Lessons From Avengers: Endgame

Whether you’re a superhero fan or not, you’ve probably heard that Avengers: Endgame was released last month (I probably tweeted about it too much myself, so I’m sorry if you think I’m a crazy obsessive fan now; you had to learn that at some point though, right?). I watched the movie opening night and was inspired to gather my thoughts into a blog post. I wanted to include a few of the lessons that I noticed throughout the movie (like my lessons from Captain Marvel post), but since this was such an epic film, I also wanted to include my favorite moments as well.

SPOILER WARNING: This post contains MAJOR spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, so only read this post if you have already watched the movie/don’t care about spoilers.

Lemur Adventures

If you’ve been keeping up with my blog/life, you might remember me mentioning that I’ve been volunteering at a local fossil center. I mainly volunteer once a week for around three hours, so it doesn’t take up much of my time. Since the fossil division has more projects than employees, I help them out with smaller, more meticulous tasks. Like cutting out foam, housing fossils, and taking pictures for 3D modeling. It might not sound like the funnest way to spend my free time, but I personally find it interesting! Plus, it helps out the lemur center and any researchers who want to use the fossils.

Last weekend, the lemur center even offered tours for volunteers. Naturally, I said yes and immediately signed up for a time slot. Who wouldn’t want to spend their afternoon hanging out and taking pictures of lemurs?!

Avengers End Game: Ulta Collection

At the beginning of April, I was pleasantly surprised to find a superhero-themed subject line from Ulta in my inbox. I guess End Game is popular enough for even beauty stores to release their own superhero-themed products (I believe Sephora did one as well that’s only available in another country?). Anyways, being the nerd I am, I knew I had to go out and pick up a few items, especially since there was a buy two, get two free sale going on at Ulta.

My Favorite Avenger

Avengers: End Game is almost here! I’m excited yet sad at the same time. This might be the end for some of the heroes that I’ve been rooting for over the past ten years. I really hope that if it is the end of the line, the fallen heroes will at least get an ending they deserve.

Anyways, in order to prepare myself for End Game, today I wanted to share my thoughts about my favorite Avenger. Which is…Captain America!

March Library Haul

Good afternoon everyone! Today was a strange day. I almost made it to work before receiving a call from my boss telling me not to come into work today. Apparently, the internet wasn’t working properly at work, so everyone was going home. If there aren’t any customers, there’s no point in having me there. Don’t worry-my boss at least paid me for thirty minutes since he informed me of this incident so late. I wasn’t about to let my trip into town go to waste though-I met with an academic advisor for my community classes (surprisingly, they have a building that’s literally five minutes from my job), and I FOUND A LIBRARY!

To be honest, I think I visited this library a couple of times when I was in high school because it was closer to my school. Normally, however, I used another one that was closer to my house. Both are in the same county though, so my card works at both. I was a bit nervous about using my card because I only used it a couple of times these past five years when I was visiting my family from college. My parents also moved to another county (although we’re basically on the border and still frequently shop/work in that area), so I wasn’t sure if my card would still work.
