Meet Hollie – An Introduction

For a while now I’ve been thinking about letting Hollie do a monthly feature here on the blog, she’s a very opinionated young lady who has views on all sorts of things that are going off in the world. I also thought it might be interesting for people to read things from a teenagers view, its pretty cool at times. I might live to regret this but here we go everyone meet, Hollie…

Hi I’m Hollie I’m 14 years old and live with the crazy family you’ve probably all seen here on my mum’s blog…

I didn’t really approve of my mums blog when she first started writing it as I thought it was quite “cringe” however throughout the last few months I’ve seen her write, I’ve watched her share her thoughts and now its become a little part of her happiness. I admit it has grown on me and I really do enjoy her writing her blogs, for her to get to share her thoughts, ideas, days out or even her personal life.

I’d consider my mum more of my best friend, she helps me with a lot of situations I go through in my life… Whether that’s school related, friend related or even what outfit looks best. My mum is a very pragmatic person, she listens and understands she won’t talk back to you and she is fair. I’m an ambivalent character, just like all teenagers are, but she will love me and care for me no matter what I do. She’s still embarrassing though, because all mums are and that’s the law.


I currently attend a school in a fairly small area, I started off quite unbalanced but over time everything has seemed to slip into place now, I do have mishaps here and there but I always seem to learn from them as hard as that can be sometimes. Even though the school is small I feel it works best for me as I’ve honestly found my feet there and grown as a person. I have some great teachers who understand me and I enjoy school really.

I recently made a choice of my options at school and my timetable changed completely, it will also change again once I go into year 10 but I can honestly say the current change is amazing. I’ve now made my choices and I have chosen R.E (philosophy and ethics), Drama, Geography and Art as well as the core subjects. I really hope this stops me from being late but I can’t help it, I just love my bed and the voice of my mum in the mornings.

Love a good rave whether that’s at a festival with my family or in a field with my mates in the summer, music is my life, spotify is my best friend and extremely lucky to of seen so many of my favourite artists live and been to Glastonbury. Massive Vampire Diaries  fan and my life will never be the same now it has ended.

I’m looking forward to writing more blog posts about everything, but I hope for now that gave you a little look into who I am.

    This is fab when I started blogging my kids thought oh no dad please but nowadays I know my two eldest daughters read it most days oh how times change #tweensteensandbeyond


  2. Love it! Great to get a bit of insight into the head of a teenager!
    Hey Hollie. I don’t suppose you’d be willing to participate in my #BossGirlFriday blog series? An interview series with girls from everywhere! If you’re interested, there’s more info at
    Would love it if you wanted to be part if it. (Gemma, I hope you don’t mind me asking!). 🙂

  3. Oh great idea Hollie! My girls felt the same about my blog too when I started but have become more accepting. You’d get on famously with them too – they are still mourning the end of Vampire Diaries – proper tears! Oh and spotify all the way! Interestingly, I’ve got some poems from s friend’s teen that I was going to publish on the blog – it’s good to hear what teens really think! #TweensTeensBeyond.

  5. This is such a lovely post and it is great to hear about the person behind the great philosophical mind. She is exactly the same age as my daughter, equally a massive Vampires Diaries fan so it will be interesting to compare how they both progress through the next stage with the GCSE’s. Thanks for joining us again Gemma. #TweensTeensBeyond

  6. Lovely to hear from Hollie herself. I think my girls are still a bit unsure about my blog but see that it makes me happy so they put up with it! Great to see your enthusiasm for your chosen subjects, this is one of the big rights of passage – deciding what you want to learn. Thanks so much for joining us at #TweensTeensBeyond, it’s great to have you.
