Why I Became A Vegetarian

If you haven't already been informed, I went vegetarian over the summer. While I see it as one of the best decisions I've made for me as a person overall, I understand that some people often have questions about "why" a person decides to go down the meatless path. So, I'm here to tell why I decided to change my eating habits and become a vegetarian.

1. I Wanted To

    As simple as that. I wanted to do it. Me. Myself. I. I'm a firm believer that when it comes to things I can control, that if I don't want to do them...I don't. I decided to stop eating meat because it was what I wanted to do. I wasn't pressured by another person or felt "obligated, I just did it...for me. When people ask me "why?" I try to think of this answer. I did it for me. My body. My decision.

2. The Animals
    I have a soft spot for animals and the treatment of many animals used for our food is disgusting, to say the least. I figure that by not eating meat I am,…

Crazy Rich Asians: Why I Love How It’s Breaking the Mold

I do not own this picture. All rights to the proper company.
 It’s not everyday that a movie comes out with a mostly Asian cast. Actually scratch that. I cannot think of a time when I saw a Hollywood production that was shown here in theatres in the States with an all Asian cast. However, that is just what Crazy Rich Asians, a romantic-dramedy does. The movie is fresh, exciting, and definitely takes away from the Whitewashing Hollywood is so often known (and often criticized) for.      While the plot line might be a little over done. It’s got a bit of a Cinderella vibe to it, the acting is brilliant, the cinematography is incredible, and the movie is able to pull both comedy and drama together perfectly. Something many movies fail to do.        As someone who’s been watching Asian dramas for a few years now and listening to Kpop music having a cast of mostly Asians was a big deal to me. It’s like: yes, finally, people are going to see why I and others support these productions, why …

Ever, Jane Game Review

The front of Hatch's when you first enter the game.
So, I've been playing the game Ever, Jane for a while now, and I am just going to admit, right here and now that I am totally in love with it. The entire concept is just magical to me, and while there are some issues that need to be worked out (the game is still in open beta) the overall idea and concept of the game is wonderful. For those of you that have been following my blog, you know that I did a Jane Austen Month back last September, so I don't really think it was a surprise that I got into this game at all.
So, what is Ever, Jane?
Ever, Jane is an MMO game based on the world and works of Jane Austen. Set in the Regency in the Town of Tyrehampton your character is dropped off (in the game it's by either an aunt or uncle, but most people just make up their own background stories for their characters. More on that down below). Suddenly you are in charge of your own life in a brand new town that you know nothing abo…

114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding

So, I got done watching the live stream for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! I decided to post my thoughts here for you all to see. From the hats to the adorable royal kids to just the overall happy vibes at this wedding, this wedding was a joy to watch. I hope you all enjoy my 114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding. Fair warning though, some of them might not make any sense, and please forgive any bad spelling, grammar, or punctuation as I was just typing these on my phone as I went. Thank you all again for reading!
My Thoughts So many hats!!!A lot of celebs Everyone looks, or most people anyway, very happy. This music is lit. I’m digging it. Alright. These people look less happy. I wonder if something is wrong. You conduct that band!I love the random outside shot with the birds for some reason. That car is moving very slowly. Is there a speed limit at royal weddings?And we’re back in the church. And back outside Who are these people?Aww both ladies are…

Song of the Week and why I love Indie Music

I thought that it might be a fun thing to tell you all what song I have been obsessed with the most over the week. This one is one that I've discovered very recently (as in like a couple days ago) but it's already one of my favorite songs I think I have ever heard.

Are you ready for it?


If you thought I was going to mention Taylor Swift, you'd be wrong.


The song of the week is Ocean Eyes by Billie Eilish!!!


This song has a great sound to it, and the lyrics are just beautiful. This song reminds me of something I would hear from Birdy and reminds me of why I love Indie music so much. One of the reasons being that a lot of the time the quality is a hundred times better than what I hear on the radio. Now don't get me wrong, I listen to mainstream songs now and I probably always will, but there's a reason a lot of my favorite songs are from indie artists. There's just something so powerful about lyrics that make you feel something and can move you, and indie songs l…

My Unplanned Hiatus

It seems like every time I set out to accomplish something when it comes to the Internet I end up failing miserably. Take my like two-month hiatus from writing on my blog. I don't know why it took me so long to finally come back to writing, but I do know that for the past eight or so weeks, I just have not felt like it, and that's okay. I realize now that I was burning myself out. Making myself upload and write three posts a week was getting not only time-consuming, but also stress-inducing, so I know now that posting once or twice a week is probably a better option, although I don't know if I'll ever get back to posting regularly. Here's to hoping though.

Love,
Baleigh
