Blogathon Day 18: 3 Monthly goals for February (What are some of your bad habits?)
For today’s post I decided to use yesterday’s prompts since I changed it since it was my birthday! So here we go.
1. Being more active
I keep saying how I want to start running again, but I keep not doing it. Whether it’s joining a gym, going for a run, going for a walk, or just working out at home I’d like to be more active next month.
2. Eat better/meal prep more
I mentioned before that I lost about 35lbs last year and that I’d like to lose more this year. One way that I lost the weight was just by meal prepping and trying to eat a bit healthier.
3. Continue making content
Whether that’s updating this blog weekly, uploading weekly videos on YouTube, or streaming 5-6 days on Twitch I want to continue the grind in February!
What are some of your goals for next month?
For the entire month of January I’m participating in a Blogathon. All posts associated with it can be found under the Blogathon category.

Blogathon Day 12: Day in the Life (Original prompt Favorite thing to do to wind down?)
Was supposed to do a Day in the Life post a few days ago, but ended up not being able to so I decided to make that my prompt for today! So here’s how my day today went.
So the original plan was to wake up between 9-10am, but I ended up not falling asleep until after 5am. Oops. So after I (finally) woke up around 12pm (OOPS) I made lunch.
Started bowling some water (I didn’t realize how dirty the stove was … woops I promise I cleaned it after!). For lunch I was craving some good ‘ol boxed mac and cheese so I made that. I don’t eat it often, but today was a lazy-ish day. I originally planned on making a nice cup of coffee if I woke up early, but that didn’t happen. I decided to grab the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha that I had in the fridge instead!
Drank it out of my awesome Buffy mug. The mug changes with heat, but sadly I was in the mood for cold coffee that morning instead. Basically sipped on the coffee while I waited for my food to finish.
I’ve been eyeing the Nintendo Switch since it released earlier this year and I finally was able to purchase one thanks to money and giftcards I got for Christmas. Tuesday morning I woke up at 7am and drove to Target (had to actually drive to 2 locations before I was able to get one) and purchased the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as my first game. I had been planning on buying one possibly around Christmas time so I started doing research on what games to buy and accessories a week or so beforehand, so here’s what I got.
First up is a carrying case. What I like about this is that it has an area to hold all of my games (so far besides Zelda I also got Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8) and it also came with a screen protector which was really is to put on. When I’m not playing or charging the system, it’s pretty much always in this case. When I originally purchased it it came in blue, solid black, and red. I purchased mine from Amazon, here for $17.99.
Instead of using my usual gaming headset I wanted something that was much more portable. So I picked up these Zelda earbuds on ebay for $10! They fit perfectly in the case and the sound quality isn’t that bad. The exact seller I purchased them from doesn’t seem to have any currently, but there are other sellers currently selling them. You can also find them in most retail stores like Target, but I”m not sure about the price.
The final and probably my favorite accessory is the LED dock shield. It comes with 2 plates currently, Zelda and Mario but I’m hoping they’ll add more in the future. I really love the extra flair it adds to my desk. You can rotate between a variety of colors or just pick a single color (I personally like the fading rotation of the colors!). My only real complaint about it is that the protective blue film that was on both plates was really hard to take off but once you got it off you could really see how beautiful it looks! It was $15.99 on Amazon, can find it here.
Overall I’m really happy with the Nintendo Switch and the accessories I’ve purchased for it so far, I’m excited to see what games and other things Nintendo comes out for it in 2018. The only other accessory that I ordered that hasn’t arrived yet is a dock cover (for when I’m not using the LED one) which I purchased on Etsy.
Since I moved back in January 2017 I’ve been making my office my own over the last year. My gaming setup has definitely stepped up and I really love how it has come together. So here’s an office tour!
When you first step into my office, off to the left you see a bunch of paintings that I’ve done over the years as well as some World of Warcraft banners.
Closer look at the 3 tier shelf that I got from Michael’s. Has a bunch of pens, pencils, lipgloss/lipstick, extra cables, and more.
This is my DX racer chair in pink with a WoW blanket, Sailor Moon blanket, Hearthstone pillow, and Twitch pollow.
Here’s a look at my triple monitor setup with my Blue Yeti mic and other goodies.
