Hey bloggers, So as some of you may know this blog is about my random thoughts,experiences etc and recently I have been thinking about the term “Friends Forever” and the validity of that saying. Are friends really forever ? I’m not quite sure anymore. One simple question . . Are you as close as you were with your bestest best friend from primary school ?. I know I’m not , in fact I’m not as close with my friends from comprehensive school.
The term Best Friend is a term which I never use. I despise it! Why call a friend (Or a number of friends) you’re best friend ?. Do you have worst friends ? If they’re in the worst category surely that means they are not a friend at all. Sure I have close friends in which I speak to on a daily basis and we swap our problems but I wouldn’t call her a best friend. Why should I label my friends into categories ? I just don’t like it but I think this is just a matter of opinion.
So what has brought this question to my mind ? I know most of us aren’t best friends with our primary school friends. LIFE , most people think of life and think “I want to get married and have a family” and rightly so they think that most us of do, don’t we ?. The teen years are the years where you mostly hang around your friends and go out etc until you find your boyfriend/girlfriend and that is where my question comes in. In the past as many of you, if not all have experienced have had friends who started getting in a relationship and you just see less and less of them as time goes by. Understandably if they love each other they wish to spend as much time together as possible and that’s where some friendships end. A Number of years ago I had this friend who got a girlfriend and he literally just vanished off the face of the world. They broke up every couple of months for just 3 or 4 days and during those days I had my friend back but it did get quite tiring. The constant fights and at the end of the day the friendship was one-sided. I was there for him but when I needed someone where was he ?. Anyway as time went on one night he asked me to go out for a drink (this time however they were NOT on a break) so I asked him,as I was already quite annoyed with him for basically forgetting about me apart when it suited him. Are you not out with your girlfriend tonight ? and his answer was just No,Why do you think I’m asking you ? …. Errm.. Sorry what ? That did it for me! I got so annoyed,obviously I didn’t go out that night nor was I there for him when they kept breaking up. Did I do the right thing ? Shouldn’t we be there for our friends no matter what ? ….But shouldn’t they think that question themselves ? I always say it takes 2!… As years have gone by more and more friends have obviously gotten in a routine with their partners and obviously have no time for there used to be “best friend”.
Recently my closest friend whom I speak to daily and go on holidays together, we basically get along like a married couple but in a friendship. Before you think to yourselves “Do you like her”? …NO! lol Well I do like her but as a sister,we are that close.Well this friend has recently started seeing someone and I’m just thinking the plans we had on going to travel here and there…Are they still going to happen? We literally were saying ” we are single and we make the most of it live life etc” however now that she’s seeing someone this all may change. Let me just add that I approved the guy she is seeing and I told her that he is literally the male version of her, so nice and innocent and to be honest she does deserve a nice guy like him to treat her well!. Now I’m in like a paralysed thought of Am I going to lose her ? , Are things going to change ? Am I being selfish for thinking this ? and this is why the whole term of “Friends
Forever“ crossed my mind and made me question it.
Do we all not eventually move away from our friends and into relationships ? At a young age this is the goal for most people as it is what society imprints on us. So are friends really forever? My answer is pure and simple. No. You may continue to chat here and there but things change,situations change and you won’t be as close as you once were and just because of that fact I also find it hard to trust my friends. Not only do I live in a small town where everyone knows everyone and everybody’s business but if friends move on can you still trust that you’re deepest secrets and thoughts will not be shared? I just think Hmm..Only person I can trust is myself really as the saying from the T.V series Pretty Little Liars goes ” Only 2 can keep a secret if 1 of them is dead” . Drastic but in my opinion true.
Well I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this topic and maybe it will help me better myself. Please Like,Comment and Share 🙂
Have a nice day 😉 XxX
Hey bloggers! So most of you will have seen those funny pictures on Facebook which everyone seems to like..Literally!. Well I came across this one just now and it suits todays topic perfectly.
I have been sitting here hungry for a while now and all I can think about is “What can I eat? salad,fruits ? Nope,not me I was thinking Kebab or a burger”. Usually when I think that I say to myself “It’s okay I’ll go to the gym tomorrow” but when tomorrow comes I never seem to go and this has been going on for a couple of weeks now but seeing as the weather has been a little crap I have been using that as an excuse not to bother going. My most common excuses after the weather are “Going to have a haircut” or my favourite “Need to go to the shop after work” even thou I’ll only spend 5 mins in that shop and I know I can easily make it to the gym after that.
Summer is round the corner which means the pressure is on to get into shape. A couple of friends of mine are actually doing the Insanity Body Work-Out which is a high intense work out DVD and it’s actually adding to the pressure!! AHHHHH WHAT TO DOO!!! Well I will write it here in writing for all to see that I will be going to the gym this coming week (Week commencing Monday 11th March 2013)…But for now I am going to heat up a very nice oven pizza and enjoy every last calorie!!
Hope you enjoyed this little rant of mine 🙂 Like ,Share & Comment ! Are any of you doing any work-outs or diets? Leave a comment below maybe it can inspire me to do more 😀
Hey Bloggers I don’t think I have mentioned this before!! …Actually can’t believe I haven’t mentioned this before!! But…I am a big animal lover <3!. I Myself have a little dog called “Chico” (It’s a Spanish slang word used to describe something small). Chico is a West Highland Terrier (Also known as a Westie). I was never meant to get a westie I was meant to adopt a dog from someone who could not take care of her puppies however her daughter got too attached to the dog and decided to drop out last minute. I was devastated, I really set my hopes high and made plans for the new addition to the family. My sister then went to a shop and bought a small westie which was probably the best outcome ever. I suffer from asthma and apparently terriers don’t shed fur and their fur are “human Like” so they don’t affect my allergies or asthma!. I remember the first night he spent in my house (6 years ago now) he slept down stairs and in the morning we couldn’t find him ANYWHERE! Poor Chico had spent the night sleeping under the sofa. I could speak about my dog FOREVER -really is a mans best friend :). Here is a little picture of Chico…
Why introduce my dog to you now you ask ? ….Well…..I saw this article online about dogs and their owners having a #cheeky nap together after they had been practising and taking part in a dog show!. I love when me and my dog fall asleep on the sofa or bed! Have a look at the dogs HERE!..

Morning bloggers!!… Happy Valentine’s day!! Wonderful day ….for those in love that is. A day where everyone in a relationship is basically forced to show their love buy buying presents and cards. Why wait for a specific day to show your love for someone reminds me of Mothers day. I love my mum everyday why should I wait for a specific day to show it so a couple of years ago I gave her presents and a video that I made weeks before Mothers Day! Don’t wait to show your love ;)…
So let me put a positive spin for us single people on this lovely day… Single on Valentines? NO PROBLEM it’s actually better for us. We save money on buying presents but not only that we can buy ourselves a present!. Perfect excuse to spend some money on whatever we want but we usually don’t want to get… Although I must say try and avoid social networks, especially Facebook! – I’m more of a twitter person myself but it will be Love everywhere. So enjoy this day you single people 😉
Hi bloggers so a mini blog post today called “It’s The Thought That Not Longer Counts”. What does that mean ? Let me explain what I mean by it.
In the past have you ever heard before your birthday or Christmas “It’s the thought that counts”?. Yes, I have plenty of times. Coming from a family that struggled to get by in the early years we learned to love every present we got. Be it a pair of socks to a new console game. We appreciated everything we got and had and never asked for expensive gifts as we knew that would just add the stress to my mother.Now that I work I obviously buy the presents for everyone and I found it very stressful because in today’s society the thought no longer counts. Materials count, I found an old Yo-Yo the other day clearing out my cupboards and I thought to myself “I wonder if kids nowadays will know what these are”. Buying gifts for little kids or friends my own age has proven to be a challenge,although finding the perfect gift for them maybe the value of the gift was just £10 so I found myself having to buy something else….Which then meant I had to buy something else for others as I couldn’t possibly give one gift to one person yet another receive two or more presents.
Some of you may know I had a minor operation ( I wrote about it in an earlier blog post) so my gift shopping was held up and I know find myself in a situation where I have bought some people more than others and I started to think ” Well who cares, They all have a gift and that is what matters right? Isn’t it the thought that counts”…. I found myself laughing to myself after thinking that because everyone now asks for iPhone’s,iPads and gifts which are worth more than £100. The thought no longer counts but the quantity and quality of gifts. I’m going to sound older than what I am ( and I’m only 21) but kids today do not appreciate things at all.
Try to restore this in your kids & If you already do so… You’re one of the rare good parents and instill good morals in your kids Xxx
Let me just say Congrats for surviving this “doomsday”. Glad to see that we all live another day to tell the tale and we can carry on with our lives. Wonder how the extremists are feeling at this moment in time. Annoyed because their belief of the end was wrong or relieved because they are still alive, mixed emotions I suppose. As I mentioned in my previous post I do believe that something huge is going to happen in the world, maybe not today or tomorrow but someday something will change life as we know it. Could it be another World War? or natural disasters we won’t know until that day is here.
Relieved that the 21st December 2012 is over and we survived ? Oh I wouldn’t be because, Yes we didn’t die but nothing has changed and it still is a world where only the fittest will survive. I don’t mean toned abs and bulging biceps but mentally devious and backstabbing. As in this day and age our best friends could just be a simple disguise of our worst enemy. I warn you bloggers and readers trust few but befriend many. Devious plan right? Well after all we all want to survive this cruel world and there’s a lot of people who are set in destroying others and their happiness. I’m a true believer of Karma the way I think of it is “What goes up must come down…eventually and when it does the force of gravity will hit you 10 times worse”. I beg you not to do anything with ill intentions but simply befriend your enemies and love them like any other. Not only are you annoying them even more which may lead them do worse things behind your back but you’re also giving our good friend karma more to add to the delivery package when it returns to sender :).
Now enough of the planning all in all it really is Survival Of The Fittest in more ways than one and you all want to make sure you can run just a bit just in case of a disaster ;).
Sorry if this post is a bit too erm… dark ? but after all I have to post about what I’m truly feeling and hopefully it helps you too.
