Something Interesting Is Happening!

Published November 29, 2018 by Shay Taree

As I’m sure many of you saw my post yesterday I’m trying to use Instagram for only 30 mins each day. Well thankfully yesterday I was pretty successful. I actually didn’t go over my 30 min limit by the time I went to bed at around 10 pm. I also noticed quite a few positives.

I was definitely able to get a lot more things done. I didn’t realize how much time I spent on Instagram until I couldn’t spend anytime on it. When I got home from work I was able to work out, do some laundry, do research for a video idea, and also read a physical book as opposed to an e book. Quite a bit was done since I didn’t spend mindless minutes checking Instagram or getting stuck in the black hole that is stalking people’s pages.

But I did noticed some definite downsides. While I wasn’t using Instagram as much I noticed that the time I spent on my phone though was going up. Since I couldn’t use the entertainment of Instagram I was finding other forms of entertainment on my device. I was using Facebook a lot more (surprisingly), Twitter (which is awesome), and also watching more youtube videos. Usually each day my usage is about 8 hours on my phone. Well yesterday I went up to 10 which was mainly because of youtube.

So it seems my mind is substituting Instagram for different apps to occupy my time. But I have noticed that I’m picking up my phone less and less which is a good thing. So how to counteract the new issues of using other entertaining apps. Well I’m not going to put a limit on them yet but I am going to use today (Thursday) to only use my phone to read my ebook while at work. Plus I’ve been meaning to finish reading it anyway.

So let’s see what happens today and for those of you out there that are trying to see if you can do this I think you can. Trust me!

Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone Book Review!

Published February 27, 2018 by Shay Taree

I’m sure that many of you are look at this title and going has this girl really not read he Harry Potter series! Well I’m here to tell you that it’s false! I have read the Harry Potter books and I own all the Harry Potter books but it’s been a while since I have re-read them. So I decided to reinsert myself into this glamours world.

The first book of Harry Potter is where you are first introduced to the wizarding world and of course Harry Potter himself. It’s starts off with you learning that Harry’s parents have died and as a young child he is sent to live with his Aunt, Uncle, and cousin who treat Harry like complete crap.

Harry then learns he is a wizard and is sent off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This is where he learns that he is famous due to defeating the dark wizard that killed his parents and also makes his first real friends which are Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

But there is something evil going on at Hogwarts and it involves the sorcerers stone which someone wants to steal. So Harry, Ron, and Hermione try and figure out who wants it and how they can try to protect it.

Even though I had already ready this book servers times it still had me excited from beginning to end. Also since I read the illustrated edition it was a lot of fun being able to also look at the pictures to go along with the story.

At this point I have now moved on the 2nd book in the series which I’m also loving. But if your one of the few people that have yet to read this series I definitely recommend reading it. You definitely won’t be disappointed.

If you have read this book or the series comment down below and let me know what you thought of it. If your someone that hasn’t read this series yet then tell me why you haven’t.

Always & Forever Lara Jean By Jenny Han Book Review!

Published February 22, 2018 by Shay Taree

I have finally finished the Lara Jean series written by Jenny Han and I completely loved it. Always & Forever Lara Jean is the finally book in this series installment and it definitely didn’t disappoint.

Always & Forever starts off during the later half of Lara Jean’s senior year of high school with her relationship with Peter. It takes you through the ups and downs of her senior year including on where her relationship with Peter will stand once they go off to college in the fall.

I definitely enjoyed reading this book and couldn’t put it down. It definitely made me think of my own senior year experience especially when it came to my friends going away to college. That definitely almost caused me to shed a few tears.

I think this was the book that we definitely saw Lara Jean grow up and do things for herself. You saw her make decisions that she didn’t know that she would have to make but you saw her make them of her own free will and what would be best for her. While she did think of the relationships with her family and friends she also thought about what would help her in the long run.

This was definitely an enjoyable read and I’m so happy with the ending of this series. So I definitely recommend reading this series if you haven’t already.

Also comment down below on your thoughts on this series if you’ve already read it or let me know if you plan to read this series.
