Where I travelled in 2017 | Amsterdam, Edinburgh and more

One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2017 was to travel more. I’d say I was actually quite successful with that, considering the fact that I am a poor student in a very expensive country who has both uni and work commitments. And because most of my travels were not featured on this blog (as it is quite a new one), I decided to share with you some of my highlights of my travels in 2017.

My 3 favourite films to watch during Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve tomorrow! Can you believe it? I sure as hell can’t.

Christmas means a lot of things: family, joy, happiness… but also tons of food, tacky jumpers, holiday songs and films. And since my blog is all about geeky and nerdy stuff, I decided to write about my 3 ultimate favourite Christmas films and why I love them.

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.
