Another act of kindness….

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

Every year, people lose their homes. And most end up on the streets. This has become a crisis.

You see, when I first started college, I noticed that was quite a few homeless people on the streets. Either sleeping or wandering the town. Hoping…praying for some kind of miracle.

It made me realize how lucky I really am. To have a roof over my head, to be able to eat and drink whenever and whatever I want. To have people (Family & Friends) there during rough times. To have a warm bed to sleep in at night. To have a home.

I couldn’t imagine what it’s like to live on the streets. Especially during Sumner and Winter. So everyday, I donate some of my loose chain to the homeless.

Then I met a man called Patrick. I see him everyday by the train station. He is a really lovely man! He told me his story and I wanted to help him. So I bought a sandwich, bottle of water and a chocolate bar and gave them to him.

The smile I got was worth it. To know that I probably made his day, made me feel good as a person. Knowing that I helped, made me feel proud…

Moral of the story: Be greatful for what you have. Because while your reading this, there are loads of people on the streets wishing to be in your shoes. And a simple act of kindness like buying them lunch or a drink, especially in the cold season, could help them a lot…and go a long way.

See ya!

It’s started….

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

Halloween is now officially over, which means….DUH.DUH.DUHHH.

IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME!!

It’s not even the 1st December and already shops have Christmas items for sale and Christmas adverts are being shown on T.V! I’m not gonna lie, I’ve already started my Christmas shopping…well..I started 2 months ago.. XD.

But hey! It doesn’t hurt to start early. That way, you’ll be all set for Christmas and won’t be rushing around for last minute prezzies! Believe me, I learnt my lesson from last year XD.

Anyway, I’m all for Christmas! Just like Halloween, I like to go all out.

Decorations are a must. Such as the Christmas tree, tinsel, paperchains, colourful lights…. It’s all so exciting!!

It’s one of my favourite times of year. And I believe that once all the Christmas stuff is released in stores, it is officially time for Christmas. But I have some friends who believe that Christmas doesn’t officially begin until December 1st.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m back!

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I sincerely apologize for being away for so long. It’s been about… 2 months? Maybe longer? Either way, I really am sorry for not posting in such a while. You see, I’ve been having a bit of a tough time. In the space of 2 months, I broke up with my boyfriend, the day after my nan was taken into hospital and everything became a complete mess as I started to go down hill with my mental health.

Then on the 11th October, my nan sadly lost her battle with Lung Cancer and passed away peacefully in her sleep.

For me and my family, it was traumatic because everyday we went to see her in hospital and each time she was either getting better or worse. For example, one day she’d be bad and the next day, she would be better.

Either way, I can’t help but feel a little guilty, because the day before she passed, I promised I’d make her some rice pudding and bring it in the next day. But unfortunately, she never got to taste it. I also made her a pillow with her initials on it that she never got to see…

But I think what hit me the most was seeing my mum and grandad cry for the first time ever and also realizing that I was never gonna see or hear from her again.

These kind of things hit you so hard that you just don’t know what to do or how to react! And as much as I’ve wanted to just bawl my eyes out every chance I’ve got, I’ve tried to stay strong for my mum because I don’t want her to be constantly reminded.

My nan’s funeral is less than a week away, and I’ve channelled my thoughts and emotions through poems and a song I wrote for her the day before she past (which she also didn’t get to hear).

To make It up to her, I’m going to be reading my poem out at her funeral. So then she’ll finally be able to hear it. And as for the song, I plan to finish it and record it. So then I’ll be able to say “I did it nan”.

As much as we hate it, these things happen and there’s nothing we can do about it. It’s part of life and we need to accept that. And if you are reading this and have lost someone dear to you then I want you to know that your not alone. And that the ones that depart from us are not gone. They walk beside us everyday.

I send my love,

Emmimori X

Purple rain was my nan’s favourite song… This is for you nan xx❤
