Hello there!

My internet is rather slow and we are just in the hotel for a few minutes, but I wanted to slap on a couple photos of what we've done so far!

So the first thing we did was a bus tour, during which my camera died about 1/3 of the way through but I got a few pictures!

The next day (yesterday) we took the train to Leicester to watch the Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge. You can imagine I just about died when I heard about this event and bought tickets as soon as it was announced! It was raising funds for Irish Autism Action and Hearts and Minds UK, a Scottish arts-in-health organization. As an autism support worker studying to be a clinical therapist, this is a cause that is very near and dear to me! Present at the game were various celebrities and footballers, including Liam, Louis, Niall and Harry, as well as Piers Morgan, Ronan Keating, and Jack Whitehall. Harry wasn't supposed to be there, so I almost fell over when he ran onto the pitch! It was an AMAZING day.

All in all it has been an amazing trip so far! I will keep y'all posted as time goes on.

Until next time!

TTFN, Ta Ta For Now!

Hello munchkins!
Yes, it's me again, were you expecting someone else?

I need to make a note to myself to never say I am going to write a post on a certain day or at a certain time, because I never do it (see previous post). But regardless, here we are once more.

As I type this, my eyes are half closed and I should have ended laptop time about an hour ago. A mixture of homework and the sounds of my brother yelling at his video game have kept me awake thus far, so now is as good a time as any for a little chat.

I don't really have a theme for this post, but just wanted to throw some things out into the world and see where they land. If you have been reading for a while, you will remember that I was anxiously awaiting a once in a lifetime (well hopefully more than once) dream trip to London and Dublin. Well guess what. THAT TRIP IS THIS SATURDAY. AS IN TWO DAYS FROM NOW. At the moment I am a big ball of nerves and excitement and stress and smiles and tears and GLEE. I can't even really comprehend it all. It still feels kind of like a dream that I'll wake up from right before takeoff. However, the overflowing suitcase at the foot of my bed and my depleting bank account tell me otherwise. I can't wait to get this trip started, and I'll be sure to take lots of pictures every step of the way!

I really wanted to write more, but I just yawned approximately seven times while writing that last paragraph. So rather than blabber on, I think I'll leave it here. If I have time in the next couple of days I will write something, BUT NO PROMISES. See how I am setting myself up for success here?

I know there are only a few of you that comment here, but I'm wondering, would you rather I do small posts as I have time while in London? Assuming I have any time at all. Or would it be better to do one big post when I get home? Let me know!

Until next time!

How Ya Doin'?


Yes, it's me, Liv. Please don't hurt me, I know it's been a while.

Do you ever get this grand, fun idea in your head, but then when you try really hard at it, it's not so fun anymore? When I started this blog, I had this grand notion of sunshine, lollipops and rainbows all the time. But I got so caught up in writing the right thing, or trying to sound a certain way, that this did not become the case. Blogging kind of lost its appeal because it just became so dang hard!

Here's what I'm thinking. Who says blogging can't be unicorns and gumdrops? And why should I ever try to be something I'm not? It's all quite silly, the stress I put on myself. So, from now on I will continue to write, as 100% me. It might get a little weird, and you might not always be particularly enthused by the material, but I'm going to give it a fair shot.

Get ready world, it's about to get crazy.

Until next time (and by next time I mean at some point in the next 5 hours),
Liv :)
