Korn Countdown – Day 8

Today I would like to talk about a song that not only is with Jonathan Davis, but is also with another good band, Orgy. The song is “Revival” and let me tell you it can rock your socks off! The low growl in the voice and the rock/techno music make this song just a whole mess of happy! Orgy / JD – Revival


Korn Countdown – Day 7

Day 7 of the Korn countdown belongs to the song System from the Queen of the Damned soundtrack! I loved this movie since Jonathan Davis sang all of the songs and because Stuart Townsend is awesome. Though I will agree it was weird to see his voice come out of someone else’s mouth! Check it out here – Korn – System


Day 5 and 6 of the Korn Countdown!

Day 5 – “My Gift To You” (Track 25 on the album Follow the Leader) – Bagpipes, bagpipes, bagpipes! This song has….you guessed it amazing bagpipes! Not only that, but this song is deep and dark with great vocals! Korn – My Gift To You

Day 6 – “The Past” ( Track 8 on album Korn III – Remember Who You Are) – I love the overall tone of this song and the lyrics just seem to hit home. Korn – The Past

Stay tuned for more Korn days!


Korn Countdown Day 2, 3, and 4

Dang busy weekend not allowing me to post!

Countdown Continued:

Day 2 – “Y’all Want a Single” (Track 12 from the album Take A Look In The Mirror) . Just listen to that opening beat and the “Boom Boom Boom Boom.” What more could you want? Korn – Y’all Want a Single

Day 3 – “Word Up” (Track 2 from the Greatest Hits Album). Korn’s version of “Word Up” is awesome! I can just car dance to this song all day long! Korn – Word Up

Day 4 – This day is brought to you by my husband. I let him pick for today. He would like to recommend “K@#O%!”. This song is track 8 from the album Life is Peachy is in in fact just crazy! His reasoning for loving this song is because “any song that can say ‘Kentucky fried Kung-pow c**t’ is just awesome!” Korn – K@#0%!

Stay Tuned for more Countdown to Korn!


50 Shades update and 19 Days of Korn

First off….Dana over at DaneTrain.com decided to challenge me to reading the 50 Shade trilogy. I took her on with this since I have suffered though the Twilight series and Mockingjay.   I am about 75% completed with the first book and I can say that I just cannot stand the writing. It is like reading porn…well poorly written porn. I swear that every chapter has at least two sex scenes. And it seems like it is written by a five year old. But I digress, I will write a review on the entire book when I finish it.

Now onto more important matters! So on June 19th I will be seeing Korn in concert and I am beyond excited! Because of this I have decided to take after the 12 days of Christmas and start the 19 days of Korn! I will post a song that I love by Korn everyday (hopefully) and tell you why I love it.

Let’s start with a classic Korn song. “Blind” (Track 1 from the album Korn) Korn’s first album is amazing. It is hard, heavy, and I always thought the base line was killer. Do I have to mention that Jonathan Davis screaming is amazing. This is a classic Korn track and I will always love it. Check out the song and the video here: Korn – Blind


What….it’s been almost a year?!

So yes, I seems to have these types of posts…a lot. But I am back again and I hope this time there will be some constancy. Within the past year we have had a lot happen: my daughter turned one, I got a great job, and we just bought a house. Plus I am still in my graduate program. Basically I had no time for anything but breathing, and sometimes that was questionable! Since it has been a while, I wanted to just do a quick list of what I have been reading, playing, and watching in the past year.

Books Read:

  • Doomsday Book by Connie Willis (5 Stars!)
  • Dawn by Octavia Butler (4 Stars!)
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (4 Stars!)
  • Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (4 Stars!)
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (2 Stars :(  )

Currently Reading Books:

  • The Stand by Stephen King (Audiobook)
  • Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James (Kindle)

Games Played/Playing:

  • Civ 5 (Yes I still play this because it is amazing!)
  • WoW
  • Star Wars Online
  • Mass Effect 3
  • Alice in Wonderland 2
  • Rock Band 3

Workout Videos:

  • No More Trouble Zones by Jillian Michaels
  • Banish Fat Boost Metabolism by Jillian Michaels
  • Kickboxing Max by Jillian Michaels
What I am most looking forward to:
  • Diablo 3…..oh heck yeah 3 am!!!!
  • Prometheus…..Alien prequel? I THINK SO!
  • Reading the Harry Potter series

So it doesn’t seem like I have done that much right?! Well I have not, at least in the way of working out, reading, and gaming. In fact I have mostly been having fun playing with the baby. She is so wonderful and I am so blessed to have her. At 15 1/2 months now, she is running, jumping, singing, dancing, and talking up a storm. However, I am not able to spend every moment of everyday with her like I once was since I am now working a full time job (that I actually love!). But because of this job, we have been able to buy our first home so I know that even though I cannot be a stay-at-home mom, I am still doing the best for my daughter.

I have plans to discuss all of these books and continue to talk about ones that I am reading currently.

Interested in other book blogs? Then check out what Dana has to say over at DaneTrain.com!

PS: I will be concluding each blog post with a quote from a movie or book. Answer right and get an e-hug! Tonight…as easy one:

“You stay classy San Diego.”

Oh and don’t Google….I will know if you Google!


Life as I know it…

Things are going back to normal, at least I am making them go back to normal. My husband is finally back to school and I can go back to some sort of routine. I am watching the news, getting up early, and working on homework early rather than waiting until Thursday to start. What I really need is a planner, one that I can write in and gather my thoughts and to-dos all in one place. I would really like a daily planner, though I could get along with a weekly, I just think that daily is way nicer to work with. That way, I could write down all that I need to do for the day like homework, reading, and working out.  I would use an online planner that would connect to my iPhone but I have yet to find one. Any suggestions? Right now I was messing around with Hotmail Calender, but I am not sure how I feel about it. Since I have  a five month old, I know that things can be knocked out of whack and I would probably not finish all that I need to get done, but at least I would not forget.

I started walking with the baby today. I figured I could do 2 miles in the morning and 2 in the evening. She really enjoys the walks and it is good for both of us. Plus videos (if I have time), Zumba on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s and a healthy diet, I will get in better shape in no time. It is hard to eat healthy though in the house we live in since we are living with so many people. Most will only eat processed food and things that are horrible for you. But since we are a little low on the money side, I have to eat what is in the house. A friend of mine told me how to make homemade granola bars, which when she made them were delish! I would love to try to make them and to buy fruit to eat. Plus, she also taught me how to make homemade baby food which is more cost effective and healthier for the baby. Once some money comes in, I will be practicing to make all of the new foods.I want to get my husband, daughter, and I to get on the right track. Anyone know a good website where I could find healthy recipes?

Gaming is something I do not have much time for, but I would love to get back into raiding in WoW. Another thing I would like to do is crafts. Not sure which kind, but something fun and easy. Maybe make a blanket for the baby, or clothes. I could paint bird houses too or even create organizational tools. Anyone know a good place where I could look at craft ideas?

I also need to work on my blogs more. As you can see I have not had that much time to do that, but I love to write. It would be nice to also write my novel as well. Last but not least, I would like to read more. I LOVE to read and frankly I could do it all the time, but it is hard with the baby and with all the other things I want to do.

As you can see I really need to get organized! I need to work at things all day and not waste time just sitting around and watching TV all day. What are your organizational tips? Any helpful advice?


Updates!

It has been a little bit since I have updated so I thought I would post what I have been up to.

On the 26th of May, Remy turned 4 months old. I cannot believe how big she is getting! She is already 15 pound 12 ounces and 23.75 inches long! Remy is now even eating solids, which is such a fun thing. She loves bananas, apples, and sweet potatoes. She can sit up supported, grab at toys (which she will ultimately put in her mouth), and can roll over from belly-to-back and back-to-belly as well!. Everyday is just fun with her because she is the joy in my life! Remy likes to watch cartoons now too, not that she understands them, but she will giggle at things. Spongebob and Dora are her favorite! I love every moment with my wonderful daughter.

I have been working out and trying to lose weight for a little over a month now. And I have to say that things are going pretty well, but I need to step it up a bit. So far, I have lost about 10 pounds! There is still a lot to lose, but I think it is a great start. I have been watching what I eat and working out daily. Currently, I attend a Zumba class every Tuesday and Thursday and I love it. I never thought I would be one to do Zumba, but I feel it really has changed the way I work out. I feel that it makes cardio bearable. I also will try to do a work out DVD everyday, at least 5 times a week. I am a huge fan of Jillian Michaels and her style. I love No More Trouble Zones and have just started her kettlebell workouts. Plus, I also have some Zumba DVDs that I am going to throw in there. Though it can be hard to work out when you have a baby, but I try very hard to meet my goals and am going to create a schedule for myself that I will attempt to follow daily. I have also started a food journal to help watch what I eat and monitor fats and calories. It is a slow going process but I know it will be worth it in the end.

As far as writing and reading, I have said before and I will say again, everything is slow going with a baby! May took a huge hit in the bookclubs I am participating in and in writing my novel. But this month I am vowing to change…yes I know I say that all the time, but this time I mean it. I am going to start setting aside more time to read and write and basic time just for myself. Who knows, maybe I will get more posts in if I do this! Plus, on Monday I start school! I cannot even believe it. I will be continuing my MBA program. I am so excited to do so.

Well, here is to hoping I can start getting on more of a schedule, especially with school starting.

 

What has everyone else been up to?
