NaNoWriMo

Summer is fast coming to an end and my favorite season is approaching. I have always loved Autumn, with the changing leaves, the crisp air and the return of wearing comfy sweaters. This Autumn I am planning try something I never thought I would – I’m going to participate in NaNoWriMo. For those of you …

Breaking Through the Weight Loss Barrier

So, not everyone who reads this blog would know this – I have talked about this on my YouTube channel before, but not a lot in this vlog. I’ve been struggling for years to lose weight. In the past 4-5 years I hit some of the highest weight I’ve ever weighed, finally topping at 196.5lbs …

Dragon Age Obsession

I discovered Dragon Age a bit late. Six years late as a matter-of-fact. It all began with Electronic Arts offering Dragon Age: Origins for free last November. I downloaded it to take advantage of the offer, but didn’t really think much about it. I was enjoying the newest World of Warcraft expansion and also still …

A Solution for Bullying

Bullying and what to do about it has been a hot topic for awhile now. There are lots of anti-bullying campaigns, trying to educate kids and parents about why it’s wrong to be a bully. I think in some cases we are getting a little extreme on the anti-bullying front, where in some cases a …

Sailor Moon Crystal: Why All the Complaints?

I’ve been seeing a lot of negativity around the new Sailor Moon Crystal series, primarily from Western Viewers and I really need to say my peace about this. I think a big part of this negativity is coming from people who literally grew up in the 1990s watching the original dubbed version of Sailor Moon, …

Sailor Moon: Helping Me Relive my Childhood Fantasies

I will openly admit that I am somewhat (ok completely) obsessed with Sailor Moon. Now that Sailor Moon Crystal is airing, I can’t get enough (and having one episode every 2 weeks is virtually *killing* me!). Why am I so obsessed though? It must seem weird that a middle-aged woman would be so obsessed with …

Obduction

This might not be news to everyone, but I only just found out that Cyan (creators of the Myst franchise back in the 90s) is developing a new adventure/puzzle game. I loved games like Myst so much back then – I was practically obsessed with the game. What I’ve seen so far about Obduction, it …

The Sims 4 Review

So I’ve been playing the Sims 4 for nearly a week now and I thought it was time I put down some of my thoughts of the new game. In general, I would say that I am enjoying playing the game so far. However there are a few things in the Sims 4 that are …

Depression

Depression is insidious. It saps one of strength, motivation, and the ability to really do much of anything. For some it can even be painful, physically as well as emotionally. Personally I have only had to deal with what’s known as “situational depression.” Every now and again I find myself in a situation, that either …
