The Big Bang Theory – Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock!

The Big Bang Theory – Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock!

Promotional 0

Sheldon is undoubtedly my favorite character and the funniest on The Big Bang Theory. I love his crazy quirks and the clever things he comes up with. One of the classic “Sheldonisms” is his version of Rock, Paper, Scissors – Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock! That episode was so hilarious and his logic of which beats which is comic genious. I’ve never actually tried using his version with my friends… Read more »

The Big Bang Theory – What Does Howard’s Mom Actually Look Like?!

The Big Bang Theory – What Does Howard’s Mom Actually Look Like?!

Promotional 3

One of the biggest mysteries of the awesome show, The Big Bang Theory, is what does Howard’s mom actually look like?! I love her character and think the relationship between her and Howard is so ridiculous, but is can be so true for many people out there, which makes it even funnier. It’s so hilarious how much Howard depends on his mom, even though he hates to admit how much… Read more »

I’m Quitting the Internet!

On My Mind 7

Yes, you heard that right folks! Since my USMLE Step 1 exam is about a month away, it’s Crunch Time, baby! Sigh, which means I need to cut out all distractions, for real this time.

Is It Worth It?!

On My Mind 12

You know that feeling of insignificance where you wonder if people even hear you? If people overlook what you say in favor of other, more important people? Do you even make a difference? What is the point in doing all this work if no one even cares what you have to say? I’ve been doing this blog thing for a few years now and it hasn’t gotten to where I… Read more »

I will update this post with a picture (probably on Wednesday) of all the physical books I still need to read, not to mention the ton I have on my kindle. Seriously, it’s getting out… Read more »

And the Lesson Here, is to Always Say No!

And the Lesson Here, is to Always Say No!

BG1, Parenting 11

I make it a general rule to always say no when BG1 wants to buy an app or buy one of those “in-app purchases” on one of her games. I think it’s a waste of money and she can get just as much fun out of the game for free. However, since she did receive a hefty amount of Apple Store credit as a past birthday gift, she very casually… Read more »
