Then and Now: February

By Travelspot06 @travelspot06
Maybe because we had an extra day this year, February was a little long for me. It went by fast but it was a weird month motivation-wise, emotion-wise and mentally in general I guess. This is strange, because I had a month filled with family, friends and good food as well as adequate exercise. However, for some reason, I am feeling a little strange this month. Hopefully March will bring a change in seasons and attitude!
Here is my February recap, the Who, the What and the Where, where I compare what I was doing one year ago to what I am up to now.
2011:  Mr Lovely,  A Vietnamese Butcher and  a thousand people, chickens and items on motorcycles. Then and Now: February
2012:  K and A and A,  The parentals and the Broski. (as well as many other friends and family who are not pictured). Then and Now: February
WHAT: 2011:  Squid on sticks,  Dragonfruit and Pho for breakfast.  Then and Now: February
2012:  Frjtz fries, Turkish sampler, Beet salad and an apple crepe. Then and Now: February
Miles Run:  2011 = 0 / 2012 =111 Lucky number 111! This is good, because I would like to keep up a base of at least 100 miles a month, since I may sign up for a marathon at some point this year and I want be halfway ready at any time! Races:  2011 = 0 / 2012 = 3 Thank goodness for virtual races! They are a fun and inexpensive way to supplement your normal racing schedule! Bay Breeze Half Marathon (Race #2 of 12 in 2012) Run For Sherry Virtual Race Grandma Lill's 95th Birthday Virtual Race
Books Read:  2011 = 3 / 2012 = 5
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet - Jamie Ford: This book was about a Chinese boy growing up in Seattle during WWII. He has a Japanese friend, and when she gets sent to the concentration camps, he is devastated. Not only that, but he has to deal with his father's hatred of the Japanese. TishaRobert Specht: This is a true story about a young teacher in the 1920s who gets sent to a small town in Alaska to teach. She learns quickly that the divide between the whites and Indians is deep, but somehow manages to not bend to the white men's prejudices. Her struggle is moving and her courage is inspiring.

2011:  Cambodia,  Vietnam and  Thailand  Then and Now: February
2012: San Francisco,  Home Then and Now: February
What I see by looking back is that I am spending way more time with family and friends this year, which is great. I have also traveled this February, but only within the State, whereas last year I traveled much further. But no matter what year it is, the food is always good!
Do you like squid? Are you loving this February more or less than last February?
