Hey guys, I'm sorry I have been a bit absent I've been taking a bit of technology break they tend to help me when I'm not feeling totally myself. I had a Papworth pre transplant clinic last friday and it's not that it went badly or anything that interesting actually happened it just annoyed me and made me mad, that's all I'm really going to say about it I may explain it in the future when I'm not so irrationally annoyed about it or so mad about it but for right now I think it's best if I just wallow and stew by myself with my thoughts.
Because of said wallowing and stewing I always retreat to my bat-cave aka my bedroom and rely on the good old faithful Netflix and therefore wanted to share what I have been watching with you guys.
Firstly we have "That 70's show." 70's is a show that I never really discovered until my teens so probably about 2003 and it was a show that I just watched on the off chance that it was on and never really watched all the seasons but it was still something I really enjoyed. Back in the day I remember it being on a channel called "Trouble" which sadly no longer exists but I think it was specifically aimed at my age group back then. I have really enjoyed watching all the seasons, there are 8, it is set in the 70's and I think there are a few things they probably wouldn't get away nowadays as we are very PC but because of the period it is set in I think they probably get away with it. It's based around a group of 6 teenagers who are in school about 17 years old and their lives in Eric's basement which is basically their hangout area and where they get stoned pretty much every episode. Relationships happen between the characters and it's just what I would call a typical teenage programme going through the lives of teenagers just a bit more dramatised and set in a different decade. I also love the fact that this is when Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis met and first worked together and now they are married and have a kid 17 years later (Awww).
Then we have "Once Upon a Time." I think I have mentioned OUAT a few times over the years but I still love it and am absolutely chuffed that it is now on Netflix so I don't have to stream it now. If you love fairytales with a twist or disney stories with a twist this is something you will love. We're onto the 4th series now but when it started it was case of all the characters from your favourite fairytales had, had a curse placed on them bringing them to our world trapped in a town where time did not move and they didn't know who they really were, they were given false lives and wouldn't know any differently until "The saviour" aka Emma turns up on the scene. It's really good and there are points through the seasons where you have to stick with it a bit but I always enjoy it, it's a bit of escapism and takes you away from the real world for a bit.
I'm always looking for new things to watch is there anything you would recommend?
1. Be more adventurous while you can.
Don't be afraid to do things because they're scary things really aren't as scary as you think they are.
2. Care less about what people think.
People generally don't care what you look like and really probably aren't thinking you're fat because fyi you definitely aren't, you'll find out what fat really is in a few years. People will catch up with you and grow into themselves too, you are a normal size I promise!
3. Enjoy the outside more.
It may seem really annoying to go on a walk or go out to the park with the sisters now but just think in a few years you won't even be able to walk up the road so enjoy it whilst you can!
4. Apply yourself more.
You are actually really smart and if you had only applied yourself a bit more rather than playing on "the Sims" or chatting with your friends on MSN you probably could have done a bit better in school, especially Spanish the grade we dare not speak of.
5. When you're trying to decide whether to go to 6th form or college CHOOSE 6th form.
College was a disaster, you need someone pressuring you with homework deadlines not this airy fairy we don't care if you do your homework or not crap, that is just not how you work...
6. ...If you still decided on college don't spend your money on copious amounts of snickers and skittles you hated your appearance and where you were and they definitely were not helping you, you could have saved all that money and probably gone on holiday with it.
7. Talk to people more.
You shut people out because you feel like they won't have a clue what you're going through but how could they if you don't talk. People still won't totally understand because they obviously can never completely "get it" but at least they'll be able to help and talk you through it more
8. Grow your hair into a side fringe much sooner than 16.
Your future self will thank you for it.
9. Discover dresses sooner!
Jeans really are not your friend, I know you hate your legs but honestly those black jeans that you basically lived in from 15 to 19 were not your friends they were not good. Yes they were comfortable but really not flattering. Dresses suit you much better I promise and there are always tights for your legs, you will own a lot of black tights in the future.
10. Be more confident.
You only really start discovering yourself at 19, you are a nice person people don't hate you and aren't judging you and if they are they aren't people you want to be with anyway.
