I saw this Fantasy Fun Tag a while back and really liked the questions. I hadn’t heard them or heard them put quiet like this before. So I thought I would give it a try. The original creator of the tag is on Youtube at: A World of Words
Every time Spring rolls around I decide I’ve somehow developed a green thumb and surround myself with flowers and succulents and things that grow. This April was really no different. I’m finishing off my herb garden (which is really just a shelf) but hoping for the best with keeping them alive!
This tag was created by Emmmasbooks on Youtube. It was originally for books but I pretty much did the same thing writing out some of my favorite television characters and pulling them from a mug and let me tell you… I’m a pretty good matchmaker.
Or perhaps I should have picked some characters that I don’t like.

Roxane Gay has been one of those writers where I’m always like, “I really want to but maybe next time…” When I finally actually looked at Bad Feminist and saw it was a lot about culture and pop culture I jumped at the chance to read it. I’m very much interested in the ways pop culture reflects the state of our world and the way we react to it.
Needless to say there was a lot in this book that I enjoyed.
“I don’t want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.”
I love reading all the quote posts that go around so I wanted to participate. Reading The Princess Diarist made me remember how much I loved Carrie Fisher’s writing and how easy it is to connect with her. So below are some of my all time favorites and like a lot of great quotes many of them have found me just when I needed to hear them.
So I read Unearthed recently about two teenagers on another planet in a race to solve the puzzle left by an alien race and either save or doom Earth. It was an okay book but it made me really want to take up xenoarcheology. Basically studying alien races which would be one of those jobs that where super dull until they were super world-ending exciting.
It also made me think of all the other things I wanted to do after reading about them in books…
It Happened One Night
Directed By: Frank Capra
Ellie Andrews decides to run away from her domineering father to meet up with the man she loves in New York. While on the way there she winds up with Clark Gable, a down on his luck reporter, and a series of problems that keep them together longer than they would have expected.
This was my first pick for the Blind Spot Series and a movie I’ve really wanted to watch for a while.
Seeing as how it’s a New Year and movie award season I’m going to try to participate in the Blind Spot Series hosted by The Matinee blog I’ve read this series on several blogs for at least a year now and I really want to push myself to see more films that have fallen by the wayside.
So I hope that I can manage one a month! Below are my choices for the year:
