So…whoops. No News Worthy last week. In my defense, I was home with my family and enjoying some time with them (and, to be honest, I was in very much of the same mood as the week before, where I just didn’t feel like actively seeking news or just didn’t find anything that caught my fancy).
Thumbs up to me for publishing two non-News Worthy posts this week! It’s the simple things that count, guys.
While living in London last semester, I was most intrigued by the school system and seeing uniformed kids on the tube. Apart from (sort of) understanding terms such as GCSEs and A-levels, English schooling is an unknown but interesting topic for me. I really liked this New York Times article about recent movements to diversify some of Britain’s most exclusive schools.
I’m really enjoying writing these posts every week. It’s reassuring to always have something to post even if I’ve had a busy or not so creative week!
As tired as Garry Marshall’s tendency to force as much plot into these “holiday” movies as possible has gotten, I’m still a sucker for his fluffy, harmless movies. Although it seems that he’s reaching a little far with Mother’s Day and the story looks totally unoriginal, the trailer is still cute. Will I see it in theaters? Definitely not. Get it through Redbox or watch it once it streams on Netflix? Sure.
Three cheers for being able to return for a second week of this feature! I’ve got good vibes for this, guys.
I’m trying out a new feature where, every Friday, I accumulate a list of recent articles, interviews, news, and videos I found over the course of the week and enjoyed. Some of these news bites will be serious, while others are just very fun to squeal over. I certainly stumble across enough material during my procrastinating to keep this up for quite some time!
