Black and white portrait of teen blogger Lily Kate France


Not my most positive of posts!   Ever have those days – or even just afternoons – where stupid things just annoy you 10x more than they usually would?

The very fact that it’s raining is pissing me off far more than it should.  It’s nearly June, why isn’t the sun shining?!?  Drizzle and grey skies, seriously?!?  Really shouldn’t let the weather have an impact on my mood.  I’d be in for a lottttt of rubbish days in England that way.  Doesn’t exactly improve an already crappy day though does it?  Super annoying too when I’m making all these cute summery clothes, then not having chance to wear them.  Perfect example of a stupid thing that shouldn’t annoy me, but does.

Why don’t more people do random things for fun?  Need me some more spontaneity in my life.  I know it’s all very whimsical to say let’s just hop on a bus and see where we end up, but seriously, I’d be down for that.  Or just spontaneous grabbing a coffee with someone I haven’t seen in ages, y’know.  Or even someone I haven’t seen at all.  Little stuff.

Restlessness is not a fun feeling.  Restlessness for no apparent reason, in my case.  That’s when I start pacing my room, then rearranging stuff, then making endless cups of coffee, and doing all manner of other things without actually achieving anything.  Don’t sit well with me, that don’t.  Restlessness is one of those feelings where you can’t quite put your finger on what’s wrong, but you’re unsettled for some reason or other.  I can’t stand it.  Hence the writing a ranty post of no value whatsoever!  I’m hardly short of stuff I could (and should) do, but… nahh.  It’s just s annoying feeling like you really wanna go somewhere and do something, then not knowing what to do.  ‘Just chilling’ gets boring after a while.  I’m more of a ‘go, go, go’ kinda person tbh!

Everybody else seems to be having fun on your boring days.  I knowww, what you see on Facebook and Instagram and whatnot isn’t the full story!  But still, I swear everybody else seems to be all smiles and giggles when you’re feeling kinda blah.  Typical.  ‘Comparison is the thief of joy and all that’ but seriously, who can help comparing their life to others’ occasionally?  Better than theirs, worse than theirs.  It’s pretty unrealistic to pretend FOMO is avoidable.  Yep, the grass is always greener (what is it with me and these quotes today?) and I’m sure it works both ways.  I guess that’s one of the downsides to social media – the way it rubs in our faces what we haven’t got and aren’t doing.

Something else really irritated me before, and now I can’t remember what it was.  Which is irritating in itself.  FGS.

    The weather is annoying me far more than it should. I can’t believe that it is almost June and I’m still stuck with grey skies, rain and temperatures not really getting above the mid-teens! Where the hell is summer?! I want to be able to wear my shorts again but right now I’d settle for not having to wear a jumper!

      It’s rubbish isn’t it! The heavy rain forecast for all day today isn’t helping. -.- These grey drizzly days could literally be February or June couldn’t they?

    I seriously am having the same day as you. It’s rainy over here in North Dakota! I’m getting these snapchats of all my friends having a nice time a WEEK after school ends. And here I am just sitting here waiting for something to happen. Like a little bit more of a good time than it has been. I always thought of summer being a jolly ol’ time. But no. You took the words out of my mouth. Or screen I guess.. But thanks.

      I think lots of us are feeling the same way at the minute! Hey at least you’ve finished school already – always been jealous of American summer holidays. But I know what you mean about feeling that you should be out having way more fun than you are! Still time I guess! 😀

    Yeah, I do have those kinds of days too. Sigh! Or what about when you have something to do at 2:00 pm for a couple of hours on a weekend. What to do before that won’t make you late for the next thing, but feel restless? People are not really spontaneous are they? As you get older you don’t tend to want to try new things either. Or it seems that you are the only one who is game for a new activity. I decided to learn to play the drums while one of my girls does ballet on Wednesdays. Drums are just across the hall from ballet! But today was the last drumming lesson, so it is back to hanging around with the other mothers while the kids dance. Stay tuned for some more complains and groans from me.

      Ahh I know that feeling too! Feel free to complain as much as you’d like 😀 Having an appointment or something in the middle of the day is so annoying, knowing that you can’t really do anything before or after so it’s basically a full day wasted.
      When I’m a little older, I hope to be like you and still trying new things! You’re the cool mum playing the drums 😀

    I know exactly what you mean! I’m feeling incredibly irritated right now actually, hahaha…Don’t you just hate it when people are having fun without you? Seriously, you feel so left out and lonely even if you don’t want to be there in the first place…

    OH! AND YOU KNIT?! That’s incredible! I knit too! It’s great to find another teenage knitter, all I’ve seen are slightly older…hahaaha

      Yay for teenage knitters! There aren’t so many of us around! Thanks for stopping by 😀
      It’s just so annoying feeling like you want to be out having fun but aren’t sure what to do!

    […] a non-bralet-related note, I’m feeling far less restless and irritated than I did the other day!  I had some spontaneous Wednesday night fun… finally got an hour or two of revision […]
