Let’s Go to Hogwarts

Posted in Blogathon, Random

Blogathon Day 11: What is one place you’d love to travel to? Real or fictional.

Hogwarts, no contest! If Hogwarts was a legitimate place I’d love to go there. The castle itself is just so gorgeous on the outside, but the inside looks even more breath taking. I’d love to run around Hogwarts and explore some of my favorite places that I’ve read in the books and also seen in the movies.

I guess until I actually get my letter though, I’ll have to settle for experiencing Harry Potter at Universal.

All The Currents

Posted in Blogathon, Random

Blogathon Day 7: Your current (book you’re reading, show you’re watching, game you’re playing etc).

So for this post you technically don’t have to list all of your currents, but I thought it could be more interesting so here we go!

Current Book

I started reading The Magicians a few months ago after I watched the first season of the show on Netflix (season 2 is here now, highly recommend it) I’ve been reading it off and on (admittedly more off than on haha) but hoping to finish it soon. It’s basically a much darker version of Harry Potter.

Current Game(s)

So I’m always playing Overwatch and World of Warcraft, so I won’t count those since they have no real end 😛 Besides those two I’m playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey on the Nintendo Switch I recently purchased. I’m really enjoying both and I’m so glad that I bought a Switch! I keep swapping between both  games because I enjoy them both, if you decide to get a Switch they are a must have! I’m normally pretty bad about finishing a game fully, but I see myself finish both of these games this year.

Current Show(s)

I have a habit of watching several shows at once when it comes to Netflix and other streaming services, especially if a show has more than 3+ seasons. Currently on Amazon Prime I’m watching Monk (on season 4), I watched the show when it originally aired but it’s been a while and never really saw the first season nor do I remember how it ended so I wanted to check it out again. I also started watching the show Covert Affairs about a month or so ago, I’m also on season 4 of this show but I’ve never seen it before! It’s one of those shows I always wanted to watch when it aired, but I just never did.

So that is my currents! What is something that you’re currently doing this month?

Hello, 2018

Posted in Blogathon, Personal, Random

Blogathon Day 1: Do you have any New Year’s resolutions? What are they? If you don’t, why not?

I’ve never really been one to make New Year’s resolutions, mostly because I know it’s things I may not stick to but also because it’s things I want to do year round and make those decisions throughout the year and just every year when a new year starts. I did, however, make a video going over my 2018 Gaming Resolutions on my YouTube channel. Overall I just prefer to make goals … so here are some of mine for 2018!

  1. Weight loss. I lost about 35lbs in 2017 and I’d like to continue to lose more weight.
  2. Stay organized. I got into a fairly decent habit of using a planner and I’d like to continue to stick to it.
  3. To be happy. I realize this is a bit random, but I really want to focus on myself more this year and on the things that make me truly happy.
  4. Travel more. The only traveling I did in 2017 was when I moved in February, this year I’d like to take a proper vacation and do a bit of traveling even if it’s just a few cities over for a few nights.
  5. Blog more. I used to be so into blogging years ago and it quickly became something I just stopped doing. I love looking back at all of my old posts and seeing what I wrote about 5+ years ago, and I want to start documenting that stuff again.

Overall mine are pretty boring 😛 What are yours?

How I Made $135 Through Ebates

Posted in Random

Before I dive into this post I want to start off by saying this is NOT sponsored, everything mentioned here is from my own experience. So far I’ve made quite a bit of money just from shopping online (which I do anyways!), and I wanted to share it with others.

I signed up for Ebates back in 2011, but I hardly used it. Over the last year I’ve been using it a lot more. I even installed their extension for Google Chrome, so anytime I’m shopping online it reminds me to activate it to earn cash back. This was a huge issue for me and why I never used it, I always forgot about it, but since I’ve been so active with using it, I’m up to almost $135 lifetime cash back! They send payments every few months, so my checks this year have varied from $20 to even $50 depending on how much online shopping I did.

Since I am huge into planning and buying things at places like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, earning money for doing what I’m already doing (spending money) is wonderful! It’s seriously amazing. You can even install an app on your phone, which I’ve used here and there as well. My goal for 2018 is to try and use it more to see how much I’d truly make if I was actively using it for an entire year.
