13th Doctor Revealed!

The much awaited announcement now that Peter Capaldi has finished his run as the Doctor. SURPRISE! Ladies and gents we have a lady doctor! It will be very interesting to see how the new seasons play out. I did like Jodie Whitaker’s performance in Broadchurch so she has potential. I don’t hate the idea like some but I am still kind of holding out for a ginger doctor. Ha. Wouldn’t that bring the new generation full circle since it has been an aspiration for the Doctor??

Congrats Felicia Day!

What a surprise this is! Felicia Day will be a new mom to a daughter! She has been so quiet about her pregnancy and now it makes sense to why she hasn’t been on social media a lot or drinking a ton of coffee like she does on her snapchat. Wonder which fandom she will teach her about first??

Goodbye 2016

What a whirlwind of a year it has been. Mine was actually decent considering most people will tell you that 2016 was the worst year ever.

*Went to my second “Best Coast” concert even though it was a complete disaster due to the weather and the fact that we had to wait until the very end to see them. The things we do for the bands we love haha

*Met Felicia Day! She was doing a book tour and reconsidered her stop in Carrboro, NC due to the HB2 Bill.  My roomies and I got to meet her, received signed a signed copy of her book, and she signed my Charlie POP doll! Click here to see 🙂

*Two concerts back to back weekends in June! Ellie Goulding with my sister and the 1975 with my best friend/concert buddy.

*Pokemon Go. Need I say more?? This app took over my life and needless to say I got obsessed! My dream of becoming a pokemon trainer became a reality!

*August 2016 was the highlight of my year! I was able to go all the way across the pond to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.. IN PERSON!! Took every fiber of my being to leave London. It was so hard. It’s a magical place and everyone should go at least once!

*Won tickets to the Game of Thrones Experience in March 2017! The music of game of thrones in person. I can’t wait! Who knew that actually filling out those entry forms would actually pay off. I never win usually but this time I did!

*Glass Animals is another one of my favorite bands. Originally from the UK. Raleigh, NC was their first tour stop and it was fantastic! They sounded so good live and it is another concert for my live music track record 🙂

*Election 2016… what an epic fail… no good candidates to choose from and America decides to chooses the worst one of the bunch. I won’t go into a rant but it is going to be a crazy next 4 years.

*When your alma mater is hosting a concert of a band that you really like.. the answer is to go see them! The 1975 decided to come back through NC and I originally wasn’t going to go but my friend Brittany started a new job that allowed her to have weekends off so she bought my ticket as a belated birthday gift.

*A new game shop opened near me in Winston Salem, NC. We got to talking to the owners and expressed our interest in wanting to play D&D. Yes, dungeons and dragons D&D. We had no idea how or where to start because trying to dive in head first is a bit overwhelming but thanks to 3 Blind Dice, we now play weekly on Wednesdays.

ALSO.. Let’s not forget those we have lost: David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Anton Yelchin, Gene Wilder, Florence Henderson, George Michael, Carrie Fisher,
