Did I even mention what the book is about? There were three people involved in creating the book, one of the three being the Kang Chol-Hwan - the person that the story belongs to; it is about his childhood in North Korea, North and South Korea's history briefly mentioned, Kang Chol-Hwan's families' history (Jeju Island, Japan, North Korea) and North Korea in general. Kang Chol-Hwan escaped from North Korea and through 'The Aquariums of Pyongyang' he is able to share the custom in North Korea, educate people about the sad condition in North Korea and ask for help for North Korea citizens. 'The Aquariums of Pyongyang' is also one of the first published accounts of the prison system in North Korea. I can't fathom my high interest but yes I recommend it

Dramatic title sorry but I'm just really happy. I got another A in Spanish and some praise from my other Spanish teacher. Times like this I really love Spanish. My teacher asked if I considered an exchange program or anything like that. Not really, because I don't know if I will definitly carry on with Spanish (depends on my grade) but it'd feel like such a waste if I give up now. Hope you're all having a nice week

Big update on the Geography & I page so make sure you look at that por favor...jebal.
Aaaand I've spent my whole morning actually doing something on the 'The countries you don’t hear much about' page so don't kill me. I thought I knew quite a bit on North Korea before but I found out so much so hopefully you read. I sacrificed doing homework for it but hopefully it's worth it. Take a look. The North Korea section is complete and I will soon start on the other sections. So enjoy...or cry.

One of my latest piece of homework to hand in for Spanish was a writing piece on travelling the world for two years and what it was like when I came back to my home. I thought this wasn't real - travelling is one of my dreams I feel I may never be able to do. So me being me, I thought of the most creative storyline of seeing the places I want to see the most or return to: Lake district, Norway, France, Italy, Spain, Turkey and South Korea. I told me dad that I must have gone off track and forgot what I was supposed to write about as I wrote double the word limit - he told me to delete some. Never! It's like me erasing my dreams.
So today I handed in my work to my teacher and I can honestly say I teared up a little when I saw that I got an A. This would be me in the 70% part of the battle
