"ask me how deep the ocean is"

07:19


The past couple of weeks has been a strange mix of everything. I predicted good things for the month of March and upon reflection, now that it is April, I'm unsure how March went. I feel like it was a pretty good month, a few bad decisions here and there, but overall a good month. Again, I feel like I should let you guys know that I am feeling positive, in a wishful thinking sorta sense.

I also must add that this year is sprinting ahead without me, so many big plans to be completed in what feels like no time. I'm about to start my last term of my second last year in secondary school and things are apparently supposed to be getting serious. It doesn't feel serious, but with the massive amount of university and career lectures that I'm going to have to sit through for the next 2 months, it's bound to feel serious, I hope. 




Last week I went to Somerset, England. I went for a European Student Convention with my school, which is basically a week where schools and homeschoolers from all over Europe that use the ACE curriculum come and compete against each other in different categories such as sports, academics, art and photography, platform, etc. 

I competed in quite a number of events, but the major thing for me (and 3 other of my friends) was the 'one act play' we entered into. We entered late and left ourselves about 3 months to prepare, not a whole lot of time for first-time entrants. There was also a huge amount of pressure for myself, Georgia, and Chloe, to do well due to the fact that we have been apart of a youth theatre group for a couple of months now. It's pretty nerve-wrecking to do a 10 minute play in front of 8 judges and an audience, but we gave it our best award-winning performance and all our 3 months of on and off hard work paid off and we got gold! Massive achievement, celebrated by an 11 pm call in to McDonalds, bliss.

I managed to purchase a disposable camera on the third day of our seven day stay (it's so much easier to get disposables in the UK as opposed to here in Ireland) and got them printed yesterday, and I'm so pleased with how the pictures turned out.



We stayed in Burnham-on-Sea, a gorgeous beach town. I feel gorgeous may be an understatement. We faced some horrid (term used loosely) weather, yet the town still maintained it's beauty. I may have been the only one to feel this way though, but I couldn't help the fact that when I looked out into the fogginess, dreariness, and absolute stillness of the beach all I could see were stills from the movie Submarine.

the galaronies. together we managed to screw up our whole vocabulary and become incoherent messes in front of virtually everyone we talked to. (done by adding 'aronies' at the end of nearly every word and starting and ending every sentence with 'sure', also overusing the words 'lolage' and 'lolaronies') i love us.
.......................................................

Easter holidays are nearly finished and the mental preparation for the last term of school has begun, excitement and dread. I'm going to go and soak up some rays and whatnot now, my skin has missed the sun.

    1. thanks, man! <3 also, no need for an apology, english weather is pretty much the same as irish weather and if i had been in ireland i would've been getting pretty much the same thing, the weather is so much more tolerable in the english countrysides anyways.

  3. its so good you're feeling positive, I always find I lose track of time and can never tell how each month/holiday/term has actually gone. Also, the sense of life getting serious takes a while to catch up on you (its only just dawned on me lol). Your disposables are so cute as well. I feel like i need to run off to the countryside now....

  7. Every month feels the same to me, I guess I'm good at adjusting myself to the various conditions.

  8. OK, so it's halfway into April and I still feel like I'm trying to decide about March, you know? Probably because of the Easter break, I don't feel like April's HAPPENED. Congrats on your play. I bet it was really lovely and I wish you'd taken a video I could use up all my cellular data on. Your photos are magnificent and they're oddly similar to my backyard right now (we're experiencing a somber amount of winter rain right now).

    1. I so totally feel you! I can't keep track of the dates, in my head it's April 3rd or something, because I mean March just finished and April just happened and apparently in that space of time I was in an alternate universe or w/ever. Thanks, man! I've been bugging like everyone that video'd it to send it to me, but I guess if I want it done, I gotta do it myself *rolls eyes*. Thank you again Khensani!! ♥
