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

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 toΒ 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 Β your name?

Where Does the Time Go?

T Minus 42 Weeks

I’m starting to feel old. In a year I’ve gone from being a perpetual night owl to feeling lucky if I don’t pass out before 10pm. Derby is starting to really take it’s toll on me as well. Between training and board/committee duties I feel both physically and mentally wiped most of the time. Despite all of this, I’m really happy with a lot of the progress I do manage to make. I’m still reading a lot. I’ve started planning and organizing myself more. I’m eating better and taking better care of myself (’cause I’m pretty much falling apart).

February Reviews & Reading Wrap-Up

What a month! It’s been so busy with roller derby and work that I’m lucky I got to read much of anything. The biggest bummer of the month was when I borrowed a couple of Deadpool comics from my local library only to find out they were impossible to read and follow due to a majority of the pages being ripped out. On the up side, I recently discovered Riveted (formerly PulseIt) and couldn’t keep from reading books that caught my eye before the time ran out. As such, I did manage to finish 4 books so below you’ll find mini-reviews and their corresponding challenges.

The Year of Challenges

T Minus 49 Weeks

I had a lot of trouble writing this post. Not because things haven’t happened but because I don’t really know what to say about them. I guess I’ll just recap from last time.

The holidays went well. They were nice and quiet which gave me plenty of time to relax and catch up on things. I only didn’t complete 4 of my bucket list items which isn’t bad considering the previous chaos. I saw The Force Awakens and Continue reading
