July Currently…

So it’s been awhile, I don’t know what to say other than I have just been out of it a bit. I have so many ideas, and have taken so many pictures/videos but just haven’t been able to really sit down and do much. However I do want to share some of my currents, so here we go. 

Doing:

So I’ve been busy being out and about with the family since it’s summer and we’re trying to soak up all the sun we can. I made it to the beach, but it was late so I couldn’t go swimming. I hope that will change soon. I have also been busy finally trying to launch our chapter of Geek Girl Brunch. This is super exciting since I’ve been trying for awhile now, and have just not been able to for various reasons. 

TV:

I’m working through a few shows including OITNB, Preacher, Fear of the Walking Dead, Psych (rewatching), and Mr. Robot just to name a few. 

Gaming:

I have been playing more games, which is making me happy and have even began streaming on Twitch. Feel free to check me out if you’d like, drop by and say hi if you see me around: Mermaid Kisses on Twitch. I only have one video up due to the fact that I didn’t realize I hadn’t selected the option to archive my streams. I’ll have another post going into more detail on the games I’ve been playing.

Reading:

I’m so behind on reading, I have two books to finish and review. I should have those up by the end of the month, early August. 

General:

Overall I’m just kinda out of sorts and I don’t really know why. It’s weird. I have no motivation, but I have been keeping up with walking/jogging on my days off, and other self care things. I see myself slipping into depression again a bit, but the usual stuff that helps isn’t really cutting it. I do have some time off scheduled in the next few weeks and I’m hoping this will help. 

Some good news, me and the familia were able to secure our tickets for NYCC. It was so stressful, and at first I thought we would be out a ticket. Thankfully for online friends, someone helped me out and we were able to secure the last ticket we needed (max # of tickets you can buy is 4, and my family is 5). So I’m excited to have that out the way, and know we’re in. 
So that’s it in a nutshell. I hope to get back into the swing of things, and finally get around to posting both here and on my YouTube channel, along with more streams on Twitch. 

What are some of your currents?


Just wanted to share this because after this past week’s madness I think we all need some good vibes. Take care of yourselves, and be safe.


Xoxo,

Desiree

Hello June

Goals and current obsessions for June.

I know we’re like almost halfway into June but I still wanted to share some of the things currently occupying my time, along with some goals. So here we go.


TV: 

I’ve been trying to catch up on all the shows I missed during school. Finally caught up on The Walking Dead and OITNB. I started Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D and I’m really enjoying it. I also started and I’m caught up with Sherlock, so good! I’m going to be moving onto Fear of the Walking Dead, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Agent Carter, and hopefully finally diving into Doctor Who. I’m also currently staying up to date with Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Preacher.

Games:

I started playing WOW last month and have been enjoying it. I went on my first raid with my brother and I think I did pretty good. I also started playing Guild Wars 2 after hearing the gals over on Fake Goth Girls podcast rave about it. I’m still pretty new to it and I’m not entirely sure I’m doing it right, but I like it and will be sticking with it. And of course I’m playing Overwatch on PS4 and having loads of fun with it. Currently I enjoy playing as D.Va and Tracer.

Music:

Besides Hamilton, I’ve been listening to just different streams and Beyonce’s Lemonade. It’s so so good, and I can’t get enough of the visuals. If you have yet to watch the video/film, please do. The images, the poetry in between, so many beautiful strong women, check it out when you have time to pay attention to it all. I think I may have heard the album, like 100x and still every time Sandcastles comes on the tears start to flow. When Bey’s voice hits that one note and it kinda cracks, Lord it hits my feelings for so many reasons.  Sorry is just that song to throw on those days you feel like you’ve had about enough, and bounce around with your middle fingers up.

Goals

On to some June Goals:

  • Get to the beach at least 2x. Y’all know summer is my season, and I’m ready to feel the sand in my toes and smell the ocean.
  • Content, content, content. Just trying to get as much queued before August rolls around and school is back in session. So far I’ve been able to put out posts on a weekly basis, so that’s good.
  • Edit and upload more frequently to my Youtube channel. I have so much footage, including form my trip to Puerto Rico, but just haven’t really gotten around to editing.
  • Try to workout 2x a week. I’ll tell you right now, I’m already failing at this. Let’s see if I can make it up somehow.

 

What are some of the things you’re currently into? Do you have goals for June? 

Why I’m Loving T Pain on Twitch

T Pain on Twitch is one of the most entertaining streamers I’ve seen.

So if you’ve been on Twitter you may have heard that T Pain was streaming on Twitch. At first I was like okay, no biggie, but then I was intrigued to go watch.

Watch live video from tpain on www.twitch.tv

Guess what? I was pleased with what I saw and heard. I think it’s just refreshing to see superstars be everyday people like you and me. Now I’m fully aware that many of the rich and famous play video games, however seeing it first hand is pretty awesome. As I watched and heard some of his comments, he became more like one of us. When he says at one point he was proud to have killed an opponent on Overwatch, I thought to myself that’s how I feel too when I finally eliminate someone. Check out video of his stream and see for yourself what the hype is about (you have to get about 7 or so minutes in before he appears). Currently his game of choice seems to be Overwatch on PC, but he’s also played Doom.

Not sure how long this will last, or how frequent it will be. What I am sure of is that as long as he’s streaming, I’ll pop in and watch when I can. He’s commentary and peppering in of vocals (and yes he has a set of pipes) is everything. I’m here for gamer T Pain.

I’m Mermaidkisses on Twitch, as of now I have yet to stream, but plan to one day. Are you one Twitch? Let’s follow each other. If you don’t stream who are some of your favorite streamers? 

XOXO,

Hola December

Hi gals and guys. I’m back, sorta. The past month and a half have been hectic here. Unfortunately my blog has suffered because of it. Things are starting to settle down and school will be finishing up soon. So that means I should be able to get a regular posting schedule going again. In the meantime lets go ahead and welcome the new month.

Hola December, you’ve made your way around pretty quickly. It seems this year went by flying, but then again as I get older it seems times speeds up. Anywho, here are some of my goals and things I’m looking forward to in December.

End of another semester: I can’t say this semester has been bad per say, but it’s getting tougher and tougher. Coming to another end of a semester means I’m one step closer to my overall goal. So yay!!

Christmas: I love Christmas for so many reasons. The best feeling is the one I get when my kids open up their gifts and their faces light up. This year is more special because it’s Squish’s 1st Christmas. He’s only 9 months so he can’t understand but he’s my gift and I’m excited and thankful for the addition to our family.

Holiday Cards: I love snail mail and I love receiving all types of holiday cards from my friends all over the world. Speaking of I need to get going with mailing mine out.

Dana Linn Bailey: As mentioned in a prior post DLB is such an inspiration to me. I just love her, she’s such a positive lady. Well I get to go meet her AND workout with her at her gym!!! I can’t even contain myself.

Gym Time: I’ve been doing ok when it comes to going to the gym, but with school coming to an end I get to go more often.

The Evil Within: I finally picked this game up and can’t wait to play it. Everyone I know whose played it has given it good reviews.

Planning My Trip to California: I’m currently planning a trip to California in January, still trying to work out dates. I’m going to visit my dad, it’s been too long since I’ve last seen him. It’ll just be me and Squish so I’m sad I’ll be leaving the other kiddos and the Mr behind but they can’t miss school. I’ll be in the SoCal, LA area so any suggestions for things to see, do, and places to eat are welcomed.

There’s so much more going on in December but I just can’t think of everything now. My brain is a bit fried from all the studying.

What are some of the things you’re looking forward to in December?
