And just like that…it’s March

I love autumn. There is just something about the changing colours that brings me joy. It also helps that it’s not boiling hot and I am able to walk around and not sweat the minute I walk out in the morning. I’m all for that sweater weather – the autumn aesthetic. Not to mention coffee,…

The One Where I Try to Be Productive

It’s the school holidays – the summer break – which means I have nearly a whole six weeks to do so many things. Of course, one of my main priorities is relaxing and taking some time for myself as teaching is rather draining. But, as my friends have reminded me time and time again –…

50 000 words written

I did it again. I spent this month writing 50 000 words for NaNoWriMo. 50 000 words. 30 days. Unlimited plot holes and mixed up timelines.

NaNoWriMo 2018

How is it nearly November again? Seriously. I guess being a teacher means that time goes so much more quickly than I feel it has a right to. That being said, it’s heading into summer here in New Zealand which means it’s nearly the end of the year. And, more importantly, it’s nearly time for…

Adventures in …

It’s that time of the year again. San Diego Comic Con. Well, it’s nearly that time but I am back in California, hanging with my Uncle and family over here. This also means that I’ve been drinking far too many ice cold caffeinated beverages and trying to relax but also trying to stimulate my brain…

Two activities that fall into this category are: | Reading | Art These are two things that I used…

What I’ve Been Doing …

So it’s the new year and I’ve been busy doing a million things over the school break. Most of them trivial but some of them important. The biggest thing is I have joined up with two other nerd minded people to create a collective blog called: This Nerd Life The aim is to have three…

An Expensive Week and NaNo Talk

It’s been an expensive week for me. My laptop, which had survived many overseas trips, adventures and stories, finally decided to give up. After three hours of me trying to restart it and getting nothing but a flashing icon I knew that I had to shell out for a new computer. So I am typing…

Currently as an update…

What am I currently doing? Everything and nothing. Do you ever get to that stage where you just are stalled because you’re not sure what you really want to do. You have ideas, mood boards, lists, and a gigantic map that highlights your next steps but you’ve kind of stalled and have pulled over while…

Why I loved Wonder Woman.

I will be the first to admit that I am not as knowledgeable about Wonder Woman as I am about Batman and that side of the DC universe. Of course I remember watching re-runs of the 1970s show and I loved watching the Justice League cartoons when I was younger and, although I know about…
