Rewind & Review #58


~I was on spring break! I went to downtown Richmond, visited the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (and met Degas's La Petite Danseuse), saw Zootopia, baked, read, and blogged. But the break was definitely too short.
~I won NOVL's February box, curated by the Poppy editors! I was so excited when it arrived. I got four books (listed below), a tote bag, a temporary tattoo, pencils, and nail polish.
~I received my first Happy Hello bookmarks - I got Cath, Levi, St. Clair, and Anna. And I may have already received a second order... (I got the first three Lunar Chronicles couples.)
~We didn't get the apartment. We made it onto the wait-list and were told we would hear after the apartment housing night where everyone would pick their apartments, but we never heard back. I'm applying for a single room now.
~I had half of my Easter break. I was stuck on campus because most of my friends went home or somewhere else to spend the holiday with family, and I couldn't. I tried to be productive and get a lot of my history paper done, though.
