Can’t believe June is over?! Now we’re only 5 months into 2020 like what’s happening? I can’t even keep track of time anymore. This post might be a long since there’s so much to talk about haha.
I don’t know why do I start talking about school right away. Anyway, it was kinda hard to get to used to scioll after ramadan. I mean, thing we’re back to normal. During ramadan, we used to have only about 35 minutes per class so classes were bearable. But when ramadan was over, it was weird to get back to 45 minutes per class routine. Also, during the first week after our eid break, I would sometimes think I’m fasting. We also had our little competition like everyone year. I participated in three different items on the competition and I’m eagerly waiting for all the results to come out before telling out in what position I won haha.
We also had our first serious exam of the year during mid-june. If you ask me about it, I would say that it felt different. I mean, unlike last year, despite the stress and everything I somehow got over it when I started the exam but this year it was different. Like, I was stressed out more that usual. And when I was down with the day’s exam I would be so worried and unsure about everything. It was hard, actually, not the exam but the preparing and writing the exam. The exam was an okay level except accountancy which was confusing a bit.
Personally, June seemed like a long month ever since the beginning. Actually, the approach of June kind of woke me up like I realized that we were only 6 months into the best year and I haven’t done most of my said goals. I started working on my goals little by little and also tried to achieve something.
To be honest with y’all, it was weird to get back to my usual routine after getting used to my ramadan routine. It felt strange in during the day when I remembered that I’m not fasting anymore. Instead of eating lunch, I would delay it to iftar time. Sometimes, I’ll wake up and sit in front of the television and look at everyone around me and be like: yeah! I’m not fasting, right? But once, I got back to school from my eid holiday, everything got back to normal. But I enjoyed eid a lot which can be the best thing about june.
On this month, I borrowed Looking for Alaska and Turtles all the way down from our school library. I borrowed Looking for Alaska during my eid holidays. I was kind of excited to read these book since it’s been so long since I read a book. But honestly speaking, I didn’t like Looking for Alaska. The events of the book went by so quickly and it was sad. I mean, John Green’s books are always sad but this one was depressing especially the ending. It kinda left me sad and thinking about the story for days. On the other hand, I’m in love with Turtles all the way down!! It felt different and I still can’t believe I completed it in only 2 days. Like I used to take one whole week to complete a book. Thankfully, I completed these two books before the approach of my exam so it didn’t leave me distracted.
I tried watching Aladdin but I ended up reaching the middle part and leaving the rest to be watched god-knows-when. I wasn’t able to concentrate on the movie since I was bothered by my exams so I left it for later. But honestly speaking, the movie is great. It just resembles the original one and brought me nostalgia ever since the beginning of the movie. I love the actors so much. I felt like Mena Massoud was meant for the role of Aladdin.
Turtles all the way down by John Green
So far, I think this is my favorite book of of John Green (despite the fact that I read only three of his books). I mean, I think I liked it better than Paper towns. It was obviously better than Looking for Alaska (anything can be better than it). I just love this book. Here is a little summary of it:
Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
Most of the book was revolving around Aza’s thoughts, which was so deep and sometimes sad. It made think of how thoughts can control someone’s life making them miserable. I liked Aza’s personality but she was controlled by her spiral of thoughts and couldn’t live a normal life and I felt bad for that. Not just that, the ending was beautiful. It was like a promising-ending, like it gave me hope that the story continues in a happy way.
A whole new world by Zayn & Zhavia
I’M SO IN LOVE WITH THIS!! Is it okay if I said that I love this version just like the original one? I’m still addicted to this song. I know I’m late to it but it got released on ramadan so I wasn’t able to listen to it then. When I heard Zayn singing the main part I was about to cry or scream idek.. it was perfecttt. Also, I haven’t expected Zhavia’s voice to be like this.. so beautiful, man she’s talented, I swear. I was addicted to this for the whole month, I kept listening to it again and again. I just can’t get over how perfect this song is.
I don’t care by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber
I’m late to this one as well but I’m so obsessed. I mean, they never disappoint us, right?
Señorita by Shawn Mendes & Camilla Cabello
This song is so undescribable… I love everything about this song! Shawn Mendes’ music are perfect plus Camilla being a part of it makes it even more perfecttt.
I thought of trying new types of coffee instead of sticking with the usual creamy latte or mocha. I love this so much and I didn’t it existed before.
