The Chronicle

Thoughts. Wishes.


Hi Everyone, I hope you are all well today regardless of this unpredictable weather. I was subjected to a torrential downpour earlier so I took refuge in Costa for an hour or two with my friend Amy. A few hours later the sun was out to play again but typically as I was about to get off the bus to walk home. It rained. Heavy. And my Primarni umbrella couldn't cope. *sob* :(

'The Chronicle' is now a frequent feature of 'goodgollymisshollie'. It is more of a personal post surrounding things that I am thinking about, things that I have done and things that I hope for. I figured it would be a nice way to deter from the beauty and fashion side of things on this blog and a chance for you to get to know me a little better.

♥ Off The Radar.
I have no idea what has happened of late but I always seem to be 'catching up' with my nearest and dearest friends instead of always in the immediate know of what's happening in their lives. Last week this came to a head when I was feeling really down in the dumps with myself and I decided to text them all telling them how much I missed them. In result of this they all had been feeling the same way! So my friend Ben (my Stanford Blatch) and I had a movie night complete with chocolate fondu and marshmallows YUM! Rani and I had a girlie afternoon doing our nails and drinking tea that was until I put two spoons full of salt in my cup instead of sugar. OOPS. Charlotte called me and we had a really nice chat on the phone, I hopefully will be seeing her next week. And my best friend Amy (in the picture above) and I went all out shopping. It was a such a funny day I really enjoyed seeing her we always have such a giggle together we're like two peas in a pod!

♥ Mr Motivator
Although I am amidst chronic exam season I only have one exam remaining. Psychology. and I have been the least bit motivated. I don't know what's wrong with me. I am not naturally academic and I have to work my socks off to attain the grades I get. In January I was all for it and that was way back when I actually had a life! Now, I pretty much have nothing to do during my study leave period and I just don't seem to be able to knuckle down and get some revision done. The truth is I don't actually know how to revise? I re write my notes and condense them but it's not always the best way. I'm really struggling of late to kick my bum into gear to revise and with one week remaining till the exam, things are not looking so great!

♥ That's Money Honey
My purse must be collecting mothballs it has been that long since any money I earn has been put in there to be saved. I seriously am beginning to believe I have problem being an impulse spender. I get paid weekly, cash in hand. BEAUTIFUL. I finish work at 5 o'clock and what do I do, head straight into the shopping centre round the corner and spend it ALL. I don't have any money for the week ahead then! It's ridiculous. I think I need to set a goal and to save save save till I reach it. I might customise an old shoebox or something with images of products and clothes on my 'wish list' so i'm more inclined to save!
