Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! As most of you already know, August 11th was my 1 Year Blogiversary!! I can’t believe it’s been a full year since I started my blogging journey with you all and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me in the future! So, THANK YOU all for sticking it out with me while I got the hang of this blogging thing!
Oh, yeah… I was so caught up in the afterglow of my 1 Year Blogiversary, that I almost forgot to mention this, but I have glasses now! My eyesight has been kind of shaky for a little while now, nothing serious, just a bit fuzzy when I read to much. So, I went in for an eye exam and they prescribed reading glasses…
What do you think? Do they suit me?

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I… am… finally… done… with… the… 30 Day Anime Challenge!!! All I have to say about the challenge as a whole right now is, NEVER AGAIN…at least not anytime soon…
I kid, I kid… I had a lot of fun with the challenge and I really hope that you guys had as much fun reading my posts as I had writing them!! In other news, I was featured in Lita Kino’s Blogger Feature Friday post! I am so humbled to have been featured by such an wonderful blogger! So I want to extend yet another THANK YOU to Lita Kino, you are an amazing blogger and I am so happy that you took the time to visit my tiny corner of the internet! Lita is such a great blogger and I have had the pleasure of chatting with them both here on WordPress and on Twitter; so if you haven’t already check out her blog it’s one of the best!!
Finally, I went to a DC Pokemon GO Meetup Event and it was a blast!! I had so much fun exploring the Capital and meeting fellow Pokemon Trainers from the District! My legs may be sore and I have a bit of a tan, but the Pokemon at the Capital were top notch! After less than 10 minutes of walking we ran into a Rhydon, an Onix, and a whole host of other Pokemon! Oh yeah, and my Team, Instinct was really holding it down! Not only were we dropping Lures, but we were taking Gyms left and right!! Sure it rained a bit, but it wasn’t enough to keep us in the District down!!

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Okay guys I have some big news… Remember the summer job I mentioned back in June? Well, my paperwork was finally finished and I finally have a start date: My official start date is August 1st! Woohoo!!! So what kind of job is it? I will be doing what I love to do, research! My alma mater received a grant from the Department of Health to take part in a public health research project and I was brought on to work on the data analysis portion of the project! I’ll also be administering some of the surveys for the project too!! But, what’s really exciting about this project is that it is completely run and operated by women of color!! So I am doubly exciting to be working with such a dynamic team of women, doing something that I love!!
So what is going to top that? Not much, the rest of my week seems pretty mundane in comparison, but I’m gonna share it anyway!! I saw the new Ghostbusters movie, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it! The film was much better than I anticipated… Hmm, let’s see, I went to Six Flags with some friends which was fun until I realized I’d gotten sun burn on my face… Reason #1 why I limit my outdoor activity time during the Summer…

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So, it’s been over a week since Pokemon Go was released in the US and boy have I been working out my leg muscles… Unfortunately the weather where I live has been 90° F and up, so every time I set foot outside I end up dripping with sweat…
I still have yet to start my Summer Job, but I did participate in one of the Team Meetings so maybe that means my paperwork is almost done… Right? At this point I just want to start! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy doing nothing all day as much as the next person, but too much free time just makes me lazy. Finally, a special announcement…
I hit 100 Followers this past week!! I can’t believe that there are that many people out there that enjoy reading my awkward ramblings and reviews!! I started this blog almost a year ago, and I never would have imagined that it would grow into the blog it is today! I want to thank each and every one of you guys out there in the WordPress community for being so supportive and welcoming! I have met some amazing bloggers and made some amazing new friends! I still have more stories to tell and more lessons to learn, and I sincerely hope you guys will tough it out with me far into the future!

In other news, Pokemon GO finally came out in the States so I have been getting way more exercise than usual. On the flip side my phone battery life is taking a nose dive while my data usage is through the roof, but it’s totally worth it!

Here I am again, writing another one of these in advanced… For those of you not in the States, this weekend is the 4th of July Weekend, so I will be out of town from Friday to Monday. My BF and I will be driving up to New York this year for the holiday since one of my younger brothers decided to come up from Tennessee for the break!
In other news, I finally announced that I will be completing the 30 Day Anime Challenge during the month of July!!! I am super excited about this and I really hope that you guys like it! On a side note, I am still waiting for my paperwork to be processed before I can start my Summer job… I have a tentative start date of Tuesday, July 5th… so fingers crossed! I also went out and bought Zero Time Dilemma upon its release so I am super stoked to play that once I finish my current playthrough of VLR!!

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This has been a pretty slow week for me… Like super duper slow… I had zero motivation to do anything, so I spent the week binge watching The Incredible Hulk television series on Netflix…
I also found out that I will not be starting my summer job on Monday, instead I have to wait another week… something about paperwork delays… So, I will have one final week of summer left before I have to get my act together and do that adulting thing.
