The Aquariums of Pyongyang - Update

I'm not usually one for learning about history. In my secondary school years history was the one subject that was 'hmm..interesting' but I never wanted to keep on with. Listening to 'The Aquariums of Pyongyang' is really interesting history complex and shocking - so much adjectives to describe it and I'm only on chapter 4. The total duration of the audiobook is 7 hours 22 seconds...I have a feeling I might be listening to the remaining 5 hours and 50 minutes in the next 24 hours.

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

The Aquariums of Pyongyang

As I love a lot I always look at the e-mails I receive from them. A lot of deals, discounts and freebies. One e-mail gave me a free audio-book and I was previously debating over what 2 books out of 4 books on North Korea I should buy, so I got one for free to lessen my choice - The Aquariums of Pyongyang. I am listening to it currently - very interesting. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Spanish battle contined

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

Oh right and this is the distribution of views that I have over the world (all Northern the moment) it depends on how dark green the country appears

 (so most of my views come from the UK) but I am happy there are viewers in North America, Germany, Spain, Russia, France, South Korea and I just started this this month. I'm not speaking as if I have 1,000 of views, i have a few hundred but I'm happy (some) people are interested... thank you?

Page Update

Hello all!
 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.

Spanish assignment

With Spanish, I have an ongoing battle of 70% of the time me loving it and making plans for what to do with Spanish; the remaining 30% I can say I almost hate it and find it so hard. The work load is a bit and a lot of independent study but if I do my work on time I should find it alright. Most times when I 'almost hate it' is when I am rushing to do it the Sunday evening before my first two lessons on Monday morning - so yes, it's my own fault but seriously, honestly I lead the procras-nation (I procrastinate too much).

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

Geog trip

Hello all. Today I went on a geography trip with my small class of 4 to the Isle of Sheppey in East England. It was freezing with wind rain and hail but we got through it. We went to analyse crowded coasts, tourism and coastal defences and it was very interesting.

Shoutout to our cool teacher for getting us these mocha's.

Well I decided to share this with people even though there's so much more that needs doing and I've had positive feedback so far. So stay tuned until I properly update this. I shall try not to procrastinate but so far the Holidays page, Spanish page and Korean page is quite done. Have fun and remember kee-eep dancing (I joke. That was totally inappropriate and not needed).

Stop it!

I must say I have a lot of ideas for the blog. I'm trying to get them all out but it's taking long. If you are reading this pre to my release, stop reading :( the blog is messy right now. I want it to be orderly...even though that will not happen because I speak to informally. Soon!

Intro to the blog

Hello there netizen (internet citizen)! Well if you’ve stumbled across this, found the link I’ve posted or are just a friend of mine, my name is Kaycey and I’m from London. I study Psychology, English Literature, Geography and Spanish at AS level at Sixth Form. I’m very passionate about Geography; even though my GCSE grade didn’t show how much I love it, this blog is a bit about how I’m infatuated with this subject, and have been my whole life (even though I didn’t realise it).  So stay tuned and click all the links to find out more about this wonderful world outside your front door.
(That rhymed guys... come on as cheesy as it is, it was cool admit it!)
Also thank you Stephanie for suggesting this all.
