Just a bit of a chat...

Hi guys! Hope you're all doing well :) I felt like doing an update kind of post today and just have chat about life... 

I've been back at school for almost a month now and I'm having trouble picking out outfits. It's very ironic considering in a post I did during the summer, I said that I was looking forward to choosing what to wear to school! In the morning, when I'm tired and grumpy and in a rush, the ensemble that I grab from my drawers seems to look and feel fine, but after a couple hours at school, I wish I could pop back home to change! It's so annoying because last year, I felt good everyday just in my normal clothes and didn't over think my outfits. I've been trying to take a more relaxed approached when it comes to clashing colours and patterns lately, but I think it might actually be causing me to be more uptight about what I'm wearing! At 7am, neon orange and bright red might look great together, but at 12pm, I'm hating it. A big shopping splurge sounds delicious to me, but my funds aren't too fab at the moment... I'm going to have to take a long hard look at my clothes and try to feel the love again ;)

On a more positive note, I have managed to rise from my cosy bed at around 7am everyday (for school)! For me, this is a hefty achievement as last year I was getting up as late as possible and had my poor mom banging on my door every five minutes. I love getting up earlier and have established a new routine: I get up, chuck on a hoody and some socks, make my breakfast which is usual apple and peanut butter or rice crispies (and always a cup of tea), then I climb back into bed with my food and watch YouTube videos! It's lovely to have a more relaxed morning and getting back into bed after making breakfast is sooooooo nice. I have to admit, it is tempting to just stay put, but I'm fairly good at jumping in the shower before time has run away from me. 

I had the day off school today due to teachers striking - yesterday was the most Friday-feeling Monday ever! I thought that I had a ton of history homework to do for tomorrow, but turns out it's not in till Friday, yay! Now, a sensible person would do the homework today and get it out of the way, but a procrastinator like me enjoys their day off by doing nothing related to school at all ;) Having said that, I'll probably start feeling guilty and stressed in a bit and will be scrambling for my folders and homework diary - I'm a nerd at heart! 

The Great British Bake Off is on tonight :D I'm looking forward to drooling over the food and chuckling at Mel and Sue's one-liners. I know that lots of people aren't fans of Mel and Sue and think their presence on the show is unnecessary, but I love them! They're hilarious! Speaking of hilarity, Bad Education is also on later... tonight shall be a night of laughter, Jack Whitehall is so funny.

Hope this chatty post wasn't boring! What have you been up to lately?
