And Now We Wait
My mother has been going through dialysis twice a week since December 2013 and while, it’s not the best situation to be in, I’m extremely grateful it’s not worse. Good news is that she’s up for transplant sometime in February, so January was spent figuring out what tests to get done and taking care of her. I hope everything goes well as it’s pretty daunting.
More Like Driving Rage
Sure, I’ve driven a car before but I never learned how to. The first few times I drove one, I hated the amount of work it all takes! I just thinks it takes a lot of attention to not die and I’m already doing that by living. However, I’m pretty determined to learn and I damn well, will.
I binge-watched The 100 till its mid-finale of the second season in December and I survived. Mainly because I lowered my expectations so much going in, that I was all meh during the first season. (Also, the first few episodes are total garbage). The second season got infinitesimally better and the mid-season finale shocked me. But then even before January 21st rolled around, my life became all about the 100 because of the promos and clips. The 100 fucked me up so bad, I don’t think there’s a show I love more. Cannot recommend enough.
Let’s Chat Feels and Books
I joined a couple of group chats with the #The100kru and one with Aditi, Asti, Crini and Mel. And oh, there’s another one I’m in with the participants of PopSugar 2015 reading challenge (re: Crini, Elaine, Lillian and Jo). I love it because so many bookish talks. Heaven.
|Look at that face! (´∀｀)♡|
I finally caught up on Orphan Black because Eve made me and damn, I love it so much more now. Also, shipping Hesse like anything.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is right there with The Big Bang Theory when it comes to comedy shows.
I also started watching Hindsight and probably won’t continue, ha.
The 100 took over my life and damn that show. Much devastation, most tears.
As much as I like parallels to flashbacks in Arrow, I think the show is currently a bit lacking.
Suits return was perfect. So many feelings.
How to Get Away with Murder came back after a break and it’s better than ever. Can I have more Coliver, please?
I gave up on The Vampire Diaries but then Elaine gave me an idea of a fast-forward watch. Damn that plot. Such garbage, much eye-rolling. All I really like now are Steroline scenes but I don’t ship them together yet. Le sigh.
I’m now surprised I even watch movies any more.
|So f i e r c e!|
Lucy (8/10) – I really, really liked the concept and I think it was pretty well executed. Action-packed and highly engrossing despite being a bit cheesy.
I didn’t try out any new apps this month except one.
|Spotify because music is important, okay.|

|Leighton Meester is back and fabulous! // Forever in love with Fall Out Boy // OOO AAA is amazing and all hail Sandra ’cause she discovered it|
The spotify app really bugs me as well. I guess licensing might be different for mobile and desktop use but it still confuses me how you can't select specific songs to listen to on mobile but you can on desktop. I still use it a lot though because out of all of the streaming apps I've seen so far, in my opinion it's still the best.
Jealous of your Harry Potter boxed set! They look beautiful.
Have a good February Sana!
Also I went listening to Leighton Meester after this and am a little bit obsessed. I've been listening to Heartstrings on repeat this entire afternoon. It's sooo freaking good SO THANK YOU for bringing this song to my notice.
I'm sorry to hear about your mother. Good luck to both of you and I wish you guys all the strength to get through this situation. I am currently catching up with the second season of The 100 and some twists are, WOW. The whatsapp chat is a little quiet now, but I love hanging out with you guys so we can talk more 😀 This reminds me I should get started on your letter for the pen pal thingy. That is also a stunning HP box set <3

Oh my god, that's a gorgeous set of Harry Potter books I'M IN LOVE *__* I'm praying for the best for your mother, hopefully she will be able to get through this 🙂 I've seen Lucy and it was pretty great! The special effects were STUNNING! Though it would be nicer if there were some kind of explanation about some parts…
January was filled with me slacking off but let's hope for a better February for everyone hahaha! xD
Joséphine Simone says
May all go well with the transplant for your mother! Keep staying strong throughout for her <3
Uhm, since when is only shuffling allowed on the Spotify mobile app? I can freely choose the songs I want to listen to and in what sequence…
