What’s Happening Wednesday {Currently}

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!

Retiring Number 2

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

Why I Don’t Do a Monthly TBR Post

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

Finding Jake [book review]

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

It’s My Birthday Tag

Hey, hey!  It’s my birthday!  As of today (at 4:02pm) I am twenty-six years old.

oh. my. gosh.

I’m now officially closer to thirty than twenty… and this saddens me.  I honestly don’t feel 26 in any way, shape, or form.  I mean, when I see the way some teens and kids act, then yes, I feel my age, but in my head, I’m still in disbelief.  I guess the good thing is people still think I look 18-19 years old, so I have that going for me.

Zora – My Favorite SWAC Character

It seems so long ago that I was obsessed with the Disney show, Sonny With a Chance.  If you don’t know it, then I should tell you that it’s one of the major Disney projects that Demi Lovato worked on (alongside the Camp Rock movies).  And I will be frank, I’m not a Demi Lovato fan at all.  Yes, I like a few of her songs, but she’s by no means one of my favorite artists.

I came about watching Sonny With A Chance by accident (meaning that there was nothing else on and I found parts of the show funny).  But what really caught me was the Continue reading

Recent Reads [April 2017]

April has been a weird month for reading.  At first, I was on a roll and suddenly around the last week and a half of the month, I just went into a slump.  I was able to read one more book during my slump, but the last few days I haven’t read at all.  I’ve just been antagonizing over what book to read next.

Because of the slump that hit, I only read four books, which I know is about my average, but Continue reading

Yes, I Read Young Adult Books

I know that there really are no “age restrictions” when it comes to reading, but that it’s more of a social concept of what kinds of books you should read as you get older.  With my twenty-sixth birthday coming up in just a few days, I’m considered to be an adult, though really I’m still learning my way.

Still, adults (who are actually adults) who are a few generations ahead of myself will probably Continue reading

Ways to Be Wicked [song review]

At long last the first release from the Disney Descendants 2 soundtrack has been released!  Well, it was released on April 14th, but still.  It’s within the first month and I’ve had the song on repeat  since I bought it last week.  It’s very catchy!

Although I’m enjoying the song a lot, I sincerely doubt it will be the best song of the upcoming movie.  But it has me excited to see what is going to happen.   Continue reading
