May Wrap-up and June Goals

Well, hot damned. It’s June. Already. I find myself saying that a lot these days. “Already!?” “It’s summer already!?” “It’s [insert month] already!?” And the busier I am from day to day, the more I seem to be saying it. And May was a VERY busy month. It always is. From wrapping up and ending… Continue reading May Wrap-up and June Goals

The One Where Magpie Turns 30.

So it’s May. Can we all agree to not know how this happened? Because I really seriously feel like the last two months somehow flew by in the span of a week. I’m not sure how. But I swear it did. Because it’s May. More than halfway through May, actually. And I’m super-duper not ready… Continue reading The One Where Magpie Turns 30.

The One Where Magpie Hates Healthy Eating

So one of my biggest goals for this month is a total ban on take-out and fast food. Over the last couple years as I’ve added job after job, my eating habits have basically found themselves going right down the toilet. Whatever was quick, easy, and convenient was what was on the menu. I drive… Continue reading The One Where Magpie Hates Healthy Eating

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
