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!!

Chanda mama

Hey reader !

I was a little tired today when I came back from class, and I needed to get to work but did not, and then I felt a little bad, and then I went there


And I suddently felt much, much better. So if you're feeling tired and down, go there, listen to this one and the other ones too, maybe bake some brownies or something, and everything will suddently feel much, much better.

Good evening !! (Next time, I promise, I'll post a real post and not just a link)

All you need is...

Reader ! Reader ! Hark !

This weekend, my sister M got married. Look at her! Is she not pretty?

Yes she is.

The wedding has been "being prepared" for nearly a year, now, and I've been wanting to tell you, and then I felt silly, because you know, when something's big like that, you never really know what to say, and though I'm OK with being silly, it's more difficult to... well... that's it right here. A very good example.

The ceremony and the party were great, I got a chance to see all of my huge family, and also the huge family of my brother in law, V.

I see my sister M and her brand new husband V pretty often these days since I am studying in Belgium where they are currently living. In fact, V is Belgian, like the chocolate, and that's not the only thing they have in common. Indeed, V is very very nice, and has a knack for being supportive when you're down.

(V, if you hear me, sorry again for the total meltdown this summer, after the interpreting school incident. If you had not been there to look slightly confused and make me a nice, strong coffee, I'd probably have been reduced to an alternative form of life. I'm so very glad my sister M's got you to make her a nice, strong cup of coffee and look slightly confused whenever she needs it, because I wouldn't want my sister to be reduced to an alternative form of life). Indeed :

My sister M's perfect as she is. Have you seen her? Scroll back up, and get a second look. There are not so many things you can be sure of, and everything changes very fast, and nothing is ever for certain, and why did the chicken cross the road, and what about black holes and the speed of light, but one thing I know for sure is: Everyone, everywhere, needs an awesome big sibling like the ones I've got. I should know, I've got three.

I wish I could tell you all about my big siblings, and I wish I could tell you all about how great it is to see all my family and my mum and dad and aunts and uncles and grand-mothers and cousins, only I can't, because by the time I'd be finished just with the immediate circle, I'd be old and gray, and I've got important things to do (like seing them in person). But let it be known that my family, new brother in law included, is the awesomest in the whole universe, and I wish you the same one.

Spread love, Reader!

PS: The great picture's courtesy of my friend V (she's not the same person as my step-brother V. Same initial is all :)! What a nice picture! Thanks!

Call me up before you're dead, we can make some plans instead...

Heeey reader!

I told you this was going to happen... I said "I'll have to work on my thesis, so I'll be here babbling away pretty soon"... Well, here we are. I sat down half an hour ago, highly motivated and wheezy (stupid month of April strikes again... And it's even worse than last year...) and here I am already, not having written a single serious word...

Anyway, still, I'm going to try to keep it slightly short, so that I can still manage to do some work before it's 6 pm.

I just wanted to tell you about a few articles and blogs I have read lately, and how you should go have a look at them and all.

a) This blog, if you want to see beautiful pictures (better to know French, but you can manage without it too). Eerie and cwoool.

b) This interview of David Tennant and Russel T. Davis. I know I should be ashamed. But today, they are showing the first of Tennant's last four episodes as the doctor. Please indulge me. Besides, it's a cool interview.

c) This blog. It's huge and it's funny and it's updated every five minutes or so (I'm sure that woman does not exist. She can't possibly do that many things all alone. I think she's a team. I wish I could have a team, then I could stay on my bed and read her blog all day. Only that's not true, my dream life is not to stay on my bed all day being a no-life. That's just my life in Belgium. Hu hu hu...)

Anyway. I just wanted to tell you about these three. I'll try to go on to write something interesting and serious and academic now. Please, please, let me write something interesting. Please, please, please, I so wish I could hand that paper in some day.

Have a nice day, reader! A bientôt!
