JANUARY RECAP

12:14 PM

The last half of this month has kind of been a whirlwind...moving back to school, organizing everything again, getting into the routine of five classes (two of which are 3 hours each). It's probably life making up for the first half of the month in which I was shamefully lazy and did nothing.






Instructions For Flight The Fill-In Boyfriend On the Fence


Instructions for Flight by Kate I. Foley 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (review here, but 👌)
The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 (💗 I love it SO much)
On the Fence by Kasie West 🌟🌟🌟🌟 (TBH this was leaning more towards 3 but relatable guy problems yo)


It wasn't a big reading month. I guess I've been going through a slump and nothing really interests me (except YA contemporaries *gasp*). Or else I don't have the energy/attention span to sit down and actually read a book.

One of the delights of being a lot more anxious and stressed out at school. Sometimes, okay most of the time, I'd rather watch YouTube or the latest TV series.



Oh NaNa by K.A.R.D
Stay With Me by Chanyeol x Punch (Goblin OST)



Born to Lose by No Sleep ft. Gia Koka

Not Going Home by DVBBS & CMCs ft. Gia Koka

I find a lot of my favorite songs when I'm playing one of those 2 hour chill remixes or summer playlist remixes on YouTube. Which is where the bottom two songs came from.

K.A.R.D is a relatively new K-pop group that hasn't really done promotions and it's CO-ED or whatever word you use to mean guys AND girls. Two of each to be exact! I think it's really cool.

I have been slowly but steadily watching Goblin (no spoilers, guys, don't be Hoshi) and I've fallen in love with this soundtrack. It just makes me so calm and relaxed, which I really need, and especially when it's played with the drama montage. The. feels.

I really liked Miss Peregrine's! Don't hate me, but I didn't read the book first. I might in the future, but my point is--the movie was really exotic, funky, circus feeling and I loved it.

The Swap. Disney. Yes, it is cringe-worthy. Yes, it has a million second-hand embarrassment moments. But in the end, the message was there and it was very cute. (I will say you definitely have to be in the mood though.)

Kubo and the Two Strings. *cries big ugly tears* It has a children's story feel, but the story runs deeper too and I was never bored by it or though "ugh this is so kiddy." The animation is also gorgeous. 

Goblin. The k-drama that everyone's talking about. I think. I don't keep up with trends too well. The premise is very interesting... Grim Reapers, Goblins, deities, etc. However, the big age-gap between the two mc's is slightly disturbing imo. (not a spoiler. it's literally in the drama trailer)

Hwarang is a historical drama and much slower paced than Goblin, and many other shows. It took like 4 episodes for the plot to actually get moving. BUT the problem is it's a very interesting premise (rich nobles' sons chosen to be personal guards for the king) and I'm actually in love with all of the characters. Not like "OMG I WANT TO MARRY YOU" but "OMG I WANT TO MARRY A COUPLE OF YOU THE REST ARE MY SMOL SONS."




  • All last semester, I didn't really have the motivation to organize my apartment bedroom. This semester I finally replaced my little bookcase that broke with a new snazzy one and organized.
  • INTERNSHIP. I got one. As you all may or may not know, I'm majoring in graphic design and right before school started I got an design internship in my hometown that is very small I might add. !!!! That means I get to stay with the fam for a whole nother summer before I graduate ^^
  • I'm in the second semester of my junior (3rd) year of college so classes are kind of winding down and I'm taking the "big" ones. This semester it's independent studies. And let me tell you. It is testing me. 
  • Besides that, there's not a whole lot happening. ✌️️


What have you guys been up to? Is school killing you already (I wouldn't know. I always rock school tbh... sarcasm. That was sarcasm.)? Rec me some songs or 2017 books!

  1. Eyyyyy, congrats on your internship! :) That's super exciting! Especially one in your hometown.

    I was not a fan of the Miss Peregrine's book, but I haven't seen the movie. The book was slooowwww, and not at all creepy like the cover and description try to advertise. It wasn't awful, just not my thing. Maybe the movie was better for once?

    1. Thank you!! Ohmigosh, I was sweating bullets I was so nervous about the interview. I'm so happy ^^

      Yeah, my sister told me that she DNF'd Miss Peregrine's so that's kind of two strikes against? Or semi-strikes lol. Hm, interesting. I really don't like it when the cover/blurb say one thing and you open the book to find that it's COMPLETELY different.

      I mean, I really enjoyed the movie. But I'll get back to you for sure if I read the book :)
