Eighteenth Birthday Celebrations

I'm now an adult! WOW and in these last 11 days I've booked to go inter-railing, booked flights, called the tax office (was on the phone for over an hour... dullest thing I have ever done!) and I've opened a savings account. Don't think I'm doing too bad as an adult!

My birthday was actually on a Monday and the first day back at sixth form which was kind of rubbish... I mean double English and double Psychology doesn't really fill you with excitement. But then at lunchtime we went to the pub for my first legal drink! Then I went to another pub that evening with my parents, so I did 18th right! The day before though I did have a family party which was lovely and I really enjoyed it.
The following day I had to travel to Portsmouth for a university interview (where I got an unconditional offer). I stayed with one of my best friends (who I only get to see every now and again) and we went out for lunch then spent the whole evening revising (for her exam) and watching the news (for my interview). It was so amazing to see Gemma though! The best birthday present!

I have then been out a few times into London since and also had a family meal out.

It seems crazy that I am now 18 even though I look like 16... which is definitely reflected by how many times I get asked to show my ID!

I’ve got PoTS...

So for the past 3 years I’ve been suffering with symptoms of what I now know is PoTS. PoTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a form of dysautonomia meaning my autonomic nervous system doesn’t work properly. Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls vital functions in the body such as: heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and digestion. So in people who have PoTS we experience symptoms such as: low blood pressure, high heart rates, nausea, fainting, pre-syncope, headaches, dizziness, heat intolerance, sickness, food intolerances, fatigue and shortness of breath to just name a few!

Interrailing around Europe...

How do you begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Seeing the world (well 5 countries) and making the best memories. This is my journey interrailing around Europe with my friend Amy.

Lets start at the beginning in Paris, which we were lucky to see, considering we narrowly made our train. On your interrail ticket it says to arrive at the station half an hour before your journey, be there an hour before! We arrive in Paris and after wandering up several wrong streets we find our hostel, Which is basic at best and the facilities were indescribable and its probably best I don't describe the shower anyways... Nevertheless we set out for the afternoon in true tourist spirit and saw as much of Paris as we could and getting the most candid photos possible. The Eiffel Tour, the Musee du louvre and the arc de Triomphe all featuring. The second day in Paris was spent in Disney land where Amy achieved her ambition in owning gold sparkly ears. To say this day was magical wou…
