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
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?”
It’s Thursday and Thrilled time, and boy am I thrilled for some stuff this week! I’ve been in a suuuuper crafty mood lately. Last weekend was my Trekkie Trek and brunch for my local chapter of Geek Girl Brunch. As I did not want to run in costume I came up with a few small things to honor the occasion:
A tank top that I carved the Starfleet Insignia into and made into a stamp.
And some hair clips a fellow officer and I glued together to give to the brunchettes and interested brunchettes. I am so proud of them and the fact that they were a huge hit! Now, I’m itching for my next craft project.Read More
I’m slowly getting back in the habit of blogging on a regular basis. I find at the beginning of the week, I have a harder time getting motivation, but once Wednesday and Thursday hit, I usually do a lot better.
Here are some things I’m thrilled about this week! Read More
February has been a hard month for me. After getting some pretty emotional news at the beginning of the month it’s thrown me into a terrible funk. I’ve been working through this news and have finally started feeling more like myself. The funk is finally on it’s way out of my system and as such it is time to catch up with you!
It’s only the second Thursday of the year and I’m already behind in these! Siiiiiiiigh! The past few weeks have been a weird range of emotions, but as of this week I’ve been in a pretty awesome mood all week. Spending my days with my awesome company and my evenings watching shows with my husband that make us laugh so hard I feel like I had done a million crunches. Finally getting out of my weird holiday funk.
With all of that, this is what I’m thrilled about this week
The past couple weeks have been a blur of running, fandoms, photo ops, and fast food. I have no one to blame but myself. This saturday marks the final event that I’ve had planned for the past few months and I can finally start to relax.
I’m pretty excited to start winding down in the fall and winter months, starting with these few things:
I’m sorry I’ve been a little MIA this week. I blame my excitement for Salt Lake Comic Con starting TODAY!
This is Salt Lake Comic Con’s Third Year and has been growing like crazy each year. This will be my second time attending and I’m VERY excited. This con has had its fair share of growing pains (and then some), but I feel that each year they are trying to get things better and better.
This year I don’t think I’ll be doing any cosplay. It’s going to be a year of photo-ops for me and I don’t want to be in Cosplay for my pictures (I know. It’s a bit lame).
Though just because I won’t be dressing up, doesn’t mean I don’t want some pointers on what to do for Cosplay.Read More
