HELLO GUYS I HAVE EMERGED FROM THE STUDY HOLE.
MY EXAMS ARE OVER! I AM FULL OF POSITIVE ENERGY ALL OF A SUDDEN NOW THAT MY IMMINENT FUTURE DOES NOT HAVE A MASSIVE BLOCKADE OF MATH IN THE WAY!
THINGS: I am very excited for my giveaway, everything is coming together and I can’t wait to be a happy Santa giving away goodies! I’m so pumped and happy and I want this to be the best giveaway ever.
And also, I suddenly have more wish than ever to eat a plant-based lifestyle. I’ve only realised just how much better I feel whilst filling up on natural deliciousness and it’s so much better for the environment it’s ridiculous. I can’t wait to just stop putting what harms the environment into me and to live a lifestyle that is as cruelty free as possible.
In somewhat related news, last week a lady came to my school to talk and she was a scientist from the US that created a whole biosphere (!!) in the middle of the Arizona Desert, an earth systems science facility. She lived in it for 2 years with a scientific team, just to prove that it’s possible to allow a biosphere to thrive and that it’s possible to live sustainably with no outside contact, and also to prove that what we put out in our biosphere never really goes away—all that waste and pollution stays, and it damages. They grew their own food (wheat, veggies, grain), monitored different parts of the building where they grew mini ecosystems (mini mangroves, rainforests, even a desert and an ocean!) It was honestly such an eye-opening project that I have no idea why isn’t more well known—read about it here and here. (p.s: she also said the only form of sugar they had was bananas in there that they could grow, so they lived on bananas as their only source of sweetener for the 2 years—banana flavored cake for everyone’s birthdays! that was really funny somehow)
AND IT’S ONE MONTH TO MY BIRTHDAY one month till I’m 16 bliddy heck! Let me fill you in on a secret though: I’m already planning my birthday cake, and one word: chocolate.
I have a one week holiday coming up too, and I plan to use that to study (sigh) but also to GET OUT and take more walks and be more active and bake loads! I can’t wait.
Maybe it’s because of post-exam adrenaline but I suddenly feel so happy and hopeful. THIS IS YOUR DAILY REMINDER THAT YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEAN AND I HOPE YOU SMILED LOADS TODAY. Bless you all, lots of hugs and lots of love—tell me how your day has been! x
