What’s in My Schoolbag

Hello cupcakes. I’ve always been fascinated by what’s in my bag videos. It’s fun to see what other people carry, and if any of them have some of the dame things I do. So I decided to do a what’s in my schoolbag video since it is back to school times. I hope everyone enjoys it, and if you would like to see a regular what’s in my bag video let me know and I’ll be happy to do so. As always feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Potter Week

Hello cupcakes. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a big Harry Potter fan. I’ve read all the books and seen all the movies several times. I’ve shed tears of joy and sadness. And when we went to the Wizarding World a few years back I was in awe and could barely contain my excitement. Originally I meant for this post to go up yesterday for Harry and J.K.’ birthday (Happy Belated Birthday!!), but as you see that didn’t happen. However here I am ready to share two of my loves combined, Harry potter and Pops!

About 3 weeks ago Funko Pops released a line of Harry potter Pops and you know I had to go snatch them up. I’m still missing two of the currents that are out, Hermonie and Harry holding the sword. There are rumors of a Quidditch Harry being released this month and a Harry with the invisibility cloak in the future. I can’t wait for them all. In the meantime here’s a video I made with all the HP Pops I currently have. Enjoy!!

Potter week has me wanting to reread all the books. I may do so after I’m done with 2 books I’m working on now. If anyone is interested in reading along together let me know.

How did you celebrate Potter Week? What’s your favorite scene from the books/movies?

Thanks for stopping by. Please comment with any suggestions for upcoming videos you would like.

5 Fandom Friday: Gateway Fandoms That Made Me Who I Am Today

5-fandom-friday-338x250

Hello, the lovely gals over at The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick are hosting a link up every Friday called 5 Fandom Friday where they’ll have nerdy/geeky prompts for the upcoming couple of Fridays. I’m super excited to participate and read all the geeky things everyone’s into. Today’s 5 Fandom Friday: Gateway fandoms that made me who I am today.

 

1. Horror Movies

I grew up in the era of Nightmare on Elm Street,  Friday the 13th and all other fabulous horror flicks. I remember waking up and sneaking off to the living room to watch Night of the Living Dead, only to be scared to go back to sleep. I couldn’t get enough, I was hooked!! My love for horror/zombie flicks is carries on till this day. I do prefer the older horror flicks to the ones that come out now, but I’m always down to go watch the new releases.

2. The Little Mermaid

I was about 8 years old when this movie came out and I have been hooked on it and mermaids since. I wanted to be a part of Ariel’s world so bad. I then saw Splash a few years later and I was convinced that I would turn into a mermaid like Daryl Hannah and be able to live underwater. Needless to say that never happened but I’m still convinced I’m part mermaid.

3. Harry Potter

What can I say I’m a Potterhead through and through. From the minute I read the first book it was love. I waited what seemed like forever in between releases of the books and movies. Going to the Wizarding World was a dream come true. I’m pretty sure I was more excited than my kids were to be there. My middle son is just as into it as me and we often geek out together about all things HP. We can’t wait to go back to The Wizarding World and enjoy the new attractions that have been added.

4. Oregon Trail

Let me tell y’all about one of the first computer games I ever played, Oregon Trail. This game was the shizz. Everyone would try to finish their work as fast as possible to be able to get on and play. The game was basically you trying to get this covered wagon through the Oregon Trail. Oh but it wasn’t a ride downtown now, oh no you had to deal with 19th century hardships. Snake bites, trying to hunt bear/deer to eat, floods, people dying the whole nine yards. This was some exciting stuff, who would make it to the end with the least casualties, will your wheel break today, were you going to be able to cross the river?? I played for months on end.

5. X-Men Animated Series

So back in my day we didn’t have Cartoon Network and 24 hour cartoon channels. Cartoons were aired for about 1 or 2 after school Monday through Friday and all Saturday morning. Man did I look forward to Saturday mornings. One of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons was the X-Men. They were the coolest thing out there, I had no idea that mutants could be this rad. It was like my novela, I looked forward to every new episode and could not be bothered while it was on.

This was a fun stroll down memory lane. I’m looking forward to next week’s link up.

What are some of your favorite fandoms?
