This Week Vol. 6

I haven't done a This Week post in a while, but I couldn't not do one after the week I've had. I spent the entire weekend (20 hours!) on a TEFL course, learning to teach people English, and it was so incredibly awesome. I was soooo nervous beforehand, I had a full on anxiety attack and was so close to just turning back at the door. Thank goodness I didn't though, because it was so great, and I think I've found my calling. It was a fantastic weekend where I met some really cool people and learned so much about what it takes to be a good teacher! 

I've been listening to this song repeat, it's very quickly working its way up my Most Played list.

I loved this couch gag from the first episode of season 26 (what?!) of The Simpsons! I thought it was so funny, and so weird that it was just perfect (I actually cried from laughing so much). It's just a shame the episode was pretty shit. I know this is old news now, but I started writing a Friday Favourites post aggges ago and never had the space to upload it.

I saw Nightcrawler and Interstellar this week, and both of them were great in their own ways. Nightcrawler was my kind of film, it was dark and creepy and really made you think. It was similar to Breaking Bad and Dexter in that the protagonist is not exactly the nicest person, but I really like that. It gives you something to think about. Interstellar was also pretty great, it was quite slow to begin with, then it seemed like it was trying too hard to be Gravity, but then it got good and I have to admit that I did shed a tear right at the end.

I loved reading Elise's series 'this is my business story', where she documented her not-so-usual story of building her business. I'm way back at the beginning of her story, just graduated and looking for jobs, but reading about how Elise managed to turn all this around to become a successful, self-employed woman doing what she loves, is really helping me not to get caught up in my failures.

I also met up with my school friends this week and we went to go and visit one of their universities, SOAS. It was strange going to a University in London because it was just so different from mine, but it seemed quite lively and political which was cool. They also advised me to go ahead with something I've been thinking about doing for a while, which is uploading videos of myself singing to YouTube. I really love to sing, and have been told I'm quite good (*blushes*), but I'm just waaaaaaay too shy to ever sing in front of people. I'm not sure if I'll be any better on YouTube, I might get too obsessed with how my hair looks or how my mouth makes weird shapes when I sing and not end up uploading anything, but I'm hoping not. I'm planning to film my first video this week because I've not got much on, and from next week I'm starting my new job at Paperchase (wooo money!), so, you heard it here first! I think my first song is going to be 'His Eye is on the Sparrow' from Sister Act 2.
