I told you I’d let you know how my birthday night went in my previous post ‘Birthday Blues’. Well the good news is; I really enjoyed it!
I won’t deny it was very busy day. But what can I say? I won’t forget it, and don’t regret a single second of it ( or maybe my hair :/). unfortunately not everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did but some things are just meant to be left in the past; when I look back at that night I want to remember the intensely drunk teen who had us all in fits of laughter, the rich chocolate cake *dribbles* and of course being surrounded by most of my most favourite people.
I can’t begin to describe how thankful I am for my friends, all of them. And of course my beautiful family. If you weren’t there – shame. But honestly, nights like that stay gold forever.
Zizzi’s did a FANTASTIC job with the service, if you’re anywhere near Loughton, Essex I very much urge you to visit this Italian Ristorante. I loved the food, though my Pizza went cold quick. Cakes & Shakes topped off the night with a cute 50’s style diner hang out spot and a Crunchie Bar to wish me a happy birthday :3.
Thankyou to everyone. Can’t thank you enough. You make ageing bearable
“You see, The Dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun; and The Realists without the dreamers – they might not ever get off the ground”
Just a beautiful quote from todays episode of Modern Family (L). In this world there will be people who are completely bent on ‘routine’ and don’t know how to follow their heart. Then there are those who follow their heart so much it leads them to destruction. A healthy mix brings joy and prosperity and this comes in Christ.
Follow your heart but use your mind cos that’s where your sense is. Emotions are decieving and unstable. Don’t lean upon your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6) have faith in God.
We’ve all been there. The thing with high school is, it never changes. Time can fly by, fashions will come in and out but no matter your race or gender, as long as you’re a teenager, rest assured the jungle we call ‘school’ will chew you up and spit you out.
Now, I don’t mean to discourage those of you who havent reached that yet but wise words; you will have your ups and down (extreme suicidal moments, heart breaks and moments of pure insanity and hysterics of laughter) but you’ll never forget it. In fact, your experience in school has the capacity to shape your future, who you are and who you become. unfortunately our teenage years are the ones where we discover who we are, make stupid choices, see the world for what it really is and discover who our real friends are. Today I witnessed something that upset me and thank God (literally) that I know who I am.
People *cough* Girls *cough* will, bitch and just be plain nasty and for no absolute reason. I do believe it’s in our nature as women but that’s no excuse to carry on doing it anyway. Boys will be boys ( rough ‘n’ tumble) and of course will always be there to break our hearts carelessly.
God has kept you till now, he’ll keep you till tomorrow (if he wills). He has plans for your life, even if it doesnt seem so. Forget those popular kids that give everyone evils in the cafeteria. Forget the boy that used those three words with his lips but not his heart. Forget those friends that lied to you. But remember it wont last forever. But then again Bowling For Soup said ‘High School Never Ends’…here we go again.
Enjoy it while it lasts. Dont rush into things. Dont get involved in the Gossip (trudat!) and Be true to yourself. Its okay, to be who you are. If they really like you they wont care what your like.
High school can’t be described. it just has to be experienced. Those are, and will always be The Best Days Of Your Life. xoxo Evie
Its 2am and I’m up reading The Bible. I havent posted anything in ages, but its okay, It’s not like I owe anyone anything. I’m not one of those people who just has to post everyday or else!
But I’ll tell you what – I went to Church Camp last week and celebrated The Festival of Shelters ( When Israel were in the wildernes…You basically give thanks to God). All in all it was awesome! I KNOW it’s not cool to think so or blog about it bu thats Indie. Aside the worship, sermons and food the atmosphere was electric. One of the parts I’ll never forget was laying on our balcony looking at the stars, they were almost close enough to touch, so sparkly. And they didn’t try to outdo each other either, they just lay there in their glory waiting to take someone breath away but how much Greater the One who made them?!
It was a wonderful experience. those of you who know Indie know I was enticed by Autumn Chill and her colours, the night sky took my breath away and the Tennessee style ranch with a lake behind it was just the icing on the cake! I wish I had pictures but, they’re in my head. I loved it. I’ve always wanted to stare into the night sky ( being me I couldnt resist but do a small Titanic scene! The one where he’s in the water and she says I’ll never let go then lets go).Reach for the stars guys, even if its cold, They’re not that far away!
