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!

Netflix Recommendations I: Once Upon a Time Reboot (S7)

If you’re anything like me, chances are you’ll always be looking for something new to watch on Netflix. I mean, how else am I supposed to eat my breakfast/lunch/dinner if not whilst watching something great and entertaining? (Seriously, this has now become an issue – I actually get up earlier than I normally would just so I can watch something during breakfast time.)

Well, if you are a little bit lost and don’t know what to watch, or if you’re just looking for any future possibilities and stuff to put on your list: you came to the right place. I bring you: my Netflix Recommendations – part 1!

Midnight Thoughts: Why I don’t like criticising art

It is currently 11:30 pm. I’ve just finished watching The Age of Adaline (what a great film) and I’m waiting for my roommate to come home from a karaoke night. I’ve also not been feeling well these past two days so I spent most of them lying in bed or on my couch, trying to get a bit better. Which means I’ve had a lot of time to think – hence this post.

It is no secret that I am a huge geek. I love all sorts of different books, TV shows, films; my playlist is just a mix of ‘oldies’ and weird youtube parody songs (although… define weird). I also did theatre for about 7 years of my life and I’ve seen a lot of performances during that time. Not all of them were great and there were definitely times when I would tell my not-so-positive opinion quite loudly and openly. I didn’t see anything wrong with me talking down on someone’s performance… that it until I gave that some thought.

October Favourites: Nerd Edition

I can’t believe October is over! It’s gone by so fast. Now it’s November which means two things: 1) more cosy jumpers and, 2) Christmas is coming, alert, alert, I need to start thinking about presents! Anyway, not to get ahead of myself: let me just appreciate October for the great month it was by sharing with you some of my favourites – geeky style, of course.

FEEL GOOD TV SHOWS: What to watch when feeling down

We all have those days when we feel down. Sometimes there is a good reason for it, sometimes it’s just something that came over you out of nowhere and you can’t quite explain why you’re feeling this way. And when this time comes, it can sometimes be hard to deal with it. Friends, good cup of tea and some delicious snack might help but what I find really useful is to just immerse myself in a different world: and that’s when TV shows come in. If you like me feel the need to escape the real world then read on: these are my favourite TV shows to binge watch when I’m feeling blue.

Busy bee | Second year is hard, man!

I haven’t posted anything during the last month (or a bit over a month, okay, I get it). Oops.

I would say I’m sorry but that wouldn’t be right: I mean, I am sorry that I didn’t have time to write something but I actually didn’t have time. But now I am back and even though there are still many things going on in my life right now, I am ready to come back to my blog and try to keep up with my newest schedule!

As my comeback post, I decided to write some of the things I achieved/did/failed last month. It was a really busy time for me and I’m honestly so happy that it’s slowing down for a bit now. Yay!

Ranking the ‘Harry Potter’ Films 1-8

Recently I wrote a post in which I ranked all the seasons of Game of Thrones – and you, my readers, seemed to enjoy it. To be honest, so did I – I love rankings: both writing them and reading them. I wanted to do another one and what would be better than to rank my all time childhood series: Harry Potter.

Now, in this post I will be ranking the films, not the books. (I might do that one in the future and trust me, the list would look completely different.) I have been a Potterhead for as long as I can remember and I’ve seen all the films so many times I lost count. I love some of them and I am not that fond of some. Well, you can see that for yourselves in my ranking.
