New here?

Hiya new person.

*waves frantically

Welcome to my warm, fuzzy, safe space of the internet (more commonly known as my blog).

So who am I?

Well I can sum that up in one simple sentence.

I'm a hyperactive oddball.

That's pretty much it. 

I'm just some overly enthusiastic girl who wants to change the world.

I absolutely love writing and art.

Bit of an animal lover, especially seals and kittens *squeals, not being able to handle overload of cuteness

I'm a child of God.

I'm a fighter and 100% pro-recovery.

My blog is my safe space, it's a place for rants, sharing my struggles on my journey of recovery, it's a place for poor spelling and punctuation, it's a place to share my small successes and be real about life. My blog isn't perfect, but it's mine.

In person I might not be the most sociable but online is a different story and like working along side others. I love it when people comment even if it's just to say hi, so don't be a stranger. Everyone is welcome here, make yourself at home. If you ever want to work with me on anything pop me an email and say hello using the contact me form on the next page. Look forward to hearing off you!

So follow, subscribe if you like and come join the family of Hyperactive Oddballs!

Keep on smiling,

Hiya all.

It's been a while since my last post hasn't it?

A lot has been happening in these past moths My life has taken a roller-coaster of a journey. One full of pain and excitement, love, self acceptance, hard conclusions and fear, lot of fear, it's been quite something.

During this time it might look like I've taken a break from blogging and in some ways this is true, I've taken a break from Acting Natural, but I've been blogging more than ever before.

So today I'd like to introduce you to Lost In The Story.

This is my main blog and is the reason I haven't posted in several moths, I've moved sites.

So why have I done this?

Reason one being that as a blogger I've started to expand and grow. I love Bloggers simplicity but as I started to write more I wished for more control of my blog and the only way I could do that was to move platforms. It's been a bit hard learning a much more complex system but I'm loving it.

I've also changed …

Growing up

Now that we've safely stumbled into May it is time for my college course to be coming to an end. My friends are off to start the next chapter of their lives at Uni, some are going to spend a year in full time work and others are taking a gap year to get a deeper understanding of how the world works.

As for me?

I have no idea what I'm doing next.

Sure I have plans and fall back options just encase I don't find something better to do, but realistically I don't know what I want to do.

University is out of the question as I'm not confident enough in my future to get myself into thousands of pounds of debt, I'm not really in a position to pay the several thousand for my discipleship year, nor have I got enough funds to pay for the higher education course that I wanted to do at college. I have got an unconditional offer on a place studying business at my current college for a year, this is just my fall back option though, but I am glad to have it there.

Snap Shots

Not too long ago I got sent a news article. The title was STOP USING INSTAGRAM.

Catchy right?

It was wrote by some people who collected a bunch of research and data to find out what social networking platform was the worst for teenagers and youths mental heath. You can probably guess what their results found judging by it's title.

I didn't necessarily agrees or think very highly of the article as it was aimed at parents to scare them and read to be really bias against any social networking platform going, so for that reason I'm not wanting to share a link to it, but you can look into it if you'd like, it shouldn't be that hard to find. Whilst I didn't agree with the article it was good food for thought.

One of the first few posts I ever wrote on this blog was called Perfection on social media and it was one of my most popular posts for a long time. After reading that article, I think that topic is very much something that I'd like to discus once again.

I a…
