Planet Shay’s Fourth Anniversary!


Planet Shay Just Turned Four!!

 

This time in 2015, Planet Shay was created.

It was a boring January evening. My mum and sister sat in the living room watching TV and I was on the family computer, bored. January was always an awful month, to me. Miserable weather, nothing excited to look forward to, Christmas was so far away. With that in mind, I decided to create a blog. A thoughts blog where I could just talk about anything I wanted to and help other people out with problems, etc. I was already familiar with WordPress so it wasn’t difficult getting started. And Planet Shay was born.

Well…

Geekaline was born.

Cringe factor 100% I know!

The idea was combining the word ‘Geek’ (because I was into ‘geeky’ things and a few people called me that so why not just embrace it?) and ‘Coraline’ (because I loved Coraline).

 

My first few posts, apart from the introduction, were my new year resolutions, a post about siblings, and phobias. All those years ago, I wasn’t as knowledgeable as I am now, obviously, since we learn as we age, so many of my posts were a load of BS and some very negative and ‘ranty’ because I wasn’t in a good place and was always very sad and gloomy. But after four years, I’m happy with this blog. I feel like I’ve talked about topics and issues I’m passionate about and I feel like it has a much more positive atmosphere. I have also learnt a lot from it and from doing it.

 

I can’t believe it’s been four years! FOUR! And four is my lucky number so maybe a bit more luck this year and with my posts? XD

 

Thank you everyone who reads, likes and comments on my posts. It really does motivate me to carry on blogging! I know I haven’t been active lately and I haven’t been really good with catching up on other bloggers’ posts but I am very thankful for you, yes you, reading! 😀

 

Here’s to another year! 🥂

400 Followers!!!!

I was just checking my notifications, when I saw one pop up saying that someone had followed me, making it to 400 (actually 401 💁….) followers!

I honestly didn’t imagine getting this many followers so thank you to anybody and everyone for clicking that follow button! It means a lot to me. But that poor follow button…being pressed 400 times. 😂

There are so many people that I want to individually thank but that’ll take forever and I’ll miss a lot of people out but if you’re a frequent commenter and liker and general friend, you know who you are! ❤

I also want to mention that I won’t be here from tomorrow morning until Monday evening. I’m doing the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Practise Expedition, which requires me to walk eight hours every day in this thing called nature for three days and sleep in this thing called a tent while I’m. On. My. Period. I might as well freebleed and lead a trail like Hansel and Gretel so I’ll always know how to get back. TMI? 😂

It’s supposed to rain, too, and in my Bronze Expedition, I literally got stuck in the mud. My tight walking boots came off and I couldn’t get out. I had a couple of bugs trapped in my shoes and I hadn’t washed those boots out of fear for TWO YEARS! I’m pretty sure there were a family of inbred bugs after that… My friend also pushed me in cow poo on the last trip… I’m not really looking forward to tomorrow.

I don’t know how I’m going to do it!!!!

 

 

Anyways, I’ll probably post and reply to comments again on Tuesday or Wednesday, if I make it out alive.

 

Again, thank you all so much for 400 freaking followers!!! 😀

Quick Notice!

This is just a temporary post but I wanted to notify anyone reading this that I am currently doing exams. I’m sure a lot of you know that already since a lot of you are also doing exams right now. It’s exam season, the best time of year! Whoop. 😦

But anyway, with that means that I won’t be as active on here (that doesn’t mean I won’t be active). My exams end at the beginning of June so that’s when you’ll see more posts from me.

 

For the past week, I have been mainly posting pre written posts from before, as well as posts I wrote in the little free time I had (which is usually the half an hour breaks I have between revision sessions. I’m currently writing this in one of my breaks XD ). However, from now until possibly half term, which is the 28th I think, I will not be releasing ‘new’ posts. They’ll be new to you of course, but they’re just pre written. So if anyone’s nominated me for awards (specifically the two people who nominated me XD ), I’m not ignoring or not doing those awards, it’s just because I don’t have time to write them up. They’ll be up in June! 🙂

 

That’s it for now.

To anyone, who are currently doing exams, good luck! 😀

200 Followers!!!!

I reached 200 followers!!!!!!! What even???

That’s almost 200 followers in only one year! :0

tumblr_mxrlvitYAf1s7gykyo1_500Thank you so so soooooooooooo much for hitting that follow button!!! The poor button, it’s been hit 200 times. XD

And thank you dis-connect for being my 200th follower!

 

Originally, I wrote out a list of people, I want to really thank but I realized that I’m going to miss someone and feel really bad!

But I’m sure you know who you are 😉

 

I wanted to do something special in honour of 200 followers but I didn’t have  a clue so you can suggest something if you want. 🙂

 

But thank you so so so much!!!! 😀

 

I feel bad that this is a short post but I really don’t know what to say! (Apart from thank you, of course!)

 

Go on an adventure.

Happy Birthday VengeanceWearsBlack!

I literally JUST got the notification saying it has officially been a year since I made my blog and I have to go somewhere soon! XD

WordPress Birthday

The story started back in 2015, and a young little girl was bored, staring, blankly, at her computer screen.

What will cure my boredom? She thought to herself.

A blog? Lol I’ll probably delete it after a week like all your other blogs. Let’s do it!

She named her blog something very cringey. So cringey, she almost dies every times she remembers it. And then she changed it and then changed it again.

And guess what? You’re not going to even believe it….that girl….she was me. I know! Crazy, huh? I couldn’t even believe it when I told myself…

 

God! It’s been a freaking year!!! Happy Birthday blog!!!! (that’s literally like saying Happy Birthday human!)

I really couldn’t have done it without motivation and support so thank you every single one of you! I don’t like calling you my followers because I literally feel like I’m the leader of a cult and also, it kind of sounds like you worship me so…I’m not going to call you a follower. How about fan? XD I’m kidding! I’m going to have to think about what to call you guys. XD Friends? Readers? I don’t know!

Now I’m just rambling!

 

But yeah…thank you so much for joining my journey or even beginning it with me! I really appreciate it!!!!!

Happy Birthday Vengeance Wears Black!!!!

 

Go on an adventure.

Happy New Year!

It’s literally ten seconds into 2016!

Yes, I pre-wrote this! XD

 

I’m with my family right now and I haven’t been with the some of them to count down to the new year in a long long while so I hope because of that, the year could start off well and carry on just as well! Also 16 is my favourite number so fingers crossed it will be a lucky, less terrible year! 😀

 

Happy New Year! It could be 2016 already for you, where you are, or it could still be 2015! That’s quite cool, in  a way!

I hope this year will be amazing for all of you, full of success and happiness! I’m hoping that for me too, although, I hope for that every year!

 

This is my first post of 2016!!! That’s quite exciting!!! I’ll be writing my new year resolutions and more new year stuff as the week progresses so yeah, keep watch for that XD

Merry Christmas!

Hello everyone!

It’s Christmas!!! (Or at least when you’re reading this unless you read it like next week then…that’s a shame!)

merrychristmashomealone

I want to wish everybody a MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, today should be a day of joy and relaxation and food.

Like I’m going to stuff my face today. I don’t care about weight…not on Christmas! XD

 

I hope you all have an amazing day full of smiles and joy!!!!

Once again Merry Christmas! 🙂

 

(And ignore the gif. You’re not a filthy animal! Unless your name is A Filthy Animal then you technically are…God, I need to stop rambling!)

Tell ‘Em That It’s My Birthday!

Today is a special day because it’s my birthday.

Yay! I’m closer to dying. XD

my birthday

I’m 15 today so that’s fun. So why do I still feel eleven?

I haven’t matured.

In fact, my mum says that the older I get, the more irresponsible I get.

Anyways…I’m getting side-tracked.

It’s was a good day, actually. School started late today so that meant a birthday sleep in. 🙂 No it didn’t. I still woke up at my usual school time. XD

 

I also get to choose the film we are going to watch. Guess what it is?

Inception. 😉

 

Also, I am slightly glad I did go to school because without my friends, it really wouldn’t have been that special! 🙂 Apart from the fact a few of them sang (more like yelled) Happy Birthday at my bus stop, while everyone gave us weird looks. XD That was awkward…

 

It just feels crazy that in three years time, I am going to be an adult. I will legally be able to drink (not that I will) and vote! In one year time, I’ll be able to drive!!! And get pregnant, but I’m certainly not planning on doing that any time soon. XD

 

Also the title of this post is just some lyrics from Selena Gomez’s birthday song.

 

So yeah…I don’t quite know what else to say. 🙂

100 Followers!!!

Gosh, I have no idea how to start this. XD

 

I reached 100 followers!!!!

I still can’t take in that 100 people cared enough to actually click the follow button on my blog!

 

I had no idea I would reach 100 followers, even before the year ended. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d even get past 50.

I can’t even state how happy and amazed I feel!

100 followers is a lot to me, even though it might not be to you.

 

I want to thank every single one of you!!!! Literally, every single one of you are a part of this achievement! And you’ve been such a great support to me!!!  Knowing that people read my blog, from all around the world, makes me feel so amazed and proud to have this blog. It’s also made me a lot more confident in expressing my thoughts and opinions and that’s what I hoped for when I began this blog.

 

It’s like a one week early birthday present. 🙂

 

Once again, thank you so much!!!!! I wish I could link all your blogs in this post but it would take me a while!

 

However, special thanks to:

Planet Shay’s 100th Post Special!

So, I posted something earlier today. It was a crazy theory! And as I posted it, I got a notification saying 100TH POST! So…I put it in a draft so I would still have 99 posts published and this extra special post could be the 100th.

So yeah….

 

So this is my 100th post!!!! 😀

 

So I spent a while contemplating what to do in celebration for my 100th post and decided pinkie pie paryI’m going to do a 30 facts about me (I know it’s usually 50 but I’m going to struggle with 50 xD) because, even though you know quite a bit about me, you don’t know the little “fun (not that  fun)” facts about me!

 

So numero uno (I don’t speak Spanish): I’ve been writing stories since I was five (I’m sure I’ve mentioned that before)

2. I once won 8th out of 60 in a memory competition. And that seemed to lead to being a very forgetful person  XD

3. I’ve been “training” (more like following the things you need to do) to lucid dream for a while now. Just like two/three more years to go -_-

4. I was supposed to be born on Halloween but I was an adventurous foetus and wanted to escape into the world.

5. I actually have a half sister, who died at a very young age before I was born…

6. My first best friend, who was and probably still is amazing, moved house in year one and we used to hang out all the time but the last time I saw her was when I was in year five/six. It’s a sad life 😥

7. My first pets, that weren’t fish, were two rabbits, called Charlie and Lucky. They…died. Well, they might have run away because we found their hutch open and empty.

8. I’m 5 foot and two inches tall.

9. I wrote and finished my first chapter book in year 7. It was rubbish but at least I did it…right?

10. I have a feeling I’ve said this before….but I sneeze or almost sneeze when I see bright lights.

11. At some point, I wanted to be a lawyer.

12. I was once on Christmas Download. They played a montage of kids dancing to Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You on a big screen and I was on it…dancing…with my three other friends. XD

13. My favourite flowers are lilies 🙂

14. The only book that’s ever made me cry is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness.

15. When I was about three, I was so evil and cheeky, I bit people. My cousin, who is a grown man, said he had never felt such a painful bite before. I also put one of my older cousin’s iPhone in his drink. I don’t recall any of those memories…probably for the best.

16. When I was younger, I tried to run away. I remember holding my coat, wearing my pyjamas with my backpack on my back and walking to the door and my dad asking where I was going. I said I was running away and he laughed and suggested he should drive me to the airport and I realised I didn’t know where to go and got scared and went back to my room.

17. People used to call me Boo, when I was little because I had bunches like Boo from Monster Inc. and I always said…Boo. XD I don’t have any recollection of that either but it happened.

18. I used to be a HUGE (and I mean huge) fan of Selena Gomez. I had an obsession…

19. I once sent a message to Cathy Cassidy, who used to be my favourite author ever, and she replied back!!! She was so sweet too! 🙂

20. The first YouTuber I watched, a lot (at first) was StampyLongHead, because my sister told me to, and then I started watching LDShadowLady, Superwoman, Yammy xox and Zoella.

21. I have a small celebrity crush on Nat Wolff. I love his sense of humour. 🙂

22. I hate kiwis.

23. I’ve been watching Friends since I can remember. I know for sure I was younger than five.

24. I had a crazy obsession with rabbits that whenever someone saw a picture of a rabbit or an actual rabbit, they would call me. In fact, I got an award for being a determined bunny explorer, when we went on a week’s school trip in the countryside. The prize was actually a stuffed cat toy. Kind of weird. XD

25. I had braces for about three years. I was only supposed to have them for one/two years, though, because my teeth were already quite straight. I had other issues, though, because I didn’t follow the ‘rules’, properly.

26. Following fact 25, I now hate the dentist and orthodontist!

27. The first time I went to the hairdresser was two years ago.

28. I used to watch Ellen all the time.

29. Autumn is my favourite season.

30. I’m dreading year 10! :0 And I’m going to be in it in two days from now. D:

 

So those were the 30 facts about me! I’d love if you posted some cool facts about yourself! 🙂

And that’s the end of my 100th post special! 😀 I hope the facts thing was a good idea to do because I had no idea what else I could do. XD
