Currently: On My Day-Off


anime, anime girl, and art image

Currently listening: a lot of new pop songs, just for the taste of them! 

Currently sitting: in the loveseat in the living room, laptop on my lap. 😄

Currently liking: my one day off for the week tonight. I got some shopping done, cashed in a lottery ticket, skyped with my boyfriend to play Path of Exile, and grilled burgers for dinner.A nice day!

Currently drinking: Powerade is my latest drink of choice, strawberry lemonade or citrus passionfruit.

Currently reading: I’m in the middle of several stories rn, and it’s hard to find time to get to them. But, I’m about 87 chapters into I Am A Hero, a zombie manga, and about two pages into the first Game of Thrones book. I’m also reading Bone Gap.

Currently writing: alternate endings to one of my old novels. I don’t know why, it just keeps happening. 😄

Currently watching: at this exact moment, The Great British Baking Show. Other things I’m currently watching include final episodes of the current season’s anime shows. And I literally just finished watching Breaking Bad.

Currently obsessed with: “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay. I’ve not heard much by either of these groups, but I do adore this song!!

Currently tired: from my last six full days of work. I’ve been resting today on my one day off today; but I’m tired quite a lot lately. Besides that, my body clock is off since I work mostly night shifts; I’m not out of bed till about ten in the morning, but I don’t head to bed till about two or three in the morning too.

Currently excited: that I get to work with my favorite people tomorrow night! Eileen has basically adopted me as her second daughter and I love working with her. And even on busy hectic nights like Saturday, when I work with Trent and Matt, I know I’ll be laughing and talking about the silliest funnest things!

Currently failing: at getting my bedroom floor picked up. I keep saying I will…but it still hasn’t happened yet. >__>

Currently scaring myself with: the thought of using most of my money I’ve saved and sinking it into a car…and then having the new expenses of insurance, ect. I need to get a vehicle soon though.

Currently stuck in my head: well, see that song up there? It’s really stuck. 😄

Currently wishing: that I get a better work schedule next week, with all my friends and homies. 😄 I love my work family so much!

Currently praying: for family and friends alike, for varying reasons too private to share. But, you know. ❤

Jamie’s Follower Appreciation/Doctor Who Giveaway!


giveaway!

I’m so happy to at last throw my blog giveaway this month! It starts today! I’ve had an amazing time writing on this blog the past three years and the people who’ve followed and commented throughout the years have been some of the best parts! Today, this giveaway is for you!

Since I’m using Rafflecopter to host this giveaway, and Rafflecopter wouldn’t cooperate with WordPress, I’m using a special page on Facebook to host this giveaway (Facebook wants me to say they’re in no affiliated with this giveaway I’m just using it to make the Rafflecopter app work!) It should still be really easy to do and I’ll still spell out rules here! When you’re ready, BE SURE to click to the link to visit the giveaway page to enter!

Simple Version:

Giveaway Length: 10/13/14 to 10/31/14

Item: Doctor Who Box Set of Seasons 5-7 on DVD Region 1!

Eligibility: Must live within The United States or Canada.

To Enter: Visit this page and see what Rafflecopter options you want to fill out to make lots of entries!

Terms of Use: Can be found on the Rafflecopter app on the Facebook page.

Note: In the Rafflecopter, to get extra entries, you can leave me a couple of comments answering the questions: please try to leave those comments here! This is, after all, a giveaway for this blog.

Extended Version

There is one prize–meaning there will only be one winner– and my giveaway items are the fan favorite Doctor Who Seasons 5-7 on DVD; in new and good condition! I have only viewed Season 7 once and Seasons 4 and 5 never. I don’t care if you watch Doctor Who or not for you to enter this contest; all I care is that you are a blog follower because this giveaway is a follower appreciation giveaway! This giveaway value is $240–I wanted to make my first giveaway big! (For some time, I wanted to also giveaway The Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy but sadly that is no longer possible! So sorry about that!)

Want a picture of the three box sets!? Here you go; a raw photo from my desk! I

The only restriction I have on this giveaway is that I can only ship these within either The United States of America and Canada. Sorry other-international-readers. I almost cried making this decision; I really do appreciate you following me! If you can’t enter, leave me your blog/twitter/Facebook link in the comments below and I’ll come follow you!

The only other thing I want to highlight is that when you enter, in case you win, you must be sure there is a way for me to find you and privately contact you for your address so I can send them to you!! If I can’t do that, then a new winner will have been chosen. But as long as I can direct message you through Facebook, Twitter, or can contact you to get your email, we should be in good business! (And of course overall rule: let’s all be adults and mature throughout this contest, no hating on the winner, ect ect ect. Come on. Let’s have a good time!)

Follow this link to my giveaway page and click on the tab “Giveaway” to get started! The giveaway begins today and you can enter in different ways up to October 31st when the giveaway closes at 6 AM Arizona time! Within 48 hours after the giveaway closes, I will announce the winner!

I really hope this giveaway is a success! It’s my first one, so I will be learning throughout this process myself! Good luck to the winner!

(As fate has it, I will be gone most of today, so any questions you might have I won’t actually see till later in the day–just a heads up!)
