One month down, eleven more to go. It’s crazy how fast time goes by when you are busy, having fun, and just doing what you love. It’s also crazy to think that I will have my first full week of school this week for the first time since December. Any who, January has ended and it’s time for out monthly wrap up! I would have to say that I had a pretty good reading month but there is always room for improvement. As I look back on January, why don’t you come with me on the ride? Let’s get it started.

Pretty Little Liars –
Yes, this was included in the December 2016 wrap up but basically this show controlled my life this month. I was so addicted with this show. I would watch this show whenever I could get time to do so! I finally understand everything that is happening in the show and I have fallen in love with so many things – including Toby and Spencer. They literally give me life. I don’t know of any better couples in the show, or even in real life. This show had everything that I needed! I needed the next episodes to come out because I don’t want to wait until April 18!
Jane the Virgin –
This show was amazing. I don’t think that there was ever a dull moment in this show. One Netflix, they only had up to the season two finale, even though season three is playing on TV right now. Sadly, our TV doesn’t have the beginning of season 3, which is what I need. Before you go and ask, I was always team Michael, and I always will be. The twist, the love, the passion, the mystery, the babies, what else could be better? There was always a laugh coming out of me while I watched this show!
I know what you are thinking. Driving? Why would this be one of your obsessions? Well, I have had my permit now for about three months and I really enjoy doing it. I used to hate driving because either my mom was not comfortable with me driving there, or it would just be for three minutes. Now, I am like my mom’s personal driver. Anywhere that we go without my dad, I drive and I really enjoy it. I like the fact that I can take control of something and almost be like the car’s master. I can officially say these two things: I have a need for speed and I have became a backseat driver (that story can wait until another time! 🙂 )
