Hello friends, bookies, and fellow bloggers! This post-- this very one that you are reading right now-- is the 300th post on I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good. As I hope you know, I am so insanely appreciative for all you have done for me and my humble blog for the past three and a half years. I've made some great friends through blogging, and I love reading about other people's opinions, lives, and cultures too. Your encouragement has truly kept me going because there were some times that I definitely felt like giving up on this whole blogging thing. Thank you so much guys!

Hello! It's exam week, so this is, of course, scheduled. You can basically just assume that I am very stressed out right now, and at the time when this is posted, I'll be just starting my Spanish exam.
Anyway, it's Tubesday, and I can't deprive you of a video for this special day, so I chose this lovely rendition of "Stars" from Les Mis by a so-called boyband on BGT. Enjoy!
