Rewind & Review #56


What's happened these last two weeks?
~I turned in the final draft of a paper that drained me mentally.
~The weather has been all over the map. We got a 2-hour delay on the 15th; then, by the weekend, it was sunny and in the 60s. It got chilly again by the 24th and the weather was absolutely dreadful on the 25th. It's warming up a little, but not much.
~I finished season 6 of Parks & Rec and, to be honest, I'm probably not gonna watch season 7. Sorry, y'all.
~I'm almost done with season 7 of Gilmore Girls!!! It has been put on hold until I've finished Fuller House.
~I submitted my application for on-campus apartment housing. It's in the RD's and God's hands now, and I know God has a plan for me for where He wants me to be. I just hope it's a place I'll be happy and learn and grow in Him.
~I binged Fuller House and finished it in only 2 days. I really wish they'd done more than 13 episodes.
~I went to a bridal expo on Friday night with two of my friends, one of whom is engaged. It was really fun and there was so much good cake

  1. I love Gilmore Girls! And Fuller House so far. I have a few episodes left that I'm hoping I will get to finish today. How are you liking the show?

    1. I liked Fuller House; it was a bit cheesy at times but high on the nostalgia factor.
