Organize Your Life with a Private Discord Server in 5 Steps!

Y’all. I stumbled across this TikTok that was like “make a private discord server to organize your life” and I had to do a double-triple take. How did I not think of this myself?! I don’t know about you, but my bookmarks, Etsy favorites, Pins, and lists get lost or disappear into the ether. As we speak, I am still looking for something I could have sworn I favorited on Etsy. And how many times has a pin been taken down and the link is lost to you forever? Too many if you ask me! Why is this post so high energy? I’m just excited to pass this on to someone who is as (sometimes) disorganized and as easily distracted as myself. I needed a space to collect all of these links, posts, and word dumps other than a million notes on my iPhone and Google Drive. The answer was this private Discord server brought to you by none other than TikTok.

#GeekDis: My 3 Favorite Characters with PTSD in Pop Culture (and What They Get Right)

As a part of GeekDis, a creative collaboration to shine a light on disability representation in pop culture, I am bringing you my three favorite characters with PTSD to talk about what the writers got right. PTSD, or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, is a mental health condition that is triggered by experiencing or witnessing a life-threatening event. PTSD is not something that only affects soldiers. It can affect you; it can affect anyone. It affects me. I knew GeekDis was the perfect opportunity to finally talk about some of my favorite characters who also suffer from PTSD as well as discuss what the writers got right about PTSD and how it affects us.

A Cottagecore Dream Come True? Sims 4: Cottage Living Review

Despite loving the Sims 4 and regularly making Sims 4 YouTube videos, I have yet to write any pack reviews on the blog! Shame on me. I have plans for some future pack reviews that involve the older Sims 4 expansions, game packs, stuff packs and kits, but today I’m reviewing the latest expansion pack to hit EA’s website: Cottage Living.

Spoilers! A Life Update: Mental Health, Pups, (secret) Future Blog Plans

Hello readers and fellow bloggers,

I had a different post that was slotted for today, but unfortunately, I don’t have the spoons to write it. Rather than post something half-assed, I decided I could do a little life update. I used to do these monthly for my patrons when I had a Patreon so I thought it would be fun to revisit this format for the blog! Maybe I’ll do these more often… We’ll see haha.

Guess Who’s Back? (mostly)

Hello again readers and fellow bloggers,

I am (mostly) back from my hiatus. I think this is the longest purposeful break I have had from my blog in recent years. While it was never something I wanted to do, it was very much needed. Most of the issues from my hiatus announcement post have been resolved or are at least manageable now.

How to Create a Cute Office Snack Cart

@meggsngrits

Finally decorated my snack cart! Stickers by MindSpeaks (Etsy) and AGeekGirlsTees (website). #sailormoon #snackcart #animesticker #geekygal

♬ Sailor Moon – Theme – Coded Channel

So why a snack cart you may ask? Well other than just not being able to get enough of the video trend, I found myself stuck in my upstairs home office practically starving from skipping meals! I would get off of work in the afternoon, head downstairs to the kitchen, and inhale anything that I could eat immediately like chips, cookies, etc. That behavior has really wrecked my eating habits and self confidence so I was looking for ways I could give myself easy access to healthy foods and snacks when I can’t get away from my desk for a proper meal. Enter: my Sailor Moon Snack Cart.

On YouTube: What I Wish I Knew Before Becoming a 3D Modeler

Hey y’all! Today I’m chatting about things I wish I knew before becoming a 3D Artist. If you aren’t familiar with my journey to becoming a 3D Modeler, you can check out my Hobby to Career video. I am taking things back to when I was first considering a career in Game Art and what I wish I knew before pursuing Game Art and 3D Modeling.

Spoilers! Mid Year-2021 Blog, YouTube + Personal Resolutions

Spoilers! Mid Year-2021 Blog, YouTube + Personal Resolutions

It’s that time of the year where I check in on all of the resolutions I made at the beginning of 2021! I like to do these mid-year refreshers to see what I need to continue working on and what is near accomplishment if it hasn’t already been completed. My recent haitus gave me a fresh perspective on my blog, YouTube channel, and my personal life. I’ve made great strides towards some of these resolutions, but others have fallen to the wayside (as they do sometimes), and that’s okay!
