Hey 🙂 it’s been a while.

Firstly I would just like to say sorry to the people that were reading my blog posts, but mainly I would just like to say sorry to myself for letting myself down, I was committed to doing this enabling the possibility to voice my thoughts and opinions on a platform that is extremely creative and is a free space for me just to talk about anything I could possibly be contemplating in the maze of my own mind.

I really don’t  know what I was thinking, like Nell come on be real, blogs aren’t going to write themselves, the CBA(can’t be arsed) faze isn’t just going to disappear from night to day, the stress of fourth and the likelihood of failing subjects hadn’t actually hit yet, oh and believe me it got to me and a lot.

I overestimated the capability of my brain learning 10 subjects all at once, having 19 important things to do in the last week and a half such as exams, presentations, the musical, projects… I mean I knew I could do it but to be painfully honest here, I could have got much better grades if I had just put a little bit of effort in, once in a while. I got an 8,3 out of 10, that’s the total result of my year where all of my scores are counted and divided to retrieve that number.

I genuinely can’t express the way I feel, at the peak of my stress, I knew it was all because I wanted better notes but I couldn’t have them since I tried too late and that infuriates me.  But oh well, we all learn from our mistakes, and as they say, it takes a very brave person to acknowledge their errors, so that’s me the brave 15-year-old.

So now schools up, the 4 years of pure joy are over, I’m happy, sad and scared; happy because I did it, I finished and with ¨good grades¨; sad because I think I made a huge impact at school with many things, you tend to, if you are the student of the year hehe and I can’t believe I’m going to leave it all behind. I’ll tell you guys in another post what I mean by big impact; and finally scared because I’m going to be starting a new stage of my life, which is an uncharted area for the Drake family, Bachillerato.

SUMMERS here, so I’m going to try to make the most of it and absorb every ounce of tranquillity before I step on the big, bad and petrifying new roller coaster that is college, with new fresh experiences.

YOURS SINCERELY,

THE BRIGHT AND SHINING ONE  XXX

New season. Nueva estación.

ENGLISH

Autumn is finally here, my favourite season of the year apart from Winter; being able to snuggle up in a blanket or dressing-gown, looking forward to coming home from school to a cosy house, candles lit, fairy lights on in your bedroom and candles on filling the room with a comforting, delightful smell; the smell of the earth after it’s rained… What’s not to like?

First of all, the previous week was quite hectic for me, everyone says that Tercero is the hardest year hahaha banter, wait til you get to Cuarto. I had to audition three times (because I had three roles) I also had to re-audition for the role of Alice, my friend Magdalena and I went up against each other for the part. The group of teachers (the judges) A.K.A The Wonder Group, as they call themselves 😉 want-to speak to my classmate and me tomorrow because they can’t decide who Alice should be.

I’m not going to lie, I’m quite anxious because it’s most probable that she gets the part. She had auditioned for other roles and she did them so well they told her to audition for Alice, “great” and if she doesn’t get Alice the other roles won’t coincide, so you’re probably reading the blog of the future White Queen, “fun” note the sarcasm. Now you’re most likely wondering that why I auditioned for the White Queen if I don’t actually want the role (because I can’t seem to get the voice correctly or understand her personality well), I didn’t really have an option the teacher said that I should be her so she signed me up.

This is all going on in one, yes! I repeat one subject, HELP ME!

I’ll let you know how it goes on in next weeks blog, which is going to have a theme, can you guess what it’s going to be about? I will give you a hint, it’s scary.

After that, on the weekend there was no rest for the wicked, I had to help my mum A.K.A “La Rosilla” with-the family business, for a big event she was catering for. The lady whose party it was had just “recovered” from breast cancer, so she wanted to celebrate life. The theme was ‘White and fifty shades of pink’, cocktail bars, musicians, more food than I’d ever seen. She had organized as a surprise for her guests”The Dutch Diana Ross” a drag queen to sing and entertain all her friends and family, I had never seen a drag act in person so it was very intriguing, so dramatic and everyone including us aprons on and all, were up dancing.

So that’s Nelliewelly out, I hope you have an amazing week,

Make your dreams come reality by unleashing your inner sparkle.

autumn

ESPAÑOL

El otoño finalmente está aquí, mi temporada favorita del año aparte de invierno; poder acurrucarse en una manta o bata, deseando volver a casa desde la escuela a una casa acogedora, con velas encendidas, lucecitas encendidas en el dormitorio y velas para llenar la habitación con un olor reconfortante y encantador; el olor de la tierra después de haber llovido … ¿Qué más quieres?

En primer lugar, la semana anterior fue bastante agitada para mí, todo el mundo dice que Tercero es el año más difícil jajaja, espera hasta que llegues a Cuarto. Tuve que hacer tres audiciones (porque tenía tres papeles). También tuve que volver ha hacer una audición para el papel de Alicia, mi amiga Magdalena y yo nos enfrentamos para el papel. El grupo de profesores (los jueces) también conocidos como “The Wonder Group”, como le gusta llamarse a sí mismos;) quieren hablar con mi compañera y yo mañana porque no pueden decidir quién debería ser Alicia.

No voy a mentir, estoy bastante ansiosa porque es más probable que ella obtenga el papel. Ella había hecho audiciones para otros papeles y los hizo tan bien que le dijeron queinterpretara el papel para Alicia, “genial” y si no consigue a Alicia los otros papeles no encajarán, entonces probablemente estés leyendo el futuro blog de la Reina Blanca, “guay”, nótese el sarcasmo. Ahora probablemente te preguntes por qué audicioné para la Reina Blanca si no quiero el papel (porque parece que no puedo conseguir la voz correcta y no entiendo bien su personalidad), realmente no tenía una opción, la maestra dijo que yo debería ser ella, así que ella me inscribió.

Todo esto está sucediendo en una, ¡sí! Repito una asignatura, ¡SOCORRO!
Te contaré cómo va en el blog de la próxima semana, que tendrá un tema, ¿puedes adivinar de qué se tratará? Te daré una pista, da miedo.

Después de eso, el fin de semana no hubo descanso para los malvados jejeje, tuve que ayudar a mi mamá osea “La Rosilla” con el negocio familiar, para un gran evento que ella estaba preparando. La mujer de quien era la fiesta, se había “recuperado” de cáncer de mama, por lo que quería celebrar la vida. El tema era “Blanco y cincuenta sombras de rosa”, bares de cócteles, músicos, más comida de la que jamás había visto. Ella organizó una sorpresa para sus invitados “La holandesa Diana Ross”, una drag queen para cantar y entretener a todos sus amigos y familiares, nunca había visto un actuación de drag en persona, así que fue muy intrigante, tan dramático y todos, incluidos nuestros delantales, estabamos bailando.

Así que un saludo, Nelliewelly, espero que tengas una semana increíble.

Haz que tus sueños se vuelvan realidad desatando tu brillo interior.
