Spoilers! Life (& Blog) Update

Hey y’all! I wanted to take the time today to do a small life update post as well as tell you what’s coming to the blog for the rest of the year. I recently went over my mid year resolutions check in so I thought I’d write this little life (and blog) update too.

Things have been changing since my last immigration post, and by changing I mean all good things are happening! I have some news on Alec’s green card, day-to-day life, our wedding shower in May, and more. You’ll be getting a cute little update on our story in July, and then one more update sometime after October to conclude our immigration journey.  October is the month of our “big” wedding, and January should bring our much anticipated honeymoon.

Father’s Day is this weekend in case you needed a reminder (here it is!). I thought this 5FF prompt was perfect for today! There’s so many fictional dads out there that truly are my favorites. I decided to pick five fathers that really embody the “best” dad. From anime to Disney, here are my favorite fictional dads!

While I no longer have an hour long commute, I still listen to podcasts and audiobooks on the way to work and on the way home. Recently, Alec and I took a ten hour trip back to my hometown for our wedding shower. We literally went through the entire playlist for the Tales podcast, and it was glorious. I thought today would be a good day to share some of my favorite podcasts (and a YouTube channel) with you guys! Continue reading “5FF: Favorite Podcasts”

CrapPile is blog that I just recently started following. John has quite an opinion on a lot of things which is something I can appreciate. His recent post on the Star Wars prequels caught my eye. As someone who loves the prequels (and even named her dog after Padme Amidala), I enjoyed reading what John had to say.

I’m a huge fan of the blog The Time Ladies and its many writers. Thoughts on Regeneration: A Trans Perspective immediately drew me. Emma is a phenomenal writer and reading her post brought tears to my eyes; it’s a worthy read for anyone and everyone.

Asiana Circus is another new blog I’ve added to my Reader! Like Jella, I found a place to call my own within anime. I also suffer from anxiety, and two of the anime shows mentioned were my escape: InuYasha and Ouran High School Host Club. Check out her list on Top Anime Shows that Help Fight Depression and Anxiety.
