♡blog diaries #7 – recent reads, ranting about exams + some photography

lowercase intended. (to my mom who says it’s a grammatical error, yes, i am well aware of that)

hey, everyone! it’s time for another entry of blog diaries💜. i’ve been crazy busy with school & exams and i haven’t quite found time to blog. speaking of, i’m actually writing this minutes before i leave for school with my mom for a parent-teacher meet to get my mock exam marks.

i hope you enjoy reading today’s post! ❤


~ 12th march, saturday 10:27 am ~

well, about the pt meet i was talking about – i was kinda scared about my marks even though i know i did well except in maths.. so, it happened, i got my papers, and had a talk with my teachers, heard the same remarks as every.other.time “you’re too silent” “are you just as quiet at home too?” “you should talk more

yeah, i get it. i thought i was actually starting to be more social but according to most of my teachers, i guess not. :/ well, here i’ll be writing down my marks in case i forget them:

  • science – 40/40 (100%)
  • social – 38.5/40 (96.25%)
  • language – 36.5/40 (91.25%)
  • english – 37.5/40 (93.75%)
  • math – 19/40 (47.50%)

atleast i passed, in maths? no, i should’ve done better. but still, everyone did bad on the exam. other than that, i’m quite pleased with my marks. i did get over 90% in 4/5 exams. :)) i also took a couple pictures with my friends, but i won’t be adding them here cuz- i’m in those pictures.. and it would be pointless if i just blurred out the faces xD

on our way back, we got ice-cream 😀 i have my english terminal exam on monday, and one of the chapters in the portion is actually an extract from the book thief.

i’m also reading not here to be liked by michelle quach at the moment, and i’m only a few pages in so i can’t say much about it. completely unrelated, but it was oreo’s 13 month birthday a few days ago, and that’s equivalent to 15 years in dog years – he’s even older than me :O

i also did some photography, look:

i’ve had no time to read because of exams – speaking of – i’ve been thinking and i actually think i like exams? or even studying? maybe it’s because of the portion of chapters for this set of exams this month, but during exam season, a lot of classes don’t happen and we get revision time, and we do group studies at school (“studies” don’t happen then, but it’s still fun) of course, it really is stressful but i made a study plan and everything this time, and i’ve prepared well.

i might change my mind about exams later. i mean, i’m only an 8th grader.

morning!💛it feels nice to be going back to school after the weekend (its only been two days but feels so long-?) today is the day of my english terminal exam, and i’m determined to do better than in my mock exam. it’s going to be hard to beat those scores since they’re already above 35..except maths.

but, i think i’m well prepared! above here is a picture i took yesterday. i think it turned out really cool – the first and third images are of my notes and the one in the center are of my various spotify playlists. i seem to have a playlist for every occasion.

*˚ ♡ ༄ current reads + tbr ~

📚🍂 i am currently reading the book thief by markus zusak – it is an incredible book, narrated from the perspective of death. i have watched the movie years ago, although i don’t remember any of it. i’m not finished with the book yet but i could already rate it 5 stars.

📚🍂 i recently finished not here to be liked by michelle quach! it was a 3 star read for me, first – we have an unlikable main character {eliza} and i seemed to be skim reading a couple chapters. it was a nice book though, it also included topics like feminism.

📚🍂 last week, i read not my problem by ciara smyth. ok, i cannot begin to explain hOW MUCH i LOVE THIS BOOK!! aideen’s sarcasm is top notch. kavi is amazing. (INDIAN REP) holly can go crawl into a hole and die. if you’re looking for a funny, lighthearted, sapphic rivals to lovers book, this is it.

📚🍂 i am almost finished with this is not the jess show by anna carey it’s kind of a really twisted story. i’m curious about what’s going to happen in the end, though.

my cutie
  • i want to read the sun is also a star by nicola yoon
  • some other books on my tbr (to be read) are:
  • eleanor & park by rainbow rowell
  • the midnight library by matt haig

i did well on my english exam (it was hard) , and i finished reading the book thief. i’m afraid i won’t find another book to read as good as this one, because this was such an incredible book. 5/5💫

today was an average day at school, too. i take back whatever i said about liking exams.😪 they stress me out.

what i’ve been doing the past few days is listening to taylor swift’s album reputation on repeat. honestly, i haven’t even listened to some of the songs on the album yet. my favorite so far is call it what you want. there’s something so calming about listening to it.🍃

pics i took w/ my mom’s phone

thank you so much for reading! i hope enjoyed reading and scrolling through the collages of photographs i took.

yesterday, (17th march) my friend joys & i took a leave from school to study math, and even after that, i didn’t do that well in my math terminal🤧 it was hard ok-

well, have a nice rest of your day! see ya♡

i’m so pleased with how the featured image looks 💫💙 smshgjnwnzbfkwka

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I doubt anyone actually likes taking exams.😂
      I guess using lowercase letters is some sort of an aesthetic? I never really use capital letters anyway, even while typing. (But as you can see, I have automatic capitalisation on & I haven’t figured out how to disable it yet, on this device😆)

  3. EXAMS SUCK BIG TIME.
    THEY REALLY DO.
    Wish me luck. (I am only in 6th grade) I have the PFM thing on Monday. I AM NOT NERVOUS BUT STILL.

    P.S. I am in love with the font you use for both the heading and the paragraphs. Can you please (I am begging you sorry) tell me the font?

      1. I ACTUALLY DID DO GREAT AHH!! 40/40 in science. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!
        AND I SURVIVED 24 HOURS WITHOUT MY LAPTOP-
        More on that in an upcoming blog post-

        Yeah, I just checked. It’s called courier prime but apparently, courier prime is the font of the heading and I also want to know the font of the normal paragraphs\text?
        If you’re really struggling to find it, then um, just go into the customization page of your website and click on fonts. Then you can tell me the font written under the title ‘base font’.

        I am annoying you by this point but like…I am in love with that font you use as your base font!!!

  4. Exams suck…..there’s nothing much that can be said. But I hope you’ll be able to get through the rest of the exams with ease!

    I’m so glad you enjoyed reading the book thief. That is a book that must be rated a 5/5 or a 10/10 stars. Also, Oreo looks super cute in these pictures 😍

  6. I love the lowercase aesthetic too, but my mum always says the same ‘it isn’t grammatically correct’ 😂😂 I love reading your diary and well done on all your grades. Those are some amazing results… best of luck with all your schoolwork and exams going forward.
    I remember the first time I read The Book Thief… ah-mazing. It felt like a work of art and death as the narrator will never be topped! I’ve not heard too much about Not My Problem but consider it added to the TBR. It sounds great !! Love the whole set-up of this post… beautiful ✨💞✨
