Kids Playing on Nintendo DS

With Christmas around the corner, I've been having flashbacks to the gifts I used to receive as a kid. Nintendo DS games were definitely some of my favorite! If you grew up with a Nintendo DS, I guarantee you've played at least one of these games.

1. Nintendogs



Playing this after school was the next best thing to coming home to an actual dog. Name something better than virtual puppy playdates!

2. Kirby Super Star Ultra

I absolutely loved how there was a different helper for every power (and they're all adorable)!

3. Cooking Mama

Cooking Mama was one of the most iconic cooking games out there!

7. Drawn to Life

A game that combined art, stories, and video games was like a dream come true for me. This was by far one of my favorite games as a kid!

8. Brain Age

This is one of the few educational games I've come across that was actually fun.

10. Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing let gamers discover a whole new world of little animal friends! I remember legitimately getting emotional when one of the in-game characters had to move away.

I think keeping up with this game is where I got my quick reflexes.

12. Rhythm Heaven

I personally never owned this game, but my little cousin let me borrow it once and it's pretty addicting. Also, any game that incorporates music into it is bound to catch my attention.

This was my brother's all time favorite game. If you're into puzzles and mystery novels, this is the game for you!

14. Littlest Pet Shop: Winter

This was similar to Nintendogs, except for when you needed your daily kitty fix!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist.
