Oops….I did it again!

Good Evening, Morning and Afternoon Bloggers,

I am so sorry. I did it again. I was doing really well for a couple of days and then I failed at my promise😦 But, I promise, I have a good reason!

I have been very ill, both physically, and emotionally. I was diagnosed during this time, with anxiety, and Bi-Polar Disorder. So, you know, yay me……

I can’t honestly say I’m surprised though, the way my mood swings and its effects on my ability to function were very big alarm bells that I just wanted to ignore them. I guess my advice to you all in this blog is, If you think you are suffering from a mental disorder, please, Speak Up!!!

You don’t need to deal with it on your own, and it’s only going to get worse if you don’t speak up. In light of recent events, with the sudden and very VERY sad death of Robin Williams, I URGE you all to please, if you are suffering, seel help, don’t suffer alone.

Here is a list of 4 Celebs who suffer from Bi-Polar, it’s more common than you think, and it effects different people, in different ways.
1. Tom Fletcher – Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Ukulele Player from British Pop Rock bands Mcfly/McBusted
2. Vivien Leigh – Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With The Wind
3. Carrie Fisher – princess Leia in the Original Star Wars trilogy
4. Linda Hamilton – Sarah Conner in Terminator

Mental Illness is nothing to be ashamed of, so please, speak up!!!

Bye for now, but not forever,

Love Lexi xx

Bullying……..it’s not ok!

Hello to my followers, old and new!

Promised I come back every 2-3 days didn’t I? Well, here I am🙂
I wasn’t going to post this as I couldn’t actually think of anything interesting and didn’t want to blog about nothing and be dull and boring, BUT then I had a thought whilst reading a story on the internet about Bullying.

I’m highly aware that bullying is widely talked about in the media and in every day lives as it’s an extremely pressing and troubling issue in our society. As someone who was constantly bullied in primary and secondary school, and to an extent, in my university life too. You would think that by the age of 19/20 and beyond people would be better at being honest and open towards their peers about their feelings but I’ve found it’s not the case.

I will openly admit that my body type is not what is considered as ‘beautiful’ and ‘perfect’ in society as I’m a bit overweight. That’s not to say I’m not self-confident as I think I am a pretty confident and open person who generally gets a long with everyone, and I would just like to stress that I am not in any way, shape, or form COMPLAINING about my body type as the only person that can do anything to change it is me, and I’m actively trying to do so. I don’t eat any kind of take-away food, well, except pizza…but pizza is delicious and I always get it gluten free AND vegetarian, but that’s not the point. My point is, people, please, try and be aware of how your words and actions may effect another person emotionally, psychologically and physically.

My next point goes out to all of you out there who have been bullied, and now because something about you has changed, whether it be age or self image or body type, YOU have become a BULLY! I know this girl, I won’t name and shame because that’s just as bad as bullying, and even as I type this I find myself feeling a little hypocritical, but I feel that I need to voice this opinion and my concerns. Anyway, I know this girl, who is on a TV show and her backstory is that she was bullied and that’s what motivated her to do what she’s doing, which is all well and good, what isn’t however, is that she has become a bully to certain people that I know, as well as myself. I find it very unnerving, and hypocritical, and, well, just downright pathetic that she seems to think it’s ok!

Bullying is never EVER the right way to go about things! If you have a problem with someone, you need to tell them you have a problem, bitching about them behind their back and turning a joke about them into a personal attack is despicable behaviour. As someone who was, and sometimes is still bullied I just can’t stand to be around people that are like this. I know, and I’ve seen what kind of effect bullying has on people and it’s not pretty. I suffer from clinical depression, as well as bi-polar disorder and it scares me to think that this is the result of the horrible verbal and sometimes physical bullying that I experienced as a child and into my mid-teens.

What I’m basically trying to say to y’all, is please, just think before you speak. If you don’t have anything nice to say to someone, don’t say anything at all. If you have a problem with the way someone is behaving, tell them, and most importantly, if you are being bullied, PLEASE, speak UP! You don’t have to suffer in silence and you don’t need to be ashamed. Some words that stuck with me from an inspiring young woman whom I admire very much, Carrie Hope Fletcher. She titled a VLOG with this caption and her video was about it, those words are, It’s okay, to not be okay. You don’t need to do things on your own, there is always someone who will be there to listen to you if you need help.

Feel free to comment or message me with any of your own stories if you ever need advice or just someone to talk to and I will do my best to listen and reply with someone helpful advice.

Until next time,
Lexi xx

P.S I mean it guys, if you have a problem with a bully and need someone to vent to or talk to, PLEASE get in contact with me. Please❤

Fresh Beginnings

Hello Lovelies🙂

Haven’t done this in a while have we? I apologise hugely for my absence and for being the worst blogger EVER! I promise you all from now on that I shall try and post every 2-3 days and I give you guys permission to spam my inbox if I don’t!!

So, what have I been up to since I last blogged? Hmm, oh, I went on my second year teaching placement for university. I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m studying Teaching at uni, specialising in Psych and History. I had the pleasure of teaching a wonderful bunch of year 11s for psychology for 3 weeks and I feel as if I am now more confident in teaching, and although most of the students are of similar age to myself, I built up a lovely rapport with them and they respected me as well which was awesome🙂

I’ve also been planning my 21st Birthday party which is in 39 days, eek! I’m doing 1920s as the theme and I absolutely cannot wait to hang out and spend the night with my nearest and dearest. I also discovered recently that I share my birthday with 3 of my favourite celebs! 2 musicians, and a cricketer. I share my birthday with the gorgeous Irish boy from One Direction (I’ve talked before about how much I love them), Niall Horan! We will both be 21 this year, so that’s a bit exciting. I also share my birthday with the awesomely talented Mr James Bourne! (Mcbusted, Busted. If ou don’t know him, look him up, he’s pretty fricken epic!) The last one if an Australian (My home country) cricketer by the name of Shane Warne, who is currently dating the incredibly gorgeous Miss Emily Scott! (seriously, so jealous! she’s awesome in more ways than 1, her rockin’ body probably has a lot to do with that😉 )
Has anyone else looked into which Celebs they share their birthday with? I’m always curious to know🙂

The last thing I guess I can talk about before I sign off is my upcoming trip to the beautiful city of London! It will be my first overseas trip and I cannot wait to embark on this exciting adventure all by myself. If you guys have any suggestions of places I should go and things I should see PLEASE comment them and let me know! I’m hoping to bump into some awesome musicians whilst I’m there……cough* cough* Dougie Poynter..cough* cough* and I’ll be sure to keep y’all posted!

That’s all for me today and I apologise for this super long post, I just felt as if I should keep up and keep y’all updated on whats been going on🙂

As always, I look forward to you comments and feedback,

Bye for now and talk soon,

Love Lexi xx

Cute Things!

Hey Bloggers!!,

Today, I went to the Zoo in Melbourne, Victoria in my home country of Australia. My trip to the zoo inspired a new topic for a blog, entitled Things ALMOST as cute as Dougie Poynter🙂

Image

Please comment, follow, criticise, whatever. Any and all feedback is appreciated!

To start us off, today’s thing that is almost as cute as Dougie Poynter goes to…………….

Capuchin Monkeys🙂

Capuchin monkeys are like little tiny monkeys are pretty god damn cute! Their tiny little faces and eyes and yeah, I just wanna smoosh their faces and I totally want to adopt one………..I would much rather like to adopt Dougie😛 but that’s beside the point!

 

Stay tuned as I will be continuing this topic tomorrow and probably until I run out of cute things that aren’t Dougie!

Love Lexi xx

Thank You

Hey Boys and Girls, how are we all?

Today I felt as if this was necessary, included above is of Dougie Lee Poynter, bassist, as well as song writer, for British band, McFly. It may come as no surprise to some people that Dougie suffered from alcohol and substance abuse problems while in McFly, it may however surprise most, that Dougie’s addiction got so bad that he tried to take his own life in February 2011, not long after his initial split from Frankie from The Saturdays. I won’t go into details about just how bad his addiction was, I’ll recommend that you read Unsaid Things…Our Story, McFly’s autobiography, if you want to know all about it, and to just find out information about the band in general. Anyway, I’m getting off topic here, I want to take this opportunity to Thank Dougie, yes, I said Thank, for him amazing strength, and for finding the will to carry on and get the help that he needed to beat his demons. 

So, I shall begin. Thank You so much Dougie for admitting to a doctor that you needed help, thank you for telling Harry, Tom and Danny that you were struggling. Thank You for accepting the counsellors orders to go into rehab and for being brave enough to stick it out for the whole 28 days, but, most importantly, thank you for successfully completing your rehabilitation and beating the horrible demons that you were having to deal with every day. I would just also like to say that  am so, so, so proud to be able to call you one of my idols, and for being a young man that others can look up to. I had absolutely no idea just how bad it got for you until I sat down and read Unsaid Things. I idolised you before i read your chapter, and will continue to idolise you long after I finish the book. 

Without you Dougie, there would be no McFly, without you, things just wouldn’t be the same. I know that I will probably never get the chance to meet you, to hug you, to just talk to you, and thank you for being the amazing Idol that you are, in person, so I pen this blog, in hope that if I, and my followers and friends, tweet and retweet this at you that one day you will read it. Words will never be enough to thoroughly express my gratitude and thanks to you but I hope that if you do get around to reading it, it will make your day a little bit better. 

I love you Dougie Lee Poynter, you are a beautiful, smart, talented and incredible human being, and are one of the most brave and strongest people I ave ever had the chance to idolise and appreciate

Love Lexi xx
