College update #1

Hi guys! I decided to do a 'college update' because I wanted to talk about college. I'm going to college more or less 2 months and I think I'm doing okay. I have a lot of work, a lot of homework and I have to study a lot, but overall everything is okay.

The first few days of college were a bit odd because it wasn't the same as high school. The building was bigger, more students and the behaviour of the teachers is also different. For example, in high school you always had class from the first minute 'till the last minute and now they teach until they want. Some teachers stop earlier, but I don't mind!

Even though college is different I still have the 'high school' feeling. It's probably because I have such a small class, I think more or less 20 students. And I have class in classrooms like in high school, never in a really large classroom (don't know the word in English, it's really large, a lot of seats for more or less 100-200 people).

I was afraid to make friends because I'm very shy and have anxiety, but this time it was okay. I made friends very quickly and I'm happy to be around them.

Something I'm also looking forward to, is the exchange with a French school (in Belgium). My French is not that good so this is an amazing opportunity to improve my English. In the second semester of school we're going 1 day to the French school, Helha, and the next day they're coming to our school. This week I got an e-mail address from one of the students because I have to send e-mails to him/her. My correspondent is a girl called Laura and I like her so much. She answered the next day and she's also excited as I am. I have to write in French to her so she can correct my French and she has to write in Dutch to me so I can correct her Dutch.

I'm happy that school is more or less okay and I'll probably make another college update after my exams.

Love, Rosie | Review

Title: Love, Rosie
Author: Cecelia Ahern
Pages: 512 pages
Version: Paperback
Publisher: Hachette Books


Love, Rosie tells the story of Rosie and her best friend Alex. They’ve been friends for so long and always dated/married the wrong person, until the very end of the book.

The book is written in a way of chat messages, e-mails, texts and letters. I think that’s a special way of writing a book. In the beginning I thought it was a bit odd, because I wasn’t used to reading like that, but eventually I was used to it and enjoyed reading it.

I first saw the movie Love, Rosie and I loved it so much. When I found out there was a book, I was excited to read it. When I started reading, it wasn’t exactly the same as in the movie. When I read more and more, I didn’t mind. I loved the movie and I loved the book.

The story is really beautiful and I cannot wait to read another book written by Cecelia Ahern.

October favourites 2016

  • Cozz Cosmetics lip balm
Cozz Cosmetics is an unknown brand for me, but my mum bought the lip balms because she knows I love lip balms. You have three tastes: Vanilla, Cherry and Strawberry. My mum bought all 3 for me and the Vanilla one for herself. When I opened the lip balm, you could really smell the scent and when I put it on my lips it was like heaven. I love creamy lip balms, and these are just perfect!
(On the picture you can see the Cherry one.)
  • Teen Wolf season 2 & 3
I watched the entire season 2 in 4 days… That explains a lot, right? I watched season 1 a long long long time ago and season 2 never came on TV, which was a bummer! But someone gave me season 2, 3 and 4 so I was sooo happy. I really really really loved season 2 and I finished season 3 in more or less 1 week. (I'm addicted)
  • Grenadine
Lately I’ve been drinking a lot of water with grenadine. I love the sweet taste of it and it gives me energy. When I’m tired (because of school, …) and drink the grenadine I’m more awake. (Probably because of the sugars in it.) ;)
  • Halloween lights
For Halloween I bought two sets of lights: lights in the form of pumpkins and lights in the form of purple bats. Both of these lights are sooo adorable! I decorated my bookshelves with them and I think it looks soo pretty! I might even let them hang a bit longer than just October.
  • Ravenclaw bookmark and Hogwarts notebook
On the last day of October I went to a bookstore and found this bookmark and notebook. I’m such a Harry Potter fan so I had to buy it! I think the bookmark is so beautiful, and to be honest I’m so happy that there’s a Ravenclaw one because most of the time they only make Slytherin and Gryffindor. The notebook is so pretty too! I love the illustrations on the inside!
