What I Loved [February 2020]

In an attempt to get back into the blogging swing, I wanted to revisit my monthly recaps but in a much more casual way! Instead of focusing on stats and posts, I’m sharing some of my favorite things about this month, from books to merch to life and everything in between!

February was shorted but somehow “better” than January reading-wise! It depends on how you look at it. I read more books but had fewer pages, but all of Feb’s reads were brand-new versus some re-reads in January. I meant to re-read something each month but it kept feeling like I had just done a re-read so I managed not to get one in somehow! Here’s what I read in Feb:

MOVIES & SHOWS

I started a bullet journal this year in part because I wanted to make my own reading journal but also so I could keep track of TV shows! I realized how much I actually watch while I’m working and when Shane and I sit down to watch things at night so I started keeping track of the shows I’ve been binge watching!

Here’s what I watched in February:

  • Weeds (Netflix): Season 6 – Season 8 (finished series)
  • The Sinner (Netflix): Season 1, finished first season/first part
  • Twin Peaks (Netflix): Season 1, Episodes 1-4

I finally finished watching Weeds! I actually breezed through it pretty quickly but I had started watching it yeeeeeears ago and then never made it past season five, I think because I just didn’t have access to Showtime anymore? I decided to rewatch from the beginning back in January and finished this month! I tried watching Twin Peaks but it was a little too soap opera for me. I feel like it was just about to start going somewhere but I decided to stop… for now.
