February Book Report

A shorter month, but that does not mean less books! With the trips to Denver and Vegas I took this month, I had plenty of time to kill in airports and hotels, which I did by reading. Once again, I am so grateful for my new Kindle! It’s small, compact, and long-lasting battery. It’s been great for travel.

January Book Report

New Year, new reading challenge! While I started off strong, my book-reading tapered off towards the end of the month. I got kiiind of absorbed in phone games, rediscovering my love for Candy Crush and finding a new obsession with Wordle. My goal next month is to read when I get the urge to game or watch Youtube!

December Book Report

This month I tried to continue to read books instead of go on social media. I wasn’t as successful as last month (re-downloaded some social media apps, eek), but I still read a good number of them. I also started a bunch of books but didn’t end up finishing them, so you’ll probably see them next month! Here’s what I’ve finished so far:

November Book Report

This month I read a lot of books! What motivated me was to scroll less on social media, and to read more books during that time instead. I also started listening to more audiobooks while going on walks and doing chores. Finally, I joined our neighborhood book club which motivated me to read even more! As a result, I consumed a LOT of books, which I’ll share with the following rating system:

What I Learned from The Home Edit

Have any of you ever seen or heard of The Home Edit? They’re a badass team of (female-led!) organizing experts that completely transform people’s homes. My friend Justine gave me their book a while ago and while I loved reading it, my obsession with The Home Edit (THE) didn’t fully kick in until I watched their Netflix show: Get Organized with The Home Edit.

Recent Podcasts I've Enjoyed

I’ve had a lot of time to listen to podcasts while moving into our new home and painting the walls of our media room! I got a good chunk of listening in this weekend as I spent hours painting the room. Here are a couple of episodes that I recently listened to and enjoyed:

NZXT H510 Elite PC Build

Last summer during the height of the pandemic, I decided to upgrade my entire office setup since it looked like I’d be working from home for a while. One of those things was my computer, which used to be a 2013 Macbook Pro. It was definitely due for an upgrade! I looked into getting an iMac, which I actually did - then promptly returned it after finding out it wouldn’t be able to double as a second monitor (seriously, who at Apple made that stupid decision?!). My setup needed to switch seamlessly between work and personal use. As a result, after much research (and YouTube videos), I decided to build my own PC for the same price I’d pay for an iMac, only better.

New Cozy Game to Try: Spiritfarer

I recently discovered this genre called “cozy games” that are aesthetic and relaxing video games. These are just the kind of games I look for and enjoy playing! Anything that gets my heart rate up and hands sweaty (even Mario Party) make me feel incredibly amped up and anxious. That is the opposite of what I want to feel when playing games, lol. Low stakes, non-competitive games only for me, please.

First Impressions: Parks Board Game

After a nice long drought of not buying any new board games, last week I snagged a copy of PARKS on sale. PARKS has been on my board game wishlist since last year. Its incredible artwork drew me in, for sure! Over the weekend HB and I tried out this new game and here are my first impressions.

Revisiting Stardew Valley

With the Stardew Valley board game coming out, my interest in the game has renewed! I actually bought the computer game a while ago. Its cute graphics and relaxing farming theme highly appealed to me.
