I love ballet. Ballet is my life. I've been dancing since I was 3 years old!

Though I know I'm not the sort of person that is really flexible and would be a successful ballerina, I try to be better than anyone in my ballet class. I try to be a better ballet dancer!

I've been stretching more than usual lately. In fact, a lot more. I get most inspiration from ballet dancers who upload photos of themselves stretching onto Instagram or just from the internet.

My favorite stretch is the scorpion and the needle pose. This stretch requires a high level of flexibility, so I haven't really mastered it yet, though I could kind of do it. However, I could get the scorpion pose! (Left - scorpion / Middle - needle / Right - Me doing scorpion)  
Sorry it's twisted
For those of you out there who dance ballet too, please begin to acknowledge this, stretching today is better than tomorrow. I believe that stretching is really difficult for me because (1) I'm not naturally flexible and (2) I wasn't willing to stretch when I was young, so it's harder for me to now.

I try my best in everything that links with ballet, including exams. I get distinctions in every ballet exam.

Ballet is a life-long experience of pain, beauty, and enjoyment. You can't just stop all of a sudden and decide to quit! Ballet takes a long time to master successfully, but would let you know what real happiness and gracefulness is.

Warm Bodies

Warm bodies is a movie about the romance of R (Nicholas Hoult), a brain-eating zombie, and Julie (Teresa Palmer).

An apocalypse has turned the world upside down. The disease has transformed many humans into terrible zombies that eat people. If you get bitten by a zombie, you become one.

When R and other zombies rush into a science lab to eat people, he sees Julie, and immediately falls in love with he.

R brings Julie back "home" which is basically the local airport, and keeps her with him. As both fall in love, R's heart starts up again...

Their love has affected the other zombie's, starting their dead hearts again too and turning them from zombies, back to human again!

The amazing journey of their unconditional love for each other is absolutely fascinating. It has been rated with  4 stars! I would totally recommend it. (By the way, I've watched it again and again for like 5 times and I don't even get bored...)

Remember, everything starts out a little scary...

"You've started something, and it's affecting the others too..."(Warm Bodies)


Book Report - Radiance

Ok, so you would think this is really weird but I've finished another book again...I just love to read!

This book is called Radiance by Alyson Noel. It is a 200 page fiction novel that talks about a twelve-year-old girl called Riley Bloom that has, unfortunately, died in a car accident.

Riley crosses the bridge to afterlife with her mom and dad. However, her sister, Ever, has survived, leaving Ever as an orphan in the earth plane.

Everyone in Here & Now(Here- place where Riley lives after she is dead / Now- when you ask people of Here what time it is, they'll answer, "Now.") has a personal guide, a person who bosses you around and tells you what to do. Riley's guide is Bodhi, a nerdy, possibly cute guy (without his glasses) that has died of bone cancer.

As Riley complete's her mission as a Soul Catcher with Bodhi, she finally discovers who she really is, but will she change her mind about wanting to be human again...

This book would suit teenager readers that would love to discover what authors write about afterlife. Actually, no, it would suit everyone, because it is an amazing book!

Bite the Bullet

Bite the bullet is an idom which means doing something you don't really want to do but you have to. This idom comes from a long time ago when people didn't have anesthetics but had to do a surgery, they would give the patient a lead bullet to bite on to distract him/her from the pain. 

A time when I had to bite the bullet was when I had to learn how to wear my contacts. I was so scared because my friend told me that it would be VERY uncomfortable. 

I was opening my eye WIDE but I still couldn't get it in! 

I was telling myself, get this thing in and don't keep mom waiting!, though I knew that she wouldn't mind. 

My whole body was on nervous mode, and I couldn't keep things straight. 

I was even talking to myself. Get. That. In.

 I was struggling to wear those contacts because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to take them off! I had to bite the bullet and finally, I managed to wear and take the contacts out properly.         

It was the worst thing ever but totally worth it. Was there a time you had to bite the bullet too?

The drink I love MOST in Starbucks is Chocolate Chip Cream. For those of you who do not live in my area, Chocolate Chip Cream is a chocolate slushy with chocolate chips added. You can choose to have the cream on or not, but I always have it on because I think the cream is the best part of the drink! They also squirt chocolate jam on top of the cream.

I've starting to drink cold chocolate more occasionally recently because at my new school, there is a coffee shop where as at primary school, there is none. There have been compliments on Starbucks's Chocolate Chip Cream from my friends so I decided to try it out. Now I can't stop buying it! It is really hard to resist it because there is a Starbucks shop near where I live...

I have always wanted to try the Chocolate Chip Frappe because I love chocolate, but then I'm really scared that I wouldn't be able to sleep at night after I drink it. Please tell me if it is caffeinated because I am desperate to know! 

Do you like any drink from Starbucks? I know that it's mostly adults who drink Starbucks but I still love it a lot! Comment which drink you LOVE from Starbucks for me please!

Book Report - My Sister's Keeper

My Sister's Keeper was a number one bestseller in 2008 and was made into a movie in 2009. This book is by Jodi Picoult and is a four hundred page novel about a girl called Kate Fitzgerald. Kate has a rare form of leukemia and needs a donor. She has been suffering from this form of cancer since she was two, which is about fifteen years. Unfortunately, her older brother, Jesse, was not a match for her. Her parents then decides to create a child that would be the perfect match for Kate; Anna.

Thirteen years later, when Anna was in grade 9, she went to Mr Campbell Richard, a famous lawyer of the town, that she will be suing her parents for the rights of her body. The game has just begun...

This is the most recent book that I have finished reading. It is also my favorite book because it is written by my favorite author, Jodi Picoult, and in the movie, Anna is played by Abigail Breslin, my favorite child actress. To my opinion, this book would fall into the category of realistic fiction. It would suit teenagers or adults that like a book with a lot of conflict of arguing. Some of the contents in this book are more suitable for mature or grownup people.

This is my favorite book and I really enjoyed reading it! I hope you will read this book in the future! Remember, don't start the book unless you are so comfortable you're sure you will be able to stay in this position for hours, because My Sister's Keeper is such a page turner! It will keep you guessing until the end...
