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!

Sectional Saturdays #8 So hey, I’m not dead!

Sooo…

I have been off and on for months. Almost a year.

giphy

A lot has happened in a year. A lot.

I actually… have only read 2-3 books since then.

tumblr_nc4piov8x91tfbtrwo1_400

I KNOW, I KNOW. >____<;

But, something just… blocked me. I’ve been trying to read, and while I have gotten some done…

I just can’t focus.

giphy1

But it’s not all bad.

I actually have started some self improvements.

I’m in therapy for one.

giphy2

And it hopefully will help me better myself.

I have also made some really great friends. I see these friendships lasting for a very very long time. They have kept me whole while others try to break me even further.

I will have to give thought to what I want to do with my blog, I still want to do book reviews, but it might not just be it. ^^;

Anyways, I think I might be going for now, I’ve been very distracted in writing this and I don’t want to leave it as a draft. X_X

Sectional Saturdays #7/ #fridayreads Absent?! Book haul?! [7/4/15]

So it has been exactly two weeks since I posted.

tumblr_mdkfq2LtzU1qj8u1do2_500

I have a lot going on in my life right now. I will be going back and forth to places in the next few weeks, so I will still be busy. But… I will still be doing my best to do reviews at the least. I just won’t be doing many weekly memes and I may miss a Sectional Saturday and Sunday Showerthoughts here and there.

If you want to know what is going on in my life, you can look at my personal blog linked here. I will occasionally update what is going on.

Sectional Saturdays: #6 Blogging, sleepy, I shaved my head?! [6/20/15]

giphy (4)

It’s been a little while since I posted one of these! I thought it would be fun to give you all a nice little update! 😀

So, if you may not have noticed… I have been blogging…

Blogging_loudly-10541

A lot.

I have been trying to play catch up with a lot of reviews, and have a few things in the works for the next few months. So keep an eye out for that!


Also, on my twitter…

sonnenzimmer-giveaway

                 

I have an extra copy of A Court of Thorns and Rose by Sarah J Maas that I would love to give a good home! Please, I do ask one thing: If you already have a copy, unless you plan on giving it to a friend… Don’t enter. I want this to go to someone who doesn’t already have it and really wants to get it. I know that sounds mean… but I know how it feels. I am sure all of us do.


Now, for the sleepy thing…

powerpuffgirlll

I have had the weirdest sleep schedule. I have been getting up at 4am and going to bed at 12-1am. I am not getting much sleep, which results in a lot of:

Duckling-Falling-Asleep-on-Desk

I honestly do not know why this is happening. It might be the humidity getting to me at night. It might be the fact I am depressed. I have no clue. The moment I can get to a doctor of some sort, I am going to ask, because I have NO energy during the day. I don’t even want to read somedays. I just feel so horrible.

It’s been slowing down a bit, but still. =/


So, now for what you may have been waiting for.

Yes. I shaved my head.

SPN_GASP

HOLD YOUR HORSES! IT’S NOT THAT BAD!

britney-gif-shave-head

And it’s only the back, under my hair.

It was getting to be a hassle, I have extremely thick hair. To the point I sweat like a shetland sheepdog during the summer, and I wasn’t having it. I refuse to sweat so bad that I make the cows come home.

It’s not even that far shaved down. It’s like, still a little under an inch long. But, for the summer I plan on trying to keep it that length. See if it helps. Besides, a new hairdo isn’t so bad.


Anyways, I think it is time to jet for me, those naps I mentioned before? Calling my name.

Until next time.

SECTIONAL SATURDAYS #5 [6/6/15]

So it’s been a bit since I posted one of these, or blogged normally!….

Sorry about that. 😦

sorry

We’ve had so much happening in life. From storms, tornadoes, internet outages, drama on the place I used to moderate on Reddit, in real life drama and so much more… I have been exhausted.

tumblr_mx3poaYCM31t3vxqvo1_400

Even after everything calmed down, I needed a break… so I took it. I felt so drained. Like I was just…. done. I pretty much holed myself up and didn’t talk to anyone. Barely even my husband! I just wanted me time so bad.

leave-me-alone-to-die

Well, in that span I read 22 books.

22 books.

That is like, most of my goal for the YEAR. Needless to say, I shattered my Goodreads goal haha. A great bunch was graphic novels, but still. I read a LOT. I am very proud of myself.

That being said… I have a lot of book reviews coming. So, you might be getting flooded with reviews over the next week or so. Not quite sure how I will handle this all.

I have read some pretty dang good books, some not so good, and one I didn’t like, but loved the flow!

Have you read anything good, okay or just not your thing lately? Leave me a comment!

Anyways, I have to get to getting. See you around!

Sectional Saturdays #4 [4/25/15]

I am so sorry this is a day late, I thought that the browser ate this post!

My last post of this kind was over a month ago… I have good reason! The reason I have been gone is well. I had to have surgery. Before you all get upset and worried:

im-fine-ross

What had happened was, apparently I have massive scar tissue damage from my gastritis and a piece of my dinner got stuck in my esophagus. After hours of trying to remove it without surgery to no avail, I had to go under the knife. They also took a biopsy of my throat, not liking what they saw. Still waiting on the results.

im okay

Other than that, life has been stressful from family things, recovery and just plain bleh.

After the surgery, my lovely family on my fathers side decided that it would be a good idea to gang up on me (lovingly) on Facebook to come visit, even wanting to front the bill since it would take us forever to pay for both my husband and I to get there. Normally, just telling them the truth (we have no ride, no money) lets them know I do want to see them, but this time before I could..

a friend decided to be wonderful.

I am not upset… but we had just planned to try and start getting our life together. Next month we were planning on getting a bed, which we deperately need. We are sleeping on two old ass mattresses (two fulls) and a memory foam on top that is too big for it (a queen sized one). We planned on getting a normal king sized bed and start making payments on it. We planned on updating our kitchen, livingroom and possibly saving to go somewhere this summer close to home.

After seeing all of this… I only felt one thing about our plans.

We had been waiting and waiting. Now we had to put it all on hold. Sure, I get to see my family. On BOTH sides! I was beyond the moon, but we had been waiting YEARS for the opportunity to feel okay doing this.

We had been waiting for everything with what had been happening (Taking care of Nana, us moving and still traveling back and forth at times to see and take care of her, dealing with drama with a friends ex, almost losing our apartment due to our old land lady not processeing our paperwork, Nana’s passing, my glasses breaking, barely making ends meet due to many things, his glasses breaking and my few trips to the hospital including the last and so much more) to calm, and it felt RIGHT… then this happens.

Now, any money we had and were going to have had to go to: Clothes, gas money, travel stuff, making sure everything was secure and just UGH.

Then, my wonderful friend told me her car might be taken away.

After we get everything sorted there… then my dad tells me we have to post pone it cause he needs to do medical stuff.

I understand, I do… just… it was all at once and I just want to scream. So, now Austin and I CAN do all this… I just want a blanket and cookie.

All this stress was bad. It even broke my face out.

Other than that, I have slowly been getting back into reading. I have finished 4 books this month. Which I am damn proud of.

The Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs

The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey

20345202

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

99 days

Invincible by Amy Reed

Invincible_tagline_final.indd

I am planning on reading maybe one more this month. Other than that, life had been okay. I plan on doing a review after this post of The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy. 🙂

I guess that is it for now! I will talk to you soon. 🙂

Sectional Saturdays #2 [3/21/15]

So! I am a little late to the party with my #FridayReads. Life has been one big ball of blah.

I have been not only dealing with loads of stress, depresstion decided to rear it’s ugly head. I have read, maybe… 4 chapters this week? I know that in reality that isn’t horrible, but I feel like a failure.

Dr.-Who

So other than that, last weeks hang out was a success.

We watched Horns and talked a bit. It was a bit nerve wracking at first, since the PS4 wanted to be a butt, but otherwise good.

Horns is fucking awesome by the way.

horns-and-smoke

Other than that, I was supposed to do my first Tea Party Tuesday, but life decided to just nope all over that.

My husband is going to a concert/jazz thing tonight. Now, I have no problem with him going… I just have this fear of him getting hurt. He isn’t a delicate flower by any means, but  just get anxious. Is this something other people get? There is a small possibility he might not come home tonight, and might end up hanging out at a friends moms.

I know logically he will be okay, I still worry.

tumblr_mfmgcsyBK91rhqgewo2_500

I am planning, PLANNING on possibly maybe making a book haul video. I have a lot of books. Specially after yesterday.

SPEAKING OF YESTERDAY.

This happened:

I was floored by what the amazing Heather Doss from Harper Collins sent me. For some people, this might be a normal thing. For me? Not so much. This had me FLOORED. I won’t lie. I cried. This much love took me by surprise. I originally had just requested Emmy and Oliver since she was doing a give away. She LOVED Emmy and Oliver and said she would send it, along with one other of her favorites.

A giant box came.

This is was way more than one.

This was me after opening the box:

tumblr_inline_n227b8fTUW1rv6lpa

SOME OF THEM ARE HIGH TIER REQUESTED.

I just.

This is something I will remember for years to come. Thank you Heather.

So, I recently I got Pokemon Omega Ruby.

WHAT HAVE I BEEN MISSING NOT HAVING THIS SOONER?!

I am using Treeko; Mightyena, Nuzleaf, Skitty, Wingull and Surskit

So, this is a little short, but I have a few things I need to do.

Leave me a comment down below about anything.

Over and out,

Reisa

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

?20150314_150915

20150314_150857

20150314_150908

20150314_151042

20150314_151008

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.

toy_bonnie_jumpscare_by_maxandtv-d86bn9c

I also have a thing for another animatronic.

9WgYQNX

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! 😀 ❤

Bloggingly yours,
