A Fresh Start ~ How To: Survive In The Jungle

My first week of school is officially over and honestly it proved to be much harder than I thought that it would be. 

Year 10 involves a lot of hard work (all of which I am prepared to do) but it did hit me with a bang and by the second day I was stressed haha. The work isn't overwhelming but it will literally pile up quickly if you don't do each piece on the day that it's set.

Staying On The Topic Of School...

I have noticed that over the years many people feel as though first impressions are everything at school. Obviously if you're meeting new people you want to be kind and you don't want to be disliked but I feel as though first impressions are not anything to get stressed or upset about. I know people who have given up on the idea of 'change for the better' because they think that their reputation is already ruined.

Some people don't realise that other people's opinion of you can change and the thoughts of others should never stop you from achieving something that you really want to achieve.

In school I definitely feel as though my class mates become new people each year and teachers' perceptions of pupils change too. The person that you were in Year 7 is almost forgotten by the time that you reach Year 9. People expect you to behave the way that you do now and see you as the person that you are right now and in a few years time (if you change) who you are now may be forgotten. 

People change all of the time because they keep growing and learning and continue to craft 'who they are' and what they believe. 

It's never too late to start again and change the course of history. It's all up to you.

Urban Herbivore ~ Restaurant Review

On one of my Canadian adventures, I stopped by a restaurant called Urban Herbivore.
As soon as I spotted it I loved the quirky name and it's Eco-Friendly theme.

At Urban Herbivore you can chose from a wide range of sandwiches, soups, salads, deserts and drinks. I chose the 'Llama' which was the smallest salad (but still massive to me) and it tasted really good! I highly recommend it and think that it is perfect for on the go.

I have been obsessed with Iced Teas and Frapp├ęs recently, so I tried their Iced Tea and it didn't disappoint! (My Mum wasn't a very big fan of it though haha). 

I noticed that they list the ingredients for each dish on the menu. It gave me an idea *insert light-bulb emoji*. Whenever I'm stuck with packed lunch ideas for school and the beauty guru videos on YouTube just don't cut it, I'll adapt recipes from my favourite resrurants (e.g. The Panda Salad) and add other things that I like to make it unique ;). 

The lady behind the counter was really kind and gave me a free cupcake when I told her that I would write a review of the restaurant :)
The cupcake was gluten free (a plus for people with allergies) and was literally so yummy! 

Urban Herbivore is definitely a place that you need to check out, if you ever find yourself in the 6.  (They even do catering)!!
