January Book Reviews

A new year has begun and so has my yearly Book Challenges. I am renewing my goal of 50 books this year. I’ve felt that I’ve been spending so much time doing unnecessary things like watching youtube and scrolling when I could be reading so I’m back on 50 in 52 weeks! 

With the end of January, I am off to a promising start but the problem is, I have very few books on my To-be Read List. In need of recommendations, STAT! Please flood my messages with books you think I need to read and I will add them to the list for this year 🙂 

5 Books read within the first four weeks of 2023. Here is how they were:

The Adulting Learning Curve

Two years ago today I graduated college, but it was 2020 so while it was a big moment it still felt like nothing really changed. But now two years later, a lot has changed. (Although surprisingly its raining here just like it was that day).

The past few monthsI’ve felt like I have been in an Learning to Adult crash course. Which is a big reason why the blog has been completely stagnant. In August I unexpectedly took a last-minute job teaching second grade. Those of you who have been around for a while know that I went to college to get my degree in theater, and those of you who know me, know I’ve said many times “no way will I go into teaching.”  Yeah… jokes on me.  I teach second grade, and even crazier… I like it.

Why you should Gogh to this Exhibit

The Beyond Van Gogh: Immersive Experience is an exhibit that is currently happening around the country. The exhibit’s purpose is to show the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh in a way never experienced before.  With the use of projection and original scoring, you can view 300 of Van Gogh’s art as though you are in the paintings. 

My uncle bought us tickets for my birthday last year, but it didn’t come to San Diego until this month. I thought it was worth the wait. 

You begin in a room filled with projected information depicting Van Gogh’s life and includes quotes as well as empty frames creating the walkways. They are also a fun photo opportunity. 

Then the best part and the reason to go: the Projection Room.

The Practical Summer Things List

The Month of July is THE summer month. It is the month where everything you wanted to do over the summer is planned to get done. The days are super long and basically every day is sunny and hot. The month where every day can be spent in the water. I like July. 

This summer I am trying to add even small fun new things into my days. Even if that is something as small as running to grab an ice cream just cuz or planning an extra game night. 

Let’s live for all the little moments this summer!
