Bucket list update!

So even though my life has recently somehow become unsociable and rather uneventful, I’ve managed to tick off quite a few things from my bucket list!

I’ve read a really interesting book on psychology.
On my birthday, I wore red lipstick for the party.

I’m really getting into bring me the horizon music, too. ‘Can you feel my heart’ is definitely my favourite. I got a library card, too! This allowed me to take out the psycology book, aha!

However, I still have a lot to complete and not much time before I start college. I’m still to try a cosmopolitan – I think this is because it’s in the movies a lot. I will find out tomorrow if I have got the grades to get into college (VERY nervous!) I’m going to write letters to everyone I’m close to as soon as I finish writing this blog. I still want to sleep under the stars but I think if I moved that to the ‘before I die’ bucket list it will be easily completed. I was stupid to think I’d lose a stone in the summer ahah. I don’t think I’ll be ticking that off. I’m halfway through a Harry potter marathon. Not doing to bad I think!

Appreciation for Parents.

At this age, you think you know it all.
But we don’t.

we wouldn’t be anything without our mum’s and dads.

we wouldn’t have clean clothes, a nice, cooked dinner on the table. We wouldn’t have the money to pay for things such as the broadband so many of us can’t imagine life without.

We wouldn’t have ANYTHING, and we certainly don’t show them the appreciation they deserve.

Parents are the ones who, first and foremost, gave us the greatest gift of all; the gift of LIFE. without them, I wouldn’t be here writing this, and you wouldn’t be there reading it. After that they go on to feed us, clothe us, teach us to talk, to walk, to run. They are the ones who kiss that poorly knee better once you’ve fallen of the bike Dad taught you to ride and Mum saved up to buy for you. Parents enrol us into school to give us a good, qualitative education and they teach us wrong from right.

They are the ones we go to for advice, the ones that make christmas happen (That doesn’t just happen, You know. Parents literally put blood, sweat and a lot of money into making christmas what it is.), that buy our birthday cakes and presents, they shed that proud tear when you say that one line you have in the school play you’ve been practicing for months.

They had a life once before they brought us into the world. They could go out when they pleased to see friends or go to see a film or to drink, yet they gave most of it up so that they could care for you and let you live the life they substituted for you.

They save and they work to earn the money that makes your world go round.

Yet we take that for granted.

‘My mum’s a bitch.’ When she won’t let you go to see the new band you like without an adult, because you’re not old enough to look after yourself, even if you think you are, the minute that big strong man see’s you and picks you up, you have no chance.

She isn’t doing it to be a bitch, she’s doing it to protect you.

I’ve done it, I still do. I take my parents for granted every single day. Those little things they spend time doing,  that make the difference.

‘Dad’s a douche’ because he wont give YOU the ten pounds that YOU want to spend on a new top. That ten pounds HE worked for. HE spent time earning?

What gives you the right to take that away from him?

I’m not saying the kids of this generation are bad kids, I’m saying sometimes we all forget how much our parents worked for us, fought for us, bought for us, gave up for us.

They made their own lives harder, so ours could be great.

Say Thank you to them.
