Short And Sweet

This post is inspired by this Daily Inkling by Matt, which is inspired by a Twitter exchange between the two of us, and to keep it short and sweet but still relatively grammatically correct, I want everyone to know that Avengers Endgame is going to run for 3 hours and 2 minutes, and that I am considering buying adult diapers to get myself through it without having to get up and pee – not that I would anyway, because I have a camel bladder and my ass will not be leaving its seat until the lights in the theater come back on.

Dear Supernatural…

It took me a while to think of what to say. On March 22, 2019 Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins announced that after its 15th season, the hit show – my show – Supernatural would be coming to an end.

15 whole seasons (technically 14 at the moment), over 300 episodes. Everybody who’s a fan of the show knew that eventually this day would come. We just knew we weren’t going to be ready.

I didn’t even see the videos before finding out, one of my friends texted a group chat with me and another one of our friends asking us if we saw. Then I saw the tweets from the boys. And I don’t like being on my phone at work, but I was glued to my phone for a solid 30 minutes texting my friends and trying to cope with my feelings.

I am emotionally invested in this show. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. I was told ‘my condolences’ when I shared the link. It feels like I lost a part of my soul and I don’t know why.

This isn’t just any show, this is my show. So Supernatural, before you go, I have a few words to say.

All Aboard the Umbrella Academy Hype Train!

I can’t tell you the amount of times over the past few weeks that I was told to watch the Umbrella Academy. It seemed like everybody I talked to that knows me told me to watch it because ‘its right up your alley!’, which is weird and freaky shit. It came up in every conversation I had with my boyfriend since he finished watching it a coupe weeks ago.

Ladies and gents, on Tuesday March 19th, I finally caved. I bought myself a cheap (like $160, but on sale and compared to others it was good for me) TV after saving my pennies for a while, fully loaded with Amazon Fire TV already installed into the TV – all I had to do was install the apps that I wanted. I can’t watch things on my laptop, I get to distracted with everything else I can do on it, thus why it took me buying a TV to actually start watching it.

But that’s beside the point – I’m here to talk about the Umbrella Academy.

Why I’m Not a True Gamer

You guys know the drill by now. Inspired by this Daily Inkling. Thank you Matt. Blah blah blah. Eventually I’ll have motivation and inspiration to write a post that isn’t based off an Inkling. But until then, this is what we’re all gonna get.

I’ve been apart of two gaming collaborations thus far in my blogging career – The Games that Define Us, which I totally credit for literally success I’ve achieved thus far, and Tracking Shells which is coming this Thursday. However, there is a reason why you hardly see me speak about games other than the Pokemon post, a first impression of a Nintendo game like Smash, and a lot of Sims.

But other than that, you see nothing. Sure, I get excited about other games that come out for other consoles – i.e KINGDOM HEARTS – but I try to stay out of it because I don’t like to consider myself a gamer.

One Big Update Post

Half of this post is going to be inspired off of this Daily Inkling, (Do I really need to say where it’s from? If you know me, then you know where it’s from already. It’s by Matt. As always.) and the rest of it is an awesome update for Nerd Side of Life. Well, at least it’s awesome for me. I’m going to leave the website stuff up top and the more personal stuff below. (Look at me, trying new things)

First, thank you so much to everybody who has followed me – we’re at 56 followers now. I know it’s not a lot considering I’m buddies with people who have recently celebrated 500+ (go leave Megan some love cause she is that person), but it is a starting point to my goal of 200 by the end of 2019.

For once, this isn’t debuting a new look for the blog. This current theme will be staying for a long, long time. I like the color palette that I have going on right now and the way the theme looks.

However, I did do something I never thought I would do: I made the blog it’s own Instagram.

Social media promoting and remembering to share my posts is something that I am terrible at. I’ve been getting better at sharing it with two Facebook groups that I am apart of, Geek Blogs Unite and Geek Girls x Bloggers. I also share on a Discord server I’m apart of but that pretty much ends my promoting.

Obviously if I want to grow as a blog and get that following that I want (which is 200 by the end of the year – we’re just over 25% of the way there now) I need to remember to promote my blog. I feel like I am getting better at it at least on Facebook, so that’s a good thing.

Another slightly smaller update for website that still excites me is that I officially have an email!

Not like, my own email address. But like, the SITE has one.

So now if for any reason you need to email me things, is the way to go. I had my other website email address in (which is btw – it’s a portfolio and it needs updating) but I feel good about now Nerd Side of Life having one of its own.

If you want to read the personal stuff, take a look under the cut!
