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....
 

The Weekly Update: 11/20/16

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...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/13/16

Well, I'm pretty sure everyone knows the biggest news of the week. Frankly I can't even fathom how this is a real thing that has happened, but the fact is, it has happened. And what's really sad is that Trump hasn't even done anything yet; instead what I'm seeing and hearing about is the people in America turning on each other, attacking each other, threatening each other, etc. People from both...
 

The Weekly Update: 11/6/16

Well crap. I don't have any real life news this week lol. I stayed pretty busy, but not with anything that's worth sharing. I didn't even do anything for Halloween, so it's not like I even have that to talk about. I do, however, have some exciting (well, for me) bookish news, so I'll just skip straight to...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/30/16

So... I've got a few random/awesome/interesting things to share with you all this week! First of all, I don't even understand technology. Remember about a month I told you all that the tap-to-click on my keyboard stopped working? Well... it's working again! Don't ask me how or why because I have no clue. Though I might just turn it off since I got used to clicking without it, and my fingers are...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/23/16

Let's see, what news do I have this week... Well, I voted! (I had a mail-in ballot.) If ever there were an election when every vote counted, I think it'd be this one. If nothing else, my vote will at least cancel out the vote of one person in my family -_- I also made a new cat friend! I don't have my own cats to take cute photos of, but I do have...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/16/16

I did it! I actually did it! I saved my old email from the clutches of complete chaos and utter spamdom! See, I have this other email (not the one I use for blogging) that I used to use for everything. But over the years, it became completely overrun with newsletters and spam. You know how it is, you order something from a website one time, or you input your email for a contest, or you sign up...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/9/16

So I pretty much spent my week preparing for Hurricane Matthew (which thankfully didn't end up hitting us here) and then being exhausted from all the preparation, so I really don't have much to talk about. It's funny though how, as a kid, I never wanted anything serious to happen but always wanted the hurricanes to come close enough that school would be canceled (we don't have snow days here, we...
 

The Weekly Update: 10/2/16

Happy October, everyone! Not that I really have a special affinity for the month, but it seemed a fitting way to start the post. I thought I was finally going to have a rant-free Weekly Update, but alas, it just wasn't meant to be. Something always has to go wrong, Murphy's Law and whatnot. But you know what's great about having a blog and having people who actually read it, other than the...
