Since I haven’t written an update post for ages (the last one I wrote was in December), I thought that today’s the day to do one. I will talk about various things really, because there’s been such a lot going on in the last few weeks.
I have been so excited to read books again after my 10 Books From My Wishlist post, that I ordered some in English. I’m not a native English-speaker, so it’s not that easy to find good books in their original language here. However, for the last year or so I’ve tried to read more and more books in English so that I can improve my language skills a bit. Since I wrote that list, my to-read list became even bigger and I regained my love for books (finally!). I was the biggest bookworm in primary school, but in the last couple of years I couldn’t read as much as I wanted to. One day I stumbled across a video in which a girl discussed what her favourite books of 2015 were and I became incredibly excited about reading books. I looked up the story behind some of the books she had mentioned and created a Goodreads account. I started watching a ton of Booktube and I have to admit, I really like those videos. In fact, I subscribed to two Youtubers who only talk about books. I know, I might have become a little bit obsessed, but I’m totally okay with it. It’s just books, so no need to worry, haha. I stated reading a book yesterday and I’m already almost finished with it, so I’m very keen on seeing what’s next. The moral of the story is that you should make enough time to practice your hobby, because I certainly did not do that.
Slightly off topic, but my prom will be tomorrow. I think I am the only person in the universe who is not that eager about it. In my opinion it’s not that big of a deal here as in the USA, and even if it was I still wouldn’t look forward to it to be completely honest. It’s just not my type of event and I can’t wait for it to be over. Prom also reminds me of how close my final exams are getting and I’m terrified. The ‘applying for a university’ season also started, so it seems like someone’s screaming at me that “Finals are comiiiiing!”. But I decided to be the best I can be and smash those exams in a few months!
I have so many goals to achive this year that it’s insane. I really hope to be the strongest version of myself to be able to succeed in achiving them. Wish me luck for tomorrow, because we have to perform a class dance and I’m horrible at it! I’m so afraid that I’ll mess something up. Anyway, that’s what I wanted to chat about today, I hope you enjoyed reading it! Let me know in the comments what you’re up to these days or you can tweet me as well (@justkingablog)! See you soon! :)
P.S.: What do you think about Coldplay’s halftime show at the Super Bowl 50? I absolutely loved it!
