My Goals For My Blog

This is my first time doing a post like this, it’s going to be all about my goals for my blog. So I see a lot of people setting monthly goals for their blogs and social media followers, usually how many followers they want to push to get and things they want to achieve on different platforms, which i thought would be good to do the first Tuesday of every month then i thought it would just get annoying, so i want your opinion, would it be too much? or would you like to hear my monthly goals?

For now im just going to tell you over all what I want to achieve for my blog, so here it is.

Like everyone I want to make a living out of it and do just this full time, ive always had a great interest in business and always wanted my own so it was always a root i wanted to go down. With my blog i can build my own business and doing everything i love writing, beauty, fashion and travel and loving to read and write helps a lot, along with writing about things you do love and have an interest in. I know its mad a 15 year old talking about wanted her own business and all, but i think its good that i chose the path i want to take so young and know what im working and pushing for.

My goals are pretty simple, I just want to success in what I love, like everyone so basic i know!, I hope to do big posts on certain subjects like, living with my pain, friendships, school, and anything like that. All I really hope to do is help people and show you my perspective on life as a 15 year old girl who don’t want to be a normal 15 year old and follow the group or sit in town with friends and do nothing, I want to experience as much as I can in life and hopefully I can show people who you always have and option and your own opinion and don’t have to follow the crowd and do things because your friends do. I figured that out at 12 years old when i went to my first concert, and listening to myself and no one else really helped me.

So out of all that, my only really goal is to do what makes me happy, take everything as it comes, experience, give my advice and opinion as best I can and help people. Helping people is something I love to do, since I was 12 and starting listening to myself and figuring my self out, I said I wouldn’t be like my past “friends” and chose who I wanted to be and helping people always stuck and I enjoy it. I was like professional counselor for years, everyone would ask me for advice and trust me with what was on their mind and say I helped them a lot and that made me happy.

also im not sure when I should post, like I write a post and I’m like okay I want to post that now, no need to wait haha.

So I’m posting a day early, my bad?

Follow my social medias and hit me up if you want advice or help! and if you have any topics you’d like me to talk about or give my opinion on let me know.

School, College, Future.

Today’s post is going to be different from my others, it’s about school, college and future. So as you may or may not know I am homeschooled, I have been for a little over a year now. In Ireland we have our Junior Cert cycle which I have done and our Leaving Cert cycle which I’ve yet to do, so the Junior Cert is a three year course then a year break (if you want) then the Leaving Cert is two years, currently I am on the year break and have yet to decide if I’d like to return to school and continue to finish school off and do the Leaving Cert. I thought about just going back and doing it and getting it over with now so if I do want to go to college id have the option then my Mam told me about the fetac levels and how I could build myself up to get into college and I was so up to that, the leaving Cert didn’t even exist to me anymore.

Fetac is a course with different levels, you choice what you want to study and if you pass and get to level 6 you can go to college and study what you’ve been doing in the fetac, which is what I really want to do and I hope to do it.

I’ve a big interest in business and social media marketing, things like that which I hope to study and built a career out of.

So last Thursday I attended a seminar in Athlone, which was all about being homeschooled, going to do your junior and leaving Cert and other ways to go to college without them. It went on from 10:30am-3pm, it had various speakers and was very interesting, I learned a good bit about my options and what I can do. I’m just hoping I’ll be able to do what I want to do.

A couple of months ago I told myself I was going back to do the leaving Cert end of story, I convinced myself it was the only way I could get into college, do good and make a career because that’s what everyone is told, you need your leaving Cert for everything and without it you’ll get no where, we never got told you could study something you loved and had an interest in and make a career from that instead of trying to balance 5/6 subjects and make sure to get 5 passes (think that’s the amount). This is definitely the way I wanna go and that seminar really helped me out about it.

My Mam also said I could take another year out of school and just built my blog because it’s something I really wanna do but I think it’ll drag it out too much and getting my studies done at a young age is better!

Ask I think I’m gonna start posting every Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. What do you think?

Life With Constant Pain At 15

Pain?

What is pain?

Is it a feeling or a thought? Dose it exist if you can’t see the pain?

I am in pain every day of my life for nearly 4 years, although it isn’t as visible as a broken arm or leg, that doesn’t mean it’s non-existing. In those 4 years I spend the first year ignoring the pain, i acted as if it wasnt there until it got to a point where hiding it wasnt an option. The following 2 years i spent in pain and very unhappy, i spent most of my time at doctors and hospital appointments and they all told me they couldn’t see a problem and said it was just anxiety. With all the pain and appointments i missed a lot of school, everyday i would have to go in and explain myself to the principles, teachers and students and for what? them to all turn around and tell me i was lying? i was never in pain or suffered in any way, to them i didn’t want to go to school and all my pains were a joke and not real. They would ask why weren’t you in? id reply i was sick, ahh yeah “sick”. These were people i called my friends, but they weren’t really, they were only friends so they would have someone to sit with at lunch or go to town with, they never really cared. I once went to my school office 3 times in one day asking to call my Mam to go home and they wouldn’t let me, i was crying in the bathroom in so much pain calling my Mam off my own phone and within seconds no joke my mam and dad were there and when she arrived the principal was nowhere to be seen. The school would compare me to others with sickness saying they had it worse than me and they never knew anything about me or my pain yet they could tell me someone had it worse than me. They couldn’t feel or see my pain which made them believe it wasnt there and it wasnt real but it was very much real.

I spend every second of everyday in pain, yes it affects my life but that doesn’t mean i cant do anything with it. Every day the pain in there just some days it’s very faded and others it unbearable. One day i could run for hours then the next i could be crying and not able to move from my bed, but like everything you’ve the good and the bad days. Yes i may be able to do things, like travel and enjoy concerts because its stuff i love to do and I don’t give into the pain but some days it’s so bad I have to give in which has sometimes stopped me from going and doing the things I love, there is only so much your body can take.

Now I have yet to be diagnosed but the doctors are heading to me having Fibromyalgia like my mother.

There are many symptoms of Fibromyalgia  but here are some of the common symptoms..

  1. Pain & Tender Points.
  2. Fatigue.
  3. Sleeping Disorders.

  8. Morning Stiffness.
  9. Chronic Headaches.

me a 15 year old has 32 out 37 of the symptoms I listed.

 

Lady Gaga, its amazing how she dances and get on stage and doesn’t stop doing what she loves because of her pains. She is and always will be an inspiration.

 

And for the 4th year of me being in pain, I left school, started homeschooling and my journey of blogging, ive cut all the negative people out of my life, doing what I wanna do regardless of what others think, all thanks to my Mam & Dad and i couldn’t be happier.

Why I Started A Blog

Why I Started A Blog

Something everyone wants to know about everything and anything is why did you start? what motivated you to do it? do you believe you/it will succeed?. So today I will be talking about all that and why I wanted to start!. Of course the number one reason for me is I love to writing no matter what is going on in my life or what time of the day it is writing is my escape, it’s like I forget about everything in life and just write about things my mind throws at me haha! I also love to travel and see new places and of course I love fashion and make up too! I thought about doing this for a good year or more but never pushed myself to do because I was in school and it took all the energy I had and just drained me on top of that of course I had my doubts, I worried what everyone in school would think if I did and got very bad anxiety over thinking about others opinions. Then in January I told my mam and dad how I felt about it all and that I wanted to do it and they gave me the push I needed so I stopped thinking about others and starting thinking about myself and what I wanted to do and it helped so much I’m happier than I’ve ever been. So basically what I’m trying to say is push all the negative out of your life and do what makes you happy, you never know what might happen when you just be you! but anyways I’m so exited to finally start and get this blog up and running! Expect loads of content coming, I’ve so many ideas I cant wait to share!
