Monthly Recap: February ’16

Posted March 1, 2016 by Amber in Monthly Recap / 1 Comment

Hi everyone! I haven’t posted much this month, I’ve been kind of distracted really. Though life this much is pretty much the same, trying to find a job, being excited about going to BEA in a few months, busy with Bible Study and such. 🙂 I mentioned yesterday I would be doing my Looking Forward To feature in this post, but I’m actually going to do that tomorrow instead.

I participated in the Blogger Love-A-Thon event a little bit.

~New Music~

Here’s my very, very short Spotify playlist for the month. I listened to an outtake from Troye Sivan that ended up leaking called Blue Moon. It’s good stuff. Speaking of leaks, The Veronicas and Allie X had a lot of music leak this past month and I love it.

~Album I Wish Had Gotten More Love~

I meant to listen to these three albums but did not.

~What I’ve Been Watching~

I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy a bit, but I’m going a lot slower than I have been. I’m on the sixth season now! I don’t know why exactly because I’ve been just waiting to finally reach this season and now I’m at a standstill with it. I’ll blame it on season five events.

I’ve also been watching Fuller House, I have just one more episode to watch. I’ve liked it a ton.

How To Get Away With Murder came back on TV, but I haven’t watched any of the new episodes yet.

How has your month been? What have you been reading? Are you watching anything on TV lately? Did anything big happen in your life? Did I miss any book to movie/tv show adaptations news?

  1. I’m current finishing up Kill The Boy Band! I think it was definitely amazingly hilarious and darkly humorous – still not sure of the plot…. your stats are pretty amazing compared to mine! My blog will be at your level one day! 😉
