I can’t get to sleep

I gazed through a gap in my curtains, at the silhouettes and twinkling streetlamps.

It was too late to be awake after the weekend I’d had.

My prominant fatigue was a grim reminder for me to go to sleep, yet it kept my brain buzzing with a desperate urge.

I sat upright in bed, writing in a small black notebook as an attempt to relax.

Oh how fustrating it was that my most tired hours were early evening at best.

My youtube channel

Yes, I have a youtube channel (with only 1 video lol).

Before I get into that, sorry for not posting in a while, I was on holiday (which I’m currently making a video about funnily enough).

So basically I made a youtube channel! Well I already had one, which I posted on a couple of times last year, but the videos were all terrible so I deleted them XD. Well since getting a better camera I was excited to start filming again.

Making videos is something I really enjoy. Just putting together small clips and creating something with a certain aesthetic is very satisfying to me. I made a channel to share this and also have somewhere where my videos can be all in 1 place, without taking up storage on my phone.

Well here is my first video, and expect another one very soon.

Thanks for reading.

Art Stuff, episode 1: Doodles

Hello. As you can tell, I’ve decided to create an art series on my blog! I’ve briefly mentioned that I enjoy art, but so far I’ve only posted writing. I was waiting to get a better camera before uploading art but I couldn’t wait any longer so here we go, plus I was inspired by Allison’s Art Lab. So on to the good stuff 😉

There are many reasons why doodling is great. It helps you improve your skills (even the roughest most scruffy sketches help), it helps you get over art block and it’s really fun! I doodle a lot, and I thought I would share some of the random things that come out of it, and maybe give you some inspiration.

I literally filled 2 pages with just daisies. School can be boring… XD

So I hope you enjoyed this post and the abundance of pictures, and maybeeee this inspired you to doodle 🙂 Thanks for reading.

Winter scene

A while ago I was in the school library with a couple of friends, at lunch, to do some creative writing. We each picked a season to write about, and I picked Winter. I know, it’s a bit cliché but I enjoyed doing this tiny prose and so I thought I would post it.

Delicate snowflakes eddyed from the ash sky and melted on her eyelashes. A crown of glistening droplets adorned her baby hairs as she trudged through the snow. Her cheeks and nose were rosy and freckled, her countenance solumn- yet she was content trampling crystalline ice over white hills. Miles of this frozen landscape dipped and rised, with a trail of footprints fading behind the girl.

Hike

Stumbling, panting, aching. My legs and shoulders burned from an excruciating weight. The waves thrashing at my tear gates did not extinguish the fire, but sent billows of potent smoke into the air which choked and blinded me. I heard a twig snap ahead, and peered through the haze to make out the shape of one of my teammates. She turned around rolling her eyes, “Hurry up Flo,” she sighed “we’re almost there.” They were losing their patience so I didn’t ask for a break. Insecurities engulfed my ego, my positivity, exclusion inundated my brain, my countenance.

As you may have guessed, I enjoy writing short pieces. This is a snippet of one I wrote about a recent experience. Hope you enjoyed

Lazy summer evening

Midges hovered in the air as the sun started to set. I thought they looked like dancing fairies. Watching them as I sat, picking grass and carelessly flinging it across the garden, I felt rather languorous. It was a mild summer evening, the sky cesious-grey and made of layers of bunched cotton wool. The blue sky peeking through these clouds ran along the scene in fluffy cracks. The grass was yellowing at this point in the season, yet our raspberry bushes had started to produce ripe incarnadine berries. Like the rest of my family I thoroughly enjoyed indulging in these, they never lasted long. Laying down in the greenery, admiring my surroundings, I was soothed by the dulcet sound of chirping birds. Gazing up at the vast sky I smiled, and decided to go in for the night.

 

I’m trying to improve my writing by practicing a lot. This paragraph is just me attempting to get better, so feel free to give me constructive criticism :)) Thanks for reading.

Answering random questions

I have been off school for the last couple of days and before that it was half term, so I haven’t seen many friends in over a week. It was a lazy half term ok! You know when you get so bored you end up watching a 50 minute documentary about giving birth? Nope just me ok… Basically I need something to do, so I’m going to find some random questions and answer them.

  1. Do you consider eyebrows facial hair? Duh! It’s hair on your face isn’t it? But I wouldn’t refer to them as facial hair, I would refer to them as eyebrows (like if I was talking about shaving my eyebrows I wouldn’t say “I just shaved my facial hair”)
  2. If a bunch of cats jump on top of each other, is it still called a dog pile? What else would you call it? When a bunch of humans jump on top of each other it’s called a dog pile so I’m sure it would be the same with cats, but if a load of cats were in a dog pile I would be too busy laughing and taking pictures to ponder on that strange question anyway.
  3. What came first, the chicken or the egg? The chicken because there is no way for an egg to just appear, but a chicken could come about through evolution. I heard once that chickens are believed to have evolved from dinosaurs but who knowsss. 
  4. If you could have an endless supply of one food, what would it be? THIS IS SO HARD I’M A MASSIVE FOODIE. Um probably fruit salad with blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, melon, mango and watermelon. Specific I know.
  5. Cats or dogs? Cats. I love both but I personally think cats are cuter and less annoying than dogs although I think dogs’ behaviour is cuter (friendlier).
  6. Would you rather be an amazing fashion designer or an amazing chef? Chef, because cooking is more useful for everyday life. Whether you like it or not, at some point you will have to cook for yourself so you might as well learn to do it well. Plus I’m a huge foodie! 
  7. Favourite seasons in order and why? My favourite season is Spring because I love seeing plants bloom and the weather is warm but not hot. Then it’s Autumn because the trees are beautiful, and the weather can be warm and can be cold but it’s not too much of either. Also Autumn is when school starts so it symbolises new beginnings to me. Then it’s Summer because I get ridiculously hot ridiculously quickly, so it can be completely unbearable to do anything (school in Summer = 4 showers a day). If I wasn’t naturally hot-blooded it might be my favourite season. Last of all it’s Winter, which I can’t think of many good things to say about. It’s miserable and mild and it never snows it just rains where I live. The only thing I can tolerate about it is Christmas, but for the last couple of years I haven’t felt the Christmas spirit so I feel like I’ve passed the age. I know it’s completely tragic 😦
  8. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? I know this is boring but I’d stay where I am. It’s a beautiful and safe area with lots of culture, and there is city and countryside. Despite this I do want to travel around, I just couldn’t tolerate living anywhere hotter than England. Maybe I’d live in America though, New York would be cool but I would miss nature after a while.
  9. Sweet or savoury? Savoury overall but my sweet tooth has increased recently.
  10. Finally: Would you rather find an amazing band/artist or an amazing youtuber? Probably youtuber. I get so much inspo from youtube but there’s no youtubers that I really like, just a selection of random videos that inspire me, so it would be really cool to have someone that regularly posts good content. Having said that, being someone with a very meticulous music taste, it’s extremely rare (no joke, like once every 5 years rare) for me to find a band/artist I like. ‘My music’ consists of a sporadic selection of songs, no 2 songs written by the same people, so finding an amazing band would be like winning the lottery, kind of.

Well thanks for reading this strange post, if anyone is.

Hello

Hello, my name is Flo and I decided to start a blog. I’ve been blogging for a while, well keeping a blog up for a few months then deleting it. It started when I was in year 5 at the age of 9, after my teacher introduced the class to blogging and the 100 Word Challenge. I loved every minute of it, having always enjoyed creative writing, and so decided to start a blog. It’s been so long I can’t remember what I posted, but I think the fact that I named it ‘Bubble Cool Epic Me’ says it a lot. Anyway, then I made about 5 more blogs, neglected them and stopped blogging for a while. The next blog that I remember creating was made 2 years ago. It was my attempt of trying to be like a *tumblr* blogging beauty guru (the 2015 ones) with various posts on diys, life hacks ect. The last few posts were pathetic attempts at trying to keep the blog somewhat active, and you can really tell. Honestly, the whole ‘beauty guru’ thing just wasn’t me so I found myself running out of ideas really quickly and posting something completely random, like ’26 annoying things my cat does’. I even ended up making a post about how I was going to start blogging again and make it more me, then only uploaded one more post which was my last. This blog is still up, despite the cringe, because of  the nostalgia. https://florenceelizabeauty.wordpress.com/ Anyway, I thought it was time to try blogging again, as I am always looking for creative outlets and I really enjoy writing. Hopefully my habitual procrastination won’t get the best of me, and this blog will be active for a while. I will post my creative writing, art and other random shit on here, I hope you enjoy.
