This morning I woke up later than I thought I would. Not that much later, about 8.30. Fifteen minuets later, I receive a snapchat. A Snapchat from Becca saying she’s off to Jesus Culture. I am so excited for them because I imagine its going to be awesome but I’m sad I’m not going. Peta, I can’t wait to read your blog post about it!!
So once Rachael got up we cycled to Asda on a doughnut hunt for going to the garden. We found some.. and also came out of the shop with Yum yums and fruit too! I’ll show you some of the pictures I took 🙂
Pretty right? 🙂
My school has started a Scripture Union group. There is always a worry that not many people will turn up to these kind of things, especially when its in our lunch break. Saying this, I’m the one who does her homework in her lunch break so I had no problem with attending 😀 It was only the second week so it has been two others and me that have been there both times and then a couple others so we’ll see who will come consistently 🙂 Its really fun because at school, most of your friends aren’t Christians and Scripture Union allows you to meet at least some others who share the same faith.
Anyway, the point of this post was actually to talk about the lyrics to a song one of the leaders shared with us today. It’s called ‘Raggedy Doll’ by Philippa Hanna.
We can interpretate songs in different ways but I think of us as being the ‘Raggedy Doll’ I love all the lyrics so choosing the best is hard, so listen to the video 😉 But, I love:
“I’ve always wanted a friend like you
Someone I could tell my secrets to
And I would hold you all of the time
Just because you’re mine”
This reminds me that God is our best friend who we can tell all our secrets to. He is someone we can tell everything to. Even our deepest worries, anything. Do you know why? Because nothing surprises God. But we are His and He loves us.
“Cos you were beautifully and wonderfully made
I don’t make mistakes and wouldn’t change a thing”
This reminds me of us. We know that God has made us and He has made us how we are meant to be made. Personally, something I forget is that He didn’t make any mistakes. Sometimes, we don’t feel pretty and we think we should look like something we’re not. You know, God made us wonderfully and he didn’t make any mistakes 🙂
This also refers to what I just said:
“It makes me sad when I hear you say
You wish that you were stitched some other way
Cos you don’t look like the other toys
And you’re not new any more
I wanna take you down from the nursery shelf
And show you love till you love yourself
If you lose a button I will give you mine
Just because you’re mine”
You are beautiful too!;)
For today’s (or technically yesterdays..) blog post, I wanted to share with you this website/app called Pinterest. Many of you have probably heard of it. Peta, I will be amazingly impressed if you have!! Seriously. lol! Anyway, I used to have it but then I sort of drifted away. Yesterday, when I remembered that one of my 2nd cousins has a profile on it and I wanted to check it out I ended up making my own profile. Its SO good!!
If you are not familiar with it, in short, You have a profile where you can search anything from Food to Fashion. From wedding ideas to fitness plans. You can scroll through ideas and inspirations and make your own ‘boards’. These boards are basically folders. You make categories and re-pin pictures that you love in the your categories. For example, I have a Vintage folder. So when I see a pictures relating vintage I re-pin it into my folder. My folders are on my profile and my profile looks so pretty with pictures I love 😀
So, if you have it, comment so I can check out your beautiful pictures 😉 Check out mine here: http://pinterest.com/lisaphoto97/boards/
As you can see, its hard for me to pick favorites 😀 But at least if you don’t have Pinterest you can see some of my re-pins 🙂 But people get a lot of inspiration from this site.. from what to have for dinner to home ideas to where to go on holiday. Its fun 😀
Hope you all have a great day!!

Yesterday, as usual, we went to New Hope. I kind of stopped half way so I’m not sure if this even makes sense. We’ll see 😉
There is so much going on in the world right now… Not that I watch the news. I learn most of the world news from, strangely enough, my German teacher..
The world will be afraid of what is happening. The wars and natural disasters, for example but we know the end of the story. We know that this earth was only meant to be short. Or short compared to eternity. We know the end of the story, we shouldn’t be afraid.
Truthfully, I am kind of afraid. I’m afraid of the persecution and hatred but we know the end of the story. I want to be excited and rejoice. My friends and I say that we will live in a row of houses in heaven lol!!
We must rescue our friends and family.
Revelation: 21 verse 1-4
“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out if heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying ‘Now the dwelling of God I with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.'”
We must trust God. Even though we can’t see him, we must trust him.
God is in charge of everything. Just think, in heaven right now there is a being seated on the throne and he is in charge of everything.
The Bible says rejoice:-)

I have been gone for a couple of days. I have had a lot on and I just didn’t find the time to sit and write to you all. I have noticed that I have homework almost every day which I didn’t have in fourth year. On top of that, I spend a lot of time with my friends. So tonight at almost 10.30 when my eyes are closing on me, I am here to write a blog post.
As you all know, I had a vegetarian week. That week turned almost into 2 weeks. Until tonight, I haven’t ate any meat since last Monday. It was kind of strange because I don’t feel the need to eat it. I find that other foods do me just as good because you get used to not eating meat. I’m not a vegetarian as I think that I do need the Iron that meat gives me. Saying this, I might just randomly have a Vegetarian week here and there. Referring to the way I feel, I don’t feel any different which is good. I haven’t lost any weight or anything which is also good because I am 7 /7.5 stone just now and it wouldn’t be be the best if I lost any more when I need the energy for school.
Secondly, as I said, I spend a lot of time with my friends. Yesterday I went for a cycle with my friend and I took her to a garden that I used to go to when I was younger. Not many people know about it, I don’t think. It is in the town where I live but it’s not noticeable. We both think it’s beautiful. Now, there is a point to what I am saying. A couple of days ago, Rachael, mum and I went to visit an apartment. The reason being, there are electricity pylons right outside our place just now and my mum is always worried about them. I’m not complaining because I like this apartment better. if you live here, its like behind Asda. So, one of the bedrooms has a really pretty view! I think my mum will have that bedroom and I will have the one with the nicer wardrobe lol! I would like the view too but my mum likes that so she can have it. But, what I am most excited about is that it is just a few minutes walk from that garden I was talking about earlier. Which means, I can be a geek and go there before school and read and journal and maybe even bring my guitar because it is so quite and so pretty.

So I am just going to combine ‘Travelling Thursday’ with our first day in Aberdeen. Today I woke up at about 06.00/06.30 and before meeting Sophie I nipped over to buy a Caramel Chai Tea Latte from Costa. My favorite!
The train ride was good. 1, I love travelling which helps but also the mum and daughter that were sitting oposite just kept making me laugh. I don’t even know why:D
So we arrived in Aberdeen at around 11.30 and Samantha met us at the station. First of all we went into Tesco to buy some lunch and then went back to her apartment where I met one of her flat mates and we relaxed and ate lunch.
Now, I have never tasted frozen yogurt. After dinner we went to Union Square to have some and it was sooo delicious! Its safe to say, I will never need to eat again. I’m so full. Its so yummy though:D
On our way out we saw this dinosour. Sophie pointed it out.. I’ll tell you what it was.. When Timmy, Samantha, Sophie and I were little we were mad for ‘The Land Before Time’ so Sophie got a picture with Little Foot (the main character). Yes, we still remember their names haha!!
After the wonderful, eventful day was over we came home to relax. Feet sore and tired we made tea and watched ‘The Blind Side’. Such a good movie!!
Time for bed, Goodnight
Yesterday, I spent the day with my friend Rachael. Now, being the same size of clothes definitely has it’s advantages! Rachael was going to give away or sell some of her clothes and I took a sneaky peak and me being me, found something I like. You all the the voice “Rachaeeeeeel (High pitched voice) you know how… your giving these away anyway, fancy giving these couple to me?” lol!! And the kindness of her said yes and I came home with a few pieces of Vintage. Is vintage when it is second hand? I just like the word lol!! And the look of Vintage bedrooms. *hint* dressing table *hint* 😀
So anyway, I’ll just go ahead and show you the beauties 😀
Guess my favorite……….

Somewhere I have always wanted to go is America. I don’t know why. I guess I just imagine it to be beautiful. I know, other places are beautiful too but I just want to see it. Maybe it is all the movies that are made in America or maybe it’s the people. Either way, I would love to visit. I also think that it would be a cool place to visit with friends.
My friend and I already made a plan 😀 We’re going to go on a America tour. Whether it happens or not, I don’t know 😀 So, now Becca can also drive we have another driver haha! The 2 places that I would most like to visit are California and New York. I also really want to go to I HOP one day too! I would love to study there too but it’s free here and costs a tun over there so I’m not sure how that is going to work out 😀

For this first post the very first idea that came into mind was Vintage. I’ve always wanted and imagined my bedroom one day and it always looks like a Modern kind of vintage. Do you know what I mean? White furniture but still a bit older looking, a white curving dressing table with a mirror, roses in my bedroom, hearts on the walls and vintage photo frames. Let me give you some ideas 🙂
Is it just wishful thinking? It’s so pretty though!
