My To Be Read Pile

My TBR pile is a monstrosity and only ever seems to be growing no matter how much I read. I have a list of about 50+ books that I want to focus on this year. These are probably my top five.

One Year Later…

T Minus 0 Weeks

This year. Has. Been. Rough. Just some highlights include: my cat getting cancer and losing a leg (she’s better now), barely skating anymore, and losing my job. So, fun times. All that along with other things have really demotivated me from doing anything that wasn’t either Continue reading

5 Fandom Friday: Geeky Tattoos I Want

I’m terrified of getting a tattoo. Not because I’m worried about the pain or scared of needles but because it is a HUGE commitment. I always question if what I want to get will still be something I’ll want permanently attached to my body for the rest of my life or if it’ll still look good when I’m older. I can’t help but get slightly panicked every time I get close to seriously considering one. Which is probably why I refuse to get one until I get a specific one that I have yet to finish planning to perfection (I don’t know if it’ll ever be what I want it to be ’cause then I’d have no excuse not to get it). My boyfriend has several tattoo, most of which are geeky. He’s got 2 Halo tattoos, 2 Mass Effect tattoos, and a Gears of War tattoo, just to name a few. He always jokes that one day he’ll get me tattooed but thankfully he knows I’m hesitant and so he doesn’t push it. If I DID get tattoos (and I have a pretty decent sized list of one’s I’d like to maybe get eventually) then these would definitely be on the top of my list. Continue reading

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Late to the Game TV Discoveries

There’s been quite a few TV shows I’ve hopped into late but these are the top 5 I can think of.

Chuck
Chuck Duh
I think I started chuck on Netflix shortly after the series finale aired. Which is really unfortunate because I love Chuck. I thought the show was really sweet and funny and I could watch Continue reading

5 Fandom Friday: Fandoms I’m Thankful For

This was a struggle to limit myself to only five. I’ll be honest, I couldn’t do it so I had to get a little creative.

Disney/Pixar

Good Dinosaur

Can. Not. Wait.

Animation is probably one of my biggest passions. From drawing cartoons when I was a little kid to learning how to 3D model in Maya, I’ve always loved it. One of my favorite animation studios is Continue reading

So Close Now…

One more week. One more week and then we should finally hear back from the association. Then we can finally do our walk through and get our keys and move. I just want it to happen already! Granted, I’m not even completely packed yet but it’ll be a lot easier to finish up once I can move what I do have packed already.

On the bright side, there’s some fun stuff happening. I’m really looking forward to seeing The Peanuts Movie later this week with one of my favorite people. I’m digging the mix of traditional Peanuts style art with 3D animation and I hear the whole story appeals to a more nostalgic audience than it does to younger viewers. I’ll also be helping try my hand at my first slow cooker recipe. Mmmmm tacos for Taco Tuesday. I also maxed out my first character in Disney Infinity yesterday and have a couple of other characters that are close so I can’t wait to play more and get more characters to max level.

All in all I’m looking forward to the week. Yes, I’m going to working a lot and I’ve still got plenty to pack but I also know I’ll be spending quality time with people I care about. It’s gonna be a busy week but it should also be a good one.
