Oh what a year it’s been! Surviving Coronapocalypse!

17 Mar

It’s been a year, right? 2020 into 2021, Coronapocolypse. Hopefully, we are finally heading out of this with people getting vaccinated and being willing to continue with precautions for the time being (I won’t comment on people who refuse to wear their masks, who choose to support businesses who refuse to follow the rules, or those who continue to think that Covid-19 is nothing- I am sure you can probably imagine my opinion). But I want to talk to you about what I have learned in the last year. Some of it is personal and some of it is stuff that I have chosen to work on in order to better myself. Continue reading

Don’t you hate it when your mother is always right? Continue reading

The curse of being trapped at home…

3 Mar

The problem with all these home shows and DIY programs is that it convinces you that you too can remodel a home. Convinces. I mean, if these every day folks can do it, so can I, right?

It happens right away, too. From the first episode you watch you start to think that you can update a space easy peasy. Continue reading

Too many trailers, too many teases

24 Feb

Today, I want to talk about why I never watch trailers and hate casting spoilers. Whenever a new movie or tv show starts teasing something upcoming, they release teasers and trailers. They run on TV and before movies. We all know this, right? Well… I hate them. Mostly.

I know. Unpopular opinion. But I have my reasons. Continue reading

Gaming as a non-gamer

17 Feb

Ok, first off… of the people who have written for NerdLush, I am probably the least one to be considered a gamer. Of any kind. I enjoy a good board game but haven’t played one in years because I lived too far from friends, my friends pull the “old and married” card, or… 2020. And while I own multiple game systems, I cannot play many games.

I stand with you.

12 Feb

Recently, Charisma Carpenter of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fame, amongst others, spoke out about abuse she received from Joss Whedon on the set, in particular during her pregnancy. Because I wasn’t there and don’t know the situation personally, I will only say this- I stand with Charisma.

Why? Continue reading

And… we’re back. Join us?

10 Feb

I have been meaning to sit down and update NerdLush about so many things, but time got away from me, I got caught up in a huge issue that I had to deal with in its entirety, and well… 2020. But I am hoping that this can be a fresh start.

Goodbye my friend

29 Sep

This isn’t the kind of thing I want to be posting here but it’s my site and I can do what I want. Besides, I have been posting about selfcare this year and writing this is part of mine.

And he was a nerdy little cat.

I watched something that made me cry and I loved every tear

6 May

Let me start off by saying that over the last few years I have become someone who prefers cartoons and comic book based programs over most anything else. Sure, I know there is a ton of amazing TV out there and I have a vague interest in a lot of it but I also work 13 hour days at a prison. I don’t want to deal with cop shows, medical dramas, or real life. I want to watch superheroes save the day. My mom calls it “popcorn for the mind” and I’m totally OK with that.

BUT… every now and then I have to broaden my horizons. Continue reading

Surviving Coronapocalypse 101

3 Apr

I have been meaning to write something for a bit but my life is fluid at the moment, up to change at all times, and that is overwhelmingly exhausting. But I think it’s important that I use the voice this page has given me (thanks for that) and present some thoughts about surviving this pandemic lockdown. Continue reading
