Life Lately | #4


So I kind of forgot about these posts but I am back on it! For all of you who wish me luck for my interview, thank you so much! Unfortunately, it wasn't to be, but onwards and upwards eh? Anyway..

I went | Home! I've only been home once, and to be honest, unless I have to go home, I never do. 4 hours, 3 trains and 2 cities definitely ain't worth it! However, I did get to sleep in my new room which I really like (and can't wait to decorate in a few months!), and I went to the local pub with one of my best friends. It was actually a really lovely night.

I read | The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion - you need a book when you are on a train for that long and in all fairness, this book did speed time up dramatically! If you've read The Rosie Project, which is the prequel to this, then this book is definitely worth a read. I've reviewed this book too :)

I bought | V FESTIVAL TICKETS! Can you tell me spending ban is well and truly over? But y'know, I think this is an appropriate time to use YOLO? I think it'll definitely be worth it! Let me know if you're going!

I watched | The Railway Man (and The Theory of Everything another 3 times - watch it if you haven't already!). But yes, the Railway Man was actually really good. I don't know why, but whenever I see a serious looking cover and Colin Firth, I automatically assume it's going to be boring but I'm always so, so wrong! Definitely worth a watch!

Well, you are clearly destined for something far more fabulous! ;) I haven't seen either The Railway Man or The Theory of Everything! I need to get on it!

I liked The Railway Man too! V tickets don't count in a spending ban, it's an experience not a top you're gonna wear once ;) x

You're so lucky you got V fest tickets! I definitely think a book for train journeys is a must, I've heard lots about The Rosie Project but have never picked it up, I'll look out for it next time I'm in waterstones :)

Takes me hours to get home from uni too (I'm also from the Midlands!) - I hate long train journeys! x

Eeek! I absolutely want to watch Theory of Everything! I heard Eddie Redmayne was fantastic though The Railway Man with Mr. Darcy sounds good too...

Despite the fact that I currently live in a different country, I think my journey home (to Essex, from Germany) might actually be easier than yours! Haha.
Congratulations on your V Fest tickets!! :)

Sam said...

How crazy is that? haha! And thanks lovely x

I've seen so many adverts for The Rosie Effect, definitely need to read it!

If you liked The Railway man, you should definitely give Kingsman: The Secret Service a go! It's the best film I've watched this year. I highly recommend it.

Sorry to hear about the job interview, but I am sure that it just means something better and more aligned with what you do is bound to come along! I personally actually wish I could go home more often, but home (my parent's house, that is) is an 8 hour plane ride away, so I only get to go 1-2 times a year. Exciting that you have a new room though! And local pub nights are the best! I haven't heard of "The Rosie Project," but I am going to look into it! I am taking a trip soon, so maybe I will download it for my kindle. I don't know anything about V Festival but have fun! an this film looks interesting - adding it to my list of things to watch!

It really is a great film! xx

Sam said...

It is an interesting film! You should watch it :) xx

Sam said...

Aw firstly, thanks for your lovely comment! 8 hours is an awful long way so i can see why you don't go more often. You should google V festival for sure, it's a big UK musical festival! And I hope you enjoy it if you read it :) xx

I'm looking for a new book so I'll have to check it out- and the movie looks good too!

I've heard such good things about The Railway Man, thanks for the reminder to watch it. I have to admit.. I have a bit of a 'crush' on Colin Firth haha! I've followed you on Twitter by the way and hope we can connect over there :)
