February Wrap Up


Hello! February may be the shortest month of the year but it somehow also felt like the longest to me! So much happened this month, with me going to Goa with my friends and having so many assignments to do and midterms right around the corner!

But, also, I don’t have much to share with you all? I didn’t read or post much ad well, my stories with my friends are better left not published into the internet so here’s a short but fun wrap up!

January Wrap Up
As usual, I summed up what happened last month, highlighting all the important things in my life!

How My Reading Habits Have Changed
I reflect on how being a book blogger for 2 and a half years now has changed a lot of things for me, especially my reading and I discuss how it has effected me!

A Guide to Audiobooks
In relation to the above books where I talk about how audiobooks have been a game changer, I made a simple and easy guide for you all to get started or get more invested into audiobooks through! Look out for a list of audiobook recommendations coming your way soon!

So, there was quite a dearth of posts this month but I loved writing each and one of them and spent time on them instead of rushing to push out new blog pieces twice a week, or at least once and I really loved that! I’m finally finding my blogging voice so I may be slow in writing posts for a bit, or maybe forever, because quality > quantity. But, I might just starting posting more recommendations since I’ve been reading a lot of amazing books that I want to scream about to you all and reviews don’t seem to be all that effective at the moment!

WHAT I DID IN FEBRUARY

February was such a wild ride for me! Starting off with meeting my cousin after almost 2 years and spending so much time catching up with her, to going for a vacation to Goa with my friends to having a thousand assignments to do! It’s been a really long and stressful month for me but one I really enjoyed!

I have so much to say about February and also nothing at all at the same time which is so weird? But it was a really great trip to Goa which despite being right in the middle of the week, ending up with me missing classes and being stressed. I wasn’t very close with this particular group of friends so I was a little hesitant about going but it turned out to be a lot of fun and getting much closer to these friends and I am very glad for that!

PLANS FOR MARCH

February ended with so many assignments and exams right around the corner, which sort of seems to be the theme for March. I have two exams this week and another two in the third week, so I have a a bit of time to prepare but I am really nervous since the pandemic and online teaching has been hard for me to cope with and I am not sure how much of it I can really handle anymore?

I had a good start to college in the first semester, academically, but not having any social life is hitting me hard now since I don’t really have anyone to go to with my doubts or stupid questions about the assignments or exams.

I also have a midterm break in the second week, which might be quite consumed by the exams coming up after that, but I hope I can spend some time reading and relaxing then! I have so many books I keep saying I’ll get to but I never actually go lol so hopefully then! And I am also so behind on ARCs and hoping to get up to speed then!

  2. Your reading challenge stats are as aspiring as you are! I need to get on your reading level! I’m glad you had a good February and got to catch up with your cousin + growing closer to friends! February for me was also a mixed bag of everything happening and being a busy bee so I can relate to that feeling of having so much to say and yet nothing at all. Hopefully March will be even better for you!

    Good luck on your exams Jayati! I believe in you!
