The Dangers of Social Media Part 2

Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines Social Media as: “Forms of electronic communication (such as websites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (such as videos).”

New Look

Since I have recovered from my bout of writers block and started writing again, I thought it would be a good idea to create a new look for the blog.

It didn’t take as long to find a theme that I thought fit me but what took longer was nitpicking over what I wanted my viewers to see and interact with. I hope that the new look gives you what you are looking for.

Hope you like the new look! 

If you have any questions or inquiries, please don’t hesitate to send me a message.

Thank you all so much for your continued dedication.

My next post will be a review over the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Special Edition PC version.

Stay tuned!

Is There A Light At The End Of The Tunnel?

Yes, there is.

My husband and I moved from my hometown almost a year and a half ago so that we could live with his parents (not as bad as you would think) and finish our degrees.

We got stuck in a loop in my hometown where we had good jobs (both store managers in retail), a rent house, and vehicles. Life was easy, it was comfortable.

Moving here has not been easy nor comfortable. I spent three months in what I can only describe as shock. I had never lived so far from my family, my friends, and my comfort zone. Everything I had ever experienced could not prepare me for those first three months. Eventually I accepted my new life.

However, life did not get easy or comfortable. It is simple to say that this past year and a half has been the most trying time of both my marriage and my adult life. Let me be the first to tell you that adulting really sucks sometimes.

We have struggled with our finances, with me not having a vehicle, our sanity since we aren’t alone, with going to school and balancing jobs on top of that. Life would be so much simpler if we could just go to school and not worry about holding down a job. These kids who go to school with no financial worries have no idea how good they have it. Seriously, you better love your mom and dad immensely.

After all of the struggle we have been through I can finally see the end of it.

Friday I spoke with my adviser and he informed me that I only need ten more hours to graduate. He enrolled me in the necessary courses. Not only am I at the end of my college experience but he also has helped me fix my resume. I can see the light so much clearer now.

In seven months I will purchase my first vehicle, right at eight months I will be graduating from college, and in some point in between that time I will be interviewing and getting my first out-of-college job.

The end is here and it isn’t the end of the world. I can get my sanity back, my comfort zone, and the easy life.

The struggles will continue for the next eight months but I am much happier taking on eight months rather than another year and a half.

I am ready to go out and live my life with my husband again.

Bring. It. On.

 

DEAR READERS

I know I have some pretty sporadic posts from time to time; I don’t keep to a specific trend with my blog. So I have a question, what would you like to see me write about more? Random thoughts I have (ranting or raving), social media, book/movie/video game stuff, my marriage or relationship stuff, opinion pieces,or something else entirely?

I would love some feedback and any advice that you could give me. I am all ears!

THE AWESOME SAUCE AWARD

So I may have a little bit of time on my hands but I want to start a new award. Recently my husband bestowed the Liebster Award to myself and my mother-in-law. I have seen many other bloggers participating in other various awards and having fun with it. Which brings me to my point, I want to start a blog award of my own!

Thus I have made The Awesome Sauce Award!

awesome sauce award

This award should be given to the bloggers that you think qualify to be Awesome Sauce! If you have never heard the term awesome sauce then you need to research or go hang out with a  fifteen-year old girl- or me :).

What IS the Awesome Sauce Award?

Well, this award goes out to all you peeps who write really well, have awesome pictures, or are just plain awesome! You can also award someone whose blog brings you peace or enjoyment.

This award is meant to encourage and boost happiness levels as well as confidence in each other as bloggers. We are a community of nerds, writers, and newbies!

Recently our Nation, and the world, seem to be in a state of despair and tragic circumstances. It is our job as writers and entertainers to provide some positivity to the world. So make sure when you are sharing your post that you also share it on all of your social media outlets. Let’s make the world positive for at least ONE day. Bring some happiness and awesomeness to your friends, family, and the world!
