A Few Thoughts Before the Year Is Over

First of all: thank you. Really. Every single person who read/followed/commented on this blog in any way is incredibly encouraging. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart (and also the top. And the middle. Just take the thanks, okay?).

Secondly: I hope you had a chicken-souper-de-dooper last year and may the next year be even better.

Finally: I wish to share with you this video from youtuber Olan Rogers, whom I had the pleasure of meeting back in August on his Seattle stop of the Eat a Slice tour. It was a four-hour drive to get to and worth every second. If you’re not interested in a breakdown of the tour (which is still pretty awesome) you can skip to the last few minutes for some sweet encouragement as you head into the new year:

{insert catchphrase here}, friends, and I’ll see you next year.

(Yeah, I know. But the next year jokes are pretty much required at this point).


Joyful Tidings

Merry Christmas or happy holidays to all of you. I sincerely hope you had a wonderful day and if not, may tomorrow be a better one.

Difficult Past Week

My grandfather, Marlin, passed away this last Thursday at the age of 82. Suffice to say, it may be a while before I update again. Sorry.


Four Finals Packed Into the Next Two Days

So you probably won’t hear much from me until Wednesday or Thursday. Sorry.

In the mean time here’s a goat doing a handstand to wash your sorrows away:

I’m Baaaa-aaack

Emphasis on the “baa.”


I know it’s a baad joke. Kind of like that one.

Holy nar what a month. Here’s a quick recap on what I did:

• Saw Thor: Dark World (also known as Thor 2: looks like marketing has finally figured out its target audience) and Catching Fire. Reviews will be coming

• Went on a crazy–punintentional but frankly unpuny trip to the darker realms of my mind.

• Wrote a novel (technically novella) which is so bad, it’s horrible. (Italicized for emphasis and obviousness).

• Posted many pictures of the Avengers. (No duh).

• Received a tiny squirrel coffee cup from a mildly secret santa.

• Contemplated life, the universe, and everything.

• Saw my family twice in two back-to-back weeks.

• Wrote four essays at the last possible minute, two of which were due on the same day.

• Began compilation on a ten minute power point presentation and ten page essay on the awesomeness of Mirror’s Edge. Not even joking right now.

• Immersed myself in far too many doge memes than is optimal or prudent.

suchno• And managed to not go on Tumblr for the entire month of November (woo) and then immediately over-indulge on Tumblr as soon as December rolled around (boo). Eight hours straight, people. I’m not even sure how it happened.

I’m not sure how to finish this post, so I think I’ll just tell you I’m off to eat a nutella sandwich.
