Dear Reader,

FROM: B
TO: MY LOVELY READERS
SUBJECT: YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHAT I DID!!

Dear Reader,

You are never going to believe what I did this week! surprise, surprise… I’ve read a book. Since my social life is non-existent with my school schedule and all the after school preps for the day after, my little free time goes to reading these day (as you may noticed since this is the third book review in a row, if it’s boring just let me know and I’ll stop). I read in every sort of spare time I have. 10 min before class? Read. waiting in the elevator? Read. Breakfast? Read. I hide in the ‘tower’ at school so I can have some quiet time to read. I HAVE NO LIFE ANYMORE! But hey, reading is the best thing ever!

why am I writing in email form, you ask? well, that is because it is the way my latest book and today’s subject is written. This week I’ve read the book “Love, Rosie” by Cecelia Ahern. The movie adaptation has been one of my favorite movies for years! and since lately my book genre preference is noticeably changing I gave the book a go, and I absolutely LOVED it.

The whole book is writing in letter/email/postcard/chat/call form, which is a bit weird in the beginning (especially when you saw the movie), because you only know what’s been told in the letter nothing more and nothing less. But once you are adjusted to the writing style you are so absorbed in the story that you just want to keep reading and reading! The story is in big lines the same in the movie, some other chronology. But it is far more ‘real’, as far as I can relate, you know I’m not a mother at the age of 19. But it is way more realistic than the movie (logical of course). (It also a great book if you, like me, read for 5 minutes a time, because after every letter you can stop without having the problem of stopping in the middle of a paragraph)

Rosie’s life, the ups and down get revealed through the letters, which makes it more personal, in my opinion. Everybody’s life gets into the story. Not just Alex’s and Rosie’s. I think reading the book made me appreciate the movie more. The movie is of course awfully americanized, it really romanticized the ‘being a  teen mom without a diploma’ a lot. The actual story doesn’t completely revolves around the love life of Alex and Rosie. There is so much more to it. Meeting people, making friends when you have a kid while having no job nor education. The story covers the ‘whole’ life of Rosie, also with some time jumps.

I think it is an inspirational, yet funny story about a woman trying to achieve her dreams, no matter how life turns her world upside down. Always wanting the best for everybody around her, without trying to forget her own happiness. Nobody’s life is a fairy tale, everybody has obstacles. But that doesn’t mean you are defeated even though it might feel that way. Just push through and never forget your dream, even if life gets in the way. And yes, I did cry on multiple occasions.

Love,
B ❤

 

This the season to be jolly…

Hello everybodyyy!! (sorry for the lay-out, I cant seem to fix it :/ )
Never in my life have I felt less christmassy than this year! It sucked cause I absolutely loooove Christmas spirit! I had all my stuff ready to make a christmas haul, because for some reason I had a lot of stuff. Didn’t impove the feeling though. Anyway I had all these blog ideas but literally no time.
Since this year Winterbreak turned into study season. I think I studied more in 2 weeks than I did all 7 years of high school combined. And still I’m going to fail hard. Even with my highly orginazed planning (yes, I’m one of those people, and yes I stick to it. Even worse, I’m a day ahead, you can imagine the hate of others when you tell them that :p ). So my planning AND watching Grey’s anatomy, I still don’t get it. And I have 3 subjects of anatomie, so please kill me now!
I do am proud of myself a little, because I do study as much as I can fysically handle (which is going to bed at 10pm, or I can’t function at all in the morning), and my breaks are not binge watching series, like I normally would. It was like an early new years resolution, being productive on breaks. So that means reading… the high quality literature of wattpad fanfiction, if you like Harry Potter fanfics look up kmbell92. Also I started knitting again, still nog any further than last year… just knitting patches, I can make a blanket with is, someday when I have 1000 patches. And writing as uch as I can with the limited creativity I have, during these boring times.
But studying during christmas and new year sucks really hard. Seeing my cousins get drunk, even my mum doing a shot, and you just sit there. Nah, I have to study tomorrow. And I’m saving my day for New Year (which was a good choice btw). But christmas was very fun, I got my uncle and I got each other for secret Santa and we got each other Harry Potter gifts. There was a lot of martini bellini, and it was fun seeing everybody again. But god, I can’t wait until all those children are a bit older, it’s a miracle I’m not deaf!
Then after a week of hard work, studying and liters coffee, IT WAS NEW YEAR! We all really looked forward to it. This was the second year we did this, and just like then we made food (this year was macaroni) had some drinks (waaaay less than last year, cuz studying). It was the best time of the holidays. Also did a secret santa And I got awsome gifts!Around 11pm, the boyz came (the boyfriends and their friends) wished happy newyear and left to the pub :p I was freezing my toes off!!

In my opinion studying during holiday season should be illegal, how can I znjoy my Harry Potter gifts when I have to learn. And now the holidays are almost over and I getting panicked about exams starting Monday, just hoping I won’t cry in the middle of my exam… at least wainting til I get home for that

Anyways read y’all later if my parents didn’t kill me because I failed everything! Lovies<3

Little Update

Hello everybody!!!

Here I am nailing the consistincy of blogging! *applause* Every 2 weeks is easier to maintain, cuz lets face it my life isnt even close to being interesting enough to talk about every single week. 

So what did happen the last 2 weeks of my life? let’s see…

Last week I had a family party, that was soooo much fun!! (notice the sarcasm) Even though I love my family, I have no one, (besides my sister, but I talk to her everyday already). All my cousins are 10 years older than me, have wives and children. And I’m standing there, alone with my parents,(I really need to get myself a boyfriend, so I’m not awkwardly alone anymore) trying not to look too bored in way too high heels, never doing that again, after an hour and a half standing there, I continued barefooted, until we got to the table. Because why not.

You never realise how much you really depend on your phone until you’re in a place with no WiFi, no 3G and not even decent cell reception. Thank you Wallonia!

What else did I do? I went to school… as much as I always hope something exciting happens, it never does. I constantly wonder why the hell on earth we have math. I only have 3 hours of math and yet instead of teaching us the stuff we will need in college, they teach us crap… where is the logic in that?

Good side of school… I have been bounding with people in my class I didn’t talk to much last year! Which is a bummer, cuz they’re awesome :p

Everything else is still the same, culture teacher is still boring, history teacher is still a know-it-all, geography teacher is still hot, math and science teacher still hate us. nothing new just like summer vacation never happened.

Since I have nothing else to complain about I am now gonna watch some tv serie instead of homework, byeeee

Christmas happened :D

Hi there!

As we all know christmas has passed and it’s almost New Year! *Excitement everywhere*I love the holiday season, lots of lights and colours. And sales *Shop til you drop*.

I always find Christmas eve and Christmas passing so quick. It’s over before it started. I actually like the built up to the holidays more than the holiday itself. It’s not like we’re getting presents from everybody, I’m too old for that. I’m kinda stuck is the boring fase of family parties. I’m too old to play and get presents, but everybody in my family, except my sister, is at least 10 years older than me. I don’t have anybody to talk too (I’m feeling sorry for everybody in the same position). Luckily there is the built up like I said.

The days before Christmas eve were busy. Monday I went present shopping with my dad and my sister. There are 2 sides on shopping with your dad;
1) you will certainly do all the shops you want too, because it goes faster than with your mom or friends.
2) Sometimes it goes too fast, my dad pointed so many clothes, because he thought the sooner I find something, the sooner we can get out of here. And I think it worked we were back short after noon 😉
When we got home I ate and watched my favorite animated Disney film of all time TANGLED! Like OMG how good is it! I mean Flynn Rider *drools into a bucket*. :*

Tuesday was a moneymaking day. I went babysitting on my neighbor’s kids for the day. Sweet kids, as long as you don’t play any games with winning or losing, because that cute 5-year old will curse the hell out of you. where do they get those words? Lucky for me his older sister backs me up every time 😉 But I love babysitting, it fun, I like playing with kids and you get money for it. I just don’t understand why 5 year olds need Ipad, or phones. I don’t get it.

Okay, let’s move on to wednesday. Last minute clothes shopping with my dad, again. He needed clothes for the evening and I would get stuff if I went with him. If he goes shopping alone he brings back the ugliest things in the store. My dad is also partly colour blind, there are colours he doesn’t see, like red and orangey things and thinks they’re green. He know a lot of different greens. And because of that, and not because I still hadn’t found a proper dress, I went shopping with him. My dad got shoes, shirts and pants and I got a little black dress and black heels. And lots of earrings, Sales only count when you buy 2 pieces. 😉

Christmas Eve itself was rather boring, I had no one to talk to, but they did put on a Disney movie, Pinocchio, for my nephew. I was more interested in that then the conversation :p After Pinocchio, we chose toy Story, but I fell asleep. Waking up at 3am with convo’s about Illuminati isn’t the greatest subject. But it escalated quickly from Illuminati to calling ghost, to illuminati in politics, to terrorists and from there to teen moms, all in half an hour. Hard to follow when you’re half asleep 😉 but hey, there was food.

Me, just in time to take one quick pic before leaving :)

After that I’ve been confused which day it was, and mostly watched series in bed all day and ate, of course. Oh yeah, yesterday the first snow fell, I only like snow to watch, nothing else. It’s a disaster when it starts melting. So I haven’t made an Olaf yet, but maybe I will.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…

Next week it’s New Year’s Eve, first small family dinner and after midnight I’m going to a party with my friends 😀 I’ll let you know how that went 😉
