Though my favorite month of the year is January (Capricorns what's goooood), I also have to realize that there are good qualities about the other months throughout the year. Once they pass, you only have to wait 11 more months to get back in the same month, which is unfortunate when it's the first day of summer and you realize you have to wait a little over 11 months just to get back to the glorious feeling of no more school. Thus, I decided to make a list of the great qualities February has jto get me through this short month.
1) Black History Month
Ironically, the shortest month of the year is also the one that represents one of the most targeted populations in the United States. Throughout the month, Black and African-American communities celebrate our culture, ccreativity, inspirations, traditions, and a whole lot more in many planned events and campaigns, especially shown on social media.
2) The Important Awards Shows

Pretty much anything NOT listing "Choice Awards" in its titles, aka Grammys, BAFTAs, Oscars, Emmys, etc. It's a good month to get 3/4 of the prestigious EGOT awards and to free up your Sunday night, pop some popcorn, and watch 2-4 hours of pure celebrity achievements. It's a yearly tradition for me, and it's always amazing to see the underdogs win an award. (I JUST WANT LIN-MANUEL TO GET HIS EGOT!!!)
3) Valentine's Day (CANDY)

I'm honestly not a huge Valentine's Day fan, and it's not because I have no one to celebrate with (if I do their name is Food, Comfort Food). I do, however, love the idea of huge discount packs of clothes, candy, pillows, trinkets, you name it at various stores. Even going shopping in January, I saw huge assortments of Reece's hearts in Walmart! (feel free to mail this to me :))
4) Spring Break is Coming

Though I do enjoy the winter, I love being in the nice sun enjoying the activities of Spring Term (SPRINGFEST!!). With that, I also get to go home for 10 days to relax, and think of a time where I don't need to do work! And I think that's any college student's dream. Hang in there everyone, February's almost over!
