A video for you to enjoy!

The first time I watched this I started crying because I was laughing so hard.
I now know the first things to buy when I get my paycheck:
  • roomba
  • shark costume for Finn
  • duckling

Nerdy Wordy Wednesday

I've always thought this was a neat word ever since I memorized Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem The Eagle in 4th grade. For those of you not familiar with that poem, here it is:

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

Zombies, Run!

I don't know if you have ever heard about the fitness app, Zombies, Run! But I'm here today to open your eyes to what is probably one of the greatest things ever.

Zombies, Run! is an interactive fitness app and probably the only reason why I'm still staying on top of my online fitness class. When you run, jog, walk, hike, or whatever it delivers a story to you through your headphones. With each mission you evade zombies, collect supplies, build up your town, and get closer to solving the big outbreak mystery of the zombie virus. You can go outside or on a treadmill and listen to your own music in between the audio clips. You will have to outrun zombies occasionally but the good thing is if you get caught, you don't die, (phew!) instead you loose supplies. Your player, Runner 5 (my favorite number!) is tasked with 30 minute (or you can set them to an hour) long missions to retrieving supplies or spying on rival towns!

Convinced yet? Zombies, Run! has just released their second season today! I am over the moon excited to go for my walk today! This app is creative and motivational and will not disappoint you! It's also my favorite and fills me with a strange mixture of excitement and paranoia every time I go out. Maybe it's just me and my runaway imagination but I occasionally have to remind my self that my neighborhood is not really infested with zombies. Of course it doesn't help when I often pretend that all my neighbors are actually zombies.
Find it in the app store or visit their official website here
Happy running!

Wet and Rainy Adventure Playlist

For my fitness class this semester I have to go on a 30 minute walk at least five times a week. In order to make it less of a bore, I like to refer to it as an adventure and no adventure is ever complete without a soundtrack. Thus I give you my recipe for a peaceful 35 minute walk/jog/bike ride adventure during this wet and rainy season. Enjoy!

Ellie Goulding - Anything Could Happen
Anna Kendrick - Cups (Your Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone)
The Lumineers - The Dead Sea
Birdy - Skinny Love
A Fine Frenzy - It's Alive
The Head And The Heart - Rivers And Roads
Lily Kershaw - As It Seems
Mumford & Sons - Hopeless Wanderer
Calvin Harris ft. Florence + The Machine - Such Sweet Nothing
First Aid Kit - In The Hearts Of Men

Feel free to let me know if you think another song should be included or one of these left out!

Nerdy Wordy Wednesday

My hair is always in an elflock when I wake up in the I know there are probably little elves that come and play with it in my sleep. That's actually a little creepy....

Little April Showers

I know I've been a little non-existent around here the past couple weeks. Truth be told it's that part in the semester when professors realize that they still have tons to teach you so they try to cram all their knowledge into you in an accelerated amount of time. (Does anyone know what I'm talking about?) So I've had a whole lot of information to learn and homework to complete and to be honest, it's been rough!

I have big dreams but little hopes that April will bring some relaxation my way. We've been getting a lot of lovely rain lately which has been delightful. I adore thunderstorms :)

When I was a little girl I used to love Bambi. (Really I have always loved any Disney movie!) Something reminded me of this little humdinger today and I just had to share it! The animation is just brilliant!

The video in turn reminded me of when I went on a nature walk a few days ago and snapped some pictures of little animal homes.

This month I am...
