long time no post…sorry it’s been a hectic few months what with graduation, exams, prom and livin it up now that it’s finally SUMMER.
well currently the sun is not shining but it is a bit humid. english weather is incredibly bipolar.
YAY FEDERER WON WIMBLEDON 2012…poor Murray- he tried.
okay so my exams are over now i have to wait till August 16th for results-fun times.
i need 3As to get into SOAS and 2As and a B to get into LSE. whichever one is best for me since they’re both excellent universities.
so Graduation was just a Leavers Mass and a small ceremony which was fun and quite sad since although i hate school i’m gonna miss my friends and a few of my teachers. plus that day was insanely hot. but i must say i looked FABULOUS. i wore a purple dress 😉
Prom was amazing…apparently i looked like an Arabian Princess or as my friend said ‘a better looking Princess Jasmine’ 😉 i really did dance the night away and have an incredible night as yes ‘this night is sparkling don’t you let it go i’m wonderstruck blushing all the way home…’ it was enchanting and totally awesome even though they didn’t play taylor swift but they did play call me maybe (obviously) and we did the macarena…haha fun times. =D
then my friends from South Africa came and it’s been a hectic few weeks but boy have i had fun!!!
went to Thorpe Park which is basically a theme park full of rollercoasters it was INSANELY AWESOME. my favourite ride was tidal wave. you can imagine what that was like. =P sadly there has yet to be a rollercoaster as awesome as pHINEAS AND ferb’s one.
so i finally saw Wicked and it was PHENOMENAL tho it was kind of funny that Matt from Busted was Fiyero…ah Busted…my childhood.
anyways Wicked was absolutely fantastic and you must see it if you haven’t!!!!
i also went to see MATILDA THE MUSICAL. oh wow that was beautiful. hilariously wonderful just brilliant. as a lover of books it was such a joy to see one of my favourite books and the songs and the actors oh those kids were amazing and Ms Trunchbull was played by a man it was insane.
we also took a trip to Edinburgh for the weekend and that was wonderful. such a beautiful city oh the architecture is STUNNING. the weather wasn’t too bad either.
saw The Amazing Spider-Man at the imax which i really enjoyed because ANDREW GARFIELD AND EMMA STONE are just so adorable.
i also watched The Forger because well Josh Hutcherson is in it DUH…it wasn’t amazing but josh was so cute and his character well i loved him the end was so cute ‘the best thing i learnt was first you kiss the hand…then you kiss the girl’
of course i can’t remember how long ago i posted but I SAW THE AVENGERS AND I THINK IT MIGHT BE MY FAVE MOVIE OF THE YEAR…YES IT BEATS THE HUNGER GAMES but THG is like in it’s own special category because PEETA MELLARK is the best.
i don’t even need an Avengers picture because if you haven’t seen it then please just FIND A WAY TO SEE IT WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WITH YOUR LIFE? also i mean you can’t go away from seeing that movie without having a crush on at least one if not ALL of them.
the film is nothing without
Liam Hemsworth (yes Gale Hawthorne in THG and brother of Chris Hemsworth) is engaged to Miley Cyrus (yes Hannah Montana)
okay so they’re very young but i hope it lasts and they have a long healthy happy marriage. =)
THEY WILL HAVE SERIOUSLY CUTE BABIES
now i have SO MUCH MORE to tell you such as: tons of movie stuff and book reviews to come but for now
CITY OF LOST SOULS PEOPLE OMG i finally read it and it was one intense journey
so i loved it of course. i mean painful things happened and City of Heavenly Fire only comes out in 2014 but damn it was an awesome book. hilarious of course. shocking and definitely a page turner…well duh it’s cassie clare. starts of a bit slow but then BAM stuff happens.
um SEBASTIAN WTF?! i feel sorry for him he only wants to be loved but eeewww he tried to rape clary what?
simon and isabelle are the cutest thing ever
malec…what…but cassie clare said that they BOTH have to change if they want to get back together
jace and clary- ALWAYS….LKGHKDJFHBJK their love is legendary i mean gosh how many times has jace died?!
jordan and maia omg finally JORDAN’S REACTION HE REALLY LOVES HER *sigh*
maureen is cray cray (note i never actually say this in a serious way it’s always a joke) but she has got batshit crazy GET IT HAHAHAHAHA
okay so if you haven’t read The Mortal Instruments series and i just spoilt it for you i do apologise but you should go read it SINCE THE MOVIE IS COMING OUT NEXT YEAR and they’re gonna start filming in August which is next month. it’s happening. for real.
now for Insurgent by Veronica Roth
so this started of REALLY REALLY slowly but omg there were so many betrayals i was like WHAT IS THIS HOW COULD YOU and then surprises like I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING but then things were like oH NO HE DIDN’T but yes he did.
it was intense
and i look forward to the final book which has yet to be named so people are calling it Detergent haha. =P
okay if you want a proper review go on my goodreads profile. i pretty much said the same thing.
basically FOURTRIS 5EVER
i’m just thinking…who even reads my blog anyways?!
but moving on
I FINALLY READ THE PERCY JACKSON SERIES!!!!
the covers are actually horrible i’m sure you can find better ones. but the stories…oh wow. i have no idea why it has taken me so long to read these books. i’m going to start The Heroes of Olympus series soon as well as The Kane Chronicles. i have learnt so much about Greek mythology. of course i have discovered i am a demigod. probably a daughter of Athena. just saying. =P
but if you love Harry Potter and The Hunger Games and want another brilliant adventure story then this is wonderful. it says for 9+ and i’m way over 9 years old but i still really enjoyed it because it was funny and gripping and a very easy read.
so i’m looking forward to the movie Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters although i don’t think they’re gonna stick to the books because they didn’t really do that with the first book. sigh.
okay more to come later such as: I WENT ON THE WARNER BROS HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR and lots of book reviews as well as movie stuff and music stuff and other random ramblings from yours truly =D
for now i shall leave you with
which is a beautiful song ❤
i feel it’s my duty as a human being to post this and it’s your duty as a human being to click on this and stare in amazement at the true beauty of humankind
and last but not least
“It’s a most distressing affliction to have a sentimental heart and a skeptical mind.” Naguib Mahfouz
“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.” Derek Bok
“Wonderstruck is about that moment when you instantly feel a connection to someone, but then there’s that feeling of being completely enamoured – enchanted – when you know a little more about that someone and still feel that strong connection.” Taylor Swift
“If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” Anne Lamott
