Monthly Musings: February

I don’t know about y’all, but I had a very busy and stressful February. It was like a 28 day rollercoaster! I applied for approximately 1 billion internships, continued planning the fashion show my school puts on every year, and studied for midterms. To say that I’m a bit burnt out would be an understatement.

Despite all that, February definitely had its moments! I had my 21st birthday on February 10th, I started a YouTube channel, and got a brand new DSLR! My photos are immensely better, I’m able to film good quality videos for my channel, and I can have a drink if I want to. Seems like a pretty good deal to me!

Other happenings this month included a (very late) Christmas party for work, discovering the best wing sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings (spicy garlic ftw), and fundraising for The Fashion Show 2017. Heck yeah.


I read 1.5 books this month! I even signed up for a membership card at my local bookstore so I could get some sweet discounts. I’m officially a literature-nut again and I’m so happy for that! Ironically, both the books take place in England. I swear it’s just a coincidence and I’m not that obsessed with the UK, haha!

What I read:

The Girl Before by JP Delaney – This one has a few surprise twists in it that make you go “Oh, snap!” It follows the stories of two ladies living in the same house at different times. They didn’t know each other, but there are some ~eerie~ similarities between them. Definitely recommend this book!

Currently reading:

The Widow by Fiona Barton – From what I can tell, this story mainly follows the story of a wife of a convicted felon. I’m not that far into it, but it’s pretty good so far!


I’m listening to the same playlist I was last month, but with a few more additions!

Love by Lana Del Rey – omg I am OBSESSED with this song! I am a huge LDR fan and this is her first single in basically 2 years so you can imagine how excited I was to hear it!

That’s My Girl by Fifth Harmony – Okay so this one is a bit confusing to me since I’m not typically a huge girl band fan, but it’s basically become my “Go get ’em!” song. Every girl needs one of those, am I right?

Chained To The Rhythm by Katy Perry – I highly suggest you watch the music video for this one! It unveils a deeper meaning to the song!


I haven’t had a whole lot of time to watch much of anything right now. I’m still trying to find time to watch Orphan Black, but otherwise I’m just watching YouTube videos here and there. Perhaps someday I’ll have time to finish that series!
