Today I finished this book called “Now is the Time for Running” by Michael Williams. It’s really great! It’s about this guy named Deo that lived in Zimbabwe. He had a family there, and they all died due to the “president” armies? I don’t know much about African history. I am sorry. He runs all the way to South Africa, and before he gets there he meets interesting people and learns a lot about himself along the way. It’s really good. It even talks about soccer a lot! How soccer helps Deo cope with things and loss. I really do recommend picking it up.
“Isolation” by Travis Thrasher is another one. It’s about this missionary family who moved back to North Carolina from Papua New Guinea. There the wife experience visions , father finds lack of faith in God, the boy is exploring the big house they live in, and the sister is just really there to be a character. Angels, demons, and faith play a huge part in this book. It’s really good, and I would recommend it.
Right now I am reading “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck. I was never given the option to read it in high school. I can see why too. it’s barely a 100 pages, and I am already on ago 40. I started this book 20 minutes ago haha. has anyone read this? So far the book is good, but I am so uncomfortable reading this. it’s like my watching The Walking Dead, and cringing at all the inhumane parts of the TV show. The N word doesn’t bother me, because well that’s how it was back then. it what happened to the puppies, and the poor mice that Lennie finds haha. This has some sick dark humor to it, but it’s still a good book.
In other news does anyone still collect beanie babies? I posted them on my instagram, and I got a little nostalgic. I posted a semi story in the second link below. It’s not a long read like this blog is I promise).
The dentist went great yesterday. Only one tooth this time got filled, and they are going to keep an eye on the other one. Which is a good thing for me. Eating and drinking was hard enough from one part of my mouth being numb. Seriously I made a mess all over my shirt from that. I am glad it’s over though.
Did anyone watch the new Bring Me The Horizon video Drown? What did y’all think? For me it’s going to be a bit hard to get use to this new sound if they keep go in this direction with it. The song is nice, but I didn’t like the video.

No, I don’t mean playing with your heart either. I mean I locked the keys in my bosses car again. At least this time it’s parked outside of my work. My boss said she would get here early today, so we can call the locksmith. Personally leaving the keys in the ignition over night is a bad idea, but luckily no one stole it. I can imagine a drunk college kid coming in, breaking the window, and then burn the tires out into the night. They wouldn’t even get very far considering the police department is right next to the campus police department.
In other news I had to deal with lazy people yesterday who didn’t want to pick up their packages. They complain that it’s so “far” when they have classes right across the street. I know I wouldn’t act this way. If I spent my money on something, or if I got a care package I get it in a heart beat! I love getting things in the mail! In fact I am waiting for my LootCrate fear themed monthly crate and my LPU package. I am super excited!
Lastly, my dad is doing better, and he started his PT last Monday! He’s moving up and around, and happy as can be! I forgot to bring the Transformers 4 and The Winter Soldier movie over to my dads. I will when his truck is available to be picked up later in the week.
So, the LPU items I bought Friday were already shipped on the same day. I bought everything in the point store besides the skate deck and the LPU11 lanyard. Not that interested in the skate deck that much. In total I think I spent about 7,100 points. I accidentally bought two LPU Cup holders. Whoops! I can’t wait for everything including the drumsticks.
Anyways today is Monday, and it’s a new week! payday was this past Friday, and I bought the Turtle Van Funko Doll! It’s big, and I had to make some room on my dresser for it. That meant Ylvis (my stuff animal fox) had to be put on Robbie’s dresser. Robbie wasn’t too happy that I found it in Barnes & Noble. At least now I have the complete Turtle Funko set.
Happy Friday everyone! Today is payday, and I get to go use that money to get three cavities filled! YAY! I am so excited for this treatment that I am jumping for joy. I think the only good thing about this is that I get out an hour early from work. Also I had Krispy Kreme doughnuts with a pumpkin spice latte for breakfast. Then I watched CinemaSins “everything wrong with TF4 in two parts.” still liked the movie, but it did have a lot of sins. I noticed them in the the theater! I can’t wait for TF5! Anyone playing the two new games Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within? I am watching them on YT right now (not by Pewdiepie either. I haven’t been watching him that much lately). Anyways, played the daily story mission from Destiny, and somehow I got four ascendant shards. i don’t know HOW, but I ain’t complaining. I have all legendary gear (one exotic), and they are all ready to be fully upgraded if I had 4 AS’s for each of them for the last row. Exotic will take 8. Such a pain to get AS’s. Have a good weekend! Maybe I can finally buy the two Funko dolls I needed – Plague Doctor from AC and the vocaloid Hatsune Miku. Maybe some OMAM merchandise too.
