January passed by so fast, I blinked and it was gone. I read two books this month, one of which was A Court of Silver Flames. Yes, I finally got to this book and I enjoyed every second of it. This series means so much to me and Velaris is my home.
I LOVED Nesta’s perspective because I could relate to her a lot more than Feyre. I did also cry reading this book- the third book to ever make me cry! It was a 5 star read and I can’t wait for the next one (which better be from Azriel’s perspective). It’s enemies to lovers and she falls in love with her trainer- which I’ve found to be a specific trope I love.
My favorite song of the month was Tear Me Apart by Nic Howell. He’s a really small artist but I randomly found this song and fell in love. Coincidentally it fits the relationship between Nesta and Cassian from A Court of Silver Flames perfectly. It has strong electric guitar and drums which I live for. The ending at 3:06-3:17 is insane. The pauses between the crashing drums builds the song up so high. When I first heard it, I pictured myself listening to this live and it gave me chills. It’s been on repeat for the whole month and has made its way onto my happiness playlist because it’s that good.
I had two trips to Disney this month, both of which I went with my mom. The first trip on the 7th, we rode Guardians and It’s a Small World. I grabbed some vegan carrot cake ice cream from Salt and Straw and then we sat in the lobby of the Grand Californian.
The second trip was on the 29th and we rode Rise and Space Mountain. We had a character breakfast at the Grand Californian which was adorable seeing all the characters in their wilderness attire. I finally got to have my Disney eggs Benedict and Mickey waffles. I got the cold brew black caff from Docking Bay 7 which was better than I expected but still a bit too sweet for my liking. We decided to visit Avenger’s Campus to just walk through and I FINALLY SAW SHANG-CHI!!!! Every single time I go to Disney, I walk through Avenger’s Campus hoping to see him and I never do, but I got so lucky this day. When I saw him, I RAN. I was freaking out and so over the moon happy to see him. I took some pics in front of the jeep too. I grabbed a vodka lemonade and then we headed out.
I started classes again this month after a very short winter break. It’s been a struggle honestly just because I’m tired of school. I want a break but there’s no time for a break so I just have to keep going. The material isn’t difficult. I’m learning things specific to what I want to do in the future. I am just tired of assignments and essays and all of those tedious things.
I got my hair done at a new salon! I got long layers in the front and a small trim. I did go a little longer than usual just because I was nervous going to a new salon, but I will definitely go shorter next time.
Overall, the month was a good one. I had lots of fun and tried to focus more on the things that make me happy 🙂 Next month already has so many insanely exciting things in the works, y’all are just going to have to wait and see!
