Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone. The year is coming to a close. Jessica and I have a big announcement tomorrow for the blog. We will also be doing a channel update and a year in review post. But for now. Enjoy the holidays, everyone.

Family Game Night.

We’ve had a great family game night so no blog tonight. Tomorrow is of course Thanksgiving so who knows how that’ll go. Friday it’s back to work for Black Friday. Let the Holidays begin and the start of the Big Retail Season kick off.

Birthdays as an Adult Have Lost Their Magic

Maybe it is growing up. Maybe it is a change in prospective. But as you get older, birthdays lose their magic.

Today is my birthday. When people figured out I was working, everyone told me I should have asked off. My initial thought, why? I took Saturday off to go to a family Thanksgiving event. I have Wednesday and Thursday off. I would rather take today and get money than take today off.

I think a lot of working adults will understand that. My life isn’t stressful enough where I need this one night to unwind. I got Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes for my birthday. It will probably be next week before I play them (unless I randomly give in to the urge tonight). Even though I’m off, I’m still busy with family functions this week. I have an insurance inspector coming to look at my house tomorrow at 10am. I just got off work. I’ll probably spend the rest of the night rearranging my house for tomorrow and then go to bed.

My mom wanted me to take off work and spend the day with her. But it’s just not the same. People ask me what I want for my birthday, nothing comes to mind. It’s not that there aren’t things I want. It’s just I don’t spend the month leading up to it thinking about it like you do when you’re younger.

I’d be very interested to hear what you guys think about the matter. I bought the $1 Walmart mint chocolate cookies from Walmart as a treat to myself. Outside of that, today was a normal day. So make sure you sound down in the comments. I want to hear if this is something all adults eventually go through or not.

I Applied for My First Side Hustle!

Don’t get me wrong, I do love my job as I have alluded to in previous blogs. I get to put Pokemon cards online for my local hobby shop. Sadly, though, it just pays $10 an hour. Looking ahead to 2022, I have financial goals. I’d like to save more, make more, invest more and take two vacations. Greedy! I know!

However, I feel like my current job is only going to get me so far. Now, this new side hustle isn’t crazy money. But it is still money. It will allow me to make money when I’m off or have free time. That’s the exciting part.

Now I have applied and I’m just waiting to hear back. I’ll do an update blog whenever I figure out the verdict.

Sometimes Work Sucks

I have an awesome job at a hobby shop. I put cards online for a living. But lately there has been some real problems.

I won’t go into it because, while the blog is a collection of my personal thoughts, I don’t believe in airing somethings out. So I’m just hopping on here to vent not to do a tell all. This blog is coming out so close to midnight because a co-worker and I talked for two hours about things we wish we could do at the shop and things we wished we could change.

I have some blogs planned for later so hopefully tomorrow is back to regular content. Thank you guys and have a great day!

Seeing Eternals Tonight!

I had plans to do a Humble Bundle post today, but my day has been very choppy between a meeting and the movies. Meaning I didn’t have time to do a good write up on it. So hopefully that can be something I do tomorrow.

Anyway, tonight Jessica and I are going to see Eternals. So that’s today’s post. Again we will try to get back to regularly scheduled post tomorrow, lord willing.

Thinking Out Loud

I was going to start tracking my investing journey today on the blog or show off some comics I got today. However, when I got home I played Pokemon Emerald. Now I need to walk my dogs and get ready for bed so all those thoughts will have to wait until later. Got big things going on tomorrow though!

Sunday Was Rough…

Most of the time this blog is for entertainment as we review Mangas or talk video game news. However, the blog also serves as a journal sometimes as I track my highlights and lowlights. Last night was definitely a lowlight.

We rushed home to catch the Chiefs Bill’s NFL game. At halftime Jessica asked me where Elizabeth was. We couldn’t find her anywhere. So we went to her usual spot in the guest bedroom. Boy, we couldn’t have guessed what was waiting for us. We found Elizabeth, but it’s the where that’s mind-blowing. She was under our house.

The floor in the guest bedroom is caving in. She fell in somehow and got stuck. This house truly sucks and I don’t even think Jessica and I have really gone into detail about it. Well, either way I spent almost 6 hours trying to get her out and finally rescued her and was in bed by about 5:30am. It was miserable.

Yesterday was pretty rough. Our bodies haven’t recovered from it and there’s a lot of mental anguish as well with the housing market and our job situation. Wednesday will be a great day and we cannot wait to share some pretty big news with you guys.

So here’s to looking on the brightside. Stay tuned! Thanks for reading and have a great day!

It Is Nice to Get Out and Do Stuff

As discussed from yesterday, tonight Jessica and I went out with my dad and step-mom to go see the new James Bond 007 movie, No Time To Die. So this was back to back nights going to the movies. It is a nice feeling getting back out in the world and doing stuff again now that movies are returning. This was a small post today because of stuff I’ll be talking about next weekish.

Anyway, No Time to Die and Venom 2 were both great! I highly recommend either one if you’ve seen their previous installments. Anyway, have a great night everybody and thanks for reading!

It is a Venom Day.

Jessica and I had the impulse decision to bust out our Venom 1 blu-ray and subscribe to AMC’s 20 dollar a month package. This package let’s you pay 20 dollars and then you get to watch 3 movies every week with no extra charge (on tickets at least haha).

So with our lunch we watched the first one. Now we’re at the Theater getting ready for Venom 2.

So should be a fun night. Tomorrow we’re watching the new James Bond with my dad.
