so my birthday was on the 19th of january
and i turned 19! yay
so i had a party con mis amigas
we watched pitch perfect which was ACA-AWESOME AND HILARIOUS
so Anna Kendrick does this awesome song Cups (You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone)
WOWZA. the movie was just so funny and i’m so glad i got to see it with all my friends
rebel wilson as fat amy (actuall yit’s fat patricia) was just SUPERB. i love her.
ate lots of yummy food and my mum and peeta baked marshmallow cupcakes!
got loads of awesome presents
but here are some of my fave
the oreo cushion i’ve been waiting for for 5 months THANK YOU AMANDA ❤
and then omg
the whole #TeamInspire is a think EMBLEM3 started and they’re this band i’m in love with and they love inspiring people. and my insanely awesome friend fatichoh got me this top along with some other amazing things.
so all in all Alhamdulilah i had a fantastic day!
also part of my present from one of my friend’s was a day out to the AQUARIUM yays which was super awesome we saw some sharks and sting rays and turtles but sadly the penguins weren’t there =( AND ONE WAS CALLED VLADIMIR BUT WE DIDN’T EVEN GET TO MEET HIM.
but i did get a penguin on my face
what’s been going on in my life?
enjoying term 2 of social anthropology…lots of work still SO MUCH READING especially those long ethnographies whether it’s Margaret Mead’s Coming of Age in Samoa which is like supposedly the most famous anthropological book…probably because it’s not very academic and is about sex…
it’s been snowing in london bbrrr so cold and then sunshine and now back to cold
i mean subahanallah the snow is so beautiful but i have to wear so many layers and waddle the a penguin so i dnt fall…
i was lucky enough to go to an EPIC NIGHT OF SPOKEN WORD thanks to the SOAS spoken word society
SHIHAN…from the US was there so i had to go and wow it was just amazing. he’s such an incredible person.
basically love like is him saying how amazing his wife is and just asdfghjkl; and then the other one is a response that how everyone expects his love to be so great but love is more than just commitment and loving someone it’s about being there through the good times and the bad and it’s about loving all their little quirks and accepting their faults…’being perfect in your imperfection’
i mean his spoken word poetry is just so beautiful so yeah enjoy. so glad i got to see him live =)
i finally saw Les Miserables
hugh jackman WAS AMAZING. and anne hathaway!!!
eddie redmayne as marius urgh so hot…and in FRENCH ATTIRE *swoon*
but i was like WTF THERE’S ANOTHER KING AFTER THE FRENCH REVOLUTION…well that went well.
so this movie is set AFTER the french revolution.
i really wanna read the book and see the play now!
i cried at the end!!! so much coz hugh jackman’s character jean valjean was just such an incredible man.
LOTS OF PEOPLE DIE.
also…SHE SAVED HIS LIFE…FRIENDZONED AND YET SHE SAVED HIS LIFE. *CRIES*
and as for love at first sight…idk it seems like such a nice cute idea but i may be a hopeless romantic but i’m also a realist.
anyhew the soundtrack is amazing of course and i love One Day More
The Dark Knight Rises– I FINALLY SAW IT OMG
can i just say bruce wayne is a hot hermit…
ANNE HATHAWAY WAS AMAZING AS CATWOMAN
i don’t understand how THIS GUY (BANE)
IS THIS GUY
also Joseph Gordan-Levitt was AMAZING and OMG ROBIN!!! AAAHHHH
and the ending was SO ADORABLE.
it’s a REALLY LONG MOVIE BUT BRILLIANT.
congrats to JENNIFER LAWRENCE for winning quite a few awards woop so proud of her
i hope she wings the oscar. or Anne Hathaway.
i have to say i was kind of disappointed with her skit on SNL…it wasn’t that funny. and she made fun of josh and i did not approve.
so this book…i just thought it was gonna be like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time but it wasn’t. so i was pleasantly surprised. easy to read and quite funny at times and full of random facts. i actually really enjoyed it.
so this boy loves observing people and witnesses a kid bringing a gun to school and the gun going off *GASP*
is it just me?
so i was REALLY looking forward to reading this book coz i enjoy watching the show Miranda. but this book isn’t that great. not really that funny and just kind of annoying. and cringey but not even in a good way. sigh. so unfortunately miranda IT IS JUST YOU. maybe someone else can relate but i sure can’t. expectations lead to disappointments.
will grayson, will grayson
so i’ve been putting of reading this book for a while now…and I WANT TO SLAP MYSELF BECAUSE WHY DID I EVER NOT WANT TO READ IT? IT IS FABULOUS…tiny cooper i want him as a friend. both john green and david levithan are amazing writers and just this book is brilliant. so funny…you’ll be laughing out loud in public. and emotional and just WOW. john green sure knows how to write…i would LOVE TO SEE THE TINY COOPER MUSICAL. it needs to happen. oh yeah it’s about these two guys named will grayson who end up meeting each other
my name is not common so i could never meet a person with my full name…i have met people with the same name as me but different spellings.
the scorch trials
SO THIS IS THE SEQUEL TO THE MAZE RUNNER AND OMG WHAT EVEN IS THIS so good. basically…it’s another experiment kind of thing and they have to get through it and it’s just this desert place and they meet some allies brenda and jorge and teresa is there but IT’S ALL A LIE and i dn’t know what to believe and it’s so confusing but still so gripping.
and there’s 2 more books oh great. more death and fun and i hope i figure out what’s going on eventually…
but yeah the movie is coming out next year SO SOON!!! SO READ IT BEFORE YOU SEE IT.
the rosie project
this book is actually quite good. was surprised…really easy to read and funny and cute and mad at times. but yeah. so this guy decides to find a wife and so he come sup with the wife project which is a questionnaire asking things like do you smoke and stuff like that to see who he is compatible with….this is not so crazy since my friend and i actually thought of that…we should do that…since we have such high expectations. LOL nah i’m just like do you read books? can you have an intelligent conversation? do you love Disney movies. obviously not smoking and drinking hopefully that is a no to that and faith is definitely important.
march = THE HOST. and a few of my friend’s have birthdays etc so lots to look forward to AS WELL AS THE RELEASE OF THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NOVEL CLOCKWORK PRINCESS…THE FINAL INSTALLMENT IN THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY BY CASSANDRA CLARE. march 19th we die from feels.
you can read the Prologue to Clockwork Princess here
OBVIOUSLY DON’T READ IT IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS. gosh.
in other book related news OMG THE BOOK THIEF IS GONNA BE A MOVIE WHAT WHAT WHAT they’re gonna start filming and OMG IT’S GONNA BE RELEASED NEXT YEAR
THE MAZE RUNNER HAS A RELEASE DATE FEBRUARY 14TH 2014 omg they better not ruin it
idk all these books turning into movies…the trick is to see them as two different things. it will NEVER be like the book. but as long as the author is involved in the process and the cast and director have read the book/books i am okay…
PLL– crazy frustrating show…but so good. I HATE TOBY FOR LYING AND FOR JUST BEING OH GOSH IT HURTS SO MUCH. poor spencer.
The Lying Game– also annoying and frustrating but it’s good I AM SO HAPPY LAUREL AND EMMA FINALLY KNOW!

My Mad Fat Diary– is this show on E4 it’s really good apparently based on a true story. finn is hot. it’s about this girl who has problems like eating problems and self harm and suicidal etc and integrating back into society. it’s set in the 1990s.

since it’s valentine’s day this week
thought tbh i don’t really care i mean RELATIONSHIPS- AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT. i’m so not ready for one. and valentine’s day should be like every day…when i’m married to josh i want to buy him a present just coz i saw something he’d like not coz i have to on valentine’s day. though josh is quite the romantic so he’d probably force me to do something. ah josh…
also i really hope taylor swift wins a grammy and a Brit Award.
also i have come to the conclusion that i just fall in love with people’s smiles…like i might see some random person on the street or tube smiling and i’m like asdfghjkl;’ awwwww
but seriously every time i see a picture of josh or keaton or logan or any1 else i like smiling i just kesjgrsfdbhlgk`.jfksdfndbk.sdjb,dnakndjb *swoon* coz smiling is adorable and cute and just yeah…smiling…is beautiful.
so SMILE COZ YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN SOMEONE COULD BE FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOUR SMILE 😉
PEACE. LOVE. BOOKS. =D
p.s wombat poop is cubed. just so you know. you’re welcome =P
