Be thankful

Hey guys

So the past week has not been very fun for me at all! I spent most of my week in a hospital waiting room because my grandfather was in hospital and having all that time makes you think. You can’t do anything else so thinking was bound to happen and I have a new understanding of how much my family means to me…

Ok so firstly, I have come to understand how lucky I am to have 3 grandparents alive and even though my other grandfather is not here with us anymore, I know he is there to protect me and he is always looking over me and I really do hope that he is proud of who I have become. You see, today I got a look at what my life would have been like if I had stayed with the rebel group and let me tell you it did not look very pretty and I am very proud of who I have become. I have my family to thank for that because they have kept me on the right track of life. Well the right track for me anyway. Thank G-D my Oupie is ok now and is at home recovering.

They always say that once you don’t have something, you realise how much you need it. Well let me tell you the past few days I have not been able to speak to my lil sis because of our Jewish holiday but sitting in the hospital I began to think about my life and how much I have and who I have. See I don’t measure wealth from material things but I measure wealth from who you have in your life and how much love you have in your life and what comes with the people in your life. I am the most luckiest person in the world! The reason is simple: I have parents who love me, I have a brother who drives me insane but he always makes me laugh and I love him with all my heart and soul. I have a Shmoobear who gives me feel better juice and grey hairs and I am very proud of her! Then there is my lil sis… It is very hard to sum up how much she has done for me but she is my muse and inspiration. I love her round and round the world and never ever stops

When I am down and don’t know why I am who I am and why I do the things I do, I just need to look at my 3 siblings and then the answer is right there in front of me… I wake up in the morning to say good morning to them and my experiences help me to guide them and having their love and acceptance is what I live for. As corny as that sounds, my family really is my drive and my reasoning at the moment for succeeding in life. At the end of the day, they are always going to be there and friends come and go but my family is my everything. They going to be there when I finish college, they will be sitting next to me when I get married, they will be there for my first child and grandchild and they will be there in the end.

Moral of my shitty week… My family is my everything. You only get one family so try make it work between yours. No-one said that a family is perfect because none are! Every single family have problems but keep the bigger picture in mind… you only have one family and at the end of the day, they have been there for you when you fell off your bike or your first heart break so just because you don’t live with them anymore, doesn’t mean that the bond needs to disappear and break.

Everything can be glued you just have to want to glue it and have the patience to sit and wait for it to dry…



My eyes are wide open now

Hey guys

So my college took over my life for a bit but now I am back and have I got news for you…

So I seem to be getting good at this treatment giving thing. I mean, I have been chosen to work at the annual ProBeauty which is this huge convention whereby all the big brands in our beauty industry put on a show and they show off all their new products and have big sales and I am just so excited to be going there! Not only am I working there but I get to go with my lil sis and my mom as well. So it is going to be lots of fun.

Last week I was very self centred and I did not like it one bit. I put the wrong people first and that did not make me feel very nice… My lil sis decided to turn 18 and get her learners all in a space of a few days. My poor heart cannot handle so much growing up at once but I am very proud of her and she has become an astonishing woman and I am very proud to call her my little sister.

Speaking of sisters, my older two have now got a new little sister and I felt very replaced today when I saw them. I love them a lot but today I felt like I did not really know them because this other chic was going on about how she knows this and that and I’m like oh that is nice… never knew that. Anyway, it really is ok but my eyes are now open to what is important to me in my life at the moment. They still there for me and I promise you all right now that if I had to call them to come and fetch me, they really would.

My school best friend and I don’t talk at all anymore and I am ok with that to an extent. I knew this was coming deep down but I did not want it to happen. Everything happens for a reason and I believe in this 100% People come and go and a few stay. The ones that stay are the ones that will be there when you need them during the bad times not only the good. My family are the people that I need in my life and the rest can come and go. Sometimes I feel as if I am a railway station and trains come and go with new and old people but there are those few who are there always and that is all that I need in my life.

I have been out of school for 8 months now and I am starting a business and working for other people but that doesn’t satisfy me completely. What puts a smile on my face and makes me feel whole is coming home to a family that loves me and going to my lil sis and watching how excited she gets when she gets to paint my nails or plat my hair. Things like that is what makes my life worth living! Not money or how big my room is. Its my family and making people happy and that makes me very proud to be me.

My Pa always used to tell me ” At the end of the day all you really have is your name” Now this is something that he always told me and that is something that I keep with me to this day. At the end of the day, I want to think of me and say that I was good at my job because I made them happy and I want my 3 siblings to think of the good times we have and that when they needed me, I was always there. This is what is important to me and if you not ok with that, well then I am sorry but money means nothing if you don’t have someone to go shopping with.

Have a great weekend

You fall and slip
and hurt your lip.
You trip and bail
and impact on people like hail.

You pour your pixie magic stuff
when I am sad and had enough.
You make me laugh and grin
and make my nose crinkle and spin.

You make me cry with tears of joy
and give me grey hairs cause of a boy!
You motivate me to do better.
You the magic trend setter.

Over all I’m here to tell,
everyone you my Tinkerbell.
I love you forever and always!
(even during bad days)

RAGE 2012

Good evening all my gorgeous viewers!

It has been way too long since I last posted but I was away on my matric vac and let me tell you it is a vacation I will never forget!

1 week of constant party’s. There was no time to stop and breath or even sleep. Over all I think I may have had about 10 hours sleep max. If you get the chance to go on Vac or send your kids, do them or yourself a favour and go! The whole week I spent meeting new people and chilling with old friends.

Truth is the first few days did not seem like it was real. I waited 3 months for this holiday and then it was here and when I was there I could not believe that I had survived matric and had this opportunity of a life time. Yes it had its ups and downs. The up side was I got what I wanted and I got to meet new people and I entered the real world for the first time as a person and not as a school student. Down side was I missed my family a lot! For you see, Umi is a place where me and my lil sis became us. Being there without her was strange. Some with my family. Most of my family live in Durban so being there without my siblings and parents was also strange but I loved every moment of it and I will do it again in a heart beat.

It is hard for me to describe how the partys were but I will try: Picture yourself in a huge hall. Now add 10 000 screaming teenagers. Now add smoke machines, cigarettes, alcohol and music that pierces through your body! That is how they were. As everyone danced, the floor would shake and as the night went on, everyone was sweating but it did not stop anyone from dancing.

The week started off with eager teenagers that lit up the streets with their passion to party and by the end of it we were all on the beach watching the sunrise and eating fast food and then we all just crashed from pure exhaustion. The plane ride home was funny. I cannot sleep during the day eveb if I have had 1 hour sleep. The whole plane was filled with Rage people and every single one of them were fast asleep.

So that was my Rage holiday in a nut shell. It is hard to describe it and I did try my best but truth is you have to experience ti for yourself to realise how mind blowing it really is. Was my first holiday I have had as an “adult” and I hope I have many more just like it.


Little thank you

Are the
Best thing that
Has happened to me
During my high school career.
So….. I wanna say
Thank you angel
Love you


Hey guys

I think it is fair to say that matric has to be one of the biggest roller coasters out there. I mean think about it…. First it takes away your social life. then your friends because they leave to go overseas and before you know it, the year is over! On the up side, matric has shown me who I have become. It has allowed me to grow as a person and I feel like I have learnt more about myself in the past year than I have in a very long time.

It has taught me that I can stand on my own and I can over come a lot in life if I think about it logically and be a ‘clever bitch’ It has shown me that I am always going to find people who want to hurt me and bring me down but I need to hold my head up high and be proud of who and what I am. I have come to understand that with hard work and passion, I can achieve anything I want to in life. I have come to realise that I can have fun and dance in the rain. Sometimes you just have to let go and live in the moment…. After 2 years of hard work( I did not work in grade 10) I won an academic award and as award for First Aid and my service to human kind. When I was called up my heart sank and I did not believe it was my name they were calling out which brings me to my next point… After I got my award the first person I told was my lil sis. She is my rock, my torch, my everything and if it was not for her, I would be the person I am today. School brought her to me and I will always be grateful to my school for allowing me to meet my muse.

Matric is hard make no mistake and it is a year I will never forget… It has its highs such as my matric jersey, being heads of the school, my matric dance and creating ever lasting bonds. It also has its lows, hard work, pressure, pimples, stress and goodbyes…




Follow up from Change

Hello all my gorgeous viewers

A couple of months ago I wrote a post about change and I wrote it to my lil sis… Well I think t is time for a catch up session.

I was right about the work load! I have been on the go since the first day of school and even now during prelims I am working on projects and so on. Truth is I was wrong about something… I thought I would not have time for her at all but I have had time for her. I made sure I did and it has worked out well.

We have changed though but for the better! We are close than we were at the beginning of the year and I am so proud of her with everything she has achieved over the year. My school year is now over and I will not be able to see her at school anymore unless I write that day but even then, we only see each other for 5 minutes. It does suck but using cell phones and technology keeps us together until we find a time where we can sit down and chat.

Change happens to everyone we have just changed together… I love her more and more every single day.

She will be my lil sis for a lifetime




It’s a new week

Good evening everyone!

I am sorry I have not posted. Since my accident, life has been mad but it is a new week with new opportunities.

Can’t complain about life right now. I start a new job tomorrow. I am working for my family. I have to take me cousins to places and so on. This should be fun and I am very excited to do this.

My lil sis left tonight to go overseas. I miss her already but I know she is going to have the time of her life! I love her more every single day. Because she is gone, I am going to keep myself occupied which means lots and lots of writing so sit back and enjoy the posts.

Have a fantastic week guys





Our Year

By:Ashlee Zlotnick

For me or you,to be honest
this year hasn’t been an easy one.
A lot of events have happened
but what is done…is done.

I have lost people,so have you
but we are stronger than ever.
We have both learnt life lessons
and now we are both more clever.

Neither one of us can explain
why we are as close as we are.
All I can say about us is:
we have passed that friendship bar.

Angel, you are more than a friend,
you are like my lil sis.
I will always be here to protect you,
never ever forget that miss!!!
