Monthly Rewind // February


My Month in Review

Hey, I was actually around this month! Not perfect, but I was here and actually posted some stuff – even a huge bunch of mini-reviews! Hopefully we’ll have more of the same next month, but no guarantee because I’m going to be really busy with some student teaching stuff this month – March might be another slow month and then things will get better again in April. Only time will tell. The point is, this month was better on the blog and I still got plenty of reading done, so I’m taking the win!

Music of the Month

Since February is so short and I wasn’t listening to as much music as I would have liked, I’m going to combine February and March next time. Here’s a song to tide you over, since I’m sure you’re so sad you don’t get to hear my musical suggestions this month.

Favorite Non-Book Things

1 // Organization Lately, in order to help with my student teaching stuff (and occasionally putting off said stuff), I’ve been doing my best to keep organized and clean up my room a bit. It’s making me feel all professional and organized and other great adjectives like that, so I think it’s a good idea – you know, when I actually do it.

2 // Naps Um, I might have a problem – but not, because I love them and student teaching keeps me a bit physically and definitely emotionally drained after each day. Teaching is not for the faint of heart – and it can be a little tough for poor little introverts like me – I’m getting sick of the sound of my name, and also kids telling on each other. I love it, even when it exhausts me and I sort of hate it – I assume this is what parenting or something will be like. Feel free to tell me that I’m 100% wrong, parents, but I have nothing to compare it to and I need to stop rambling, so we’re just going to end things here and now.

A Goal for March

Keep up the reading (and maybe the posting, but mostly the reading) during my busy month.
