Thunder and Lightning (GIFS Contain flashing images)

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

Summer is finally here and it sure is hot! One of my favorite things about Summer, is the fashion and how most nights you spend on a beach or in your back garden enjoying a BBQ with the ones you care about. But what I love most is the weather. Not just the warmth and sunshine… What I love are the thunder storms!

During the season of Summer, thunder storms are a lot more frequent and scary, making them a lot more exciting! When ever there’s word of a thunder storm coming our way, me and my family will get really excited about it and watch it. No matter what time it is XD. It’s so interesting to watch and is really thrilling!

Especially when your about to sleep and you can hear the thunder, rain and see the flashing of the lightning through your bedroom window. It’s sooo relaxing.

I recently downloaded an app on my phone called Blitzortung Lightning Monitor. It’s really useful! Especially when your a fellow storm lover like me and want to know when the next storm comes around.

(See the squares? They represent the storm. The white squares represent the direction and the beginning of a new strike. To put it simply: White=New strikes Red= Old strikes)

I love to look at the app because it allows you to see other parts of the world too and see what storm is brewing near them! They also have a website you can go on phone or laptop. You can check it out here.

Recently we had a massive storm that was heading our way and was coming from France. Me and my sister were watching it slowly travel across the sea towards us and were getting so excited about it XD. We literally monitored its every move and when it arrived, it turned nasty. I was up until 2am listening to the storm but I couldn’t of cared less! I’m just glad I didn’t have school the next day otherwise I would of missed the storm! XD

A dream of mine, is to go to America and storm chase! I’d love to see a tornado live and in action! I have done since I was a kid! XD

What about you? Are you a lover of storms? Let me know! 🙂

See ya!

 

Life of a K-pop fan.

Greetings! Welcome to my blog!

Being a K-pop fan is a blessing. There’s no doubt about that! You have different groups to support with so much talent to offer, incredibly good looking people to bias, debuts and so much MERCHANDISE. In some way’s it’s almost like a dream where you can’t see yourself with out it.

But then, it is sometimes a nightmare. Fan wars, scandals, disbandment’s… it can be difficult at times.

So today I am writing a post about ‘Life of a K-pop fan’, because I’m sure quite a few people can agree with me with some of the things I list, and I also want soon-to-be K-pop fans to know what it’s like to be a fan in the K-pop community.

1- Fan Wars

Fan war’s often occur. Especially after an award ceremony or a debut. Why do they happen? I’m not really sure. But what I do know is that sometimes it will be over a debut where a group has a similar concept or choreography to another group. When your fandom gets caught up in a fan war, hold on to your heads! There are even times when it get’s extremely nasty. When I say nasty, I mean involving the dead. Yeah. You read that correctly. Here’s an example:

This was shortly after the leaving of Zayn from 1D and the death of EunB (R.I.P angel) ‘Sad’ doesn’t even begin to describe.

 

2- Scandals

When your bias or bias group are caught up in a scandal, it gets pretty intense. No one knows the truth, but all you can do is pray and believe that it’s not true! Some scandals can even ruin an idol’s career! That’s how bad they are!

3- Disbandments

I know what it’s like to have a group you love disband. And let me tell you this…it isn’t nice. Especially when it’s the group that got you into K-pop in the first place. But you have to remember, it’s probably for the good and all good things have an end.

4- Most thing’s remind you of K-pop.

No matter where I go, there will always be something that reminds me of K-pop. For example: When I was in science, we were learning about the meanings of endothermic and exothermic…(you already know where I’m going with this XD)

When I think of Exothermic, I think of:

Exothermic- gives off heat… how does that relate to EXO? Not only the name but when I think of EXO, I associate them as ‘Hot’. Therefore giving off heat. Thank you EXO for getting me a passing grade in Science XD

Other People:

See what I mean?

5- Merchandise

When you start getting into the community, you notice that there is merchandise you can can purchase. But BEWARE! Once you buy merchandise, you can not stop! When it’s there, you want it. You want to show your support for your idols. But seriously. Be careful XD

6- Concerts

By god. When your bias is having a concert near you, it’s like a gift from god. But CAUTION. If you want tickets, get them as soon as they are available because 9 times out of ten, they sell out with minutes. That’s how popular K-pop really is.

Image result for kpop concertImage result for kpop concertImage result for kpop concert

Trust me, K-pop concerts are SO worth it! The vibe you get is indescribable! If there was a word that had the meaning of amazing, extraordinary and inspiring, I would use it to describe the vibe XD

7- Non-K-pop fans

Sometimes non-K-pop fan’s don’t understand. They either disrespect you for liking another culture, tease you for listening to something that’s different and over react. By that, I mean racism. I often get it for liking K-pop, but you know what? I couldn’t care less about what others think. If I want to listen to K-pop then I will. I don’t need others input about what I can and can’t like. And you shouldn’t worry either 🙂

8- Meeting your bias

THERE IS NOT A WORD TO DESCRIBE THIS FEELING. There really isn’t. When you meet your bias…..you die a little inside because it doesn’t seem real. It’s something you dream about and fantasize. You practice how you will act, but then when the time comes, your mind goes blank and you just don’t know what to do!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and can sorta relate XD. Please don’t feel ashamed for liking something that’s different. Your only being culturally diverse and that means a lot. It’s also what makes you, YOU! So enjoy it!~

See ya!

SISTAR Disbandment

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

This is the 2nd group disbandment post I have written this week, and at the moment I am praying I don’t have to write another for the rest of the year 😥

I’m not sure if you guys have heard, but it is indeed true that SISTAR are disbanding and I am so sad about it. SISTAR was one of the first K-POP girl groups I ever got into and I can’t believe that they are splitting!

After 7 long years they have decided to split, and will be releasing their last album on the 31st May. As a farewell, each member has written a personalised letter to STAR1’s.

Hyolyn:

To the STAR1s that have always loved and supported SISTAR.
Hello, it’s SISTAR’s leader Hyorin. It’s already been 7 years since SISTAR debuted. The time I spent as SISTAR’s Hyorin along with SISTAR and my fans was a precious time that I wouldn’t change for anything else. They were like a dream. Now, the SISTAR members will be going our own ways for our 2nd life. I want to sincerely thank our fans that let us know how happy and lucky we were to sing, to go on stage, to be loved, and to love others. We are putting behind a big sadness and supporting each other’s dreams, and will be working our best to grow in our own areas. The members and STAR1, who I love, will remain forever in my heart. STAR1 are precious and have always given me abundant love and strength even though I was lacking. Thank you with all my heart. I love you..

Bora:

STAR1, hello, it’s SISTAR’s Bora.

I told fans every year that we should be happy, and I hope that you were all happy for the seven years you spent with us. The time that I spent with STAR1 and SISTAR members was happy and precious. I think that I couldn’t show my sincerity to as much as people as I tried to, and my disappointment at not being able to do the best for you as SISTAR gets bigger. When fans told me they got strength from my brightness, I got stronger. I won’t forget that and keep getting stronger.

Even as I write this, I have so many memories. Now, the members have agreed to support our own road. But it’s not that we won’t get to see you again, so I’ll work to be a good Yoon Bo Ra from now on. All the STAR1 that loved SISTAR and Bora, I was thankful and happy you were with us. Let’s keep being happy. I love you ^^

Soyou:

It’s already been 7 years. I think I was happier during happy times and had it better during hard times because of the members and STAR1 that were always next to me. When I look back, I’m sad and sorry that I couldn’t spend that much time with our fans. No matter what stage I stand on from now on, I won’t ever forget this feeling I have for the members and our fans. I love you, I’m sorry, and thank you. I’ll let you hear good music. Let’s all be happy until the last moment.

Dasom:

To STAR1.
Hello everyone, it’s Dasom. It’s been a while.
I have a lot I want to tell you, but I’m worried about what to start with.
It’s been 7 years since SISTAR debuted. I want to first thank everyone who have always supported us and loved us during this long period.
I think I was able to happily finish the 7 years with you, when it could have been hard. And it was also motivation for all of us to grow.
It’s very sad, but SISTAR has decided to go our separate ways after this album is finished. We received so much love as SISTAR, and we want to give it back bit by bit by ourselves from now on. I will try to communicate more with fans from now on. Please support us. Thank you.

I really hope that the girls do well in the paths they have chosen. And I hope they find happiness in the decisions they will make from now on. Their talents will not be forgotten and I wish them luck!

Good luck Girls!

HISTORY Disbandment

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I’m sure quite a few of you have already heard the news about HISTORY…. and to be honest…I am really sad about it…:'(

I went to see HISTORY live in London, and I also had the pleasure to meet them. It was one of the best nights I’ve ever experienced! They were all so professional and tried their best to speak English to us. Their efforts were greatly rewarded by the screaming fans who were shouting for an encore XD

Their 4 years together were indeed great ones. And it’s a shame to see such a talented group with so much more to offer, disband. But I’m sure they had their reasons and I respect that. I hope that they all stay friends and do well with whatever life throws at them XD

(Apologies for the blur, I was shaking XD)

(I’m so so grateful that I had this opportunity! And I will never forget it! Even if my sister got to stand next to my bias. I still had the upper hand XD)

When It was time to leave, the members were bowing to the fans and the fans were waving and saying goodbye and then…..DUN DUN DUNNNNN Kyungil turned to me and bowed! I literally died inside. I acted upon instinct and bowed back, unsure of what to do. And he looked at me and just stared as I walked away…..it was like I was in an anime or a fanfiction or something.  (I hope I didn’t do anything wrong! XD)

I watch so much k-drama’s that bowing has become a habit to the point that I will do a small bow when I say thank you to someone. (For example: At the shops, when someone holds a door for me, accepting something like a leaflet…XD)

Anyway, like I said before, I hope the members of HISTORY will stay friends and live a happy life! They are all so talented and I hope they do well for many years to come!

GCSE’s

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

  • First off, I’d like to say a big thank you to all my followers and viewers for sticking around and checking out my posts. It really means a lot to me!!

I have to say, it’s been a hectic few months so far and already I feel like migrating to my room for the rest of my life….. but hey-ho! I can’t do that. So instead I’m going to take it one step at a time. (Even though that’s impossible considering all the exams…)

I don’t mean to bring anyone down, but..come on. All you GCSE takers know what I’m on about. How can they expect us to do so well in exams with this new grade system? What on earth does 9-1 mean? It’s just confusing! Not only that, but it’s much more difficult to pass our exams.

Image result for 9 to 1 grade system

( Before it was straightforward…now its like going round the molbury bush with whole numbers and decimals…Yeah. That’s right. There are decimals too.)

It doesn’t just go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5…. No. It goes 1, 1.2, 1.4 etc…..confusing or what?

Okay. Now that my rant is semi-over, I would like to wish everyone taking their GCSE’s a massive:

I know a lot of people are freaking out about the exams, but trust me. You’ll do absolutely fine 🙂

Make sure you get a good night’s rest and eat breakfast every morning. And remember. DON’T STRESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. 🙂 Your going to do well and don’t feel threatened by the new grade system 🙂

Best Wishes!

53 days to make a difference.

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I’m coming towards the end of the days that I wake up in the morning, scramble on my uniform and make a dash for the bus so I’m not late for school. And to be honest, I know for a fact that I’m going to miss those days. Because I know that 1) I’m stuck in the routine and 2) I won’t see three quarters of my class mates ever again. (Sorry to be so depressing….)

So to leave a good impression, I plan to show up to prom, rocking a beautiful dress. But I have a slight problem. I’m STILL uncomfortable with my weight! I’m 15 stone and I’ve recently grown from 5’9 to 5’10. I don’t want to arrive looking like a sack of potatoes.

And I know that the only way that I’m going to lose my potato body, is to work at it by exercising and eating healthy…(Such a big challenge with KFC round the corner..)

My will power must be ON POINT. (Which is really difficult for me because my idea of will power is walking to the fridge and back…XD)

Anyway, between us, I’m a size 16 and I want to fit into a lovely size 14 before prom! Like I said before, In order to do that, I have to work at it. So today, I have done a lovely hour and thirty minutes exercise (I nearly died.) And I am very exhausted. I have also been eating as healthy as I can. I plan to continue to live healthy for the next 53 days. ( The reason it’s 53 days is because my prom is on the 30th June). So wish we luck!

I ‘m going to blog about my results every Sunday. ( I am aware today is not Sunday) And hopefully, I’ll do a few live videos on Facebook and might even do a few to give my YouTube channel a kick start!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post!

See yaaaaaaa!
