Making more time for sharing

I started this blog about 2 years ago with the main objective to share little bits of everything. However, I have let life get in the way. As we all do at times in our lives. It’s especially important that we do not let obligations and “things” get in the way of doing things we want to do. So with that being said, I plan to dedicate at least one hour a week to this blog. I am not completely sure what my goals are for this blog. But I do know that I started it for a reason.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! See you all next week.

January 2015 Movie Preview

Relatively Entertaining

E: I have to be honest: it will be a minor miracle if I see anything this month that actually officially opens in January.  It’s all Oscar for me, this month and next.  Why bother with this slate’s trifling offerings when there’s so much fantastic stuff out there that opened in December and November?

M: I’m unlikely to get to the theater in any given month, but yeah, with things I want to see (Selma, Theory of Everything) and things I feel like I should see (Hobbit, Mockingjay), this month’s openings might not make the list.

C: I mostly agree — heck, like M I’m still hoping to catch some stuff that came out in November, like The Theory of Everything — but it sounds like a few December movies aren’t as urgent as I thought they’d be. Based on the reviews, for instance, Unbroken could…

2015

One of my closest friends inspired me to create a vision board to bring in the new year. So I did :). 2014 was quite the experience and though I am blessed to have survived the year, there are a few aspects I’d rather not repeat. Financial instability, emotional imbalance, negativity, and the list goes on. My vision board is just a combination of all things I would like to work on in 2015. Most vision boards are collages with pictures and magazine clippings but I decided to use materials I already had in my home (cutting frivolous spending :)). My theme for 2015 is “HEALTH: Spiritual, Mental, Physical, Financial”. I won’t go into too much detail since the picture tells it all. But I will say that I plan to do better for myself this year. Wish me luck everyone. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Vision Board 2015

Winter in Cedar Rapids 2014

The idea of going out and taking pictures of the snow seemed like a good idea, before we actually did it. My Boyfriend and I decided to go out in the snow Saturday to take a few pictures of …well….Winter in Cedar Rapids. I must say that this is the coldest Winter I’ve experienced in my 25.5 years of life. With sub zero temperatures and steady snow throughout. But anywhoo…I will stop writing now, and just share the pictures with you guys.

LOL I do not look happy in this picture.

Vegetarian for 30 Days

So…one of my sorority sisters started a 30 day vegetarian challenge February 1st. My first thought was, “wow that’s ambitious”. My second thought was, “Hmmmm. Maybe I can give it a shot”. My third thought was, “I’ve never finished any 30 day challenge I’ve started. EVER”. Squat challenge. Ab challenge. 52 week financial challenge. I’ve failed at all of them. What will make this one any different? It’s a mental thing. At least, that’s what I’ve heard countless times from countless people. Well I’ve decided to give this one a shot. Day 1 meat free. We shall see. Thinking positive thoughts.
