Project Plan: Example

What is the obstacle?
My area of study for this article will be stress and the problems following it.

What is the solution?

Through your own motivation and personal skills, with the additional help of friends or experts. With my guidance, to slowly but surely resolve your angst.

Why have you chosen this solution? (Based on  your experience or external source)

Through personal experience, I have endured periods of stress and have coped with it all in the same way. Take a step back, review your situation and deal with it methodically.

Summary of your article in one short paragraph (50 to 100 word) (curious, inviting, concise)

If you’re stressed, feel the pressures of social living and desperately need an intermission, I can assure you that you’re not alone. Every day, we are exposed to the debatable and controversial material, the workplace and school environments are large contributors to the amounts of stress we experience.

With previous experience as a personal mentor, I have great skills with mental well-being; I know how to guide you if you’re struggling. This article is targeted at a dedicated, self-driven audience that hopefully wants to succeed as much as myself. It’s all about dealing with the stress in a healthy, organised way.

 

Street Fashion: Alexa Chung

Evolutionary Television Presenter
Alexa Chung- A short biography

Alexa Chung, a 33-year-old Television presenter born in Privett, Hampshire was scouted to be a model at Reading festival when she was only 16. Because of this, she managed to then model for teen magazines, such a Elle Girl and CosmoGIRL, also working for companies including Fanta, Sony Ericsson and Urban Outfitters. Alexa Chung appeared in many music videos of pop artists, featuring West Life and Holly Valance.

To reprimand the modelling industry, Chung pursued an Art Foundational Fashion Journalism course. Amidst this, in 2005, Chung developed a more refined image and became a TV personality. Eventually, Chung quit modelling due to a distorted body image and low self-esteem. During the time between 2008 and 2015, Chung modelled for fashion icons such as DKNY, Lacoste, Stella McCartney, Pepe Jeans and Tommy Hilfiger.

Chung’s Fashion Sense

Whether it be street, catwalk, casual or accessory style Chung can throw together an outfit and successfully captivate the media with her designs. Here, her Acne Jacket compliments her double-cut ankle skirt, paired with a below-the-knee laced leather boot, squared off at the toe. To sport this look with simple hair was a wise idea, as it’s clear all of the attention should be on her attire.

Street Style  

With an Acne Jacket lined with fur and a leather finish, this look is perfect for the street. A dark, grungy colour palette is essential for casual paparazzi on the streets. With Chung, it’s clear that her grunge side dominates her more perky side, with most of her street looks consisting of dark, grungy gothic themed attire. With her couture sensibly combined, Alexa Chung’s street style is captivating and it can’t go wrong. Knowing that she can rock anything, I’m sure she has found confidence in what she’s wearing… 24.7.

Chung channels outfits that otherwise wouldn’t at all go together…

High Street fashion

Alexa can string together a wardrobe without fail. In this instance, a high street 2000’s look has gone down a treat. Alexa has paired flares with square-toed loafers, a much admired look from the early 2000’s. Alongside not drawing much attention to her blouse, she chose to fashion a plain grey blazer, to contrast the denim flares and loafer pumps. Once again, styling this look with a plain hairstyle is essential; providing more attention to be paid to the outfit itself, rather than her hair. Plain chic beach waves remain beautiful in and out of fashion trends, and I’m sure we appreciate that as much as we appreciate Alexa herself.  With a high demand on progressive style, Alexa lays down the rules in this high street outfit, as she tours London.

 

How I Re-write: Example

‘Book of secrets’ first paragraph rewritten:

A shocking revelation- Diana had predicted her own death. Diana was aware that there was a plot, and that there were people set out to end her life. The gruelling account of Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Al-Fayed, is about to unfold.

The original paragraph:

If you were not already aware, Princess Diana had predicted her own death. She knew about the plot to murder her in a car accident. The story of Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed is about to unfold.

15 People That Make Us Want To GTFO This Planet!

1. Donald Trump
He puts the ‘panic’ in Hispanic. Donald J. Trump! The ‘J’ must stand for ‘genius’ because
Trump’s policies following his election as president of America have not settled well with many.
Let me rephrase- anybody that isn’t a white evangelist.
Since Trump won his ‘Make America Great Again’ campaign back in 2016, which was the 58th
Quadrennial American presidential election, Trump’s not been knowin’ how to act. Trump has
been blocking celebs with frequency and vigour. He’s blocked a silly amount of people (yes, the
president of America blocking people!) On the morning of June 13th, Trump blocked
@VoteVets, a group representing over 500,000 veterans. Not long after, he blocked the novelist
@StephenKing.
BUT, a federal judge expressed scepticism about whether Donald Trump can constitutionally
block Twitter users whose views he does not like from following and retweeting on his account.
Real mature, Donald!

Stress: The cons… and cons.

Stress and how to overcome it: An article written by Kaitlyn Pibernik

Stress: The cons… and cons.

If there is any upside to stress, it’s that you learn how not to cope with it in the future. Any kind of stress is difficult to overcome but I know we can do it together.

My Story And How You Can Relate:

I’m Kaitlyn Pibernik, and I’m a freelance writer from England. Obviously, I have experienced all kinds of stress. Be it mild due to smashing a glass, or losing someone close to me, I have lived and learned. Writing can be stressful, but I choose to do it because of the praise I get and with that the rewarding outcome. I have absolutely put my all into what I love and have absolutely been stressed once or ten times… I know, for sure, that I can write my thoughts and feelings and make you feel just a little more motivated.

Your Story

I don’t know you, but I  know how stress works. We’re all wired the same. We’re all human, and we all respond to stress the same way. It wears us out, tires us, stresses us out… I know how to fix it. From personal experience, I can help you.

Did you know that too much stress could result in physical problems, like heart disease, chest pain, high blood pressure, and an irregular heartbeat? You may think ‘Nah, that wouldn’t happen to me. I’m healthy,’ but truthfully, no matter how healthy you are, no matter how good your diet and exercise routine is, you will see the effects of stress on your body if you let it consume you. In 2015, about two in five adults (39 per cent) report overeating or eating unhealthy foods in the past month due to stress, compared to 33 per cent in 2014.

How To Cope With Your Stress

We need to do this systematically. You don’t need to follow all of this advice, I know that everyone is different. Whatever works for you. But just follow the subheadings, and you’ll find what fits best with how you deal with things.

 

  • Things To Look Out For

 

Watch your mental health. Seriously. It’s completely understandable how you can get swept up in work, school, college, uni and not notice that you’re not yourself. You can subconsciously go to sleep later, wake up later, not eat as healthily as normal, or not drink as much. Maybe drink too much.

Symptoms such as wrinkles by the eyes, dry mouth, tiredness, fatigue, irritability, anger, constant crying, palpitations and more can mean you’re under too much stress. Please, for yours and your surrounding associates’ sake, please seek professional help if you notice these things. Stress can lead to depression, which the symptoms are the same with a few more thrown into the mix. Research everything, and SEE A GP.

 

  • Socialise; Don’t Alienate Yourself Or Become Solitary.

 

We completely know it’s hard. It’s so understandable. I’ve been there, I know how it is. You feel tired, you feel hungry and thirsty but you don’t want to go outside. How about set alarms? Move your alarm across the room, so you get up. Set yourself interesting tasks to complete, so your day is more fun. Have a healthy breakfast, compliment your family and say good morning. Talking is better than being quiet. Don’t fake a smile and tell people when something is wrong. If you don’t know if they’ll listen, talk to them about it. Something like ‘hey, I’m not sure I’m feeling so good. Can we talk about it please?’ and they’ll definitely say yes. When you’re with your friends, interest yourself in their activities. Ask questions, maybe if they’re feeling stressed. Maybe they’re experiencing the same issue as you?

 

  • Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

 

So, like me, you probably like baths. And showers. Hot ones. They’re an amazing way of relieving stress, loosening up the tense muscles in your body and making you feel comfortable. Submerging your head (up to your ears) in the water, closing your eyes and rubbing them with warm soapy water. It’s an instant stress-reliever and it’s an amazing process. Isn’t is amazing how water can relax you so much? How about you throw in a bath bomb, they’re cheap and they smell amazing. They have herbs and minerals specialised in relaxing the body. Truly a heaven send. Submerging your body in a warm (not hot) bath can be psychologically soothing. Scandinavians take plunges in cool water after time in a sauna, while the Roman love for baths gave birth to huge bathing complexes with under-floor heating and a range of temperatures, some of which are still standing today.

You’re not on your own. Definitely, and you can certainly get help. Consult your local GP if you have symptoms of depression, anxiety or other health problems caused by stress. Even if you’re uncertain, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

So, in conclusion… Stress isn’t good.

Throughout my life, I have been sad, and I’ve had a lack of motivation. I’ve gotten in from a hard day, had more work to do afterwards but then have just slept through it all.

If you’re stressed, feel the pressures of social living and desperately need an intermission, I can assure you that you’re not alone. Every day, we are exposed to the debatable and controversial material, the workplace and school environments are large contributors to the amounts of stress we experience.

With previous experience as a personal mentor, I have great skills with mental well-being; I know how to guide you if you’re struggling. This article is targeted at a dedicated, self-driven audience that hopefully wants to succeed as much as myself. It’s all about dealing with the stress in a healthy, organised way. I’ve run late on deadlines, late to class, late to meetings (or maybe have missed one or two) but in the long term I have genuinely learned from it.

You learn to wake up half an hour earlier, or you learn how to spend less time in the shower (even if you love your time in the shower). I know how nice it is to have a long bath at night but I also love the feeling of having enough sleep. It’s about finding a healthy midpoint in which you are happy and your outcomes are almost always positive.

Paint a picture in your mind of yourself. A self-portrait, but annotated. Draw branches from yourself with every goal and aim you want to achieve. Listen to music, get yourself in the mood. Maybe even draw this image on a pad, and colour it in. It’s all about what works for you. Do you want to be a writer? Do you want to be an artist, musician, receptionist, professional bicycle rider? Elephant tamer? Do you have the motivation for it? Are you stressed? Please, trust me, it gets better.
