What Happened in July…

I've never done a wrap-up post before, so let's see how this goes. It's not going to be the same as a lot of other peoples' posts, because I've got no idea what I'm doing. (As time goes on, I promise I'll get better.) I did a lot of things in July, and while not … Continue reading What Happened in July…

Book Review: “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline

I hope you've got enough money saved up, because once the apocalypse hits, you're going to need to buy the best virtual reality gaming system out there. Toss your student loan debt out the window (not that that government institution is still functioning...I hope), because you need to be ready to compete in the world's biggest … Continue reading Book Review: “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline

Wal-Mart already has their school supply aisles up and running, and there's no time like the present to get started on dorm packing. I lived in … Continue reading College Life: Dorm Splurges

Original Recipe from Chelsea's Messy Apron. I work from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the job I currently hold. Due to how busy we are, that means I take my break usually between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. That's way too early in the morning to pack a sandwich, and I got very tired … Continue reading Recipe Review: Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Review: “Old Man’s War” by John Scalzi

Last week I reviewed The Android's Dream by Scalzi and declared it to be one of my favorite books, not only because of the humor, but because of Scalzi's attention to detail with the alien races. Old Man's War was written before AD, but it doesn't read like it. I blew through this novel in about four hours … Continue reading Review: “Old Man’s War” by John Scalzi
