My apologies for it being a week since I last posted. I've just been so busy lately, blogging has hit the backburner a little bit. But today I have my March wrap up for you!
A lot happened in March. It saw the end of the holidays at the beginning, where I was studying like crazy for mocks. BUT the best news came for me on the 1st of May. There was one in the five universities that I really wanted to go to. They only accept 25 people a year, and I really wasn't sure they would accept me. But I got my conditional offer! I was over the moon. But it also means I will have to work super hard during my real exams in hopes of getting the required point count (which is super high >.>) to be able to meet their conditions and go.
I had my mock exams and they went pretty well? I could do better though. They gave me a solid indication of which subjects need more work.
I worked out a little less because I'd been busy. But clean eating is going really well. It's gradually changing my diet,,, I feel less snack compulsion and am less likely to take a second helping. I'm also checking labels now, for sugar count. I never thought that would be :P
I took some time to relax and watch my series a bit. Finally watched the Sherlock New Year Special.
My basketball team went to SWITZERLAND! We didn't get to see much of the country, because we were playing a tournament though. We were 4th place, losing out on third position by 1 point. But it was a lot of fun. We also had a team night where we all went out to dinner. The pasta was great, and came in huge helpings. The team shared a nutella pizza. I didn't eat it because I don't like pizza or nutella but I was so surprised. Nutella pizza IS a thing?! D:
I applied for a summer teaching job in China but didn't get it :( I'm going to keep looking and keep my fingers crossed.
Oh, and I finally saw Beauty and the Beast with my friends. Loved it. Better than the original animation, in my opinion.
If you want to see more of my daily shenanigans and life updates, make sure to add me on snapchat!
Most likely because I was studying so much, and then traveling, I barely read anything. I also had my first reading slump ever. Not fun.
I read Article Three by Anna Jakobsson Lund, but I won't tell you too much because I'll have a review coming out soon (hopefully.)
I also read The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis. I was looking forward to getting back to the Narnia world. It was a quick and easy read, and I enjoyed it.
After that, I got into my slump. I was surprised that the novel which helped me escape the slump was a Dutch book. It's called Vals Spel by Mirjam Mous, which translates as False Play. I usually don't read books in Dutch because it's my second language and I read so much slower than I am used to. But I really enjoyed this murder mystery, and it sucked me in. So I didn't mind.
So my TBR for this month just includes books I started while in my slump. Hopefully, I can finish them.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
New Moon by Stephanie Meyer (reread)
The Silent Songbird by Melanie Dickerson
Boy 7 by Mirjam Mous (Dutch)
