I’ve kind of developed a natural reaction.

I’m not going to write about all the things I have done whilst but I can tell you that it was mainly school. I feel like I always write about myself, in a way it is my blog but still. How are YOU? *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Forgiveness

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while but I thought I’d write about forgiveness today.

Forgiveness is really important. And a lot of people don’t understand what it actually means and this is coming from a person who thought they did (emphasis on thought.)

Forgiveness is not saying that what happened was okay because what happened most likely was not okay at all. Forgiveness is not saying it could have been different but i will move on. It’s not deciding that yeah I will be a really nice person and forgive them.

Instead, forgiveness is accepting what happened and the way it happened and understanding that what happened couldn’t have been any other way. Forgiveness is not letting the past hold you prisoner. It is: not letting the past change your future.

If you forgive you don’t only let yourself live in the present but also you let the person that was wrong forgive themselves.

Of course whatever happens may change you as a person and that’s okay, you might become a bit more distrustful but that’s okay. Things change and so do people.

So what I’m trying to say is if you have someone that’s done wrong to you, forgive them. If not for their sake than for your own because you do not want their mistakes ruing your future. *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

New Year’s Resolutions

Hey everybody,

As promised I have a new post for you guys and seeing as it is so very close to New Year’s Day I decided I wanted to make a list of my New Year’s Resolutions!!! I normally make these lists but I honestly never really keep any of the resolutions but y’know it’s worth the try & this does always make New Year’s feel like more of a fresh start and make me feel more organised.

  1. So my top resolution is studying. This is a bit of a boring one but I feel like if you start studying early you won’t have as much to study when it comes to the oh so dreaded exam season as you will know what you learnt before. In addition, studying really does no bad so I really hope I will keep this resolution!
  2. Keeping healthy and doing more exercise. This is becoming a bit of a classic and non-original one isn’t it? But I know for a fact I need to start moving a bit more often and eating a little less junk food. I feel like this is a perfect one because it’s just been Christmas and I don’t know about you but I’ve certainly gained  a pound if not more!
  3. Spending less time submerged in the online world – if that is the right way to put it!I feel like things online have affected my happiness levels and that change was for the worse so basically the online world was one of the top reasons for me being unhappy this year. But also I feel like I spent a lot of time staring at the screen of my laptop or phone and not really gaining much from. I feel like I sound like a right old grandma in this post so I just want to put it out here – I am in fact a teenage girl and I am nowhere near becoming a grandma quite yet!

So that’s it! I realise it’s quite a short list of resolutions but there’s really no point in coming up with a whopping long list of things that you know straight away you’re not gonna keep.

Do let me know if you have enjoyed this post and if you have any resolutions this year or if you just did not bother making a list because you know you won’t keep any of them! *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Live a ‘want to’ life not a ‘have to’ one

Hey everybody,

I’ve recently been thinking (surprise surprise) and anyway I’ve realised that there are a lot of things in our lives that we just have to do. I’m talking GCSE’s (if you’re not English or you don’t live in England these are very quite important exams you have to take in Year 10 and 11), working, going to school and a lot of other things. And no I’m not saying don’t work or go to school or bother with exams in general – I’m mainly talking about choices here.

There are a lot of choices you either have already made or will make that will or have been ones you felt or will feel like you have to make. (that was one long sentence) I think it’s important to remember that there’s always an option. After all it is called a “choice” for a reason.

choice
tʃɔɪs/
noun
  1. an act of choosing between two or more possibilities.
    “the choice between good and evil”

Even in the definition (which I was bothered enough to search up) it says “two or more possibilities” and that is key because out of the two or more, one will be a have to choice and one will be a want to choice. The want to choice is most important because its YOUR life and the choice you make will affect YOUR life and your life only. I feel like the society today pressurises us to do a lot of things and you just get surrounded by everyone chanting you have to do this and that. I feel like their only explanation is “because you have to” and as far as explanations go that is not one.

Sometimes it can even get too much, when you stop living and just exist and that’s no good.

You need- no you have to (that’s kind of ironic actually) break the wall that’s stopping you from living your life the way you want to and if that means having to find a hammer IT DOES NOT MATTER because as long as you break the barrier in the end, that’s all that matters.

You do NOT need a permission to live your life to the fullest and neither do you need a reason to do the things you want. Normal is boring and boring is normal so just be you. Make life your own. *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Merry Christmas & an explanation

Hey everyone,

So to start off I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day  wherever you are!

However, the actual reason for me writing this blog post is because I owe you all an explanation. If you are a wonderful person who actually checks if I have a new post up (although I really do doubt there is a person out there who would do that cause quite frankly my posts are not very good.) But anyhow, if you do do that than first of all I’d like to thank you for doing that because it is something that is simply beyond my ability to express how grateful I am for. I have no idea if what I just said made sense so if you get it I congratulate you, if you don’t – you don’t! I keep rambling – back to the point, if you regularly read my blog then you would have noticed that I have not posted since the 7th December (if I’m correct.) And considering that I planned to do Blogmas, the fact that I stopped on the 7th is really no good. So now we’ve gotten to a point where I will finally explain why I ended up never actually doing Blogmas (something I am very sad about (emphasis on “very”))

I was basically very busy (again emphasis on “very”) because it is after all or at least it was the Christmas period when everyone is in a hectic frenzy of buying and wrapping and more buying and spending hours trying to find where the edge of the tape is and so on. Therefore, I simply could not juggle everything going on and ended up having to give up some of the things I planned which meant no Blogmas on rosypopblog. I also have been feeling quite poorly for the past week including today which was really quite sad because being ill on Christmas day is no fun.

So because of these reasons I want to give you an apology you guys deserve and although I wish I could promise that I would definitely do Blogmas next year I don’t want to make promises and not keep them.That’s why all I’m gonna say is I will try my hardest to do Blogmas next year and I want to say sorry again!

Also, I will definitely have a couple of new posts quite soon so keep your eyes peeled for those! *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Blogmas Day 6 – Christmas Wishlist

Hey everyone,

christmas-day-6

I am so sorry that I didn’t post anything yesterday I was just so busy with school!!

So this is kind of gonna be a rushed post because I don’t have much time to write this but recently everyone’s kind of been doing their Christmas wishlist and I personally love  to read those posts so I thought why not do this?

  1. Jackets/Coats

Okay so my wardrobe is really lacking coats and jackets plus my coat is ugly and getting too small for me so I just see Christmas as the perfect time to get a coat that could be that little bit more expensive and nicer. And I really want this white coat by Tommy Hilfiger and yes I know that a REALLY expensive brand but it is a wishlist for a reason! I also really like jackets from Nike or Adidas  although I do love more of the ones form Adidas (again i know they’re expensive brands but I’m not saying I am actually going to get this for Christmas!)

2.  Trainers/Shoes

Before i start let me just say I LOVE SHOES!!! Especially trainers so I am definitely asking fro shoes this Christmas (and probably the next also.)  I am not going to really start listing all the shoes I really want because quite frankly that would take waaaaayyyy too long however I am going to put some shoes I really love below:

3. Books

I basically really want books and that is all I’m going to say because my next post is going to be about books I want to read and ones I have read!!!

4. Clothes from Romwe as it is literally my favourite brand, it has sooooo much I love which i just think is actually quite rare when it comes to browsing through clothing websites.

5. Lush

A perfect Christmas gift would be something from Lush because let’s be honest – who doesn’t like baths, bubbles and anything smelly (in a good way!)

6. Candles 

I really don’t care what candle I get. Okay that is a straight up lie cause obviously everyone has different tastes scent-wise and so I do care what candles I get. But what I meant to say is I love candles, especially if they are Christmas ones so candles are definitely on my list this year!

There is really not much else I want because Christmas to me is a time of celebration and happiness and I personally don’t particularly think of it as a present time so I don’t have a massive list! if you have done a wishlist post please link it in the comments because I do love getting inspirations (not just for my presents but for things to get people!) *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Blogmas Day 5 – Christmas Playlist

Hey everyone,

christmas-day-5

You know it’s Christmas when the shops start playing Christmas music and you hear it on the radio. So today I thought I’d share with you my Christmas playlist (do let me know if I haven’t got any Christmas classics or if you know any other Christmas songs that you think I’d like because I do love my Christmas music A LOT!) Also I am just so proud of myself for working out how to paste that Christmas playlist box thing below *pats on the back* it took FOREVER!

I think Christmas is the time when you have an excuse to listen to festive music nonstop 24/7, to be honest I have been listening to Christmas music since June but hey who says you can’t? (Well actually my mum does but rules are made to be broken apart from there really aren’t any rules aaaand I am starting to ramble so I’ll let you just look at my playlist now!!!)

*virtual hugs* and I hope you liked no loved this post!!! ♥

Lots of love,

Limits

Hey everyone,

christmas-day-4

There’s a limit to everything. And it’s important to know your limit. And right now I’m talking about people’s limits. Every person has a limit and it’s important to realise that if you keep pushing and pushing one day that person will break. But I think what’s more important to realise than realising that every single person has a limit,is that if you go over that line it will be too late. Because after you’ve crossed that line, you can’t go back and undo all of the things you’d done to make that happen. And everyone needs to understand this because sometimes the person that breaks could be someone that you love. In fact, most of the time it is someone so close to you and that is why you don’t realise that person has a limit. They’re so close to you that you just keep pushing and pushing and pushing , thinking they’re okay, they might get a bit mad but they’ll forgive me, nothing will happen. But then it does and you can’t go back. Even if you make up it won’t erase what’s happened, that person won’t forget cause sadly our brains like to remember the bad things that happen to us. I know this is kind of becoming a rant but I’m not just saying this for no reason because it won’t be just that person that will get affected. It will be you and it will gnaw at you until you break too. You might think that sounds a bit dramatic but it’s true. This isn’t the saddest thing though. the saddest thing is people don’t learn from their mistakes. if it’s someone close to you sooner or later they will forgive you but you’ll think it’s okay to push them again. And the  cycle just goes on. until that person as well as yourself completely breaks to a point where you can’t be fixed.

The point is, everyone needs to learn from their mistakes because one day or another it will help whether it’s a small thing or a big thing.

Lots of love,

Blogmas Day 3 – The nearly merry Christmas Tag

Hey everyone,

christmas-day-3

First of all, on my last post  Misstery blog said “Stay true to yourself. Always. Because sometimes we are the only thing we have ❤” and I just think those are beautiful words so I wanted to share them with you guys!

I am sooooooooo excited because it is BLOGMAS DAY 3 AND CHRISTMAS IS IN 22 DAYS!!!!!!

I was reading Sareena’s blog and I came across her Blogmas Day 1 post which was the nearly merry Christmas Tag! And seeing as I love Christmas I thought I’d take part seeing as she’s tagged everyone who’s read it to do it! SO DO CHECK HER BLOG OUT!!! Anyway here goes:

The Merry Christmas Tag Questions:

1. Use one noise to describe how excited you are for Christmas.

CHRISTMASSSSSSSOMGIMSOEXCITED (technically this is one word🙂)

2. What is the best present you’ve ever received?

Good question and the answer is I don’t really know, I have always loved all my Christmas presents so I can’t really choose..oh wait no I can – once I got this shirt and I know that doesn’t sound that exciting but that day I forgot it was Christmas and I fell over and saw a present and then I was like”MOTHER HOW DID YOU NOT REMIND ME IT WAS CHRISTMAS OMG OMG OMG” it felt like you know when you think it’s a Monday but it’s actually a Friday?

3. What is the worst present you’ve ever received?

Well to be honest I can’t really pick cause I just love Christmas way too much to think of presents that I don’t like.

4. As a kid, did a sibling ever receive a present that you wished was for you?

No, not really because I just have a brother so I never really liked anything of his that much. I did however, always want what my friends had, especially if that something was pink, glittery etc.

5. Sing a line from your favourite Christmas song.

BABY PLEASE COME HOMEEEEEE THEY’RE SINGIN’ DECK THE HAAAAALLS BUT IT’S NOT LIKE CHRISTMAS AT ALLLL CAUSE I REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE HEREEE AND ALL THE FUN WE HAD LAST YEAAAAR (Baby Please Come Home by Michael Bauble)

6. Rename a reindeer.

Ashwin – yh random don’t really know where that came form to be honest.

7. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

THIS IS LIKE HARDER THAN MY CHEMISTRY TEST!! Everything!! I love it when the sky goes a really pretty pink early in the mornings and in the evenings. I love the crisp coldness and that weather when you sit at home watching Christmas movies, your Christmas candles are lit, you’re wearing Christmas pyjamas and drinking Christmas hot chocolate okay you kinda get the idea. i just love sooo much about it!

8. When do you start getting excited for Christmas?

Well this year I got excited in June and that’s when I started listening to Christmas music. Then I think in September I started watching the movies. I wrote out all my Christmas cards in October. In November I bought Christmas advent calendars, candles and presents for everyone and now I AM JUST SO EXCITED I MIGHT EVEN BURST.

9. Do you use advent calendars?

HELL YEAH! I’VE GOT TWO THIS YEAR! I open my calendar in the evenings even though most people do that in the morning but I wait cause it gives me something to look forward to at the end of the day!!! I’ve also bought one for my Nan’s dog so technically I have three because let’s face it I’m the one that gets most excited in my family about opening an advent calendar for a dog.

10. Recite one line from your favourite Christmas/Holiday movie.

“This is extremely important. Will you please tell Santa that instead of presents this year, I just want my family back. No toys. Nothing but Peter, Kate, Buzz, Megan, Linnie, and Jeff. And my aunt and my cousins. And if he has time, my Uncle Frank. Okay?” this said Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) from Home Alone I REALLY DO LOVE HOME ALONE and “You’re skipping Christmas! Isn’t that against the law?”- so true and that’s Spike form Christmas with the Kranks.

11. Share a funny Christmas memory.

When I was 8 I tied my brother up in garlands and attached a label to him saying “To Santa back to the North Pole” my parents laughed sooo much but I never got why until I kind of grew up. I clearly didn’t like my brother that much did I.

13. Do you have any Christmas traditions?

We go on a Christmas walk every Christmas, have advent calendars (obviously) and LOTS OF FOOD but apart from that not really. Oh and we celebrate New Year’s Day even though that’s not really a Christmas tradition.

14. Real or fake Christmas tree?

REAL FRO SURE. MY BROTHER, MY MUM AND I ALL LOVE REAL CHRISTMAS TREES! Apart from my dad but who cares because we win anyway.My dad says that it’s too much cleaning afterwards and then you gotta cut it up and dispose of it correctly etc. But I think it’s worth having a beautiful, pine-smelling Christmas tree every year in your home.

5. Pictures with Santa…yay or nay?

YAY! I loveeeeeee SANTA!!! Apart from when I was little all the Santa’s I ever met looked half-drunk and creepy but I STILL DO LOVE SANTAAAA!!!

So I tag everyone to do this because I feel like everyone should do this!!! Okay that’s kind of a lie cause to be honest I’m just not bothered enough to find people to tag but I STILL DO WANT EVERYONE TO DO THIS!!! *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,
