Violin Recital: The Adrenaline, the Excitement, and the fact that it’s tomorrow

So a little life update. I’m having my first solo violin recital tomorrow. In translation–I’m going to play like 33 minutes of classical music onstage with just a pianist behind me instead of a symphony orchestra around me. The difference is akin to dueling versus being part of a Roman legion.

Tolkien Reading Day 2021!

All hail the Ring-bearer and the master of words who brought us all to Middle Earth. It’s Tolkien Reading Day, everyone! So grab your nearest Hobbit, eat second breakfast, take a hike, and of course, start reading. In case you are one of the many (like me) who has lamentably finished reading The Lord ofContinue reading “Tolkien Reading Day 2021!”

Matcha Tea

So as promised, here is my recipe for a matcha tea/latte, as requested by the lovely bloggers The Arbitrary Fairy and F.A. Eid. I know it’s been a while since I mentioned it in my Liebster Award post. I wanted to include pictures and I’m not all that fabulous with a camera. So here goes!Continue reading “Matcha Tea”

The Liebster Award

A titanic thank-you to The Arbitrary Fairy for tagging me in my first ever blog award! I’m perhaps ridiculously pleased, but…I’m not even sure what a “Liebster” is. So I Googled it. I had a hunch it was German, like “lieblings” is favorite. Liebster translates as something closer to “darling” or “sweetheart.” Makes sense. SortContinue reading “The Liebster Award”

Life, the Universe, and Everything Symposium 2021 (Part II)

What could possibly be better than sitting snuggled up in a warm sweater with a pile of pillows attending LTUE panels with my fellow nerds as fluffy snow covers everything outside? Okay, maybe it didn’t have to be about -2° (about -18° for Ye Celsius Users) outside making my hands so dry that my knucklesContinue reading “Life, the Universe, and Everything Symposium 2021 (Part II)”

Life, the Universe and Everything 2021 (Writing Con!!!)

Okay, so Sunday I found out about this online con, and I’m freaking out a little bit because I know it’s going to be awesome. I need to back up a little bit. Life, the Universe and Everything Symposium is a convention for writers, artists, gamers, and filmmakers–storytellers of any type. And this year, dueContinue reading “Life, the Universe and Everything 2021 (Writing Con!!!)”

Writing Books (that have already been written…)

It happened again. I know I’m not alone. You come up with a thrilling idea, write a short story or even a novel, giddily tell all your friends, enter it to contests, give it to early readers… …and someone has already written it. And it’s fabulous! And it’s popular! And everyone loves it! And it’sContinue reading “Writing Books (that have already been written…)”

Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s

So I was up until almost 1:00 this morning watching The Return of the King. You could pretend to be surprised. The odyssey started on January 30th. This year a few loved ones and I decided to complete the challenge–to line it all up so Theoden says “So it begins” as the clock strikes twelve.Continue reading “Hobbity Cheer for New Year’s”

The 100 Followers Appreciation Post

Raising my glass (or tea tankard, as the case may be) to the lovely readers who have found something they like in BookmarkedOne! A hearty thank-you to you all. This wouldn’t be nearly as much fun writing to silent void. And I know. I’ve experience in both. I am aware I’m late to the partyContinue reading “The 100 Followers Appreciation Post”

A Very Happy Baggins Birthday

September 22, everyone! Happy birthday to our favorite hobbits, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. Here’s to the hope that you spent the day the way a true hobbit should–with good food, plenty of it, better music, the best of friends, and no socks or shoes. Or, you know, failing that, reading one of the best fantasyContinue reading “A Very Happy Baggins Birthday”
