Surviving on excitement – The Wanderlust Series

I love aeroplane views.

It’s been a really long day and to say I’m exhausted would be an understatement. I guess the only thing that actually kept me awake today was the excitement I got from traveling. Honestly, I’m really happy to be spending time with the family.  The best (and also worst) part is that I have no network, and so I don’t – well I can’t – use my phone much at all. Why it’s the best part? Because then I get to actually take in my surroundings and have an even better experience. Why is it the worst part as well? Because I miss my jaaaaakey. Oh well.

Because idk.

I’m going on an adventure – The Wanderlust Series

Hii. My family and I are going on a little trip for the weekend, but I would like to think of it as an adventure – I’m going on an adventure. I even made a tiny song thing about it because that’s how excited I am.

Traveling -or adventures – make me happy; I love exploring/wandering/traveling, and all the experiences they bring with. Also, they give me great stories to tell later on. It helps to get me out of my comfort zone and to find things that I didn’t even know I was looking for. It’s just amazing all-in-all. From the excitement of being in the airport and the thrill of being in an airplane to hotel rooms with super comfy beds and an amazing gym (sorry but I had to) – it’s an experience worth having over and over again. For these next few days, I’m starting a new blog series called the wanderlust series because why not.

Talk soon,

An open letter to my mother


Because you’re super amazing and I love you, like really.

Dear Mum,

Let me start by telling you that you’re the best mother in the whole world. Ever since I was little, you have been my role model and my mentor, never in my life have I seen someone as strong as you are. Mentally, physically, or emotionally. Honestly, I feel so proud when someone says I’m just like my mother, because there isn’t anyone else I’d rather be like.  I really do appreciate you even though I may not show it very often.

Thank you for always supporting my dreams and decisions, and for staying by my side through everything, whether it be good or bad. Thank you for making me the person I am today, without you I don’t know where I would be. Thank for for all the sacrifices you make to keep us happy, I understand that it isn’t easy. Thank you for working countless hours in a week just to provide for the four of us, we truly are blessed to have a mother like you. Thank you for the laughter and the smiles, all the lessons, and for loving me for who I am. Thank you for knowing when I was wrong and spanking me when I was being a brat. Of course I hated it then, but looking back I’m so grateful that you did.

Thank you for teaching me the importance of hard work, for making me independant, for passing down some of your best qualities. You’ve taught me to always stand up for myself, to never let anyone belittle me. I am a better person beacause of you. There’s nothing that I want more than to make you proud. Thank you for always being super amazing, and for accepting my friends instead of telling me I don’t need friends like someone had said.

I know I haven’t always been the best sport and that I’m not very good at communicating with you – or anyone – properly, I get angry very easily and argue on really silly things, and for that, I’m truly sorry. Sometimes I tend to lose sight of the things that are most important to me. You are so important, so special, you mean everything to me, and I don’t want to take you for granted. I’m sorry for always arguing, for not immediately listening when you ask me to do something, and for alwayss being lazy. Like extra lazy.

Lastly, I promise to try my best to change and to be a better (and more helpful) daughter. I want you to know that I (as well as the other three) will always be here for you no matter what. You need to know that we love you so so soo much, and we always will. You are our best friend, one we can always laugh or cry with, someone we can always count on.

I love you mommy.

Love, your eldest.

When you finally get out of your comfort zone

What exactly is this so-called comfort zone? Well, a comfort zone is a state of mind, you could say; a situation that you would feel the most relaxed and comfortable being in. Whether it be in bed all snuggled up, watching your favorite series, or sitting in your reading nook surrounded by books, everyone has a comfort zone.

Let me tell you a thing or two that I’ve learned about the comfort zone from experience. Although you may feel safe being in your comfort zone, it’s not exactly your friend. Of course, it may seem like a beautiful place – and I’m not saying it isn’t – but by staying inside your comfort zone, you’re not allowing yourself to grow as a person.

Now though it may sound scary to some, you’ve got to get out of your comfort zone. Preferably sooner than later. By doing so, you’re allowing yourself to be more productive and bring about positive changes in your life. You’ll discover new things, learn stuff about yourself that you didn’t already know, and you’ll find yourself happier than ever. You just need to believe in yourself and take that leap of faith. When you get out of your comfort zone, it enables you to feel more confident, boosts your self-esteem, and it also helps you to overcome fears. You’ll feel proud of yourself, believe me.

That’s all I have to say, for now at least. Just thought I’d put it out there.

One of those nights

It feels like one of those nights where I have no will to do anything. Those nights where everything seems dull and I just want to sleep. You know, those kinda nights where I feel a little melancholy.

All I want and all I need right now is you.

Truly fascinating


Do you ever just look up at the sky and get lost in admiration? I could look out the window and just stare for hours on end without realizing. It’s actually happened more than once, and to be honest, I’m not even surprised anymore when I catch myself dreaming because who wouldn’t be fascinated by nature?

The world is so amazing, really. I mean the fact that there are so many more stars and planets and galaxies beyond the sky is enough to excite me. Ever since I was little, I have loved everything that has to do with outer-space. If anything, my love for astronomy has only grown over the years. Do you ever wonder what would have happened if humans had never reached the level of technology we have today? What if space shuttles or rockets were never invented? What a nightmare.

My Time Away


After almost 10 months of being gone, I’ve finally decided to start blogging again. During these past 10 ish months, a lot has happened. So many people have come and gone, I’ve met so many wonderful people, made amazing friends. I even left the country with my family for a few weeks during summer, we really needed a break. Of course, there is more but those are tales to be told another time.

As of right now, I just wanted to briefly share what I have been up to. Well, I’ve started the first year of my A-Levels, and let me tell you a thing. AS requires full commitment and devotion to studying, kinda hard for a huge procrastinator like myself. That’s part of the reason I haven’t been blogging at all, because of the stress of completing IGCSE and then starting AS level. I thought it would be good if I started this again, I mean after all I really do enjoy it. And also, I have so much to share with you guys but I don’t really know where to begin.

Anyways, to keep my sanity and to unwind at the end of a stressful day/week, I’ll always head towards my last resort; books. Reading is my escape, you know what I mean? But some people *cough* jakey *cough*, say reading is boring. There’s nothing like a good book, a cup of coffee, a huge t-shirt, and super fuzzy sweatpants. Am I right or am I right?

All my paragraphs start with an ‘A‘, how cool is that? not. Yeah, that’s all I have, I’ll post again soon.

Lots of love,

Allie x
