So a small update…

So…

 

I haven’t really been updating on my life. It’s not cause I don’t want too!

 

Life just has been busy as hell! I am lucky if I get a moment to sit down and not worry about if X is going to complicate Y, or if there is enough money to do XYZ. Or if I can get ABC to KYL in time to make sure BLH is done!

Life is kicking my ass.

Nothing bad is happening. It’s just been busy. Life has actually been.. good! We actually have adopted! Here is our sweet boy now:

20181130_145608

We named him Ruce! It’s a long story how we got him, that I may write out in another blog post.

So while life is kicking my ass… I am going to force myself to sit down and do what I need for me. For me, that’s reading, writing and gaming. That’s one of the reasons why I started PokeJournal!

I really hope I stick with it. I really love the concept of it, and want to do more than just Pokémon White.

If this works out, I may venture off to other games. Who knows?

I am also gonna try to get back into book blogging on here again. SLOWLY. I miss it. I really do. I may cross post the blogs (and mark off that I am when I do).

The stuff on my rant/short story blog, Six of Crows is going to stay there for the most part. While I might cross post some in the future, it’s going to pretty much stay the same.

I know it’s weird having three blogs, but it makes sense for me.

I am weird about certain things.

I hope everyone has been doing well! I would love to know what is going on in your lives!

Anyways, this is it for now!

#BookBlog vs #BookTube vs #Bookstagram WHICH IS THE BETTER PLATFORM?!

Round-One2

WHO WILL BE THE VICTOR?! WHO WILL GET ALL THE BOOKS AND LOVE?!

WHO IS THE BEST OF THE BEST?!?!?

…..

..

.


ALL OF US.

tumblr_inline_mfk48xBMkX1rbs09l

We are all awesome in our own rights, why do we feel the need to attack each other?!

tumblr_nazgyaYSSo1rosb88o1_500

SERIOUSLY PEOPLE WHAT THE HECK?!

We all love books. We all love reviewing them. We all love the same things. Why are we bickering?!

If you aren’t happy, and feel the need to put someone on blast PUBLICLY just because you don’t like them, what they do, what they get, the platform they use, how they review… Then maybe you shouldn’t say anything. Maybe you need to improve upon yourself. You work on you, because to throw that kind of shade at someone, in book blogging, booktubing, bookstagraming, anywhere is just freaking wrong.

how-to-loose-weight-after-holidays-9-fool-proof-diet-tips-eat-on-schedule

IF YOU FEEL THE NEED TO BE SHADY AND A MEAN GIRL, PLEASE GO VENT SOMEWHERE ELSE.

All of us work for what we want to achieve!

This isn’t aimed at any one person or group. I know there are people who shady reguardless of group they are in. They talk smack about people in their own bubble as well. Venting in private is one thing, but to down someone publicly or a group of people for how they do things, why they do things and what they recieve (followers, arcs, finished copies, attention from publishers, etc) for the work that they do is bad. There is no justifying it. If you feel the need to publicly shame someone, then maybe there is something YOU need to work on yourself.

I started booktubing, book blogging and bookstagraming for one thing:

FRIENDS.

I live in a small town. Not a lot of people I know like to read what I do, to talk about books… Hell the library rarely gets updated. =/ Most people use it just for the internet.

I started my platforms because I wanted to meet new people, and heck. Ya’ll seemed sweeter than honey. Yes, not all of us will get along, but we can be CIVIL. Who cares who gets what? Who cares who gets to goto places? I am tired of all the drama. So many people put so much work into what they do, and it’s disheartening to see all of us bash one another for it.

winnie-the-pooh-reading

Can’t we all just start over and try to be friends or at least civil? Seriously. We all love the same thing. We all started our blogs, channels and instagrams for the same reason. Our love of books. The written word! I hate all of us acting like we are different cliques in highschool. We are better than this.

So, I beg of you. Book Bloggers, BookTubers, Bookstagrammers.. Please leave me comments below on your thoughts. How we can work on this. How we can be the family I know we all are. When it comes down to it, we are all just a bunch of book lovers, looking for a place to call home.

kmov_larry_ydmd

All of you rock.

I have made so many wonderful friends over the years on all three platforms. I refuse to be divided, and I am not afraid to stand up and voice my opinion. Because that is what friends do.

I love you all equally.

Sectional Saturdays #1 [3/14/2015]

So, I on a whim I decided to make this a thing.

Sectional Saturdays are going to be a blog post about random things. They might have books. But it’s going to be more, personal posts. Like, about life and the like. How I am feeling. Thoughts I have been having. Ideas. Basically a place I can just jot down things.

I have high hopes for this.

I mean, it can fail horribly and I could just look stupid but uh.

When+i+m+trying+to+impress+someone_f04b94_4608791

So! Introverted me is a little sad and happy today. The friend that was to come over couldn’t because she had to work over time cause they were swamped. Which, is okay. I understand. So we rescheduled for next Tuesday. While part of me is actually kind of sad it didn’t work out, the introvert in me is like:

bd1b9560d37e95330e9295cda24bd2ef

Don’t get me wrong! I really wanted too, but I have been so damn nervous. I sprayed Febreeze all over the house, carpet, and toliet.

febreze-all-the-things1

The house is saturated in fresh linen smell now. There isn’t a square inch of the apartment (outside of the kitchen, which oddly smells like bacon) that isn’t chokingly clean smelling.

We live in a slightly… non girly household. It looks more like a bachelor’s pad. Which is fine with me. The bedroom looks like a library. It’s perfect. Except for the lack of bookshelves. That’s the only downside.
We have gaming posters, wizards, roman soliders and my little pony everywhere. We also have a lot of Funko Pops. I flipping love Funko Pops. I recently got two new posters. One from the amazing Eric Smith; author of INKED and GEEK’S GUIDE TO DATING and another from a friend that is Harley Quinn! Both are going to be showcased in the back of my videos once I have thumbtacks.

Harley Quinn is another great love.

tumblr_lzypmy1ea61r7kck2o1_500

I have loved her since her debut in 1993, same month as my birthday. She was a 5 year old’s dream. At first I thought she was just a crazy antithesis to my fear of clowns and jesters. Someone who wasn’t scared of anything. The first real DC comic character I loved.

oh__mistah_j__color_by_bananaboo2-d2zvxg1

I will probably go more into my love of her later.

SO! In lieu of current circumstances, I decided to have some fun today, since my plans were cancelled and I cannot dye my hair /light/ purple anytime soon…

20150314_150135

I did this. I didn’t want to open my toner yet, since my roots are already showing, and I wanted a little flair to my hair. Yes, I love the blonde (as does most everyone else…), but I wanted to add a little me to my hair.

My big plans were to do my hair like this:

5f68834bde978c7e6e1e70c406b85830

But, due to the toner arriving a day after the latest date, it won’t be able to be like that or at least a month. I have been devistated. So, I decided to take another approach.

My thoughts on first glance

I like it. I honestly do. It gives me an idea of what to expect next time. I love the contrast of the blue and purple hues of the Manic Panic Ultra Violet. I think I will have fun with this. Makes me want to try out many different hair styles!

Kind of reminds me of this guy:

Kuja_anim

Since my Saturday is more free, and less me panicing over the fact that I have to try to be not… different.

0BzzBcR

I think I will dabble in a little playing of Pokemon, or Persona Q. I know I need to check on my Nintendogs… It’s been a while. :S Maybe even another playthrough of Final Fantasy IX.

Does anyone else play these games?

I also have a thing for Rogue Legacy.

But… I probably should be playing Five Nights At Freddys.

Freddy_trailer

I own all three, but haven’t finished ANY of them. In terms of which one scares me the most, I will always (until the next possible one comes out) say 1.

My favorite animatronic is Bonnie Bunny.

Bonnie_blarg

Something about him being a bunny, being purple, and reminding me of Frank from Donnie Darko. I think it’s kind of subliminally why I want purple hair. I also like Toy Bonnie.

I also have a thing for another animatronic.

Do you play FNAF? Do you take part in the fandom? I am actually kind of active in one part of it. (No, not that part.) 🙂

I blame this guy for my major love of the fandom/series:

Anyways, I think I am going to go read The Girl at Midnight now. Since, I have the time and all.

Please feel free to leave comments, I love to talk to peoples!… online.

You all have a wonderful weekend, and until next time; bye bye! 😀 ❤

Monday Missions/Updates #1

So this is my very first ever MONDAY MISSION!

Butter_Lettuce_party

So, I have been thrown back into a slumptastic slump from HELL. I haven’t read anything much other than a few chapters here and there since I have been sick!

Oh yeah. I was sick. Last month was a months from which scary stories are formed.

First, I was sick, dripping, and just plan awful feeling. Then my husband got sick, broke his toe and then his glasses.

wanted to read, but any time I would try too, I would drip/he would need my help/I couldn’t focus. It was torture!

So, renewed and healthy(ier), March hopefully will be promising.

My plans for this week are as follows:

Finish up Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

rebel belle

Start/Read The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

11265077

Start/Read The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey <3<3

20345202

And HOPEFULLY start one of these:

* Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury

517qzv8wvZL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

* Bomb by Sarah Mussi

25024179

* My Best Everything by Sarah Tomp

—-

All of these look amazing, and I am loving Rebel Belle… but I keep setting it down. It’s not bad, but the slump is pushing all will to read. I am debating on reading a Graphic Novel to break the tension.

What is on your TBR, what are you looking forward too reading? Leave a comment down below, and let’s talk!

On to the more personal stuff!

Hopefully by the end of the night, I will be a blonde and starting on my tour to being a pastel colored beauty! I am planning on making my hair kind of like this:

or

Which do you think looks better?

Anyways,

Reisa over and out!

The one where Reisa cries like a big baby/#FridayReads~!

Okay, first and formost…

 

I JUST FINISHED FRIENDS ON NETFLIX.

 

I never got to finish it completely before. I have been watching it almost religiously since it appeared Oh So Lovingly on Netflix. I am literally typing this after I finished the series.

BUT BEFORE I GET INTO MY RANT ABOUT FRIENDS…

Let’s do #FridayReads!

 

This weekend I will be reading:

 

rebel belle

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins!

I am like…11% through it. Like, Chapter 4. It’s pretty good so far, but life things have been getting in the way of me fully enjoying it. But, I am liking the writing style, the snarkiness and just how it’s so easy to read!

I am also reading:

no rest

No Rest for the Witches by MaryJanice Davidson, Lori Handeland, Cheyenne McCray and Christine Warren

This is definitely not for under 18. I used to read a LOT of Paranormal Romance, and I thought that this might get me back into it… and it’s working. 🙂

 

Now…

 

ON TO THE FRIENDS TALK!!

Fair warning; SPOILERS AHOY!

 

Okay so… OH MY GOD I AM SO HAPPY RACHEL STAYED!!!!! I mean, I knew… but I never saw the ending.

 

I DIDN’T KNOW MONICA AND CHANDLER HAD TWINS!!!!!!!

I am so happy about this. They deserved a happy family. When I first heard they couldn’t have kids, it touched home. Neither my fiance and I can have kids… and we have come to accept that. It’s nice to see them have a happy ending.

God, this makes me want to watch Joey, even though it was a horrid failure.

I am not sure what to marathon next.

 

SUGGESTIONS?!?!

 

Anyways, I am out!
