Top 10 Things That Make Me Happy!

Happy Thursday Novas! Thank you for tuning into today’s post! A big thank you for Kim from Later Levels for nominating me in this blogging challenge. With blogging challenges you answer the question on your blog and then nominate others to participate! Blogging challenges are a great way to connect with the blogging community and provide content for your blog. Without further adieu, here are 10 things that make me happy!

Video Games – Of course I wanted to start of with the extremely obvious, my hobby (more like my life lol) video games. Video games have been in my life for a longgggggg time, practically my entire existence (apart from a hiatus here and there) and honestly they have helped me cope with the loss of family members or the pressures of high school (click here to read my Evolution of a Gamer post). Many times I took out my frustrations on games like Grand Theft Auto or Saints Row and in turn, held less pent up anger which could cause an unstable teenager to do reckless acts. Video games will always be something that caan make me happy instantly!

Friends – It’s funny, I’ve read a few of these posts and I haven’t seen anyone say that their friends make them happy. I am fortunate enough to have some completely AWESOME  friendships that I would not trade for any amount of money in the world. I have my bestest friends from school and childhood. Were so inseparable, that people on Facebook are always commenting on how we stuck together after high school and college. I also have some AMAZING co-workers whohave quickly become greta people in my life. They uplift me and we have a ball singing Karaoke, going out, playing games or just making jokes.

Family – Family is a big one for me.My mother and my brother, while sometimes lovethey   completely annoy me, I love them so much and I will do anything for them. My mom made decisions when we were young to leave me with my grandma to be raised. As a child you don’t quite understand, but as an adult I am grateful to her. My childhood and the way I was raised couldn’t have been any better and I still saw my mom weekly. My brother is the closest person to me and I can tell him anything. It’s weird I’ve always wanted a sister, but I would never trade my brother. He protects me, he mentors me and he makes me a better person. Also, my boyfriend is lumped in with my family. What more can I say othen than, I am the luckiest to have him!

Writing –  writing  Writing has been a passion of mine since I could write. There’s something about chronicling your day or creating a story that makes me feel complete. I remember writing stories in 1st grade about a secret valley that you could only get to by taking daring risks. I graduated from short stories to writing poetry all through middle and high school (I still have most of my writing notebooks too). Finding blogging has really just made this year all that more fulfilling as I conect with some many of you amazing bloggers. Thank you for allowing me to live in this community with you!

TV – Television will always make me happy! I have so many shows that I binge watch or have waiting in my Netflix Queue to watch. This past week I’ve watched Me Before You (balling my eyesout of course lol), completed Pretty Little Liars and this Hulu Original Series T@gged (which will have a review this week or next week). TV or YouTube or Netflix or anything that you can watch can evoke so many emotions, happiness is the one that I look for. I want to laugh, I want to cry, I want there to be an ending that agrees with the story I’m not sure how  I have time to do all of this lol.

Food – Food is burgeran    instant comfort. My favorite foods would be Burgers and Mashed Potatoes. I’m happy when I can eat some great food, similar to the live of a Sim on The Sims franchise. If the character eats bad food, their mood and overall happiness decreases, but if they eat great food, their mood instantly elevates. Our senses are a big part of who we are and how we will react to situations during the day. Being in a great mood after a meal makes me more social (as I already talk a lot lol) and positive!

Traveling– Traveling and changing my scenary makes me really happy. I take a trip a few times a year to see my friends in Illionois and each time I am super sad when I have to return home and to life. Don’t get me wrong,  world  I love Orlando and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, but there’s something about being in a new city or location that makes me happy.  I love looking at nature or the cityline and seeing different aspects of culture and personality. I took a road trip from Florida to Illinois the 1st time I went to see my friends (did I mention that I met them on Xbox 🙂 ) and it was amazing. I seen the mountains of Tennessee, the underground mall of Atlanta and so much more!

Activities – Activities make me happy! living in a tourist city like Orlando comes with its perks! There’s so much to do here! I can literally goggle anything and find a place in Orlando to go and have some fun. I’ve went to dance classes, painting, pottery, escape games, mini golf, go karts, theme parks, trampoline parks, indoor skydiving and so much more over the course of my life. When I’m active and able to try new things, whether alone or in a group, I’m very happy!

Meeting New People – I’m very social and friendly so meeting new people and connecting with them has always made me happy. It’s like you can learn so much from different people. I am the girl that visits places on my day off and start talking to people with no real plan other than to learn about their life. Learning is another thing that makes me happy. When I want something, I set my mind to it and try to learn as much about it as I can. Yes, I was the bookworm and goody two shoes student in school, but like why wouldn’t you want to learn! Knowledge is Power lol!

Favorites – All of my “Favorites”  vulpix  make me happy! This can be any item or anything dealing with my favorite characters or items. Seth Rollins, Scooby Doo, Regina from Once Upon a Time, The Joker, Sesshomaru, Vegeta, Belle you name it. If it’s a favorite or mine, it can make me happy anytime and any place! Having favorites, whether you connect with their personalities, or you model them after your family (Scooby Doo was a childhood homage to my brother!) gives you something to think about and something to feel proud in.

Wheeeew! That was a doozey of a post! Thank you for taking the time to read the 10 things that make me happy. Now for my nominees:

If I haven’t mentioned you, still participate and share something about yourself! Don’t forget to link me or leave a comment so that I can know to look at your post! What are somethings that make you happy? Let’s talk!

Sonic Mania Video Game

Happy Wednesday Novas! Today’s post will be focusing on a video game that I have just learned will be releasing this year; Sonic Mania! Sonic was one of the iconic games of my childhood so when I was rummaging through the PlayStation store (because my Xbox One just got fried by a storm :((((( ) the new Sonic game immediately caught my attention.

Sonic Mania is a 2D video game that allows you to play with Sonic, Tails or Knuckles as you take on stages and battle against Dr. Eggman. The levels are re-imagined, classic levels like a newer version of Green Hill Zone, Casino Night or the Chemical Plant stage. This reboot of a classic also brings with it the new Drop Dash move! From what I can see, it looks like you are able to drop down (while in ball form) and quickly dash in the direction of your choice. This is a great add on because it’s all performed in one single motion. No more losing coins because you didn’t properly jump on the enemy. Look at the comparisons between the original Casino Night Stage and the new Casino Stage below!

I love a classic Sonic game, but my favorite will forever be Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. The introduction of Shadow and the Chao Gardens are a formula that was unmatched in the franchise’s history. Some questions I have are how many levels will be included in the game? Are you able to switch between the 3 main characters at any time?

Sonic Mania looks to be really fun and I’m always up for some nostalgia.  I have listed below my top reasons that I would want to “Play” or “Skip” Sonic Mania.


  • Classic 2D Game play
  • Very reasonable price $19.99
  • Upgraded features (60 FPS, Drop Dash Ability)


  • Not a Fan of Sonic Games

Check out the trailer for the game below!

Snotgirl : Comic Review!

Happy Tuesday Novas! Thank you for tuning in to my very first Comic Review! My coworkers and I are in a so called “Comic Club” in which we each purchase comics and then let each other read them. We talk about the issue and decide if we want to continue the series or not. Selena was up and she picked a comic that was SO HER! The volume that she bought contained 6 issues of the story (it ends on a cliffhanger!) and I have completed  reading it and would like to share my thoughts!

Title: Snotgirl: Green Hair, Don’t Care Vol. 1

Publishing Date: February, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Fantasy/ Romance/ Fashion/ Comedy

ISBN: 978-1-5343-0036-1

Creators: Bryan Lee O’Malley & Leslie Hung

Publisher: Image Comics Inc.

Lottie Person is a glamourous fashion blogger living her best life- at least that’s what she wants you to think. The truth is, her allergies are out of control, her friends are terrible people, her boyfriend traded her up for someone younger, and she may or may not have killed somebody! It’s the first volume of Snotgirl, and things will never be the same!

My Thoughts:

I definitely enjoyed the first volume of snotgirl. You’re left trying to put a few pieces together and really, nothing is explained. It’s great becuase it keeps the reader engaged in everything going on and I couldn’t stp turning the pages.  Lottie is a well known fashion blogger, but what is her like really like? Sure, she knows about the latest trends and are invited to all of the best parties, but what is life like behind the blog.? It’s like a VH1 Behind the Music Special and I can tell you, her life is nothing like it seems!

The characters in the comic are not really relatable. They are exaggerated versions of what one would think the world of a fashion blogger and their friends would be. Lottie gives nicknames to everyone she meets and these names are representations of how Lottie views the person. You will read names like Normgirl and Cutegirl come up often.

The Aesthetics:

The art is beautiful in my opinion. The bright and vibrant color scheme reflects the modern and trendy  personality of the main character, Lottie. The character personalizations are pretty well detailed and I like that each character has their own personal style.


Something hat I think can be improved are the transitions from one scene to the other. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not fluent in reading comics, but some transitions seemed a little sudden. It was as if there should have been 1 or 2 more panels of dialogue before the next scene started. Also, the comic is marketed towards a specific demographic. The use of emoji’s and socail media language is widely integrated.

As with any review that I write on the blog, I would like to provide my top reasons to “Play” or read the comic and my reasons you might want to “Skip” this series.


  • Beautiful color scheme
  • Funny Story
  • Interesting characters and plot


  • Not Interested in the life of a Fashion Blogger
  • If you find looking at Snot Disgusting
  • Looking for a more action packed story


IGN 9 out of 10

Comic Book Roudup 8.6 out of 10

Thank you for reading my first comic review! What are your thoughts on Colume 1 of Snotgirl? Have you read or heard of this series? What comics are you currently reading? Let’s talk comics and graphic novels!

WWE Battlegrounds Results!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the Smackdown Live special ; Battlegrounds! The Smackdown roster of Superstars battled it out at the Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia! Right on shcedule we have the recap and results from the matches.

Tag Team Championship Match– The starting match of the PayPerView pitted the rough and tough champions The Usos verus the longest reigning tag team champions, The New Day! The New Day fought using Kofi and Xavier Woods, sidelining the powerhouse, Big E. Woods and Kofi made a great tandem starting off hot with kicks, flips and tricks. The Usos answered back with hard hitting moves and signature high flying tricks. The match started the night off correctly, having the crowd screaming “This Is AWESOME” early. Results: Your new Smackdown Live Tag Team Champions are the New Day!

Nakamura Versus Baron Corbin– Next up Nakamura came out (finally uninterrupted in his intro) to face Mr. Money In The Bank, Baron Corbin. Nakamura started the match uninterested in Barons tough exterior, he started throwing punches and kicks off rip. Corbin answered back with extreme speed and power catching Nakamura off guard a few times. This match was pretty entertaining. Results: Nakamura wins by DQ (Corbin low-blowed Nakamura to get disqualified).

United States Championship Match – Champion AJ Styles came out confident against Kevin Owens. After Styles’ insane and unexpected win at the house show in Madison Square Garden, the WWE Universe erupted in cheer for the new champ. This match wasprobably the most anticipated match of the night for me. Styles put up a great fight and Owens studied his opponent well pulling out counters ever so often. The highlight was when Styles went for the Styles Clash, KO reversed the move and flung AJ into the Ref! It was insane! Results: KO is the New United States Champion due to a controversial pinfall, but pinfall none the less!

Women’s 5 Way Elimination Match – The Smackdown Women’s Champion Naomi joined the commentators during the women’s 5 way elimination match! I originally thought the Superstars will come out 1 at a time, but I was incorrect. The match started with all 5women going at each other. Tamina dominated early tossing women left and right. Charlotte and Becky Lynch put on masterful displays of technique and precision, wile Lana… well she was yelling at everyone in Russian. The order of elimination was as follows: After trying to save Lana for the bagillionth time, Tamina tapped out to Becky Lynch’s Disarmer, followed shortly by Lana herself. Becky was eliminated soon after leaving Charlotte and Natalya… the 2 women I didn’t want to win. At this point I was rooting for Nattie. Results: Natalya is the number 1 contender to challenge champion Naomi at Summerslam!

Flag Match – John Cena took on Rusev for a flag match. The match was ok at best in my opinion, with all of the action and suspense appearing towards the end of the match. Both flags were half-way up the ramp and Rusev had enough. After putting Cena in a few accolades, the Bulgarian Brute set 2 tables up side by side next to the USA podium. There was blood in his eyes as he was looking for a way to humilate Cena. Results: Cena reversed Rusev’s evil intentions and hit his Attitude Adjustment off of the USA Podium, onto the very tables that Rusev stacked! Cena Wins!

Sami Zayn Vs Mike Kannelis– OK, honestly did not care about this match so I fast foward through it. Results: Sami Zayn lands the Helluva Kick for the win!

Punjabi Prison Match – The WWE Champion Jinder Mahal fought the Viper Randy Orton inside of the Punjabi Prison. At first glance, the structure looked like a bamboo jungle gym lol. I was worried about watching the match (I don’t know how the fans in the building were able to watch). 3 of the 4 doors inside of the cage were locked early, with both Superstars battling with about 30 seconds left on the last door. Then the SIngh Brothers came out from under the ring and pulled Mahal out of the 1st cage. Orton eventually slithered out and put up a great battle knocking out the Singh Borthers and beating Mahal with a Kendo Stick. This battle got bloody and brutal quick. Results: Jinder Mahal retains…. with an assist from The Great Khali!

Those are the results from the event! This prediction for me was the worst! I only predicted maybe 2 things correctly (which I admittedly knew would happen). This time around, I predicted what I wanted to happen, but I wasn’t too suprised (Other than AJ losing the title). What are your thoughts? What do you think this means for Summerslam?

WWE Battlegrounds Preview & Predictions

Happy Saturday Novas! Today’s post will be my traditional preview and predictions post for the WWE PayPerView event happening SUnday! This weekend, Smackdown Live’s Finest will have their time in the sun to fight at the Battlegrounds event.


Tye Dillinger vs Aiden English (Kickoff)- The Kickoff match on the pre-show is set to be The Perfect 10 vs now lone member of the Vaudevillains. I mentioned in my post a few days ago that I would love to see Tye Dillinger getting more opportunities than what he is currently receiving. Prediction: Tye Dillinger should win this match.


John Cena vs Rusev Flag Match- The Face That Runs The Plac, John Cena will take on the Bulgarian Brute Rusev in a flag match. Both Superstar’s Flags will be suspended in the turn buckles on the opposite side of the rin. The Superstars will fight and the first person to retirve their Country’s flag will be the winner. Prediction: John Cena!


Shinsuke Nakamura vs Baron Corbin – The 2 Superstars have been feuding since Nakamura ended his feud with the show off Dolph Ziggler. Even though the opponents are the different this time around, the feud is the same. Corbin believes that Nakamura is getting all of the shine and spotlight for no reason. He feels that he is the Andre The Giant Memorial Winner and Mr. Money In The Bank so he should have the spotlight. Nakamura and Corbin have been brawling before the match, backstage and during each other’s entrances. Predictions: Nakamura for the win!


Smackdown Tag Champions The Usos Vs The New Day – The tag team champions the Usos will be taking on crowd favorites the New Day for the title. The Usos and New Day have been feuding since the New Day returned back to WWE. The battles ahead went from physical to a rap battle. Predictions: I want the Usos to retain. The New Day have been Tag Champions for the longest time.


Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch vs Natalya vs Tamina vs Lana 5 Way Elimination match (number 1 contender at Summer Slam) – This 5 way elimination match should be entertaining. The match results will detemineChampion Naomi’s opponent at the cross brand Summerslam.  I ecpect the match to be pretty good and I expect people who had alliances to turn on each other for the chance at the title. Predictions: I’m feeling Tamina. I think she will become victorious and get a title opportunity.

Sami Zayn vs Mike Kanellis – This feud between the Underdog and the star-crossed lover has been building for a while now. I’m not quite sure or interested int he details of the match so let’s skip to my predictions. Prediction: Mike Kanellis will win. You can’t beat the power of love Sami, lol.


United States Champion Aj Styles Vs Kevin Owens – Another title defense will see the champion and phenomenal AJ Styles versus Kevin Owens for the United Stated Title. Styles won the title during a house match in Madison Square Garden. When he returned to Smackdown the follwoing Tuesday, he initiated an open challenege (sound familiar). Cena came out to challenge and Owens stepped in to claim his rematch. Prediction: AJ Styles retain his title.


WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs Randy Orton Punjabi Prison Match- The Punjabi Prison match is going to be a great one. Champion Jinder Mahal will be trapped in 2 prisons with the Viper Randy Orton. This match will solidify the modern day Maharajah’s reign by allowing him to win a match without the help of the Singh Brothers.  I’m very interested in this match! Prediction: Jinder Mahal should retain and this feud can finally be over.

These are my predictions for this weekend’s event! Who do you think wil reign victorious? Which matches are you looking forward to? How do you think the outcome of Battleground will affect Summerslam? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Slamcrate Unboxing :July

Happy Friday Novas! I’ve finally received my WWE Slamcrate for the month and it’s time for another unboxing post! This month’s theme was “Stables.” Honestly, I had no idea what that meant until I read the booklet that came with the crate. Pretty much, the Stables theme focuses on some of the more iconic groups to hit the WWE! The loot this month was definitely tier 1 for me, so let’s see what we got!


Each crate contains a shirt! I’ve already mentioned in previous unboxings my love for the WWE Shirts as opposed to the normal lootcrate shirts. These shirts are better quality. This month we received an exclusive Sasha Banks Shirt!

Each crate contains a collectible of some kind. This month I have received the 2nd installment of the ring characters, Triple H (last time we received Stone Cold Steve Austin). The new pack also included the connector piece so that we can put together the ring.

You also receive a collectible pin. For the Slamcrates, the pins have been different titles. This month we have received the NWO Title. Also, we have received the Bray Wyatt Socks that I wil never wear because they are sooooo beautiful. To the wall you go Bray! You can’t talk about groups without mentioning the ever popular New Day! They were represented well with the foam finger, unicorn horn!


The poster that was included this month is already up on the wall; The Shield… Need I Say More?????

I have the colectible booklet and the pamphlet letting you know what each item is in the crate. This is one of my favorite boxes so far (my favorite being the Wrestlemania box). If you want to sign up for any loot crate subscription you can use my code to receive $5 off of new crates.

Right, on to this week’s prompt word:


Another ball and I’m expected to tempt and please, yet no one will know each other’s identities. Dresses of Silk flowing across the floor, exotic furs, lace, leathers; his whore. Placed on a pedestal for all to find, ravaged and succulent, tasting the wine. Our eyes finally meet, can she see through my mask? Looking away was an impossible task.

Daily Post: Lollipop

Happy Thursday Novas! I wanted to write about today’s daily prompt word so you will be receiving the daily prompt today and the 5 sentence story tomorrow! Today’s post will be a short poem.

Daily Post Topic: Lollipop

Till my lungs collapse, I’m living this horrid dream,

What once possessed such promise, was nothing more than a gleam,

The prospects and allowances that were once to be,

Transformed and beguiled, a young, pretentious me.

I opened up to life, as a church will open it’s doors,

They admired and beheld, my graciousness once stored,

Giving to the world and never asking for keeps,

Meeting my best friend Arielle, who seemed just as sweet.

We conquered school together, leaving  hearts at every turn,

Arielle located my weakness, making sure I was to burn,

Arielle came into my life, like a whirlwind of friend,

The sweetest smile you’d ever seen; the deadliest of weapons,

She sucked all of the life, out of a grateful soul,

Her body wrapped in poison; “I’m your friend” she told,

Silently my spirit drained, a most decrepit health,

Making me her lollipop, my friends, my heart, my wealth,

Blindly I allowed her to take what she would pursue,

Take care with whom you allow in your life; an unrecognizable you.

WWE 30 Day Challenge Days 16-20

Happy Thursday Novas! We are continuing with the 30 day blogging challenge and today we will be answering questions 16-20. This weekend will be an overload of WWE content as I have received my WWE Slamcrate this morning (the unboxing post will be up tomorrow) and my traditional predictions and preview post for the WWE PayPerView event on Sunday will go up on Saturday! Let’s jump into the questions!

Day 16- Most Underrated WWE Wrestler

tyeI would say the most underrated wrestler at the moment will be Tye Dillinger. Don’t get me wrong, many will know the Superstar from NXT as he was a crowd favorite, but as of right now WWE does not seem to be doing much with the Perfect 10.  I would love to see him have a developing story line and be featured more.

Day 17- Most Overrated WWE Wrestler

The answer to this question is pretty funny. A few months ago, I would have said that AJ Styles was overrated because I didn’t like him that much. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great brock Superstar but I didn’t like his character. Now, I’m going to say both Samoa Joe and Brock Lesner! Joe is really annoying coming in as “The Destroyer” and Brock, let’s face it… we don’t see him enough for him to be this hyped up.

Day 18- Favorite WWE Entrance

Currently, I love Seth Rollin’s entrance, Brock Lesner, Kevin Owens and The Hardy Boyz! Oh yeah, can’t forget Naomi, her entrance is really good. Of all time The Shield’s entrance is definitely up there along with Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock! Their entrances were iconic and unforgettable.

Day 19- Favorite WWE Merch

Merchandise for WWE is a great way to support your favorite Superstars! Currently, I’m looking to get Roman Reigns new shirt with the Superman punch on the front. My favorite pieces of merchandise currently owned are the WWE United States Championship Belt, Seth Rollins Shirt and Finn Balor Shirt. Oh yeah, my Alexa Bliss wrist cuffs as well. I’m looking to get the Wrist cuffs for Reigns and I wouldn’t mine getting Heath Slater’s “I Got Kids, I Need This Job” shirt because it’s hilarious. CsSfuQuUAAEgS7w

Day 20- Favorite Current Smackdown Female Wrestler

Hands down Naomi! Since she has revamped her character I have been feeling the glow!

Thank you for tuning in to this week’s installments of the 30 day challenge! Next week I will have days 21-25 posted! What are your answers to the questions? Are you watching Battlegrounds this weekend? Let’s Talk WWE!

Enjoy your Thursday!
