Thursday and Thrilled: Overly Enthusiastic

Thursday and Thrilled: Overly Enthusiastic

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

Gamer Tag: A Family That Games Together…

Gamer Tag: A Family That Games Together…

A Family that Games Together, Stays Together!

This tag has been floating around on a handful of blogs from Geek Girl x Bloggers. Most recently I saw it on Prima Geek, and could not resist the urge to do it.

I don’t talk a lot about my gaming habits, and that’s what this tag is for! So on with it!

I’m Back, Let’s Catch Up!

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.

So lets dust this thing off and give it a go!

Guys… I really miss Pushing Daisies sometimes.

Hosting a Gilmore Girls Watch-A-Thon

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.

Sunday Self-Love: October!

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!

feel free to save this and use it should you choose to participate! :)

Salt Lake Comic Con 2016

Salt Lake Comic Con 2016

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.

Thursday and Thrilled ` Stardew Valley

It’s been a while since I wrote about a video game so I thought today would be a good day to talk about the one I’ve been obsessed with. And I do mean, obsessed. Stardew Valley is the majority of the reason I have been so terrible at blogging lately. (That and we’re starting to look into remodeling our house… more on that later!)

If you’ve never heard of this game, don’t feel bad. The husband started playing it a few months ago and on a day where I was at a loss of something to do (gee, Anna… you could of WRITTEN!), I decided to give it a shot. This game is pretty awesome in it’s simplicity. If you’ve ever played Harvest Moon, its VERY similar to that.

“You’ve inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life. Can you learn to live off the land and turn these overgrown fields into a thriving home?”

Subscription Box ` Half Blood Prints Monthly | August

Subscription Box ` Half Blood Prints Monthly | August
** this post contains affiliate links

Right around the time that I purchased my first subscription to Gamer Girl Monthly, I was also looking for a subscription box that was different from what I have ordered before. I’ve subscribed to LootCrate, Fandom of the Month Club, and most recently Gamer Girl Monthly. I have loved each of them, but I wanted something a bit different.

Thankfully I stumbled across Half Blood Prints Monthly. If the title doesn’t make you smile, the art will.

For August, the theme was:

My first @gamergirlmonthly box arrived today! I’m stoked to open it!

I Ship It…. SERIES!! Go watch it!

“Hi my name is Ella and I watch too many shows, and read too many books, and have too many feelings. Which is why I write nerd rock songs, because that makes it better. Wanna hear some?”
(FYI: this line basically solidified my love for this series)

A little over a year ago, I wrote a post about the YouTube short film I Ship It by Yulin Kuang. This short film was one of the most fun things I watched last year, and I always wanted more. And while for the past few weeks I’ve been a bit absent from social media (and the internets in general), the other day I noticed this tweet from Yulin.
