All About February

February 25, 2016

February has flown by, and not because there's only twenty nine days within it, I don't even know where the time has gone! I feel like I've done nothing of note this month, instead focusing on starting projects and events that are going to continue into March, keep your eyes peeled! March is going to be crazy as so many things are going on, but I'm sure everything will work out fine. Here's February.
Life
  • I bought myself my first car and I'm so proud of it, and after much persuasion (yes, that's from you Megan..) I've given it a name, even though it is a car. A piece of metal. A piece of machinery with a name. God I feel embarrassed even saying it has a name. But it does.
  • I got my first set of exam results for my degree and I'm so proud of myself! Next stop is getting a first overall for first year - a girl can hope!
  • I've fallen in love with sushi and pineapple juice once again, this feels like a 2015 throwback and I'm loving every minute of fruit and fish filled goodness.
  • I had acrylic nails applied for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and after some getting used to, I adore them and the noise they make when I hit them against each other. It's the small things in life. 
  • I was featured in an article for The Times, which you can find here and I appeared on TV for 4Music in their Valentines special of Your4Music, you can see a picture of me doing my thing here on my Instagram.

Films
  • The Riot Club featuring Sam Claflin as the main character was a weird film choice for a Sunday afternoon, but a memorable one nonetheless. TRC focuses on a group of young Oxford students, members of the famed Riot Club whom exist solely to cause havoc at the expense of others. Although there were many a picturesque scene overlooking the lawns of one of the most famous universities in the world, the film was centered around a single country pub where things got very out of hand. It's a film I'm glad I saw and I was disgusted at the opinions of the characters, though I would never choose to see it again. 
  • Deadpool was one of only two cinema viewings this month, and was a great extension to the X Men group of films, you can read my review of the film here. Its a humour filled, R rated comedy which turns the idea of a super hero film on its head, and for the better.
  • The Forest (full review coming very soon) was another weird ass film which calls itself a horror, but I just thought it was creepy. Too creepy. Based on a real life forest in Japan, it's a bit naff and makes Natalie Dormer look like an idiot rather than a respected actress, but I'm sure somebody out there will like it, I just didn't. 
Music
  • Little Mix's latest album Get Weird has been on constant repeat for the last two weeks, and although I still can't hit the high notes of Perrie Edwards, it's a very enjoyable listen and one that is appropriate for easy listening and high intensity workouts.
  • Melanie Martinez's Cry Baby (Deluxe) album is a new find as suggested by my little sister and I've found it to be the perfect mix of Lana Del Rey's magical yet sometimes samey tones and Marina and the Diamonds' pop/indie deep voice. 
  • Panic! At The Disco's newly released Death Of A Batchelor album is what I listen to in the car as I try and navigate the dual carriageway and all the crashes that come with it, and it's perfect happy music as the various different musical styles included in the record make it easy to relisten, as it doesn't get boring. You can read my full review of the album here.
Books
  • Carrie Hope Fletcher's All I Know Now is a self help, advice type book and in turn, the first (and probably last) Youtuber book I've ever bought. It's filled with laughs and instructions on how to make yourself a better person, standard fare in an advice book aimed at young teenagers. I really like Carrie's Youtube channel (ItsWayPastMyBedTime) and the fact she had her hair cut off for charity the other week made me smile a lot. 
  • The University left a helluva lot of books on my to-read list this term about the oh so exciting topics of business culture and statistics, which were incredibly helpful yet not the best things I've ever read in my life (understatement of the century).
