Chapter of Confidence Tag
Huge thanks to Hailey from "Sunshine & Rain" for creating this tag! Hailey created this it to share her struggles with self-esteem and help others who may be going through the same thing. You can read her blog post all about it here.
Now here are the rules of the tag:
How much do you value yourself? One tip that I try to remember when it comes to self-esteem is to never compare yourself to others. Everyone is on their own journey, and you only need to focus on your own. Your attitude towards yourself should not be relative to others. It's important to note that everyone has their ups and downs, meaning that self-esteem is not fixed. You can test for it and improve upon it.
Here are 10 tips to improve your attitude towards yourself:
1. Spend time with people who lift you up
2. Giveback by helping others
3. Celebrate your achievements, no matter the size
4. Do what makes you happy
5. Change what you can – and let go of what you can’t
6. Let go of perfectionism ideals
7. Speak to yourself like a friend
8. Get involved in extra-curricula’s
9. Own your uniqueness
10. Create a positive self-dialogue.

If you're like me, the school holidays guarantee boredom. Here are some things to keep you occupied instead of Netflix.
1. Make jewelry
Making bracelets, necklaces and rings has kept me occupied for hours. More recently, I made a few pairs of earrings and they don't look bad, if I don't say so myself.
2. Make a blog
Blogging is a good way to be productive during the holidays (trust me, I've been doing this for 3 and a half years). It's free and you don't need to know how to code. You can blog literally anything you want, whether it be book reviews or DIYs. And your website doesn't have to be about only one thing, you can blog about any hobbies and interests you have.
There's plenty of platforms to choose from: Weebly, Wix, Blogger, Squarespace, Wordpress and more. Choose one that suits you needs. And who knows, maybe you'll make a profit out of it.
3. Contribute to a wiki
Got a favourite book, show, movie or game? There's probably a wiki on www.wikia.com for it. If not, you can make your own. Fandom is a website that hosts thousands of wikis that anyone can edit. I'm currently the admin for the Ruby Redfort Wikia and Friday Barnes Wikia. You can collaborate with other users with the same interest and share your knowledge about the things you love.
4. Read a book or graphic novel
Even if you don't like reading, there's a book or commic for everyone. Don't know what to read? Use www.whatshouldireadnext.com to decide what to read next. If you're not keen on going to the library or buying a book, there are plenty sites where you can read e-books or webcomics for free. Click here to head to the Books and Comics page.
5. Make an app
Now I have to admit, I've never tried this before, but it seems like an interesting thing to do...
6. Write a diary
Writing a diary is a good way to document what you do each day. If you don't feel like writing it down, there are always diary apps you can use. Your daily entries don't need to be long; just a few lines summing up your day and how you felt about it.
7. Make a scrapbook
Now this is something I've been doing for a while and it's really easy. I usually paste cutouts from leaflets about places I've been and glue it my scrapbook. I really like decorating it with stickers and, of course, washi tape; that's probably what I like about it the most.
8. Make a YouTube video
It could be about anything you want, from a DIY tutorial or review of something. Learning how to edit a video is easy with iMovie or other apps, websites or softwares. Click here to go to my channel.
9. Do a craft
A lot of crafts don't take too much time or require a lot of materials. Try your hand at origami or other paper crafts and see how you go! Click here to go to the Art and Craft page. Click here to see my older craft posts.
10. Take a photo
All you need is a phone. Go to your backyard or go for a walk and you'll see plenty of things to photograph. Even something as simple as a stone can look nice in a photo and there are many apps you can use to edit, filter and fine-tune your photo to get the desired effect.
11. Learn to code
There are heaps of websites that offer free coding courses, but the best place to start is code.org/. Here you will learn the absolute basics of coding in a fun and engaging way. If you enjoyed that, try Khan Academy's computer programing course and expand your skills on Scratch. And maybe one day, your knowledge will come to good use!
Got anything else to add to the list? Comment below.
Haikus are a type of Japanese poetry consisting of three lines. The first line has five syllables, the second has seven and the third has five syllables. Traditionally, they are based on nature (e.g. seasons, ocean).
I really like making haikus for some reason, so here are some of mine.

When making slideshows , I like to add GIFs to them to make my slideshows a little more interesting. But at school, a lot of the popular GIF websites like giphy.com and gif-finder.com are blocked, so I use tenor.com, which is as good as any other GIF website, if not, better.
Have more cool unblocked websites? Tell me in the comments.
