February 28, 2015 • Cee • Monthly Recap

february

February was an okay month, but by the end, it just became extremely disappointing and sad. That’s life, man.

  • The big news: I got a new phone! A smartphone! After four and a half years with my slider phone, I have upgraded! And my phone is beautifulllllllll. (Though I’m internally crying at how much I spent. Phones are expensive!) I haven’t named my phone yet, which is a shame since I always name my gadgets. I’m hoping it comes to me soon! It shall not remain nameless!
  • Job hunting update: Much sadness. On Wednesday, I received an email, saying I was in consideration for this editorial position I was really excited about. They asked me to send in writing samples of past works + responses to the requests they made. Yesterday, I sent it in. Hours after I sent it, I received word I was not in consideration anymore, which really sucked because I thought I was a strong candidate. I’m hoping they change their mind, but I’m not holding my breath. I’m just moping around in my room. (I don’t want pity or the “there are other jobs out there” comments please. I’ve had enough of those.)
  • The Book Blogger Love-A-Thon happened, and it was amazing. I spent the last day just shouting at people because of my excitement! Thank you to the always lovely Alexa for hosting it! <3

  1. Good luck with finding a name for your precious, new phone ;) That sucks and I hope they turn around. The love-a-thon was, like last year, another highlight in my blogging career <3 So much fun and love.

    HAPPY March!

  3. Woot on the new phone! I love getting gadgets too, though I’ve been seriously lacking on giving them proper names! And that Jane Austen book looks lovely, I’d like to have that on my coffee table. You are giving me fantastic ideas. :D

    Congrats to the smartphone society! My phone’ name is Sammy, ’cause he is a Samsung.. lol
    The Walled City is one I had wanted to read, but after your DNF, I think I will go read more reviews and see what the norm is. I wish-listed it based on the synopsis.
    Happy March reading!
