February was definitely a busy time for me since it was when my midterms were. I had a reading break but most of that was spent on studying although I did manage to save a day to relax. However I regretted it soon after when I realized how much more productive I could have been had I actually gotten some chores accomplished that day.
February is the time for the hot chocolate festival!
On the right is Christella Decadence from Chez Christopher. It was absolutely delicious, I also tried their other hot chocolate, Brownie Delight but this was much better as it was less sweet and the accompanying chocolate ball was flavorful as well. We were instructed to put it into our drink but I had heard people around me say it was better to just eat it on it’s own so that’s what I did.
On the left are two drinks from Bella Gelateria. The white one is Earl Goes Boom, a white chocolate with Earl Grey and lavender. The darker one is one of the impromptu choices they had, I can’t remember what it was specifically called though. Mines is the later and it was also delicious, I love how the hot chocolate options are less sweet now and getting so exciting! My friend had the Earl Goes Boom and I had a sip, while I enjoy Earl Grey I don’t particularly like white chocolate and lavender but my friend loved her drink. These both came accompanied with a gelato cookie bar that had to be consumed quickly as the gelato was melting fast.
It’s also the time for dreary rainy days (and studying in the library).
BUT also the time for Valentines day! I was extremely fortunate to receive two sweet packages this year. Yes, I ate all that chocolate, except for that purple packaged bar because my mom devoured it. The other bar was a smores bar and really tasty.
Lastly, February is the time for Chinese New Year. My cousin gave adorable red envelopes, although they’re technically not red.
