    1. I brushed my hair.

    2. I ate lamb.

    3. I went to sleep at a reasonable time.

    4. I wore my retainer all night even if it hurts a lot. :(

    5. I didn't count any calories at all.

    6. I didn't swear at all.

    7. I opened up about my eating worries (even if I told Childline instead of my parents.)

    8. I had some me time.

    Travelled by mini cab alone for the 1st time. I feel a bit scared though but it is normal as I don't know the driver.

    I did an absolutely amazing narrative account about the French Revolution. It looks very impressive to me based on the fact that I an only in year 8 and I am absolute pants at history. Here it is: 

    On May 5th 1789, King Louis XVI called forth the Estates General for the first time in a long time. This features the clergy, the noblemen and the rest of France together. On June 17th 1789 after being removed from the Estates General, the third estate formed the National Assembly. Then they swear an oath to the Tennis Court that they would not leave. This is why this key event is called the Tennis Court Oath. On July 14th 1789, angry revolutionaries stormed the Bastille. By doing this it does not only just serve to make a statement against the monarchy but the mob also managed to attain weapons and gunpowder that were kept in the prison. This is why this key event is called Storming of the Bastille. On 26th August 1789, The Declaration of the Rights of Man is written and states that all men are equal under the law. However, women and children were not affected by this document. This key event was called Declaration of the Rights of Man. On October 5th 1789, Parisian market women lead a march on Versailles to protest about scarcity and the high price of bread. This key event was called March on Versailles. On July 12th 1790 the Civil Constitution of the Clergy is published which allowed the government control of the Church. Because money was desperately needed, the government began to sell church land. This key event was called Civil Constitution of the Clergy. On 20th June 1791, King Louis XVI and his family attempted to flee from France but they were caught at Verannes. Then they are sent back to Paris and the king gets forced to go on trial. This key event is known as the Royal Family attempts to flee. On 21st January 1793 the king gets executed by the guillotine after being put on trial. Between September 1793 and July 1794 thousands of people are sentenced to death by execution. This is caused by conflict between two political parties- the Jacobins and the Girondins. Maximilien, the leader of the Jacobins, arises as the new leader of the Revolution. On 27th July 1794, Maximilien Robespierre, leader of the Jacobins was executed and the power of the Jacobins fell with him. Due to his execution, The Girondins gained more power. This narrative account was based on a timeline of 10 key events of the French Revolution. I found most of this information on https://www.preceden.com/timelines/32587-french-revolution-10-key-events-timeline. I used the information from this website and put it into my own words (or I at least tried to.)

    Today I found out at the orthodontist that I only need to wear my retainer part time. The orthodontist and consultant said that I have done such a good job with my retainer and dental hygiene.

    I gave up a seat on the bus for a disabled elderly person. He was so grateful and I feel so good I did a good thing.

    Just this week I have walked 15 miles. It sounds exhausting but that is nothing compared to what I do on an average week.

    Monday- 5.36 miles
    Tuesday- 5.66 miles
    Today- 4.09 miles
    Total= 15.11 miles

    Average per day= 5.03 miles

    Last week:

    Monday- 3.65 miles 
    Tuesday- 3.66 miles
    Wednesday- 2.7 miles
    Thursday- 2.92 miles
    Friday- 3.4 miles
    Saturday- 3.9 miles
    Sunday- 3.53 miles
    Total- 14.85 miles
    Average per day= 2.12 miles (not bad)

    Well I know it was less but that is still quite good. This month I have done 78.05 miles and 182,671 steps (average of 8303 per day.)

    I started a petition about an issue I care about, and emailed my MP asking their stance and what they will do to support their constituents' views, and can't wait to see where (if anywhere) the notion will go next!

    I got an assist in my ice hockey game today and it helped us win which qualified is for playoffs. I'm super proud and happy because even though I play on high level teams, I'm not really a player that puts up many points and to put up a point in a do or die game feels amazing!

    Yesterday I reached a new goal whilst doing my physio. I managed to stand up without help or even holding onto a table and walk without pain at all. :) I have struggled with walking without pain for a couple of weeks so I am trying physio to see if it will help and at the moment it is.

    Just trying to think positively about when I go back to cycling. I don’t want to be nervous every time a veichle reverses. So I’m listening some positives 

    it could of been worse. I didn’t get hurt badly 
    grateful for bystanders that helped out.
    damage could of been worse both in terms of bike and injury. at least I know what to do if a similar situation was to happen again (although I hope not).  
    Most other times I’ve been hit I have avoided it by managing to stay up right or counterbalancing which shows I have great bike handiling skills) just was unfortunate with Saturday 
    I’m aware of blind spots of all vehicles.

    my star sign horoscope always seems right lol (I’m picies)
