Anyone ever tell you you’re overly enthusiastic? I openly admit it. I often refer to myself as someone who is overly enthusiastic about a lot of thing all at once. While some could see that as a bad thing, I choose to see it as a good thing.
When I see/read/watch/experience something I like, I tend to like to repeat it. Over. And over. and over again. This is a list of things I am “overly enthusiastic” about this week: (chances are, it’ll change next week)Read More
Happy April Everyone! Lets try setting some small goals for the month and (hopefully) keep them.
April is always a fun month for me because it is my and the husband’s anniversary (9 YEARS!!!). This year we’re doing a stay-cation and planning on sleeping in, staying up late, playing loads of video games, and getting our house in order a bit. This will be our first anniversary since we started our Ketogenic lifestyle so any treats we decide to have for our anniversary, will be an interesting surprise.
I’ve been staring at this blank entry space for an hour trying to figure out what kind of excuse I could use for falling away from my blog for the past few months. Then I realized. I don’t need one. Not that I’m not sorry for not checking in, I totally am! But I’m human. Sometimes things get in the way and we have to adjust our priorities and figure out a new way to do the same thing. I just wanted to take a second to play catch up!
I’m going to continue to make time and have fun with this blog. I have never wanted this blog to be one that I just write in because I have to. I love being able to come here and pour my heart out about my favorite nerdy things and know that I have a support system in my readers and friends to back me up.
Earlier today the official trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was released by Netflix. I watched it and was hit by one of the largest waves of nostalgia I’ve ever experienced. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself and tell me how you feel.

The past month has been a bit insane. Hence why there isn’t more posts on this for a while. But I’m hoping to turn this around and get back in the swing! To start that a little, I’m going to be a little selfish and talk being proud of yourself. I realize the post before this was the same thing, but sometimes, you just need to be proud of yourself. This month, I’m pretty proud of myself for completing all the races I’ve signed up for this year!
A few weeks ago, I sat in a panel at Salt Lake Comic Con with Tahmoh Penikett (if you thought I was done talking about SLCC after my last post, Nooooooooope!), who brought up his practices for remaining grounded. One of the things he brought up was his meditation practices. He spoke about how he works meditation into his daily routine regardless of what he’s doing that day and how it helps him keep his head and had helped him out of some dark places in his past.Read More
(The title “Self Love” sounds a lot dirtier than I mean for it to…)
Too frequently we get down on ourselves. We nit pick and poke at things about ourselves that only we see and tend to focus on the negative. To me, loving yourself is also one of the most difficult things to accomplish. It’s too easy for us to blind ourselves to what we’re good at or assume that it doesn’t matter that we’re good at that thing. These blinders, limit our capability to bloom in the areas we succeed. We don’t often get the chance to indulge in a little self love.
To combat this, on the third Sunday of every month (may turn into more often later), I’ll be posting about something that in the past month I have accomplished or improved about myself. This can be physically, intellectually, emotionally and even spiritually. This could even be something you did to treat yourself to something. Maybe a break down of an at home spa day, or even what you’ve done to let yourself decompress lately. Anything that allows you to show that it is perfectly okay to love yourself.
If you’d like to participate please do, feel free to post your link in my comments and use #SundaySelfLove on social media for me to share it!
Everyone deserves to feel good about their own accomplishments! And I personally would love to know what makes you feel good about yourself recently.
So go ahead, toot your own horn! 😉
(author note: literally every idea I had about showing self love sounded dirty. XD )
What is something you did recently that made you feel good about yourself?
It’s September, which means it’s time for Salt Lake Comic Con again! This year was a bit lower key for me in regards to photo-ops, autographs and even panels. This is the first year in a long time that I went primarily solo. This made for a lot of wandering the floor and a lot of complimenting people on their cosplays.
This past weekend I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic for a time when I used to write a lot more stories. Each year for the past few years I’ve participated in National Novel Writing Month, but haven’t completed it for a few years. The participating is what I enjoy about NaNo. I enjoy writing with a group of people who when I need a plot twist or a prompt I can simply ask the person next to me and they are more than willing to help. And most importantly I enjoy building a story from the ground up and seeing where the characters lead me (even if they refuse to listen to me sometimes).
I’ve been getting the story bug again (hopefully this means I’ll be participating in Flash Fic Wednesday again). I’ve set a goal to write a small 200-600 word short story twice a month, and I’ve even bought a book called “Complete The Story“.
This is a short story that I wrote about 4 years ago and posted on one of my very old blogs.I realized I never cross posted it here and felt like sharing it again out of pure nostalgia. It’s actually one of my favorite things I’ve ever written.
