Wonder: Book Of The Month

wonder.jpgWonder is a children’s book about August Pullman and his story about his life with a facial deformity.

August, a home schooled fifth-grader living in North River Heights in Upper Manhattan with his parents, details a bunch of medially needed surgery’s, the passing of his dog, and starting to go to an actual school.

As sad as I am for August and his circumstances, you see how bright he is. The book is laced with a few laugh out loud moments. Its about life and how some kids can be cruel but how a child works through these times of their life’s.

It really worth a read no matter your age, it will provide you a different perspective on life.

Book Of The Month: The Girl On The Train

The_Girl_on_the_TrainThe Girl On The Train is a psychological thriller novel by author Paula Hawkins that was released on January 13, 2015. The story is a first-person narrative told from the point of view of three women. Rachel Watson is a 32-year-old alcoholic, Anna is young stay-at-home mother, and Megan Hipwell who has a troubled past and who lives down the street.

The film rights for the novel were acquired in March 2014 by DreamWorks Pictures, that was released on September 20, 2016.

I was looking to read something to read for April and ran into a few ideas. For this month I had decided to grab the audio book via my local library’s app on my iPad. I have read a bunch of reviews that were incredibly positive. I will watch the film after I listen to the book.

In The Name of…

cropped-img_13531.jpg. . .All things that are gnomish!

Before officially playing World Of Warcraft, I had a plethora of free to play mmo’s that I would enjoy. During that time, I did really did not think about how to name my toon’s. Up until one day, a friend and I were chatting it up over coffee. She was studying English in college. She wanted to be a teacher. During the course of the conversation she says, “To become a better person, you have to realize all of your mistakes that you had made in your life, know where you came from, even down to the letter, and where you want to go.” She continues to tell me the meaning of her real name. It was very interesting.

That had stuck with me for years, and remembered that when I first logged into the character creation screen for the first time. It also reminded me of the research that I did after our talk. My real life name is Andrea Jean. It loosely translates, from French, “By the grace of god, you shall be strong and brave.” Those are big shoes to fill. I wanted a toon name to match that. So, Off to the internet I went to see what I could come up with.

Zephirah, is a feminine variant of Zephyr from Greek meaning “West Wind”, it also has some Hebrew affiliation and is translated to mean “Dawn”. So essentially, if translated from the names origins and stitched together, my name means “Dawn of the West Wind”

Since then, alts have had some sort of Z name with a meaning behind it, Unless it is named something different, and it usually comes with a story. For example, my Tauren druid, her name is Mauimoo. A bunch of us were talking in Alea Iacta Est guild chat about vacations. A few minuets she was born! She, Role Play wise, is an absolute nut job & I love her for it!
