Seventeen years and I'm still clueless. 

But seriously, now that I am seventeen, I actually feel older. You know every other year when you turn an age and your like 'what happens now? I don't feel any different than I did yesterday'? Well, that didn't happen to me this year. I genuinely felt older. 

Life has been handing over a whole lot of crazy recently. And yes, there is a list. 



Teachers seem to have taken a fond liking to scheduling tests, exams, internals, projects all around the same time. It is as if they think we all only take their one subject and that their one subject takes priority. 

Well, do I have news for them. We can't handle it. We don't like it. We don't like you. We don't like anything much for that matter. So yeah, just stop.


Being seventeen, I don't know why, but I feel like I can do a lot more than I used to be able to. I feel like I can just leave home without telling anyone what I am doing, where I am going or when I will be home. It's kind of fantastic. I don't think I have ever felt so independent - the number 1 and 7 mesh really well together. 


I have never been the type of gal that likes to run. Running and I are pure enemies. Correction: Enemies with a capital E. But … we're working on it. We started with baby steps - literally - and now we are up to teenage leaps. Who knows, soon it might be adult gallops in a half marathon. 

Wait. Did I just say half marathon? God, I need to tone it back a level - let's start with a 2k marathon. But yes, running and I have been to counselling and we kind of like each other now. Kind of. 


Music has also been a part of my crazy month of being seventeen. Our relationship has gone from 16 years of dating. To 1 month of marriage. Never too often do I find myself holding random, unescorted dance parties around the house with my favourite songs - discovered via youtube and spotify. Just so that you can feel the love too, listen to this and this


Just to emphasise my earlier point, I will say it again. School is just too much. I have waaay to many internals on right now. Why!?


All in all being seventeen has been fun. Stressful at times, but yeah, fun's the word of the moment. However feeling older doesn't mean becoming any less clueless. So don't work up a sweat, I might be 17 now but I still don't have a clue. 

Love Charlotte. X

  2. Hi Jessy, the boots aren't actually mine, they are Betty's (the stylist for the shoot). So I am really sorry but I don't know where they are from. Sorry I couldn't be more of a help! X
