Get Over It: Short story/Advice article

I know, im updating the old blog AGAIN! What has gotten into me?

Anyway I wrote a short story/advice article thingy which I though you may wish to read, I dedicate it to anyone going through heartbreak. I hope you enjoy it as I certainly do, it apparently should take you 3 WHOLE MINS to read so don’t worry about taking up too much time out of your very busy lives. Enjoy and see you soon, Xx

 

Confusion. That’s the primary source of emotion. Why? Just, why? You thought things were going so well, clearly you were wrong. It doesn’t matter how they did it. It just hurts that they did. No matter what the inspirational quotes and magazines tell you, at this moment, you do need them. Whether it’s been one date or 143, if you’re divorced, newly single or have always technically been single but wishing for more. It hurts.

Of course like any big grievance you go through the famous 5 stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Everyone becomes a love guru telling you this, but they always seem to miss out the most important question that any person who’s in pain wants to know. How long? Obviously you know from any lecture, that nothing lasts forever. But, forever is a very long time and I’d kind of like this torture to end sooner rather than later.

My story is no different. We were on our 14th date, 36th if you count the chilled days at each other’s houses (I did). We were coming to the abrupt end of a coffee break together in our lunch break. The he told me. Another girl was it? Longing to be single? Moving away? Nope. None of those Rom com excuses. Lesson one anyone learns with love is that it isn’t like the movies, obviously, that’s why this is a book. One day or another, they will dump you. Doesn’t matter if it’s a he or a she or just an it, everything ends. No use in dwelling on it though because it won’t happen just once. Even those who marry their first love are lying to themselves. That was not their first love because love comes in all forms and positions. When you’re just a baby you love your parents, for some of you fortunate few, you still do, somewhere under that shield of adulthood and independence.

Since then it’s been the latest boyband member, the one with the cheeky smile was always my fave. Or maybe you were more of a mysterious cast member type, the one in a popular TV show or soap opera where he wasn’t a bad boy, just misunderstood. They both come to an end, either through finding their own love interest or you simply came to your senses and realised their whole life that you saw, was just an act. At least you did grow out of it; some people are forever fantasizing about being the one who gets chosen out of a crowd of millions.

And then there’s the school crushes, wow, they never get old do they. If you don’t like anyone, you’re lying to yourself. There’s always that one boy that catches your eye and then makes your mouth drop (and maybe even your pants if you’re lucky enough to have a reciprocated crush – never happens). And that brings the cycle all the way back to the current situation, a break up. Hurts, yeah?

But don’t you see, you’ve loved before, and thus, you will love again. You may even be broken up with again, or maybe this time, you’ll be the one to do the dumping. Either way, everyone goes through it, heartbreak is tough but, it’s the only way to know you’ve truly loved. Knowing that you once have loved is better than never loving, so, in your own time, under your own circumstances, you will…

Get Over It.

Blogmas Day 5: My Top TV Shows

I am a Magpie,

I just realised today that a fellow blogger friend of mine is doing Blogmas! And literally I am stealing it from her…I am so sorry A! I have no idea why I never thought of it before? If you’ve read some of my other post’s you’ll notice that I was toying with the idea of Vlogmas but knew I wouldnt have anything to actually film…

I’ve had this blog for over 2 years now and eventhough I know I havent been great at updating you guys I feel like it a great way to document my life. So from this day till christmas day I PLEDGE:

I will upload a blog post every single day!

So this if the first post (even if it is 5 days late)

My Top TV Show Picks:

As it’s the festive season you may find yourself being more and more tempted to instead of going out and socialising, simply staying in and binge watching miscellaneous TV shows (especially the christmas specials) here is a list a have compiled for those of you who are a little stuck on what to watch this holiday season.

  • F.R.I.E.N.D.S – this will forever be a favourite of mine. My eldest brother first got me into it as he was obsessed and has the full box set. Its all about a group of Friends really (clues in the name) who live in New York and get into some hilarious and often very relate able situations. You will fall in love with the characters and are assured to laugh at some point in each episode.
  • SUBURGATORY – This amazing show is all about a teen girl who moved out of her beloved city to the suburbs. You follow her as she leads the life of a city girl in a suburb town. She goes to a new school, and tackles love, freindships and family. But dont be confused this is not your typical main girl character…like seriously she’s pretty kick ass!
  • GLEE – an absolute classic! If you love singing and dancing then you’ll love this show. Its all about a singing group in a high school and all the members juggling growing up whilst trying to win their next competition.
  • SKINS – This may be a little less tame (drugs/alcohol/sex included) but I think it’s fantastic for those of you aged 16 – 18 as you may be experiencing the same types of things. The series is all about a group of friends going through their college years in the UK (that’s 16-18 year old’s fyi) and although I wouldn’t recommend you copying a lot of their actions its a great programme and you find yourself getting attached to characters you would never dream of talking too in real life.
  • MISFITS – A slightly more tamer version of SKINS but with the added twist of…superpowers…yeah I know sounds lame. But seriously after I finished Skins there was a whole in my life I never thought I wouldn’t fill but then I was recommended this and OMG. Its seriously addictive! (Nathan = Bae [if you know, you know]).
  • MIRANDA – Miranda Heart will forever be my favourite comedian and I feel like around the Christmas season you need a good chuckle to warm up. There is a serious overdose of British comedy where you follow a woman and her friends and family as she tries to get through life. This is definitely my favourite out of all these to watch at Christmas as it is very family friendly so you can invite your whole clan round to join you in hysterics. 

I am aware that all of these are pretty old and im pretty sure none of them are being created anymore but that means you can finish the whole series’ without panicking about cliffhanger’s.

I hope you enjoyed these and I shall see you tomorrow!

HAPPY BLOGMAS!
