Friends, February was a hard month. It probably doesn't seem that way since I've managed to post more this month than I have all of sophomore year so far, but, this month destroyed me.
3 Things About My Life This Month
|My Choir Squad! We're not ice skating but we are celebrating Choir Valentine's Day!|
1. I went Ice Skating with the Choir! I’ve gone ice skating approximately three times in my life, so needless to say, I was clutching the wall of the skating rink while the Wellesley College Choir skated circles around me. But we had such a good time and I really got the hang of it by the end. I’ve been really close with the choir since our tour in California so spending time with them outside of rehearsal has been a huge highlight of the month for me. :)
2. I went to a real adult party! A friend of mine who graduated early, last semester, is now living and working in Boston. She invited me and a few of our other friends over to her house on a Saturday night and I felt incredibly adult having to hang my coat in a real closet and walk through a city to get to an apartment. It was a really great night.
3. I’m finding this semester to be really tough. It’s been academically challenging, of course, but that I expected. What I didn’t expect was to feel as overwhelmed as I currently do. If I’m not in class I’m working one of my three jobs and if I’m not doing that, I’m attending e-board meetings or choir rehearsals. I rarely see my best friend during the week and the weekend doesn’t seem like enough time to relax, catch up with my friends, and somehow find the energy to go for a party or simply stay up and not crash into my bed. Anyway, this has been a tough month but…I’m hoping it gets easier from this month on.
Favorite Book I Read This Month
The Dark Days Club (Lady Helen, #1) by Alison Goodman. I adored this book! I can get lost in Goodman’s words of Regency Era any day, not to mention a combination of her originality and slow-burn romances always have me weeping on the floor. Anyhow, this was fantastic. If you haven’t already, you can read my review of it HERE.

Obsession of the Month
Jane the Virgin! I'm still on Season 1 of this show but it is so good! Not only does it do such a fabulous job paying homage to Latina culture but the strong women of color at the core of this show inspire me. Plus, it's based off of a Venezuelan telenovela and the fact that this is a murder mystery, love story, and so much more all in one just continues to blow my mind. This comes so highly recommended from me so definitely give it a try if you haven't watched it yet and if you have let me know in the comments below if you're #TeamMichael or #TeamRaphael! ;)
(It should also be noted that while I hate love triangles in YA I find that the love triangle in Jane the Virgin is done extremely tastefully. Everyone is #TeamJane and Jane is such a strong, fantastic character that you can't help but support her in everything she does. Also, it should be noted that Jane is with Michael when she is accidentally inseminated with Raphael's sperm and now has to contend with the fact that her boyfriend is unprepared to raise another man's child and that guy, Raphael, is handsome, wealthy, and is going to make a great dad. The love triangle truly has me torn and hasn't felt unnecessary at all so far in the show so I'm curious to hear what other fans think too!)
Something I'm Looking Forward to Next Month
Umm, Spring Break! Duh! I not only get to lie on my giant queen bed for an entire, glorious, seven days but I also get to eat homemade Indian food and make brownies and hug my mom!
How was your February? I want to hear all about it in the comments below!
