About Me

                                                    (My Hermonie Low-Key Cosplay)
Hello, I’m Sammy!
          I’m a Microbiologist by trade but a nerd at heart. I started this blog because I want to try to connect all areas of my couch potato life. I am going to do my best to motivate you to try new things and become more active with reviews, tips and tricks, and things to try. I will definitely be a learning curve.
          Besides my love of science, fandoms, and exercising, I am also an animal lover, HGTV fanatic and foodie. An odd combination of things but there’s so many new things to try and things to fan girl over.
I will try my best to post an article every Wednesday. I will also do my best to post anything that I find helpful to your health and/or interesting things worth trying, with touches of my personal life thrown in. You can also find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, (mostly Pinterest because I’m addicted).
And if anyone ever wants to talk about fandoms, exercising, nutrition or really anything, please subscribe and email directly. I enjoy talking with anyone and am a pretty good listener if I do say so myself.
Keep in contact!

Why I Will Always Choose Slytherin

The world of Harry Potter is amazing. I have loved reading the books ever since I was eleven and picked up “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. This book series actually helped me learn to read and actually make me want to read which is something I will always be grateful for. And just like I’m sure most of you have, I have done countless Harry Potter sorting hat quizzes both on and off Pottermore. For the majority of the time I get Slytherin as my house, with a couple of Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws mixed in. However, one part of the book always stands out to me: When Harry is getting sorted and asks not to be put into Slytherin. Part of me does get upset at the prejudice the house faces but the main point I try to take away is that, the sorting hat takes Harry’s feelings into account. Just like in life, you can choose who you become. So if I was up at the front of the Great Hall getting sorted (still waiting on that letter McGonagall), instead of asking the hat “not Slytherin, not…
The art of becoming a French fry, as you can tell I was hungry when I made that title however, it is what I’m going to talk about; having the motivation to become more desirable to yourself (I find French fries very desirable, but please feel free to substitute) by breaking it up into small chunks.  Motivation is that ever elusive feeling. That surge of energy to focus on completing a task at hand. That prideful sense of accomplishment when it’s done. And then it goes away, and typically, for most of us, it goes away for a significant amount of time. This is no BueƱo. How in the world are you supposed to hang onto motivation when your bed is soooo comfy?  I will admit I am a total couch potato, and yet I like the idea of having motivation and accomplishing so much with my life. And I’ll guarantee I’m not the only one. Us,  humans, we’re weird. Well we’re in luck, there are some cheat codes that have worked for me and hopefully will help any of you: 1.Be Hermonie Granger.

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus. I heard this saying so much when I was growing up living with my grandparents. I remember not understanding, Men can’t be that different from me, can they? Yes, yes they can.           It wasn’t until I started dating my husband (who was only my second boyfriend) that I began to understand that his views, upbringing, and demeanor was absolutely different than my own. I found that fascinating and frustrating. We’ve fought and we still fight from time to time but that’s more out of pure stubbornness than it’s anything else. We have been dating for 10 years and married for 1, and in that time I learned a few things that have helped our relationship last that long. 1)Communicate. I understand that is an obvious one but I swear it’s the most important. Talk about anything. Talk about why you’re upset, talk about what turns you on, talk about the damn weather. Just talk. No one should be expected to mind read so don’t expect him to. 2)Share a hobby…
