Updates, updates, updates…

Hello again readers! Wow, I haven’t blogged for such a long time! Life has just been getting ahead of me. So, recent developments. Tests. Tests. Tests. The past week has just been tests. I guess it wasn’t too bad, but it definitely is not something I would want to do everyday. We had a persuasive writing test, a maths test, a mandarin test and a science test. I don’t think you could fit any more tests into one week! I think my favourite and least favourite at the same time was my persuasive writing test. It was based on refugees in detention centres. It was good because I love writing, but bad because it was such a sad topic to research! I don’t think I have ever seen so many sad stories in my life. Of course I also like my science test, mainly because it was easy, and my maths, because it made me think. My mandarin test, just meh. It wasn’t good or bad really, just a bunch of translations. I can’t imagine what my life will be like in Senior school!

Anyway, moving on to a more interesting topic. Have you seen the Emoji movie? I saw it today. I couldn’t say it was the best movie I ever watched, but it was based around a “meh” emoji so I think they did a pretty good job. It was a little typical but was cool at the same time. Imagine being able to actually physically go into apps! And it got me thinking, there should be GIF emojis! I mean, I’d love to be able to have those. So my verdict is that if you haven’t seen it, it is a little kiddy and predictable, but good for a lighthearted movie night with your friends. I score it a 7/10.

Also, have you read the book Un Lun Dun? The answer is probably a no as I don’t think it is a very well known book, but this book by China Meville is definitely worth a read. I am only half of the way through it but I can tell it is a good book. It is about a girl and her friend who end up in Un-london. A.K.A a place where all the lost things from London end up. And there’s this man-eating smog that she is supposed to defeat. It is really intriguing, if not slightly silly with carnivorous giraffes. I love it, and depending on what you like, I think you would too. I am also reading a book called the Bone Sparrow, but at the moment I am just finding it downright sad. I recommend it if you can deal with some disturbing stuff and a little bit of heartbreak, but definitely not if you’re younger than 11.

But unfortunately I have homework to finish now (sigh), and will have to stop blogging (groan) but I promise to keep up with it more. Keep checking up for more posts and don’t lose heart!
