What is this blog all about?

The main purpose of this blog is to give an overview of the things I do, in my everyday life, in order to improve my English. Since I am a very lazy person, I mostly read, and watch movies, and do things which make it possible for me to improve my vocabulary, my grammar and my accent without getting bored... So this blog is going to be about the books I read, the movies I watch, and some other things which I find relevant (or not)...

I hope you'll like it! Don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any suggestions concerning what I should write about!!

Lonely, I'm so lonely...

Well, well, well...
I had my first tutoring-session today! It was very interesting and I can't wait for the next one to follow, but I'm a little sad because so few people came!! We were only 4, (me included), which was very disappointing! It looks like I'm the one who's going to have to bring cookies to the students to keep them coming...
Anyway, that's not the main thing I wanted to tell you, reader, what this post really is going to be about is the "tarte aux billes" (I guess "marble-pie" would be the best translation into English...) It's a cool place in Strasbourg where I spent a great evening yesterday with my friends M&M's, A, another A, and V of course, you already know her. Was nice to see them all! We chatted and ate, which is what normal people do in a restaurant, but in this one, you can "rent" some games, which is pretty cool. We played one called "Time's up", where you have to help people guess the names of celebrities. It's a kind of elaborate version of the Post-it game (you know, the game where you have only 10 questions to guess who you are). First, you can talk and give a kind of little "definition" of the person on the cards, then you can only say a word (for the same cards, so it's pretty easy, you just need to have a good memory) and then you can only make an imitation of the person on the card. We had people like Krouchtchev or Edvard Munch, so it's not that easy to mimick.

A gave us a wonderful Oriental-dance lesson (trying to make us guess Lawrence of Arabia -uh... I don't know really... is it Lawrence of Arabia in English?? Or am I sounding really stoopid?), and I imitated a windmill, (I was trying to help people guess the name of a famous French resistant). It's a pretty cool game. Besides, you can eat cool stuff with Nutella on it, and isn't that the main goal of any life-form on the planet?? Of course, V and I, who were just coming out of one more yoga session, were particularly energized and our chakras were wide open, so I guess it helped us exress so many different personalities through our body language. Did you know, reader, that you shouldn't take a shower after a yoga session? It disturbs your energies, and it's not a good idea at all.
Well, I hope you're glad that you learnt so much about yoga and places to hang out in in Strasbourg, I'll go away now, because I need to work a little... Buh... Too much to do! I came back home really late tonight because of silly train-strikes in France, and now I'm completely dis-motivated. Un-motivated. De-motivated. I don't know, but I'm sure you see what I mean... Good night reader!!
