We Love a Good Comeback

Hiii

It's been a while. 

This blog became more of a mishmash of other people's blogs and what would "do well" engagement-wise instead of what I wanted to do. Make an online journal where I share some of my life with strangers on the internet. 

So, I'm gonna change it a little bit. There won't be as many "series" type posts but I want to be able to share more of my personal life and stuff that interests me. So let's see how it goes.


In the meantime, let me update you. 

I got a cat!


His name is Leo and he is the most precious boy. At the moment he is staring at my WoW poster and hiding behind my monitor. He's truly made my life so much better.

I also started taking proper meds and feel SO GOOD. S/O to my doc for keeping me supplied and checking in during this pandemic.

Also, workwise, I got a promotion. I'm now a supervisor at my job and it's been a wild time. It's tough but I look back at the posts where I was searching for a job or working at a job I hated and it's amazing to see that time pass.

Life is a trip. 

But, alas, I must head on out now. I'm reading a really good book and I want to finish it before I start my shift today. So, I'll see you around the internet until my next post.

My Favorite...Easter Candy



It's Friday which means another My Favorite post!

If this is your first My Favorite post, it's a prompt ran by my favorite person ever, Becca where you  talk about your favorite thing related to the prompt each week. This week the prompt is favorite Easter candies!

I don't really do a big thing for Easter since I got older but I do enjoy some Easter candies. My absolute favorites probably have to be Whopper Robin's Eggs. 


I'm a sucker for Whoppers in general because they are little balls of joy, but the Easter ones are even more adorable! They are pastel little eggs and they are so dang cute! 

Since this is a short post, I took inspo from Becca's post and also decided to talk about Easter candies I dislike! While I do have a few that I just dislike (jellybeans, I'm looking at you) I have to be blunt.

PEEPS.

ARE.

THE.

WORST.


They take the greatness of marshmallows and make them GROSS! I will die on this hill. Don't @ me. 

 Other than that, I think I'm decently okay with other Easter candies. I mean it's candy, what's not to love. 

That's all for this week! If you decide to join in on this, be sure to leave your link down below!

ABC Challenge Tag!

 

 

Rules


  1. The post was created by Stuart of Something to Stu Over.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger that challenged you.
  3. Display the challenge photo or create your own.
  4. Link back to this post so I can read yours.
  5. Create one post or multiple posts, using a word that starts with each letter of the alphabet and share your thoughts on the word you chose and how it can be applied to our lives.
  6. Be creative and have fun!


A is for...ANIME!


via GIPHY

I'm a huge anime nerd so I definitely had to add this on here. My favorites are more shojou anime like K-On or anything super cute like Sailor Moon!



B is for...Books!

If you've read any of this blog, you probably know how much I love books, bookish things, and being a bookworm!



C is for... Cereal!

I'm kind of obsessed with cereal. Idk why I just love it. It's like the perfect meal.





D is for... D.VA!

I'm a huge D.Va fangirl, even basing my entire computer build and battlestation area around her and her aesthetic! Also, my most prized possesion besides my PC is probably my D.Va autograph from Charlet Chung!



E is for... Eyeshadow!

I'm a huge makeup junkie but my two ultimate vices are lipstick and eyeshadow.  I kind of have an obsession.



F is for... Flamin' Hot Cheetos products!


via GIPHY
Hello permanently stained red fingers! Also I love them so much that it's permanently on my blog header!



G is for... GLITTER!



H is for... Harry Potter!

I've been a massive HP fan since I was a kid and it honestly shaped my life so darn much that I obviously had to include it!



I is for... Ice Cream!

I LOVE ice cream. It's just one of the most perfect desserts. It's comforting, cold, aesthetically pleasing, and there are so many flavors. I'm pretty sure it single-handedly was the cause of my "freshman 15" in college since I spent most nights with a pint of peanut butter cup ice cream and my laptop.



J is for... Jupiter!

via GIPHY

Clearly the best Sailor Scout.



K is for... Kirby Krackle!

 


If you haven't listened to Kirby Krackle, you are missing out on some awesome nerdy jams! Here's one of my favorites!




L is for... Lipstick!

In high school it was kind of my brand to wear bright red lipstick and I am all about crazy colors, trying different brands, and expressing myself through my lip color. I love it so much, I needed a whole separate makeup case just for my lipsticks!



M is for... Madonna!

Catch me drunk-singing Madonna every time I go out. I think I also dressed up as her for Halloween about 5 times because 80's Madge is best.




N is for... Nick Jonas!

via GIPHY




O is for... Orange!

This is one of my absolute favorite colors besides pink and apparently that's kind of weird so I thought I would mention it here. I just think the color is so happy and yet relaxing and it's just great!



P is for... PIE!


via GIPHY
Love me some pie.



Q is for...Quidditch!

The only sport I understand!



R is for... Rock 'n' Roll!

Rock music, specifically classic rock and the history of it has always been one of my favorite subjects and things and I can't get enough.



S is for... Star Trek!

via GIPHY

I'm a huge Trek nerd so I had to include this on the list!




T is for... Texas!

via GIPHY

Texas has it's faults but it is like it's own country and damn, if I ain't in love with my state.



U is for... Universe!

I'm a huge space geek and I did stretch this a bit but I had to include it!




V is for... Vanellope von Schweetz!


via GIPHY


W is for... Wonder Woman!



X is for... Xbox!

One of my most prized posessions has to be my Xbox One X. I may spend a lot of time on my PC but at my heart I am a console gamer.




Y is for... Yuri!

Not that kind of yuri, but instead Yuri from Doki Doki Literature Club! She is best girl, fight me about it.



Z is for... Zone-Tan!

We'll just leave it at that...


That's my ABCS! Feel free to join in on this challenge! It was so much fun and it was actually pretty challenging!

My Favorite...Thing About Spring


I'm back with another My Favorite post! 

It's been a hot minute since we've done one of these posts and I really want to get back into them because not only are they super fun, they also help out my friend Becca who hosts these! So if you decide to join these posts, make sure to check her blog out for the prompts every week!

This week's prompt is my favorite thing about spring! I'm a person who can never decide what season is their favorite (although I lean a bit closer to winter) so I love each season for what it brings.

For me springtime is the best time to pull out a cute contemporary and head outside for a long read. I also am a huge fan of those April showers and May flowers!


via GIPHY

Enjoying the scenery and curling up with a book outside before mosquitoes begin to come out sounds perfect to me!

What is your favorite thing about springtime? Let's chat about it!
