Finals


I like to think I’m a brilliant intellectual.

While listening to classical jazz, with my computer desktop open to a wallpaper that I found after some pointless wanderings on the internet (it’s actually quite pretty), and a nice cup of Earl Grey (a type of black tea that has enough caffeine to keep me awake till 2 am), I sat back in my chair, reading a book.

It was titled: The Biography of T.S. Eliot.

I think it’s fair to say i was bored out of my mind.

I had gotten to the part where T.S. Eliot’s mother was laboring pointlessly over this tiny baby that would grow up to be a poet that i never heard of, when I remembered my finals were near.

I promptly spent the rest of my evening trying desperately to remember all math formulas, grammar stupidities, etc.

However, I think I’ve given you enough thought on my panic with the bane of my life.

It’s actually time for celebration: I’m DONE. WITH. TESTING.

It is May 1st, and I have a month left of school. Sure, I still have more tests to take, but the worst of it is over.

I’m so happy I could cry.

So, in my storm of joy and brilliant sparkles that appear when you’re delirious beyond mind, I will write two more blog posts, all due by tomorrow.

One will be a review, and the other will be part one of a rant.

That’s all I’m saying for now. Happy reading.

PS: This is also on account of not updating for so long. As I said, final’s week. I hope two new posts will be acceptable as an apology.

Lily Allen


Seeing that I’ve made you knowledgable in the areas of my favorite books, movies, etc., I’ve decided to share my opinion on music.

I come from a rather talented family, if I do say so myself. My mother, a musician and professor, also has a knack for writing and math. My father has a way with debating and analyzing. I speak from experience.

So, it’s no surprise that my brother, my sister, and I all are musical, writers, and argumentative.

But to get back on topic, I’ll introduce my sister. Her taste in music is somewhat different from mine, but we have one singer we particularily like: Lily Allen. An Australian singer, she became famous in my mind with her one album: It’s Not Me, It’s You

It fits perfectly with my debate topics.

Anyways, this is one of my favorite songs, one which became a great hit among my friends.  Listen, and tell me what you think of my musical taste.

Yes, the profanity is incredible, but I love her voice. And it’s strange how such a dark message can be transferred into such a catchy tune.
