The Beautiful feeling of Freedom

Technically, it’s partial freedom because exams aren’t totally over yet (five more left), but they will be- soon. Next month to be precise.

Free from the chains of public exams…sorta

 

Anyway…how are you guys? I haven’t been blogging for a long time- I was trying to limit distractions around me while I revised. So this post, as usual, shall be a random rant.

The most talked about topic at the moment? The horrific incident that took place in Woolwich, South London. Two Islamic extremists hacked a poor man to death with a machete, simply because he was a soldier. I can’t wrap my head around this event to be honest. The extent of violence that took place makes me sick to my core, I mean imagine the amount of hate you need to feel to plunge a knife into someones heart, let alone a machete. *Shudders*

My mum just got a blackberry, we’re both trying to figure out how to use it. If you want a new phone- get an iphone. They definitely live up to their expectations. I received the iphone 5 late last year and I love it. The only thing I don’t find that useful is the Siri. 

My friend Abigail is infatuated with Leonardo Di Caprio. It’s getting quite worrying, I think she needs a boyfriend, fast. I also better not tell her Titanic is coming on TV tonight…

Speaking of films, I plan to watch ‘The Last King of Scotland’ and ‘Pitch Perfect’ over this weekend and bank holiday Monday. I also hope to go cinema to watch the latest Ryan Gosling film. ‘The place beyond the pines’ , also starring Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes.

What is about people, men in particular, and periods? On Friday I went through the ordeal of having to carrying a bag containing a pack of pads on the bus, then all the way home. I assumed most people knew what was is in the bag, or maybe it was just me, I don’t know.

Women bleed monthly- just accept it. It’s natural, it’s nature. Also, If a women is acting moody or grumpy, it’s likely you’re annoying the hell out of her- not that she’s on her period. Men and some women alike like to make that annoying assumption.

I love American TV shows. My favorite at the moment is ‘The Mindy Project’;firstly because it’s hilarious, secondly because it’s one of the only TV shows I know that have a leading character of ethnic minority.

British dramas like ‘Prisioners’ Wives’ are also good but, very intense. British humour is usually misunderstood by many, while American humour is pretty much a universal thing. That’s just my opinion anyway.

Unusual Moment of the Week: Buying flavored milk from the school canteen and finding out it was expired O_o. 

(I ended up exchanging it for some juice)

‘Ello, ello, ello!

So it’s the week after Holy week…whatever that’s called. I haven’t been on here for a while, but it’s nice to be back. Check out the ‘Squares Eyes‘ section of my blog, where I, a self-confessed TV fanatic, will be posting reviews and recommendations of TV shows ( and maybe the occasional film) to watch.

It’s the Easter Holidays and I’m meant to be revising…or trying to anyway. Holidays are usually those times where I have so much time on my hands I either do nothing at all, or a lot of things. Honestly, I can’t wait till exams are over. I can literally imagine the moment where I can walk out of school with my grades and burn my uniform- tie, skirt and all. Until then…I need to FOCUS.

And… to sum up the news for the week for those who live in a hole, or are just to busy living life:

Roger Ebert (Famous Journalist and Film critic) has died of cancer- R.I.P to him

North Korea seems to be stirring a global panic and threatening America with their nukes- I see the possible start of Cold War 2 (?).

The Philpotts have been sentenced and jailed for manslaughter. All six of their children were killed last year in a fire that they, the parents, (apparently) started. Honestly, the amount of cruelty in this world never seizes to amaze me.

On a positive note I’ve been enjoying the amazing Japanese films that have been coming on Film 4 as part of Studio Ghibli season. I’m not into all the sorcery…but I enjoyed the films Arrietty, Ponyo and Whisper of the Heart, which came on today.

Nearly finished The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini. One word – FANTASTIC. A must add to anyone’s bucket list of books to read, (if you have one that is).
