February Wrap Up

These past 28 days have bless my soul completely for one reason and one reason alone.
The Jonas brothers released new music last night.
None of you know this, but I stan those three brothers like a flower stans the sun. It’s ridiculous. If you follow my personal instagram– which you should follow both of my accounts, because I am seriously a time and a half in stories— (@sammers65), you would have known just how ecstatic and stupid excited I was for their new music to drop…and boy when they drop it….mah heart.  My crops were revived last night and my outlook has changed on the world. What a time to be alive.
Reading wise (probably the real reason you clicked on this post in the first place and not to hear my middle school heart gush) I read a lot of great books this month, which is shocking because of how the short the month is and my busier than usual schedule these pass couple of weeks, and the fact I was heading for a reading slump doozy back at the end of January.
February has been real good to me fam.

    Have you read Luna and the Lie yet?

      Mariana is literally my all time favorite romance writer to date! I love her so much! And yes I have! Rip and luna are goals! I think the only book of hers I haven’t read yet is Rhythm, Chord, and Malykhin. I plan to read it this month though!

    Nice. It looks you had a decent reading month. I also watched Deadpool 2 this past month and, of course, it was spectacular.

    1. Sam || Fictionally Sam

      March 1, 2019 at 11:13 am

      I LOVED Deadpool 2. It was a time and a half for sure lololol.

    Why would someone rewatch Thor 2? Don’t get me wrong, I love my boy Thor but that movie is easily one of the worst, if not the worst, on the MCU.

    1. Sam || Fictionally Sam

      March 1, 2019 at 11:29 am

      I agree it isn’t the greatest one in the MCU, but my mom wanted to binge the Thor movies and I came home when she was popping in numero 2, so that’s what we watched. lol.

    I’m glad you enjoyed The Mermaid’s Voice Returns in this One since it’s an upsetting 1 star for me!

    Ooooo look at chu getting all this reading done in the shortest month of the year xD NCIS hmmm I kinda prefer the LA team to the Washington team but hey I ship Densi with all my heart and one day I’m gonna watch the NCIS LA show in ORDER cause they suck at airing over here in the UK, we’re stuck with reruns AGAIN *sobs* I don’t think I’ve seen past Season 4 or 5 of LA. Anyhoo my music last month was a toss up between nightcore and erm rock I think actually haha.

    1. Sam || Fictionally Sam

      March 4, 2019 at 12:11 pm

      ooooo I love all the NCIS ones! If I had to put them in order it would be the original, New Orleans, and then LA. 10/10.

    I love how you also add episodes and movies you’ve watched. I never have energy to put the episodes down. My February has been stressful because of my internship but one of my ships became canon so I was in the moon for like a day and a half.

    1. Sam || Fictionally Sam

      March 4, 2019 at 12:12 pm

      oof to stress! Hopefully March will be much calmer for you! and YAY for canon!

      1. jamsu

        March 4, 2019 at 12:42 pm

        I hope so too. I think it will be as soon as I finish this internship so I can stop stressing about it. I’m so happy that they became canon.
