Happy 4th Of July!!!

Posted July 4, 2017 by Hillary in life / 0 Comments


I want to wish my American readers a Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a blast eating and watching fireworks! I had an early 4th on the 30th, so I will not be partaking in the traditional fare. A friend and I are doing the Crazy Sexy Diet Vegan Cleanse for the month of July, so I will only be eating plants that are still alive, and maybe I will grill some tofu hotdogs and just eat that minus the bun as I am also avoiding gluten.



I hope That everyone has a happy 4th!!!

July 2017 Life Goals

Posted July 1, 2017 by Hillary in life / 0 Comments

I have hinted at my depression this year on the blog, but I did not mention how deep it went. The last three months have been one of the worst depressions I have had since being diagnosed with bipolar. I am on the mend,

but recovery isn’t just like pop a pill then you are all better. It is a process. You have to fight your way out of the hell hole that is bipolar depression. Click To Tweet

I have also started therapy again. This time it is in connection with my binge eating disorder. I am still Following Weight Watchers, but I do that online to track my food. I go to therapy once a week where I come up with ways to cope with binge eating. I have also started going to the gym again. I was soo scared going for the first time in almost five months, but I did it, and true to its word Planet Fitness IS a judgment free zone! My trainer welcomed me back. Needless to say, I can’t just run a mile and do an HIIT workout like before. Again I have to build up to it.


Any good therapist will tell you not to just lay around feeling sorry for yourself. In fact, this blog was started because I had just been diagnosed with Bipolar and the therapist suggested that I engage in a hobby to prevent me from just laying on my bed curled up in the fetal piston waiting for the end of time.


I was going over and over in my head how I could ease back into work and stuff. I kept coming back to Tolstoy and the Purple Chair. In this book, the author reads a book a day for a year to grieve for her sister. While a year sounds extreme, I was like I could do that for a month. Then it hit me. Why not read a book a day for a month? That way I could feel like I was doing SOMETHING while still healing from the depths of the darkness I found myself in. So I came up with an idea and a plan for next month. This is the routine that I will follow every day, except Sundays when I go to church.


  • Get up
  • Get caffeinated
  • Hit the gym
  • Come home shower
  • Put on work PJ ( I am still in the can hardly leave my apt phase)
  • Morning Pages
  • Write some blog posts
  • Read a book


Also, I will go to ALL therapy and Drs appointments. No rescheduling or canceling like I tend to do.


This routine will help me ease back into my old routine. I am BETTER but not completely well yet. I feel that is I follow this it will help me get all the way better so that I can come back strong!


I just want to let people know that if you are suffering from bipolar or depression that you are not alone and the sickness won’t last forever. There is hope.

Omg, I am back to reading and blogging. I have hinted at the dark bipolar depression that overtook me the last three months, but I haven’t gone into much detail. Let’s just say I sat on my couch and stared into space for almost three months. I was managed to drag my ass to the shrink, and they increased my meds. The first time didn’t so anything for me but the second increase worked! This recent Friday I woke up ready to hit the gym. I was shocked. I also read a lot this weekend. I managed to finish TWO books! I am hoping I am back to “normal” now. crossesfingersandtoes

Anyway I finished

The Three Body Problem– I will have a review up shortly, but the main thing is y’all gotta read this book. It is hard Sci-Fi, so if you not into that, you won’t like it. I wish we had access to more translated works. I wish there WERE more translated works. Just think of all the books we are missing cause we can’t read Chinese! Hmmph Anyway needless to say this is going on my top ten for the year.


What Best Next– As a die-hard devotee of the Getting Things Done system I needed a book like this. I am a Christian, and I have read many books, but this one had one of the best stuff on Justification that I have read in my life. If you are not a Christian, then you can skip the first half and go to the second half which he proposes the most genius ideas on the “snags” in the GTD method. Seriously this man is a genius. I am recommended this book to everyone Christian or not. As always will have a review up shortly.


I have an ambitious list for this week.

SuperBetter– I am back in therapy for my bipolar, and my therapist had heard of this program (here is the link to the game if you want). So she wanted to play it with me. I was like fine, so I need to read this book to brush up on what it requires. It is not complicated but there are rules and to get the most out of it, you need to play it right. SO I have read it before, but I didn’t have a therapist working with me on it, so we shall see what it is like to have a trained medical professional as an ally.

The Zombie Survival Guide– Something fun to get my brain off the fact that I am on sick leave once again. I get so tired of dealing with this illness, but reading takes my brain off of that. I mean who cares about being locked up in your apt when you are avoiding zombies?! Yes, I live in my own little world.

Crazy Sexy Diet– I am also addressing my eating issues in therapy, and I saw this at the library and thought it looked good. This girl had healed herself of cancer by going all vegan. I read that and was like hmmmm I gotta read this. Maybe I can heal myself! Heh, I don’t think so BUT if you are in tip top physical health then you can more easily get your mental illness under control, so I am willing to try it.

Toos Of Titians– This has been on my list for ages. I am determined to finally read it this week.

5 For Sunday June 25 2017

Posted June 25, 2017 by Hillary in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

1- as you have probably noticed this blog has been quiet the past few weeks. I will be honest I sunk into a deep depression that took mega dosages of meds to pull me out. I know that this was a risk with bipolar, but damn I haven’t experienced that level of depression in YEARS.  To make it worse, I am not even sure what brought it on. I guess the main thing is to be happy that it seems to be over and I am feeling every day back to my old self.
2- I got a new Kitten!  Meet Marbles Icicles Orlando

Marbles is smiling cause he had a whole bowl of kibbles for dinner. #kittensofinstagram

A post shared by Adventures In Never Never Land (@adventuresinneverneverland) on

I don’t have a story of how I came up with that name I met him and that was the name that popped into my head. Thank God my creativity is still intact.
He is supposed to be a therapy kitty, but he missed that memo. He is a wild little kitten. I don’t think I have got a good nights sleep since I got him. But I love his fuzzy butt. I know he will grow out of the kitten stage and be a more calm cat. At least that is my hope. He is still tiny. As of today, he is 13 weeks old. So there is still a lot of time before he is a grown cat. He does bring me a lot of joy though. In the rough days, he was the only reason I got out of bed. So maybe he is kinda living up to being a therapy kitty.
3- During my down time I have listed to a LOT of podcasts. I can understand most of them now. HAHAHAHA TO the Drs who said I wouldn’t be able to. I am an overachiever, and of course, I had to knock myself out listening to podcasts and youtube and audiobooks  I can understand around 90 percent. I will write a post of what podcasts I love. I listen to a LOT of bookish podcasts. The only problem I have is that I am always doing something while listening, like laundry or something and I can never remember the book I wanted to read to put on Goodreads. I have started to read show notes but that is kinda a pain in the ass but I am not sure how else to remember the book. Any Suggestions?
4- I am turning into a planner freak. I discovered they even have planner blogs and now I WANT ALL THE PLANNERS!! I have the Desire Map Planner. I love Dannielle Laporte so hard, and I want to support her. In fact, I think I have just about everything in her shop. Her candles are the BEST! But I see people with the Passion Planner. The Erin Condron Life Planner and I WANT THEM ALLLLLL… Can one have toooo many planners? Heh.
5- I  have restarted my fitness journey. I am doing Weight Watchers along with counseling for my binge eating disorder so I am hoping by December there will be a HUGE improvement. I go to therapy once a week. I went last week, and I am confident that this time I will gain the tools to lose weight and keep it off. I have also started going to the Gym again. That helped my depression and anxiety the last year, so I am hoping the endorphins still work.

I have finally admitted it to myself… I am depressed. I saw my Shrink last week, and she upped some of my meds, so we shall see if that works. I have been reading but just not writing much. My day looks like this..get up… get caffeinated….read some RSS feeds but feel like I have nothing to contribute..take a shower and settle in with a book. Yeah, not much going on there. I agreed to some therapy, but I honestly have no idea what I shall talk about. Ohhhh I have my dream life, and I feel like this is all there is.. Hmmm

Have any of y’all got a subscription to the Bookriot thingie. The epic level is sold out, but I have my eye on the new release calendar. I wonder if that alone is worth the money. Like finally there is a way to see what books are coming out when. I was usually so confused keeping up with book release dates but from what I saw from the demo that would be perfect for me.

I have been putting a lot of effort into my audio training. I have been listening to a LOT of podcasts. I am working on a post of what I listen to soon. I shall defeat evil robot man the next time I got to the audiologist.

I started using Asana as an editorial calendar. I am finding that I like it. I can move topics around to suit my needs without having to write and rewrite them.

I can’t believe that it is June already! The first half of the year has not been my best but am determined to make the rest of the year shine. Need to get through this depression first though.

I have started going to church again. I went like one time n the first half of the year. Many people have urged me to go back to church so last week I went. I am glad that I have gone back. FerVent made me think, and I am reading a Christian productivity book What’s Best Next that is a gold mine of information. I hadn’t thought of being productive could be viewed in religious terms. The book made me reflect and take a LOT of notes. One thing that it said was what we do for a job here we will do for eternity. SO I guess I am gonna spend eternity typing up book reviews. #Kiddingnotkidding In all seriousness both books together has made me reevaluate the way I approach things. I will have a review up with more thoughts on What’s Best Next later this week, and FerVent review is right here.

My book of the month book arrived! This month I picked White Fur as it was getting rave reviews.I can’t wait to dive in. If you haven’t tried Book Of the Month club, I suggest you give it a try.I have been very satisfied with their service so far. I will be writing up on THAT soon also.

I have a lot of plans for writing, but I find it hard to get started. Depression is an insidious illness. It paralyzes you with fear and dread so that you are left sitting there thinking what you have to say is pure and utter shit. It is hard to get over that hump every single morning. I have managed it twice this week, and I am going for every day this week. Can’t let the darkness win.

After Church, I plan just to sit and read. If it is warm enough outside I will sit on my balcony and read. I am in the middle of the Zombie Survival Guide, and I love it so far. I have this morbid fascination with zombies. I have always said that if the dead were to rise, I would be one of the first one’s bit cause I will be trying to Instagram the whole thing.

Book Review: Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla Shirer

Posted June 9, 2017 by Hillary in Book Reviews / 1 Comment

ISBN: 9781433688676
Book Review: Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer by Priscilla ShirerFervent by Priscilla Shirer
Published by B&H Publishing Group on August 1st 2015
Genres: Religion, Christian Life, Prayer, Women's Issues
Pages: 208
Format: Paperback
Source: library
Buy on Amazon

You have an enemy . . . and he’s dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What’s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn’t general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It’s specific. Personalized. Targeted.   So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you’re on to him and that you won’t back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you’re turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God’s Spirit.  New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, uprooting bitterness, and more. Each chapter exposes the enemy’s cruel, crafty intentions in all kinds of these areas, then equips and encourages you to write out your own personalized prayer strategies on tear-out sheets you can post and pray over yourself and your loved ones on a regular basis.  Fervent is a hands-on, knees-down, don’t-give-up action guide to practical, purposeful praying.

I have wanted to get deeper into my faith and to be honest prayer is the one area I suck at. I always feel like I never know what to say. I am always like Hillary your problems are so small compared to millions of other people who have it worse, or Hillary; God has heard it all before. This leads to me not praying anything.

I have seen this book pop up all over the place in the book blogging world, and I had read one of her books before and enjoyed the book. So off I went to the library to get me a copy. Let me tell you to make sure you have a big chunk of time for this book cause once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. There were so many times in this book where I was like YES!! That is me. Or is my lack of passion for going to Church the Devil trying to get a firm hold? This put a whole new spin on things.

One thing that I liked is that she gave us specific passages that we could copy out. Some books tell us to pray, and I am left wondering what do I say? But Shirer gives us scriptures that we can build off. I copied down all that I felt God calling me to pray over. I finally feel as if I have a starting point for a personalized prayer life.

I also loved that she advocated writing down our prayers and sticking them to a wall or and to start a prayer journal. I started my prayer journal by using Day One, and I posted some on the wall in my Home Office corner so that I will remember what I am praying about all the time since I am here most of the day.

The book itself is divided into a chapter that deals with one specific area that Satan tries to gain a stronghold. I was shocked at some. Before when I was sick with Bipolar, and I felt I had something tangible to pray over and to fight off I had a zeal like you wouldn’t believe. Now that I am well and doing well I find myself lacking that same zeal but never did I imagine that it was Satan trying to increase the increasing distance that I was feeling from our Lord and Saviour.

When I realized that I had lost my zeal for God, I made sure that I got my behind BACK to Church. And no my life is not perfect but I know I made a tiny step in the right direction and I actually could feel God again for a brief moment during Communion, so I know He was pleased also.Click To Tweet This is the chapter that struck me the most out of the whole book.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking to jump start or to start an active prayer life. It will give you guidance and wisdom that you need to craft your personalized prayers so that you don’t feel like you have nothing to say. My prayer life has been full(er) and has picked up speed in the two weeks since I read this book.

What I am Reading

Hi!!! This post contains affiliate links. If You decide to purchase through this blog then all proceeds go to hosting and running this blog at no cost to you. I only recommend products that I use and love so you can be sure that they are not junk! Thank you SO much for your support!

I only read one book this week but I got big plans reading plans for the upcoming reading week. Scribd gave me a free trial and I saw that you could read 8 books at the low low price of 25 dollars a month ha. You get some audiobook credits but I emailed and asked since I am Deaf if they could transfer that into book credits. crosses fingers

So What books did I read last week? Here it is:



It really got me thinking. I am glad I read it. I want to go deeper into my faith so I am gonna make it a point to read books that will help me with that. I finally made it to church yesterday and I felt really good about that. I am going to start going every week. I used to be really into my faith but I feel as I have let my intellect take over and you know what? I am at the end of my rope. I can’t do this all by myself. I need God to take over and steer me into a better place than I am now. I mean I am not in a bad place but I feel like I am in the middle of the ocean and I am treading water and I am TIRED AND I am slowly going under. I need God to come and put me in his boat and do the steering. I am willing to do whatever he wants me but he gotta take me there.

So I know you are wondering what I am reading next. Here they are

what i am reading week of june 4


I am in the middle of the Zombie Survival Guide. I needed escapist reading. It is my life jacket so to speak. I know zombies are a made up phenomenon and I am part of the zombie fandom so this is just what I needed. Then I was watching an Ellechat and she mentioned What is Best Next. It is a Christian productivity book. It talks about how we focus on doing a lot of things but not the RIGHT things that are why we always feel as if we did not get anything done. I am reading that on Scribd. Then I want to read Tools Of Titians. I bought it when it first came out and it has been just sitting on my Kindle. It is almost 600 pages so that will take up a big chunk of my week.

Tell me in the comments what you are reading. I am always looking for recs!

Hi, Everybody!!

I actually read a book this week! Fervent By Priscilla Shirer. It made me think a lot about my own spiritual life. A review will be up this week.

I really need to get back into a routine. I had the perfect one for me before I tore the tendon in my foot. It seems recently I am all over the place and I have lost my focus. I really need to get it back.

It finally warmed up here in Cleveland and I have been enjoying reading outside. Even though I only got to read one book I really enjoyed that book. I have big reading plans for this week though. I will post about that tomorrow.

When you are reading this I will be in church. Yes, Fervent touched me so much that I am getting my butt back to church. I haven’t been in months so it will be an experience. I used to go every week but it seemed that I lost the motivation to actually get up and go. I did find myself spiraling into the dark abyss of depression but My shrink upped my meds and now I am better. So now I have the motivation to actually get up and do stuff besides eating pizza and watch panda videos. Nothing wrong with that but when that ALL you have the motivation to do and you are trying to get your writing biz off the ground then you need help.

It is not often that a book touches me THAT much but it got me thinking that maybe just MAYBE part of the problem is that Satan is trying to sabotage me and I need all the help I can get to fight him off. So off to church I go.

I had a visit to the audiologist on Thursday. My word recognition is up to 70 percent! It was 60 last year and now it is at 70. I was HOPING for at least an 80 but my Dr told me that for someone born Deaf that a 70 percent is almost unheard of so I should be really proud. I am still practicing for my July appointment though.

After church, I am gonna read  The Zombie Survival Guide.  I really need an escapist read at the moment and I am a part of the zombie fandom so I figured this book would be just what I needed. I know my hermity ways are not that good and I am trying to change them but as an extreme introvert, it is hard. I am fine online but when it comes to in-person meetings I feel like I usually totally bomb them.

Oh! I have finally discovered the joy that is Halo Top ice cream. I had heard about it in my weight watchers meeting but had not been able to find them. I was at the store beside my apartment and I was looking at the ice creams to see which one would do the least damage when I found they FINALLY started stocking Halo Top Ice cream. I almost cried with joy. They are only 6 Weight Watchers points for the whole thing!

Well, I am off to update my reading spreadsheet. I need to keep it updated so I can do best of the year lists in December.

review of queens of geeks

Posted May 25, 2017 by Hillary in Book Reviews / 0 Comments

I received this book for free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Three friends, two love stories, one convention: this fun, feminist love letter to geek culture is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.
"Full of irreverent humor and in-jokes, it’s geeky and funny, with a heavy dose of self-discovery. . . . . Seeing girls and women uplifting, protecting, and loving each other is extremely powerful especially in the context of fandom." Teen Vogue
"This is the geeky, queer book of our dreams." —SeventeenCharlie likes to stand out. She’s a vlogger and actress promoting her first movie at SupaCon, and this is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star Reese Ryan. When internet-famous cool-girl actress Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.
Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with her best guy friend Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about a fan contest for her favorite fandom, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, is an empowering novel for anyone who has ever felt that fandom is family.
Praise for Queens of Geek:
"Seeing girls and women uplifting, protecting, and loving each other is extremely powerful especially in the context of fandom. The book deals head on with issues of mental health, body shaming, sexuality, and internet celebrity, handling them with a delicate and skillful touch." —Teen Vogue
"This is the geeky, queer book of our dreams. . . . This fluffy, nerdy book is perfect for cosplayers and convention-lovers." —Seventeen"Jen Wilde's book about two best friends—one a bisexual young woman of color, the other a young [autistic] woman . . . dealing with anxiety—will be a favorite of anyone who is a fan of geek culture. . . . This fun book about fierce friendships gives voice to a group of diverse female characters who are so defined by so much more than just their mental health and sexuality." —Bustle
Queens of Geek is an emotional, lively story full of characters that leap off the page and slip their hands into yours, inviting you into a world where the geeks and nerds are royalty and fandom is court. Richly realized and defiantly affirming, Queens of Geek reminds us that adventures and romances aren't limited to archetypes but are, in fact, for all of us.” —Katherine Locke, author of Second Position, moderator of #GayYABookClub
"The characters’ diversity provides natural opportunities to explore a number of contemporary teen issues, including race, sexual orientation, feminism, and body image. Some of the most compelling chapters are told from the point of view of Taylor, who fears change, hates crowds, and is on the autism spectrum. . . . Part of Macmillan’s crowdsourced imprint, this celebration of geek culture and fandom promotes diversity and being true to oneself." —School Library Journal
"Queens of Geek is full of book and movie references and is a fun look at the fandom convention phenomena. Taylor's anxiety and experience with Asperger's are treated with sensitivity. . . . Queens of Geek is a fun, quick read that will appeal to romance readers and self-proclaimed geeks." —VOYA
Praise from the Swoon Reads community:
"[Queens of Geek] was an incredibly compelling read, just because it contained a storyline I ABSORBED, and characters so diverse they were a pleasure to read! . . . Mix that with the romance, self-discovery of self-worth, and all the geeky references, this made for a perfect read! I honestly couldn't put it down, reading late into the night to see what happened next! " —Zoie K, reader on SwoonReads.com
"I love how interesting the story was and how the author addressed the characters' diversity without glossing over it or making it all about that. . . . It reminded me a little of Fangirl." —Lizzie, reader on SwoonReads.com


When I first saw this on NetGalley I had no idea that it was gonna be such a huge hit in book blogging circles. All I saw was geek in the title and I was all like

fandoms and other nerdy things.

A girl with anxiety HEY THATS ME!!



And I was so overjoyed when I got approved for it. Then I forgot about it until I saw it popping up on alllll the book blogs and I looked on my kindle and I was all like I HAVE IT yay! So I started reading and this book..was…so..good. I read it all in one sitting.


Those of you who know me know that I suffer from anxiety. It can be debilitating at times and it is so infuriating when an author trivializes that actual disorder.  I have read a book where they make it seem if I just set my mind to it then I can overcome the attacks and that is just not true. Trust me no one WANTSan anxiety disorder. It is annoying and it can keep you from being truly happy


it is like you WANT to do things, like in the book she wanted to enter the fan contest to meet the author of her favorite book but her anxiety was so high that the very thought of it freaked her out. I can so relate to that, I mean sometimes I can’t even get up the gumption to leave my apartment. Like her, I also have to prepare for stuff. Like if a friend calls me up wanting to go out THAT VERY MINUTE well it ain’t happening.  Have to have at least 24 hours to mentally prepare me.


I loved all of the geeky stuff in it too. I am a big geek. Although my fandoms seem less cool than the people in the book. Like I am obsessed with Zombies. Anything Zombie and I want it. I even have the Zombie Couch to 5K thingie on my phone so I can pretend to be running for an actual reason than to mindless go nowhere on the treadmill. I could so relate to the comic thingie too I have only recently gotten into the whole Comic Scene but I love it. I used to even play games but I had to quit that or I would never get out of the apartment. Hours and hours I used to spend in the land of World of Warcraft.


I loved the diversity in this book. It is hard to find the book this well was written that has believable diversity in it. These were not just walking diagnoses but rather people that happened to HAVE anxiety and be on the autistic spectrum. They had a bi person in the book and it was so refreshing not to have the person be all like what is wrong with me but rather view it as a natural and normal part of who she was. I loved that.


This is going onto one of my top ten reads this year for sure. In fact, so far this is my favorite read this year. I hope the author writes more soon!

Hi, Everyone!!! I know I did a disappearing act again but was hard at work getting reading to launch my copywriting website! Head on over and let me know what you think!!

I am part of a group MasterMind and we were discussing which was better, Boardbooster or Tailwind and I had been using Boardbooster but then I thought to myself what if I could use Tailwind scheduler with Boardbooster looping function, would it help me grow faster? So I went and luckily I was eligible for a TailWind free trail again. Then I began hearing about the mysterious and it turns out elusive TailWind Tribes. I looked and looked and couldn’t find it so I contact the help chat thingie and the person told me that it is just in Alpha and it is missing a lot of functions including the ability to get in without someone INVITING you in. Well… I WANTED IN DAMNIT! So began the hunt for someone nice enough to extend me an invite. I finally found a person and now I have Tailwind Tribes!

I have just started playing around with it so I don’t have too much to say about it. It is supposedly like a secret group board that users can pick to pin to their “real” boards. Lucky for you I am a nice person (most of the time) and I created a new tribe for book bloggers, just click here to go join! You don’t need a need an active Tailwind subscription to join but if yu use the link you will get a free month of Tailwind Plus! So what are you waiting for? Come join me!

My new implant is sounding a lot more normal now. Thank the lort…I can’t tell you how horrifying it is to wake up from a tough surgery and then put the implant on and it is all like ahhhhhh…it sounds so fucked up!! WHYYYYY?!? Even with the audiologist assuring me it takes the brain time to get used to it that month between the activation and when it starts to sound pleasant is ab-so-luty horrifying. I mean can you imagine going through a 4-hour surgery then be in pain and it was all for nothing?? It is the stuff nightmares are made out of.

It may even top a ride on the HorrorBus

In book news, I finished Queens of Geeks and The Three Body Problem last week! I was so obsessed with the “Three Body Problem” that I wanted to read the rest of the series so I downloaded the other two books from Amazon. Forget saving money I NEEDED THOSE BOOKS!! I am faced with the question of no sleep til I know what the alien evil overlords do to humankind or do I stretch it out? #bookproblems

Speaking of stretching it out I am doing that with Nasty Gal on Netflix. There is nothing like seeing something for the first time. It is like magic. I know I could always go back and rewatch or maybe there will be a season two? But I am taking my time. I am using it as a reward for hard work. #REWARDS
