As you all probably know by now, the husband and I went on a little road trip this past weekend to visit my very pregnant friend whom I haven’t seen in years. It was a pretty chill weekend as she can’t move very much due to her load but I did learn a few things that I’ve decided to share with you all today.[...]
We are on our way home from middle of nowhere Pennsylvania and since it’s technically Monday, I feel obligated to post something.
So, Happy Labor Day and here’s a picture of Blue Mountain and under it!
Hey, hey! It’s Facebook Friday! It’s also the first day of September and if the weather today is any indication (50 degrees F), Autumn is right around the corner!
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.[...]
Endangered Thursdays is normally dedicated to animals listed on the IUCN list all over the world to bring awareness to their plight. Today I’m switching it up and keeping it short.
As many people are aware, a huge hurricane named Harvey graced parts of Texas with its presence beginning last week. Houston in particular is now up to 50 inches of rain. That’s as tall, if not taller than the average human which means this city is underwater. Harvey has returned to land but this time in parts of Louisiana which is heartbreaking considering this is the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, 12 years ago, that killed thousands of people.[...]
Yesterday I read an interesting rant over at Smart Bitches. The premise of the article is that women in academia are always portrayed as super smart but lack common social skills or even intimacy skills. To name a few mentioned, the heroine usually has no time for relationships because her schooling is most important to her, she’s also a really late bloomer (virgin) in the romance department and she’s implied to be average on the beauty scale because she’s not wearing that long red dress and stiletto heels every day.[...]
The following story may make you sad or it might make you laugh. Or maybe a little of both. Either way, before you proceed, here’s your warning that your reaction may be completely different from mine.
My place of work is in a rural part of NE Ohio. If you live in a rural area then you know 1) the only fast food place you’ll likely have nearby is McDonald’s and it’s going to be at least 3 or more miles away; 2) downtown is postage stamp size and 3) there are a lot of wild animals that like to make their appearance in or around your house not normally seen when you live near a city. There are other indicators that prove you live in a rural setting of course but those are the main three in my opinion.[...]
Long time ago back in like 2004ish? (I can’t remember specifics), Nel was a young kid getting excited for high school. Because of certain neighborhood events that occurred, my mother decided she wanted to move away. Since this move was happening right around school starting and my mom didn’t like the ratings of the school district in the area we were moving to, she decided to homeschool me and my sister. I don’t know if the school still exists but it was my first venture into the world wide web. There was a homework help chat room a lot of us would frequent and not talk about homework.[...]
Before I get into the awesome eclipse pic share, I want to discuss thoughts I have about the things that people do for money. If you’ve been following this corner of the internet for a while, you know I do endangered posts every Thursday featuring animals and sometimes plants that are endanger of extinction in the hopes of spreading more awareness.[...]
I’m so excited!! This week is going to be so fantastic! I have a story I really want to share but I can’t until at least Wednesday. Make sure you check back in two days. Today, what I’m really excited about is that there is going to be a total solar eclipse! I’m lucky enough to live in the United States which has a path of totality mapped out. I’m also quite excited to be in a state that’s close to said path of totality. It will only be a partial solar eclipse but it’s 80% coverage and that’s still something to be excited about considering I don’t remember ever seeing one in my life![...]
I recently decided not to post on the weekends because I’m so behind on my Goodreads challenge I figured I’d be able to devote more time to reading if I cut back on my posting. I still interact and read all of your posts, I just don’t post any of my own. I’ve been nominated for quite a few awards over the past few weeks. I’m also behind on those and I want to say I apologize for that and admit that I’m probably not going to catch up on them if they aren’t book related (please don’t hate me).[...]
