Goodbye 2017!!

Reflecting on the year as a whole

This is my last post for 2017! Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it’s about to be 2018. It really is true, the older you get the faster time seems to move. And yes, I know I’m only 24.

I wanted to take some time to reflect on good ole 2017 for a moment. All the good and some of the bad. 2017 has been one of the biggest years for me to date.

In 2017 I was able to travel to more places than I would have ever imagined and I got to do it with my best friend by my side. We went to Illinois, Indy, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi and all over Ohio!

Mathew and I also had the pleasure of attending many cons during 2017 which is one of my favorite things to do with my free time.

I was able to make many new friends this year, strengthen relationships and let go of some other relationship, that last part sucked at the time but I’m (almost) okay with it now.

Unfortunately I almost lost my grandmother this year but she’s a strong, stubborn, fighter so thankfully we still have her with us. And she’s still living at home which is an even bigger blessing.

One of the biggest 2017 moments is that my divorce was finalized! It was such a huge and terrifying day but one I’m so glad to have had and have behind me.

2017 marked a new and big step in my career for me as I got a new job! My second full time job! Woo! And I absolutely love ever second of this new job. Plus I also opened NerdCentral13, my Etsy shop, this year! And I hit my goal of 10 sales in the first year! Yeah! Collinswoah’s Corner also got upgraded and hit it’s first birthday! Big milestones!

I bought my first car and love her to death. Her name is Vivian and she is my nerd-mobile.

I had many dark and troubling days this year but I got thought each and everyone of them. I won’t get into this too much as I want to keep this as happy as possible 🙂

Lastly, for those interested, my GameCube collection has grown tremendously. I am over my 30% goal for 2017 and actually have achieved 44.32% completion for 2017 which I am completely shocked by still.

I hope you all have had a great 2017. Here’s to an even better 2018!

Stay classy and sassy ❤

The Dreaded Day…

Musings about Mondays!

Hello and welcome back!

It’s the start of another week. The dreaded Monday…

Do you guys all dread Mondays? I actually don’t mind them anymore since switching jobs. It’s Sundays that I hate the most. Just because it means the end of the weekend, Mathew goes to work, one of us leaves (depending on who visited who) so I just don’t like them. Nope. Mondays I like though. Call me crazy if you must.

But hey. We all made it through. It’s Monday evening! Ha! Take that Monday!

You ever just think about your dreaded day of the week like some mid-level (or high-level, depending on your impending dread for it) boss? And you are the hero using everything you have in your arsenal to drain the boss and take it down. Like depending on your line of work, those are your weapons. So for me, I work in an office. On the computer all day. My computer skills are like my magic. Correct key strokes are charging up my spell making it stronger and stronger. And once I finish an item? That’s when I deliver my blow. Always causing way less damage than I thought I would. But it never stops me. I keep it up! But doing things like walking away from my desk on non-break times and texting are like the boss’ attacks back. Sometimes my defenses are strong and other times they’re weak. Working with my coworkers to find a solution to a problem (whether mine or someone else’s) is like a co-op moment where I called for help and help came, but only for a brief moment. So I work my way through my day delivering blow after blow slowly chipping away at the boss’ HP hoping I bring it to zero by my work day’s end.

Now that I say this anyone else ever think about your day this way? No? Yeah, me either…

Stay classy and sassy ❤
