My bucket list.

For me the beginning of a new year is when I start school, not when the number of the year changes. So yeah and each beginning of school year I make myself a mental bucket list which I usually don’t manage to achieve. So today I’m going to share it with you guys and maybe sharing it will make it more achievable.

Revise each evening what I have learnt in my science lessons.

Me and Science we are not friends, you could call us enemies but not friends. Don’t start talking about chemistry because that’s the worse one…I’m rubbish at science and if I don’t start improving now I’ll probably won’t pass GCSE science which will suck because Science is pretty damn important. I want to start revising now because I have chosen quite hard GCSEs and next year if I have to revise loads of science I might give up or cry everyday.

Take photographs whatever the weather.

Last year I had a phase where I didn’t like taking photos anymore, I just found the world boring. This happened just after summer ended it lasted until this year’s summer started so I think I just don’t like taking photos in bad weather. I need to make the most of Autumn, winter and spring because all seasons are truly beautiful, I just can’t see it yet.

Read more.

I feel as if I choose YouTube over reading a bit to often. I feel so bad for doing so, it kills me from the inside. If you have any book recommendation I would love to hear them!

Do more art.

I just want to improve my art skills especially in drawing. And also I want to draw/paint other things than faces because that’s the only that I’m drawing lately.

Be more confident.

A year and a bit ago, I changed school and country, I think that lowered my confidence a lot, I’ve became a super shy person who felt awkward and felt like nobody new the real me. The past week, the first back to school week , I felt a change, I was more confident which I was hugely proud about, I don’t know what made me confident again. It could of been because the fact that I met a lot of new people or maybe the fact of restarting. Whatever the reason I’m happy about it.

Go swimming.

I love going swimming but I don’t go that often because most of the time when my family wants to go I’m on my period so that’s great, so when I’m not on my period I need to organise swimming pool trips. Plus swimming is the only sport that I actually like.

Yep this year I didn’t aim to do more sport and get healthy because I know I’m not going to achieve it, it’s been  3 years that I’ve wanted to be healthier and sportier though thinking about it I have managed to be healthier so that’s a good thing I guess. I know this post have been posted on Saturday and not on Friday, I don’t have an excuse for that so sorry.

Anyway I have to go to town now so bye ! Oh and tell me what you want to achieve this year in the comments!

Matched: Book Review (No spoilers)

Hello to all the book worms out there!

“Why are some things easier to write than say”

I wanted to write a book review for quite a long time now but as I am a very slow reader I don’t write them that often. Oh and I just want to add that while I am writing this review I am boiling with my hands who are all sweaty touching the warm computer’s keyboard.

Anyway let’s begin with review:

matched
(not my image but I love it!)

Matched by Ally Condie

1st book of the trilogy.

3.5/5 stars. (My opinion)

366 Pages.

Important characters : Cassia, Ky and Xander.

I gave this book a 3/5 because for me it is not a memorable book (for me anyway) . I wanted to read this book for a long time because a lot of people said it was a really good book. I was highly disappointed I found that nothing much happened in the book, It is very slow, I know that this is a series but I think that something really exciting should happen in the first book to get the reader wanting to carry on. One thing that I loved about the book was that they were great quotes and metaphors.

” I am trapped in glass and I want to break out and breathe deep but I’m afraid that it will hurt.”

I liked the relationships that the characters had between each other and how each character developed throughout the book especially Cassia the main character.

If you have ever read the Giver, this book is very VERY similar to it, It’s basically the same but with a different storyline. So if you are a fan of the giver you will love this book! I also read this book I think is because it is a Dystopian novel. I am pretty sure that dystopian novels can speak to me or control me because through this past year I have read loads of them! At least 10!

Here are some reviews to get you excited if you want to read it:

“Matched is the hottest YA title to hit the bookstores since hunger games”~ Entertainment Weekly

“Unmissable”~ Marie Closer

“Teen read of the year”~ Irish independent.

Would I read the other books? Probably not unless I don’t have anything else to read.

I hope this book review was helpful to you. Have a good day!
