Daily Thoughts.......

I wish I could have something fun to say, but unfortunately for almost two weeks now, I've been out of it. Meaning, sick. First there was the cold. Next I had a cough, which ended up between bronchitis and pneumonia. I've gotten better, but nope - not doing cartwheels yet. I've been so out of it. Here I was all ready to write the nights away, catch up on books, and so on. I even had a goal to do at least a fifty minute workout everyday. I haven't done any of that. I've gotten back to where I'm starting to write more again and read late at night, but working out? Right now that's a long shot. Just walking for a long period of time, I feel exhausted. It's not as bad as it was last week luckily. I couldn't even walk to the printer which wasn't far without being ready to fall over.

I guess there is a bright side. I've gotten caught up on sleep. It's been so long since I've had eight hours a sleep for a night during the weekdays. Of course as I write this, I know I won't get eight hours tonight since I have to be up in eight hours, but I'm sure my bed will be calling me soon. Once I get back to my usual self, I'll miss those eight hours a night. Soon, it will be six or five hours. Which I know sounds bad, but my body got used to doing six hours. I am worried that my body will get used to around eight hours of sleep that it will take me forever to get used to my old schedule. But that's what coffee is for, right?

So yeah, this has been a pointless entry tonight. I did tell you I was making it a goal to write more in it. Hopefully, there will be a more interesting post soon. I guess if I do want to make one comment about my day. Do you ever look at someone and give them that fake smile, while thinking something probably not very nice? Yeah, that was me today. I hate when I get like that, but when people start becoming fake themselves or to a point you know you can't trust them. You can't help yourself. You have to put on an act. Ha, I guess I do have a post for another time. Stayed tuned. :)

Once Upon a Time "New York City Serenade" Thoughts

So tonight's Once Upon a Time. So many questions, yet again. Spoilers ahead. Please beware. If you don't want to be spoil. Come back after you watch the episode.

I'm not sure what to think of having the world of OZ interacting with our fairy tales. I never thought of Oz as a fairy tale. Of course though, I shouldn't be surprised. We have Robin Hood and there was Frankenstein. So I guess, why not Oz?

Will we see other characters from Oz?

The witch wants something from Regina. We know that - judging by the flying monkey giving the witch, Regina's blood. My question is, what could the witch want from Emma? How do I know the witch wants something? I could be wrong of course, but she must want something with her sending a flying monkey to New York City and the monkey becoming a human. Not just a human, but Emma's new boyfriend. What was the boyfriend's purpose? If Emma never took the potion, how far would the monkey go until Emma got herself in trouble. Is Henry at risk?

Speaking of the potion. Is that our first hint of Rumple? As far as I remember. He was the only one who could make the memory potion.

Hook said someone warned him by sending a note. My theory is Neal. I'm going to take a guess he didn't make it to Storybrooke, but knows what's going on and knew Emma was the answer to saving everyone.

That brings me to a dead end though because apart of me thinks Neal got Emma to come back by getting Hook involve, but after hearing other peoples theories - what if everyone in Storybrooke is a flying monkey? Did the witch write the note to get Emma back to Storybrooke where she can harm Emma?  We know the monkeys can turn into a human, so you have to wonder if everyone is normal in Storybrooke or a monkey. Could the real Snow White and Prince Charming still be in the enchanted forest?

I could go on, but I think that's enough for now.

One last thing, Hook. He is looking hot as always.

Forty years old? I got this!

Tap. Tap.

Is this thing on?

Remember me?

I feel like a bad, bad blogger. I kept saying. "I'll post everyday." Oops! I hope you can forgive me. I will try to do better. Definitely won't say everyday since we all know how that will turn out. So how have you been?

If only I could say I've been on an adventure and that's why you haven't heard from me. Unfortunately, I had been struck with laziness. It's very hard to recover sometimes from it. The sad thing is, it wasn't just this blog that was hit by laziness. My writing and so much more got hit.

It hit me a little when I turned thirty-four back in December that I wasn't where I thought I would be. I told my thirty-year old self that at the age of thirty-five, I would be achieving my goals. Well unless a miracle happens. I won't achieve the goal that I truly want. I won't be where I want to be.

Maybe it was being with my writer friends this weekend, but I realized that I need to get out of this funk and get moving. I know I won't get to where I want to be at thirty-five, but at least knowing I'm on my way there - will help. So I've decided I'm giving myself until I'm forty. I will achieve the one goal I have in my life. Which goal is that? Just wait and see..haha. I'm sure most will figure it out.

Let's just hope I'm not posting the same blog in 2019, when I turn forty. I've got this. I know I can do it. It will be hard at times due to life and little things like Facebook, I'm sure. But I can do this. One day at a time. Here is to the next six years.  Forty-year old self - here I come! Watch out!

Next step.......the book blog.

Yes or no, that is the question

So there is a big question going through my mind right now. One, I honestly can't answer. What is the question you ask? Well, the question is. Do I go to my 15th high school reunion? I don't even know if you can call it that. We're apparently getting together at a local restaurant. Although technically I think it's also a bar. Not sure. It's been a different restaurant a few times and I have yet to check it out.

Why is it a question for me? Well, I never went to my 10th year reunion. I didn't feel like it was right. All it was, was a bar. From what I heard not a lot of people showed up. I know it would be hard to get a lot of the people to go. I did graduate with over 800 people.

My whole issue was the fact, how many of those people would truly remember me? Sure, I had friends in high school and I still chat with a lot of them on Facebook. That is my main concern still about the 15th and probably will be about the 20th.

Honestly, how many people are going to see me walk through that door and go, "Robyn, it's so great to see you!" Maybe the people I've seen here and there through the years, but I bet you anything that no one will remember me.

Yes, again I had friends, but I was quiet unless you knew me. I would sit behind other students and no one even say anything to me. Many times I wondered if I smelled or maybe it was the outfit I wore. Who knows, maybe that's why I never felt bullied because I could hide easily. Don't get me wrong, I made friends, but sometimes not enough I guess. I'm not sure? Some of the people I hung around with, I'm pretty sure only hung around me because they had to.

Maybe about 80% of those people, I had made friends with? No longer talk to me. Not even after high school. Myspace came along and sure people added me. Some would chat here and there. Facebook comes along and what I find funny? People I never knew in school or never talk to anymore, want to be my friend.

I'm still waiting for some of them to say something to me on my timeline. I'll like or comment on something. Still no response from them. Was I just added so they could have more friends?

See and that is why I'm not sure I want to even attend my 15th high school reunion. How many people will be in that room and acknowledge or remember me? Who will promise to keep in touch?

Am I worried that someone from high school will read this? Yes and no. I'm hoping the friends I talk to still, realize it's not them. I can see them without a reunion, no problem. Through the years they have attempted to say hi or even hang out. Sure, it would be awesome to hangout some more, but I understand. We've gotten older. Any free time we get? We just want to chill out.

I know one or two people from high school will have some harsh words, I'm sure. Honestly, I don't care. I tried to be their friend and through the years, they could care less. So why should I let them bother me?

So should I or should I not go? Do I dare attempt to see what people have been up to? Will I just end up depressing myself because I'm not where I thought I would be when we graduated? Maybe at least see a few people I remember and have a good laugh. Or do I risk it and sit in the corner, planning my escape?

Once Upon a Time Thoughts

There are so many thoughts and questions running through my head right now, that I can't post all of them. Unless you want a novel. If you see something I didn't discuss? Please feel free to comment below. I'm so ready to discuss tonight's episode, "And Straight on 'Til Morning."

Please note, there will be spoilers. Anything below this picture. Will be spoilers. Please don't read until you have watched the episode. Once you have? Come and discuss.

So, let's get started.

The first thing. So it took Baelfire's death for Rumpelstiltskin to turn good again? Is he going to accept now that Henry will be the death of him? Is he doing it because he no longer has his son?

Oh, but what about his son? Neal aka Baelfire was seen at the very end. Of course, we didn't see him alive, but I'm assuming he will be. Once he wakes up, will he face the facts that he might not be going back to Storybrook? Maybe he'll go on a mission and find his way back to discover that Emma and Henry aren't there.

I do have faith that Neal and Emma will reunite. As Rumpelstiltskin said, it's fate. Unfortunately, we might have to wait until the series finale.

Being a book geek, I feel like I need to dig out my Peter Pan book and re-read it again. From what I remember, sure Peter wanted Wendy to stay, but in the end. He let her go. This Peter Pan seems to be evil. One, what does he want with Henry? Does he somehow know that Baelfire will be the father? What's the big deal about Henry? Technically, the only magic really comes from Emma. Baelfire never really had magic, just a fairytale character.

Also, is Captain Hook going to be the good guy, while Peter Pan is the bad guy? Now that would be an interesting twist. 

Who do Tamera and Greg work for? Peter Pan? Did Peter Pan come visit them? At this point, I have no theories on who they work for. I don't recall anyone that was non-magic from season one or early season two. With Peter Pan being the main focus for season three, at least that's what it looks like. There has to be a connection there that involves Tamera and Greg.

The town of Storybrook. What will become of the town? Will they stop the humans from coming? Will we even see them next season? So far, it looks like we'll be going back and forth with three different worlds. I have a feeling, I'll have to rewind or rewatch next season due to being confused.

One last thing to discuss. Emma. Am I the only one disappointed that they really haven't explored more of her character? I know we have learned things here and there, but how well do we really know her? She has magic inside her. Is it because of Prince Charming and Snow White? Where does the magic really come from? I always feel like we get to see her magic and all of a sudden, they seem to forget she even has magic. Did anyone else notice that Regina didn't seem too shock that Emma could do magic? Maybe it's me. Did I miss an episode where she knows about the magic powers that Emma has? I just want to see more of her character. I feel like we have learned more about everyone compared to her. I think we even know Belle more. Maybe next season will be Henry and Emma focused?

Okay, I'm going to stop here. Like I said, I could go on and on. What are your thoughts?

Daily Dream

Had the strangest dream. In my dream, I didn't work at a call center. I worked in some type of lab. What was strange though, was the co-workers. Co-workers from the call center I work with in reality, were also working with me.

In the dream, an island was discovered of Dinosaurs. Think Jurassic Park, but not man made. The island had never been seen before until someone came across it while they were on a boat ride. What was funny though, it wasn't an ocean where they found it. Right in the middle of Lake Erie and yet it seemed to be a big island.

So, we decided to go on a mission and learn more about the island. We all had to go through training for those times we discovered a Dinosaur that could be violent.

Unfortunately I didn't get far. Stupid alarm clock.

City of Bones New International Trailer

Can I just say how excited I am to see another trailer for City of Bones? I can't wait until the movie comes out in August. From the trailer, it looks like it will be a good movie. I just hope they don't ruin the characters, plot, etc. Trailers can fool you of course.

I know it's a movie and it won't be the same. I just want to be able to enjoy the movie like I do the book, but in a different way.

Here is the trailer.

If you haven't read the book
series, please do.
