Monthly Recap July

July was a pretty weird month. June hadn’t really been a fun month for me, so I haven’t really been in the very happiest of moods, but it’s also the official start of the summer. And therefore time to relax, unwind, and finally catch up on my reading challenge. At the beginning of the month I was about 18 books behind. I hadn’t been feeling like reading, and I’m not the one to force myself to read, so the number of books I was behind kept getting bigger and bigger. As of right now, I am proud to announce that I am *drum roll* only 7 books behind on schedule. Is that an applause I hear? Sounds like music to my ears, haha. I am…

When Professors include Song-Lyrics in Exams

First semester of the first year English Language is done. Exams are over with, and now I know that I passed all of them on the first go I can finally take a breather and think back. First thing that pops into my mind? My Language Acquisition exam. One of the exams I least liked, but brings a smile to my face nonetheless. Why?

Late Night Blogging Inspirations

But hey, what can you do about it? Well, I do what I expect every blogger would do. I turn on the light, find a pen and some paper, and jot it down. Because if I don’t I ALWAYS forget. When I just started out I used to think that I would remember and continue falling asleep. Worst thing to do. Because there’s a 99,9…

Who Knew This TV-Show Was THIS Good?

A few weeks ago I started watching The 100. I started getting curious about this show during the summer. I was in London with my sister to attend YALC and it seemed that all over Twitter people were talking about this show. Then university started and I felt like I couldn’t start a new tv show. So while I was on break I decided to watch an episode to see what all the fuss was about… and two days later I’d finished watching the entire first season. I haven’t even read the book yet, but that first episode was so incredibly good that I couldn’t stop watching. I am completely and irrevocably obsessed with this show. And then there was Lincoln, and my obsession grew…
