Month in Review(s) - February 2019

February was... OK.

Look, I'd love to say it was great. But my Depression has been kind of up-and-down.

So I can't honestly call it 'great' - but 'ok' is fairly accurate.

I survived it. I even enjoyed some of it. So 'ok' is what I'm gonna call it.

And I haven't had many 'ok' months lately - so I think that's pretty good going! 😁

(Ironically, given the Depression/Anxiety, I'm actually naturally quite optimistic. In a cynical way, maybe, but the optimism's still there! #WalkingContradictionForLife)

Partly, I have the awesomeness that is The Umbrella Academy on Netflix to thank for the OK-ness of February - never doubt the little things, my nerdlets, they make the world what it is!

(And Klaus is my boy, ok? Ok.)

I also managed to finish a review! Woo! XD

Check out all my February posts and all that jazz! :)

...this is weirdly specific. But also kind of a mood here on Dora Reads. I shall let this one pass like the magnanimous leader I am! 😅


...really starting to worry about you, dearest nerdlets


So many questions! What do you have a gram of?! And why is it settled?! Somebody tell me! 😅

  1. Ok months are always good! They’re much better than bad months at least. I have been having a lot of ok months too. I hope we both take it one step further to great months!

    1. OK months are acceptable! ;) Hopefully we'll manage some great months one of these days, but if not, we'll still be... well, ok! :) <3

  2. Haha, people Google the weirdest stuff. I’m glad you’re doing okay. I hope you’re having a good March!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. The weirdly specific searches are always my favourite! Lol. Thanks - hope you're having a good March too! :)

  3. I'm glad that you could at least qualify February as being OK. I hope March is treating you even better. I've been enjoying watching Umbrella Academy too.

    1. Thanks. Ha, March is... look a distraction! *runs*

      OMG I love Umbrella Academy sooooooooo muchhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *fangirls embarrassingly* XD

  4. Hope March is going well for you :)
    I haven't heard of Umbrella Academy...I'll have to check that out. Seems like you LOVE it :)

    1. March is best left uncommented on for the time being! Lol.


  5. I haven't heard of The Umbrella Academy. We have Netflix so I'll check it out. Hope your March was ok or better too.

    1. Ooh, I hope you love it! (Or at least like it! Lol.) March was... ha, I don't even know! You'll have to wait for the wrap-up post ;)
