New Years Resolutions…

So I’m not great with New Years resolutions… in fact I utterly suck at both making and keeping them, however this year I have set myself two seemingly very easy ones, these are:

  • Cut down on sugar & salt
  • Get this blog back up and running

I am pretty sure I should be able to manage these, the second one is going Ok so far, I have plenty of post subjects listed ready for me to write about! Sugar and salt though, that one could be hard, I’ve gotten to the point where sweet things no longer taste sweet to me anymore, I mean that has to be a bad sign right? the same goes for salty, I have to put a lot of salt on food before i can actually taste it!!

So yeah lets start 2017 as we mean to go on and actually try and keep some resolutions this year!

Anyone else got any New Years Resolutions?

Back Online!

It’s been a while hasn’t it!

I’ll keep it short, but it’s been 5 months since i last posted, that’s quite some time and a lot has happened since then… but i am back online finally, with not the worlds greatest internet connection but it shall do for now until Sky can be bothered to sort it out for us πŸ˜€ i’m just happy to finally have internet again!

After my last post i took a bit of time out to deal with my emotions and such, in that time i completed uni, graduated, moved house and got a new job! so yeah its been a busy 5 months for me and every time i come back here after a few months break (There have been a few) i always feel like i’m starting over, i suffer with bloggers block and never know what to talk about, really i should just not overthink and let my fingers do the work right!

Anyway, i have a few ideas for some posts, i’m creating a new schedule now, i will be posting twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays, so feel free to stick around and join in discussions/thought sharing, i am always excited to hear what others have to say!

Til then Happy Monday everyone and i shall see you all tomorrow!

If you don’t know what Global Games Jam is, here is a short description for you πŸ™‚

G
lobal Games Jam!

This is an annual event that happens all over the world, teams of aspiring games designers and none games designers get together to spend a weekend designing and creating a game, we are given a theme to follow but it’s pretty loose and then we are let loose for the weekend to literally make any kind of game our imaginations can come up with. There are tons of different sites that the event is held at but my local one, the one I went to last year is at Staffordshire University.

Here’s a link to the website, go check it out if you’re interested!

Anyway I
shall leave it at that for now, and ill see you all in the next post!

Back in the game…

Sup guys! 

Happy 2016! 

Hope you all had a great new year, mine was lovely, got to spend it with Arran we spent the evening just chilling watching films, so it was a nice quiet night for us.

So 2016 is going to be a pretty big year for me, I graduate (hopefully) at the beginning of July and then one of my best friends gets married at the end of July, I will also be permanently moving to Stafford once I finish uni which will be awesome, me and Arran will be getting a little flat together, starting our lives together properly and I absolutely can’t wait!

I’m going to be 26 this month as well which is scary! 

You know what I have quite a lot to catch you all up on, so rather than trying to get through it all in this post I shall do lots of individual ones, I’m quite excited to share this stuff with you so keep your eyes peeled, I’ll be back next week with the first of many posts and I shall keep to this schedule for the foreseeable future, one post a week and then if I want to it gives me room to post more during the week as well. 

So, hope you all have a good week and I hope 2016 is going to be as exciting for you as it is for me, let me know some of your big news in the comments! 

See you next week,

Happily Ever After? :D

For real this time…

So… It all started a few months ago, my best friend, Nick, told me he loved me, at the time I was already in a relationship, that I thought was the one (I was wrong), so obviously I rejected him and im ashamed to say that I used the line “I only love you as a friend”, of course I fancied him, he is a very sexy, funny and caring guy, but I didn’t want to admit it cause I thought I was already in love, but I now realise that I wasn’t, I also was afraid that things would get weird between us…

Anyway, everything went on as they were, except now I knew that the flirting actually did mean something, it wasn’t just playing, he genuinely meant something, I think him telling me how he felt brought us closer together, when me and Gilly broke up he was right there with me to help me feel better and take my mind off things, sadly though I only had him for a day or two cause I had to come home for summer, even after I came home though he was checking up on me to make sure I was ok πŸ™‚

Our relationship started one weekend in Stafford, he invited me up for a chilled weekend playing games, which we did, originally my intentions were completely innocent but then I started realising that he is my best friend and an awesome guy, and my intentions became less than innocent ;P fortunately his were too, he initiated but I set the conditions of it being just casual, though after that weekend I knew it was going to be more than casual, it was the best weekend I had, had in a very long time πŸ˜€ and then it all just sort o snowballed from there, I’ve spent my summer working and going to visit him and he’s been working and visiting me πŸ˜€

We of course are now officially boyfriend and girlfriend and it is very much not casual, I love him and I know he loves me, he is amazing and makes me laugh hysterically at the most stupidest things, I don’t know how he does it but he does, he makes me happy and above all he is my best friend, I can tell him anything, this is the most open I have ever been in a relationship and it feels so nice not to worry about where you stand or how they will react to what you say πŸ™‚

I love him ❀

Anyway, that was my way of telling you guys that I have a new boyfriend and he is awesome!

Hope you’re all as happy in your lives as I am in mine right now!

Oreos & Chocolate Milk!

Sup Guys!

Long time no speak right…. I know I suck at keeping on top of this but nevermind!

Anyway, it has been a very awesome 2 months, so much to tell you!

First though I must say, what a nice day it has been today, a great day to be sat indoors babysitting your PC while it upgrades to Windows 10…. I can’t complain though, I’ve been waiting ages for it to upgrade and now it finally has!

I’ve also been having mad cravings for Oreo’s and chocolate milk recently so that is what I am currently enjoying, as well as some random music on Spotify!

Decided it was about time I got Spotify, I get bored with the music that I have on my phone very fast so Spotify is pretty much perfect for me Β£10 for access to thousands of songs! can’t go wrong with that!

In other news…… 57 DAYS TIL DISNEY!!

So excited, I’m going to buy so many different flavours of Oreo’s while I’m over there, anyone got any recommendations?

Anyway, I’m going to go finish sorting out my PC, probably get the WordPress App so it’s easier for me to remember to post! πŸ˜› that’s the idea at least…

I’ll catch you up on everything else over the next few days, as well as a Windows 10 first impressions post!

See you guys later!

Broke My Streak!

Sup Guys!

Ah it was going so well!

I broke my blogging streak I was 2 days away from 30 days dammit! and all cause I went to see Jurassic World and didn’t get home til super late, was way too tired to blog when I got home, should have done it in the morning before I went out!

Anyway, hows it been these last two days?

I’ve been pretty busy, yesterday I was out most of the day with my parents, nothing much interesting happened, we just went and did a bit of shopping, then went to the local garden centre…. again! I swear I’ve been there almost every day this past week πŸ˜›

Friday I went with my mom to fetch my sister from Birmingham, think I mentioned it in Thursdays blog? she was coming home til today to go to Download Festival to see Muse. Well we spent the whole day out more or less, then me, my sister, my cousin and their friend all went to the cinema to see Jurassic World…. my god it is amazing, don’t worry no spoilers, not today at least, it will get its own post in a couple of days though πŸ˜€

Today has been a pretty chilled day, my aunt came round for a bit and we all watched the first Jurassic Park film cause it was on TV, had a nice dinner and then dropped my sister back in Birmingham so she could get her coach back up to Chester πŸ™‚ pretty relaxed day!

So yeah, that’s been my weekend! Hop you guys all had an awesome weekend too πŸ˜€

This week is gonna be an awesome week too πŸ˜€ I’m off to my friend Nick’s house for a few days on Tuesday, will be a good time, I’m really looking forward to it πŸ˜€ I won’t be back til Friday, but I’m sure I’ll tell you all about how it went when I get back πŸ˜€

Just gotta buy my train tickets now! That’s on tomorrows to do list, as well as a trip to the doctors, packing, painting my nails, showering, blogging, and probably so many other things…. tomorrow is gonna be an exciting and busy day!

Can’t wait for Tuesday, excited and nervous all in one go!

Anyway, ima go chill and listen to some Eminem πŸ˜€ Hope you all have a great night and I shall see you all tomorrow!

Sarah

P.s. That pic blog I promised on Thursday, it’s coming, just the weathers been crap so haven’t really had chance to take any good pics πŸ˜€

New Chapter…

Sup Guys!

Today has been a pretty nothing day, haven’t done much, went into town this afternoon to pay my rent for my student house in Stafford, had a mooch round the shops and came home!

I also went to the garden center with my mom today, I didn’t particularly want to, but she was nagging me so I thought its easier to just say yes than have her moan at me πŸ˜› it was an alright trip I guess, I just get frustrated easily when something that should take ten minutes takes an hour πŸ˜› but I should be used to that with my mom by now!

It’s been an interesting last few weeks, so much has happened πŸ˜› including an amazing weekend with Nick, he is my best friend, he makes me laugh, he’s always there for me and I love hanging out with him πŸ™‚ we’ve had a very heartfelt conversation tonight, after we stepped things up a notch at the weekend πŸ˜‰ and I cannot stop smiling! he makes me feel amazing! πŸ˜€

Anyway, my sister is coming home tomorrow! she’s off to Download for the day on Saturday and we might be going to see the new Jurassic Park movie on Friday! should be a fun weekend, but, there is no way it will live up to last weekend πŸ˜›

You guys got any plans for the weekend?

I’m so ready to embrace this new chapter of my life! it’s going to be amazing πŸ˜€

See you all tomorrow!

Sarah

SLEEP!

Sup Guys!

How’s it going?

Hope you all had an awesome weekend, I know I did, was a ton of fun πŸ˜€

Spent the weekend in Stafford hanging out with Nick and Dodds, playing board games, Guitar Hero, Tekken, Pool and staying up way too late πŸ˜›

Nick also got me to play Bloodbourne today, it is an awesome and pretty game, but, sadly I suck so bad at it, think I died a million times before I even got to the first boss fight…

Totally worth it though!

I’m now ridiculously tired and aching like mad but hey, it is most definitely the sign of a good time right!

Other than that though I’m feeling damn good! πŸ˜€

Tomorrow im off out with my mom, not sure where were going yet, probably for a walk and a picnic or something, I guess I’ll find out in the morning!

It’s shaping up to be a great summer!

Anyway, im gonna go chill now and probably go to bed very soon, need some sleep!

See you guys tomorrow!
