The Weekly Update: 8-21-16

Time for more gymnastics updates! And let me tell you, the event finals were SO AWESOME. I won't go through everything or list every winner though, I'll just tell you my favorite parts. I've never seen a gymnastics competition as emotional as the men's floor finals. I couldn't even be upset that the US didn't medal because those guys who did (Max Whitlock of Great Britain, Diego Hypolito and...
 

The Weekly Update: 8/14/16

Forget "real life" today, let's talk Olympics! For anyone who hasn't been watching the gymnastics, I'll fill you in. There were two injuries last week, which was unfortunate. A French male gymnast fractured his leg in two places on vault during the trials and couldn't compete (which is just heartbreaking), and a British female gymnast fell on her head on floor during the trials but managed to do...
 

The Weekly Update: 8/7/16

Wow, I actually don't have anything "real life" to talk about this week. Oh! The Olympics have officially started, so that's something. I have to admit I didn't bother watching the opening ceremonies, but I'll definitely be watching the gymnastics :-) It's not often I actually get to watch gymnastics on TV, so the Olympics is a very exciting time for me lol. Other than that, as I said, nothing to...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/31/16

I didn't have the best week. I had more electronics trouble that I'm not even gonna get into because I'm so damn tired of talking about electronics trouble. Then I spent hours one day waiting for a package to come only to realize something went wrong when I ordered it and it was sent to where I used to live, so I had to drive over there to get it -_- I also had an awful headache one night, one of...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/24/16 + Kristen’s Theory of Electronics

Alright, guys, I'm going on a bit of a tangent today because I didn't want to make a whole post just for this considering it's not even remotely related to books and have instead decided to just include it in this post. So... I have a new theory about electronics. It seems like the worse I treat my electronics, the longer they last, so my theory is that you have to toughen them up when they're...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/17/16

Sorry if I took a little while to respond to comments or comment on anyone else's blog this week. It's been kind of a stressful, tiring, hot week. My AC stopped working properly on Monday and just started blowing room temperature air around my apartment instead of actually cooling anything. And since the room temperature ended up at about 85 degrees, well, you can imagine how useful that was. I...
 

The Weekly Update: 7/10/16

Guess what, everyone... My blog is a year old! Yay, happy blogiversary to me :-) But I'll talk a bit more about that below. I do have a few real life things to mention. First of all, I've still been drinking kombucha since it's good for me, even if it's not giving me the energy boost I originally thought it was, and I have a word of advice: Never---I mean NEVER---try blue-green algae kombucha....
 

The Weekly Update: 7/3/16

-_- Do you see that face? That is my face right now. Can you guess why? Can anybody guess why? MY LAPTOP IS STILL BROKEN. Three times. THREE TIMES I sent it in already, and it's still doing the exact same thing. And I say with complete honesty that I do not see how it could be anything I did since I didn't even get the chance to use it the other times, and this time all I've used it for is a bit...
 

The Weekly Update: 6/26/16

Well, this hasn't quite been my best week. I got rid of headache problems I had a year or two ago and have since only taken Tylenol a handful of times, but this week I had to take it twice :-/ One of the times was because I tried a different air filter for my AC, and that turned out to be a huge mistake. I have screwy sinuses, and it dried out the air too much or something, and my whole face and...
