The end of the year is literally right around the corner and what a year it's been! Most people would say, "Wow, this year flew right by!" Well, I'm not. This year was actually a long one for me. Not necessarily in a bad way, though there were a few parts I wish hadn't happened, … Continue reading 2014 In Review
Well folks, I think it's about time that I share my first ever "favorites" post. Some people do this by the month, but seeing as it's the end of the year, I'm just lumping it all together in a "favorites of the year" post. I've watched quite a few new shows and movies, read some interesting … Continue reading 2014 Favorites
This is a toughie, because winter is my least favorite season. It's messy, cold and there's not much to do. But enough with the pessimistic view, I'm trying to grow past that and learn to find the good things in life and people. So let's start, shall we? ... ... Okay, I finally thought of … Continue reading 7 Things I Love About Winter
It's not an uncommon thing for one's computer to die. In fact, it's happened to me several times. Back in 2009 my MacBook (2007 model) crashed for an unknown reason and luckily, my cousin was able to fix it with no problems. Then in 2013, it died for good as I did not have money … Continue reading Death of a Computer
Technology is always changing. Every year, or every other year, there's a new iPhone or Samsung Galaxy for sale. Our applications are always updating and so is our software. Change can be hard, especially when a software update is as big as when iOS 7 came out. Remember the fuss people made over that one? … Continue reading Concerns About iOS 8 & OS X Yosemite
This past August when I went camping with my dad, step-mom and step-siblings I happened to run into a friend of mine from the BMX track I work with each summer. It was surprising because in all the years I've gone camping I have never ran into someone I knew there before nor did I … Continue reading Backwoods BMX
I find it funny that often times we have to look over things again in order to catch mistakes or other things we did not notice the first time, particularly when it comes to reading and watching movies. Many times I have read a book for a second (or third) time and caught something that … Continue reading With Observant Eyes
You know the saying... America runs on Dunkin'! Or, on caffeine anyway. Whatever you drink or wherever you drink it from, it's still caffeine. Unless you're one of those people who orders decaf, not that there's anything wrong with it... freaks. (Kidding!) But despite whether the beverage is caffeinated or not, it's still either coffee … Continue reading Coffee or Tea?
Okay, it's not exactly that hard to make. You throw in some nuts, some candies and some dried fruit and there you have it... trail mix. But let's face it, as humans who are always on the go we don't have time to make our own trail mix so we go out and buy little … Continue reading DIY Trail Mix [foodie friday]
Have you ever pondered the 'what ifs?' in life? "What if I went to a four year university first instead of a community college?" "What if I had siblings?" "What if I had remained friends with that person?" "What if I had been involved in youth group as a teenager?" "What if I knew back then … Continue reading What If…?
A few weeks ago I made brownies on a whim when my mom said she wanted them. I've never baked from scratch, so I obviously used a mix and it was the Chocolate Fudge Pillsbury mix. Let me say, they were amazing! Just last weekend, my mom had the urge to bake so once again … Continue reading Bananas for Brownies! [foodie friday]
I love this post from Young & Twenty because she makes great point. How many conversations do we have throughout the week that are nothing more than, "Hey, what's up?" to which we reply, "Not much, you?" I hate to admit that I've had plenty of these empty conversations. As humans, we're meant to form … Continue reading empty words. – reblog from Young & Twenty
Earlier this semester I was teamed up with two classmates for our first assignment in our video production class and as it turns out, they would be my partners for the rest of the projects we had to do this semester. We all mesh together perfectly and we don't have to fight for a certain … Continue reading Working In a Group
