February In Review, What I Got Up To

Once again, this month flew by. I can’t believe we’re already a week into March. Where is 2020 going?!

This month I played a LOT of video games, both on my own and with friends. On my own has been Sonic The Hedgehog 1 & 2, and Sonic Spinball. I love Sonic! With friends, plenty of Mario Party.

One Monday Scott and I went to High Tea. It was the first time for both of us and I’m happy to report that we both loved it! We were so stuffed afterwards that we had to go for a nice walk to make our stomach’s feel comfortable again haha.

We went to a few comedy shows for JFL NorthWest. I love when JFL comes in February, as it gives us the opportunity to see lots of great comics.

We spent one night at The Wallflower, a restaurant that has Wall to Wall comedy once per month. We always go to Wall to Wall comedy when we can, and I was so happy for them to be part of the festival.

The big show we saw was Bill Burr. It was such an incredible show! He is amazing. 😀

Visiting El Cora Crocodile Sanctuary. One of my favorite memories from our Puerto Vallarta trip. A must do if you are in Puerto Vallarta or nearby.

High Tea At Neverland Tea Salon. The theme was Mad Hatter’s, so of course I had to go!

Where To Eat In Puerto Vallarta – Victor’s Place. This was by far the best restaurant I’ve ever eaten at! I would happily go back to Puerto Vallarta just to eat here again.

Books Read

I finished reading Crash and Burn, by Artie Lange.

Working It! by RuPaul. This was a quick and easy read. I finished it in two hours. Full of tips for fashion, beauty, and all things drag.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz, by Heather Morris. This is one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time. I could not put this book down, I devoured it. The perspective of Lale, being the prisoner who had to tattoo all of those who came through Auschwitz-Birkenau, was so interesting. This is a fictionalized account of Lale’s story while he was imprisoned, and how fell in love while in the worst conditions.

Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, by J.K. Rowling. A classic. It’s been years since I’ve read this series, so I decided to start again. I watch the movies every year, and it’s been cool to see what I forgot about in the books. Yes, I am team “The books where better”, but I still love those movies.

Movies Seen At The Cinema

I only saw one in the cinema this month, which was Jojo Rabbit. We weren’t going to see this, but at last minute decided to go. I’m really glad we saw this on the big screen. I think if we waited and saw this on our TV, we would have regretted it.

How was your February?

What are you getting up to in March?

Hi! I’m Brooklyn, a Canadian whose aim is to see as much of the world as I can, on my limited vacation days. I work full time, and want to show you how it is possible to do just that, while still making use of those precious vacation days.
