Lately...and Four More Things - Day Four

This week off has not been a good one so far. Wednesday started off good enough, I walked but mostly ran two miles, in the rain too! It was great and I felt so accomplished. But after that I went to visit my parents, only to find out that my dad was feeling horrible. He's been sick for weeks now, and he is never feeling good enough to even go to the doctor's office. So, I took him to the ER. They did several tests and said everything was normal. He had some IV medicines and then they sent us home. On the bright side, he is feeling a ton better! On the not-so-bright side, I am sick now. Ever since Wednesday night, I've had a sore throat, sinus congestion, and cough. After taking several pills and watching SO much netflix, I am feeling a bit better, but still not 100%. But laying around gets terribly boring so here I am, back to blogging. In case you forgot, I was participating in the Four More Things blog challenge with At Four O'Clock. Here is day four!




 

Four Secrets or guilty pleasures. This is kind of difficult, because most things I like are actually quite embarrassing to most people.

1. I own every single Jonas Brother CD.

Jonas Brothers

Okay, so this is not a current obsession. I don't like them at all now, but at one time I was a huge fan.  I was a pretty huge fan around 2008 - 2010. I saw their 3D concert in the theater and I was a bit older than most people seeing it. I think it may have been when they had their own show on Disney that made them unlikable. I haven't gotten rid of their cd's though...every now and then I get a craving to hear Burnin' Up and I just can't make myself throw their albums away. Haha.

2. I love young adult fiction. 

Seriously. That IS motivating. A user-generated card from someecards.com, posted to Tumblr by Jacquelyn Levasseur

This isn't that uncommon in people my age, I don't think. But sometimes, I find it a lot easier to read youth books than adult books. Sometimes it can be a little annoying if the main character is in middle school, but honestly if you look at a list of my favorite books, you will see mostly young adult books. The Hunger Games, Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and Harry Potter to name a few.

3. Nerdy shows like Doctor Who and Merlin.

every fandom ever.

I've mentioned these many times before, so they aren't secrets. But I am actually quite a big fan of Sci-fi tv. As lame as they may be, I really am addicted. Doctor Who, Merlin, Sherlock, old Supernatural, House...etc. I have watched waaaay too much television.

4. I have the Lego Harry Potter wii game, years 1-4. 



And the fact that I can't get past Chamber of Secrets is really driving me crazy.

Yeah... I'm a bit hesitant to admit it, but those nerdy shows... I watch them too. Shh... don't spread that around.

Glad that your dad is feeling better!

I still read a lot of young adult fiction, too, most of it from the '90s and '80s.

Glad your dad is okay! And I hope you feel better soon too. I was a little sick a few weeks ago -- not fun.

Your "confessions" are awesome. I think it's so cool that you are into the fandom things and don't even care what people think. Haha!
