Religion

Another post with input from my friends. This time, all about their opinions on religion.
Lottie celebrates Christmas and Easter but other than that doesn't know what to believe in. She recognises that religion often causes wars. We can't stop religion and you should be able to believe what you want to.
Lizzy said that you can be who you want and believe what you want as long as your not harming others. You should also respect others. It is your own opinion. She thinks religion is a good thing because it gives you something or someone to look up to and it introduces you to a close community. Religion also teaches you how to behave - many of those teachings being valued in society today.
Emmy doesn't believe in God but she does believe in Kharma and rebirth. She isn't a Buddha though. You can have a mixed view on religion as it is your own opinion.
Charlotte said that everyone should respect people because everyone is different. Charlotte is an atheist but she does beli…

Using calendars

Just a short post today! This is another episode for the organisation series written by Lottie. She decided to write about calendars so here we go...
Using calendars is good because often you are able to hang them up which means they are write in front of you at any time. Often I [Lottie] forget to use my planner as it could be in my bag or tucked away somewhere, but with a calendar hanging in front of you, it's hard to forget.
My calendar is your average calendar. Each day is separate then I have a note section at the bottom, I use sharpies to write on my calendar. You could colour code, but personally I don't.
I think calendars are one of the better ways to organize but it all depends on you and the methods you prefer!
Thx for reading,
Lottie

10 songs

Hi guys. A slightly more cheerful post today hopefully. I'm going to put my music on shuffle and see what songs pop up, writing them down each time.x Lets see what comes up...
 - The first one is Changing by Paloma Faith. I love her. She's such a strong singer and you can really get into the swing of her music. I think Changing is a fairly old song though so I'm not sure what she's like now.
 - Next is Let Her Go by Passenger. I love this song so much. I've completely forgotten about this one for such a long time and listening to it now brings back so many amazing memories. I really want to learn how to play this on the keyboard now! At the moment I'm learning All of Me by John Legend so one thing at a time.x I'm just going to listen to the beautiful lyrics now...
 - The next song that pops up is Track 7. It's from my clarinet grade exam that I'm doing in the summer. It's quite a nice piece. A Minuet and Trio by Mozart. You can probably guess wh…

Some advice...

This time lets skip the intro...
When your sad you have your friends - but not always. Chances are your going to end up in a situation when you start to stare in the mirror wishing you were smaller. When you start to become paranoid about what people say behind your back. When you start to wish you are invisible. You can surround yourself with friends who truly do care and love you. That will help. But it won't fix it. Not always. You need to learn to love yourself. Get up off the ground and fight your corner because you are worth it. You always have been, you always will be. You matter. If not to someone else but to yourself. Because there is no one in the world like you. You don't have to be beautiful and intelligent for others. Be beautiful inside for yourself. I know everyone always sais this but that's because it's true. No matter what happens you will always have you. It is up to you to except who you are and understand that you are the one that needs to plant yo…

Drugs and Alcohol

First of all apologies that I have been missing days but you have to understand that this is expected. I have so much homework nowadays! Also, I'm not going to be doing the 30 day challenge thing anymore as not all of them are entirely suitable for this blog. I will try and blog as often as possible though.x enjoy.
I wasn't originally sure about doing this one. I haven't had much experience with drugs and alcohol other than the stuff they teach. But I decided I would give it a go...
I asked a few of my friends their opinions on the matter and this is what they told me,
 - Lottie thinks that, unless it is useful medicine, drugs should not be used. She also said that alcohol is okay as long as you are careful. Oh and also, don' drink and drive!
 - Lizzy said that you shouldn't take drugs and drink too much alcohol as it is harmful to you and others. It can effect you in a serious way. For example, if you drink too much you can sometimes forget what you have said or d…

In 10 years time...

So I've already managed to miss two days of blogging. Ooops. I'm not too upset about it but I am hoping I'll get into the swing of things. The next challenge on the list is to write about were you'd like to be in 10 years but first I'd just like to mention a few things.
1. I'm listening to Disney songs and there still really cool! Don't judge.xx
2. I am trying to set up an agony aunt page. You have probably noticed that most of my posts end up moving towards the advice side of things and I would really like to set this up. If you want some advice, email frecklesnstars@gmail.com. Make sure to change names and things so people don't recognise you.x
3.Can I say something crazy?
Will you marry me?
Can I say something crazier?
Yes!!
(from for the first time in forever in Frozen)
On with the post...
So I'm only 13 a the moment, which would make me 23 in 10 years. I can do maths people.x I think at that point I still want to be experimenting and growing up…

30 day blog challenge!!-being single.x

Hi guys! So I decided that i wanted to commit to my blog that little bit more.I feel like I have barely posted on here and those posts have been a bit stiff. It's time to let loose!! Enter... the 30 day blog challenge! Things like this are all over pinterest. I just chose one and there we go. The first day is as follows: 'Write about your current relationship, if you are single discuss how single life is'.
So, here I go...
At the moment, as you probably guessed by the title, I am single. It's great. Seriously. Sometimes I do kind of long for the attention and excitement relationships bring, but often they can be a bit stressful. I'm only in year 8 so relationships are just a big bundle of awkwardness. Out of my group of friends, I'm probably the most likely to date anyone at the moment but, thinking about it, I much prefer the company of my bestest friends than a boyfriend (or girlfriend)! There are pros and cons to dating people, and at my age, there are a lit…
