Some Of My Personal Experiences

I’ve previously written a post about experiencing the best in life and I decided to share some of my own stories and experiences.

But really, what IS experience?

Well really…

experience
ɪkˈspɪərɪəns,ɛkˈspɪərɪəns
noun
  1. practical contact with and observation of facts or events.
    “he had learned his lesson by painful experience”
  2. an event or occurrence which leaves an impression on someone.
    “audition day is an enjoyable experience for any seven-year old”
verb
  1. encounter or undergo (an event or occurrence).

…if you ask google. But experience can be anything from something small (like posting a letter) to visiting places and travelling to even books you have read. Experience is literally EVERYWHERE!!

Charitable Donations

Two years ago, I had long, thick, straight hair, and I decided that as much as I loved my hair, someone else could love it more and value it just as much. As you may know, many people around the world are diagnosed with cancer every year, it s a tragic thing and I can’t say that I know how it feels to have cancer or know anyone with it, but I can only imagine what they could go through. Many of these people have chemotherapy that may cause hair loss. I came to a decision that I would cut my hair and donate it to the Little Princess Trust, who would turn it into a wig for these cancer patients. After I did this, I was not the slightest bit upset with my decision, I was delighted that it could possibly change someone’s life! You make think that this is not an experience, but it is, truly, one of the greatest experiences of my life and made me realise that you can make a change if you want.

Travel

I’ve travelled, been places, seen things, learnt more stuff. Many people say that travelling is one of the BEST ways to experience – it really is. Even at a young age I have travelled to many places in Europe and some of Asia and, honestly, I have learnt so much and I am so glad that I have done this/am doing it. Personally I am a huge fan of creativity in any form and of course…FOOD!! Travelling really gives you the best of everything, especially cuisine. The great thing is that, from a very young age, I loved souvenirs and small cute things, I went to the shop and my parents told me that instead of getting something that you will only ever use once and then it will simple be hidden  away or lost, buy a postcard. Yes, a postcard. From then on, Everywhere I have been, I have bought a postcard without fail and chosen them carefully, so that they actually link to the place and my memories associated with it. Not only are they cheap, but they are usually found anywhere! Last year, I was given a scrapbook for my birthday, and what better thing to put in it than my huge collection of postcards! I dedicated each page to a place and wrote who went, where and when and what we did. It is one of my most prized possessions because it holds so many memories.

The Battersea Power Station Project

Early last year, one of mum’s friends said she would take me to her office and see the battersea power station project in london. I decided around that time that I would like to lead a career in architecture, so it was THE perfect opportunity for me. I was extremely lucky to be able to see all of this and meet many people working on the project. I learnt about many of the different roles and jobs including facades designer, HR, and many others. AND I WAS EVEN ALLOWED ON SITE!! It was a fabulous experience and I even learnt about the difficult challenges you have to face…If at any time you come across an oppotunity like that, trust me, DO NOT LET IT SLIP OUT OF YOUR HANDS!!!

I really hope that this post helps you all and gives you a greater and clearer understanding about experiences and what they can mean and do. Go and experience the best in life…

AND STAY CREATIVE!

Best revision methods – and tips

revisionI know that exams and tests are very important and getting a good score is what you aim for. Really, the best way to excel in an exam is to revise.

But revision is boring. So here are some methods that are extremely useful and have proven to be successful.

  • No. 1 – cue cards. I find writing on these small revision cards is one of the best and easiest methods. Just add important formulas, bullet points, diagrams and other notes that you will need. Adding a ring is useful so you can just flip the cards over. If you want, on one side of the card, write a question and on the other side, write the answer.
  • No.2 – sticky notes. This is such a simple and easy method to use; write on the note and stick it somewhere like beside your light switch- somewhere you always go and use. This way, whenever you go to the switch, you will read the note and make a mental note on it.
  • No.3 – did you know that your an average person’s concentration span is 20 minutes! No point revising non stop for hours because none of it will be of use. So plan your revision time carefully! 20 mins of revising – and keep a goal to reach by the end – then 10 minutes of break(repeat). This way, you will probably end up revising much better.
  • No.4 – try not to keep your phone or any other tempting devices near you when you revise. this is a distraction making you concentration span even lower!
  • No.5 – don’t even bother making your notes look pretty! why? – distraction, waste of time, useless. But use highlighters to make important information stand out more.
  • No.6 – keep drinks and a few snacks beside you when you revise so you don’t have and excuse to get up and grab snacks and drinks. Drink plenty of water(that’s what they all say!) – trust me, it helps.
  • No.7 start revising earlier(not days before the exam) so you don’t have to cram everything into a day of revision. A head start always does you good.

Good luck!

(but you won’t need it if you revised properly)

Experience the best in life

Experience will change your life, you and your knowledge and understanding. Experience will help shape your future.

You should use experience in the best ways possible

Learn from bad experience to make better decisions later in your life. use knowledge you get from experience to improve and be a better person. If you are  learning and in school deciding what you want to be, you could use experience to help you decide what you think is right for you.

What experience teaches you

Experience teaches you a lot of useful things. It shows you what reality is like and gives you a feel of the world’s diversity. Education teaches you a lot but you won’t completely understand everything until you get  out there and experience it.

Why experience still matters

Experience matters a lot. If you never experienced enough, your life would be so boring and not interesting. Experience gives you stories to be told, dreams to achieve and a positive feeling.

What is the point in getting souvenirs and little things to keep information when you can make memories and make the most of them. If you do want to get a souvenir, think wisely and select something that will represent your memories or somehow related. Make your own souvenir or find them instead of buying them – get a special shell from the beach that makes you think back at those times for example.

Be creative!

How to clean your room when your busy

Got other things on your mind, busy? Still need to sort out your room but don’t know when to do it? These tips should give you a good idea on how to do it all.

Important bits first.

Once your back home from school or college, get changed into comfier clothes and grab something to eat and drink. After you’re settled down get out your homework diary and check how many things are either due tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. Do that so t’s out of the way and then it’s time to start.

Starting the cleaning plan

So whenever you’re cleaning your room you always need a good plan to make the clean effective. This may take you the rest of the day but will be worth it.

If you want a decluttered and open living room, then your going to have to make sure you have as few big bulky things lying around and hardly anything on display. If you want to display your things so they’re visible then you want to organise the display so it looks good.

Always make sure that your windowsills and shelves and worktops are cleaned. This prevents dust forming. Make your plan accordingly so that everyday you have a small different task to do so that you still have spare time. Don’t worry if it takes too long because it will help you realise what your taste is like.

Do it

Now you have your plan, go ahead and try it out. If you don’t like something them tweak your plan a bit accordingly.

Hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!Good Luck!:)

 

How to get rid of your things

having lots of things you really don’t need in not good. Here are ideas you can try out to get rid of your things

Firstly you need to have an area you can start off with.

  • The japanese method – hold the object and if you feel love then keep it else get rid of it…best give it to charity or recycle.
  • make a pile of things you 100% actually need…not like teddy’s but like uniform
  • get rid of things you don’t use or haven’t used for more than 2 months.
  • make use of things.
  • bin fewer things and recycle and give away most of it.
  • this man put all his stuff into bags and was only allowed to take one set of clothes a day and if necessary one other thing this way he only had the number of things he needed and 1/2 set/s of most items.
  • if you have lots of shoes think about it choose one thing that you have to wear for uniform if you go to school or office, something that goes with all of your outfits, trainers, something for winter and stuff and a pair of sandals if you insist. try cut down on heels and flat because they aren’t so good for your health
  • make things neater so you have easy access and can easily decide if you wantto keep something
