A few announcements

via Daily Prompt: Better

Sorry it’s been a while since I last wrote, the reasons I will explain later…

  1. I’m afraid ‘my american adventure’ won’t be continued- because of it’s dullness and pure laziness…
  2. I am officially on Goodreads, well, I’ve been on it for a while, but I am taking part in it more. By the way, I am under the name GirlWithTheGlasses.
  3. Looking back, my blogs have been a bit hickle-de-pickle-de so I’ve decided for a change, a perminant change. From now on I’m going to write about reading, as I am a lover that art, art in general (drawing, photography, painting…), and *deep breathes* boarding schools. Yep, I’m finally coming out. I go to a boarding school. That sort of gives you a greater sense of my age. I believe that students who are going to go to a boarding school should know more about it, as when I first started I had no idea of what was to come! Even if you don’t go to one, they are interesting!

How does this link to the daily prompt? Well- let’s just say folks- that from now on my blogs going to be a whole lot better!

Day1-My American Aventure

Now, let me get straight the story…

It was really annoying when I figured my motion sickness would influence my plane journey. Well, the first flight was calm, but after my New York stop-over my flight onwards was some sort of rollercoaster, I flew with Delta by the way, and even though their entertainment was FANTASTIC they kept on hitting ‘unexpected bad air’, so the consistantly happy voiced co-captain had said. He also had a long rant at the begin and the end of the flight about the amazing staff (who were rude), on board. This unexpected bad air cropt up every half an hour, this meant that he had to announce it every single time! So, as you can imagine, I didn’t get much sleep.

When we got there I was greeted by my aunt and uncle. I travelled in my aunt’s car (with my mum and brother), and half way there I announced that I was going to be sick. She swerved accross the empty (what do you call it? Motaway? Highway?), main road and threw up some…. stuff. Apparently, it was mere tiredness.

So that was my first day ,night really, in America. I’ll be back with more exciting post and pictures (hopefully), soon!

Girlwiththeglassses

Sooooooooo Excited!

Tomorrow I’m going to America! I am really excited as I will be seeing family (and not forgetting close friends of the family) who haven’t seen I what might be century. So, because I one of those people, I will be blogging about it through the form of uploading pictures. Luckily I’ve realised how messy my writing is, so I’m just going to draw.

Anyway, I neeeed to start packing. I know, I know- packing the day before? Are you crazing? Yep, I probably am and hey, none my family have packed either.

5am(ish) start and 2am(uk time) landing, I need all the luck I can smuggle. Plus, I am afraid of heights. Great.

Thanks for reading!🤓🦄

6 bookshelf ideas I’m loving❤

I know this blog sounds a little pointless, but the ideas I found were just to inspiring to not write about. So, I shall now begin…

1.

Staircase-Bookshelf

This book staircase is practical and just amazingly booky- something which I’m craving.

2.

bookshelf33

This idea is something most people are familiar with and it had to feature, because of it’s just sooo cool!

3.

creative-bookshelves-and-bookcases-23

Perfect! But, it’s a bit small…

4.

Flybrary space saving bookshelf

I quite like this design, it’s great for someone who likes a bit of new design.

5.

Don’t you just love two-in-one pieces of furniture?

Artwork and books? Now, that’s amazing!

Thanks for reading this rather odd post.

GirlWithTheGlasses2

Right…

I’m going to get my head down and work. I know, I said something similar at the beginning of the year, but now I AM going to do that. From now on I’m going to focus back on my writing, artistic abilities (not just doodling now!), and I’m hoing to read books that will help me progress.

Because I lack self-disapline I stopped my Lent thing and ate liquorice whilst flicking through YouTube in a lazy fashion.

Well, I’ll notify you on my so called ‘progression’.  780670de5f2bee4ab026e7b7ecc18295_a-goal-without-a-plan-is-just-goals-quotes_462-424

Dover Castle

 

First of all, I would like to say that Dover Castle is MASSIVE. I didn’t even go around the whole thing today, but I looked around enough to know it is a hard-core (if you enjoy that sort of thing I recommend going there), tourist attraction. (When I say hard-core I mean full of facts, artifacts and tunnels.) It’s not just an attraction for the keen tourists, it offers an immersing eexperience for the kids. With WW2 tunnels, a gift shop packed full of -blunt- wooden swords and the abilty to touch most things, this attraction is practically built for young explorers.

Moving swiftly on….

I started off my journey at the underground Hospital which was a pretty cool experience. The chatty tour guide said that the tunnel had been altered to sound, look and even smell like it would of done all those years ago (WW2). After lunch, I explored the operation dynamo, yet another cool tunnel.

The actual castle was very well kept for an ancient realm- just a few scraps and a small number of missing steps. It was surrounded by lovely grounds which seemed to be never ending. The rooms within the castle were furnished with what historians believe to be medival-like furniture. Overall, a very nice place.

Downfalls:

If your not a walker, then this is not your type of attraction, but I’m sure there’s something in the area that will suit you and your needs or disabilities.

Dystopian

Dystopian is my new favourite genre of book. I’m not sure why though- it could be that it’s closely related to fantasy, maybe it’s the amazingness of The Hunger Games and Incarceron. Who knows? Anyway, you should try a book or two out.

Catch-up

Once again I’m here to write about the thoughts that have crossed my mind in these past (what was it?), three weeks. Sorry about the wait, but here I am now…

I need to start art journalling, pronto! The creations I see on their blogs these days are pretty amazing. They layer, they stick, they paint and ,eventually, they receive an good outcome.

Here are some examples:

I’ve also been thinking about buying a tablet/ipad thing. Have you got any ideas on what to buy? Something under £100 please

Finally, I want scrap the ‘7 books to be read in half a year’, my new goal is 30 books read in one year. You can see it on my Good Reads account, GirlWithTheGlasses.

Thanks for reading,
