What? February is over? How time flies. These are the things that made me happy throughout the previous month.
1. Subscription Boxes
My husband and I have been eyeing these monthly subscription boxes for a while until we decided to give them a try.
My hubby’s choice. This box is for geeks and gamers. He started to subscribe last January where the theme was “Invasion”. Basically, the box includes random stuff based from Alien-themed movies and TV Shows. Last Feb, the theme was “Dead” and it features exclusive items based on Deadpool and The Walking Dead. The monthly subscription fee is about $20.
And this is my choice. I’d like to try this because it includes a little bit of everything from beauty products to food. I guess I entered in a good month because the February 2016 box as I’ve heard is the best so far. It even includes a $20 Victoria’s Secret gift card! For only $39.95 (minus $5 for my first box), the total retail value of this box is almost $300. Interested? Click here to subscribe and get $5 off for your first box.
2. Superbowl Halftime Performance
This had been trending because they say Beyonce and Bruno Mars made awesome performances while “stealing the show” from Coldplay who are the main performers . It sounded like Coldplay was bullied by a lot of netizens. This is my first Superbowl in America so I really don’t have a basis of comparison when it comes to halftime performances (except Katy Perry’s last year) but honestly? I think the band did a great job! I love the medley of their songs and everything about their performance.
I just realized I watched movies in the movie house for three consecutive weeks: Hail, Caesar!. Deadpool and Zoolander 2. I won’t share anything about them yet because I’ll post it separately on my February Movie Diary.
4. My Apps of the Month
I’m actually not sure if it made me happy or annoyed. Haha. I couldn’t stop playing it. If you are looking for an addictive game or something just to pass the time, download Color Switch on your phone now. 🙂
High Score Update: 37
DMV Genius (or Genie?)
One of my goals this year is to learn how to drive. The first step is to get my Driving Permit test. I tried to read the handbook for review but it just makes me sleepy everytime. Then, I discovered this nice practice test app! It’s a compilation of questions based from your state handbook. The questions are also categorized and have explanations after you answer them. It’s really cool! Hopefully, it will really make it easier for me once I take the test.
5. Street Fighter V
If you are a 90’s kid, you probably played this game when you were young. I remember when my cousin and I would always choose Chun-Li because she’s pretty. Haha. So my hubby bought the new Street Fighter V and we enjoy playing it. As one of my FB friends commented, “The couple that plays together, stays together. ”
6.Major Award Shows
I can say that I enjoy watching the performances (Yep. Even Justin Bieber’s)! The results are okay, too. Taylor Swift won Album of the Year. I don’t hate her. I actually love 1989 but I remember Sara Bareilles being nominated in the same category last 2014 and didn’t win despite her album being a genius masterpiece. I won’t argue because Daft Punk won that category that year. I guess, it’s just not her time yet.
After the #oscarssowhite controversy, the biggest movie award ceremony was finally held last February 28. Chris Rock hosted the show and he had so many good points on his monologue. Anyways, I’m also happy that Leonardo Dicaprio finally won an Oscar! I saw The Revenant and I truly agree that he deserves it. 🙂
7. Aos Application is Approved!
Yay! I’m now a permanent resident here in the US. That means I won’t be deported soon. Haha. The Adjustment of Status interview is the final step that you have to take after entering the US through a K1 Visa a.k.a Fiance Visa. Once you’re approved, you don’t have to worry about any paperwork for almost two years, anyway.
