The Weekly Hufflepuff #32

I’m so exhausted I blame Eurovision. Also disappointed but not surprised that Douwe didn’t win. If you’re a bit confused right now: Eurovision is the European Hunger Games a ‘friendly’ singing competition between European countries, Israel and for the second time Australia. It’s not friendly though. Alliances are broken, new ones are formed, wars are started (EVERYONE GAVE THEIR NEIGHBOURS A LOT OF POINTS EXCEPT GERMANY AND BELGIUM THANKS GUYS). Anyway, there are two semis and of course a big finale, so basically it’s one week full of partying

I’m still reading Uprooted, but that’s not the book it’s fault. It was a busy week with school and Eurovision. I am enjoying it though, but I think I’m shipping the wrong ship (what I mean is that it will most likely sink because I’m pretty sure the other ship is going to be canon)

personal

IT WAS EUROVISION AND I HAVEN’T RECOVERED YET. They had a new voting system this year so that until the last second you have NO IDEA who is going to win. IT WAS SO INTENSE GUYS. But it was also a lot of fun haha. This year was probably my favourite edition: Sweden was a great host and the hosts themselves were hilarious and fab. Ukraine you know how you can top this right?

You have the opportunity, so take it.

There was also the fact that this year I had the Blog Squad to talk to about Eurovision and it was so much fun not to mention hilarious. Shading on countries together, cheering others on, making jokes, mishearing things (‘so who’s gay now’, ‘I lick my boobs’ and ‘massive balls’ instead of ‘so who’s scared now’, ‘I lick my wounds’ and ‘massive walls’), joking, yelling at Australia (sorry we do love you guys but we take Eurovision VERY serious) and just having a great time. Thank you guys for making Eurovision even better ❤

Eurovision took up my entire life this week guys, I’m not even kidding. Like what happened for the rest of the week? Who knows. Not me

what I posted-2

elsewhere

And that was it since Eurovision took over my life and I barely read posts 🙈

There’s a big chance I won’t be active this week, since I really need to focus on school right now. If I get a chance to take a picture for one of the reviews I’ve already written I might post that, but otherwise I probably won’t post or read any blog posts.

Anyway, how was your week? If you watched Eurovision: HOW ARE YOU DOING? If you didn’t watch Eurovision: what are you reading? Or eating? Talk to me about books and food guys (can you tell I’m hungry)

Better Late Than Never Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Kayleigh for nominating me! This was um… Two months ago. But never late than never right? Don’t forget to check out her amazing blog!

The Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you for this award (include a link to their blog)
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award – you might include a link to this.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Again an award that I’ve seen going around the blogosphere for so long, that I don’t know who has done this and who has not! And I know not everyone likes to do tags twice like me, so I won’t be nominating anyone :) Do know that I think all of you deserve this award!

7 facts:

1. Pokémon Yellow was my first Pokémon game and I’d love to see a remake for the 3DS.
2. I used to recognise a lot of flowers and could actually tell you their names. Sadly I’ve forgotten most.
3. I hate running, but I love walking! Especially if the scenery is nice.
4. When we were in the bus from Berlin back to school my friend and I thought we had left one of the teachers behind. We could not find him anywhere and actually started panicking. It seemed very possible to us, as he was often alone instead of with the other teachers (which we said aloud, except we said it more along the lines of ‘the other teachers dumped him’). We were this close to telling one of the other teachers, when we discovered that he was sitting in front of us.

5. I loyally watch Eurovision every year, though I do not always support my country’s entry (like this year). If you’re not familiar with Eurovision: it’s basically the Singing Games where alliances can be broken at any moment and wars threaten to break out BECAUSE WE GAVE YOU 12 POINTS AND YOU GIVE US NOTHING?!
6. I miss the Russian Grannies by the way. PARTY FOR EVERYBODY.

7. I used to have a canary called Arie. He was the cutest and sweetest thing, but sadly he died almost a year ago. I still miss him.

Who of you is already excited for Eurovision 2016? I mean, this year was really boring with ballad after ballad. I WANT REAL EUROVISION NEXT YEAR. I WANT A PARTY FOR EVERYBODY AND FREE ALCOHOL AND VAMPIRE DUBSTEP AND GLITTER OUTFITS AND JUST EUROVISION. No ballads. I don’t want to hear one ballad okay.
