This Summer, I'm leaving my comfort zone.

As you may or may not know, I have officially began my summer holidays and I have a lot of big things planned for this summer and most of them are a loonggggg way away from my comfort zone. Everyone has a comfort zone. A circle that sometimes limits what you will and won't do and one that sometimes expands it. I'd like to think that I have a large comfort zone but in all honesty? I don't. In September, I will be going to sixth form to start my A-levels and I am just a tiny bit nervous because I am terrible at meeting new people and socialising. Just the thought of going to a party where I only know the birthday girl and one other person makes me want to throw up. So  thinking about how I'm going to sit down in a class of thirty brand new faces and actually talk - the idea doesn't sit well with me. This is one of the reasons why I've decided to put on a brave face and start to do things that I usually would never do.

 Some of the things I'm going to do are small steps like getting my eyebrows threaded and tinted or learning how to wear contact lenses. Others  are huge steps like going camping with a bunch of people I don't know (more on that later) and applying for a job. But the whole point is to become a bolder version of me so that I can overcome hurdles such as meeting new people or speaking up in front of a new class. At the moment, I'm a ball of excitement and with fear because a lot of things are happening way faster than I first anticipated but overall I'm ecstatic to start because "life begins at the end of your comfort zone".

I will hopefully be blogging all about the activities that I get up to in the summer so that I can take you all along with me!

A Celebratory Dirty Burger.

Finally. I've finished with exams! Completely and utterly finished every single one of my GCSE's and I've never felt more free. I have so much planned for the summer including a trip to Brighton, my prom and completing my national citizens service and I can't wait to share it all with you. I am literally buzzing. To celebrate the end of exams my friend I decided to go and eat at Dirty Burger in Whitechapel after reading about in Carrie's (wishwishwish) post. It's a beautiful day today and I'm glad I spent it outside after being copped up in an exam hall for a month and a half.

Walking past, we almost missed the restaurant! From a first glance, you wouldn't know it was one. The place is so unique with amazing decor and fantastic music playing in the background. The menu's even on the wall. There wasn't much on it, but the burgers sounded delicious. I order a cheese burger with fresh lemonade (which was sooo sour) and crinkle cut fries. The entire meal was with us in less than ten minutes and our waiter was super friendly. I will defintley be visiting again, make sure you check them out if you're near.

Can't wait to post all summer! p.s I always feel really weird when I'm taking pictures in a restaurant, am I the only one? Hahaha.
