This isnt the end….

Hey Guys


Its AGirlNamedEgypt and Happy Belated New Year!! 🎉, This is a kinda personal post and I apologise if it’s a little “off” as I don’t really write “personal”posts 😅, I like to share some of my life with you guys on social media BUT I like to keep my blog, like a sanctuary where I don’t have to worry about “problems” in my life, So this post is kind of -2016 in review/thoughts about 2017/ my life-type of mish-mash and warning : It will probably be a bit of a long post as I’m already rambling so ill just move on now…

I’m trying my hardest this year to be more optimistic about the future as I know there will always be future, It’s just up to us as to what that future will be like 💙, I don’t want to ramble too much about it but if you want to read more of my thoughts on the “future” you can check out my Instagram post here BUT I do want to say that it’s very important to be open-minded and to speak out and use your voice 🗣, If you know in your heart that something isn’t right…You have to say something and I really want to use the voice I have here a lot more this year!

I will also be peppering this post with some photos from the last year as a reminder that it wasnt all bad.

Looking Towards 2016 and Looking Back on 2015 Q&A

Hey Guys


Its AGirlNamedEgypt and I’m very happy to say that I’m finally back from my blogging holiday and ready to jump into this new year of posts 🎉🎊💻

I’ve already had so many adventures and my holidays have been so hectic ( In a good way :)) and don’t worry I will be sharing it with you as I have a “Day in the life” styled post that I wrote up in the Holidays that I will be posting some time next month BUT for now I thought a nice Q&A post would be a great to enthuse about this year and look back on the greats of last. ( I do realise I sounded like an old english teacher just then 😶🎓 )

I asked you on my Instagram, Twitter and here for some questions and I also came across a few online, So without further ado – let’s get to the questions

Any New Years Resolutions?

Not necessarily resolutions but more of goals, My main ones are

  1. Improve on my Photography
  2. Write better and more often.
  3. Be more care-free and stop fretting over everything and just HAVE FUN with life
  4. Save up my money ( So I can buy more things that I want, Makeup, Jewellery, Blog Domain , Guitar Hero Live ect. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧  💱💲💰💵💴)
  5. Study More ( In NZ I have to start my NCEA exams next year which is kinda like GCSE’s and stuff for in other countries and it’s quite difficult ¯\(°_o)/¯ )

How did you spend New Years?

I spent New Years with my Brother , Nana & Poppa – We went to the wharf to watch the annual fireworks display and to be honest I think they were the best ones so far ( Not to top the speed way ones which were A-FRICKEN-MAZING 😀 )

What was the single best thing that happened this past year?

I think the best thing that happened last year was when I went on a weekend camp with my girl guide group, It was soo awesome and I made so many new friends ☜(⌒▽⌒)☞  ( I think < that’s probably why my friends think I’m weird when we message talk 😂 )

What was the single most challenging thing that happened?

Probably my Dads remarriage, Even though my parents have been divorced for nearly 3 years and his new wife is nice – It was still difficult for my younger brother and I, Its kinda hard to understand unless your parents are divorced what it feels like when things like that happen ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ .

What was an unexpected joy this past year?

Well another thing that started out quite difficult that I haven’t really said online is that my Dad is having another baby! 😮 

At first It was REALLY difficult for my brother and I as we have been our parents only kids for well a long time and my brother and I are quite close in age and very close to each other, I mean I’m going to be 15 years older than then the baby who I will call “N”.

It’s still challenging and it probably will be a little awkward but deep down It’s still an amazing thing, I mean it’s a new life being brought into this world and its related to me and of course I love kids ( Hence the teacher dream ), I will try to keep you guys updated on things but as it isn’t my child I wont be posting a lot about him as its kinda a personal thing ( Unless my Dad and his Wife say its ok 😉 )

Pick three words to describe this past year.

Challenging , Crazy , Life – Changing

What were the best books you read this year?

  • Girl Online by Zoe Sugg ( You can read more about my thoughts here 0
  • Hercule Poriot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie ( More views here )
  • Touch Series by Laurie Faria Stolarz ( Here )
  • I’m also re-reading Harry Potter which is always the best

What was your single biggest time waster in your life this past year?

Probably procrastinating, I did it way too much last year and It was starting to really affect a lot of things so this year I really want to stop it 😬👊.

Whats something you’re looking forward to this year ?

Even though I hate growing up ( 👶👧👩👵💀👻 ) I’m excited for my 15th birthday, I’m planning on dying my hair around that time and I’m hopefully getting Guitar Hero Live which I’m super excited for and I’m also looking forward to being more active in the blogging community, I joined The Girl Gang and I’m looking forward to taking part in Blogging Chats ( The only downside is that most of the chats are UK time and that means its like 6 am here in NZ lol 😴 )

Well that was the first of – hopefully many Q&A’s for 2016

I hope you enjoyed.

P.S. Oh and I have decided to not use my cute lil anime girl as my icon anymore ( I made the header of this post before I decided that fyi ) so from now on – Welcome to my face 24/7 on social media (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ
