Snow Days & Tiny Houses

The tiny house movement is among us!  I heard about it maybe a week or two ago and then watched a documentary about it on Netflix.  I do think that people own too much stuff and I could probably throw out 1/4 of my possessions and be totally fine, but I don’t think I could live in a house that is only 120 square feet.

A Society Without Cars

My car broke down yesterday.  For like the 3rd time in a year.

I have a Honda which I was told is super reliable, but so far that has proven to be not true.  It is getting looked at and hopefully will be a quick and easy fix.  I can’t help but hope that I live to be a part of a society where cars are no longer the main form of transportation.  I need something more reliable.  Or I need more money to buy something actually reliable.

Pretty much every car I’ve ever had has been one that had consistent problems.

How is your luck with cars?

I Started A YouTube Channel!

Drumroll please…….


It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while and over the past month I’ve been thinking of different ideas and working with a friend to create some graphics for the channel and videos.

The channel is called “Let’s Shake On It” and I’ll make two videos a week.  On Mondays I will be posting vlogs about life.  On Thursdays it will be a cooking show of sorts where I will create different themed milkshakes to celebrate an event in history that happened on that day.  I’m very excited about it!

If you are interested in it and getting updates I would encourage you to like and subscribe to the channel on YouTube as well as checking out the twitter account @shakeoftheweek for video updates.

Mermaid Man!

Last night was Halloween and I dressed up as Mermaid Man from Spongebob.


I went to a trunk-or-treat and parked my car and handed out candy to the kids.  A lot of kids (and adults) recognized me and kept asking where Barnacle Boy was.  It was tons of fun!

What did you dress up as?
