Star Light Categories: (12.6.18) Tuesday – Teen Lifestyle: Those annoying zits/spots!

You’re probably thinking or screaming “YES! She’s finally posting about the annoying zits/spots!” Every Teens nightmare when they hit puberty what makes it worse is when the heat comes they come out more. Am I right? It’s okay if I’m not because everyone has different make up gene in their body; if you haven’t learnt it in school why not? Or you have and you weren’t listening because you find sciences so boring?

Your probably thinking she’s got perfect skin now and did she have perfect skin when she was a teen. To be quite honest with you I still get spots now and then more so now because of the heat; I absolutely hate them with a passion because they are so unattractive to be honest with you, not as much as on my face because I use loads of make up lotion every morning and then loads of other things before I start with the whole make up routine.

I didn’t have any routine back when I was a teen because there wasn’t anyone out there to inspire me to wear make up or groom myself other than stupid unnecessary hair that’s not meant to be there. This was the early 2000s when I was in my teens because there’s nothing you could do or anything but then I acted like I didn’t care about what I looked but I just convinced myself that I wasn’t pretty enough or anything even though I tried the effort to make myself good about myself.

Spots/zits for me are a pain because I hate it so much especially with the whole massive one on the side of your chin no matter what side it is. There’s alway one where everyone can see it no matter how much make up you put on to cover it as soon as the make up starts to come off if you been working a lot and sweating a lot that’s when you know everyone starts to notice it.

Especially if you’re at school and kids might start picking on you or make fun of you because of it. To be honest you guys have probably got the best outcome of stuff to sort out all of the spots/zits to sort them out than I did. I didn’t even have the patience to stick with the daily things to sort them out. I think I just popped mine when they came but I don’t know if it’s true or not if you’re meant to pop them but I came out fine no scaring or anything. Don’t know who came out with that lie or rumour to be honest with you.

If you know the reason why you shouldn’t pop them do let me know because I never understood that one even to this day and I’m a whole lot older than you guys. I’m useless at talking about things like this when I blank things out when I was teen; I’m quite good at blanking my past out to be honest, if you want to me do anymore about these types of things do comment below I’ll try and be as useful as I can be.

Teen Lifestyle: Clothing Range, Prom Clothing, Make Up changed since I was a teen. (2001-2010 my teen years)

Over the last 8 years since 2010 had arrived the new decade had arrived thousand of new clothing line, make up, prom clothing have changed since my time when I was a teen. Things have changed since the complete 2000 had arrived; I started secondary school/high school to some people but we call it secondary school in the U.K. however I started secondary in 2001 in September, through the time of school and college clothing and make up industries were still trying to work out what to make millennium a house hold name for itself.

It was trying come out of the 90’s to which they were trying to do the cross over; it still wasn’t much until now where you can actually find your own dress sense, more range of make up and a lots more ranges of prom dresses now then there was back in my day. There’s plenty to chose from and being able to feel you. I guess theses days now fashion has become more adaptable to what people actually want; they are getting there in lots of different areas from one generation to another generation suiting for everyone needs, which is really nice and cool. 

I really like the prom dresses that have been coming out every year; I’m like my god they are so pretty I wish I had these back in my day, there wasn’t enough out there back then and everything. I ended up with a black mesh over a cream lining; I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of it or  me wearing it, I’m quite luckily I don’t have one saved on here because I’m quite conconsious about how look in it and what I was quite insecure back then. 

I thought I was fat back then but I was actually quite slim back then and I have put weight on over the years since then. I guess bodies changes over the years and what not. When I was a teen I didn’t wear much make up or anything like that over the years then like I said there wasn’t much make up back that then. I did have make up back then but it didn’t appeal to me back then; I just didn’t understand much back then as I didn’t have anyone telling me how to do it or anything back then, however I know more now and how to do it making me feeling comfortable with myself. 

I didn’t have much money back then because I didn’t work and etc obviously until I left college 2011. That’s when I started to earn money and being able to do things for myself; that’s when I started to work on myself, finding my way in life as a young 20 year old at the time who just finished education and etc. 

I believe that teens of today have got more freedom and money to be able to do things today than I use to have back then. It’s goes to show how much things changed the first 10 years of 2000 and now. It’s about the times changing over the years and also there’s things that I would of done when I could. The fact that there’s things you guys can’t do now what I use to do; especially with new houses being built, and etc. 

Teens lifestyle: “See you again” – Story Based

I got my sight set on you and I’m ready to aim like I have a heart that will never be tamed. I knew that you were something special when you spoke my name and now I can’t wait to see you again. I’ve got a way of knowing when something is right like I feel that I must have known you in another life because I felt this deep connection when you looked into my eyes. Now I can’t wait to see you again.

It’s like a film that every teen girl watches because the last time I freaked out I just kept on looking down as I stuttered as you stroked my hair when you asked me what I was thinking about. It like felt like I couldn’t breathe once again you asked me what was wrong with me; my best friend Lilly said “oh she’s just being Miley”, the next time we hang out I will have redeem myself but my heart it can’t rest until then I can’t wait to see you again.

I got this feeling deep inside as my phone rang and it was you calling me to ask me tomorrow night; I’m not a mind reader but I can read the signs that you can’t wait to see me again, my anxiety is tripping out like I want to but I don’t want to but knowing your fine with me and you help me calm down.

I just can’t wait to see you again that I can’t control my excitement but with butterflies in my stomach. I know you would come running to me to calm me down. Your my guardian angel and I can’t wait to see you again.

Teen Lifestyle: “I kissed a girl” – Story Based

I woke up this morning thinking this was never the way I planned not even my intention but I got to be brave; as I’m hanging out by the fence of the bike shed with you but I lost my discretion, this is not what I’m not use to but I just want to try it on you and you agreed to let me try.

I kissed a girl and I liked it. The taste of her cherry chapstick still on my lips in my science lesson as I bit my lips thinking about that kiss; I couldn’t believe that I kissed a girl to try it, I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it even though it felt so wrong but it so right and it doesn’t mean I’m in love tonight as I came home from school. Laying on my bed thinking about kissing a girl that day and I liked it.

Your name stayed in my head but it doesn’t matter because your my experimental game. It’s just human nature even though it’s not what good girls do it’s not how they should be behave. Yet my head gets so confused it’s hard to obey our thoughts when we are so magical with soft skin, red lips and so kissable. It’s hard to resist it and resisting the most touchable thing. It’s too good to deny it so why is such a big deal; it’s innocent thing to do of falling in love with someone who’s the same sex as you, just need to get over it as this is now the 22nd century not the 21st anymore and the world is changing.

Teen Lifestyle: Violence is not the answer to life

You will hear things in the news or play video games or watch violent films thinking that it’s so cool or they are awful things. To be quite frankly violence on the streets and towns are not okay; by coping things from video games or watching violent films are not okay because it’s not cool or anything like that, you won’t get 9 lives on a game and come back to life, once your dead your dead in real life and there is only a few that make it through the injuries but that’s because people who maybe near by witness or find the person who needs help to get to the hospital. Then it’s either a risk if they survive it or not but at least their family members know that they are in hospital and be there. 

Violence is never the answer in life you can be arrested and be in prison for the rest of your life because at the end of the day you won’t be able to break out of jail or no one else will break you out. In this real world it doesn’t work like that in a non real world I’m sorry to break it to you guys who think it is. 

It ruins your life, love ones and many more this is because you think it’s okay to do it if your favourite character from a film or favourite game or just to impress a gang it’s not okay. Knife crime, gun crime and any other sort of crime that can bodily harm another human being is wrong. Furthermore attacking elderly people is wrong as well or robbing them is wrong why should they be the ones victimised when we should be helping them out. 

Don’t go swearing off or act like your one of those people who think your all it because at the end of the day what are you trying to prove? Respect or something. If you want respect you have to treat other people with respect the way they want to be respected and they will give it to you back the way you want it. Violence isn’t the answer to any of these solutions.

Teen Lifestyle: “Bet on it” – Story Based

Better late than never but I did say this week was a hit and miss with blogs not being on different days due to being ill at the start of the week. (Ill on 30.4.18) 

You sit in class or college interviews or college open evenings; yet you find that everybody’s always talking to you trying to get into your head but all you want to do is listen to your own heart talking, and need to count on yourself instead of everyone else telling you what you can and can’t do. 

Do you ever lose yourself of getting what you want? Did you ever want to get on a ride then realise you just want to get off? Did you ever push away the ones away that you’ve should’ve of held close to you? Did you ever let go somewhere along the line? Did you ever not know what to do with your life? 

The fact that you’re not going to stop because that’s not who you are; you just have to give it all even if that’s what you got as it’s your only plan, will you ever find what you have lost? Deep down you know you can because you can bet on it bet on yourself because that’s what you want to make it right for yourself; that’s the only way to turn your life around as today is the day, your that type of person who means what they have to say and you can bet on it.

How will you known if there’s a path worth taking? Should you question every move you make? Yet with all that you have lost you feel like you’re heart is breaking but you don’t want to make the same mistake. 

The same question keeps on spinning around in you’re head like did you ever doubt your dream will come true? Did you ever blame the world, but never blame yourself? You will never try to live a lie again because you don’t want to win this game if you can’t play it your way. 

Your not going to stop for being who you are; all you got to do is to give it all you got even if you find what you lost because you know you can by betting on it, as you want to make it right as it’s the only way to turn your life around and that day is today. You know perfectly well you’re that type of person who means what you got to say. You know you can bet on it. 

Hold up give me room to think as you got to bring it down to you’re options by practicing you’re swing of doing your own thing; it’s no good if all your see yourself but in someone else is dream but not yours, however you got to go out on your own even if the world is such a scary place and all the answers to you’re questions all inside of you. All you got to do is to believe in yourself that you can do it.

Teen Lifestyle: “You belong To Me” – Story Based

I’m sitting near by on a bench at school with my friends I can hear you on you’re phone with your girlfriend because she’s upset as she’s going off about something that you once said yet she doesn’t get you’re humour like I do. We hang out in my room on typical Tuesday night listening to the kind of music that she doesn’t like and she’ll never know your story like I do. 

She wears short skirts I wear t-shirts but she’s a cheer leader captain and I’m on the bleachers bench taking pictures yet dreaming about the day when you wake up and find what you’re looking for has been here the whole time. If you could see that I’m the one who understands you and I’ve been here all along standing beside you the whole time. So why can’t you see that you belong to me. 

We walk in the streets with you in your worn out jeans I can’t help but thinking this is how it ought to be; laughing on a park bench thinking to myself “hey, isn’t this easy?” And all you’ve got to do is a smile that could light up this whole town because I haven’t seen it in a while since she’s brought you down. Yet you say you’re fine I know you better than that but you know what I’m going to say. Hey what you doing with a girl like that? 

She wears high heels that can break her neck I wear sneakers that won’t break my neck. She’s a cheerleader captain and I’m sitting on the bleachers bench taking photos for the school. I’m just dreaming about the day that when you finally wake up and find what you’re looking for has been here the whole time.

Standing by and waiting for me at my backdoor all this time how could you not know that you belong with me. I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night; I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re about to cry, I know all of you’re favourite songs and you tell me about your dreams and I know where you belong and to think I know it’s me.

Have you ever thought maybe you belong with me? You belong with me.

Teen Lifestyle: “Never miss a beat” – Story Based

What did you learn today? I learnt nothing. What did you do today? I did nothing. What did you learn at school? I didn’t go. Why didn’t you go to school? I don’t know. It’s cool to know nothing because school is a waste off time in my eyes that’s why I play up in class at school.

Televisions on the blink there’s nothing on it but I really want a coat with the words on it. My mum asked me what I want for tea? I just want crisps. Why don’t you join that team? I just did. Take a look take a look take loom at the kids on the streets because no they never miss a beat; never miss never miss never miss a beat, here comes the referee with lights flashing and that’s living the best bit of the day. 

Why don’t you run away? Are you kidding? What is the golden rule? Just don’t say anything that’s how you survive throughout school life because you know no one will listen to you. You know that we never miss a beat with what’s going on you think we don’t know anything but we do. Just remember we never miss the beat of what’s going on.

Teen Lifestyles: “Morden way as a teen” – Story Based

The things that I know because I’ve seen it either it looks great and I want it; looks great and more dangerous to do because I think it looks cool, to be able to get noticed but yet there is consequences. Yet there’s no point in sitting on my own going crazy. Do you what? I was put here for a reason in the world could you tell me in three words or more to know how to stay safe when I’m out and about. 

It’s the only way of getting out of here to take a lesson from the ones who have been there before because my brain is not as damaged but in need of some repair of what happened over the years. Hold on to the basics because we can’t change all of our tactics as there’s no point sitting here going crazy. It’s the only way of getting here is that this is the modern way by faking it everyday taking it as comes because we are not the only ones that live in fear and struggle is that what we use to say in this modern way? 

I know where I’m going and that we are ever knowing that I will stop at nothing just to get what I want. It’s the only way of getting out of here is to survive by carrying on what we do everyday enjoy the everyday living and be free from things. This is the modern way. 

Teen Lifestyle: How stressed are you now? – Exam Time

Oh boy it’s that time of year for all year 6s, year 11s and sixth forms and unnecessary exams for the other years need to do exams. Never really got the idea for years 7,8,9 to do exams when year 10s don’t unless they do but I don’t remember them. I did tend school honestly it’s been about 11/12years who I left now so it’s just a blur to me.
However if your school has summoned you to do Easter courses revision classes over the holidays I know not ideal as it’s your holidays but you’re first exam may just be around the corner sooner than you expected. I hated going back into school to do Easter sessions classes when I was on a school holiday my time not school time; to be honest they really weren’t that useful to be honest in my opinion, I know when I get into the exam I’ll forget everything anyway and there’s a good reason for that I panic when it comes to exams especially maths. Not even sure why or how you can revise for that subject to be honest never understood that one. If someone could explain that one to me that would be grand. Thanks.
You have really good parents who pull out all of the stops to help you revise to the fact that they crack a tooth in the process; believe me when one of my parents helped me and my two brothers at the time we were doing ours they cracked a tooth because it was that stressful, to be honest me and my parent would argue because I was stressed and I would say stupid things like “I wish I was home schooled” etc that was because I was annoyed that everything wouldn’t stick into my head or I would give up because there was so much reading involved nothing stay. If you remember me saying the other day about being dyslexic and language difficulties; that played a huge part in my exams because there was a lot of words, and questions that I wouldn’t understand but couldn’t ask my reader to explain to me what it meant. Even if I had extra time.
Loved the extra time where I could take my time on each exam question. Those were the days to the fact that I had the advantage to get the paper done. Still didn’t help my nerves though. If you have learning difficulties and have extra time use it as your advantage and use the quiet space that you’re given to do take your time.
I have to say is study hard and you’ll achieve great things whether you’re a practical person or not you be alright. Good luck everyone in the UK.
