5 Films I’m Excited For in 2017

Back in college, I used to go to the theatre every week to catch the new releases at midnight. Now that I have less time and want to save money rather than watch movies I’m only sort of into, my movie going experience has shifted. Now I pick movies I really want to see and make a bigger deal out of it (like going to Cinebistro). There are a few movies this year I’m really excited for but 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

An Interview With Myself

So I’m gonna try to do Beauty and the Bookshelf‘s Get Up Offa That Slump challenge just to get used to posting content more regularly (already failing as this should have been up yesterday). The first challenge is to do an interview… with yourself. Soooooo this should be interesting.

So we’re doing this huh?

Yes.

It’s totally weird though right?

Totally.

Well I guess let’s start with a simple one. What’s  your name?

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

Start of Something New

About a month ago my mom and I found a note on our door telling us we had until the end of October to move out. While we really weren’t happy where we were living (and that’s an understatement) it was still a shock. We had to move and we had no plans.

Over the course of the month we went to look at apartment after apartment. Being limited by money and location, we were left with few options. After weeks of looking and stress, our third offer was accepted (third time’s the charm, right?). Those weeks left us with little time. We are still undergoing the application process with the association and won’t be out before the end of the month. Thankfully, because we had a place locked down, we were given some extra time to finalize the details and move.

The place we are going is small. Like really, really small. But our plan is to spend the year budgeting, saving, and searching for a bigger, better, more permanent home. With this major change, I hope to start a domino effect of change in my life. I am not very happy where I am in both my professional career and personal endeavors. I feel stuck and out of place.

I plan to spend the upcoming 52 weeks (with the countdown beginning when we move) figuring out my place and purpose, and sharing it with all of you of course. My goal is to end the year happier and with a better understanding of my future direction. I also plan on just sharing my passions and every day journey (which is sure to be full of geekery and roller derby).
