Little Life Update | NYT audition + Getting a Bob


It's been a while since we just sat and chatted, hasn't it? I think I'd like to make this blog more personal, that's what I like to read in other blogs anyway. So here's what I've been up to these past few weeks!

I got my braces off! I've had them since the start of Year 9, so that was nearly one and a half years of inconvenient eating! I've been embracing this new found freedom and joy of having straight teeth recently although at the moment I have retainers in full time until next week which is even more awkward. If any of you guys are battling orthodontic work, let me tell you that I feel ya and it will all be worth it when you have perfectly straight teeth!

I've been having these weird urges to just lop off my hair. Some girls can't stand to part with their hair but I just love making mine shorter and shorter! I wrote a post a few weeks ago about my advice on what to know before you get a bob so go check that out if you fancy a chop. I'm really happy with how mine turned out, what do you think?

On Thursday I went for an audition for the National Youth Theatre. It consisted of a workshop in the morning before a solo audition of a monologue in the afternoon. It would be amazing to get into the 2 week course in London this summer, but even some of their most successful alumni (*namedrop* Helen Mirren and Daniel Day Lewis) didn't get in until their second or third try! The whole day was a fantastic opportunity to learn from the actors who ran it and also the very talented auditionees!
