Library Haul ~ 8/19/17

I might have gone a little crazy today. I’ve been a fan of the Star Wars movies for years and I mean years. But, I feel like I haven’t been a true fan lately because I have so many books to catch up on. So anything Star Wars I can get my hands on? I’m all for it. Even the junior books. Hey, I managed to get one of them done already.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get Logan. I’ve been up in the air about that. Not sure why. I didn’t have interest in it when it was in the theaters. After some deep thought and my arm starting to hurt from the books. I decided to go for it.

Before I Fall, I also thought about. I usually read the book first before I see the movie. So depending on my schedule. I might try to read it this week. Or, I’ll just have to watch the movie first.

Before I Fall

Stress, Stress, Stress

Why does stress keep coming back into my life? Just when I think it’s gone or I even have it under control. It comes right back. I know the reason stress is attacking. Unfortunately, right now I would rather not mention why. I can see it now. In the comments. Why mention it if you don’t want to tell us what it is? I’ve seen that enough on Facebook. People get even mean about it. I understand why some people do it. They just need prayers or maybe they just want to know everything is going to be fine. I respect that. So, I hope you understand why I’m not saying the reason why stress has become a big issue in my life. We’ll just say it’s been something that has been in my life for some time. Unless things change, the stress is not going anywhere. I am working on changes, but it will take awhile. I do have a goal that I would like to see accomplished by the age of forty. I know, I know. That’s not far away. We can talk about the forties another time. Trust me, I could do a whole blog on that. Oooh, a blog post for later this week? Anyways, back to stress.

I do find ways to make the stress go away. But, some days? I get to the point where stress takes over and the rest of my day falls apart. Yesterday, might not have been the best day for me. But really, when are Mondays the best for anyone?  But, I managed to make it somewhat better. I managed to go for a walk. Which helped a lot. Even if it’s walking through the neighborhood. I find it relaxing. Another positive thing about walking is that it’s also good for the body. It’s healthy. So I get two positives out of walking. I’m sure there is more. For now, I’m happy with the two positives.

When I got home from my walk, I saw my dad working on my TV. Most likely talking with someone on the phone. Yea for me, the TV is under a four-year warranty. It should hit three years in December. My dad, the engineer was looking into it for me. At least, he got the TV back on. Unfortunately, there is still a black darkness in the middle. Again, back to stress. Normally if I’m stressed out? Something like a broken TV will stress me even more. I hate when things are broken and I can’t get it fixed. It’s really amazing my blood pressure is never super high. How do I do that? I have no clue. Stress affects my body in other ways.

After my walk and dinner, I pretty much spend the rest of my night watching my watchlist on Youtube. I do love watching those videos. After all, I do subscribe to them for a reason. I just wish I had maybe had gotten some writing in or did some reading. I’m so behind in my reading. It’s crazy. My to-read list is growing while my read pile is not growing.

It’s going to be a slow process to show stress that I’m the boss. But, I’m going to have faith I can do it. The goal I have when I turn forty? Even if I’m not there at 10:20 am on December 18, 2019. If I know I’m getting there and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I will be a happy camper. I know my life is going in the right direction.

Library Finds – Movies/TV/Music/Game

So as always, got a little carried away at the Library.



I don’t know if it’s because of Supergirl being on the CW. Or, just that I still wish Tom Welling could still be Superman. But, I’ve been in the mood to watch Smallville. Not sure, if I’ll watch the whole series back to back. But, starting off with season one. It’s been so long since I’ve watched the show.







I have been wanting to see this. Thoughts? Plus. it has Michael Fassbender.







I like Eddie Redmayne. So this has to be good, right?








When I picked this up. I thought it was based off the book. It hit me later, that I was thinking Paper Towns. My bad. Who knows, maybe I’ll watch it.





I’ve been wanting to see this. Curious to see what they’ll do   with this.







Loved her in the 80s. Curious to know how this will sound.







I’ve been eyeing this game. Not sure what to think of it yet.
