Fandom of the Month – March 2017

Fandom of the Month – March 2017

So, I decided to try out Fandom of the Month. Not sure how long I’ll keep it. I guess I just have to wait and see what I get. I usually give a subscription box a few tries before I decide no or not.

The first box I received was Star Trek.  I’ve seen many, many Star Trek episodes. Ranging from the original to the movies. So, I’m okay with this box. I do hope we can get a Star Wars Box again sometime. I missed out on that one, which was a few months ago. I believe? Too bad Fandom of the Month doesn’t do past boxes where you can buy them. I would be on that.

First, when you open the box. You see the magnet. Love it! But, not sure where to put it. I have lots of magnets that I can’t figure out what to do with. 


Next, you have the pouch. Love this. I’ve been on a kick with bags or pouches. I hardly use a purse anymore. If I do it’s for special occasions. 


The first piece of jewelry is a ring. If you watch Star Trek: The Next Generation. You should recognize the visor that La Forge wears.


Next up, we have friendship bracelets. Not sure when I’ll wear this. I have close friends, but none of them are really Star Trek fans. So will have to come up with a plan on this. 


Earrings? Love this one. I’ve been looking for more fun earrings like this. Can’t wait to wear them! 


For the necklace, I love how I have my own Bat’leth now. I believe that’s what it’s called. Again, not a huge Star Trek fan but I recognize the weapon. 

Why Can’t I Live in a Jane Austen Novel? 

Is there ever going to be a day where I’ll want to stop living in a fictional world? There are many worlds I would love to live in. Who wouldn’t want to live in Narnia or attend Hogwarts? 

If there is a world I would love to live in, it would be a Jane Austen novel. I would love it if I could find my own Mr. Darcy. Why him? I ask myself that question many times. Why go for the jerk? Well, he was a jerk at the beginning. His pride taking over. But, who doesn’t have pride? Everyone is guilty of it at some point. If it’s not Darcy, it’s Captain Wentworth. Reunited love, another favorite of mine. 

I always love when people remind me that women were not equals or the fact there were germs everywhere. Yes, I do think about that. I would miss my shower, baths, you name it. But, if I was born in that time I’m sure I would be fine. Right? Hopefully. 

I’m sure I’m not alone in this. At least I hope so. But escaping the real world for the fictional world is a great way to escape expectations one faces. Not caring what people might think. I can be who I want to be. Maybe I want to see things through the main character or maybe just be a character on the side lines. 

Now I’m thinking I should escape the real world tonight before the work week. Maybe escape into the world of War and Peace.

One Simple Rule

Shouldn’t there be a rule that couples or even married couples need to follow? Especially, when it has to do with single people? I’m happy for them. Glad they found someone, but to talk about relationships among your single friends? That is a big no-no.

Single people don’t always want to hear about how relationships work. What do they have to bring to the conversation? Sure, they could talk about a past relationship. But, there is a chance the relationship is meant to be forgotten.  A closed chapter. 

Here’s a tip. If you are with a group of people. There will be times, single people are among you. Wait until you are away from them. If you have a single friend trying to change the subject? Change the subject. Don’t make it so your single friend tries to change the subject at least five times. 

Otherwise, something might be thrown at you. Not that I almost did it the other day. But, it was tempting.
