Hi, My name is Maisie and my new years resolution was to start a blog. So here I am. At the beginning. This blog could be a total car crash or it could go well, which I really hope it does. I’ll tell you a bit about myself. I’m 14 years old and I live in London. I’m in year 10 at school so I have just started the GCSE curriculum. The subjects I’m doing are English, Maths, Science, French, ugh, and Geography (All Compulsory.) And My chosen subjects are art and music. I chose art because I think I’m kinda creative and I love photography. And I chose music because when I’m older, I want to be a singer-songwriter. I also chose Latin as an extra. I would have chosen drama which i love but our drama department isn’t great and I’m not a fan of any of the drama teacher either, well,none of them are really fans of me to be honest. I do acting outside of school though. With a small group of friends I do LAMDA exams which are like acting exams but with a posh name. I also play for the local girls football team and I’m in the school Rugby team. I’m also interested in fashion and makeup, but I’m not one of those girls who slap it on, which is fine if they want to , but I stick to sort of nude colours.
The reason I’m starting this blog is because I’m finding the pressure of GCSE’s very stressful and sometimes I get upset when I realize the next two years of my life could affect my whole future. Scary huh? So I thought, instead of bottling it up, I could talk to people like me who are finding school hard. And maybe I could even help some people.
This is only the beginning of my blog so I don’t really know what its gonna be like. I’ll share some nice photos I’ve taken, maybe some outfit ideas for certain occasions, makeup tips, school advice. I don’t know. I really don’t. Im just gonna roll with it.
And before I go i’d like to stress that I’m NOT one of the beautiful popular girls at school. I’m pretty average. I have a nice small group of friends who are lovely. So my advice isn’t gonna be how to become popular or anything, its gonna be how to be happy cause you don’t need to have 1000s of followers on instagram, or perfect hair and a perfect body to be happy. Also I’ll try and do boy advice but I’m pretty inexperienced in that department. But we can learn together.
Thanks so much for reading,
