I have seen a number of these blogs about lately and I thought I would have a go, my 15 year old self was 10 years ago so this will take some thoughts and thinking, which as someone like me is gonna be a challenge in itself! HAHA!

My 15 year old self was an overweight, self conscious, geek who went to an all girls grammar school who had a strong friendship group. To this day that sounds pretty much the same as my life now, so this is definitely going to be interesting as I will probably use this advice for nowadays. Hmm.

  • Kiss that boy, it will lead to nothing
  • Alcohol is good LOL.
  • Don’t try and get with the popular lot,  your friends are true
  • Learn to appreciate your friends as 6th form we all go to different groups
  • Really focus on your work
  • Try not to keep being late
  • Try and interact with boys more
  • Do more social activities
  • Do more school activities
  • Take up a sport
  • You really aren’t as fat as you think you are
  • Really decide what you want in life
  • DO NOT LISTEN TO YOUR CAREERS ADVISOR, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO ALEVELS IN MATHS, ENGLISH & SCIENCE TO BECOME A TEACHER!!
  • Don’t do something because its with the trend
  • Get close to him (on the bus)
  • See a Dr sooner
  • Do something with your appearance, put some effort in girl – do your hair and make up!
  • Don’t bother choosing ICT for GCSE
  • If you are going to do Graphics for GCSE please think before you make that 3D children playground
  • If you want to read, read…..
  • If you want to do that geeky thing do it…..

There you go 🙂

Jealousy is a horrible trait girls.

I am sure that boys/men lol the opposite sex lets say do not often get jealous, I am sure they do but not as much as girls/women. Okay for the blog purpose it’ll be girls and boys can’t be dealing with all the faff of the lovely “/” symbol.

Jealousy is a horrible trait, it can make you feel shit about yourself, it can make you want to change yourself when you should accept yourself and it can also make you lose friends, gain fake friends and also make enemies.

There are different types of jealousy good and bad of course:

The Work – I am jealous of their promotion, I am jealous of the way they work, I am jealous of the money that they receive and I am jealous of their lifestyle that comes with their job. OF course some of these can also play a big part in pushing yourself forward to gain that promotion, to learn new skills etc – but if it starts to take over your life and changes the way your out of work lifestyle will be, take a sit back, relax and think what do you deserve more and what makes you happy.

The Relationship – Whether it will be the ex partner and you’re jealous of the new partner of them, or whether you are jealous of other relationships because you are the single one, or you’re in an unhappy relationship – this will always bring issues. I personally cannot stand girls in relationships who are jealous of their partners “girl” friends, they are the worst type, when they are insecure little girls. Use the positives to any advantages though, if you’re not happy in a relationship then see why you are unhappy and chose what to do about that.

The Friendship – This can be if someone is more popular than you, they could be getting more attention or again their lifestyle (you cannot keep up with their spending money, days out etc). I have been in the position of the jealous friend, we were a threesome of friends and this one particular girl just turned on me because me and the other girl were getting closer but that’s only because of circumstances. It made for awful days at school (but then again school can be the worst place for friendships – friendships aren’t often carried through life from school). If you do become in these situations truly think who your true friends are.

Life & comparisons – I am bigger than that girl, I am smaller than that girl, I have awful fashion sense compared, she is prettier than me, I have less money etc etc. You will get to the stage of jealousy in which you feel uncomfortable about yourself and you will feel weaker and there is no need to do that. You are you, you are beautiful and you are precious, individual and were put on this earth to not be a copy cat.
