Midnight Storm Ramblings
It's Wednesday night and I have no blog posts scheduled for this week at all, nor do I have any good post ideas. So I thought I would have a random little out of the blue chatty post tonight! Sometimes I think I am starting to get so bogged down with getting my blog to be the best it can be, thinking about what other people would want to see and wanting to put only the very best of my blog post ideas up. Essentially, I am striving towards 'perfection' or getting my blog to be as professional as possible.
Tonight, I'm like naaahhh to all of that. At the end of the day this blog is mine and no one elses, mine to do whatever I want with, even if that includes filling it with post midnight nonsensical ramblings. After all, I think when I'm 30 I will quite enjoy getting a glimpse back in to the mind of the 21-year old me.
It's extremely windy outside. The storm, which I think they've called Rachel is hurling outside my window. I never understand why they give storms such sweet female names, it really doesn't suit them. I would call this storm Hugh or Jeremy. Nevertheless, it's lovely to be inside in the warmth listening to it roar. I'm sitting in my bed with my laptop all snuggled up. Well that's kind of a lie, my room is pretty cold so my top half is baltic whilst my bottom half which is laying on my electric blanking is toasty.
I really hope the electricity doesn't go, because my laptop battery is almost dead. You would think I'd have charged it all night but nope, of course I didn't! I love how Ireland gets so excited whenever our weather gets a little bit out of the ordinary. I mean, in comparison to hurricanes which happen regularly in some parts of the world, this is nothing! But it still makes headline news. We're all cautioned to not leave our house unless we absolutely have to and most of the schools around here are closed tomorrow, in preparation for the worst (there will be trees down and the electricity gone) I sometimes wonder about the fuss we would make if we got earthquakes or proper full on hurricanes haha.
On another note, is it sad that I got in to bed without taking my make-up off because I was still snap chatting people? Haha oh God that is really sad isn't it. I'm almost a bit embarrassed to say that but hey I'm honest! I haven't worn eye-liner in ages and I have no idea why, it works wonders! I've generally been wearing make-up a lot less and when I do it's the minimum so whenever I do go 'all out' on occasion I am always surprised by the miracles it can perform!
Speaking of wearing less make-up, I've also been drinking a lot less fizzy drinks and replacing them with water. I have to say my skin has seen an improvement, which is great because I have acne that just won't seem to shift. I'm thinking about cutting dairy from my diet to see if it would help but God, is life without cheese really worth living?
Anyways, I better switch the laptop off and try get some sleep. Sorry about the extremely random post. It wasn't planned, I just wrote out my train of thoughts!
I hope you've all been having a great week.
I'm really enjoying discovering new blogs at the moment so if you write a blog you think I might not have read, leave you link below!
