DRAKE LIVE: BOY MEETS WORLD TOUR

31 January 2017


I think I am going to go as far as to say that Drake live last night at the O2 Arena in London, was the best concert I've been to. The reason being, out of the tens of thousands of people there, every single person seemed to be having fun; ESPECIALLY ME.

My friend Siobhan and I did have a bit of trouble getting to the O2 because the satnav took us through the very centre of London for some reason which was not fun! Although, we did see all the sights like the London Eye and the Tower of London. Great. However, it was all worth it in the end because Drake said he was going to deliver and it is safe to say that he was not lying.


Drake's performance was quite a spectacle due to all of the artist he surprised the audience with by inviting them onto the stage with him. These artist include Section Boyz, Giggs and Kyla. I was hoping that Rihanna would make an appearance but he did say she was the queen of everything so I guess there's hope for me and my dream that they will get married one day.


If all of this wasn't cool enough already, there were fireworks and a giant sun. My top tips for going to a Drake concert or any concert is try and learn the words to songs before you go because it was so much more fun when songs we knew were played. Luckily there were only one or two that we didn't know the words to but having said that, it would still be fun even if you didn't know the songs just because of the atmosphere.

Thank you so much for reading and I'd love to hear about any of your concert experiences :)

PASSING MY DRIVING TEST

18 January 2017

I had been learning to drive for 9 months before passing last Tuesday and I honestly thought that it would never happen. I have never been confident in doing practical things because I have such bad coordination like when I went skiing, I was so bad at it (I still loved it though which was the main thing). This is why it took me 9 months to pass, some people take 3 months, others take over a year; I really don't think it matters because everyone is ready to drive and take a driving test at different times and you're ultimately achieving the same goal, it doesn't matter how long it takes.

On Friday I also bought my first car which is a red ford fiesta that I love! At first, I was petrified of driving it because it felt so different to driving my instructor's car but after a few days I got used to it, I guess a car is a car. Going to college is now easier because the bus takes an hour and ten minutes where as driving takes 20 minutes, you know what that means... LONGER LIE INS FOR ME.
If anyone is having driving lessons or if you're going to have them, keep going with them because it is rewarding to pass your test. Also, if I can do it, you can do it. Thank you for reading :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR

2 January 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope everyone had an amazing 2016 and will have an even better 2017. I don't really have any New Year's resolutions because they only normally last a few weeks and if you want to better yourself, you can do that any time of the year I suppose; you don't have to wait until the new year. However, I do have goals for this year which are:
  1. Get the A level grades I need for university
  2. Start university
  3. Pass my driving test
  4. Get a car
  5. Make progress with my blog
My plans for this year also include seeing Drake, Two Door Cinema Club and Circa Waves live. I had so much fun seeing Catfish and the Bottlemen, Bring Me The Horizon, Bastille, The Hunna and The Neighbourhood in 2016 which is why I have booked more gigs and concerts for 2017 and I will probably book more. I am really hoping that Arctic Monkeys come back and do a tour this year as I've heard rumours that they are writing music together. My goal for forever is always going to be seeing Lana Del Rey live too as she is my favourite artist and it would just be so amazing.

In 2017 I will also be turning 18, leaving college and hopefully moving out to go to uni so there are going to be so many changes; these are good changes though. I am also starting a scrap book this year so that I can document all the good things to happen in 2017. Although there are so many things to look forward to in 2017, we can't forget about 2016. Here are some of my highlights:
  1. Learning to drive
  2. Disneyland Paris
  3. Holiday to Corfu
  4. Concerts earlier mentioned
  5. Meeting Adam
  6. Days out to Bath, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, London etc.
  7. Newcastle horse races
  8. Thorpe Park/Fright Night
  9. Parties
  10. Christmas
Let me know what your highlights of 2016 were and your plans for 2017. Thank you for reading :)
