january was a good start to 2017. i felt extremely nervous and unsure for the entirety of THE FUTURE during the first few days, but i’m better now. i auditioned for two ballet summer programs last month, which went better than i expected. i’ve decided to go to american ballet theatre’s summer program again, so i’ll be in new york for the summer! it seems a little surreal to go again. ? i was sick the last two weeks of january so my days have mostly been filled with snotty tissues but *shrug*. that’s what happens when it rains for ten minutes in los angeles. (kidding! it was actually pretty cold for us OKAY.)
read this month:
- WAYFARER, by alexandra bracken – ★★★★✩
- HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE, by j.k. rowling – ★★★★✩
- THE DARKEST MINDS, by alexandra bracken – ★★★★★ (reread)
- SUITCASE OF HAPPYNESS, by mark jaffe – ★★★★✩
- CARAVAL, by stephanie garber – ★★★★★
january was SUCH a good reading month, i’m finding it hard to believe it myself. maybe it’s because the new year didn’t give me the pressure of needing to finish a reading goal, but i actually WANTED TO READ. i haven’t felt this motivated in probably… six months. and these were all such good books i feel so :”’).

i feel like i always say this but MAN i’m so excited for this next month. february is small but mighty. there are some surprises coming on the blog, so keep your eyes peeled for that.. *wink wink* i’m also staying with my sister in new york for a month (for ballet auditions) and it will be my first time experiencing a ~real~ winter. snow??? degrees lower than the 40’s??? AH. i don’t know if i should be worried or EXTREMELY PUMPED. probably a bit of both.
- cook more often
