Mummy, I Want To Be A Princess

Well this week has been rather busy so i thought i would have a bit of a lazy Sunday diary post, possibly a regular feature? maybe.
"Mummy, i want to be a princess" I'm sure these words have escaped every girls lips at some point when their favourite Disney princess waltzed across the screen in a flowing gown with her prince by her side. I always joked about it with friends but in the back of my mind i seceretly wished it would come true. I'm currently in year 11 and that means i have to start thinking about my A Level options. I am generally known for being indecisive which really doesn't help the situation but i have whittled my options down to French, English Literature, Biology and Music...a nice random range of subjects but i'm still unsure as to what i plan to do in the future.
The careers that i have considered pursuing are creative yet intellectually challenging at the same time; i certainly don't want a job where i'm sat at a computer surrounded by four white walls everyday. Only a few months ago i was contemplating going into the fashion and textiles industry and becoming a costume designer for film and theatre but as i have been doing my GCSE Textiles course for over a year now, i have come to the conclusion that it isn't for me. I underestimated how much work goes behind putting together a garment and have become uninterested in the fabric knowledge needed. However, i would love to be a part of the music industry and i've thought numerous times about possibly exploring music journalism or working in the events and production side of creating a show, this would combine two of my chosen options perfectly. Alternatively, i am fascinated with the science behind the complexity of the human body and how we work so i wouldn't mind studying this further as i have also considered teaching science. Money-wise, obviously i would love a well paid job but i think that it's much more important to be doing  something you love rather than to be solely focused on the paycheck. If i had an average paid job but it allowed me to be constantly introduced to beautiful places, interesting people and amazing new experiences then i can honestly say that it wouldn't bother me.
Overall, a career that allows me to explore the wonderful world we live in and meet new people everyday whilst challenging myself to learn would be perfect.

Here's a lovely John Lennon quote to end this oddly helpful little post:
When I was five years old, my mother told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up. I wrote down 'happy'.
They told me i didn't understand the assignment and i told them they didn't understand life.

  1. I love the John Lennon quote, so very true. You sound like you have your head screwed on, I wish I did at your age!x

  2. Gosh your blog is absolutely beautiful.

  3. when I was little I used to say to my mum that I wanted to be a supermarket cashier haha :)

  4. You can do anything you put your mind to! Keep your head screwed on and you'll go far, in whatever you do!! Don't be scared to make decisions , sometimes those decisions can lead to something even better!! Use your head but follow ya heart too! :) G <3

  5. Oh gosh that quote is so cute!

    I remember finding it impossible to choose what A-Level subjects I wanted to take and I made such a huge mistake with 3 out of 4 of them! But they have worked out well as I only have 1 exam next year and one of them is really easy and laid back even if I don't enjoy it :) So positives will always come out of the negatives!

    Jazz xo

  6. Hah, it's the same for me with GCSE Textiles at the minute! And I can't decide which A levels to do >.< and I love the "the world is a book" picture, verreh nice (: Really sweet post (: ♥
