Pitch Perfect 2 and Eurovision Song Contest

Hi! :)

I couldn’t write a new post yesterday, because we didn’t have internet, which was very annoying. But I’m here today with some of my random thoughts.

Firstly, I went to the premiere of Pitch Perfect 2, which I had been waiting for since the film was announced. It was the first time that I went alone to the cinema, which was a bit weird, but great at the same time. In my opinion the film was even better, than the first one. As you may or may not know, Pitch Perfect is my favourite film, so it was a huge relief that the second film was amazing as well. Pentatonix were also in the movie, which I was so excited about, even if they were on screen for about a minute. I loved every second of this movie, and I can’t wait to watch it in English, too, because in the cinema it was only available in Hungarian. I highly recommend this film to you, if you can, go and watch it! It was so funny, I was laughing almost the whole way through. I love it.

Eurovision 2015

Hi! :)

I watch the Eurovision Song Contest every year. It is a song competition between European countries. It is around spring time every single year, and the contest for choosing the Hungarian participant has already began. I don’t want to write a whole novel about this song contest, you can look it up somewhere if you’re interested in it. Hungary has 30 contestants this year, and I thought that I would tell you my opinion about the songs. I won’t go into lots of details, basically I’ll just tell you what song I like of all of them, because I’m not an expert.

You can listen to the studio versions of the songs by clicking here.

You will be able to listen to the songs live and also to see the performances by clicking on these links. (The first link only includes 10 live performances):

You know you’re Hungarian when…

Hi! :)

I was not going to post today, but I’ve just come across an article about being Hungarian, and how you know you’re Hungarian. I find the article very funny and it’s so true, that I thought I’d share it with you.

“You know you’re Hungarian when…

1. you know the phrase “three is the Hungarian truth”
2. you can swear for 5 minutes straight, with one breath, not using the same word, ever
3. you never heard anybody say anything positive about politics
4. you don’t know at least half of the people at family celebrations
5. you love Túró Rudi but can’t really explain to foreigners what the hell it is until they try it
6. for every meaning there are about 5 words

Stressful Week

Hi!:)

I was going to write about a topic which I am very interested in, but there’s so many things going on and I’m so exhausted, that I’m afraid I can’t post a very well-written post for you, and it won’t be the most exciting post I’ve ever written, but I’m still here. It counts, doesn’t it? I hope so. It’s a miracle for me to write this post now, because I am literally on the edge of falling asleep.

Well, I couldn’t sleep a lot through the past 2 weeks, even though I’m not anyone who sleeps a lot in the school season anyway. I have written so many tests so far, that I could hardly learn for everything every single day, because I have so many classes a day, that it is almost impossible to ‘survive’ a week. For me at least. I mean I already wrote a post about how things go in Hungary, and especially in my school. My school isn’t different from others, but the class I’m in is a bilingual class, so it’s a lot harder than a ‘normal’ class (e.g. 10 classes a day, and so on…). Whatever, I have been awake almost every day till after midnight studying for the next day, and now I feel very poorly. I literally couldn’t wait for Friday to come since Monday. There’s like a ‘test writing period’ going on right now, when every teacher decides that they want us to write tests, and it hasn’t finished yet. It probably won’t until winter break. So I decided to try to sleep as mush as I possibly can on this weekend, but I still don’t know how, because we won’t be home tomorrow. I guess I have to sleep at my relatives’ house, haha. This week I had English, Spanish, maths, biology, and physics tests. I was shocked today, because we had maths test, and our teacher never gives us a test without announcing it a few days before the test, but now he is angry at us (it’s a lot to explain), we were shocked. My grades in maths are pretty bad right now, but I’m trying to improve and study, so I hope for the best. Continue reading Stressful Week

Halloween

Hi! :)

Happy Halloween! In Hungary Halloween is not a tradition to celebrate. If someone tries to go trick or treating, then some old ladies will definitely call the police, so don’t try to do that if you’re in Hungary, haha! Even if it isn’t a big holiday here, more and more people dress up in different costumes when it’s Halloween and do their own scary makeup. Since we don’t celebrate Halloween on 31st October, we still have our own day “Mindenszentek”, which is kind of like All Hallow’s Evening, Halloween. We don’t put on scary costumes, but we visit our relatives and close friends who had passed away in the cemetery, and we put flowers on the tomb and we light a candle for them. We remember them on that day, and of course, on other days, too, but 1st November is their special day in Hungary. Continue reading Halloween

My Country – Hungary

Hi! :)

As the majority of you know, I’m from Hungary. I thought I would write a post about my country, because a lot of people don’t even know, what Hungary is. Let’s start with the basics.

Hungary is a country in Central Europe with the population of 10 million people, so it definitely isn’t a huge country as you can tell. The country is very green, we have a lot of plains, but we also have mountains in the North (and some in the South as well). The highest mountain is 1014 m high, so it’s not that outstanding, but Hungarians are proud about the fact that we have a mountain higher than a thousand meters, called Kékes. We don’t have a seaside, but we call Lake Balaton, the biggest lake in Hungary, the Hungarian sea. Lake Balaton is a very attractive tourist sight, when someone is being on a holiday in Hungary, it is 80% sure that the person also visits Lake Balaton. It is 77 km long, and the view is beautiful.

5 Facts About Me

Hi! :)

As I promised, I’m back with a ‘facts about me’ post, just to let you know some things about me in case if you’re interested. It’s a kind of life related blog (as I mentioned earlier), so I think it’s important in a way to tell something about me to you. So here are five facts about me:

1. I am from Hungary, and you can guess what my native language is: It’s Hungarian. I found a picture on Google to show you where Hungary is in case you didn’t know.

2. I also speak English (as you can see haha) and Spanish. I try to do my best at these languages because I really like them. I’ve learnt English for quite a long time now, but I started to learn Spanish only two years ago, so I’m not that good in it yet. Continue reading 5 Facts About Me
