Hey hey all you Heroes and Travelers out there today I’m bringing you all another super special awesome OWLS post!! If this is your first time here at Nice Job Breaking It Hero, you were probably linked here by Animepalooza over on youtube, she did a super special awesome video about Diplomacy in ACCA 13!! If you haven’t seen her video I highly suggest you do so, she did a phenomenal job!
Last December I mentioned that I’d joined OWLS: Otaku Warriors of Liberty and Self-Respect, a group of bloggers and vloggers that hope to spread a message of acceptance and understanding through thoughtful community activism!
So, in order to spread our message of self acceptance and tolerance, we’ve decided to hold Monthly Blog Tours! During Blog Tours, we each write individual theme posts on our blogs that promote our group’s values, with a bit of an otaku twist. November’s Blog Tour topic is Diplomacy!!

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers and Wandering NPCs! I know it’s not Friday… well, maybe it is somewhere in the world… maybe? *awkward laugh* I’ve been kind of AWOL with this old blog for the past few months, forgive me, I’ve been trying to get my life together, but I’m back… kind of. It’s gonna take me a bit to get everything back up and running (I’m a bit rusty), but I recently watched an animated show that I just had to write about! So, while the blogging spirit is flowing through me, I figured I’d best get this post out, before I get distracted again… This week’s Fangirl Moment post will be about… *Drumroll* Voltron: Legendary Defender!
Team Voltron (Front L-R) Pidge, Shiro ❤ , Keith (Back L-R) Hunk, Coran, Allura, and my boy LANCE KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *ahem* I mean Lance
Yeah, I got sucked into the Voltron fandom…. I mean, I’d seen a few reruns of the 80’s series when I was a kid, but I never really got into it. Giant robots and explosions weren’t my thing… okay, Power Rangers aside… So, when the reboot was announced I just didn’t pay it much mind. But, after seeing tons of fan art and hearing countless people praise the series, I figured why not give it a try… I’m lying, I finished watching Stranger Things 2 and I needed something to watch while I crocheted and Voltron seemed like the perfect background noise. I never dreamed I’d make it through the first episode, let alone binge all four seasons in the span of a week, but here we are and I NEED MORE!!! So, you guys get to listen to my rampant fangirl ramblings about Voltron! Yay!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! Okay so last week after I saw Doctor Strange, I found myself craving more Benedict Cumberbatch… so, I opened up Netflix and binge watched all three seasons of the BBC series, Sherlock. I’ve seen mixed reviews about the series; people either love it or they hate, so I really didn’t know what to expect from the show…
I didn’t expect to like this series as much as I did, but it only took me one episode and I was hooked! I’d be lying if I didn’t say Cumberbatch was the main reason I started watching the show, but the Martin Freeman’s facial expressions are what really kept me watching… I kid!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! I know I’m supposed to be on break, but I just had to write about this show…it would be criminal not to! This week I’m covering the Netflix original series that has me craving a hot cup of coffee! Yes, ladies and gents, I’m covering Marvel’s Luke Cage!!
If you all didn’t already know this, I’m a huge fan superhero films and comics. So when I saw that Netflix was teaming up with Marvel to bring another comic book hero to the small screen I was ready. But, when I saw that they were going to give the Blaxploitation era superhero, Luke Cage (aka. Power Man) his own series, let’s just say the premiere couldn’t come soon enough!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I’m covering a show that has recently been blowing up my various social media timelines and dashboards. Today’s post is about the insanely addictive Netflix original series, Stranger Things!
For weeks, everyone that I knew would rave about what a great show this was and how I just had to watch it… So a week or two ago, my bf and I hunkered down and watched the entire series on Netflix! We watched all eight episodes, which given our hectic schedules, too a few days to coordinate. But, oh my gosh, I get it now! I totally see what all the hype was about and I can’t wait for season 2!!

TGIF! Here we are again with another Fangirl Friday! This week I am covering a cartoon series that is…truly, truly, truly OUTRAGEOUS! Yup, that’s right I’m covering the 80’s animated show, Jem and the Holograms! So put on your legwarmers, grab your pink eye shadow and get ready for a glam rock experience you won’t soon forget! We’re taking a trip back to a simpler time, where most conflicts could be resolved with…musical battles?
I am definitely not an 80’s kid, so I didn’t grow up with the series, I only recently became acquainted with it, so rest assured, this is not a nostalgia fueled post. This show is definitely a product of the 80’s, so I’ll admit that some aspects of this show can seem pretty cheesy to a modern audience… But, for some reason as ridiculous as this show is, it still manages to suck you in. Maybe its the catchy songs, or maybe it’s the over the top glam fashion that permanently burns itself into your retina…
*We will not speak of that thing they called a movie…that was a tragedy and I will have none of that here…*

So I may have mentioned this before, but the guy I was seeing…and kind of hoping to marry broke up with me not too long ago. So I’m kind of somewhere between sad and bitter.
I guess that is kind of how I feel… (found somewhere on Pinterest)
So you may be asking yourself… “What do I do with all this free time?” You may not be ready to jump out into the dating scene, nor do you want to play the role of the third wheel to all of your stable coupled friends, so you find yourself at home browsing Netflix to distract yourself. A bleak outlook for some, but losing yourself in a couple of good movies or TV series that you were too busy to see when you were coupled up, may be just the time waster you need right now. And boy does Netflix deliver…at least right now it does…I’m sure that within a month or so some of these will have been removed (in that case try Hulu or Amazon Prime)…

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.”
Like when your boyfriend of five years breaks up with you, just when everyone you know is getting married or engaged. I mean come on, if I had a dollar for all the engagement notifications on my Facebook timeline…let’s just say I’d never have to budget my otome/otoge spending ever again…
It’s like the universe has a series of checks and balances that always manages to produce the worst possible outcome at the worst possible time…eerie! So lets make the best of a crappy situation…
