BLOGMAS PROMPT: Traveling for the Holidays

Day 2 of Blogmas and I am already resorting to some prompts I found on Google. This is going to be intersting.

I saw the prompt about traveling for the holidays and figured I would give this my best go – since this is my first time actually having to travel for the holiday season.

NEWS: Support on Patreon!

I am way to proud of those Photoshop skills I managed to do for this image

Following in the footsteps of many other bloggers out there, I have decided to try and launch a Patreon!

Patreon for those who don’t know is a platform where the followers of creators can pledge money directly to their favorite creators to help them create content. In return, the amount you pledge earns you rewards from the creator.

For example; I pledge to The Hillywood Show, The Try Guys, Normal Happenings, and dePepi because they are creators that I LOVE and want to help out so they can make their dreams come true (essentially).

I may not have the following of some other people – but everything will help. I am creating my page to help me keep on doing reviews of things – every cent helps and will go towards games and movies to review and my Netflix and Hulu bills cause that’s where I pull a lot of my stuff from lately.

My teirs range from $1 to $50 with rewards getting higher and higher for every step.

If you are interested in checking out my page, click the image below and if you feel so inclined to do so, pledge some dollars. Every pledge gets you put on the Awesome Pawsome page (which hasnt been created yet but once I get someone IT WILL BE).

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’ve been battling with this post in my mind for a while because I didn’t want to publish it, have my family read it and then worry everyone. But I think it’s time for me to open up about how I’ve been feeling since moving to Florida.

Spoiler alert: it’s actually all positive stuff.

To NaNoWriMo or to not NaNoWriMo

I’ve been checking my email every day (as one does) and seeing an influx of emails that make my insides warm and fuzzy. They also make me panic and my brain goes into over drive of “TO DO OR NOT TO DO?” and I ultimately end up freaking out and stressing myself out for no reason.

The Origin Story

Inspired by Normal Happening’s Daily Inkling from September 2018.

I have a very hard time with coming up with things to post about, as many people probably know. Sometimes I’ll feel incredibly inspired to write something, and other times I won’t. I’ve been struggling with coming up with ideas that stay within my ‘niche’ so to speak, rather than just writing about things that I want to write about like I should be doing.

Long rambling short, I’m hoping this will help me feel better about myself. I’m going to describe what my though process was when picking the name Nerd Side of Life.

Notice Anything?

Hello everyone! Now that things have settled and we’re actually into October, I can come back on again and get back into the swing of things slowly but surely.

Now you may have noticed that there are a few changes…. one of them being that there’s a new layout on the site. But that’s not all….

Life changes: I am MOVING!!

Well, well. There will be another short little hiatus on this blog, but this time actually intentional. As many of you know, I’ve been trying to find a job in my occupation (film/video/television) since I graduated in May.

After months and interviews, I finally landed a job! ….. in FLORIDA!!!!

I am so so happy for this next step in my life and this amazing job and move would not be possible without my lovely roommate’s family for letting me live with them for pretty much nothing. (Despite my protests – I have offered to pay for things but they are refusing).

With that being said, it saddens me that I do have to drop out of RAW Providence, as it is the same weekend that I will be driving down to Florida with my mom.

Luckily though I finished my post for the Game that Define Us a while ago so I will still be in the clear for that. I was gonna add on to it, however I don’t think that will be possible anymore.

I am going to attempt to document as much of it as possible on my Youtube channel, but we’ll see how that goes.

Anyways, now that I’ve just announced it, I’ll leave how I’m feeling in the next couple posts. I don’t want to ramble for to long and make this post messier than what it already is.

See you next post!
