M.I.A. & Reader Appreciation

Hello all!

I feel like I’ve been doing a LOT of this, being M.I.A. for weeks-on-end, only rarely posting little blurbs, whether it be a short-ass post or a photo. I kick myself for this, and for the life of me, I’ve tried to adapt a “posting schedule”, but to no avail. I’m so surprised I’ve been able to keep up with this blog for as long as I have, and I’m so impressed with how many readers I’ve accumulated (and I appreciate every single one of you). I will get better at this posting issue; I’m thinking on getting a planner. Maybe that’ll help me out. Will keep you posted on how that works out.

So, where the heck have I been? Let’s say this; life has gotten in the way, once again. busy and not busy at work, boyfriend’s birthday was about 5 days ago, dividends came in recently (if you’re from Alaska, you know what I mean), and now I’m trying to figure out how to treat ourselves to a vacation/stay-cation in the near future.

A couple of weeks ago, our local SCA group had our annual Newcomer’s Feast, welcoming any newcomers, explaining what the group is and what we do, and there was a decent-sized turnout. And every year, there’s a theme. Last year, it was something to do with making little pouches and cording; this year, it was “Dragons In Any Mode”, and I drew a dragon tribal tattoo in pencil for the Arts & Sciences contest, and then I painted  a similar dragon in watercolor for the silent auction that was going on during dinner. […oh my gods, I hope that wasn’t the worst run-on sentence known to man.]

Today, I’ve got my weekly game night to go to; my friend K. is running a D&D 5th Edition campaign, and we have a friend from another kingdom in the SCA visiting us for the evening. T. rolled him up as a human wizard, so we shall see how this goes.

Anyhow, I hope y’all have been enjoying your October so far. As I said before, I appreciate every single one of my readers so, so muchand I’m so glad that y’all have stuck with me thru the M.I.A.-ness and lack of content. I promise, I’ll be working on that. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll be back soon.

Until next time! ❤ ❤



Hey all!

Despite the coffee shop’s Internet being too weak to connect to my laptop properly, I am bringing this blog post to you from my iPhone. (Pretty sad, but whatever works, right?) 

My birthday has come and gone in this past week. (…and no, I don’t feel any older. Thanks, but no thanks, for asking.) That day, I went to breakfast with the boyfriend, then I went to lunch with my friend, T. and had some sushi. It was a pretty good day. The day after, I went to lunch with my parents, and my sister and youngest niece showed up, also. The food was amazing, but the conversation was pretty awful (with one person, in particular). That afternoon, I went to play some D&D-5E with some friends; was treating to a chocolate-iced angel food cake with strawberries. 

Damn, long-winded up there, eh?

*ahem*…anyhow, now I’m waiting here at my favorite coffee shop. Why am I waiting? What am I waiting for? My friend T. and I are going to have brunch today at 11. I’m excited. I was going to create some sets on Polyvore and try to create a video from Crab Festival, this year, but as I said, the wifi is shoddy and it was ticking me off. 

Now I’m sitting here, finishing up this blog post, sipping on water, and listening to my Spotify playlist (currently listening to “Lies” by Marina and the Diamonds). 

I hope y’all are enjoying your week (and summer), so far. Take care. Until next time! ❤ ❤

Sun, Work; Rain, Relaxation [and Productivity]..?

Hey all.

Why is it that whenever it’s sunny outside, we have to work? And then, when it’s raining, we have our weekend? But let me explain; I like the sunshine, but I love the rain! I especially love it when it’s just down-pouring [not like today, where there’s a gusting wind accompanying said rain]; I also love it when I can hear the rain outside my window at night, as it helps sooth my mind and get me to sleep quicker.

Today, I woke up with a horrible backache; don’t know how it happened, but I’m thinking I may’ve slept wonky or something…so I sat on the couch in the living room and watched some YouTube and played some X-Com: Enemy Within. Then, I turned on Spotify’s “Rainy Day” playlist, unloaded the clean dishes from the dishwasher, put a dirty load in and started those, and finally made myself some lunch and decided to hop on the laptop to update some things.

As always, I hope you all have had a good week so far, and if you ever feel inclined to chat with me, leave me a comment below. I’d love to hear from you.

Until next time… ❤ ❤

Hello, Hello!

Hey guys!

Okay, so I know I’m a day late with this blog post — my bad. BUT, that’s not entirely a bad thing; just means I was busy. After the fiasco that happened two Sundays ago at work, things finally seemed to mellow-out, and that was an amazing reprieve.

Yesterday was quite busy, though — I went to have coffee with my friend L and her boyfriend N, and that was great; I hadn’t seen either of them (I feel like) in months, so it was great to catch up and just chat about random things. Then, the boyfriend got off work and we went to dinner with our friends K & T; afterwards, we went to see Deadpool. That was an okay movie; I guess it was funny in some parts, but to be honest, the boyfriend liked it more than I did.

Today, the boyfriend and I went out to lunch with our friend H; we had fun, were able to catch up with her, also…yadda-yadda…y’all know where that goes.

Honestly, sad to say, I don’t have much of anything new or exciting to post about, this week. I thought it’d be a lot longer. 😦

That being said, I hope y’all have a good day. Enjoy the rest of your week, as the weekend is just around the corner.

Until next time! ❤ ❤

Happy 2016! *Update*

Hey all!

I am getting worse at posting blogs. (Which is weird, since I now have internet at the apartment.) Anyhow, I guess I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m sorry about not posting anything in a while…err, anything of real substance. Between work and the holidays, and my sister’s birthday, AND just me being a homebody, AND NOW I’ve also come down with a cold [as of Sunday evening]. Y’all know how much I hate being sick. As it is, I need to invest in (or ask the bf to get) some WalMart-brand Theraflu.

Enough of my griping and asking for forgiveness for me being M.I.A. for so long; how have you been???? Anything exciting happen recently? What did you get for Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.

Also, something I wanted to ask y’all…I’ve been debating for the longest time about making a blog post dedicated to the gripes I have about working in customer service. Would that be something you’d like to read, or should I just keep it in my personal paper-journal? Please let me know what you think.

I guess I should let y’all go, for now, but I hope you had an awesome Christmas & New Year’s. Take care!

Until next time! ❤ ❤

Long Time No See!! (Yeesh…sorry about that!)

Hey all!

First off, I want to wish all of my USA followers a very happy early 4th of July. Let me know how y’all are spending it? Me? I’ll be working, then maybe having dinner with my dad and the boyfriend. (Still not sure as of yet.)

So, I know what you’re thinking….“Hey! Where’ve you BEEN?!” Well, let me tell you…

I have recently landed a new job at one of our local grocery stores as a courtesy clerk. That makes me so happy to say, considering what I’d gone thru in the five months prior. Also, I’ve had my birthday come and go, and a good friend of mine left to make the her move to the big city. You know I wish her all the luck in the world. (I still miss her, though.)

Yesterday, I started house/dog-sitting for my sister, who’s currently out of town to spend the 4th of July with friends. Speaking of house/dog-sitting, I did a bit of that for another friend, early-on in June, for two weeks. That was pretty awesome.

Anyhow, I know that’s a bigger blurb than what I’ve been flingin’ at you guys lately. As always, I do apologize for my prolonged absence. I’ve just been super-busy, and will try to remedy this as best and as quickly as I can.

I hope you all are doing well, and that you have a fun & safe 4th of July!!
Until next time! ❤ ❤
