It's the end of another week! To be honest, this week absolutely flew by! One minute it was the Bank Holiday Monday, now it's Saturday. I guess time flies when you're having fun (and working) Just to let you all know, I only have TWO weeks of my summer job, then I'm back in school. It's scary how quickly my time was up there.
So, I've started to record/film a video every week which you can see here! My channel is called AwkwardAveen and I post videos about my week & life in general, it's the same as my blog but you have the opportunity to hear my voice, not just see words on a screen. I hope doing this will bring more life to my blog and more of an opportunity to connect to all of you. I'd love to know more bloggers.
LINK TO MY YOUTUBE VIDEO AAH!
On Friday night I took part in a teenage bloggers chat organised by Gaby, Jane and my friend Grace! It was a great success, we discussed the pro's and cons of being a teenage blogger and I met/tweeted some lovely fellow bloggers! It was a good way to unite all the Irish & UK bloggers. So a HUGE thank you to all you brilliant people.
As I've been feeling a little artistic (something which never happens) I also re-designed the cork board in my room, added some new photos and re-arranged the entire thing. I really like what I did with it, it describes my personality very well, obsessed with quotes, London, books, danisnotonfire, Converse, danisnotonfire. Oops did I say danisnotonfire twice? ;) Well I love it, it's right beside my mirror and right beside my door so it's the first thing you see once you walk into my room.
John Green book update! I FINISHED PAPER TOWNS. Repeat, AVEEN FINISHED PAPER TOWNS. I didn't enjoy it as much as The Fault In Our Stars and Looking for Alaska, it just didn't have that addictive trait those books possess. It was well written like all of his books, however just not my favourite. Next I'll be reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson and then I'll be reading Delirium which I'm quite excited about.
After work one day I went into my local supermarket and discovered my name on a Coke Zero bottle! It's a different spelling of my name (Aoibhinn) which I don't mind seeing as on my birth cert it's spelt ''Aoibhainne'' not Aveen! (Sssh, most people don't know that) so my name causes a lot of controversy as there are so many ways to spell it (Aveen, Aoibhinn, Aoibheann, Aoibhainne) I still haven't quite forgiven my parents for spelling it Aoibhainne! I really like the spelling Aveen and Aoibheann the most I think. So I was thrilled with finding my name on a Coke bottle as most of my friends had long ago found their own names and I hadn't, until now! Muwahaha
My Mum also bought my One Direction gel pens! 1D are my guilty pleasure to listen to so I was thrilled! I also have an obsession with gel pens which spawns from my childhood when I had a tin full of them and I would arrange the pens into ''families'' based on what colour ink they had. I sound like such an OCD person right now. *hums One Direction*
Also, I'd like to say a special thank you to everyone reading my blog, yesterday I hit 5,000 page views! This means so much to me seeing as I only started properly blogging in around late March and I had literally no views so thank you all for sticking with my random updates of insanity! I really appreciate it x

Zoomed in photo of my corkboard, love it.
A photo of my wall beside my door. The painting was done by my granddad who sadly passed away a few years before I was born. It's of a local beach and surrounding area. I've been told it's from the 1960's or so. There's a funny story of how I came to possess the painting! :)
Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless!
Ps, I'll be posting a link to my latest video once it uploads! x
