The Nerd Journals

Filling up journals as proof of my meager existence.

Walmart & Hobby Lobby shopping haul

I’ve been using so many things up lately that my collection was a bit more sparse than I prefer it to be.  I got myself a few more stickers and rolls of washi and tape rollers, as well as a couple of things I wasn’t really looking for but found on clearance anyway.

Breathe – a magazine flip through

I got this magazine at a pharmacy while picking up some medicine and I’m so in love with it, I thought you guys might be interested in a flip through. I paid full price for mine like a chump but if memory serves me correctly, Meagan from TulipTube got a deal on her magazine by purchasing it second hand from eBay. If you find yourself interested in health, beauty and overall wellness I do recommend checking out this magazine. Hope you all have a day that’s easy like Sunday morning.

4/5 stars

I enjoy dystopian books that take a small nugget of current society like copyright durations being extended indefinitely (thanks, Walt Disney) and frivolous lawsuits and turn them to a chilling story about what could happen if taken to the extreme.

Speth, a fifteen-year-old girl makes a snap decision that rather than pay for her words she speaks, she will remain silent. Her only power in the system set up for failure is to not participate. This causes problems for not only herself but her family as well.

I was hooked on this book from start to finish, the only problem I had is that Spleth seemed to lack any strong emotion one way or another, which seems a little counter-intuitive for a girl so disillusioned by the world that she refuses to speak.

January 2018 Shopping Haul

I hit up Hobby Lobby when they had their paper crafting merchandise on sale for 50% off and I used my Savings Catcher funds from Walmart to buy myself stickers.  Lots of fun new things for Erica with minimum out-of-pocket spending.  This works for me.

Origin

5/5 stars

You know what? Nuts to you guys, I love Dan Brown books and I am unashamed to announce that. They’re not thought-provoking but they’re not supposed to be prose that changes your view on life, the universe, and everything. They’re fun and exciting stories that keep me turning the pages until I have devoured them all; which I’ve now done after completing Origin.

This book was an exciting art history inspired romp around Spain with none other than Robert Langdon and the beautiful chick he got to hang out with this time, Princess Consort Ambra Vidal. As they race against time to release a presentation by futurist Edmond Kirsch who was murdered in cold blood, Langdon and Vidal (with the help of Winston!) have to unravel clues that will help them discover Kirch’s password.

Releasing this presentation will answer two questions that humans have pined over: Where do we come from? Where are we going? Read this book to find out who exactly would want to stop this pertinent information from being released and enjoy a lot of excitement along the way.

Coffee & autumn journal flip through

Join me as I drink my morning coffee and talk about my most recently filled journal (my foxy journal) and a couple of other random things I have been wanting to show you.

I don’t think the freebie promotion is going on anymore but Fat Head is the site that I got my emoji stickers from. If you find a link for a free emoji sticker, please let me know and I will update this so other people can get the stickers.
