Storytime: A teacher was wrong & yelled at me

It's been a while since I wrote a 'Storytime' post, but let's just start this one. Sometime in my elementary school we had a substitute professor who was teaching geography and he had some big shoes to fill in as the professor that was absent was pretty loved. He was Michael, young and new in this business. So he came all friendly, a bit confused and all over the place, but very nice. He also told us we could call him only by his first name which was a huge difference to all other teachers and professors. And we were about 12 years old at the time. It was kinda weird so we kept calling him 'professor' whenever we needed him. Although I kinda missed the old one, I really liked Michael. And I think he liked me. Not only me, but I always did my homework, I did good in his class so he liked that.
One time we were given pair assignments and my friend's any mine was to write a paper on Cyprus and present it to the class. This was going on for few weeks before we had to do it. We've already listened to about half the class and we saw how everybody was doing it. We all had posters and papers in front of us to read all the stats and information we're supposed to present. Nobody was good at presenting in 6th grade.
So our turn came and my friend didn't show up to school that day (I forgot the reason why) so I asked my other friend if she could just read those parts off a paper. She said she could so we came up front and started. As soon as I started reading, Michael stopped me and started yelling. He said we couldn't read anything. We should have learned it. I first had to defend my friend and explain to him why she knew nothing about that and why was she even there. Once that was cleared, I still had to defend myself. The whole class was confused because it was not how Michael usually reacted and, also, everybody else was also reading everything off papers. After few minutes that felt like ages, Michael told me to sit down and I never finished my presentation.
I acted all strong and just pissed off, but when I got home I started crying my eyes out. He yelled at me in front of everybody for something that wasn't my 'fault'. I told my parents what has happened, they went to school the other day and talked to my class professor and Michael. The next geography class, Michael invited me to stay a bit after class. Of course, my whole class stayed because we were noisy little creatures. He invited me closer to his desk and apologized saying "he shouldn't have reacted that way". I just said "OK, thank you".
I still have no idea what happened that day, but me and Michael were pretty good afterwards and I also called him by his first name few times in later grades. He then left our school after about 2 years. I've seen him few more times afterwards, just passing by.
What's your worst teacher/professor experience?

Thoughts I had while watching Fifty Shades Freed

I don't know why I wanted to watch the third part when you all know how I feel about the first two. If you don't know, you can find out in my post Movie review: Fifty shades of grey + Fifty shades darker. However, the last part ended with a proposal, and I'm a hopeless romantic, so I had to see how this will go. Instead of writing a full review, I'll write down my thoughts I had while watching the movie. There will be a short review and my impressions at the end.
Note: Of course, there are spoilers here.
  1. First scenes are a montage of how happy they are and it's too long and it annoyed me. Or maybe the song annoyed me.
  2. Christian is jealous as usual.
  3. He's still into this SM stuff while she's not so sure she likes it.
  4. Anna is super polite to the staff and wants to be a "normal" person.
  5. Sawyer the personal bodyguard is cute and he's probably my favorite character here.
  6. Christian is possessive to the extremes.
  7. Nice car, Christian!
  8. No one could stay this calm during reckless driving like this and it's definitely not sexy. Ending a dangerous car chase with sex is normal, of course.
  9. Was Sawyer still on the speaker during their car sex?
  10. Kissing close-up was too close.
  11. The way she speaks to Christian is too annoying. Like she's either talking to a child or she's scared.
  12. I get it it's their thing, but him punishing her sexually for anything is getting old.
  13. Hanna and Sawyer - yes, please! But nothing happens here because this is only a 2-people movie.
  14. Here's finally the song! Almost 50 mins into the movie and I can hear Liam and Rita - For You.
  15. First really cute thing Christian did was bringing her friends on a vacation with her.
  16. Christian sings and plays piano? OK, now I like him just a tiny bit more.
  17. Of course there's a fight in a club cause someone hits on Anastasia while Christian is there.
  18. He is pissed off that she is pregnant cause she missed her shots, but hey, there are condoms guy!
  19. God, I wouldn't want to stay with him after he said he doesn't want the kid cause she'll choose the kid over him. Of course she will. WTF?
  20. "We leave for work in 20 mins." and yet you just went to wash your hair? I don't think so.
  21. Her giving him a reality check about the baby is really needed here. You go girl!
  22. Of course he's tracking her phone. And it comes in really handy when she gets kidnapped...
  23. Telling the paramedics to be careful with the victim is not really necessary, especially when they're already rolling her bed in a hospital hallway.
  24. So she needs to almost die for him to realize he wants this baby. And of course he cries for the first time in his life now because we need to see he's a changed man.
  25. Oh there's the song, Ellie - Love Me Like You Do, while we're watching a cute montage of their story which, of course, ends with a weird sex SM scene. You just had to ruin this for me, right?
This is Sawyer.
I think 25 is an OK number for this. I actually wonder how you reacted to some of these... Anyway, I'm supposed to give my short impressions of this.

My impressions: Considering the first two, this is a masterpiece. No, but really now...I actually kinda liked this movie. Maybe because I'm, as I said before, a hopeless romantic and I love seeing these character changes, but it's not as bad as the first two. If Christian wasn't so possessive and creepy, and if Anastasia wasn't so scared and weird all the time, this would be an usual rom-com. If you skip the sex scenes, it can still be one, just a bit annoying one. I like the songs I linked, so that's a plus. You can see their love here, but it's so messed up.

What are your thoughts? Any specific thoughts on specific scenes?

See you next Sunday ♥

High school vs. uni/college

Hey. I just saw a picture on Sarcasm Facebook page and it gave me an idea to write this post.
This is it.
Now that I experienced both sides, I can make some comparisons. I have no idea how this is going to turn out... Going into college was just like another school I had to go to, but my feelings, habits and expectations changed a lot since I started it. Also, I need to emphasize that I don't have your "typical college" experience. I need to be there for every single class, we have mid-terms 2 per semester and, of course, finals and oral exams afterwards. We also had classes usually from 8 a.m. till at least 4 p.m., sometimes full 12 hours until 8 p.m. Yeah, fun times.
Note: If you need me to clarify anything or give you more more information, let me know in the comments.
  • friends
When you're in high school you think these people are the best you'll ever meet. You are together all day every day, you just start going out, clubbing and everything's great. However, college comes and people go their separate ways. You'll find your group again, large or small, and these are the people you're most likely going to stay friends with forever. The difference here is that in college you're older, you know what you want, what career you want and that connects you more with other people. I still have my best friends from high school so it's not like you need to break all connections, I'm just saying you'll probably click with college people more.
  • studying
This basically depends on how you usually study. I like to study during night; staying up till 5 a.m. is usually not a problem if I'm studying. I function like that, some people don't. Also, will you study continuously or all in one night is also on you. The main difference is that in high school you get few chances to improve yourself, to fix your grades. In college you don't - you either pass or fail and "see you in a few months".
  • partying
I don't know how it goes now, but I started going clubbing when I was a junior (so 3rd grade of high school) or being around 16 years old. It wasn't real clubbing as we went out around 7 p.m. and came back between midnight and 1 a.m. I thought I was going to have a full college party experience, but with the college I'm going to, that's not the case. I do feel like I'm missing out, but that's also on me too. My point here, you'll be able to party if you're very good at organizing your time.
  • responsibilities
In high school you're, what, 14 to 18 years old. There's not much you can do underage and there's not much you actually need to do. You're also most probably living with your parents so they'll take care of you. In college, you're probably living somewhere on your own, having to take care of your apartment/dorm room, having to buy yourself food, pay for the bills, taking care of paperwork... I was lucky enough to be able to live with my parents through all of this, but responsibilities are still higher.
  • sleep
Yeah, it was time I addressed this photo. This photo is 100% true. For me it was more like 10 hours of lecture, but you get it. I think this is the mix of being older, having so much to do, having less and less sleep and a 1000 more factors. Also, for me, having 6 hours straight of one subject is just painful. I think college is much more mentally draining than high school.

How was/is your high school/uni experience?

See you next Sunday ♥

I'm broke.

More like broke AF, but I hate when people say it like that, so yeah. I'm broke. Just to set up this post, here's a small intro and all info I think you should have before reading this.
I'm a full time student with classes every day (or 4 out of 5), mostly during the entire day. I'm also 23, living with my parents. And before you roll your eyes, that's actually the most normal thing here. It's the way we live. I've had some summer jobs, but I didn't earn enough to last me the entire year. I also like to shop. I know I talk about shopping a lot, especially to my friends here, but I rarely actually go and buy something. I set my shopping goals and I'm usually pretty good at following them. My only income during the year are my grandparents (thank you!) and, of course, my parents.
When I was in elementary school, and even in high school, I was usually the one with most money because I would keep all the money I would get and basically save it only for movies and coffees I would go to. Also, I should probably tell you that the prices of everything went up enormously since I was that age (so about 5 to 9 years).
Fast-forward 5 to 9 years and here I am. More broke than I ever was. Well, you can't be "more broke", so it's safe to say I'm broke. I obviously have much more expenses now, paying for some college stuff, clothes, make-up and all that that comes with puberty, growing up and basically trying to go with the world. I also have kinda wrong image of myself so I try to make up for it with new clothes and trends. However, lately, like in the past year or so, I've learned to live with myself, be happy and I've noticed that I spend way (!) less money cause I don't need all these stuff Internet tells me I absolutely need. However, that didn't help me at all. I have no idea how I survived some past years, but I spend less than ever and I have less money than I ever had. I'm lucky enough that my parents never turn me down if I ask for money, mostly because I'm a sane person and I only ask for "important" stuff and not for thousands for some new make-up product. But I've also noticed that they've been struggling with money more than ever now and it's obviously reflecting on me too.
Now, not only that I'm not able to afford some new stuff for myself, I'm struggling with buying presents for my friends, keeping up with them when they wanna go out and so on... I don't know if I explained this they way it is in my head, but I'm actually struggling with this a lot. A lot more than I let anyone know.
I'm maybe even more stressed out because of the fact that I was always "the richest" out of my friends and the fact that I always had some more money at home. I was even able to lend my friend a sh*t ton of money cause I had it. I couldn't have done it now. I don't know where I was going with this, but I just needed to tell this to someone.

How are your finances? Earning money or getting it?

See you next Sunday ♥

100 Truths Blogger Tag

There's a lot of tags going around. I've done my fair share of those on both of my blogs. Since I already did a tag post very very recently on my other blog, I've decided to have this one here. And it seems more appropriate since there are more personal and life related questions here.
As soon as I saw this, I had few questions in my head. Are there seriously 100 questions here? Am I supposed to like add some questions? What's going on? I've never heard of this tag before. But I was also really really happy to be tagged, cause I freaking love these. And my girl Hailey knows that.
