The Weekly Update: 3/6/16

It's March! Seriously though, I am going to be glad when the cold is gone. Of course it will just be replaced by rain, but what can you do. So remember how I complained last Sunday about the lawn mower in the mornings? Well this past week, either the person below or next to me (I was half asleep, I just know it was someone very nearby) decided 9 in the morning would be the perfect time to drill...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/28/16

I need to gripe about something, but first I have to explain something else. So gather round everyone, it's storytime! When I was in college I had this really great world civilizations professor. He was nice, he was passionate about his subject, and he genuinely wanted his students to succeed. It was one of the few classes I never read the textbook for because he gave us all the information we...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/21/16

Since I have no legitimate real life news or updates this week, instead I'm gonna tell you all about a weird dream I had. It wasn't weird in the conventional sense (well, I mean, it was, but my dreams are pretty much always weird, so that makes it normal), it was weird in that I experienced the dream from two different perspectives. I was with this small group of people, and we were escaping or...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/14/16

So... I suppose I'm obligated to say Happy Valentine's Day? Happy Single's Awareness Day? Happy Sunday? I can't say I'm celebrating---in fact, I can't say I've ever really done much for Valentine's Day, even times when I haven't been single---but I do always love the overabundance of the color red at this time of year :-P I finally made it to that doctor's appointment that was rescheduled. I...
 

The Weekly Update: 2/7/16

So, this has been a... week. On the downside, I had a doctor's appointment that got canceled the morning of, and rescheduling is causing me a bit of an issue. But on the upside, my bent window is finally fixed! But on the downside, the man did literally the same exact thing I tried, except it randomly worked for him which made me look like an idiot. But on the upside, I got a compliment at the...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/31/16

Wow, I have definitely gotten off to a great bookish/bloggy start this year! I finally started taking my blog more seriously and getting the hang of things this past month, and I'm happy about that. Normally I just talk about the week, but with this post falling exactly on January 31st, I couldn't resist doing a bit of an update about the whole month :-) So what are all these good things you ask?...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/24/16

I'm starting to feel the blogging pressure, guys. How do you people do this? I mean, my blog isn't even big, but making the time to write posts, respond to comments, comment on other blogs, post on numerous different social media sites, and read, all on top of eating and sleeping and running errands and working... and some of you people have spouses and even kids?!?! That's it, give me your...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/10/16

Happy one week into the new year! (I know that's not a thing, but I never know how to start blog posts, so I'm goin' with it.) Speaking of the new year though, is everyone sticking to their goals and resolutions? And has the year started off by treating you right? It's been chilly here, which is not a good thing because I hate the cold and have a low body temperature as it is. I actually had to...
 

The Weekly Update: 1/3/16 (aka New Year, New Name, New Bloggy Goodness!)

That was such an eloquent title, I know. But I couldn't think of one word to encompass EVERYTHING that I have to tell you guys! Ugh, where do I even start?! This is what I get for taking a week and a half off. But I was busy redesigning-ish my blog! (That's not even true. I did all this in the past three days. And I didn't even change that much.) But now you all get a whole rambly post about all...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (14)

Happy early Christmas to everyone who celebrates! The holiday really kind of snuck up on me this year. In fact, the whole month of December is going way too fast. January needs to slow down a bit. I have been enjoying reading some Christmas-related books though. I don't think I've ever done that before, which is odd considering how much I love all other things Christmas (movies, songs, etc.) But...
