Dear reader,

June has been intense. I had to study non-stop for my competition to become a literature teacher (I’ll have the results this week and I am terrified) (I JUST GOT THE NEWS AND I PASSED!!! I AM A LITERATURE TEACHER!!!) and that’s mostly all I did. I stopped watching tv shows because of it, I haven’t read a lot – I just studied and tried to calm my anxiety and depression. I did go out a few times but that was it.

I’m really glad that this month is over because it has been so challenging and I hope that July will be full of good news! No matter what, July means the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, of the third season of Stranger Things and my departure to London for YALC 2019!

So let’s finally wrap-up June! ๐ŸŒž

On re-reading books

thebookwormofnotredame.png

Dear reader,

For two days in May, my friend Roxanne and I decided to re-read the firstย Harry Potterย book. We had so much fun doing it that I thought of writing a blog post about why I love re-reading books so much, as I re-read at least oneย Harry Potter book per year and have re-read my favourite bookย Lady Midnight six times already.

So lock your sit belts and get readyย to discuss everything about re-reads!

Dear reader,

May has been a great month, and for one reason only: I PASSED THE WRITTEN EXAMS OF MY COMPETITION. Basically, if you don’t know, to become a literature teacher in France (to teach 11-18 years old) you have to pass a “competition” (un concours in French). First you have to pass the written exams (only the best are chosen) and then you have to pass the oral exams (again, only the best are chosen). So basically in a few weeks I’ll be taking the oral exams and if everything goes well I may be a literature teacher in September! How crazy is that?! (I also validated by second semester, woop woop!)

Obviously many other good things happened and I’m proud to say that my life is way healthier today. I’m not 100% okay but I’m getting there. At least July will be brighter!

So without further ado, let’s jump right in and wrap-up the month of May.

Dear reader,

If you follow me on social media you may have noticed my oh so little obsession with the Marvel character Spider-Man, and therefor Peter Parker.

Okay, I can already hear all my friends laughing: I have a big obsession for him.

Recently I asked over Instagram and Twitter if people would be interrested in knowing why I actually love him that much, and surprisingly people have said yes. So here we are: be prepared to know all about my undying love for Spider-Man/Peter Parker.

Dear reader,

April has been a long, fun and tiring month. A lot of things happened in my life, both bad and good, but I always got up and kept trying to do better, to be better. I am extremely proud of myself for everything I survived this month and recovered from, and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for me.

Without further ado, here is my april wrap-up!

My favourite things to do on a rainy day ๐ŸŒง

thebookwormofnotredame (8).png

Dear reader,

I have always been someone who loved the rain. I have so many amazing memories with it, but especially with my grandma who passed away almost a year ago. She was the only person in my family who loved the rain as much as I do and we would always curl up together next to her fire place with a big blanket and a cup of hot chocolate. She would always say that we were the same person because of it, and I have never stopped loving the rain.

Unlike many people I even like being outside when it’s raining. It sure can be annoying but I love the sound and the smell of it – as long as I have an umbrella I am totally okay with it. Obviously I prefer being indoors, so that’s why I’ll present you today my five favourite things to do on a rainy day.

Dear reader,

It feels so weird to blog again. Do I have the time to do so? Not really. But I still want to take it because I miss it. I can’t say I’m fully back because my life is pretty hectic at the moment and I don’t know if I will ever have the time to write enough blog posts before responsabilities start catching me up again, but here I am nonetheless.

Anyway, I am back today with another wrap-up post!
