Smuggler’s Bounty Box (spoilers)

I got my smuggler’s bounty box today! So if your not interested in seeing spoilers do not proceed! 
  
Box is so pretty!


Poe Dameron pin and BB-8 patch.

   
C3Po mug, flocked Chewbacca Pop Vinyl figure, pretty amazing t-shirt with all the resistance characters in Funko Pop form! I typically take the figures out of the box but I may keep this guy in. 

All in all I am loving these boxes. They drop every two months and run 39.95$. With the amount of stuff you get Star Wars related, I say it is worth the money. This is my second one so far. Out of all the subscription boxes I’ve had over the years, I rank this one as number one. Can’t wait to see what’s inside march’s! Hope you enjoyed this short and sweet post.

Unmasked Kylo Ren

I don’t think I could contain my excitement for unmasked Kylo Ren  from The Force Awakens. He is probably one of my favorite characters from the new movie.

Thanks for reading. 

What am I Grateful for?

Hello again Loves! Let’s get a little serious and talk about gratitude. As someone who works in a retail environment you realize early on that it is a selfless job. People will be mean and nasty. They will complain to corporate when you don’t allow them to return something. That’s the nature of customer service. At the end of the day though, the people who are down right mean shouldn’t affect you.

Anyway, today was one of those days where I was very overwhelmed because of customers. Now that I am home, I realized that I am extremely grateful for my job. For numerous reasons. One, is the customers who are amazing. Without them, they would make the people who are terrible stick out more. The customer who say thank you after you go above and beyond for them. I’m grateful that I am able to be extremely active at my job because honestly I don’t want to go to the gym. I’m sure if I did I would lose that extra ten pounds. I’m grateful that I am able to be around my passion, Books. I get so many different recommendations for different books to read, that my list is beyond possible to finish before I die.

Let’s get off the topic of work and move to Coffee. I am grateful for the java that flows from my coffeepot in the morning. The ability to add milk to the mixture makes the experience all more satisfying. Now I know what your thinking, Coffee? Haven’t you talked enough about Coffee already in your last blog post. Well, no I haven’t. My ritual when it comes to coffee is pretty simple. It is  nothing special to anyone but me. When I wake up in the morning, I start fumbling around to get the coffee closer to inside my body as fast as possible. Finally after the excruciating long time it takes to make the nectar of the gods, I sit down at my desk and begin doing my morning internet routine. On days like today where I was running late and need to grab coffee. My favorite stop is Panera. Their hazelnut brew coffee is to die for. So creamy and smooth.

I realized that I have a routine for everything I do…

Anyway those are two things I am grateful for today. There are thousands of other things but that would take years to write them all down. Comment down below things your grateful for or even do your own Grateful post. Thanks again for reading!

Letter to My Teen Self

Dear Young Naive Jen,

Hi. You probably don’t recognize or even know who I am. I’m 14 years in the future you. I can honestly say that you have changed for the better. Things were crazy during High School. The things you thought you were going to grow up to be didn’t pan out. The people that said they would be your “Friends Forever” didn’t last very long. You had no idea what was going to happened when 21 hit. You powered through it though. There are thousands of things I wish I could of told you. That those boys that broke your heart don’t matter now. All those girls who made fun of you for being fat are fat themselves. That it’s okay to be sad. It’s okay to cry. It is not okay for people to walk all over you like people did. If you don’t feel comfortable about someone touching you. It’s okay to say No.

All those people that you knew in High School mean nothing now. You have a whole new batch of friends that love you for who you are. I mentioned before about all those boys. They are boys for a reason. That there are men out there that will actually care and love you for who you are. I seem to go back to that statement. Love you for who you are because you don’t need to be someone your not. You don’t need to impress those people with fancy clothes. You are doing well for yourself now. You may think this is super cheesy because your trying your damnest to be a badass punk kid. I wish I could hug you and tell you that its going to be okay. That the hardest moment in your life has yet to come. Losing someone who was always there for you no matter what. Your parents do love you and were trying to understand your angsty life style. That no matter how many times you change your mind on what you wanted to be when you grew up. Your parents supported you. Your parents were your number one fans through all the bullshit.

So, chin up jelly bean. Life does get better you just have to wait it out.

All the Horror Movies I Won’t Be Watching

  
Let’s do a back story. Go back to 1995, I was 8 years old. Life was pretty solid for me. I had a group of friends, loving parents. All was good until I went over to a friends house for a sleepover. What did they want to watch? Horror movies. Now I wasn’t banned from seeing anything really. I had watched parts of Pulp Fiction and I was fine. Horror movies were a whole other ball game though. First it was Child’s Play, Then Child’s Play 2, Child’s Play 3. After that night, I had horrible nightmares of Chucky. I couldn’t even go to the bathroom for fear of him coming out of the toilet. My eight year old brain was ruined and fucked up after that. I’ve always had a pretty vivid imagination. So horror movies always go the extra mile in my head.

“That could be me!”

“What if I was in the situation.”

“Oh, I wouldn’t do that.”

When ever I engulf myself in certain things, I have crazy dreams about it. I recently had a dream about a Pumpkin Spice Mocha Frap. I blame that on work. I’m running off topic.

Courteously  of my loving boyfriend, I have seen two horror movies on Netflix. The Host and Let the Right One In. Both were amazing and moved up to my favorite movies I seen last year. I’m not a movie buff by any means so take what I’m saying with a grain of salt.

Now I have seen Scream, Scream 2, Candyman, Candyman 2, The Exorcist. Will I ever watch them again? Hell no! When I got to the part in The Exorcist where he head was spinning, I ran out of my friends house out of sheer terror. I had great friends growing up…

ICandyman I would watch again. Only because it was based in Chicago.

Horror movies just don’t appease to me like they do for other people. I don’t get the gore for the sake of gore effect. I don’t get the music choices that make me jump. I hate it. Just makes my anxiety flare. Now excuse me while I go cry in a corner. In all honesty, I probably would like horror films if I wasn’t forced at such a young age to watch them. THANKS FRIENDS! Anyway, as requested. This is my list of Horror movies I will never watch. All the ones I’m listing are on Netflix. You can totally watch them for me!

Zombeavers, Dark Skies, The ABCs of Death, Dead Silence, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, The Awakening, Proxy, Dust Devil, Children of the Corn, Stage Fright, Frankenstein’s Army, The Prophecy, Wolfcop, Teeth, Europa Report, Dead Snow, V/H/S/2, The Taking of Deborah Logan, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Grabbers, The Fly, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Honeymoon, John Dies at the End (I liked the book. :)), The Sacrament, Tales from the Darkside: The Movie, Saw, The Nightmare, Late Phases, Here Comes the Devil, Maniac, Funny Games, Creep, Mad Ron’s Prevues From Hell, Scream 2, We Are What We Are, American Mary, The Monster Squad, Pontypool, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, I Saw the Devil, American Psycho, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Hellraiser, Rosemary’s Baby, The House of the Devil, Starry Eyes, Stake Land, The Babadook, Day of the Dead, Re-Animator, The Omen, I got tired listing them all….

Now! Your feedback is requested for my next blog post! Tell me what I should write about next! PG please!
