Review of Civil Blood (Best Left in the Shadows #2) by Mark Gelineau and Joe King

Today we have Civil Blood, the second book in the Best Left in the Shadows series by Mark Gelineau and Joe King. This book came out last month but I was only able to read it a couple of weeks ago. I read it in one sitting not only because it’s a novella but it was fast-paced and so easy to read.

Support Philippine Ultimate in the World Ultimate and Guts Championships 2016

Back in 2012, Team Philippines sent a Mixed (men and women) team and an Open (all men) team to compete in the World Ultimate and Guts Championships (WUGC) held in Sakai, Japan. The Mixed team finished 7th overall, a big jump from being #14 at the start of the tournament, while the Open team bagged the Spirit Award. Not bad, eh?

Last year, Team Philippines sent a Mixed team, Women’s team and Open team to the Asia Oceanic Ultimate Championships in Hong Kong. All three teams were in the top 3 of their divisions with the Mixed team bagging the gold and the Women’s and Open teams bagging bronze. Cool, right?

This year, WUGC will be held in London and there will be three Philippine teams competing – a Mixed team, a Women’s team and a Men’s Masters team (33 years old and over). How awesome is that?

Watch eeeet: Stories I wish I had written [contains stuff about old movies]

There are times when you encounter a story that’s so trippy and interesting and totally something you dig, and you just can’t help but wish that you wrote that story or that you can write something as close to fantastic as that story. I mean, you know what I mean, right? It could be a book or a movie – anything really – that makes you wish you thought of it first.

I haven’t been much of a reader for the last year or so, so these fantastic stories I’m referring to are actually movies that I’ve seen in the last few months. Just a warning, this post may contain some spoilers so if you haven’t seen any of these films – do a quick scroll, hurry! – and don’t want to know what happens in these movies, I suggest you turn away from this post now. Turn away, friend, and save yourself from, er, spoilers about old movies. Amsorrehhh..

I’m a sucky blogger, but check out these cool things!

I really do suck as a blogger. Earlier this year I said I would roll out an updated version of my Going Freelance series and I haven’t done it. GAH. I’m really sorry about that, folks. I do intend to update that thing this year, but I just haven’t been in an “updating” mood for the past few weeks. In fact, I haven’t been in a “writing” mood for the past few MONTHS, which means I’ve been ridiculously unproductive work-wise. I haven’t been reading much either. I read a few books in January, but only read one in Feb and I am now behind my monthly reading goal of two books plus a classic. Yes, I’m a sucky reader, too.

And that’s not all. I haven’t played ultimate in months! I have this crazy eye thing right now. My left eye basically has limited movement and it causes me to have double vision when I look to my left. It’s crazy and it’s being treated and all that, but I haven’t been playing ultimate because I’d be totally useless on the field with this sucky vision thing.

Yep, many things are sucky at the moment, but it isn’t all bad. I have a lot of awesome things to look forward to this year. And not having ultimate in my life is forcing me to consider other things I can do like maybe focus on starting on my friggin’ book or finally completing a yoga challenge. HAH! Yeah, I think about all these things but I haven’t actually done anything. I know, I just really suck at errything right now. But I’m trying, I promise!

Anyway, since this post is really random, let me share with you some random stuff I’m enjoying or trying out right now.

Wallcat –  I’m really loving this wallpaper app for Mac. You basically get a different gorgeous wallpaper every day. You can choose from three themes: Gradients, Structure, and Fresh Air. My wallpapers for the past few days have included beautiful images of mountains and oceans. For example, THIS is my wallpaper for the day. Gorgeous, right?

Happier – I just downloaded this app the other day. It’s supposed to help you develop a ‘gratitude habit’ through sharing small ‘happy moments’ every day and help you have a happier life. I’m tired of the negativity I see on my Facebook feed so I’m  giving this one a try. It really looks promising!

Neko Atsume – Apparently this kitty collector game has been around for a while but I’ve only discovered it a few weeks ago. The game is pretty simple. You have a yard and you buy toys and food to leave around your yard to entice the kitties to come hang out. And you take photos of the kitties and save them in your Catbook. It’s just really light and fun! If there was a dog version of this I would get it in a heartbeat. The game is also available for Android.

Review: Broken Banners (A Reaper of Stone Book 2) by Mark Gelineau and Joe King

I’m actually late in posting this review because Broken Banners, the follow-up to A Reaper of Stone was released several days ago. But, better late than never, right?

I’m going to tell you right now that I’ve been a big fan of the work by authors Gelineau and King ever since I read Reaper, so I’m pretty much always excited about every new book in the series. So far I haven’t been disappointed. The Ascended series has all the elements of fantasy that I love and please check out the cover, yeah? This series has some pretty gorgeous covers.
