March Madness 2022 Edition!

How could I stay away during March Madness? Actually, I’m hoping I’ll be able to post more regularly for the next while, as I’m through many of the time intensive things that were filling up my plate. But for today, I’m just going to ease into it with a simple invitation to come join my blog bracket challenge. Last year, the lucky winner got the chance to name one of the main characters in my book (Don’t Go to Sleep, coming out in August!) So when you meet Enzo, you can thank Rachel Cundick for choosing a name so much

A Superb Super Bowl

I realize the Super Bowl isn’t for everyone. And honestly, I am far from a raging NFL fan. Often, the Super Bowl is the only game I watch each year. (I’m a much bigger college football fan, although even then, I typically just watch BYU games and leave the rest alone–even the national championship and bowl games.) But I do watch the Super Bowl each year, mainly because of all the trappings around it. I enjoy seeing what commercials they come up with, I like critiquing the half time show, and I cross my fingers that the game is actually

Olympics: Yay or Neigh?

The new way is much better.) My family and I are watching them quite a bit, but I’ve seen just about no chatter about them online anywhere. I have my own theories about why that’s happening, but I’m curious to see what other people think as well. I’ll run down the possibilities: The fact that the Olympics are taking place in China is a big

Daily Dose of Inspiration

With all the doom and gloom happening seemingly everywhere, I’ve been looking for instances of happiness and positivity whenever I can. One area that’s been encouraging to me recently are the 2020 Paralympic Games happening over in Tokyo right now. I’d always known about the Paralympic Games, but I never actually watched any of the competitions. For one thing, I wasn’t sure how to see any of them. Watching the Olympic Games is something you’d have to hide under a rock to avoid, when the Olympics are on. They’re all over the news, all over television, and people talk about

Olympics: COVID Style

I’m a self-confessed Olympics junkie. Whenever they’re on, I just can’t resist watching them. It doesn’t really matter which sport, and while I generally cheer for the USA, I also root for Germany and Slovakia, and I’m a sucker for any come-from-behind, underdog story. So you would think I’m really looking forward to tonight, when the opening ceremonies kick everything off. (Well, technically it’s already happened, but I generally go for watching the evening highlights. Why? Because I’ve watched the live feeds before, and while NBC’s coverage frustrates me from time to time (since it ignores some sports and usually
