Happy Holidays TGs!

by Jess | Dec 16, 2015

Hey guys!


It’s your pal Jess here again!


I hope you’ve all been awesome. It’s been super busy here in the TG office making another great issue for you guys to read!


I love this time of year because alllllll the holidays are pretty close together – can you believe it’s almost Christmas already?! I swear the year went soooooo fast!

Speaking of Christmas, what are you guys hoping to get?

I really want to get some cool rings or a necklace – I love fun and weird looking jewellery! I also saw some really cool dog collars I want to get my three dogs – they get so spoiled at Christmas! Last year my parents got them each a Christmas stocking full of dog treats and they were so happy that they gobbled them down in like one minute!

I also love the holiday season coz I get to hang out with my dogs more often and get to do fun things with my friends, like go to the beach and hang out.


What are you guys excited to do at the end of the year? It’s fun to think of all the cool things you can do with all that extra time!


Speak soon friends!

    This year has been AMAZING! I've made heaps of friends and learnt lots of stuff! I'm excited to go Christmas shopping with my BFFs, eat delish food on Christmas Day, and set myself goals for next year!  Btw, I hope I get an iphone5s and LOADS of books!

    Hey Lovato! Thanks for all your comments to us BTW, always good to see regular TGers! I'm so glad you've had an amazing year, that's so awesome! OMTG - the food on Chrissy day is so good. What's your fave Chrissy food? Mine would probs be prawns or Christmas ham. I'd love to get a new phone (I accidentally dropped mine LOL) and I LOVE books too - I think my brother is getting a book for me for Christmas, so I'm super excited for that! Hope you have the best Chrissy. Jess x

    Hey Jess my name is Tahlia.

    i am just replying to your blog about you and your dog at Christmas. i have just finished at my school and i am now moving to another school for year 8 next year. it was really hard leaving my friends and going to a new environment. i have read loads of books sand surfed the web to try and calm myself down about moving.
    Do you think you could help me?

    i am hoping to get a new bag, makeup and anything to do with stationary or basketball. Basketball is my passion. the reason i am moving is to pursue my dream to become a professional basketball player and one day play for Australia. i know these are pretty big dreams considering i am only 12 years old.

    i am new to TG but i am really enjoying it so far cant wait to see some more of your blogs!!

    Thanks heaps i would really like to know what you have to say and i would like to hear some answers to my questions.

    Xx Tahlia :)

    Hey Tahlia,
    I’m so happy you enjoy the blog! 

    Before I give you my advice, I just wanna say if you're still worried about this then I defs recommend speaking to and adult you trust, or even give the Kids Help Line a buzz on 1800 55 1800 (I used to call them for advice when I was your age - they're super lovely and very helpful!)

    That’s really cool that you’re passionate about basketball! I know lots of people who at your age had big dreams and have now achieved them, like one of my friends who wanted to be a pilot his whole life, and now he is! That just proves you can totally do anything you set your mind to, no matter how big or small your dream is.

    Starting out somewhere new is always a scary thing. Trust me, I still get really nervous meeting new people! 
    I can defs tell you though that once you’re there you’ll have nothing to worry about. Don’t be afraid to approach people at your new school and talk to them – whether it’s in class or at lunch time, or wherever.
    I’m sure people will be super excited about having a new girl at school and will be dying to meet you and hang out! 

    Are you playing basketball for the school? If so, have a chat to some of the girls in your team. Since you guys already have a common interest it should break the ice pretty easily.

    I find that the easiest way to make a new friend is to compliment them – something as simple as, “You have really nice hair!” or “I love your cute pencil case” can really brighten up someone’s day (plus they’ll know that you’re a nice person, too!)
    Our Feb issue of TG (coming out Jan) has some awesome tips on making new friends, so you should defs check it out! I think it would help a lot.

    As for getting some cute accessories and a school bag for your new school, I’ve just had a chat to our fashion guru Kristy – she said that the shops Kikki K, Cotton On Kids and our friends at Best and Less have a bunch of awesome things we think you’d love!

    Best of luck with your new school; just remember not to stress too much and to SMILE! You’re starting a new adventure and that’s really exciting! 
    Be sure to update us with how you go (but I’m sure you will be just fine, I bet the next time we talk you’ll have a bunch of new pals!)

    Hope this helped!

    Hey Tahlia! Don't worry about moving schools, I'm sure that you'll make new friends easily!  When I started Intermediate, I was SO nervous about making new friends coz none of my besties from Primary were going to my Intermediate, I worried that people would tease me of my glasses, and I was a pretty shy kid, but now after two years of Intermediate, I've made loads of cool friends,  my confidence has grown and I realised that making friends wasn't so terrifying after all! So keep calm, smile, and make new friends! Merry Christmas and I hope you'll make lots of  friends at your new school!

    Hi Jess
    I was wondering if you could give me some advice, when we go back to school there is a new girl in my class and my BFF really likes her and she isnt really talking to me i feel like its just wrong and that the girl is taking my friend away. Also in 2015 my class did the leadership program and ALL my friends got leadership roles for grade 6 and i didnt so i feel really left out and lonley when they all go do jobs together. Also i have started my own business (lolly buffets and baked treats) and im not getting many customers do you have any ideas?
    I hope youre enjoying your holidays and i would really really really appriciate it if you replied.
    Thankx Abigail

    Hey Abi  sorry if u don't want 2 here from me but here is my advice. For you're first problem tell you're friends how it makes you feel, as you're BFF maybe she's got so caught up and you need to remind her. It's always good to make new friends and i understand that for you're BFF but do you think you might spend a little too much time with you're BFF and she just wants to spend a little bit of time with another friend. As for you're small business try add more variety to you're lolly buffet and baked treats. Just remember don't push people to buy things and make it fun by making daily specials. e.g: Chocolate cupcakes and M&M's $2 each. Hoped this helped a little.
