Failing a Class in College


Hello, everyone!

Yes, I just failed my very first class ever… And, also, I have to give my first supplementary exam ever.

I’ve never, in my whole life, failed a class nor given a supplementary exam, until now, during my third semester in college. I'm not proud about this, not at all, but I just need to let it all out.

DESCRIPTION
In a stunning literary debut, two boys on opposite ends of the world begin an unlikely friendship that will change their lives forever.Ollie and Moritz are best friends, but they can never meet.

But Moritz would die without his pacemaker. Both hermits from society, the boys develop a fierce bond through letters that become a lifeline during dark times—as Ollie loses his only friend, Liz, to the normalcy of high school and Moritz deals with a bully set on destroying him.A story of impossible friendship and hope under strange circumstances, this debut is powerful, dark and humorous in equal measure. These extraordinary voices bring readers into the hearts and minds of two special boys who, like many teens, are just waiting for their moment to shine.

Together, we are Scorpion.

Hello, everyone!

Today, I have a makeup review for you but, sadly, it is going to be a negative one.

When I first received this lip tar, I found it interesting as it is vegan and 100% cruelty free but, once I tried it I felt very disappointed.
