If I were to sum up February in five words, it would be “blink and you’ll miss it”.
Seriously. Where did it go?
A few things happened this month. Firstly, I celebrated my birthday, turning 20. Four days later, Valentine’s Day took place, and whether you like celebrating the day or not, I see it as a great excuse to eat chocolate, regardless of your relationship status.
This month also involved a lot of last minute organisation and prep for the next semester of uni, starting in March which I’m excited for and dreading simultaneously. Does anyone else feel that way before heading back to university/school? I’m eager to learn and study but I also tend to get really overwhelmed when I think of all the assessments and deadlines that come along with it all.
A Star is Born. This month I finally joined the party (a little late, I know) and watched the film everyone couldn’t stop talking about.
My verdict? Lady Gaga – amazing. Bradley Cooper – amazing. Soundtrack – amazing. The film overall – slightly mediocre. I thought it was a good movie, just incredibly overhyped to the point where I found it a little underwhelming.
Or should I say – drank a lot of tea. I’m definitely the kind of person who favours tea over coffee. I never got the hype with coffee and despite trying my best to like it, the taste just doesn’t do it for me. This month I’ve found myself drinking so much more tea than usual. I’m exactly sure why, but I’m not complaining!
A number of books this month. The first one I finished reading was ‘On Chesil Beach’ by Ian McEwan. I bought this book on a whim and finished it a couple of days later. Following that, I read ‘A Dog’s Way Home’ by W. Bruce Cameron. And towards the end of the month, I continued reading The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty after giving it a little break. I started reading this book in January, but I decided about 100 pages in that I wasn’t really feeling it, so I moved on to the two aforementioned books.
That was February.
