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

Veggietales

Veggietales, one of the most enjoyable ways for kids to learn bits of the Bible – at least when I was a kid.  The Veggietales I’ve briefly seen on now doesn’t compare to the original, but I do understand that things change over time.

I was first introduced to Veggietales by one of my older cousins, as she really loved Continue reading

Upendi

My post was easy to figure out today because I woke up with this song stuck in my head for no apparent reason.  It’s funny actually because I haven’t watched The Lion King 2 in over a year!  For that song to suddenly be stuck in my head all morning is just weird!

I have heard that not a lot of people liked the sequel, but I love it just as much.  I thought the story-line was good, even if there were Continue reading

TV Shows I Miss

For the most part, TV Shows today don’t live up to the ones that my generation and those before me grew up with.  In fact, a lot of them are just terrible.  And any that are good are ending soon or have ended within the past year.  More and more I find myself missing the shows I watched growing up and as a teenager, and I wish that these shows were still on for today’s youth.

How to Eat a Cupcake [book review]

Funny, free-spirited Annie Quintana and sophisticated, ambitious Julia St. Clair come from two different worlds. Yet, as the daughter of the St. Clair’s housekeeper, Annie grew up in Julia’s San Francisco mansion and they forged a bond that only two little girls who know nothing of class differences and scholarships could—until a life-altering betrayal destroyed their friendship.

Reading Habits Tag

Happy Friday everyone!  I know that Friday isn’t always the end of the workweek for most people, myself included, but there is a sense of peace that comes with it being Friday.  I can’t tell you why that is, but I just know it’s there.

Today I’ll be doing the Reading Habits Tag that I found on Dreamland Book Blog as my “R” entry for April.  I kid you not, the first word I thought of for a post was ‘read’ so I’m going with it.  No overthinking today. Continue reading

Quotes I Love

It’s getting close to the end of the month, and the alphabet for the A to Z Challenge!  I’m excited that I’ve made it this far without missing a day of posting!  I have to say, going by the alphabet has given me some good specks of content and it’s helping me to be more observant in what I can use for blog topics.   Continue reading

By Your Side [book review]

Autumn finds herself locked inside the library for an entire weekend with no way out and unable to contact anyone.  She soon realizes she’s not alone; Dax Miller is also locked in with her.  She doesn’t know much about him, other than he did some time in juvie and that he’s a loner – not exactly someone she feels comfortable being locked in with.  She has to remind herself that it Continue reading

Old Post Love

I had a good topic for today’s post: writing about how I came up with the name of my blog – orangeowldiaries.  Then I realized I wrote about this a year and a half ago.  At least I realized this before I wrote an entirely new post on the same topic! Continue reading

Nem means No

I have another Hungarian word for y’all today because I literally cannot think of anything else for today’s letter.  This is one of the first two words I ever learned in this language – nem.

It’s pronounced just as it’s spelled, which makes it easy.  Unfortunately this isn’t the case for the rest of the Hungarian language, which is one of the reasons why Continue reading
