2016 has been a hell of a year. And by that I mean it’s been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. I started January 2016 off with a strain to my IT band and I finished it off with plantar fasciitis. Despite that, I still managed to complete four half marathons and two… Continue reading Back to Me Being Me – Welcome 2017
I've been blessed (and cursed?) to have been surrounded by great love for as long as I can remember. It's both encouraging and maddening to see so many lasting examples of great romantic relationships. I've had my share of trials and been a part of some truly ugly stories, yet through it all, I have… Continue reading Surrounded By Real Love
Exciting news for my little blog here. Sarah from Say Hello was kind enough to nominate me for a Liebster Award. Sarah has a great mix of posts on her blog and it seems to me we have a lot in common, so I’m honored to be nominated by her. Check out her some of… Continue reading The Liebster Award – Where Blogs Get Recognized

I spent the last day of 2014 reflecting on a lot of the things that happened in 2014, like San Diego Comic Con, the RT Convention in New Orleans, Star Wars Day at the Giants, the Avengers Race Weekend in Disneyland, a relaxing and beautiful trip to Monterey, new friends, a new job, and so… Continue reading Another Year of Hope and More Art Too – Goals for 2015
It’s Friday. That means another edition of Five Fandom Friday from geeky bloggers all over thanks to the genius of Super Space Chick and The Nerdy Girlie. Today’s topic: New Year’s Blogging Resolutions. I make resolutions every year (some more successful than others), but I don’t think I’ve ever made any specific blogging resolutions (well… Continue reading Five Fandom Friday – New Year’s Blogging Resolutions
This quote from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) is more than relevant in today's day and age. Remember to experience life in the moment and not through the view of your phone/camera. There are amazing things to be seen and experienced all around us every single day.
I’m trying something new. The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick had an idea to link a bunch of us female geeky bloggers together. Fridays are now Five Fandom Fridays and there are topics chosen for each Friday that serve as the prompt. I’m getting involved for several (five?) reasons: It’s a pre-chosen topic that… Continue reading 5 Fandom Friday – Gateway Fandoms That Made Me Who I Am Today
The New Year begins and with it more goals and pledges and resolution for just about everyone. I’m no different. There is a reason for the brightness and optimism as the calendar year changes. The hope for a fresh start and improved situations is powerful. While I agree with many ‘experts’ that say you shouldn’t… Continue reading Hope, Dreams, and Optimism in a New Year (2014 to be specific)
Last year brought death, cancer, car accidents, and so much more to me, my family, and my friends. I know far too many people for which 2013 was an unusually unlucky banner year. I want to make the comment that things can’t be worse in 2014, but I know that’s false logic. Things can always… Continue reading Goodbye 2013. And good riddance.
