Finished #5: Work In Progress #2

Hey Gang!

It’s a brand new year, and I wanted to start it up with a new knitting project. I finished out last year knitting from patterns that were classified as novice. This year, I had decided that I wanted to not only keep learning how to read more difficult patterns, but also working my way through my yarn stash. I’m currently making my way through TwoofWands Lemon Drop Sweater. I fell in love as soon as I saw the pattern on Ravelry, and started working on it a couple of days later, because the pattern calls for 5 balls of Category 3 yarn. I didn’t have any that equaled that yardage, and be all the same color.

So I went with a variated yarn Bernat Pop in Lipstick on Your Collar, and I’m still on the bodice and have run out of that ball, so I went to a light pink yarn that was in my stash, I have no Idea where it came from, and I’ll finish the bodice with another ball of white yarn, also from my stash, and then I’ll figure out the color for the sleeves when we get there.

I’ve made some decent progress since this video. I’m on row 51 and working my way through. The pattern is pretty simple, all Stockinette with a few rows of yarn overs. Once I learned how to do that type of stitches, it was pretty much a breeze. Knitting calms me so, and with the last couple of weeks I had I could definitely use the break.

Novels #32: February PBR

Hey Gang!

January was a blur of novels!~ Although, I may not have read everything on my list, I definitely ran through quite a few books! In the Month of January, I finished 13 books! I definitely learned my lesson and made a smaller list of books for the month of February even though it didn’t occur to me that it was the shortest month of the year.

I’m re-watching Pretty Little Liars, and since I’ve watched it before and knowing everything that will happen, I thought it would be a good time to actually read the stories, maybe they’ll be different. Plus the library has the first two arcs on audio so when in Rome!

Here’s what I’m hoping to get through for February:

The Pretty Little Liars Series: 1 by Sara Shepard (Audio)

Catwoman: Soul Stealer by Sarah J. Maas (Audio)

WonderWoman: WarBringer by Leigh Bardugo (Audio)

I know You Know by Gilly MacMillan (Audio)

Jughead: The Hunger Vol. 1 by Frank Tieri

Lock and Mori by Heather W. Petty

Flawless by Sara Shepard (Pretty Little Liars #2) (Audio)

Magick and Mayhem by Sharon Pope

Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood

What are you planning on reading in February? Let’s chat about it on Twitter!

Novels #31: January Wrap UP

Hey Gang!

I was actually really worried that I wasn’t going to have a decent video for the month of January, but I definitely surprised myself. I may not have followed my January TBR, but I finished 14 novels in one month, and I’m pretty darn proud of that! I totally forgot that February is the shortest month of the year, so I may have to rework that list, but I’m hoping for the same amount of reads. I know its only the first month of the year, but I’m doing a good job sticking to my goal of doing a Youtube video every week, and to start filming my bookish thoughts.

Don’t forget to give me a like and subscribe, so you don’t miss anything!

2018 In Review + 2019 Goals

Hey Gang!

2019 is coming towards me like a speeding bullet and I am not at all ready. Are you ready for the new year? 2018 changed a lot of things for me. It showed me what I was capable of if I put my mind to it, what I could accomplish if I just tried something different. It also showed me that it was okay to not like something different if it wasn’t working for me. It’s okay, to know what works for you and to stick with what you are comfortable with. It’s even better and healthier for you to leave a situation which isn’t working for you or your mental health.

At the end of the day, it’s your health that is most important. What’s the point of having lots of money if you aren’t alive or healthy enough to spend it? I learned a very important life lesson from my unhappy situation, and I chose to be happy and leave it.

I want 2019 to be a year of creative growth and maturity for me. I want to do what I want, and spend time doing what makes me happy. 2019 will be the year of me for me. Exploring different avenues to finding the destination that will make me happiest. I feel like happiness is different for every person but for me, I think happiness is just doing what makes me happy, until… it doesn’t make me happy anymore. I know it doesn’t seem too profound, but for me it was definitely an eye opener.

I had a list of things I wanted to accomplish in 2018, here’s what I accomplished.

Getting 20 Bloglovin’ Followers, I ended up with 27 by the end of the year.

Getting 480 Instagram Followers, I ended up around 498/500, it’s been fluctuating for the last few days.

Making 3 costumes this year, I surpassed this goal by putting together 8 costumes for Halloween.

I generally surpass my tattoo goals every year, but this time I just hit it. My calf for my birthday, and my Clavicle for surviving 2018.

Goals for 2019

  1. I am fully focusing on my Youtube this year. My goal is 1 video/month, but I plan on doing one a week. I want to really grow my youtube, because I know I can make great content.

  2. I am beginning to shoot TFP and Book this year for Moriartie Studios. My Goal is one Paid shoot per month. If I can do that, then I can up it, and then I’d be able to do it full time, which is the dream, Obviously.

  3. I try not to focus on the numbers, I do like to try and hit a goal every year organically.

    A. Bloglovin’ 50 B. Instagram 500 C. Twitter 700 D. Twitch 20 E. Youtube 30 F. Facebook 70

  4. I want to make videos about my reading habits this year. I want to do Monthly PBR’s* and Wrapups.

  5. I want my studio to see the light of day this year. I’m planning for March, but I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.

  6. Cross off Two tattoos from my list.

Stop! Collaborate and Listen! VertPizzle and I Love Games!~

Hey Gang!~

I’ve been thinking that 2019 will be the year of creative things. I am committing myself to make more Youtube videos, at least one a month, but I’m hoping to survive Once a week. What better way to start a new year and a fresh start than with a collaboration?

VertPizzle contacted me over Instagram at the beginning of the year, about a collaboration, and I was thrilled, but I wasn’t sure what we should talk about, after like two weeks of deliberation, we decided to list our top 10 favorite games! He gets 5 and I get 5. We decided that this would be perfect, since we talk about a variety of different games, and it would be interesting to a bunch of people instead of just those who are interested in either of our channels.

What are your favorite games of 2018? Leave em below so I can check em out!
