Top 5 Films of 2017

I love films. I watch them all the time, I go to the cinema as much as I can and my Netflix list is probably as long as the Great Wall of China. I love films because they offer escape, entertainment and a good excuse to snack on unhealthy food. They are also my favourite kind of social activity (because you get to be quiet and not social at all, yet it still counts as spending time with people).

2017 has brought many films to the table. I was excited to see many of them and I went to the cinema so many times. I have made a list of all the films I watched, and I picked my favourite five to share with you.

Where I travelled in 2017 | Amsterdam, Edinburgh and more

One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2017 was to travel more.

My Favourite Online Dictionaries: Language Student Edition

As you may or may not know, I am a language student. I study joint honours German and Italian at university whilst also doing an international mobility course in Japanese. Oh, and did I mention that I am Czech and English is not my native tongue? My point here is not to boast but to show that I have done a lot of language learning in my life. And one thing I learned during those years of trying to navigate which language I should be using in which situation: finding a good online dictionary is important… and tough.

I decided to share with you some of my favourites. If you ever need to search for a word you can’t remember or check if you’re using the correct connotation, you might like to use one of these!
