My Life - As I Know It

Hey All. Kindaa New To This, Please Do Excuse My Crap Blog-gy Skills. :)

Well Then, I Guess I Can Start With When I Was Born! I Was Born On 22nd November At 9.05pm Weighing In At 6lbs 9.5 oz. I Was Orginally Meant To Be Born On 15th November - The Same As My Grandma's Birthday. But Hey, I Decided To 'Stay In' For An Extra Week. I Think I Still Have Somehow 'Inherited' This Somewhat 'Gift' As I'm Really Not A Morning Person. :) My Mother, Father & Older Half Brother Were At The Scene Of My Arrival. My Mother Being Valerie Clark, My Father Colin Clark. And My Older Sibling Ben Grimshaw. There Was A Funny Moment When Ben Wanted To See My Arrival, And So My Mother Had To 'Hold Me In' Until Ben Had Finished Washing His Hands In Another Room. She Got A Bit Annoyed When Ben Said "Hang On A Minute - I'm Just Drying My Hands.." I Do Have Photos Of This Eventful Day - Stuffed Away In A Photo Album Amongst The Junk In The Loft. I Then Returned To The Clark Household To See My Yet Other Older Brother Robert Clark Who Wanted To Hold His New Baby Sister. He Was 2 Years Old At The Time And So The Parents Had To Keep A Close Eye On Him.

A Few Weeks Later, I Had My Christening. So I Had Alot Of 'New People' Just To See Me! A Few Included My Grand Parents From My Mum's Side Over To See Me; (My Grandad Was Delighted To Have A Grandaughter & Cherished Me For The Whole Time He Was With Me.) My Other 2 Sets Of Grand Parents From My Fathers Side - My Grandad Les.. (Was Know For His 'Two Ronnies' Glasses) And His Wife Jenny And Also My Nana Peg And Her Husband George. Along Came My Auntie Christine, My Aunty Jo & Uncle Bob (No Jokes - That's Really Their Names!) And My God Mother Adi With Her Husband (At The Time) Chris, And Her Son Luke. I Don't Remember This Day Exactly Of Course - But I Have Seen The Embarrassing Videos. They Are Tucked Away On Purpose. :) My Mum Did Tell Me I Was Asleep For The Whole Of The Christening Even When Nigel Threw Water Over Me. - I Don't Think I'd Have The Same Reaction Back Then As I Did Now - So Don't Try Anything On Me. On That Day I Had A Lovely Pink Cake With A China Boot On Top As A Decoration (This Is Now In My Bedroom!) And Recieved A Load Of Presents. Some Of Which I Still Have (And Are Also In My Room!!) :P

So I Grew Up Into A Mainly Male-Based Family. This Would Explain My Strong Tom-Boy Like Character From The Ages 6 - 12. I Wore The Hand Me Downs, I Watched All The Horror Movies, (Without Screaming Of Course..) We Would Constantly Be Playing Wrestling, I'd Play On The Computer Games, Destroy Any Barbie That Was Placed Into My Hands - Life Was Fun. You Could Say I Was A Rebel And Oh, I Was Just That. It Seemed More Fun Lighting French Bangers Than Playing With Dolls. I Had A Hobby For Climbing Trees, Bike Rides Into Guildford, Go Paintballing All The Works. My Best Friend At The Time Was A Girl Called Tamsin. It Was Only Us Two Girls Who Were Up To Do Anything Compared To The Other Kids In The Street. I Lived In Parkmead - A Small Estate But With Lots Of Good Friends, Great Places To Go Out And Play And Thee Best Chip Shop Ever.

I Have So Many Great Memories From That Place, Like When I First Rode My Bike, When We Used To Play School/Teacher, When A Neighbour Used To Bring Out All Her Dogs And We'd Go Play With Them, And One Bad One When I Opened Up My Right Hand Palm With A Massive Wad Of Glass. (Still Got The Scar To Prove It!) That Was 6 or So Years Ago Now! Cor, How Time Flies By When You're Having Fun.

Then In Year 6, When I Was 11 Years Old.. We Had To Move House. I Was Devastated. I Had To Leave My Friends, My Memories - Everything. We Had To Move House Because My Grandad And Grandma Had To Come Live With Us Since They Couldn't Cope Living By Themselves Anymore. So In June 2004 We Moved To Our New House In Rowly - Thorndale. At First When I Looked At It, I Didn't Like It One Bit. The Hallway Looked So Narrow, I Felt So Small, And There Where No Kids That I Knew Nearby. I Hated It.

But Now In 2009, I've Been Living Here For The Past 5 Years And Have Gotten To Love The Place. Yeah It Maybe Far From My Happy Memories, And There's Barely Anything To Do - At Least I've Got A Big Room To Myself And My Best Friend Lives Just Over The Road From Me, And That It's Closer To Guildford - What More Could I Want? Haha. Nah It's A Nice Big House With An Extremely Long Garden And It's Also The Best Place For BBQ's And Parties! ;)

Back When I Was In Primary School, Ending My 4 Years There, It Was Time To Hit Secondary School. I'd Changed From My Tomboy Character To Goth-Like Child By Year 7. So In Year 6 We Had This 3 Day Experience At My Next School - Glebelands. It Was So Weird, The First Time You Heard Bells Go Off Telling You To Get To Your Next Lesson Was Scary, The Place Is MASSIVE, Easily Got Lost And I Was Torn From My Best Mates Tamsin & Kayleigh. I Didn't Like It. However, I Did Make New Friends With This Girl From Guides And We Became Pretty Close Her Name - Cairo. She Was 3 Years Older Than Me, But She Looked Out For Me And We Had Some Great Memories Together. I Tended To Hang Around With Her And Met All Her Mates At School - They Were All Very Nice & Very Funny.

So In September Of That Year.. My Three Day Experience Suddenly Became My Next 4 Years Of This Place. The First Few Days Was Horrible, I Got Kicked Out Alot From My 'Friends', Didn't Have Anywhere To Hang Out Or Hang With, I Got Picked On For Being A 'Goth' And Also For My Leg. (Yeah If You Want To Know About It - It's On Here, I'm NOT Going To Type It All Out Again On This Blog! Haha). So Yeah, Life Wasn't Really Good. That's Until I Started Feeling More Welcomed With A New Group Of My Friends - All Of Which Are Still My Best Friends Now. :) They're The Best, They're So Funny, We All Look Out For One Another They're Amazing. Since Meeting Them, I've Changed. ALOT.

I'm Now Currently In Year 10 And Don't Worry I Love The Sound Of The Bell For Lunch Haha. I'm Studying Art, Drama, French And History For My 4 GCSEs Aswell As English Lit&Lang, Maths, Science (Double Award), RE, BCS and PE. I'm Not With The Academic Side Even Though My School Is A Science School, I'm Rather The Opposite - That Being I Love Art, Drama, Music & PE Haha.

This Year In 2009 - I've Done Soo Much More Than I Thought I Would, Gone Places I Haven't Been Before, Met Loads Of New Amazing People, Tried Something New Everyday Life's Good. This Is My Life Now And I'm Loving Every Minute Of It.

Comments Warmly Welcome If You Want. :)
