The List.

Hi you,

Okay so remember my post about the army base thing? That basically happened when we were on a school trip..a lot of crazy shit happened there. For instance, I damaged my vocal cords because of all the screaming but lets not get into that! What I do want to talk about however, is The List.

So I bet you have a bucket list? It may not be a really proper one but you have a vague idea in your head, right? Well, anyhow my friends and I finally started working on ours and after that process started I’ve been finding myself on travel websites and all those blogs that talk about new and amazing experiences because I just want to add it all to the list and hence not miss out on anything at all. 

Our list is insane. It has stuff like robbing a bank, learning to con people, hell..we even added discovering unicorns! But it also has those real things. The one’s a lot of us our dying to accomplish. Stuff like a road trip around Europe (can’t wait for that one!) or something as silly as getting into a bar fight. Ever since that talk about our List started we haven’t been able to stop. And I can’t wait to begin. I shall very soon.

Well, the point of this post was that make a list. Make lists. They keep you creative. They lead you to your goals and they keep you occupied because the first step of accomplishing anything is deciding what you want to accomplish, what your goal really is. 

I’m not asking you to go all YOLO and stuff..I’m just asking you to jot down things that are really important. Times running out so you better get going. 

Oh and remember to add a few lame things on the list..because believe it or not accomplishing one thing somehow gives you hope that you’ll be able to do all the others. The bigger ones. The scarier ones.

I’m dying to know what’s on your list! Please don’t forget to comment.

Cheers,

Potter

PS: The robbing the bank thing and the bar fight thing may suggest we have violent and criminal tendencies. But I promise you my friends are the nicest people ever. We wouldn’t hurt a fly. 

PPS: Okay maybe not that nice also. But we’re good kids.

Let’s join the army!

Tanks! Guns! Weaponry!

Will you believe me if I said I rode a tank? Or posed with a real-actual gun? Or sat in a vessel from which missiles are fired?

I really don’t know if you will, Weasley believes you won’t. But it’s true. The two of us actually visited an army base camp! (We were on an educational trip from school and they surprised us by taking us to an actual army base.) We would love to post a few pictures but turns out we can’t since  our nations security will be at risk then. I know right? Very sad.

I’m so charged and inspired right now! I also happen to feel very patriotic after this visit. It wasn’t only because of those bloody cool weapons or the childish excitement of walking with people in uniforms but it was also because of the joy you feel after meeting real heroes. The ones that literally take a bullet to keep us safe!

I can’t begin to describe how awesome it is and how soldier-like you feel when you do something like this!

Hug your soldier friend and appreciate their job! They’ll feel really happy and you’ll be guaranteed a tank ride, which by the way happens to be wayy too much fun!

Oh and side note, I’m joining the army.

Love you,

Potter

PS: If your a soldier or army person, thanks for everything you do. You’re my hero!

No plans this birthday.

My Birthday’s going to be here in 2 days. 23rd of October.

I was really excited a month ago for my birthday, but my excitement was kind of washed away when I realized there is going to be a 5 day school trip for all the geography and EVM students and we will be leaving early in the morning ON MY FREAKKIN BIRTHDAY!

Really, not the best way to celebrate ones birthday.

And not all are my friends are going to be with me since a lot of them haven’t chosen Geography or EVM for their IGCSE.

So basically I’ll most likely have to get up at 5.30am on my birthday, quickly get ready, have my parents drop me off at the airport, meet my friends (which are few in number cause majority of the students are 10th graders and out of the few 9th graders most of my close friends are missing), and spend a few hours in the flight, and ‘enjoy’ the hectic day planned ahead.

‘Its going to be SO much fun’- *Sarcastic voice*

For now I don’t really care. Whatever happens, happens. I’ll just have to deal with it.

P.S: Initially the trip wasn’t actually planned on the date of my birthday but had later been postponed due to bad weather at the destination.

I never saw this coming.
