30

One done. One more to go. I took one of the two exams I've been studying for and I got 30. (FYI, It's the highest mark. I don't know how the other universities in the world use as a scale). It was an oral exam about a 17th century poet, John Donne, and for some [...]

2017 Reading Wrap-up and 2018 Reading Goals

Sooooo... it's 2018! Personally, I don't care whether it's 2017 or 2018. It's still the same. No difference whatsoever. The only exception is that my goodreads reading challenge has started again. I'm here to do my reading wrap-up for 2017 and share some of the reading goals I want to achieve this year. At the [...]

November 2017: Books I’m Thankful For

It think it's a great wait to discover novels that otherwise I would have never discovered. So, here is my personal list of books I'm thankful for: Trevor Noah - Born A Crime I loved this book.

Trouble at Uni, exams and breakdowns

I don't even know where to start. Basically I've been studying for a months and a half for absolutely NOTHING. A couple of weeks ago, I logged into my uni account to book my english exam. And I made a surprising discovery. Back in June I wrote this post about the fact that I didn't [...]

Failure

I was hoping to pass at least one exam but I didn't. I did two and I didn't pass either of them. Frankly I don't know what to do. I thought I was strong enough but apparently this has set me back. I don't deal well with failure. It is something that detroys me from [...]

Missing two trains, Univeristy stuff and headaches

On Wednesday, I had the worst day. It was really bad. Weirdly enough, mentally, I was almost ok. But let's start from the beginning: I emailed a few of my university professor in order to get the materials to study for my exams and so I had to go to Uni and actually talk to [...]
