So this is my first post back after blogmas. I am so proud of myself for using my blog a lot more lately and hopefully I will continue to write in 2017. What posts would you like to see me do? Comment down below. Today's post is about all the amazing memories I have made in 2016.
In 2016 I went to see three musicals. I went to go and see The Lion King and Wicked with my school's drama department. A lot of my friends went to so it was really fun for all of us. Before watching The Lion King, we went to Covent Garden and watched some cool bands and artists perform. When we went to wicked we just hung I out at the Victoria Station food court/ My Mum took me to see Hairspray at the Marlowe Theatre and I loved it.
"Voice In A Million" AKA "VIAM" is a show where schools come together and create a performance. We were given a list of song to learn and we went there to perform them. It was such a great atmosphere in Wembley. Everyone was standing up dancing and singing. Then Bars And Melody came out and performed one of their songs. I knew all the words and I was almost in floods of tears. We didn't get back home until 12:30pm but I don't care because it was such a great experience for all of us who took part.
Yes, I did perform in my school talent show this year. Me, Chloe, Hollie and Sam went up infront of a lot of people and performed "This is gospel" by Panic! At The Disco. Unfortunetly, we did not get through to the final round. But, do I regret it? NO! It really helped boost my confidence and it helped me gain a lot more control over my stage fright.
Meeting Up With An Old Friend
Me and Ellie decided we were going to spend the day with one of our primary school friends. She left to go to a different school and I only got to see her on the rare occasion. We met up again and went shopping at Bluewater. We took photos in the urban outfitter booths and I vlogged the intire thing. Go check out the vlog on my Youtube channel.
This is probably my biggest accomplishment of 2016. I learnt to play the guitar! I have wanted to learn for years but teachers never worked for me so...I taught myself. My goal for 2017 is to learn barre chords as they are a lot more difficult to play. But, so far I am happy with what I can play and I am now confident enough to play my guitar up on stage and on the internet.
Race For Life
This year I took part in Cancer research's "Race For Life". This was my third year participating in this event. My Mum and Sister also took part with me. It was such a good day and I am so happy that I made a change to people's lives.
Meeting Tanya Burr
I am not going to talk to much about this one because I videoed the whole day and blogged about it a few months ago. Me, Ellie and Gracie went to the Tanya Bakes signing in London. It was such a good day so click here to watch it or click here to read about it.
