What’s in a name…

In today’s society there are so many different names, I mean there was before but now…it’s as if people are getting a bit too adventurous with choosing names for their children. Names that we didn’t even class as people’s names before. Like Apple and North and even Ransom (yes like a ransom note). I’m not saying this is necessarily a bad thing…but when it comes to me choosing names, I think I’ll be more inclined to go with some ‘standard’ baby names.

I’m not sure whether this is because of my name being quite a generic name or not. My first name is Natalie, and my middle name is Jane. Quite simple and popular names. The amount of people who have Jane as a middle name in England! Oofft there’s a lot, trust me. But I really don’t mind. I like my name. I like having a middle name too, just for the fact that if I didn’t have one my initials alone would be NO. Which isn’t bad until your signing an agreement and it looks like you don’t agree to any of it…Awkward.

Anyway each to their own…

Holiday…

Today’s challenge was ‘think of any word, type it into google and then write something inspired about the 11th image’.This image is shown above.

Like a lot of things in life, some words come with a set image or even stigma. The word holiday is no exception. When people mention a holiday the first thing that pops into your head is somewhere warm, sunny, relaxing with the sea out in front of you and a drink in hand. That’s why I don’t class Iceland as a holiday…more of an adventure, whenever someone brings it up. I’ve only been to Iceland this year, and with everyone posting photo’s of their holidays now…it sucks.

I want to go on holiday. Correction…I want to go on a warm holiday! I need sun! Sometimes I like to blame my eczema for needing a holiday because the vitamin D and the sea water is good for it…but really it’s just because I like to escape England and enjoy the warmth and freedom. Anyway…I’m off to book a holiday!!!
