Looking Back in January 2015 — All Things Disney

This month was a bit strange because it was the first full month of being out of school forever. I'm in this awkward state of looking for a full-time (or even part-time, really) job but having tons of time to catch up on reading books, watching TV shows and doing whatever the heck I want. Here are a couple of things I did this past month:



In the middle of January, Joe and I took three of our friends (Alex, Esther and Markus) to Southern California to experience the wonderful place that is Disneyland and just enjoy ourselves! We spent two days at Disneyland + California Adventures, visited the Santa Monica Pier, had some DELICIOUS all-you-can-eat korean bbq, ate ice cream macarons twice and played a ton of Trivia Crack + Family Feud.




Loved: Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally, The Giver by Lois Lowry
Liked: Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols, Four by Veronica Roth, The Queen by Kiera Cass
Could've skipped: Since You've Been Gone by Mary Jennifer Payne

Number of books and pages read in January: 5 (and 1 novella) // 1,381 pages



After watching Big Hero 6 with my mom in December, one of my brothers and I decided to expand her knowledge on all things Disney by borrowing a bunch of DVDs from the library. We chose Wreck-it Ralph, one of my favorites, and Monsters University (my dad randomly joined us and he loved it!) I ended up watching Big Hero 6 two more times in January, once with Esther and again with Alex, Joe and Markus. Big Hero 6 is a great movie and I highly recommend it to everyone :)





If you listen to anything today, check out Daniela Andrade's mix of Telegraph Ave/Sober (by Childish Gambino. I also replayed Tove Lo's Queen of the Clouds album a TON of times in January (Not on Drugs is one of my favorites) and Love Me Like You Do by Ellie Goulding.

I just started watching The 100 a couple of days ago and I'm HOOKED, so you'll definitely be seeing that in the next "looking back" post. (If you don't watch it, I recommend you start ASAP!) I hope your January was just as fun as mine!

What was the best book you read in January? Have you seen Big Hero 6 yet?

  1. Ooh new blog look! Love the lighter color! :) The Disney pic is awesome - your friend has great taste in Disney films (*cough* Little Mermaid) I sadly haven't seen Big Hero 6 - I have heard it was good though, so I'm going to watch it!

  2. I've always wanted to go to Disneyland! I've been to Disney World, but want to experience both! I LOVED Big Hero 6! Such a fantastic movie! Wreck It Ralph and Monsters U are also fantastic!

  3. Thank you, Charlene! I love changing things around, but I'm hoping I'll stick with it forever because I've finally found a good mixture of colors. If you haven't watched Big Hero 6 yet, you must soon! It is one of my favorite Disney movies now!

  4. I'm the opposite of you — I've been to Disneyland but I haven't been to Disney World and would LOVE to one day!
