The Playlist Shuffle Tag

I was so graciously tagged by Claire at Brizzlelass Books for this fun award! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you should. She’s an avid book blogger who is very engaging with her audience and a cool person. 🙂 So here’s the thing. I have amassed quite an MP3 collection over the years in my Google Play music account and I used to put it on shuffle while driving to and from work. But then my husband bought Tidal and now I just listen to whole albums or NPR on the way to work and Pandora at work. So I went into said Google Play account and hit the shuffle button to see what happens. Here are the rules and following those are my songs chosen by a robot.[...]

Facebook Friday 10/13/17

Hey, Hey! It’s Facebook Friday!! It’s also Friday the 13th so don’t go walking under ladders or breaking mirrors or you’ll get 7 years bad luck! I walked under a tow motor though.. hmm does that count??

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.[...]

Rumis #1

My post is so late! Aaaaah! Forgive me!

I have a feeling there will be a lot of these posts where I start to want to talk about something and then think of something else that would make a better post but it’s a jumbled assortment of thoughts. We’ll call this series, that will be as random as my mind, rumis as in ruminations of Nel.[...]

Modern Movie Adaptations of Classic Stories

I was speaking to my Swaziland bestie the other day about music with great lyrics. That lead me to talk about a song off one of my favorite movie soundtracks and got me thinking about modern movie adaptions of classics. For those who don’t know what I mean when I say modern movie adaptations, it means stories created by such authors like William Shakespeare or even such tales like Cinderella, are revamped to be set in the 20th century instead of the teenth-century they were written in. So instead of horse and buggys, there are cars and planes adapted to fit the story. It’s still related to the story’s overall plot and the endings but it’s also a little bit different. I actually think it’s quite brilliant when writers and directors do this but anyway, here are a few of my favorites:[...]

Book Review

There are a lot of things going on in my life at this very moment and if I talk about them out loud it might give me homicidal tendencies so here’s a book review. My book reviewing skills are completely rusty and I don’t have specific directions about how to do it the most informative way but I hope you enjoy these![...]

Facebook Friday 10/6/17

Hey, Hey! It’s Facebook Friday!!

Facebook Fridays is a weekly segment of RT where I share some fun stuff I observed on Facebook this past week. I share a fun meme or screenshot, a video that resonated in some capacity and a photo of my own.

Going through my feed this week, I did not share a meme, however, my coworker tagged me in one with the comment: “Thank goodness for Chanel. She alone is changing those stats.”[...]

Bactrian Camel

Today’s endangered species is brought to you by the family Camelidae. Fun fact. Camels were once native to North America before the age of humans. Unfortunately, humans hunted a lot and they ended up going extinct. Now before you say, “But I see camels in the zoo all the time!”, I know you do. That would be because camels were reintroduced domestically to the continent. Now, there are two types of camels; the Camelus ferus (Bactrian or two humped camel) and C. dromedarius (Dromedary or one humped camel). Bactrian camel is the species we are focusing on today. It should be also noted that I am talking about the wild Bactrian camel as opposed to its domestic counterparts which are listed under Camelus bactriarus.[...]

My favorite monkey has tagged me in her new debut, awesomesauce tag! It’s pretty self explanatory so here we go:

“Your Majesty, this is a magic suit” – An Overhyped Book That Promised to be *Something More*  

3090465

The entire Twilight Series. I only read it because it was hyped up so much. I enjoyed the first book but that was the beginning and end of Twilight for me. And I won’t even get started on the movies. I still don’t know why I watched them; probably the hypeness.[...]

Tales of an Insect

***Warning! This story contains cursing because I curse a lot in real life especially when unexpected things I’m not prepared for occur***

I’m traumatized.

No, seriously. I try to be a good girl and eat my serving of dark leafy greens but CLEARLY, there’s a reason I’m carnivorous and here’s the story detailing why:[...]
