hello lovelies!! As part of my pledge to ‘actually write something once in a while’, I am coming at you with the latest installment in my (not so) crazy life. Last time, it was the nervousness and euphoria of GCSE results day – and now it’s the anticipation and overwhelming experience of starting Year 12.… Continue reading my first week at sixth form
Dear readers, Happy New Year! It’s me, back from the seemingly-endless abyss to grace your computer screens (or mobile/tablet, I don’t discriminate) with my witty, fire-fuelled repertoire (lol).
