I know everyone else is saying that February flew by, but to me it was another long month. I had the major disappointment of not getting a job I really wanted, some more health concerns with my family, and a friend of mine lost their aunt in a freak accident which was just heartbreaking. I didn’t know her aunt, but I know a lot of the family and my heart hurts for them.
That’s not to say that February was a bad month overall, just that there were things that made it seem longer. I was, however, able to read thirteen books in those twenty-eight days, which surprised me. Granted, four of them were manga and I read those very fast, but still. Books are books.

The Pacifier | Disney+
For some reason, I went to Disney+ rather than Netflix looking for something to have on as background noise while reading, and I ended up picking The Pacifier to play. However, instead of just keeping it as background noise, I was entranced in this movie I hadn’t seen since high school, and I forgot how good of a movie it actually is. I also forgot Lauren Graham is in it, though I’m just so used to her as Lorelai in Gilmore Girls that it’s weird to see her acting as any other character.
It was nice to actually watch a family-fun movie for once. It’s not something I do often since my nose is usually stuck in a book, so I really appreciated the visual storytelling of a movie.
That’s all for my February Wrap Up! Here’s to a good March for everyone! I’m most excited for 90s Con on the 19th and the official arrival of spring!

February was quite a long, tough month for me too, and for some of the same reasons – family health and stress, and job woes. It felt like an extension of January, so I’m really hoping things pick up in March. Still, I managed to keep reading which was a great thing, because I often stop reading and turn to TV shows when stress gets too much to deal with.

Yes, the job woes were big in February for me as well. I hope it gets better for you as well in March! 💜
