If you didn’t know, when Pottermore was first released I had a mild identity crisis. For years and years and YEARS I sorted myself (with the help of countless sorting quizzes) into Hufflepuff. Fast forward to September 2011 (OMG IT WAS THAT LONG AGO?!?!?) where young Anna sat at her computer and took the Pottermore Sorting Quiz for the first time and got sorted into… Read More

Bullet Journaling: a Beginning
Has anyone ever tried bullet journaling? One of my friends wants to try it, and as I’ve been looking into it, it seems rather interesting. I decided to troll through Pinterest in an effort to find out more about it.
BOY! Did I discover a lot about Bullet Journaling!
Feel free to follow this board to see what ideas I come up with and/or find!
First thing I noticed is: it’s basically an art form. Like seriously, some of the things people put into these journals are works of art! With pretty ribbons, and crazy amounts of organization! I’m really impressed with some things that I’ve seen. A lot of the organization of everything reminds me of what I’ve seen of Passion Planners which my friend Christa over at ObsessiveGirlFan swears by! So here’s my question, if I combine the two, and make a Passion Planner part of my bullet journaling, do I level up in my organization skills?
My next step, after seeing a VERY general idea (*salutes* General Idea!) of how to accomplish bullet journaling was to FIND a journal. Here’s the thing, I’m a bit picky sometimes when it comes to what I carry around with me on a daily basis. My Supernatural Purse was something I poured my heart into, I always have my phone, my iPad and a book in my purse, so if I was going to add some more stuff to it, I needed to figure out what I wanted added in my bad.
Then… I found this.
GUYS! LOOK AT HOW PRETTY IT IS!!!! It’s so pretty and I want it!
With Bullet Journaling, it appears the best journals for it are ones that are unlined or just dots (most commonly in a Leuchtturm 1917 notebook). This Zelda one is unlined….. so that means I should get it right? Chances are for my first foray into bullet journaling, I’ll most likely go for a very standard Leuchtturm 1917 notebook, just until I know what I’m looking for.
Have you ever tried bullet journaling? What has worked for you? What hasn’t?
Nerdify Your Workspace
In everyplace I’ve worked, I try my best to make my workspace my own (if I’m allowed). Recently, my company moved offices and now instead of sharing an office with my amazing girls I work with, I have my very own office. This is strange. I’ve never really had my own office and I don’t really know what to do with it.
So, I turned to the internet for guidance. I’ve found a couple of great ways to showcase your nerdiness in your workspace.
Art, Newb Cosplay and Osric Chau [Fan Xperience 2016]
This post is a LOT longer than I was anticipating…
Salt Lake Comic Con does two conventions a year. The main one usually takes place in September and is bigger and more intense. Whereas Fan Xperience usually takes place in the beginning of the year and more like “Comic Con Lite”. When people who have never been to a convention ask me which one to go to, I tell them FanX. It’s a bit less of an shock to the system.
This year during FanX was pretty light. I didn’t really plan anything and just kind of let things happen. Luckily, two of my very good friends were willing to pal around with me the whole time. There was two things I wanted to accomplish this con: Get through my photo-ops without pulling out my hair, and hit my 10,000 steps a day on my FitBit. Read More
