And then, when I came back, school hit me like a big fat truck, that is, work, work, work, and more work. Teachers really don't have hearts I sometimes think. Worst thing, soon as I get home from absolutely FREEZING Germany I caught a cold, to be more specific, a pharyngitis that turned into bronchitis and rendered me speechless - literally. Currently I wish I could do sign language, the only way I can talk is by whispering and in lessons I need a translator to ask my questions.. And worse.. people think it's SO funny!
God, I gotta stop complaining.. Well I know that I have had a stressful time but I still managed to watch some interesting stuff while doing art homework and whatnot..
The first thing I want to talk about is Paul Rudd's new film This Is 40. I watched it with quite high expectations because the trailer is funny, and in Knocked Up the couple were very funny characters, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped I would. To primarily angry middle aged people who can't get their sh*t together does not provide a lot of entertainment value for me.. Maybe I'm just not old enough yet, I should have asked my mom to watch it with me.
This film I did watch with my mom, Becoming Jane, the film about Jane Austen's life featuring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy. I actually did enjoy this film, as I do most films that play in this time where people are civilised. I am such a sucker for a good romance... Don't judge!!

I honestly doubt Mary can every be happy again, I think she might go crazy or something. Also, if more actors who are that important quit, say Maggie Smith dies of a heart attack (although this would be reasonable... She IS old), I will stop watching it. NO KIDDING.
Something I also won't be watching anymore is Gossip Girl, I know the series ended aaages ago, but I only finished the last episodes over the hols.. The last episode was a bit cheesy and a bit cramped full of everything but it was still good. Except for I didn't like Dan as 'Gossip Girl' I honestly thought it was going to be Nelly Yuki or Dorota, that would have been sooo much more interesting. As well as I didn't want Dan ending up with Serena, in the beginning they were a cute couple,... kind of.. but then they split up and got back together so many times that it got boring. I was hoping for a little bit of Dan/Georgina action and maybe a bit of Serena/Nate!! But I must say Georgina/Jack Bass was also kind of genius. Well, one thing I have to applaud though is Blair and Chuck, for a long time in the middle I wanted them to be apart 'cos Chuck had turned into a mega-gigantic-annoying-twit but now love is in the air again.. Yay, and yeah... The wedding dress: beauteous, gorgeous, wondrous, incredulous.. I don't know how better to describe it!! Jenny and Eric where also squeezed in there in the end, and a lot of other people, who I had kind of forgotten who they were... and Lilly and Rufus finally united again. Amen. That's how I like it!! I'm gonna miss the divas of the upper east side!! But the end was kind of hinting at a second generation.. We will see, I almost hope they leave it how it is because I think with another generation they have the power to absolutely ruin it!
