Dear pillow, sorry for all the tears...

Hey Blogger-ers?!?!


Well how are we all?  How was your weekend? Do anything special? Literally all I did was coursework. I swear that's all i do atm! But I mean 3 weeks till the Easter Holidays then a 2 week break, fab! A long break is seriously what i need! I just get run down and out of energy so quickly at the moment that I just can't do anything right! But yesterday however, I must have had a decent night sleep on Friday because i woke up with so much energy! I was wide awake at 8am! YES... 8 in the morning on a weekend! I was too wide awake to stay in bed so I went downstairs and made myself a coffee (like I needed that extra caffeine anyways?!) I then went back to bed and wrote my post about my Netflix favourites! I hadn't even intended to make the post that long! Anyway so then 2 hours later still in ma onesie, I had a sudden urge to completely clean my room! Re-arranged everything, opened my window to let fresh air in, hovered and in the end it looked clean as could be!


Is it me or can you guys get a lot more jobs done when you're in ya PJ's or onesie?! I dunno what it is, but I just feel like I get so much more done when I'm in them! I suppose its the cosy-ness? That's not even a word, or is it? Have I just spelt it wrong? Aha! I don't even know, and you know what I don't care, I'm just way too tired and the thought of school tomorrow makes me more tired!


School. Well where to begin? I don't even know if ive told you but I'm in sixth form now! I mean, i may not look it but I'm in Year 12! So much different to GCSE, for starters you get treated so much better, it's like the teachers think you're a changed person but in reality I'm not. I'm just the same person as i was a year ago! Still an emotional wreck too!


Had one of those emotional days the other week. Do you have those days where you just feel down for no reason?! I don't know what triggers it, or what affects me but i just know from as soon as i wake up, I'm gunna be grumpy, sad, and just not sociable. I hate it, especially when i just break down in tears. I want to have a reason to cry, but there shouldn't have to be a reason to cry should there. You can cry when you, where ever you want and no one should judge you for that. Whenever you want to cry, don't stop yourself, if you're at home, go upstairs, curl into your bed and just let them tears run away. you shouldn't have to hide them, its nothing to be ashamed off. If someone asks you whats wrong, just say "I don't know",  they're not going to make judgement, they want to help, cheer you up. Honestly, i don't know what I'd do without my friend G, I just message her when I'm sad, and shes always on the other side of the phone to chat.

Wow, getting emotional writing this, I think part of it is that last year was such a hard time in my life. So many changes, events and emotional roller coasters happened. It didn't help, that i had my exams around the same time, that time i needed to be strong! Since the start of that year things went from bad to worse, from my relatives being in hospital and being very ill, to being bullied at school by two people who were once very close to me. It didn't help that the stress contributed to all of this and that every night id just come home and cry myself to sleep.
I have to say, I never want that to  happen to me again, and for ever who is experiencing that now, we all need to be there to support them and to be a shoulder to cry on. Or maybe you're the one who's going through this rough time, if so tell someone how you're feeling, have some time to yourself, and get plenty of sleep. I promise you it'll get better and if you ever need someone to chat to, I'm always an email away:)

So..umm, yeah, a sad topic to talk about, but i feel people need to know they aren't alone and that theres loads of support out there for them! Any questions are welcome and thank you for reading this my lovelys:)x

Netflix Favourites..

Hey you weekend readers..?!


You may be painting your nails or getting your hail done while reading this, getting ready to go out for a Saturday Night. But if not grab a cuppa, or a chocolate bar, I bet you have a secret stash somewhere, don't you


In these next couple of posts I thought I'd share with you two of my favourite Netflix Series. I personally don't have Netflix, but begging the parents to get it! Whenever my close friend Georgia (http://whiteshirtchic.blogspot.co.uk/) comes round, or I go to her always, without question we are straight on Netflix! Don't know what we'll do if the internet goes!! These two Netflix Series which I'm about to share with you are mine and G's frequent and most favourite views. 


The first one Bates Motel is a series we started together back before New Year. We finished the first series, and they have recently announced that Season 2 is on Netflix right now! I can't wait to start watching it, the sooner the better!



Norman and Norma
So in Season 1, on the very first episode, we are introduced to a family, Norman and Mrs Norma Bates. - This isn't your regular family - After Norma's husband being killed in their own house, they decide to buy a Motel to have a fresh start. Even though the place is run down, Norma is determined to make a go of it, at the same time Norman makes a good impression on some of the girls at school. 
On one of the first nights of the two owning the motel, Norman sneaks out to see one of the girls as his mum isn't keen on them being around him. While Norma is home alone things end badly when the former owner, Keith breaks in and rapes her. Norman comes home and sees that things aren't right,and knocks the attacker out. Norma then kills the attacker in great rage by stabbing him several times. As soon as they realise what has just  happened they decide to leave the body in one of the rooms over night before disposing it in the lake the next day.  
Emma
Once they've disposed of the body, they decided to redecorated all the motel rooms. As Norman is ripping up a carpet he discovers a sketchbook which has drawings of young girls. Norman shows his close friend, Emma the sketchbook, questioning if its actually real. However when the town sheriff and his deputy notice that the man has gone missing they start questioning the family.
Dylan
Dylan, Norma's older son arrives in to town which causes arguments between the family. Dylan then starts his new job, watching marijuana plants while Norma starts to get closer to Deputy Shelby, so she can take the evidence of which was a belt of the former owner.  Norman sneaks into Shelbys house to retrieve the evidence, but on the way he finds a girl in the basement. Luckily Dylan followed in and created a diversion, so Norman could get out. He tells his mum about the girl, but she doesn't believe it and tells Norman he sometime sees things that aren't actually there. 
Deputy Shelby
When she later stays over at Shelbys house, she decides to check the basement out but the girl has gone. Later on the police find Keiths body and arrests Norma, who then gets bailed out by his son who she then makes feel guilty as he wasn't there at the time of the arrest. Dylan however proves to be supportive and decides to move out, which he then later offers Norman the chance to move in with him.  
The family finds the Asian girl, and keeps her in one of the Motel rooms. Emma wants to call the FBI, about the Asian sex ring, but Norma stops her as she wants to get the evidence first. When Shelby stops by the motel, he finds the girl and takes after her when she runs into the woods. When he returns, the only thing on his mind is to kill the Bates family. However, in all the confusion, Dylan gets shot, but it's Shelby that gets killed. 
Several days later, even though the motel isn't quite open, Norma gets her first guest, Jake who claims to have been a regular when Keith owned the place. He asks Norma that he rents the whole place out, he pays in cash in advanced and he requires complete privacy, he assures her that nothing illegal is happening. Norman has troubles at school, and is recommended that he seeks professional help, although when he does visit a psychologist, it doesn't go well. 
A following night, as Norma is suspicious of Jake,  she decides to follow him to see what he's up to. She finds he's looking for something of Keiths boat, so later on she advices him to leave the motel but he isn't happy about that. Later on in the week, while going into her room, to her shock she finds Shelbys  dead body laying on her bed where she is certain it's Jake. Norma regrets buying the Motel and wants to move again but Norman makes it clear that's the last thing he wants. Then when she returns to the motel, she is not happy to see Dylans crew smoking marijuana outside their rooms. 
Sheriff
Meanwhile Norman's teacher, Miss Watson wants to get one of his stories published but Norman disagrees about the idea. One night, Jake expects to meet up with Norma, however she turns to the Sheriff for help. He assures her he'll sort it out, but not quite assured, Norma asks Dylan to get her a gun and teach her how to use it. 
Later on in the week, during school, Norman overhears his teacher having an argument over the phone. She is clearly upset and Norman promises not to tell anyone, but her attraction to Norman becomes stronger. 
Norman asks Emma to go to the winter dance but it doesn't go well after he keeps staring at a girl, so her boyfriend puts him in his place. Forced to walk home in the rain, Miss Watson drives past him, asking if he wants to come to hers. Later at hers, Norman decides to kill her....

So there we go guys, Season 1 in a nut shell! Its sounds confusing, but I assure you it's so addictive! Each episode ends on a cliff hanger making you want to watch more! I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and I can't wait to watch the following seasons!


The second series, (which we're about half way through) is called Orphan Black. I'll talk about this series in another post.!


Hope you enjoy reading and would love to hear your thoughts if you've seen The Bates Motel!
