Catchy title? Check! Nothing interesting to actually write about? Also check!

Anywho, I spent £2.99 today on something I have slightly become obsessed with. That is.....one of those wordsearch book things you see in shops right inbetween the impossible crossword books and the Sudoku books, (which are also impossible). I have loved wordsearch books ever since I was a young child and my mother bought me one. I was obsessed with that book. Anyway, that book took me years to do and I still never actually finished it. But I still loved it. But year, I got one today and I have so far completed 11 wordsearches. Slightly obsessed. (First stage of understanding you have an addiction is by addmitting you have an addiction).

AALLSSOO, I can't drive yet. I did pass my test but I haven't actually got my car which is starting to really upset me because I really wanna drive now. I got back to college next week..which...I am super excited about. But in the mean time I will have to get buses to college and if I don't get on as a child....that's £4 for a return. (But I might see if I can apply for a bursary which should hopefully cover that costs).

Like I said, I actually have nothing remotely interesting to write about today but I just really wanted to write something. (Also it is proving extreme difficulty to not spell the word 'write' as 'right'...I really can't wait to go back to college).

I am also dearly sorry to inform you that I don't have a 'PhOtO oF tHe DaY' today and that's because I haven't taken any photos. I HAVEN'T EVEN TAKEN ANY SELFIES! I really need to up my game which I will vow down to you guys now and make that promise:

"I Samantha Denby will promise my small group of readers that I will take more photos so my blog is more interesting and so you can look forward to seeing something after you have finished reading and when you're extremely bored of the reading". 

And there you have it, a promise I shall attempt not to break. 

Just in case you guys are wondering, the promise will start from tomorrow because it's half past 9 on the evening and there isn't really much things to take photos of apart from my wordsearch....

7th August 2017

Yesterday was my birthday. I am now the mighty 19 year old with the world at her feet!

Yesterday I had a pretty mediocre birthday. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact I had to work even though it was only a four hour shift! My birthday ritual is to wake up, open cards, go shopping then go for a meal and BOOM that's my birthday over and done with. But nope, yesterday I woke up, had to wait ages to go to work, went to work, came home opened a couple cards and went for a meal. I HATE CHANGE. I still enjoyed it but I honestly hate change so much and all that's happened so far this year is CHANGE.

I have stated numerous times that I have been wanting to change myself like the way I dress, the way I act and think. But I never wanted my surroundings to change and that is all that's happened and now I am so confused with everything. I am trying to adapt to one thing then another thing changes and I am trying to adapt to that change. SO CONFUSING. But hopefully by the end of this week I will be driving, *fingers crossed*. That is the only change I am looking forward to this year! Driving is something I have always dreamed of as a child and now I will be able to ACTUALLY DRIVE. I really hope this cheers me up because recently I have been feeling so under the weather but there is no cause for that?

I have tried to do everything that makes me happy such as rave to my favourite music such as Arctic Monkeys and Linkin Park but NOPE that isn't making me happy. I watched 'Girl Interrupted' with Angelina Jolie in and that was such as a good film but I don't think it was the best film to raise my hopes up in life. But it was still amazing!!

Anywho, I better scadoodle and get a shower I have been procrastinating for like half an hour now. I hope y'all are okie dokie and another blog post should be up shortly, (this time with pictures if I can be bothered). WOO!

life backwards is efil

to whom this concerns: I have developed a very disgusting habit.

A habit that will haunt you.

I have been spelling words backwards intentionally and I just cannot stop.

Basically, since my last blog post I have been a series of awkward situations so in order to try and get myself out of them I have been purposely saying: *random word* backwards is *drow modnar*. It's a very odd habit I know but it has become addictive and I have been using it in every situation possible. It does get quite funny though.

Anyway, CATCH UP TIME WITH DENBY. Me and the boyfriend broke up after almost 3 years. Very heartbreaking but we have decided to stay friends as we both think it's best for each other? I think? We both made mistakes and we was both becoming upset over everything that has happened and it hurts. But that's life I suppose? But we are both trying to be happier people and I am very happy to say that he is very happy at the minute which makes me happy. Yes I miss him to pieces but again, life goes on. We had the best of memories and we are going to gain even better memories!

Also, in regards to my previous post. I went on to fail my first ever driving test. It was very disappointing but I only managed to get 2 faults. One being a minor fault and the other being a major fault. I managed the major fault during a crossword scenario and I was turning right. It was very confusing at the time but I don't mind. I have learnt from my mistake and my next test is in 3 days? I am so nervous because it has cost me a lot of money and I will really kick myself if I fail this one. After that test it has given me a confidence boost because I drove so well and I drove with so much confidence and I have learnt that confidence is KEY! If I could give a tip to those who are also learning to drive: TRUST YOUR FIRST INSTINCT. Don't be scared and be confident with every action. Never doubt yourself because that caused me to fail. VERY ANNOYING!

In good news though my birthday is two weeks today! I am going to be turning 19 which quite frankly is CRAZY! I am growing up so fast and as much as I like it...I am scared. I am scared of growing up in a way. I am just going to spend the next two weeks living life to it's full and just make myself happy and I am going to try SO hard to pass this next driving test!!

So much has happened in the space of a month, I left college, got a new job, broke up with the boyfriend, gained some new friends in a way and there is so much more to happen! One thing I just need to keep telling myself which is TO BE HAPPY and stop beating myself up over stupid things, it gets you nowhere! That advice I am giving to all of you too! No point in being sad and feeling sorry for yourself. JUST GET YOURSELF OUT THERE!

Anyway, I hope all of y'all have a good morning, day or evening! (Even if you are already having a shit day; just remember the sun will shine at some point).

I have so many fears recently. The cause of these fears? My anxiety. The anxiety I never knew I really had but apparently I do...I think. Anyway, I want to talk to someone but it is currently half past 4 in the morning so; I am going to talk to myself about what is stressing myself ou which (if you haven't actually noticed yet), is my fears.

Fear #1: 

Failing my driving test. My driving test is now a week away and I have never worried about something to such extreme in my entire life. This is my first test which makes me even more nervous. I know I can drive and so does my driving instructor but one thing I am really scared of is letting my nerves get the best of me then failing. Failing itself doesn't scare me as much as letting myself down. The only way I am going to pass is if I prove myself wrong and that is what I really want to do. I want to prove myself wrong and anyone who doubts me wrong.

Another thing that worries me with my test is that I won't be having another lesson until the day of my test. I cannot figure out whether or not this is going to be a good thing or a bad thing. I want to say a good thing as the more I drive with my instructor the more likely I begin to mess things up. BUT, I feel as if I need a little bit more practice. Not much, but enough so I can feel 100% about this test and not 99%.

Fear #2: 

I am currently undergoing a series of fears regarding the consumption of food. The reason for this is currently unknown but I am not feeling the need to really eat. However, I do think this is primarily due to my routine dramatically changing. By this I mean the fact that I have left college FOREVER. I am no longer a sixth form student which has made me so happy and stress free. However, I am developing a new form of stress in the sense that I no longer have a routine. I have been trying to create my own form of routine but I have a new job and the hours are fluctuated at the moment since I am new.

Fear #3: 

My ultimate fear at the moment is my boyfriend. Please buckle your seat belts because for this fear I have a lot to get off my chest:

So, me and the boyfriend have been together for almost 3 years. This itself makes me the happiest human being because after 3 years and after anything and everything we are still standing strong. I cannot describe how happy this makes me feel.

However, recently I have had a developing fear and I honestly don't know why. Since I have finished college I have been hanging around with my friends and we all have been on many adventures. So has my boyfriend, he has joined in on the fun and he is enjoying it so much. But, I am a female. I am not saying that all females have anxiety and their own form of jealousy but I have had an overgrowing fear which is combined with jealousy and sickness.

Whenever the boyfriend does something without me, eternally, it crucifies me. I worry about him so much and I want to know where he is and what he is doing. There is nothing wrong with this feeling is there? Anyway, he has been hanging around with a girl, (and his other friends at the same time don't get me wrong), but I am growing a fear inside of me that he is going to lose interest in me. After 3 years he means so much to me and I want him to know that. He is my everything. I have been chasing after him because I love him so much and he makes me so happy. But everytime he isn't with me and he is with someone else I just feel like he doesn't want me there. But before I sound like a crazy girlfriend, I get invited but sometimes it's after I have finished work so I am too tired or I don't join because I don't want to get home at like 2 in the morning. Because of this I panic so much. I want him to smile at me the way he has been doing with everyone else. I want him to smile at me the way he use to when we were first talking. I want him to be happy more than anything and if I can't make him happy like everyone else does then does he even want me?

I will message him and I will be honest with him but I know he is out having fun when really I just want to speak to him properly. Last night I messaged him EXACTLY how I felt. It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders but I didn't get the reply I truly wanted. He said he'll talk to me about it properly but after I sent that message I just knew he was having a laugh with his friends and that he couldn't reply properly. I felt second best. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. I am being so clingy recently. I hate myself for it.

I am the reason for this fear. He reassures me all the time that he loves and that he would never leave me. He tells me what I want to hear. But apparently this isn't enough for my anxiety. It is never enough for me.

Fear #4:

My thoughts.

I am scared of my own thoughts and feelings. I can send myself to a dark place very quickly. This place is horrible. Eternally, this place murders a part of me every time I enter it. As you have previously read my thoughts send me to a horrible place of jealously and anxiety but this goes for everything.

I am extremely sorry for such a depressing blog post especially after so many months of not posting anything. But I just felt like I wanted to get all of this off my chest...again. It is so much easier for me to fully express myself through words non-verbally than it is to do so verbally. But I honestly think no one understands how I feel. I am screaming for help but no one is seeing it apart from one person properly instructing me to go get help elsewhere. I want rid of these stupid thoughts once and for all.

So, Make..UP

So, today's topic is make up! The inspiration for this blog stems from the wonderful BuzzFeed. As you may tell, they are currently running out of ideas as they have basically created a video for every single topic possible in the world. A good example of their most recent ideas comes from their recent video, 'can you float on mashed potato?'. For those who may find this video interesting, don't bother watching it. You can float on mashed potato. Apparently.

Anyway, the vast majority of BuzzFeed's recent videos are related to make-up. Me being the tomboy I am; I don't wear make-up. I have worn it many years ago when I was discovering my 'girly' side and wanted to copy other girls in my school year group but this experience turned out to be humiliating. The comments I was receiving at the time were mainly bad comments. For example, 'oh Sammy why do you look so orange' and 'Sammy why are your eyes so black'. They are only the nice examples. To get to my point, I don't wear make-up. I haven't really felt the need too. I don't like my appearance too much but I don't feel as if I need to cover it up with blusher and foundation. 

I don't understand the purpose of make-up in every day settings. I know so many people who put on so much make-up as part of their EVERYDAY routine. I bet you do it too? I just don't understand. The first thing which baffles me is the price of it. Every time I go shopping with my mum she always looks at the make-up. I have a little browse myself but what puts me off straight away is the price of it all. £7 for a bottle of foundation which is most likely going to last a month. I shall pass on that thank you very much.£7 may not sound like much too you but to me? WOAAAAH. Nope. I would rather spend my money on important necessities such as chocolate why thank you very much. 

I do understand WHY people like to wear make-up. Those who wear make-up and make it PERFECT are artists in my eyes. Looking at people's eyeliner flicks and just witnessing how perfect they are gives me so much satisfaction and I have to say, some people's make-up looks fantastic but too wear it EVERYDAY. WHY? Guys, please help me out here. Please can someone give me an explanation to WHY you wear it everyday. Special occasions or Weekends I can understand but EvErYdAy? 

I honestly don't understand why this bothers me. I think it's more to do with the cost of it all. Watching the BuzzFeed videos were they are all discussing things such as 'Primer' and 'Bronzer' and many other mythical words just baffles me but they must all cost a lot of money. I think everyone is beautiful in their own way. Everyone has that originality about them with or without make-up. Honestly, I believe everyone is unique and I just think make-up can often spoil that a little bit. But anyway, that's your decision and not mine. I have nothing wrong with individual's wearing make-up, I just have a series of thoughts to why you do so. I have already spread my curiosity regarding the cost but it also must be unhealthy for your skin? I suffer with bad skin as it is and I see a lot of young people who suffer with acne who also wear tons of make-up. Fair enough you would like to hide the acne but doesn't it make it any worse? I know this is a strange blog post but recently I have been a very curious individual and I believe I shouldn't keep things to myself anymore. 

Anyway, thank you for reading le' blog post. I must apologise now for any errors in spelling or punctuation. It is currently 23:51 here in Britain which is now way past my bed time. I shall post some more later this weekends my fellow amigos. I have a series of interesting topics I want to cover with you and I promise you they will be very interesting! 

Hope you all have a lovely day/evening/night and stay safe folks! *Love heart emoji with pink sparkles* - IMAGINE IT.
