Monthly Recap : February

Monday, February 29, 2016

February, to say the least, is a month full of tests and quizzes and assignments. There are no weeks without one of those (in fact, I have a 1 week full of those on the last week of February). I think March will be the same, since I'll have my mid-term tests in March. February is also a month of parties and family-gatherings, apparently. I celebrated Chinese New Year by visiting many of my relatives (and get a lot of red envelopes <3). Also, some of my friends have their birthdays parties in this month. At least their parties are great (eventhough it's a little tiring).

On blogging life, you may notice that I participated in Love-A-Thon event! It's a really great event and I met many new friends through it. Plan to participate again next year :)

  1. Ooo, I'd have to sympathize you in regards to all the tests and assignments, and Chinese New Year to boot with all the food and celebrations.

    Hope March will be better for you, Tiffany, and thanks for stopping by Bookwyrming Thoughts! :)

    By the way, I LOVE your blog layout. :D

  2. You have such a nice organized approach to this! I ramble on quite a bit. I've been interested in reading The GIrl From Everywhere and Since You've Been Gone, so I'm happy to see you rated both highly.

  3. tests and assignments i dont even want to think of those. uni just started here, ive taken a gap year so i'm trying to get back into the schoolingness. i really dont want to think about assignments and tests thats scary not to mention exams ahhh. good luck for all your tests and whatnot!!

  4. I'm so sorry about all the tests and assignments! I had a week in February that was like that, too, but I think it's over for me (for now). I don't even want to imagine an entire month of that!

    I'd never heard of No Love Allowed, but I just looked it up and it looks like something I'd really like. Thanks for helping me find it!

  5. We read the same amount of books in February-yaay us :) Hopefully March is test free for you!

  6. I'm studying for exams so I totally understand! <3 I really want to read The Girl from Everywhere, No Love Allowed and Since You've Been Gone - THEY LOOK SO GOOD.

  7. Good luck with all of your tests! Year 12 is not fun, but there'll be a lot of awesome things on the other side when you finish! Yayy for the Love-A-Thon - I enjoyed that a lot as well :) The Girl from Everywhere has been everywhere lately, haha, I'm really keen to read that soon. All the best for March!

  8. Sounds like you've got a busy couple of months right now! Hope you get some breathing room after your exams in March!

  9. Sounds like you had a great month!!! Despite all the tests, that is. ;) I wish I had taken part in the Love-A-Thon event. Next year for sure! I hope you're enjoying your weekend!! :)

  10. Looks like you got a lot accomplished despite your hectic test schedule. Great ob, seriously! I missed the Love-A-Thon this year :(. Glad to see you had fun with it!
