New Things and Bugs

So you know that sometimes when you get new things you get really excited about it? This is one of those. I also went outside where there were bugs. I did not like them.

I'll try to actually write again soon. I'm low on time and creativity because I am a human person with limits.

I Make Video(s?) Now

My cousin and I had talked about making videos to each other for a while now but we hadn't actually done anything. So yesterday I got my camera out that had about 6 minutes of battery life left and recorded what I could. I don't know that it will happen again any time soon because like with many things in my life, I get in to it and quickly decide I don't want to do that thing because effort is required. I know, I'm an inspiration to no one. Well, here it is...

January 7, 2017


In the spirit of trying something new, I found the Twitter account @_Wordbound, which challenges writers weekly and decided to try it out. Because why not? Sometimes it can be difficult to discover things to write about when all you do is come home from work and hang out with an almost 2 year old. So here we are.

What are my personal writing goals for 2017? I suppose writing more is about it, and to write more I think I will need to try new things. This could be anything from a new food or recipe, a new book, a new music genre, even a new workout. Maybe not the workout because exercise is terrible. Necessary for a healthy life but terrible.

The final part: what does #wordbound mean to you? It means putting some effort in to writing, which I have wanted to do for some time. Here is to new things in 2017!

Favorite Things- 2016

I kind of missed an entire year of favorite things. So, to sum up, here are my favorite things of 2016.

Bath/Body Products

One of my favs
I am obsessed with Lush bath bombs. They're on the expensive side (especially considering I can't actually fit my entire body in to my tiny bath) but they are wonderful and have made me love taking a bath.

I found a cheap foundation I really love Maybelline's Fit Me Matt & Poreless Foundation. Pretty much all I've had around me are drug stores and I'm just getting used to wearing makeup more frequently since High School, so this has been great.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is a beautiful, wonderful, sad book that made me cry ugly tears at the end and now I have a slight hatred for the author for making that happen.

I probably would have more if I hadn't spent the year reading textbooks and if I had free time I watched TV instead. Next year.


The Librarians is one of my favorite shows to watch. Which is surprising because it is fairly cheesy, but I love their adventures. The TV show is a spin off of The Librarian movies starring Noah Wyle. There is adventure, action, and I find them to be a lot of fun.

Stranger Things is a show pretty much everyone has talked about since it was added to Netflix. Because it is awesome. 1980's, nerdy kids, good music, and sci-fi are a lot of the things I love.

 I also have really liked watching Grand Tour, with the former hosts of Top Gear. I missed seeing them and was really excited when it was announced they were going to be on a new show. Sorry BBC, you effed up.

I haven't seen many movies this year, partially because they tore down my local movie theater to build a Meijer. And my rentals have been far and few between because, well... Netflix. But one new movie I did see this year was The Magnificent Seven. I love a good Western and it had been quite a while since I'd seen one. It's worth a watch.

Shameless Self-Promotion

Wait, how did that get here? But I truly do love my candles. Otherwise I wouldn't make them and use them every day. Really, it's an obsession. They're book/fandom/nerd themed. Occasionally I'll put up other stuff, like when I had dinosaur ornaments up for Christmas.

Other Stuff
I graduated with my Bachelor's degree! Cum Laude, bitches! The work to get my degree sucked but I'm glad I'm done with it.

I would probably have more but I have a child clinging to me and crying because I don't know why. I hope you had a good 2016 and will have a better 2017! Because the internet says 2016 was basically a dumpster fire of a year. I don't disagree that much, but some things were good at least!
