Opening Up

Ever since I was little, I was very shy. I would keep to myself and never really speak to people who I wasn’t familiar with. Growing up, I never really participated in school. I wouldn’t raise my hand even though I knew the answer. I wouldn’t really speak in groups because I wasn’t comfortable around them etc.

   I was like that until my senior year of high school. I was determined to be more open and talk more to people that I wouldn’t normally talk to. It was a bit hard I’m not going to lie, I’m more of an introvert than an extrovert. I mean don’t get me wrong, I am the complete opposite when I’m with my closest friends. I’m loud, energetic and talkative. But I’ve just aways had this problem when it came to meeting new people and I don’t know why.

   I’ve opened up more and really started talking and engage more with others both inside and outside of school. Especially when I went to college. It’s a time to meet new people and find yourself too. Being more confident in speaking out just and just being comfortable made me make new friends at university and it has made me come out of my shell. I raise my hand more often, I voice my opinion and also talking to other has made me gain new friends.

   The moral of the story is to try and do something out of you’re comfort zone. Challenge yourself and see if you can accomplish it. It can be about anything really. You just have to believe in yourself ( as cheesy as that sounds). Let me know what you would like to accomplish or do something out of your comfort zone. We’re in this together!

Lets Catch Up Shall We?


Wow. It’s been almost since I’ve done a blog post. Where has the time gone? A lot has changed since I’ve last posted/chatted with you guys. Where do I begin?! Go and get a snack or a drink because I have a feeling this is going to be a really long post!

Well for starters.. I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL! After four years of stress, exams and drama I’ve finally did it! I graduated in May for those who are wondering. It has been a crazy roller coaster. But sometimes I do miss it (low key shh). Another thing is that I completed my first semester of University, which is really exciting! College is a whole different ballgame  than high school. You basically have to be an adult, doing your own thing. But there will  be another blog post that talks about that!

What else… hmm. One thing that happens after high school is that you don’t talk to your friends that you use to talk to for the past four years. They go to different colleges  and have just changed over the past few months. Honestly, I thought that two friendships would’ve lasted longer but we’ve grown distant and don’t have the same views and likes anymore. I mean that what live is right? We’re going to gain and lose friends for the rest of our lives.

I really missed doing this. I want to thank Bethan for telling me to make an account. I’ve also feel like we’ve grown apart as well. I don’t know why but we’ve have. I guess we’ve been so busy with our lives. The 26th of January will be two years of being friends. Bethan if you’re reading this, I hope, I miss you and we need to catch up yeah?

Another thing that’s been doing really well for me is my Youtube Channel. If you guys didn’t know. I have a youtube channel and it’s called: HelloStayChic ! I’ve been doing loads of videos and vlogs and everything basically. It’s doing very well. I really want to improve my content and editing etc. Filming and editing and making videos is something that i have a passion for. And I have friends that love and do it as well. So if you want to check it out, go for it! Subscribe (click the red button) if you want to see more of my videos! *Subscribe to my Youtube Channel Here*

By the way, happy new year everyone! Hope the new year brings you, your friends and family a lot of happiness this year! I hope a lot of good things will happen for me this year. I’m working really hard at college, creating youtube videos and just setting a bunch a goals for myself this year! I’m really excited for what’s to come and I can’t wait to write about it for you guys!

I hope you’re excited that I’m back and I’m really happy to start writing again!

Until next time, Ames xx
