February 2018 Wrap Up

9:30:00 AM


      Hey you guys! I can't believe February is already over! This year is just flying by, which is exciting yet terrifying at the same time because it means I'm closer to graduating university and (hopefully) moving on to medical school and the real world.

     Like I said in my last post, I didn't get much reading done this month outside of class, but without further ado, here is what I read this month.

46793   753025  
 37875089   38503488

     So I read "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Looking Backward" for my history class, and I didn't hate them as much as I thought I was going to. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was a little hard to get through because it made me pretty mad, but not nearly as mad as I thought it was going to make me. As a person of color, my opinions on this book were a lot different than those of my classmates and professors. As for "Looking Backwards", it gave in interesting insight into what people back in 1887 thought America could be like in 2000 if capitalism was gone and replaced by socialism and equality of all regardless of class and gender. There were some things that I feel like would be great if implemented, while other things I know could never happen because they are too ingrained in the very structure of the United States.

      Overall, this was a pretty terrible reading month, but I'm okay with that, because academically, socially, and mentally, I'm doing great.

A Book and Life Update: 2/25/2018

11:23:00 AM


      Hey everyone! So I haven't had a post go up since February 3rd, so I figured I would write a post to show you guys that I'm still here... barely....

      I honestly haven't read any books for pleasure since last month. Two of my classes this semester require quite a bit of reading, so I've been focusing on reading those books. Some of them have been interesting, others... not so much. I'll give you guys my thoughts on my next wrap-up or mini-review series. 

      Keeping up with the honesty, I've had time to do personal reading, but I just haven't been feeling it. When I'm done doing school stuff, I just watch Youtube or Netflix because I want mindless entertainment. I've read some graphic novels here and there, but that's about it.

      As far as life goes, it's been a pretty solid month actually. I saw "Black Panther" twice and really liked it. I think this review right here really articulates how I felt about the movie. I went to my last school dance ever and it was a complete letdown, which honestly wasn't surprising because my university doesn't do formal functions very well because we're all a bunch of nerds, and most the nerds here can't dance. I've been spending a lot of time with a girl who has become my best friend, and for the first time in many semesters, I don't feel alone. I think I can honestly say this is my first semester in a while where I haven't felt depressed or filled with anxiety. 

      Next month I'm going to the "Collegiate Media Association" Conference in 2018 as a representative for the film production and undergraduate research journal organizations I'm an exec board member of, so I'm really excited about that. Even though I'm a science chick and not going into media when I graduate, it is good info to pass on to other members of my clubs and might actually help me with this blog once I have more time to dedicate to it. I'm also just really excited to go back to NYC. I love that city with all of my heart and I know that's where I want to end up one day (hopefully sooner rather than later). 

      I also take the MCAT next month, which I've got a little anxiety about, but at this point I feel like overall I'll do alright and I'm confident that when it comes down to medical school applications I will present myself as a great, holistic applicant.

      So all of that being said, after my end of the month wrap-up, I might not have a blog post up for a few weeks or a month.

January 2018 Wrap Up

3:26:00 PM


      January was probably one of the least eventful months I've had in a while, which I fully enjoyed. I spent the first part of the month doing research for my study abroad class before coming back for the spring semester. This month also marked my final year of undergrad, which I still can't believe is already happening. So without further ado, here is my very small wrap up.

Books I Read

Blog Posts

      That's about it. I haven't done much reading, blogging, or much of anything really since coming back to school. I don't expec to get much reading or blogging done in February either, but who knows, I still have an entire month left to proof myself wrong.

My Rating System

★★★★★ This book is a gift from the literary gods
★★★★ This book was pretty damn good
★★★ This book had potential but missed the bar
★★ I probably didn't finish this book or it was god awful
★ Why does this book exist?
