Well, that’s a roundabout way to say “read more”

I’ve been trying really hard to get back in touch with my creative side. I really miss art and crafts and having an imagination that reaches beyond imagining myself either vastly wealthy or living in a dumpster. They say to fake it until you make it, so I’m trying to fake myself into believing I’m still an artistic person.

I’m just a bit starved for ideas, at the moment. And motivation, if I’m honest. Time is a precious commodity and I can’t spare too much on frivolous things likeĀ enjoyment.

Writer’s block is a nightmare. Writing is the only creative thing I really have time for, because I can do it literally anywhere I have access to paper and a writing implement. Which is everywhere, because I carry a notebook and pen with me. But nothing comes.

Don’t you just hate that?

I don’t even know what to blog about. I seriously considered doing another diet post, because I don’t know what else to say (that isn’t just… horribly depressing). That’s how deep this writer’s block is going.

On the bright side, with all that time spent not creating things myself, I’ve been reading things other people have created! So, here are a couple books you should pick up, if you like good stories. Continue reading “Well, that’s a roundabout way to say “read more””

Watch-This Wednesday: Creepshows

It’s Halloween! And while this marks the end of Blogtober, it also marks a time to celebrate by getting our terror on! Whoo!

I’m sure some of you have epic plans for the evening; going out, spending time with actual living(-dead) people. But, if you’re like me, you’ll probably spend a good chunk of the night at home.

Here are some creepy suggestions to make the most of this spookiest day of the year. Continue reading “Watch-This Wednesday: Creepshows”

Blogtober 2018, Friday Free-For-All

Friday Free-For-All: Follow Friday

Back when I first started prepping for Blogtober, when Saturdays were supposed to be for fashion posts, I initially intended for the last Friday Free-For-All to be a kind of diary post of what I’d been up to this month. Then I nixed the fashion posts in favor of diary posts and had to come up with something else to do for this last Friday!

I didn’t have time to do another craft post or anything like that. I thought about posting some photography, but I’m actually planning to post my photography on a different site (details to come when I’m back from my NaNoWriMo hiatus).

What to do, what to do?

How about spreading a little love, huh? I have had so much support over the last couple months and I’m so grateful.

Last time I did a blog recs post was back in January. You can check that out here (and be sure to follow all those wonderful folks (the one’s who haven’t deleted or stopped posting, anyway–I’m so sad, some of my favorite people have gone inactive). People with real lives to take care of aside, there are still incredible active bloggers on that list and you should go give them some love!

But, my list of blogger friends has grown this year and I think it’s time to do another recommendation (especially since even last time that was hardly every one I could recommend to you). So, this Friday Free-For-All is a Follow Friday! Whoo! Continue reading “Friday Free-For-All: Follow Friday”

Watch-This Wednesday: Movies

I’ve done TV, YouTube, cartoons. But what about some full-length feature film stuff? What do I recommend to pop in the Blu-Ray player on Friday night and watch with a big bowl of popcorn and a warm blanket?

Here are my favorite movies I watch over and over (and you should, too). Continue reading “Watch-This Wednesday: Movies”

Watch-This Wednesday: Cartoons

Like most millennials, I spend a lot of time trying to relive my childhood instead of thinking about my bleak present and bleaker future. These days, it’s easy to pretend I’m still a kid with so many great cartoons.

Here are some of my animated TV faves. Continue reading “Watch-This Wednesday: Cartoons”

Friday Faves: Reading!

I used to read a lot when I was younger. Then I got to college and I only had time to read school-related things and that sucked! Now, I’m trying to read more for me and my enjoyment, instead of turning into one of those people who hates reading because they associate it with grades and stress.

So, here are a few of my favorite pieces of recreational reading material. Continue reading “Friday Faves: Reading!”
