Getting pretty late for this month’s review and I actually watched this when it first came out, that seems ages away!
Plot Newt Scamander is a British wizard who has arrived in America with a suitcase full of.. well… fantastic beasts! He meets many people along the way, including a muggle and two witches. However, obscurials are terrorising New York and Newt has to use the creatures to save the day. I’ve made it sound really cliche but it’s honestly amazing!
My Thoughts I thought that it was such an amazing film and it was lovely to have the world in which Harry Potter lives in brought to life again. I think it was a great time to bring it out because so many people were still Potterheads but it was brought out such a long time ago that this brings it back and makes you love Harry Potter once more. It’s also great to have such a well thought out plot, courtesy of J.K Rowling, which is very engaging but there aren’t massive plot holes that make it cringey. It’s so easy to make magical things childish but this remains something for all audiences. I like the fact that the main character is British because what we know from Harry Potter is the English system of how magic is controlled so we know what Newt is talkig about and can share his confusion at times! I know I’ve said this for every review I’ve done- Sorry!- but I would definitely recommend it because it has amazing characters and such an engaging plot line.
Haven’t done a post in ages! Wow! But I thought that I’d really like to do a Christmas post so it’s what I love about Christmas, although there is an endless list!
Although there’s not many new songs, other than Santa tell me to be honest, the classics are still amazing and I love songs such as Last Christmas and Jingle Bells. Hearing them always cheers you up!
Food at Christmas is always amazing with huge Christmas dinners and gorgeous puddings. I especially love pigs in blankets, truffles and drinking hot chocolate.and although most people hate them, I love brussel sprouts!
I’m talking about both giving and receiving because it’s great to make someone happy but let’s face it, we love getting presents! I love the thought of not knowing what I’m going to get which makes a lovely surprise.
Family and friends
Christmas is always a great time for meeting up with those who you love and really enjoying yourself. This doesn’t require any money but can cause a lot of joy and make you feel super festive!
Decorations and the run up to Christmas
I love how at the start of December loads of people out up their decorations and make you feel really festive. I love it because it brightens up the dark winter days and it’s so lovely to go out and see all the pretty fairy lights and decorations.
Sorry for the short post but I don’t have that much time to write it! Hope you have an incredible Christmas, love you all!
So I’ve decided to do my first movie review! I really enjoy this film, I watched it ages ago but I’m re-watching it now.
Two siblings, Andi and Bruce, are living with their foster parents and look after a stray dog, Friday. Their foster parents don’t care about them and feed them the most disgusting stuff. But what if something were to change for them? Something maybe like trespassing into an abandoned hotel to look after dogs. They’ll make lots of friends along the way, both human and dog.
I really enjoyed watching this as it’s such a lovely film with adorable dogs and a heartwarming story line. I think the characters have been really well chosen and their characteristics are amplified when with they’re around the dogs. I know I say this about every review I’ve done but I would definitely recommend it, especially if you’re having a bad day and you just want to cuddle up on your bed and want to watch a hotel with everything from automatic feeding, cinemas and throwing machines. It really makes you want to open a hotel yourself and save dogs from the street! It’s such a fun and lovable film that you can’t help but smile. 🙂
Recently, I’ve been feeling a lot better about myself. Not about me in relations to other people as I still don’t feel like they like me around but just with myself. Yesterday, for Children In Need, it was none school uniform and I did my makeup and I felt a crazyyyyy thing that I never feel. I felt pretty. Not as in popular kid pretty or particularity pretty compared to a lot of people but I looked in the mirror and was happy about it. About 3 people came up to me and said that I looked pretty. It made me super happy and feel much better about myself.
Also, I’ve been super happy about my tests. I told like to talk about things like this normally as I feel like it makes me seem like a show-off and arrogant. But it’s not too nice for me because I can only be inwardly happy due to feeling awful about being happy in case others didn’t do as well. So, I’m so, so, so, so sorry if this comes across as arrogant! I honestly don’t want it to be like that!
Anywhale, previously, I’ve always been able to get top marks without doing any revision- although, I’ve always tried very hard in lessons. But at the start of this year I didn’t feel like I was doing as well, my grades were sinking in comparison to others- I was average. I felt like everything was going wrong, my grades were lowering and everyone around me seemed to not care about me. It was a really hard time for me.
But, we did quite a few tests back recently and I was just so happy about the results. We have these small maths tests after every topic and I got top on both of them, with full marks of one and almost full marks on my other if I weren’t 0.1 off the actual answer. GRRRRR. But then we had an English test, English is definitely not one of my strongest subjects, but we got it back and I was so happy with the results! I wasn’t top but I was near the top and it gave me lots more confidence. And finally, I got the results back from the science test and I was one mark off full marks! Top mark in my year, I was super duper happy!
Anywhale, onto the ‘plan’. I’ve decided that because it’s not that far away until I’m doing my GSCEs, I want to do something productive each day. It can be somehting small or something bigger, but I don’t want to do a series of pointless (I’m so sorry Netflix, I love you really!) things everyday but I also have to ake into account that I get bored by revision, which why I hardly do any, so there’s be both big and small things to do, depending on my mood. So I’ll have to do one thing from the list each day.
Some of the things:
Do one activity on duolingo (Spanish is my weakest subject). This will probably the one that I do most because it’s the quickest. I doubt I’ll keep a streak though bceause I had a streak of 56 and then lost it due to just one day. ONE. And before that, I had a streak in the 30s which I also lost due to 1 day. GRRRRR.
Complete a revision sheet (Just a small thing on some topics so that for tests, I’ve doing maths ones at the moment, I won’t have to do as much revision because everything will be together)
Write a blog post (sounds strange that I’m including it but they take a long time to write and it’s nice to get your thoughts down)
Homework, and yes, I am counting this because after doing it, I will just want to relax.
Revision. If I have a test then I’d rather revise for it than do something else!
Doing something for my DoE
Writing some more on my story
Basically everything except scrolling through social media and pinterest, watching Netflix and watching YouTube although I’ll still do all of those things!
Thank you for reading! I hope you’re having a lovely day 🙂
I love to draw because when it goes right it’s so satisfying and you just sit in silence and concentrate on the drawing and not the world around you. I’m not the best at drawing but I’d love to be better and I really hope that I can improve.
Also, when you get compliments n your drawings you feel like you could just jump for joy because for someone to appreciate your hard work is just lovely.
Don’t know why I decided to do this but it’s just a little thing that I came up with- sorry that it’s so lame aha 🙂 If you’d like more poems please comment and say what you’d like them about!
