I landed an airplane. ✈️ #Schiphol
So yep, this happened yesterday.
Hey everyone! I love reading and I think it would be awesome if all my fellow bookworms out there posted their top ten favourite reads to share with their followers. Write your list and reblog this post so we can all share our passion for literature with each other!
These are my favourites:
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling
2. Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, J.K. Rowling
3. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, J.K. Rowling
4. Looking for Alaska, John Green
5. The Fault In Our Stars, John Green
6. Siegfried, Harry Mulisch (Dutch book)
7. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer
8. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
9. Summer of Love, Katie Fforde
10. Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë
It’s been already two months since my 18th birthday, but last Sunday I got my stepbrother/sister’s birthday present: two brand new books by John Green. For those you don’t know who John Green is, he’s the author of The Fault In Our Stars. For those you don’t know what TFIOS is: DO YOU LIVE UNDER A ROCK?? Anyhow, anyway I got two new books. Yeah!
Talking about books, I have to talk about my favourites. I think that would be pretty obvious: Harry Potter. So you might understand that last week couldn’t start any better. No you don’t? Well let me give you some hints:
So this Potterhead was very happy. But a lot more happened this week. Tuesday morning I had to wear my most beautiful smile because the annual ‘school photo’ had to be made. This year it was a very strict looking woman who wanted you to be seated in the most awkward positions. She made several pictures, but she forgot to turn on the flash so eventually, when she did turn on the flash, my picture looked something like this.
I had the same sort of look Saturday after 11 hours of work. First I started at 7:30 am at the ‘Dutch Standard Prices Company Amsterdam’ also known as HEMA and then at 5pm I had to clean the car of my friend’s neighbour. I earned a lot of money so I won’t complain and we had delicious dinner at friends’, but oh my goodness I haven’t been that tired in ages.
Sunday my mom and I saw the filming of The Reader. Has anyone of you read the book? I am about to read it and I’d like to hear your opinion. Leave me a message in my ask and I’ll see you guys next week.
You can say that my first week of school was the opposite of the week I expected it to be.
‘Cause I failed my exams last year I have to do my final year of sixth form all over again.
First day of school wasn’t a bad day to start with. I had only 3 classes and I liked all 3 the teachers. The next day on the other hand was less nice. I had 5 classes that day which means 2 breaks. One at 11 am and the other was the lunch. Because I barely knew anybody I was at the library during the lunch. I felt quite like Hermione Granger from Harry Potter.
I didn’t like my first week that much that I can’t even remember what happened the next few days. Anyhow, anyway for the first time I had a huge TGIF-feeling. It’s not that my classmates are rude to me, it is just that most of them give me the feeling that I am not worth looking at (I can tell you, that is not a great feeling) so I was quite happy school was nearly over.
I am the only one of my friends who stayed at school, so I expected them to be curious about how my first week went. How my holiday had been and that they were eager to see me. Well I can tell you that I was wrong. I didn’t hear anything from most of them ‘till today. Which made me even more aware that I have 3 best friends and that they are the best. And having 3 best friends is much better than a thousand people who are very nice to you.
My first two weeks may not have been the best, but I am a ‘strong and powerful’ woman so I can handle it. See you next week guys.
I did the ice-bucket-challenge and I nominate all of you to do the same! Most important of course is to donate money for ALS research!
A little update from the States. In a couple of days I’ll be back home and one week after that my weekly writing will begin. Hope you all have (had) an amazing summer.
Mine is, for sure, perfect.
See you next week!
A little ‘Hello’
At the end of the summer I will, again, start my last year of secondary school. Because my mind is quite messy and I’d like to write my thoughts down I have decided to start this weekly blog about me (an eighteen year old dutchie - see pictures above).
Every week I’ll update my thoughts about my crushes, friends and family, homework, fashion and books I am about to read or have read.
English isn’t my best school subject, so therefore I am now apologizing for any grammar mistakes.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading and don’t be afraid to ask me anything.
The weekly writing will start August 24th.
