Terry would never have thought that his life could turn out this way. He’s always been a completely ordinary guy. He has light brown hair with some even grayish tinge, almost gray eyes and a fairly thin build. He always wears clothes of various shades of gray and most often it is some completely ordinary jeans, hoodies, sweaters. In general, the guy does not like to stand out. Moreover, he is a rather quiet, unsociable guy. He’s known his best friend all his life, and he doesn’t have any more friends. But one day changed everything. That day, Terry’s teacher…
I haven’t posted anything about my pleasure reading for a while, wich is definitely bad, I have to make a reminder for that.
However, it doesn’t mean I have stopped reading the book (which is An American Tragedy btw). And today I want to share some thoughts.
First of all, yes, I still do like this book a lot. Probably even more than before. I like the structure, because the author knows how to interest the reader. The book is divided into several parts (books) and when the first one ended, the second one began with a another…
It’s a new post about my pleasure reading progress and I am seeing for myself once again that the more you know about the history of the country, the better you understand the literature of this country.
For example, I can’t but mention some American values I’ve noticed in the book An American Tragedy, since we’ve talked about it recently in class. One of them is independence. Clyde, the son of the street preachers, who are poor, wants to get independent, especially in the financial aspect, from his parents. …
Currently I am reading a book by Theodore Dreiser called “An American Tragedy”.
When we were choosing our books for pleasure reading, I realized, that I really wanted to read some American classic books and after doing some research I finally picked out this one. I cannot really explain why, but when I read the description, there immediately was some respond from the inside, so I decided to read it.
So, I’ve been reading it for about a month and I don’t regret choosing this book. Almost from the beginning it made me think about some problems. For…
- Hey! Have you listened to the song I sent you yesterday? Isn’t it brilliant?
- Yeah, but I didn’t really like this song…
- But why?? I spent so much time looking for it to send it to you, I even didn’t have time to do my homework, so I got a low grade today. Moreover, I didn’t have enough sleep because of this!
- Well, frankly I’m not a huge fan of rock music.
- What do you mean?? Rock music is fantastic, there are so many subgenres. Moreover, there is a great number of movies made on…
Try Something New For 30 Days
A few years ago I felt like I was stuck in a rut, so I decided to follow in the footsteps of the great American philosopher Morgan Spurlock and try something new for 30 days. The idea is actually pretty simple. Think about something you’ve always wanted to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It turns out, 30 days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit or subtract a habit, like watching the news from your life. There’s a…
Hello, guys! The new study year has started, which means we all need to find a lot of information for our studies and the Internet is probably the easiest way to do that, but it can get REALLY confusing, since the World Web is incredibly huge.
That’s why today I want to tell you about some resources that might be helpful at some point, or at least interesting.
This is a site where you can find a lot of videos from real English speakers. Moreover, there are different quizzes to check your knowledge and learn something new…
Dinner with famous people.
Hello, everyone! Today I’m going to imagine that I could invite six artists for dinner. So, who would it be?
I watched a video about top 10 Oscar-winning songs and I want to share my favorite songs from movies with you. This are not specifically Oscar-winning songs, just the ones that I absolutely adore.
This song became a theme song of the third “Rocky” movie and very quickly won the acclaim of rock music fans all over the world. Even people who haven’t watched “Rocky”, probably heard the song at least once.
Moreover, for many people, including me, the song is associated with a TV-serial Supernatural, because it sounded in one of…
Today I want to talk about music. I’ve watched a video “Top 10 Most Important Moments in Music History” and I’m going to share my thoughts with you.
Well, first of all, I should say that of course I agree with the top that the author has compiled, because these are the songs that almost everyone in the world knows about and they are obviously very important for the music history.
I’ve tried to think about an alternative variant of this rating and I want to share it with you. However, since, as I’ve said, I really agree…
