I have been so busy but hopefully I will be able to get back into doing regular blog posts now and thought I’d start it off with a little update post.
I had my A-level exams which were literally taking up ALL of my time as I was cramming in facts, reading through textbooks, making revision cards etc. Hopefully all the hard work paid off but I have to wait another week to get the results which I am really nervous about as they decide where I am going to university next month. Since exams I’ve basically just been relaxing, enjoying the fact that I don’t have tons of work to do! Instead I’ve been meeting up with my friends and seeing my boyfriend and it’s just been great. I went to America, storming through the Disney parks as well as Seaworld where I got to feed dolphins which is just amazing, and then Universal Studios. The new Harry Potter part of Universal Studios is absolutely amazing! We went to ‘Escape from Gringotts’ first thing in the morning which meant getting on after an hour while the queue was four hours long when we got off of it! The ride was a total favourite of mine but sadly due to the queues I only got to ride it once.
I also went away for a few days with my boyfriend and his family doing lots of swimming, biking, badminton and other sporty things which was really nice. During July I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo, completing a 10,000 word count despite not finishing the story so hopefully I will be able to keep working on that because I just think it is really fun to do little creative projects like that. This time my novel is a fantasy following a girl who lives on a dying planet upon which a war rages between magic and science. I don’t really like my writing, I know how I want it to sound but I can never seem to get it how I want it to be which is why nobody has ever read anything I’ve written for NaNo. The point for me though is that it’s fun and I like having projects like that to focus on.
Anyway, I think that is it for my updates so I’ll catch you in a couple days with a new post. See you then!
