Nerd Alert

Happy Saturday nerds, and welcome (finally) to a new installment of the Nerd Alert!! I knew that it had been a while since I’d shared a link roundup with you all, but I was still shocked to learn that the last one was in April.

Yet despite the fact that it has been nearly four months between alerts, I’ve still been compiling a list of potential links… I just haven’t been sharing them. So, since I’m starting to get back into a blogging rhythm, I thought I would use this post to clean things up a bit. Some of these links are slightly dated – two were clearly tied to the Oscars, which were in February – but I still hope you enjoy! Read More

Back to Basics

I’ll be honest readers, looking over the past few months (years, really) of blog posts is painful for me. My posting schedule, which is supposed to be three times a week, has been sporadic at best and nearly non-existent at worst. Oh sure, there are reasons for that – from struggling with the demands of a fast-paced, high-intensity job to getting married to picking up work as a freelance editor – but it’s not just the external stuff that’s been getting in my way. A lot of it has been me.  Read More

Nerd Alert

As I’m sure you can guess – based on my previous posts – this week has been a bit of a rough one here at GeekyNerdy HQ. I’ve had to burn the candle at both ends, so to speak, and even had to go into the office for a few hours today! (There’s a certain cruel irony about having to work on April Fool’s Day.) So, I decided to just embrace the week’s unofficial theme of “better late than never” and turn it into an official one with today’s Nerd Alert. All of the items below are time-related, and many are things I really wish I could have. Enjoy!  Read More

Nerd Alert

This week was one of those odd ones for me: The individual days seemed to drag on forever, but the weekend seemed to get here surprisingly soon. It will likely be over just as quickly, especially since I actually have plans! I had brunch this morning with some great girlfriends who I haven’t seen in awhile, have brunch with my cousin tomorrow (who I also haven’t seen in awhile), and the Mysterious Mr. C and I are heading to the theater at some point to see John Wick: Chapter 2. It may not be all that relaxing, but reconnecting with everyone has been just what I needed!  Read More

Every year, usually the week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, there is a proliferation of articles about making New Year’s resolutions. Then, about a week later, there is a host of stories about how most of us will give up on those resolutions by February. It is a seemingly endless and unbreakable cycle, one that I am certainly guilty of participating in. But not this year!

True, I didn’t have that much of a choice about foregoing my 2017 resolutions, but being laid out with a nasty upper respiratory infection helped me internalize the idea put forth by the ladies behind PowerSheets (which I am also trying out) that there is nothing special about January 1. Read More
