Is summer over? And update. 

Summers in  Ireland are very scarcely and when there is sun it usually lasts for only a couple of hours before clouds cover the sky again. Luckily, this summer we were able to experience the cool and warm weather of summer. Temperatures were quite high, around 20° and up. But nothing compared to our counterpart in London at 29°

However, I don’t really mind the heat. More often I usually visit my family across the world where temperatures are hotter and the climate more tropical. So you could say I am very used to hot weather. Unfortunately, this year I won’t be traveling across the world. With, uni just around the corner and summer intensive to attend it is very hectic, at the moment.


Here’s a photo of how beautiful summers can be here in Ireland.♡♡♡ 

As opposed to what everyday would look like. Very dull and dark, usually. But these days are great for hot chocolate beside a cosy fire. ♡♡

This year has been an amazing year for me. I started my own blog around this time last year and I graduated from school. I can’t wait to start a new chapter in my life and to bring you guys along with me. I don’t know what the future has in store for me but hopefully it is an interesting one filled with big bumps and unexpected moments!
Love Mayxxx

Fluid like water

 

Dear Readers,

What do you do when life presents to you a brick wall that prevents you from going further? This is the feeling I am feeling right now; in a stump, unable to get near or far from anything I have set myself to achieve. Along the way, I have somehow forgotten my goals and the fire I once have has nearly been extinguished but not entirely. Life really is life the fluidity of water but it’s up to you to go against the currents and pave your own path, at least that is what I have come to comprehend in my life. I spend so much time putting aside my goals to focus on other things that I almost forget about them in the long- run. I want you to know that life is only ever lived once- not that you don’t know, but just a friendly reminder that this is your only shot. 😉 Ask questions later, who know what life will bring!

A question to ask yourself.

As always, see you in my next post. xxx

 You need a little challenge to keep you going.

Good evening everybody! So, lately I haven’t been posting very much than I would like to. My life is currently a whirlwind of school, exams, study and a long awaited mid-term breaks. So you can probably imagine how crazy my life is. In about a weeks time I will taking mock exams which will prepare me for the real thing in May and June. I’m slightly nervous and anxious and doing everything I can to remember all the material out of my seven subjects
Lately, I have felt very down. I found myself complaining from which wasn’t what I normally do. Sure I complain from time to time but this time it was extremely consistent.I realized what I was doing and thought about it for a moment and calmed myself down.
Then, I went to class like usual.

On that particular day I had a class with a teacher who knew we were under a lot pressure and she has taught something I will neve forget.

“challenge yourself against the negative thoughts. And this shall pass.”

When you read this I will still be probably doing my exams. And there will certainly be more consistent updates from now on. So, here a little thing I learnt today and maybe it might of taught you something.

All the best. And have a nice day!

First Day of Ballet class

Hello everyone! You might notice from the title my blog and my other topics for other posts are very random.Most of the time I post things that really  I’m very sorry if you are a writer, traveler etc or anyone who is categorized in a certain topic and you are following my blog strictly for the purpose of updates for travel and writing posts only. That is not to say that I am not going to have many future updates in these categories and I assure you they will more coming once I get my creative juices flowing and when school doesn’t kill me. *face plant on the table* Also I would like to say, thank you to new followers. I feel so happy that people are reading what I write and I don’t know how to thank you for it. All I can say is a million thanks and more to those amazing people!

So, without further ado let me begin the big rant about my life/journal blog.

 

Since I was very young maybe about 11 or 12 I was introduced to the world of ballet and I became hyped about it.In those years of my life, my mom was very busy with work and most of the time did not have much time let alone enough energy to look after me. She worked very hard very day.At that time we could not afford to let me attend any ballet classes. My mom was also very old-school and believed that doing anything like ballet would not give me a bright future ahead.

Looking back I can honestly see how inconvenient ballet would have been, and I also understand why parents are so adamant to encourage their children to find a job that would provide them enough. More often than not parents are very worried about their children and their future. Most parents like to think about the worst case scenarios in their child’s life. For example, for my mom, it would have been going homeless.

Now I’m 16 years old and time has changed a lot of things in our lives. My mom doesn’t have to work that hard anymore and endure rigorous amounts of late nights working. Time has also brought back a lost love I had when I was younger and this was Ballet. I think it really started with Instagram and seeing all the beautiful dancers with their pointe shoes and perfect poses. Then I really came to realize how much I loved it and since maybe a year or two years ago my passion has resurfaced.

Countless times I have asked my mom about attending classes, but again the answer was a quick “no.” Yet I was very adamant. Then during last year towards the end of summer, I had the opportunity to work in a local restaurant at 16 and I was very glad for the experience but unfortunately, my time there did not last very long because within three months it closed down. Since I worked I was also paid meaning I could do what I wanted with it. But I choose not to and decided to save it for a rainy day, and this brought me to the ballet classes which I am paying myself! These classes are fortunately for teens and not adults. I think I felt quite relieved for that because  I think I would feel so misplaced in a room full of grown-ups!

So before  I was told about the teen ballet classes,  I have emailed a local ballet teacher in my area,unfortunately, she did not offer me the classes I wanted. However, she did suggest to me about a “teen ballet class” starting just a little in a few days. Later I found out my current ballet teacher was one of the students of the ballet teacher that I had emailed in the first place!

So, let me tell you about my experience. Sorry, it was so long! If you read this far, I admire your patience!

So, it was a Friday evening and I was sitting in the car with my mom and driving towards the place. I was very nervous at first and arrived very early to class. My teacher was really nice but also can be quite strict if she wanted to be.So I was left with an intimidating-ish teacher while she asked me questions about my hobbies etc. Thankfully, within a few minutes, other girls and boys arrived and we started our very first class. It was such an amazing experience, probably better than I had expected it to be.I did feel quite insecure though because I was the oldest in the class while other people were 12-14 years old. But since I am quite petite-(5’2 1/2 and maybe a few more cm)I felt alright because some of the others were taller than me.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I could drag this on but I don’t think anyone would have the patience to read about my life story.

Thank YOU to those who did though, and if you are one of those ballet enthusiast I encourage you to just give ballet a try, even if it’s just one class. If my story isn’t inspiring Misty Copeland is a perfect inspiration for you! Here’s a little hope for you!

Happy Days

Today,or more like a few days ago was one of the sunniest day in Ireland. If you have never lived in Ireland before than you surely won’t know about the unpredictable weather we have here. Considering the fact that we live in the west of Europe,close to the Atlantic ocean it is no surprise this tiny island experiences heavy and long rainfall that will last almost forever. This is due to the south-westerly winds that blow moisture from the oceans and seas towards our small country However in the most unlikeliest of days, these past few days have been really beautiful and warm. I have celebrated this turn of moment with a nice walk with my sister in a local park where I live.

I have debated whether to post or not as I didn’t have my phone with me out during this walk and so I wasn’t able to take any aesthetic pictures. Luckily, courtesy of my sister,she had reluctantly allowed me to use one of her picture she had taken. (The one above if you want to know) And yes, that’s me! So, as you can probably tell the walk was a good one from the beautiful nature surrounding the place. The picture above was one I took in another time when I was there.

Today is another stunning day spent in- not my hometown but in the city. Hopefully, there will be more blogs to come in the future.

Goood day
