Announcement: Introducing the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books with Disability Masterlist!

As some of you may know, for a while now I've been searching for sci-fi/fantasy books with physically disabled and chronically ill characters. And during that time, I kept trying to figure out something I could do with my blog to help bring awareness to disabilities and the books that include them in order to spread more understanding. And this was what I came up with! So I am happy to introduce...

My tennis elbow is back :-/ I knew this would be an ongoing battle. I know I'm not good at resting injuries, but I really thought I had been doing better with resting this one than with pretty much any injury I've ever had in the past. *sigh* In better news, I completely forgot to buy peppermint oil when I went shopping -_- but I think the cold weather finally got rid of the last of the ant...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/8/16

It has been a fairly uneventful week for me. I'm just kind of really extra tired because of all the construction noises -_- I'm finally going to buy myself some peppermint oil to use for the ant problem today though (if I remember). I haven't seen any lately, so they might be gone, but I was wrong about that once before, so I'll use the peppermint oil just to be sure since apparently they don't...

Happy New Year, everyone! Does anyone else think it's kind of awesome that the first day of the new year falls on a Sunday? I still consider Sundays to be the start of the week (even though it seems that Monday has become the new start of the week for most people for some reason), so I think it's cool. But anyway... I have to admit that my year isn't off to a very good start. I still have tennis...

Merry Christmas, everyone :-) Or, if you don't celebrate or are not celebrating for any reason, happy Sunday :-) I know it's Christmas, but I still wanted to post because I love this blogging community and still wanted to say hi to everyone. I will keep it brief though since most of you are probably busy. So first, just for funzies, I will share with you all one of my favorite Family Guy scenes...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/18/16

I have one word for you this week: ants. Here's three more words: really stupid ants. Because here's the thing, I keep my apartment clean for this exact reason. I don't want to deal with bugs. And because there's no food sitting around, there's not even a trail of ants I can spray or anything normal like that. Instead it's just a bunch ants aimlessly wandering around the middle of my living room,...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/11/16

Even though I like to complain about my arguing neighbors, noisy construction, and electronic woes a lot, I try to keep my blog a fairly positive, happy place, but *sigh* I don't feel very positive right now. I've been resting my wrist. Some days I haven't even done anything other than eat, shower, and read. The bad news is, not only does my right wrist still hurt, the left one, and my forearms,...
 

The Weekly Update: 12/4/16

So... I might have carpal tunnel in my right wrist from using the computer too much. Or maybe tendonitis. Or some other joint-related thing? Whatever it is, it's something. And this is a problem, to say the least, because not only do I need to use the computer to blog (which, along with reading, keeps me sane), I also need it in order to work. So I'm really hoping that whatever it is will just...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/27/16

So did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? And did anyone go out on Black Friday? I take that back, if you did you probably won't be able to answer my question since you've probably been trampled and lost some fingers and therefore cannot type (unless you use your nose or elbow, but that's harder than it sounds). I've actually still not been feeling well. I'm just so overexhausted and run down....

I am 100% convinced my old laptop is sentient. The robot uprising is starting, guys. No, but really, here's the deal. When I first got my grandma's old computer hooked up and turned it on to give it a try, my laptop went nuts and started making the worst noises it's ever made, as if it got jealous I was using another computer and threw a tantrum. My grandma's computer didn't really work out, so I...
