January Wrap Up

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Started School Again
January means the start to a whole new semester of school. The good news? We are halfway done with the school year! The bad news? We have another half a school year of stress, tests, tears, and loads of homework to get through. We do love learning and obviously view it as a necessity, but it can get very stressful and frustrating at times (especially when we both procrastinate our homework as much as possible and get no sleep). School keeps us very busy! 

Improved our Diets!
Our goal for January was to be healthier. Well now we can confidently say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! We started drinking smoothies and eating other healthy breakfasts packed with nutrients every morning which we found was a great start to our day! Another one of our favorites for this month was a spinach salad with almonds, dried cranberries, and strawberry balsamic vinaigrette. It's so delicious! But we definitely did not deprive ourselves from eating the things we wanted to (sorry, but Nutella will always be the key to our hearts). We will have some healthy snacks and recipes up here sometime soon!

Ice Skating 
Next year, I will hopefully be part of the Yearbook staff at my school. The Newspaper/Yearbook crew went ice skating at Crown Center Plaza on one very VERY cold Sunday night this month. I'm not kidding, the temperature was below freezing! Crazy right? Despite this, I had a wonderful time and made some amazing memories with great friends! -Ivana

Europe Concert
This was a night for the books! Our dad is really into European bands and we were really excited to get to do something special with him! We had a great time at the "Europe" concert in Lawrence, Kansas! Many of you may know the song "The Final Countdown" which is definitely the bands most famous song to date. The concert itself was interesting for us as we are not rockers but the experience proved to be a valuable and memorable one! It was our first rock concert and we may have lost half of our hearing afterwards, but it was one of our most enjoyable experiences yet!

Good Weather and Walks Around KC
Towards the end of this month Kansas has been showing some beautiful weather! Usually we have quite a cold winter here so this was a pleasant surprise. It encourage us to get out more, go on walks, and explore around town some more. One of our favorite places in Kansas City is the Plaza that is downtown. It is a great place for walking around! We just recently went there for a Chinese New Year event which was a great cultural experience! Then we just walked around and enjoyed the weather at the Plaza. 

Those were some of the most note-worthy things we did this month! We want to start doing monthly wrap-ups so that we have something to look back on at the end of this years so hopefully we will be doing them every month! We hope your January went well! Let us know if you want to see more of these posts!
