Monthly Recap: February 2018

Posted March 22, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

This post is coming all hella late but it couldn’t be helped. I was lazy. Haha. Better late than never, right?

What I Did

February was for basketball.

Meghan’s team went to Conference finals and lost to Westmont. =( Brenna and Ken’s team went to the second round of Playoffs before they were ousted. =( Still, both teams had great seasons and we still got next year so I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’ll come back and do great things next season. We also got to catch one of my cousin’s daughter’s games in Santa Monica and that was fun.

We celebrated Delene, Jarred and my brother Mel’s birthday near the end of the month. I also got to spend some time with my bestie, Therese and that’s always a good time. February was not too shabby on the activities front.

What I Listened To

I’ve been in a Samoan music mood so I’ve been listening to a lot of Samoan music. I’ve been enjoying these Poly Songbook videos on YouTube, too. These are two of my favorites.

What I Watched on TV

I’ve cut way back on the TV shows that I’m watching. Not because I’m trying to spend less time watching TV, but because these are the only shows that I’m still interested in watching at the moment.

What Movies I Watched

1. Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) | 3.75 out of 5
2. Forever My Girl (2018) | 4 out of 5
3. Black Panther (2018) | 5 out of 5

      Wasn’t it amazing? There was absolutely nothing that I didn’t LOVE about the entire movie. I’m low key sad that Michael B. Jordan isn’t going to be in Infinity War but Chadwick is and…*swoon*

      Yes, more Sarina Bowen. Everyone needs more Sarina Bowen in their lives. 🙂

      Have a great week and thanks for stopping by, Amber. 🙂
