Life Update: Motivation

Hey Guys! Long time no see! I'm sorry school and stuff has been really busy. Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my last post. I know that the post was more serious than the other posts so thank you for sharing your thoughts on it. So today I'm going to be doing a little life update to tell you guys how I've been, I've not been really motivated lately but I have some new goals so yay!

Have you guys ever felt overwhelmed with everything? In my case, it was with different topics

School: Keeping my grades up, dreaming about college and careers, finishing my homework, tests etc.

Social Life: Keeping in touch with friends, staying out of drama, supporting each other

Ideas: Photography, writing ideas, drawing, books, comics, blogging etc


I have been feeling so overwhelmed with all these that I decided to do each half-heartedly and that got me nowhere. So now I've decided to have some goals and start doing each thing whole - heartedly. I can't manage my well which is one of the reasons I haven't been able to accomplish what I want to do, so now my first goal is to set up my organizational system, I'll keep you guys updated.

What are your short term goals? What do you do when you feel unmotivated?

Cyber Bullying + Internet Safety

   Hey guys, today I am going to be talking about cyber bullying. This is a VERY important topic, and it has to do with the online world. If you didn't already know cyber bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature. 
 
Cyber Bullying happens a lot in the online world. Although the online world is fairly safe and positive, not all parts of the the internet are safe.  

Cyber bullying can cause people a lot of problems. One example of cyber bullying is mean/hateful messages. 

My friends sometimes send me chain mail, which is a message that says to pass it on to (# of people) or (something) will happen to you. Don't participate in it. Tell your friends to please not send you any chain mail, and suggest them not to participate in chain mail either. Some of these emails are either sen to scare you, or have a tracking thing to track your email and others you send it to.

Another thing to keep in mind, is that you need to be an UPSTANDER and not a bystander. An upstander is someone who acts when they see something wrong. A bystander is someone who sees something wrong but does nothing about it. You want to be an Upstander!

Different ways to be an Upstander online are:


  • Report people on social media who are bullying people
  • Tell a trusted adult if you/someone else are getting bullied
  • Be careful about what you post online

So guys I want to tell you one more thing, be safe online. I love Pinterest and google+ and messages and all the other social media that I have. But always before you post/ text remember one thing T.H.I.N.K. So think is an acronym which stands for

T - is it true?
H - is it helpful?
I - is it inspiring?
N- is it necessary?
K - is it kind?

Cyber Bullying is a horrible thing and one way you can make a difference is to spread awareness about it! Tell your friends and family, talk about internet safety on social media, or make a blog post about it! The more people know about the safer and better the online world can be!

Thanks guys for reading my rambles :) I hope you guys spread awareness about cyber bullying!

Chitter Chatter 1: Stress Management

Hey guys! So I am starting a new series called Chitter Chatter, where I will be giving advice and talking about some stuff to help you guys :). If you have a question you need advice on you can comment below or email me at: atweenschitterchatter@gmail.com . If you wish to remain anonymous email me and tell me that in the email. This series will me coming out twice a month.

Today's post is on stress. I have a lot of things to tell you guys about stress, but today I am going tell you some ways to manage stress. So anyhoo lets get into it!

Deep Breathing

Ya I know everyone says this, but when I am freaking out anywhere either because a lot of pressure is on me or I am feeling scared, (this happens A LOT) I close my eyes for 20 seconds and take a deep breath. When I am doing this I block out whatever's going around me and just focus on my breath. That may sound weird, but it helps, like really, guys just trust me on this. If focusing on your breath sounds too weird, try counting to 10 or 20. The science behind this is that deep breathing helps bring oxygen to your brain which brings you calmness.

Positive Affirmations 

I mentioned this in my 3 ways to be positive post that postive affirmations help you stay positive, but they also help you when your stressed. When your feeling stressed repeat to yourself out loud, in a mirror or you can whisper to yourself "I'm going to be okay" "I will rock this" "I will get through this". These can give your stress relief and help you feel calmer and stronger.

Journal

A journal is a great way to manage stress! I usually like to talk to someone when I feel overwhelmed, but there are some things I can't talk to people about so I write about it in my journal. It makes me feel relieved that I have let go of something and not have it bottled up inside me.

Stretching

I don't really like exercise so doing stretching helps me feel better. Yoga is another helpful exercise.

Taking a Walk

Fresh air is very beneficial so I highly suggest taking a walk around your neighborhood, or some place else. It gives you a chance to clear your mind and calmly think about the issue.


That's all for today guys, I hope you enjoyed it!

What are ways you manage your stress? What do you guys think of the new header?

3 Ways to Be More Positive



Hey Guys! I haven't posted in a while I know....I am working on it. :) So today I decided to give you some tips on how to be more positive. I had a pretty stressful week socially and academically. I had a test every day of last week (except for Monday) and 2 tests on Friday! I also might make a series on this so yeah. Anyhoo lets get into the post.


1. POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS

Everyday look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you can do it! It feels kind of weird at first, but trust me its really helpful. Sometimes when I have a test or something I am nervous about I tell myself that I am ready. Somehow just saying the words helps me feel calmer.

2. MUSIC

I found on days I am feeling really negative or just kind of blah I like listening to some upbeat music and remember some happy memories. Oh and have a dance party. maybe 2. hehe....

3. PLAN/GOAL

I don't know if its just me but when I am stressed I like to make a plan to reach what I want. Like for example if its Monday and I have a test on Friday which I am nervous about, I would make a study plan. Or if I had a fight with a friend, I would make a plan to apologize or talk about it.



What do you do when you have a stressful week? How do you stay positive? This question is kind of unrelated, Do you use a planner or a bullet journal?

How to Relax After School





Hey, Guys! Long time no see! Sorry, I have been really disorganized and unproductive these past weeks. How was your Halloween? I went as a devil. I have been testing out NaNoWriMo and it's been really fun! I am doing the young writer's program version because I am under 13. I have been having trouble getting my story along because I didn't plot in advance...hehe.  Anyhoo that's enough about me, let's get into the post!


How to Relax After School


School can be really stressful, and it's nice to unwind after a long day of school.



DANCE PARTY



Have a dance party! I like having dance parties after doing my homework as a celebration. They can be as short as 5 minutes to as long as 20. When you dance it reduces stress, and you're getting exercise done! Some songs I love dancing to are Closer by The Chainsmokers, I AM OBSESSED! and Sit Still Look Pretty by Daya.



MOVEMENT



When you do exercise, it releases endorphins which send a message to your brain to make you happy. I think exercise is boring. So for a person who doesn't like exercising much, I suggest that you have a dance party, or go for a walk. If you feel kind of stiff, doing a couple stretches can help. You should try yoga which is basically stretches, but they are really fun. If you look up simple yoga stretches you can find some really easy ones.



TAKE A SHOWER



I usually take a shower in the mornings but when I am feeling really stressed out I take one after I come home from school. When I feel stressed, I like to think that the water is washing all my worries away and I feel really refreshed and relaxed when I'm out. Showers will help you feel better.



CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES



Sometimes when you are wearing your school clothes, it can make you feel kind of stiff and not comfortable. So when you get home, after you eat something, it's nice to change your clothes, so you can feel more comfortable when you are doing your homework.

DIY Cat Costume

Hey Guys! Sorry for posting one day late :( I have decided from now on I will be posting on Fridays! This week I am going to show you how to make a DIY cat costume for Halloween. It's cute, affordable and easy! And here's the bonus! With this costume you can make different types of cats! You just need to change some things for the costume! Read on to find out more...

PART 1: CLOTHES

I will be showing you how to make two different types of cat costumes. Both of them are really easy. For the Cheetah costume the clothes you will need are cheetah tights or leggings and a cheetah print shirt or black shirt.

For a black cat you just need a black tshirt and leggings/tights.


PART 2: ACCESSORIES

For Accessories lets first start with makeup. I am not allowed to wear makeup but my parents let me wear a little for halloween to go with my costume. So for makeup you could do cat eyes or winged eyeliner and then make some whiskers and nose with face paint.
Maybe I'll be a cat for halloween?  Idk:

Another accessory which would be really cute is a cat ears headband
Cat Ears
Some other accessories could be black shoes, and you can buy or make a tail. 


Have a wonderful weekend! What are you going to be for Halloween? What do you think of my new signature for October?
