Hello (snowless) December!

Life, Uncategorized

I've sorta been in slight shock that it's already December and the fact that it's already the SECOND week of December! Seriously, where did the time fly!? Someone please tell me. Explain this tomfoolery to me right now! We finally picked up a tree and up it up and got it all decorated. The houses around us have super intense lights and decorations and all we have outside is a…

Random Acts of Fandom!

Blogging, Life

I'm sure everyone, unless you just found my blog yesterday, remembers my period of radio silence/slight depression. Moving half way across this massive country really takes a lot out of you. Also, trying to become a functioning (properly) adult was taking its own toll on my mental health as I struggled through a lot of dead ends searching for jobs and lots of rejection. My amazing blogger friend Kayly from…

What I’ve Really Been Up To

Life

So there has been a lot (A LOT) of radio silence my way recently...even after I said, and I quote: "Now I'm keeping a schedule again, which has really helped. I've also decided on a new blogging schedule so I don't overwhelm myself again." Though, not to say I overwhelmed myself again...I just....I don't know...forgot? I was so into everything else I've been doing: Taking care of the kitten, attempting…

Life & Finding a Pace

Life

As most of you are well aware. I fell into quite a slump the past few months. June, July, and August were all pretty crummy. I was feeling rather not like myself, I was depressed, and I had a lack of energy and didn't feel like doing anything at all. I had trouble keeping up with anything and I didn't even care that I was falling behind or not doing…

Blogging

I was nominated for this award by 8-bit Octopus and she gave the topic as: How has finding a fandom helped you express yourself in real life? Which is quite the interesting topic to write about! But first, I should go over how this award works: You write about the topic that whoever nonimated you gave Put the award somewhere in the post Nominate other bloggers Give your nominees a new…

New Member of the Family

Life

Meet Yuki!  This is our new little kitty that has joined the family! She's only five months old and a rescue from a local shelter called Special Pals! (Which is a pretty awesome shelter if you live in the Houston/Katy, TX area!) She was bottle fed as a kitten and was sent back to the shelter from her first home because she didn't get along with other pets and was…

Bogged Down

Life

May page views have fallen about as low as my motivation. Bum-dum tish. My apologies for the mini blogging break that occurred recently. I had plans to get all into it, I had my calendar all filled out and I was so prepped to make some great posts! Then, I don't know, I just woke up and lost all motivation. Maybe moving and starting all over on the friend making…

Wedding Misadventures

Life

I don't know if anyone remember, because I haven't really talked much about it, but I got engaged back in May and I haven't done much on the wedding front since.  I mean, a bunch of people I know are currently engaged and I feel like everyone else knows what they are planning on doing, while I'm over here furiously applying for jobs and eating old Thai food leftovers. We…

Four Things

Blogging, Life

I was tagged by Super Space Chick to do the Four Things tag, which shares four facts in a bunch of different categories. Let's begin! Four Places I've Lived: Erie - Born and raised. Otherwise known as the mistake on the lake (lovingly) by the locale. Pittsburgh - Moved here for college and then stayed for six years. I really did love Pittsburgh South Korea (for a month) - I mean, staying with Sarah for…

That time I tried to be a fashion blogger…

Blogging

When I first started out blogging I was dead set on being a fashion blogger. I loved looking at outfit posts and scribbled outfit ideas in my notebooks. This skirt with this top and these shoes. That dress with those tights and that cardigan. Although, then I realized that, at the time, I didn't have anyone to take pictures, nor did I have a tripod. I didn't really think the…
