#Weekend Coffee Share: I voted!!

Hello Coffee Share peeps! This weekend you’ll find me in much better spirits! I’m still insanely busy, but I’ve made some decisions that I think will help me to be more balanced as I move forward.

One of those decisions was to be more decisive.

And thus, I voted this weekend! Continue reading “#Weekend Coffee Share: I voted!!”

Weekend Coffee Share: Is it really over?

This weekend, if we were sharing coffee, it would be the blonde roast that was a gift from my student, and we’d be curled up in our PJ’s. A kind of slumber party version of the Weekend Coffee Share. And a short post at that.

Not much has happened over the last couple of weeks.

#DSFWeeklyRewind: A new year begins.

Well hello there, Weekly Rewinders! I’m running a little late this weekend. Today has been an interesting day, so as we rewind, we might as well work our way backwards.

Also, as part of my new outlook for this blog (and, well, this whole year, actually) I’ve made a playlist. I tried to keep it really positive and relatively new. Anything that is older is something that I absolutely love, or makes me feel particularly happy or at peace.

Those are the emotional goals for this year: happy and at peace. The rest of the rewind follows the playlist below. It’s not in any particular order, so hit shuffle and enjoy!

A New Car!!

I’ve never been one to really put too much stock in the whole “New Year, New You” movement. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I believe whole-heartedly in the ideas of renewal and growth and change, but at your core, you are who you are. That’s the reason why expecting partners to change drastically usually ends in heartbreak.

But, and it’s a pretty big but at the moment, it seems that my new year is forcing me to embrace change!

October 2015 Recap

A lot has happened since my last recap, way back in the beginning of August! I’d hurt my ankle in the month of July, I was unsure of where I was going to live, I didn’t know where I stood with just about anything. Now, with the beginning of November (and NaNoWriMo), I feel much more stable in most aspects of my life.

There are exceptions of course.

As always, the Boy is one of them.  Continue reading “October 2015 Recap”

It’s About Time! (I finally saw Ant-Man!)

Per request, I finally saw the Ant-Man movie and am thus doing a review. I also have to admit that as an avid watcher of most things Marvel, I was excited about this one, but not so much as I was about Avengers: Age of Ultron or some of the other parts of the franchise. I mean, come on! A guy who can shrink to the size of an ant? How can that be cool?

I’m glad to say I was pleasantly surprised with this one. My expectations were low, and while that’s not why I hadn’t gotten around to watching it, it is partly why I wasn’t in a hurry. I’m glad that a few of my friends have asked where my review was, and even more glad that a certain friend of mine told me that she found this one worthy of being part of her very selective personal collection! It was mainly because of her recommendation that I pushed myself to see this one (wore that godforsaken boot today… not fun).

But it was a good call! I would have been really disappointed if I’d missed seeing it in the theater. And in 3D to boot!

As always, here’s my warning: From this point forward there will probably, most definitely be Spoilers! Continue reading “It’s About Time! (I finally saw Ant-Man!)”
