Elon Musk: Shaping Our Futures

I am a big fan of the Biographics channel and would recommend checking out as many of their videos as you can. I’ve always enjoyed the videos from host Simon Whistler, he seems to delight in learning things for the sake of learning as much as I do. Sometimes I feel like the only nerd out there who wants to feed her brain with as much random and interesting knowledge as she can. Simon seems […]

Adaptational Attractiveness: An Interesting Watch

Leave a comment
Uncategorized

This video from Trope Anatomy educates about the concept of adaptational attractiveness, a term that describes when characters from books are represented by much more attractive actors in film adaptations. It’s a concept that I’ve noticed but have never known what to term it as. I can honestly say that I’ve a gained a new perspective from this video, because I’ve never given much thought to adaptational attractiveness. I think because in the past, I […]

Sparking Joy in the New Year

I’ve owned Marie Kondo’s books for a while now, but have failed to take the time to read them. I often feel too rushed to curl up with a book. But after enjoying one episode of her new Netflix series, I pushed myself to make time to read. It’s always going to be busy and I no longer want this to be an excuse anymore. I’m intrigued by Marie’s KonMari organizational method because of its […]

Korean Pear Confusion

Are Korean pears supposed to be this crunchy? I’m not really sure–they taste sweet and fruity but so, so crunchy. Like baby apple crunchy or fresh-picked melon. The flavor is sweet and light (though I’m not getting an intense pear flavor) with a water chestnut-like texture. Why?? I’ve had these for a few weeks, maybe I messed up? I’m usually a big fan of fruit but texture really is my thang. I can’t handle weird […]

Drinking Away Monday

Yeah, I’m having a hard case of the “Mondays” tonight. Today wasn’t too bad of day, though I’m a bit envious of my coworkers who have a bit of vacation left. Everyone always seems to harbor way more vacation time then I do–all I can do is let it go and drink about it. Forget them. I never overdo it with alcohol, so me “drinking about it” is a couple of sips before passing out […]

Receiving Some Big Magic

An early Christmas present to myself, some creative healing!!  I don’t think I will ever be able to express my gratitude to Liz Gilbert for her incredible read, Big Magic.  I am about halfway through the book and have received more “Aha” moments than I can count. I find such connection Liz’s words–because they are so in touch with many thoughts that circulate throughout my own brain. She directly addresses so many of my own negative […]

Skipping the Company Work Party

I just want this weekend to never end. In a weird way, it has stretched past more than normal. It almost seems like it’s been a few more days than two. Yesterday, I was supposed to attend my company work party, but I ended up not feeling up for it. I don’t mean to be negative but I am really over the encroachment of my personal/professional lives. I do not want to attend anymore work […]
