Uncharted

So I feel like a total loser. I get waaaaaaay too emotional when playing video games. That’s probably why I don’t play a lot. Well a few months ago we bought the game Uncharted because I like playing the Tomb Raider games and it’s said to be similar. I was having a fun time playing a new game until a point where I got stuck. I’m playing on the easiest setting and I keep getting killed. The spot in the game is a small area where a bunch of guys come out and I have to kill them. Well, I […]

Amazing Sky

So, yesterday I got a text from my husband, John early in the day saying that the Northern Lights were projected at a 5 on a scale from 0-9 (according to the Geophysical Institute at University of Alaska, Fairbanks). We’ve never seen them project it higher than a 4, usually because we don’t check it everyday because I’m sure it’s higher than a 4 a lot. However, I was all excited so we were going to go out and try to see the Northern Lights up here in Alaska. I’ve seen them a few times in the past couple years […]

Happy Birthday to Me

Yup, so today was my 26th birthday :D It’s kind of bittersweet though… great cuz it’s a birthday but not so great because now I feel so old! I’m now closer to 30 than 20 and I’m not sure how I feel about that… :X In happier news, John got me a great present, although I saw it before today because he picked a bad hiding spot… He set it in the downstairs bathroom under the sink. Where the extra toilet paper is, so when I went to change the roll, I saw it sitting down there. It was a […]

Start of a Tradition?

I’ve seen a few of these around and decided I want to do my own little reflection on the past year. Maybe I’ll keep it up each year, maybe not. I guess we’ll see! I kept finding the same list of questions, so I just picked my favorites 1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? Gave birth! and the many awkward and unpleasant things that follow that… Let me tell you, I hope to not be doing that for a while… 2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for […]

Hello 2012!

So, it is the New Year! 2012! Hey, wait… isn’t the world suppose to end this year? I guess we’ll see, huh? Well, John and I decided to bring in the new year with a Harry Potter movie marathon. John got me the 8-disc Blu Ray set, sadly not the one with all the special features as we didn’t have $250 to spend on movies… but it’s still awesome none-the-less We had another couple over as we started the first movie at noon on December 31st and planned to go non-stop for the entire 19 hours and 40 minutes (yes, […]

Busy Time of Year

Yes, this time of the year is usually busy for most people. However, in my house, it’s busier than ever! December 13 is John’s birthday. December 19 is our anniversary December 25 is Christmas. December 31 is New Year’s Eve. January 10 is my birthday! It’s crazy! John and I decided that starting this year (well, next year technically) we are going to start putting about $50 per paycheck (so $100 a month) away in savings. This way, we’ll have roughly $1,200 each year to spend on Christmas/birthday/anniversary gifts! I hope we can do that because it would make everything […]

Why Do I Keep Doing This to Myself?

Switching domains. Why? Why do I keep doing it? Well, for the first time in my life I have more than one domain. So, I don’t settle. Hm, this one seems good for this right now… well, maybe I like this one better… No, I better go back… ahh! For the third time I am moving all my fanlistings over to a new domain. Well, 2nd time to a new domain, 3rd time I’m having to re-upload stuff cuz the last time was only changing hosts/servers. But still. Why do I keep doing it? I’m stressing myself out too much! […]
