I wish I could say that January was blur. Of course, there were some good days but like all good things those days seem to have rushed past me. And there were a lot of not so good days so I'm definitely glad to say goodbye to January. So here I am saying a big hello to February!
Currently I am...
READING Damsel Distressed. Don't let that cutesy cover fool you because Kelsey Macke pulls all the stops in this emotional debut. I have also been listening to some of the soundtracks for this novel and I've got to say Wedding Day Rain's Breathe Easy is my favorite! Many thanks to Hazel for introducing me to my new favorite fairy tale retelling.
WATCHING The 100. I might be a little obsessed with this show but man, the leading ladies are kicking ass! And I can hardly complaint about Bellamy Blake, can I? This show also wins because #Bellarke - The mother of all OTPs.
LISTENING to Emeli Sandé. Honestly, I have had very little time to go hunting for great music so recommendations are welcome!
ENJOYING working on a blog makeover process. It's all coming together albeit very very slowly.
HATING this waiting period. I have taken some steps for a change career-wise but I'm still waiting to hear if it's a yes or a no. The whole 'not-knowing' is killing me but I'm trying to be patient.
WASTING time thinking of the 'could-have-been's.
MARVELING at how a little break from routine can help me forget those 'could-have-been's.
REALIZING that I am the only one who's responsible for my own happiness.

GRATEFUL for books.
