Books I've Read & Places I've Loved: February 2018

Well, we've officially reached the end of the second month of 2018, and wow does that feel good. February has always been a filler of sorts for me, as I wrote about last week. It was good this year, though, as I did some cool things and read a really good book. In case you're wondering, yes I did go through the feeling of wanting to cut my hair again, but no, it's still all there.  



The Actor's Life: A Survival Guide by Jenna Fischer

I saw this book on Amazon back in December, and instantly added it to a wish list. It's one of those books where I knew I'd need to read it eventually, and also knew that it would be helpful in the long run. When I started reading it this month, I realized that every page was going to have at least one sentence underlined. It's filled to the brim with information, anecdotes from her first few years in the industry, and reminders of why I want to be an actress. This isn't a book I'd recommend to everyone, because if you want to be a nurse you'll get nothing from it. But it was certainly a good book for me, and I have  a feeling I'll be going back to it again and again as the years go by.

Starbucks and Trader Joe's

Even though I see her almost everyday, Annaliese and I realized that we hadn't talked in a while. So we met up on a normal Sunday at a Starbucks and caught up over coffee. We sat in big, brown chairs in the corner and basically just poured out our life updates, and it was wonderful. I wanted new flowers for my room since the daffodils died, so she walked with me to the Trader Joe's close by and we both picked out a bouquet. Of course we had to take pictures with the flowers next to the wall outside the Trader Joe's, and that is how the above picture came to be. 

I've said this a few times already this month, but February is often a sort of filler for the rest of the year. This month has been good, though, with laughter, lots of writing, and birthdays. But I am still very excited for March, because it's looking to be one of my favorite months of the entire year.
