April Misses and May Goals

So it’s time for my monthly wrap-up! Who knew it was going to be May so soon? It completely snuck up on me, and unfortunately I didn’t really meet all my goals for April as a result. To recap what I wanted to do, you can find the full post here. I was able to… Continue reading April Misses and May Goals

March: The Good, The Bad, And the Goals.

As part of my plan for getting more consistent around here, I’ve decided to make it my goal to post a wrap-up of each month - this way I can sort of look at each month in review, identify what I accomplished and what needs improvement. I feel like it’s also going to be nice… Continue reading March: The Good, The Bad, And the Goals.

So… Horizon Zero Dawn Feels Really Important.

So buckle up, birdies, because this post is going to be a little… all over the place. I don’t quite have my thoughts fully sorted on this matter, nor have I finished the game yet… but the bottom line is that Horizon Zero Dawn feels really important to me and I feel like I need… Continue reading So… Horizon Zero Dawn Feels Really Important.

Reassessing for 2017

So any of you who have been around for a while know that my blogging over the last two years has been… sporadic at best. I’ll have a month or two where I’m really consistent, and then go on radio silence for three. I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years trying… Continue reading Reassessing for 2017

For the Last Week…

If you follow my instagram you may have noticed that my last two photos have been a little… unseasonal looking? Considering I hail from Northeastern Pennsylvania and the place has been cold and grey and snowy for the last month or so, my photos definitely may have seemed a little out of place. Well, that’s… Continue reading For the Last Week…

2017 Bullet Journal Setup

I've done a detailed Bullet Journal Set-up post the last two years, but as I started to set up this year's, I realized that over the course of those two posts, I've really sort of settled into the system that works for me. So this year, I'm not really changing much up from last year,… Continue reading 2017 Bullet Journal Setup

My 2017 Goals

So it's January, and of course, that means it's resolution time. I've spent a lot of time these last two weeks really putting thought into what this year's goals should be, because I feel like I'm very much at a crossroads of sorts. I'm turning the big 3-0 this May, and there's a lot of… Continue reading My 2017 Goals

2016 New Years Resolution Postmortem

Another year, another set of goals not fully met. I know that sounds really pessimistic, but that’s just how these things go - I’m not a resolution maker who actually expects to fully complete each. Instead, I make resolutions with the goal of making progress, and using those goals, however unattainable, to improve myself or… Continue reading 2016 New Years Resolution Postmortem

Meet Seiglinde.

I’m a little late on this post, since we got her in June and she’s pretty much a full grown dog by now, but better late than never I suppose. So this is Seiglinde. Pronounced Zig-Lin-Deh. I call her Linde (Lindy) for short. My mom and I spent the entire hour and a half ride… Continue reading Meet Seiglinde.

What’s Up, Wednesday?

During the lull of the last few months I’ve been... … listening to: America’s Next Top Model. I can’t really say that I’ve been watching it, as it’s mostly just been on in the background as I work. I like seeing the results of the photo shoots, and there’s something about Tyra Banks that I… Continue reading What’s Up, Wednesday?
