Life is a riddle; unfortunately the answer's not written on the back of anything

I must apologise for my large absence. Sometimes the things in life just throw you upside down and inside out.

Anyway onwards and upwards 🙂

So as many of you now know it’s the summer time when students gather en masse to ditch the schoolbooks and uniforms for the beaches (weather permitting)  and unsurprisingly for many older teenagers the alcohol and partying….

Both the trip to the beach and a night out can be a little bit of harmless fun if dealt in the right way, but it has been quite close to my attention that many recent media stories, along with my friends’ activities,  have namely put shame to and exploited the innocent gesture of a night out.

Has this become aware due to my age and increasing exposure and knowledge of getting drunk?


Is there an evil antisocial monster lurking that is trying to demise the student’s ethical perception and parental reaction and relation of a night out?

Is this modern social disintegration and the student’s  confusion between the hierarchy of friends vs family driving us to making more wrong decisions or has this danger of overly drinking been apparent from generation to generation but has been sensationalised more recently by media outputs?

Till next time x


Peer Pressure Torments? February 15, 2010

Yeh, so peer pressure, something you would have probably heard over and over in Drama. I have anyway, and it’s something very common in our teenage minds. If your friend does it, you wanna do it too, just for popularity’s sake.

I wouldn’t say I’m that gullible, but there have been times recently where you feel you’re missing out on things that other people are doing, things you don’t particularly wanna do on the inside, but try to do on the outside just to look good.

I would admit I am more introvert than extrovert, and the thought of going out to parties on a Friday or Saturday night isn’t the most appealing thing to do. If it were up to me, and it is obviously, I would prefer to just stay in and watch tv – it’s more relaxing.

That’s one side to the argument, but how about the fact that if i don’t do any of this now, will I be ever be able to experience this again??? I’m 17 almost now and so far my teenage years have been average and rather lacking high paced excitement i.e. going out at night, but if I did change my ways, similar to my friends, would it help my self esteem? would it help my confidence in meeting other people?

Maybe in this sense, it really isn’t peer pressure that’s leading me to the partying side, but the realisation that I can’t always stay in every night watching tv if i wanna get on with my life or do something different, without that feeling of regret I may get when I’m forty that I never tried anything out that others did….


Happy Valentines Day and Happy Chinese New Year! February 14, 2010

Hey guys and girls,

So today is Valentines day, Sunday 14th February 2010, and like the marginal majority of us teens, it’s a day which we partially dread, but also makes us realise or highlight the fact that we’re still single and cannot take this opportunity to show our love to someone whom we haven’t got. Aww 😦

People who on the other hand do have someone to cherish really do sometimes rub it in that they get breakfast in bed and a huge lovely card to go with on facebook or twitter and although they’re not trying to, they sometimes accidently try to demoralise us singles.  Shame 😦

On a brighter note it’s also the start of the chinese new year so there is at least something out there that is for everyone today. And besides, there’s always next year and the year after…. 😉

Ciao x


Hey Guys January 16, 2010

Like the name said – hey guys.


So to be honest this isn’t my first blog. I made one last year on blogger and it went completely weird and wrong and in the end I just decided to leave it. Silly me 😦 Nonetheless experience is still there….

So I suppose I better introduce my self, I’m Sean (NOT Shaun – hint!), but me and my friends just call me Seany because it’s cooler 🙂

I live in an average (by average I mean OMG why am I living here!!!) town called Hastings in East Sussex which is in England for everyone around the world.

I am 16 years old, ageing rapidly sadly 😛 and I live with my parents.

I also have a fish with no name. Why’s that? Long story – Do Not ask!

I go to college and study Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Psychology – yes ‘boring’ you’re probably thinking but I’m a boffin – accept it! 😛

Another thing that you will have to accept is that I am not straight – but neither am I completely gay. I am bi curious technically but venturing into bisexuality. Now that isn’t an excuse to keep all the ‘traditionalist’ people to keep reading, NOR is it a reflection of my indecision about my sexuality;

That we all know certainly is absolute rubbish. BISEXUALITY IS REAL.

For now that’s about it but if you wanna talk more about anything, (anything is the sense that I won’t feel as if I’m talking to a 6 year old), talk to me on the wonderful creation known as…


Back soon xx
