February Wrap-Up and March TBR10:00 AM
As usual, another month has flown by without us realizing! I can't believe we're moving on to March. Lately time does feel to fly so fast!
February is another busy month for me. It's like a day without test is a day wasted for my school, so obviously we've been having exams EVERYDAY. It has been going on since mid-January and I'm sure it will continue until April a.k.a my national exams. Give me a break.
The problem is, with that many test, I still haven't been able to pass my math and physics tests. And I've only passed the chemistry tests once. It's just horrible. I'm officially terrified for national exams.
But the good news is, this month isn't as busy as last month. The last two weeks are for practical exams, so I could lay back a little and read A LOT of books!

Books I Want to Read
I won't set my goals really high this month, because I know it will also be a month full of exams and school work. 2 months left until I graduate! And since March is technically my last real month at school, I just want to borrow a lot of books from the library while I still can...
- Alice's Adventure in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll
- Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini
- The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

Favorites This Month
- This month, I unexpectedly join a new fandom. This is such a bad timing with all the exams, but I can't help it! I actually fell for Big Bang. For those of you who doesn't know, Big Band is South Korean group that is really, really famous. But their songs are actually amazing! Plus they really put efforts with their song, all the energy and coreography. THEY'RE JUST AMAZING GUYS.
- Happy Chinese New Year guys! I received a lot of hongbao (red envelope) and ate lots of delicious Chinese food. YUM.
- Hymn for the Weekend by Coldplay is my jam this month! I just love the chill vibe it gives, and the video is super amazing.
- I WATCHED PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Not the zombies one, the original one. I know it's from 2005, and I wanted to watched it for Valentine's day, but my internet was down so I watched it just yesterday. And oh God. I forget how much I love the book and this movie just reignite my love for it. I immediately googled everything about the Regency Era, and I put Chatsworth house as my must-visit location in the UK. And now I'm in the mood to read everything Jane Austen related.
- LEO WON THE OSCARS GUYS. He's been waiting for so long and now he finally gets it!<3 I'm so happy for him!
