Springing ahead.. falling back… I’m not a fan. I’m super interested in how Congress will vote. I think it’s common belief that Daylight Saving Time was created for farmers and school children. While it definetly benefits them, it was actually put into place to save fuel back in 1918. It went away for awhile and got brought back as “War Time” in 1942. I thought perhaps I had remembered this random tidbit miscorrectly but you can read all about it here:

Personally, I’d love to never have to worry about springing ahead again. When falling back last year, my Grandma got so confused as her internal clock was all out of wack. My sleep habits are bad enough, messing with the time makes it worse and takes me a week or two to get it back to “normalish” for me.

What do you think? Throw the whole thing out the window or should we keep mixing time up?

Movies & TV

Rated 10/10, available on Showtime
All I can say is – holy crap is this show messed up – I loved season 1 and hope it gets a season 2. Very dark and horribly hilarious.

March Movie List:
Hot Shots! (view current list on IMDB). Got a movie that I should watch? Send me a message.

I’m hosting a Radio Show!

Forget Podcasting…I am too unfocused to come up with a consistent topic so have yet to try it (and I never listen to podcasts, so idk..)😂. AMP Radio is truly a dream come true. Honestly, I don’t know if I’ll be any good at hosting a radio show, but ever since falling in love with Pump Up The Volume, the idea of running a pirate radio station has been residing in my head. Since I already make a weekly mixtape to share, I figure this is a natural next step. Is it silly? Yeah, but it’s also fun so 🤪.

It’s interesting to note that there are websites out there that allow you to run real radio shows – I’ve played around with a few but they either aren’t super user friendly or cost a lot to use. Basically, a lot of work needs to go into them.

Amp is looking like the exact opposite so far, it’s truly almost too basic at the moment with it’s features available. I’ve forgotten to hit Follow for hosts I’ve listened to, assuming that clicking on the Heart would complile a list for me somewhere that I could find in the future. If such a list exists, I can’t find it 😂.

I hate getting so excited for beta projects, but I really hope this one grows and sticks around for a long while. When Amazon decides to do something, they usually find a way to make it work and pay off. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one!

If you have access to an iPhone or iPad, you can find Amazon AMP in your app store. Scroll through the channels for Tuesday and I should be on the schedule. If there is an easier way to find people, this is also a feature that I have not found.

A Social Misfit

Scrapt and Altered

I took a Cricut 102 zoom class tonight and am feeling more confident in making multicolored decal creations… this was the project decal, turned out super cute! There’s a really sweet cat graphic that I’ve been saving – black cat with yellow eyes – can’t wait to finally try it out!

Thanks for reading this if you made it this far 😘.
