My week in pictures ♡

<3 I had a pretty jam-packed week and i am absolutely exhausted!! BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS !!! I really can't believe that my school still hasn't broken up for the hols when every other school in the country has (probs a slight exaggeration but .. MEH) So here goes with my week:

<3 Monday: I had a lazy day, as you can see my mum snapped me relaxing on the couch, heeehe. 

<3 Tuesday: I went to a college open evening! This was so exciting for me since i've never visited a college before and i really had no idea what to expect. The picture above is an over view of all the different courses. There were so many to look at that i just ended up going into each subject and grabbing a leaflet on it. As soon as i get some time, i'm going to have to sit down, go through them all and have a serious think about my future (its all so scary!!). I have a few generalized ideas of what i would like to study at college. Photography (a must!), psychology, english literature, some kind of science .. and possibly environmental studies (which is classed as a science)  The best thing would be for me to know what career i want to end up doing, but i honestly have NO clue. Almost every teacher i talked to that day asked: "So, what would you like to be?" and i just had to say, i do not know! I have to choose 4 courses and then drop one by the second year! How do you choose with so much on offer!?? So i will have to have chosen my college and sent of my application by December this year! I just feel that i'm too young to be deciding these things, but clearly i need to grow up and get my life organised !! ahaaa, its all so confuddling!
Anyway, the college was great and had a really nice campus and atmosphere. It is very likely to be the one i go to out of my two choices!  Are any of you going to be starting college soon? Do you have any advice?

<3 Wednesday: This was the first proper dress rehearsal for my dance show! I looooove doing the shows so much and since we only get to do them every other year they always seem so special! As you can see from the picture i am modelling that to die for slicked back look! and some very garish lippy, hahaa! The make-up is extravagant but its all for dramatic effect. 

<3 Thursday: The first live show! It was so exciting finally getting to do my dance in front of an audience!! But also very tiring, i got home at around 11 and asleep by 1, i am not good with late nights!!

<3 Friday: SPORTS DAYY !! and what can i say ??... i like to get into the spirit of things !! ahaa, my tutor was America, unfortunately we didnt win but i made sure i waved our falg !! Loving the face paints. It was soo nice all day, and got the whole day off lessons. You gotta love sports day. I did long jump and came 5th, hahaa, not my usual standard but oh well. That was my last ever sports day (small tear) My school life is nearing the end :'( 

<3 Saturday: My grandparents were down with their adorable little dog, Lady. I wish i had taken a pic of her! We made the trip into portsmouth as you know if you saw my last post and did some shopping in the rain (good old British Summertime!) I got this poster which i LOVE !! I'm really into all the Keep Calm and Carry On stuff and this poster just made me laugh so much !! I spent the afternoon with my dad going over plans for our american road trip this summer. Only 13 days to goooooooo !!!!!

<3 Sunday: IT'S SHOW TIME! Eleven hours i spent at that theater on sunday, ELEVEN !!! but it was so much fun. We did two full shows with a half hour break in between, and it was amazing! I can't wait for the dvd to come so i can watch it all through properly. Everyone had a bit of a cry when it was all over, its always sad!
<3 So now its rainy and wet and i really need to start packing for ma hols !! byeeee m'loverlies,
