WOW, what a month February was!! It feels as though I’ve hardly had time to process the whirlwind of events that have happened recently, so I’m just going to jump right into this wrap up and see what happens.
In February I read a total of ZERO books.
That’s right: I read nothing in February.
Well, that’s not technically true. I read SO MANY articles and short stories and poems (sonnet overload for my Renaissance Poetry class), but no novels to speak of for the entirety of February. This is the first month in ages that this has happened (years, even?) but I’ve come to accept the fact that it simply can’t be helped. I’m been incredibly busy this semester and free reading time just doesn’t fit into my chaotic schedule. But my spring break starts in two weeks, and you can bet that I’ll be sitting down with a good book (or two or three) when I finally have some free time on my hands!
My second semester of sophomore year started off with an event I’ve been looking forward to for months: the annual tap show! I’m part of my college’s tap dancing group, and each February we have our annual show. Our opening night had the biggest audience of Tap Out Loud history, and it was amazing to feel the support and appreciation of all of my peers. It was also surreal to see the dance I choreographed to “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham! actually performed on stage. Definitely a night to remember!
Another great weekend was when some of my friends and I went to the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, MA. I love going to museums but I don’t get to do it nearly as often as I would like. It was so nice to get off campus for a bit and spend a relaxing day admiring some beautiful art. My favorite part of the museum is definitely the Monet room. ❤
The fun continued when I went to see the movie version of the musical Newsies. HOLY COW, THIS MUSICAL IS AMAZING. The choreography is so impressive, especially since I had no idea that this was such a physical, energetic, dance-heavy musical. Jeremy Jordan was fantastic and I’ve basically had the soundtrack playing on repeat since that day. If you’ve never listened to Newsies, I highly recommend checking it out!
Then came the magical day when my friends and I went to NerdCon 2017 in Boston. I recently wrote an entire Top Ten Tuesday post about the amazing time I had there, which you can check out by clicking here. I met so many talented, kind, inspiring people who I’ve looked up to for years, as well as some that I’m looking forward to looking up to in the future. It was absolutely surreal to be surrounded by thousands of Nerdfighters (and JOHN AND HANK!!) and I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend such a wonderful event.
