Hayfever

I don’t know how come this is but I have been suffering from very bad hayfever for 3 weeks now. It keeps causing me to have conjunctivitis and giving me a fever, it is making me very sad because I can’t enjoy the nice weather. I have been to the doctors and they were no help I have spent over £30 on tablets, eye drops and nasal sprays in the hopes one will work and I have only found one of each that works to some degree not good enough though.

I live in the UK and this is the first time I have had hayfever this badly. I want to try and help anyone else that is in the same boat as me because I know how rubbish it is. Here is a list of the tablets I have taken and if they worked or not. In bold is the active ingredient the doctor told me to keep trying with different active ingredients.

  • ASDA Hayfever & Allergy Relief Tablets 30 Pack (Cetirizine Hydrochloride)

  • Benadryl Allergy Relief 12S (Acrivastine 8 mg)

  • Boots own Hayfever & Allergy relief 10mg tabets (Cetirizine Hydrochloride)
  • Piriton Allergy Tablets – 30 Tablets (chlorphenamine maleate 4mg)

None of these gave me great results. The ASDA ones did nothing, the Benadryl helped when the pollen count was low but not high, boots ones help and i am on those now. The Piriton made me very ill and i had to stay in bed for two days. I don’t know if it was an allergic reaction, interference with my anti-depressants (Sertraline) or they just didn’t sit well with me.

I am also using Prevalin Allergy Relief Spray link here. This does help for my nose from running and sneezing however it is horrible to use it makes me sneeze every time and doesn’t feel great. 

If you are a fellow sufferer I hope I have helped and that you find something that works for you soon, have a nice day.

Unsure on what to do

My plan to be uploading videos on a weekly basis had fallen apart, it made me sad. I have become super busy at university as I finish in a few weeks time so I have been super busy trying to get my work done but to also spend time with friends and family. Whilst also planning what to do once I finish. As you can imagine YouTube has been the last thing on my list and it makes me sad that, that is the case because I had fun making the videos.  I  do however still have one left which I had recorded a while ago which I can upload soon 🙂

I’m also not sure why I am blogging today I thought it would be a good idea. I feel like I have a lot f things I want to do but never enough time to do it in for example I wanted to learn how to play the guitar but I don’t have time for that now. I also wanted to exercise more but can’t see to be able to find the time to do that and I want a toned body for summer but that plan is out the window now I think :’)

 

Life 

I have come to realise that I really don’t know what I want to do after I finish my second year at university this year. I really don’t want to do another year right now but at the same time I need to finish the rest of my degree, I will have a foundation degree but not a full one which is why I need to finish. 

However I just feel like I have wanted so much of my time at university I haven’t learned much and I have completely lost interest and yet I don’t know what job I would do now as I want it to be something which is well paid so I can have a good future. 

I still really want to pursue a career via YouTube but I keep losing confidence in this area and it sucks because this would be such an amazing career to have.

I did a silly thing

Hi guys, so after uploading my first video with my face it ended up being a disaster, it looked awful and I couldn’t understand why.

After looking online I discovered I had set up my export settings wrong, so I fixed it and it took a very long time to reexport and upload to YouTube again. However I now have a video I can be proud of 🙂 I just feel so silly for not seeing the problem before.

I really cannot wait to edit my next video, hope you are having a great day thanks for ready 🙂 

My YouTube channel is now up and running

Hi there, so if you don’t already know I started to plan creating a YouTube channel and well now it’s a thing. I now have a channel called lilblackfox and I am loving every minute of it. Due to the fact I only have two videos and I am still really new I have no subscribers or anyone watching my videos.

Which is a bit meh which is why I am blogging about it to maybe reach out to people who would be interested in my channel and getting to know me and that kind of stuff 🙂

When I was recording my videos I surprisingly had so much fun I expected it to be much more nerve racking and well weird as I don’t talk to cameras very often haha, but yeah I had fun.

So, I would love for you to check out my channel and if you do watch a video please leave a comment so that I know what I can do better/ what you liked.

Thank you 😀

My newest video

Drawing anime style

I have decided that I am going to stick to drawing in an anime kind of style as this is what I seem to be picking up more easily than anything else and it is also really cute which makes me like it even more. 

Unfortunately I haven’t been able to practice today because I’ve had a super busy house and it’s a bit of a downer as I really want to practice and come up with ideas for what to vlog about, it’s so exciting being able to plan for a YouTube channel in the hope a small group of people will enjoy watching me and what I talk about/ do. 

Practising first video

The last few days I have been recording myself making my first video to try and get a feel for talking to a camera and the first few takes were so cringy it was awful, after a couple more tries I finally got to a point were I was talking more fluently and not stopping and starting because I have no idea what to say and because I feel weird. I am still so scared about my mum coming in and thinking that I am a complete weirdo haha (she doesn’t know that I want to start a channel just yet).

However out of all of the things I need to practise before I can make a good video I am having to really focus on my facial expressions because they currently don’t look good, watching myself back I look so scared and sad, there is no way I will succeed if I cannot fix this but I also don’t want it to look like I am forcing those expressions.

I plan to practise talking to the mirror when I have a free house so I can work out straight away what I am doing wrong, I think this will be easier than watching it back on a video because when I do that I focus on how embarrassing it is to watch them rather than thinking of what I can do to fix the problem.

My boyfriend also encouraged me to practise my drawing this week as well and I drew my first bow which I was proud of and I also drew me and him together which didn’t turn out great he looks stoned and I look very very shocked. It is a great improvement from how my drawings have looked in the past which to me is an accomplishment and I was surprised that the drawing of me actually got likes on Instagram it gave me a little confidence boost.

I think that does it for this entry, I hope you enjoyed it and have a great day.

 

 

 

Introduction

Hi there, I am lilblackfox. This is my first ever blog so I apologise in advance if it isn’t all too great. To keep things nice and brief I am a university student studying computing it is pretty fun but I have been doing it for many years now and it feels more like a chore than something I enjoy so I have decided to not continue studying and spending the next year or so being more creative by having this blogging, starting a YouTube channel, learning how to draw, practising web development and hopefully getting better at photography.
