The Legend of Zelda; Breath of the Wild


Today, I’m doing something a little different from usual. If you read my “About Me” post, you would know that I love video games. In particular, the “Legend of Zelda” franchise. I’m going to do a game review on “The Legend of Zelda; Breath of The Wild”, the newest and most critically acclaimed addition to this already phenomenal series. Before I start, I just want to say that


it is a completely open-air game, with MASSIVE exploring space, (divided into regions) 76 side quests in total and dozens upon dozens of items, weapons and creatures. There are also many mini games, little easter eggs, (not literal easter eggs; little fun surprises and helpful collectibles.)

Basically, you start the game with your memories gone, with only a strange, woman’s voice to guide you. Later, you find out that the kingdom of Hyrule is in grave danger. A beast named Calamity Ganon has destroyed Hyrule, turning it into a desolate land of monsters and ruin. Few villages and towns have survived, and the princess, Zelda, is the only one keeping Calamity Ganon from destroying Hyrule completely. Your ultimate task is to defeat Calamity Ganon and aid Princess Zelda before that happens.

Here is one of my own screenshots in the middle of in-game play, on my own Nintendo Switch at home.

What I love about this game is that is is completely open-ended. Don’t feel like continuing the storyline for a while? No prob. Explore the vast regions of Hyrule, meet new people, get stronger, and spend as much time as you like doing just that. Also, it is not a short game. You will not finish it in a week. You will get plenty of enjoyable play time out of it, and by plenty, I REALLY mean it.

For now, I hope you enjoyed my game review, maybe later I will write a little more on the subject. But for now, that’s it! I highly recommend this game, but a thing to note is that this game is currently only available on the Nintendo Switch or the WiiU. However, they have discontinued making the WiiU, so it is only available on the WiiU if you already have the gaming system.

Anyway, have a great day!

ABC of Me!


As my first post, I wrote a simple about me. The majority of my class wrote an ABC of Me along-side the About Me post! It’s a good idea, so I’ll do the same. Also, I simply felt like I haven’t written anything about me for a long time.  (To read the original About Me post, click here or find it on the About Me page under my tagline!)

A ~ ARMS is one of my favorite brawling games on the Nintendo Switch.

B ~ I make the BEST brownies.

C ~ I used to have two cats.

D ~ I have one dog.

E ~ My scrambled eggs are DA BOMB. (Mostly because I include BACON BITS!!)

F ~ Once, without looking and without spell-check, I spelled “super-cali-fragilistic– expiali-docious” correct. (Which roughly means; “atoning for educability through delicate beauty”. Not even sure what that means either, but whatever.)

G ~ I have been watching Grey’s Anatomy for at least 4 months now, and I’m still not caught up.

H ~ I hate spice, but I don’t particularly hate the feeling of having my mouth on fire via wasabi. WASABI.

I ~ I am currently writing a story called Infiltration.

J ~ I have never laid eyes on a container of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, much less tasted it.

K ~ For some reason, the idea of the Krusty Krab from Spongebob makes me want to barf. Please forgive me, Spongebob lovers! *Gets stampeded by Spongebob fans*

L ~ Whenever I play Pokemon, the first water type Pokemon I get is always nicknamed Layana. I don’t know why, it just sounds like a pretty, water-ish name.

M ~ For some reason, I only ever dream/ remember my dreams on Mondays. 

N ~ Surprisingly, I think the best brand of chips is actually No Name. It’s really surprising, but it’s totally true! Barbecue and dill pickle No Name chips 4 lyfe!

O ~ I didn’t know that OJ stood for Orange Juice until I was at least 11.

P ~ I am fluent in the language of puns.

Q ~ the only thing I know about Mexico is that it’s hot and that there is a place called Quintana Roo.

R ~ I LOVE to read. My bookshelf is literally overflowing so bad I’m using the shelves in the guest room.

S ~ Whether I like salsa or not literally depends on my mood. No joke.

T ~ I am a little tilde happy. I love and overuse tildes. (In case you don’t know what a tilde is, here is one one looks like! > ~ < That is a tilde!)

U ~ I have wanted to try playing Undertale for 3 years now; still haven’t gotten it.

V ~ When I was 6, Velma from Scooby-Doo was practically my role model.

W ~  I love to write, I want to be an author.

X ~ When I first played Pokemon X, I thought getting the legendary Pokemon Xerneas was a big accomplishment. Then I realized that it was a necessary part of the story line halfway into the game, and that practically everyone has it.

Y ~ I have never tried a Yo-Yo. Ever.

Z ~ I LOVE to play “Legend of Zelda“. I have Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch, Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask on 3DS XL, and Twilight Princess on an older model of the Wii.


So that’s it for me! I would love to read stuff about you, so feel free to leave a comment! Anyway, have a great day!

Two Truths & One Lie

At one point, you’ve probably played Two Truths & One Lie. Maybe with your friends, or as a get-to-know-you in some sort of activity or camp. Unless you haven’t, the rules are simple. I will write down 3 facts about me (per question) and 2 will be true, but 1 will be a lie. Your job is to guess which one is the lie! Personally, I can’t come up with one unless I have 10 full, uninterrupted minutes of thinking. Anyway, I’m going to write down 3 about me, feel free to make a few about you in the comments! (I will answer!) Also, one of my friends did this on her blog, (it was originally her idea) so click here to read it.

(P.S, some of the answers may be in previous posts! Mwa ha ha ha!)

Here’s a small piece of art I did specifically for this. In a way, I guess it’s kinda a title/illustration?

#1.) a.) At one point, my uncle had 5 cats. (At once!)

b.) I have 3 Maine Coon cats named Max, Ruby and Molly named after a tv show I watched as a kid.

c.) The last pickle I ate was 6 years ago.


#2.) a.) I love killing off characters when I write, but I hate when they die in books and movies.

b.) The last time I painted my nails was 3 years ago.

c.) One of my all-time favorite board games is “Settlers of Catan”.


#3.) a.) Another one of my all-time favorite games is called “Exploding Kittens”.

b.) I have a Labrador dog named Thor.

c.) One of my favorite places “Where I Live” (hint hint) is Beaver Tails. (Unfortunately, it’s closed down.)


So that’s it! The answer key will be in the comment section, so if you want to guess which ones are the lie, make sure not to read my comment till you’re done. I would love to hear some about you too! Anyway, have a great day.

Where I Live

As of 2016, the Comox Valley has a population of around 66, 527, with a growth rate of around 4.7%. That includes Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland, Royston, Union Bay, Fanny Bay, Black Creek and Merville. Most people consider Denman Island and Hornby Island to be a part of the population as well. Comox Valley is on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

In the Comox Valley, one of my favourite places by far is Mt. Washington. I love to ski, and on Mt. Washington, there are plenty of runs. In total, there are 5 chairlifts and 6 magic carpets. The magic carpets are for beginners, it’s how you get back up the bunny hills. The five charlifts, in order of difficulty, (easiest to hardest) are;

(The magic carpets) The Hawk, the Eagle, the Whiskeyjack, the Sunrise and the Boomerang. The middle three could be in any order.

Here’s a map of the downhill skiing/snowboarding trails on Mt. Washington!

Once every week I go up there and just go skiing with some friends. There’s plenty of good food, (by “food” I mind as well be saying “pizza”. There is SO MUCH PIZZA up there! But it’s really good pizza!)

One of my favourite places to eat there is Ted’s. They have so much! Poutine, nachos, burgers, you name it. It’s also delicious! Ted’s can be found near the entrance to the lodge closest to the Eagle chair.

There also used to be this place called Beaver Tails up there. Unfortunately, it’s closed down now, but it was a tiny little nook place. There was no seating, so you found see tons of people wandering outside with Beaver Tails, but it was pretty much similar to the BEST waffle place ever. The waffles would come in the shape, size and pattern of the average beaver tail, and you would be able to order tons of delicious treats to put on top. Strawberries, chocolate syrup, bananas, icing sugar, candied bacon. Plus tons of other fruits and sauces!

Anyway, I’ve told you about one of my favourite places, what about your favourite place, if you could choose? Have a great day!

Favourite Things Party!

Peanut Butter Cup Heart Robert Fornal via Compfight

Have you ever done a favorite things party? They’re really fun, I just recently did one.

 Pretty much what it is is a party where you buy 5 of one of your favorite things that is under 7 dollars. At least 5 people have to come, and when they get there, each person puts their name in a bowl 5 times. (On different slips of paper!)

Then, one person starts. They show what their favorite thing is, then draws 5 different names from the bowl. If they choose themselves or someone who has already been chosen, (for that item) their name goes back in the bowl. Those 5 people each get one of that person’s favorite thing! Usable names pulled out of the bowl goes off to the side.

Then, the first person who’s name was drawn does the exact same thing! Once everybody has gone, each person should have 5 different favorite things of other people’s.

Its really fun! For example, I brought 5 MASSIVE peanut butter cups from Rocky Mountain Chocolates as my favorite thing. ( I do LOOOOOVE peanut butter cups!) The peanut butter cups went to 5 other people, and I got 5 different things in return! One of which was actually my sketchbook where I draw my manga and anime.

If you did a favorite things party, which 5 items would you bring? Have a great day!

Christmas Board Games


I’m pretty sure that during the holidays, every family plays at least one board game. For me, it’s inevitable that I get frustrated with SOMEONE when so many people are around, so this is a good thing for me to get my frustrations out on too. You could absolutely crush someone that you’re annoyed at, and they won’t even know you’re frustrated at them. Anyway, here are a couple board games that are, (in my opinion) amazingly fun games you could play with family or friends during the holidays.

1.) Monopoly

I’m pretty sure everyone has played this one before, but if you haven’t, you should try it. It’s really fun! A whole bunch of recreational centres have this game. To find out how to play, click here.

2.) Suspend

This isn’t really a board game, but it’s a really fun game to play. Also, it’s not very widely known like Monopoly. To learn how to play, click here.

3.) Risk

With my family, whenever we play this game someone is crying by the end and someone doesn’t get dinner. It’s also not especially widely known, but it’s pretty fun! To learn how to play, click here.

4.) Backgammon

This one is WAY more popular among adults then kids. I would always play with my dad, it’s super fun! To find out how to play, click here.

5.) Settlers Of Catan

I saved my personal best for last! This one is my all-time favourite, and was introduced to me last year by my brother. There are 2 extension kits, (the extension kit adds more gameplay features, basically making it more fun) and I LOVE IT! To learn how to play click here.

Welp, those were 5 super fun board games you can play over the holidays! I would recommend all of these, they are all the kinds of games you would play over and over again! Is there one you love to play? Have a great day!

Snow Sports!

Yep, it’s that time of year again. The nearest mountain opened on Dec. 1st, and a little more than half my class is counting the days till they get up there, including me. Most of us ski, some snowboard, and some just like being up there. Personally, I have been skiing for 4 years, and this year is the year I want to try snowboarding. Every year I get a mountain map, and I highlight every run I do. Each year one of my goals are to do every run on the mountain! (Not counting the cross-country runs). Last year, I only missed three runs on the whole mountain. Two double-black diamonds, and one that is black at the top and blue at the bottom. I was sooo close! Do you do any snow sports?

Have a great day!

Thor, My Doggy!

Thor, my doggy, is a one and-a half year old Golden Doodle puppy. I gotta say, I love dogs and cats all equal, but my favourite doggy breed is definitely the golden doodle. I had 2 cats recently, brother and sister Maine Coons named Max and Ruby. I love them and my doggy so, so much! So, I’m going to include a couple facts about my favourite doggy breed!

  • The golden doodle is a hybrid between a poodle and a golden retriever, which is where it got it’s name!
  • Golden Doodles are hypoallergenic, meaning they have hair, not fur, so they don’t shed and people mildly allergic to dogs don’t need to worry about allergic reactions!
  • They are super family-friendly and pet-friendly, so they are a great starting dog for a family!
  • Golden Doodles are super-easy to train, making it a good dog to train for first-timers or timid owners.
  • These doggies aren’t well suited to apartments, because they like large, fenced in backyards.
  • Golden doodle come in multiple colours, despite the name. They can come in white, pale-cream, red, golden, black, brown, dark-brown and silver.

This is my doggy, Thor!

Hope you liked the post! Do you have a favourite dog or cat breed? Have a great day!

Drawing Challenge!

If you read my About Me post, you would know I love ♥ all types of art ♥ , but especially drawing and sketching. I got the idea to try to make my own drawing challenge! I thought I should post it so if anyone else loves to draw and sketch, or even if they don’t like to, they can try it!

Pretty much what it is is a list of a whole bunch of drawing prompts. There is one for every day of the month, (any month) and the goal is to draw something, even if it is a tiny little doodle, of the first thing that comes to mind when you read the prompt. It could be a piece Van Gogh would be proud of or something so bad the dog wouldn’t even WANT to eat it, it doesn’t matter! You don’t have to be good at art to do this challenge. In fact, this could be how you get better!

After the month is over, even if you missed a couple days, I can bet your mind will be blown when you see how much your artwork has gotten better. I’ve also included a picture of what came to my mind when I read the first prompt!

About Me!

Hello people! My name is Sarah, and I live in Comox, B.C, Canada.

I have a golden doodle puppy named Thor at home. I’m pretty sure he can turn anyone into a puddle of goo.

I love to rollerblade, as well as draw manga. My favourite anime is Naruto, by far. I have a weird obsession of having Grumpy Cat for any sort of personal background. Also, my favourite season is winter by far, because I love to ski!  I absolutely LOVE playing games like Legend of Zelda, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, and Splatoon. I have been playing Legend of Zelda, Ocarina Of Time for two years and I still can’t get past the Shadow Temple! (I’m pretty sure Bongo Bongo (the boss of the Shadow Temple, despite the horrible name, is really hard to beat!) thinks I’m the worst player EVER!)

Also, I’m that person who hates mushroom every way except for stuffed mushroom caps. I mean, that’s just plain strange. Also, even though it sounds weird, I eat tomato sandwiches. I mean, just toast, cheese, mayo, and tomato. It’s surprisingly delicious.

Around two or three times a year, I try coffee all over again (especially the white chocolate mocha from Starbucks ’cause it sounds like I’d enjoy it) because some people keep saying “oh, taste buds change!” For me, they really don’t. Especially the white chocolate mocha.

I’ve listed a couple of things about me, you could always leave a comment about you!

Anyway, thanks a latte for reading!
