My last post was all about the startup of my new bullet journal. I tend to go through it at least once a day to see if there’s anything I can add or just to mark off some of the items I’m completing on my lists. That’s always the fun part of planners – checking off Continue reading
After months of contemplation and weeks of research, I have finally joined the bullet journaling community! I have seen them on Instagram for about a year now, but never gave them much thought until earlier this year when I was looking for a planner. I had decided against it back in January because I thought Continue reading
I’m just going to leave this video right here.
Susan Cain is the author of the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. I haven’t read this book yet, but it’s on my list (in fact, it’s on my shelf). My best friend texted me the link to this video and I highly encourage you to watch it if you can spare 20 minutes (trust me, it goes by fast).
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
May… where did you go?
Though a lot of days felt like they were the longest day ever, this month went by very quickly. I celebrated my 26th birthday, got signed up for my own health insurance, and got accepted into graduate school. It’s been quite a busy month. Continue reading
I wrote this letter to my Nanni two years ago, when it had been eight years since she passed away. Today marks ten years since she took her spot in Heaven.
It’s weird how it seems like it hasn’t been that long, but at the same time it feels like it’s been Continue reading
It’s happening everyone! I’m going back! Continue reading
I consider my weekend to be Sunday and Monday, as those are my two days off from work. So yes, I’m one of those people that go, “I work Saturdays,” when people are saying, “Thank God it’s Friday!” Thankfully I only work a few hours on Saturdays and I’m out by three… so I still have some daylight to enjoy (in the summer anyway).
This weekend I finally got together with my best friend. It’s been a few months since we’ve seen each other, and since my birthday was earlier this month, we wanted to get together. We met up at a shopping plaza, had lunch, and spent six hours browsing around; though most of it was in Continue reading
I didn’t do my ‘What’s Happening Wednesday’ post last month due to the A to Z Challenge. I meant to, but I just completely forgot because of my focus on the challenge. Oh well. I don’t think it was missed too much, but I would like to keep doing this post every month, and hopefully maybe some of my fellow bloggers will join me!
So without any further delay, here’s what I’ve been up to!
I’ve been a Yankees fan for as long as I can remember, and I’m talking back since elementary school. That long. Though I don’t really watch baseball as much since becoming a football fan, I still love my Yankees. There’s one problem though… all my Yankees retired.
It’s something that every sports fan has to deal with, having favorite players leaving the team. I don’t think I’ll ever love any Yankees players as much as the late 90’s-00’s team – they were the all-stars. And for me, Derek Jeter topped them all. Continue reading
Each year I usually like to do a mini-photo session for new pictures of myself that look like they might have been professionally done. This started back in November of 2012 when I got my first DSLR camera (a Canon Rebel t3) and froze my butt off at the ballpark Continue reading
My birthday was last week, as you know from my Birthday Tag post, and it was a good one. This year I got a good amount of birthday money (and gift cards) and boy, did I treat myself! Mostly to books. Overall, I bought eight books with my birthday money, and at good deals too. Continue reading
I notice a common post among book bloggers, which is a monthly To-Be-Read (TBR) list of books they plan to read that month. I’ve been wanting to start doing this myself, but I can’t for one simple reason – I can’t stick to a reading plan.
I’m sure other book bloggers have the same problem. We don’t end up sticking to our list because we find out about new books and want to read those instead, or we Continue reading
Simon Connolly’s world is turned upside-down when he gets a text saying that shots have been fired at the high school his children, Jake and Laney, attend. Laney returns to her parents, but Jake is nowhere to be found. Then the news breaks that Jake may have had something to do with the shooting. Simon takes it upon himself to find his son, because no one else seems to care to find him, and figure out why this happened. Continue reading
