10 Things I Want For Christmas 2014

While the possibility of me receiving gifts this Christmas is slim because it has been a rough year for my family, my boyfriend, and my friends.

Still a girl can dream about what should would like for Christmas.

Here is my list of things I want for Christmas:

1.) Old World Journal-  I love writing and I love vintage maps, so for me this is a win win.

2.) Jane Austen Literary Mug – I love Jane Austen and I love drinking Tea. This is perfect for me :)

3.) Aluminium Assassin’s Creed Pendant - I love the game and would love to be able to wear this.

4.) I Blog Because Pillow- this pillow is fantastic.

Too Excited for Star Wars

My reaction when I saw the new Star Wars trailer

tumblr_ngjagb5rQu1r2pp2to1_500

As a result of seeing the trailer I have a few questions & thoughts that I am sure many others have thought of and may have answered already.

My Observations:

  1. We know that there is black man playing as one of the storm troopers and since we know from the prequel trilogy that the clone troopers were originally clones that weren’t black.
  2. I swear I heard the same spy droid you hear in Star Wars V while they gang was on Hoth.
  3. I don’t think that droid is attached to a soccer ball. Although that would be really cool.
  4. Those new guns look awesome!
  5. That’s a badass lightsaber.
  6. The Millennium Falcon is back!

 

Questions as a Result of My Observations

  1. -What is the lifespan of a clone? If they are able to survive all those battles?
  2. When did that alien race stop producing those clones?
  3. How long has The Empire been hiring people to be clone troopers?
  4. Is the Empire still in control?
  5. If so, who is in charge?
  6. Why is that Cloontrooper freaking out and looking panicked?
  7. Who is after him?
  8. Why is that droid chilling on a soccer ball?
  9. Who are those group of stormtroopers after?
  10. Will those new guns help them have better aim?
  11. Who is that girl?
  12. Is she related to Luke Skywalker? (Please let this be so!)
  13. Is she on Tattoine?
  14. If not what planet is she on?
  15. Who is in the X-Wings?
  16. Who are the pilots in the X-wings fighting?
  17. Who are they about to fight?
  18. Is it the empire?
  19. Is that the  new Sith?
  20. What’s his/her name?
  21. His history?
  22. Is Han Solo piloting it in that moment?
  23. If not, who?

I don’t know what to expect from this movie, but I would love to hear theories about it.

What did you think of the trailer? What are your thoughts?

Fav Holiday Songs

My 5 Favorite Holiday Songs

I love this time of year. Although it has been a little more challenging this year to get into the holiday spirit because of everything that has gone on the past 4-5 months. Still here are my favorite 5 songs that get me into the Christmas Spirit.

1.) Hey Santa By Carnie and Wendy Wilson

Strangely this was one of the first Christmas songs I fell in love with. This song is sung by Carnie and Wendy Wilson. When I was younger I even choreographed a dance to go along with it. I still remember part of that dance too and it’s been over 1102

2.) Anything Mannheim Steamroller

For as long as I can remember I grew up listening to Mannheim Steamroller around Christmas time and honestly it doesn’t feel like Christmas unless I’m listening to it. I even had a chance to go to a concert they had while I was in Chattanooga.

I’m Back, Let’s Party.

Seems like I have been gone forever, huh? Well guess what: grab a glass of wine, a party hat, and get ready for a story.

If you read this post you will know I have been dealing with a lot, including the death of our family dog, who we had for 15 years.

Where have I been? Dealing with a lot of stuff: being sick, family dealing with medical issues, and things breaking down around the house. Sine my family is more private than I when it comes to this kind of thing, we are going to stick with talking about me.

At the beginning of November the pain in my back returned, not as strong as it was the last time. Went to the ER and while there was told that my kidney infection had most likely returned. Well it turns out it wasn’t a kidney infection, although at this time I am unsure what the cause is.

My trip to the ER alone was not fun. Once I was in and went through the whole ‘when was your last period? Are you pregnant?’ questions, I was than wheeled into the ER. The nurse who was in charge of the IV did a horrible job sticking the needle into me, there was just enough of a hole for blood to pool around. Having been in hospitals enough times and having been around them thanks to my dad, I knew that she wasn’t doing the best job.

After having to give blood, which I have never had a problem with until that night, she gave me drugs for the pain through the IV. They were pretty nice drugs, but at first it felt awful. Those who live with chronic anxiety can understand this; I felt this rush throughout my body as though I was experiencing an instant panic attack. I hadn’t felt one this strong in a long time, I felt like I was going to hyperventilate and pass out. This was a result of the instant adrenaline rush that was sent throughout my body. Following that, I felt very out of it, as though my head was fuzzy and lifting off the pillow. Only closing my eyes helped alleviate the sensation.

My Favorite Halloween Candy

I know Halloween is over, but I can’t help but eat candy as I try to get through NaNoWrimo. Yes I am participating in that this year.

Although I don’t go trick or treating anymore, I still enjoy dressing up in costumes seeing all the other decorations and costumes that people wear, and of course eating candy.

This is a small list of the candy I looked forward to every Halloween:

1.) Crunch Bars

I love these crunch bars. I don’t know what it is about the combination of the crisped rice and chocolate, but I love that crunch! (Did not do that on purpose)

2.) 100 Grand Bars

These were always rare to find in my halloween bag when I was younger, but when I did find them they were usually the first to go. Only after would I be filled with regret and wish that I had saved it for last and promise myself to wait to eat it last in the future. I would of course break that promise and remake it every time this occurred.

3.) Skittles

I used to love getting skittles, until they changed the green flavor from lime to green apple. I still am sore about that and have issues as a result. I loved combining lemon and lime for an awesome flavor. For me, this change still upsets me. I know it is in the Darkside pack. Don’t care. I want it back in the original.

4.) Reese’s

A combination of peanut and chocolate. What is not to love? Unless you are allergic of course…

5.) Kit Kat bars
