Money vs Happiness

Thursday, November 10, 2016

We live in a world where ultimately we are told that in order to live a good life we need to do well in education and work hard for our entire lives to get money, and to some extent this can be perceived as true. But is it completely true? Well of course it isn't for people who are born into money because they can live a leisurely life knowing they don't need to work for money - they already have it. This is not what I'm getting at though and this post is in many ways an extension onto a previous post where I talked about how money and material possessions really aren't a compulsory ingredient to happiness.


Another Holiday, GCSE Results and First Month of College

"I'll be back next Thursday" - Me, July 21st 2016
Good morning, afternoon, night or whenever you're reading this wherever you are. Welcome to "next Thursday", or at least a Thursday. Actually, it's Saturday. Nevermind. The point I'm trying to make is that in my last post I lied again about coming back to regular blogging on a weekly basis, and it's actually been three months since my last post. So without further ado, here's a short post about what I've been up to...


I went on holiday and changed college!

Thursday, July 21, 2016

Greetings and salutations, readers. I'd like to begin by apologising for saying that I would be posting every Thursday following my previous post whilst failing to mention that I was going on holiday for two weeks which meant that I was unable to post. What's my excuse? I'm sure you can tell by the post title, but read on to find out more!


I'm Back!

Saturday, June 18, 2016

I have returned (finally), and with me I bear news of many things. Without further ado, let's get started!
So, where have I been? The main reason I haven't been active in the past couple of months is that I've been busy both revising for and doing my GCSE exams at school. For any of my overseas readers who aren't familiar with GCSEs, GCSE stands for General Certificate of Secondary Education. The result of these exams are the outcome of my 12 years of compulsory education and for some people who aren't going to college, they will be the results that get them through the rest of their professional lives. I however will be attending college and I will be attending the taster day in a couple of weeks, so be sure to check back then for some information about what will be my first day at college! How did my exams go though? Read on for more on that...


My Aspirations

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Being in the final year of compulsory education, a lot of pressure is put on myself and my peers regarding our future career ambitions and really deciding what we want to do with our lives. With that being said, I'd like to share the outcome of these thoughts with you and let you know exactly what my goals are in life and where I want to be in, for example, 10 years. So let's work chronologically with this, starting with my current situation.
